***Sun in Leo thru 8/22 urges attention to personal goals and self-improvement; ***Full Moon in Aquarius 8/1 will support clear, honest appraisals; ***New Moon in Leo 8/17 will present an opportunity to turn the spotlight on one’s self;
***Mercury is still retrograde thru 8/7 continuing to create chaos in areas of communication, technology and transportation; best to postpone signing any legal documents until 8/10.
4 of Cups: Your unfounded fears have created an atmosphere of smoke and mirrors around you. Most of your worries are self-created, but they are magnetic. Stop attracting the worst by anticipating it.
8 of Swords: You are in a relationship that feels like imprisonment, but you allowed it to happen. Note, there is no lock on the door of your cell, but you still have to get up and walk through it.
5 of Cups: Though mourning is a healthy step in dealing with loss, it is not a lifestyle. It’s time to pick up the pieces, clean yourself up and get on with your life.
3 of Swords: Love hurts, at least this time around. A separation is coming. All you can do is acknowledge that it is time, retain only the positive memories and move forward as soon as possible.
The Heirophant: It’s time to get back to your roots. Perform a tradition from your childhood to honor your ancestors or an ancient ritual to honor your guides.
7 of Coins: Make a list of the qualities important to you in a relationship, then compare it with what you have. If single, use the list to define what you really want. In a family situation, analyze the balance of giving and receiving and insist on an adjustment if necessary.
Justice: You need to find some balance in your life before you can move on. A past life is seriously influencing your present circumstances. Regression therapy could clarify what makes no sense. An encounter with the legal system is due.
The Chariot: Love is coming in fast, in a way that has to do with transportation or solving a mystery. If you are in a relationship, it’s about to step up a notch. Other relationships are also moving into a smoother lane.
LEO – July 23 to August 22
The Fool: Multiple paths are open, but you must step onto one before anything will happen. You may have to take a risk, but have faith that, if you jump, the parachute will open.
King of Coins: A male over the age of 40 who is either well-off or handles other people’s money for a living, will be an important part of your relationship situation.
VIRGO – August 23 to September 22
Strength: No matter what is going on, you are now surrounded by strong, positive energy. Use your breath and focused imagery to pull that energy into your physical reality and you will soon find there is nothing you cannot manage.
Ace of Swords: Be cautious in new relationships, especially where the chemistry is very strong. There are strings attached, possibly another, pre-existing relationship. Ongoing relationships are about to be unexpectedly shaken up, but it will be for the best in the long run.
LIBRA – September 23 to October 22
Temperance: Moderation in all things is being called for. Not a good time for extreme action of any kind. Just go with the flow. It’s fine to have your head in the clouds, but keep your feet on the ground.
9 of Coins: This is meant to be an enjoyable alone time for you. A mate is out there for you, but this is not the right time. The longer you stay single, the happier and more successful you will be later. If committed, you may realize that you have financial security but live in separate worlds. Stay independent of family for now.
SCORPIO – October 23 to November 21
10 of Cups: Complete harmony and contentment is now yours. The more appreciation and gratitude you show the longer it will last. Remember that happiness, like all emotion, is magnetic.
Prince of Swords: A younger male, probably dark in coloring or nature will be charging into your life and shaking up the status quo.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21
The World: You are a co-creator of your own world and now, more than ever before, everything you’ve worked to create is within reach. Go for the gold!
Princess of Cups: A young female, probably fair in coloring or with a nurturing nature will have a loving message for you.
CAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19
8 of Cups: You have a lot going for you, yet your intuition is telling you that something’s missing. As long as you aren’t just trying to escape problems, it may be time to walk away from a current comfortable situation in order to find your bliss.
Two of Coins: You are in a period of having to juggle family and career. You’ll do okay as long as you stay alert. If single, you may be juggling 2 love interests. A choice will be demanded in the near future. Be prepared with a decision or you’ll lose both.
AQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18
2 of Wands: You’re almost there. Stick with it. Start saying thank you now and the results will come in sooner.
3 of Wands: You’ve put work into your relationship and will finally be reaping the rewards. It’s exactly what you had hoped for. Enjoy! If single, romance is likely at an office party or work-related conference.
PISCES – February 19 to March 20
6 of Wands: It hasn’t been easy, but you trusted your Guides and went the distance. Success is assured. Don’t give that negative thought any space in your mind. Be appreciative and humble.
7 of Swords: Someone is “sneaking around.” Regardless of the tactics being used, the secret will be revealed and the longer you avoid or deny it, the more painful it will be.
