Did you do your challenge this week? Let me know in the comments!
Nine of Wands and Judgement: Get ready for some frustration this week as challenges that you thought were over and done with rear their ugly head. Even if you’re tired of the fight, know dear Aries, that you have the grit to get through – so dig those heels in, and push yourself up that hill. Don’t give into that self-doubt; be decisive and act!
As you go forward, give yourself a few moments to pause and reflect on where you’ve been. While looking backwards may not be your favourite pastime, we want to make sure that you’re not getting stuck simply because you’re repeating the same mistakes. This isn’t an excise is self-criticism; ke judgement out of your evaluation.
Your challenge this week: Self-reflection. Think about what patterns you are repeating and how can you break them.
Eight of Cups & the Fool: It’s hard to give up or walk away from something that isn’t working. Maybe it’s a thought or idea, a project, a job, or a relationship. But this week, it’s time to realize that it’s okay to leave behind that which you can’t fix. Let go; it’s time for a change.
And what way to bring about change than to jump right in? It may not be quite your style to throw caution to the wind, but this week, it’s time for a new adventure. See where things take you; get outside that comfort zone! There are bigger and better things out there for you, Taurus. So, go have some fun!
Your challenge this week: Try something new. It doesn’t have to be huge, but it does need to be different.
The Wheel of Fortune Reversed & The Sun: Expect the unexpected this week, and remember, there are things that are completely beyond your realm of control. Stop trying to force things to happen, and just go with the flow – adaptability is one of your assets, so use it!
I know you want things to move quickly, but delays will get in your way. Not everyone or everything is ready to move as fast as you are! Instead, have some fun. Laugh. Get outside and enjoy the world around you. Share your radiance with others, and you’ll find things start moving again in no time.
Your challenge this week: Make time for laughter and play. Why let life be so serious?
Two of Wands & Five of Swords: Choices are heading your way this week, Cancer! This is a great time to take the first initial steps towards a new goal or idea, but it may require going down a different route. Make a plan of action, and follow through – but expect a little pushback.
Remember, not everyone will understand the way you think or act. But don’t let what you want to do (and what you know you need to do) become convoluted by the opinions of others. You don’t owe anyone an explanation, and some arguments just aren’t meant to be won. Choose the path of peace. Make the choice to walk away from the added stress – you deserve better.
Your challenge this week: Walk away from a battle; internally or externally.
Ten of Swords Reversed & Eight of Pentacles: You know what, Leo? You can’t win them all – and that’s totally okay. You may find yourself at a loss this week when things don’t quite go the way you wanted. Accept defeat, and give yourself some space to lick your wounds. You have the chance now to heal, and to invest yourself into something worthwhile.
Whatever has happened, you will recover. Focus your attention on something tactile and productive. What skill do you want to hone? What can you learn? How can you level up to become a stronger, better, more powerful version of who you already are?
Your challenge this week: Practice or learn more about something you’ve been working on.
The Magician & Nine of Swords: Virgo, stop getting in your own way! You have the skills and resources you accomplish what you desire, but instead of taking intentional action towards your goals, you’re overthinking it.
Whether it’s imposter syndrome or that voice that keeps pointing out everything that’s wrong, know that you can fight it. Not everything has to be perfect; you’ll figure it out as you go, but please just go. It’s time to stop relinquishing control to that inner critic and take back your personal power.
Your challenge this week: Quiet that inner critic by finding three good things to what they say is bad.
The Star Reversed & Knight of Wands: We’re finding some heavy energy this week, Libra, where it may feel like the lights have been turned off around you. It’s hard to feel motivated, because it just might not feel worth it. But Libra, this isn’t the week to hide away.
Instead of focusing on the negative, look for the cracks of light. WHen you find them, chase them down. Be bold. Be courageous. Go for what you want, and allow yourself to be seen! Don’t give up hope just yet, if you search for a way out of the darkness you will find it.
Your challenge this week: Find at least one piece of good news (or a good news story) each day.
The Moon & Five of Cups Reversed: your imagination is running wild this week, Scorpio, but don’t let it create issues where issues don’t exist. What fears and anxieties are holding you back? It’s time to shine a brand new light on them, and you’ll see that they’re not as bad as you think.
Now is the time to find peace; to accept those disappointing feelings, instead of dwelling in regret. With acceptance comes moving forward – focus on the positives, and on what’s going right.
Your challenge this week: When you find your imagination going into overdrive, create a positive ending to the story.
Knight of Pentacles & Two of Swords: Take your time this week, Sagittarius. There’s no need to rush or to act in haste. Know that you’re on the right path, so keep treading along it – one step at a time. Don’t forget to take care of the mundane tasks that you’d probably prefer to gloss over.
When you find yourself at a crossroads (and you will this week) be patient in your decision making, but know that a choice will need to be made. While you may feel inclined to ask everyone for advice on which way to go, know that your best option will be the one that keeps you on the steady track towards your goals.
Your challenge this week: Do three things you’ve been putting off.
The Devil & Justice: You may find yourself feeling powerless – like the control you thought you had is slipping from your grasp. But you know what, dear Cap? It’s up to you to seize it back.
Remember that your actions have consequences (both good and bad), and you are accountable for your part in things. Be fair and honest to yourself. It’s time to break free from the self-inflicted chains you’re wearing.
Your challenge this week: When you feel powerless, take time to reflect on how you got to there, and how you can change course.
Ace of Wands & Queen of Wands: It’s go time, Aquarius! You have lots of energy this week to take ideas and run with them – but make sure you have a plan of action in place. The idea isn’t enough: this week is about execution.
Do what feels aligned. This is your time to follow your passions. Create. Experience. Enjoy. Show the world your charm and flair; you might be surprised how far it gets you.
Your challenge this week: Do something you’ve been wanting to do just for the sake of it.
The Tower & Six of Cups: Change last week, and change this week for you, sweet Pisces. Hold on, because it’s going to get uncomfortable. Accept the chaos; there are foundations that need to be rebuilt.
Know that there’s nothing wrong with doing what you need to seek comfort in times of uncertainty. Don’t run away, but find your sense of home. Those moments of calmness and familiarity will help you navigate the upcoming tides.
Your challenge this week: Reconnect with something (or someone) from your past (healthy things and people only!).
