Hello, my dears, and welcome back to the Weekly Tarotscope, this time for January 9th through the 15th. There are no sign changes this week, but I promise you won’t be bored!
Mars in Gemini regains forward motion once again this week as its Retrograde period ends. This could significantly simplify your conversations and general communication with others. You could be more likely to speak your mind now since Mars feels freer to be assertive in forward motion.
Mercury in Retrograde in the sign of Capricorn forms a trine to Uranus in Taurus, which can bring a wealth of innovative ideas and solutions to problems. Mercury’s backward motion in the sign of Capricorn could squash the idea from taking off before it gets going unless you’re willing to take a bet on yourself.
Mars in a trine to Venus feels sweeter when Mars is in forward motion. These two relationship planets are in normally cerebral air signs, which tells me that communication and exchanging ideas are more important to the health and vibrancy of your partnership than ever.
The Sun forms a sextile to Neptune this week which brings a sensitivity to most people, especially in the house where the Sun is. We tend to be more forgiving under transits like these since Neptune plays on our compassion while the Sun seeks to light up the lives of others.
Venus in a Square to Uranus can cause rifts to form in partnerships over the amount of freedom and individuality that should be exhibited in the relationship. Something about the nature of the relationship could make it difficult for one partner to take some personal space. A sense of stagnancy can lead to unknowingly stirring the pot just to bring some life back to the partnership.
So, a solid mix of various energies is on its way to us all.
With this general overview in mind, let’s explore what the Tarot can add to the conversation to make it more clear to you how you might experience these upcoming energies.
Find your Sun or Rising sign below to find the card that best captures the essence of the upcoming lessons of the week.

Weekly Tarotscope for Aries: The Chariot
Aries, the Chariot is linked to the sign of Cancer, which is the sign that relates to your emotional center and inner security. This card is linked to the ever-shifting Moon, which tells me that change is on its way for you, and it may be coming from an internal source.
This could be the week that you put your foot down on your own behavior. You may have felt at war with yourself for a long time, but now through repeat exposure, you’ve learned that you actually have been fighting against a deep well of inner strength that you possess.
It’s easier to fight reality than to accept it sometimes, but this week that old song and dance isn’t for you. You realize that the excuses you’ve made for your own inertia aren’t convincing to you anymore. Mars’ forward motion is VERY apparent to me, since this card represents you getting back on track, just like your ruling planet has.
Weekly Tarotscope for Taurus: Four of Wands
Taurus, the Four of Wands tells me that you’re seeking play and fun, and you’ll soon get it. This is a time of celebration as something pleasant comes your way. This week, you’re being rewarded for all the hard work that you’ve done.
The Four of Wands symbolizes achievement and blessings. This card focuses heavily on the home and everything in it, so perhaps you have moved into a new home that suits your needs, or you’re somehow improving the quality of your living space.
Just look around you and you’ll see that there is a lot to be grateful for. Sure, you’ve been blessed by the Universe, but you are only getting these blessings because you’ve put in the effort. Now you’re being met halfway.
Weekly Tarotscope for Gemini: Queen of Swords
Gemini, something tells me that you’re the very person that the Queen of Swords is referring to. As in, embodying her qualities this week is what is needed to best handle the upcoming days. And it seems that you will handle it with the grace and intelligence of the Queen of Swords.
The Queen of Swords has her eyes open. Her judgment is clear and she is free of bias. She allows herself to see the truth of a situation. She represents purity because the truth is pure in the sense that it is free from lies and abstractions.
Staying honest with yourself and others is important. But the Queen receives insights of stunning clarity as well. She’d never doubt the importance or relevance of her thoughts, and neither should you. The Mercury trine to Uranus could yield genius insights to you, but only if your mind is unclouded and unbiased enough to see clearly.
Weekly Tarotscope for Cancer: The Lovers
Cancer, the Lovers indicate collaboration and teamwork, and yes, often romance. The Lovers are telling you to focus on the people in life that you’re so close to that your relationship with them is almost like a part of who you are.
The Lovers signifies the best-case scenario of what can happen when two parties decide to use their energy to mutually benefit the other. In relationships, this is an unmatched sign of good luck and authentic connection.
Cancer, opening your heart to the concerns of others this week will find you in an energetic exchange that ends up benefiting you too. Ask what would make the life of another better or easier, and then do that thing for the person just because their happiness is important to you. You’ll be fostering a lasting partnership.
Weekly Tarotscope for Leo: Nine of Pentacles
Leo, the Nine of Pentacles tells me that you’ve been working very hard lately. This card does not surprise me as planets begin to move from Capricorn to Aquarius. For you, this shift signals a sigh of relief as you are finally able to relax and come out of crisis mode.
The Nine of Pentacles is asking you to give yourself a reward for how hard life has been lately. You may have had to put in extra hours at work or had a heavy load placed on your shoulders that became your problem.
Take some time and appreciate how much you’ve had to extend yourself. Partaking in some self-care will remind you that your efforts deserve to be appreciated by others but mostly by yourself.
Weekly Tarotscope for Virgo: Justice
Virgo, the Justice card represents neutrality, clear-headedness, and fairness. Justice is not good or bad, just fair. Things that you’ve done in the past could be placed in front of Justice, which can be great or not so great, depending on your track record.
Virgo, Justice is guided by the North Star, representing morality and the ‘right’ thing. You’re being asked to take a page out of Justice’s book and stay neutral and unaffected, placing your trust in the fact that Karma will work it all out.
Justice tells me that your ultimate goal this week should be to stay in tune with all aspects of a situation before making your decision. This means honoring what the facts say as well as what your instincts and emotional reactions are telling you.
Weekly Tarotscope for Libra: Knight of Pentacles
Libra, your planetary ruler in your house of romance this week could be the reason for the Knight of Pentacles this week. Libra, your naturally creative spirit could be seeking to manifest in the world around you this upcoming week.
Venus and Mars are in a trine with one another this week which throws your creative potential into overdrive. You might be inspired by the beauty in your mind, but the Knight of Pentacles is challenging you to do something about it.
It’s nice to have dreams of all the things we could make and do, but it doesn’t mean much in the real world unless we put in the effort. Libra, your lesson this week is to put physical energy and labor towards the things that you most desire and admire to make them something of worth.
Weekly Tarotscope for Scorpio: The Moon
Scorpio, the Moon card is asking you to rely on all your senses, even the ones that you can’t explain with concrete facts. Your intuition is a sense as well.
This card can be a signal of illusion being thrown your way. You can find the root of the matter, but the issue will only become clear to you once you’ve had to fumble around through the weeds for a while.
It’s smart to question those who offer things that are too good to be true to you this week. If you feel like you’re being sold to then it’s probably because you are. Trust your intuition even if others would say it makes no sense. But also, ensure it’s intuition you’re hearing and not your own mind telling you what to believe.
Weekly Tarotscope for Sagittarius: Knight of Cups
Sagittarius, the Knight of Cups is a great sign if you’ve been seeking a romantic connection. I believe that Mars moving forward once more in your house of partnership along with Jupiter in your house of romance has primed you for tender-hearted love.
You might feel as if your partnership is back on track if it has been a bit rocky in the last few months. The Mars Retrograde was really cramping your ability to collaborate.
The Knight of Cups is a solid sign that you are back on top of things when it comes to your romantic life which can only assist the growth of your partnership.
Weekly Tarotscope for Capricorn: Page of Swords
Capricorn, with Mercury still in Retrograde within your own sign, it makes sense that the issue of communication in the suit of Swords is popping up for you.
The Page of Swords is a quick-moving guy who comes to you with a message or some news that is relevant to you. Paying attention to what’s said to and around you will pay off since you may find the information to be uniquely relevant to you.
The Page of Swords is mentally sharp and engaged in the exchange of information. Keeping an eye on who knows what while ensuring that your own ducks are in a row wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Weekly Tarotscope for Aquarius: Ace of Wands
Aquarius, Venus in your own sign in a trine to Mars seems to be a motivating force for you. Venus in your own sign is nice enough, but Mars adds an element of speed and a rush of excitement to all the Venus-related things in your life.
This can include romance and partnerships, of course. The Ace of Wands is asking you to use the Martian energy which supports you now to take initiative and to reach out to those who you know are good for your growth and well-being.
The Ace of Wands takes action and thinks later, being one of the most reliably intuitive cards. Follow your sense of passion to find out what it is you should be focusing on with this drive and energy.
Weekly Tarotscope for Pisces: Knight of Swords
Pisces, the Knight of Swords informs me that you’re on a mission of some kind that you’re mentally compelled to pursue. The Knight of Swords is practical but extremely quick on his feet. Embodying these traits can assist your way through the upcoming week.
The Knight of Swords surges forward, but not because he hasn’t thought his actions through. Instead, this card tells me that you’re being asked to think very quickly, but also accurately.
You’ll have to rely on your skill and logic in the context of this week. When you become aware that something needs doing, doing it as soon as possible will be beneficial. This includes having critical conversations with others.
