March 21 to April 20

Tarot cards for Aries for December: Knight of Swords, Queen of Swords, Four of Wands
Meaning: Work hard.
Although we’re gearing up for the holidays, you’re ramping up at work, and making amazing progress on your ambitions. I think you’ll have a lot to celebrate this Christmas.
The Knight and Queen of Swords see you relying on your intellect, logic, perceptiveness, and shrewdness to make a dynamic and daring plan of attack at work.
You want more (as always), and you want to get to the next level, and you’re making it happen. Good for you, Aries.
The Four of Wands blesses your efforts with rewards, the harder you work, the better results you’ll get. So, go all out this December, because you can go further than you think is possible.
April 21 to May 21
Taurus, it’s time to get back on track (Picture: Getty/Metro.co/uk)
Tarot cards for Taurus for December: Eight of Cups, The Hierophant, Seven of Swords
Meaning: Move on.
With a little bit of clever navigation, you can come through a tricky patch and get back on track.
It starts with facing reality and acknowledging something which isn’t working and hasn’t for a while now. Just let it be what it is (let go of your expectations) and stop investing so much energy here.
The Hierophant tells you to go do something more worthwhile instead, like join in with something bigger than just you. A class, group, social circle, team, campaign, cause, community event, forum – something that means something to you, and makes you feel you’re making a difference.
The Seven of Swords tells you to beware of listening to the excuses, pleas or gaslighting of whatever (or whoever) it is you are no longer investing in.
They may make a last-ditch effort to draw you back, but don’t let them. They have shown their true colours. Believe them. Move on.
May 22 to June 21
Time to mix things up (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Gemini for December: Nine of Coins, Ace of Wands, King of Swords
Meaning: A lasting change.
This is the month to activate or research a new hobby, travel ambition, lifestyle change, education course or job direction. And the key is that it’s something long-term, that you’d need to commit to for years vs months, and that it will pay back handsomely if you do.
The Nine of Coins and Ace of Wands reveal that timescale and type of ambition. This isn’t an overnight sensation, which is why I suggest research. It might be that your goal this month is figuring out what you have to do, what resources you need, what you must invest. This could be a whole new 2022 resolution.
The King of Swords shows you need to think, and plan, long-term and that there’s an intellectual aspect to this – maybe it’s a cultural tour, a course leading to a career change, a hobby which will sharpen your mind and thinking, a regime that will bring mental clarity and calm.
June 22 to July 23
Look for a silver lining (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Cancer for December: Three of Swords, Six of Wands, The Sun
Meaning: Phoenix from the flames.
From a horrible betrayal or emotionally wounding experience comes a magical silver lining you never expected.
The Three of Swords shows that you’ve endured a hurtful encounter with someone who meant a lot. We all have our scars. This might have been an act of betrayal, rejection, cruelty, or sabotage. You’re healing. You removed the source of the pain, and moved on.
But, here comes the twist! The Sun and the Six of Wands combine to reveal that a magical silver lining is going to emerge this month, related to this past experience.
Something positive, illuminating, life-affirming, prosperous and joyful will emerge from the ashes of this situation, so be ready to receive it, and be grateful.
You just never know what lies in store. From pain can come appreciation and happiness.
July 24 to August 23
You can move past this, Leo (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Leo for December: The Hanged Man, Knight of Coins, Nine of Wands
Meaning: Push past a problem
With a push and a concerted effort, you can overcome something which has held you back in the past, and make wonderful progress.
The Hanged Man and Nine of Wands show that you’ve hit an obstacle, a blockage in the road, and you’ve kind of stalled.
You can’t see a way around or through this issue, but I’m here to tell you it’s easier than you think.
Don’t look at the direct route, be more foxy. Look at this situation from a myriad of different perspectives, in one of them lies the root cause of the block and therefore the way to resolve it. You can do this.
The Knight of Coins sees you working hard on this, putting in the thought, creating a plan of attack, executing it, and getting the rewards you deserve. Go for it. You’ve got this.
August 24 to September 23
Don’t ask, don’t get (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Virgo for December: Three of Coins, Queen of Wands, Nine of Cups
Meaning: The squeaky wheel gets the grease
Someone you know is in a position to really help you out on a heartfelt and longstanding ambition or dream of yours… you just have to ask!
The Three of Coins and Nine of Cups reveal that a close connection of yours can provide the support, advice, introduction, resources or help you need to make a dream come true.
So, be the squeaky wheel this month – make sure everyone around you knows what you want, because one of them can make it a reality.
The Queen of Wands shows this is linked to travel, education, lifestyle, or creative undertakings or roles. This is an inspiring and powerful ambition of yours, which has the potential to change your life. It’s worth squeaking about it.
September 24 to October 23
What do you really want, Libra? (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Libra for December: Ace of Coins, Two of Coins, Knight of Cups
Meaning: Design your dream life
This card combination makes me think that if you can marshal and organise your material resources well, you can redesign your lifestyle to be the thing of beauty, harmony, and pleasure that you so desire.
Life doesn’t often happen by accident, we are responsible for the way our days pan out. We have control.
The Two and Ace of Coins advise you to review your material world- health, work, home, money, assets. Look to add to and enhance your wealth, look to invest long-term, look to address issues and repair faulty bits, look to improve.
It’s not a dull task, because the end game here is using these improved resources to create the dream life you want to live: beautiful home, travel, fulfilling career, healthy bank balance etc. Don’t think of this as boring admin, but as a lifestyle redesign.
Make your daydreams a reality by figuring out how to create the resources you need to do it.
October 24 to November 22
Time to heal, Scorpio (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Scorpio for December: Wheel of Fortune, Ace of Cups, Six of Coins
Meaning: Relationship healing and revival
Change and transformation, for the better, in your relationship world is on the cards this festive season, which brings glad tidings.
The Wheel of Fortune shows that a combination of fate, circumstance, and your own positive actions combine to create a perfect storm of transformation in your life.
The Ace of Cups reveals new friendships, romance, intensifying bonds and strong family ties can all be yours this December. Reunite, celebrate, socialise, call them, connect, send a card, wish them well, ask for an introduction.
And The Six of Coins promises that if you smile at the world, the world will smile back. Good karma is flowing through your world this month, use it to make everyone you know feel loved and liked, and the same will come to you.
November 23 to December 21
Get out (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Sagittarius for December: Six of Swords, Ten of Swords, Justice
A very direct message for you this month Sagittarius: move on from anyplace, anyone or any situation that is treating you unfairly; you don’t deserve it, and you shouldn’t continue to receive it. Enough.
The Six and Ten of Swords are both powerful cards about cutting ties, withdrawing, retreating, ending something, leaving, and heading off into the sunset (feeling relieved and liberated, rather than sad or upset). You’ve fallen into some toxicity and you need to extract yourself from it.
Justice shows that you’re in the right (no matter if they’re making you feel otherwise, or gaslighting you), so know that you’ll be vindicated down the line and that karma will sort it. Don’t do anything mean or petty, just leave. Your absence is the message.
December 22 to January 21
This month is all about self-care for Capricorn etty Images/iStockphoto)
Tarot cards for Capricorn for December: Ten of Wands, Strength, The Empress
Meaning: Look after yourself
TLC and self-care are your tasks for December, Cap, because you’ve taken a lot on, and you need to treat yourself kindly, and with patience, if you’re to get through it all.
The Ten of Wands reveals you’re a bit overburdened right now. Too much work, too many obligations, too few helpers.
Strength shows that you’re going to come through okay. Make a plan, get help, carve up your time, and tackle it.
This is a short-term bottleneck, but please take some life lessons from it in order to avoid getting back to this place. Don’t bite off more than you can chew anytime soon.
The Empress shows that you need to be super kind, compassionate, and patient with yourself as you plough through your tasks. Make time for treats, relaxation, fun, and rest. Recharge your energy. Fuel your efforts. Be good to yourself, and this will all turn out better than you currently think.
January 22 to February 19
AQUARIUS (Credits: Getty Images/iStockphoto)
Tarot cards for Aquarius for December: King of Coins, Death, Page of Swords
Meaning: Big choices
You’ve been umming and ahhing, with the optional Page of Swords, about something related to your work, health, home, or finances.
The King of Coins reveals the need to step up, take charge, make a move, and own your actions. You are wondering how best to do this, and what steps to take. Although, it’s starting to look like procrastination if you’re totally honest.
Death brings urgency and action to this scheme. Focus on the choices that represent the greatest changes.
Why have you reached a crossroads if it’s not to take a new path onwards? Opt for decisions that bring new and untested routes or activity into your life. Seek transformation.
I promise that the bolder the choice, the bigger the reward. This time next year everything could be different based on what you decide to do now.
February 20 to March 20
A relationship challenge lies ahead, Pisces (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot cards for Pisces for December: Two of Cups, The Tower, Eight of Coins
Meaning: Relationship growth
A love challenge lies on the horizon for you, Pisces, but I do know that you’ll overcome it, and your relationship will come out the other side stronger for it.
The Tower brings new news or a sudden change of circumstances that shocks you, frankly, and causes some kind of knock-on impact to your closest relationship (could be romantic, or family, or best friend).
The Eight of Coins hints this will lead to a learning curve phase for your relationship, where you’re both tested, and both have to understand something new about each other.
This is an opportunity for growth and intimacy if you see it that way. Focus on tackling the issue as a united front, rather than attacking each other.
The Two of Cups shows that it can all lead to a better, firmer understanding and foundation for this relationship to continue to grow and thrive. Be positive, talk, communicate, listen, understand. It’s usually from hardship that our most significant and lasting growth comes.
