This week’s reading comes from the Linestrider Tarot Mini deck by Siolo Thompson. Using the traditional names and suits of the tarot, this deck uses watercolor art that is unique to each individual card.
All exact card meanings have been recorded from “The Simple Tarot Cheat Sheet” by Angie Green, but are interpreted from experience. Both have been provided for your own interpretation as desired.
Aquarius (Jan. 20—Feb. 18) pulled Death. This week will be a time of turmoil and big decisions. Changes will be made, both big and small, and yet you will survive and make it to the other side. This card represents, “big changes, endings, time to move on, rebirth [and] transformation,” according to the cheat sheet.
Pisces (Feb. 19—March 20) drew the Queen of Swords. Be true to yourself this week and don’t let anyone’s opinions of you change your mind. Expect and give the truth in all situations and you will be rewarded. This card represents, “a self-sufficient person, [and] total honesty” the cheat sheet said.
Aries (March 21—April 19) pulled the Three of Wands. You will be asked to go out of your comfort zone this week and work with people you may not get along with or know very well.

Leo (July 23—Aug. 22) pulled the Fool. Take a deep breath and reach for that opportunity that’s been staring you in the face.

Virgo (Aug. 23—Sept. 22) drew the Devil. You are falling too deeply into your vices and need an intervention.

This card represents “loss, regret, grief [and] feeling abandoned or unloved,” according to the cheat sheet.
Scorpio (Oct. 23—Nov. 21) drew Temperance. This week is a resting point for you. You have worked hard on yourself and your surroundings, so take a moment to reflect on how much you have grown.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22—Dec. 21) pulled the Ten of Pentacles. Focus on the long term, the big picture. Where are you going? Where will you end up if you continue on this path?
