August 2022 Tarotscopes
(Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Ahh, my passionate Fire Signs, the month of August is calling for some much-needed balance. Maybe you're feeling unstable, being irresponsible with money or just feeling like there's tension in your day-to-day tasks. The 2 of Pentacles Reversed is showing that you need to commit to taking small steps in order to get back into alignment. Whether that means taking more days to rest or doing things in moderation, flexibility is needed, and this will be a time for you to learn what's meant for you and what's not meant for you.
The Emperor is pointing to the fact that you're falling away from structure, and this is directly contributing to the instability you've been feeling lately. Now is the time to recognize your power, empower yourself and take action based on your priorities, no one else's. Taking the lead on bringing more organization into your life will help drive you back into a state of harmony. The 8 of Pentacles emphasizes this focus on structure in hopes of helping you trust that the intention and energy you put in will help you achieve your goals. This card reminds you to do what you love while also being productive. Create a new morning routine, go back to the gym, or commit to making a weekly schedule for yourself. In this way, structure serves as a form of self-care.
As you find your way back towards equilibrium remember to be open to new experiences. The Page of Cups brings you the message to have more fun and to invite more love. When you start a new task try to approach it with a sense of curiosity and beginner's mind. Use the structure of The Emperor to bring yourself into balance and this message of having more fun to get back to that playful state along the way. There is more than enough room for both.
(Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Hello Earth Signs, your typical grounded nature seems to be replaced with impatience and this month will be a time for getting back to moderation, slowing down, and trusting in divine timing. Temperance brings about healing, harmony and balance letting you know that it is okay to ask the Universe for guidance. Now is the time to surrender and give your trust over to the universe to open up the flow of receiving their guidance.
The King of Cups is calling you out for some much-needed self-care because it looks like you've been starving yourself of emotional nourishment lately. Avoiding your own emotional needs and being generous to everyone but yourself is catching up to you. The King of Cups asks you to listen to your heart in order to take action from a place of love. Whether that shows through setting boundaries when needed or being more compassionate to yourself, some empathy will go a long way with bringing emotional stability. The 2 of Pentacles Reversed reinforces the message of imbalance where it is crucial for you to loosen your grip on the need to control by surrendering to the current. This will allow for the Universe's agenda to unfold and although it may not be what you've imagined, accepting this energy may help you recognize opportunities that are right in front of you.
As a whole, it looks like this month will definitely be about slowing down as a way to pause and recover. The 4 of Swords suggests that a time of introspection and rest will create space for new perspectives, intuitive messages, and a much deeper understanding of yourself and your emotional processes. Only you can choose this relaxation for yourself, so try to carve out time to do things that calm your nervous system like mediating or spending time alone. It's hard to step away from always being on the go, but this will be necessary for you to find your way back to love and compassion.
(Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Happy August Air Signs, you're not going to want to hear this, but it looks like you may be delaying your own abundance lately and that's gotta change. The Ace of Wands Reversed shows your hesitation towards taking action that's rooted in your fear of the unknown. Holding onto the nostalgia of the past is something I'm notorious for as a Libra, but I'm learning that this only prevents new opportunities and new passions from emerging. Whether you're lacking self-trust or self-confidence, it looks like you're not recognizing your own strength, so what's limiting your ability to be bold?
The Empress represents the abundance of self-trust that you're currently low on, but it's an amazing sign that she came up. The Empress is here to assure you that you do attract abundance, something you may have forgotten. This is a time to become more attuned with all of the small wins, to be more creative and to return back to that creative nature as a form of self-love. You may have lost your optimism or your appreciation for the amazing witty Air Sign you are, but you are always taken care of. Once you realize how connected everything is, you can drop your overly critical nature and allow for gratitude to flow. The 7 of Pentacles is appearing to hit the message of patience and growth on the head. You're on the right path, but you've got to believe and trust in your prosperity before the material aspect shows itself. As you pause to appreciate your progress, no matter how small, you'll notice how each step propels you forward and helps you become more aware of how these advances benefit your overall goals.
The 6 of Pentacles bears some advice for you Air Signs. Now is the time to give your trust to the unknown instead of fearing it. Giving away your need to control opens the flow of prosperity and may assist with appreciating yourself more than ever before. Taking risks and seeing for yourself that unknown outcomes don't necessarily mean bad outcomes will help you move away from the shelter you've built living in the past as of late.
(Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Water Signs, this month there is a beautiful message showing up as you learn to be more confident and compassionate towards yourself. As we enter Leo season it's only fitting that the Strength card appeared for you as it sheds light on your progress with accepting, collaborating, and releasing judgement of yourself. Your willingness to push onward is shining bright right now. Continuing to recognize your strength and trusting those around you will be crucial for you to keep this momentum flowing.
The Queen of Pentacles presented herself to remind you of something you are currently overlooking: Everything that you have done, sacrificed, and the work you've put in has got you to where you are today. Take a pause to give yourself the pat on the back that you deserve. With that said though, you are currently surrounded by immensely supportive people that are aligned with where you are, and where you want to go. Trust that these people are the key to assisting you to get through doors you never imagined you'd be stepping into. As much as you like to do things on your own, collaboration with your community is integrated into your journey. This could be as simple as sharing your ideas and a friend connecting you with someone in their network of contacts that can easily make that idea a reality.
The Magician closes this reading to remind you that you have manifested this life, you have manifested the people around you and you can TRUST them. You can TRUST your intuition and your sense of discernment. Follow those random ideas and take inspired action, they came up for a reason, and The Magician is telling you that everything will always fall right into place, and into alignment.
