What lies in store for you in 2016? We have drawn two tarot cards for each star sign to discover the answers. We’ve also included a useful mantra to help you through the first weeks of the new year.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
The Emperor and Two of Cups
It’s a good idea to think about bringing some organization and additional structure into your life. The New Year is a great time to declutter your home. Start with your desk. Selling unwanted possessions will appeal to your frugal inner Cappie. Making room in this physical way creates spiritual space for new friendship and deepening love with your partner and family. If you’re single, expect romance.
“I create space to breathe freely.”
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
King of Pentacles and Queen of Wands
Down-to-earth pragmatism meets ambition and creativity. If you are thinking of changing your job or going it alone this year, these two cards encourage you to get moving. Keep your feet on the ground while allowing your imagination full rein. Be open to all kinds of new ideas.
“I stand firm while my mind soars.”
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Four of Cups and The Hanged Man
A slow start to the year for you, Pisces. Don’t let it get you down. There are new opportunities right in front of you. Take your time, and only act on them when you feel inspired. You can’t force things; you can only go with the flow. If you are feeling physically tired, change your diet and make sure you are getting plenty of vitamins.
“I relax into my well-being.”
Aries March 21 – April 19
Two of Cups and King of Swords
Love is in the air and you will feel gorgeous, Aries. Look out for a new friend or romantic interest. An older man, possibly your boss, will have a lot to say to you. Don’t assume you know better – listen to his advice. You may be called on to back up a colleague or to reveal the truth in some way. Maintain an impartial stance and you will be respected for your honesty.
“I am open to both love and logic.”
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Six of Cups and The Emperor
Children and childhood may be playing a big part for you in 2016, Taurus. When childhood memories arise, look at your young self with love and affection. It’s possible you might be making a visit to the place where you grew up. Expect this playful time to be tempered by strong parental influences. The Emperor reminds you that you are all grown up now and have important responsibilities.
“I send love and protection back to my younger self.”
Gemini May 21 – June 20
The Chariot and King of Cups
Gemini you will be taking control of your destiny in 2016. Negotiation and persuasion will get you farther than unyielding demands. Expect to be consulted on issues of the heart. Your ever-present diplomacy and tact will be valued by all who come into contact with you.
“I am driving forward with clarity and compassion.”
Cancer June 21 – July 22
King of Wands and Five of Wands
You are reaching a certain level of autonomy and maturity, Cancer. Freedom of expression is very important to you, so consider working for yourself. There will be competition, but you can rise above the challenges. Your distaste for confrontation will stand you in good stead this year. Take a mature, regal stance and don’t get caught up in undignified skirmishes.
“I turn toward independence and freedom.”
Leo July 23 – August 22
Queen of Cups and Ace of Pentacles

“I could be so lucky… lucky, lucky, lucky!”
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Eight of Swords and The Tower

You’re on your way. Failing to move forward will result in fate doing it for you. However bad things look, there is light on the horizon. You can and will get through to better times ahead.
“I can see my way forward now.”
Libra September 23 – October 22
Nine of Wands and Page of Cups

Refocus on the goal you have set yourself, and resume the task with renewed strength and enthusiasm. It’s a long road, but the end results will be worth the effort.
“I can do this!”

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Ace of Swords and The High Priestess

Gather your resources and you will know when the right time comes to put your plans into action.
“I hold clear vision and a still tongue.”
