Missed last month's tarotscope? Don't worry, you'll find the last two months here.
Aries: Knight of Wands
Fire your passions, fire your imagination for August. If you’re stuck, get creative, whether it’s drawing on a napkin or humming a song.

Monthly Magic: Write down fears, concerts and times when people scoffed at your ideas in a list. Burn it in a safe space and when cool, wash the ashes down the drain.
Affirmation: My imagination always provides.

This month you are in the centre of everything. Remain stable, stay balanced and trust in your own intuition even if you may be getting pressure otherwise. Stay above it and trust your advice. You are in the perfect place at the perfect time and don’t be surprised when others turn to you for counsel.
