You do your best this month despite the circumstances, or inspite of them. Singles will have to choose between two and it is best to leave the decision to destiny to prevent hurt feelings on both sides. Those in new-age kind of work will do well as will the self-employed. You might be feeling run-down. Take a second opinion if unwell. Chances to make more money are coming your way. Avoid taking on more work or responsibilities.

Virgo: August 21 – September 20

Aces always represent new beginnings, though the sword indicates it is in the realm of the mind. You might want to start something new – an idea whose time has come. Singles will be surprised with a new admirer or someone you know. A marriage going through a bad patch could get worse though. There could be tense moments with family and money matters. You will become more goal-oriented and get a chance to expand your work or business.

A major arcana indicates a destiny card, so expect some fated events to occur. An ex could re-enter your life but the magic is gone. If wanting to sell a house, it will get sold. Productivity at work goes up and you can expect a raise. Move away if a relationship is getting abusive. A health issue will get resolved. Some of you will end your self-imposed isolation.

Shift where you put your energy and see problems getting resolved. Growing distance in a relationship can hurt, so keep communicating. Stress could bring back an old health problem. This is a phase that was pre-destined so lie low where possible. Change is part of your growth process so accept what comes in and what leaves.

Capricorn: December 21 – January 20

All things bright this winter for the late December and January born as the sun card promises an engagement or marriage in the family, mergers at work and new money. Despite this, you may experience mood swings and low phases. If you feel run-down or tired, take a break to heal. Avoid mixing business and friendships. Some of you may get a good offer for a business or job. Don’t let appearances sway you and wait for clarity while staying open to guidance.

Aquarius: January 21 – February 20

You draw the card for Aries, indicating a lot of activity and leadership. In a relationship, try communicating instead of shutting down; it might resolve the problem at hand. Expect to get a lot of work if you are self-employed. A trip could be on the anvil. Singles could meet someone, perhaps March-April born. Expect stress-related head and back aches. Money comes from repeat business or new contacts. Be confident and focus on your goals for best results.

Pisces: February 21 – March 20

You draw the card representing your own sign, so expect messages from the universe to be loud and clear. But the card is reversed so things might not go according to plan. Single young women may turn down a suitor due to his emotional immaturity or unavailability. Your social life will be busy this month. Finances are stable while health issues with your legs or feet could occur. If looking for a change of career, the self-help arena is where you could do well.
