Tarotscopes: July 2013

Hello Lovelies!

Welcome July!!! We are officially into the midsummer months, not that you can tell here in New England, rainstorms, thunder and lightening abound here. This July is pretty interesting as we are also in the midst of a Mercury Retrograde in Cancer! The typical symptoms are there with mechanical breakdowns, accidents and missed connections. We also see the mind looking inward instead of focusing outward, emotional issues being brought to life, this is a time to rethink core beliefs, double check long term plans and make sure you are still on the path you want to be. This is also a great time to reconnect with your souls purpose.
Mercury changes back into motion on July 20th and we can expect the retrograde effect to withdraw by early August!

Cancer (June 22 - July 22) – HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANCER!!!! Nostalgia hits you at the beginning of the month brought forward by the Queen of Cups she reminds you that even by reviewing past actions, new emotions and ideas can arise. Be sure to go back over situations from your past similar to the ones you are dealing with now in order to bring change! Mid-month you fall into the Empress reversed indicating that you are not honoring your own emotions or desires and ideas within your current partnership and that at this time it is important to put your needs on your priority list. You end the month in the 5 of Swords the card of the wanderer, he carries a bundle of swords with him as he goes from place to place. Now is a time of exploration for you Cancer, be sure to bring some protection on your journey, be open to new experiences throughout the end of the month!

Aries (March 21 - April 20) –   The 10 of Coins greets you at the beginning of the month a man has a casket full of money and he is trying to put more in but there isn't any room. He reminds you that in order to create more sometimes you need to get rid of some. Don't be a scrooge this month and invest your money, it could be fixing a car, getting a new one, a home or anything, but either way expect good returns! You land in the Ace of Wands mid-July telling you even though Mercury is in retrograde it is time to look outward for knowledge, hit up your friends and family for advice on your current situation. You end the month in the 5 of Wands, routine is really going to help you out at the end of the month, it helps to develop discipline and even though it may feel like your spinning your wheels, it will help to improve you and move you forward.

Taurus (April 21 - May 20) You enter July under the influence of the 6 of Cups peace drifts on the water, most of us will remember times of extreme emotion as "life changing moments" this card helps you to understand that times of peace can be just as impactful. The 9 of Coins enters the scene mid-month bearing a large basket of coins he bends over to help someone else, he reminds us that even when we have everything we need we shouldn't forget to lend a hand to those around us. At the end of the month you fall into the Ace of Cups,  fear can hold us back from so many things, this card warns you that you will miss so many more if you  give into perceived fears or worries.  

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) –  The 4 of Swords has a grip on you at the start of July Gemini, now is the time to show your valor! Now is the time to help those around you, be honest with them, and yourself, even if it hurts. The 5 of Cups comes to you at mid-month telling you that for every door that closes another one opens, now is the time to take leaps of faith and make big changes in your life or career. The Queen of Swords stops in at the end of the month, reminding you that you have to wait for people to give you answers, right now even threats won't work to get to the root of an issue with someone else.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22) - You begin July influenced by the 3 of Coins, when this card hammers it's way into your spread it usually indicates that you may be seeing a rise in your finances as pertaining to work! New clients or even a new job will add a lot of cushion to your pocket! The 9 of Cups comes in mid-month, this is commonly called the "wish card" in the minor arcana! I considered wish cards to be more like push cards, this is a time to realize your own value and really PUSH for what you want! You end the month with the 10 of Coins indicating joy and celebration to be had!! This card is also one depicting family or friends gathering together and sharing a common goal, their bond helps to bring the goal into fruition!

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) –  You start the month in the 4 of Wands indicating an offense has been done and it is necessary for you to defend yourself. Feel free to let out the tiger in you! You fall under Temperance mid-month telling you to never lose hope and that even the smallest steps lead to big changes. Have patience and take things one at a time. Finishing out the month is the Hanged Man, he learned a lot hanging upside down particularly looking at things from a completely new perspective, it may be time to reorient your thinking and understanding how others around you view things.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) – It is a month of Cups for you Libra!! The Knight of Chalices enters the situation at the beginning of the month, he reminds you that explaining your feelings and experiences is going to be just as important as the actual event itself. You bump into the King of Chalices mid-month encourages you to give back what you have been given, he is a wise man who has experienced so much in his life that he now works on mentoring others and giving counsel. You end the month in the 2 of Cups which reminds you that the heavier emotions you must bear are the ones that can make the most change in your life.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) – You begin the month in the Ace of Coins remind you to appreciate everything you have! Especially the basics! After a while we begin to take those things for granted, but right now this is not the mindset you need. You fall under the 6 of Wands mid-month telling you that even if the sky falls a sense of humor will save you. No matter what happens just learn to laugh, it helps to clear your energy of negativity and reset your system. You end the month at the 10 of Swords indicating that you need to gather all of the facts and arm yourself wisely! There is a battle looming!

Capricorn (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) – The doors are open and the World is in your hands! A sense of completeness will come over you during this time, it is that ability to accept your whole safe, both the good and the bad that will make all right in your world. Mid-month you get into the 7 of Coins, which encourages you to not just collect material things, but give them meaning and purpose. Its great that you got bright color sneakers because they are on trend, but give them REAL purpose by thinning out your other sixty pairs. Now is the time to be frivolous and when you make a purchase, make it count. You end the month with the 4 of Coins which reminds you that absolutely NO GOAL IS BEYOND YOUR REACH!!! Now is the time to really push for what you want/need in your life.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)  The Queen of Pentacles stands before you at the beginning of the month she tells you it is time to shut your mouth and use your ears. Listen to people who occupy positions in your field that you would aspire to be in, they will give you their secrets you just have to sit back and let them talk. The 3 of Coins your influence during the middle of the month, now is NOT the time to sit on your butt, get things in gear and push as hard as you can right now to hit your goals. Don't be afraid to spend some money to make some money. You end the month in the 8 of Wands, with fishing you have to have patience to get the pay off, you need to take this same attitude while you finish out July, after all that pushing mid-month you need to take care, be patient and pay attention to the details.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) – The Knight of Pentacles greets you at the beginning of July, bestowing on you the gift of self-sufficiency, no matter what happens you will always have exactly what you need without relying on anyone else. Mid-month you see the King of Wands come in to play, letting you know that teaching is really your calling at this time, so it is really important that you make it a focus. Changes are coming at the end of the month, so says Death, it's influence is not necessarily that of physical death, however it is one where there is change with sacrifice. An example of this could be sacrificing an old job for a new one.
