Hello Magical Beings,
As I write the July Tarotscope I’m soaking in the sound and smell of a summer thunderstorm outside my window. The full moon in Capricorn offered us a powerful release and I feel as though this storm is washing away anything that no longer serves us. I’m asking these powerful forces of our universe to take away my self-limiting beliefs and help me step into my truest purpose. I can only wish the same for you, dear soul.
July might be one of my favorite months of the year. It’s officially summertime! You can’t help but offer the sun a grin as you soak in his mighty glow. It’s a time when things are starting to ripen and come into fruition. What are you harvesting?
This month I decided to go back to my tried and true, The Wild Unknown Tarot by Kim Krans. She recently updated the Justice card. What once was black and white is now a rainbow of color as well as a symbolic blue, pink and blue. As we celebrate our country’s birthday I think it’s important to contemplate what freedom means to you. Are you as free as you want to be? Are your friends?
Much love to you,
Cancer July Tarotscope
(Jun 22-July 23) – The Hanged Man
You know that plan you’ve been hatching? The Guides are here whispering to me “tell them to do the exact opposite.” You’re being asked to let go of your high expectations and open yourself back up to the mysteries of the universe. In theory, you’d love a crystal ball to know exactly what happens next. But let’s think that through, how bored you’d be!
There would be no surprises, no suspense, no excitement. Open your heart to the wild unknown. And while we’re all experts at this point of admitting what we don’t know, perhaps it’s what you do know that’s causing you pain. Unlearning is essential to your breakthroughs. Surrender and allow yourself to question everything.
Leo July Tarotscope
(Jul 24 – Aug 23) – Father of Wands (King of Wands)
The King of Wands is the ruler of fire. With that comes great responsibility and power. Your big energy is apt to engulf you in flames if not used wisely. However, when you look over your kingdom and listen closely to the advice of your Guides, there truly is no stopping you.
You are a magnificent beam of light that dances in the wind. You cannot be contained and the creative flow emerges from deep within, without and all around you. Awaken to your greatest potential and move ahead with confidence and grace. If you’ve been looking for a sign…well here it is.
Virgo July Tarotscope
(Aug 24-Sep 22) – Son of Swords (Knight of Swords)
You never want to mess with the Knight of Swords. This powerful warrior always is on the move, usually on his trusty steed. The questions that arise when he greets you: Is this your shadow self, scared to allow others in? Is this your need to rush through to your goals, trampling over everything in your path?
Or have you simply come to rescue yourself, cutting away all the ruffage so the Sunlight of the Spirit can shine through once more? However, this character has appeared in your ‘choose your own adventure’ saga, know this: The Knight of Swords always comes with a purpose. He’s here to break through old patterns.
Libra July Tarotscope
(Sep 23-Oct 22) – Mother of Wands (Queen of Wands)
Oooh Libra! Doesn’t it feel good to give zero f***s? The Queen of Wands indicates to me that you’ve stepped into your power. You’re feeling self-assured, focused and ready to take on the world. While the chaos might still be swirling around you, you’re able to remain steady and centered.
You’ve overcome so much adversity in your days and in that arduous journey you’ve learned how to love yourself. This is the card of self-knowledge and self-mastery. If this declaration feels false, perhaps it’s time to do a bit more healing. You are a Goddess and when you step into that wise inner knowing, everything else in your world seems to fall in place.
Scorpio July Tarotscope
(Oct 23-Nov 22) – Two of Pentacles
Pentacles are the suit of substance and the two asks us to examine our relationship with the material world. Are we holding onto things too tightly? Are we working too hard? Playing too hard? This card is a call of balance. It’s a momentary pause to reexamine what’s been working for us and what hasn’t worked at all. It’s a card of transmutation and change.
It asks us to work a little harder around accepting that the only constant in this world is change. Instead of holding your breath or fearing the boogeyman around the bend, could you start to greet your surroundings with curiosity? Next time you find yourself filled with anxiety, take a deep breath and repeat after me, “I wonder what happens next!”
Sagittarius July Tarotscope
(Nov 23-Dec 20) – Father of Pentacles (King of Pentacles)
The King of Pentacles, the ultimate “good dad” of the tarot is a welcomed sight for your adventurous heart. While you live to be free you can also feel untethered at times. The energy of this peaceful king is grounded, reliable and dependable. You can count on him to always provide.
Take some time to sit with this mythical figure and reconnect with the power of Mother Earth. Your wild spirit needs to be respected and given enormous reign to explore, however when does this shift into exhaustive depletion?
Capricorn July Tarotscope
(Dec 22 – Jan 20) – The Hierophant
An expounder of sacred mysteries, The Hierophant holds the keys to the Akashic records. How will you bow down respectfully to this metaphysical master? Are you open and ready to receive these lessons? There is much for you to learn in the days ahead, dear Capricorn.
When you find your ego in conflict with another, ask your Higher Self to guide the way. Those who anger us are simply our teachers. The Hierophant is here to offer you some experiences that often present themselves as challenges. I highly recommend that you thank this wise sage for the gift and open yourself up to a deeper understanding of yourself and the inner workings of our Universe.
Aquarius July Tarotscope
(Jan 21-Feb 19) – Six of Swords
Someone has a secret dear Aquarius. Is it you? Or are you simply unable to handle the truth? Maybe you’ve been lying to yourself. Or maybe, just maybe, you’ve started to buy into the lies that society has fed us since birth. There are all these curious judgements around gender, race, creed and profession.
There are many restraints and regulations around how we are expected to show up in the world. And to make matters more complicated, our parents often bought into the lie and fed it to us daily. They spoon-fed us false beliefs on the daily, thinking they had “our best intentions at heart.” Break free sweet soul and look again into the pool of knowledge. What do you see? Acknowledge the truth and be free.
Pisces July Tarotscope
(Feb 20-Mar 20) – Four of Wands
The card of celebration, the Four of Wands offers us the opportunity to imagine the divine dancing amongst the stars. There is so much joy here. It can often indicate a marriage or union between two romantic partners, however it can also be an indication of success.
Everything is finally coming full circle. You’ve been working hard for quite some time and it’s a profound experience to welcome in this abundance and recognition. My Goddess, does it feel so good to be seen! Let yourself lean into this moment and relish in the good vibes. You don’t need to pick up the anxiety or questions around ‘what’s next?” Instead dive deeper into the now and let your soul be bathed in this white light of love and acceptance.
Aries July Tarotscope
(Mar 21-Apr 19) – The Sun
Shine bright Aries and let your inner light flow freely from your soul. The Sun indicates a time of joyful awakening where your heart and spirit are deeply connected and aligned with your highest purpose. The Guides are walking with you, hand in hand, giggling with glee with your every step.
Their beautiful baby, created in their likeness, has graduated from spiritual kindergarten and is ready for the next phase of the great adventure. Recognize your greatness and your glory, not from a space of egoic admiration, but from one of truth. Bask in the oneness of our existence when you let the false chains break away.
Taurus July Tarotscope
(Apr 20 – May 20) — Ace of Pentacles
The card of prosperous beginnings, the ace of pentacles offers us a space to ground our dreams in this three-dimensional reality. The only thing that ever stops us from reaching great heights is ourselves. We abandon our potential when we start to let the wayward advice of our loved ones cloud our vision.
They have the best intentions, but nobody knows the right path for you, except yourself. Start tapping into the infinite knowledge and unconditional love of the Universe. It has your back and wants you to succeed. The angels are in the outfield, pom-poms in hand.
Gemini July Tarotscope
(May 21-June 20) — The Emperor
The Emperor is here to help you stand strong and tap into your inner knowing. You know exactly what to do. The Emperor is the ultimate authority, decisive and ready to move forward. If the energy has been stagnant lately, well, get ready for a huge shift! The Emperor likes to move ahead so quickly that at times you’ll find it hard to keep up.
Remember one thing as you trudge the happy road to greatness. The Emperor rules with kindness and diplomacy at all times. He always wants the best outcome for ALL involved. So although things might be going your way, let expectations go on what exactly it looks like. The Universe hates to be micromanaged.
