Weekly TarotScope August 10 to 16, 2020

Well this is an interesting and coincidental card combination for this week, considering the image I have for the recent post on Venus entering Cancer… that’s quite the synchronicity.

The Hermit Card is actually ruled by Virgo, and Virgo season is coming up in a couple of weeks.

The Strength Card is ruled by Leo, which is the season we are in now and we have a New Moon in Leo coming up.

With this combination, we are reminded to prepare and get things in order this week so we can develop the right energy to deal with life’s variety coming up ahead.

Virgo likes things orderly… cleaned up and organized. This can be a great time to prioritize taking care of yourself just like we see with Venus in Cancer now.

Some alone-time to organize and collect yourself and feel more in tune with your body and mind is recommended this week.

With a world full of activity, sometimes it’s necessary to calm down so you can deal with the variety of situations and circumstances happening around you. Some attention on good self care and introspection can help you to regain strength and energy so you can tackle the things that need to get done.


If you feel like life is a struggle and demands a lot of your energy, returning to a place of calm and doing things for yourself is a healthy way to reboot your energy and feel better.

If you are dealing with a project, this can be a good time to consider how to minimize the distractions so you can focus on what needs your attention most.

In one way or another just about everyone has some sort of stress to deal with in life, so this week we have a nice reminder that taking care of yourself should be your first priority.

Also keep in mind that you don’t always have to tackle things with great force to get the job done. Sometimes taking a gentler approach can be better. As pointed out in the Housewives Tarot, sometimes just letting the dishes soak instead of going crazy with a scouring pad is actually a much better option… you get your dirty dishes clean a little slower, but you don’t destroy them in the process scratching them up and you don’t exhaust yourself, but let nature do it’s thing.

Instead of dealing with life from a rushed, stressful perspective, it’s best to take care of yourself and your personal needs as priority so you can handle things from a calmer, smarter point of view.

When people around you are all worked up and in a tizzy about something, you can reclaim your personal power, come back down to earth and do what’s best for your own well being.

Enjoy the warm summer Sun in Leo while it’s here.

With Mars in Aries in difficult aspect to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn this August, personal time to take care of your well being is highly recommended.


Success! You're on the list.
