Your Weekly Tarot Reading for July 31 to August 6, 2022: Prioritize Play!

July 31, 2022

The heat is on in the Northern Hemisphere, and the peak of summer is here as we welcome August. Lean into the languid, lazy energy of the season as you envision the rest of the season unfolds. Have you made enough time for fun? Do you need to rest more? Or maybe all you need to do is be present and express gratitude for all the blessings currently surrounding you. Seek joy, laugh more, and allow yourself to dream.

Today’s intuitively pulled Tarot cards carry the reminder that summer is fleeting, so let’s make the most of it!

Aries: Page of Cups Reversed

It doesn’t have to be so serious, Aries! It’s time to lighten up and have some fun this week. What’s something that you really enjoy doing but you haven’t prioritized in a while? Make more time for that! Just because it’s frivolous doesn’t mean it isn’t essential for your well-being.

Taurus: The Hanged Man

Just wait, Taurus. At this moment, the best move is actually no move at all, so spend this week just being. Visit your favorite nature spots and stop to smell the roses. Reread your favorite book but this time, pay more attention to the parts that are left unsaid. Everything will make more sense next week.

Gemini: Page of Pentacles Reversed

Get with it, Gemini! It’s time to open your eyes and pay attention to the opportunities around you because if you continue to procrastinate, you might just miss out on something fantastic. Moments like this one do not come around often, and it would be a shame for you to lose something this special. 

Cancer: Four of Swords

Prioritize rest, Cancer. You are long overdue for a break, and this week provides an aligned time to take some time off! Step back from work, put your phone away, and enjoy some time in nature to allow your brain to have a full mental refresh. Don’t you feel better already?

Leo: Queen of Pentacles Reversed

Reassess your priorities, Leo. If you are paying too much attention to this, you might lose focus on what is happening with that. Don’t let silly mistakes get overlooked and slip through the cracks. It will become a far larger issue than necessary if it continues to go unnoticed. Get yourself better organized.  

Virgo: Ten of Cups

Express gratitude, Virgo. This week reminds you of the abundance of blessings that surround you. You might not be exactly where you wish just yet, but you have made immense progress on your goals so far. Be sure to celebrate the wins rather than focusing solely on what is yet to be accomplished.

Libra: The High Priestess

Trust yourself, Libra. When listening to your intuition, it is important to be able to discern between fearful anxiety and the voice of your own inner wisdom. Make space for quiet reflection and relaxation this week so you can follow your instincts free of distraction as you make important decisions.

Scorpio: The Magician Reversed

Don’t hold yourself back, Scorpio. Carefully consider a new opportunity being presented to you this week. Don’t say no just yet because of the stories you are coming up with in your own head. Make the most of this moment, and remember that you have the talent and the skills to take this on and succeed. 

Sagittarius: Nine of Cups Reversed

Create balance, Sagittarius. Your professional life has been rocking lately, so it makes sense to want to put your focus there, but try not to let it get excessive. Immersing yourself in work is beneficial when it’s productive, but it can also be a distraction if there is something you’re avoiding. Know the difference.

Capricorn: The Hierophant Reversed

Break the mold, Capricorn. This week proves that you cannot please everyone by trying to meet all of their expectations, especially when you cannot meet your own. Stop trying to conform to others’ ideals and focus more on doing your own thing, even if it defies conventions.

Aquarius: Queen of Cups

Express yourself, Aquarius. Put your emotions into words and let others know how you really feel this week. Holding back or bottling it all up is not doing you any favors, so stop overthinking it. You will be surprised by the support and positive responses you will receive once you open up.

Pisces: Three of Swords Reversed

Release the past, Pisces? The past is coming back to haunt you this week with painful reminders of disappointment over how a situation unfolded. Be kind to yourself as you grieve the losses and let them go. This moment is healing and helps you to move on with clarity.
