To get your reading, simply close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Then, focus on your intention for the month of August. What do you hope to achieve? What are you looking for guidance on?

Choice 1 - Ace Of Swords (Reversed)

This month's energy shows a lack of thoughts and mental clarity, ignorance, uncertainty, and failure. This behaviour is indicative of bad judgement, unfairness, and procrastination. Negative legal developments, contracts, or communications are other outcomes that could occur.

If you're in a relationship:

The relationship will be tense this week. Miscommunication will hurt the bond you have. The end of the relationship is inevitable if either partner holds any sort of bitterness or resentment towards the other and does not look at resolving the issues.

If you're single:

You'll soon meet someone whose relationship philosophy differs from yours. If you're looking for a committed relationship, you'll probably still end up dating someone who wants a fling, and vice versa. You may make the wrong choice, choose individuals who don't share your values, or simply not be in a suitable mindset to build a meaningful relationship.

Career-wise:

You may fail a job interview or get a job, promotion, or project that doesn't challenge you. You'll encounter career-related creative challenges. Your existing ideas may not be viable or difficult for you to communicate to your colleagues.

Choice 2 - The Strength

This month's energy stresses tackling your raw emotions and self-depricating thoughts to overcome inner struggles and calm yourself or a situation, rising above our doubts, concerns, and anxieties. You have the tools to succeed; now you just need to overcome your apprehensions and believe in yourself. Do what you need to do to get a handle on your feelings, be kind and patient with yourself, and you'll discover a new sense of self-assurance.

If you're in a relationship:

You're a solid couple. If your relationship has gone through a lot of emotional upheaval, you are currently beginning to get back on track, and your prior troubles have actually brought you closer together.

If you're single:

Meeting new people now will be a breeze because your self-assurance will be through the roof. It can also mean that you're going to start dating someone with a bit of a wild side. This can be fun, but you may need to tame them if they're too wild. Instead of dominating them, gently persuade them.

Career-wise:

Monitor your emotions and move forward. Be daring and trust in yourself—you have the abilities and potential. Do what you wish for and reach your potential without fear of failing or looking silly. The time to act is now if you want a higher position. If you feel overlooked, speak out. Believe in yourself and start a business if you've always wanted to.

Choice 3 - The Hanged Man (Reversed)

The month's energy says you may make hasty judgements to avoid disappointment. You'll probably skip from one bad situation to the next without thinking. Check in with yourself to see if there are any feelings you're avoiding or transitions you're putting off. If you have fallen into unhealthy habits, it is time to make some changes. How you treat life will determine how life treats you.

If you're in a relationship,

Because you're terrified of being alone or starting again, you and/or your partner may choose to stay in the toxic relationship. It's possible to fix the relationship, but you may not be ready to talk about your concerns.

If you're single,

If you don't learn from your past, you'll repeat detrimental relationship behavioural patterns. You may move from one unhealthy relationship to another without realising your contribution to it. Relax and contemplate the reasons for your behaviour and expectations, and the changes you can make to break the pattern.

Career-wise:

Even if this month goes well, you may not feel motivated to fix the problems at hand. You may blame others or feel powerless. Regain control of your career. Take command of your life, especially if it's not going where you desire. Pursue the goals you set for yourself now.

Choice 4 - Queen Of Pentacles (Reversed)

This month's energy suggests you may run the risk of losing a lot of opportunities if you are unable to keep a solid handle on the realities of the circumstances at hand. You may approach life in an unrealistic or temperamental manner.

If you're in a relationship,

Jealousy and mistrust can develop in the relationship. You and your partner may be bored or trapped in a loop. Insecurity can lead to clinginess and manipulation. One of you may be uncooperative, disinterested, or unmotivated and expect the other to work hard in the relationship.

If you're single,

Before you can have a healthy relationship, you need to work on yourself. You may doubt yourself or expect others to help you achieve what you want in life. Starting a relationship expecting material or emotional support will fail. Even if they give you what you want, you won't be equal partners, and you may feel anxious or possessive since you'll have too much to lose if the relationship ends.

Career-wise:

To avoid significant problems, you must sacrifice and work hard. I strongly advise against partnering with a firm. When you're together, this individual may seem helpful, but they're really using you. You'll wind up doing all the work or cleaning up after they screw up. Beware of extremely ambitious and unpleasant coworkers.
