Tarotscopes - Week of January 8th, 2024

How was the first week of 2024 for you? Did you know that 2024 marks the year of the Strength card in tarot? If you’re interested in learning more, I’ve written up a post to dive into the Strength card and what it means.

For Christmas, I was gifted a deck that had been on my wishlist for a very long time, and I’m excited to use it for the messages this week! Featured below is the Neon Moon Tarot by Pixel Occult.

Don’t forget that you are more than just your sun sign. Take a gander at the messages for your moon and rising, too! Want to know what the other placements in your birth chart are? Visit the Natal Chart Calculator at Astro Cafe to find out!


The Fool: This could be an exciting week for you, Aries, if you let it be! What new adventure are you ready to undertake? The Fool encourages you to step outside your comfort zone, take a bit of a risk, and try something new. Go forth with hope and optimism. Instead of focusing on what could go wrong, turn your attention to what could go right. This is a great time to work on being in the present moment; if there’s one thing the Fool does know, it’s that you’ll learn a whole lot more focusing on the here and now.


The Chariot: This is the week to let nothing stand in your way – set your focus, and get to it! Take a moment to figure out where it is you want to go, or what it is you wish to accomplish, but don’t spend all your time deliberating. Draw upon that determination and willpower that is innate within you. Don’t get caught up in the what ifs, instead step into your confidence and know you have what it takes to reach success and victory. Overcome obstacles by finding a path around or running right through them. You’ve got this, Taurus! Don’t let anything (or anyone) convince you otherwise.


Judgement: The inclination is to power forward, it’s a new year afterall, and there’s lots to do! But this week, dear Gemini, it’s important to pause and reflect. Where have you been the past year? What have you learned? What patterns are you ready to break? Judgement wants us to follow the path to our highest good, but that’s difficult to see if you don’t’ take a moment for reflection and self-evaluation. Remember, this it not a call to berate or self-criticize. It’s a way to see exactly where you stand, so you can make the best choices for your next steps.


The Hanged Man: Stop for a second, Cancer. It might feel like you have a lot to do, racing thoughts, decisions to make – and I’m not saying you don’t, but rushing through them won’t make anything better (or easier, for that matter). Take a moment to pause, to contemplate your next move, or perhaps to wait and see where the cards fall. There is no rush this week, so don’t push yourself to decisions that aren’t necessary. A shift in perspective will do you a world of good, especially in the moments you feel stuck or stagnated. Inaction is not unproductive; sometimes the best course of action is to take a moment to think.


The Magician: Tune into that personal power, Leo, because this is your week focus on making those dreams a reality. It might sound like a monumental task, but remember that you have the skills, talents, and resources necessary to make what you want to happen, happen. What would your ideal life be? Step into that energy by living the parts of it you currently can. Would your ideal self wake up at 7am? Perfect. Wake up at 7am. Little actions will get you into alignment to manifest your desires. Be confident, realize your potential, and let that magic flow through you.


Three of Wires (Wands): This is a week where things go smoothly, Virgo, as you step into further expansion and growth of your goals and desires. Be confident as you take forward steps. Keep your energy focused, and the motivation burning. Remember that discomfort is a normal part of expansion. You already have a strong foundation, so don’t be afraid to welcome change and adjustment. New opportunities won’t fall into your lap, but you can most definitely create them – after all, good fortune favours the bold.


Ten of Wires (Wands): There’s a lot on your plate this week, and the tendency to pile on more. We all know you’re capable, afterall, you’ve climbed that mountain more than once already, but at the same time, don’t bite off more than you can chew. You don’t have anything to prove or make up for, so instead of exhausting yourself, establish boundaries where needed. Shed some of your burden by delegating or dropping entirely if possible, and don’t take on what isn’t yours. It’s not your job to take care of everything; balance, dear Libra, is key.


The Star: What lovely energy for you this week, Scorpio! If things have been difficult lately, know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Even if they’ve been going smoothly, this is a time to return to hope. Find both healing and inspiration by connecting with the world around you. What is currently shining in your life? What gives you hope? What brings you peace? Allow yourself to be seen for who you are, and let your soul shine. Trust yourself to find your way; you are safe and protected. 


Two of Arms (Swords): You may find yourself at a crossroads this week, Sagittarius, or it could just be that good old indecision rearing its ugly head. Whatever the case, know that it’s important for you to make a choice. Don’t sit on the fence, don’t ruminate until you’ve turned yourself in circles – all this is doing is delaying the inevitable and slowing your progress. Take time to think it through. Weigh the pros and cons. See the situation for what it really is. And make a choice. Remember, the best decisions are made when our heart and mind are in balance. 


The High Priestess: Your inner voice is screaming to be heard this week, Capricorn, and although it may be at odds with that meticulous logic of yours, it’s important for you to listen. If your dreams are extra vivid, pay attention. Those repeating numbers, animals or signs you’re seeing? It’s a message that needs to be heard. Give yourself space to quiet out the noise to hear what your subconscious mind has to say. Regardless of whether you prefer the logical or the mystical realm, it’s time to seek answers and connect with your inner wisdom. 


Temperance: Focus on tipping the scales back into balance this week, Aquarius. What areas of your life feel out of whack? Where are you spending the majority of your time and energy? And more importantly, where do you want to be spending it? Make time to find peace and serenity within the chaos of everyday life. Seek moments of calm, be it in the early morning or wee hours of the night, during a walk outside or through meditation. You can have too much of a good thing, so act with balance in mind, and everything in moderation. 


Six of Wires (Wands): There’s success and victory to be had for you this week, Pisces, so harness those talents, and allow yourself to be seen for a job well done. Accept compliments and praise, instead of shrugging them off – you’ve earned them, so bask in them! Take a moment to celebrate your wins, big and small, to keep yourself motivated as you continue forward. If there aren’t people in your life who are willing to give you a pat on the back, do it yourself – because you deserve it. You’ve worked hard, enjoy the breathing space, but know there’s still work to be done.
