Tarotscopes are short predictive readings aimed at each zodiac sign. They are a great way to combine astrology and tarot for a quick overview of any particular period of time or situation. Here is Lunar Café’s 2017 tarotscope, which highlights the energy and overall feeling around each sign for the coming year. Remember to check the 2017 tarotscope for your Moon sign as well as your Sun sign.
Aries March 21 – April 19
The Ten of Pentacles is connected to the practical aspects of family and inter-generational cooperation. This is the year to focus, and place your attention on building a solid future. Whether you have children or not, it is time to think about the legacy that is your life, Aries. If the idea of starting a business, building a home, or some similar project has been nagging at you, this is the year to put doubt aside and get on with it. Word of the year: Build.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
The Ace of Cups for you, Taurus. Time to open your heart to love and friendship. Not just from other people, but also from the Universe. Spend time in meditation and connecting to the Earth. Think about doing some chakra opening, cleansing and closing rituals. The appearance of this card may signify a birth within your immediate circle of family and friends. Word of the year: Love.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
The Five of Cups signifies an emotional challenge up ahead, Gemini. While this may be difficult and hard to come to terms with, know that there is a big opportunity for spiritual growth. A loss or sacrifice will teach you to value all that is precious in your life. Your soul will help you to traverse the experience and bring you to a deep understanding. Keep your heart open and focus on the positive. Word of the year: Growth.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
The Sun for you, Cancer. Expect a year of growth and progress. This will be one of your better years. The Sun signifies improvement in all areas of life – health, wealth, spirituality, relationships, work, and so on. Adopt the mantra, “Everything is easy for me,” and it will be so. Make the most of these sunlit gifts and ensure that you put some of your good fortune aside for less beneficent times. Word of the year: Ease.
Leo July 23 – August 22
The Seven of Cups has appeared for you, Leo. This means that there will be numerous opportunities this year. However, they will be strongly connected to your emotional well-being. You may feel as if you are floundering and unable to choose a path. Pick one and don’t be distracted. Your choices are hardly ever set in stone and you can change direction any time. While you should beware of those pesky distractions, you should pay attention to your inner guidance. Word of the year: Choose.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
The Eight of Wands tells you this is the year to gather your resources. To get organized and focused on the next stage of your life. Don’t procrastinate. The energy is right for you to ride a wave toward your goals. It may not be smooth, but it will be fast. You will be busy – just make sure you are busy with the right things. Clear out any dead wood and get your head into a clear space. Word of the year: Buzz.
Libra September 23 – October 22
The Queen of Pentacles is your card, Libra. A straight-forward, practical personality – she encourages you to take on aspects of her character. Be kind, but be pragmatic. Teach others to help themselves, as you also do the same. If called on to help in an emergency, keep a calm head, dispense tea and do your very best. You may have to give your support to someone, again, do what you can and be of practical assistance. This year might also be a good time to nest-build. Word of the year: Hygge.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The Lovers has appeared for your 2017 tarotscope, Scorpio. This will be a memorable year for you. You may experience a deep personal connection in the way of romantic love or it might be that you have to make a life-changing choice. Or both. Learn how to fill your being with love and accept that love is around you and in you at all times. Find the beauty in life and love the heck out of it. While you’re at it, remember to love and appreciate the incredible person that you are. Word of the year: Appreciate.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
The Seven of Swords tells you it might be time to reclaim something that was yours, Sagittarius. Do you need to go back and finish school? Have you set aside a goal in order to please or help another? Now it is your time. Do all that you can to get back on track. By hook or crook. Meanwhile, be aware that you could be the victim of an underhanded action. Keep hold of your finances, lock your doors, re-evaluate your personal security measures, and watch your purse. Word of the year: Determination.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
The Three of Cups for you, Capricorn. 2017 is the year to let that emotional, creative, fun-loving Capricorn shine. We all know how hard you work, how you keep us on the straight and narrow, how responsible you are. Let your hair down, make this year be the funnest ever. This card also signifies the deepening of emotional ties between friends and families. Use your Capricorn determination to build on these and make them be more important than anything else. No-one ever regrets the experience of love. Word of the year: Play.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
The Hierophant tells you that you are going to be a role-model and guide for someone, and/or to look out for one to guide you, Aquarius. The Hierophant is a mentor, a spiritual warrior. He has passed this way before and can help you along your own path. As you can help others. He knows the most effective way to learn and grow is to teach. Share your knowledge and experience – it will be appreciated. Word of the year: Guidance.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Like Cancer, you also get the Sun, Pisces. Bathe in its rays, spend time out of doors. Make a garden, build a shed, take up hiking. Don’t forget to take care of your feet. See how your health and well-being improves. Build on it, keep going. If you are thinking of making major changes in your career or life in general, this year is a good time to do that. Know that your choices are spot-on – you can’t go wrong. “Everything is easy.” Word of the year: Move.
