Two Aces for you this month, Aries, so you’re all about turning a page and making a fresh start. This is a strategic and considered change in your life, you’re adopting a fresh outlook and re-aligning your priorities and commitments to match that. The King of Swords shows you’re playing the ~long game~ here, you are looking far into your future and making necessary adjustments in the here and now to manifest your new values. You’re being strategic and, you know what, it really suits you!
(THREE OF WANDS, NINE OF CUPS, SIX OF SWORDS)
You’ve got a lil’ dream you’ve been nursing, privately, as shown by the wishful Nine of Cups. This July, a departure or move in your life will enable you to step closer to it. The Six of Swords shows that you’re ready to move on from something, leave the past behind, and heal from what has hurt you before. The Three of Wands shows that an opportunity to heal AND move closer to your dream will emerge in the month ahead. Be ready to spot it, and act on it. This is good fortune.
(TEN OF SWORDS, QUEEN OF COINS, TEMPERANCE)
The Ten of Swords is a tough card about cutting your losses, recognising an area in your life that has become difficult and draining… and walking away, with your head high, knowing you did your best. The Queen of Coins shows this is an act of self-preservation, and you almost need to rescue yourself here. You wouldn’t let a friend or loved one take this punishment, so why is it OK for you to endure it? Temperance reveals a mindset change is the key to it all. You need to look at this through the eyes of another. Would you agree to these circumstances if you were doing this again? No, you wouldn’t. See the light, end this situation, move on.
(KING OF COINS, SIX OF WANDS, FIVE OF COINS)
Whatever hardships or losses you’ve taken on the chin this year, as shown by the sad Five of Coins, have actually served as preparation and training for something even better, which comes to replace the loss. The Six of Wands is like a cosmic ~high five~, saying you’re exactly where you’re meant to be. It was your destiny. The King of Coins shows you’ve lived and learnt, and are ready to make your own luck. You are unstoppable this month, put your energy into something worthwhile and move mountains to get what you deserve!
(THREE OF COINS, QUEEN OF SWORDS, THE LOVERS)
A suitor is wondering whether, when and how to make their feelings known to you, Cancer, as shown by the admiring Three of Coins. The Queen of Swords shows that they are single, smart, ambitious, and maybe an Air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius). Air signs aren’t your ~usual fayre~ (for good reason: you’re not really compatible) but The Lovers shows there is genuine chemistry here, maybe a weird kind of chemistry, but chemistry all the same. See where it goes, why not?
(EIGHT OF WANDS, THE WORLD, PAGE OF CUPS)
In the realm of communication, Leo, expect the ~action~ to increase threefold this month ahead! The Eight of Wands shows messages, invitations, opportunities, gossip and news, flying in left, right and centre, from leftfield sources too. You are at the epi-centre of Gossip Centralthis July. Enjoy the fun! The World shows this is a chance to broaden your network and horizons, advance your own agenda, establish connections which can serve you down the line. The Page of Cups asks you to play a neutral, if not positive, role here. Don’t stoke the fires, don’t add to the negativity. Keep it light, keep it moving, keep it focussed on establishing a useful foothold.
(SEVEN OF CUPS, SIX OF COINS, TWO OF CUPS)
You’re full of good ideas and practical notions this July, Virgo, as shown by the imaginative Seven of Cups. Specifically, these ideas are all routed towards improving your closest relationships, and maybe even igniting a new one (friendship or romance). The Two of Cups shows your fervent attention towards those you love and like, and the Six of Coins your innate desire to help, guide and support those you care for. You understand how to help others in ways that count. You’re an irreplaceable friend and partner, go show them why they need you.
(THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE, THE EMPRESS, NINE OF COINS)
Change is afoot and you are at the helm, Libra! The Wheel of Fortune reveals you’re in for a transformative July, where just one small change can create a knock-on effect across your whole life. Take control of this ~domino effect~ by leaning on something you WANT to be different. The Empress shows it’s to do with your home and family, your loved ones, the place you lay your head and feel safe. The Nine of Coins shows it’s linked to security, long-term plans and investments. Maybe it’s a mortgage, a pension, a savings scheme, a strategy to make what you currently have more secure.
(TEN OF WANDS, KNIGHT OF WANDS, THE SUN)
So much hard work and effort recently, Scorpio, and it’s taken a toll on your energies and spirits, as shown by the ~workaholic~ Ten of Wands. Fear not, though, because the Knight of Wands brings a fresh surge of positivity, vitality and ideas. You press on, feeling recharged, and in doing so you reach a wonderful portal of reward and recognition. The Sun shows that you’re about to step into the light, to hear the applause, to receive what you’re owed and what you deserve. Make sure you put yourself in opportunity’s pathway, push forward, say what it is you need and want. It’s yours.
(TWO OF WANDS, FIVE OF CUPS, KING OF CUPS)
The Two of Wands shows that you’re in a ~meh~ mood right now, not feeling particularly happy or sad, just ambling along, without a great deal of purpose or intention. We all experience spells like this, and it’s normal, but try to seek an end to the ~drift~ sooner rather than later, Cap. It’s not good for you: you need purpose. The King and Five of Cups shows that, if you continue to amble along like this, your gaze will turn backwards. You’ll wander back to old situations and people that you have moved on from, with good reason. Set a new goal, a fresh challenge, an interesting ambition. And make busy with looking forwards, not back.
(FOUR OF CUPS, FOUR OF COINS, THE HANGED MAN)
Gosh, you feel like you’re in a limbo and it’s driving you crazy! The Four of Coins and The Hanged Man are both cards about being stuck in a rut, feeling thwarted, stalling. You hate inaction and boredom, you thrive on invention and newness. The Four of Cups is another card about feeling out of sorts, and being desperately in need of new landscape, people and activity. Aquarius, acknowledge these feelings and see them as ~growing pains~. They serve a purpose. They are trying to nudge you out of situations that you’ve outgrown. Put your big brain to good use this July by identifying what those situations are, and what your ~exit strategy~ is going to be. This limbo will soon pass when you make your way forwards.
(TEN OF CUPS, THE DEVIL, THE HIGH PRIESTESS)
A close relationship, represented by the loving Ten of Cups, needs your intuitive attention this July, Pisces. You always see the truth of things, what lies beneath, but your ~blind spot~ is your own love life or close friendships. The Devil and The High Priestess are both powerful cards about inner wisdom, about recognising bad habits and repeat patterns, destructive ones that we activate on auto-pilot (even though we long for changes). Stop this cycle in its tracks, by spotting the early warning signs and behaving differently. Resist the path of least resistance. Don’t keep making these same mistakes. You can change.
