August 30 – September 5, 2018: The Magician

The Magician is number one in the tarot deck; the card of new beginnings and opportunities. The Magician easily manifests what he wants in this world.  He says, “abracadabra,” a phrase with Hebrew origins that means, “I will create as I speak.” He has all four suits of the tarot deck at his altar: wands, cups, swords and pentacles are at the ready.

This card is associated with Mercury, a planet that has some interesting things happening this week. On September 3rd Mercury is in Leo, at a significant angle to Venus in Libra. There will balance and harmony in relationships with others. You should take great care with your words. You are well equipped to promote your ideas clearly, and with style.

On the 5th, Mercury enters Virgo, which will improve your critical thinking skills and help you multitask, handling tedious details with ease. Like the Magician, you have all of the tools you need to accomplish your goals right at your fingertips. Set ambitious goals, and with the best of intentions, get to work!

August 1-8, 2018: Page of Pentacles

In this card, we see a young man intently admiring the pentacle in his hand. He has everything going for him. His fields are planted for the season, and the harvest is sure to come. Yet, he walks as though there is nothing else around him. Intently gazing at the coin in his hand, the path clears before him. This card is about manifesting your own destiny.

On August 6th, lovely Venus enters balanced Libra and romance is in the air. This is a light and breezy kind of love. Teams will be more cooperative and relationships will flourish. Then on the 7th, Uranus goes into retrograde motion opening you up for higher self awareness.

Be like the Page. He is a romantic; building relationships with the utmost admiration and care.  He makes others feel like they have his complete attention. Because of this personality trait, he achieves success and wealth in his work. This week, you will give yourself over to inner change and growth in response to the changes happening around you. As a result,  you will open the door to a new financial opportunity or a new friendship.
