Theme of the Week: The Hierophant
As the infamous Mr. Miyagi said, “Wax on, wax off.” The first week of September the tarotscope’s is all about observing and learning. You may even find yourself teaching others a thing or two, while you’re at it! So keep your ear to the ground and your eyes peeled—there is much to ingest. You might feel as if you’re going through a little growth spurt. If you have been contemplating furthering your education in an area of interest, now is the perfect time to start. This has strong potential to impact your future. Also, if someone comes to you for advice, don’t BS them. Make sure what you say is from the heart because they will be hanging on your every word.
Your Card: 2 of Swords
Decision making time, Leo. It all comes down to this. No more procrastinating and beating around the bush. You’ve been contemplating something, meanwhile the sands of time are running out. Whatever your decision, keep your intentions pure, walk with intelligence to the best of your ability and stick to your guns. You may be worried this could end in major heartbreak or disappointment but no risk, no reward.
Your Card: 3 of Swords
You’re right ahead of Leo, Virgo! Something hasn’t panned out as you hoped, and you might be feeling a sense of doom and gloom. Do not feel like you have to take action all the time. Sometimes, the best thing you can do is ride out the storm, then revel in the calm waters that follow. Acceptance, peace and tranquility are just around the corner.
Your Card: Strength
At times, it seems as if there are recurring themes in our lives. That’s because there are. It is said that we are destined to repeat lessons until we finally learn from them. Only then can we move on to the next chapter. There is something in your life you are clinging onto, Libra. True strength doesn’t always lie in holding on, sometimes being strong means letting go. Remember, release isn’t always permanent, but just like a sigh, it can be a form of relief.
Your Card: The Star
You have big dreams, Scorpio. Like the 80’s song by Timbuk 3, you’re dreaming of a future so bright, you gotta wear shades. Success is steadily on your mind and this week is a great time to make big investments toward that success. Things may seem far-fetched or out of reach right now but trust that for you, “objects are closer than they appear.”
Your Card: Page of Pentacles
There is something, or someone, you greatly admire. At some point, you decided to make yourself an observer, and simply look on from afar. It is safer that way, after all. But since when have you preferred the safe route, Sag? Though it is unlike you to stay standing still, something deep down is yelling, “Danger Will Robinson!” Go with your instincts for now, there’s a reason you have them. You’ll know when the time is right to make a move. Spoiler alert: In this case, that might be never.
Your Card: The Sun
Brighten up, Cap! You’re going to have a beautiful week! Warm sun and fun! Or at least it will start out that way. You might get so caught up in the good vibes that you wear yourself down by week’s end. Pencil in a few ample disco naps and you’ll be good as gold! You have a habit of getting caught up in the seriousness of life, so let this week’s positive energy fill you with the feels and maybe store up some of those sweet memories for a rainy day!
Your Card: 4 of Wands
Considering a rekindling of some sort, Aquarius? Make sure you are grounded in reality, now. Your daydreams may be romanticizing an anticipated event. Not to say this will not go well, but try not to set the bar too high. Take it for what it is, and be realistic about what it’s not. The outcome will likely be a positive one, just perhaps not in the way you expected. Enjoy the highs and forget about everything else.
Your Card: Queen of Cups
Pisces, Pisces, Pisces. Here you go again. While your capacity for unconditional love is admirable, you still need to recognize when something is toxic in your life. It is not enough for you to only recognize it, but you must remove it. If you can’t bring yourself to 86 that person, place or thing, I implore you to at least consider limiting your time with it. By this, I mean expending any energy—whether it be thoughts or actions. This is vital for you right now. Even the unsuspecting has the power to change the trajectory of your life.
Your Card: 7 of Swords
You may not feel like honesty is the best policy right now, Aries. While this may work for you, if others find out what you have up your sleeve it will likely not bode too well. Be extra careful in your dealings this week. Password protection: ON. Maybe sleep with some gloves on too, just to be safe. Someone may have their eye on you, just waiting for you to slip up, so tread lightly. You may be in dangerous waters, but if anyone can navigate them it’s you. Best of luck to you, Aries!
Your Card: Ace of Cups
Are all these feelings making you uncomfortable, Taurus? Face it, it can be nice to lose control once in awhile, especially if you’re in a safe space. This week, trust that you are in the company of someone you can rely on with your deepest fears, desires, secrets, cares- pretty much anything. You’ll already know who this applies to when you suddenly get hit with a case of diarrhea-of-the-mouth. It may be surprisingly therapeutic for you to realize that it is possible to trust someone completely and to speak from the heart unapologetically. Those on the receiving end will appreciate your candor and may even reciprocate. Even if you end up doing most of the talking, expect this bond to reach new depths.
Your Card: The Hanged Man
Socrates said, “All I know is that I know nothing.” There may be some situation in your life that has been hanging over your head, Gem. You are starting to gain some perspective and at this point you have enough ideas and opinions on the matter to fill up a room. While that is all good and well, is this really the best application of your time? Or are you just running in place? Put that super brainpower to good use, and start doing something that matters—not something that is going to just keep your brain busy. This way, you will finally feel like you have something to show for your efforts, with the added benefit of a major distraction.
Your Card: Knight of Wands
You are on fire this week, Cancer! Let your passion be your guide and let no doubts get in your way. You’re feeling extra inspired, motivated and ready to go! A new project or goal rears its head and in doing so, lights a little fire under your culo! Go with that feeling, Cancer, you have the potential to do big things. Be sure this is something you are ready to commit to because once you pledge your allegiance, you may be attached to it for awhile.
