The first week of a new year and it’s no surprise that the tarot is guiding us to realign our behaviours and mindsets. It’s time to transform our personality as a whole. Each one of us holds the power to foresee the very near future. We call it intuition. Allow yourself to be guided and let go of your need to control. Give life time to unfold and reveal the relevant pieces this week. Many will have to face their shadows as the 2nd January new moon sets the stage for a lot to happen this coming year. This year is not giving us any options and especially this week is in no mood to mollycoddle anyone. Stop living in your head and respond to the present appropriately – this is the only way forward.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
Unapologetically chase your dreams. This is a week when all energies will align in your favour. Choose your point of focus and set a powerful intention. If you have translated a long held dream into a goal statement, now is the good time to do that and put down your plan of action. Those who feel called to embark on a soul-searching journey, learn to meditate. Don’t be surprised if your purpose is revealed in the months to come. The restlessness many Capricorns have been experiencing may intensify this week with New Moon in your sign. This is a great week to reset your life in every way possible.
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
Put your ideas down on paper. This is a week to flesh out all those ideas you have been holding on to and choose which ones are ready for execution.

You will get a lot done this week if you have a clear list of what you want to accomplish. This is not a week to make any rash decisions, especially not financial ones.

Do not take responsibility for anyone else’s baggage this week. Watch your mental and emotional health this week.
Aries: March 21 – April 20
You are the leader this week. Take charge and delegate responsibility wisely. Play on other people’s skills, strengths and talents for that is your strength. Create goals for yourself and ask the same of your team or even loved ones. Remember goals are not to be restricted to your workplace. It’s good to have personal goals too. You are being warned though to not rush to make these goals happen. Pace is of paramount importance and you must adhere to a sense of balance as well as harmony in all aspects of your life. Respond to any conflicts appropriately instead of reacting impulsively. There is no need to be pulled into anyone else’s drama.
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
Romance is on the cards this week. Are you going to be the charmer or the charmed? If you are single expect an exciting encounter and remember to flirt back. Those who are in relationships will make a few sweet memories this week and do not hold back. Some of you are trapped in your head and are allowing your fears to limit you. Do not be afraid to love or to express your feelings. If you change your perspective this week you will see the infinite possibilities available to you.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Make it happen – that’s your one line brief for this week. The force is truly with you as every step of yours will be received by many options and opportunities opening up for you. This is a week to be quick on your feet and to work with commitment. Avoid any shortcuts. It isn’t about getting things done fast, but rather about doing it in a way that will be in your best interests. For some a new world is calling you. A move to another city or country is on the cards. And if you have been thinking about it, take action. Embrace any sense of feeling lost that may come up as it’s normal to feel that way in new and unfamiliar spaces.
Cancer: June 22 – July 22
You are in the last stretch of a goal you have been working on. Expect a challenge, but do not back down. It’s the final test and you will ace it. This is a week to put all your wisdom into action. Believe in yourself as the Universe is waiting to see exactly that. The week will also be filled with signs and messages from the Universe. If you need guidance or are feeling unsure, ask for a sign and know that you will receive an answer. It is a week to be curious and open minded. You never know what guidance you will receive.
Leo: July 23 – August 23
The Universe is in the mood to grant a few wishes. Ask and you shall receive – yes, it’s that kind of a week. Count your blessings and see the fullness of your life. Many will have reasons to celebrate this week. Some of you need to detach yourself from your emotions and use tact to get your work done. It’s not a week for aggression, but rather one for wit. Be street smart especially in conflicts or arguments. Some will be called forward with their creative prowess and if you are one of them then rise to challenge. Step forward and be seen.
Virgo: August 24 – September 22
For some, this will be a carefree week with zero concerns that the rest of the world will be wrapped in. You won’t need to ‘adult’ for one more week. Trust your gut, listen to your heart and you will have a blast this week. For some this week might get a tad bit intense and a sweeping change will alter your reality in a big way. Fate has stepped in to realign your being and your life. Trust what is happening and go through the motions as required. It isn’t a week to be complacent, it is one to show up for whatever is required of you. Whichever group you fall in, trust that you are in the right place at the right time.
Libra: September 23 – October 23
Pour your energy into a new project or then allow a new cycle of life to begin. All the resources you need will appear as you need them. You have everything you need to make everything happen in your life and this is a truth you need to start trusting. Infinite opportunities are available to you and all you need is to stay true to your intentions. You will be able to cut through any noise or drama. Some may have gone through a bit of a lull. But that phase ends this week. It’s time to get up and start reworking old plans or putting down new ones. The only thing the Universe reminds you of is to be careful how you use your influence as your voice now carries weight.
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
Allow your inner child to come out and play. Responsibilities of the past no longer exist and there is time for a new set which will anyway be of your choosing. Lean into happy memories and let them fuel you. Look at your finances and invest in your financial freedom this week. Work towards material security and know that you are already living an abundant life. This week will be a mix of looking at life as an adult while also indulging the childlike energy within.
Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
Your presence will matter the most this week. Be mindful and you will create the kind of impact you should. Use the influence you have on your loved ones to guide them and to everyone see the better option. Be careful to not be high-handed or aggressive in any conflicts. Your life has come full circle and there is a sense of peace that is growing within. Enjoy this feeling and allow yourself to sit in an energy of trust. Question is where to from here? What do you want to experience, create or build? Let the answer to this question guide you through the coming weeks.
