EVERY Sunday, our new resident Tarotscope reader Kerry King will be revealing what surprises, challenges and excitement awaits you in the week ahead.
Kerry has been practising tarot readings for the last 20 years, starting from reading for friends to amassing an international client list.
Using her strong intuition and deep knowledge and understanding of the horoscope, she is able to provide accurate and encouraging predictions for the coming days.
Aries - Out with the old
Spring IS your season: it’s your birthday and the energy in the air, as everything starts to revitalise and grow once more, matches your internal mood.
You’re up for anything this week, and ready to take on a challenge.
The Ace and Eight of Cups combine to suggest it will involve ditching something or someone in order to make room for something new and better.
You’re not sad about this changeover, it feels ‘right’ and the whole situation makes you smile.
The Nine of Wands reassures you that even if things hit a rough patch, you’ll sail through OK.
You might hit a spot this week where you think ‘why on earth did I start all this?’, but things are not as bad as they look.
Keep going and you’ll hop over the glitch quickly.
On the other side it’s all smooth sailing.
So, use your feisty spring-like energy and resolve, this week, to replace something you’ve outgrown in your life with something waaaay better. It’s all worth it.
Taurus - Let yourself rest and recuperate
Nine of Swords and Seven of Cups mean you’ve been overthinking again, letting your imagination run off with you, to a place where everything is amplified, over the top and doomsville. Stop!
There might be a nugget of truth in all this worrying, something which does require your attention - but it has got out of perspective in your mind.
So, talk it out with someone you trust and watch it shrink back to a size you can deal with easily.
Temperance is a powerful major arcana card (a message from the Universe) asking you to step back, relax and chill out this week (aside from talking through this niggling worry).
You need a break and your whole being will benefit from being allowed to rebalance.
Your mind needs to catch up and absorb all of the ‘stuff’ that’s been going on.
Give it this breathing space and you will be left feeling rejuvenated, calm and ready for anything this time next Sunday!
Gemini - Blue-arsed fly!
It’s all kicking off! And it’s great! The Magician dances into your world, bringing his creative energy and determination.
Something you’ve been dreaming of, and grafting for, arrives IRL in a big way.
It’s all coming together, Gemini, and you best be ready because the Two of Coins and Eight of Wands are all about being mega busy.
Many projects require your attention, you’re in demand and things are accelerating - and this is all from the seeds you’ve been busy sowing.
Offers, invites, opportunities are all flooding in and, consequently, you’re in Gemini heaven! Busy might sound like bad news for some, but you thrive on variety and action.
And all of this work is stuff that you have instigated and wanted to happen.
The Eight of Wands hints that news from overseas may be winging in, be prepared to react FAST and say YES.
The world is smaller than you think, and you can go further than you currently believe.
Cancer - You’re ready for a move and some TLC
The Five of Swords arises when we need to cut our losses with something or someone.
It’s over, and hanging on will only prolong that horrible, sinking feeling of loss and regret.
You’re better off being off! However hard it feels, it’s the easier option than staying on and fighting for a hollow victory.
That said, it doesn’t have to be a sad move.
Queen of Coins means you need to put yourself first, and look after your mind, body and wellbeing with some much-needed TLC and self-care this week, so that’s an open invite to indulge yourself!
Knight of Cups warns against listening to smooth words and empty promises; be wary of letting anyone talk you round from your new position.
Stick to your guns. Remember how low this situation has made you feel in the past, and that you deserve better.
Extract yourself from a losing spot, and then spend the week boosting your spirits with good company, good times and good vibes. You’ll feel SO much better, very soon.
Leo - Tackle the injustices which bother you
Justice is in town and asking you to right a wrong in your own life.
It may be something others have done, it may even be YOU who did it, it may be self-inflicted.
This week, ignite the process of acknowledging responsibility and seeking a way forwards which is, overall, the best outcome for everyone.
Karma is on your side, so don’t rock the balance by being stroppy/bossy/vengeful (i.e. typical Leo!).
The King of Coins and Queen of Swords are around to also lend you their resilience, independence and dignity.
You won’t shy away from speaking some home truths this week, but not to inflict damage, simply to demonstrate what has gone wrong here. People will listen.
You’ve got gravitas on your side, so use it.
The outcome will swing in your favour, as long as you play ‘nice’, and you’ll be rewarded, remunerated and rejuvenated by having successfully tackled this issue.
You can move on, feeling good about things again.
Virgo - Make a new plan
Seven of Coins swings into view when we’ve hit a bit of a pause, a time out, a plateau where we sit to review what’s gone on and, importantly, what next.
It’s often the case that we formulate daring new plans and schemes, which deviate wildly from our current trajectory, at this stage.
And the powerful combination of two major arcana cards (i.e. messages from the Universe) - The Chariot and The Hermit - indicate this is a significant opportunity to turn in a new direction.
The Chariot indicates travel, journeys, moves and a forging onwards using our will and determination. The Hermit is about solo efforts, the things we do because an internal voice tells us to.
It also reminds us to be serious about our life.
We’re not here for long, so make it count.
Don’t let the days, weeks and months pass by without purpose or progress.
Be honest about where you’re heading and take time to think about whether that is the destination you truly want to work towards. If not… now’s the time for a new plan.
Libra - Seize a second chance
Judgment is a potent card indicating the Universe is ready to give you a second chance at something.
You’re older, wiser and more appreciative this time around, ready to make it work.
Importantly, you’re more comfortable in your own skin and with who you uniquely are; the desire to compare yourself to others (unfavourably) is waning. THIS is your time to shine.
Queen of Wands and Knight of Cups imply this new chapter will invigorate your whole personality, bringing a fresh energy and sparkle which others will notice.
A spring in your step, a big smile, a warm and friendly greeting for everyone you come across.
Journeys and travel are strongly indicated, or creative projects which intrigue and absorb your sizeable intellect.
There’ll be adventure, fun and new places/people/activities to explore and enjoy. Don’t let this second chance pass you buy - seize it with both hands.
Scorpio - Don’t get in your own way
Nine of Wands crops up when we’re looking down the barrel of an ‘issue’ (big sigh). One in an area of life we’re already wearied by. ‘Not this again!’ we yell.
‘Yes’, the Universe says, ‘THIS again’.
Why? Because you’re SO close to overcoming it. One tiny little extra effort and it’s all smooth sailing hereafter. So, get to it, get stuck in, commit to resolving this pickle.
The Devil and the Page of Swords offer two pieces of advice:
i) Don’t hang around on the sidelines waiting for it to sort itself out, or for a miracle to sweep in from above and obliterate everyone involved.
This ain’t gonna happen. YOU need to get on the pitch and play.
ii) Resist the path of least resistance.
Your old bad habits will resurface and try to persuade you to play badly, cruelly or not at all.
Do what feels hard or challenging… and you’ll win quicker.
Please don’t fret about all this.
It’s nearly done with and by the end of this week you’ll know it.
Sagittarius - A dream come true is on the horizon
There’s something you’ve long been after (a person, a role, a home, a trip… could be anything, but it IS heartfelt) - the Nine of Cups is a wish-come-true card so, this week, there’s an opportunity to get closer to it.
Three of Coins hints that this will come about because others recognise this desire in you, and believe you deserve it.
There’s an element of hard work and reward here, so don’t hang back or not make it obvious what you want.
Be overt, make an effort, show the world that you care about this and you’re working for it. You’re about to get a leg up, in some way, perhaps from an unexpected source.
Don’t knock it, wherever it comes from, but grab the opportunity to progress gratefully.
The Knight of Cups asks you to be extra gracious, charming and appreciative of those who acknowledge your quest or provide assistance this week.
Build your karma points for later down the line when you might need them and their aide again.
This ‘dream’ is coming into view on your horizon - believe in it.
Capricorn - All work and no play
All of the Capricorns I know (and love) have a ‘thing’ about relaxing.
It’s like the Holy Grail to them, a mythical concept they respect but can’t quite grasp, and they’ll often say ‘right, I’m just going to do nothing now, I’m going to relax’.
I then observe from a distance as they stretch out on the sofa… and then, two minutes later start hoovering, making calls, pacing round the house, putting a wash on, tossing and turning etc.
It’s tough isn’t it? And, despite another decision ‘to definitely relax a bit more’, you haven’t been.
All the Coins are in town to agree that, yes, there IS a lot to do and your priorities of earning money and advancing your position won’t happen by themselves.
But the Ten of Wands is also here to advise that you can’t run on empty, your mind and body need to refuel, refresh and restore themselves or they’ll be no good to you.
So, this week, make as much effort to schedule regular (albeit probably short) ‘rest stops’.
Switch everything off, settle down, indulge in something you find peaceful.
The Universe will only start nudging you harder, with unwelcome sniffles and niggles, if you don’t give yourself the time to recuperate.
Aquarius - Let your imagination plan the next stage
The Seven of Cups is the card of the imagination, indicating yours is running amok and bringing you multiple creative options and ideas about what you could, or should, do next.
And The Hermit hints this is a strictly solo task.
Others might wonder what’s going on with you, where you’ve disappeared to, why you’re so quiet… but it’s ALL going on, inside.
The only warning to heed, in this process, is to resist getting a bit lost in these delightful daydreams. Nothing gets done without you physically and mentally engaging to make it happen IRL.
Judgment suggests this is as much about closing down a previous chapter or activity as starting anew.
The Universe is readying to bring you a second chance, one which you appreciate all the more right now because you’re older, wiser and prepared to make the most of it.
By all means, take your time to imagine and visualise what success looks like… but set yourself a deadline to bring your ideas out of fantasyland and make them happen in your reality.
Don’t lose this chance.
Pisces - Step off your usual path
Four of Coins and The Devil hint that you’ve fallen into a trap of guarding yourself and your resources very closely.
You cling to a status quo which you’re not even happy with but you think ‘better the devil you know…’. Well, not really.
The Devil comes up when we’re compelled to resist our usual path of least resistance and break a habit or pattern which has held us in stasis for a long time.
An urge to do things differently will arise in you this week - don’t ignore or suppress it but follow its energy to a new set of actions which will swiftly lead you onwards.
Ace of Coins is a lovely, positive card about sowing seeds now which you can reap later down the line, with great reward and satisfaction.
t’s probably only a small thing you’re doing or investing in, but it will grow and bloom into something wonderful.
Take a step off your typical path, and trust that this small change will offer payback later on.
