What the tarot holds


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Card Of The Week: The Ace Of Pentacles

This period will be quiet and calm with very few events that will rock your world or upturn your ship. A steady flow of work, money, love and good health is predicted and while you may feel a tad bored with the lack of excitement, enjoy the plateau while it lasts. Sometimes a break from drama is just what the doctor ordered.

The Ace Of Pentacles

Depending on the deck used, The Ace Of Pentacles card depicts a single pentacle, coin or disk that sits in the centre of a cupped palm, surrounded by a garden brimming with green grass and white lilies and mountain peaks in the horizon. Often, this card represents new beginnings and opportunities.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Card Of The Week: Queen Of Swords

Someone born of an air sign such as Aquarius, Gemini or Libra will step into your life this week for reasons not yet known. This person will likely be a female entity – a mother, a friend, or even a spouse – who has offered a shoulder for you to lean on. Spend as much time as possible with her and take her advice to heart.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Card Of The Week: Six Of Wands

If feel you are in a dead end job, now is the time to send your CV out. If you are promotion-focused, look for jobs that offer advancement and growth. Consider fast-paced industries where products and services are rapidly changing. Finding the right job can call for an open mind so do not be too quick to turn down opportunities that seem temporary.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Card Of The Week: Three Of Swords

Your ego has taken a blow and you have been left heartbroken. Problems within your relationship have probably been brewing for a while but you have likely simply shrugged off incompatibilities, arguments, abusive behaviour, unfaithfulness and jealousy. Stop blaming a ‘third party’; evaluate the events that led up to this moment with clear eyes.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Card Of The Week: The Knight Of Cups

A move is on the cards this week – perhaps a new home, job, travel or other changes. Embrace the opportunity with both hands. If single, this card could also indicate a new love will enter your life through your circle of friends and family. Prepare yourself, then, for a relationship with someone who could possibly be the one.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Card Of The Week: The Tower

The last few weeks have been testing – emotionally, physically and mentally. It seems no matter which path you take, you are faced with a dead-end. Sometimes hardships are blessings in disguise. When The Tower shows up it lets you know that you must face the truth about a situation or an issue to be able to have positive changes in your life.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Card Of The Week: Three Of Pentacles

An important meeting is on the cards during this auspicious period, which could result in you securing a very large project. Ensure you are well prepared for the meeting and ready to answer any serious questions thrown your way. If all goes well, you will be reaping the benefits with a financial windfall.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Card Of The Week: Two Of Wands

If you have been battling illness, this week will see you have to make a very important decision concerning your treatment going forward. While friends and family will no doubt try to sway you in one direction, remember that only you can decide what is best for you and your body. Never apologise for making your own choices.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Card Of The Week: Justice

The Justice card represents balance, fairness, and the inescapable consequences of our actions. Concisely, what you sow you shall reap – whether good or bad. This week will see karma knock on several doors and the universe will implement ways to balance past actions.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Card Of The Week: The Queen Of Cups (reversed)

Are you tired of your partner’s overly sensitive, needy or clingy ways? Or perhaps they are the one who are tired of you? Relationships do best when both parties trust each other and allow one another room for personal growth. If you find yourself living in your spouse’s pocket (or vice versa) perhaps now is the time to evaluate if this relationship is really what you want.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Card Of The Week: The Page Of Wands

Just when you thought of throwing in the towel your life takes a dramatic turn. This period will see great luck come your way – either in love, home, work or health. This positive streak will have you smiling from ear to ear. Enjoy your newfound happiness and embrace the positive energy surrounding you. The world is your oyster.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Card Of The Week: The Sun

If you have been planning a trip this card suggests now is the perfect time. You are in desperate need of a break and a short get-away will do wonders for your general wellbeing! Whether you decide to do the trip solo, with your romantic partner, with your best friend, or with your family, you can be assured you will return refreshed and revived.
