Did you really think 2024 wouldn’t start off with a bang? This year already has the makings of being a year to remember.

On the 1st, Mercury in Sagittarius will end its retrograde, bringing some clarity back into the fold but ultimately also asking you to pull back and abstain from rash decisions if necessary — let this one settle in.

Mars, planet of ambitions, drive, and war, will also move into the steady, strong sign of Capricorn on the 4th. It’s time for planning, goal-setting, and finding confidence in your ability to expand upon and practically develop your ideas.

There’s your beginning-of-2024 astrological briefing — next up: Tarot.

Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for January 1 – 7, 2024


Ace of Pentacles

Aries has always been known to be a little bit of a firestarting entrepreneur.

This week, it’s essential that you hold on tight to those special ideas and independent pursuits you’ve been wanting to carry through.

The Ace of Pentacles hints that opportunity is knocking on your door, especially in a very concrete, tangible way — think new projects, job opportunities, essential interviews or connections, etc.

Be ready to identify and seize those opportunities when they arise, Aries.


The Hermit (Reversed)

This set of transits may seriously shake Taurus’ confidence.

More specifically, we’re looking at confidence in your own ideas, expertise, and wisdom with The Hermit reversed.

You may be second-guessing yourself more often this week, uncertain of what the “right choices” look like and shaky in the ideal courses of action that you should take.

Don’t rush to any major decisions just yet. Let this funky cloud over your mind pass first (just like how all weather eventually changes).


10 of Swords (Reversed)

Gemini may not be taking the turn of a new leaf all too well during this New Year’s week.

The 10 of Swords reversed points to trouble in moving forward and making peace with the past. You’ve been struggling with this a lot lately, and it hasn’t been easy to just “pick yourself up and move on” — that advice is a lot easier said than done, after all.

Be kind, patient, and forgiving with yourself during this difficult time. While moving toward healing and gradual progress is important, there’s no need to punish yourself for having mixed or bitter feelings about moving forward.


3 of Cups (Reversed)

Cancer, the answers this week will likely not be found in other people.

The 3 of Cups reversed hints at trouble in paradise, stirring up disconnect and discomfort in your personal relationships with others — romantic, platonic, and beyond.

This doesn’t necessarily mean overt arguments or disagreements will pop up, but it does make it much harder to get anything fun or productive going.

With that in mind, ample “me time” will likely do you a whole lot of good this week.


7 of Pentacles

Leo, are you ready to put pen to paper?

The 7 of Pentacles is a card of tangible, productive planning and contemplation. While now isn’t the time for actual momentum and action, consider this the planning period that has to happen beforehand.

This is a time for setting intentions, especially in areas like career, work, finances, and the home.

Pentacles is a suit of stability, legacy, and leaving your mark on the earth — it’s time to figure out what that’ll look like for you.


6 of Pentacles

Virgo is generally known for their giving, attentive spirit.

This week, the 6 of Pentacles spotlights these very qualities about you, Virgo. It’s time to begin investing in the people around you instead of just personal opportunities or ventures. You may find that these things are more closely related than they appear on the surface.

Regardless of the personal gains, however, it’s just a good idea in general to take notice of who might need some help right now.

You don’t necessarily have to give away anything too big — remember that time, effort, and holding space for others can be valuable resources, too.


The Hierophant (Reversed)

Libra is ready to take the world by storm and do things their own way.

The Hierophant is usually a stand-in for tradition, order, and conventional structures. Lately, you’re just not feeling this vibe.

Especially spiritually, you may be looking to rethink how you operate and conduct your practices. You may be rethinking your daily routines and the roles you fill in your daily life.

Take this as an opportunity to spotlight your own unique qualities, free-thinking, and new ideas.


8 of Swords (Reversed)

Scorpio, you have some chains that need to be shaken off.

A lot of them, however, are not physical. The 8 of Swords reversed points to you needing to release mental restrictions or perceptions that are holding you back — like the idea that you’re not enough, unable to make progress, etc.

This week involves taking those first steps to unpack and eventually removing these very chains.

What have you been telling yourself… and which thoughts are likely not so true?


10 of Pentacles

Sagittarius worked with the 10 of Cups last week and continues the streak of long-term thinking this week.

The 10 of Pentacles indicates that after closely examining what fulfills you emotionally and intuitively, you’re looking toward the practical applications of what this all means.

In work, career, home, and your overall future plans and ideal legacy to leave behind… you’re onto something big.

This is a week of powerful intention-setting and looking toward the future.


6 of Swords

Capricorn, let’s get a move on.

The 6 of Swords describes your current state as one of momentum, change, and transition.

You may not know exactly where you’re going, but you’re extremely certain that you have nothing left for you in what you just left behind. There isn’t anything waiting for you in the past, but there are infinite possibilities in the future.

An uncomfortable limbo period awaits you this week, but you’ll have to trust that it’s bridging you to a brighter future.


7 of Swords (Reversed)

Aquarius, now is not the time to take shortcuts or brave it all alone.

The 7 of Swords is a tricky card of mischief and taking the easy way out, usually assured by the idea that no one is really on your side, and it’s easier to just skate through the mess by yourself.

In truth, life is not often full of every enemy being out to get you — this kind of strict independence and negative thinking won’t bring you any closer to happiness.

This card is reversed; it’s time to let these ideas go, let others into your life, and hear what they have to say.


The Lovers

Pisces’ week is full of love, divinity, and a multitude of choices.

The Lovers can certainly hint at a lovely time for romance and divine connection, but it, more specifically, is a card of divine choices.

You have various options at your disposal — things to say, information to not say, time to spend with others, and time to spend with yourself. To say yes or no, to go or not go, to commit or to release.

Choose wisely, Pisces, and remember to hear the truth of your intuition (and not just the fluctuating whims of what feels good at the moment).

Your Curated Resource List for This Week

The New Year is a busy time for us all, but the Tarot has a wonderful way of showing us what to prioritize during those busy times.

Now that you have a greater understanding of what’s happening at a personal level, we’ll help you zoom back out to the bigger picture so that you know what’s to come for us all:
