Aries Tarot Horoscope

Your card for the week: The Moon

The Moon

Don't let fear could get the best of you! The Moon indicates that lingering hang-ups from a past experience could creep up this week, flooding you with memories you'd just as soon forget. This could be something you tried to stuff down into your subconscious, hoping it would work itself out over time. Instead of attempting to ignore the issue, choose to bring it out of the shadows and heal yourself. It might be painful at first, but keep in mind that the burden you've been carrying has also hurt you over time.

Taurus Tarot Horoscope

Your card for the week: The Devil

The Devil

The line between pleasure and pain is razor thin! The Devil represents your habits, temptations, and vices -- all the things that activate your shadow side and lead you away from your true self. You're being called to examine whether short-term gratification is creating a long-term problem. This week, consider your actions: Are you truly in control? Are these behavior patterns healthy? What are the benefits besides temporary satisfaction? If you've been going overboard, now is the time to pull back before you veer too far off course.

Gemini Tarot Horoscope

Your card for the week: Death

Death

Don't be intimidated by this card! The Death card is one of the more commonly misunderstood cards in the Tarot. It doesn't represent a physical death; rather, it's about transformation of the self and letting go of the things that are no longer serving us. What have you been holding onto that you need to let go of? Ending this chapter of your life could pave the way for something far greater down the road. So, this week, you're being encouraged to move on from whatever it is that's been holding you back from the future you deserve.

Cancer Tarot Horoscope

Your card for the week: Temperance

Temperance

Temperance is a card of balance and moderation. Receiving this card signifies a need to keep a more go-with-the-flow attitude, practicing patience and adaptability as best you can. Perhaps you've been resisting a change in your life or letting a stressful situation get the best of you. If this is the case, change your approach this week. Allow things to slide off your back instead of meeting them with resistance. By finding your inner balance, you set yourself up to find your outer balance once again.

Leo Tarot Horoscope

Your card for the week: The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man

Receiving The Hanged Man could indicate a major shift in perspective is coming this week. Alternately, it may mean that some sort of sacrifice is needed. The process The Hanged Man wants you to undergo in the days ahead may feel uncomfortable, but it can lead you to a much-needed release of negative past patterns that are no longer serving you. What have you been holding onto and how have these beliefs held you back? This week you're being encouraged to let go of them once and for all.

Your card for the week: 8 of Pentacles

The Emperor

This week, the 8 of Pentacles is encouraging you to put your creative talents to good use and work hard at them. The more you create and hone your craft, the more others will take notice of what you're doing -- and the more inspired you will become. By putting yourself out there, you give others the opportunity to recognize your abilities and talents, and this can serve as the motivation needed to continue to produce things you're really proud of. So, get out there and become the master of your domain!

Your card for the week: 2 of Cups

2 of Cups

The 2 of Cups recognizes that partnership is going to be center stage for you this week. This could be someone you're romantically linked to, or this could be a professional ally. Even though the relationship you have with this person is still in the early stages, it has the potential to grow into something that will benefit the both of you long-term. Spend time cultivating this partnership, while also rejoicing in the fact that your combined forces and mutual admiration will take you both far.

Scorpio Tarot Horoscope

Your card for the week: The Empress

The Empress

Receiving The Empress card signals that this week is about receiving the gifts that are all around you. It's easy to get caught up in the frenzied pace of everyday life, but now you're being urged to stop, slow down, and connect with your senses. Eat a nice meal. Stop and smell the flowers. Breathe in fresh forest air. By grounding yourself in this way, you open yourself up to seeing, smelling, hearing, touching, tasting, and truly experiencing all of life's greatest rewards.

Your card for the week: The Lovers

The Lovers

You could be facing a major decision this week! This situation may be presenting a moral dilemma for you, and The Lovers card represents needing to becoming clearer on what your values and beliefs are before determining how to proceed. Do you feel compelled to go a certain direction based on fears or feelings of guilt? Don't let those things become motivating factors. Instead, try to understand that every action has a reaction and decisions such as these are never easy. Stay true to yourself -- you can't go wrong.
