A Tarot Reader Predicts What Each Zodiac Should Expect Before January 16


Your card: 6 of Cups

You aren’t exactly the type to look behind you. You don’t get hung up on the past and instead prefer to charge forward into the future you create for yourself. This week though, your past will be stuck in your mind. Perhaps someone you used to know will show back up again. Or maybe the consequences of your past self will finally come to find you.


Your card: King of Swords

Your mind will be feeling especially sharp this week, and that acuity will give you some motivation to get things done. You might as well harness that power while you have it. Any projects you’ve had on the back-burner are no match for you when you’re feeling like this.


Your card: Death

This isn’t the bad omen you might think it is. Instead, the Death card is all about one phase ending and another beginning. You’re entering a transition period this week. For most people, transitions and change are rough regardless of where you’ve been or where you’re headed. But if you embrace the transition, the process won’t be as life-shaking.


Your card: 8 of Wands

You might be getting some interesting news this week that’ll propel you toward change–whether you want it or not. Sometimes things happen that are totally beyond your control, and all you can really affect is how you handle the situation. Are you going to focus on your feeling of loss, or will you stand tall and deal with this unwanted change like a champ?


Your card: The Empress

It’s time to channel your inner feminine energy this week, however the idea of femininity manifests for you. You’ll be feeling extra powerful and will feel like you can do just about anything. And you can, so you might as well go for what you want. Listen to your intuition and go for it.


Your card: Strength

The Strength card demonstrates two important things: Strength to do with whatever comes your way, and the courage to do things outside your comfort zone. This week, you might come across the opportunity to use both. Go into the situation knowing that you can handle anything as long as you stay true to yourself.


Your card: 9 of Cups

Not every week is filled with turmoil or upheaval. For you, you can expect satisfaction and good vibes instead. Nothing crazy is going to happen, good or bad. Just ride out this week’s medium good energy. After all, things could go totally haywire next week. In that case, you’ll be looking back on this time with fondness.


Your card: 6 of Pentacles

You like to keep to yourself, and that’s totally valid, but you’d be better off focusing on generosity this week. If there’s someone in your life you haven’t given a gift for the holidays yet, now’s the time–it’s never too late. Help people, donate time or money, ride the wave of generosity that’s pulling you through the second week of January.


Your card: 8 of Swords

You’ve been feeling a little powerless lately, and that’s especially got you down this week. You might feel an urge to do something stupid and dramatic, potentially ruining some friendships in the process. If you really want to burn a bridge, wait until next week. If you still feel the urge then, go for it. Just know there’s no turning back.


Your card: 3 of Wands

While many have already given up on their New Year’s resolutions, you’re still charging ahead. (To the surprise of no one.) You’re especially goal-oriented this week with an eye to your future. Just make sure you enjoy what’s going on in the present, too. It’d be a shame if you never embraced what you have now.


Your card: 3 of Cups

While you’re often working on solo projects, this week is all about what you can do with others. Whether it’s collaboration at work or inviting a friend to help you with your hobbies, you’re better off welcoming people into your carefully controlled world. You don’t always have to go it alone.


Your card: 10 of Swords

There’s no way I can make this sound better than it is. This is a bummer card to get. It’s all about betrayal and loss. Something’s going to end this week, and it’s most likely something interpersonal. Maybe a friendship breakup or the ending of a relationship. I hope for your sake that the cards are off the mark.
