Monthly Tarotscopes by the Tarot Priestess - August 20215 minute
By Mahasweta Mazumder
Aries(March 21- April 20):
The energy of the 2 of Wands is one that brings balance and harmony to Aries this week. The desire that propels us forward is essential if we are to achieve fulfillment. We become creative through passion, and we create through creativity. Two of wands is a period of thought and reflection, of analyzing what has been left behind and if the subject is ready to do so. The desire to move forward is great, but loose ends must be addressed before proceeding.
Taurus(April 21- May 21):
The Four of Cups tarot card represents being stuck or feeling stagnant in life. Are you so preoccupied with what's going wrong that you can't see clearly how to move ahead? The Four of Cups represents not only our internal struggles but also external influences. If you're having trouble staying motivated or making big decisions, take a step back and consider what's truly important.
Gemini(May 22- June 21):
The Page of Cups brings a message. This could be good news, important information, invitations to social events, gossip, or the possibility of a romantic proposal. It can also represent your inner child, so don't take it too seriously if you see this card. It could be a sign that you need to reconnect with your inner child by enjoying the lighter side of life. It can also represent beauty, fashion, glamour, or style, implying that you are experimenting with a new personal style or having fun with fashion.
Cancer(June 22- July 22):
The Tarot card might represent a woman in your life who will be helpful and kind to you. This card also indicates that you should be careful of how you treat yourself and others, or that you should treat others with compassion and sympathy. She may also suggest that you are more sensitive than you let on to the outer world and that harsh acts or cruel words touch you more than you exhibit to the outside world. This card can also represent a tendency towards daydreaming and a vivid imagination. The Queen of Cups, as a person, indicates a mature female or feminine figure who is compassionate, loving, and supportive.
Leo (July 23- August 23):
This tarot card represents a period of leaving behind toxic relationships. We believe we have attained emotional nirvana and seek additional fulfillment - either from existing or new relationships. This card advises us to reflect on everything that we have learned and accomplished in the past, and it foretells a prosperous road ahead. While problems may be suggested, we are more than capable of dealing with them if we listen to our intuition. We must also be open to change and consider its role in achieving our objectives.
Virgo (August 24- September 22):
Structure, regularity, self-discipline, power, and authority are all represented by the King of Swords. It is a card representing logical thinking, utilizing your intellect, mind over matter, and head over heart. This card represents logic and reason, as well as integrity, ethics, and morality. The King of Swords is a mature person who is calm, self-disciplined, intellectual, honest, and powerful. The person is logical, reasonable, and a profound thinker. He/she avoids expressing his/her feelings in public and prefers to cope with issues using his/her brain rather than his emotions.
Libra (September 23- October 23):
When we are completely obsessed with a particular idea and strong desire to see it realized, we are frequently so blinded by the desire for its fulfillment that we fail to notice the difficulties that we may face, as well as the actions and consequences that it may bring. The Knight of Swords is a very powerful figure who exudes life and energy. This must be balanced by a proper and actual recognition of compassion and responsibility.
There is no stopping the knight once he sets his sights on his objectives. He is oblivious to, and unconcerned about, any upcoming challenges.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22):
The Tarot card represents having the entire world at your disposal! It may signify new worlds opening up for you, and you should expect to be welcomed by the people of the nations you visit. The World can also imply that you will have the world at your feet, i.e. that you will be successful and that the chances open to you now are limitless. You have been through the trials and tribulations, you have weathered the difficulties and learned your lessons, and now you will reap the benefits. You should be proud of what you've accomplished; it hasn't been easy.
Sagittarius (November 23- December 21):
The Eight of Wands is a harbinger of good fortune. The Tarot wants to reassure you that big things are on the way and that a vision you have for how things should be may begin to materialize. Maintain a positive attitude and look for signs that things are going in your favor. When you see this action, send out positive energy and allow the universe's amplified rewards to returning to you.
Capricorn( December 22- January 20):
It indicates you should be cautious about the degree of control you try to exert. Most situations need some kind of control, and you must remain steadfast when things get chaotic. However, you are not required to control every move made by others around you. The Four of Pentacles also represents opposition to change. People around you may attempt to keep things the same, or you may be the one who is resistant to change even when you know it's the correct thing to do. Keep in mind that complete control is unattainable. People must be able to choose their own paths.
Aquarius(January 21-February 18):
The Queen of Swords signifies bringing order to chaos via clarity and boundaries. She is also an archetype that does not apologize for her right to have a place at the table. Bullies and social pressures are no match for the Queen of Swords. She calls into question the legitimacy of institutions and regulations that make no logical sense. She maintains her strength, integrity, and personal authority with vigour.
Is it difficult for you to set limits with people for fear of appearing "mean?" Is your professional path in line with your genuine self?
Pisces(February 19- March 20):
The Judgement tarot card represents the unexpected as the divine judgment, guaranteeing that this time will be fast and sudden. Of course, it will bring pleasant surprises and beneficial events. The Judgement card represents achievement, victory, or total regeneration following a struggle. To see this card can also indicate that you are in a period of awakening, brought on by the act of self-reflection. You now have a clearer idea of what you need to change and how you need to be true to yourself and your needs. This can mean making small changes to your daily life or making huge changes that not only affect you but the people close to you.
