To mark the start of December, one of our psychics has chosen a different tarot card for each star sign to represent how the month could unfold. We believe Tarotscopes are a simple way to create a life of peace, meaning and prosperity, plus it’s an opportunity for people to learn more about the definitions of tarot decks. Below are all of the cards that are chosen for the month of December 2017.
*All cards pictured in this blog post are from the famous Rider-Waite Tarot Card deck.*
ARIES (MARCH 21ST – APRIL 19TH)
King of Wands (upright)
Keywords: Leadership, vision, honour
The emergence of the King of Wands card suggests a month of fire and energy. This month you have the potential to really unleash your leadership skills and set your industry and surroundings alight… in a metaphorical sense, of course.
You’ve never been more influential than you are now, Aries, so make the most of your authoritative skills and steer your career and friendships into the direction you dream of.
Although many people look up to you and admire your strength and determination, there will always be others who disapprove of your go-getting attitude. Pay no attention to these people, Aries. If they spend too much time worrying about what you’re up to, they’re unlikely to accomplish much themselves.
TAURUS (APRIL 20TH- MAY 20TH)
Knight of Cups (upright)
Keywords: romance, charm, imagination
The Knight of Cups is perhaps the softest and most romantic of all the knights in the Arcana Tarot deck. Although he has a sensitive and conscientious side, he’s powerful, brave and heroic too.
This card’s appearance during your reading may suggest that you’re about to meet a person with similar traits to the Knight of Cups. If this person doesn’t come crashing into your life on a horse by the end of the month, perhaps it’s a sign you need to be your own hero rather than seeking support from outside sources.
GEMINI (MAY 21ST- JUNE 20TH)
Ace of Swords (upright)
Keywords: Raw power, clarity, success
Have you been putting a big project on the backburner? Whether this attitude is inspired by the belief it’ll be too much work or a fear that you’ll fail, it’s time to just take the leap of faith and give it a try. The Ace of Swords suggests that you’re about to enter a period of time where success is more possible than ever before. This is your time to triumph, Gemini.
No matter how big a task it is, the sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll finish. Rome wasn’t built in a day and this challenge won’t be either. By chipping away at it gradually, you’ll eventually get to where you want to be.
CANCER (JUNE 21ST- JULY 22ND)
Page of Cups (upright)
Keywords: synchronisation, creativity, messenger
The month ahead is sure to be exciting, creative, and fulfilling. There’s just one caveat – you need to believe in yourself. It’s hard to be creative when you hold yourself back.
Your reluctance to get started and your fear of failure is preventing you from achieving any of your dreams. Failure is a natural part of life and unless you take a few risks, you’ll struggle to move forward.
If you’ve been contemplating starting a new hobby, now’s the time to take the leap and make a commitment.
LEO (JULY 23RD- AUGUST 22ND)
Nine of Swords (upright)
Keywords: Unhappiness, despair, anxiety, nightmares
Yikes! The Nine of Swords has the potential to evoke a range of negative emotions from unhappiness to despair. Before you go running for cover, you may be glad to know that the power is in your hands. Consider this tarot reading a warning and an opportunity to prepare for turbulence ahead.
The Nine of Swords tends to be representative of emotional turmoil rather than physical challenges. Much of the work you need to do to prepare yourself comes from within. If you’re not already familiar with the joys of meditation and self-care, this is the perfect month to get started.
Tune into your intuition and pay close attention to what it has to say. By listening to your inner voice, you’ll go far.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23RD- SEPTEMBER 22ND)
Ten of Wands (upright)
Keywords: burden, responsibility, hard work
Is there something on your mind, Virgo? The emergence of the Ten of Wands could indicate a heavy workload or increase in the number of responsibilities on your plate.
You’re a talented and organised soul, so you should be able to juggle some of these expectations effortlessly, but one or two may crop up that throw everything else off balance. Beat the overwhelm by refusing to bite off more than you can chew.
If there’s ever been a time to practice saying ‘no’ it’s now. Don’t let other people pressure you into carrying more than you can manage.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23RD- OCTOBER 22ND)
Keywords: Control, drive, victory
You’re likely to feel really happy with yourself this month. You’re overwhelmed with pride and a real sense of accomplishment. Although there’s no harm in bathing in the glory for a little while, don’t let your satisfaction go to your head. Be wary of celebrating any achievements before they’re confirmed. There’s always a risk one of your rivals could silently sneak ahead and beat you to your goal.
A chronic misery guts could try to put a dampener on your talents this month, Libra. Don’t let their negativity distract you from the task at hand.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23RD- NOVEMBER 21ST)
Keywords: Balance, moderation, wisdom
Try to maintain some balance in your life this month, Scorpio. With Christmas fast approaching, it’s only natural for things to get a little chaotic, but with the Temperance card making an appearance in your reading, it seems you may benefit from resisting temptation to join in with the madness.
In fact, could this be the year for a relatively low-key Christmas? If you’re in the mood to chill out, don’t feel bad about turning down plans and spending plenty of time in front of the sofa. Parties aren’t an essential part of the festive period, so as long as you don’t neglect those you care about, there’s no harm in taking it easy this Christmas.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22ND- DECEMBER 21ST)
The Star (reversed)
Keywords: loss of faith, worry, lack of enthusiasm
When upright, the Star Tarot often signifies renewed faith and optimism. Often it means that the universe is on your side and no matter how chaotic life may seem and no matter which path you choose to explore, everything will work out exactly as it’s supposed to. However, since the card was reversed during your reading, this could be a sign that obstacles lie ahead. These won’t necessarily be obstacles you can see, they might be hurdles imposed by your own negativity, fear and worry.
Have faith, Sagittarius. Do everything you can to care for yourself and replenish your energy levels. Finding your enthusiasm and zest for life won’t be an overnight thing, but by gradually working on yourself, you’ll be back to your usual self in no time at all.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22ND- JANUARY 19TH)
Six of Cups (upright)
Keywords: Good karma, wisdom, skill
Karma is likely to reward you for something good you did long ago, Capricorn. Whether you helped someone in need or treated someone with respect and kindness despite their own negative attitude towards you, the universe will compensate you in the coming weeks.
Since the Six of Cups is often associated with nostalgia and childhood, perhaps you’ll be flooded with happy memories from your youth or, if you have children in your life, this is the perfect time to observe precious memories being made.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20TH- FEBRUARY 18TH)
The World (upright)
Keywords: Completion, accomplishment, discovery, adventure
One of the most significant journeys of your life is likely to come to an end very soon, Aquarius. It might not be travel related and could be related to your love life, career or spirituality. Although this should be a happy moment for you, your feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction may be overshadowed by the question ‘now what?’
If you’ve devoted a considerable amount of time and energy to this particular journey, these conflicted emotions are only natural, but try to live in the moment and enjoy your achievements rather than worrying about the future. Your next adventure will become clear when the time’s right.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Five of Pentacles (reversed)
Keywords: Recovery, a lack of spirituality
If you’ve been struggling with life recently, the Five of Pentacles reversed suggests the storm will blow over very soon. Not only will the clouds disappear, the sun will emerge and bless you with the confidence and optimism you really deserve.
You’re unlikely to feel particularly spiritual right now, but try to meditate if you can. Surround yourself with your favourite crystals and consider cleansing your home with sage and other transformative herbs. By paying close attention to your chakras and intuition this month, you can recover from recent dramas and enter 2018 feeling positive and refreshed.
