Five of Cups: New year, new you, right Aries? While that may be your outward party line, there is a tendency this week to look back with disappointment and regret. “If only I had…”, “I should have…”, “Why didn’t I…”. You can’t go backwards. Instead, combat those not-so-productive thoughts and emotions by focusing on what you can control. What is going right (even if it seems small). And all the things you’re going to do this year to take 2024 by storm.
Ace of Cups: Your cup runneth over! This week, make time for new connections or rekindling old friendships (not that toxic ex, though). Open your mind, get into the flow, and allow yourself to experience your feelings in the moment. What would you like to start that would help you feel happiness, love, creativity or fulfillment? Get moving on it, and don’t let excuses get in the way. Enjoy yourself fully and wholeheartedly without getting caught up in the details.
Knight of Wands: Time to get those juices flowing, and unapologetically chase after your ambitions – but making a little time for fun and adventure along the way. The energy and motivation is there for the taking this week, so don’t let anything hold you back. However, be sure you have a plan of action in place (time to commit!). For all your courageousness and charm, that motivation will fizzle out if you don’t channel your efforts appropriately.
Queen of Cups Rx: We’re starting off this year with an emotional roller coaster, so be sure to make time to take care of you. You have a lot to give, and you’re happy to do it, but make sure that your energy is going to the right places (and people). You have nothing to prove to anyone else. Don’t be afraid to enforce boundaries, and set side time for self-compassion and care. Trust your intuition – if something feels off (or even too much), it is.
Four of Wands: The party is still continuing, Leo, so make space to enjoy yourself and the company of the people important to you. Celebrate, laugh, and have fun, because you’ve already built the foundation to be able to do so. Spend time with the people and at the places that make you feel like you belong. There’s plenty of work of to come, but right now, the best way forward is to ease yourself back into it.
Justice Rx: There’s some unfairness coming up this week, Virgo, where it’s hard to understand why things have gone the way they have. It’s not worth dwelling on, because it’ll just drive you mad. The best way to tip the scales is by being honest with yourself. Take accountability for your actions (and only your actions), knowing that you’re not responsible for what others do. Make choices based on what you know is right.
Knight of Coins Rx: There’s some lingering inertia which makes it hard to really get amped up for that growing list of to-dos. You may feel a bit like you’re just going through the motions, and sometimes, that’s okay. Take time to ground yourself in the here and now. Plan your next move, and figure out where you want to focus your energy in the coming weeks. Balance is key right now; cross a few easy things off your list so you feel like you’re making progress.
Six of Wands: Take some time to really see how far you’ve come, Scorpio. Celebrate the wins, no matter how big or small, so that you feel proud and motivated to continue on – because we both know your work isn’t done quite yet! Allow yourself to be seen for all that you do; accept that compliment, and if people around you aren’t seeing it, give yourself a pat on the back. You know you’re worth and what you’re capable of, don’t let anyone diminish that.
Eight of Coins: What a great way to ease into the new year, Sag! It’s all about putting your energy and focus into something that’s worth levelling up. It’s time to invest in yourself – read that book, join that workshop, enroll in that course, or explore all your options. Where are you going to take yourself next, and how are you going to get there? Mastery won’t come overnight, but it will be well-worth the effort. Don’t sell yourself short!
The Star: Just breathe. There’s been a lot going on over the last few weeks, and you need a moment to just be. Make time and space for the dust to settle, and look towards what gives you hope and inspiration. This is the perfect time for a refresh as you step into a new power, and a new light. Let yourself be seen for exactly who you are. Trust fully in yourself (and yes, as cheesy as it sounds, in the universe), and you won’t go astray.
King of Swords: You’re leaving no time for dilly-dallying as you jump into 2024! Your mind is clear, your thoughts are in control, and you have all the tools needed to make the best decisions possible. Be sure to think things through. You have a lot to say, but it’s important to use your words wisely and take time to listen. Rely on logic over intuition; be decisive, and take intelligent, appropriate action. Now is not the time to leave things to chance.
Queen of Wands: With the holidays winding down, you have the opportunity to do the things that you truly enjoy; those things you’ve been putting off because someone has asked to do this or go here. Step into your personal power; choose your own dreams, desires, ambitions – and go for it. It’s a great time to be social, but only if that’s what you really want to do. Allow your creativity to flow, and enjoy seeing where your passions take you.
