Soul Cards Tarot by Kristine Fredheim

This month includes its fair share of focus on both the material and the mental. To keep us from getting too heady about things, we’re reminded that it’s good to get out and have fun, to enjoy ourselves and live life, even if only to get out of our own heads for a while. We’re being guided to do the inner work, to be sure, which comes in the form of being more self-aware, paying attention to our thoughts and choosing ones that are more positive, therefore deliberately improving our vibration. We’re also reminded that we’re powerful, we’re worthy, and we’ve got what it takes to achieve our goals. But it’s also good to have fun along the way—in fact, that might be the most important part. 

Q1: Overall energies of September: Four of Pentacles

The Four of Pentacles brings a stable, grounded influence for September, especially in the areas of home, family, relationships, finances, and career. We may be asked to focus on solutions and imagine ourselves in the better circumstances we desire. Supporting those desires with the belief that we are worthy of living our dreams and fully capable of achieving and realizing them is a powerful aid to our manifestations. The Four of Pentacles says stability is imminent and not only possible, but ready and waiting for us to line up with it and receive it. Believing in our stability and happiness can help shore up our vibration.

Q2: Week 1: Six of Wands

Great expectations… This week, victory is at hand. Small and large gains may come in the form of physical manifestations, ideas (which are also manifestations), or vibrational improvements. Our guidance is to look for and nurture an improved mood and a more positive outlook, and expect good results to come flowing in. We can expect to see positive results. Our expectations are powerful, and when our expectations line up with our beliefs, we are capable of creating any set of circumstances and any manifested reality. A powerful aid this week may be to remind ourselves of good things we’ve already manifested. Expect great things to come to you and they will. 

Q3: Week 2: Five of Pentacles

This card can indicate a turning point or change in our material, physical lives. The guidance this week is to stay focused on the solution and forget about the issues and challenges, as those only hold power when we give our attention to them. What we focus on grows. To allow improvements to enter our lives, we’re being encouraged to spend time visualizing ourselves in the state manifested and to vibrationally line up with the energy of what we wish to create. If we want to experience more wealth, we can find the feeling of abundance on any subject. We may be abundant in a certain area, and finding a feeling of appreciating that abundance can help to grease the wheels on all other subjects and allow more abundance of money, positive relationships, opportunities, and anything else we desire to flow to us. This week, the advice is to focus on what’s working and forget the rest. 

Q4: Week 3: Queen of Swords

This queen is all about the power of the mind and guides us to focus on the positive—what serves us, what we desire, what is good. We may be called to use the power of the mind this week to shift our momentum and get it going in a more positive direction. Once we’re vibing or trending in positive directions, it gets easier to stay on a positive wavelength. From there, we can watch things shift around us for the better. It’s all about the energy we hold and the vibration we are projecting out into the universe. 

The Queen of Pentacles is a non-nonsense, clear thinker who knows her own power and is steady in it. This card can also signify that creative ideas are flowing in now in a most potent way. Pay attention to your ideas this week; write them down, but don’t just let them sit and grow stale. Act on them when you get the notion! There is tremendous power in inspired ideas. They are the gifts of the universe, the seeds that hold within them the possibility of great transformation, ideas that can change the world. 

Q5: Week 4: Seven of Swords

The Seven of Swords can signify a shift in thinking. If we have been doing the vibrational work and ensuring we are vibrationally in a good place, we can expect to see a shift in our thinking, focus, and point of attraction. This card can simply indicate the desire to do so. If we wish it, we can live it; if we dream it, we can do it. What we are being, where we are vibrating, magnetizes similar energies to us, thanks to the law of attraction, which states, that which is like unto itself is drawn. We are what we think; we live what we think. The Seven of Swords may urge us to shift our thinking in ways that benefit us and to think more positive thoughts to get more positive momentum going, which in turn improves our vibration and allows us to receive what we have been asking for. 

Q6: Guidance for September: Three of Cups

There is a celebratory, playful, collaborative energy at hand, ready for us to receive and work with, or rather, to enjoy. Positive collaborations may yield fruitful results, whether creative or professional. Our guidance this month is to have fun, to do things that bring us joy and take our minds off of the mental focus that is so prevalent this month. While it’s good to be aware of our thoughts and make the effort to focus in ways that serve us—which often means deliberately choosing thoughts that are more positive—this card also encourages us to lighten up and do things that give us a sense of lightness, freedom, and buoyancy. In moments of fun and laughter, we open the valve for good things to flow in; in that state, everything we have asked for can come to us. The key is to take our minds off of making something happen, to just have fun and let go, to truly enjoy ourselves in the moment. (Read: Fun is important!)
