It’s time for our quarterly tarotscope, so here are Lunar Cafe’s tarot cards for your zodiac sign. Don’t forget to check out your Sun, Moon and Ascendant signs. Your job is to weave the interpretations together so they make sense to you. We’re using the strange, dark and enigmatic Deviant Moon Tarot for our readings and all have been drawn after a random shuffle.
On with the summer tarotscope… your tarot reader is waiting for you at the corner table.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Your card for summer is the Queen of Pentacles, Aries. This queen tells you to seek balance in your work and play… and it might be time to focus a little more on play and throw a party or have a barbecue. Use the Queen of Pentacle’s practical energy to create the perfect event that your friends and family will remember. While you’re at it, pay attention to someone who may need your help.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
The Five of Swords for you, Taurus. This card indicates a challenge of the intellectual kind. You may have to discern someone’s motives or untangle their little head games. Don’t be drawn into any web of deceit or lies. Be a dispassionate observer and learn from their mistakes. Do not buy into their negative energy. Take some time to breathe, preferably near the beach, a lake or a river.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Temperance is your card, Gemini. This suggests that you are doing well, on the right path. You’ve found your balance and only need to make minor adjustments. It’s possible that you and another person are meshing together well. There’s a certain ‘good chemistry’ going on. Or you could be the catalyst who brings two others (or a group) together. This summer could be significant, as well as fun.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
Your card is the Eight of Cups, Cancer. This indicates you might have to be making an emotional decision to turn your back on someone or something. You must follow your intuition and take the path that beckons. It’s not going to be easy, but you know in your heart what you must do. The first thing is to make a commitment to follow through on your choice. Do not be dissuaded.
Leo July 23 – August 22
The Ten of Swords, Leo. You feel at the end of your tether. Possibly due to the stress of a life-changing event, or work overload. You have to stop. Let it go. Release the pain and resistance. Only when you do that, can you metaphorically resurrect yourself back to ‘normality’. You’re caught up in a mental prison, but you can melt yourself through the bars. Take some time off to recuperate and rejuvenate your mind.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
The Devil has turned up for you, Virgo. You have chosen to shackle yourself to some patterns of behavior which are not helping you. Perhaps you are sleeping late every day? Maybe you are drinking too much every night? Addicted to love, sex, chat apps, or something else? Whatever it is, if you don’t make the changes, no-one else can make them for you. Those diversions look like the greatest of fun – know that they are ultimately destructive. The summer is passing you by. Wake up.
Libra September 23 – October 22
The Hanged Man is your card, Libra. It seems you are feeling stuck this summer. Caught in limbo waiting to start the next phase of your life. The passing of time will solve your problem. There isn’t much you can do, meanwhile, other than to divert yourself with some absorbing activity. Taking a practical step in any direction can help you to move forward – don’t look right at your goal; you need to approach it obliquely. So you could at least put a productivity schedule in place.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Your card is the Two of Wands, Scorpio. This means you are feeling ready to go, but held back by something. Perhaps your plan isn’t complete? Maybe the tools you have at your disposal are not suitable. Go over the details and see what is lacking. Don’t fret, good things are over the horizon. It might help if you align yourself with another person who is hoping for a similar outcome.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Strength is your card, Sagittarius. You don’t have to demonstrate your inner strength to anyone but yourself. If you are under pressure, especially from those inner demons, know that you have a deep well of reserves to draw on. Breathe. Be still and calm. You will attain more by presenting a serene exterior. Know that anyone who deserves punishment or reward will receive it – you don’t have to do anything.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
The Devil has shown up (again) for you, Capricorn. Like Virgo, you may have constructed a barrier of limitations based on unhappy thought patterns or behavior. You are doing this to yourself, so stop right now. You don’t need to keep doing this thing that will ultimately be your undoing. You have to be the one who pulls, drags, catapults yourself through those barriers. Smash them down and break the chains that hold you back.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
The Eight of Wands has appeared, Aquarius. Time to get yourself organized. Put together that project. Clean your home, make the changes you said you were going to make. Look out for a message or some kind of instruction to help you get where you want to go. You have a fertile mind; make sure you plant the right seeds now. Harvest time will come around much sooner than you expect.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
The Eight of Cups has turned up for you, too, Pisces. It looks as if you may have to leave something behind or make some sort of sacrifice. Know that you are making the right choice even though it feels impossible. Don’t think twice; don’t look back. Forge ahead and do what you have to. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do or attempt to stop you. Get on your way and put on sensible shoes… you know you have to take care of your feet.
Hope you enjoyed our summer tarotscope… we loved having you.
