Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Card Of The Week: The Ace of Pentacles
This week sees you branch out and try all sorts of things you wouldn’t usually. If single, internet dating could easily bring a thrilling new romance but keep in mind commitment might not be what your new found interest wants. It’s great that you’re willing to test the waters so long as you keep your expectations in check.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Card Of The Week: The Five of Swords
You’ve been indulging a little too much over the past few days, likely in an attempt to help you cope with the pressures of life – be it by overeating, drinking or another bad habit you know isn’t good for your health. It would do you a world of good this week if you got back into your active way of life again. Even if it just means taking an afternoon stroll or scraping junk food off your grocery list.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Card Of The Week: Ten of Cups

Try find a kid friendly place with age-suitable activities so you and your partner can also relax.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Card Of The Week: The Knight of Cups
Work is manic this week and authority figures have been getting on your nerves and forcing you to prove yourself and what you are doing. Try stick to the basics and not to react to provocation, or you could find yourself in the firing line. On the plus side, this busy time is good for asking for favours, sending applications, study, exams, buying and selling.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Card Of The Week: The Empress
If you have been trying for a baby, this card indicates the tip tap of little feet may be on the horizon sooner than you thought. The Empress card is a strong pregnancy indicator so if you are not ready for parenthood, take proper precautions! If having a family, or extending on one, is not on your agenda, this card could be an reminder for you to pamper yourself and allow your creativity to flow.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Card Of The Week: The Eight of Swords
This week sees you financially strapped due to impulse buying, especially online. Stop spending on items you don’t need and will likely never use. If you don’t know where to start when it comes to your money woes, perhaps it’s best you go and see the bank and chat to them about your options, or enlist the help of a financial advisor.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Card Of The Week: The Page of Wands
Your partner has been going through a rough time and you’ve had to take on a large portion of their load. The good news is that with support and love they will be able to overcome this difficult period. Be patient and remember that to truly love someone, you have to accept their bad days just as much as their good ones.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Card Of The Week: Temperance
You’re bored of your relationship and looking at ways to spice things up. Experimentation in the bedroom could reinvigorate an old romance. Obviously a relationship needs much more than just sex to keep things interesting, but it certainly does help to bring a little fire back into the mix.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Card Of The Week: The Moon
You hate your job. You hate your life. It seems you hate everything lately! When the Moon card comes up it doesn’t necessarily mean all doom and gloom. But it does mean it is time to transform how you live your life. Do something. And do it now. Or you’ll be stuck in a rut and hating everything again next week!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Card Of The Week: Queen of Cups
Someone who holds your heart is completely smitten with you in return and will be giving you a gift you have been hoping for. Before you immediately imagine a small, beautiful box with something sparkly in it, remember gifts don’t necessarily have be something you can touch. This gift is so much more than that.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Card Of The Week: The Knight of Pentacles
Someone has been sucking your energy and leaving you dry. It’s time you finally put your foot down and draw the line. Lazy slugs have no room in your life this week. If someone close to you is not pulling their weight and expecting you to do all the work, speak up, or they’ll keep treating you like a doormat.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Card Of The Week: The Ten of Swords
In a health Tarot reading, the Ten of Swords is not a great omen as it indicates that you have hit a wall and you need to stop and deal with your well-being. Chronic fatigue, exhaustion, collapse and even nervous breakdowns are all represented by this card. You need to put your health first. If you have a primary care provider, talk to him or her about your signs and symptoms or seek help from a mental health professional.
