Weekly horoscope for August 30 – September 5 – your week ahead according to Kerry King and her tarot cards

EVERY Sunday, our resident Tarotscope reader Kerry King will be revealing what surprises, challenges and excitement awaits you in the week ahead.

Kerry has been practising tarot readings for the last 20 years, starting from reading for friends to amassing an international client list.

Using her strong intuition and deep knowledge and understanding of the horoscope, she is able to provide accurate and encouraging predictions for the coming days.

Here’s her predictions for YOUR star sign…

ARIES (Four of Swords, Seven of Coins, Death)

You don’t half hold your feet to the fire, Aries, and put yourself in critical situations, right on the front line.

It’s like you need a crisis to spur you into action, to make you be the best version of yourself, but it can get draining, even dangerous actually.

The Four of Swords asks you NOT to head towards the action, but take a break. Chill. Relax. Withdraw from the drama, and find a quiet corner to rest up in. You need time to think.

The Seven of Coins shows that something you’ve been invested with for a long time is changing, and you need to address that, and make changes yourself too.

Death shows this is an important cross roads, a turning point in your life story. Don’t be “done to”, be the “doer”. But that doesn’t come from a place of reaction or crisis, it comes from a place of reflection and planning.

So, make space and time to think and ponder about your life’s pathway, and where you might want to head in future. Things are a-changing, and so are you.

TAURUS (Two of Wands, Five of Coins, Knight of Cups)

The Two of Wands sees you drifting along a little, feeling ambivalent about life and not really committed to any one particular course of action or route.

You’re just taking it all in, seeing where things go, letting events unfold. Why waste energy trying to control things when you’re not actually sure what you want to happen? Fair enough.

I feel like, with the grieving Five of Coins, you’re not really daring to let yourself be happy or to take charge. Something is echoing, from your past, which was painful or taught you a sharp, hard lesson. Once bitten, twice shy.

You don’t want to invest in something, because you don’t quite trust that it’s true, lasting or worth leaning on. Taurus, there are no guarantees about anything. But you can’t stay on the side lines forever, hedging your bets, emotionally withdrawn.

The Knight of Cups asks you to lean in a little more, let your feelings show, acknowledge your emotions and invest more in what you’re doing.

Don’t worry about history repeating itself, it won’t. Don’t sabotage your own happiness by waiting for it to fade. Make hay whilst the sun is shining, and enjoy what you have.

GEMINI (Three of Cups, Ace of Wands, The Hermit)

Of all of the star signs, you are the “most likely” to be able to entertain yourself, and the combination of the Three of Cups and The Hermit show it’s going to be one of those weeks.

You have a twin self, perhaps the only person who really knows what makes you tick, because you’re an enigma to most people.

Select your favourite activities, places and pastimes, and fill your schedule this week with the things you love doing, alone.

Flying solo enables you to relax, you don’t feel the pressure to humour, inform, update or entertain your crowd. It’s hard work being so popular, and you need a break to just rest and rejuvenate and recharge your batteries.

The Ace of Wands reveals you’re likely to have an amazing idea too, something which activates what your next chapter and priority should be, and leaves you itching to get started. Sometimes, less is more.

The fewer inputs and stimulus you receive, the more you’ll have to drum up your own ideas and insights. Get ready for illumination.

CANCER (The Devil, The World, Four of Coins)

A total process of renewal continues for you this week (it began last week with internal realisations and insights).

The Four of Coins shows that any and all ruts you’ve fallen into will be revealed and dismantled. You’re tired of your own BS, tired of each day playing out like the one before it. You are ready for change.

The Devil shows the first step here is to identify your worst, most self-limiting habits or beliefs, and acknowledge the damage they do to you.

When we shine a light on things, it makes it harder to blindly carry on adhering to them. Know thyself, Cancer. Know your demons and, by naming them, you are removing their power over you. Leaving you free to rewrite your plans and your schedule, lighter and brighter, and break a bad habit (or two).

The World is the final card of tarot, it can indicate international travel (so if that’s a dream, then activate it) but more likely it’s about the cycle of life.

We rise and fall, ebb and flow, things start and things end, life is never static (even when we’re relatively inactive).

Recognise that you’re turning a new leaf, a chapter is ending in order that a new one can begin (let this happen, don’t cling on…). Big changes ahead.

LEO (Three of Coins, Eight of Wands, Ace of Swords)

You can make your own luck this week, Leo, through some well-timed self-promotion and visibility. In short, put yourself in opportunity’s pathway.

The Three of Coins reveals that someone with influence is in a position to give you a promotion, a new opportunity, a raise or broader scope of responsibility.

To make this happen, be honest with yourself about what your opportunities are, and where they are to be found.

The Ace of Swords shows that this could all manifest very quickly, within the month, but you have to know where to look, and you have to call it honestly and realistically.

Understand what your natural next step is, and identify who the person is who holds the key to that.

Understand what strengths you bring to the table, and what the stakeholders are looking for. Marry up your abilities with their needs.

The Eight of Wands then asks you to communicate, network, socialise, shout about your successes, share your ambitions. Let it be known what you want. The squeaky wheel gets the oil- it’s true!

VIRGO (The Wheel of Fortune, The Empress, Five of Swords)

An argument this week could change everything- for the better- so don’t avoid or suppress conflicts or issues. Let the trouble emerge and deal with it head on.

The Five of Swords shows you are going to be at odds with someone, but conflict simply helps to shine a light on underlying issues which need resolution. Focus on the issue, not the “noise”.

The Wheel of Fortune reveals that addressing this issue could change everything. You probably don’t realise just how much negativity this hidden thorn has been creating. Address it, and remove a major source of angst in your life.

The Empress hints it’s to do with your family or very closest relationships. And that true love, renewal and affection will emerge as soon as the boil has been lanced.

Things will heal quickly, because this is going to be a clean wound, and it’s cutting away something that has festered for far too long.

LIBRA (Seven of Wands, The Chariot, Eight of Cups)

Sometimes we don’t always know what we want until someone else looks like they are going to get it instead! You’re such an optional person, always hedging your bets, that this rings true for you.

The Eight of Cups shows that something you hoped for might not be panning out, and the dream is fading somewhat.

The Seven of Wands reveals a “last chance saloon” arises this week, to make a case, make a stand, and fight for this. If you want to?

Consider that carefully, Libra. Are you now spurred into action just because a tinge of jealousy has made you feel some emotion? If no one else were interested in this, would you be?

The Chariot shows you can get what you want, but be careful what you wish for. If this IS a hollow prize, then your efforts will ultimately be wasted.

Decide consciously if you’re going to let this go, or fight for it. And then act accordingly.

SCORPIO (Four of Cups, Nine of Wands, Two of Coins)

Staring at something doesn’t make it change or conform to what you want it to be. Sometimes, things happen fastest and easiest when you’re not looking.

The Four of Cups and Nine of Wands combine to give you this advice, this week. Stop picking at the scab, or overthinking the issue, and just go do something else for a bit!

The Two of Coins is the tarot’s variety card, advising you to put your energy into lots of other areas, and spread yourself around more.

When we connect with all the opportunities open to us, and see the scope of possibilities in our life, it makes us feel powerful and expansive.

You’ve got more going for you than you realise, and when you DO realise that, you’ll stop placing so much emphasis on this one thing that’s not working out right.

Get involved with other people, places and activities, and leave the one little thorn in your side to work itself free.

Things will magically shift when you’re not looking. So, don’t look!

SAGITTARIUS (The Fool, Knight of Swords, Six of Coins)

You know you want to activate a new lifestyle, a new routine or even a different role, as shown by the enthusiastic patron saint of new beginnings, The Fool.

You are brimming with optimism for this new pathway, and can only see the positives.

Not everyone agrees with you, though, as shown by the combative Knight of Swords. So what? They don’t have to live your life, that’s your job!

Listen to their concerns, because they might actually make some good points, and you can address them and avoid issues down the line.

The Six of Coins shows that the better you behave now, the easier the process will be and the more people will wish you well, and maybe even help you on your way.

Don’t get all defensive and secretive about your plans when people question you. It’s coming from a good place, because they care.

Discuss your ideas openly, let their questions guide you towards practical actions you can take to strengthen the plan.

But, Sagittarius, do what you’re going to do anyway, don’t let anyone stop you or thwart your good vibe. This is going to be a great adventure!

CAPRICORN (Page of Swords, Queen of Coins, King of Swords)

Three character cards for you this week, Cap, so expect the people in your life to be both demanding and rewarding, probably in equal measure!

Children, siblings, parents, partners… you’ve got it coming from all sides this week. Everyone wants advice, input, support, guidance (which you do secretly love, as you enjoy being a “rock” for others).

Everyone also wants to let you know how much they value you, and need you in their life. Don’t do your usual “block” to compliments and praise; drink this all in, it’s nourishing and rewarding to hear how much you make a difference to others’ lives.

The Page of Swords shows a youngster needs help sticking to something. They feel doubtful or anxious about their plans, and need your support to be resilient enough to keep going.

A female relative wants to share their success, and maybe even treat you, so let them! It makes people feel good to give back.

A male relative or partner is immersed in planning and working out what their future could look like.

It’s been a tough year, and most of us are re-evaluating in some respect. Give them your wise counsel, they could use it.

AQUARIUS (Nine of Cups, The Star, Queen of Swords)

Only you can make your dreams come true, only you have the self-interest, awareness and resilience to manifest your hopes and wishes into your real life. So, what’s stopping you?

Nothing, it turns out. The Star and the Nine of Cups are BOTH powerful wish-come-true cards, and double up to signal you can have whatever you want this week, Aquarius. What wonderful news!

So, what is it? Make this count. Don’t invest this magical energy into something half-hearted or outdated. Be led by your very best hopes!

The Queen of Swords further reveals that the answers and actions to get this gift all lie in your own control.

Don’t look for help or guidance, tune in to your own intuition and strength, and get stuff done.

Make overt and positive moves in the direction of what you wish for, and the Universe will rise up to meet you.

I think you’ll be surprised how amazing this can all be, so have faith, and be confident.

PISCES (Temperance, The Magician, The Sun)

A trio of major arcana (i.e. the “power cards” of the tarot) cards means you’re in for a significant, maybe life-changing, week, and I’m pleased to report the forecast is positive!

Temperance shows that you are shifting your outlook and opinions, coming to a “new normal” on something important, and as everything starts within, this is going to have a knock-on effect in real life.

I think you are seeing yourself in a new light, and it’s illuminating new opportunities for you.

The Magician reveals it’s linked to your creative expression and what you make of your skills and talents.

You could be getting ready to invent something, make something, set up a little shop or online stall, put your skills to good use in the community, invest in learning a new talent… something which has a practical application, and could even make you money down the line!

The Sun shines a light of prosperity and joy on this endeavour, so give it your all. You can’t fail.

You are blessed with good fortune and happiness when you pursue the strengths and skills you innately possess.

See your strengths in a new way, and make more of them.
