In the years that I have been doing these monthly readings, I have never before had 4 major arcana as the only duplications. This is a major event! In fact, 5 of the 9 cards I draw are major arcana this month. The energetic messages from the repeated cards are that we are unlikely to feel very settled, we won’t know where we are going and
we will be surrounded by people sowing the seeds of illusion. It is time for us to take a deep dive into who we are as people and tackle those bad habits that are holding us back. Opportunities could arrive out of the blue and it’s important not to dismiss them out of hand just because they weren’t expected or different to the direction we would normally take and, finally, it is time for us to take that
leap of faith and come out of our comfort zones – many of us have stagnated for too long.
As we start off this month opportunities could start coming our way. They don’t always come in ways we might expect so it’s important that they are given due consideration before they are accepted or
dismissed. Fate is busy playing a role in our abundance and that is why many of these opportunities won’t be ones we were even looking for – fate just wants to know what we would do with the opportunity presented.
The first part of September comes in with quite a fanfare. The Moon and The Devil pack a powerful punch. It is likely we will be completely confused and swimming in a lake of illusions – my advice is not to take everything with a pinch of salt, but with a whole barrel full. Put every bit of news through a rigorous truth test whether it’s something someone in your inner circle has heard or it comes from on high through various
media sources. We are going to be fed a load of lies and empty promises this month so hold on to your hats! We are being asked to become more vigilant and proactive within ourselves – it’s time to evaluate who we are, what we want and unearth any reasons that we could be sabotaging ourselves. We could be looking at diet and exercise, or negative belief
patterns. The important thing to remember is that it our decision if we want to change ourselves – it’s nobody else’s business and they shouldn’t be making suggestions if they are.
In the middle part of the month there’s the potential of more money coming our way.
Some of us could get a pay rise, or it could come from some other source, but we’ll have more money at our disposal than we have had before. Now is the time that we are being asked to take a leap of faith, to jump off the cliff into the unknown and out of our comfort zones. Comfort zones often become prisons over time so it’s good to make the decision to expand our world while the choice is still
ours to make.
Towards the end of September we could get the urge to start a diet or exercise regime, or save some money rather than spending it. We will be motivated to look after ourselves on a material and physical level. Some of us (maybe those of us who
haven’t already taken that leap of faith) will also be asking ourselves the question ‘do I stay with what I have, or do I put my energy into something else?‘ We might have come to the conclusion that though not everything is bad or unpleasant about our current situation, there could be much better opportunities elsewhere.
As we come to the end of the month we are being asked to make willing sacrifices in order to have a more prosperous and happier future. So we would be wise to look at our lives and see what and who is enhancing and encouraging us, and who or what is holding us back. We will come out with a much better idea of what and who needs to be let go of in
order for us to grow and flourish in the years ahead.
Our luck throughout the month is to make sure that we listen to the people around us. I emphasise ‘listen’ – we don’t have to do what they say! Our tendency might be to think we know best or not be open
to what certain people have to say, but our resistance to hearing them out could mean that we don’t hear a valuable piece of information, to our detriment.
September is all set to be as challenging, if not more so, than August. There is a stronger urgency about getting our affairs in order, embracing self-improvement and cutting ties with the things that no
longer nurture us. This month we have to be even more aware though because of the increased lies and illusions that will be flying around with gay abandon. If someone tells you the time, check your watch!
I wish you a month full of clarity and the strength to make the choices that matter.
