A Tarot Reader Predicts What Each Zodiac Should Expect Before 8/21/23


Your card: Knight of Cups

Follow your heart this week. Lead with your emotions, but without the fiery energy that can tear down whole societies. Lead with the softer ones, the romantic feelings, the emotions that want what’s best for you.


Your card: 10 of Pentacles

All that hard work is finally showing some success. You can see the fruits of all your labors and can start to relax and enjoy it. While this card usually means literal monetary gain stability, some successes lead toward an inner peace that’s even more valuable.


Your card: Strength

You’ll need to be strong this week. Strength is about pulling something off even when you feel like you don’t have the energy left. It’s also about knowing when to stand down through strength of character.


Your card: King of Wands

You have the ability to attract people through your charisma, but you’re not always using that skill. Well, now’s the time. Get social, talk to people, show them how magnetic you can be. You never know what cool things can come from it.


Your card: The Star

Have you been feeling like you’re just kind of drifting through life lately? This card is encouraging you to look for your purpose this week. What areas of your life are lacking. Do you have a dream you’ve had at the back of your mind? Now’s your time.


Your card: 5 of Swords

It’s a good thing to fight when a conflict arises, and you’re good at handling yourself when it does. The trouble comes when you’re fighting for the sake of it. This week, if you’re feeling too combative, put down your sword and go for a different approach.


Your card: Queen of Cups

Someone else in your life is going through it this week. Show up for them by being a calm and comforting presence while they process what’s going on. Sometimes just showing up for someone is enough to help them through.


Your card: The Chariot

You’ll get places in life by going with the flow, but will they be the right places? This week, start actually steering the boat. Figure out where you want to be and make even just small steps to get there. You’re about to manifest something great if you do.


Your card: Justice

Strive to keep things fair this week. Life doesn’t always work that way, but you have the power to shift the balance if you just pay attention to the people around you. Step in if you see a power imbalance or notice that some aren’t getting the things they should.


Your card: 3 of Pentacles

You can’t do everything all by yourself, unfortunately. Sometimes you just need to ask for help or work with a group. This week, look for collaborators to help you achieve your short-term goals or get you closer to your dreams.


Your card: The Devil

Temptation is coming your way this week. You’ll have a harder time resisting than you usually do when your vices or addictions pop into your life. Keep an eye on your shadow self–the part of you that finds convenient excuses to do things that you shouldn’t.


Your card: 4 of Cups

You’ve been feeling a disconnect this week. Something just doesn’t feel right. Perhaps it’s an apathy keeping you detached. Maybe you’re living too far in your own head. Keep yourself grounded in the present to claw your way out of this feeling.
