Your Weekly Tarot Reading for August 6–12, 2023: Invest in Yourself.

August 5, 2023

We are slightly past the halfway point between the summer solstice and the fall equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, so this is a lovely time to press pause in order to be present and recognize our progress. Time can move pretty swiftly, and if we do not create conscious time to consider where we are on a journey, we could very easily get distracted in the mundane of the day-to-day. Perhaps you haven’t yet done all the activities and stuff you wished to do when summer began back in June. Make an effort to make those plans now! There’s still plenty of time left for ease and fun in the sun.

This week’s intuitively pulled Tarot cards carry the important reminder to be particularly mindful of how you spend your energy. Are you investing in people and situations that give back to you rather than drain you? If you have begun to notice that something feels off balance, that can be remedied now. Even small changes can have a major impact on how you feel, so follow your heart, even if others don’t initially understand the reasons behind your choices. If you need to let something go, then by all means, let it go, but If something feels good, do more of it!

Read on for your Tarotscopes with cosmic insight to plan your week ahead!

Aries: Wheel of Fortune

Make a change, Aries. A lot of what you’re currently facing is out of your hands and beyond your control. However, there is still a lot here that you do have agency over. Place your focus there this week and take the initiative to get the ball rolling instead of waiting for something major to happen.

Taurus: The Hierophant Reversed

Go your own way, Taurus. You cannot live your life based on others’ expectations of you, and sometimes people, even your loved ones, will question the decisions you’re making because they are somewhat out of the box. You don’t need to justify your choices to anyone else as long as what you’re doing makes you happy.

Gemini: Six of Cups Reversed

Let go of the past, Gemini. Stop looking backward because if you stay too focused on what could have been, you will miss out on all of the incredible opportunities that lay before you. Remember that something ended because it just wasn’t working. It’s time for you to just move on.

Cancer: Queen of Cups Reversed

Be mindful of your energy, Cancer. It’s one thing to be generous, but it is quite another to overgive to the point of feeling drained, used, and resentful! Be aware of the difference right now; if any relationships feel one-sided, it’s time to pull back and readjust.

Leo: Nine of Wands

Don’t hold back, Leo. There’s no need to keep whatever is bothering you to yourself any longer. If something is giving you anxiety right now, the best plan of action would be to get all of these fears out of your mind by talking to someone that you love. Let people support you.

Virgo: King of Pentacles

Share generously, Virgo. There is so much abundance that you possess that you should be very proud of right now, but this is no time to keep it all to yourself! Let your kind spirit shine by sharing the wealth with the people you love by surprising them with unexpected treats throughout the week.

Libra: The Devil

Break free, Libra. It’s time to address whatever you feel is holding you back and making you feel so trapped because the anguish it’s causing is no way to live! Once you address the issue (and stop sweeping it under the rug), you can begin to plot your escape.

Scorpio: Ace of Cups Reversed

It’s all about you, Scorpio. Lately, it feels like a lot of your time and energy has been spent focusing on the needs of others, meaning that your own care got lost in the fray. It’s time to pull back and rebalance so you can give yourself some much-needed TLC.

Sagittarius: Page of Pentacles Reversed

Get back on track, Sagittarius. It feels like you have lost your spark recently, and everything is feeling rather mundane, verging on totally boring. Don’t get so caught up in the minutiae of the details, and use this week to reconnect to the bigger picture of what you initially found exciting here.

Capricorn: Ten of Cups

Follow your heart, Capricorn. Make your decisions this week based on how you feel rather than what seems practical or sensible. Whatever you’re doing, if you’re enjoying it, then do more of it! Sometimes, that’s all you need to know in order to move forward and fully commit.

Aquarius: Seven of Pentacles Reversed

Indulge in patience, Aquarius. Good things take time, and just because you don’t see the results you want overnight doesn’t mean this endeavor isn’t worth your time and effort. Don’t lose hope! Use this week to reassess your current plan to see how you could more efficiently reach your goals.

Pisces: Seven of Wands Reversed

Tune it out, Pisces. The people who care about you often have something to say about your choices, but right now, it’s feeling a little overwhelming to take in everyone’s opinions, especially when they come off as judgments! Don’t take it too personally. At the end of the day, all that matters is if YOU are happy.
