Your Weekly Tarot Card Reading, by Zodiac Sign

You don’t need to know the difference between a three-card and a Celtic cross spread to get the most out of a tarot card reading. All you need: your Sun sign! Here’s what I do: Shuffle my tarot deck and pull out the cards in order from Aries to Pisces plus one general card for everyone so that you can get specific advice around your personality. Let’s go!

A GENERAL CARD FOR EVERYONE: THE HERMIT

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

Mars has just moved into Taurus, which makes us all into game-makers. You’re seeking plans and strategies that will turn your ambitions into purposeful action. The Hermit is the perfect vibe for this activity—this card represents research, processing, and ultimate enlightenment. Take your goals seriously this week. And if you haven’t got any, make a short-term one, at least for the week. Look at your options, list the risks and rewards, make a plan, and get to work. You’ll succeed, but maybe more importantly, you’ll learn a lot along the way.

ARIES: THREE OF SWORDS

It takes a brave person to face off against you, Aries, but someone did. They hurt your feelings and stabbed you in the back. It sucks. So, what are you going to do about it? Set boundaries? Maybe even freeze them out for good? You decide what you need to do, but decide consciously and objectively. What would you advise a loved one to do? Take your own advice.

TAURUS: ACE OF WANDS

Start something exciting, motivating, inspiring, and fun. Maybe you’re picking up an old hobby or interest from the past because now you have the time, resources, access, or talents to actually make the most of it. Re-activate a dream. This could be linked to travel, education, creativity, or lifestyle—or maybe all four! Whatever it is, it starts now, and it will become an important part of your free time in 2024. Make it worthwhile and make it your own.

GEMINI: QUEEN OF WANDS

You have brains, talent, charm, and personality. You’re the whole package, Gem—but sometimes you lack focus, so you get a bit scattered, overwhelmed, or lost. Set a goal this week and put your focus all on it. The Queen of Wands is asking you to step into your power, set a personal goal, and consider the ways you can serve others and the world. Time to step up.

CANCER: EIGHT OF WANDS

Put yourself in the middle of things this week, Cancer. Everyone has something important and interesting to share with you, and the opportunities will flow…as long as you’re present, engaged, and visible. Say “yes” to every invitation, and then make sure you show up. Set aside more time for socializing and networking. See it as an investment in your future options, because it’s always WHO vs. what you know that gets you ahead. Use your powers of persuasion to manifest new pathways.

LEO: ACE OF SWORDS

Get things off your chest this week, Leo, and speak the truth. Stop biting your tongue! Express your feelings and opinions openly, directly, and plainly. And then stop talking. It’s time to listen. The Ace of Swords reveals that this dialogue will bite both ways. Your words might land and cause a wound, and so might theirs… but you’re both big enough to see the bigger picture and value honesty. Look for ways you can agree, compromise, and work together to overcome the obstacles. Make it your goal to come to a new, better understanding of each other.

VIRGO: THE STAR

It’s time to (literally) wish upon a star, Virgo. The Star card grants you a wish, like in a fairy tale. This powerful card represents a window through which you can leap to a new reality and a new version of yourself. Make the jump! Pick a dream and take steps in its direction this week. This will activate the magic, and then new opportunities will open up for you. Sometimes good fortune needs a nudge, and that is how you do it. Take action, be proactive, and reap the rewards.

LIBRA: THE MAGICIAN

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

It’s finally starting to make sense to you—your niche, your purpose, and your unique path. The Magician represents the moment when we see ourselves clearly in terms of our strengths, skills, and talents. You can finally understand how the unique alchemy of your natural gifts plus your experience can create a new chemistry of options and ideas. You can see the things you could do, the roles you could play, and the things you can create. You feel inspired! Go find your niche.

SCORPIO: PAGE OF CUPS

Rekindle your friendship with your childhood self this week, Scorpio. Go back to a time when you felt truly happy. Recapture the friends, hobbies, places, books, music, movies, and toys you once loved. Look at old photos. Talk to your family. Yes, this all has a purpose: There is something you once loved doing that can now be reinvented in a new way. Go back and find it.

SAGITTARIUS: ACE OF CUPS

An amazing new relationship is beginning in your life this week, Sag. Look out for water signs (Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer) and for people with whom you feel an instant spark, attraction, or connection. This card represents a powerful meeting of minds and spirits. This person could become a lifelong friend, a true collaborator, or even the love of your life. Maybe it’s even a new pet or even a new baby. Welcome new people into your life with a warm embrace and have high hopes for the bond you’re going to build. This is a game-changer.

CAPRICORN: TWO OF WANDS

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

Cap, you have a lot of options, ideas, and opportunities swirling around you. Life is busy and abundant. The only risk you face is having TOO MUCH going on, all at the same time. Especially around your lifestyle, studies, or travels. Don’t try and bite off more than you can chew. Less is more this week, so trim back your schedule. Let go of the unimportant or outdated stuff, and delegate whatever you can. Focus on what matters most and you will reap the rewards.

AQUARIUS: THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

Life is unpredictable, right? Things happen out of the blue. You are clear-eyed and in control of your own world, but you are also part of a wider web than you can see or touch. We all play roles in stories we don’t write ourselves. Accept this truth and notice it playing out this week. See where you’re impacted by someone else’s story, and where yours impacts them. Don’t get mad or upset. Instead, see the beauty in it. Enjoy the unpredictability of the world around you.

PISCES: THE EMPRESS

Margie Rischiotto+Rider-Waite

The Empress is a perfect card for you, Pisces, because it’s all about love, family, home, intimacy, nature, beauty, and creativity. All your favorite things! Embrace all of that good stuff this week. Create your own kingdom and fill it with the type of things you most love. Why pretend to be something you’re not? Gravitate towards your passions and inspirations. Let your heart and intuition guide you. Only invest your time in things that make you feel good.
