Your Scorpio Season Tarot Pull Is Here to Help You Rise Above and Bloom
As the sun shifts into Scorpio, spirit sends a message for all signs to ponder. Spirit delivered an image of bumper to bumper traffic, but seen from a bird’s-eye view. At that moment, there was a sense of peace looking at the stillness below, even though everyone in their car was probably honking and growing frustrated.
When we feel stuck, and we can’t see beyond the cars in front, on the sides, or behind us—it can cause a sense of claustrophobia. Know that you have the ability to rise above and see from a higher perspective.
The problems you are facing now, you have probably faced before. And if you haven’t, someone you know or admire has. When you are overwhelmed, understand that this is a moment in your life, this is a blip in the history of the universe. If you feel trapped in a traffic jam, there is always another route to take, or a way for you to maneuver around it—or perhaps you just have to wait, be present, and let it take its course until it gives way.
Your Tarotscopes below will help you tune into what your soul needs to focus on or address during this Libra season. Read for your sun, moon, and rising.
Knight of Wands & 6 of Swords
Dear Aries, this Scorpio season you are asked to find a balance between action and recuperation.
It’s not about being introverted versus extroverted. It’s about being aware of your energy and your needs. You need to recharge, you need to spend quiet time alone, you need to honor your limitations. You also need to be in the world out there. It takes a lot of effort and energy to be out there, to perform, to compete, and to interact with other people. The 6 of Swords wants you to find your sanctuary, to figure out what refuels you. Is it taking a walk in nature? Reading your favorite book? Meditating? Exercising? Find your charging station.
8 of Cups & 3 of Swords
Dear Taurus, this Scorpio season you have to identify the people, the habits, and the situations that cause you pain and walk away from them for good.
If you’re suffering, there is always a way out. Even if the way out seems difficult or impossible, there is a way. The 8 of Cups wants to remind you that if you’re in darkness, you have the ability to move toward the light. You may not know exactly where that light will lead you, but trust that you will be guided. You are meant to be happy; you are meant to find peace and love. Your story does not end in tragedy or victimhood. You have to keep on moving.
10 of Wands & The Hanged Man
Dear Gemini, this Scorpio season understand that sometimes, it is best to step away and let things work themselves out.
The 10 of Wands is the card of responsibility and oppression. It is having too much on your plate, and not enough time and energy to tackle it all. The Hanged Man is the card of inaction, suspension, and surrender.
It may be time to take a break. Only you can decide what you can drop, and what you really need to take on. But often, do you find yourself taking on more than you can realistically accommodate? The Hanged Man invites you to pause, to take time out, and to pass on things you don’t need to deal with. The Hanged Man also asks you to look at things from a different perspective: do you cling to your tasks and responsibilities because the idea of not being busy scares you? Sometimes it is when we are doing nothing when we gain the most insight.
The Star & The Ace of Cups
Dear Cancer, this Scorpio season, hope and healing come to you through an open heart.
When people go through painful situations, loss, heartbreak, or depression—their natural reaction is to close up, to shun the world and protect their hearts. But this is not the path too healing. The Star and the Ace of Cups encourage you to open your heart again, to fill it with love. This is where you will find growth, wounds need oxygen to heal. True unconditional love is available to you. You will receive it from others, and you will receive it from within.
2 of Wands & 5 of Wands
Dear Leo, this Scorpio season, do not be afraid of those who challenge your vision.
Let people criticize your wildest dreams. Let others present you with facts and figures about why your ideas won’t succeed. Let them say you’re wasting your time and you won’t get anywhere. This is the universe testing you—do you really want it, are you really ready? Take their criticism and use it to fuel you. Support yourself, be your own biggest cheerleader. Let the competition drive you, not discourage you. The bigger the climb, the bigger the reward.
7 of Wands & Ace of Swords
Dear Virgo, this Scorpio season let truth and clarity be your weapons during any difficult circumstances you may face.
When you stick to the facts and figures, when you remain logical and consistent, you can stand confidently in your power. You will have nothing to prove, because you will be stating only the truth. Others can dance around with their egos and their pride. Keep your cool, now is not the time to let loose. Do not take anything personally, stick to the facts. Do not be reactive, stick to the facts. Do not think of anyone as the victim or villain, just stick to the facts.
King of Pentacles & Ace of Pentacles
Dear Libra, this Scorpio season, do not wait for opportunities for growth, create them.
You do not have to wait for things to fall in your lap. The King of Pentacles and the Ace of Pentacles invites you to tap into your resources, your experience, and your own magic. Look to those who created the need and desire for products and services that people did not even know they were missing. Look to those who created wonderful opportunities for others. Look to what inspires you and look to how you can serve and help others, that’s where you will find your calling.
Page of Wands & Justice
Dear Scorpio, Happy Birthday! During your birth season, you are being called to discover the balance and power of karma.
The Page of Wands is the epitome of a free spirit, someone who is at the beginning of their journey. They have so much to learn, a whole new world has opened for them to explore. Justice is the card of cause and effect, of fairness.
You are learning the law of karma. Not so much the idea of an eye for an eye, it is not that literal. It is more about energy and intention. If you purposely cause harm to someone, you not only cause them pain—you also tarnish your own aura. The pain you inflict causes your soul pain. If you act out of kindness and love—that person will receive that positive energy—but so will you. The Page of Wands encourages you to learn about energy and the consequences of your actions. Send loving thoughts, see the light in others, and discover how this raises your own vibration and blesses your reality.
Knight of Pentacles & 8 of Wands
Dear Sagittarius, this Scorpio season practice patience, persistence, and progress—because events around you will move at lightning speed.
We all know the story of the turtle and the hare. You will get to where you are going, but to get there you must stay rooted. Do not be swayed by quick fixes, or shortcuts. You know that good things take time, so do not skip over the details. The 8 of Wands comes in as a powerful reminder: even if you are moving slow, you are still moving. Time is relative, if you keep working toward your goals, and if you stay present and grounded, you may be surprised at how much you’ve accomplished when all is said and done.
The Magician & 4 of Pentacles
Dear Capricorn, this Scorpio season be focused on your intention, and channel your energy toward what is truly important to you.
The Magician is the master of manifestation and knows how to use thought, resources, energy, and action to bring things to fruition. The 4 of pentacles is the card of conservation, structure, and control.
We can’t control everything that happens in our lives, but we can control our reactions and our energy. The Magician reminds us of our infinite power to create, and the 4 of Pentacles implores us to create with purpose. Use your energies wisely, use your resources carefully, be clear and purposeful with your energy. Are you wasting your energy with fear and pessimism? Are you paying attention to what you don’t want versus what you do want? It’s time to get back to law of attraction 101.
4 of Swords & Death
Dear Aquarius, this Scorpio season deep growth and transformation are available to you through stillness and rest.
Change is the only constant in life. But change, or death, does not have to be this grand and catastrophic event. Change can be subtle, and Death, coupled with the 4 of Swords, proclaims that change can be peaceful. Transformation can happen when you decide to no longer indulge in a specific habit, it can happen when you decide to repeat a positive mantra in your head instead of letting your inner critic run the show. Find opportunities for rebirth, no matter how small or quiet they are.
Knight of Swords & 10 of Swords
Dear Pisces, this Scorpio season you are being encouraged to be brave, and rush headfirst into your wounds. What you face now will clear the way for your future.
The Knight of Swords rides on his horse with wild abandon. He is intelligent and blunt, and he is a force of action and movement. The 10 of Swords speaks to the height of a painful and difficult experience.
There is a time to sit in the sadness, and there is a time to move forward from it. The Knight of Swords asks you to take the lessons you’ve learned from all you’ve endured, and to look toward what is possible. The 10 of Swords has left you shaken and wounded, but the worst of it is over. It is up to you to pick yourself up and keep on keeping on. Do not get stuck in the comfort of victimhood. Find the warrior within, nurse yourself back to health and vitality, and carry your scars proudly. There is no light at the end of the tunnel, the light has always been within.
