We may be in the middle of summer, but things are just beginning to heat up—astrologically speaking, at least. Your monthly Tarotscopes can bring clarity for both your sun and your rising sign, and you’ll need it in August. This month will see a shift from fiery Leo into earthly Virgo, which can leave things feeling a bit shaken up. We also just experienced a once-in-a-lifetime Uranus and the North Node conjunction on July 31 that may have left you feeling ready for something new.
Those aren’t the only significant astrological events this month. Mercury will enter Virgo on August 4, followed by Venus entering Leo and the full moon in Aquarius both occurring on the 11th. It’s a good moment to start thinking outside of the box and taking action toward the life you see for yourself. Keep channeling that energy as the sun enters Virgo on August 22 and before Uranus enters its retrograde period in Taurus on the 24th. This transit is notorious for slowing the pace of projects and motivation, so be sure to rest as needed toward the end of the month and avoid being too hard on yourself when you can’t seem to find your inspiration.
Don’t forget to celebrate how far you’ve already come this year. July began with a shift from watery Cancer energy into fiery Leo, which may have left you feeling all sorts of hot and cold. We ended June with a new moon in Cancer on the 28th, marking a time to set our intentions for the last half of the year toward what will truly make us feel happy and fulfilled. With Venus, the planet of love, beauty and money, entering fiery Aries in May, the month asked you to raise your standards on our life goals and think bigger.
April was a fertile time to plant your seeds of intention for the astrological year ahead, and we ended March with the full moon in Virgo, bringing us clarity on who or what we are ready to release in order to move forward with grace and structure, in true Virgo fashion. In February we had a Mercury retrograde in Aquarius that required us to keep ourselves grounded in reality by connecting to nature, putting our phones on airplane mode, and disengaging with anyone or anything that caused us to lose touch with a sense of presentness. In January we were asked to get clear about our goals and the intention that we plan to carry with us throughout the year.
So what lies ahead? Read on to see what’s in store for your sign—or your rising sign, which you can calculate here—in 2022 with your May tarotscopes.
