With this past Monday’s new moon in Pisces, this week is a wonderful time for new beginnings—both large and small—in any aspect of your life. Start that project, implement that exercise practice, plant those (literal or figurative) seeds, and use the energy of the waxing moon to help give your plans a boost. Read below for tarot guidance for your sign, rising sign, and/or moon sign for the week ahead.
FOR ARIES/ARIES RISING/ARIES MOON:
Page of Cups: Figure out what’s most important to your heart this week, and make that your priority whenever possible. If you go with what intuitively feels right rather than what seems the most logical or correct, you’ll have a better outcome. Look out for messages, possibly from a younger person, or news of a pregnancy or birth.
FOR TAURUS/TAURUS RISING/TAURUS MOON:
Ten of Pentacles: Inheritances, legacies, and long-term family plans and issues might be featured this week. You may feel called to do some ancestral work. Give thanks for what you already have and look for ways to celebrate how far you’ve already come.
FOR GEMINI/GEMINI RISING/GEMINI MOON:
King of Wands: You may be feeling fired up about something, and rightly so. You have the enthusiasm and vision needed to bring people around to your side if needed. Just be sure to continue with the same energy you started with, or your new project might fizzle out before it’s even gotten off the ground.
FOR CANCER/CANCER RISING/CANCER MOON:
The Tower: This may be a week of epiphanies. Something might come to light that feels shocking at first, but after sitting with it for a minute, you realize it was actually long overdue. You’re divinely guided to clear out the outmoded thing that’s taking up space and sucking up energy. (On a more mundane level, check electrical appliances and connections, and make sure you don’t overload any power strips or outlets.)
FOR LEO/LEO RISING/LEO MOON:
Judgment and The Sun: The Judgment card says, “Now is the time to stop and assess: what do you want to bring forward with you into this next phase of life, and what do you want to leave behind?” while the Sun card indicates a bright and successful next step. Do the spiritual housekeeping, then move forward; you’ve got the green light.
FOR VIRGO/VIRGO RISING/VIRGO MOON:
Six of Cups: Nostalgia and reminiscing could be keys to inspiration this week. Think back to your favorite books or hobbies as a child, or to times in the past when you felt the most creative—you can unearth something from a memory that could be valuable in guiding your next steps. Also, give yourself permission to loosen up this week, and make time to relax and have fun.
FOR LIBRA/LIBRA RISING/LIBRA MOON:
The High Priestess: Go within for guidance this week, and pay special attention to dreams and intuitive flashes that come up during meditation. If there’s a choice this week between taking action or being quiet and waiting, choose the latter—guidance will come, and things will be more clear if you wait.
FOR SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING/SCORPIO MOON:
The Chariot: You might have something, a task or destination, that needs your full focus, and you might be feeling impatient, but you’re battling with different ideas or opinions about it and having a hard time moving forward. (Same if you’re a team leader and trying to get everyone on the same page.) Use your will to get everything and everyone in line and heading in the same direction. You can do it.
FOR SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING/SAGITTARIUS MOON:
Strength: This card invites you to address things with compassion and calm this week, rather than fighting fire with fire. Someone might be working your last nerve, but even if they deserve to be put in their place, do so with grace. This might be more about soothing your own inner demons and not letting them control your actions.
FOR CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING/CAPRICORN MOON:
Two of Cups and Knight of Cups: Valentine’s Day might be turning into Valentine’s Month for you. Love, or a meeting of the heart, could be in the air. You might connect with someone new over a creative or spiritual endeavor. Look out for those rose-colored glasses though—try to see people for who they are, and not only for who you want them to be.
FOR AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING/AQUARIUS MOON:
Three of Pentacles: You might be receiving acknowledgement, or a much-anticipated “yes, go-ahead,” for something you’ve been working on. You’ve completed the first hurdles; there’s more work ahead but you’re on the right path for success. People admire what you’re doing and want to help—let them! You deserve both the praise and the support, and “teamwork makes the dream work” is a cliché for a reason.
FOR PISCES/PISCES RISING/PISCES MOON:
Eight of Wands: Travel is indicated, especially short and fun day trips and weekends away. Things might be moving fast in a creative endeavor, but you’re divinely guided, so trust it, go with the flow, and see where everything lands.
