The tarot reading for September is full of good news; the first time we've seen a reading like this in months! The tarot cards are clear about one thing, this month is all about action and taking responsbility. If you keep your focus on the tasks at hand and go crossing them out, one by one, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you are able to accomplish this month. The dominant presence of the coins, or pentacles, reveals that the area where we're most apt to move forward this month is in the physical, material world: our job, projects, finances and earthly expansion. Let's take a look at the wisdom this month's tarot reading brings.

The tarot spread begins with the Four of Coins in the position of the current situation. We're beginning September 1st on solid footing with the number four. We've put in the work over the last few months to sort out what serves us and what we can leave behind, providing a solid base on which we can continue to build. The coins are generally related to material matters and practical practices within our life with the intention of being expansive and channeling our energy toward laying the foundation of our dreams while we're here. This card does indicate that we're starting from a favorable position, with a fairly firm financial base, so now we need to focus on maintaining that footing. These efforts must go beyond the material into the social aspect of abundance. We have the ability to build stronger relationships and expand our realm of influence, hopefully in a positive way. While we're occupied with our growing prosperity, we must not forget to balance those material desires with our spiritual growth as well. Money is energy so don't be stingy, be generous with your energetic flow and you will see how it comes right back to you multiplied.
On the surface this tarot spread may seem contradictory, however we must remember the dual nature of reality. While we see flow in the material world, it's also not so surprising to see that's where the challenge lies as well. Here it's going to require extra effort on our part to focus on our goals and put in the hard work to achieve them. This will entail going beyond what's expected of you this month. If you want to stand out, you need to go the extra mile and pick up a few skills that can take your professional endeavors to the next level. Seek out that which can enrich your practice and don't shy away even if it seems daunting at first. Step by step the apprentice becomes the master with the steady application of what's been learned. Throw yourself all in; don't be afraid of failure. The only true failure is not having tried. This challenge is relatively easy to overcome this month when compared to some of the cards over the past few months so let's put it in a word of gratitude as we continue on our journey.
Wouldn't it be nice to have the assurance that all of our projects will be a resounding success even before beginning? Sure it would, however I can't think of a more boring plotline. That same absence of a guarantee is what shapes us through the challenges. We learn to think on our feet, adapt, create and find solutions. The tarot cards this month are all about expressing the idea that you reap what you sow. Make sure you have quality seeds, water them and care for them as needed and that dilligence will reflect the juicy and flavorful fruits of your labor when it's time for harvest. Take it one day at a time and even spend a few moments dreaming about what the next tier of your plan looks like. If you put the effort in, you'll be impressed at what you've been able to accomplish when the fruits are ready to be picked from the vine.
The tarot prediction brings us a piece of important advice for the month, go by the book. There are times when we can inject our surroundings with creativity and innovation and there are times when we would do better to follow the rules. The latter is what reigns supreme this month. It may feel like a bit of a burden or a fine line between servitude and captivity but sometimes that's the sacrifice we need to make to move forward with our macro goals. Don't steer off the beaten path this month as your alternative way of thinking may not give you the results you had hoped for. Life moves in cycles so there will be a time to march by the beat of your own drum in another moment, but for now, stick close to the institutional way of doing things to maximize your possibilities for advancement.
The last tarot card is a wonderful parallel to the way we began the month, with the Four of Coins. This four, however, is on an even bigger scale as we look to the Emperor we're able to embody be the end of September. This card denotes responsibility, security, leadership and benevolence. Associated with the ram, Aries and the ideal father archetype, we can feel especially empowered as we achieve our goals this month through our own responsibilty and diligence. We are up to the task and from here we're on the up and up as our focus nurtures and expands our material goals and the way we express this responsibility in the world. This is a card of action and movement and that's exactly where we're headed in September as long as we keep moving down our checklist toward our goals! Let's get to it!
