This week’s shining event is the New Moon in Pisces, immediately kicking off the week on the 20th.
Dreamy and imaginative, this event can assist you with connecting deeply to your intuition, opening up the heart, and setting intentions that are real and authentic to who you are at an unconscious, spiritual level.
Those that are especially sensitive to the whims of the planets, Moon, and stars may find that the whole week itself seems to be enveloped in those very themes.
However, to really see how it may manifest for you, we’ve consulted the Tarot and narrowed the insights down to zodiac signs for a more personal touch.
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for February 20 – 26, 2023
9 of Pentacles
This week is all about abundance and enjoying yourself for Aries.
The 9 of Pentacles forecasts sunny skies — mostly in the realm of finances, abundance, and material comfort and prosperity.
It won’t be about literal riches for all Aries friends, but more so the attitude of enjoying what you have in the current moment. If you’re unsure where to start, begin this week with a gratitude list, centering your mindset on everything you’re grateful for.
This will help you get into gear to focus on what’s already right in front of you — or fruit ripe for the picking, so to speak!
7 of Wands (Reversed)
Bold, strong, and fighting against all odds, this week highlights Taurus‘ strength of will.
However, as the usually assertive 7 of Wands is flipped upside-down, you may find that your efforts are particularly strained this week. You see the uphill battle but aren’t finding it easy actually to take the hike.
Or, for some, the “battle” is nontraditional. Perhaps it’s less to do with the terrain outside of you and more to do with your mind, heart, and internal willpower.
Whatever the case, now is the time to think outside the box and prepare to use a little elbow grease — even if it’s in a different way.
8 of Pentacles
Gemini, this week is productive and down-to-earth.
Seems simple enough, right? The 8 of Pentacles points you toward wherever you may have an existing checklist of tasks and responsibilities.
Now is not necessarily about starting something new but getting productive with what already exists. This is great for improving existing skills and expanding upon plans you’ve already set into motion.
Of course, you do have to put in the work in order to make this energy worthwhile!
Ace of Wands (Reversed)
Cancer is having difficulties when it comes to initiating new things this week.
With the Ace of Wands reversed, it may seem like every fire you start is quickly put out. You want to make headway with new ideas, sparks of passion, and adventure, but nothing is going your way right now.
The trick is not to force what isn’t there. This suit, rooted in the element of Fire, isn’t meant to be forced but forged.
Be brave, be bold, and do your best — but know when to walk away if something isn’t clicking into place.
10 of Cups (Reversed)
Leo may notice that long-term fulfillment and contentment seem particularly distant this week.
The 10 of Cups reversed pushes you away from your big-picture dreams and imagined picture of what life is “supposed” to look like. You may find yourself thinking big but not exactly in a way that is productive or optimistic.
While it’s okay to experience disappointment or discontent, it’s important that you hold space for these emotions while not wallowing in them to the point of no return.
The feelings will come and go, but your real dreams — the things that are true to you — are never as far as they seem.
8 of Wands (Reversed)
Virgo, it’s essential that you hit the brakes this week.
The 8 of Wands reversed warns that you may be tempted to rush into your plans or ideas this week and may be prone to miscommunications and missteps.
Remember that bigger is not always necessarily better. You’re known for your ability to dive into the details of things and pick up the nuances others easily miss.
Don’t lose sight of that part of you just because the world around you seems to be moving quickly.

Libra is flourishing in creative and abundant energy this week.
Resting in the Venus-ruled card (much like you yourself, Libra), The Empress, you are particularly blessed in the realm of attraction, abundance, beauty, and creativity this week.
This is especially fortuitous, given the effects of the New Moon already in motion!
You’ll want to spend some time setting intentions, perhaps immersing yourself in a creative skill or hobby, and/or meditating to hone your intuition.
The Fool (Reversed)
Scorpio, this week, you’ll want to look carefully before you make your next steps.
The Fool can usually be a delightful sight, but its experimental whimsy and charm are a little more frustrating than it is delightful when flipped to its reversed position.
In other words, this week, prepare to feel like a beginner, even in your own field of expertise. And be ready to learn, even if it can be a humbling experience to step down from the leadership position you feel you may have earned.
Sagittarius may see sparks fly — this week is all about your skills, talents, and entrepreneurial attitude.
The Magician brings the fertile ground for creativity, but ultimately you are the one who must create the sparks. Everything good this week will come through your own initiative and creativity.
It’s especially recommended to experiment a little and consider how one area of life or skill may actually overlap with another. Love and career, mind and body, heart and soul — all of these things can be utilized to your advantage at once when you plan holistically.
Capricorn, life may suddenly appear to be a little strange, esoteric, and whimsical this week.
The Moon asks that you follow along with your intuition, after all. It speaks in riddles and asks profound questions; along the way, you may find it difficult to discern any logical answers.
Basically, you may be in your own thoughts and feelings a lot this week, and it may feel like you’re running in circles trying to figure yourself out.
However, the beauty of this energy is in the journey rather than the outcome. Trust that The Moon can carry you to the right destination even if you’re walking there a little blind.
King of Swords (Reversed)
Aquarius is struggling to wield the sword of confidence and leadership this week.
The King of Swords reversed emphasizes your intellect, but specifically how you communicate those thoughts and ideas and what they’re being utilized for.
It may feel like you’re trying to get your ideas across, but no one is listening like you have to shout twice as loud to be heard half as much. However, true King energy isn’t about being loud or even right — it’s about being clear and helpful.
If you can’t help others this week, try to help others by finding your peace… and perhaps saving your voice.
Ace of Swords (Reversed)
Pisces now is actually not the time to seize every opportunity.
With the Ace of Swords reversed on the table, you may find it quite challenging to get the ball rolling. New opportunities suddenly seem scarce, and breakthroughs in your ideas or curiosities are not coming with ease.
Trying to force this card into its (more ideal) upright position is tempting, but often a period of blockages and stagnancy isn’t solved by “pushing through.”
Patience, quiet, and solitude are some keys to success this week.
Connecting With the Moon & Tarot
Now your Tarotscope has laid out the scene, and you know what the landscape of the week is likely to look like.
With this in mind, you’re now even readier to face this New Moon, plan accordingly, and set the intentions that are right for you.
And hey, here’s a comforting thought!
Even though the journey may often feel very individual, remember that your whole zodiac family is also experiencing something somewhat similar to you, even if the cards manifest in slightly different ways.
