A quick primer on how to read a tarotscope: read for your sun and rising signs. If you know your business' sun sign, read for that, too! You can get free and accurate birth charts at Astro.com.
8 of Wands
Wands is your wheelhouse. That little burst of energy you felt flare up? That was the Moon going into Aries at the end of June, lighting a fire under your emotions: sending up the shit you need to deal with.
The 8 of Wands is all about fast and sure movement. Now is the time to kick something off - all that thinking you were doing with last month's High Priestess energy? @@Time to put feet under those plans.@@ PLUS Mars (tie ruling planet) just went direct. Now is the time to light fires under your creative projects: to get stared and to pick up anything that stalled during Mars Rx.
Use the New Moon in Cancer on the 4th to do some emotional self-care; going at the speed of the 8 of Wands can be exhausting. Remember, 8 of Wand moments aren't a marathon - they're a sprint. Be sure to care for yourself accordingly and take time to rest.

The Hanged Man
From The Chariot to The Hanged Man. You may be looking at all that fired up energy you had last month, and thinking about how Mars (the planet of action) just went direct... and you. are. not. feeling it.
There are many ways for you to get a boost from powerful Mars, and it doesn't all look like moving a plan forward with external, visible steps. Sometimes, the energy a plan needs to absorb is surrender. Slow down. Taking it back to step one and really thinking it through. Processing. This may also be a time when that project you started with June's Chariot energy may be involving someone else -- and ain't it the worst when we have to slow down, surrender, and wait for other people?
You're probably fighting this, Taurus. But take heart. Practice some heart-opening poses in your yoga practice. Do a ritual on July 4, when we have a New Moon in Cancer. @@Nurture the quiet direction taking shape.@@

And what a time for the Empress to show up. The height of summer is approaching, and though the temptation may be to lay on a beach somewhere and soak up the sun, Mars just went direct.
It's time to see where The Empress is working in your life: is she going to help you plant strong, hardy seeds for a later harvest? Are you returning to a longstanding project that is in need of revitalization? Are you ready to reap what you've sown -- but need the confidence to do so?
@@The Empress has got your back.@@
Also. also. also. A quick note on timing: the Sun is currently in Cancer, lifting all of our nurturing spirits (and homebody tendencies!). This weekend, on Sunday July 3, the Cancer Sun hangs out with Pisces Neptune, creating a dreamy, love fest -- that is, incidentally exactly the kind of fallow ground The Empress likes to work with. The Empress excels at making our dreams a reality. If you can reap the weekend's happy, esoteric energy, you'll be unstoppable.

10 of Swords
Oh, Cancer. We are in your season (at home -- finally!) but the cards say that it's not a time of pure comfort, necessarily. Right now, you're dealing with some major upheaval, and after the last few months you've had (The Tower in May, the 4 of Pentacles in June), you might just want to lay down and burrow in your bed all month. Rather like a crab.
Not so, friend. The 10 of Swords is where the rubber meets the road. It's where you decide to lay down and become one with the pavement -- or to get back up and begin anew. This is your "get back up" season. And the fact that we are in your home sign of Cancer makes it safer. Not easier -- but more comfortable to get up and brush your knees off.
Also? @@Be kind to yourself this month.@@ Make it a point to do some self-care and also some purely fun goofing off. You need to remember what it is you enjoy in life, and what it is you enjoy in business. No strings attached.

Strength in May, the 3 of Wands in June, and now The Chariot. You have a busy-ass year, Leo! You are go-go-go, and The Chariot is the cherry on top. But then, Mars just went direct. Your fire energy is ready to go.
The Chariot represents a time when we move through a sheer force of will. Unsurprisingly, Strength -- endurance, patience, compassion -- is a lesson you've been learning this year.
The risk of The Chariot is blurring the line between endurance and unhealthy grinding in your work. However, the Sun moves into your home sign later this month -- and since your sign is ruled by the Sun, that energy is amplified ten-fold. Use the fire to guide your path, to light your way, to harness The Chariot's energy productively. (Venus and Mercury also move into Leo later this month, amplifying your capacity for self-care and compassion.) @@Work smart, not hard: this is your mantra this month.@@

Page of Pentacles
You are having a Pentacles summer (in June, the 7 of Pentacles; for July, the Page). But this is good news for you, Virgo: you are happily at home with the earthy, material energy the Pentacles suit exhorts us to create in our everyday lives. @@What are your favorite methods to really ground yourself, to bring your body and soul together into alignment?@@ Those could really help your business this month.
The Page of Pentacles dovetails nicely with the New Moon in Cancer on July 4th. The Page is all about what's new: being at the start of a journey, not quite having matured into an attitude (or a lifestyle, or a blog) yet -- but being determined to do so. The New Moon in Cancer reminds you to have the compassion and emotional patience with yourself along the journey.
In the Shadowscapes deck, the Page of Pentacles is watching over a just-springing garden: this is you. What are you watching over in your life? What needs amplified emotional care? (Again: see the New Moon in Cancer!) Where can you focus on nurturing relationships, friendships, your business - most especially: your relationship with yourself. The hint is the suit: the method of nurturing should be grounded in practical Pentacles.

The Wheel of Fortune
In May, the 4 of Swords. Last month, the 10 of Wands. This month, the Wheel of Fortune. You've felt burdened and slow these last few months (unsurprising, given all the retrogrades over the spring) -- but now, things are going to pick up. @@The energy is gonna flow. Shit's gonna get done.@@
Where will The Wheel take you, though? That's the question. The Wheel can indicate the randomness of life -- the beauty of luck and the cruelty of chance. (This is a concept you have difficulty with, given your commitment to balancing the scales, to cause and effect, to justice.)
However, The Wheel can also indicate cycles. Astrologically, Mars has just gone direct and both Venus and Mercury are moving into Leo, which indicates two things. First, you're gonna have a fire lit under your ass by Mars going direct -- use that energy to direct the Wheel! Second, Mercury and Venus being in Leo will infuse your communication and relationships with Leo's grounded, fixed-fire passion and renewed commitment to finding the best and the beautiful. You've got this!
Work with The Wheel, not against it. Plan your content with a Content Calendar oracle reading.
Last month, The Sun: joy, clarity, purpose. This month, The Tower: tearing shit down.
How did this happen? The Sun shone a light on what to tear down. On what was working, and what wasn't. Now that Mars (your ruling planet) is direct, you are taking the steps to change, to improve, to completely raze what isn't working. Enter The Tower.
@@Mars takes action. Has sex. Burns like a wildfire. Goes after what it wants wholeheartedly.@@ This is how you should approach The Tower. And if you aren't feeling The Tower yet, take a few minutes to journal some thoughts about where you've been feeling less-than-stellar in life lately. Those are the areas to work on changing.
(And take heart, Scorpio! The New Moon in Cancer on the 4th and Venus going into Leo on the 12th, your capacity for emotional growth in this Tower moment will be strong.)

9 of Pentacles
Hey hey, girlboss. What's up? You've come out of The Tower and into a 9 of Pentacles season. The tl;dr version? Your month is lit.
To elaborate: the 9 of Pentacles is the ultimate girlboss card. Almost always represented by a woman or feminine-presenting person, the 9 of Pentacles indicates the independence that comes with the earthly maturity of a rock-solid foundation. The 9 of Pentacles isn't the person who just started their business -- nope. The 9 of Pentacles has been working their ass off and is finally in a time when things are falling into place. If that's you, congratulations. And if you did just start, things are about to get real serious real fast.
@@The 9 of Pentacles is a card of earthly abundance.@@ It is a time to reap rewards. And this works in your favor this month, Sag! The New Moon in Cancer on the 4th sweeps you off your feet and sets you up for tremendous, spiritually grounded success. Life-changing self-care? A renewed capacity for emotional openness and vulnerability in your relationships? Yup. Do a ritual (even looking at the moon!) and be sure to tap into the super positive vibes swimming in the air.

King of Pentacles
O hai there, Cap. You've been figuring your shit out lately -- in May, Judgment and in June, Justice -- but now, you are ready to roll. You are ready to execute and get this show on the road: enter the King of Pentacles.
@@The King of Pentacles is all about that abundant life.@@ And ICYMI, Capricorn, Mars just went direct. If you can channel the renewed Mars energy, you will be unstoppable. The King of Pentacles shows that you've got empire-building on the mind: don't let the free-flowing summer mindset shift your laser focus from your work.
However. However. The King of Pentacles always remembers their community. They aren't doing work in a vacuum, or a silo; the King brings the people together for the greatest good. And the energy this month encourages that. The New Moon in Cancer on the 4th is a perfect time to do a spiritual, emotional ritual around new beginnings and establishing healthy new patterns. If you pay attention to your emotional self when empire-building, you won't just be unstoppable: you'll be a force of nature.

Page of Wands
inspiration has struck. You've been on a journey, Aquarius: weighing your options with the Two of Wands in May, having an internal battle with which to choose (and maybe impulsively going back and forth!) with the Knight of Swords in June. And now: the Page of Wands.
You've settled on a choice. You've decided. (And Mars just went direct! Perfect timing, friend.)
This is an exciting time for new creative projects, Aquarius. You are no stranger to the new and the exciting - you're used to being an "early adopter" of everything. However. Your inclination is toward the rational, the intellectual, the social good factor, and this month, those will be taking a back seat. @@The Page of Wands is asking you to trust your gut.@@ To trust the emotions you may be feeling, but which you don't understand. To put your feet under dreams that you may not have an intellectual justification for.
Good news on the emotional front: there is a New Moon in Cancer on July 4th, an optimal time to do a self-care or wellness ritual. Remember, things can just feel good and seem right. Don't check your brain at the door, but don't limit your intuition, either.

8 of Pentacles
You've been undergoing a deep emotional transformation through retrograde season with the 3 and 6 of Cups. However, Mars is now direct. The 8 of Pentacles has entered the picture. It's time to put what you've learned into practice.
@@The 8 of Pentacles offers a structure to the emotional and spiritual work you've been doing over the last few months.@@ The 8 of Pentacles is the perpetual student, the hard worker, someone who applies themselves daily to the pursuit of growth.
What do your daily rituals look like? Have you been meaning to journal, or blog, or meditate, or do yoga, but haven't? Now is the time to institute those practices, Pisces.
The work is everything. The realizations and transformations you've been having will fall away without a firm foundation. Now is the time to get real with yourself about what needs to happen in order to go where you see yourself going. Take the New Moon in Cancer on the 4th as an opportunity to do some dream visioning. Then take those notes or doodles and open your planner.
