August 23 – September 22

Virgo

by Tarotcom Staff

Virgo rhymes with “Oh no,” which is what you’ll hear them cry when things aren’t perfect. Virgo is a smart and practical Earth sign, ruled by mental Mercury and symbolized by the Virgin — not necessarily because Virgo is prudish, but rather because they are highly discriminating.

Virgo is hardworking, detail-oriented and quite critical, with an uncanny analytical gift for seeing what’s wrong with people, situations and their surrounding environment. This perfectionism makes Virgo valuable to have around, but also sometimes uncomfortable to be around if they turn their critical eye on you.

More than anything, Virgo is a loving, loyal and true friend you can always count on.

What we love about Virgo

You can always count on Virgo to come through for you in a pinch, and they have a surprisingly keen sense of humor.

Why Virgo drives us nuts

Virgo’s perfectionism can sometimes be negative, and it can lead them to become too critical of others. They also have a tendency to be passive-aggressive.

Virgo advice

Loosen up every once in a while. No one is perfect, not even you!

Most compatible matches

Sincere Virgo is a great match for emotional Pisces and like-minded Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn.

Least compatible matches

Earthy, practical Virgo is least compatible with breezy Air signs, including eccentric Aquarius, erratic Gemini and changeable Libra.

People born on the cusp share common traits from two different zodiac signs.

Today's Tarot Card for August 18 is The Hermit

The Hermit

Sunday, Aug 18th, 2013

The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.

While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Sept. 18 is The Hermit

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Hermit

The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can learn or teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid an overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.

Today’s Tarot for July 24 is The Hierophant

The Hierophant

General Meaning:  Traditionally known as the Hierophant, this card refers to a Master and the learning of practical lessons from the study of Natural Law. This energy of this card points to some agent or resource that can reveal the secrets of life, the cycles of the moon and tides, the links between human beings and the heavens.

Because monasteries were the only places a person could learn to read and write in the middle ages, a Hierophant was one to whom a student would petition for entry. He was the one to set the curriculum for the neophyte’s course of study.

Often pictured with the right hand raised in blessing, the Hierophant is linked with the ancient lineage of Melchezidek, initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who passes on the teachings. All shamans of any tradition draw upon this archetype.
