With a New Year on the horizon, it’s time to see what the tarot cards have in store.
It’s time to let go of what no longer serves you, build on what works, and face 2023’s arrival with confidence and power.
Forget the refrain of ‘New Year, new me,’ and love the you that’s already doing amazing things. Work on a best version of yourself – with a little help from the stars – to grow.
Ahead you’ll find your star sign’s tarot horoscope forecast for the year ahead, with three cards drawn: one for overall predictions, one for work and money, and one for love and relationships.
Let them guide you through 2023…
March 21 to April 20
Tarot card for Aries to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Five of Swords
Meaning: Buckle up for a sparky ride, one with a few bumps. February, June and October may bring challenges which actually are signals pointing towards the things you need to address, so don’t ignore them.
Any conflict or stress you endure this year can be resolved by your own hand – know that and trust in yourself, your intuition and your solutions. Face things head on.
Nothing is going to stop you from building the life you desire and deserve, you just have to tackle a few little gremlins along the way (and you love a fight anyway, it gets the blood pumping!).
Tarot card for Aries for work and money in 2023 – Page of Swords
Meaning: The Page of Swords shows the key to managing your finances in 2023 (and those same months may bring a reminder of this) is being consistent and sticking to a game plan.
Consistency and sustainability are key words here. Automate and consolidate your bills and debt. Budget where your income goes. Set aside what you can when you can. And march ahead, sticking to the plan and letting your well-worked-out strategy play out.
If the opportunity comes along to learn something new, take a professional course or get free advice from a mentor- take it with both hands. What you learn this year could get you ahead.
Tarot card for Aries for love and relationships in 2023 – Eight of Cups
Meaning: Put aside friendships, work colleagues, and even love interests who have wasted your time, let you down, been disloyal or even worse.
Let them all go. No regrets and no dithering, Aries.
The Eight of Cups reveals this year will bring many new connections (especially with Water signs – Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) which far exceed the potential and fulfilment capacity of the people you’ve left behind. They will be replaced by far better suitors, supporters, mentors, friends and inspiring guides. Be open and welcoming to new faces.

April 21 to May 21
Tarot card for Taurus to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Five of Wands
Meaning: The Five of Wands brings interesting opportunities all year round (especially in April, August and December) which initially may look and feel like problems or obstacles.
So don’t be afraid of the issues you encounter and don’t back off from them. Head towards them with enthusiasm to discover what they really mean, what they’ll demand of you, and where the solution to them will take you.
I think you’ll look back at 2023 and see how far you came because of the things you overcame. Time to be brave, positive and bold. You got this.
Tarot card for Taurus for work and money in 2023 – Three of Wands
Meaning: Adopt an opportunistic mindset to making more money and increasing your revenue in 2023. The Three of Wands urges spontaneity, good fortune, fast responses, seizing the moment, making something out of nothing.
See everything you encounter in your work environment (and maybe beyond) as a chance to live, learn and earn more. Ask for more tasks, broaden your scope, look at side lines, review your talents and what you could make of them, keep an open mind to short-term or freelance projects or contracts.
Lots of little rocks can form one big rock this year, like a portfolio of work that adds up to a nice little earner. And be firm with yourself about online spending splurges (you know what I mean). Try to put a boundary of this habit – time or spend-wise.
Tarot card for Taurus for love and relationships in 2023 – Page of Cups
Meaning: Pages can indicate children so perhaps this is a year that children will be very important to you – whether that be your own, or growing your family, or welcoming new family members.
Pay attention to the little people in your world and help them see the world as a magical, positive, wonderful place.
In love, if you’re single, a younger Water sign (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) may cross your path and sweep you away with their charisma and creativity. If you’re attached, you will rediscover your sparks for each other by doing creative, imaginative, out there new things together. Start a joint hobby or travel often.

May 22 to June 21
Tarot card for Gemini to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Eight of Swords
Meaning: A liberating one! The Eight of Swords sees you wrestling with your own twin self, fighting against limiting self beliefs or echoes of shame or guilt for things long past.
You are tired of the mental chatter and self torture you put yourself through and seek new ways of addressing this (meditation, distraction, creativity, affirmations etc).
It takes time, but every day it gets a little better and, by October, you really feel like you’ve turned a corner, that you can control your thoughts so much better and are kinder to yourself by default.
Tarot card for Gemini for work and money in 2023 – Page of Wands
Meaning: Experimentation is the key to success in 2023. Strategic trials which seek to explore your talents, strengths, scope, potential and future priorities.
Don’t think – but do. Make up little trials or projects which test an idea or option and schedule them throughout the year. Set strong deadlines and criteria so you don’t spiral into doing too much or carrying forward lots of stuff. Each must have an end point.
Review the successes and do more of them! You can totally revamp your career and earning potential this way.
Tarot card for Gemini for love and relationships in 2023 – Six of Wands
Meaning: The Six of Wands is a magical card about victory, success, being in the right place at the right time.
It celebrates your story so far, asks you to have no regrets because you are right where you’re meant to be at, and reveals that the year ahead will bring more joy, prosperity, love and success in your relationship world. Be a bright light for others, be generous, be kind, be helpful. Keep being you.
Fire signs are good for you this year (Leo, Aries, Sagittarius). Let them inspire you and give you their powerful fiery energy to help you win.

June 22 to July 23
Tarot card for Cancer to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Page of Wands
Meaning: This is a year of experimentation and learning by doing – no pressure, no expectations, no desire to get it right first time.
Simply join in, have a go, see how it goes, decide if its for you or not, and move on to the next thing. Keep what works, discard what doesn’t.
Use this approach across all life areas, take this innovative and open mindset into your work, finances, friendships, creative projects, relationships, hobbies and fitness. Live and learn, literally.
Tarot card for Cancer for work and money in 2023 – Judgement
Meaning: A few wake up calls will come your way this year, life changing ones which help you to live more aligned to your means and also recognise ways to expand your revenues and make the most of what you have.
A more shrewd, sensible, pragmatic and smart approach emerges, born of hardship and mistakes, because you have made errors with your money and you want to do better. Consolidate, budget, research, invest.
The same outlook applies to work. Let new insights and wisdoms emerge and act on them, don’t keep on doing the same old thing. A new role, or new aspect to your existing one, is very likely.
Tarot card for Cancer for love and relationships in 2023– The Hierophant
Meaning: Friendships and mentors are really important to you in 2023, and you seek to be around people who can counsel you wisely, offer support and have like-minded ideals and values.
You look to join clubs, forums, classes and workshops. You contribute locally. You want to be a part of something. Your spiritual side leads you into new bonds as well.
And, in love, if you’re single, then a Taurean could light up your world. If you’re attached then this card can signal commitment – engagement, moving in, marriage or a growing family. You are settling down and feeling secure.

July 24 to August 23
Tarot card for Leo to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – The Empress
Meaning: A beautiful, loving, passionate and people-orientated year ahead awaits you, one in which close friends, love and family play a huge role in your sense of security, identity and contentment.
The Empress brings us back to basics – family, home, pets, friends, lovers, good food and drink, nature, creativity. The best things in life are free!
This card can also denote pregnancy and fertility, so you might have a growing family. Love is all around you, at any rate, so enjoy your relationship world.
Tarot card for Leo for work and money in 2023 – Eight of Cups
Meaning: Whatever has not worked out in the past is going to be replaced and followed by far, far better opportunities.
This is a good year to make a move based on an old ambition or role you missed out on. Look back and see if any second chances are lurking in the wings. If not, then dust yourself on and move on because new openings are coming your way – fantastic ones.
The months of March, August and December look great. Money-wise, be sensible, limit your splurges and keep a check on your budget.
Tarot card for Leo for love and relationships in 2023 – Five of Wands
Meaning: Although relationships are important and magical this year, that’s not to say there won’t be some conflict or change. In fact, that is perhaps what makes this such a lively, passionate and dynamic part of your life right now.
Any issues that arise, face them head on, and tackle them honestly and compassionately. If you lose people, so be it, it’s meant to be. If you repair things and move on stronger than ever, even better. You will be tested, but not found wanting. Things will strengthen because of pressure points.
Fellow Fire signs look good for you in 2023 – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.

August 24 to September 23
Tarot card for Virgo to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Nine of Coins
Meaning: You are going to make material changes this year that set you up for long-term success, wealth and reward.
Think about your future, think about the big rocks you want to work on, and make a long-term plan of action.
Health, work, home and money are under the spotlight, and you can start making real, sustainable shifts in all of these areas, laying the foundations for a secure and happy future. Think about the long game and use that vision to shape your decisions.
Tarot card for Virgo for work and money in 2023 – The Devil
Meaning: Stop falling prey to old habits, self-limiting beliefs, or negative patterns. Resist the easy way, the path of least resistance, the short cut, the tempting here-and-now option that you know, deep down, doesn’t do you any favours in the long run.
If you feel stuck then do something about it. If you don’t like certain aspects of work then address them. If you want to earn more then research your options. If you lack confidence or a specific skill then read up, take a class, tuner into a podcast.
Financially, look at your spending habits with an objective eye and make improvements if you see things which trip you up. It’s a year of overcoming old demons.
Tarot card for Virgo for love and relationships in 2023 – Eight of Coins
Meaning: Put the work into the relationships that matter most to you and be the change you wish to see there, lead by example.
The Eight of Coins shows that some close bonds feel a little strained, they have been pressure-tested, or things have shifted. Don’t give up on people. Don’t let things drift into deeper waters. Arrest the slide and make a change yourself.
Work on it. Things can radically and swiftly improve, breakthroughs are closer than you think. Your relationships will respond positively to the efforts you make in 2023, so invest your time.

Tarot card for Libra to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Four of Coins
Meaning: You are ready to break out, shake it up, change the game, rip up the script and generally bring new energy and opportunities into your life.
You are ready to make everything different to what it was in 2022. You feel it’s time to be empowered and liberated from old habits, duties, ideas, commitments and bonds.
The Four of Coins shows that you got a bit bored with some things in 2022 and you’re resolved to renew and revitalise them in 2023.
Tarot card for Libra for work and money in 2023 – Nine of Wands
Meaning: Don’t let anything get in your way this year, Libra. Don’t let obstacles or issues faze you because you do have all of the answers, as well as the power and wherewithal to tackle anything that occurs.
Nine of Wands reassures you that, although the first part of the year may present a few challenges, you will overcome everything and sail on to a second half of the year that is smooth, harmonious and prosperous.
Aim to get all the trickies tackled by June. Make April a big problem-solving month. Face into anything blocking you.
Tarot card for Libra for love and relationships in 2023 – Two of Wands
Meaning: You are always making new friends, acquaintances and even attracting new suitors. It’s that Venus-y charm of yours! The only downside is that you can end up with a few too many hangers on or people you liked but maybe not so much over time.
The Two of Wands reminds you that relationships use up energy and you don’t have a bottomless resource of it, so choose your friends and loves wisely.
Consciously prioritise who you want to focus on in 2023. New loves could come in the shape of sexy Fire signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. April and August look like high times for your love life.

Tarot card for Scorpio to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Nine of Cups

The Nine of Cups is a cosmic wish pass, spend it on something heartfelt and powerful, something that could change your life for the better.
Be it money, love, work or family, focus on this wish single-mindedly from now till March and let the Universe help you manifest this desire. Anything can, and will, happen! Good luck.
Tarot card for Scorpio for work and money in 2023 – Temperance
Meaning: Many changes in our life are circumstantial and are done to us, but some come from within, from our own internal shifts in perspective, priority or values.
Temperance shows your heart and mind are shifting this year, you’re coming to a new set of priorities which will unleash other changes and decisions. Maybe it’s about how or where you want to live. Maybe it’s about your choice of career. Maybe it’s about your financial commitments and management.
Let the changes unfold within before you take any action. This is important.
Tarot card for Scorpio for love and relationships in 2023 – Knight of Swords
Meaning: Sparky, dynamic and challenging Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) look on the cards for you in love this year ahead, perhaps even someone you initially don’t like or have some conflict with.
First impressions don’t necessarily tell the whole story here. In other relationships, review the power dynamics. Review who has the upper hand and how equal and balanced your bond is.
Strive to make things fair, establish a healthy give and take, make sure you get what you need and deserve.

Tarot card for Sagittarius for work and money in 2023 – Four of Cup
Meaning: Don’t let the FOMO bite! Don’t be so intent on pursuing every opportunity, invitation, or opening that you cast off and miss out on the riches, events, ideas, and energy right under your nose.
You can be too focused on the untested new at the expense of the proven old.
The Four of Cups asks you to review and exploit what you’ve currently got on your plate before adding to, or changing, it.

Meaning: The Ace of Cups is a magical love card, predicting a new love that could re-affirm your whole lust, and appreciation, for life.

Whatever the circumstances or status, your love life is set to burst into flames of passion in 2023.

The Two of Swords urges you to make 2023 all about decision-making. See this as a pivotal year where the choices you make set you up for the coming five to 10 years even!

Meaning: Enjoy yourself more! The Three of Cups is about pleasure, living life to the max because it’s short and we’re just lucky to even be here.
Life shouldn’t be all about work, work, work (I know you love to graft, Cap). Make sure you’re enjoying your rewards and earnings, that there’s a reason to work so hard. And bring more fun and joy into your working day wherever you can.
Money-wise, invest in things which boost your mood, create great memories, spread pleasure and love, and can reward you with more than just a one-off blast.
Enjoy what you earn, spend it shrewdly, don’t work too hard, and have fun along the way. Take a lovely holiday – maybe either (or all) in March, July and November.
Tarot card for Capricorn for love and relationships in 2023 – Six of Coins
Meaning: Friendships matter a great deal to you this year, as well as loyal and loving family members. You draw closer to those who have supported and been good to you and you feel like it’s time to pay back somehow.
The Six of Coins represents good karma, random acts of kindness, being generous, helping others without thought of your own return. Live like this in 2023 and feel the love all around you. Start from your closest relationship and work outwards.
For single Caps, other Earth signs look super glow-y (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo) and the months of January, May and September could well bring the love you yearn for.

January 22 to February 19
Tarot card for Aquarius to reveal what kind of year 2023 will be – Ace of Swords
Meaning: Your Astro symbol is the water bearer which is meant to reflect your honesty and purity. You are a clear-eyed and truthful person and living with truth is important you.
No time for faking, falsehoods, games, or leading people on. You want to wipe the slate clean, get stuff off your chest and live authentically in 2023, in line with who you are and what you want to do with your life – and anyone who doesn’t like that, well, perhaps it’s time they got out of the way.
Be prepared for change and transformation, but it’s all to your own design. Time to be a bit selfish.
Tarot card for Aquarius for work and money in 2023 – The Fool
Meaning: A new beginning awaits in 2023, a major new direction which feels exciting and hopeful.
It is likely to start around Spring and marks a long term change which will take months and years to truly build, but the journey is fun and enlivening so that’s okay. This is all part of your new truth mission.
Why do work you don’t like or aren’t suited to? Why spend this large amount of time doing something unfulfilling or unrewarding? Find your passion and pursue it. This will lead to a new financial era too, a new way of making money and managing it.
Tarot card for Aquarius for love and relationships in 2023 – The Tower
Meaning: Some relationships might not bear the weight of your new, authentic lifestyle and the choices you make to manifest it.
That’s okay. Not everyone in our world is meant to stay the entire course. Don’t be sad or angry or resentful. They have their life to live too.
That said, it’s all for the best in the long run. The Universe is helping to clear out your life of what is not needed for the future so that new people and relationships can emerge, which do suit who you are. Let those who want to go, go. It’s okay.
