Your Zodiac Sign's Love Tarot Card Horoscope For The Week Of January 1-7, 2018

weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading
Love, Zodiac

Romantic dreams do come true.

Happy New Year, YourTango readers! This week starts off with several highly charged planetary aspects in the skies that are going to have everyone thinking about love.

There’s a lot going on up there right now: Venus, the planet of gentle compassion and romance, is generating some very positive energy with Mars, the planet of lusty passions. Both of them are working together with Neptune, which rules our dreams and imagination.

The Sun and the Moon also join the dance, helping to strike a balance between the rational conscious mind and the intuitive subconscious. Add big old Jupiter into this mix, which intensifies everything it touches, and you’ve got a recipe for some wild romantic adventures.

Just about all of these aspects are positive, but even so, with all that activity something is bound to get mixed up and go overboard.

Self-control and a dash of realism are important. Allow yourself to enjoy those awesome daydreams and fantasies, but remember that real life doesn’t always measure up. Sometimes the universe delivers exactly what you wanted on a silver platter, but more often, you have to work with what you’ve got and just see how close to your dreams you can make it.

Either way, your weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading for January 1 to 7, 2018 will present a lot of opportunities to focus on your love life. Be sure to check your horoscopes for hints about how you can best work with this wonderful romantic energy.

Here’s what the cards have to say for each of the zodiac signs.

ARIES: The Moon

Speaking of the Moon, it looks like your subconscious is going to be poking at you this week, Aries. You may feel a little out of your element here, but try to take a few moments now and then to pay attention to your intuition and write down your dreams.

Consult your gut before you jump into anything new or take any major risks. A little bit of introspective caution will go a long way toward keeping things on the pleasant side.

Hang on, Taurus — this isn’t necessarily a bad card. You might even call it good news. Remember your tarot card message from last week? Here comes that change it was talking about.

The Death card doesn’t mean that someone is going to die. It means that you have a chance to transform your whole life. Maybe it’s a solution to those problems you’ve been wrestling with lately, or maybe someone new is about to enter your life and turn everything around.

I know you’re not fond of big surprises like this, but it can make a positive difference, if you let it.

GEMINI: The Emperor

The laws of the universe are going to be in control this week, and there’s nothing you can do about it, Gemini. You can’t fight physics! Don’t look for loopholes, and don’t try to fool yourself (or anyone else) into thinking that you can have it both ways.

It’s time to accept reality and face the truth for exactly what it is. I promise, get this out of the way, and all that uncomfortable pressure will dissipate.

CANCER: The Chariot

What do you really want, Cancer? Get out there and make it happen.

This is the card of the true will — not just what other people think you want, or coming up with something that makes you sound good. Only the true desire that’s buried in your heart can control the Chariot. Once you figure out what this is and admit it, you’ll be unstoppable.

LEO: Temperance

Get comfortable on your throne, Leo; it’s time to play the waiting game. This card is an exercise in patience and paying attention.

Deep contemplation and careful observation will show you some very interesting truths. You’ll be glad you took a step back to just watch this situation develop. You’ll have a much clearer view of things and a better idea of how to apply your energy so that it will do you the most good.

VIRGO: Seven of Cups

So many possibilities! You can’t have it all, Virgo, but there’s nothing wrong with dreaming about the impossible. Let yourself bask in the fantasies for a little while, and just this once, give yourself permission to enjoy it completely without looking for something to go wrong.

Your rational side will kick in soon enough, and then you can evaluate your options and figure out what’s actually possible. You might surprise yourself.

LIBRA: Justice

This is the best card in the deck for you, Libra. It represents the sense of balance and peace that you’re always working so hard to achieve.

It looks like, at least for now, everything is turning out for the best. Wrongs will be righted. Truths come to light. People get the karmic rewards they deserve. And at some point, you’ll probably be able to say, “I told you so.”

SCORPIO: The High Priestess

You’re standing at a crossroad this week, Scorpio, and you’ve got a big choice to make. There’s no going back once your decision is final. You’ve got a little time to think about it, but don’t wait too long — it really doesn’t have to be as difficult as you think.

In fact, deep down, you already know which choice is right for you. If you procrastinate about this for too long, your subconscious will give you a firm reminder.

SAGITTARIUS: Eight of Wands

You’ve had a lot going on lately, but thank goodness, all that activity is about to wind down. Projects are nearing completion. This is a good week for tying up loose ends and making sure everything is finalized.

Don’t let yourself get distracted at the last minute, Sagittarius; just stay on track for a little while longer. (Maybe ask Virgo for some help.) It’ll feel so good to have all these obligations out of the way, and then... freedom!

CAPRICORN: Six of Cups

Feeling nostalgic lately, Capricorn? This is a good time to drag out those old scrapbooks, laugh about all the crazy stuff you used to do and remember the dreams you used to have. You may be feeling like you’re not getting anywhere lately, but just look at how far you’ve come from the old days.

With this in mind, make yourself some tea and meditate on your plans for the future. A look behind should help you see your way ahead more clearly.

AQUARIUS: Two of Wands

You’ve had some great ideas lately, Aquarius. It’s time to pick one and get started. A new friendship could blossom into something more this week, and even though you’ve got a lot of life experience and wisdom under your belt already, they’re bringing something completely new to your life. Fascinating!

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself thinking about what a long-term future with this person might be like.

PISCES: Three of Swords

Pisces, stop. Just stop. Someone is going to get hurt, and it’s probably going to be you.

I know that your ruling planet, Neptune, is doing all kinds of great things with Mars and Venus this week, but don’t let yourself get carried away by your daydreams. Not again. Not this time. Reality can be wonderful too, and this week you need to focus on what’s actually happening.
