Before you could blink, emotionally-intense Cancer season is already passing us by this week as we head into the big and bold territory of Leo.
This seasonal zodiac shift will occur this week on the 22nd, taking us into the realm of Fire, creativity, and owning a bit more self-love in our lives (as we could all surely use).
Before that, Mercury, too, will be entering the Leo season on the 19th, making this week a potent time for embracing a bit of our inner dramatic or showstopper.
As always, we’ll be seeing what this all means for you and your sign on a personal level before we enter the madness. Let’s see what your weekly Tarotscope has to say!

With The Emperor on your side, you’re feeling yourself, Aries.
You’ve been on a bit of a leadership kick lately, opening up doors for yourself and taking control over your life. This week, you’re continuing the trend.
But as The Emperor, you take on more responsibility. You might notice others pay attention to your voice more readily, and that’s something to take seriously too.
Enjoy it, and just make sure to think through your words and actions!
10 of Wands
Taurus, you may be biting off more than you can chew.
The 10 of Wands is a difficult sight for the eyes. You may have taken your “can-do” reliable bull attitude one step too far and said “yes” to just about every responsibility, goal, and task on the table.
Sometimes, the brave thing to do is to step down and/or admit you need some help. “Powering through” is not always the most effective choice for yourself or others.
For Taurus, being reliable and thorough this week may mean passing the baton.
9 of Wands (Reversed)
It’s time to stop dawdling — Gemini’s week is about stepping off the defense.
In other words, the 9 of Wands reversed indicates you’re not interested in being cautious, biting your tongue, or tip-toeing around what needs to be done anymore. You may feel like enough is enough, and it’s time to pursue wholeheartedly what you know is right for you.
And even if mistakes are made along the way, who said perfection is the goal, right?

Knight of Pentacles
Cancer occupied the steady Page of Pentacles’ energy last week and got bumped up a notch to the Knight for this one!
With the Knight of Pentacles, you’re taking the information and ideas you gathered from last week into this week and actually putting everything into motion now.
This week is all about slow and steady, intentional movements and taking care to enjoy the process instead of fixating on the outcome.
If you’re open to moving at this more grounded, albeit less exciting pace, this week can be an extremely productive one for you, Cancer.
9 of Swords
The mind is not Leo’s friend this week.
In fact, it may feel like your head is working against you. The 9 of Swords points the finger at your own anxieties and self-doubts, those recurring nightmares and nagging worries, and so on and so forth.
This week, the drama is inside of you, not outside. This means paying extra attention to yourself is key.
It may be tempting to close the door to that inner dialogue, but listening is sometimes the way to logic, compromise, and compassion — even, yes, extended to yourself.
7 of Cups
Got a lot on your mind, Virgo?
Actually, the 7 of Cups hints that you might have a lot in your heart or have tried accessing your intuition so much that you’ve hit information overload. Indecision and illusions abound, indeed.
Here’s the trick: sometimes, picking anything is better than picking the “right thing.” It’s in your Virgo nature to lean into perfectionism on occasion, and this week the cards are calling you on it.
There’s sometimes no such thing as a “correct way.” Just keep that in mind!
7 of Pentacles (Reversed)
It’s time for Libra to get their ducks in a row — or so you think.
The 7 of Pentacles is a card of planning and contemplation. Reversed, we sense that you may be tempted to take this a little too far in true “see all sides” Libra fashion.
You’ve had a tumultuous past couple of weeks, so it’s no wonder that you want to get things in order before proceeding now. However, you also need to know when to put the pen and paper down and let yourself rest, and/or go with the flow.
This week, balance is key.
Scorpio, new beginnings are on the horizon.
You’re still riding the wave of the Universe’s whimsy and blessings with The Star gracing your reading for the week. Healing, rejuvenation, and refilling your emotional and spiritual cup are in order.
Optimism and aligning yourself with the blessings you want to receive are important to taking advantage of these boons. If you’re capable of putting that classic Scorpion skepticism aside, for now, you may just catch a glimpse of a little miracle.

Page of Wands
Finally, you’re aligning with spark and excitement again, Sagittarius!
The Page of Wands bursts onto the scene with a kind of zest for life and adventure that the wild archer knows oh-so-well. It’s hard not to see this as a beacon of light, optimism, and positivity for you as it aligns so well with your personality and core values, Sagittarius.
Embracing this should be easy, in theory. It might be difficult given that your surroundings and the weeks leading up to this haven’t exactly been so peachy, but that’s just your cue to shine even brighter, of course.
Take the reins and let yourself enjoy this, wild archer. Adventure now belongs in your hands once again!
10 of Cups (Reversed)
Capricorn, this week, your eyes are fixated on what you lack.
The 10 of Cups reversed may indicate a bit of a pity party. When long-term ideas and goals don’t pan out, the wise goat may not be sure what to do with themselves, as this is a big part of what makes you… you.
That Capricorn ability to get stuff done in the long haul and aim for that complete, fulfilling feeling — it’s a great thing! But sometimes, things aren’t meant to go according to plan fully, and it’s not always in your control.
Feel what you need to feel, Capricorn. And then next week, be ready to begin again.
10 of Swords (Reversed)
Aquarius, the worst of it is over, and you’re ready to move on.
The 10 of Swords is a tumultuous ending. You’ve suffered your fair share of disappointment, loss, and defeat, and it’s not an easy pill to swallow.
Reversed, Aquarius is ready to pick themselves up and move forward now. No more dwelling in the past.
Just remember to be kind to yourself during this week of transition and renewal.
3 of Swords (Reversed)
No more heartbreak for Pisces — or at least that’s what you’re aiming for.
Last week, you already made some moves to move away from old burdens and baggage. This week, you’re focused on patching up any old wounds that you may have retained from holding onto the deadweight.
The 3 of Swords reversed shows that you’re ready to heal by any means possible, which is, of course, a great thing. Just remember that healing isn’t linear, and to be kind to yourself along the way even when the going gets tough.

How to Own This Week’s Leo Energy
The beautiful thing about Leo energy is that it knows a deeply important truth: Success and self-care are as unique as we are.
We have to be willing to look into ourselves and be honest about who we are and what we want in order to actually step up to the plate and take it.
This means that while we’re all wrestling with Leo energy on a collective level, you still may notice that your journey to owning success and the spotlight looks different than everyone else’s.
This is a good thing and one of the beautiful aspects of astrology. And finally, that’s why using your unique Tarotscope to your advantage is the first step to knowing where to start!
