Here’s her predictions for YOUR star sign…

ARIES (Three of Coins, Five of Coins, Seven of Wands)

You’re all out of sorts, Aries, feeling bruised and spited by someone or something, as shown by the competitive and brusque Seven of Wands and the regretful, sorrowful Five of Coins.

It has hit you that you’ve lost out on something you wanted, or that someone has done you wrong, and even your typically positive and sunny nature can’t shield you from this hard truth.

Sometimes it’s better to swallow the bitter pill fast, and then it’s done with. So, acknowledge the truth of this situation and then realise that the worst of it is over.

Truly, it is, because now you know where you stand and you can start to rebuild (something you relish doing).

The Three of Coins shows that, all along, someone has been admiring your efforts and character, and is preparing to make you a better offer than whatever it is you think you’ve lost.

Whatever you think this might be linked to, give it a helping hand by putting yourself in front of the right people (even in a “virtual” way) and in opportunity’s path. Something better is coming. Soon.

TAURUS (King of Wands, Nine of Wands, Page of Wands)

A trio of Wands cards this week, Taurus, so it’s all-action. In a nutshell, you’re closer to success and a breakthrough than you think, and you must stick at it, push through this final hurdle.

The Nine of Wands shows there is one more challenge ahead of you, and now is not the time to give up.

It’s going to be a LOT easier than you think it is, so run at this obstacle.

The Page of Wands reveals you might need to try a few different approaches to hop over it, or combine a few of them into one.

Be creative, be crafty, be flexible. It’s not necessarily about graft or effort, but about spotting the shrewd move that will get you over the hump swiftly and in one piece.

The King of Wands asks you to be bold, take a risk, push yourself out of your comfort zone, and you will be richly rewarded.

On the other side of this obstacle lie smooth seas and plain sailing, so get to it. You’ve got this!

GEMINI (Two of Cups, Ten of Swords, The Star)

Mmm, I don’t know how to tell you this really but I think you’re going to end a longstanding friendship or even romantic relationship, because you know, deep down, that it’s not right and you want / deserve better.

If that feels WAY out of your current spectrum of thinking then it could be that you’re going to end something else for THE SAKE OF keeping this relationship intact.

Either way, something has to end, and it’s for the good of everyone.

The Two of Cups shows that a close relationship is on your mind right now, and it’s a very important one.

The Ten of Swords shows that something is going to end, abruptly and finally.

Maybe it’s this relationship, but maybe it’s something that has affected or damaged it, and you’re at long last about to address that and make changes.

Whatever it is, rest assured that it will all end well. The Star is one of the tarot’s most positive cards and represents dreams come true, wishes, and blessing on all of our endeavours.

So, do what feels right, do what feels necessary, and have faith that it WILL have the desired effect

CANCER (The Devil, Death, Ace of Coins)

Powerful cards of personal transformation this week, Cancer, and a surge of willpower and determination to break a bad, or self-limiting, habit or self-belief.

The Devil is the key card here. It’s about temptation, addictions, mental patterns which keep you in a negative place even though you long to change.

Identify something about yourself you wish were different, something that represents a path of least resistance you keep going down. NOW is the time to change the game here.

Death is the totem of transformation, this old way of doing things is closing down, and you can start over, in a new way with a fresh outlook.

Doesn’t that feel inspiring: to be free of your old habits, and ready to start anew?

The Ace of Coins shows this road to renewal starts now, and continues long into the future.

This is a whole new way of being, and it will only grow and strengthen as you practice it over time.

Invest in this new pathway, and build on it each day. Little by little, you can travel far from where you stand today.

LEO (The Star, The Moon, Six of Swords)

The Six of Swords shows you are preparing to move on from your current situation, and it feels “right” this time, it feels like this was all meant to be and you’re following your destiny.

Over the next six months, things could really change for you- maybe your home or location, maybe your job, maybe your relationship.

Wherever, in life, you feel “growing pains”, acknowledge that this is a nudge to move you into new landscapes.

The Moon shows you don’t yet quite have all the information that you need in order to act.

I think, by July, you will, but do some more digging and research, look into your options, build up your knowledge, ask the right questions.

The Star shows that this is a magical project, leading to rewards and fulfilment and prosperity. The higher you aim, the better the outcome.

This can truly be a dream-come-true, and it starts HERE. Think big!

VIRGO (Nine of Cups, Ten of Swords, Six of Coins)

There is a two-fold plan ahead for you this week, Virgo, and one which will lead you towards true contentment and peace, as shown by the wishful and positive Nine of Cups.

You’re close to it, but there are just two more key actions you need to undertake over the next seven days.

Step One: Ten of Swords. Something has to end, be set adrift, cut ties with. It’s something you despise anyway, and have had more than enough of.

You’ve been dragging this commitment on because you have a strong sense of duty, but enough is enough.

Do yourself a favour and cut ties with this dead weight. You will feel so much better.

Step Two: Six of Coins. Engage your released energy into random acts of kindness, good deeds, supportive acts, kindness and fellowship.

Make someone’s day, heck, make as many people’s days as you can!

All this good karma will find a way back to you and, in the meantime, you’ll derive so much true pleasure from making people you care about smile.

Be a force for good this week.

LIBRA (The Lovers, Eight of Wands, Ace of Wands)

It’s a high energy kind of week for you, Libra, with lots going on and lots of potential to be seized and capitalised upon. Are you ready?

The Ace and Eight of Wands shows that your phone / laptop / tablet / mailbox / DMs are going to be blowing up.

Everyone wants to get in touch, invitations fly in left, right and centre, proposals and opportunities to get involved with new activities are abundant.

It feels good, and you must react positively. Don’t procrastinate over all of this opportunity – say YES.

The Lovers shows, though, that you will have to push yourself to do that. This card is about optional-ness, indecisiveness, dithering… all of which you are famous for!

Get out of your own way, Libra, and make sure you just say YES to everything, don’t give yourself the chance to dillydally.

The Lovers also hints a new romance could be on the cards for you this week my friend. Enjoy!

SCORPIO (King of Coins, Seven of Swords, King of Wands) 

Two Kings (Coins and Wands) shows that you are vying for a position of leadership and power this week, and even though that sounds very grand, it might even just be domestically or in a friendship (although the workplace is a hot contender).

Look to where you feel you have a worthy “equal” and you feel the need to assert yourself, for this is where the action will be this week.

The Seven of Swords shows that an element of bad blood has crept in here, and you need to play it cautiously.

You’re no stranger to altercations, and you understand the dynamics of rivalry better than most (you are ruled by Mars, the Roman god of war, for starters).

Don’t let your “opponent” get the upper hand by making you do something rash or underhand that they can expose down the line.

If in doubt, play it safe. If it feels like temptation or wrongness, don’t do it.

Keeping your head in check, being prudent, focussing on your strengths rather than their weaknesses will get you through this little episode, and ideally you can be friends again afterwards!

SAGITTARIUS (Five of Wands, Six of Coins, The World)

The “high road” awaits you this week Sagittarius, because you’re going to have to lead the way out of this impasse by setting a good example and being the change that you wish to see.

The Five of Wands shows you’re in a sticky situation with someone, and it’s very tempting to get down in the muck and scrap with them.

Ordinarily, you might, you quite like a good ruckus, but it’s not the best idea here.

The World shows you need to think long-term, to think about not doing further damage, about the fact you want this person, or what they can offer you, in your life down the road, so you need them on side.

There is a bigger picture here. Reflect on this situation until you can see it, because then you’ve got the motivation to play things cleverly.

The Six of Coins shows you need to do the right thing, play fair, offer compromises, be the “bigger person” if you like.

It won’t feel as awful as you think, because you’ll have that motivation to guide you onwards, and you’ll know you are part of the solution now, not the problem.

CAPRICORN (Ten of Swords, King of Coins, Seven of Swords)

You don’t really suffer fools gladly, Cap, but neither are you really invested in conflict or calling people out on stuff… unless you feel you have to, and you HAVE reached that point.

The Seven and Ten of Swords combine to show you’ve had enough of someone’s BS, whether they’re being unfair, entitled, martyr-like, spoilt or nasty, you have had it up to HERE.

You can see it’s just getting worse, and that the poison they’re spreading is leaking into all kinds of ponds and pools.

It’s time to execute “Operation Clear-up”, and you, my friend, are leading it.

The King of Coins is you right now, taking charge here and saying what needs to be said, doing what needs to be done.

You are a clear-eyed pragmatist, and you don’t do anything out of spite or malice, it’s all from a place of good intentions and that will be accepted.

Get on and get involved and get this mess cleaned up. You can do it, and others will be very grateful. 

AQUARIUS (The Hanged Man, King of Swords, Page of Coins)

The Hanged Man is a signature card for these times: limbo. Life on hold. The “pause button” is on.

And it is frustrating and boring and disappointing sometimes, for sure. You can’t fight it, though, so you need to learn to relax into this “new normal”, Aquarius.

The King of Swords and Page of Coins shows that intellectual pursuits are critical for you.

Puzzles, courses, books, twist-y and clever box-sets- whatever intrigues you and challenges you.

Order it in and get stuck in. You can learn a lot right now, and it could even be educational stimulus that helps you go further faster when we eventually return to a more stable world.

Life is on hold, but it is not over. You can still make a difference, find personal ambitions to work on, make great memories, be highly entertained.

It’s just been a bad week, don’t let this chapter get you down. Get your brain busy and curious again and find a new trivial pursuit.

PISCES (Six of Cups, Nine of Cups, Five of Swords)

Sometimes, we all need a break from the “present”, and the Five of Swords shows that there is a live situation in your life which has gotten testing and difficult, and you need a time out from it.

The answer lies in the past. The Six and Nine of Cups reveal that a pleasant and rejuvenating time can be had if you made the effort to reconnect with family, friends or colleagues who you’ve lost touch with.

Take a little sojourn down Memory Lane, and look for people you once had great affection for.

The sheer joy and comfort of getting back in touch and reminiscing will restore your energy levels, give you a “mental vacation” from any current stresses, and put you in a great position to feel stronger and more prepared to tackle your issues.

Sometimes we just need a little reprieve, a different perspective, a time out, and that’s what this week can be.
