Mystical messages and spiritual guidance from the wisdom of the Intellectual and Intuitive Tarot ~based on what I sense without sugarcoatin' my interpretations into a 'fantasy fairy tale', (because life isn't always pretty. As a problem-solver, I look for solutions, while including the good, the bad, and the ugly. To deepen the meaning, include your rising sign. If you were born in the evening, you may feel more comfortable reading your Moon sign.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Nine of Wands Reversed: September could be just the month that you have been waiting for Libra, to put a past situation that you have been struggling with, finally to rest. You've been wrestling with yourself about some of the past choices that you have made to protect yourself and belongings, while trying to do right by others. You will be confronted head-on from various areas in your life, where you have avoided or delayed taking action to settle things once and for all to find peace. While these disruptions may appear to create more hurdles in your life - they should actually help you to make serious choices instead, to find closure. Doubt or resistance could seep into your kind heart, as you make life-changing choices now, knowing that you will need to make genuine sacrifices to move forward. A strong sense of ego could rise, and this could stop you from making the necessary adjustments that you need to advance. Without going with the flow of this Universal shift, you could feel that more is being added to your plate now, but in reality, it's all happening to assist you in your constant indecision. While integrity has always looked good on you Libra, you will need to rely on your high standards and morals to make these important choices now. You may be a little more cautious, as if you need to protect yourself or your 'things' from others - but the struggle is not with the outside world, but within yourself. You don't have to have your guard up anymore, as everyone has moved on, and it is time for you to also move on. You only need to figure out and prioritize what is necessary as you sail on toward to new seas. Possible changes are developing in your work and money situation. Shades of forest green added into your life help attract your natural needs. Let go of the personal burdens during the next four weeks, clean out your home closets, your office drawers, and anything else that might have accumulated excess - so that you can welcome the 'new' into your life!

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Ten of Pentacles: Your relationship with others seems to be the main agenda for you in September Scorpio - and this could keep your plenty busy over the next thirty days. From your significant other, family members, close friends, and co-workers, you could find your time just really being overloaded in fulfilling everyone else's needs, as there seems to be a constant request for attention or advice from those surrounding you. Although this constant flow of love is coming in and out of your life, you really don't seem to mind, mostly because this activity will weigh down on some of your worries and doubts, while helping you to feel closer and needed by those you care about. Someone close to you reveals words of wisdom or an old family secret to you. Family parties, picnics, and get-together's are highlighted in September, bringing you personal security, with intimate conversation of family inheritances, ancestry gifts, and passed on traditions. Adjustments in housing or property may need to be concentrated on. It's all an extension of wealth being created, from old to new. Information of gain may also include a new addition to family, to gaining in-laws, in order to add onto your family tree. An end of a cycle, an end of an era, with a new cycle in the works Scorpio. Communications of all sorts this month, from busy phone calls to emails will be sharing news of your many blessings this month!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Four of Pentacles: Doors are open for you Sagittarius, but you may be too protective of the world you have created to even notice! But this September, you will really start to feel a magical change, as new people and new opportunities dance in your new life. Your slate is clean, and you will find that you are wiser and stronger, and ready for this change. You've created a stable and secure place for you and your higher self, and you're not letting anyone disrupt what you have worked so hard for. Your family, your home, and belongings are incredibly special to you (which is a big shift for freedom-loving Sagittarius). Where life had once treated you unkindly in the past, you have made amends and best friends with life once again! You will probably take steps his month to nurture these domestic feelings, with attempts to do more for your family and yourself, and possibly do some sort of remodeling or redecorating in your home. You are overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for what you have, but you may need to loosen your grip a bit, so that you can catch cosmic blessings that will be falling into your life! Neutral colors, along with shades of olive and chestnut flatter your inner light that is shining brightly. If you have a creative hobby or a home business, continue to work steadily and expect your profits to increase this month, to stabilize your foundation of living.

Material favors manifest from different areas, with some being found inside your shrine.. so clean out the attic, have a garage sale, or sell items in the classifieds. Let go of what you have left, to make room for coming rewards!

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Eight Of Wands: September will be filled with many activities and changes for you. What you have spent a lot of time contemplating; from updates in your home, changes in your work, shifts in your relationships - will all seem to have you scattered in all sorts of directions Capricorn, like fireworks displayed in the sky - with a little bit of you here, there, and everywhere! This might be the busiest month of the year for you, and you begin to release patterns, and experiment with new and exciting things. Normally this kind of speed can be nerve-wracking for you, as you like to think things over. Travel is highlighted, and it doesn't matter if it's long distance or locally, as it brings a new sense of freedom and optimism into your day. Your thoughts, your emotions, and your timing are all in-sync with the Universe, and whatever you touch - just may turn into gold! This busyness of the next few weeks is good for your soul, as it gives you a change of pace, a new perspective on life, and redirects your future with a new purpose! Connections with friends, romance, and family change in a BIG way as you relate more with your inner needs, realizing that money doesn't really buy you the happiness that you thought it would. Absorbed in your own energy now - you find yourself quite active in weeding out unnecessary parts of your life that haven't been a benefit for you in a long time. Yes, expect to be busy, busy, busy AND busy.?

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Ten of Wands: It will be a good time to put that very intelligent mind of yours into gear now Aquarius, as September will display several signs of stagnation in your life, that causes you to feel limited with serious creative blocks and no time for others. You find yourself inconspicuously challenged, as you begin to figure out what you have avoided to face, including unfinished duties (both personal and professional) that have been a setback for you all this time. You 'wake up' to your life, and realize that there are many areas that must be fixed. Once you get into this mental focus of what needs to be concentrated on and tackled - nothing (and no one) will be able to distract your will, or sway your vision. Your mind is very aroused this month and you have plenty of energy and brilliant ideas to back you up - if you reach deep down inside of yourself. The only downfall that you may need to be aware this month, is that 'all work, and no play' will put a shadow overtop of your friends, family, and love interest - so you may need to reorganize your schedule in order to balance all that you want to take care of now. Unfortunately, Aquarians can sometimes be too focused on one specific area in your life, and if anyone tends to bother you with trivial conversation and interrupt your thought-processing, you become quickly annoyed and testy. Be sure to use your positive influences to communicate to others what you need right now in your life, with gentle words and kindness. With the right approach, you could be feeling more alive than ever - enriched with love, joy, and happiness!

PISCES (February 19-March 20) The Magician: Congratulations Pisces, it seems that in September if you haven't already learned this very powerful lesson about self-esteem, you will be sure to learn what you are capable of this month! You have experienced within the past few months (or perhaps past few years) what some may call a stroke of 'awry' luck - leaving you unsure if you have been on a path of fortune or failure, as certain areas of your life have been bittersweet, as parts of it crumbled. As much as you may not have wanted to deal with the changes, the adjustments, and the responsibilities (as many Pisces don't), you have truly being taught about how to pick up the pieces, and how to move on, all on your own two feet. The moral of this story is that through several broken areas in your life, you were being taught on how to rely on yourself and how to take charge of your own life, and not depend on others to do the work for you. You have a chance to rise from the many lows that you have experiences, to help you find your own strength and confidence - to be your own reliable self. Anything that you want to accomplish is within your grasp now, by simply reaching within, and using the tools that sit before you. Always remember the hard lessons learned, the sacrifices that were made to teach you to be self-sufficient, and be grateful for what you got from the experience. Like grapes matured for the fine wine that you are famous for... you're going for a ride for bigger and better things in coming weeks! Add canary-yellow into your life for clarity, and be ready to create some magic!

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Four of Wands Reversed: It will be important for you to step out from the lime-light Aries to take some personal time to regroup your thoughts and emotions for September. You have noticed this aura of change in the air, as this shift could be causing an erosion of the protective shell that you have once built for yourself. Changes may occur within your home or living arrangements, a movement in your place of work or school, or a shift within your personal self. This shell has been your covering, your shield from the outside world, and you're going to be making serious choices regarding who you're going to allow into your 'space' and what you need to renovate in your life to find continued happiness. This fluctuation could cause you some nervousness, as others will be able to see more of what's going on in your life, or perhaps they'll actually get to see the 'real' you. And as courageous as others may think you are, deep down you have your own shadows to deal with. This could make you quite nervous and cause you to experience some headaches. During this 'coming out' stage, you may be unsure of some of the people that you have been turning to, whole having doubts in some of the choices that you have made. There could be some minor disruptions in your home, school, or place of work if you continue to carry this sense of uneasiness - where it could be beneficial to find quality time with yourself - so that your thoughts and goals are not influenced by those around you. One thing that is very important for an Aries, is that you make genuine decisions that are not only for yourself, but also for your tribe - because Aries must feel proud and have a need to hold their head up high. Colors of rust and orange bring out a courageous side of your personality to help you gain control. It's a good time to chill with the season, and use guided mediation (if Aries can sit still for a few minutes!) to reconnect with your higher self, to ground with your natural strength, while allowing the Universe to beam its' light upon you. You will be glad that you did in weeks to come.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The Fool Reversed: An open door becomes available to you this month Taurus, offering you a chance to try a different path than what you have been recently following. You've been thinking about doing something a little more spontaneous, and starting fresh - and the law of the Universe has delivered what you have been thinking about! This quick jump in life can lean toward new social gatherings, new romantic interests, as well as new career changes. You may be seriously considering to take up some new classes to prepare yourself for this particular mood that you are in - or you may decide to just settle with a few courses to spruce up your resume! Either way, there is a personal desire to enhance your skills and knowledge. The only thing that you will need to do is go with the flow, and be ready for the calling - and sometimes Taurus can be much too conservative and lack spontaneity. While the need exists and grows, there is also a fear of you pulling away from your daily routine. You take life quite seriously and you may need to add shades of blue to your wardrobe to create calmness during this transition. You'll probably spend more time reviewing this idea of change, and researching it, wondering if it's really your best course of action. Doing this, you sidetrack and spend less time taking the actual steps to grow and move forward. Lucky chances are not set in stone, and don't last forever - so do your homework (because it is who you are) and take a chance to see what life is holding for you!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) King of Wands Reversed: New days are ahead for you Gemini, and it is important for you to breathe in fresh air... and to exhale and release toxicity. You could prevent yourself from accomplishing your goals, if you keep allowing issues and individuals from your past to interfere with your happiness. It's like you're taking a walk, and rather than enjoying what's in-front of you, you keep feeling a need to look back. Possibly someone may be trying to keep you from moving forward, as they fear being left behind. If this is true of the latter, then you may need to step back from the situation, and REALLY listen to what is influencing this situation. You may continue to think that you can 'fix' the problem, but it is not your job. By releasing this heroic desire, you will be able to turn around, face your future, and find brighter days that wait for you! Changes in your work situation may be waiting for attention, as you feel this desire to gain more control. Be more creative now, try something a bit more different that what you are use to. Otherwise, you could strain yourself (possibly with others) to find success in your endeavors Gemini. Add shades of brick red into your fashion to ignite passion to keep you moving and looking forward. Your charming charisma and your ability to adapt and change with all that is around you - seems to be in the cards that you're holding to play your game! Good luck!

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Emperor Reversed: September will be testing you and your assertiveness Cancer. Someone in your circle may unknowingly be rubbing you in the wrong direction during the next few weeks, and you may feel very tempted to confront this individual to clear the air. If you approach this matter in an aggressive manner, unkind words may most likely be exchanged, leading to negative feelings. You may feel you have something to prove to defend your honor or loyalty, but you may be too sensitive to approach the problem right now. It may be necessary to exhaust some of this raw energy that you are experiencing, with journaling or an exercise program. You desire to charge in and take control of this matter but aggressive behavior always leads to aggressive responses. Pull yourself to the side and keep your distance, because those who know what you truly stand for - are the only friends who should truly matter. You will be connecting with some of your stronger friendships instead, while spending time with family members to ground with your roots. Keep yourself occupied, or frustration could add nervousness or nauseousness to that sensitive belly of yours. This month is very positive for recommitting to your self and your own morals, while developing a new creative interest or hobby, which in-return would put you back out there to meet new friends for support with changes that you are making in the coming weeks!

LEO (July 23-August 22) Ace of Wands Reversed: A new beginning is being propositioned to you this month, and there is a possibility that you could get in your own way and sabotage your chance for a life-changing experience. While this adventure could be just what you've been looking for to add some excitement and freshness into your world, a fear tends to scratch at the surface, as you consider straying from familiar territory, into the unknown. This is a calling from the Universe and a blessing in disguise, to improve your uncertain circumstances. There's a good chance that one area in your life may flop, in order for you to notice what is being introduced to you! (Leo's don't always notice what is going on around them, unless a red carpet is displayed before them, with their name written in gold to grab their attention!) This ongoing situation that you have been dealing with has been creating a challenge or insecurity within yourself - while creating doubt in that pretty Leo mane of yours. Something that you have been unhappy with, which has not been working out in your favor - no matter how much you have attempted to 'fix' it, will gently be nudged to the side, as a brand new 'break in life' is introduced - as a reminder that you do indeed have options to choose from. Be bold and reach for this Leo, as a chance for happiness is waiting tol bloom!

It's not about what cards you are dealt in life, but how you play them!
