Tarotscopes - Week of January 15th, 2024
I’m back with another week of Tarotscopes! This week’s deck is Tarot of the Divine by Yoshi Yoshitani. This deck is very thoughtful and interesting, as it incorporates folktales from all around the world.
Can you tell what story your card for this week is based upon?
As I always say, you’re more than just your sun sign. Not sure where other planets and signs fall within your chart? Visit the Natal Chart Calculator at Astro Cafe to find out!
Page of Cups: Last week, you were encouraged to be adventurous, say yes, and go forward without fear. This week also calls for openness, and fresh perspectives. When you feel blocked or overwhelmed, be open to another path forward. Find that path by tuning into your creativity, intuition, and emotions. Allow things to flow (even if that might mean getting uncomfortable), and you’ll find that obstacles are far easier to surmount. Do something that gets your imagination flowing; by dreaming the impossible you’re already opening yourself up to a great deal more.
Three of Cups Reversed: There may be some feeling of loneliness or isolation this week, especially when it seems like everyone around you is out doing something and you’re, well, not. Know that it’s okay to take some time to yourself. Don’t feel like you have to say yes to everything just to be involved, but also know that maintaining connections requires effort (from both parties). Find a healthy balance between being involved, going out, and enjoying social interaction and taking time to yourself. And just as a note, watch the petty drama and gossip. You don’t need to be there for that.
Six of Wands: Celebrate the wins, Gemini! This is a time to celebrate what you’ve accomplished, and how far you’ve come – regardless of whether that’s a small step forward, or big leaps and bounds. Be proud of the milestones you reached, and amp yourself up for what’s still to come. When you’re feeling down or stuck, make a list of some recent successes (again, small ones still count!). You may find that people are starting to notice you for the effort you put forth. Accept those compliments with a smile; no need to shoot them down or pretend they’re not real. Enjoy the praise!
Ten of Wands: There’s a lot you’re carrying, Cancer, and you’ve been successful in doing so. However, that isn’t to say that you’re tired of the burden and feeling like everything falls on your plate. It’s not that you’re not capable, but the question is – why? Don’t be afraid to drop some the load; if you continue to push, you’ll wear yourself out and what good is that? Don’t take on responsibilities that aren’t yours, and shift some of that weight to those around you. You’re nearing a position where things will be smoother sailing, but you have to do your part to make it so.
King of Coins: This is the week to get grounded, Leo! Keep that energy focused, and your eye on the prize. Be practical and realistic in your exploits. Approach problems with good sense and reason. Rely on your learned experience, and the stability that you’ve already created in your life. Know that this week might come down to a little extra hard work, but it’ll be worth it in the long run. Don’t be afraid to enjoy the fruits of your labour, but be sure to manage your time and money in an appropriate and sensible fashion.
The Magician: Alright, Virgo, this is your sign – this is the week to really step into your personal power and make things happen. Know that you have the skills, talents, and resources to begin creating the reality you desire. No more excuses. No more “waiting for the right time”. The time is now for intentional action; not just going through the motions so you can say that you “tried”. Even if it’s just a few small steps forward, meaningful progress is worthwhile progress. Be confident in yourself, and don’t give into that negative self talk – the Magician wouldn’t, so this week, neither will you.
Nine of Wands: Challenges are heading your way, Libra, but know that they’re similar (or even perhaps the same) as ones that you’ve faced before. And while this can be frustrating, remember that you’ve gotten through them once, and you will again. Don’t give into the fatigue. Rely on your resilience and perseverance, and know that you can overcome whatever is thrown your way. At the same time, don’t be afraid to set stronger boundaries. Protect your energy, say no to things that aren’t in alignment with what you actually want, and realize that you’re almost through to smoother waters.
Page of Wands: Alright, Scorpio, this is the week to get that engine revving! This is a great week for a new adventure or experience. Where will your ambitions take you? Be sure to set clear intentions, and focus that energy or you’ll find yourself caught in a web of great ideas, but no forward movement. The motivation is there, but we want to ensure that it stays through the week to carry you through. Opportunity is all around you, but you have to say yes for anything to happen. Take your ideas and run with them. Be brave, and don’t allow fear to influence your decisions.
The Sun: Lovely energy for you this week, Sagittarius, as you find success and enjoyment in what you’re doing. Invest time into the things that make you happy; the ones that make you laugh, and feel like you’re alive. Do what makes you feel confident. Get playful, and do your best to live in the moment. Share your radiance and warmth with others. This is also a great week to step into some self-care; replenish your vitality in whatever way that means for you so that you can continue burning bright.
Nine of Swords: There are a lot of thoughts spinning around in that head of yours, Capricorn, and this week, it may be harder than normal to reign them in. When you get sucked into the thought vortex, it can be difficult to find your way out. Know that the worries won’t just simply go away if you choose to ignore them. So instead, work on releasing them in some shape, way or form. If you like journalling, get them on paper. Spill those thoughts into a voice memo if you prefer to speak. Talk to someone, or scream it out in a parking lot. Deal with the difficult thoughts now so they don’t continue to haunt you.
Ten of Cups: Love, joy, happiness, and harmony – this has all the fixings for a wonderful week, Aquarius! There are two keys to success right now: your connections with others, and doing what makes you feel emotionally fulfilled. Make time to simply enjoy the company of family and friends; make memories, and bask in the love happiness you share. If there are rifts in relationships, approach fixing them with understanding and love. Do what makes your heart sing; and I’d encourage you to especially focus on creative pursuits that give you the freedom of emotional expression.
King of Wands: More fiery energy for you this week, Pisces! This is your time to step up, take action on your ideas, and take no prisoners. While we both know you have responsibilities to take care of, the King of Wands shows you are capable of doing it all. It’s up to you to make things happen; so stick to what you know is right for you. When you focus your energy, you can get through any issue or problem. Don’t be afraid to take a risk or two, and go into challenges knowing that it will all work out in the end.
