I’m drawing one card for each sign from the Tarot’s Major Arcana and the second from its elemental suit. E.g. since Virgo is an earth sign, one card is drawn from the Major Arcana and one from the Tarot’s earth suit, pentacles, for Virgo. (Standard disclaimer: Tarotscopes are for entertainment purposes only).
Virgo, August 23 – September 22: Judgment and the Ace of Pentacles. You’re being called to action, Virgo, and if you choose to take on the assignment, you can reap massive rewards. The Ace of Pentacles promises all sorts of goodies on the material realm. But manifesting takes work. Don’t expect it to necessarily come easily, but if you put the time in, it will happen.
Libra, September 23 – October 22: The Empress and the Two of Swords. You’ve got a decision to make, and the answer is there, if you’re receptive to it. This is a time to listen, really listen, to yourself and others.
Scorpio, October 23 – November 21: The Hierophant and the Six of Cups. If you find yourself yearning for the past or feeling out of step with the world and your own psyche, a little ritual might help. Meditate on the rituals from your childhood and ask yourself which might serve you now. And if you can get your friends to join in, so much the better!
Sagittarius, November 22 – December 21: The Star and the Knight of Wands. Channel your inner Sir Galahad! This month brings adventure, and yes, a little romance. But a true knight doesn’t wait for adventure to happen – he rides out in quest of it. No binge watching for thee, Sagittarius, if you want to win the prize.
Capricorn, December 22 – January 19: The Sun and the Ten of Pentacles. It’s hard to imagine a more auspicious combination of cards for the month. The Sun + the Ten of Pentacles = big success. So count your blessings and enjoy your moment in the sun. Tens are also the ends of cycles, with the promise of something new and exciting over the horizon.
Aquarius, January 20 – February 18: The Tower and the Six of Swords. This too shall pass. If life feels crazy now (and not in a good way), there may not be much you can do about it. But hang in there. Smooth waters lie ahead. The goal to surviving the madness is to keep your focus on what matters to you. Er, you do know what really matters to you, don’t you?
Pisces, February 19 – March 20: The High Priestess and the Page of Cups. Your watery intuition wants to play, seeker. So break out of your habitual processes (spiritual or otherwise) and have fun with them. Play helps you see things in new ways and get in closer touch with your inner mind. You do remember how to have fun, don’t you?
Aries, March 21 – April 19: The Emperor and the Eight of Wands. You can move mountains this month and in record time. But you’ll need to rely on your organizational skills to do it. Haphazard work is just… hazardous. Not that this reading is all about work – the wands speak to our creative energy, and that can be applied to any part of our lives.
Taurus, April 20 – May 20: The Hanged Man and the Eight of Pentacles. Work, work, work. You may feel you’re drowning in it this month, Taurus. But be of good cheer, because what you’re working towards is something awesome. And the more you fight against it, the more you’re going to get tangled up. So go with the flow, keep your nose to the grindstone, and know it is all worthwhile – for now, at least.
Gemini, May 21 – June 20: Justice and the Nine of Swords. Down with self-doubt, Gemini! It’s unwarranted. This card combination calls you to do justice to yourself. So take a deep breath, and jettison those worries. Try this mantra from the Yogi Bhajan: Bountiful am I. Blissful am I. Beautiful am I.
Cancer, June 21 – July 22: Death and the Four of Cups. Big change is coming whether you like it or not, and it is AWESOME. Or at least it will be, if you focus on the good stuff that on its way rather than the good stuff that’s moving into the past.
Leo, July 23 – August 22: The Fool and the Two of Wands. You stand at a crossroads. Which path to choose? The Fool tells us to follow our gut, go for it, and most importantly, enjoy the ride. And if it scares you, cover your eyes!
