This month's Tarotscope features the Wild Unknown Tarot and the Arcana of Astrology.

Leo (July 24 – August 23)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Strength

This month you may feel moody and out of control of your emotions (Page of Cups reversed). The solution lies in honoring your creative abilities (High Priestess). Through creative processes, you can regain an internal sense of balance and awareness of your intuition.

Virgo (August 24 – September 23)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Hermit

Uncomfortable emotions arise when you face aspects of yourself that you don't like so much (Moon reversed). Accept help from a partner or close friend who will stick by you while you work it out (Lovers). They'll help you stay on a fruitful path. 

Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Justice

You may feel out of touch with your intuition and second-guess your choices (Empress reversed). Don't dwell on these emotions. You're moving into a new phase of life (Chariot). Although the road can be bumpy, the forward movement is good. 

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Death

The fruits of your labor remain unclear, and you're tempted to push yourself even harder (7 of Pentacles). Instead, take a deep breath, get some rest, be patient (4 of Swords). This will unfold in their own time. 

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Temperance

Obstacles appear to prevent you from focusing your energy as you wish (Knight of Wands). Take time to help others this month (6 of Pentacles). Focusing on their goals will renew you and give you a fresh perspective on your own path.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Devil

Your path no longer makes sense as it once seemed to (7 of Pentacles reversed). Instead of lingering in the sadness of disillusionment, view this as an opportunity to reconnect with your true path through openness and receptivity (Ace of Cups reversed).

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Star

You're having trouble maintaining enthusiasm for your work (Queen of Wands). Ground yourself in the emotional abundance of your family life (10 of Cups). You'll find you're blessed beyond what you first recognized.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Moon

Feeling beset by self-doubt or low self-worth (5 of Pentacles reversed)? This is because you're not doing what you know in your heart of hearts is right for you (Star reversed). Be honest with yourself about what you want. Then go get it! You're worth it.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Emperor

Immoderate emotions cause disharmony in a significant relationship (Temperance reversed). If you're willing to accept responsibility for your part, you can not only mend the relationship but help it flourish in a lasting way (Lovers reversed).

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Hierophant

Disappointment with a situation prevents you from seeing the opportunities before you (5 of Cups). By investing hard work, you will find you have the intellectual and emotional resources you need to move in a positive direction (8 of Pentacles reversed).

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Lovers

So many people are demanding your time. You can't seem to get the alone time you need (Hermit). The good news is you're coming back down to earth after engaging in unrealistic plans. Embrace the reality check (Queen of Pentacles reversed).

Cancer (June 22 – July 23)
Corresponding Major Arcana: Chariot

Anxiety may cause nightmares or sleeplessness (9 of Swords). Reject feelings of helplessness when people oppose your ideas (7 of Wands). You're capable of making them happen even if it means uncomfortable conflicts.
