Tarot Horoscope: September 2018

Interesting enough, the Arcana of the Month is The Hanged Man, since the Sun is in Virgo until September 23, the beginning of autumn. Virgo is known for its abilities to classify, analyze, and edit. She looks at what works and what doesn’t; how can she improve something in order for it to function appropriately. That’s why she pays lots of attention to details. When these traits are taken to an extreme, it can lead to obsessive-compulsive tendencies or perfectionism because she’s afraid of making mistakes. Nonetheless, it is a sign of humility, service, and work. It is through routines and disciplines that stability and success is achieved. It’s important to keep it in balance by not losing sight of the final destination, the purpose. Despite being a very practical sign, Virgo is also very spiritual.

The Hanged Man is an interesting Tarot card because it means that in order to find the answers you are seeking, you must see things and circumstances through a new lens, a new perspective. It also represents sacrifice and restrictions. Virgo is related to this arcana through a keyword: purification.

During the month of September, it will be crucial to innovate, think differently, find solutions where we usually don’t look for them, and eliminating old patterns and beliefs. The Hanged Man is the Tarot card of liberation because knowledge sets you free. Let’s look for unconventional ideas, new ways of thinking, and see life in an innovative way.

Even though sacrifices need to be made in order to achieve our desires, we must not forget what is it that leads us to freedom, to a better world.

On September 9, the New Moon is in Virgo. It is a perfect day to set intentions related to health and work. On September 24, the Full Moon is in Aries, when we’ll feel more active and enthusiastic for new beginning. Be careful not to do things at the last minute. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: August 2018

The Emperor is the yan or the masculine side of The Empress, the arcana of the month of July. It is the conqueror, the one who expands horizons. Likewise, it is the ruler of an arid and hostile land full of challenges.

The Emperor is a card ruled by Capricorn. This is the zodiac archetype that talks about reaching our goals, our professional career, and how to face challenges without letting fears stop us.

During the month of August, we must not only set goals but we will work hard, with a lot of discipline and effort towards them. These goals may be related to our profession or to a relationship that we want to develop, but, above all, it has to do with our life purpose.

Capricorn rules the highest point of our natal chart. It is a sign of earth and is what allows us to materialize our dreams, ideas and desires.

This month is ideal to be practical and to work very hard. We have to bear in mind that in August we have an eclipse on the 11th and that we are still going to have Mercury Retrograde. Therefore, particularly in this first half of the month we will be reviewing our plans. It is a moment to reflect and review those aspects that perhaps have not been working out and we have to reconsider them. Perhaps, we must change the plans, maintaining the goals, especially with issues related to creative projects and romance.

We will be thinking about how our talents and interests can serve us to shine and promote those projects that we are working on and that we hope will be carried out successfully later on. In terms of relationships, we will reflect on who our true friends are.

During this month, there may be break-ups in relationships or we may experience an unbalance wherever we are standing. The essential thing to avoid acting impulsively and to know that matters are not going to move with the speed that we want.

The solar eclipse of August 11 in the sign of Leo speaks of our conscious side and how we express and project ourselves to others. Leo expresses joy and fun, but it will shake us if we are not expressing our authenticity creatively. This eclipse is going to bring down things that gave us a false sense of stability and that in turn prevented us from being ourselves. Continue reading
