Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Seven of Wands (reversed)

You might feel so overwhelmed at the moment that you're tempted to give up, but sometimes when we are losing or failing, circumstances can change to our favour in the blink of an eye. Keep fighting.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Wheel of Fortune

It seems that good fortune may be coming your way, Taurus, which is a relief if things have been less than positive recently. Opportunities and pleasant surprises may be in store for you this week.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Queen of Pentacles

Getting that work/life balance right can be a huge struggle, but you've got this Gemini. Always adept at multi-tasking, you can sometimes find yourself over-stretching your abilities, but taking a step back will ensure a more productive week.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

The Hierophant (reversed)

You find yourself getting tired of the status quo and are in the mood to shake things up a bit. You're sick of just doing what's expected of you and are feeling a desire for freedom and telling others what you really think. Just don't start arguing for the sake of it.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Eight of Wands (reversed)

Be prepared for some delays in proceedings this week. You can't seem to get the timing right and things may feel like they are going backwards rather than forwards. As frustrated as you may be, try to re-evaluate your goals and come up with a better way to move towards achieving them.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

King of Pentacles

You are taking control of your financial situation, your health and your home life. You are ensuring not only your own security, but that of the people closest to you, and a careful and considered approach will ensure that abundance comes to you.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Three of Swords (reversed)

Negative self-talk is problem for you, Libra, and it will only cause you more pain. It's time to stop re-opening old wounds and inject some optimism in your life. Forgive yourself and those around you and work towards ending whatever's causing you so much pain.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

King of Wands

People are finding themselves drawn to you right now because they find your vision and your leadership inspiring. You know what you want and you are determined to get it, because at this moment anything seems possible.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Five of Cups (reversed)

If anything is preventing you from achieving your goals this week, Sagittarius, it's you. You are losing faith in yourself for reasons that to anyone else would seem trivial, and it's time to move on from these mistakes once and for all.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

The Star (reversed)

There's a distinct lack of hope in your life as you find yourself struggling to trust anyone, including yourself. You are questioning your own decisions and despairing over every little thing that goes wrong. Positive thinking is the way forward.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Five of Pentacles

Times are hard for you, Aquarius, most likely in areas of health or finance. Perhaps you are struggling to get over an illness or you are experiencing financial loss. The important thing is not to ignore help when it's offered; remember you can't fix everything yourself.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Page of Swords (reversed)

You may be full of ideas right now, but there is a lack of action on your part. Perhaps you are being unrealistic or hasty in your assumptions and that's preventing you from moving forward. Don't lose sight of the minutiae.
