The final stretch of Mercury retrograde is here — are you ready to make the most of it?
This week, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, will be moving into lovely Libra energy, where it feels right at home, on the 29th. Additionally, Mercury will go out of retrograde on October 2nd — talk about a way to close out the week!
That’s your briefing on this week’s astroweather, but what does the Tarot have to say? (We personally prefer getting not just one but two different sets of wisdom and spiritual insight to understand the changes occurring around us).
Pocket the weekly transits in your mind for now. Up next, your weekly Tarotscope awaits!
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for September 26 – October 2, 2022
6 of Wands
Aries, you’re getting the rewards you may have been waiting on for a while!
This week is all about the applause. The 6 of Wands may not be the most tangible kind of reward, as it’s not about money or long-term gain. However, that doesn’t make it any less valid.
For the bold ram, sometimes all you need is a bit of a pat on the back — a metaphorical parade or trophy, a recognition of the work you’ve completed.
It’s time to accept a little applause right now, demand some respect, and accept a compliment with grace.
3 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Taurus tends to be more of a grounded, stable type.
This week, however, your foundation might be shaken up a bit. More specifically, the 3 of Pentacles reversed points toward your connections and collaborations.
It might feel like your current vision for the work at hand isn’t clicking with others right now or that they’re just not listening. Arguments can brew up quickly here if you’re not careful, so the key for this week is knowing when to walk away when things seem like they’re going nowhere productive!

7 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Struggling to get the job done, Gemini?
This week, you’re trying your best to put plans in order and be productive with the work at hand. For some of you, this may be personal projects and endeavors; for others, this may be your career.
But with the 7 of Pentacles reversed, procrastination is running high, and it’s hard to get motivated about anything at all.
The remedy for this? Be patient with yourself, Gemini. It’s not a race to the finish.
7 of Wands
It may feel like it’s Cancer against the world right now.
This week, the sensitive crab is undergoing a bit of an uphill battle. The 7 of Wands depicts you fighting against the odds, working overtime to expend an adequate amount of effort.
It may feel like you’re battling the mythical Hydra — once you cut off one head, another emerges. It seems to never end.
But ultimately, the tides will turn Cancer. Keep it going, and trust that no battle can go on for too long.
5 of Wands (Reversed)
This week, the conflict and battles you may face come from within, Leo.
The enemy isn’t outside but inside. You may be experiencing a lot of self-doubt and concern this week about what you’re actually capable of, or overall find yourself fighting with your own heart and mind internally.
It’s likely with the 5 of Wands reversed that a lot of these ideas weren’t originally your own but have been internalized by societal expectations.
Fight these “enemies” off just as bravely as you would with any other conflict, and you’ll be sure to still come out victorious (as usual).
2 of Wands
Virgo is embracing an air of adventure, whimsy, and excitement.
The 2 of Wands showers the week ahead with all of these things and more, if you’ll allow it into your life, that is! Virgos tend to be more well-known for your planned, well-manicured lifestyle with a plan B for everything.
“Right now” is about embracing a bit of the unknown and acting with some spontaneity.
Let the spark and passion in, and have some fun, Virgo!
2 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Do you believe in coincidences, Libra?
Some things are a bit too eerily coincidental to just be… coincidental. For example, this week, you have the same exact card as last week, the same position, and everything.
That’s right. You have the 2 of Pentacles reversed for the week ahead. So you’re already pretty familiar with this theme of potential imbalance, juggling too much, and biting off more than you can chew.
So here’s round two: it’s time to put a few things down so that you’re no longer playing the role of the juggler.
Scorpio, this week is all about merging, alchemizing, and making some magic.
Temperance is the angelic alchemist — a card of supreme creativity, patience, grace, and intentional touch. This week, you may seek its presence (or try to embody it yourself).
Do keep in mind that magic word “patience,” though. Although you may want to channel some beauty, love, and creativity into your life, Temperance must still be called in gently.
6 of Pentacles
Sagittarius, it may be worth giving this week (even more than you’re getting).
This means being generous and open-minded with what you’re willing to offer up — and if it can’t be literal money, consider offering energy in other ways (time and presence, for example).
The 6 of Pentacles is not just generosity plainly and simply, however. It also warns of doing generous things just for later reward, or for attention or pats on the back.
This week is about offering up your resources for the sake of it and trusting that it’s for a good reason.
10 of Cups
This week, you’ve turned that blockage upside-down. This card of contentment, joy, fulfillment, and more is now more accessible to you — perhaps it’s easier to focus on your dreams’ long-term vision.
This doesn’t mean it’s instantly sunshine and rainbows necessarily, but that the road to getting there seems a lot clearer now.
And with Capricorn’s vision and work ethic, we know you can get that part done!
9 of Cups
Aquarius, this week is all about your hopes, dreams, and deepest desires.
The 9 of Cups spotlights what you really want — also known literally as “the wish card.” It’s time to be intentional about those desires and maybe a bit dreamy and imaginative.
This might also be the time to pay attention to your literal dreams and see what your unconscious and heart have to say on an intuitive level.
And you do put your heart and intentions into this. You may find that the Universe rewards that good vibe.
4 of Cups
Pisces, right now, your heart may feel a little… still.
And by “still,” we mean it may feel too still. Stability and security are good things, but the 4 of Cups hints that you may be leaning more into boredom and stagnancy right now.
There is a time and a place for emotional safety and living within your comfort zone, but perhaps now isn’t it.
While it’s good to guard your heart against potential harm, there’s no fun in sitting in stillness permanently — let yourself venture into the unknown too.
How Will You Use Your Tarotscope?
Even though you can forecast the future with the stars and cards, it’s worth keeping some element of surprise still in your life.
This is why, after all, the Universe gives us forecasts and not exact, outlined stories. The map is written, but you still get to decide which roads and rivers to traverse (and also how you want to approach the journey).
Your Tarotscope is a nifty guide for the times ahead, but you’re still in control of how you’d like to let those times into your life.
Will you approach with braveness and boldness? Creativity and spontaneity? Or a bit of all of the above?
