Week of 24 January 2022

Aries

You leap off the page, Aries. You’re like a character in a novel or a film. The sun is shining, and there you are amid its golden glow. But that’s not quite how you’re feeling at the moment. Something has occurred to dim your light. It’s left you feeling exhausted and drained of emotional reserves. Something has ended or is about to end. There’s a change in the air, and it’s got you worried about how others will view your achievements.

Perhaps some subterfuge in the recent past is to blame. Maybe someone tried dancing rings around you, and you’ve worn yourself out trying to keep up. Or perhaps it was you whose guile and strategic balancing act put you on a treadmill that has worn you out. 

You’ve been working hard, that’s for sure. 

I sometimes think when we’re new to something, or there’s pressure to get something done ahead of a more reasonable schedule, it can feel like that kind of crazy headless-chook-dash around the yard. I suspect that you have felt like someone who’s been constantly dashing here and there. But the reality is, you’ve been steady and driven. And yet your aims and methods have somehow been pushed to their limits, and that’s left you wondering whether you’ve made a good show of it.

To use another analogy, you probably feel like you’ve been putting out spot fires and haven’t had the time to attend to the work you feel you ought to attend to. You feel like you’re getting stuff done, but will it measure up?

Underneath it all, you know that’s it’s about managing your resources—your energy (and your enthusiasm). You can’t do it all. And you need to take time out for yourself, or you’ll be no use to anyone, dear Aries. I know you’re worried about what others will think of you if you can’t pull this off—whatever it is that’s demanding so much of your emotional energy. But by focusing on how others might see you, you will lose sight of your goals and end up in a tangle of worry and sleepless nights. In the end, it will lead you astray. You may find yourself ruing the path you took if it’s not the route that you would have taken. If you were to stop for a moment and give your mind and heart time to relax and speak to you from that deep well of authority, perception, and intelligence that lies within you, Aries, what advice would you give yourself?

So let’s step back for a moment. I’m not gonna lie or spin you a fairy tale ending here. Because, at the end of this week, you will feel exhausted. But you’ll also feel delighted with the result if you take the time to check in with yourself and listen to the wise counsel of your higher self. That counsel will tell you this much, at least: you are magnificent, Aries. You don’t need to derive your value from the views of others. Of course, you need to follow the directions of relevant supervisors and clients, etc. But you don’t need to pander to them. You just need to deliver. And you certainly don’t need to pander to the expectations of anyone who’s not in a position to actually judge your work in the end.

It’s easy to forget this. It’s easy to forget who you’re doing it all for when others chime in with their opinions. They may well say that you are headed along a path to destruction. But listen to yourself. If you have thought this through and given yourself time to think and reflect—time to identify what it is that you’re really after, what matters most—then you will realize that you are the person who must ultimately be satisfied with your actions. And when you become your own boss, by stepping up and being true to your goals and values, you will always find reasons to be joyous and proud of the effort you put in—even if it leaves you feeling exhausted.

The end of next week will see you complete a significant project or cycle. People may well suggest that you’ve gone off-piste. Maybe you have. But, as long as you checked the route and made preparations for such an exhilarating ride, you will come through with the satisfaction of meeting your own exacting requirements, and a wish may very well come true. The delights that this brings will more than compensate for the fatigue you feel at the end of it all. Yet the exhaustion that comes with hard work that pays off is proof of your shining efforts.

Like all fictional narratives, the stories that emerge through tarot are not predictive. Instead, these stories offer new ways of seeing situations, alternative perspectives, and opportunities to remind oneself of the ups and downs we all must face in life.

Taurus

You’ve been very productive, Taurus. Or perhaps, this isn’t about your work-life alone. Maybe you’ve met (or have already in your life) someone who fills your emotional cup. The thing is, your emotional life (as it relates to the feelings you have for the ones you love or hope to love) is vital to what you are building right now, Taurus. 

You want to lay firm foundations, and you have the skills and mastery to pull it off. It’ll take a dash of daring, self-confidence, and maybe a dash of inspiration. But it will lead to the solid firm ground you are seeking if you trust in yourself and what you know to be your merits, skills, and abilities. You’re onto this already, of course. Taurus, I suspect you have been working towards this for quite a while. Yet I see that you’re feeling edgy and ready to get going on all fronts. There’s a buzz in the air. People are talking. Someone is a little miffed, maybe? Perhaps they feel like they’ve been left standing outside while you get down to work on what you are building. Or maybe they envy your abilities and all the good things you have going for you right now. I know, sometimes, when there is a reckoning—when fairness comes into play at last, and all the cronies who have benefited from unearned privileges realize that those privileges are crumbling and a new order of equality has arrived—I know, sometimes there’s bitterness from those who feel they’re losing out. But all they have lost is their unearned privilege. You know this well enough, Taurus. You don’t need me to tell you that the world is getting fairer, and you are seizing the day.

An underlying sense of hope guides your quest to lay down something meaningful in your vocational life—because this is somehow connected to your family life or dreams of establishing a fulfilling life with someone special. Your energy and your resilience are in step in this week. Though you may feel a little shaky, you know that the only way to go now is towards your goals. You know that fairness and equality play some part in all of this. If you are a woman or of a minority group, or any group that has suffered injustice in the past, the stakes are high in this sense. Will things play out fairly? Will your efforts be recognized and valued for what they are? Because you are doing something that is possibly setting tongues wagging. Your ambition is to make this thing work. You’ve got love in your heart for the ones dear to you and enthusiasm and commitment towards your dreams and ambitions. You have a kind and open heart, Taurus, and want to see the good you can do pay off for those around you.

And I think you will find yourself reaching that point where all the pieces of life come together in a happy union, Taurus. This week will find you feeling content in your world if you put your deepest and purest values in the frame—if you know yourself fully and understand how capable you really are. 

Nurture that glimmer of hope that you feel in your belly, and turn those butterflies into a beautiful reality.

Gemini

You’re exhausted right now and feeling like you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, Gemini. I know the feeling, believe me. On top of all that, did you put your foot in your mouth recently? Or maybe it was someone else. Either way, it’s not important. You’ve come through a long hard struggle, and, yes, you still have a way to go. But beneath the anxiety and the fatigue is a deepening awareness of your worth and the valuable contribution you can make to whatever you set your mind to. 

Others may be looking on and thinking this is the end of the road for you. You’re hoping to pull it all together and come out shining like burnished gold, with the glow of success about you. At this stage, what’s clear is that there is more work up ahead. This time, it won’t be emotionally exhausting—just the satisfying feeling of having exerted yourself and of a job well done. But, you need to be diligent this week, Gemini. Get clear about your goals. Identify your leads and work towards the future you want to create for yourself. There are no promises at the end of the week, but a change in fortune is possible. You get to decide which way the wheel turns—whether you measure success or failure. And the decider comes down to how conscientious you are. 

The opportunities that lie up ahead are tantalizing, Gemini. But they demand effort. Not a back-breaking effort. More like careful planning and attention to the less glamorous aspects of work—turning up and keeping an eye on what needs your attention. If you do so, you will find when you throw your hat in the ring and turn up for whatever challenge faces you that you are competitive and that there are people on your side, willing to fight your corner.

In such an atmosphere, a cherished wish may come true. But, it will involve making a choice between two or more options. So, be prepared and, like I said, do the work. Understand what you’re up against, know what you want, research your options and make that decision with a clear head, knowing that you’ve been diligent, realistic, and focused on what you want to achieve. This is about you, your leadership qualities, the strength of your vision, and your tenacity, dear Gemini.

Cancer

You’re full of ideas this week, Cancer. But the world of imagination can be tricky territory to navigate, so arm yourself with a bit of tenderness and kindness towards yourself. I know you’ve been taking care of yourself recently, giving yourself room to think and be, and that’s great. I’m just mindful of the road ahead and how you need to keep your wellbeing (on all fronts) carefully in mind. 

Right now, you feel like you’re moving into unknown territory—things may look stable and calm up ahead, but you know that’s never the complete story. It’s not a matter of how things appear but the deeper reality beneath the surface. 

Still, that surface reality is wearing you down a little, Cancer. Your mind has settled upon some injustice. And minds like yours are made for wielding words of wisdom that unsettle wrongs and move others to do better. You may not be aware of this, but the feeling of being burdened and overwhelmed will this week be transformed into enthusiasm by the keenness of your mind. Your intellect isn’t the snappish or vainglorious kind, Cancer. You’re not meddlesome or patronizing by any stretch. Yet someone’s troubles will catch your eye and, in an instant, you’ll have a solution—not necessarily for the individual specifically. This is more in the nature of an idea or process that leads to greater stability, which lightens the burden others carry. 

It’s sagacious energy—cool, clever, and strategic rather than dramatic and fast. And it’s triggered by the burden you see troubling others. Your ideas are motivated by a deep sense of the need for balance in the world. And all because of some wrongdoing that comes across your radar this week, Cancer, as you move through your own troubles and into better days. 

Perhaps the wrongdoing was specific to you and your situation. You are coming out of a challenging phase and moving into better times, after all. I imagine that you’re thinking of putting your experience to work helping others by sharing your story or by developing your ideas in ways that shake up the status quo and get people thinking a little differently. As long as you think carefully and are mindful of the way your actions affect those around you, your cool head in a crisis might be just what’s needed to help others achieve the serenity that you have mastered, Cancer.

Leo

Right now, Leo, your keen mind is in overdrive, and your brain is spinning its wheels—or maybe just that one hamster wheel (you know the one I mean). You have an urge to do something. You’re full of ideas, and you’re wondering if those ideas are ready to share with the world. 

In the past, you experienced a situation that seems to be clouding your judgment right now. It’s making you feel a little nervous about bringing your work to light. Perhaps somebody stole your ideas or failed to give proper acknowledgment. Perhaps it’s just that you were so worried about the possibility of theft that you chose to keep everything close to your chest. But now you’re thinking, Maybe it’s time I brought this forward.

Deep down, you know, Leo—you’ve been sitting with this idea for a while now. You’ve thought it through, and you’re kind of excited because you know you can make a valuable contribution to humankind—in a big or small way.

Trust yourself, Leo. If you have taken steps to critically evaluate your plan or ideas, then isn’t it time you moved forward with it? If you have an idea and it’s a sound one, then you owe it to yourself to take the lead with it.

Others see you as a courageous and capable leader. You appear this way to the world—or to those who matter in this situation—even though you’re stressing on the inside. You’re hoping to make some serious financial gains with this. You want to bring about meaningful, material change that will benefit you and those around you. And that’s just what you are capable of, Leo. Your efforts in bringing your ideas, or the ideas that you support in your leadership role, could very well usher in a period of success that cements your financial wellbeing, independence, and social standing.

Virgo

You’ve been through a hell of a battle, Virgo. There’s been some kind of struggle as you’ve fought to find your place in the world—probably in a business or vocational sense. Whether you’re a student, business owner, freelancer, team leader, or just putting your CV out and about, it’s been a hard road—one that’s left you little time to settle on your haunches or stop and reflect. It’s hard keeping your chin up when you have to work as hard as you’ve been working, Virgo, and yet, that’s just what you’re doing.

Right now, you’re justly satisfied with what you’ve achieved. And objectively, your success is clearly apparent to others. You have the look and manner of someone who is thriving—you’re someone who makes hard work look easy. And yet you know how much you’ve sacrificed—the hours, opportunities, and time you’ve given to achieve your success has all been with your goals firmly in mind. No wonder you’re feeling so self-satisfied and serene. 

As you come through the tougher phases of your endeavor and out into the calmer waters of these final stages, you really are hoping that things will go smoothly for you from here on out. Yet, there’s a whiff of misgiving up ahead, by the look of things. It could be you, or it could be that someone else has something snarky to say about your achievements. Maybe they’re just trying to ruffle your feathers. Because their views are out of step with everyone else’s, that’s for sure. To others, you exemplify the benefits of being organized and conscientious. Go, Virgo! I wish I had your stamina. 

So don’t let any grumbling or misgivings dim your light or curb your enthusiasm as you reach the completion of your cherished goal (or an essential stage towards a goal) this week. There may well be some expression of disappointment—either coming from you or someone else. But remember: you began with a vision of what you wanted to achieve. A vision is useless without the organization, action, and determination needed to bring it to fruition. 

You put in the effort and made the sacrifices you needed to achieve your goal—and achieve it, you will. This week, the successful completion of your aims will emerge to quash any naysayers or any doubt you may have along the way, Virgo. If there are whispers of dissent among your team, they will be quelled when the week draws to its close, and you deliver your creation to the world.

Like all fictional narratives, the stories that emerge through tarot are not predictive. Instead, these stories offer new ways of seeing situations, alternative perspectives, and opportunities to remind oneself of the ups and downs we all must face in life.

Libra

You have a decision to make this week, Libra. But you’re feeling stuck. Someone has offered you the world on a plate because they have high hopes that you can deliver something equally valuable to them. Perhaps it’s a job offer—a position to which you’ve longed aspired, but maybe you’re wondering whether you have what it takes to deliver. Or perhaps you’re uncertain about teaming up with someone. It’s possible that you have more to offer them than they have to offer you.

It’s possible that someone has offered you an opportunity, and you’re wobbling on account of feelings of self-doubt. It may be that an investment of your time or resources is required too, and you’re not sure about whether you should jump in with both feet. Beneath it all, there’s your gut feeling, Libra. Trust that. After all, you’ve just come through a period that has involved strengthening your relationship with your higher self. I think, deep down, you’re worried about being swindled or losing something valuable like your reputation. While others may see this as a golden opportunity, it’s also possible that they see you as an opportunity to enrich themselves.

There’s no avoiding hard work. Get rich schemes that promise to make you thousands or millions with little or no effort are as dodgy as they sound. But if the offer is a serious one. If it’s just a matter of you doubting yourself, then take some time out to assess your capabilities. Look at those times in life when you’ve had to hit the ground running and achieved more than you thought you would—all through industry and focused attention to your craft.

It will all become clear by week’s end, Libra. In the meantime, research the prospect or opportunity before you. Assess your capabilities, and listen to your gut. How do you feel about what is being offered? Something tells me, Libra, that the best thing you can do this week is get your head down and get to work. If you are obliged to decide something this week, be focused and methodical in your approach. Treat the decision as you would a complex task that must be completed—with all the necessary checks and balances to be made. In the process, you could very well unearth the truth that has been eluding you and keeping you anxious and uncertain about the prospects ahead.

That knowledge could be vital to you now, Libra. It will help you affirm your self-belief and trust in yourself because that is the best path in any circumstance. Knowing yourself, your capabilities, your integrity, your goals, your desires, the things that move you, the ones you love or aspire to love–knowing these things will help you stay on course to leading a life that will fulfill you more than any get-rich scheme or gilded opportunity could. Choose to know yourself first. Then look more deeply into the problem or opportunity as it presents itself this week.

Focus on achieving your goals and trust your instincts this week. If something isn’t quite right, it will become apparent by the week’s end.

Scorpio

You may not know it yet, Scorpio, but someone has their eye on you—and in a good way. They want you to join their party and celebrate the good times you’ve just come through. There’s an emotional bond here—whether a solid and supportive business relationship or some other kind of partnership (including romance). Right now, though, you’re focused on the routines of daily life and work. Yet deep down, you know that there’s an opportunity to seize—and it’s not the kind that you can grab hold of and run away with. It’s the kind that requires work.

You’re aware that some decision needs to be made regarding this person (or persons) who have been eyeing you for a while now. It feels fated. Like the wheel is finally turning in your favor—at least in terms of emotional satisfaction, because I’m guessing you’re kind of over the drudgery aspect of life.

But there’s something under the radar about it all. Although things look upfront and celebratory on the surface, there’s some secretive element thrown in the mix. Maybe you or someone else isn’t being entirely open. Perhaps the situation calls for it. After all, you have every right to play your cards close to your chest and wait until the right moment to make your announcement.

You’re hoping it will be a satisfying experience. Your emotions are invested in this, Scorpio. I think it’s an idea more so than a person. You have a scheme in mind, and do want to team up with someone who will supply an emotionally stable and fulfilling partnership (in business and/or life). I think that’s very likely in the near future, Scorpio—especially if your motives are pure (and I suspect they are because they are driven by your desire to build a stable and happy life for yourself, your business partners, and your loved ones).

So, if you need to keep things on the down-low, for now, that is absolutely fine. When you make your announcement to the world, you will be well placed to make the most of the opportunities that are sure to be coming your way in the near future.

Sagittarius

I see. Yes. I know just what you’re going through, Sagittarius. You said something, and you can’t take it back. Maybe it hurt someone, or you’re the one who copped the hurtful words. I suspect that you might have snapped and said something that sounded a little harsher than you would have liked because you’re going through a rough patch right now, Sagittarius. You’re concentrating on getting through this, as you must, and don’t have time to tolerate fools gladly. You’re like the captain of a ship who’s being pestered by the cook about the dwindling rations during a storm that threatens to sink the ship and all hands with it.

You’ve come out of a phase of questioning yourself, and you thought you’d got past all the self-doubt. Then you went and opened your mouth. I know, it was trivial. What came out wasn’t earth-shattering—though you’re feeling as though it was. You were speaking the truth, though, weren’t you? That’s why those words came out with such force. Your deeper wisdom unleashed them, but perhaps they had to be said. I mean, there’s no point pretending that everything is alright when it’s not. If you’re going to get anywhere in life—even if it’s just further down the road to achieving happiness—you’ve got to speak up and speak your truth. You can’t let someone else overshadow you or dim your light.

Right now, you’re in a bit of an emotional muddle, but it will pass quickly, believe me. It’s possible that the harsh words came from another and not from you. But the spread of the cards suggests that you said what you said because you have a clear goal in mind. It goes to your sense of security, job satisfaction, and work ethic. So, I suspect that someone who wasn’t on your page, or in your league, tried to question you or put you in your place, and you pushed back and put them well and truly in their place (or perhaps that’s about to happen—in which case, be firm and clear, but avoid pushing your point more than you need to, for your own sake, Sagittarius).

The good news is that whatever verbal misfortune befalls you this week, it won’t hold you back from your triumph or change the way that others see you. In fact, it could well strengthen their faith in your leadership if you handle it with the calm resolve and deep commitment you are known for. You are trusted because you are known for heralding the efforts and aims of the team you lead and not for pandering to the whims of the sulky individuals trying to hang on your coattails, Sagittarius. 

Whatever this project is, Sagittarius, it promises to bring in abundance and good vibes this week, my friend. Your colleagues and all around you will admire your achievement, and you will feel utterly satisfied with the result by the week’s end.

Capricorn

I have a feeling that you’ve taken on a new job, responsibility, or role, and you were offered this because you’ve achieved some pretty good results recently. Or maybe it’s just that you’ve made a decision to go in harder and stronger on some career, business, or study plan, and now you’re wondering whether it was such a wise decision.

You’ve pulled off some fantastic results in the past. People look at you with awe. There’s something special in your bag of tricks, Capricorn. You’re a champion, and people like to consult or work with those who succeed. 

But you’re thinking that maybe these added responsibilities will weigh you down and affect your ability to manage other important matters on the work, educational, or home fronts. That’s not surprising. There’s a saying, If you want something done, ask a busy person. Well, that saying has resonance for you right now, Capricorn, because you are the busy person, and everyone is lining up. 

Crunch time is coming this week. Nothing bad. Just know that you need to be realistic about what you can achieve. You’re just one person, and if you take on work here, there, and everywhere—or help others to meet their goals and deadlines at the expense of meeting your own—you are going to resent these individuals and find yourself struggling to keep up.

This week is all about looking realistically at what you have to achieve, Capricorn. It’s about weighing the resources of time and energy against the responsibility you have to yourself and your aims and not trying to be everything to all people.

Yes, it’s great that you’re willing to mentor, encourage, support, train, and step in to help others. But you must take care of your responsibility to yourself first. Remember that this week when you’re running short on time or find yourself in a tight space because you stepped up and took on work that someone else might have done, or should have done, instead of handing the problem to you.

Just because you make it all look so easy doesn’t mean you have to ease everyone’s burden, Capricorn. Attempt to do so, and you’ll end up in a potentially tricky situation. If you’ve already made these commitments and can’t reasonably back out, use the pressure of this week as a reminder in the future the next time you offer to tie someone else’s shoelaces for them.

Aquarius

You’re sitting pretty right now, Aquarius, but that’s because you’ve done the hard work of delving into your emotions and striving to understand what you feel and why. We all have a history. And that history can sometimes feel like it’s dogging us—until we take on the work of facing up. Hopefully, you’ve been kind to yourself and taken the time to understand your emotional depths—the value that you bring to relationships, your compassion, and the good that is inside you. If you’ve made mistakes in the past (and haven’t we all?), you’re now ready to make a fresh start.

It can be scary. I know it may feel like you’re struggling to control opposing forces within you—those desires and longings that sometimes see you running roughshod over others aren’t your most endearing qualities. But you have a good heart, Aquarius. And your capacity to relate to others on emotional terms—to have those deep and meaningful conversations that can be so restorative when they’re undertaken with a big open heart like yours—is your strength. It may feel like a weakness at times. It’s perhaps for this reason that you wear your authority and your power so plainly for all to see.

But they will glimpse the deeper aspects of your character, Aquarius. You can’t hide behind your armor forever. Small steps ought to do it, though. Travel at the speed and distance that feels right for now.

You will encounter someone who is, or else reveal yourself to be, a profoundly impressionable and empathetic person. I don’t mean impressionable in a negative sense, but the exposure could see you recoiling into your shell and wondering why you can’t stay in there forever.

You can’t, Aquarius. At some point, you must embark on the journey of life again. You have changed—you know that much about yourself. And for this reason, you will encounter the world differently this time. Your renewed innocence and your abiding compassion will guide you.

You don’t have to wear your heart on your sleeve. You just have to be comfortable enough in your own skin to notice that others are, at times, equally reserved and anxious about the way they present to the world. We are all, to some degree, afraid of being hurt. That’s what it is to be human.

Promise yourself that you will take your own counsel rather than allow fear to hold you back from the things you long to do and the people with whom you want to interact. Counsel yourself to take those small, secure steps in the direction you want to go. You can take a leap of faith if that’s what you think is called for. But I think leaps of faith are often overrated. Take the steps that feel secure and safe, Aquarius. Trust yourself, and take time to determine where to place your trust.

The Majestic Tarot

Like all fictional narratives, the stories that emerge through tarot are not predictive. Instead, these stories offer new ways of seeing situations, alternative perspectives, and opportunities to remind oneself of the ups and downs we all must face in life.

Pisces

It’s possible that someone’s envious eye is causing a bit of a shake-up in your world. You’re in a good position and have earned the status, financial, and good name that you have acquired. But envy can make people misbehave. And that sometimes puts pressure on sensitive souls like you, Pisces. Don’t let your worst habits get the better of you. And don’t worry about the future. It will turn out all right. 

You are viewed in the most favorable terms, dear Pisces. Many love you. You’ve shown yourself to be capable. You have a commanding presence when you choose to turn your light on, and you are a gifted teacher and mentor to others. 

But now it’s time to be a mentor to yourself. Put down that bottle of vino or whatever poison you’re using to cover over the hard feelings you drive towards yourself. Take a step back and see yourself as others see you. This week, you will see all your efforts pay off. Any envy that someone feels towards you will no longer touch you. The worry that drove you into your cubbyhole will clear. The sun will come out. And it will be you and your achievements, your ideas, and your wisdom that pay the dividends in terms of the accolades that are due to you this week, Pisces.

No one goes into therapy to cry a river of tears. If that’s been your experience, then ditch the program and follow your own lead by going in search of something better. But, if it’s not about who you unload your deepest worries to, then know that the outcome this week will be very satisfying, Pisces. The work you have done towards whatever it is that has brought you here has been seen and recognized for its merits.

You have so much to offer and are such a lively and intelligent soul, the world would be full of fools not to see the full measure of you and know that your skills deserve the recognition that they will achieve this week.
