Your July 2020 Tarotscopes
You may have read your horoscope for July 2020, but the cards are here to lend their insight as well in your July Tarotscope!
As we kick off July, we will begin with Cardinal Cancer leading the way, and will experience its effects for the majority of the month. Soft, nurturing, and family-oriented Cancerian energy is what we may all be needing right now, but it’s no surprise that this energy can manifest very differently for everyone.
Feel free to use your Tarotscope to help you prepare for the road ahead, quell your curiosities or anxieties, or perhaps even confirm what you may have been anticipating for this month.
Your July 2020 Tarotscopes
The Magician (Reversed) & King of Wands (Reversed)
Let’s not kid ourselves — the vibe of a slow and soft Cancer season is not for everyone, and this time it may not sit right with a more fiery personality such as yourself, Aries. Last month the Tarot encouraged you to take things slow, and this month you may find yourself at a full-blown stop.
The lack of momentum in your goals and aspirations may be initially frustrating, but the King of Wands in a reversed position warns against losing your cool.
At the end of the day, reversed Tarot cards can be turned around into their upright position if you give them some time and patience.
The creative flow, leadership roles, and faster pace that you seek is coming for you on its own time — just don’t scare it off by jumping for it too quickly!
The Hermit (Reversed) & 5 of Cups
Despite the earthy and grounded exterior, love-struck and Venus-ruled Taurus friends alike know emotional depths more than many might give you credit for. An emotional Cancer season plus this pre-existing hopeless romantic energy equals a month of getting caught up in your feelings — but don’t fret quite yet!
The biggest battle you may face this month is the one in your own head and heart. You may lament some amount of loneliness or feel misunderstood with The Hermit in reversed position. And, yes, the 5 of Cups often presents some level of loss and heartbreak or the idea that something is just missing.
These feelings are very real, but the 5 of Cups also reminds you that there are full (metaphorical) cups waiting for you when you’re ready to focus on them. As much as there can be loss this July for you, Taurus, there can be love.
The Chariot & 9 of Cups (Reversed)
Success is imminent this month for you, Gemini — or is it?
The Chariot certainly foretells some amount of recognition and return. And in June, we definitely saw you put in that work necessary in order to achieve it. In particular, The Chariot emphasizes others that may recognize your efforts, or attempt to pat you on the back for the work well done.
There may very well be opportunities presented to you alongside this public recognition. However, the 9 of Cups in reversed position only warns you to be wary of the opportunities that wear a thin veil of dishonesty.
Not everything is always as it seems, as not all opportunities are going to be equal in their output.
Keep your keen eye on the prize and don’t lose sight of what your end game goals are, and you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor in full force.
The Tower & 10 of Pentacles (Reversed)
As much as you will find yourself in your home turf of Cancer season this month, Cancerian friends, the cards at hand present you with quite the challenge.
The Tower, a card of change and transformation, may indicate that you find yourself at the mercy of greater twists, turns, and familiar systems falling to ash. And with the 10 of Pentacles in reversed position, the resources you may be used to relying on may not be at your disposal this month, or they perhaps won’t lend the right kind of support that you will need.
The Tower is ultimately a blessing in many ways, as it clears the path for something bigger and better in the process. However, that doesn’t make it any more fun in the midst of things!
In order to grapple with these changes, expect the unexpected, and prepare to adapt quickly and in new ways to the change in pace.
Strength & Knight of Wands (Reversed)
Looking good, Leo! Strength is your card, and part of July will be in your very own Leo season — what more could you ask for?
This month, it looks like you may be turning a lot of your efforts, as well as your fiery energy, inwards. In June, we notably witnessed you and your lion friends alike working hard to no end, truly putting your all into your work and putting your best foot forward.
With the Knight of Wands in reversed position, as well as with the grace of Strength on your side, you might start to feel like it is soon time to let yourself kick back and have a little fun — and that time is July!
Enjoy the “off time” that you’re being given, and fall freely into the beautiful energy of simply having a good time.
The Lovers & Page of Cups (Reversed)
With Mercury as your planetary ruler, communication is something that is always on your plate, Virgo — but prepare for this at a maximum this month!
The Lovers calls into question our connections with others, and truly puts them to the test. As fun and light as the energy can be at times, it also can bring some miscommunications and disagreements, so prepare to see all ends of the spectrum with how those around you are handling their relationship with you.
Believe people when they show you who they are this month, and with Page of Cups in reversed position at play, don’t be afraid to retreat sometimes to let yourself re-calibrate and recharge emotionally when needed.

Death & 5 of Wands (Reversed)
Just when you think you’ve found your footing, the Tarot throws Death your way — the ultimate sign of change, transformation, and a shakedown of everything you thought you knew.
The 5 of Wands in reversed position shows us where exactly we can expect these changes. In particular, the changes that are coming this way for you this July, Libra, are those surrounding conflicts, interpersonal connections, and communication with those around you.
You might see this theme not just with people close to you, but even through witnessing conflict and disagreement between others, or even online.
This theme may seem to come back again and again this July and, initially, this may be frustrating or confusing, but Death is clearing out the chaos whilst showing you what kind of conflict you don’t want to circle back to ever again — so take notes!
The Emperor & Queen of Swords (Reversed)
Time to take charge, Scorpio. This July, you’re being called forth into Emperor energy with some force, and you may very suddenly and unexpectedly find yourself being the person that others are relying on and looking to for wisdom, advice, and direction.
This responsibility is yours because you’re capable of taking it on, but you have to believe it!
The Queen of Swords in reversed position warns against getting caught up in your head, and overthinking or losing confidence. Comparison is one of the worst kinds of poison for the mind, so hammer it into your head that there is no replacement for the kind of leadership that you bring to the table, show up, show out, and do what you’ve always been born to do!
The Hierophant & 4 of Wands (Reversed)
This month, you may find yourself wrestling with pre-existing systems, traditions, and ideas that have been laid down even decades before you arrived here on Earth.
This isn’t new for the rebellious, naturally curious Sagittarian spirit, but it’s possible that this July, this never-ending battle you have with The Hierophant leans into your interpersonal connections, and translates into disagreements with those that are close to you.
The 4 of Wands in reversed position puts your friendships and other close relationships at risk.
Compromise is key with this, wise archer. The phrase “pick and choose your battles wisely” rings especially true for you this July, as there are certainly more pressing matters that will require your time, energy, and effort later.
Love is in the air for you this month, Capricorn. Whether this is self-love, new romance, or all of the above, the Ace of Cups foretells a beautiful, loving, and warm energy that comfortably blankets your month of July.
With The Moon at play, mystery and a light fog over your eyes may cause some sense of confusion and uncertainty with where all of this is ultimately going, but that’s okay!
Even a strong planner such as yourself does not always need to know what the future exactly holds. Let your guard down this month, Capricorn, and watch as the universe rewards your bravery.
Boredom, tedium, and a lack of substance is just about what would create an Aquarian nightmare — so prepare to face your fears this month!
The 4 of Cups predicts some amount of boredom and dissatisfaction, and you may find yourself not enjoying hobbies or even TV, movies, food, and other activities as much as you usually do.
The challenge here is to not lean into the embrace of The Devil, that which tempts you with memories of the past, old habits and routines, and things that you have long since said goodbye to. Don’t text that ex, don’t pick up that old habit, and don’t fall back into those routines that you know hold no long-term value for you!
The boredom and temptation may be real this month, Aquarius, but so is your fighting spirit and willpower to say no.
Sweet, emotional, and sensual Pisces souls may often find some comfort in your kindred spirit’s — Cancer — season.
This month is both sweet and sour for you, Pisces, as you are likely to find yourself reminiscing and reflecting fondly upon the past. After all, the typically emotional Cancer season is something that you tend to work well with, so it’s easy for you to fall into this kind of emotional, nostalgic state.
While this reflection looks to be positive overall, the Justice card only kindly reminds you to approach these reflections with balance and as much objectivity as possible. Use the memories you visit as a learning opportunity rather than something to get totally lost in, and you’ll have a rewarding, refreshing July.
A Final Reminder
While both the Tarot and the stars will lend you the appropriate insight and spotlight onto the energies ahead and at play for you, they still do so to empower and validate you in making your own choices.
Consider your July Tarotscope as but one extra tool at your infinite disposal of others, and feel free to return to it if you feel like you need to listen again to what the cards have to say!
