Your Biggest Regret, Based On Your Zodiac + Tarot


Your card: 2 of Cups

You regret not starting a relationship with that person who clearly–in retrospect, anyway–had a crush on you, too. That’s probably why you let everyone know you’re into them as soon as you catch feelings now. You never want to wonder “what if” again.


Your card: 8 of Swords

You regret thinking that you were powerless when it simply wasn’t true. You have so much say in what happens in your life, but in the past, you’d blame the universe for things not working out. Hopefully now you’ve harnessed your full potential.


Your card: The Emperor

You regret putting more energy into ambition, which may have cost you friendships and relationships. You’ve found that, as you get older, the personal relationships you foster mean more than making the most money or having the most prestigious career.


Your card: The Fool

You regret not taking big enough risks when you were younger. You’d often go for the safe option rather than the one that scared you. You missed so many opportunities because you gave in to your anxiety.


Your card: 4 of Cups

You regret not taking more action in your past. You’d sit back and hope that things would all work out, but you wouldn’t put the work into to make that happen. But you’ve learned from your past mistakes and now go after what you want.


Your card: The Moon

You regret not telling someone the truth when you had the chance. Instead you kept it in to the point that, when it finally got revealed, you were much worse off. Now you know to tell people your feelings right away so they don’t morph and change as you hold them back.


Your card: The Sun

You regret not being more serious about the parts of life that matter–especially those that don’t sound fun, like work or taxes or school. Later in life, you’ve learned that you can still have fun and be happy even when you’re dealing with the minutiae of adulthood.


Your card: 3 of Cups

You regret not spending more time with friends. They’d invite you to events or casual hangs and you wouldn’t always show up. As you get older and friendships drop off, you wish you would have fostered them while everyone still had the time.


Your card: 6 of Pentacles

You regret not being more generous with your time or money. There were so many opportunities where you could have helped people, but you didn’t. Luckily, it’s never too late for generosity.


Your card: 5 of Pentacles

You regret worrying so much about literally everything. It turns out most of the stuff you agonized over didn’t even matter. And now, rather than wasting time on negativity, you’re free to spend your energy on better things.


Your card: Death

You regret not embracing change when it found you. Instead, you struggled against it, wasting energy when you could have just gone with the flow. Now you know that change is inevitable and it’s so much easier when you go along with it.


Your card: Page of Cups

You regret your naivety in your youth. You’d believe people when maybe they didn’t deserve the trust, and it would often come back to bite you. While you’re less likely to fall for it now, you luckily haven’t lost your sense of wonder or dreamer-like imagination.
