After what may have felt like an unending Venus retrograde, the planet of love and beauty will finally go direct on the 3rd. However, we won’t catch our breath for long, as Jupiter will go retrograde in Taurus on the 4th.
Tired of the back and forth? One last stop — Mercury will end its retrograde and go direct on the 15th.
Plus, we’ll have our regular round of Moon events this month too. The New Moon in Virgo will take place on the 14th, and the Full Moon in Aries will occur on the 29th. (By the way, did we also mention that Libra season will take flight on the 23rd?).
Look, we never said keeping up with the world’s changes was simple. But it doesn’t have to be all that overwhelming, as we also have consulted the Tarot (using one Major Arcana and one Minor Arcana each) to set you off on the right foot with summarizing guidance and information suited to you.
Your September 2023 Tarotscopes
The Chariot & Queen of Cups
Aries, you’re taking charge of your life in a whole different way this month.
With The Chariot up your sleeve, it’s obvious that you’re hoping to seize control over your own life — independently, successfully, and on your own terms.
However, the Queen of Cups notes that this is emotionally and spiritually rooted for you. You’re trying to make progress in your relationships with others, your connection with yourself, and your control over your intuition and emotions.
In other words, it’s not just all about material success… even if on the outside looking in, the power you are emanating may indeed seem palpable!
Strength (Reversed) & Page of Swords
Taurus may not feel like their usual thriving, abundant self, but that isn’t stopping you from making great strides.
Although Strength reversed indicates that your general sense of self, balance, and well-being is just a bit “off” this month, the Page of Swords shows a curious, expressive, and motivated spirit nonetheless breaking through.
This September, you’re breaking through obstacles with a “can-do” attitude and a fresh outlook.
Lately, you haven’t even heard of the concept of “giving up” — Taurus’ classic stubbornness has actually never looked so good!
The Moon & 3 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Gemini doesn’t have all of the answers, but neither does anyone else.
You may be feeling lost, confused, and full of an overwhelming desire to seek the truth… and yet, so uncertain as to where to start. And it doesn’t seem like asking for help is doing much, either.
This month is about going within, discovering that sometimes asking questions is just as important as knowing the answer and making peace with the unknown.
The Hanged Man (Reversed) & 8 of Wands
Cancer is sick and tired of just sitting around and doing nothing.
Although you’re generally known for homebody tendencies, The Hanged Man reversed, and the 8 of Wands both point to a sudden spurt of action-oriented focus. You don’t want to just think about stuff — you want to do, act, and create.
For some, this may be a spurt of productive energy in your work. For others, it may be about branching out of your comfort zone and meeting new people, going out, and seeing the world.
Whatever it is for you, make sure to enjoy it, Cancer.
The Hierophant & 4 of Wands
Leo may have experienced a whirlwind of chaos, but you’re now looking to rebuild from the rubble.
The Hierophant points to teacher-like tendencies; you may feel drawn to sharing information, opening up new worlds of expertise, or maybe even learning something new yourself.
Additionally, the 4 of Wands indicates that this month is community-centric. You’re connecting with others around you and enjoying the company of friends, loved ones, and even casual acquaintances.
Basically, you’ve got a wonderful recipe for good times with a healthy serving of productivity and learning.
The Lovers (Reversed) & King of Swords (Reversed)
Virgo — pause. Take a deep breath. This month can spell disaster if you don’t pull back and rethink every so often.
Your communication with others feels shaky at best; miscommunications may arise easily, and your sense of self-confidence in what you’re expressing is also not at ease.
The remedy to this is slowing down, catching your breath, and thinking (but not overthinking) before you speak. Time apart from others and allowing space and time to heal can also do wonders.
The Magician & 8 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Libra is feeling creative but may run out of steam to get it all done.
The Magician is a positive omen for your ideas, pool of inspiration, and imagination. You’re feeling more inspired and connected to your sense of creativity.
However, the 8 of Pentacles reversed warns of burning yourself out too quickly. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
With that reminder in your heart, you should otherwise have a very uplifting, fun, and productive month full of your own innovations.
The Fool (Reversed) & Knight of Swords (Reversed)
Scorpio is sometimes known for their deep and brooding wisdom… but this month, you may struggle to connect with that side of yourself.
You’re suddenly feeling out of your element. Everything you think or dream doesn’t materialize in the way you expect it to, and cleaning the slate and starting over isn’t easy either.
However, we all collect a few (metaphorical) bruises and skinned knees from time to time, even when we’re trying our best. As long as you don’t give up and keep picking yourself up to try again, trust that you’ll find your way again.
The High Priestess (Reversed) & 6 of Swords
Sagittarius may have a difficult time connecting with their intuition this month, but that isn’t stopping you from making strides.
The High Priestess reversed notes that you aren’t as sure about what is meant to be coming next or why you are where you are. It’s not that you’re disconnected entirely from your inner voice, but perhaps you’ve hit a blind spot in the general state of your life for now.
The good news is that the 6 of Swords notes that you don’t need to know the outcomes of anything right now. You’re asked to take leaps of faith forward, cut out the old, and leave room for new things.
And yes, you should do those things with or without the knowledge of what is exactly coming next.
The Empress & 10 of Wands (Reversed)
Capricorn has some good things cooking, and you’re not letting the world get to you.
The Empress is a positive signal for your personal abundance, material success, and creative ambitions. You have some wonderful ideas in the works, and they have the potential to bear incredible fruit later down the line.
Although the 10 of Wands could indicate many stressors and anxieties on top of that, the reversal of this card is an honorable effort on your end to not let those things get to you.
This month, you’re not letting anyone or anything stand in your way… as you should.
The Emperor (Reversed) & 10 of Cups (Reversed)
Aquarius is having a hard time seeing the bigger picture this month.
While the 10 of Cups reversed forecasts some dissatisfaction with the general trajectory of your path, The Emperor reversed also notes that some of that has to do with your lack of control over your life.
It may feel like you’re always at the mercy of something larger — forces outside of your control. So connecting with your long-term dreams and ambitions can feel particularly distant.
Feel the frustrated feelings that you need to feel. But an optimistic, forward-thinking, and can-do attitude will be necessary to make any breakthroughs eventually.
The Wheel of Fortune (Reversed) & King of Cups
Pisces may not know what’s going on with their future, but they know what’s going on with themselves.
The Wheel of Fortune reversed can feel like a whole lot of bad luck, like the Universe is sometimes conspiring against you. It may feel like nothing you do is going as planned in September.
However, the King of Cups points to the expertise and wisdom that you do have. You know your own heart, your own dreams, and what you can compassionately give to others.
Trusting yourself when you can’t trust anything else is sometimes the best move you can make.
How to Use the Tarot
After collecting the general wisdom of the Tarot, you may wonder how you can use this age-old craft in a more personal, intuitive way.
Your Tarotscope can connect you to the wider umbrella of spiritual experiences that those similar to your astrological blueprint may undergo during similar times. However, there’s always more to the Tarot if you’re willing to dig deeper.
After purchasing your own deck, you can explore anything from Tarot spreads to the true meaning of reversed cards and beyond. Developing a more personal connection to the cards may enhance your understanding of your Tarotscope too!
