Tarotscopes, Your Tarot-Inspired Horoscopes For the Summer

by Sarah Potter


Five of Wands


Stand up for yourself, Gemini. Even when it might be slightly uncomfortable, conflict is an unavoidable part of life, and just pretending like everything is fine is not actually working anymore. Considering your current circumstances, it’s time to get more confident about discerning when it really is for the best to let something go versus addressing it head-on. There is nothing wrong with pushing back from time to time.


Queen of Wands


It’s your time to shine, Cancer. Go ahead, take your space in the spot- light because you have every reason to feel confident and radiant. This

is an excellent time to take major creative leaps and express yourself in novel ways. Dress how you want to dress, be who you want to be, live boldly and courageously because it is so wonderful to be wholly and unapologetically you. All eyes are on you, so dazzle them with a show!


Justice Reversed

JULY 23 TO AUG. 22

Show some accountability, Leo. We all make mistakes, but how we handle them shows our true character. It looks like something went

sideways here, so stop trying to justify your actions and just own what you did! There’s still time to clean up this mess and make things right before it gets any worse or leads to something far more problematic than necessary. An apology is a lovely place to begin.


Two of Swords Reversed

AUG. 23 TO SEPT. 22

Choose wisely, Virgo. Should you do this or should you do that? You really cannot go wrong here, and the decision is up to you, but please make a choice and stick to it! If you get too caught up in overthinking the possibilities, a fantastic opportunity could slip through your fingertips. Let your intuition guide you before time runs out.


Four of Pentacles Reversed

SEPT. 23 TO OCT. 22

Loosen your grip, Libra. It’s wonderful to hold high standards, but it’s something else entirely to hold yourself to unrealistic expectations

that are impossible to meet! You know that there is no such thing as total perfection, right? You can- not control every little detail because it will only make your head spin, so allow yourself to get a little messy and have some more fun, because life is for truly living!


The Star Reversed

OCT. 23 TO NOV. 21

Face the facts, Scorpio. It’s wonderful to remain hopeful and to see the best in a situation, but it’s a whole other notion to live in a complete

fantasy world! Expect to have a major reality check that supports you in seeing your current circum- stances with radical clarity. When something truly isn’t working, the best move you can make is to just let it go and move on. Something far better awaits.

The Magician

NOV. 22 TO DEC. 21

Have faith in your abilities, Sagittarius. When a dream opportunity presents itself to you this season, you should absolutely take it without hesitation! Try not to let the self-doubts creep in to psych you out and knock your confidence. You never know what will happen unless you try, and it would be a shame to let this moment pass you by when you have so much talent to offer.


The Chariot

DEC. 22 TO JAN. 19

Stay determined, Capricorn. You are embarking upon a major endeavor right now that will require your full attention, so do yourself a favor and give this moment your all. Don’t let any distractions or silly time wasters cause you to lose sight of your goals, because the sacrifices you make in the name of this opportunity will ultimately be worth it as you travel the road to success.


The Moon Reversed

JAN. 20 TO FEB. 18

Listen to your intuition, Aquarius. Your inner wisdom is a powerful tool that is always available to you—have you forgotten about that? The lack of clarity is not the issue here; rather, it’s the part of you that’s not believing your instincts that’s causing you problems. You know exactly what your gut has been telling you, yet you seem to be talking yourself out of what you already know to be true. Let’s just stop that right now!


Six of Swords Reversed


What are you waiting for, Pisces? The winds of change are rustling, but it feels like you have been trying to resist what you already know is true:

everything has gotten a little too comfortable lately, and it’s beyond time to expand and grow to seek out your next challenge! Don’t be afraid to explore your options and just try something (anything!) new. Every adventure requires taking a first step.


Death Reversed


Embrace what’s next, Aries. It feels like you have outgrown your current situation, and it’s time to make some necessary changes

right now. It’s totally understandable to be a little leery or full-on frightened, but I assure you that this

is for the best! Why avoid the inevitable? What awaits could be far better than you had ever previously imagined! You owe it to yourself to go for it.

Learn from your mistakes, Taurus. Not everything goes according to our plans, but it doesn’t mean that a miscalculation or a lapse in judgment equals an epic failure! What’s done is done and cannot be undone, so what is the point of beating yourself up here? Everything is a learning experience, so focus your energy on the future and what you can do differently next time to ensure your success.
