August Tarotscopes 2017 - Lighting the Flame Within
The Tarotscopes for this August are about how there is a belief we hold onto that restricts us. Once upon a time this belief served our need for securing love or safety. But can I ask you, is this belief still making your life work in the direction that you now want to head off into? Let’s see how the inherent intuition and symbolism of the Rider Waite Tarot Cards reveals alternatives and/or solutions.
And remember, no system or person is infallible. So, I encourage to always just connect and take away with you only that which you resonate with. The rest? Let it go. Okay, with that said, before we begin the August Tarotscopes for each of the astrological sun signs, I want to offer this light Zen look on what it means to be generous. Peace to You.
……The saintly Japanese Zen hermit, poet, calligrapher, friend of children and benefactor to the poor, Ryokan (1758-1831), lived austerely and simply in a little hut below a mountain. One evening a thief visited the hut only to find nothing there to steal. So, he went off into the night. Ryokan caught up with him: “You may have come a long way to visit me, and you should not return empty handed. Please take my clothes as a gift.” The bewildered thief took the clothes and slunk away. Ryokan sat naked, watching the moon. “Poor fellow,” he mused, “I wish I could give him this beautiful moon!”…….
ARIES-Becoming more Assertive; becoming more of a Pioneer
Up until now you have been giving yourself a hard time. Battering yourself with strident judgement, enviousness, or guilt.
You have been wrestling with your financial obligations, especially late at night, causing your mind to go over and over itself while you chase a present solution.
This August you feel more secure or emotionally stronger. You can now shake it all off. Leaving those big and small niggling fears and worries behind you. You can catch up on sleep that you have lost every night up until now.
You realize you have set a too higher goal or standard to reach with what you have and know.
You don’t know why but you find yourself automatically negating all your effort and results. Do you own your own business? Are you a contractor? Many hats you are juggling. You don’t like delegating too much and not delegating is holding you down and back. See what it feels like when you let your lawyer do most of your business contracts. See what it is like if you let your accountant do your taxes.
Time to lead in work or family matters.
Your mindset is what is going to make you fly this month. The little guy has the ability to triumph over powerful forces. Put on Dorothy’s red magical shoes.
Travel is available to you this August.
TAURUS-Becoming Sensual; becoming more Dependable
This August you will experience changes that will push you out of your comfort zone. You either initiate the change(s) or others will initiate these changes. New opportunities want to enter into your life.
Your imagination is fantastic for coming up with ideas. However, to shift a dream, a desire, into a living breathing reality, you cannot feel sorry for yourself or leave projects hanging around or unfinished. It is the same with relationships.
You are being effective in holding a light to who you are but you have yet to deliver the goods.
You have spread yourself to thin; and I feel you have certain people around you who are pushing their values, needs or desires onto you. I feel that this is someone in your work sphere and they enjoy wearing black suits or black and white coloured clothes. Does this ring a bell for you?
Your rising strength here is your ability to form and list your list of goals; and to take a back seat. Focus on one goal rather than a host of goals. Work at the goal instead of pretending to want the goal.
I feel there is a fair headed female who comes across proud, vain or regale to you. I am not sure if she is loyal to you or whether that is a front. I think she is involved with you, or, involved with someone that is quite close to you. This female is either triggering your wild or rebellious side, or she is going to be a stable force that will steer you in the needed direction to reach your goal.
GEMINI-becoming more Curious; becoming more Witty
This August it will either be a month that feels everything is in its place and how it should be, or, you will be in the mood to rearrange and rebalance aspects to your life that are inspiring you mentally or philosophically. Whichever way, the effects will overflow into your personal and work relationships.
You will feel drawn to opening up your sensitivity and intuition/spirituality so that the best version of yourself can create more comfort and leisure in your life.
The colour blue is significant. There is something about a blue table. Having waves of melancholia, or, dealing with the deep waters of the ocean.
This month your equilibrium may get a few shakes or knocks if you exclusively rely on your intuition and/or inspirations. There is something that you are being resolute about. Some people may see you as being dogmatic about this belief, attitude, situation or person. Thinking you can outwit others and swan through life is a restrictive belief for you. Perhaps, you are needing to juggle a number of affairs?
There is a group you belong to that has your back and each other’s back. This group is your source of strength and will get you back on track, if you have fallen off.
Whatever you do, don’t give in or give up, okay? Take on an attitude, that a challenge has been laid out for you and life wants you to Master it.
CANCER- becoming more Nurturing; becoming more Security Conscious
This is the month of facing two choices and resolving it.
A relationship will be your main focus, whether that is the love of a partner, family, co-worker, employer or the relationship you have with yourself You are feeling fed up and feeling it’s time to meet your other half. Lots of communication needs to happen. The more vulnerable or transparent you can be, the greater the release from any real or false guilt. Be mindful, you could be tempted to enter a triangular relationship.
I feel there will be someone around you who won’t be open about their intentions. They will either have the Cancer sun sign or have traits that are similar to that of the Cancer sun sign.
Your subconscious will be more alive and active this month, causing you to wake up in the middle of your dreams at night.
Be mindful that you are not just keeping the peace for peace sake.
Strengthen a more positive and gung-ho attitude instead of letting those self-doubts creep in.
The key to this month is to stay true to your values. This will get you through this month and you will come out much more knowing and understanding. With reflection and hindsight, you will be able to meet your near future. Channel any nervous energy into finishing what you started.
If you have any concerns over finances seek an advisor.
Compassion given and received is the way forward.
LEO-becoming more Fun Loving; becoming more Dramatic
Consider all opportunities.
Consider all options.
Many temptations will surface and encircle you which may result in you feeling rather overwhelmed. Take time to prioritize your needs and wants.
The theme for you Leo’s is about undergoing some kind of slowdown or struggle in order to expand yourself. You will experience competing needs. There will be the need to sift and sort through what is really important or of value to you.
What will hold you back this month is if you drop into a fatherly/kingly, ruling mode/approach.
Have you run out of steam? Have plans or a certain project collapsed? Are you contemplating borrowing big? Think things through more. Don’t risk bankruptcy.
Your inner fire is beaming out. Your inner fire could fire you up to indulge in sweet foods or having a glass or two, too many.
What will support you this August is too put in the hard yards. Get going and make you way in life again. Feel proud of what you are going to achieve. Feel proud of yourself.
Stepping into a daily routine will give you the edge. This new routine may be a work routine or a health/lifestyle routine. If you are getting fired up and frustrated, give yourself permission to get out into the peacefulness of nature. Get into the soil, plant new plants or even just go out and visit nearby nurseries.
VIRGO-becoming more Studious; becoming more Discreet
This month Virgos, you will want to bury your head in the sand about something or someone. This will only serve to increase the worry factor for you. Making you more indecisive in what you need to do.
Your sexual or sensual energies will be high. You could be attracted to two different people and spend time cavorting with them. Your charisma is magnetic.
Luck is on your side. You are aware of your surroundings and are ready to seize the surrounding opportunities. You will find yourself be challenged with having it all. Or, wanting it all.
Relationships could feel controlling to you this month. Either you will be overly controlled by others or you may find yourself wanting to be in charge of others.
Your creativity is on fire just like a fire breathing dragon.
What belief that will hold you back this month, is waiting for someone to come and rescue you. You are feeling fed up that you don’t appear to have the courage or the necessary skills to get going. Your emotions are strong and are clouding the clarity you need to have. And what will further test you is that someone may prove to be disloyal to you and effect a relationship close to you. You will not be able to make sense of it and feelings of loss are strong. Not to forget feeling strongly disappointed. But remember, this will pass.
This happening will act as a trigger in how to take care of yourself better. So, begin to treat yourself more gently. Perfume your bedroom with aromatherapy oils. As soon as you start to feel sleepy, jump into bed and stick to a sleep time routine. Or, begin to follow your bodies instincts as to what food colour groups you want to eat. For instance, maybe you have a purple colour need. Purple is connected to the liver. You are attracted to eating beetroot. Beetroot is said to be a natural cleansing food for the liver.
LIBRA-becoming more Aesthetic; becoming more Diplomatic
Money is flowing. Money is abundant. Lots of invitations and fun times are on the cards for you, Libra.
This month you could work for big business. It means a good income and that means a comfortable life. Then, again, there is room for you to take off on your own and become an entrepreneur and start your own business. Looks promising too…
In your personal life, you feel there is something out of your reach. It feels taboo, or, hidden in some way. It feels like a no-go zone, if you want to continue having what you currently have. But whatever whom or what it is, your curiousity has been piqued. Just stop-breathe-reflect.
You may begin to do some self-analysis asking yourself questions like:-
Can I keep doing more of what I enjoy?
Can I cut back on selling myself out?
What do you think are two things you can change so that you create space for something more fulfilling to be obtained?
Plan long term.
Think of your financial goal(s), health goal(s), relationship goal(s) and family matter goal(s). Move past any pride. Do what you need to do. Get pragmatic.
SCORPIO-becoming more Penetrating; becoming more Resourceful
This month is about expanding your life, your inner and/or outer world.
Travel will be on your mind even though you feel it is a far-off goal.
Personal challenges will come through periods of disharmony or being indecisive. You won’t really be into risk taking as your fear of loss is greater.
Finances will be up and down. There is debt to be paid off. You will need to find out where you can cut back on expenses.
Your health may begin to play up, if you choose to do little or nothing about your debts/expenses.
This month you may feel that things are out of control. You feel you are drowning in the sea of life. Much of your time has been taken up with these areas. So much so, some people around you will miss your company but say instead, you are too self-absorbed.
Arguments could be the norm this month. As much as you want to avoid them, you will probably be in the thick of it.
While you know you need to formulate a clear plan of how to invest and/or grow your finances, you may struggle with this, this month.
The way forward this August, is to approach people or situations in a lateral way. That is move forwards slowly and carefully in an indirect way. Put on a brave front of I am in charge, I can handle things (even though you are feeling wobbled kneed within). There is the possibility, you will choose to buy your way out of your circumstances.
SAGITTARIUS-becoming more Benevolent; becoming more Philosophical
Be mindful of being led astray this August, Sagittarius.
You could find yourself in situations that feel like “do or die”.
Your focus is taken up with your future. You may have a premonition or a feeling as to what your future will look like. You will feel you will have to make decisions now, for your future.
This month you will realize that the approaches you took with your finances previously has reached its desired destination.
For a while you may have felt flat or went through a flat phase, however, this August you will find yourself in a go-to mode about your physical presentation. You will form a new routine.
You will benefit if you plan and consolidate what you need and want to have in your life. Accumulating wealth will be on your mind more so than usual. You want to have more in kitty, around your savings, investments and retirement.
Tell-tale signs of stress could show up in or around your throat, neck or shoulders this month. So, be kind and gentle with yourself.
Taking time out could be a great strategy for you. Take time away from work, or society. Are you considering voluntary redundancy? Are you considering walking away from a business investment? A transformation of self will occur this month. There will be a rebirth-a new version of you is born.
CAPRICORN-becoming more Responsible; becoming more Pragmatic
You are going to feel personally challenged this August, Capricorn. And there is also a temptation lurking around you.
Someone or something has you pinned. Holding you still or back.
You will benefit if you can improve your internal intuitive speak, you will come up with a belief, attitude or vision of how to be released from this perceived bondage existence.
Re-evaluations and adjustments will take up your focus and energy.
Pressures could mount affecting your equilibrium. You may have been walking on eggshells about someone or something. You are still trying to figure it all out. Two things you do realize:-
1. That you need to be careful and deliberate in how you approach this person/situation.
2. Persistence. Don’t say No or give in.
There is something about your finances. Check the fine details.
Orthodox medicine doesn’t interest you as your stress isn’t relieved. You will naturally learn what really soothes you.
The key to move forward and through this month? Realizing you have the tools already at your side. You have the drive (wand), you have the love and desire (cup), you have the commitment and attitude (sword) and the material resources you need (pentacles).
It is a good month to build up your finances.
AQUARIUS-becoming more Progressive; becoming more Futuristic
Different experiences for you this month Aquarius. These experiences will have you reflecting and readjusting to give you the lifestyle you know you now need.
Family matters will need your attention.
You could easily fall pregnant this month.
Wanting a new relationship? Or, you want to shift your present relationship to a new level where you make a commitment to your current partner.
People may be all too happy to misjudge you for some reason. Pull them up.
Your way of making this month work for you is by either breaking off one connection in particular, or, suddenly realizing you are in a stalemate situation.
If your monies is in surplus this month, save or invest the surplus as you could find yourself abundant one minute and then in scarcity mode the next.
Treading the familiar, known road will see you out this month.
PISCES-becoming more Compassionate; becoming more Dreamy eyed
Expect good news.
You could very well meet your future love partner/spouse. Simultaneously, be aware you may shy away because you are not in full commitment mode. Short term is more attractive to you right now rather than a long-term commitment. And that is okay but just be mindful of that present attitude, okay?
You could be congratulated at work for doing a fantastic job.
This month’s personal challenge is where you feel that you are at the mercy of society’s laws. That is, you are conducting yourself as authorities wish you how to be and do. This is limiting you in your outlook, your range of inspirations and how to tackle dilemmas.
The way forward is where you can allow yourself to let the tears well in your eyes. The call is to be YOU with all your perfections and imperfections.
Both you and others will benefit personally if you can be an agent of peace and harmony.
Let others unburden their hearts to you. Life will repay you handsomely.
