To mark the start of August, one of our psychics has chosen a different tarot card for each star sign to represent how the month could unfold. We believe Tarotscopes are a simple way to create a life of peace, meaning and prosperity, plus it’s an opportunity for people to learn more about the definitions of tarot decks. Below are all of the cards that are chosen for the month of August 2017.
*All cards pictured in this blog post are from the famous Rider-Waite Tarot Card deck.*
ARIES (March 21st – APRIL 19)
Keywords: Personal development, learning, self-discovery
Don’t shy away from self reflection this month, Aries. Taking some time to learn new things will do you a world of good, even if none of your friends want to join you. Solitude doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It can enable us to learn all about ourselves and uncover our passions.
Single? This is the perfect time to work out exactly who you are and what you’re looking for in a partner. Think back to relationships you’ve had in the past and reflect on what went well and what didn’t. By learning from people we’ve loved and lost, we can shape our future.
TAURUS (APRIL 20TH- MAY 20TH)
Seven of Pentacles (reversed)
Keywords: Self-doubt, worry, anxiety
Be careful not to make a mountain out of a molehill this month, Taurus. Although you’re usually one of the most laid back signs, something’s sure to rub you up the wrong way in the weeks ahead and leave you feeling on edge. Keep your cool and maintain some perspective. Chances are, you’ll find yourself worrying about insignificant things and blowing small dramas out of proportion.
If you have a lot on your plate, don’t be afraid to let one or two things go – if you can. There’s no point biting off more than you can chew.
GEMINI (MAY 21ST- JUNE 20TH)
Page of Wands (reversed)
Keywords: Manipulation, confusion, mixed signals
Is someone close to you trying to manipulate you for their own gain, Gemini? All might not be quite as it seems this month. Don’t let other people take advantage of your good nature and optimism. You like to see the best in people but this sometimes results in you getting trampled on.
If you’re getting mixed signals from your partner or crush, don’t waste time analysing their every move or jumping through hoops to keep them happy. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. Rather than bending over backwards to get them to treat you the way you deserve, play it cool and focus on yourself.
CANCER (JUNE 21ST- JULY 22ND)
Knight of Pentacles
Keywords: Efficiency, routine, responsibility
Read the books and follow the instructions this month, Cancer. You may be tempted to take shortcuts, particularly if a good friend tries to lead you astray, but you’ll reap better results if you follow the rule book and do exactly what it says.
Tune out unqualified opinions and pay no attention to those with unconstructive criticism. This month is all about hard work and devotion. It may not be the most exciting of months, but come September your life may start hotting up a little.
LEO (JULY 23RD- AUGUST 22ND)
Keywords: Endings, new beginnings, change, transformation
A friendship or relationship may come to an end this month, Leo. It won’t necessarily be your own, but if it is, try to see the positives and look ahead, rather than dwelling on what you’ve lost.
You’ve learned so much so far, but this dramatic life change will take you on an exciting new journey you never even imagined could happen to you.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23RD- SEPTEMBER 22ND)
Page of Wands
Keywords: Luck, money, new projects and fresh starts
Have you been struggling for money lately? This month could see a shift in your financial circumstances. Perhaps you’ll embark on a new project or you’ll get a promotion at work. The financial results won’t necessarily be immediate, but at the very least, you’ll lay the groundwork for a more prosperous future.
Don’t shy away from hard work in the coming weeks. In order to reap the results you long for, you need to break a sweat.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23RD- OCTOBER 22ND)
Keywords: Risk, adventure, experimentation
This month is all about jumping in at the deep end and experimenting with the multitude of opportunities life throws at you. You may find yourself surrounded by sensible thinkers who follow the rules by the book. Don’t let their lack of imagination force you to stick to the path ahead. No, we’re not suggesting you take shortcuts. Instead, use your intuition and initiative and go off on your own adventure. Leave no stone unturned and you’re sure to open up a wealth of exciting new doors. The naysayers will be stopped in their tracks!
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23RD- NOVEMBER 21ST)
Four of Wands
Keywords: Celebration, harmony, peace
Congratulations! You’re likely to enjoy a peaceful and stress-free August, Scorpio. All aspects of your life have the potential to effortlessly fall into place, with seemingly little effort from you.
If you’ve had a stressful few months, this tranquility is well-deserved. You deserve a break, Scorpio! Push unnecessary plans out of your calendar and spend time doing what you love. Don’t let anyone puncture your bubble of peace!
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22ND- DECEMBER 21ST)
The Hanged Man
Keywords: Suspension, restrictions, letting go
It’s time to let go of the things that have been troubling you, Sagittarius. No good can come from clinging onto the past. As soon as you rid your mind and soul of these negative woes and painful memories, you open yourself up to a brighter future and allow yourself to truly enjoy it.
You may find yourself caught in the middle of two squabbling friends in the coming weeks. Avoid taking sides and act as a peace-maker. Your friends will thank you in future.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22ND- JANUARY 19TH)
Keywords: Learning, progression, wisdom
Make your career your number one priority this month, Capricorn. A wise friend, relative or colleague has the potential to dispense a world of life-changing wisdom, if only you open your ears and listen to what they have to say.
Be humble in the coming weeks. You may have achieved a lot already, but if you want your career to really take off, you need to surround yourself with intelligent allies.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20TH- FEBRUARY 18TH)
Ten of Wands
Keywords: Responsibility, burden, emotion
You may be lumped with a huge responsibility this month, Aquarius. It could throw all your other plans off track, but don’t spend too much time mourning the things you think you’ve lost. Life has a funny way of shaping itself and directing us down the path we’re meant to take.
A little spontaneity will work wonders in the coming weeks. Throw all plans out the window and wave goodbye to self-imposed restrictions and rules. Who knows what could be around the corner if only you play things by ear.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Keywords: Completion, accomplishment, satisfaction
You may find that all those loose ends that were causing you grief may conveniently become tied this month, Pisces. It might feel as though magic is responsible, but you may be glad to hear that it’s all down to you. Your hard work and dedication from recent weeks will finally start to pay off, and you’re likely to benefit from feelings of accomplishment and pride.
Don’t forget to thank those who’ve helped you get to where you are now. You have so much to thank them for.
