September Tarotscopes


While this certainly isn't an idea I can claim credit for creating, Tarotscopes are an interesting and often helpful take on horoscopes. And so, here's my take on a time-honored favorite. I'm considering expanding the readings, and further research into structuring the Tarotscopes is in the works- for now, here we go!
Aries- (March 21-April 20) Two Of Pentacles:
T
Things are looking up this month! The 2 of Pentacles indicates change on the horizon. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities, especially in the field of your career and work. Things may not be ideal as of yet, but change is on the horizon, Aries. Be ready, and perhaps most of important, know what you want to do. An impossible dream may become a little more possible this month- so don't miss the boat!
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Two Of Cups
This month looks lucky in love for Taurus. Eminently practical and trustworthy, those born under Taurus tend to be reliable, patient but determined, and that patient determination will be met with appreciation this month. Look for a new partnership, friendship, or if you're single, maybe a new relationship! Taurus is ruled by Venus, so embrace that love for comfort and happiness, and let that combination of reliability and enjoyment lead you this month!
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Three of Cups
Geminis tend to be cheerful and outgoing, and love to try new things, and this month will give plenty of opportunities for that. As Geminis also tend to be flighty and easily distracted, the advice this month is to stick to it. What you've been working on and cultivating is coming to fruition, both in your personal life and in the lives of those near you- don't get distracted now! There's great things on the horizon, and cause for celebration at present. Don't let it go to your head, though. Enjoy a month that will have cause for celebration, but at the same time don't overindulge- in ego, in success, or in seeking out gratification.
Cancer (June 21-July 21) Temperance
Ruled by the Moon, people born under Cancer's influence tend to be more introspective, and have great insight into their own conditions and limitations. The message this month is balance, balance, and balance some more. An introspective personality may tend towards moodiness, or even obsession. You need to strike a balance this month, between looking within and looking without. Focus and determination are never a problem for a Cancer, but at the same time, don't let that rule you; be aware of what's going on around you, and what you can bring to the situation at hand- it can make all the difference!
Leo (July 22-August 22) The Emperor
If there's one Tarot card that sums up Leo, this might well be it. Ruled by the Sun, Leos are charismatic, natural leaders, and love to be the center of attention. So this month, Leo, time to step up! The Emperor promises that you'll be where you love to be best- in the driver's seat. Don't hesitate to move forwards and set in motion any longer-term plans you may have. September looks like a good month to start something new, or to revitalize an existing project. Do what you do best, and lead the way.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) The Hierophant
The Hierophant signals that this month might be a time to seek outside advice. Virgos tend towards self-examination and analysis, and this can lead to self-doubt and uncertainty. In this case, this month may bring with it a sense of not being sure which way is up; you may feel like you can't break out of the mental or emotional gridlock you're in this month. But never fear, because you're not alone. Don't hesitate to ask someone, and gain a little perspective on the situation- ask someone who's been there and done that, and can provide the insight you may be lacking. Don't take that lack of perspective personally, as it's not so much a shortcoming as the tendency of Virgos to over-analyze.
Libra (September 23-October 22)  The Sun
Librans, like Virgos, tend to be introspective and analytical, often their own worst critics. Well, never fear, the Sun is here! Your biggest challenge this month, Libra, will be to put aside doubts and realize that yes, everything is just as it seems. Again, like Virgo, don't miss out because you're not absolutely certain. There are a lot of good forces going on around you, and now's the time to tap into that energy. Have a clear purpose in mind and go for it.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22) 9 of Swords
This month may bring some new information for Scorpio, and a bit of a surprise. Tending to dislike conflict, you may have overlooked something you didn't want to see. But nonetheless, being often imaginative, things are not as bad as you imagined them to be. Simply put, don't make a mountain out of a molehill. The key to September is that though life has its storms, we can weather them. Birds sing after a storm, and so should you.
Saggittarius (November 23-December 21) 10 of Wands
This month may be a month to examine what's going on. Saggittarians tend to be the most optimistic sign in the Zodiac- a definite positive, but this month is a good time to examine what you take for granted. Are you certain you need to do it all by yourself? Saggittarians likewise tend to crave adventure, and though this is the case, September is a month ripe for self-examination. Don't take on more than you need to, and let someone close to you know what's going on. You think you can take on the world, Saggittarius- and you may well be right. But don't disdain help where you can find it!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)   4 Of Wands
This month is another good match for structure-loving Capricorn, as the 4 of Wands indicates a time of stability and development. Knowing what you want to do this month is important, and with this you can definitely make that a reality. The 4 of Wands is a card of foundations and building upon those foundations. Take what you've already worked to build and keep working on it. You're on the right path, and in this case a somewhat stubborn nature works in your favor.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)  King of Swords
For Aquarius, the King of Swords means an opportunity this month to put a dream into more practical terms, and begin to work on the nuts and bolts of making what they imagined a reality. Not always the most practical, tending to rely more on emotion and intuition than cold hard facts, nonetheless now is a great time to start using those very same facts, and develop a plan for what you want to do. Combine lofty goals with practical planning, and success is yours this month.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) 3 of Swords
While the naturally caring and sensitive nature of Pisces makes them gentle and genuinely warm people, you may be looking at a little difficulty this month here and there, and may feel unusually down about it. Perhaps it's just a series of small things piling up. The main thing to do this month, Pisces, is to set some time aside for yourself. You want to save the world, and you want the world to be happy. Very admirable, but nonetheless, strike a balance. Don't let the weight of the world rest on your shoulders, and allow yourself time to take care of you. Doing this will allow you to reach out to others.
Well, that's the scope of things for this month. I hope you found it informative and helpful, and look forwards to continuing this next month!
