Bam! The first week of the year and we are ready for our One Card Tarot reading, and boy oh boy, it better be good!
That would be nice, wouldn’t it? If we lay down the cards and all we see is the promise of goodness.
Let’s see, who knows maybe this first week might contain more than a hangover, time off and that nagging feeling of “Come on, let’s get this thing going already!”
Let’s put it this way, of all the weeks of the year, this one has the least amount of pressure on it. You’d think it would not be this way, but this first week is always about waiting to go back to work, waiting for this or that to kick in, and waiting for life to go back to normal. It’s the second week of the year that will bring serious action.
So, for now, in this first week of a very special year, 2022, we can sit back, take some advice, dream of a better day, and plan for a fantastic future. Let’s take a look now at what the Tarot tells us…
Weekly One Card Tarot Reading, January 3 – 9, 2022
(March 21 – April 19)
Tarot card: Knight of Swords, reversed
Exactly as predicted, this card speaks of chilling out simply because you don’t have the energy at this point to start it all up.
You probably DID party hard on New Year’s Eve, and even if you didn’t, you are ‘not there’ yet, when it comes to jumping on the bandwagon for the New Year.
You’ll get there, and you feel confident about that. Right now, this week, you’ll be mellowing out, preparing for week two. It’s all good.
(April 20 – May 20)
Tarot card: Temperance, reversed
You’re going to take this week to reflect and think about what you want to do with this year ahead. You will be taking a very spiritual approach to your new year, and you need this week to figure it all out. Great revelations will be coming to you this week, and you’ll find yourself on a very unique path.
You want to bring more light into your life, and this week, you may just stumble on the best way ever to do so.
(May 21 – June 20)
Tarot card: Two of Pentacles, reversed
Before you get into anything too serious, you are lucky enough to be able to take this week off (to a degree) so that you can fully indulge in the kind of silly stuff you love. If you’re a gamer, you’ll probably lose your mind in tech this week, and if you’re a creative gizmo-loving Gemini, expect to get your hands dirty while you involve yourself in fun, mind-boggling projects.
(June 21 – July 22)
Tarot card: Three of Swords, reversed
While this card doesn’t ‘look’ that nice, it’s quite meaningful for you, as it represents your present mental state, and where that’s it is in self-reflection, a minor amount of self-doubt, and the idea of acknowledging what’s wrong in your life so that you can make a concerted effort to make it right. There is promise in this card, but it depends on how much effort you put into doing the right thing by yourself.
(July 23 – August 22)
Tarot card: Ace of Pentacles, reversed
You’re going to start this year by spending way too much money and having way too good a time for the first week! You know you have obligations coming up, and while they do press on you, you’d rather mellow into them ‘next week’ than do anything other than spend money, buy gifts, eat expensive and yummy foods with friends. Let’s call it the ‘storm before the calm.’
(August 23 – September 22)
Tarot card: The Hermit, reversed
You are walking into the first week of the new year with trepidation. Something happened to you at the end of last year that makes you feel like you should be more careful about certain things. This is your week to steady your pace and make sure that everything ‘works’. This could be physical or health-related. You had a scare; you are safe now, but you are still unsure of yourself. You’ll be OK. Baby steps.
(September 23 – October 22)
Tarot card: The Emperor
It’s all positive energy for you, Libra, as this card reveals who you are a strong, focused leader who knows what they are doing. You will be in a position to help others this week and while doing so, you will inspire someone to grow into a better version of themselves. Your clarity rules the week, as you have no doubts or qualms to set you back. Confidence is key and you have enough of it to spare.
(October 23 – November 21)
Tarot card: The Fool
You are one of the folks we spoke of, who wait another week for the reality of a new year to set in. As for this week, you’re doing nothing but what you want. You just don’t feel like going with the flow, as your flow says stay home and overeat. You’re all about the overindulgences this week — resolutions? What the heck are those things about anyway? You’ll get to your 2022 when you feel like it. After all, you’re the boss of you!
(November 22 – December 21)
Tarot card: Queen of Wands, reversed
Your main objective this week is to stay in prosperity consciousness. You worked during the last week of the year, and you’ll work even harder during the first week. You find this to be auspicious, and it sets your mind up to think and believe that this entire year is going to bring you a great financial fortune. You’d be right, so keep up the good work, Sagittarius.

(December 22 – January 19)
Tarot card: Nine of Wands
This is a tough card, and it represents a tough person. That person is you, Capricorn, and during this first week, you may immediately come into some strife.
There will be someone who is adamantly against your wishes, and let’s just put it this way: you will plow them down. You are right, they are wrong, and in order to do what is right, you’ll have to be forceful. I don’t see a problem there.
(January 20 – February 18)
Tarot card: Eight of Wands
This week is about movement, exercise, momentum, and action. You’ll be swept off your feet and thrown into the heart of it all, where you will get to show what you are made of. This is a great week to prove to people that you are ready to work and able to create greatness. It’s also a good time to join a gym or get into a good hot yoga class.
(February 19 – March 10)
Tarot card: Knight of Cups
This card is strictly about a message, one that is either coming your way or one that you will be delivering. If this strikes you as correct, it’s because this message has been in dire need of communicating, and it’s finally time. This message is positive and helpful and whether you are the recipient or the delivery person, the message is about love and should be treated as such.
