As Summer begins, we are gifted with the longest day of the year as the Sun moves into the sensitive and receptive sign of Cancer on June 21st. Neptune went into retrograde in the sign of Pisces of the 18th of June and will remain so until the end of November. This transit asks us to take a look at how we are developing both spiritually and emotionally. How do your emotions impact your sense of spirituality? What truths are you being asked to look at, even if they may be painful? How has escapism whether it be through sex, drugs, alcohol, over-eating, social media, etc., had an effect on your life or the lives of those around you? This transit asks you to strip away illusions and step into reality. Focus on optimism and remain hopeful.

Shortly thereafter on June 26th, Mars will go retrograde in the sign of Aquarius (and Capricorn) until August 27th. This will have us thinking about how we deal with injustices, how we can shake things up to take a new and innovative approach, and determining our role in the community at large. How do we think about our independence? Are we really free? Where are we feeling backed into a corner? Jupiter which has been retrograde in Scorpio since March will finally go direct on July 10th! Yay! This will be the breath of fresh air you've been waiting for.

As we enter eclipse season, we will have a partial solar eclipse on July 12th in the sign of Cancer which will be followed up by a total lunar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius on July 27th, and another partial solar eclipse in the sign of Leo on August 11th - whew! If you are looking for guidance on how to best navigate these eclipses, my Lunar & Solar Eclipse Reading will be available for purchase in the shop from July 9th to August 15th. The second full Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in the sign of Leo and last from July 26th to August 19th. Prepare yourself for Mercury Rx with my Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde, Don't Fear the Retrograde article. 

Saturn, a planet of structure and responsibility which has been retrograde in the sign of Capricorn since April, will finally go direct on September 6th. Saturn in Capricorn is about hard lessons, practicality, and hard work. It asks us to think about how responsible and disciplined we are when it comes to our work and money. What needs to be restructured, is old, or outdated? This can possibly be of aid to you if you've been struggling in your work or financial sector a bit. 

For your Summer 2018 Tarotscopes, I will be using the the Temptress Tarot and the My Quality Time Self-Care Activity Deck. Please be sure to also read the Tarotscopes for your Moon and Rising Signs as well for a more complete picture as to the energy surrounding you personally this summer from June 21st to September 21st 2018. In addition, you can also stay tuned to the Maven Unmasked YouTube Channel for more great info!

For my readers in the Southern Hemisphere, these cards will still apply to you, even though you are entering the Winter Solstice. You can also check out my Winter 2017 Tarotscopes.

OVERALL ENERGY | THE DEVIL

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: TAKE YOURSELF ON A DATE

Be mindful of your sense of safety and security as well as any co-dependency issues this summer loves! Are you in any relationships that feel controlling or restrictive? Have you been overindulging in risky behavior or unhealthy habits? In what areas of your life are you afraid to voice your thoughts and opinions? Now is the time to break free! Don't let fear or good sex keep you stuck in a toxic situation or relationship. There are other fish in the sea. 

Take yourself on a date. Show yourself some appreciation! Pick a venue, date, time, and place. Mark it on your calendar. Then GO. You won't pressure yourself for something you're not ready for, you don't have to get all dressed up (unless you want to of course), and you know that you can count on yourself at the end of the night. Free yourself from the need for someone else to do it for you, when you can do bad all by yourself. 

Love Message: If you're single and on the dating scene this summer, do your research so you won't wind up on a date with the devil in disguise. Listen to your gut instincts and be sure to let a trusted friend know where you'll be and who you'll be with. You don't want to be catfished or with having drinks with someone who doesn't have your best interests at heart.

ARIES | FOUR OF CUPS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: LEARN SOMETHING NEW

You may find yourself feeling bored, unsatisfied, or apathetic this summer Aries. You are yearning for more and tired of what exists in front of you. Did you see that flash out of the corner of your light? New light is breaking through to illuminate a new option that has been there for quite some time and yet, you have been too busy focused on the lack to even notice it, let alone appreciate it. If you've been doing the same thing over and over and you're still getting the same results, beating your head against a wall, maybe now is the time to do things differently. Step out of your comfort zone this summer and focus on trying to learn something new to bring you a deeper sense of fulfillment and the joy you long for.

TAURUS | THE TOWER

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: PLAY MORE, STRESS LESS

You've got a LOT on your mind this summer Taurus! It's weighing heavily on you and may be causing you to stress out a bit. Are you making something bigger than it is? The more you worry, the deeper the roots the travel into your subconscious. Don't let it grow any further! Big changes are in store for you! What seeds of positivity and loving calm can you plant in your mind? Water those thoughts. Let go of the need for control. Let loose and have a little fun! Play is a great way to destress. What does play mean to you? It could be as simple as singing a silly song, building a sandcastle at the beach, going to an amusement park, or playing with children.

GEMINI | SEVEN OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: RECONNECT QUIETLY WITH NATURE (SANS PHONE)

You've been patiently waiting for the growth to happen, for the rose to blossom, for the gates to open and this summer will be no different Gemini. You've let it all hang out and now what? Know that not all flowers bloom in summer. All rose buds don't unfold at the same time. They all are on their own unqiue and individual time frame that has been gifted to them by the divine. This is a lesson in patience for you - BIG TIME. Take advantage of this moment of pause. Connect more with yourself and with nature. Take a break from social media and hanging with friends, and go to a local park or nature reserve to reflect quietly with self.

CANCER | EIGHT OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: TREAT YO' SELF

This summer may have you burning the midnight oil Cancer! This could manifest itself in a variety of ways from taking a new class, starting a new career or business, or even hitting the gym and making healthier lifestyle choices. Your momentum is off the charts! Just make sure to take time and treat yourself regularly! If you keep plugging away, depriving yourself, and don't have a cheat day every now and then, you may become resentful or just give up all together! What is a fresh, sweet, colorful, and healthy way that you can treat yourself for all of your hard work, dedication, and effort?

 

 

 

Leo Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

LEO | FOUR OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: GET A NEW HAIRDO

You may find yourself saving for something special this summer Leo, just don't be greedy or miserly. Take stock of your relationship with money. How is your spending and your saving ratio looking? Do you need to adjust your budget to better suit your lifestyle? Do you feel that you don't have or aren't making enough? Are there material items that you're lusting for and that money could be better spent elsewhere? I feel this month is really about personal willpower and solar plexus chakra work for you. Respect your money and your money will respect you. To help you feel like a million bucks even if your bank account says otherwise, take a trip to the salon, dye your hair, or get a new do!

VIRGO | KNIGHT OF SWORDS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: SWITCH UP YOUR MAKE-UP ROUTINE

Expression and attitude. Watch your words this summer Virgo for they have the power to cut like a knife. Be mindful of how you are communicating with others - are you truly hearing their words and taking them in or are you already on to your next point before they can get a word in edgewise? Passion is great! Just try not to dominate the conversation and be respectful of others who wish to voice their opinions as well. How can you express yourself through your make-up this summer? Sharpen up your brows and eyeliner instead of your tongue. Switch up your make-up routine or try a new color or product. There are so many ways to show other aspects of your personality through your make-up.

LIBRA | THE STAR

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: LIBRARY BINGE

This summer will really be a show of hope, faith, and belief for you Libra. How strong are these sacred three in your life, in your world? Do you still dare to dream and wish upon a star? Do you look up at the night sky full of curiosity and wonder? Paint the night sky with your prayers this summer Libra. What do you truly believe? Not just in terms of spirituality but in terms of life, the galaxy, the infinite stars in the sky? Now is a great time to explore that on a deeper level. Hit the library! Take a day where you can immerse yourself in the smell of old books as you leisurely stroll the aisles and scan the titles on the shelves. Whatever sparks your fancy, pull it out and just start reading - you may surprise yourself.

SCORPIO | TWO OF SWORDS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME

Looks like you've got some ideas caught in the pipeline this summer Scorpio. Where do you go next? What do you wish to do? Due to your uncertainty, you may find yourself frozen in place, too sacred to make a move for fear of making the wrong one. There are so many unknowns and you aren't sure if you have the knowledge to press on any further. Take time away from wrestling these ideas and take off the blindfold. What are you not seeing clearly? You don't have all the information yet and that's totally okay. Spend some time this summer volunteering to help take you out of your head and your immediate environment. This can help to clear your mind and give you fresh perspective as well as a deeper sense of gratitude.  

 

 

 

Sagittarius Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

SAGITTARIUS | ACE OF SWORDS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: SHARE YOUR GIFT

A new idea or fresh way of thinking is available to you this summer Sagittarius. Clarity and expression of truth on a whole new level are on your mind. Know that this is again, a "new" idea or belief. It is not fully developed yet, so be open to change and constructive guidance. Now is also a good time for you to focus on cutting cords, beliefs, and old ways of thinking that no longer serve you out of your life. Taking a stand for what you believe is right and staking your claim will be paramount for you. This will help to feel more comfortable sharing your gifts and may even encourage others to share theirs. What a beautiful gift that is!

CAPRICORN | PAGE OF CUPS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: CLEANSE & DETOXIFY

You are soaking up energy like a sponge this summer Capricorn! Your heart is open and you are feeling all the feels. Can you say empath? There may even be a few childhood issues resurfacing to be healed. Take care of your heart chakra and allow yourself to be purged of any toxic or impure energy. Be sure to cleanse and detoxify your energy regularly this season. Activated charcoal anyone? There are tons of ways to clear your energy from burning sage and palo santo to salt baths, selenite wands, and egg cleansing (limpia). Bring a fresh face to the game! You can even do a detoxifying face mask or cut out sugar and caffeine. 

 

 

 

Aquarius Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

AQUARIUS | THE EMPEROR

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: PAY IT FORWARD

You've learned discipline, respect, and self-restraint, now is the time to step up and show it this summer Aquarius! Step up and be a leader. Lead by example through your structure, practicality, and good works. Let your knowledge and wisdom shine through in your actions, words, and how you carry yourself. Who in your life has been a mentor to you? What tools did they use? This summer, begin to pay it forward and take them out for coffee. Give guidance to those who were once in your shoes - lost or looking for a teacher. You have the intuitive foresight that they may lack for your skills have been refined through time and challenge. Pay it forward by using this to help them grow.

PISCES | ACE OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: SEE A MOVIE

This summer is about all planting seeds for new career and financial opportunities for you Pisces! Abundance and good health are also available to you. You may even start a new physical care routine whether that be dieting, exercising, or just taking better care of your physical health overall. The ball is in your court. Plant the seed and watch it grow, just remember that you must nurture it. Don't give up if it doesn't sprout overnight. Get your self-care on this summer by laying back and curling up to a new movie or a flick that's a tried and true fave! Romance? Action? Comedy? Netflix or Hulu? Think of what new money making ideas can be generated through watching film or just relaxing your mind enough to think outside of the box!
