Tarotscopes for Mid-January to February 2020

With Bonus YES/No/Maybe options

2020 has finally started, and I have your Tarotscopes for mid-January to February up on my Patreon. Patrons, as usual, have already had their early access since 14 January 2020—later than I planned, but we’ll be back on track for the March to April 2020 Tarotscopes.

Also up on my Patreon is the Capricorn Birthday To Birthday Challenges divination and the LeNormand 6 Month forecast for the first half of 2020.
It’s exciting to see how trends are changing and you’re evolving. 2020 is definitely a year of changes!

Meanwhile, things got very interesting on my YouTube over the holiday period. Thank you for all the views and welcome to all new subscribers. We had some great feedback on the pet readings, and if you want a quick love forecast, there’s a video for you, too. Links are below.
Unfortunately, I’ve been having trouble uploading to YouTube since November 2019, so I’m looking at alternative sites to host my videos in 2020 for free (free content for them, free higher profile for me). If you’d like to recommend a site, please let know in the comments. I’d appreciate it 😀

Before you go, I’m offering a free channeled message from deities I work with. The details and request form are here on my other blog.

Happy 2020 once again, and may your Yes/No/Maybe’s be for your highest good always!

Tarotscopes: November to December 2019

It’s Mercury Retrograde feeling like a Saturn Return!

Amazing, we’re already in November! 2020 is just a few weeks away and some of us feeling like we’re still in some pretty rough waters. The good news is that a few of us are going to find the easy, smooth side of the rapids we’re negotiating (and maybe even a short-cut or two), while those who’ve not been paddling as hard as they should…Well, it’s time to move with more direction away from dead-end creeks and hold on tight to that paddle. You definitely don’t want to lose it over the next two months! Yep, interesting, and hopefully fun times for you ahead!

If you’d like your tarotscopes before the month starts plus bonus ones and other readings, consider becoming my patron from just $2 a month. If you’re on the Magician Tier ($4 a month) you get access to the Birthday To Birthday Challenges and Advice for each sign each month.
Enjoy and happy holidays! Catch you for the bonus tarotscopes before the year-end?

Tarotscopes September and October Plus Extended Read

SPECIAL OFFER
FOR NEW PATREON SIGNUPs

Can you believe it’s already September! This year seems to going even faster than a trip on a fast-train. I can almost hear the days whooshing by…So, the good news is the changes you’ve been waiting for are imminent if they haven’t already appeared. And if they have, or when they do, they may take a little bit more adjusting to than you anticipated. More bad news is you may have to adjust some plans or delay them indefinitely.
Good news is, you may have more fun in the long-run, and what you have on your plate may be much, much better than anything you could have anticipated!
Sometimes, you just have to trust that the Universe knows when to serve you your new favourite things (or people)!
I’ve got an extended read for your bi-month, too—About That Matter You’re Thinking About.
Enjoy!

Tarotscopes July and August 2019 and Some News

Wow! The year is just flying by, and while there’s much that we’ve done to clear the way, we’re getting to that last push into our more stable futures in July. We’re all experiencing a wealth of feelings and opportunities, so keep those vibes high and focus on a brighter, healthier future!

I’ve been busy on many fronts, including readying Quest For The Wholly Pale for print—my first book with a publisher—FV Press which should be out later in July. It’s the culmination of a dream come true for me, but it’s had a couple of delays—not serious ones compared to others, but ones which make me grateful for divine timing once I’ve allowed any frustration to leave.
I’m having another dream come true, too! Savvy Authors is hosting my first ever online Writerstarot Workshop! See the details below, along with the links to your July and August tarotscopes. Don’t forget to check out my newest YouTube videos, too! You just might find a message or two there for you as well.

Happy, happy July and August 2019! It’s a whole new world out there. Enjoy it!

Tarotscopes May and June 2019

It’s on time!

Your May and June 2019 tarotscopes at my Patreon, over here. I ran over the time I meant to spend with you, so apologies. Most of you got over 5 minutes as I also added a little on love/relationships and general influences.

Some signs are finding this transition period hard to process or needing to deal with issues which shouldn’t persist, while others are breezing through this time. Remember the past is now immutable and best left where it is. Please don’t try to re-live it! It’s time to give your energy exclusively to the present and future.

Don’t forget my YouTube Channel has fun Pick-A-Card readings for everyone. I’ve recently uploaded:
What is This New Cycle Bringing Me?
How Do I Help My Child Through This Time?
What Does My Pet Want To Know?
How Do They Show That They Really, Really Like/Love Me?
Don’t forget to subscribe if you’d like a new video (or two) every week or so.

Whatever your May and June looks like, take care, enjoy, and have fun!

Your Tarotscope August 2018

#writerstarot 
https://www.patreon.com/LeennaNaidoo

by Leenna

Yay! August is finally here even though you may be feeling unprepared for it. After the strange energies and seeming lack of progress in July, its going to be easier to spot new doors opening and allowing old ones to close gracefully this month. Stay positive, honour yourself and others, and remember that better things are finally here—if you let yourself just see or seed 😀

* for entertainment purposes.

 

Woohoo, Leo! It looks like you have an awesome start to the month, and an exciting end! Not a month to catch up on the zzzs.

August begins with you surrounded by love and perhaps some mischievousness, or maybe that’s a little clumsiness…Whatever it is, it’s bringing you joy, inspiration, and a new self-confidence in yourself. Looking in the mirror, you like what you see after a long time.

Mid-August brings a sudden and unexpected win, one which removes a thorn from your side, particularly if it involves an in-law or an overly dictatorial spouse’s demands. Passions will fly or you’ll fly to your passions, and the distractions will soon give way to a sense of relief and contentment.

August comes to a close with a short trip or a moving away from a stressful, or demanding situation—with your gear and reputation intact. You’ll be doing a happy dance as it’s likely you may have a good business week, or get that promotion or job. If not, you’ll be the winning chef in any kitchen!

 

Running around like a headless chicken has never brought out the best in you, so why do it for any longer? Decide what you want (or who you want) today, and put that formidable brain into action.

August begins with the universe’s perverse sense of humour focussing on you. You thought you were walking away. You thought you saw the light and the clarity. You thought you knew the path without looking at the map or asking directions…Yep, when your thoughts go in circles, so do you. Don’t let the universe make you a laughing stock for much longer. Ground yourself properly this time, ask for help—and accept it!

Mid-month’s looking good for travel, especially for work or relocation. There’s a hint of a passionate love too, but only if you work for it and put in the time. On the plus side, the effort you’ve put into your career is finally showing the hints of a reward—but maybe not quite in the way or place you were hoping for. Could this actually be a better option for you? Stay grounded, consider well, and avoid the curse of the headless chicken…

August ends on an interesting note. There’s less sparkle, but more energy and communication work-wise. There’s less a soul-mate situation, but more of a fun and attractive companion. It’s all about opinions and options now, and if you’ve been doing your home-work and making up your mind on what you really want, there’ll be no cause for hesitation or regrets later.

 

Hard work makes you a show-stopper at first, but come the end of the month, you’ll have to keep your balance and hormones in check, for logic may temporarily desert you.

The month begins with routine and hard-work finally bringing you the attention and balance you’ve been striving for. An ambition is reached, perhaps catapulting your name up with the stars for a little more than the average 15 mins. Make good use of this time and let your humour and authentic self shine.

Around mid-August, legal and educational matters are set straight and in your favour. Any matters with other signs and soul-mates go well—so well that you may be subject of envy at this time. For some, better communication or the truth regarding a spouse or loved one makes you feel like a winner, or justified in some way.

The month winds down with some old beliefs cropping up. Don’t allow them to bog you down or confuse you again. De-cord, or detach from these mindsets, and allow yourself the reward of a good night’s sleep. Pay attention to your dreams. They will set you free 😀

 

Fun and happiness at home helps you feel stable, but you have to find your inner strength and stability to maintain the state you’re looking for.

August begins with you feeling blessed regarding your domestic situation or, for some, perhaps the arrival of a newborn. Life feels abundant and content, much like a holiday. You could be attending a marriage or an outdoor festival that reminds you of your childhood or younger days.

Mid-month could bring a storm of note. Ensure your insurance is comprehensive enough, and that your possessions are secure. Be wary of carrying arguments too far. This could backfire and create more discord or burnt bridges you won’t be able to fix. For some, it’s a highly karmic time—one in which you’re being asked to learn or make good. Be mindful of consequences.

As the month ends, things are looking up, but take good care of your health. Though financial worries are receding, stress or overindulgence, or even pushing too hard could deplete both your health and resources. Find your balance and stay true to the truth and your path.

 

It’s a month to be mindful of the finances, and of long-forgotten promises made—some of these may be called in unexpectedly.

August may begin on an estranged note. You may feel that your beloved is distant—or are you feeling detached from them. One of you is looking at the other with longing, but without communication you’re going to both feel out of luck in life. You may also be looking to study further, but this is not the right time. Deciding exactly what you what, or need, to do is more important than taking action just now.

By mid-month, travel could prove very exciting, but perhaps fraught with difficulties. Consult travel advisories before making bookings, especially if you’re planning on hiking or over-landing in remote regions as the weather conditions could be unexpected. On the plus side, travelling could bring you an unexpected love, or renew your passion with your beloved. For some, it may be prudent, and make more financial sense, to travel later in the year.

The month winds down with a sense that your home is robbing you of expected abundance. If selling property, you may not get your price, and if buying, unexpected fees or add-ons could inflate the original cost drastically. On the plus side, stealing away with your beloved for a private, low-key celebration may be just what you both need.

 

Revised plans bring you less travel, but more clarity and greater freedom.

The month begins with some ups and downs with a Cancerian or your mother. Returning to your home-town may be delayed, perhaps because of car-trouble, or because of work obligations. But never fear, the change in plans will work out to your greater joy later in the month. You may often think of returning to an old career or location, but it’s just you feeling unusually nostalgic. Avoid acting on any impulses at this time until the Mercury Retrograde is over around 19 August.

Around mid-August, your playful side is back, maybe because you’re spending more time with the kids. Something remains incomplete, or needs greater attention, which may once again prevent travel, or have you vacationing closer to home, bringing a greater sense of stability to your life.

The month comes to a close with your sense of judgement being flawless. Missed opportunities which seemed unlikely to reoccur earlier in the month may present themselves again. With your greater clarity and sense of calm, you’re now able to make better decisions. Great and welcome changes bring you a greater sense of freedom to be yourself and move away from negative types. Good for you!

 

Logic slowly takes a back-seat to love this month, and is likely to bring you something you’ve been wishing for.

The month begins with a major change in your attitude. You’re fed up of inconsistencies, illogical types and plain incompetence. You’re all for fighting the good battle of getting things done—and quickly. You’ll passionately and strategically defend your views and methods, and if you can stay the course, you’ll win through. Concentration is all. On the flip-side, a Gemini or Virgo, in a great about-turn, may be fighting (or flirting) for your attention.

Your softer side comes to the fore by mid-August as the battle at work subsides and you feel in control of your emotions again. A water sign could stir your affections and leave you wondering who exactly is holding the reins in this relationship. It’s a great time to get in touch with your feminine side, and if matters are seeming slow to move, it’s only because you are making it so. Try manifesting something you’ve given up on.

August winds down with your judgement in long-term financial situations or education proving true. However, care should be taken in re-investing or renewing long-term contracts, especially for services such as a gym or food club. Wishes in love can come true now, particularly if they have to do with a Gemini, or a matter which arose in early May or June. It’s also a wonderful time to continue manifesting!

 

Luck and opportunity in love and work abound, but only after you’ve settled an obligation.

August begins with you trying to move away from a financial or family obligation, but this is a promise you’re bound to keep. Ensure communication remains clear, and avoid sinking into negative thoughts, or evasiveness, to get over this period quickly.

Mid-month brings great prospects for spending time with family or finding a new love, despite work commitments. Your beloved is unusually affectionate and understanding, and quality time together with you and the family is made a priority. You may also host a minor/small celebration which goes well.

August comes to an end with you finding your balance, and in doing so, finding your luck and rhythm again. You’ll need to be more disciplined, but help is at hand—especially judicial help or practical advice from a professional. You may find yourself juggling work and family matters much better than expected, with your finances slowly improving. New love will go slow, but surely.

 

Domestic upsets may brew up unexpectedly, or war with the in-laws could catch you off balance. Whatever happens, try to keep work and family/love separate.

August begins with some upset, either with an ex, or a matter at work concerning contracts. Union or committee actions and hearings are possible, in which you may have to defend yourself or a colleague. It’s all impacting on your home life so try to give yourself some time-out by going for a walk or swim before greeting family and your beloved.

Mid-August sees you striving for balance, especially between work and family. You may feel battered from both sides when everyone seems to demand your equal attention. Something’s got to give, so make sure it’s not your health. Be firm with those who are overstepping boundaries, but don’t be harsh with those who only have your best interests at heart.

The month winds down on a much happier note. You find your balance, perhaps at a family do. Making good is easier, perhaps with the help of a Sagittarius friend or sibling. You’ll feel the tension from the beginning of the month draining or disappearing while your good humour, inventiveness, and high-energies return. But to be honest, you’re all about the party this time!

 

Worry about change all you like, but deal with the fact that it has arrived and offering greater opportunities and love.

The month begins with bit of a shock. A wide-spread restructuring brings you a new perspective, perhaps with some worry. But while you’re used to the worry, the flood of ideas and solutions that it brings is a pleasant surprise. You’ll finally feel bold enough to go for something you’ve always wanted. After all, what could you possibly lose that is worth holding onto?

Opportunity pounds at your door by mid-August. You may land a job you considered above your skill or pay level, or your business gets an unexpected boost from some excellent reviews or comparisons. It’s all about reaping your just rewards and divine-timing finally arriving. Try pushing your luck just a little, especially if you’re aiming for an academic goal.

The month comes to close with you in feeling calm and in control of your universe again. You’ll have accepted that certain doors have closed, but love the clarity, contentment and joy you’ve found instead. Life suddenly looks brighter and more promising, especially with love renewed or just on the horizon.

 

Life seems like some movie—filled with romance, drama and perhaps a new beginning.

August begins on a romantic note. You’ll be romanced by, or romancing a very inventive and unique character. You may share dreams or chocolate, but even if there’s no conversation, you’re feeling content and happy in their presence. Work is equally inspiring, firing you up with enthusiasm to create only the best. Try not to burn the candle at both ends.

By mid-month, drama arrives. Either conventions at work are misplaced, or a clash with your beloved brings you regret, particularly if things are said in haste, after too many drinks, or in the company of another couple. Remember that you and your partner are unique individuals and that you are both looking to achieve the same dreams and experience the same kind of love. What everyone else thinks of you and your roles…Well, does it really matter?

It could be that you’re travelling—and travelling far—by the end of the month. Communication may be a problem, so it’s likely to be in a remote area or in a foreign country. For some, it’s all systems go for immigration/emigration and while you’ll miss your network of family and friends, you’re more than ready to embrace this new adventure. Only problem, you, or your beloved, has to get used to a new method of communication. Remember, practice makes perfect!

 

Contracts are in the spotlight—both new and old, as are domestic matters.

August begins with a sense of stability and calm. You’re finally making headway in fulfilling old contracts and finding the kind of help you’ve been needing. You’re logical and practical and feeling well balanced about most matters. Any karma with an air-sign will be resolved this month, but be sure not to give away your power to them.

Mid-August brings more family obligations than expected, or perhaps you’d forgotten about them. A celebration may be a lot more work than anticipated and likely to stress you out. It’s not the expense, but the time. Allow for others and find the fun where you can!

The month winds down with you finally getting over a restlessness or indecision. You’re decisive, in control and fill of ideas and plans on how to move forward. You may be overly stimulated and finding it difficult to sleep. Keep a journal or ideas book, and update it nightly so your over-worked brain doesn’t melt. And if it’s an ex returning, remember not to repeat old cycles, and that you do still have a choice. You’ve got the power!

Have a fabulous August!

My Lotus FM Studio Visit

As you may know, most weekdays my tarotscopes go live on Cosmic Chat on Life&Style—the mid-morning Lotus FM show hosted by Zakia Ahmed. She’s been inviting me to get out of my comfort zone and into the studio ever since I began my stint back in late February this year. Not having my own car, getting to the SABC in central Durban is a problem.

On Tuesday, 28 November 2017, I finally got to the Lotus FM studios for the live broadcast of Cosmic Chat, thanks to my awesome Mum and Dad.

Cosmic Chat usually goes on between 11:40am-11:55am. I begin prepping at least 30mins before, in the quietest room I can find (except for one beautiful day when I took the call outside). Most days, KrsnaPriya, the show’s producer, calls me and holds me on the line just before Zakia is ready for Cosmic Chat, then off we go into Aries’ tarotscope for the following day. Thereafter, I do a quick mini-reading for one random caller, and often for the winner of Waxing Lyrical as well. And that’s it—my ten minutes or so on-air. It’s one of the most peaceful times of the day for me when I ground myself, giggle with my guides, hold the space for the listeners, and just chill till I get the call. It is very much my comfort-zone, and moving out of it for even just a day made me just a tad nervous. Still, exploring life outside a comfort-zone is always a good thing. And the fact that dad could get me to the studio that day seemed too good a chance to pass up for this curious writer. Though I’ve been in TV studios before as a student, I’ve never been in a live radio studio…

We arrived just before 11am and signed in. KrsnaPriya fetched us from reception and took us to the studio. With phones on silent we walked in while Zakia introduced a song. The studio is fairly large, neat and comfortable; not at all like the cramped space I’d envisioned when writing Settle Down Now.

The main guest for the show—a guru who’d just done a laughing therapy demo—was just leaving, along with the newsreader, Prabashni. Then it was hugs and hellos all around as Zakia took my hand and just stared at me for a moment. We’d been chatting on the phone for all of South Africa to hear for months now, but had never met before. I didn’t say much. What could I say to such a legendary host? In person, Zakia is more petite than I’d pictured, and with all the energy and good humour as comes across in her show. With Zakia, what you hear is what you get! KrsnaPriya’s humour and energy is a good match with Zakia’s. Being in studio with both of them was fun!

Grounding before I begin the serious prep.

Time seemed to fly by as I began my prep, all the while trying to take in as many details for my writer-brain as possible. Mum and Dad sat close by, watching me prepare for the first time, as did Zakia and KrsnaPriya.

We chatted in bursts when the green studio light was on. The day’s spread was interesting, with two signs mirroring each other, which doesn’t happen too often.

Pravina Maharaj, my writer friend who also works at the SABC, dropped by to say hi. Another first in person meeting for us.

I got to see how Waxing Lyrical works from the studio side. We had a winner with a beautiful voice who gave her reading to her husband.

KrsnaPriya mentioned she’d stream the tarotscopes live on Facebook, and I tried not think about being on-camera, too. I’m much more comfortable behind the lens…

Leenna Naidoo reading on air
Ready to go

Time ticked on, I donned the surprisingly comfy earphones, and then Zakia was cueing me in just like she does every time.

My nervousness disappeared and it was Cosmic Chat as usual with me going into Aries. I didn’t even give much thought to KrsnaPriya filming as I read. With relief, I thought it was all going to be a normal read, but Zakia didn’t go onto Taurus, mentioning instead that she’d always imagined I’d been reading from notes each time. I do take mental notes while I’m prepping, but don’t rely on them in the final read as it often changes and time is limited. But it does make me more coherent—mostly 😀 I couldn’t really discuss it further as the messages for Taurus needed to go. And it was back to the tarotscopes.

Just when I thought it was all going well, I got all spacey and kind of lost the plot over Virgo, ruled by Mercury who was entering his retrograde phase. A sudden refocus and it was on to Libra. All went well again until Sagittarius. Trickster Mercury struck again. I didn’t notice I said Sagittarius again, even though I was reading Capricorn’s card, and the error continued through to Aquarius and Pisces! It had never happened before, and I didn’t even notice until I got home that evening! Ah well, my guides said, maybe those signs were sharing some energies, especially Capricorn and Aquarius…

With the tarotscopes over, Zakia asked me about the cards I was using, and then we took the random caller. Once the mini-read was done, we went to the waxing lyrical winner’s read, and then it was all over. I’d survived my first in-studio live broadcast! I’ve even been invited back. We’ll have to see. There’s both my comfort-zone and the transport to think about. Though I must admit, it does make a nice change…:-D

Tarotscopes September 2017

#writerstarot

by Leenna

Things look a bit hectic this month. Some still need to find their way forward, especially if they haven’t taken the time to figure out what they want. Others have unexpected opportunities opening, while some have the start of the biggest adventure of their lives 😀

*only for entertainment purposes.

 

Virgo

Appearances may be deceptive this month, but something’s working in your favour.

September begins with a legal matter, possibly around your home or shared housing. While it may be upsetting to some, you have the power and the means to gain a better outcome than expected by being both patient and proactive. Envision the best outcome and you’ll realise the steps you need to make it a reality.
A Libran or Gemini will be helpful or offer sound advice.

Mid-month brings much soul-searching or a major turning point in your life. It’s the best time to lose what you don’t need: those extra pounds, clutter in your home (send suitable stuff to a charity or take a fleamarket stall for some extra cash), store cards, bad habits, toxic relationships, and depressed or negative thoughts of your future (seriously—do you really need doom-n-gloom in your life?). Within a few days, you may feel a sense of rebirth, or renewal. You may consider studying further or persisting in a matter which you earlier felt you could not achieve. A playful feeling will return and life will be brighter and full of opportunities you could not see before.

September comes to an end with you seeking a way forward. There’s much research that you will be doing, and while you may also be tempted to electronically stalk your beloved, please refrain. Send them an old-fashioned love-letter (or at least an email) instead.
You’ll see some progress in advancing new ideas and ambitions and possibly some travel too. And if you’re missing your beloved or are wanting to approach someone new, use your personal, unique and steady approach. It’s got all the magic you’ll need 🙂

 

Libra

A month of hidden things…Your mind (or minds) may be your worst enemy. Focus!

What can I say? September begins with another curve-ball…or two. Not that it’s bad, just throwing you off-balance. And we all know how harried and flustered that makes you feel. There’s a secret in love coming out—possibly from a secret admirer, possibly another air-sign, and possibly someone very wise, though young at heart. How does this make you feel? Flustered. And wanting some new clothes to hide behind. Drop the armour and allow them to get to know the true you.

Mid-month should bring some wonderful news in your career. But (warning: curve-ball!) this news may be delayed, or important messages may be lost. Don’t stress, your team manager or client will be understanding and I see no financial losses attached. But you will have to clear your schedule and work that much harder to meet your deadlines. Tough on your love relationships, but doable.

The month comes to an end with you very much in demand:-) In work, two (or three) manager types want you on their team (great if you’re seeking a new position). In love, two or three people are vying for your attention—one of them aggressively so, and another so subtly, you won’t even see them standing against the wall. What does this mean for you? You’ll have to brush up on old skills and/or learn new ones. You’ll have some decisions to make soon, but they can wait till you know what’s what, and who’s who.

 

Scorpio

Some delays push you forward faster than you’d think possible.

The month starts off on an emotional note. You may feel disconnected from someone you love, or they may be giving you the cold shoulder. If you’ve done something wrong, ‘fess up. Once the storm is over, there’ll be happier times ahead. Some of you may decide to go your own way, but don’t make any major decisions until the storm-clouds have completely disappeared.

Mid-September finds you thinking long-term. While it’s not the best time to put new plans into motion, it’s a great time to consider your options, your skills and review your goals and ambitions. Some may decide to try a new career path, perhaps an untraditional one, perhaps in healing or music. Set your intentions, look for opportunities, and get ready to act late in the month.

The month ends with some frustration followed by unexpected good luck! Travel delays, the need to relocate or to gain new skills quickly may all frustrate you. But keep your temper and temper your expectations. Consider temporary voluntary work in your new field of interest, or changing your lifestyle, as your new adventure.
Things will change as soon as your mind opens and the universe can begin being your fairy-godmother again—just in time for your birthday. Pumpkins, anyone? 😀

 

Sagittarius

Major changes lead to more adventure and you standing in your power.

News, at the start of the month, from an air-sign friend or family member will suddenly bring a situation to an end. For some, this could be the finalisation of a divorce or the start of a retirement/retrenchment; and while it closes some doors, it’s opening new doors in an area you love—travel and relocation! Be honest, a part of you was secretly wishing for just such freedom.

Mid-month brings some hesitation as you decide just which path to follow. Know that you are strong and vibrant at this time, and the only thing you lack in seeking new ventures is research, and a new networking circle. Know also that this is the perfect time for you to reach for that dream, no matter what an air-sign says. It’s time in your life for a big change.

September ends with you finding a sudden break which makes life exciting and fun again. A quick, unexpected trip helps you find new friends and presents better prospects. But listen to your intuition (or your partner’s) to ensure you’re making the right connections, both in the ‘real’ world and in your mind.

 

Capricorn

Health and home need some TLC. Make time to rest.

September begins with you needing to take better care of your health. Missing meals are a no-no. Make sure your shoes are comfortable and not cutting off circulation, and ladies may want to make that appointment with a gynae. With all that you’re juggling (especially if you hold two jobs) you’ll need to rest or risk burning out. Time to get those immune-boosters and early nights in.

Mid-September brings new challenges around home or housing. Severe rains or snow may hamper drainage in your area. Time for drimacs, wellies and holding back on the gardening. If you’re moving home, drainage and plumbing should definitely be on your checklists. It’s a good time, though, for longer-term investments—particularly in savings plans and flexible investments. Stick to what has worked for you in the past, and you should be on financially firmer ground sooner than expected.

September comes to an end with finding long-term solutions to any health or financial worries. While you may fear a lack, especially in love and affection, there’s much to look forward to as the Wheel of Fortune turns in your favour. But go easy on the décor plans and make sure to expand your skills where-ever you can. Oh, and it’s not the month to get engaged either. December may work out better on that front 😀

 

Aquarius

Expected the unexpected, and varied weather, to influence your plans.

September begins with some unexpected news from a fire-sign or your partner. There may be some financial concerns attached, but fear not, the fire-sign has a good plan. Trust in them. Storm-damage may be possible on your property, especially during electrical storms. Ensure your surge-protectors are working fine, and unplug communication devices till the worst is over.

Mid-September brings some competition with a younger air-sign, possibly a Gemini. You’re equally balanced, and if you keep your cool, you’re more likely to win this bout. Financial worries recede in the wake of a good bonus or other windfall, and while you still have some hard work to do, you’ll be in a good strong place from now on.

Unexpected travel brings some long delays, especially on international flights due to fog or dust/smoke clouds in northern areas. Make sure you have all your necessities in your cabin bag or an overnight bag. Use the delay for introspection. What makes you truly happy? Seems obvious, but perhaps it’s not what you think it is any more.

 

Pisces

A more stable financial situation is on its way.

September begins with you seeking new opportunities to fill your piggy-bank. While the opportunities you’re currently pursuing may take longer to blossom, your patience will be rewarded. Meantime, reorganise yourself and stop checking your email every five minutes.

Mid-month brings an unexpected surprise which will have you in smiles. An old school-friend (or crush) may contact you out the blue with an amazing opportunity, or introduce you to someone else whom you’ve impressed. Problem is, you may not have much time to decide if this opportunity is right for you. If you’re not into adapting fast at present, or learning new skills in record time, you may want to wait till later in the month for an opportunity you feel more comfortable accepting, even if it may not be as exciting.

September creeps to an end for you. All you want is some alone time to meditate and reflect. You will get it, but at the cost of feeling a little isolated for a few days. Virgoans will be helpful, but only on a practical level. Any spiritual questions you may have will probably best be answered by yourself at this point.
At the very end of September, a sense of stability and building a new foundation should be apparent. New job opportunities or home situations should be easier to find. And you could be happily signing on the dotted lines by the last days of this month.

 

 Aries

Family situations may drive you nuts, but also brings the best out in you.

A situation you’d hope had been resolved reinvents itself at your next family gathering. Admit it, sometimes you just wish you could wave your wand and mute everyone at the family table. While it won’t be polite to say that you’ve heard the same story a bazillion times already, you could zone out without anyone holding it against you. Alternatively, make a remix single of the same-o-same-o phrases and get more out of your family gathering:-D Be creative, not harsh, and see the humour in the situation is all I’m saying.

Mid-month sees some interesting power-plays at work or with an earth-sign: a Capricorn or Taurus. Someone may be hiding the truth of the matter from you, but it’s not what you think. In interviews or when buying high-priced items/renting property, ask the right questions; less on the cosmetic aspects and more on the durability/longevity and overall-cost. Don’t let the cotton-wool stick to your eyes.

The month ends on a shockingly good note. There’s a baby (or puppy) arriving for some. For others, it’s something (someone) they consider their baby—a new project, a new love, a boat, a car, an aeroplane…
Once you’ve pick up your jaw and realise how lucky you are, it looks like plain sailing till the end of the month.

 

Taurus

The old stalemate is over, things are moving, and you like it!

The month begins with you determined to make your dream come true now (like now!), especially in love, or in something else that you love. You’re done being apart from the ones/things you love and nothing’s going to stop you, except maybe a really good plan…Strike that, you don’t actually need one. Just your passport and/or a fill tank for your wheels.

Mid-September finds your impetuousness paying off in wonderful ways. You realise dreams do come true, even though the reality may differ somewhat. There’s new solid beginnings, fun and playfulness and a sense of wonder and joy which has escaped you for so long. Though finances may not stretch to all that you want (or you’re paying through your nose for something) you don’t mind, ‘cos you (and them or it) are worth it. But be warned, if it’s a true-love situation you’re returning to, they may test your metal first by throwing you in the fire in some way. Forge ahead regardless.

September ends with you comfortably settling into your new reality. A steadiness returns and while the excitement of the past few weeks hasn’t died, you’ve got a handle on things again in just the way you like. Luck’s with you too, drawing you to your destiny, showing you the best way forward and allowing you to meet any and all challenges with your customary strength, your usual persistence and an enviable inventiveness. Looks like it’s your month, Taurus!

 

Gemini

Repeat after me: Paranoia is not my best friend.

If there’s any sign I want to slap with a wet fish and say, “Get over it,” it’s you. Why? Because for every step forward you’ve taken over the past couple of months, you’ve taken three back. No, not everyone is watching you (at least not all the time); and no, not everyone’s out to get you (okay, maybe one or two). But you’re wasting so much time and energy stalking exes who no longer love you, stalking old so-called friends to see what (if anything) they’re saying about you, and acting all shifty at work and around those that care, that…Well, if you’ve never seen anyone who’s shot themselves in the foot before, look in the mirror. Nuff said. You’re on your own for the beginning of this month till you sort yourself out. Find the positive and move forward.

Mid-September sees you wanting to go on a trip. That’s good. Going to the same place with the same people and doing the same things—not so good. Why regress when you can progress?

Good news: You can see clearly now the tears have gone… Bad news: You’d rather mope and cast even more of your power away than do something positive and constructive. I’m exasperated and concerned Gemini. I know you’re tired. You may not be sure who you are or who you want to be anymore…It’s scary not knowing the future or having a plan. So take a deep breath. Ground yourself. Let fear and frustration go. Listen to the world—not the noise from media, but nature, your support group, your favourite song… Ground yourself, meditate and let the sanity back in. You will get over this, if you allow yourself to stand still and be quiet for at least a few minutes everyday. And for those of you who can: consider getting a dog, a cat or a tarantula(?). Whatever.

 

Cancer

It’s imperative you stay out of your shell, at least till after mid-month.

The first few days of September may be a bit slow and heavy. Worries about finances or getting a new job may trick you into thinking it’s going to be another one of those months. But surprise, surprise! A new offer brings security and more money to you. While it challenges you to get out of your comfort zone, persevere and you could find yourself travelling very far with this opportunity.

Mid-month may see some disappointment in love and relationships when something you’ve planned for a long time falls through because of a trip. Use the time to get ahead in your projects so when you’re back with your beloved, you’ve got a longer stretch of quality time together.

September comes to an end with spiritual revelations and greater clarity as to your hopes and dreams. You may find yourself very popular on social media, and will need lots of rest too. Life will move faster, as much of what has been delayed earlier in the year begins to happen all at once. It’s tiring, but exciting!

 

Leo

Looks like just the kind of month you’ve been wanting, Leo!

Wow! Looks like someone’s getting a long-held wish coming true early this month. Even better, it may be in your love-life. If not, it concerns something you feel very passion about. An Aries or a boss may try to stand in your way, but honestly, this looks so good that it would take a lot for this opportunity to pass you by.

Mid-September may find you fretting over funding or the start of something new. If it’s a loan, you’re sure to get it. And if it’s a bonus, it may be bigger than expected. Invest wisely and you’ll have more to celebrate later. For some, there’s a little one on the way. It’s a good time to start thinking school fees.

September ends on a restful note with at least a little time out. Some may be going on an overseas trip, a few on a pilgrimage (Avalon and places of historical interest). Others may gain a promotion or find a new position at a better location. Travel and moving into more positive situations looks excellent and unavoidable. There’s so much for you to celebrate, Leo. Enjoy!

Catch you next month 😀

Tarotscopes August 2017

#writerstarot

by Leenna

August looks like a mixed-bag for most of us, with many of us consolidating progress and on ideas made in June and July. For some, it’s still cosmic exam time, while for others it’s time to break glass-ceilings in both business and love.

*only for entertainment purposes.

 

Leo

Like good cheese, you’re maturing well, Leo.

August starts off on a beautiful note with a hope or dream within reach or being realised. This may be the time when you find new routes to cherished dreams or people. Your optimism will be high and your spirituality strong, especially when you are interacting with nature. The term ‘clear skies’ come to mind, allowing you to see further with understanding.

Your optimism matures into a greater commitment on an emotional or spiritual level come mid-month. Emotional reconciliation or renewed determination to stick to a person or plan finds you considering new never-before-thought-of paths. While this may seem scary, you’re a pioneer at heart (or with heart) so explore till your heart’s content.

August ends on a stable, less confusing note for you. While plans and ideas move or grow more slowly than you’d like, you’ll feel more grounded and content with your broad future plans/vision, a greater connection to your life-purpose and even a greater connection to your ancestors or a suppressed part of yourself.

 

Virgo

The month begins on a strait-laced note on the surface but has a definitely more fun-feeling under the surface.

Libras are significant in your life at the start of the month, bringing some insight with a touch of humour. While others may think of you as somewhat unforgiving over some aspects just now, your playfulness and compassion will pop-up at the most unexpected times. Expect puppy dogs and little kids to either cry at the sight of you or run after you in delight! Through it all, you’ll have clarity come to you at the oddest moments.

Mid-August may see you labelled as a lone-wolf at work or in other communities. Recognition may be hard to find or denied you by some. Ignore them and continue the good-work, unless you decide to go your own way. The abundance or monetary rewards you seek may be a little late in coming, so plan accordingly.

The month ends on a similar note for you as Leo. Long-term plans with most Leo’s would therefore work out well as you’ll be on the same page with the same concerns and understanding of each other’s problem-solving. Investment in mining may work out well for you, especially if you have the longer-terms in sight, a connection to the land being utilised, and a concern for the environmental impact and rehabilitation. Planting and reforestation will also make you happy and bring you internal peace. It’s all go with green, Virgo.

 

Libra

Choose paths wisely at the beginning at the month or lighten your social calendar to ease the strain on yourself.

August begins on a decisive note for you. You’re done being…vacillating. You’re done missing opportunities. And it is a great time for you to say ‘yes’ to the new more often—but in moderation, Libra. Choose one path and stick with it—at least for now:-D

More decisions come around mid-month, but at least this time, they’re more clear-cut, perhaps involving money or a business partnership. You may want to call on Virgo and ask for a play-date as their unexpected humour will bring out your own sense of humour and playfulness.

A busy, busy, end of month for you, perhaps even stressful. Too many ideas, too little optimism and maybe a little bit of paralysis caused by inaction/self-doubt. Or perhaps a series of late nights.  You’ll be needing extra sleep for sure.

Scorpio

Be wise and energise, Scorpio.

It’s a fertile period for you at the beginning of the month. Ideas, creations, and the means to ground them into reality are all yours for the asking and taking. Be kind (especially to Virgos who are your good-luck charms this month) and allow your warmth and generosity to surface once more. Friendships will grow stronger in this way.

Mid-August could bring some brushes with legal-eagles. Contracts will be fair (especially if you have your own eagle-eyes) and you’ll be beholden to promises just as much as your co-signatures. For those in love or considering marriage, be aware of the karmic forces at play and decide now if you’re in it for the long-haul, because this flight looks like a non-stop.

August ends on a lovely social and happy note for you. Whatever your mood, the fun and playful side of life is sure to keep tapping you on the shoulder like a game of tag. For those in New Zealand or visiting, a cultural show or art exhibition will inspire you and prove more life-enhancing than anticipated. Watch your alcohol intake and remember that the best kind of fun leaves you feeling better for days after, not worse.

Sagittarius

Fly high, Sagittarius. It’s time to feel alive again!

August begins on a hectic note for you. Delayed from June, you’ll be flooded by news, messages, loads of emails… Why not run off to the wilds for a day or two and let your soul build better filters for modern living. But don’t forget the bug-spray. Otherwise, it’s a passionate time for you, with maybe a holiday romance or a business deal/career move at a new location.

Mid-month finds you feeling vulnerable. Perhaps that romance is turning serious or you’d forgotten that bug-spray and are now paying the price or medical fee. Either way, you may feel off-balance or dizzy at the speed at which your life changed. Take heart and be easy on yourself. Adjustments take time. And every new experience or undertaking has a learning-curve.

You’re taking flight, most probably physically. If not, your ideas are doing it for you. Freedom comes with a price this time, and you may wonder if it’s perhaps too much. But stretching your wings is good for you, and it maybe that this is just what you need to get out of your mental and physical comfort-zone (unless you have a serious medical condition). When last did you feel so alive, Sagittarius? When last? Stretch those wings and go with the winds of change.

Capricorn

New spiritual seeking for you, and a small change at home.

August begins on a spiritual note for you. You may feel that there’s ‘more to life than this’ and start seeking new spiritual pathways or expressions of self. This may bring up some latent talents or gifts which may be of benefit to others around you.

Mid-month may bring what feels like a sulkiness when it looks like re-organisation of your home or other home-related plans may fall through or be delayed. Your spiritual/emotional quest may also be put on hold as you deal with more mundane issues and family needs. Some love relationships may feel a little stale and you may want to take a short vacation with your loved-one.

The month comes to an end with a busy, busy feel. Perhaps you’ve got the green-light on your home-related idea or plans and it’s all systems go. Try not to DIY all of it as it may be a too taxing on your time. Make time to play and relax in a natural beauty spot. It’s just the recharge you need! This is when your greatest insights will come to you. Take note!

Aquarius

August may echo an earlier part of the year. Consider this a cosmic test and don’t make the same mistakes twice!

The month begins with some hidden agendas. It may be yours, it may be others. But caution is advised, as is honesty—especially with yourself! It may be all too easy to convince yourself you’re ready for a new experience or job, and that you have all the resources you need to win through any situation. Others may call you out when you least expect it. For this part of the month, stick to what you know and what you’ve mastered.

Mid-August brings a short-term tightening of the budget. Part-time work or beginning your own business may also prove very challenging with the Mercury Retrograde affecting us for most the month. Do your research and your sums (this is not the time to let your money take care of itself) and make sensible plans. Work, or what feels like work, may make playtime and me-time scarce. Schedule a pj-day or two and feel better for it.

The month ends on an emotional note. You may feel far from your family and friends, or perhaps you’re finding it difficult to make trust-worthy new relationships. Your beloved may also be travelling or so busy that you hardly see them. Try painting or another artistic expression to lift your spirits and meet the kind of souls who speak to you just now.

 

Pisces

Weed out the worry and plant seeds of hope into your future.

August begins on a good stable note for you, allowing you to finally make some long-term plans.  Explore your child-like creativity to find more opportunities in work and in relationships.

Mid-August may bring a stern, difficult air-sign into your sphere. You may not share the same sense of humour, and it may be very easy to  misunderstand each other. Take the time to clarify your messages, double-check for errors and ensure you’re following the correct formats/procedures.

Late August brings a stuck-in-school feeling where you want nothing more than to go out and play, but work or studies prove too demanding. Celebrations may be put on hold as your workload grows heavy. Keep your focus, stay grounded and you’ll get through this all that quicker. Distractions, welcome though they may be, will only delay that overdue fun-time.

 Aries

Ooh, Aries! It’s a wonderfully good month for you in terms of love and partnerships.

The month begins with you a little preoccupied on future plans, but firmly in control. It’s a month for trying out new work systems and ensuring that structures in your life are firm and trust-worthy. You’ll be in demand for your skills, or recognised for your achievements. Just the kind of thing you love 😀

Mid-August brings in the lovey-dovey stuff or a wonderful new partnership in another area of your life, along with a whole lot of joy and reciprocal feeling. Either way, it looks like the start of a beautiful friendship. One or two of you may finally make a life-changing choice, so resolving a long-standing conflict in your life. Whatever your situation, go with the flow.

August ends on an uplifting note. Matters which seemed stranded, will float once more, and forward movement to calmer waters will be the result. You know what you want. You know what you need. Now watch as it all comes to you 😀

 

Taurus

August brings new beginnings in creativity, or new ways of communicating. Maybe even both!

The month begins with you in an upbeat mood which allows others to see your playful side. New opportunities will result, and you may be asked to solve some issues in an ingenious way. Don’t panic! Play with the problem and it will magically reveal its secrets to you.

Mid-month finds your social calendar full as everyone demands your amazing presence. Outdoor events will be your favourites, which may bring some new romance for those nights under the stars. Or perhaps, you’ll be meeting stars. Or even seeing stars (hopefully not for all the wrong reasons!). Whatever your starry-eyed situation, remember not to overlook the obvious, and don’t overspend.

August ends on a lower note as you realise where your fair-weather friends disappeared to, or find yourself out of pocket because of some overspending. Try not to pour energy into a situation out of sheer optimism. Ensure that you have some basis in fact to continue your involvement with certain people or contracts. Save your optimism for those projects and people closest to your heart, including some overlooked charities.

Gemini

Life begins again, Sleeping Beauty.

August begins with you in wonderful spirits as you catalogue all that you are grateful for—and there’s so many new wonderful developments to grow your list for the first nine days! Lucky, lucky gem that you are—everyone may now begin seeing you in the light that you wish to be seen—roughened edges or not!

Mid-month brings some much needed fun mental stimulation, perhaps in the form of a long-overdue trip. Whatever way you’re going, it’s a path unique to you which few others can follow you down. Time to revel in your mind, your ideas, and your clear way of looking at the world.

The month ends on with a jarring need to ground those earlier ideas. This may slow the pace you’ve set yourself, but it’s sorely needed to consolidate all that you’re building and to secure your achievements and those dreams which began coming true earlier in the month. Don’t lose yourself this time, bring things down to earth and stick to tangibles at month-end.

 

Cancer

As the month grows, so do you.

August begins with you having an itch to act or for movement, or just to do something…different! The cards say wait. Find your balance. Hold the ‘steady’ position for a tad longer so you don’t misstep on the ‘go’.

Mid-August sees you in a powerful position, self-confident and full of ideas. Others will consult with you, and the sky will be the limit in terms of your creativity and ability to influence others. Use this power wisely and to help benefit others too. And if you’re trying to catch someone special’s eye, they’ll be spellbound by you without you even trying!

August ends with you consolidating your position and setting up new systems or structures to allow for more stability and sustainability in your life. Recognition comes on all fronts. And if that special someone hasn’t approached you yet, they will now!
