The tarot has much wisdom to share with you this month so I’ll keep this brief.
You are loved. You are love. You are lovely. And we love you.
Much love to you,
P.S. If you’d like to book a personal reading please visit my website or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leo (Jul 24 – Aug 23) – The Sun
A beautiful pull for your birthday, a day when we celebrate our annual cycle around the sun. As you stop to contemplate another year on this planet take some time to acknowledge your place amongst the cosmos. You are a galactic starseed brought here to help raise the vibration and bring others into awareness. We are experiencing the mirage of separateness to learn about duality, growth and acceptance. I offer you the suggestion of study. Perhaps the Seven Hermetic Principles will appeal to you. Go deeper as you honor your existence and celebrate the bright, brilliant glow of the sun. It’s here to fuel you with its warmth. Enjoy the glow.
Virgo (Aug 24-Sep 22) – The Devil
As animals, worry keeps us safe. If we feel a threat or danger our body immediately moves into our reptilian brain, flooding our system with cortisol. We either experience flight or freight. And while this helped keep us out of harm’s way throughout the millennia, it’s proved to be our detriment in this evolved stage. Our intellect is what sets us apart from the remainder of the animal kingdom, but our brain can be our own worst enemy if we allow it. The Devil indicates a time of obsession. There is a part of you that falsely believes if you ruminate on the issue long enough or hard enough that the situation will magically resolve. Take action and let the rest go. And to get your mind off of things it’s time to phone a friend and ask how THEY are doing. When self obsessed the only cure is service and connection.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22) – Temperance
To temper something, to bring it into balance, takes time. Temperance often shows up when we are trying to rush things. It’s important to note that the Universe does not like to be micromanaged. They call it divine timing for a reason. Why aren’t you able to trust the process? Are you so intently living in the wreckage of your future that you’ve forgotten to embrace the bounty of miracles that lies at your feet? Acceptance is the answer to all of your problems today. While it’s normal to strive for greatness and want beautiful things, when does this need to acquire external objects cross the line into greed? What if you were happy, right now, with everything as it is. Can you unconditionally love yourself? Those around you? The materials or tools in your life that assist you each day? There is much to be grateful for. Patience and appreciation will bring you far right now.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 22) – The Hierophant
It’s hard to determine when the student becomes the teacher. That is the energy of the Hierophant. This wise archetype is here to offer their mentee their endless pool of knowledge. They lovingly share their expertise. This exchange magnifies and becomes richer when The Hierophant humbles themselves to understand they too must remain forever teachable. The student in their naivety often asks fascinating questions that leave the expert stumped. Who could you teach this month? Who could offer you a healthy education? The answers often come when our wounds are reopened. Why did that spark anger? Why did you get defensive? Why did that hurt your heart? There is something there. Lean into it and don’t run away. Have uncomfortable conversations. You’ll be so happy that you did.
Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 20) – The Emperor
The Emperor is the embodiment of the divine masculine. He offers order, rule and authority to the creativity and productive chaos the Empress provides. When these two powerful forces are in harmony there is so much magic and richness added to this existence. Unfortunately the divine masculine has been out of whack for eras. The ego took over and order morphed into control, condensation and anger. When you see two warring fragments this month, how can you offer a peaceful resolve? How can you embody your divine masculine? How can you provide a way out and through that provides as much kindness and compassion as possible? How can you rule your kingdom in a way that woos the divine feminine with respect? When we really embody the metaphysical principles of this card we are holding space for our creative and chaotic Goddesses and helping them shine.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20) – The Lovers
The card of duality, the Lovers reminds us of our primal human needs and desires. If you are single this would be a wonderful month to examine your relationship ideals. What attributes does your perfect mate embody? What are some of your non-negotiables? What do you look like in a healthy relationship? How do you show up? And if you’re already attached perhaps it’s time to unpack and examine these ideals as well. Are you showing up as the partner that you’ve always wanted to be? Are you settling for anything less than you deserve? Love is in the air this month dear Capricorn. Let your soul sway in the rhythmic dance of romance as you ebb and flow in relationship, not only with your lover, but with yourself.
Aquarius (Jan 21-Feb 19) – The Tower
I find that the Guides only break out the Tower card when we haven’t been listening. We didn’t heed their whispers or their warnings and they are now demanding our attention. Everything is being stripped down to the studs so we can begin again. Much like a snail between homes, we feel raw and exposed in this space. I promise you that divine destruction is always done with a purpose. This uncomfortability? Ask it what it wants. You are in the midst of a spiritual awakening which is not often easy. Your Guides are busy rebuilding your path as they didn’t like the road you were paving. That breakup? Yeah, it’s because they have someone better for you. Didn’t get the job? It was never yours. There is another opportunity around the bend. The only thing I do know when it comes to the chaotic cosmos who shape our reality is that it’s always done with love. They are simply rearranging things right now. Stay the course. This too shall pass.
Pisces (Feb 20-Mar 20) – Wheel of Fortune
The spotlight just fell upon your shoulders dear Pisces. What are you going to do with all this heavenly attention? The Guides have recently offered you many bountiful surprises. The Wheel of Fortune is a call to action. They’ve shown up and done their work. Now it’s time for you to do yours. Are you going to grab this opportunity by the horns and run with it? Or are you going to hide back in the shadows crushed under the falsity of self-doubt? They are asking you to remember who you are. It’s time to acquaint yourself with your Highest Self. While your super powers might scare you at first, they have been given to you as it’s time. It’s time to level up and step fully into your power. This is not only for you, but for all the other gorgeous souls who will benefit from your talents.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – Justice
The one thing we all seem to agree on lately is that “life isn’t fair.” Who decided to make that a credo? Yuck. And you know the only reason life isn’t fair? Us. Humans. We are so beautifully imperfect but this time we’ve really gone and effed it up. We’ve put all these rules in the wrong places to make people feel marginalized and small. How silly! We are ALL one. We will all return one day to the infinite abyss of love. It’s so fascinating that it seems so hard to tap back into that inner knowing. While you might not experience discirmation on a daily basis, do any of your friends? Are you showing up as an ally? Not just because it’s trendy, but because it’s the right thing to do? What are you doing when no one is watching, when the phone is turned off and you’re not blasting your actions across several social media platforms? How are you helping your fellow brothers and sisters fight against hate? How are you changing the discussions…in your own home?
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – The Star
Beautiful Taurus you look so lovely in the starlight. The card of hope, The Star reminds us of all the light we bring to the world. We are built in our creator’s likeness. And while our physical form might look radically different from the Creative Intelligence, the spiritual sentiment remains the same. You have been brought here to help others recognize their greatness. We all do this in so many different ways. We are all Healers. While you may or may not offer healing practices professionally, think of a time you kissed someone’s tears away. Brought a smile to a stranger’s face. Think back to a moment when you showed up for someone in crisis, when they needed you the most. In each of these majestic acts you were the embodiment of the Sunlight of the Spirit. You are a reflection of the Universe and your Guides are so proud of all the work you are doing. Shine brightly sweet angel and keep going. When you feel all hope is last simply call out for help. Your Guides can pick up on even the tiniest of whispers and they will always come to your side.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – The Fool
What ends must always begin again. The Fool is the protagonist in this arcanic journey. Clear of any prejudice or judgement, they greet the world with wonder and sparkle in their eyes. Their curiosity abounds and they fall in love with life all over again. I often think of the Fool as the place where bright, white, angelic light resides. It washes us clear of any societal constraints or self-inflicted blocks. It releases us from the bondage of self and unites us with the superconscious where we dance in the glory of the infinite pool of unconditional love. It supercharges us to do our very best thinking. It puts the ego on mute so that the Higher Self can run the show for a while. Harness this gorgeous energy. Use it to fuel your new big project or a trip. Or perhaps just use it as a time to cultivate a love story with Self. Give yourself whatever you need right now. The Universe cherishes you so.
Cancer (Jun 22-July 23) – The World
The storm clouds have parted and the sun shines once more. You are surrounded by gorgeous light beams in radiant hues all colors of the rainbow. The journey has been long and arduous, but you’ve made it through. You’ve ascended into a higher vibrational field where suddenly all the struggles make sense. If you didn’t experience each and every one of them you wouldn’t have embraced the lessons. Pain helps us wake up and get to work. It demands that we honor our shadows and shine light in the darkest of places. Enjoy this time sweet Cancer. You’ve worked hard for it. And even if it doesn’t feel like much has been accomplished, nothing could be further from the truth. Take this moment to pause, reflect and celebrate, even the small wins. The Universe is so proud of you. You are so loved.
