Here’s her predictions for YOUR star sign…

ARIES (Three of Coins, The Wheel of Fortune, Queen of Coins)

If you’re prepared to be flexible and broaden your horizons, as shown by the transformative Wheel of Fortune, then a great prize awaits you!

The Three and Queen of Coins show that someone with real influence has noticed you, likes what they see, and is in a position to offer you a promotion, opportunity, role or increased scope of responsibility that will make a big and lasting difference to your security and wealth.

The key is to be ready to accept change, new horizons, a different type of work or role. Are you ready for that? Of course you are, Aries, you were born ready!

Demonstrate your flexibility this week, be overt about your ideals for new landscape and challenges, put yourself in front of people with influence. Lean in just a little bit, and you’ll be met with a wonderful opportunity.

TAURUS (Page of Coins, Temperance, Eight of Cups)

It’s hard to admit defeat isn’t it. The Eight of Cups is like a cosmic bell ringing for you, though, to say that it’s time to give up the ghost, and acknowledge something just hasn’t worked out as you hoped.

It’s okay, it wasn’t right for you anyway, and it served simply as preparation for what’s coming next.

Temperance shows this is a mental, more than a circumstantial, shift. You need to get your head around this loss or “failure”. Reframe it as preparation, as a life lesson, as hard-earned wisdom. You haven’t really lost anything, you’ve only gained more resilience and experience.

The Page of Coins asks you to start anew, building on the knowledge and understanding you now have. Something really good can come of all of this, but it requires a bit of effort to get that ball rolling again.

Onwards and upwards, Taurus, because the future IS bright, and better things ARE coming your way.

GEMINI (Knight of Cups, Ace of Coins, Ten of Coins)

You are a truly gifted creative person, Gemini, and possess a valuable talent for generating ideas “with legs”, things that will sell, products and services that the world wants and needs.

The Knight of Cups sees you having a mega brainwave this week, and you must be prepared to act upon it. Don’t shelve this glowing idea- do something with it.

The Ace of Coins shows you don’t have to have all the answers overnight, this is a slow-burn project, but it DOES need to get started now. Things will evolve steadily, and the ideas will mount up on top of each other, creating a platform for something tangible and significant.

The Ten of Coins shows that there is genuine money to be made here! This idea can sell. This can provide you with security and prosperity down the line, if you keep investing in and building on it.

Truly, whatever you initiate this week has the potential to change your life!

CANCER (Nine of Cups, Eight of Swords, Page of Swords)

Like most of us, sometimes you can be your own worst enemy, sabotaging your dreams, judging your actions negatively, telling yourself you CAN’T do it.

The Eight and Page of Swords sees you in danger of being like that to yourself again this week. Cancer, stop this! You have a heads up now, and you can spot the warning signs of a negative “self-abuse session” coming on, and take steps to distract yourself until it passes by.

The Nine of Cups reveals that this could be a really positive turning point, and provide the chance to prove to yourself that you can control and prevent the horrible “spiral” of catastrophising and self-doubt you can easily slip into, but find it hard to climb out of.

Just avoid it altogether, and you never need go back there. Prove that you can spot and avoid the temptation to criticise and undermine yourself, and feel free of that pressure or dread about being on your own, with your own thoughts.

Start to be more of a best friend, than a worst enemy, to the most important person in your life: YOU.

LEO (Eight of Wands, The High Priestess, Page of Wands)

Deep down, you know you’re going to hear something from someone about something! You can’t put your finger on it exactly, but you can feel an energy building up and getting ready to unleash something your way.

The High Priestess proves your intuition is correct, and that you should follow your instincts and heed your hunches this week, because your gut knows what’s going on long before your brain does.

The Page and Eight of Wands reveals this message will come in fast, from a leftfield source, so be ready and open to communication. Someone has something important to tell you, and it's going to make a difference, in a good way.

Get in touch with people this week, reconnect with those you’ve not spoken to in a while, catch up with loved ones.

You’ll get “warmer” as you close in on the right source, and then you only need to be in their presence, or on the line, and they’ll spill the beans!

VIRGO (Ten of Swords, King of Cups, Queen of Wands)

Although endings often seem like they’re going to be sad to inflict, difficult to see through, and painful to live with- that isn’t always the case.

The Ten of Swords shows you are ready to withdraw your time and energy from something which has increasingly become a pain in the a** recently. Enough’s enough, right? Right.

The King of Cups asks you to be kind, fair and direct in this matter. Get it over and done with, but with the minimal amount of fuss or emotion. If you can “ghost”, do!

The Queen of Wands shows the enormous sense of relief and excitement you’ll feel when this tie is finally cut. It’s been a long time coming, there isn’t any sadness left here, just a desire to cut loose and move on.

Now you’re free, you can plan what will take the place of this obsolete commitment. The sky’s the limit, you can do whatever you choose with the time you’ve taken back for yourself!

LIBRA (King of Coins, Six of Cups, Five of Cups)

Something from your past has gotten your full attention, and you feel the heavy weight of “unfinished business” bearing down on you.

The Five and Six of Cups suggest this is relationship-related, and focusses on something which had a sad ending, but now has a chance to be reinstated or resolved. It’s only going to continue to bug you, so you may as well give in and go back to your past, to sort this out.

The King of Coins asks you to take the lead, and be pragmatic and cautious. Protect your interests, and proceed with wariness. This old ground has changed, and so have you. Don’t open yourself up to more hurt, and you’ve got to tread lightly to rediscover the right spot.

I feel like you could rekindle something that was really important to you. Or, at the very least, get a grip on why it failed and what life lesson that might have which is useful to you now.

Head backwards in order to move forwards, but be careful and guarded. The past is a mysterious place.

SCORPIO (Ten of Cups, Knight of Wands, The Chariot)

A romantic escapade is on the cards for you this week, Scorpio, something adventurous and life-affirming, something significant and powerful. Are you ready?

The Knight of Wands shows this all happens fast ‘n’ furiously. A new affair, or a rekindled old one, flares up in a big way overnight, and it leaves you a little bit breathless (in a really good way).

The Ten of Cups reveals there is genuine passion, and dare I day love, here. This could be something lasting and extremely secure. This could, my friend, be “it”!!!

The Chariot shows this love has the potential to change your life, help you progress, help you make the right moves. Together, with the right person, we can go further faster than we ever could alone, and you (despite your pride and independence) do understand that truth.

It’s just a question of finding the right person isn’t it. Well, maybe this week you realise that you have. Good luck, and don’t let them go. This is important.

SAGITTARIUS (Ten of Wands, Strength, Three of Swords)

You know how it is when a relationship starts to feel like it’s not easy or flowing or natural anymore, and actually every encounter is a massive “effort”? Yep, me too, and it’s horrible isn’t it.

The Three of Swords and Ten of Wands combine to reveal that you’re going to experience that, or already are, in your life with someone who once meant a lot.

It could be a partner, colleague, friend or even family member. Notice the signs, spot the red flags, and just hold fire on doing anything about it.

Strength is a potent tarot card about dealing with issues well. Building up the necessary “shades” of strength to cope with life- courage, confidence, wisdom, compassion, resilience.

See this as an opportunity to do that, to flex your emotional “muscles” and be the “bigger person” here. Don’t make it worse, let it ride a while, and try to understand what has caused the rift, what is the trigger.

You will see more from afar, so let them have space. Things will get better, just give this a bit of time.

CAPRICORN (Queen of Coins, Four of Cups, Page of Cups)

If only hard work was ALL it took to “make it” then you, Capricorn, could make it anywhere- even New York! But it’s not.

The Queen of Coins shows you have your upwards mobility on your mind, and opportunities to progress, get ahead, gain an advantage and rise ARE on the table. But maybe it’s not by your usual M.O. that you impress the right people this time.

The Page of Cups shows that imagination, creativity and out-the-box thinking are required here. It’s not just the effort put in, it’s the quality of thought. And you ARE a creative person, so get those juices flowing.

The Four of Cups is a big clue that what you need, you already have, but don’t value or appreciate, so you don’t really showcase it.

Ask for feedback from those who know you well. What skills and strengths do they see in you? What do they think you underplay? What is your “hidden gem”? Polish it up and show it off this week, Cap, and you can make some great moves.

AQUARIUS (Three of Cups, Justice, King of Swords)

I feel like you’re going to really enjoy the week ahead, Aquarius, because it has lots of your favourite ingredients: spontaneity, debate and discussion, intellectual stimulus, unbridled high-octane fun! Wow, lucky you!

The Three of Cups sees you getting lots of opportunity to “play”; last-minute invites and unforeseen openings to do some cool stuff are on the table, so get ready to say YES.

Justice and the King of Swords shows that some of this will lead to fulfilling intellectual challenges and discussion. Sounds very highbrow, but you relish that kind of thing. You need to sharpen your mental “claws” now and again, and I think you might discover a worthy adversary (dare I say, an attractive one, too!) in the process.

You don’t usually find your romantic interests in bars, online dating agencies or the usual corners of the universe, so be ready to meet someone, someplace fun and unusual, who is fascinating and intriguing, and who makes you want to know more. I think you’re in for a very interesting time, my friend…

PISCES (Queen of Wands, The World, Seven of Wands)

Sometimes we don’t really know what we want until we see someone else doing it, or getting it, and the stab of jealousy in our gut reveals THAT is THE thing we want too. Expect this process to unfold in your life this week, Pisces, with the Seven of Wands.

Competition will make your heart beat faster, and that is no bad thing. Follow those feelings and examine the “prize”.

The Queen of Wands will bring you the necessary energy and persistence to go after this goal, so make sure it’s the right one, and then JFDI!

The World is the tarot’s final card and hints this “prize” is something that is cosmically destined to be in your life- be it a role, activity, lifestyle goal, person or relationship.

It could also be linked to global or national travel, so if a move is on your mind, then follow it up. The World nudges us towards things we are meant to do, and things that will remain a part of our life forever more. This is truly worth it, so be ready to react and pursue your emerging ambition.
