Welcome to your weekly Twin Peaks tarot reading from 8th May to 14th May.
Before we begin, I want to emphasise that these readings are only for entertainment. While tarot readings can be insightful and provide guidance, they should not be considered gospel. Additionally, the messages in this reading may not resonate with everyone. It’s important to remember that you are always in control of your own life and that any decisions or actions you take based on this reading are your responsibility. With that said, let’s proceed with an open mind and see what insights the tarot has to offer you this week, Peakies!
Aries (The Ram) | March 21-April 19
The stars have aligned, and it’s a week of new beginnings and opportunities for you, Aries, with the Ace of Pentacles and the Ace of Wands suggesting that you are entering a phase of material and creative growth. You might be starting a new job or project that allows you to use your imagination and passion while making some decent money — that’s what they call living inside a dream! But beware, the mischievous Five of Swords is lurking in the shadows, suggesting that there may be some hurdles along the way. Those who resist change may try to bring you down, but don’t let their negativity dim your light. Stay true to your authentic self and show them what you’re made of. Give them a chance to fix their hearts, and if they can’t handle the heat, then it’s time for them to exit stage left.
As you ascend the ladder of success, it’s important to be mindful of your actions. Your usual impulsive and courageous nature is a strength, but be careful not to harm others or play with fire. Step back, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and evaluate your relationships. Are you working well with others, or are you too focused on the prize even to notice those around you? Remember that money and possessions can only bring temporary happiness, but true love and passion for your work and relationships will fulfil you for a lifetime.
Taurus (The Bull) | April 20-May 20
Taurus, the Two of Swords card indicates that you are facing a challenging decision or situation this week, with the Eight of Cups making you feel like it’s time to move on from a job or relationship that is no longer serving you. The Devil is making this difficult. This could be a Capricorn in your life that you are hugely attracted to and find it difficult to stay away from even though you know they are no good for you. Or it could be that you want to move on but feel stuck, struggling to break a negative pattern, or being unable to refuse temptation. The Devil represents addiction, which could be to money, substances, sex, or even to someone who mentally or physically abuses you. If that’s the case, you know what you need to do. Breaking the chains won’t be easy, but you have people around you who will help. Turn to those you know will be honest with you — even if it’s brutal. Sometimes those with the sharpest tongue have the biggest hearts.
If the temptation is for something new, but you aren’t quite sure about whether it’s the right thing to do, take a step back and evaluate your situation objectively. You may feel stagnant where you are, but is the alternative too great a risk? Being ruthless is good in some circumstances, but think about what you could lose. If you are in a relationship and someone else has caught your eye, consider whether you want to risk losing what you have. You know you will be found out in the long run. If you’re unhappy in your relationship, do the honourable thing and end it before you hurt your partner and, ultimately yourself.
Gemini (The Twins) | May 21-June 21
Gemini, your heart is a heavy burden to bear this week. You might feel caught between the devoted and the devilish. Like Agent Cooper navigating the twists and turns of the Red Room, you’re navigating a complex emotional landscape. The potential love interests in your life are like the Black Lodge and the White Lodge, and you’re stuck in the middle, trying to figure out which is the right path for you right now. One — possibly a Capricorn — is someone who lights your F I R E, but you know they won’t stick around for long, and deep down, you know you’re only attracted to them because they remind you of someone else you used to know. They are The Devil; exciting, dangerous and sexy, but they’ll probably break your heart.
Think about what you really want right now. If you’re not looking to commit to anyone and just want some fun, go ahead, but don’t get too attached. If you are looking for emotional fulfilment, you won’t find it here. Remember, you don’t have to choose anyone. The Ten of Wands implies that you are often your own worst enemy, overthinking things and burdening yourself with responsibilities and obligations when there is no need to. If you need to get on your bike and go, do it. The Four of Cups suggests you might benefit from self-care and reflection. Take a break from the chaos and focus on yourself. It’s time to reassess your priorities and figure out what truly matters to you. Remember that you deserve to be loved and respected, and that starts with loving and respecting yourself.
In the end, the choice is yours, Gemini. Follow your heart, but be mindful of the consequences. Like Cooper, it’s time to embrace your inner guidance and trust that you’ll find your way through the darkness.
Cancer (The Crab) | June 22-July 22
Cancer, the Knight of Pentacles in your reading suggests that this week you may be focusing on building a stable foundation, whether in your finances, career, or personal life. However, the path to the White Lodge is not without obstacles. To get there safely, tap into your creative energy to find a unique and innovative way through. Unleash your imagination and try manifesting your goals by writing them down, keeping a diary or repeating a powerful mantra. You have got a light within you, and that is where you will find your power.
You are The Writer of your own destiny; you get to decide how things play out for you. Don’t be intimidated by bullies. Keep your head down, and stay focused. The Seven of Wands reminds you to assert yourself, but don’t be aggressive, stay cool and calm, and you’ll breeze through this. You are wise and experienced, so don’t let anyone knock your confidence. Don’t be seduced into thinking there is an easy way to achieve what you desire. There are no corners to cut when it comes to building something solid. Be honest and patient, and don’t do the dirty on anyone, and those around you will respect you. Soon enough, your relationships and business partnerships will flourish.
Leo (The Lion) | July 22-August 23
Leo, if you’ve looked in the mirror lately and not recognised yourself, it may be that you have been playing the part of someone else for too long, and you are yearning for when you can be your true self again. The Eight of Swords card often represents feeling trapped, stuck, or restricted in some way. It suggests that you may be experiencing a sense of powerlessness or helplessness in your life and that you may be struggling to see a way forward. If you are harbouring some guilty feelings about past actions or betrayals, you may feel like you deserve the unhappiness you feel. But to be free, you’ll need to face your fears and anxieties about what you did and learn to love yourself again.
The Moon suggests you may benefit from exploring your subconscious through meditation, journaling, or other reflective practices. This may help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your situation and allow you to confront and overcome your shadow self. Pretending things didn’t happen is not going to help you. There is a reason why you made bad decisions; you might have felt there was no other option, that it was a form of self-defence, revenge, or desperation. Until you explore the reasons why and forgive yourself, no one else will understand. Open your heart to someone you trust. There is a pure soul in your life like the Page of Cups who will listen to you without judgment, someone who is well respected by everyone. If they can forgive, then others will follow suit.
Don’t wait too long to take off the mask. The woods can be a dark and scary place, and you don’t want to get lost in them forever.
Virgo (The Virgin) | Aug 23-Sept 22
Virgo, this is such a great week for you! You are entering a time of happiness, stability and contentment, reflected by the Four of Wands. This could be in the form of family harmony, career success or feeling deeply in love. The Nine of Cups is often called the “wish card” because it represents emotional contentment and joy. It signifies that your deepest desires may be coming true and that you’re feeling a sense of enlightenment.
The Hermit, however, represents introspection, solitude, and spiritual growth. It denotes a period of self-discovery and that you may be seeking a deeper understanding of your place in the world. So this feeling of contentment may be found from within — being perfectly happy in your own company, not feeling that you need a significant other, a boss or family members to give you the recognition you deserve is perhaps the most liberating feeling you can have. Once you realise that being alone doesn’t mean you are lonely, you will wield great strength.
If you have a big social event coming up, such as a charity gala or a work party that you have organised, expect it to be a roaring success. Once the festivities have ended, take some time to reflect on your achievements, and focus on some much-needed self-care so that you can be ready for the next great adventure that awaits you. The universe is shining upon you, dear Virgo, so bask in the glow of its light and let it guide you towards your dreams.
Libra (The Scales) | September 23-October 23
Libra, there is a lot of masculine energy in your reading this week, with a sense of strong and assertive energy permeating your life. You may be giving off this vibe or another person in your life, such as a romantic partner, parental figure, boss or spiritual leader.
The Knight of Cups is a card of emotional balance and creativity. It suggests that you may be feeling in tune with your emotions and intuition and that you may be experiencing a sense of creative inspiration. This card can also represent a romantic, intuitive, and sensitive person. The Knight of Swords, on the other hand, is a card of intellectual energy and action. You may feel driven to pursue your goals and ideas and are using your intelligence and strategic thinking to overcome obstacles. This card can also represent a determined, assertive, and philosophical person.
With these two knights in your life, you might feel pulled in different directions. But fear not, because you also have the energy of The Director. This card symbolises leadership, authority, and control. You may find yourself in a position of power or influence, making important decisions that affect others. Alternatively, it could mean that you’re being called to take charge of a situation and navigate it successfully with your clever, logical mind.
Perhaps you have two people or situations that need equal care and attention this week, either in your personal life or at work. As you navigate these energies, things may get a little weird and scary, but remember that life is like a movie — each scene has its unique duration and purpose. You must be patient and watchful, especially in the quiet moments where you’ll learn the most about yourself and those around you. And in those moments of absurdity and darkness, may a smile be your umbrella.
Scorpio (The Scorpion) | October 24-November 21
Scorpio, this week you are exerting the Strength of Nadine when it comes to facing any new challenges that come your way. The Page of Pentacles hints at a new beginning, especially around work, study, or learning new skills. Maybe you are finally starting that new plant-growing business you’ve been dreaming of, but try to keep your head out of the clouds and your feet on the ground.
The Seven of Cups is a card that represents choice and illusion. You may have an abundance of opportunities in front of you, but don’t feel pressured to make a rash decision; you have time to carefully consider what is best for you and your future. Sit down with a smoked cheese pig and ponder your options.
If you have been hurt in love and are holding onto some bitterness, it’s time to move on. You need to forget the past and forgive in the present to be free in the future. While you might not feel that the person who hurt you deserves forgiveness, you are being kind to yourself by letting things go. Underneath it all, you know that connection was not right for you. Instead of mourning what you could never have had, celebrate what the future may hold. Digging yourself out of the shit shows how strong and resilient you are, and there is a like-minded soul out there for you, just waiting to be found. Remember, the unexpected is lurking around every corner. Embrace the mystery and the adventure that life has in store for you.
Sagittarius (The Archer) | November 22-December 21
Sagittarius, you are doing really well for yourself at the moment; you have financial independence and stability, which is a new experience for you, and it makes life so much easier but don’t get too obsessed with accumulating money or material possessions. Your fear of losing them may mean you miss out on other rewards in life. The Nine of Pentacles represents abundance and luxury, but what good is that if you can’t share it with anyone? The Four of Pentacles encourages you to find a healthy balance between security and generosity. Give some of your fortune to charity, or spend it on your loved ones. Is anything more rewarding than making life more comfortable for the less fortunate? You’ll find that the more you help others, the more positivity and good luck will come your way.
The Lovers card represents partnership and harmony — this could be romance, friendship, or business. You may have a choice to make concerning a relationship that aligns with your deepest values and beliefs. Listen to your heart and follow your intuition to find a true and meaningful connection. If you’ve recently emerged from a complex relationship, avoid the temptation to jump into something new too quickly. You may have a tendency to be attracted to dangerous situations, but remember that life is not always a party. Enjoy your independence and take some time to find yourself, don’t bite the bullet baby.
Capricorn (The Goat) | December 22-January 19
You’ve not had an easy time lately Capricorn. Discord has been around you, and it feels like you have been battered in every direction. The Five of Wands is a card that represents competition, conflict, and struggle, suggesting that you may be facing a situation where you feel like you’re constantly fighting for your place or position, perhaps in a relationship or in a work or social context. In the latter sense, this card encourages you to remain determined and focused, be mindful of how you engage with others, and find ways to collaborate rather than compete. In the case of romance, you might need to consider if it is worth fighting for. Should being in a relationship be this hard? True love is worth fighting for, but if it’s making you miserable, then it’s probably not true love. It certainly is a lesson, though, so take notice of what you learn from it.
The good news is that all of that hardship is coming to an end very soon. The Six of Swords represents transition and moving on from a difficult situation. You’re now in a space where you can move forward and make progress — you have had some space to think and heal. This card encourages you to trust in the journey and have faith that you will find a way through any challenges. Your spirituality and faith in goodness prevailing will light the way.
However, the Four of Cups cautions that there may be some emotional baggage you need to unpack before you can truly transcend. This card represents a sense of dissatisfaction and apathy, a feeling that you’re stuck in a rut. You may be longing for something more but struggling to find the motivation to pursue it. Don’t give up hope, dear Capricorn. Take some time to reflect on what truly matters to you, and be open to new opportunities and experiences. Trust that the universe has something wonderful in store for you, and you’ll find your way to a place of peace and dignity. Remember, the answers are often hidden in plain sight. Keep your eyes and heart open, and you’ll discover the path meant for you.
Aquarius (The Water Bearer) | January 20-February 18
Aquarius, you may be experiencing some level of success or recognition in your life as depicted by the Six of Wands, but there may be underlying challenges or difficult choices that you’re facing too. The Seven of Cups warns you not to get lost in fantasy and to stay grounded in reality. You may be facing a decision or a situation where it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not. The Five of Cups represents the sadness and regret that we may feel when our illusions are shattered and acknowledges that there may be some level of loss or disappointment that you’re experiencing — you will need to work through it before the despair consumes you.
You may have been betrayed by someone very close to you. Perhaps you always knew but turned a blind eye so as not to rock the boat, but now the truth is out in the open, and you can’t ignore it anymore. Having to face the pain and endure the suffering is daunting, and it’s natural to want to numb yourself and hide away, but that won’t help you. Try channelling your pain by turning it into something positive. Talk to others who have gone through similar situations, and help them as they face their own demons. They, in turn, will help you work through your grief. While it might not feel like it right now, the obstacles are the path, and the final destination is beautiful.
Pisces (The Fish) | February 19-March 20
Wow BOB Wow! This is a beautiful reading for you Pisces. The Two of Cups represents connection, partnership, and love, so a new romantic relationship may be on the cards or a deepening of an existing one. This card is an invitation to love. Embrace the journey ahead with an open heart, trust your intuition and bask in the blissful state of companionship.
The Queen of Wands illuminates your newfound confidence and passion for this particular person in your life, and you are right to, as the Queen of Pentacles’ grounded energy indicates a stable, long-term commitment is likely on the horizon. They embody a nurturing spirit and have an abundance of love to offer you. It’s clear that both of you have been through your fair share of heartache, but don’t let the past dim the spark of hope that this relationship brings. Trust that this person has good intentions, they want to love and support you in the way you deserve, and they only ask for the same in return. Remember to give each other the space and time to grow and to communicate honestly and openly with each other.
You don’t have to put on a façade with this person, as they appreciate and value the real you. Build your relationship on a foundation of friendship, and let it naturally blossom into something both wonderful and strange. Take it slow and steady, and savour every moment along the way. You two go together like cherry pie and coffee.
