New year, new you is in full effect, meaning old flames are totally extinguished to make way for new lovers, or does it mean another go-round with your pesky situationship? Since relationships aren’t easy to decipher, we are letting the universe sort it out. Here are your energetic messages for January, according to the tarot!
Aries: Queen of Cups
Let’s get deep! You’re at the helm of your emotions with grace, Aries. Surrendering to your emotional depth this year will provide you with oceans of intense pleasure. There is an all-consuming love possible if you stay on this road. Don’t run from hot and heavy feelings, there may be a way to turn the fiery passion into promise. With a little cool-headed guidance, both your carnal interests and emotional needs may meet at the center.
Taurus: Four of Pentacles
Focusing on your career and financial security has gotten you far in life but it may have contributed to a romantic drought, Taurus. Before you commit yourself to another year of prioritizing work over play, think about the real cost of lost relationships. Will you trade your next big love or closest friendship for isolation behind a wall of money?
Gemini: Eight of Pentacles (Inverted)
Something is not working here, Gemini. You’ve got some self-development to commit to before looking for love! Sometimes dating can be fun and a relationship can become a safe space that paints our red flags green but it’s time to be honest with ourselves. This lesson has appeared to you many times, and this may be the year you learn it. Try dating yourself for a bit and proving that you’re someone you can depend on.
Cancer: Nine of Wands
You made your bed and you must sleep in it, Cancer. Your decisions from 2022 will follow you into the new year and you must finish what was started. This means holding to pivotal boundaries in your relationships with others, both romantic and platonic. After exhausting your inner resources to protect yourself last year, you need the support of allies more than ever. You must learn to let your walls down and be vulnerable in order for your love to thrive.
Leo: Knight of Pentacles (Inverted)
You want to shake things up, Leo. I understand. The same old routine can get well.. old but maybe it’s time to enjoy the familiarity of it all. Monotony may be considered a necessary dread in any relationship if you want to watch it grow through its winter. If you learn to stick things out, the fruits of your labor could mean big love and success for your relationship this year.
Virgo: Ace of Cups (Inverted)
You are emanating solo energy right now, Virgo. This time is all about self-love and allowing it to flow through you, freely without fear. You are in a position to build a stronger bond with yourself, and you should focus on protecting that! Indulge in proud self-love publicly (and privately). It's time for your heart to rest and reset.
Libra: King of Wands
You are ready to commit to something long-term Libra! You are in a fiery position, ready to take the initiative and lock things down. Leave the past in the past, and keep your eyes on the road ahead. The energy is high, and can carry you to your goals, romantic and otherwise so don’t hesitate.
Scorpio: Ten of Swords
Time to pull those swords out of your back, Scorpio. Following your epic destruction, you are reborn for the new year. Something has ended in flames and you’ve just survived a betrayal from a source once trusted; the good news is that chapter is closed. This is the time to rebuild yourself from the soil up and release energies that aren’t resolved. Remember which learned lessons will serve you in the new relationships you’ll sow.
Sagittarius: Nine of Cups
Sagittarius, you are one of the few signs coming into the new year from a place of equilibrium. All of your ducks are in a row, and you’ve achieved every careful outcome you’ve desired. The new year will bring you closer in relationships, and offer you a chance to reach even deeper levels of appreciation and intimacy for those you love. You can bet it all on the person in your corner, your partner is riding for you all 2023.
Capricorn: The Moon (Inverted)
Facing your demons, Capricorn? Congratulations on making it to this point. You are taking a hard look at yourself to dispel the confusion and self-doubt you've harbored. Trusting your intuition will benefit you right now. It’s time to talk about what’s been on your mind, and use self-confidence and assuredness to launch your relationships to the next level. Don’t be afraid to go for it!
Aquarius: The High Priestess
You’re scheduled for major character development this year, Aquarius! It is time to find your voice in your relationships, and welcome open and honest communication. You’ll need to look inside at your inner dialogue in order to truly grasp your needs and wants before embarking on this path to balance and wisdom.
