August 2018 Tarotscope
Here we are in the month of August. The time of the Leo and of course Virgo.
Month 8 can see us getting closer to our goals. We feel that sense that the end of the year is approaching but there is still a lot of work to be done. When we think of the 8s in tarot we think of transition and movement. If we allow it to happen this can be an important month internally.
The major arcana 8 is Strength. Yes, we will be faced with challenges but we will overcome them with grace, elegance and an inner-confidence because we know we can overcome any obstacle.
Have a look and see what’s in store for you this month.

March 21 – April 19
4 of Swords
You had the 9 of Swords last month, which would have been quite challenging. You are through the worst of it but you might need to take some time out to get yourself back on track. Sometimes we fight so hard to be ‘well’ but taking time for yourself can be just what you need to find your mojo. You don’t want to get back to that 9 of Swords space so it’s a great time to meditate and do some self-development. You want to calm those thoughts before they have any negative impact on you. Consider this permission to take some ‘me-time’ this month. What do you love doing? What relaxes you? Yoga, massage, meditation, walking, reading or just being around nature can all be hugely beneficial at this time. You deserve a great and you are worth it!
April 20 – May 20
6 of Swords
It’s time for a bit of a change this month. You may have been having a bit of a tough time but you are on the way to a happier place. This transition or transformation will see you move from the rougher waters to the smoother waters. There is a certain protection around you and the work you have been doing to make a change will pay off soon. There is no point trying to resist as the boat has left the harbour. Maybe you are heading to a new job, perhaps better relationships or maybe you are just heading towards a better version of yourself. Change can be difficult and confrontational but just know that you are doing the right thing and you are about to reap the rewards.
May 21 – June 20
King of Pentacles
It’s a good month to ‘boss up’ and get serious about the material things in life. Maybe you need to take control of your finances. Are your taxes due? You can’t bury your head in the sand any longer. You need to take the time to focus on these things and maybe even get professional help. This card can also suggest that this month could be a good month for career. Do you need to step up at work? Maybe you are going to find a mentor who can help take you to the next level. It might just be time to channel your inner King of Pentacles and take yourself more seriously. Find the confidence to step up to the plate and take the lead in all things financial and career.
June 21 – July 22
5 of Wands
Oh dear. Everything is a bit of a muddle this month. Don’t worry, it can all be fixed. Actually, the big problem is that there is no organisation. Imagine a bunch of people trying to pitch a tent without anybody taking the lead of following the instructions. A natural leader needs to rise and take charge. I sometimes think that this can be an internal energy as well. Are you trying to do too many things at once? It’s a good month to get some structure and process in place in your life. Everything is coming from a good place as it’s being driven by passion but even the strongest passion needs direction and focus if you truly want to reach your potential.
July 23 – August 22
Well here we are again Leo. We had the Magician last month! This is telling me that we need to keep doing what we are doing and the good times will continue to roll. Have a look at what was written last month. We love the Magician! This is showing that you have the opportunity to manifest your wildest dreams. This is an excellent month for bringing all your ideas to life. If you notice he is channeling from above but grounding everything. The Magician has a whole host of tools and skills available to him and this is showing that his power is almost limitless. The only thing that holds the Magician back is self-belief. Be clear about what it is that you want and what you truly need and watch your ideas come to life. Be ambitious, ask for help, believe it will happen and you will be amazed at the results! Being a Leo myself – I’m excited!
August 23 – September 22
It is time for a life review. You might want to check out my ‘life check-in’ tarot spread as it could help you focus on what you need to do. You could find yourself reflecting on your life and trying to figure out what move you need to make next. This is actually a good process. You are heading towards the end of this particular chapter or cycle so it’s good to look back and review what worked and what didn’t work. Take the good stuff with you and let go for the bad. It’s this level of awareness that can help us live our best life. There is a new beginning coming soon for you but you need to be sure to finally close this chapter successfully before you move on.
September 23 – October 22
Ace of Pentacles (reversed)
You had the Ace of Wands last month so you are certainly partial to new beginnings. Maybe this is a time of your life when you are experiencing lots of changes. The Ace of Pentacles is a wonderful card and shows that you could have a new job opportunity or some financial opportunity. However, the reversal is showing me that it’s a bit watered down. There is maybe even potential for you to miss this chance. I want you to stay aware and get in the habit of saying yes to things. You could find that you are not initially tempted what is offered to you but I would urge you to do your due diligence and homework and at least consider the opportunity before saying no.
October 23 – November 21
Balance is restored! There is a sense here of calm and balance. There is a certain amount of cause and effect with this card. You get out what you put in and the reward or punishment will be justified and appropriate. You could face some legal matters this month but I feel that it’s more a sense of justice finally being paid. Maybe you have been working extremely hard and just not seeing the rewards or getting the recognition. Perhaps you have been in a relationship that is very one-sided. That could all change this month as the scales finally balance themselves out.
November 22 – December 21
Four of Pentacles
You had this 4 but it was reversed last month. This is telling me that you are finally coming to terms with all things financial and you are managing to find that balance between saving a spending. You need to be careful not to step back into the reversed position and it’s a very fine line that you are treading. Security is wonderful but you mustn’t compromise on your values and you shouldn’t shut yourself off from the world whilst you try to achieve this position. We are all on a bit of a road and no matter how hard you prepare we will all face ups and downs. The key is to learn how to surf the waves and ride with whatever is thrown at you. Keep going with your saving but try to balance that by having some fun as well.
December 22 – January 19
Knight of Pentacles (reversed)
Things could feel a bit stuck this month. The Knight of Pentacles is wonderful because he is a careful planner. When he finally makes a move it’s usually the right move. He won’t be rushed into things but he very rarely makes a mistake. The reversal is showing a danger that you can get stuck in planning mode. Don’t just think about making a change, actually do it. The planning phase is crucial but you have to realise when it’s time to make your move. This might not be the month for action but be sure to get yourself ready to move or you could find yourself stuck here for a long time.
January 20 – February 18
8 of Wands (reversed)
There is a fire in your belly and you are ready to go go go. However, the Universe is not quite ready for you yet. You need to show a little bit of patience and bide your time. The key will be to keep this level of passion and drive but you also need to find the perfect time to make your move. It’s coming soon but I would say it’s probably towards the end of the month rather than at the beginning. Be careful to stay focussed. You are so passionate and have so much going on that you could feel that you are getting overwhelmed and almost under attack by all the internal energy that you have. Take a breath, wait for the conditions to be right then make your move with focus and ease!
February 19 – March 20
3 of Cups
The key to this month is connection. You want to be sure that you are surrounding yourself with good people who support you and who you can support. We are stronger together and you are going to realise that this month. This takes a certain level of vulnerability as you need to be prepared to wear your heart on your sleeve and open up. When we start to expose our soul to others is the time that true friendships and connection are made. This takes a certain level of trust but it’s crucial. There is a feeling of celebration, sisterhood and fun this month! Maybe it’s time for a girls trip, perhaps you need to join a group of like-minded people who are supportive of each other.
Have a great month. xox
