Leo Tarot Card of the Month - Two of Cups
This Month, look to connect with people who matter to you on a very deep and non-superficial level. Being the fiery sign that you are, you are always at the risk of shooting off your mouth in your honest attempt to ‘tell it as it is.’ Your tarot card this August kindly nudge you to remember that it’s still your responsibility as a mindful member of society to pay attention to how much truth serum you’re administering and to whom. Many a time you will make vindictive enemies or frenemies, even though it is unknowingly.
Career: At work, should your boss or your colleague request your frank opinion, find a tactful way to share it. Don’t water down your true opinions or your creativity—just make the feedback respectful and be kind with your words.
Love: Your love life might be driven by lust, this month dear Leo, you're either wildly attracted to each other or completely repelled, and there's not much middle ground. You’ll be assertive about expressing your needs and desires but make sure you aren’t going over-board. If single, there is a word of caution: the view from your rosy lenses can be a bit myopic.
Virgo Tarot Card of the Month - 9 of Pentacles
Dear Virgo, this August make it a point to please others only when it pleases you too. See this month as an opportunity to make peace with your innate need for approval. The tarot card asks you to focus on the now, where the magic is. You might be pulled towards a lot of reflection and nostalgia, don’t give your power to the feeling of how things used to be or how things should be. You might miss out on the opportunities right in front of you.
Career: With your experience and your driven work ethic, you can build an empire. But when the pressure mounts too high, you lose sight of your grand vision and get caught up in the daily grind like a hamster on a wheel. As a result, you don’t even realize that you’re rushing headfirst towards burnout.
Love: Temper and love, make a deadly combination but when you are angered, your burning tempers can raze a national forest to ash. Be careful not to unleash a spiteful spark, for that's all it takes to destroy a peaceful partnership.
Libra Tarot Card of the Month - The Chariot
When would be the right time to live the life of your dreams? The right time to have your own start-up? If Covid19 has taught us anything, it’s that there’s no such thing as the right time.

Scorpio Tarot Card of the Month - 9 of Wands
Dear Scorpio, after the hectic pace of the past few months, there’s a low-key vibe to the start of this month for you.
