Tarotscopes – Week of September 18th
Welcome to Tarotscopes – guidance from the cards for the week ahead broken up by zodiac sign!
The deck this week is the Dreamy Moons Tarot by Annie Tarasova.
Don’t forget to take a peak at the signs that are important in your chart! Start with your sun, but if there’s another sign you feel connect to – take a gander!
The Eight of Cups Reversed & The Empress: There’s a little stagnation this week, Aries, where things just aren’t moving the way you want. While you know what you need to get done, you’re not tackling things head on. Avoiding the tasks at hand, no matter how uncomfortable or mundane they may be, won’t make things happen any more quickly for you.
It’s time to step up, and get going. Take care of the things on your list, whilst making time to take care of yourself, too. Make space for creativity (which might feel blocked right now). Create for the joy of creating, and you’ll find things start flowing a lot more easily. At the same time, remember to stay grounded: be in the here and now as you get through things one step at a time.
Questions for the week: What are you putting off or trying not to confront? Why? How can you overcome it? What can you create this week?
Three of Wands & Six of Crystals: This is a great week for expansion and growth, Taurus! Be bold in your pursuit of your ambitions, and keep stoking that fire to stay moving and motivated. Don’t lose your focus; keep your eyes on the prize and don’t be afraid to alter your plan a little if you feel that its not quite on course.
To make your expansion that much easier, shed the thoughts, ideas, opinions – whatever it is – that are no longer in alignment with where you’re heading. That stubborn streak may make it hard to simply let go, but why carry baggage that’s no longer applicable? Holding onto it will only weigh down your boat, and what we really want is smooth sailing ahead.
Questions for the week: Where are you heading? What can you do this week to take further steps towards your goals and ambitions? What do you need to let go of?
Five of Stars Reversed & The Wheel of Fortune: We’re starting to get our groove back this week, Gemini! You’ll find some of that energy and spunk returning, and you’ll find your situation in general begin to improve. Remember, though, it won’t all happen at once overnight. Don’t try and rush things – it won’t help.
You are flexible and adaptable, so allow yourself to go with the flow. Change is happening (and at the end of the day, it’ll likely be for the better), but it’s out of your control to speed it up or slow it down. Enjoy where you are in the here and now, and look forward to what’s to come with the knowing that life is cyclical and the wheel is turning.
Questions for the week: How do you feel this week compared to last week? What change are you looking forward to?
Ten of Stars & Page of Crystals: You’ll find yourself feeling safe and secure this week, Cancer, without having to hole up in your shell. Focus on creating memories that are worth keeping, and make time to connect with those you consider family. What traditions are important to you? Keep those alive!
As you relish in the stability of the week, you may find your mind racing with more and more questions. Your mind is flitting from one thing to the next, and it might be hard to tie it down – and sometimes, that’s okay. Explore them, seek answers, and share your findings with others. This is a week to communicate and explore – just make sure you don’t fall down the overanalyzing rabbit hole.
Questions for the week: Where do you find stability and security this week? What memories can you make? What questions do you have that need answers?
Strength & King of Crystals: Strength is your card, Leo, as it shows that inner strength and courage that you are known to embody. Tap into that power this week, and remember that you are capable of overcoming anything that life throws your way. At the same time, tame that inner lion when frustrations arise; a little compassion and kindness will go a long way.
The best way to overcome the obstacles that arise is by using logical thought and problem solving skills. Don’t be hasty in your decisions or executions, but instead stay stoic as you think them through. This is your week to make good choices, so weigh your options before rushing in. Remember, mental fortitude is a type of inner strength.
Questions for the week: How can you show yourself more compassion? How can you use your problem solving skills this week? What upcoming decisions require more careful thought?
The Hanged Man Reversed & The Hierophant: Whatever you’ve been contemplating on, dear Virgo, it’s time to get up and take action. You’ve been in the thinking phase long enough, and have seen it from every angle. If you haven’t had the epiphany you’re looking for yet, it’s not going to come now – you’re just stalling.
Remember, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Go with the tried, tested, and true method of getting things done – you have nothing to prove. This is not the time to rock the boat, but instead to focus on community and the pursuit of wisdom. It’s okay to ask for help or guidance, and it’s okay to not get it perfect on the first try.
Questions for the week: What can you take action on this week? Why have you been stalling – what has been holding you back? What or who can help you move forward?
Seven of Cups & Justice: The world is your oyster this week, Libra! You have a lot of options available to you, but you may find yourself stuck on making a decision as to which is the best for you. Don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis! Instead, trust your intuition to guide you toward the best choice – it won’t lead you astray.
Seeing your choices and trusting your gut comes with being honest and fair to yourself. There may be an inclination to make a choice based on what you feel is best for others, but with Justice we’re reminded that you are only accountable for your part in things. Keep that in mind as you decide which path to take.
Questions for the week: What choices do you have available to you? What does your intuition tell you to do? How can you be more fair to yourself? Are you taking on things that aren’t yours? Why?
Page of Stars & Knight of Cups: Tap into that ambition and focus this week, Scorpio! It’s time to hunker down and figure things out – whether that’s learning something new, or doing some research to get the answers you need. Be diligent in your quest, and ask for assistance when you need it. You don’t need to be the expert in everything!
With your feet planted firmly on the ground, you will find your emotions easier to process and act on. Listen to your heart to know what to focus on, but don’t go into things expecting a specific answer or outcome. Not getting what you need? Lay on some of that charm; why not use your assets to their advantage, right?
Questions for the week: What do you want to start or where do you want to hone your focus this week? How can you listen to your heart (and trust it) more easily?
Five of Cups & The High Priestess: There may be some inclination to look back this week on things that you are disappointed or feel regret about. And while there isn’t anything inherently wrong about this, make sure that you don’t get trapped in the past – you can’t go back. Instead, focus your mind and energy on the things are going right – and the things you can control.
Process your emotions, but work on focusing on the here and now. Make time to connect to your inner wisdom and intuition. There are messages there that need to be heard – so pay attention.
Questions for the week: What is currently good or “going right” in your life? When did you regret not listening to your intuition? How can you trust your intuition more in the future?
Nine of Cups & The Tower: Definitely some conflicting energies this week, Capricorn, but it’s time to assess where your happiness and contentment lies. While you may be getting what you want on the surface, it seems that underneath, it’s not quite what you expected. Is it possible that you’re saying that you’re happy or okay with things you’re actually not?
Faulty foundations won’t lead to stability, and the Tower coming up shows that uncomfortable change is on its way. This may manifest as a realization that things aren’t what you want them to be. What do you need to let go of or destroy so you can rebuild bigger, better, and stronger?
Questions for the week: Where in life are you pretending to be more content than you are? How can you find more happiness and fulfillment? What changes can you make?
Two of Wands & The Star: What a great week for your, Aquarius! This is the time to step outside your comfort zone, and try something new – especially when confronted with a fork in the road. Be bold, and don’t be afraid to test the waters to figure out what the best steps forward are for you. It may be uncomfortable, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
Keep the hope alive! Trust in yourself to make the right choices, and in the universe to guide you. Don’t hide yourself away; this is your opportunity to feel the inspiration in the world around you, so absorb it and shine bright!
Questions for the week: Where are you wanting to expand? How can you take those first steps forward? Where can you find inspiration and hope in your surroundings?
Ten of Crystals & Queen of Crystals: This probably won’t be the most comfortable week for you, dear Pisces, but know that there’s light on the other side. There are endings that are coming or that are needed. Process your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and don’t take words spoken out of fear, anger or hurt to heart.
Be sure to set your boundaries. Choose your battles wisely, and really think things through before jumping in. Use your wit to get through the difficulties, and express yourself in an honest but concise manner. Don’t overexplain or over apologize – it won’t fix anything, so save your words.
Questions for the week: What endings do you know need to happen? How can you make space to process your thoughts and feelings? Where do you need to set better boundaries?
