Tarotscopes Symbol for Aries

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)


It seems this week that in trying to put your energy into one aspect of your life, you may forget about another aspect that needs your attention, too. Perhaps you throw yourself into work and forget to tend to your relationships. You may even forget about an engagement that you had previously planned and suddenly- oops! You have missed it! This could also manifest as spending too much time focusing on your personal life, and in the process forgetting about some of your responsibilities and obligations.

So do your best to keep a balance this week, dear Aries. If you find yourself fixated or enveloped in a single task or focus – pull yourself back and try to look at the bigger picture. Maybe this would be a good week to write out a schedule for yourself and stick to a plan. As a result of planning out your week in a thoughtful way ahead of time, you will find yourself accomplishing more and remembering everything you have to do. Seems like by planning ahead of time you will also be able to address the things that don’t need as much attention as you may end up giving them otherwise.

Your affirmation for this week: “In planning my time wisely, I give all aspects of my life the right amount of energy and attention.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Taurus

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)


Dear Taurus, this week you may have a new desire or focus enter your life or mind. Perhaps you’ve decided to pursue a new trade, craft, job or skill. This could even be a new diet or exercise plan that you are starting out this week! Whatever it may be, you are at the beginning of a journey in some aspect of your life.

Above all it’s important for you to remember that this is just the beginning…whether it’s the seed of inspiration being planted or the first pages or a book being turned. You are a student and a beginner in this pursuit, not matter your age or life experience. So treat yourself as you would a young student just starting out in the world. Be easy on yourself and don’t push yourself to know more than you possibly could at this time. Maybe think about setting aside certain times in your week where you allow yourself to study or grow in this new way – put some structure to this new pursuit to avoid pushing yourself too hard. In time you will grow from student to practitioner to master and even teacher – until then, enjoy this time and be patient with yourself.

Your affirmation for this week: “I must begin as a student before I become the master. I am patient with my growth and give myself the time and space I need to develop and grow in a new way.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Gemini

GEMINI (May 21 – Jun 10)


You have been quite in your feelings for some time, dear Gemini – and this week is no exception. It seems this week you may find yourself dwelling on a letdown or disappointment of some kind, and perhaps you’re finding it difficult to pull yourself out of the “sad zone”. It’s OK to feel sad or let down, Gemini – just don’t let any challenging experiences take over your whole week. Whatever it is – big or small – some things we just don’t have control over, and this feels like one of those situations. However, we do have control over how we let things affect us.

So allow yourself to grieve, feel into the disappointment, and then free yourself. Above all, don’t allow other people or situations control your reality. This is your experience, and you get to decide what that looks and feels like. Of course you will be affected by outside forces, but rather than letting them control you – remember that how you react and allow things to affect you is a choice. Free yourself…let yourself move forward.

Your affirmation for this week: “This life is mine, and when I face unexpected challenges it is my choice how I react.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Cancer

CANCER (Jun 21 – Jun 22)


Dear Cancer, this week you are encouraged to take a pause and give yourself a little break in some area of your life. It seems like you have been working so hard in some way – whether it’s within a relationship, your job or even your health – and you are feeling somewhat worn out or tired. When will all of this hard work pay off? It will in time, dear Cancer, but for now allow yourself to rest.

Seeds do not grow overnight- and they take so much energy and tending to. Right now what your seeds need is some space, time and patience. So take a little step back this week and put your energy elsewhere- allow yourself to be taken away and filled in other ways. Remember that you have other things in your life that can feed you and bring you joy! Perhaps when you return to your seeds, you will notice they have grown a bit on their own. As a result of taking a little time out, you may also come back with a fresh perspective and outlook on the future of your vision.

Your affirmation for this week: “In giving my vision space and time, I allow growth to occur naturally while giving myself the break I need.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Leo

LEO (Jul 23 – Aug 22)


Last week we had the Ace of Pentacles and today we have moved up into the 3 of Pentacles! I feel this is showing up in different ways for some of you. In some cases this will be a week of learning and engaging with others who can help you to build on your vision. So if you have started something new recently – a project, study or job of some kind – you are encouraged to reach out for help and assistance this week. What could others offer you that may help in moving your progress along more quickly and smoothly? Above all, think realistically and logically about how you can best move forward and what others might bring to the table.

Another way I feel this is manifesting is through the act of teaching. For some of you, your service and skills may be needed by others this week. So if you are approached or presented with an opportunity to share your knowledge with people less informed in some aspect of life, take the opening and share your gifts.

Your affirmation for this week: “In accepting knowledge from others and in sharing my own, I create a harmonious environment for progress and growth.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Virgo

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)


It seems as though you may be approaching the end of a somewhat difficult journey or cycle in your life this week. You are embodying or encouraged to embody the warrior archetype as you push your way to the finish line. Perhaps this is in relation to a challenging relationship, job, environment or otherwise. Whatever it is, your message is one of hope this week. Success and payoff is right around the corner, so though it may feel challenging and even exhausting right now – keep pushing, keep moving. You are strong.

While you take the last steps towards your final destination, remember that you get to move on from this once it is over. Challenges are in place to lead us to growth- and sometimes this growth leaves behind spiritual or emotional scars of a kind. However, we are not our scars – these scars act as a reminder but the pain or discomfort from the original “wounds” should eventually fade, leaving nothing more than the reminder and lesson. So allow yourself the proper time and energy to heal and recover after you’ve moved past this challenge. And when you are ready, carry the lessons you learned in battle – but not the wound itself.

Your affirmation for this week: “My goal is in sight, and I have the strength to accomplish it. As I complete this journey, I give myself enough time to heal and recover before moving on to the next goal.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Libra

LIBRA (Sep 23 – Oct 22)


This week is an opportunity for you loosen up a little in some aspect of your life, dear Libra. Perhaps lately you have felt either tense or overly protective over your possessions, your relationship(s) or maybe your finances. Seems like there is an attachment to something in your life that is keeping you from fully enjoying it. For example, if you sit on all of your income – you never get to celebrate and enjoy all of the hard work you put in to acquire that income. Or maybe you have stopped truly enjoying a partnership or friendship- becoming overly possessive or scarce- because you have become so afraid of losing it.

Whatever it may be – big or small – your message is to live your life without the fear of losing what you have built for yourself. Of course treasuring and saving things is important and a necessary part of having a successful and stable life. However, there is a difference between saving and suffocating! Let yourself enjoy whatever it is that you are holding on to so tightly. There is a balance you can find between saving and spending that you will be quite at peace with. Once you let loose a little, you will find everything in your life easing up a bit – especially you!

Your affirmation for this week: “In letting go of total control over things in my life, I allow myself and everything around me more space to breath, grow and be enjoyed. I recognize the importance of living from a place of joy instead of a place of fear.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Scorpio

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)


Dear Scorpio, this week may mark the end of a somewhat challenging journey or cycle for you. Perhaps this is even related to the end of a thought pattern or fear you have been holding on to. Or maybe this is related to the end of a relationship, environment or stressful situation you’ve been involved with. Endings can feel so difficult and even defeating…but your message this week is one of relief.

Seems like perhaps you have been avoiding closure or a certain ending as a means of protecting yourself in this situation. Maybe it has felt easier to hold on to this old belief, relationship or situation because it feels familiar or safe to you. But this week the truth is catching up to you, and this situation seems like it’s no longer possible to avoid or let go. So let go, dear Scorpio. Allow this door to close so that you may eventually pick yourself up and open the next door. Rather than linger in this place of resistance- accept that you are changing, growing and ready to confront your truth and move on. It may feel difficult now, but at some point you will be on your new path and so grateful for this challenging transition.

Your affirmation for this week: “I accept change. I let go of the things that are no longer serving me – even though it feels difficult to move forward. In letting go, I am moving closer to my truth.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)


Dear Sagittarius, this week you are encouraged to approach all situations and challenges from a place of thoughtful planning, maturity and logic. The King of Swords is a leader – a master of thought and carefully turning that thought into words. He calls on you to think before you act, and choose your battles wisely. So if you are feeling cornered or challenged at all this week, do your best to call on your intellect and find the most mature and strategic way to resolve your situations.

Look at every possible option and pathway towards resolution and choose carefully which path you will walk. Which will honestly lead to resolution and which may lead to more chaos or conflict? You have the power within you to approach all and any challenges this week with a level head and the strength of a King. Also remember that sometimes the best thing you can do is walk away and revisit your challenges when you feel more clear and grounded.

Your affirmation for this week: “I resolve challenges from a place of logic and maturity. I have the strength and clarity to navigate and resolve any situation I may be faced with.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Capricorn

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)


This week you are encouraged to be aware and take advantage of any potential opportunities that may present themselves to you! Seems like there is an energy of luck and blessings in your field this week, and anything you create has the potential to be successful. So, if you have been sitting on some inspiration or if you are being handed an opportunity of some kind this week – move it forward. Since you are a Capricorn, I would be surprised if you didn’t have some ideas brewing in your subconscious or conscious mind already!

Above all, stay open to things that may come your way unexpectedly – and believe that abundance is yours already. Step into everything you do with the mentality that you will succeed. Reality follows thought, so keep your thoughts prosperous and positive this week!

Your affirmation for this week: “I think and create from a place of abundance.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Aquarius

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)


Hiding things or keeping things to yourself will not serve you this week or in the long run, dear Aquarius. This week you may find yourself in a situation or predicament that has you protecting yourself and your thoughts or feelings in some way. Perhaps you are simply stressed out and you don’t want to appear vulnerable with your discomfort to others. Maybe you have come across a secret that you feel you need to hold onto even though it’s burdensome and weighing you down. I feel some of you may even be hiding something in a way that feels unnecessary or hurtful for everyone involved – including you.

So your message is one of honesty this week, even at the risk of exposing yourself, your feelings or true intentions. You may feel it’s easier to hide in some way this week – but your protective measures will only prove to be temporary and faulty. Above all, know that in letting the truth reveal itself you will feel lighter and freer. “The truth will set you free” as they say…so let yours free and feel yourself move and think more easily without the weight of secrecy.

Your affirmation for this week: “In truth I will find freedom.”

Tarotscopes Symbol for Pisces

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)



This week you may find yourself stuck in a situation or mindset that is causing you to feel trapped or stressed out in some way. It seems like maybe you’ve hit a roadblock of some kind and your mind is spinning your challenge somewhat out of control. Know this: It feels much worse or like a bigger deal than it really is!

You are reminded this week that your mind can sometimes be the biggest trap of all. Perhaps this week it would be helpful to even physically remove yourself from your situation and spend some time in a new environment so that you can gain some perspective on your challenges. Maybe you can also call on somebody for help or guidance – somebody with an outside opinion that can help you see things in a new way. Sometimes it can feel hard to resolve issues when we try to do it all on our own. So the best thing you can do this week is try to step outside of your own head and look in on yourself from the outside. As a result of taking a step back from your own situation, you may realize the reality is not as stressful or difficult as you originally imagined.

Your affirmation for this week: “I recognize when my mind is inflaming a situation. I take a step back and look outside of myself for a renewed perspective and resolution.”
