The Strength Tarot Card represented on the Astrology Answers Master Tarot Deck.

Settling deeper into the summer sun, we’ll be treading into this August, with Fiery Leo season kicking us off as always. Fun, passionate, and full of surprises, this month is never one you never want to miss seizing fully.

Leo is a sign full of warmth, dramatics, and creativity, and Leo season can ring in many of these themes for us all.

Then, with Virgo season picking up on August 22nd, we’ll be able to experience a more grounded, practical, and responsible energy, where we perhaps take our sparks of Leo season and channel them into concrete plans of action.

That’s not even all, either! August is packed with a bunch of beautiful and important astrological events, so be sure to take a peek at our astrological calendar to make sure you’re up to date.

Still, it can all be overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start. Thankfully, we have the Tarot to show us some overarching insight into each of the zodiac signs.

With one card each from the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana, we’ll be unpacking all the details you need to know as you plan for another exciting month.

Your August 2021 Tarotscope

Aries

The Devil (Reversed) & 4 of Wands

This month, Aries are leaving behind the old and forging the new.

The Devil is no fun sight to see, which is why it’s a lovely thing to see it sitting upside-down for you. Representing baggage, old habits, and any lingering dirty laundry from the past, its reversal indicates that Aries is likely to be ensuring that the slate is clean.

And what for?

With the 4 of Wands, you have your sights set on creating meaningful, exciting, and long-lasting foundations for yourself, especially when it comes to love and your interpersonal connections.

All in all, August is about you clearing out what no longer belongs and creating the path for something stronger.

Taurus

The Magician (Reversed) & 5 of Wands (Reversed)

Feeling a bit low energy, Taurus?

The Magician is a card of creation, manifestation, and perhaps forging new paths and opportunities. With the reversal, you may not be feeling quite up to the task this month, no matter how hard you try.

Additionally, the 5 of Wands reversed indicates that you may have some conflicts and difficulties that you’re just finishing up with, which explains why you may be feeling a bit fatigued.

It’s okay to feel a bit more on the tired side, Taurus! Make sure to grant yourself the rest you need this month.

Gemini

Wheel of Fortune & Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)

Life always gets a little more interesting with the Wheel of Fortune on the table.

This card always demands quite a bit of faith. The Wheel calls in luck and fortune and opportunity for you, Gemini, but you have to be willing to go with the flow. Sometimes this means you’ll miss opportunities or goals that you thought you wanted but will be ultimately redirected to something better.

That may be why you have Queen of Pentacles in reversed position in your cards as well. Although her grounded and structured nature is ideal for many situations, it doesn’t appear to be a match for your month ahead.

Remember to have faith not just in the Universe but, most of all, in yourself.

Cancer

The Hanged Man (Reversed) & Page of Wands

There’s something a little exciting and spontaneous in the air for crab friends this August.

The Page of Wands heralds enthusiasm, passion, and a wide embrace of learning new things. Some Cancerian friends may even find themselves stumbling into exciting news or jumping onto new opportunities.

The catch?

There really isn’t a big one, so long as you don’t get too deep in your own head. The Hanged Man reversed encourages you to let go of any urge to self-investigate too deeply and let yourself enjoy just doing and experiencing the moments for what they are for now.

With the right open-minded spirit, you have a lovely August ahead of you, Cancer.

Leo

The Empress (Reversed) & Queen of Wands

Your energy is all fire as we head into August, Leo — and as you should, as it’s starting with your season, after all!

The Queen of Wands brings some of your best qualities to the forefront this month. August is a time where you may be feeling more independent, creative, and leadership-ready than ever.

And it absolutely means you’ll be able to snag a spotlight or two if you’re looking for it.

The only thing you’ll want to make a note of is that, with The Empress reversed, the results of your work are unlikely to be automatic. You’ll need to remember the importance of patience and let this time be more about process versus results.

Virgo

The Emperor (Reversed) & King of Cups (Reversed)

Pause — it’s time for Virgos to regroup!

The Emperor and the King of Cups are both strong leadership figures in their own right. The Emperor leads boldly and confidently, and the King of Cups maintains a strong emotional intelligence and intuitive leadership style.

Now, it’s no secret that Virgos tend to pull a lot of strings very naturally. You have a knack for being the orchestrator for many grand plans and teams that need your guidance. With both of these cards reversed, however, it may be time to pull back.

This month, you can orchestrate for yourself instead of others. What might you accomplish by granting yourself the same help you so easily give to everyone else?

Libra

The Star (Reversed) & Ace of Pentacles (Reversed)

You may be itching for something new, Libra, but it isn’t quite ready for you.

With both The Star and the Ace of Pentacles — cards of incredible opportunities and new beginnings — you may have the sense that something so very sweet is around the corner for you. The Star indicates something spiritually aligned and mystical, and the Ace of Pentacles brings forth tangible opportunities and abundance.

And yet, here they are both reversed. Don’t panic because it doesn’t actually mean that your opportunities are running away from you! For now, they’re just out of reach.

Rather than fighting the divine timing of the Universe, it’s best to remain patient and remember that what is yours will always naturally find you.

Scorpio

Judgement (Reversed) & 2 of Cups

Hard work truly does pay off, Scorpio.

Last month was full of intense internal battles and difficult trials and tribulations. Still, Judgement reversed indicates that your time of self-reflection and difficult decision-making is over (for now). Kudos to you on getting the job done!

Now, with the 2 of Cups, you finally are able to open up and enjoy yourself a bit more with those around you. August is not the time to close your doors, Scorpio, as there is an abundance of opportunities waiting for you in the world of love and interpersonal connections.

Have fun, let yourself relax, and ease into the more lighthearted energy of August.

Sagittarius

The World (Reversed) & 6 of Swords

For what may feel like the ten-thousandth time this year, Sagittarius is on the move.

The World reversed indicates that something has not quite yet come full circle. As a card of completion, fulfillment, and marking the overall end of the Major Arcana, its reversal is a sign that you may have unfinished business to deal with, wild archer.

The 6 of Swords demonstrates your willingness to walk away from situations that are no longer serving you. Still, it’s important that you’re not simply running away from a difficult situation and actually can find closure as well.

Say goodbye to what no longer fits, but make sure to close the door on your way out, too.

Capricorn

The High Priestess & 3 of Cups (Reversed)

It’s time for some “me time” this month, Cap, … but not always in the way you might think.

The 3 of Cups reversed points out fun social interactions and lighthearted banter, but its reversal seems to say that you’re not so interested. Rather, you may be spending more time with your own company this August, which is A-okay.

However, it doesn’t seem to be all sunshine, rainbows, and standard self-care shenanigans. The High Priestess is on the table for you with her spiritual, intuitive, and deeply wise energy, and August may be a time of profound reflection and inner processing.

Trust the pull you receive to go within this month, wise goat.

Aquarius

The Tower (Reversed) & 10 of Swords (Reversed)

You’re ready to put it all behind you, Aquarius.

What, you may ask?

Well, The Tower and the 10 of Swords aren’t easy experiences, both coming with their own weight and difficulty. Recently, you may have wrestled with tough endings, massive changes, and a whirlwind of obstacles in your way.

Thankfully, their reversals indicate that the tougher times are finally over. You’re almost able to finally move forward from the rough. Just remember that things take time to heal, and it’s not exactly time to jump right into the next biggest thing.

August is a time that allows you to process what you just went through and finally say goodbye.

Pisces

Strength & 9 of Cups

Big rewards are on the way, Pisces, and you deserve it!

The 9 of Cups is also called the “wish card.” It’s whimsical, magical, and can often foretell that some of your wildest dreams and expectations are actually on their way to being fulfilled. August is a profound time to see any of your goals and desires through.

However, it’s clear that it’s not just all for no reason.

Strength shows us that you’ve been putting in the work for what you want, and it hasn’t always been a straightforward battle, sometimes engaging your spiritual, emotional, and physical strength all at once.

Remember that you have what it takes to go after those big aspirations of yours, intuitive fishy friends. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow awaits.

Tarot Can Help with Your Mid-Year Anxieties

With over half of the year already over, it may feel like the clock is ticking. Maybe you’re looking at your calendar and new year’s resolutions and finding some… discrepancies.

August may feel like a turning point for some, and you may be overwhelmed with some of these anxieties.

On the flip side, it’s truly a month full of opportunity, with both spunky, creative Leo season and practical, meticulous Virgo season assisting us with whatever those goals might need right now.

Using your Tarotscope is just one piece of the overarching puzzle—Tarot, astrology, or other divination tools–that can help you anticipate any difficulties lying ahead and create the roadmap you’re looking for.
