A Tarot Reader Predicts What Each Zodiac Should Expect Before January 23

Note: This week’s reading features a lot of cards that are kind of a big deal (loads of major arcana–the fancy named cards–and court cards–the Kings, Queens, Pages, etc). Everyone get ready for the drama.

Aries

Your card: Death

This isn’t death in the way you normally picture it. Instead, a phase in your life is ending. Maybe a relationship or a job or even how you perceive something. And with that end comes transition and new energy to replace the old. It isn’t a true ending, since something always comes in to take its place. Hopefully the new energy is positive and fulfilling.

Taurus

Your card: Page of Cups

Something surprising is happening this week. You’re not always that thrilled with surprises–you’d rather know what’s coming at all times. But the cards show that your surprise will be a good one. A happy little change. You just have to be willing to see it for the boon that it is.

Gemini

Your card: The Tower

Everything you know is about to be challenged. Something in your life isn’t what it seems and learning about it will shake you to your very core. I’d like to say that it’s not a big deal–for your sake–but the cards say otherwise. Hopefully you’ll be stellar at weathering the storm.

Cancer

Your card: King of Cups

Normally you lead with your emotions, even if they are a little volatile or too big for your chest. This week is going to be a lot calmer than normal in that regard. You can expect emotional balance, control, and serenity. Ride with it and take the time to meditate and rest. You might even find it empowering.

Leo

Your card: King of Swords

You’re giving off the serious energy of a leader this week, even if you’re not a literal boss. You’ve got the quiet authority and intellectual power that make people want to listen to you. Just make sure you harness that energy for good and not to make some weird power play. Be the good, fun boss–not the one everyone complains about when you’re not around.

Virgo

Your card: Page of Swords

You’re going to have an epiphany this week–some idea that’ll get you excited. Don’t let the moment pass you by. Seize the idea and do the research required to make it happen. Channel your Virgo energy by making lists and filling out spreadsheets. If it still feels like a good idea by the end of the week, you know what to do.

Libra

Your card: Queen of Cups

You’re usually a good friend, and you’ll be exercising those muscles this week. If one of your inner circle comes to you with a problem, be a well of compassion, calm, and comfort. Sometimes people just need someone to listen and rub their back while they let it all out. It’s amazing that you can be that safe place for someone you care about.

Scorpio

Your card: The Empress

Your feminine energy will be taking center stage this week. Embrace the abundance of nurturing energy that you feel booming through you. Open up to friends in ways you normally keep hidden. Help someone who needs it. Be that strong presence for people in your life. And if you’re feeling motivated, create some beautiful art.

Sagittarius

Your card: Strength

Your strength will be tested this week. While this could mean literal strength, it’s more likely about inner strength. Can you withstand what this week has in store for you? This card shows that you have everything inside to handle just about anything. And, just like when you work out actual muscles, you’ll probably be exhausted when it’s all over.

Capricorn

Your card: King of Wands

Your charisma is through the charts this week thanks to your creativity. People will be drawn to you and your art. You might as well go with it and create even more for people to fawn over. It’s not every week you feel this way, so do your best to savor it.

Aquarius

Your card: The Chariot

If you’ve been feeling stalled in life lately, you’ll finally feel some forward momentum this week. The finish line is getting closer. But this card requires you to keep working hard. The Chariot doesn’t move itself–you have to be the one in the driver’s seat, steering in the right direction.

Pisces

Your card: 3 of Swords

Your cards haven’t been great lately, and this week is no exception. You’ll be feeling some emotional pain and even might go through heartbreak. Grief and loneliness are powerful emotions and they can sometimes pull you under. It’s how you pick yourself back up that will determine how this week ends. I’m rooting for you!
