Your Weekly Tarot Reading for August 28 to September 3, 2022: Slow Your Roll

August 28, 2022

No matter what our age or situation, September still feels like back-to-school season or the beginning of the new year. As we transition out of August and welcome the new month, our intuitively pulled Tarot cards for the week ahead remind us to ease into a slow and steady pace. Consider your options, gather more information, and honor your energetic capacity. There’s no rush, but at the same time, there’s no need to hold yourself back. You are exactly where you need to be. 

Read on for your Tarotscopes with guidance for your week ahead.

Aries: The Fool Reversed

Lighten up, Aries. It’s time to put your plan into motion and stop holding yourself back from what could be if you just try. When you stay focused on the what-ifs, you could miss all of the potential satisfaction of success! Don’t be so hard on yourself, and just go for it.

Taurus: Two of Pentacles Reversed

Resist taking on too much, Taurus. This week, you are in high demand as everyone wants your attention and assistance. Remember that your energy is precious and limited; you do not have to take on everything presented to you or max out your schedule. Leave some time for yourself just to chill.

Gemini: The Devil

Tread lightly, Gemini. New opportunities are coming your way, but they are not all exactly as they seem. As you consider the possibilities, ask yourself if this truly serves your best interests or if it all feels a little too good to be true. Don’t hesitate to skip anything that feels out of alignment.

Cancer: Ace of Swords Reversed

Find the missing piece of the puzzle, Cancer. You cannot move forward to make a decision until you have all of the information and something remains glaringly unclear. Make it your mission to get all the facts this week so you can make the best possible choice.

Leo: Temperance

There’s no rush, Leo. Is the anticipation overwhelming you right now? As difficult as it may be to await a decision or big news, you must remain patient. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to speed this up, so make yourself comfortable as you ride it out.

Virgo: Knight of Pentacles

Slow and steady wins this race, Virgo. While some might be intimidated by a long to-do list, that is so not you because a wealth of tasks feels inspiring and energizing right now! Stay organized and keep doing what you are doing to make some major headway this week.

Libra: Queen of Swords Reversed

What do you want to do, Libra? Everyone around you means well when they offer their opinions and insight, but it becomes overwhelming when the assistance verges on aggressively pushy. Don’t hesitate to step back and collect your thoughts so you can make your own decisions free of outside influence.

Scorpio: Four of Cups Reversed

Just chill, Scorpio. There is nothing wrong with needing a little extra time to yourself for rest and relaxation. If you want to stay in, then, by all means, stay home! Use the extra downtime to catch up on that book you have meant to read all summer.

Sagittarius: Queen of Wands

Be yourself, Sagittarius. Does it really matter what others think of you? No! Remember that being unique is an asset so let all of your quirky habits, hidden talents, and lovely qualities take center stage this week. People are drawn to you when you are comfortable in your own skin, so shine brightly and confidently!

Capricorn: Three of Swords Reversed

Speak from your heart, Capricorn. No one can hold it together all of the time and this week feels like a good time to acknowledge how you really feel. It’s unnecessary to act like everything is “just fine” when it clearly isn’t. You will feel so much better once you open up to your loved ones about the challenges you are currently facing.

Be fearless, Pisces! You know exactly what you want, and this is your cosmic green light to make a major move towards your ultimate goal. Embody total confidence, and nothing will get in your way of making crucial steps forward this week.
