Your card: Ten of Wands, reversed
This year will likely be a busy one for you, Aries, and as a result, you may find yourself feeling like you’re taking on too much with too little help from others. If you’re overwhelmed, it’s because the universe is trying to teach you a lesson in 2024: You don’t have to do this alone. You can reach out for help, confide in a friend, or turn to a trusted mentor. But perhaps more importantly, you’re learning that you don’t have to keep shouldering this burden. You’re allowed to let go of situations that are no longer serving you—and it’s important for you to put your mental, physical, and emotional well-being first. It may not be an easy lesson to learn, but you’ll be grateful for it nonetheless.

You may enter the new year feeling creative, inspired, or even restless with the need to start something new. You have a tendency to dream big, despite your general earthy groundedness, but while you can be persistent, you’re not always known for your patience. Whatever you’re working toward, you know it’s important—even life-changing for you—but waiting for the fruits of your labor can be frustrating, especially when you’re met with unexpected setbacks and disappointments. But there’s a big lesson to be learned this year, and it’s this: Life works on its own time, not yours. You’re moving in the right direction, but it’s important to remember that the journey is just as important as the destination. Be patient and persistent, and don’t be too reckless in your action—because as much as you may want to speed up the process, you may end up being your own downfall.

You’re headed down a new path this year, Gemini. You may not know exactly where you’re headed, but life is opening up in new ways and you’re ready for a change. You may feel the need to force this energy to bend to your will, but as energizing as it may feel, you can’t force your own fate here. This is the time to welcome new things into your life, to experience them without feeling the need to conquer them, to learn from them and, most importantly, learn about yourself. If you’ve felt burnt out, indecisive, or lost lately, this year will force you to consider new perspectives and reevaluate the limiting beliefs you may have been placing on yourself. One thing is clear: Where you’ll be by the end of 2024 will be far from where you were at the beginning of it.

If you’ve been going through a tough time lately, Cancer, I have good news for you: Things are going to start looking up for you this year. Whatever you lost along the way—money, your job, a loved one, or even your confidence—may have left you feeling insecure, heartbroken, isolated, or unsure of the direction of your life, which can make heading into the new year feeling uncertain. But 2024 will remind you of the good that’s still in your life and give you the taste of something you may not have felt in a while: hope. Your life might not look exactly like you thought it would this year, but you might find that as long as you adjust your expectations, there’s a lot of happiness to be found in the next 12 months—and it’s important that you open your heart to it, because you deserve it.

Get ready, Leo: It’s about to be a particularly empowering year for you. You’re ready to rise in the ranks and cement your own independence, and that’s exactly what you can expect to do in 2024. You’re no longer interested in taking other people’s crap, and you’re going to spend the year building up your boundaries to make sure you don’t have to. Get ready to step into your power and leave behind petty situations or anyone who isn’t willing to be upfront with you, because you simply don’t have time for other people’s drama anymore. This is truly your year, so go ahead and shine.
Your card: Ace of Pentacles
2024 will be the year of new opportunities for you, Virgo—you just have to be willing to put in the work (not that a little hard work has ever scared you). This year is giving you the chance to upgrade your life, but even if that comes in the form of an unexpected offer, you’re still going to have to roll up your sleeves, because the outcome depends solely on what you choose to do with it. The good news? This card is a sign that if you are willing to plant the seeds and nourish them, you’re undoubtedly on the road to success. If you’ve been waiting to act on your ideas, start looking for ways to implement them, and don’t be afraid to jump at the opportunity when it presents itself—because if anyone can make magic with this energy, it’s you.
Your card: The Sun
Good news, Libra: you got perhaps the most positive card in the whole deck. If the last few years have been tough for you, you can rest easy knowing that 2024 is going to be chock full of fun, good vibes, and success. No matter what you choose to do with yourself, the sun’s radiance will follow you—and knowing you, you’ll be more than happy to shine that same light on those around you. Don’t shy away from the opportunities that come your way. This is the time to step into your power, Libra—because if not now, then when?
Your card: Nine of Cups
2024 will be all good vibes for you, Scorpio. If you’ve been going through a tough time lately, that’s behind you now, and only good things lay ahead for the year. Instead, this will be the time to work on your emotional fulfillment and bask in the abundance you’ve been blessed with. Learn to indulge in these feelings of happiness, because if you spend your time worrying too much about how to conserve it, you’ll likely miss out on some of the many blessings of the year. Good times always pass eventually, so make the most of what you have now—and don’t forget to practice gratitude for the things you’re being given.
Your card: Five of Cups
Things may not turn out the way you hope or expect they will this year, Sagittarius. Truthfully, this may lead to a lot of disappointment, self-pity, or even grief, which can be particularly difficult to deal with and move on from. But while you may be stuck grappling with some heavy feelings in 2024, there’s also a very important lesson to be learned here: When you’re busy focusing on what you don’t have, you may miss out on the opportunities and blessings that are still there, waiting for you to acknowledge them. Because endings often lead to beginnings, and sometimes our greatest disappointments turn out to be blessings in disguise. Even in the worst of times, keep your eye out for the silver linings—if anyone can find them, it’s you.
Your card: King of Wands
Get ready to step into your power in 2024, Capricorn. You’ll likely go into the year feeling more inspired, creative, and motivated than ever, but more importantly, you’ll have the resources and the willpower to actually turn your ideas and dreams into reality. You’re ready to level up, and those around you can tell—you hold more influence over others than usual, and many will be willing and excited to follow your lead as you start working on your vision. Success may not necessarily be guaranteed, but it’s certainly in sight—and if anyone has the capacity for the hard work and dedication it takes to make it to the finish line, it’s a Capricorn. You were truly made for this moment.
Your card: Six of Swords
2024 will be the year of moving on for you, Aquarius—whether you’re ready for it or not. The truth is that the last year or so may have been exhausting for you, and you’ll finally be transitioning away from whatever you’ve been dealing with, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be easy or an immediate relief. The future may look uncertain or even unstable from where you’re standing right now, but what you don’t realize is that whatever lies ahead will ultimately help you grow and become the person you want—and need—to be. Perhaps the biggest lesson you can learn from this year is to let go of the things that hold you back from your potential and allow yourself to grow comfortable in the unfamiliarity of this new path. Change is not always easy, but it will be worth it in the end.
Your card: The Hanged Man
You may feel like you’re stuck in a weird limbo this year, Pisces, which may feel particularly bizarre if you’ve experienced a lot of change and expansion over the last year or so. But these pauses in life often happen for a reason, and it’s because you have something to learn in those moments of suspension. If you feel unable to move forward, ask yourself why. What’s holding you back? Is there a new perspective to be found here? What may feel like a frustrating detour in the moment may actually be an important spiritual awakening or even just a lightbulb moment about the life you’ve been living. Whether you’re ready for it or not, 2024 is going to be a year of introspection for you—so listen to what the universe is trying to tell you and learn what you can from it. Even if you may feel like you’ve only physically moved a little by the end of the year, it’s likely you’ll have made a lot of mental, emotional, and spiritual progress by the time 2024 rolls around.
