So here we are, already in August. The sun is setting earlier and even though it's still summer hints of fall are in the air. Do you feel them? As we enjoy the harvest of summer, I invite you to bring your awareness to the shift of seasons, savoring the warm end of summer and welcoming in the cool of autumn. Breathe calmly and deeply, noticing how the two seasons mix in-and-outside of you.
Below you will find your free August tarot forecast. Center yourself, look at the picture and choose 1, 2, or 3 from left to right. Later on in this newsletter, you'll find your card revealed and its interpretation.

Special Full Moon Offering
This month, on Thursday August 18th, we will have a full moon, which is known by a few names, but the one I like best is Green Corn Moon.
Under this moon, I will go out into nature, wherever I am called - the forest, the beach, a lake - we will see where nature wants me! You can energetically join me by signing up to be part of a group Full Moon Reading.
For this reading, I'll send you a meditation to do on the night of the full moon, so we can all be communing together. I'll hold space for all of us and pull one or two cards for healing of the whole group. Then individual cards will be pulled for each one who signs up. My sense is that there is a lot of anxiety that needs releasing and so I will be focusing on how each one can best come into a more peaceful, aligned head-and-heart space. When you sign up, you are invited to tell me about any specific topic or anxiety you'd like help with and I will give it extra attention.
After the night of the full moon, you'll receive pictures of your individual and group cards, along with any hand written notes I took, pictures of the setting in which I read, and of course, my interpretations of the cards pulled. These will be delivered to your inbox no later than the evening of Monday, August 22nd.
Yes - let's make magic together! Cost is by donation, starting at $25. If you can offer more to help cover someone who cannot, help a human out, won't you?
Ready to sign up? Send your donation via this link: paypal.me/InfinityTreeTarot You'll receive confirmation and communication from me shortly thereafter. (P.S. If you're local and want to donate in person, that's cool too - email me to arrange.)

August Tarot Forecast
Card 1: 7 of Swords. As you make your way through August, there may be a situation that no longer feels right or comfortable. It's time to make an exit, but be careful not to burn any bridges as you go. A quiet, almost under-the-radar, movement is what is called for. As you're packing up, literally or metaphorically, take only what is yours, leaving behind what doesn't belong to you and what doesn't serve you. Exit quickly and quietly, but without any sneaky dishonesty.
Card 2: 10 of Swords. Yeah, something is good and over. And it probably hurts quite a lot. No need to deny your pain. Feel it out. No need to wallow in it unnecessarily though, either. Take a look at that card again and notice that there is a dawn behind those swords. This might really suck, but new things grow out of it. Know yourself well and find the right line between feeling pain and grief fully versus holding onto it too tightly, like a security blanket. Also, be aware if you are afraid to let go and desperately holding on to something that, in your heart of hearts, you know to be finished. Clinging will only weaken you and increase the pain. <3 <3 <3
Card 3: 6 of Swords. Time for a journey, with purpose. This is a card of "I must go," not "I want to go." You will likely be traveling (can be a internal journey) perhaps for school, work, family obligations, even a funeral is possible. As you journey, it's important to stay grounded and feel your connection to the earth, the soil. Logic and necessity floating over an ocean of emotion call for you to feel your roots in the earth, in order to balance out. Progress is being made.
Overall: Whoa, a theme of endings and moving on. Swords are of the air element and involve mental activity & logic, but also anxiety and cutting (cutting out, cutting remarks, cutting away the old, etc.) This is completely necessary but might also be upsetting and painful. Trust in yourself and trust in the cyclical nature of time.
