August-September Reading for Aries

Self-care is an important theme showing up for you, but it is easier said than done. It is not always about meditation sessions or relaxation retreats. It can require you to take a long, hard look at nourishment — for the body, mind, and soul. You might realise in due course that what you thought or what you felt ought to nurture you and help you feel good isn’t actually doing what it said on the tin. Some difficult decisions might need to be made in order to eliminate that which is no longer healthy for you (routines and rituals can have a way of becoming addictions that cannot that easily be shed, even if it is to your detriment). It requires you to say goodbye to the hurt that keeps you pinned to an uncomfortable position. You might need to make peace with the fact that you may never get the closure you need, the answers you need, or even the validation you need from those who presented themselves in positions where you mistook them for people who ought to care. Or you might need to withdraw yourself from caregiver roles that seem only to show promise, never results. If something, a relationship or a situation, never changes, it is dead. The crux of it all is to release attachments. When your emotions come up to overwhelm every progress you have made, take note of what or whom they are for, then take the proverbial axe to whatever shows up at the root of your imbalance. It is so much better to run naked and free.

17 July: Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

A frail, old man walking down the street, hunched over,
overloaded with bags in his hands four times his weight,
he’s making a delivery, because he still needs to make a living,
you’ll rush to help him without a single thought, surely,
but what if you found out he was a former Nazi who escaped conviction
and has been molesting his grandchildren?

A Lunar Eclipse conjunct Pluto in Capricorn tonight, a time ripe for all sorts of creepy crawly thoughts and ideas to come forth from the midden heap of the collective psyche where they usually live, repressed.

This lunar eclipse in Capricorn is taking place right on top of Pluto (and significantly close to Saturn and South Node aka Ketu to boot), indicating, more than most eclipses, a stirring of secrets, psychological material, and generally all the muck we refuse to deal with. Full Moons generally indicate a time of bloom or coming forth. But what comes forth during an eclipsed Moon? Something unpleasant or at least completely unexpected for sure, especially with the Lord of the Underworld involved. It’s a great time though for a deep cleanse of one’s psyche. Since this eclipse takes place in my first house, I’ve been having the strangest sort of Freudian dreams, and they are pointing to the changes I need to make in the way I experience myself with respect to my place in relationships (Sun and North Node aka Rahu are in Cancer, my 7th house).

The 17 July Lunar Eclipse has all the ingredients (involvement of Cancer-Capricorn, Pluto, Saturn, Ketu) to bring the past back in some way. It also indicates big secrets being hidden — but since Pluto is retrograde — in plain sight; or something you are unable to see right under your nose. A parental-seeming figure who seems to care for you might only be emotionally manipulative.

On a positive note, that which was thought lost can be found. In every sense. Is there something you are searching for?

July Tarotscope for Libra

Knowing is one thing, application quite another. Often it happens that when we are by ourselves we are able to see life from a different perspective, attain a deep understanding of the dynamics that keep us chained to certain patterns, yet when it comes to practical implementation, the ego-oriented press of the world around us, or our own tendency to fall back on old habits, prevents us from translating our wisdom into a lifestyle. You may feel as if a hurt from the past has been healed, that you have learned what you ought to from it, that you have done your time atoning for your part in the wrongs done yet the Chariot reversed indicates rather specifically progress that is hampered, or a project that is tainted because you are still letting material or ego concerns hold the reins to noble steed. Some among you might think that you no longer need therapy, that you are ‘good to go’ but there might still be some ground left to cover. This also applies to those of you who are receiving physiotherapy or learning Yoga to overcome mobility issues. Also, beware of operating from a place of assuming others will be on board with whatever you have to offer because you cannot see they think differently. There is still some work to be done. There is still the ‘divine’ that needs to be brought in on the proceedings.

July Tarotscope for Virgo

As I was shuffling the Tarot cards for your reading, they kept jumping out of the deck as if they were trying to say something, or get your attention for an important message. Curiously enough your reading for July sort of reflects that theme of you needing to wake up to something. Were I to read your cards very literally I would say they were about a ménage à trois failing to live up to your fantasies. Perhaps for some of you this indeed is the case. Otherwise it is about misplaced passions and affections. For others, it is about the need to open your eyes about a dream, plan, relationship, or group association, that you think will bring (or brings) you happiness but really, you are just deceiving yourself. For some of you this could be about your relationship with an addiction. But it seems like the fog that has kept you trapped on Calypso’s island is about to lift. A reality check will lead to real happiness eventually.

July Tarotscope for Scorpio

You may not understand why someone who used to be there to nurture you has become needlessly snarky and difficult. Or perhaps it is you who is going around having unpleasant exchanges with those around you who look to you for your expert advice. Perhaps all your interpersonal problems at this time are the result of your own insecurities raising your defenses against imagined slights. Whichever scenario applies to you, or perhaps none of these do, but you have not really been thinking clearly. Retreating and regrouping might be a good idea — getting some distance between you and the world may help you see things in a more philosophical light BUT ONLY if this exercise does not simply become one big sulk session. Perhaps it is that lately you have withdrawn somewhat from your world and been contemplating matters. However, simply replaying scripts of what happened, or only exploring those lines of thought that validate your perspective will only take you down the dark path of resentment and unnecessary social withdrawal. Also sometimes, alone time simply cannot yield the different perspective one needs because of one’s perceptual biases, which might also be an issue you are contending with right now. This might be a good time to talk to someone you can trust to listen to you with an open mind or show you the light; someone who will not be afraid to give you their honest opinion.

July Tarotscope for Leo

A head-over-heart decision (or a painful passage), a new beginning, a coming of age story and all the anxiety that comes with it. These themes seem to be what you are dealing with at the moment, quietly, in private, when no one can see you sans your usual regal bearing, feeling vulnerable and scared like every other mere mortal. Perhaps you have had some growing up to do, the change that will transform you into something more spectacular than you already were may not have come to you through the most pleasant routes. Perhaps there are new responsibilities to bear. Perhaps your new role requires you to ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ in some way. There are many directions you can go. Perhaps the prospect of so much freedom of choice is really what is at the heart of all your anxiety. What if you take a wrong step?! What if you do? You can always start again! (Not that you will necessarily have to). Drop the ifs and buts and enter this new position, role, place, paradigm shift that is occurring for you without fear. Because really, pardon the cliché, fear is the only thing that could sabotage this for you.

July Tarotscope for Cancer

For a while now you might have felt as if you are entirely on your own, holding fort, looking out for yourself, and generally doing everything you can to keep on keeping on. Now that you have survived, it is time to thrive! No one could blame you for continuing to think that it is you versus the world/life. Your ongoing battles may involve concerns related to finance, your physical wellbeing or beauty, your future security, the inability to find happiness or ‘home’. But the cards want you to know that things are about to change. Granted, this might involve a change in direction with respect to what you are currently doing. But all you have to do right now is relax your tense muscles (including your brain) and surrender to the goodness coming your way. There might be a maternal or imperious woman of some considerable power or influence who could help change things for you. Or it could simply be a time for you to come into your own glory as a creative, charismatic, generous individual. On the more mundane plane, you could receive financial assistance or patronage that helps to turn things for you. For some of you right now though, it could simply be that for now you must let go of whatever you have been investing your energies in (at work or school or in entrepreneurship) because perhaps there is no longer any cause for you to pursue this line. Rest assured, something better is on its way. Turn around, bright eyes! Happy Birthday!

July Tarotscope for Sagittarius

A celebration or peak emotional moment is on the cards for you and it has to do with a project or endeavour related to mental activity, social networking, physical transformation (especially surgery), or a negotiation related to your enterprises. It could also be that words exchanged with someone bring forth happiness in some way. For those of you who have been passionately pursuing someone, or if you are the ‘pursuee’, these cards speak of successful union. As advice, your cards this month ask you to focus on what makes you and others around you happy together (like a family picnic for instance) rather than staying too focused on the mundane to-dos in which we can lose our spirit of joy and adventure sometimes.

July Tarotscope for Capricorn

All work and no play makes Capricorn a tetchy drama queen! Your sign is (in)famous for their ambition, goal orientation, and the seriousness that comes with it. Yet it is important to note that the sea-goat creature that represents your sign has half its body in water signifying that part of you that is creative, imaginative and emotional. Ignoring this aspect of yours for worldly concerns can cause you to feel incomplete. If you find yourself reacting badly to people, or unable to act decisively, consider this a sign that you need a break! If you are OK and just doing your thing, then there might be a Fire sign (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) or a fiery individual who might pose difficulties for you. If you are at a certain place in your journey (on a project etc.), where you are taking stock of progress and wondering whether to keep at it or change direction, then try to stay in the company of those who inspire you. You do not need critics at this time. And perhaps see if there is any merit in stubbornly sticking with a plan any longer even though you know it has reached its saturation point and all that is keeping you stuck to it is the time and effort you have already invested in it.

July Tarotscope for Gemini

The Fool in the Tarot, associated with zero, represents the very beginning of an entirely new journey. It is the void and the Big Bang. Where you are headed now, there is no place for preconceptions. You have all the resources that you will need to make this a fruitful endeavour, yet in this new terrain acknowledge that perhaps you do not even know what these resources look like. Even though this new beginning might be the result of a long journey where hard work was put in, and initiative was taken to acquire knowledge, yet perhaps none of the experience you have gained will be of use where you are headed. However, the expertise you have has become part of your instinct, or call it even motor memory, that should keep you from missteps through reflex action. Amid all the world weariness going around just now, this is a great time to be you! Godspede!
