Here are the Tarot-Scopes by Sun Sign for the month of September. For this feature, I am using traditional Western Sun signs of the zodiac, but if you’re curious what your Vedic Astrology Sun sign is, check out the Vedic Astrology Sun Signs page and compare. If your Vedic Sun sign is different than your traditional Western sign, you might even see how both of the energies listed below could apply to you – or perhaps one may be more prominent for you than the other.
Keep in mind that a single card pulled for a given sign will not represent everything you experience during the month. It is a significant theme of the month that you will probably see or relate to in one way or another. But it’s not the sum of the whole. It is, however, one important aspect or theme that the Tarot wants to bring to the attention of each Sun Sign.
This month, I am using the Universal Fantasy Tarot by Paolo Martinello.
ARIES: Knight of Wands
September may bring a flurry of activity your way, Aries. It can be a busy month and also a more social one for you as well. You may be taking action and pursuing new ideas. Courage is strong and fear is not in the way – so it’s perfecting timing to charge ahead for what you want to attain or achieve.
In all of your ambitions, Aries, just don’t forget to think before acting. If you act first and think later, this could create some glitches or even some hard feelings when someone misunderstands your intentions. You’ve got a lot of great enthusiasm that you can put to work in your life, but don’t let that tendency to rush into things and dive in cause consequences to later be dealt with.
You’re raring to go or get started on something, and the Knight of Wands tells you to go for it! Just be careful that haste does not make waste in your situation . . . and you’ll be just fine. Seize opportunity when it comes knocking, and enjoy what you are doing! And if something unexpected happens to comes along, you’ll have the ability and resources to handle it.
Aries Affirmation: I enjoy the journey toward my destination. I move forward fearlessly and with excitement.
No need to try to go to extremes in whatever you are doing this month, Taurus. Nothing needs to be rushed, hurried, or prodded. Take your time and be patient. For now, you are probably not in a position to make things happen anyway. Instead, you must try to be patient and wait for the right time to act.
In the meantime, Temperance is also about blending and bringing together various components of a situation – and sometimes even bringing together various elements of thought and feeling within yourself so that you can create personal balance in your mindset as well.
Cooperation and compromise may be asked of you during the month. This is actually a calm energy that allows you to take your time a little more than usual. When you are patient, you can act at the right time with precision. Patience and moderation in all things will result in good management of your life. Don’t feel that you must rush . . . just let things evolve at a natural and comfortable pace. And know that you have a guardian angel watching out for you in this Temperance energy! This angel will help you be in the right place at the right time. So there is nothing you have to go on a frenzied hunt for. What you need will come to you when the time is just right.
Taurus Affirmation: When in doubt, I will simply take the middle ground instead of going to extremes. This keeps me in the right balance with the flexibility to make adjustments either way as needed.
GEMINI: Two of Chalices
Meaningful relationships are an important theme in your life this month, Gemini. Such unions can be love relationships, job partnerships, or even coming together with good friends and/or family. In your togetherness with someone who is important to you, the two of you can become stronger than either of you would be standing on your own. It’s true that “two heads can be better than one!”
Look for the chance to do something you love . . . and if you can do something you enjoy with a person that you love or care deeply for, it’s all the better. It’s a time to focus on the love you have in your life, the love you are able to offers others, and the love you can draw upon from yourself as a source of nourishment that everyone needs.
This month, you may find that someone is constantly in your thoughts as well – perhaps a new or existing love interest . . . or just thinking about relationships in general.
Despite the focus on the two individuals shown on this card, the Two of Cups also points to what is happening within yourself. To be truly loved, deeply treasured and valued highly by others, you must first and foremost strive to create those feelings for yourself. That is, when you work toward loving yourself, you hold your inner spirit in high regard, treating it with deep respect. When you see yourself in this positive light, other people cannot help but respond to your personal sense of value in an equally positive manner.
Gemini Affirmation: I celebrate all the good things and people that life brings my way.
CANCER: Four of Chalices
Are you feeling like you didn’t quite get what you wanted, Cancer? Does it seem like the grass is greener on the other side or that everyone else has what you want, but that you aren’t getting? Maybe something is “missing” in your life, and you’re not even sure of what that missing piece might be. We’ve all had those blah, hum-drum moments where it seems that nothing can please us.
If you find yourself in a pity-party, just know that the time you spend feeling sorry for yourself is a self-absorbed time in which you might be missing opportunities around you. Perhaps you think the opportunities available to you aren’t what you want. But make sure a funky mood isn’t exaggerating your emotions.
It’s great to take time away and contemplate the things you have in life and the things you want, but you should only stay there for a little while. Don’t stay so long that you really do end up missing out on what is available to you! Let your state of discontent prompt you discover the “more” out there that you feel you’re missing. Let yourself discover what it is that you truly want. What you want might not be exactly the same as what everyone else has. It’s time to get up and explore, join with others, and be engaged again. Too much withdrawal can lead to depression. And it doesn’t have to be that way – unless you choose it.
Gemini Affirmation: I’m willing to take a second look at what might not appear to be all I wanted . . . because it might be better than I thought. And I’ll certainly not know unless I do at least look.
LEO: The Sun
Lucky Leo, the sun is shining on you this month! This is your time to say YES to life and enjoy the things that come your way. The Sun brings you enthusiasm, attainment, success . . . and fun in your adventures. This month can mark a time of happiness and celebration in your life. And no matter what physical age you are, there is plenty of youth, energy, and playfulness for you to enjoy.
New beginnings or opportunities may come your way – the kind that you are pleased with and grateful for. The overall tone is optimistic, exuberant, and creative. There is also a sense of freedom with the Sun, so if anything has caused you to feel stuck or trapped lately . . . you’re sure to find a way to set yourself free!
Leo, you have every reason to believe in yourself and your dreams with all of this bright enthusiastic energy surrounding you. Go after the things you want. Let yourself try something new or different. Feel free to think outside the box or draw outside of the lines. Get creative, and have fun. And don’t be afraid to toot your own horn and put yourself in the spotlight during a time in which you are shining so boldly. This is a wonderful energy waiting for you to claim it. The spotlight is all yours, Leo!
Leo Affirmation: I choose to have fun and to nurture the growth of my own dreams and creativity.
VIRGO: Ace of Swords
You may experience a major breakthrough in some area of your life, Virgo. You may experience a liberating situation or opportunity that enables rapid progress to be made. Swords relate to states of mind as well as situations of conflict. Conflict is not always bad — sometimes it’s necessary to clear the air and to forestall wrongdoing and negativity. Without confronting and exposing what is bad, the good influences won’t have a chance to grow and develop.
“Strength in adversity” is a hallmark of this Ace . . . out of something “bad,” something good emerges. The Ace of Swords gives you the ability to cut through all the layers of an issue and to get to the truth and heart of a matter. Understanding comes by cutting through confusion and illusion and peeling away the layers of a situation to get to the core of the truth. You begin to think and communicate differently when you understand what you need to know. This card shows the beginning of change as well as the beginning of success.
With the Ace of Swords energy, you feel a sense of power and control — possibly something that has been lacking lately for you . . . but the energy here offers a turn of events that gives back that element of control if you’re willing to grab it! Your situation may have arisen out of a more difficult one, but now you hold the cards in your hands, so to speak. Take action on a matter, even if it means that you may have to confront some unpleasantness in doing so. You are encouraged to break free of any situations or relationships in which you’re not allowed to think for yourself. Because this card teaches that you can take charge of your own thoughts, it also invites you to choose your own results. Because reality is changeable, you can decide which terms of reality you wish to operate under.
Virgo Affirmation: I look at things from a new perspective. And in doing so, I let inspiration lead me to the truth and to manifestation of my goals.
LIBRA: The Hermit
The Hermit represents the light of wisdom and inner searching from within. It represents the need or desire to turn away from the distractions of the everyday world in order to focus on the inner world. There is a strong element of solitude within this card . . . or at least the need to be alone to think your own thoughts and to escape from the daily hustle and bustle of life. Sometimes we all need to take a break away from all the “noise” in life. When you take the time to allow for some quiet solitude in your day or week, a silent whisper has its chance to come to you in the form of an idea that finally has a chance to get your undivided attention. These thoughts and ideas that come to you from times of quiet solitude can represent an important message about what you want to do with your life and how you need to shape your future. Your dreams and inspirations will remind you that life needs magic to be worth living. It’s a time to ask yourself if you’re living a life that pleases you, if you are living the life you want and were meant to have. Answers to that question may hold the keys you are seeking.
When you are in need of this “quiet time,” your body and mind will send you a signal. When you are feeling moody, lost, or set apart from the rest of the world . . . you realize that you need some time alone. And this message you get from your inner self shows that you need to take some time to withdraw into yourself. It can be a time of sincerely asking what gives your life meaning. It’s a time to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, and how to get there. Put some distance between yourself and a situation so that you can reflect on what is really happening and look to your own inner wisdom for counsel. Sometimes you have to wait awhile for an answer to be clear. Not all solutions are revealed easily or immediately. But “seek and you shall find” is a message of the Hermit card. The responses may come to you through stray messages and answers of quiet significance.
The Hermit also lets you know that this is a time in which to be prudent. You should stand back from a current issue for now rather than trying to actively participate in it. Keep a distance so that you can make a clearer evaluation of what is going on. It’s a time for careful planning rather than action. Although you might see that someone could use the wisdom of your advice and experience, the Hermit indicates it is better to wait until that person seeks you out. When that person is ready to receive your advice, he is more likely to put it to good use. You can then shed some light from your own experiences.
Libra Affirmation: I appreciate the moments of quiet space that I can claim for myself – even if only a few minutes of clear, focused inner reflection that will serve me and my direction well.
SCORPIO: Queen of Wands
If you want something done, Scorpio, you’re the one who can do it with this Queen of Wands “go-getter” kind of energy behind you! This is a time in which you can make things happen. Whether you need to light a fire under your own self – or someone else – this fiery energy can do just that! If you’ve been putting something off, use this energy to get moving. The Queen of Wands is your ally who reminds you of the powerful energy you hold – and energy that can help you accomplish great things this month.
The Queen of Wands is about nurturing self-confidence — your own, and/or that of others. This is a time to be in touch with you are and to bring forth your most honorable and trustworthy self . . . and act to achieve your own vision according to your own truths.
Expect new directions or avenues of progress to emerge in your life, along with new opportunities to achieve a goal that you hold dear. This illuminating card from the fire element lets you know how important it is to light a spark and move forward in your ambitions. You can be and do what you want if you let yourself. Be true to yourself. Reach for success . . . it’s there waiting for you to take hold and utilize it to your full advantage!
Scorpio Affirmation: I choose to go for it! This month, I am engaging in creative pursuits and freely expressing myself, while encouraging others to also put energy into their own talents.
SAGITTARIUS: Reversed Four of Swords
If something has been stalled, delayed, or sitting “on hold” recently, the Reversed Four of Swords lets you know that it’s soon going to be time to get back into action. Perhaps you have had a temporary break or reprieve from some challenging matters, but now it’s going to be time to go back into battle, as things are not yet resolved.
Make an effort to move your attention from the problem to the solution. Take responsibility and find solutions rather than dwelling on who is at fault. A more positive train of thought will open up more options for you than a mindset that is filled with stress, anger, or resentment. A refreshed mind is also far more productive than a weary and overstressed one! Look for a new outlook or perspective on the issues you are dealing with.
If you can be patient and work through the struggles you are experiencing and the ones that may still be ahead, you can finally obtain what you want or what you are working so hard to accomplish. It’s not always going to be easy. In fact, it can seem that you go through more rough times than easy ones for awhile . . . but determination will get you through — as long as you also remember to take care of yourself and take a break from the stress when you can do so.
Use discretion and caution at this time. Although this card suggests getting back into action, it doesn’t imply that you should make choices in haste!
Sagittarius: With a renewed mindset, I am ready to tackle the challenges that come my way, and I’m prepared to fight for what is right. The time for laying low is done, and now I’m ready to get back into action.
CAPRICORN: Reversed Two of Pentacles
Capricorn, you may find that you simply have too much on your plate. There may be too many things going on all at once, or you’ve bitten off more than you can reasonably chew with too many commitments.
Even if you take on all that you do with the best of intentions, the Reversed Two of Pentacles warns you that quality in each of your ventures can greatly suffer because of having too much to juggle in your life at the same time. You can end up dropping the ball on something that is important.
If you’ve got too much going on, work on prioritizing what is most important. Focus on just a couple of things first. See them through to completion, and then you’ll be in a better position to pick up something else and give that your attention as well. Trying to do it all doesn’t make you a hero, Capricorn . . . but handling the most important priorities first and doing them right is what will make you that hero
Capricorn Affirmation: I choose two things among the many that are vying for my attention and focus on doing a good job with those things first. The other items on the agenda can happen another day. I will think of quality first, not just the quantity.
AQUARIUS: Ten of Pentacles
You’ve come a long ways, Aquarius, but hard work is paying off! You may now be reaching the end of an important journey that has brought you reward at its conclusion. But all great endings give rise to the start of even greater new beginnings as well.
Your theme in the Ten of Pentacles this month is about security, stability, family, and home life. Home is where the heart is, and you may be feeling comfortable in the security and the blessings of your home and family. Life can feel pretty fine under this energy. And whatever it’s taken to get to the better place you find yourself in . . . it was worth it.
If you still don’t feel like you’re there, or “home” yet, not to worry, Aquarius, because the Ten of Pentacles is a good indication that you are at least well on your way, and you likely have some great people supporting your efforts in whatever you are working to achieve. Enjoy the rewards that come to you this month. You have earned them.
Aquarius Affirmation: I do what I love with passion and care, and the rewards come in due time.
PISCES: The High Priestess
Pay attention to your intuition and hunches, Pisces, because these inner feelings may have a lot to tell you at this time. While this is not the right time to act on your hunches and impulses, it’s the right time to really listen to your “inner knowing.”
Waiting is your best course of action for anything of major consequence, because this time of waiting can also bring more information and insight to the light. You might not have all the facts just yet, but when you finally hold all the secrets and all the previously hidden elements, you will then be at the right time and place to make a decision or take some kind of action. So additionally, don’t be quick to jump to premature conclusions as well. Even first impressions of new people you meet might change after a little bit of time.
Bide your time and hold your peace, Pisces, because although someone might not be telling the whole story or is holding back on something, more will be revealed to you in time. In the meantime, gather your own silent data through watching the body language of others, listening carefully to what people have to say – and even listening for the things that are not said. You can actually learn a lot from that, as you learn to read between the lines to discover some unspoken truths.
Pisces Affirmation: I listen to and trust my intuition. I accept that I may not be able to know all that I want to know at a given time, but I also know that eventually the answers I need will be revealed.
Wishing you a Happy September!!
