Hello again, Saturn direct! Let’s tap into Saturn’s ambitious energy to harness our drive and get rid of our couchpotato self. We have had enough break, and now it’s time to roll our sleeves and work, work, work. Scroll down to read career/money reading on this week's Tarotscope.
 
When Saturn turns direct on Sunday the 14th, our long-term goals and responsibilities will become clearer. We’ve been in a haze for the past 4.5 months, not knowing what to do or where to go. If you’ve been confused about planning your career or study, Saturn direct will illuminate you in that aspect.
 
The great thing about Saturn direct is its ability to push you to strive harder. Honestly, I’ve been planning to launch my silver jewelry line, but I’ve been procrastinating like s***. I have been taking so many breaks because I’m confused about what’s next.
 
With additional Uranus retrograde and Jupiter in Virgo infusing Saturn’s energy, fellow procrastinators will procrastinate no more! Uranus the rebellious is being put on hold, while our luck thrives in hard work and perseverance (Virgo). Simply put, we don’t have any more excuses to put our projects on hold if we want to reap success.
 
Saturn goes direct just in time for a T-Square aspect. Saturn and Mars are locked in between an opposition created by Neptune retrograde and Venus; creating two square aspects with the two planets. During this period, it’s important for us to understand that daydreaming doesn’t always bring money to the table.
 


Venus in Virgo means there will be more money if you put hard work into what you do. Added with Saturn direct square aspects, our career and responsibility is an obstacle that we need to overcome. You want an easy way out, I get it, we all do. But if you really want to get that dream handbag, all you can do is work as hard as you can, so you can swipe your debit card for it (no credit card, please, unless you can pay it).
 
So, stop procrastinating, get on that career ladder no matter how hard it is, because that’s the only way you’ll tap into your money luck. Good luck everyone! *crossing fingers*

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
The Hierophant
 
Seems like the lady luck is doing well with you! Your financial situation seems to be improving, considering there will be more money coming for you. If you’re a freelancer, you’re doing great, if you’re in the corporate rat race, the luck wouldn’t be as high. Nevertheless, you’ll find yourself swarmed with responsibility to finish all projects at once and you won’t have enough time to go out and have fun. Don’t complain. Just enjoy this period of hard work period, Leo. Collect and save as much money as you can before your luck runs out.
 
You should listen to:
Work - Iggy Azalea
 
You should wear:
Lust
Embrace your inner sass and let your true #bosslady out, Leo! Now is not the time to mess around with your outer look. Invest in a luxury item of your own, something that represents your years of hard work. It can be a nice handbag, a bespoke jewelry, or an elegant timepiece. You don’t have to bling your entire outfit, a luxury item or two can instantly improve your looks.
 
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Prince of Swords
 
Money will come once you’re confident enough to go out there and conquer your demons. It’s too easy to retreat, Virgo, and we all know that you are more than this. When everyone around you tells you that things will go down, listen to what your intuition has to say. Don’t give up yet until you get what you came for.

 
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Two of Swords (Peace)
 
This week is the time for you to recalibrate your goal. What can you do to increase your income? Don’t take a few projects at once yet because you’re going to be overwhelmed, Libra. I get it, it’s tempting to put yourself out there, but it’s not going to improve your financial situation as you thought it would.
 
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Seven of Cups (Debauch)
 
Money may come through career and your networking in form of various small opportunities, but it slowly starts to drain your excitement. You want everything to stop overlapping on top of each other. So why not take a break? A nice break on the weekend can help you recharge, Scorpio.
 
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
The Devil
 
You need to be a little careful of the way you express yourself, Sagittarius. There’s a lot of tension in your workplace, which can cause a lot of miscommunication. Stay cool-headed and get ready to compromise. Doesn’t sound like the best option for you, but it could save your position and your career.
 
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Ten of Wands (Oppression)
 
Before you make a new decision for your career, see if you can spend some time to weigh your options. Go for the one that
would help you to grow, not the one 

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Fortune
 
Unless you have straightened your situation with your peers/colleagues, it would be tough to move past your money issue. I wish you have more control over your financial situation, but now the only thing you can do is wait and hope you’ll get your payment so you can find a way to pay your dues soon. 
 
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Six of Wands (Victory)
 
Actually, if you’re willing to listen to your loved one, you can easily get out of this mess. Work and career can seem awfully scary if you’re not sure how to handle it. But the people around you know what to do. So take their advice and get out of your cocoon. Let’s do something different this time, Pisces! 

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Eight of Cups (Indolence)
 
You’re not sure what you’ve been doing at work. It seems like an easy money because you just know what to do, but you feel trapped because it doesn’t allow you to have time to do other things. Yet quitting seems tempting too. Don’t make any decision yet, Aries. Think it through and weigh your pros and cons. 
 
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Five of Wands (Strife)
 
Money seems to come pretty quick, but they’re quick to leave too! The card gives a few suggestions, either you stop providing too much for another person (for now) or find some small projects to work on. But, most importantly, improve your bookkeeping skill and track your expenses.
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Two of Wands (Dominion)
 
Ambition doesn’t always lead you to bigger projects, Gemini. Bigger projects don’t always lead to better income, too! If you get an offer that is too good to be true, try to consult with someone who is more of an expert. You’re hungry for more, I know, but please be careful and watch your step.
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Knight of Disks
 
Congratulations, Cancer! Your hard work is starting to get noticed. This is a slow progress, as you need to build your reputation, but you’re getting there. Don’t ask for promotion yet, wait til it’s being handed to you. Meanwhile, set a new goal and intention for yourself. You’re on the right track.
