Our columnist, Sarah Potter, provides this season’s tarot readings for the signs.

Eight of Cups Reversed
(May 21 to June 20)

Face your confusion, Gemini. Have you been feeling dizzy over what move to make next? Is your current situation something worth fighting for? Do you stay or do you go? As you make your decision—and yes, you do need to make a choice—listen to your heart and tune out the opinions of others. Only you know exactly what you truly desire.

Ace of Cups
(June 21 to July 22)

Embrace your personal connections, Cancer! Something new is brewing in the relationship department. Is it a new crush? A blossoming friendship? Or, perhaps, you and your sweetheart are getting closer as you ascend to the next level of depth in your communication skills? Revel in the feelings of love all around you, both platonic and romantic. Remember that you are loved, and that is a wonderful feeling.

Six of Swords Reversed
(July 23 to Aug. 22)

Don’t be afraid of change, Leo. What is holding you back from moving forward? Is it the discomfort that accompanies something new and different? The pain you are feeling is simply growth, and without that, we get stagnant and feel stuck. Lean into the energy of change and expand beyond your comfort zone. The displeasure will ease as you get used to your new surroundings.

Seven of Cups Reversed
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Focus on what’s important to you, Virgo. A myriad of options and opportunities lay before you! This should be thrilling, but instead, you might feel overwhelmed. It’s important to remember that there is no “wrong” choice. Whatever decision you make will be the best one for you, given the information you have right now. Whatever you decide to do next, you must not let this time pass you by.

7 Gourds 111a8

(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Invest in the development of your skills, Libra. If you’ve been yearning for a new job or a promotion, now is the time to invest in yourself! Is there a class or workshop that has caught your eye? Sign yourself up! Drive and desire will take you far,  but upping your expertise will take you over the edge to exactly where you want to be professionally.

Five of Wands
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Stop comparing yourself to others, Scorpio! It’s totally natural to see what others are doing and wish you had the same opportunities. However, life is not a competition, and this is your reminder that we are each progressing at our own pace. Keep your eyes on your own prize, mind your business, and keep going after what you want. Because you will get there—in your own due time.

Eight of Pentacles Reversed
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Let go of your desire for perfection, Sagittarius. You’ve been working hard on accomplishing your goals and sticking to your plans, but your focus has become a little too narrow. What if something unexpected turns up? Instead of looking at an obstacle as a detrimental challenge, embrace this opportunity as a moment to bring in some much-needed fresh energy. Remember that sometimes, the most inspiring moments aren’t planned!

8 Coins 9336d

Knight of Cups
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Make your dreams a reality, Capricorn! Have you been wanting to take your hobby or side hustle to the next level? Now is an aligned time to make this happen and explore your passions with your full heart. Do your research, create a business plan, and most importantly, take yourself seriously so others will, too! Why should doing what you love remain on the back burner?

The Star Reversed
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Prioritize your self-care routine, Aquarius. You’ve been pushing yourself to the limit lately, which is why you’re so utterly exhausted! It’s time to take a break to recharge and focus on taking better care of yourself. Indulge in activities that get you back to your center: meditate every morning, indulge in a luxurious bath, participate in a yoga class. Anything, really, that helps you just chill the F out.

XVII 17 Star ae015

The Lovers
(Feb 19. to March 20)

Be mindful of your choices, Pisces. Where are you devoting your energy? If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your decision-making skills, remember to step back and survey your options. Before committing to something new, be sure it aligns with your morals and values before traveling too far down the road. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to disentangle from something that does not feel quite right.

VI 6 Lovers d4e93

Ace of Wands
(Mar. 21 to Apr. 19)

Let the inspiration flow, Aries! Your creative spark has been ignited, and now it’s time to follow your passion to wherever it leads you. Get completely wrapped up in the creation of something new and thrilling! Paint your masterpiece, write your manifesto, learn an instrument, experiment in the kitchen—whatever it is that really gets your imagination going. Don’t hold yourself back! Let your creative juices run wildly.

(Apr. 20 to May 20)

Embrace new opportunities coming your way, Taurus. Have you been feeling restless or bored lately? Do not worry, my dear. Something new and exciting is headed your way! Now is an aligned time to say yes to situations you might have previously turned down in the past. See where the unexpected paths lead you, as you never know what (or who!) you may encounter along the way.
