Tarotscopes for August 2017
ARIES: 21st March - 20th April
This month, you will have a lot on your plate that you must accomplish. Dedication to the tasks at hand is important (and admirable,) but working for its own sake can be counterproductive. Be clear on what you are trying to accomplish. Strive for balance. No one can or should work all the time.
TAURUS: 21st April - 21st May
In August, you have a lot to be proud of regarding your work performance, even if you haven’t quite seen the rewards you would expect from this yet. If you’re looking for work, you will soon find a position that is going to be better than you expected. Hold your head up high and know that you have a lot that you’re bringing to the table.
GEMINI: 22nd May - 21st June
Things in general are very likely to be going very well for you. However, even though finances are likely to be in good shape, that does not mean that you should lose focus on what is truly important in life, and money is not very high on that list. This is a good time to socialise, to meet new people, and to get out and about.
CANCER: 22nd June - 22nd July
Your efforts are being watched so this is an important time to put in extra effort and for paying attention to detail. The news ultimately is likely to be good. If you’ve been trying hard and doing your best, your efforts are very likely to pay off. If you’ve been slacking off, now is the time to get with the program, before any permanent damage is done to your career.
LEO: 23rd July - 23rd August
Your feelings or ego may be quite bruised by something that happens with relation to work. Try to keep this in perspective. Your whole life is not (or should not be) what you do professionally. You may need some assistance to find a better approach to work. Don’t hesitate to ask. If you’re looking for work, this too may show a need to look in a different way or in a different field than the one you’ve been pursuing. Hang in there.
VIRGO: 24th August - 22nd September
If you are worrying about a romantic relationship, you really don’t have anything to worry about. You and your loved one are on the same page. If you’re in a relationship but have not made a formal commitment, and hope that it comes to pass; take heart, it’s coming. Don’t sabotage things by causing problems where there aren’t any.
LIBRA: 23rd September - 23rd October
In terms of finances, you can expect increase, and furthermore, you will find it in yourself to know that no matter what happens financially, that you will be all right and will “come out on top.” Trust yourself, work hard, and you will do better than you expect. It’s also possible that you’ll be slightly accident prone this month; be “present in the moment” and don’t take silly chances. Overall, though, your health is very likely to be on the upswing. If you’re having health problems, you are very likely to find the people and items you need to make headway toward a full recovery. Positive thought is important and should come fairly easily to you now.
SCORPIO: 24th October - 22 November
Your finances are likely in good shape and are also likely to get a whole lot better. However, this will be as a result of your hard work, and not something like pure luck like a lottery win. Have faith in yourself and keep trying. You will reap positive rewards. If you’re waiting on results from a test, you are likely to soon be celebrating positive news. If there is something that has been bothering you health-wise and you’ve not been able to find a solution, know that there is help available for you. Be persistent in trying to find that help!
SAGITTARIUS: 23rd November - 21st December
This month is about you feeling anxiety/fear about money and/or a clinging to whatever it is that makes you feel secure. The key here is to try to realize that being anxious and grasping does NOT bring security. “If you love something set it free…” is very pertinent theme for you this month.
CAPRICORN: 22nd December - 20th January
If you are currently committed, your workload or that of your partner may be interfering with the relationship. Make a point to make time and space for the relationship regardless of your jobs, otherwise things will suffer. If you are looking for love, the appearance of this card often tells us that you are actually too focused on money and what you do for a living to really create space in your life for a new relationship. Consider your priorities and where your time and energy goes. If you want love, make sure you have room for it.
AQUARIUS: 21st January - 18th February
This month sees a reduction in stress and strain. Things may not be perfect, but they are going to be better than they may have been in the recent past. Take this time to get your head above water and decide where you’re going from here. Even a short break or change of scenery will be helpful. This doesn’t have to cost money.
PISCES: 19th February - 20th March
Be sure that you are “counting your blessings.” Don’t spend too much time in self-pity or wishing your life away. A lot of life has to do with where we put our focus. Put your focus on the things and people in your life that you have to be thankful for. Consider a gratitude journal.
In work, you may not like your job very much, but at least it keeps food on the table. In today’s modern throwaway age job security is a thing of the past. NO job is 100% secure as many have found out to their cost. Be thankful that you are not one of them. Remember that it is rare for any of us to ever be truly completely trapped.
