Your card: Six of Wands
You’re finally going to be getting the recognition you deserve this month, Aries. You’ve been putting in the work and pushing forward, and now you’re starting to see the fruits of your labor. You may not be at the end of your journey, whatever it may be, but you’re certainly reaching a milestone and seeing success in some form or another. Now is the time to celebrate the hardships you’ve overcome and congratulate yourself for getting so far, but that doesn’t mean you should stop pushing yourself forward—there is still farther to go, just know that this is an auspicious sign that you can and will make it.
Your card: Five of Swords
You’ve been fighting a difficult battle lately, Taurus—but at what cost? Even if you come out of this as the victor, you’re likely to walk away feeling worse than before. That’s because when you choose to win at all costs, you’re likely to sacrifice something important along the way—maybe it’s a friendship, an important connection, your dignity, or even your own well-being. Whatever this conflict may be, it’s taking a toll on you this month, and there’s only one solution: You need to learn to pick your battles and let the rest go. Things won’t always go the way you think they should, and even if you’re willing to put everything on the line, you’re not always going to win. Learn what you can from this situation, then put your energy toward something more important—namely, moving on.

Right about now, it probably feels like the world is wearing you down, Gemini. The weight on your shoulders has grown too heavy and you may even feel like you can’t do anything right. It’s an awful feeling, but please know that it’s not going to last forever. The truth is, you’re never going to satisfy everyone, and you’re never going to be able to do everything you wish you could. Instead of giving into others’ expectations or being hard on yourself, remind yourself that your well-being is more important. If you’ve been taking on too much, take a step back and look at what you can delegate to others or put on pause for now. If friends or family are giving you a hard time, start setting boundaries. Because when the world starts to feel like too much, the best thing you can do is what is best for you in the moment—you can figure out the rest along the way.
Your card: The Hermit
You’re going to be spending a lot of time with yourself this month, Cancer—but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. This may be an indication that it’s time to take a step back from the rest of the world and start working on yourself—we’re talking self-care, contemplation, and maybe even a spiritual journey. If you’ve been feeling far away from yourself or confused about the path you’re on, this is the time to start reevaluating your priorities and asking yourself what you really want from life. Because whether you recognize it or not, you have the answers you’re seeking—you just have to take the time to get reacquainted with that little voice in your soul that’s been desperately needing your attention. The good news is that you’ll come out of this season of your life feeling relaxed, recharged, and ready to keep moving forward.

This month is full of opportunity for you, Leo—so long as you choose to take advantage of it. You may be feeling more inspired than usual lately, and while this card may not necessarily be a sign of definitive success, it is an indication that you have the resources you need to take the first steps to get there. Now is the time to start focusing on the things you can do now, on the research and education necessary to do well, and on your intentions, because this energy is great for manifesting your dreams. The world is opening up for you.

You likely feel like a fraud this month, Virgo—or, alternatively, like you’re the one getting frauded. It’s likely you’ll know which side you’re on in your situation, because if you’re not the one who’s trying to get away with something (whether that means acting deceitfully or betraying someone), then it’s likely that you’re the victim here. If you’re the one being dishonest, really take a step back and ask yourself why. Is it really worth it? Will the possible rewards outweigh the possible fallout if you get caught? But if you’re on the receiving end of bad behavior, it’s time to start working on boundaries and really digging into why you let people treat you the way they do—and whether you can really afford to keep letting it happen.
Your card: Three of Wands, reversed
There’s so much waiting for you out there, Libra—and yet for some reason, you’re struggling to see it. It’s possible you’ve grown a little too comfortable in your comfort zone and are afraid of the dangers of putting yourself out there; on the other hand, you might be left feeling like no matter how hard you try to move forward, something is always holding you back. If it’s the latter, this can be a frustrating energy to be stuck with, but trust the process—it’s likely that it’s happening for a reason and it’s just not your time yet. But if you’re the one who’s holding yourself back, it’s time to get real with what you want in your life and whether or not you could ever be happy feeling stagnant. Do not be afraid to dream bigger.
Your card: Ace of Swords
The world is opening up for you, Scorpio—this month you’re feeling inspired, motivated, and more determined than you have in a while. What may have seemed murky to you before suddenly seems clearer than ever, and now you know what you must do—so if there have been any ideas you’ve been sitting on or projects you’ve had trouble starting, this is the time to really focus on getting them moving. This is a card about new beginnings and cutting through all the noise to get to the things that really matter—just be careful not to act too impulsively, because if you move without thinking things through properly, you’re less likely to set yourself up for success.
Your card: Ten of Pentacles, reversed
This is the time to reevaluate your position in life, Sagittarius—whatever that position may be. If you’re struggling with money, job security, or even family, it’s time to take a step back and figure out if the things you’re currently doing are actually helping the situation or making it worse. What steps can you take to try to better your situation? On the flip side, it’s totally possible that you’re stable in every sense of the word and yet still somehow not happy with it. If this is the case, it’s time for you to get real about the things that actually make you happy, because it may not be the acclaim or the material possessions that you’ve wrapped your self-worth up in. Whatever it may be, it’s okay to look at your life and say, “This is not what I actually want.” It’s a scary thing to admit, but it’s also freeing, because it gives you the opportunity to chase after the things that are actually important to you and fix what you worry may be broken.
Your card: The Chariot
If life has felt difficult for you lately, Capricorn, or if there’s been something you feel like you’ve been working toward for far too long, this is your sign to keep going. This month you’ll be overcoming conflicts and moving forward, no matter what obstacles may stand in your way. You may not be at the finish line yet, but you’re getting there. This is not the time to slow down or give up but to stay the course and believe in yourself fully, because success is on the horizon.
Your card: Strength, reversed
This month, it’s more important than usual for you to look inward and check in on yourself. Are there certain emotions you’ve been bottling up? Have you been feeling burnt out? Have you been suffering from imposter syndrome or reeling from a hit at your self-esteem? Whatever it is, there is something you’ve probably been overlooking or allowing to fester deep inside you, and it’s important that you deal with it now rather than letting it worsen. This is the time to practice self-care, reconnect with yourself and your inner power, and remind yourself that you are human and you are doing your best. Self-compassion is your greatest strength right now, so remember: You’re doing better than you think you are, and you’re more resilient than you believe.
Your card: The Magician
This month is full of potential for you, Pisces. You’ve got the magic at your fingertips and everything you need inside you—whether you fully realize that or not. This card is a sign that you have all the resources you need to get to where you want to be, so it’s important for you to tap into your potential and use your trademark creativity to turn your ideas into reality. This is also a great time for you to start manifesting your dream life, because if you can figure out a clear idea of what you want now, you’ll have the power to take those first few steps to get there. Never underestimate your own magic.
