Your weekly tarot horoscope for October 2 to 8 – and end of Mercury retrograde

This week we experience two powerful transits – firstly, Mercury turns direct again after the last few weeks’ retrograde (breathe a sigh of relief), and it’s also a Full Moon in the sign of Aries (a powerful motivator).

It’s time to get going again, to forge ahead, to get back to those hopes and dreams and well-laid plans and make progress.

Let the tarot guide you to where you should you invest your precious energy this week.

Ahead you’ll find your star sign’s tarot horoscope for the next seven days, with a tarot card pulled and its meaning explained.

Aries

March 21 to April 20

Tarot card for Aries for this week: Seven of Swords

Meaning: You are so good-hearted and open that sometimes you can be naïve about other people and their intentions or influence.

You have, however, spotted someone whose shade and negativity upset you.

The Seven of Swords shows it’s time to surgically, carefully, quietly cut them out of your life.

Do this for you. It’s for the best in the long run. No need for conflict or drama, just silently withdraw and move along.

Taurus

April 21 to May 21

Tarot card for Taurus for this week: Two of Cups

Meaning: Your love life is the place to invest the best of you this week.

The Two of Cups is a beautiful romance card, indicating Cupid is sprinkling fairy dust over your relationships.

If you’re single, look for a love-at-first-sight Water sign (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) and if you’re attached then arrange a magical Date Night, a few surprises, a grand gesture and some thoughtful compliments for your partner.

Gemini

May 22 to June 21

Tarot card for Gemini for this week: The Lovers

Meaning: The Lovers is your sign’s tarot card, representing your duality, flexibility, openness, and, dare I say, fickleness.

You do change your mind a lot, although it’s basically because you adapt so fast to new information.

Take time, this week, to figure out where you stand on an issue that you have flip flopped on recently.

Come to a conclusion. Get the facts. Ponder. Ask questions. And make up your mind.

Cancer

June 22 to July 23

Tarot card for Cancer for this week: King of Swords

Meaning: You are ready and willing to get your head into your long-term future plans.

The life you wish to live can only happen by design. You need to focus on a goal, and plan how you will achieve it, then schedule those milestones and get going.

The King of Swords will bring the necessary logic, inspiration, shrewdness, and insight to make a robust and motivating plan of attack.

What do you dream of doing, being or having? Now is where that starts to turn into reality.

Leo

July 24 to August 23

Tarot card for Leo for this week: The Emperor

Meaning: Leo, be big and bold and beautiful this week! The Emperor grants you total permission to move into your natural role: leader.

Set the example, make the decisions, show them how it’s done, have utter confidence in yourself and your abilities.

Leading is what you were born to do. You possess a natural regality and authority, use it this week in an area that lacks direction or progress.

You will enjoy and revel in every minute!

Virgo

August 24 to September 23

Tarot card for Virgo for this week: The World

Meaning: Travel, location, holidays, trips, journeys, transport. The World brings this theme front and centre for you this week.

Whether it’s moving home, leaving the country, buying a new vehicle, planning 2023 holidays, you’re looking out into the world and planning how you can see more of it.

You are ruled by Mercury, the gods’ winged messenger, so you do possess a natural wanderlust. It’s time to activate it!

Libra

September 24 to October 23

Tarot card for Libra for this week: Eight of Cups

Meaning: It’s time to get over a setback you endured recently and see the silver lining (because there is major one).

The Eight of Cups reveals that this didn’t work out for a good reason: it wasn’t right for you and better opportunities (or people) lie ahead.

So, take a breath, and look ahead and realise you’re doing okay, maybe you even dodged a bullet.

Turn your gaze to what’s next and plan something exciting and fun to remind you life is a blast.

Scorpio

October 24 to November 22

Tarot card for Scorpio for this week: Death

Meaning: Death is your sign’s tarot card and a very powerful one too. It means transformation.

You are ready to totally overhaul your world, from top to toe. Something powerful has shifted and it has triggered a desire to transform from within.

Major makeovers, career changes, location moves, or relationship shifts lie ahead – all of your own making.

You are in control here. Time to make this happen. From now to December will be a transformative phase.

Sagittarius

November 23 to December 21

Tarot card for Sagittarius for this week: Four of Swords

Meaning: Although it’s all systems go, you actually need to invest that surge of energy in working out how you better balance your life and lifestyle to make room for deep rest and relaxation.

The Four of Swords sees you running on empty too often. You burn the candle at both ends, but this is not sustainable.

Figure out how you can balance your schedule, control your commitments, keep time aside for nothing and make sure you are re-fueling and rejuvenating regularly.

Capricorn

December 22 to January 21

Tarot card for Capricorn for this week: Eight of Coins

Meaning: Put your back into your biggest challenge and push ahead because you are much closer to a breakthrough than you realise and, on the other side, lie rewards and recognition.

The Eight of Coins is a ‘don’t give up’ card, so pick the project or situation you’re closest to ditching and give it another go. You might surprise yourself.

This is worth fighting for, this is worth persisting with, even if you’re weary. A change is coming.

Aquarius

January 22 to February 19

Tarot card for Aquarius for this week: Eight of Wands

Meaning: Put all of your limitless energies and intelligence into nurturing your network this week, because it’s who vs what you know that will get you ahead right now.

The Eight of Wands shows you need to update, introduce, apply, reunite, rekindle, connect and reach out.

Talk, talk, talk. Make a list of people to get in touch with and tackle it every day, and then follow up with the leads or ideas they give you.

Who knows where this could all lead?

Pisces

February 20 to March 20

Tarot card for Pisces for this week: The Hanged Man

Meaning: A project that has stalled and driven you mad for ages is about to get going again – thank goodness.

The Hanged Man reveals you will receive a brainwave this week that unlocks the issue and lets you make progress again.

Keep an open mind. Things might go ahead in a new guise or with a different process, you might need to shift or sacrifice something. But that’s okay, because you are ready to change your approach anyway.

Enjoy getting going on something important and worthwhile again.
