Your Weekly Tarot Reading for September 11–17, 2022: Retrograde Reflections

September 11, 2022

Consider your commitments and communications carefully this week! Our intuitively pulled Tarot cards remind us of how important it is to pause and reflect before moving forward. Mercury is retrograde, and this planetary transit reminds us to slow down, double-check our work, and choose our words wisely to avoid delays, miscommunications, and obstructions to our progress. 

Before moving forward with plans and obligations this week, be sure to get more information by asking the right questions, choosing your words wisely, and asking yourself if something is really worth doing or making a fuss over to avoid an unnecessary entanglement.

Read on for this week’s Tarotscopes with guidance and insight into your week ahead! 

Aries: Seven of Swords

Can you keep a secret, Aries? When someone entrusts you with private information this week, keep it under lock and key and resist the temptation to share the news with others in your circle. Frivolous gossip will come back to bite you, and broken trust is difficult to repair.

Taurus: Five of Swords

Is it worth the battle, Taurus? Be mindful of your words this week as high emotions find you in the eye of the storm with those close to you. How important is it to you to be right, and at what cost? Heavily consider making a compromise before engaging in an all-out war just to be heard. 

Gemini: The World Reversed

Delays ahead, Gemini! A major project is coming to an imminent close, but we aren’t done just yet. An unexpected wrench gets thrown into the system, but don’t let an obstacle throw you off course completely because you’ve got this! Use this as a sign to double-check your work and look over the details.

Cancer: Three of Swords Reversed

Your circumstances are improving, Cancer. You might not be out of the woods just yet, but your current situation finally shows signs of healing. The only way out of this is through, so continue to process each emotion that comes up as it appears free of self-judgment.

Leo: Seven of Pentacles

Get focused, Leo. Whatever endeavor you place your full energy behind right now has the potential for great long-term success, but be warned that it will require patience to see the desired results. Don’t give up on a dream because good things take time! Slow and steady will win this race.

Virgo: Two of Pentacles Reversed

Be mindful of overcommitting, Virgo. Your work/life balance is a bit off this week as your calendar is filled with a lot of work and not much space for anything else. Let’s rearrange a few things and reschedule unnecessary engagements so you can have free time for relaxation and fun.    

Libra: Ten of Wands Reversed

Ask for help, Libra. When your to-do list is already a mile long, why are you trying to take on even more? There are only 24 hours in a day (and as much as you may resist, some of that precious time is needed for sleeping!\), so don’t be afraid to delegate what you cannot handle yourself.

Scorpio: Nine of Cups

You have everything you need, Scorpio. When you stop looking endlessly outside of yourself for the next big milestone achievement, you have the opportunity to notice everything you already have created. Spend more time in the present moment this week as you focus on gratitude for the abundance of blessings you possess.

Sagittarius: King of Pentacles

Believe in yourself, Sagittarius! This week provides an auspicious time to step it up and really go for it in your professional life, even if you don’t feel quite ready to take the plunge just yet. A little “fake it til you make it” confidence will help you make those first steps toward your bigger dreams.

Capricorn: Seven of Cups

Carefully consider your options, Capricorn. New opportunities are coming your way this week with promises of seemingly easy money. Is it too good to be true, or is it worth getting excited about? Ask the right questions and get more information before committing yourself any further.

Aquarius: Page of Wands Reversed

Feeling bored, Aquarius? The honeymoon phase of your current situation might be over, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to give up and move on. This is where the real work begins! Put in a little more effort in order to reignite the spark.

Pisces: Eight of Cups

Leave it behind, Pisces. If something just isn’t working for you, it’s totally fair to let it go. By walking away from a situation that is no longer serving you, you create space for a new opportunity that feels far more satisfying and aligned.
