On August 27, Jupiter in Pisces forms a sextile aspect with Saturn in Sagittarius! Both planets will be at 21’11, suggesting that you will find balance through separating the tasks at hand to be tackled independently of each other, thus helping you move forward in your career goals with greater confidence in your personal abilities to “achieve your dreams!” Wow! A sextile is formed when two planets are 60 degrees apart, and creates a harmonious energy, one of “coming together,” of an opportunity being presented. The tarot cards for Jupiter and Saturn are X – The Wheel of Fortune and XXI – The World, suggesting one season coming to an end and you stepping forth into a new cycle, finding a new balance, and with a refreshed perspective on just how “time” works — not to mention how to more effectively use it in your favour. Yes, what you started at the beginning of the summer has come full circle, and you are ready to claim your reward! At this point it may be more “spiritual” than material, but it’s built on a strong enough foundation that in Time (!) you will be roaring your success, wiser and clearer on how to present your thoughts to be well-received, and to earn the recognition you deserve. But at this point, that is not what it’s about for you: you’re loving watching just how far You can take this, allowing yourself to blossom, putting yourself “out there” with nothing to hide — it feels great! More opportunities to act on this are here and ready to be found!
The following reading is drawn from the Art of Life Tarot, Astrological Oracle Cards, and the Impressionist Tarot, and looks at how to make the best use of the energies surrounding Jupiter sextile Saturn. This one-card reading is an example of what’s included with the $65 Angular Aspect Effect Readings tier, one of the monthly tarotscope subscription packages available on my Patreon page. This includes one-card readings like the one below when two planets form an aspect to each other, 3-card readings when planets go retrograde or direct, one-card readings when planets change signs, 3-card readings at the New and Full Moons, a 5-card reading when the Sun sign changes, and a one-card monthly kick-off reading! For this reading, I laid out citrine for increased abundance, aventurine for heart-centredness, carnelian for creativity, amethyst for connection with your intuition, snowflake obsidian for protection of your new patterns, blue lace agate for clear self-expression, and tree/dendritic agate for positive growth of your new personal structures.
Jupiter sextile Saturn finds you really willing to do the necessary work to release yourself from the past issues still causing you pain — you are finally ready to let go, and you are ready to use the inspiration you received at the bottom of that past “pit of despair” to your advantage, to create beauty out of ugliness. You have learned to see positives for what they’re worth, able to stand tall and manage your responsibilities even during the off-times when it feels like your “team” has deserted you — you have found your personal balance and are ready to step forth to create more from the depths of your passionate heart.

Well, hello there Jupiter, front and centre! The “opportunity” to be had in Jupiter sextile Saturn clearly leans further into Jupiter/Pisces territory — you’ve been acting on pure intuition, and truly, it is guiding you to your Fortune. Keep thinking wisely, because you also know that there is a lot more “thinking” to do before your process reaches completion — no fortunes can come to the idle! You are still receiving messages galore, so take the time to “hear” them and keep resting up so you don’t give in to the swelling sense of overwhelm that comes with excitement — your ship is coming in and you’re at the point where you can see it offshore, you can almost taste the object of your fantasies and daydreams! Calm yourself knowing it’s happening, and for now let yourself rest, relax, and mentally prepare for the influx of passion-work approaching your door.
You have decisions to make, and you have the information you need: it’s about deciding who you’re going to “be” in your next chapter, choosing how to make it clear that your vision is all-encompassing, is new and necessary, will nurture a need and will represent a bit of warmth in the world. Know that there shouldn’t be any “major” hiccups at this particular juncture — any additional “pain” you experience at this point is nothing new, and you know how to deal with it. It’s what you’ve been reflecting on the past few months, and the revelations you’ve had have helped immensely, especially in the self-love department: part of your “opportunity” involves simply trusting in your own value, knowing no one can poke holes in your armour unless you let them. Harsh? Maybe so, but you have earned your warrior-badge for the challenges you’ve overcome, and you can welcome in the good new things that “releasing” those old hurts now allows!
