Your card for the week: Hermit
It's time to take a break from your everyday life! The Hermit is indicating that you may have a need to withdraw and reflect this week. It could be that you've been immersed in many new experiences or spent much of your time recently socializing.

Recharging your spiritual batteries will help you reemerge with a renewed perspective.
Taurus Tarotscope (April 20 - May 20)
Your card for the week: 10 of Swords

Your card for the week: 8 of Swords

It's easy to get lost in emotions like anger, sadness, fear, or shame, but you're being called to rise above that this week and remain calm in this time of adversity. Don't act on your base instincts. Instead, embrace your more compassionate and forgiving side. This allows you to become a silent warrior who remains in control not only of yourself but the situation as well.

Your card for the week: King of Swords
Your mind is greatest asset this week! You may be facing a major decision or exploring uncharted territory in a specific area of your life. The King of Swords is encouraging you to use logic and intellect to navigate this situation, rather than allowing yourself to get swept up in emotion.

Capricorn Tarotscope (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Your card for the week: 4 of Pentacles
The 4 of Pentacles wants you to focus on your relationship with money this week. Are you saving your money, while also still indulging in life's little luxuries? Or are you hoarding every penny you have because you're afraid you're going to lose everything? Examine what is driving this mindset. Don't allow your feelings around finances to distract you from effectively managing your wealth and setting yourself up for long-term success. You can have fun now, while still having security later.
Aquarius Tarotscope (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your card for the week: 5 of Cups
The 5 of Cups is highlighting that regret is getting the best of you right now. Perhaps you've suffered a setback recently, or it could be that you were disappointed by the outcome of something you had high hopes for. Whatever it was, you're letting yourself get caught in an endless cycle of self-pity and feelings of dejection. This week you're being called to move on from this situation once and for all. Nobody likes failure, but if you get stuck on the things that didn't go right, you leave no room to focus on the things that have gone (or will go) right in your life.
Pisces Tarotscope (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Your card for the week: 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.
