Ready to make waves?
Finally, Venus retrograde will finish up as this planet of love and beauty goes direct on the 3rd. From start to finish, we have a few noteworthy astrological events this week that can seriously help us envision new paths for our future if we’re willing to go with the flow and get to work.
With that in mind, let’s see the advice the Tarot has to offer you as you move forward.
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for August 28 – September 3, 2023
King of Wands
Aries has the world in their hands… or at least, it might feel that way this week!
The King of Wands is bright, bold, and ready to lead and take action (just like Aries on a good day). You’re feeling yourself again, and it’s finally time to take hold of what you want and go after it.
Speak up for yourself, start an engaging conversation, make a bold decision, brave a new adventure, or maybe harness this energy into a creative project.
The choice is yours!
7 of Cups (Reversed)
Taurus needs to remember that sometimes, there’s not always a “right answer.”
The 7 of Cups reversed hints that this week, you may be prone to overthinking and getting lost in your own imagination.
Although there are a billion different ways that you could proceed, that doesn’t mean that you have to land on a singular “correct” choice. Life isn’t always as simple as the Universe handing you some options with a pass-or-fail outcome.
So just keep in mind that making a choice is sometimes better than trying to find the “right one.”
3 of Wands (Reversed)
Gemini wants to move forward but may feel stunted in their progress.
With the 3 of Wands reversed, you’ll feel like you’re waiting for everything to come together so that you can make the right steps forward, but something also feels like it’s always holding you back.
You may feel like your patience can’t last forever, and some Geminis may also wonder if there’s anything actually out there on the horizon waiting for you right back.
Although this period of waiting may seem like stagnancy, remember that sometimes an unintentional resting and planning period is just what we need to prepare.
2 of Wands
Cancer, you’re ready to set off into the sunset with some new plans of action.
The 2 of Wands is a positive omen for new opportunities, planning for the future, and setting yourself up for success. This card is great for travel, new creative ambitions, and entrepreneurial desires.
With the energy of a Full Moon at your disposal, this week is shaping up to be a productive time for intention-setting for Cancer.
What are you planning to use this powerful energy for?
7 of Wands (Reversed)
Leo, you’re not always meant to go it alone.
This week, the 7 of Wands reversed asks that you slow down and put at least a few tasks down. You’re an ambitious and driven soul, but sometimes you bite off more than you can chew.
Although it may not jive with your overwhelming desire to “power through” hard times all by your independent self, you may need to be willing to ask for help this time.
We can all use a bit of a rest day… and yes, even the wild, bold lion too.
5 of Pentacles
Virgo, we all go through hard times every now and then.
This week, it’s your turn with the 5 of Pentacles on the table for you. This card forecasts cloudy skies, specifically in the realm of finances, career, and the home.
While not all Virgos will literally take a tangible loss, you may still feel a hole growing in this area of your life, like something is just missing.
However, remember that having space somewhere just means that there’s more room for creating something new.
The Hermit (Reversed)
Last week, you were pulling yourself out of a funk. This week, you’re still working with the learning curve of remembering how to do life without just solitude.
Although Libras are known for their social tendencies, you’re also quite a big thinker. This card is asking you to now also pull yourself out of your own head so that you can engage with the world around you more directly.
5 of Swords
Scorpio is facing a somewhat ferocious energy this week.
The 5 of Swords is not exactly a friendly face to see. You may be dealing with tricky people, lying, and even betrayal or people cheating to get ahead. Some of these actions may also be more covert in nature.
Of course, the key is to adapt to these circumstances without also getting sucked into the madness. Keep the witty and sharp aspects of this card, but remove the ill intentions and less-than-savory actions.
King of Pentacles (Reversed)
Sagittarius, you can’t control everything.
The King of Pentacles, when reversed, can point to an overwhelming desire to control your own possessions, finances, and career trajectory. You may overly fixate on your material plans and stability.
This anxiety about what to do next in this area of your life is human and understandable. It is important to work through it rather than trying to get around it.
We can’t know everything or always feel secure about everything either. Remember that you can only control… what you can control.
Ace of Wands (Reversed)
This week, Capricorn may not even know where to begin.
The Ace of Wands is usually a beacon of light and inspiration for new ambitions, creative projects, and entrepreneurial ideas.
However, the reversal of this card can feel like setbacks, burnout, and the anxiety that sometimes comes from not knowing where to start.
And while this is a frustrating energy to work through, the productive and problem-solving Capricorn is absolutely capable of doing so.
9 of Pentacles
Time to enjoy the fruits of your bounty, Aquarius.
The 9 of Pentacles indicates that it’s been a long time coming for you to enjoy yourself instead of just working and toiling away.
Now that it’s time to get some quality “me time,” consider planning at least one day of self-care and relaxation. And don’t consider what may be good for others or for the world right now.
What do you want to do, Aquarius?
5 of Cups (Reversed)
Pisces, you’re trying to move on to bigger and better things.
Although the 5 of Cups can point to dissatisfaction and dwelling over uncomfortable emotions, the past, and previous losses, the reversal indicates that you’re ready to take new strides.
It’s not always easy to just “move on” and rid yourself of the past. However, this week certainly seems to be a productive week to do so for Pisces.
