This week, we have two keywords to describe the energy ahead: expand and reflect.
Additionally, Mercury in Capricorn will enter retrograde on the 13th — be ready to review and reflect upon your old plans and goals (and tighten up any loose ends that you may have left behind in those departments).
That’s the mood of the moment astrologically… but what about through the eyes of the Tarot?
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for December 11th – 17th, 2023
Queen of Wands
Aries is in their element this week.
This week, you’re embracing a more outgoing, leadership-oriented, and independent version of yourself. This is a strong omen for speaking your mind, having important conversations, and pursuing independent projects.
What paths will you choose to forge?
Queen of Cups
Emotional depth and maturity are the name of the game for Taurus right now.
Thanks to the open-hearted presence of the Queen of Cups, you’re presently here to tune in with your emotions, intuition, and spiritual realm in a very powerful way right now.
This is also a strong card for creativity, particularly any Taurus drawn to the arts.
Overall, it’s a great time to embrace a softer (but still very focused and devoted) side of yourself.
Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)
Gemini, getting grounded is hard but not impossible.
Although the Queen of Pentacles is usually a welcomed sight for the realm of career, abundance, and the home, the reversal of this card can make you feel all out of sorts in these same areas.
You may desperately want to exert control here but find this difficult to actually execute. Instead, your movements may feel clumsy or prone to mistakes more easily.
We all have “off” moments, Gemini. Don’t force yourself to have it all together when there is no need for perfect order and clarity right now. Deep breaths, and patiently allow it to pass.
3 of Cups (Reversed)
Cancer may find trouble is brewing in their social circles and connections with loved ones.
Whether it’s a close friend, a group of peers, coworkers, or even your family, we all have moments of disconnect and miscommunication from time to time.
With the 3 of Cups reversed, now is one of those times for you. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll experience outright conflict or grand fights (it’s actually more likely that it’ll feel like a subtle dig, passive aggression, or uncomfortable silence).
But be prepared to feel out of the loop right now in general, and don’t force a connection where there isn’t one. Like all funks, this, too, shall pass.
3 of Wands
Leo has a variety of fun options to choose from… if you’re willing to play a little waiting game.
The 3 of Wands hints that your metaphorical ships are coming back to port. Some of your ideas stuck the landing, and there is still potential to hold onto when it comes to your future ventures and plans.
However, not all is coming to fruition with complete clarity just yet — right now, it’s more so that feeling that something good is on the way.
Trust that feeling, and don’t do anything reckless to jump ahead where it isn’t necessary.
7 of Wands (Reversed)
Virgo, the saying “pick and choose your battles” could not possibly be more relevant for your life right now.
The 7 of Wands is a noble battle indeed, an independent striving for what you feel to be important against all odds. You’ve exerted plenty of effort along this road.
However, the reversal of this card notes that you may officially be overextending yourself.
This is not a time to play hero — it’s a time to know when you need rest and when you’re finally hitting your limits.
8 of Wands
Libra, this week might zip by just as quickly as it started. Hold on tight!
The 8 of Wands points to speedy communication, speedy events, and speedy opportunities. The momentum of this week is strong and powerful, so showing up with as much zest and passion for life as possible is important for matching the energy of the moment.
While this is a positive omen overall, don’t get too frustrated if you’re finding it hard to process everything all at once.
Processing is not the goal of the moment — instead, let yourself just experience the ride as it comes first.
3 of Pentacles
Scorpio, success may be found in the hands of others this week.
By this, we mean: know when to patch the torch. The 3 of Pentacles hints that you may make strong advancements in work, career, skills, and finances if you show up as an eager team player for those around you.
Listen intently to what others have to say and be receptive to contributing where you can.
Others’ wins may just as easily translate to being your wins in a roundabout domino effect, after all. You never know where a good deed (or just a listening ear) may take you.
5 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Sagittarius, it may be time to move on… for good, now.
The 5 of Pentacles reversed shows some reluctance to move on from previous losses or failures.
You may feel like everything is crumbling before you, and it can be easy to dwell on everything that’s missing in your life (especially when it comes to finances and career goals).
While it’s important to feel what you need to feel, it’s also just as important to pick yourself up when you need to in order to move on to something new. You may be surprised with what’s waiting for you on the other side.
Capricorn is facing a whirlwind of energy this week. Buckle in!
The Tower is always… an interesting sight, to say the least. When we see this card, we prepare ourselves for the worst: destruction, utter chaos, and complete 180’s of what we were expecting for our futures. The truth is that The Tower is not always as obviously destructive as it may seem on the surface.
The point is that we cannot possibly be prepared for what is to come.
This week, The Tower may be an uncomfortable conversation, a radical idea that changes your perspective on a value you hold, or, yes, a moment of weakness that brings you to your knees.
But no matter what, this card will always clear away the rubble that has been causing stagnation, making room for a clearer path to be walked upon.
Ace of Wands (Reversed)
Aquarius may not have a lot up their sleeve right now, and that’s okay.
The Ace of Wands reversed indicates that you’re probably desperately trying to pull out new ideas from your hat but are coming up short.
You may instead feel incredibly burnt out or even like the ideas that you are coming across… are no good at all. This may chip away at your self-confidence in getting anything done, which in itself can be a viscous energy that prevents even more progress.
This slump can be remedied with rest, patience, and self-forgiveness. Repeat some affirmations, take a few naps, and spend quality time with loved ones. This medicine can do wonders for the creative spirit.
Pisces, what magical ideas will you conjure up this week?
With The Magician at your aid, it’s go-time for entrepreneurial ideas, embracing new opportunities, and communicating what’s on your mind (whether through the arts or in conversation).
All in all, this is an extraordinarily productive card that can help you get just about anything done.
Of course, it all starts with you and the wave of your wand — so where would you like to initiate the magic first?
