Aquarius Season Tarotscopes are here, with a tarot card for each zodiac sign highlighting what your self-care and growth opportunities are from January 19 – Feb 18, 2021. Read for your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for the full picture.
Aquarius is the most futuristic sign of the zodiac. As an air sign, it’s all about big ideas and visions. Brains are buzzing with activity.
Now’s the time to track all your intuitive pings and big picture ideas. It’s also a time to focus on the collective and how you can serve your community. But remember: Anything that we’re hoping to help with and share with the world must come from a place of our own healing and compassion toward ourselves.
Aquarius is associated with The Star card in tarot, which is about healing to self to heal the world — because what we do has reverberations. Here’s an Aquarius Season Tarot Spread you can dive deeper with on your own.
What’s a Tarotscope?
It’s like a horoscope, but instead of interpreting planetary movements, I pull a card for each zodiac sign and share the themes and questions coming up at this time.
You can read the cards for your Sun, Rising, and Moon signs — in fact, I recommend it. Think of the Sun card as a central theme, your Rising card as the way you’re being called to move, and the Moon card as your emotional landscape.
If you don’t know your Sun (that’s the sign you’d typically read your horoscope for), Moon, and Rising/Ascendant signs, get your birth time and city, if possible, and plug it in over here.
In case you missed it, you can check out your Capricorn Season Tarotscope here.
Here are your cards for Aquaris Season:
Aries – 5 of Wands
How can you use the conflicts coming up this month as a catalyst for motivation and growth? Keep in mind, the conflicts I’m talking about don’t have to be external — we’ve got plenty going on within. Whether it’s feeling unbalanced in your work-life situation or just feeling plain overwhelmed by it all, this card is kind of like the messiest point in the creative process. When there’s too many moving parts to really see how it will all come together.
If the conflict is with another, it may feel like a big clash or aggressive tension. Either way, when you find the stress or intensity creeping up this month, find ways to step back, ground down and refocus on the bigger picture. Come back to your strengths and make your intentions clear.
Taurus – The Star
A time of deep healing. After you’ve gone through so much, it’s time to clear and cleanse and care for yourself. This card will stick with us until we give it the attention it deserves. Be patient with your progress. Healing is often the main goal of a lot of New Age practices. It’s thought of as the end point. The achievement. But healing is a long non-linear process of its own. Even in the areas we know we need the most healing, we resist it, because the reality of doing the healing feels too daunting.
This is an opportunity to gently approach it with grace and clarity. This is where we learn to empathize with ourselves. When we’re able to show ourselves compassion, it radiates outward to the rest of the world. By doing this for yourself, it has a ripple effect to everyone you interact with, and in turn, who they spread that compassion to. Take this time to show yourself kindness by creating boundaries around negative influences and getting all the rest and hydration you can manage.
Gemini – 9 of Pentacles
Start a pleasure practice. This is the time to take advantage of the fruits of your labor. Really appreciate all you’ve worked for and achieved. There’s an element of gratitude for all the things in your life that you love — but it’s more specifically about enjoying those things. If this seems far from your situation or your manifestations are delayed, consider the small everyday things you like about your life or how you can make something like your morning coffee feel more special.
Pleasure practice is about engaging with the things you like. The more abundant we feel, the more abundance we generate. But feeling abundant doesn’t look like sitting on a pile of money like a hen on an egg. It’s about getting present with yourself and really taking time to experience the food in front of you, the clothes you’re dressing yourself in, the sensation of snuggling on the couch with your favorite person. All of this can be a celebration in itself.
Cancer – 5 of Swords Rx
The old patterns of guilt and shame are worn out. Beating yourself up for the things you did or didn’t do or say has zero value in your life. If you’ve wronged someone, absolutely take the time to apologize and adjust your behavior going forward, but the self-flagellation needs to go. You know what the right thing to do to move ahead is (specifically your intuition knows), so no need to spend your precious mental energy looping on how shitty you are. It doesn’t help anyone and only keeps you focusing on yourself in all the wrong ways.
It’s time to course correct, reframe and recenter. How do you do that? With awareness first. When you notice a self-attack, pause. Breathe into it. Send it some love. Then pivot to your intuition. Ask: What would get me back to center? Or: What’s the next right thing to do? Move from there. Awareness and recentering take practice, but this card is showing up because we are more than capable of improving in this department.
Leo – The Emperor Rx
In order to build something lasting in your life — be it a career, a business, a family/home, a friendship — you must first feel worthy of it and then lead with your heart every step of the way. The Emperor reminds us that we are all worthy beings. You’re allowed to take up as much space as the person next to you. You don’t take light away from anyone if you allow yourself to shine bright. We are all worthy of the things we desire — especially when they align with what we value.
This is a call to get clear on your heart-centered values. Choose four words that encompass the scope of what you want for your life on a soul-level (i.e. beyond the clothes or the car — dig deeper than that!). These values are the foundation for whatever you’re trying to build. Firmly rooted in what your heart appreciates and craves, you’ll be able to go out in the world and move in the most authentic and true-to-you way. Which will make the payoff — and the experience getting there — more fulfilling than you could have imagined.
Virgo – Knight of Swords Rx
Burnout warning. Slow down and give your nervous system some love. This card is a visceral experience for me as a reader because I know this energy very intimately. On the one hand, this Knight can help us reach deadlines and goals with a heighted swiftness and clarity that feels super aligned and in flow. But there’s meant to be an end date. A time when you finish up and give your body and emotions some much needed care that you probably forgot to do while on task.
Unfortunately, we live in a world that expects us to be in this Knight’s energy all the time. Society tells us that we’re only worthy when we’re being productive, which is a massive (and very damaging) lie. When we see this card show up for us, it’s an invitation to look at the way we’re expending our energy and pushing ourselves. If there’s an end date, great. If it just feels like constant overwhelm and exhaustion, it’s time to seek out some balance.
Libra – 8 of Cups
Ch-ch-ch-changes. What are you feeling the tug to walk away from? Even if things look good on the surface or have served you up until this point, listen to your heart and move on or just allow the change to take form. This could be an external shift that’s pushing you in another direction or a clear message from your intuition that confirms what you’ve been sensing — either way, you’re being asked to let go.
This message can be challenging, because we’re being asked to let go without having the clarity of what’s waiting on the other side. That’s why so many people choose to stay put (and ultimately feel stuck) because of the fear of the unknown. But in the 8 of Cups you’re letting go with a sense of knowing this is the right move for you (even if you don’t have all the answers yet!) and putting an essential amount of trust in yourself that you will find what’s meant for you.
Scorpio – 6 of Swords Rx
Transitions are hard. Change is difficult for everyone, even if the change is for the better. It takes some time to adjust and can often feel like a grieving process when we choose to move on from one thing to the next. Grief is relegated to death in our society, but we experience metaphorical death and birth constantly with the ebbs and flows of life, so grieving is something we should be allowing ourselves more often.
Change brings up fears because we don’t know what the new and different chapter will look like. There’s no real way we can know until you do it. This lack of clarity and fear can bring up resistance, but the lesson we’re meant to learn is how to take brave chances while simultaneously releasing old stories that have held us back. This release will clear the way for strength and wisdom that we maybe didn’t think possible. This is an invitation to feel into your decisions and take action on what feels genuinely right in your body. Then trust that decision — even (and especially) when we feel the grief kick in.
Sagittarius – 8 of Pentacles
Find your flow. Taking consistent action towards your goals is the only way to make them happen, but can you find enjoyment in the process? Developing a skill or learning something new takes time and repetition and we can’t rush to the end, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be tedious.
The focus of Aquarius Season for you is to refine your intentions for whatever it is you’re working toward and bring those intentions to the table every day, letting them fuel your curiosity, motivation, and progress. Staying grounded in your “why” will give your efforts purpose and a sense of ease — even if what you’re doing isn’t the most glamorous or easy. Keep showing up and putting in the work and find your flow by pairing intention with intuitive action.
Capricorn – The Tower Rx
Big changes are sweeping through. But you already knew that, didn’t you? Usually when the Tower shows up, we already have an inkling, if not a full-blown picture of what’s being shaken up. The message of this card isn’t: Shit’s about to go down, sucks for you. That might be what it feels like on the surface, but it’s really a sign that this change is coming in hot for your own good.
It isn’t going to feel easy, and it definitely doesn’t feel in your control, but what’s being torn away will help you to build back better. Your foundations are being rocked for a reason. In the reversal, there’s a sense of coming through on the other side and being able to see the greater lessons and your priorities going forward. Focus on tending to your tender nervous system and heart with lots of rest, good food, and herbal teas (look for gentle nervines).
Aquarius – The World Rx
A culmination point. It’s the end of one cycle and the start of another. The World Rx echoes the vibes of a Saturn Return with lessons showing up for you in hopes that you learn them and graduate into the next phase of life. You’re being invited to uplevel, but not before you give some much needed attention to any past pains that are holding you back.
It’s a time to be compassionate with yourself and be guided by your inner wisdom. You have a new perspective, clarity and tools to go forward with after all you’ve been through. There’s an awareness you have now that you can trust implicitly. Ask yourself: What’s coming to a close? What have I learned? Where am I healing? Where am I stepping into a new phase?
Pisces – The Hanged Man
Surrendering to the unknown (CASUAL). Surrender is not a defeatist act, it’s one of vulnerability and trust in the universe and yourself. It’s not always comfortable to surrender, to let go, because we’ve been taught that fighting, hustling, and pushing for the things we want is the only way. But at a certain point, there must be an element of surrender. Yes, do your part, put in the work. But then trust it.
Most spellwork relies on this element of surrender. First you work your spell with focused intention and then, with a “and so it is” you close it out with surrender. Letting it all go and trusting that Goddess will make it happen. It’s this trust — in our own ability and the greater forces of the universe — that’s the hardest part. The Hanged Man shifts our perception of the world by asking us to focus on our heart before our head. It’s time to pause, lean in to the transitions, and open up to the possibilities of the unknown.
