Happy birthday Cancerians! Tarot reader and teacher Nia True has a special three card reading for those of you celebrating your solar return under the star sign of Cancer.
And there are one card readings for all the other signs of the zodiac.
Cancer – III of Wands, Knight of Swords, V of Cups
Happy solar return, Cancer. Here is your three card reading for the month ahead. There is so much coming together, and becoming tangible for you right now. Things that might have been dreams, or felt unreachable, not that long ago, are taking real, solid shape. Exciting times!
Go careful though - slow and steady wins this race. Don’t feel that you need to rush things, or hurry towards what you think is the finish line. And don’t confuse courage with recklessness – fools rush in where angels fear to tread for a reason.
Lastly, if things don’t go entirely to plan, remember that you have the option to see your glass as half full, or half empty. The choice is yours.
Leo – King of Swords
Honesty and integrity are called for, this week, Leo. It’s all about looking at the situation objectively, seeing things as they are, and responding – not reacting – accordingly. Clarity of communication matters too - say what you see, say what you think, say what you think needs to happen next – but do it with kindness.
Virgo – Ace of Swords
To achieve what you want this week, you’ll need to approach things with a new mindset, Virgo. From this, all sorts of new beginnings may be possible. If an idea feels outlandish, or too big, don’t dismiss it immediately – maybe it isn’t, or perhaps there is a smaller, more accessible way to start out.
Libra – X of Wands
The thing about saying yes to all of the lovely things (easily done, after so much time without so many of them, in recent times), is that eventually, you end up with too much going on. Too much to hold, too much to do. To avoid burnout, make some discerning choices about what to put down, Libra.
Scorpio – Queen of Wands
This week is all about owning and indulging your creative impulses, Scorpio. Doing those things you know you’re good at, where you can find a state of flow and mastery. Failing that, working on something that you really want to be that good at. Either way, make sure it’s something you enjoy.
Sagittarius – King of Cups
This week calls for emotional maturity, stepping up and taking responsibility, Sagittarius. You have the tools and experience required, just be careful not to be so focused on others, and their needs and feelings, that you forget about your own. It may be a tricky balancing act, but you’ve got this.
Capricorn – Strength
Take heart, Capricorn, and step forward bravely. This week, you have all you need, within yourself, to take up the challenges presented to you. It’s not about putting on armour and going into battle, more about being true to yourself, and your values, and doing what you believe to be right, gracefully and without fuss.
Aquarius – III of Swords
If things have been feeling difficult, now’s the time to acknowledge that, and to be honest about your hurts. Grieve what needs to be grieved, Aquarius, then release it. The test is in knowing how to face your sadness truthfully, and then, when to let it pass on, so that you can more forwards.
Pisces – VIII of Cups
There comes a time when you know that you need to move on. Pack up childish things, put down the comfort blanket and strike out, Pisces. Wherever you are hunkering down in your comfort zone, that’s where you’re not growing. This isn’t about taking silly risks, it’s just about allowing some challenge in.
Aries – Knight of Wands
Should you wish to take advantage of it, there is plenty of energy available for finally doing that thing you’ve been wanting to do for ages, but may have been feeling a little scared of, Aries. Take the leap, try it out, experiment, this week – you never know, it might be the beginning of something…
Taurus – IV of Cups
Yes, it’s good to take time to focus on what’s in front of you, but if you do that to the exclusion of what’s around you, you’re likely to miss out, Taurus. Even more important to look up and about, if what’s on your plate isn’t feeling like your jam – what would like to be different, and where might you look?
Gemini – The Star
If it’s been feeling like a hard slog, Gemini, things may be about to change. Hope, and a shift in the atmosphere is in the air this week. If you can, take some time to connect with what you really want, and then start moving towards it – the Star is here to guide you, so have faith.
