Theme of the Month: 7 of Cups
This month is all about making our dreams a reality. It is also a call to dream bigger than perhaps originally planned. Things unfold much to your advantage and have the potential to work out better than you thought they would. But you must learn to accept these gifts from the universe as they present themselves. You always have a choice. There will always be other options. Don’t be afraid to go for the best. It isn’t too good to be true. You deserve it! You have a distinct chance to initiate a very happy and fulfilled future, so don’t neg yourself.
Your Card: The Empress
Leo, know your worth, and do not settle for less than the best! You know deep down when you are settling for something versus when it is truly what you deserve and desire. Use your intuition to make those decisions this month and don’t be afraid to have patience. Things may need a little time to develop. As they say, “Good things come to those who wait.” This could not ring truer for you now. Treat yourself as you would ideally like others to treat you – respectfully, sweetly, generously – whatever it is you value most. And, likewise, only accept that kind of treatment from the people in your life. This is a time to step into your power and take your rightful seat on the throne. It is not time to downplay your strengths, beauty, or power. Harness them and present yourself in all your glory.
Your Card: 9 of Pentacles
Virgo, you are attempting to fill voids in your life with “stuff.” It’s time to take stock and recognize what has real value and what you are just using as a distraction. Do some spring cleaning and leave only what sparks genuine joy. Once you have cleared out the riffraff, you will develop a new appreciation for those things that truly have worth. You may feel that you appreciate them now, but as a whole, this will bring a whole new kind of perspective and awareness to your life. In many ways, you have been very lucky. It can be all too easy to take what we have for granted and focus on where we are lacking. You may feel like you need support now, but in reality, you are perfectly placed.
Your Card: Knight of Swords
Libra, things are moving fast for you now. It’s almost as if this is an out-of-body experience and you’re watching everything happen from the outside, looking in. I’m seeing this month move quite quickly in terms of developments and experiences. You may get caught up in an accusation or feel as if you need to correct something immediately. You, or someone else involved, have done something that you didn’t believe would escalate to this degree, but due to the implications of the situation, you will feel like immediate action needs to be taken. There will be a lot more thought involved here, regardless if any moves are actually made. I am seeing a snap decision prior to any real, serious consideration. Try not to jump the gun. Keep in mind you may not have to move quite as fast as you think you do.
Your Card: Wheel of Fortune
Scorpio, things are really beginning to shift and change for you. You are starting to gain a better handle on your life and move it in a much more intentional direction. If you aren’t already, this is a great time to dig deeper into whatever subject matters interest you, or can benefit your goals in some way. Watch YouTube tutorials, read books, look at how other people are doing the things that you want to be doing and living life how you want to be living it. It isn’t about copying what others have done, but rather taking what you learn and making it your own. With all this knowledge comes the power to create and move in a unique direction that suits you, specifically.
Your Card: The Fool
Sag, as of recent, you may have been feeling like you have been everyone’s biggest supporter, but the tide is beginning to change. Now you have set out on your own journey for yourself. It isn’t that you are forgetting everyone you’ve met along the way, you just need to focus on your own experience and personal development right now. Some may recognize this and give you your space, while others may think you are simply hiding away from them. Don’t worry about it, either way. You just need to do you, without further ado. Find where true happiness and joy lie and recalibrate your future goals accordingly. This is your intended purpose at this moment. Embrace freedom and revel in lightheartedness.
Your Card: 3 of Wands
Capricorn, you have one foot out the door, but in which direction are you planning on going, exactly? It seems as if you have an idea of where you want to be headed, but not actually where you’re going. At this time, you need to let go of all your preconceived notions about what lies ahead of you. There is no way to anticipate your future experiences. You can only try to be as prepared as possible for them. Even still, try not to get too caught up in all the details. Sometimes, you just need to let life happen to you rather than attempt to control or dictate how it happens. For now, take things a step at a time. Once you find your footing, you will gain enough confidence to begin running headfirst into your future.
Your Card: 4 of Cups
Aquarius, you are being quite picky right now. It may be time to have a little bit more of an open mind in a certain situation. Give something that may have lost its appeal a try, or at least the chance to develop before you write it off. Its return-on-investment potential may not be so obvious or quick at first. But, if you keep starting from scratch with new ideas, people, or places, and don’t invest yourself into any one of them fully, you will never be able to reach any satisfactory kind of return. At the same token, if you know something is not for you – it’s not for you. Don’t let yourself be swayed by someone else’s coercion and reasoning. Your values and priorities may differ.
Your Card: 5 of Wands
Pisces, you are fighting tooth-and-nail for something you believe in. I see you expending a lot of effort on this. You are leaving no stone unturned, and no angle unacknowledged. This will ensure your victory, but at what cost? Others may be proud of you and support you, but will you truly be proud of yourself? These are the questions you need to ask yourself now. What will make you happy versus what are you doing in order to make those around you happy? Are you just “doing it for the ‘gram?” At this time, you need to figure out what is going to feel truly fulfilling for you as a person, rather than invest in what only gives you a sense of momentary validation.
Your Card: The Sun
Aries, you are feeling really proud of yourself this month and you aren’t afraid to show it. I would say that you are the king/queen of humble-bragging for August but, honestly, there is nothing humble about it. Let your freak flag fly without any apologies! Use your added enthusiasm this month to inspire others and to show them that if you can do it, anyone can. Sometimes, you just need to throw caution to the wind and do you, boo. That is exactly what you’re up to now and it is lighting the way towards ensuing happiness. Let your zealousness take the lead without doubt or hesitation. You are headed in a glorious direction.
Your Card: 8 of Swords
Taurus, you are holding a lot back now. For many of you, this due to the fact that there is something about a situation you don’t fully trust or believe in. You are keeping a lot to yourself, but in the process, you are also blocking yourself off from gaining new information or anything that could potentially help you further. Therefore, you have no way to move past the point you’re at currently. It is only going to weigh heavier on your mind and become more stressful because there’s no movement happening in either direction. Furthermore, because you are closing yourself off, you don’t have any way to know how to take action from here, even if you wanted to. In order to move forward, you’ll need to take a risk and let your guard down.
Your Card: The Magician
Gemini, you are the master of mind games this month. This may start out as trying to control or manipulate a situation, but if you find that you aren’t able to do that, it looks as if you decide that you may as well have some fun in the process. The irony here, though, is that while you are busy playing games, you’re unintentionally lifting someone up and putting them into a place of power. Likely, the position that you were vying for. The good news is that I see you achieving success along the same level as this person, just in a different way. And I’m hearing that what transpires in August wasn’t your conscious intention, but it is what you ended up manifesting for yourself. This is to say, whatever does happen, wasn’t your original, ideal situation, but it turns out to work for you quite well.
Your Card: 6 of Pentacles
Cancer, someone is giving you the benefit of the doubt this month over someone else, or some other option. I feel as if they really want to believe in you – they do believe in second chances. I’m also hearing that this could be reversed, where you may desire to give someone another opportunity but, due to the risk involved, you are watching closely to be sure it is worth giving your energy to. “The proof is in the pudding” and you (or they) are observing closely. The potential for a solid foundation and stable future lies completely in your hands now, whether it looks that way or not from your perspective. Your decisions, actions, and intentions in August will have quite an impact on overall growth. Be decided and positive of what you want in order to fully commit to it and eventually gain a most fortunate and fruitful outcome. Right now, there is more at risk than you may realize.
