A Tarot Reader Predicts What Every Zodiac Can Expect In January 2023

Aries

Your card: Three of Wands

This month will be full of progress for you, Aries. The world is opening up for you, and you’re finally feeling ready to take a chance and step forward confidently into the unknown. The theme for your January is expansion, so keep your mind open and don’t be afraid to break out of your comfort zone—it can be scary, but I promise you it’ll be worth it.

Taurus

Your card: Five of Cups

This month will bring some disappointments your way, Taurus—and it may be a difficult pill to swallow. You may spend the rest of January struggling to move on and pull yourself back together, but know this: There is still a silver lining waiting for you out there. What is difficult for you now will lead to greater things down the road. This month will bring you a great reminder: Even when things feel like they’re at their worst, there are still good things in your life—it’s up to you to acknowledge them.

Gemini

Your card: Ace of Wands, reversed

You’ll be ready to hit the ground running as soon as 2023 begins, Gemini, but the Universe has other plans for you. You have a lot of energy, creativity, and passion brewing inside of you this month, but when you try to move forward with them, you may find yourself feeling stuck or lacking the necessary resources. Just know that you have time to step back, take a beat, and figure things out as you go—you may not have everything figured out right this minute, but that doesn’t mean you never will. Practice patience this January.

Cancer

Your card: The Hierophant

This month, you’ll be stepping up in your life in a way you might not usually do. You may be taking charge of your spiritual path or working hard to master a trade or hobby—or, if you’ve already mastered it, you may be taking on a mentor role to help someone else follow your sacred path. Whatever it may be, you’ll feel particularly elevated this January—and with that will come a feeling that things are finally falling into place for you.

Leo

Your card: Six of Swords, reversed

You may be dealing with a lot of conflict this month, Leo—but the thing is, it will be primarily internal. You’re struggling to move on from a situation that you know is no longer serving you or to make a change that you know is necessary for your well-being. Is it closure that you need to finally let go of the past? Or is there some lesson you’ve been resisting acknowledging? Whatever it is, January is the time to sit with these difficult emotions and give yourself permission to move forward—and to leave the excess baggage behind.

Virgo

Your card: Seven of Wands

You might feel like you’re spending the month fighting to protect your peace this month, Virgo—and that might be because, well, you likely are. You’ve worked hard to get to where you are, but not everyone is happy to see you thriving. It’s possible that there’s someone who wants what you have or simply doesn’t think you deserve it, and because of that, you may find yourself expending a lot of energy not only trying to justify your success but also trying to prove others wrong in the process. Just know this: What people think doesn’t actually matter. The proof is in the hard work you do—and that’s enough.

Libra

Your card: The Lovers

The year is starting off strong for you as you find a sense of harmony in your relationships and other parts of your life. You’re going to spend January consciously choosing to follow your bliss and to do the things that you know are good for you in the long run. While The Lovers can certainly signify that love is in the air, it can also mean you find yourself romanticizing the life you’re currently living—whatever it may be, the best results will come when you choose to live your best life while working to become the best version of yourself.

Scorpio

Your card: Two of Wands

Get ready to start making some progress this month, Scorpio. If you’ve been feeling inspired and motivated lately, and now’s the time to finally start planning out your moves. Now is the time to explore your options and start asking yourself what you want your life to look like in the coming year, because the Universe is offering you room to grow and what you decide to do with that is ultimately up to you. The world is your oyster!

Sagittarius

Your card: Three of Swords, reversed

Things may have been tough for you recently, and though the bad may have already past, you may be having a difficult time finding your footing. It’s possible you’re struggling to move on or it may just be that what you’ve been through has changed the way you see yourself—you can’t seem to show yourself any compassion. But January invites you to start working on yourself, because the road to healing is in front of you, and it may be uncomfortable but it’s a necessary journey to take. Now is the time to pay attention to the way you talk to yourself and to try turning your attention away from the things that have already passed—because there are silver linings waiting up ahead, so long as you look for them.

Capricorn

Your card: King of Cups, reversed

This month is all about your own emotional journey, Capricorn—which, I know, isn’t your favorite thing to hear. But it’s necessary to look within and start doing the work necessary to find that inner balance, especially if you’ve been struggling with feelings of depression, anger, and anxiousness lately. Remember: You may not always be able to control the world around you, but you can work on yourself, which can certainly make the rest of the world easier to deal with. Pay close attention to your thoughts and ask yourself why you may be feeling the way you are—and don’t shy away from the things you may learn about yourself this January. Starting the year off on this path will only ensure a happier, smoother 2023.

Aquarius

Your card: Nine of Swords, reversed

You may have been dealing with a lot of anxiety and inner turmoil lately, Aquarius. You can’t seem to shake the negativity—but whether you’re ready for it or not, now is the time for you to confront them head-on. If you’ve been keeping your worries to yourself, it’s time to let them out into the light by confiding in a friend, mentor, or even a therapist. This is the time to start asking yourself why you think you may be feeling this way and practicing showing yourself compassion—because oftentimes, when we’re going through something difficult, we’re tougher on ourselves than necessary. So long as you’re willing to do the work, you’ll be on your way to releasing these feelings by the end of the month—your healing journey is waiting for you.

Pisces

Your card: Ten of Wands, reversed

You may feel like you’re carrying the entire world on your shoulders this month, Pisces—but it’s time for you to recognize that this isn’t the kind of thing you should be taking on alone. It’s time for you to acknowledge that it’s time to start asking others for help, whether that means venting to a friend, confiding to a therapist, or even delegating work to a colleague who has the capacity to help. It’s not your job to carry everything by yourself, and January will be a journey of you coming to terms with the fact that the stress you’re dealing with simply isn’t worth it. It’s time to start putting yourself first and doing what’s best for your well-being—and you’ll be grateful you decided to take this step.
