weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading
Love, Zodiac

We have good news, and we have bad news.

The wheel of fortune goes up and down. And the three mythical fates decide when to spool the thread of destiny and when to snip it off.

So if your love life has gone through these cycles of extreme good fortune and then devastating disasters, then read on. Because in your weekly horoscopes and tarot card reading for January 15 to 21, 2018, I will reveal what destiny has in store for your love life, based on your zodiac sign.

Let's dive in to see the answer. 

ARIES: Reversed 4 of Swords

Aries, reversals don’t always mean bad things. But unfortunately for you, this week’s tarot card for you carries with it a foreboding message. More a warning than a message, in fact.

The reversed 4 of Swords is a card of distress, no peace, and no rest. And since the suit of Swords represents the mind, this week you will find no mental peace in your love relationships.

It could be because of lack of communication or it could be because of misunderstandings. The exact reason has not been revealed here. Only that your mind will be tested.

TAURUS: Reversed 8 of Pentacles

You like stability and peace in your relationships, Taurus. But this week your relationship will sustain a heavy upheaval. And not just upheaval of any kind, but the kind that demolishes the foundation of your relationship, or tears down everything you and your partner built so painstakingly.

Just remember: upheavals are a part of life. We cannot avoid them. The only thing in our power is the choice to curl up and die, or get back up and build again.

GEMINI: Reversed 7 of Pentacles

Apple trees don’t give apples until it is apple season, Gemini. And in life, we do not find the one until it is time. So be patient. I know it is difficult for you. In fact, the reversed 7 of Pentacles tells me that you covet the one you have chosen quite desperately. But you must be patient, nevertheless.

You cannot force something to blossom and grow until it has been nurtured adequately. So stop fidgeting for now and go back to tending to this budding relationship. Believe me, when it’s time you will have your apple.

CANCER: Reversed 7 of Swords

This week’s tarot card for you, Cancer, has a message you may not want to hear. But it’s a message I will relay, nevertheless. Someone is taking advantage of you. They have entranced you so deeply that you have left yourself unguarded, allowing them to steal from you what they always had their eye on.

It could be that they are an emotional vampire, stealing your vitality under the guise of love. Or they could be after some material possession of yours. Only you will know what you have left unprotected. So beware.

LEO: 2 of Swords

Leo, this week in your love life, you will find yourself in a position where you will have to make a choice: To take your relationship to the next level or let it remain where it currently is.

And it will be a very difficult decision because your mind will be so muddied by emotions that you will find yourself stuck at the crossroad, unable to go left or right. When that happens, take your time and listen to your heart. The right decision is always the more courageous decision.

VIRGO: King of Swords

Virgo, this week you will meet someone whose sharp intellect, incisive judgment, and wisdom will bring out awe in you. Whether young or old physically, this person will feel like an old soul who has experienced much in life and who has emerged stronger because of them.

When that happens, just remember that everyone has their demons. Some just are better at hiding theirs than others. And that every King needs a Queen by his side to balance him out.

LIBRA: Page of Swords

Relationships don’t just survive on passion. It needs the partners to nurture each other's dreams as well. And that’s what you will have to learn to do this week, Libra.

The Page of Swords is neither a saint or a monster. She is both. A human with her dark side and her angelic side. And it’s her intellect that helps her choose which side she will play for.

So choose to be benevolent and kind this week. Choose to nurture yours and your partner's dreams and ideas bravely. After all, if your ideas and dreams are dead, you will never be able to manifest them in reality.

SCORPIO: 5 of Cups

Your sorrow knows no bounds, Scorpio. Because what you loved with all your heart has chosen to leave you behind. And now you are stuck remembering all the bittersweet moments of passion merging and the ease with which they seemed to have moved on.

But what you are failing to see in your sadness is the fact that all your cups have not been spilled. And that’s the message of the 5 of Cups for you.

Life is not always rosy. But neither is it always thorns. So look at your situation with care and you will see that you are not in as bad a situation as you are making it out to be. And that you still have something to live for.

SAGITTARIUS: 6 of Pentacles

You may feel like you are stuck in a quagmire with no opportunities in a mile-long radius, Sagittarius, but this week, all that will change. The 6 of Pentacles is a card of philanthropy. Of a more successful person coming to the aid of someone less fortunate (but with potential) and helping them out of their tough circumstances. And that’s what is in store for your love life this week.

This week you will meet someone, a teacher, a guide, or an acquaintance, who will give you opportunities to make your love life flourish. Just make sure you do not refuse the kindness. Because the one who can receive with open arms is the open showered with abundance.

CAPRICORN: Ace of Pentacles

A seed of a stable relationship will be planted this week in your love life, Capricorn. Perhaps your beloved will finally pop the question. Or maybe the two of you will decide to move in together and live as a married couple without the legal bindings.

Just remember that a seed is just a seed. Not a tree. And if not tended to, its potential will shrivel up and die.

AQUARIUS: 4 of Cups

Aquarius, this week in your love life you will find yourself withdrawn from your relationship and consumed by yourself. You will be sad, yet not sad. Empty on the inside, yet not empty. And because of your state of withdrawn petulance, you will fail to see the golden opportunity knocking on your doorway.

So beware of this and jolt yourself out of this reverie. Lest you miss out on something that would have changed your life for the better.

PISCES: 3 of Pentacles

I asked you to wait for the right time before you strike, Pisces. And this week’s card tells me you have done exactly that. So, well done!

And because you were patient, this week you will find yourself in a relationship where your partner is also your friend, working with you to achieve a goal together.
