Holy heat wave, here in northern California! Check out the photo of the September 1st sunrise above; can't you feel the 108-degree temps on offer? Meanwhile, back in my native state of NY, they've gotten their first frost warning! How is your internal climate fairing amidst external extremes?
This month's cards ask us to truly know ourselves, and then to trust ourselves. When are
you being pulled into other's dramas? When are you wrapped up in what others receive? Come back to yourself each time and call upon your ancestral strength. Drink some water and remember the cooler times coming.
I am looking for a new spot to hold my Tarot Tuesday drop-in readings. Jupiter Moon will soon be closing its doors. I am deeply grateful for the owner, Marie, the space she offered to us and all the beautiful connections I made at the back table with those of you who came in! <3

You'll find your card revealed, with my interpretation at the close of this newsletter.
Pause and breathe. Have you chosen your card for the September forecast? Do so now, before scrolling any further.
All 3 cards will provide insight for the month. The card you chose will be especially potent.
Card 1: Nine of Stones - Tradition Gather your sacred tools, whether they are literal objects or skills you have well learned, and reacquaint yourself with the practices that remind you who you are at a fundamental level. This might be a tradition you grew up in, as a child, or it may be one you learned as an adult. It might be a combination of many different practices that you've culled together to suit your unique needs and essence. Whatever they are, you know them and now is the time to once again put them to use. The better you understand yourself, the better your inner stability for any outer disturbances. Notice the stones in a semi-circle behind the figure in this card. Call in the energy of those who give you support without clouding your own mind. They are there, at a distance. When things start to feel overheated, you will have the lessons you taught yourself to pull from and cool off with.
Card 2: Eight of Arrows - Struggle Your personal light shines and guides your way even if the path feels tiring and you feel like just lying down and taking a nap. Whatever you are struggling with, trust in yourself - trust that you know what is right for you. Trust that you have the strength to make it through. You've got a flame that can't be extinguished. Yes, it's a cliche, but this too shall pass and you'll be on the other side wondering why you ever doubted yourself. You might even find the opportunity to enjoy the struggle in a certain way; if life were always easy and pain-free it would probably be pretty boring. There is pleasure to be had in encouraging yourself and witnessing your own determination to overcome.
Card 3: Three of Arrows - Jealousy It's fun to have your heart set aflame in a certain way, but beware how you direct that fire. Are you unnecessarily torturing yourself with thoughts about what others receive, how they receive it, when they receive it? If you feel distrustful and ill-at-ease, have a conversation about it. Place a cool, wet towel on the back of your neck and the front of your forehead. Breathe low in your belly. Count your blessings. Things really aren't quite as you imagine. Let your heart be aflame with passion and creativity rather than anger, envy and fear. It's a practice. Keep practicing.
