Let the tarot guide you as to what you need to be talking about. Are you ready?
March 21 to April 20
Tarot card for Aries for Mercury in Aries: Knight of Swords
Meaning: The Knight of Swords serves a double helping of assertiveness and ambition your way.
It’s time to make your biggest demand, to push for what you most want and which feels most out of reach or under another’s control.
You might need to get tough, to stand your ground firmly, to be difficult to ignore. That’s okay, you think this aim is worth the effort. And you actually like a little tussle every now and then. Go start that fight!

Tarot card for Taurus for Mercury in Aries: Four of Wands
The Four of Wands often links to improvements in your work or education roles, which can lead to better rewards and sometimes a change of location or upgrade of your living situation.
So apply for that dream role overseas! Put in an application to study at the college of your dreams. Ask to be promoted or for the raise. Expand your responsibilities, and rewards. Put yourself forward and rise up the ladder. It’s time.

Tarot card for Gemini for Mercury in Aries: The Moon
Meaning: Don’t let them brush you off. There is a mystery at hand and you can feel it. The façade being presented is not the truth, and you want answers.
Go get them, Gemmy. Be the FBI this week! The Moon shows that not all is as it seems and if you keep pushing and probing you will break through and see the real story.
You need this information, it’s important to your own actions and decisions. Do your homework, ask questions, analyse. Get the truth.

June 22 to July 23
Tarot card for Cancer for Mercury in Aries: Ace of Swords
Meaning: So you want the truth? Now is the time to get it. I am not saying it will be the nicest conversation you’ve ever had but you can handle it, and the outcome is very worthwhile.
The Ace of Swords is a big prompt to initiate the dialogue you know you need to have, but have perhaps put off.
Don’t be scared. The truth already exists, you’re already living with it, you just need it clarifying so you can react and move ahead accordingly. Ask questions, listen, be compassionate, don’t knee-jerk react. Take it all in.

July 24 to August 23
Tarot card for Leo for Mercury in Aries: The Hanged Man
Meaning: You keep having the same old conversation with someone, it’s like Groundhog Day, over and over the same ground. Ugh.
The Hanged Man reveals you need to come at this from a new angle, a different provocation. Put yourself in their shoes. Ask them what you have so far failed to. Respond in a different way to last time.
Change the stimulus and the response will also change. This limbo is going to come to an end, you are both going to make headway at last and communicate fully.

August 24 to September 23
Tarot card for Virgo for Mercury in Aries: Knight of Cups
Meaning: Someone needs to hear how you really, truly feel about them. This is likely to be a romantic relationship, but it could be family or a deep friendship too.
They love you. They sometimes don’t feel like this is reciprocated (although it is) and maybe you just take it for granted a little, or maybe you’re uncomfortable with these big declarations.
Do it your way, Virgo, but do share your love and respect for them. They have earned it. And you do mean it.

September 24 to October 23
Tarot card for Libra for Mercury in Aries: Knight of Coins
Meaning: There is a fairly serious and detailed matter which you need to have a fairly serious and detailed conversation about.
The Knight of Coins shows it relates to your health, wealth, work or home. This is about future-proofing, security, putting something in place to protect your investments down the line, being shrewd about your resources.
Seek professional advice or input from someone with genuine expertise. And ask them everything! Leave no question unanswered.

October 24 to November 22
Tarot card for Scorpio for Mercury in Aries: Five of Wands
Meaning: A scrappy, slightly contentious or conflict-riddled conversation might unfold this Mercury in Aries season, and you might not enjoy it, but it’s all better out than in.
If things do get heated or unkind then don’t beat yourself up about it. Sometimes we all say things we regret, sometimes emotions run high. The thing is to acknowledge it quickly afterwards and try to resolve it, or atone for your part in it.
Don’t let things escalate. Bring them back to a stable centre, be calm, apologise. But, be glad that what needed to be said was said!

November 23 to December 21
Tarot card for Sagittarius for Mercury in Aries: Seven of Wands
Meaning: Stand your ground, hold firm, stick up for yourself. The Seven of Wands is about competition, rivalry, and have the courage to stand tall when you’re being challenged.
You can win here. You deserve your spot. You are in the right place doing the right thing, so don’t let jealous or spiteful rivals try to undercut you.
Show them your mettle. Take the challenge as a compliment that what you have is coveted and envied by others.

Tarot card for Aquarius for Mercury in Aries: Eight of Swords
Meaning: This Mercury in Aries season will bring you a golden opportunity to break a communication rut or bad habit that you’ve fallen into. You keep having the same conversation and getting nowhere fast with it.
The Eight of Swords is a nudge that, if you keep doing the same thing in the same way, you never will.
Notice the dynamics at play, examine the to and fro, look at the triggers for things going south. Now do it differently. Make progress at last.
