Want to know what's in store for your star sign for August 2020? It's all in the cards...
(TWO OF CUPS, SEVEN OF SWORDS, THE HIEROPHANT)
The dangerous combination of Two of Cups and Seven of Swords shows that a potential love affair, of a secretive or shady nature, is on the cards this summer. Beware. It’s easy to let flirtations lead you down well-intentioned pathways which might not be as easy to escape from once you realise what’s actually down there. You are a super-flirty and attractive sign, and there’s never a shortage of admirers to play with. However, The Hierophant asks you to be cautious. If it looks like temptation… avoid. If in doubt, don’t!
(NINE OF COINS, ACE OF COINS, THE TOWER )
Something is going to nudge you, HARD, this month ahead, as shown by the eventful and disruptive card The Tower. Don’t stress, Taurus, because these things happen for a reason: to prepare us for something big. The Ace and Nine of Coins show this is in the area of work or money or home, and it’s going to trigger a new beginning which leads to great prosperity, security and success. So, look at your challenges straight in the eye. They are helping you towards the lifestyle you deserve.
(ACE OF WANDS, QUEEN OF COINS, SIX OF COINS )
You are moving into a position of success and leadership, as shown by the ambitious and successful Queen of Coins. Use your power to do good, Gem! The Six of Coins is a ~good karma card~ and grants you the opportunity to give others a leg-up, great advice, opening or support. Give, give, give. The Ace of Wands shows that the energy or resources you share will come back to you in another positive guise down the line, as a karmic reward. The fastest way to success is to support the success of others.
(THE EMPEROR, TEMPERANCE, TWO OF SWORDS)
You’ve been waiting for something to come to a head, a resolution, or be decided for you, and enough is enough of this passivity. The Emperor wants YOU to take charge here. Be the doer, vs the done to. Put your agenda front and centre. Temperance shows this is a new and challenging way of approaching this situation, but that it will pay off, and give you confidence, in the long run, to lead the way more often. The Two of Swords shows this needs actioning and drawing to a conclusion in the next two months, so there’s no time like the present. Get stuck in.
(TEN OF COINS, SIX OF CUPS, KNIGHT OF SWORDS)
A clue from your childhood, as shown by the nostalgic Six of Cups, provides a real pointer about your long-term ambitions, goals and vision. So, take a wander down Memory Lane and remember what made you feel safe, secure, at peace, happy. The Ten of Coins shows this is something to do with home and security. Maybe it’s a literal change of location, maybe a DIY project that will reflect something from your childhood home, maybe it’s a pastime or hobby you once loved. The Knight of Swords asks you to get busy reinstalling this ~thing~ into your present world. It can make a big difference.
(TWO OF COINS, THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE, EIGHT OF CUPS)
A change is as good as a rest, and you’re overdue both! The Wheel of Fortune shows transformation lies ahead this month, in all areas of your life, for the better, although the ride can be a bit choppy. The Eight of Cups shows the catalyst for these changes is acknowledging and moving on from a disappointment, something which just hasn’t worked out as you hoped. Accept it, and plan for something different. You deserve better than what was served up. The Two of Coins asks you to hedge your bets, be optional, start a lot of new projects, get busy. Life’s about to get really interesting.
(SIX OF WANDS, THE HANGED MAN, SIX OF SWORDS)
The Hanged Man is a symbol of limbo and stagnation and shows you have felt thwarted and stalled in your life recently. Not a nice feeling. Well, the Six of Wands is a reassurance that, although frustrating, this ~pause~ has happened for a reason: to get you to make a change. Recognise where you feel most constricted and hemmed in, and identify this as a ~growing pain~. Don’t suppress it; acknowledge it, and act upon it. The Six of Swords is nudging you to move on from something, someplace or someone. It’s time. You are ready.
(DEATH, KING OF COINS, ACE OF WANDS)
A cycle is drawing to an end, and it’s natural to feel sad or a little deflated, but it’s actually a positive signal that you’re ready to expand and bring something new into your world. Death is the powerful card of transformation, and renewal, as one thing ends so another begins. The Ace of Wands reinforces that message, and also points to this being work or project related. You need a fresh goal, a new inspiration. You need to focus on something which makes you feel excited and interested. The King of Coins reveals it could be lucrative and lead to riches. So, look for new training, roles, jobs and opportunities. Something big is coming!
(THE LOVERS, FIVE OF SWORDS, SEVEN OF WANDS)
You are feeling out of sorts and at odds with others in your circle as shown by the combative and conflict-focussed Seven of Wands and Five of Swords. You’re no slouch when it comes to sticking up for yourself, but this is getting draining, and you don’t feel things will be resolved any time soon. The Lovers shows that all parties feel confused and unclear about the situation, and this is causing tension. Perhaps seek clarity rather than resolution (which will follow once the fog has cleared away). Try to make sure you all understand and see the matter in the same light, and that the key facts are known. Focus on clarity, and this mess will start to sort itself out faster than you think is possible.
(NINE OF COINS, THE FOOL, THE TOWER)
Something you’ve been working towards for a long time is disrupted or even cancelled altogether this month ahead. The Nine of Coins shows the long-term nature of this investment of time and energy, and The Tower is the sudden and dramatic event that crashes into it. Don’t panic my friend. Don’t worry. The Fool reveals that this twist in the tale is really a nudge to get you to change course towards something with much better potential for you in the long run. Change is the only constant in life. And it’s time that you made a fresh start in some area of yours, which has become too rigid. Be open to new news. Be ready to make a change. Be optimistic, because this IS a good thing.
(FOUR OF WANDS, EIGHT OF SWORDS, KNIGHT OF WANDS)
You’ve got a blind spot, as shown by the Eight of Swords, which unwittingly limits your progress, and has always done so. It’s a privately held, personal belief that projects internal anxiety out onto the world at large, and creates a barrier that holds you back. The Four and Knight of Wands show that this month, you’ll come up against it again. Try and SEE it. Try and consciously notice the internal beliefs that emerge and convince you NOT to do/say something. Acknowledge where you might be getting in your own way, and deliberately push past this barrier. You can do it, and, once you have, you will never look back.
(NINE OF WANDS, EIGHT OF WANDS, KING OF SWORDS)
News will emerge this month that enables you to push past a long-standing issue, at last! The Eight of Wands asks you to keep your ear to the ground in August because you’ll hear something interesting and useful. The King of Swords asks you to use your brain to work out how this can benefit you, and help to resolve a problem you’ve been wrestling with for a while. The Nine of Wands shows it’s going to be easier than you think, and you CAN sort this out now, even though it has proven impossible before. Have another go.
