NUMINOUS TAROTSCOPES: JULY 2019

In our Numinous Tarotscopes for July 2019, Bess Matassa shares the card for your sign with both an audio and a written reading. What’s in the cards for you this month?

COLLECTIVE CARD FOR JULY 2019: Three of Cups

Where is the love? This seemingly simple question carries us through the watery astro energies of July, as we open up to all heart-shaped forms of human connection.

Forget your definitions of “true” love. Forgo your carefully constructed definitions of “healthy” and “toxic” when it comes to relationships. The 3 of Cups asks us to simply let the heart want what it wants, for as long as it lasts. Ruled by shape-shifter Mercury in the emo sign of Cancer, this card calls for subtle adjustments to how we relate. Maybe this means stepping away from swiping left to spend more time in solitude. Maybe it means catching a stranger’s gaze on the street and holding it steady. Or maybe it’s a raucous night with your soul family, swapping stories til dawn, content to feel truly seen.

Connected to the energy of the Empress, the Tarot’s 3 cards herald an unstoppable unfolding, moving us past shame and into the sensual aliveness of what just feels good to touch and taste. This July, there are as many shades and flavors of love as there are lovers to feel it.

Read on for the card, mantra, and cosmic audio reading for your sign …

LEO OR LEO RISING: The Emperor

“Standing my ground feels like second skin.”

Dig in Leo. Widen your legs and arms and embrace this as your land. After June’s invitations to pair your fire with earth, there’s a deeply settled quality to July. The Emperor wants us to claim our right to be here with naturalness and ease. To walk this earth like our incarnations were not accidental. What turf do you feel like you don’t even have to claim? This could be a literal space, or an energetic domain that you just organically possess. With Mercury retrograde rolling through your sign and the Cancer Sun igniting your arena of soul security, you’re being asked to look past external accolades and consider where you simply feel safe in your own skin. Surround yourself with the people and projects that feel like your natural element. Moving through your life should be as easy breezy as breathing.

VIRGO OR VIRGO RISING: 10 of Wands

“Saying I’ve had enough creates more serenity.”

After June’s subtle shifts in consciousness, you’re poised to break major patterns in July, and this starts by laying down your weapons, Virgo. Where have you quite literally had “enough?” The 10 of Wands is the saturation point of fire. The level we hit with taking action where we just “can’t even” anymore. What if this prospect could feel like the aftermath of a really incredible orgasm, rather than a failure? You’ve reached the pinnacle. You’ve sweated it out. And now you get to lie back in your bed and bask. With the futuristic area of your chart activated by this month’s astro energies, you’re ready to roll differently, without your sometimes endless need to tweak and refine. Consider where you might be able to mine support and let someone else clean the dishes. Let the sense of enoughness taste like polishing off a completely satisfying meal. Lick your chops and curl up to sleep.

LIBRA OR LIBRA RISING: 2 of Pentacles Rx

“When I move towards what’s blooming, the rest falls away.”

June dropped you into the driver’s seat, Libra, asking you to take greater ownership over your decision-making and release from the steely grip of others’ agendas. And July invites you to make good on the promise of your own prerogative, starting to step out into the world towards the lush greenery that’s begging for your attention. The 2 of Pentacles can sometimes feel like a little death, as we’re invited to release and refocus, letting what we can’t carry any more slip away from our hands. But rather than mourn the loss of whatever’s receding, how can you bring your full gaze to what’s blooming, Libra? Put on your horse blinders and turn down the noise. Zoom in to what’s pushing through the soil. With Cancer Season energies activating the most public part of your chart, there’s no messing around right now, sweet one. Consider every move you make to be a part of your emerging legacy, and select bold choices you’d be willing to back as a permanent part of your bio.

SCORPIO OR SCORPIO RISING: The King of Wands

“Ready or not, I’m ready to unleash it.”

June awakened the exuberance of your fire, Scorpio, asking you to embrace your strut and let your whole life feel looser and more libidinous. With the King of Wands guiding you into July, there’s a rallying cry energy that’s lighting up your cells and asking you to take this libido to the next level. Drop the analysis. Release the maybes. Take a moment to remember a time when you “just did it.” Maybe it was an emergency where you had to rise to the occasion. Or a delicious risk that you bungee-jumped into just for the sheer joyousness. That energy is available to you right now in some area of your life. This month’s watery Cancer vibes want to return you to the sweetness inside of your feeling force. Even in the midst of catharsis, there is a seed of creation, Scorpio. Let whatever wants to come up and out unleash itself on your world, reshaping the landscape and reaffirming your very right to feel alive.

SAGITTARIUS OR SAGITTARIUS RISING: The Wheel of Fortune

“Life gets wilder when I loosen my grip.”

You’ve been moving through some watery energies this year, Sag, learning to love up on your lovability, and spend time in the inner sanctum of your heart without having to constantly chase the next fire. And after June’s call to more deeply consider where you’re putting your passions, July invites you to get low to the ground, content to let the Sun rise and fall of its own accord. This means release, Sag. This means actually believing in the magic and mystery you so often feel in the moments of formlessness when you drop the agenda and let yourself fly. The Wheel of Fortune is a roll and a turn. It’s an act of profound faith when we say yes to letting our lives simply unfold without us having to stick our fingers in the spokes. With this month’s astro energies crowding your underground house of intimacy and intensity, you’re refining your relationship to control. Where could you shift into autopilot right now, Sag? Drop the urge to pedal and roll down the windows instead.

CAPRICORN OR CAPRICORN RISING: The Knight of Swords Rx

“Dropping into the flow helps me build new forms.”

June’s magic was major, Capricorn, as you learned to harness what was here and greet all kinds of weather with glee. After embracing your own brand of witchery, July’s invitation asks you to take this confidence in your crafting ability and carry it into a deeper kind of self-study. In the reversed position, the Knight of Swords sinks us beneath the buzz of the endlessly actionable head, and into subtler rhythms. You’re often given to divining how to insert yourself into existing structures, figuring out how you “fit” and rising to meet the role. But how could you let the inner actually shape the outer right now, Cappy? With Cancer energies activating your relationship axis, you’re recalibrating between form and flow, letting your sensitivities take the lead and take up some space. Rather than carefully constructing your sand castle, grain by grain, let your emo waters shape the shoreline, remembering that your own life answers to your very own call.

AQUARIUS OR AQUARIUS RISING: The Hierophant

“Deconstruction seeds the next creation.”

June found you diving into a pool of “me-first” medicine, as you learned to carefully interweave your capacity for contribution with closer attention to your own, sweet cravings. As July dawns, you’re asked to dig underneath the set agenda and trace the origins of your beliefs, embracing the credo that ‘the way you do one thing is the way you do everything.’ Connected to the sign of Taurus, the Hierophant is about claiming the right to our embodied beliefs, swapping book learning for the hard-earned personal philosophy of the open road. Where could you dive back into the fray, Aquarius? Where do you no longer need to be the careful teacher, keeping it all together? It’s a month to get messy and let yourself remain thoroughly in process, sidling up to the spontaneous awakenings that occur through street smarts. As the current astrological energies crowd your house of undoing the laces, it’s time to freshen up your copy books and apprentice yourself to whatever lesson is here.

PISCES OR PISCES RISING: The Chariot

“Pushing past comfort awakens unexpected courage.”

June served up the stuff that dreams are made of, as you practiced focusing in on a distant vision and incubating it with tenderness. And now July’s energy is dropping you into open waters and teaching you how to swim. Before this sends you clamoring for a life jacket, take a moment to congratulate yourself on all your courage. Whether it’s a microscopic act of mojo or a triumphal marathon finish, something is coming to its glorious conclusion right now. The Chariot asks us to break out the banners and the bubbly water. But after the cup-runneth-over celebration, it’s time to push further, Pisces. Not out of a sense of “never enough,” but borne from the reality that as long as you live and breathe, your very cells are evolving. With cosmic energies dancing through your zone of exposure, where can you soften the fear that you won’t be able to sustain your shine? Challenge your concept of the success/failure binary and just choose the high dive that gets your blood pumping, Pisces. Push it, Pisces. Push it real good.

ARIES OR ARIES RISING: Ace of Wands

“Getting back to the basics feels boldly beautiful.”

In the words of country crooner Waylon Jennings, “maybe it’s time we got back to the basics of love,” Aries. After June’s invitation to befriend your whole feelings fam, you may find yourself spent, broken open and tender from the compassionate sensation that you deserve all the sweetness. July’s energy is here to wash you onto shore, blending all those soft feels with your original strength. The Aces are beautiful packages of their element, tied up with a bow and ready for opening. And in the Wands suit you’re being re-gifted your fire, Aries. What is returning to you right now? This could be a literal passion from the past that you’ve recently recovered, or a far more esoteric sense of knowing exactly what you have that can never be stolen. As Cancer Season energies activate the root system of your chart, you’re asked to lay down the welcome mat and invite yourself on home.

TAURUS OR TAURUS RISING: 4 of Pentacles

“Choosing what to absorb helps me find my center.”

If you dipped into last month’s Page of Cups energy, Taurus, you were able to soften the hard edges, remembering that you have the right to love again, even in the face of hurt. On the surface, July’s energy feels quite distinctive, as the 4 of Pentacles asks you to weather-proof your windows, creating energetic and emotional boundaries. But this exercise in hunkering down and drawing in isn’t about shutting anything out or playing it “safe.” Instead, it’s an opportunity to build integrity, noticing where energy leaks are leaving you spent, and sticking your skin back to your very bones. What is your center, Taurus? Maybe it’s an embodied practice of sweating it out to a thumping beat. Or an imagistic anchor that you use to focus when you’ve lost your bearings. With the current astro energies inundating your hard-packed earthy shores with water energy, you’re asked to consider exactly what you’re choosing to soak up.

GEMINI OR GEMINI RISING: 5 of Swords

“When I slip out of the spin, I slide into sweetness.”

Your birthday month of June invited you to loosen your hard concepts about love and widen your capacity for compassionate coupling, Gemstone. And as you step into July, you’re asked to build on this sense of renovated connection, as you explore how your partnerships and patterns of relating reflect exactly what you think about yourself. The 5 of Swords can send us into a bit of a spin, as we search for a “hit” from a situation that somehow always makes us feel “less than.” This is your opportunity to boldly interrupt that narrative, Gemini. You know exactly where this energy lives, whether it’s a person you keep expecting to treat you differently, or an internal storyline that shrinks you. You don’t need to strong arm yourself into immediate change, but just know that the 5s offer you the friction that makes evolution possible. With the current astro energies activating your house of worthiness, the time is ripe for using all that pressure to cut yourself into a brand new diamond.
