Weekly tarotscopes: Lovers drawn for Virgo as The Magician manifests for Gemini

Is love in the air? Well, The Lovers are on the cards for Virgo in the tarotscopes for the week starting Monday, August 30.

And The Magician conjures up opportunities for Gemini.

Nia True from Compass Tarot provides a one card reading for all signs of the zodiac.

Virgo – The Lovers

Some say that we can’t love others, unless we love ourselves first; others that until we have been loved well, we can’t know how to love ourselves or anyone else. Perhaps the truth is that both of these things apply, at different times, for all of us. This week, where can you love, or be loved, just as yourself, Virgo?

Libra – VI of Pentacles

Independence is usually seen as a desirable quality in our culture, but this could be a week to question that. Self-reliance is great, but if taken to unhelpful extremes, it can get in the way of our relationships with others. Where might this be true for you Libra, and is it something you’d like to change?

Scorpio – V of Cups

Change happens to all of us, and sometimes it brings with it a sense of loss. Whilst we need to mourn what has gone, it’s important not to try and cling to either the grief or the loss itself, Scorpio. What is for you won’t go by you, so allow yourself to look up and around and see what else is on offer.

Sagittarius – Knight of Wands

If you’re feeling drawn to test boundaries, it could be worth following that line of thinking to see where it takes you, Sagittarius. This week you might want to question whether the things you’ve thought or been told are impossible, might not only be possible, but a tenable course of action…

Capricorn – King of Pentacles

It takes time to build something of great value and the work of doing so requires considered thought, followed by self-discipline. Easier said than done, but if you needed a reminder that it is likely to ultimately be worth it Capricorn, this is it. Patience is a virtue; equally, don’t forget to enjoy the views along the way.

Aquarius – Queen of Pentacles

Your invitation this week is to explore how you balance meeting the needs of others with taking care of your own needs. It could be that you’ve been a bit swamped by the demands of life and those around you, neglecting yourself a little and that you now need to make up for that – be kind to yourself, Aquarius.

Pisces – III of Swords

If you’re feeling as though fears have been realised, and that sadness or loss have arrived this week, take heart, Pisces. Similarly, if grief from the past has unexpectedly circled back round. If you allow the difficult feelings to come up, and trust that you have the capacity to handle them, they will pass on through.

Aries – Page of Pentacles

If you can make time to unplug, go outside, breath in some fresh air and leave the clock behind, do. The Greeks made a distinction between time as the timely moment for action – Kairos , and time in the chronological sense – Chronos . What might Kairos look like for you, this week Aries? What is this the moment for?

Taurus – VII of Pentacles

If you have the opportunity this week, take a pause and have a look around. Take in the view, notice what’s feeling good, what progress has been made, and what still needs to be done. Pay particular attention to anything related to your body, money or home, Taurus, and be responsive in these areas.

Gemini – The Magician

It could be that this week, you are perfectly placed to finally realise, or at least take some significant steps towards realising, a goal or intention you’ve had for a while, Gemini. What might that look like? Remember that we can choose what we do with our opportunities – grab them, or allow them to pass by.

Cancer – Ace of Swords

A change of perspective might be needed to shift you into a different gear, Cancer. We aren’t just defined by our experiences, but also how we interpret them. Jane Hirschfield’s short poem I sat in the sun might be a relevant read for you. Either way, try noticing the stories that roll through your mind as the week unfolds.

Leo – The Empress

This is a week for nurturance, sensuality, enjoying physical pleasures and looking at your harvest, Leo. If you want to go deeper, you could think about what yield your labours have brought, and how that feels. What about the relationship between the work you put in, and the pleasure gained from it?
