Tarot for the Month of September 2020

How will September unfold, in your life, and on the world stage? Tarot professionals Katie-Ellen Hazeldine in Great Britain and Kyra Oser in the United States and Canada look at the cards.

Katie-Ellen Hazeldine – Nine of Pentacles (Venus in Virgo)

The Nine of Pentacles (Venus in Virgo) is my focus card for this September, drawn blindly and at random.  I drew other cards too, looking at September in general, and will include those references.

In General

A practical Virgo theme continues. Last month I drew the Ten of Pentacles (Mercury in Virgo) and this month I have drawn the Nine of Pentacles (Venus in Virgo.)

We entered the zodiac sign of Virgo on 23 August and we remain there until the autumn equinox date of 22 September after which we move into Libra territory.

The appearance of the Nine of Pentacles therefore suggests that key developments in September may be clustered around or be concentrated before this turning point of 22 September.

The Nine of Pentacles is in general a strongly positive card of financial independence and self-sufficiency. Whatever we have, however much or little, has been worked for long and hard. This is representing us as individuals, while the garden represents our identification with our nation, its produce, services, its economic well-being, and sense of identity. The Nine of Pentacles is looking to the future, while resting her hand on the fruits of past efforts.

The beauty, health and hospitality industries are specifically associated with this earth card, as are interior design, architecture, financial services, schools, universities; food production and horticulture. All of these, though of course, many other industries besides, will face a major effort this September as they work to recover lost ground.


This is a card of women in power, and individually may refer to Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s new Vice-President. It suggests there is tremendous focus here, and self-discipline; a serious work ethic, though it may be that her greatest gifts are executive rather than presidential.

The Magician reversed has also made an appearance this month, reflecting the inevitable economic recession now impacting so many countries. The Magician  drawn reversed suggests that the pattern of lifting and re-imposing lockdowns will continue for some time to come.

Only time will tell but, globally speaking, my cards suggest an improving picture of recovery over the next twelve quarters, that is to say, over the next three years starting from this September. This recession, whilst very serious, and with likely industry exceptions, e.g., holiday aviation, may prove not be as long lasting in its effects on employment as the banking crash and recession of 2009, though this picture will vary from country to country.

In the UK

In the UK, recovery from recession seems likely to happen during the next 3-6 quarters.

In September, children will be returning to school, and more parents will be returning to work as the government furlough scheme starts drawing to a close. This could prove unsettling and tensions may arise at home, with fresh anxieties and a sense of disorientation, as suggested by the appearance of The Hanged Man, reflecting the effects of the Full Corn Moon on 2 September in dreamy, moody, Neptunian Pisces.

Further localized lockdowns seem highly likely to occur during the foreseeable future, and this could mean until February/March 2021. However the Tarot has not shown me a return to a national blanket lockdown within the UK.

The Nine of Pentacles suggests we navigate this transition, staying focused on the known facts and the immediately available information, taking things one day at a time, focusing only on what is within our direct personal power to control, just as the lady in the Nine of Pentacles controls the bird on her gauntlet. If it gets too much, take a break from social media. What good does it do anyone, all that trolling and shouting and name calling?

Things seem to settle somewhat during the middle two weeks of September, as collectively as well as personally, we start to find a new footing.

At Home

Virgo rules the concept of routines. The return to school is a major milestone in the return to normal routine but frequent handwashing continues more important than ever and may also reduce cases of seasonal flu which also claims many lives each year.

The Nine of Pentacles as a personification of both Demeter, goddess of the harvest, and Vindemiatrix, goddess of the vines, recommends the consumption of more fresh food, and less fast food. Slow cooking, a one- pot meal is easier than some might think, a casserole, a curry, a soup, a stewed fruit dessert. It’s a delicious, nutritious, and seriously budget-friendly way of eating and feeding a family. (The odd glass of wine doesn’t go amiss either, says Vindemiatrix.)


On a personal, romantic level, this card can suggest a relationship where the woman earns more than the man, or if two women live together, there is a marked difference in earnings or seniority. It can mean a mature lady meeting someone new, and it can mean a later pregnancy.

If this lady is looking to meet someone new, she has plenty to offer. What does s/he want or need in return? The Nine of Pentacles has learned self-worth, and often, she has learned it the hard way. She will go it alone if she needs to, and she can make a real success of it too. Timewasters and freeloaders need not apply. She’s already got more than enough to carry, and that means there’s a heck of a lot to lose.

Kyra Oser – Queen of Wands (Reversed)

The tarot card I drew for September is Queen of Wands Reversed. This card features lions facing each other on the back of the Queen’s throne and turned away from one another in the space under the armrests. She holds a sunflower, an image that is repeated beneath the lions on the upper half of her throne. A very alert-looking black cat peers at you (the viewer or querent) while sitting at the Queen’s feet. The sunflower can be a sign of the joy that comes from creative expression. Sunflowers are also referred to by their Latin name, Helianthus Annuus. The word Helianthus contains the name Helios, a crown-wearing Greek God who brought sunshine to the skies while riding a legion of horses. If you draw this card, the sunshine of positivity is or will soon be shining its light onto some aspect of your life. At the same time, the Queen’s black cat helps connect you to your unconscious desires by answering questions and creating changes in your life that bring you closer to the potential of experiencing unlimited joy.

Queen of Wands Reversed highlights self-perception, and encourages confidence, courage, creativity, and optimism. She asks you to take charge, speak up for what you believe in, or connect to projects and ventures that you’re most passionate about. Her cat’s connection to the subconscious mind is a reminder to sometimes share the more vulnerable parts of yourself. Being open about imperfections with people you can trust makes you more relatable and can be healing for yourself and others. You’ll be achieving a more significant state of self-acceptance while helping others to do the same.

In world news, this card in its reversed position is literally a sign of introversion and social distancing, meaning there’s more of that to come. However, this trend is being shown by the cards as a positive development because Queen of Wands Reversed is a sign of beneficial times spent alone. This might be a time when you can get clear on what you want instead of being influenced or distracted by others’ opinions. If you can let go of preconceived notions about how a society “should” be and accept what already is, you’ll have a much happier time in these times. It’s almost like many of us are on a forced meditation retreat, and according to the Queen of Wands Reversed, being indoors and reflecting on life without the usual interruptions is exactly where we’re meant to be.

Overall, this card helps you embrace your inner royal traits such as self-confidence, possibly bringing you into a time when you also become interested in (or continue to be fascinated by!) history or genealogy (by the way, expect fast-moving developments in ancestral testing and groundbreaking archaeological finds this month!) For others, this is an ideal time to take in some art, music or literature while staying at home. However, you choose to spend your days, the Queen of Wands challenges you to enjoy this time of spiritual and creative reconnection. In the long run, the more you improve yourself in solitude, the greater chance you’ll have of helping others enhance their lives when the opportunity arises to be of service.

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” —Henry David Thoreau

    • Sure, Lisa. Your Tarot card for September shows a man laden down with staves/rods/wands with his head bowed, trudging towards a home. This is a classic sign of someone who is hell-bent on paying the rent, paying a mortgage, making enough money to renovate or buy a home – and missing the wood for the trees. You need to offload. Delegate or ditch. You have taken on too much, especially in terms of online time, and need to get real about what serves you, and what does not. The lovely home or apartment (or the necessary roof over your head) isn’t going anywhere. You, however, must look after your peace of mind and physical wellbeing before bricks and mortar, so take a pause, don’t worry too much if things are temporarily all over the place – just make sure you have the right people in place ready to respond when you are ready to state what you want. You’ll get places faster and better if you cut your burdens by half, maybe three quarters.

  1. Good morning and Thank you for these tarot readings.
    I have Venus at 10 Virgo and my Sun at 10 Leo could you tell me what this means for me this month?

    • Your Venus in Virgo in the Sixth House will be triggered much more than your Sun. Though, there is a double whammy here, because as a Leo you also have Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in your Sixth House of mental and physical health. Virgo rules the Sixth House anyway! This is a really important month when you will organise things with a doctor, healer or surgeon in a decisive way. You will finally sort out your food/drink/exercise/sleep. You will also play detective and realise what X has been doing to your mind, body and spirit for such a long time. This is a research month for you. Test and trial will actually be enjoyable and you will get to October feeling as if you have made massive headway with your wellbeing. A new gig, project, role or plan will begin in the third week and be very successful, leading to more of the same in 2021.

  2. Thanks, Katie-Ellen and Kyra, for your wonderful insights into our collective tarot for September … I was wondering if you could please draw a personal card for me for September and offer any thoughts on how best to navigate this new spring month. Much thanks!!!

    • You’re in a situation where group ideas, or the hive mind, will need to be sorted out. When we see a lot of staves/rods/wands together there is an awful lot of debate going on, and usually some opposition. It’s like someone in a political party battling the rest of them, by herself. The irony is that there is such tremendous similarity between your point of view, and theirs (or your point of view, and his or hers, if you are with the group) that the division is pointless. Looking at this card I would say the real problem is that someone who could so easily take up his/her place in the group, is not centred or grounded. This may be for mental health reasons (anxiety, depression, intense emotions) or for physical ones (they are all over the place). So there is a great need for healing here. There is also a great need for communication, of the listening kind. Stretching hands across the great divide is always a good idea. And really, everyone is so similar, intellectually, or in terms of their headspace. This can be fixed with communication; do it before Mercury Retrograde at the very end of the month.

  3. The Magician reversed makes sense to me, here in the US, as everyone I know believes another lockdown in the NC/NJ area is imminent. They are opening up indoor dining and gyms, totally a recipe for disaster.
    If you are drawing cards for the month, would be so kind as to draw one for me?
    Thanks again, Jessica, Katie-Ellen and Kyra.

    • Fortunately you are savvy enough to look after yourself and keep your distance. I agree with you – restaurants, cafes and gyms are a mad idea. You know for yourself you would be far happier at home having soup you made yourself, doing Zoom yoga. Okay, so your card for September is Wheel of Fortune. There are books in each corner, so libraries, publishers, authors, bloggers or websites play their part. Fortuna is random. Every high is a low later on, every low is a high later on. Life has a spinning quality in September. Go with it but don’t get too caught up in it. Let the wheel spin and land you where it will. I think this has a connection with education, academia or publishing, or the people who populate that world. You have to be philosophical and keep your sense of humour when life is like this, and it’s really about the North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius in your horoscope. Enjoy the highs, and know the lows turn into them.

  4. Hi Jessica
    Firstly such a big thank you for all the hard you’ve been putting to help us all keep sane in these very challenging times.
    Would you be kind enough to draw a card for me this month .?
    I feel as though the winds of change just maybe blowing in my favour, after quite a few years of hardship and uncertainty.
    Blessings and thanks

    • Thank you. It’s a pleasure. Okay, your card for September shows two children exchanging cups. You can allow the world of children or teenagers to take place without you interfering and let them get on with it – or decide that you want to be involved. It’s rather like Beatrix Potter with her husband’s nieces and nephews. She entered their world and created Peter Rabbit and friends. There is something enchanting about children and teenagers who have their own reality! It’s up to you to decide what you want to do about that. This makes sense astrologically too as we have Leo (Fifth House) transits now.

  5. Hi Jessica,
    I get a feeling about women in power or women in the news headlines when I glanced at these cards. I can’t explain this! It is just a feeling!
    Can you draw a card for my month ahead please.
    Xxxx Rosie

    • Kamala Harris may very well end up being President. In general, the new economy will be female-driven. It starts in waves, so your psychic ability is telling you the truth. You are seeing 2021. Your month ahead is really about a victory or triumph. A leader with laurels on his crown, is riding among supporters, allies (and perhaps some jealous or mixed-up people) towards a better future. This is your winning project, personal achievement – or that of someone close to you, whose life influences you enormously. Promotion and new roles, goals or gigs often appears when we see the Staves/Rods/Wands laid out like this. Of course you also have a New Moon in Virgo (work) trine Jupiter in Capricorn (success) so that’s a double whammy. Just make sure that the group is really all together and committed.

  6. Hello Jessica..Got really bad news last week, A Foreigner put a claim in against me and he won,A false claim,We can’t believe how much money he got,I don’t think I will be able to renew my insurance for my car in October now,Ior ever with the amount he got..I was thinking of going to the ombudsman around the 17th,new moon,to investigate his claim,but I don’t want more disappointment, Still waiting on my another court case,that’s probably more bad news,unless a miracle can save me..My Gemini mam said mercury retrograde might be my advantage as all paperwork was done on that 2 years ago..Chiron 24 virgo,Jupiter 26 Scorpio, Uranus 23 Capricorn, Mars 23 Leo.. How does this month go for me..Thanks Jessica

    • Okay, so taking the astrology apart, a foreign person is Sagittarius/Ninth House and money is Taurus/Second House. The car is Gemini/Third House. You also have another court case so we have to wonder what is going on here. Would it make you feel better if I told you, that you are in a really long cycle of karma and will both settle up for some old and past life repayments, but also gain from what you should be rewarded by? This goes until January 2022. What you did for others in the past will be repaid and you will be rewarded. What you ‘owe’ must be handed over. Prior incarnations are usually behind this cycle so the foreigner and you have some past life stuff. At the same time, if you think back to 2001 and 1982, what you gave freely will come back to you. So, if you helped out a friend in those years by renting your place to him for a very low amount of money, you’ll be given back to in kind, by January 2022. It’s on that level.

  7. Dear Jessica,

    Hope everything is going well with you, despite the ongoing weirdness and turbulence, locally and globally – I think we’re all living through “interesting times”, as the old Chinese saying has it!
    I wonder if you could draw a card for me for September, please? I’m wondering in general what to expect in the month ahead, and particularly about the effects of Mars Retrograde and Chiron in Aries, especially as I have a stellium in Libra – Pars Fortuna at 5 degrees; Mars at 12 degrees; Pluto at 14 degrees; and Venus at 16 degrees.
    Thank you in advance. Stay safe, well and sane!

    Lots of love, light and blessings,

    • Thank you Angelina. In general, the Libra-Aries axis of your chart is a stretch from late September to November, as you also have Mercury Retrograde in Libra entering your Seventh House. Life with/for your former, current or potential partner is not straightforward and you may prefer to delay big decisions or action plans until you go into late November/December/Christmas. Having Mercury Retrograde move into your Seventh House is like receiving a random guest into your bedroom who makes the bed, unmakes the bed, makes the bed…Your Tarot card for September is Queen of Swords. ‘This far and no further’ is her message. This is probably you, although I have no chart here to see, so I can’t tell. If it’s not you, then this imposing, dignified, intimidating, powerful, strong woman is perhaps your boss, colleague, friend, mother, partner. The Queen of Swords preserves boundaries and that saves her time and protects her. If this is you, ask yourself about the myriad ways you can do this. Perhaps the way it’s done now is not the most efficient or useful. There is also a family tree reconstruction taking place.

  8. Dear Jessica,
    I bought my first tarot card deck – Smith Waite Centennial Edition of course, following your guidance. I also bought the tarot spread book by Liz Dean to begin somewhere – The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Spreads: Reveal the Answer to Every Question About Work, Home, Fortune, and Love.
    I was wondering if you could suggest 2 books to me as I begin this journey – one for tarot, and one for astrology that can help me put the two together somehow/ someday. I hope to because astrology resonates with me more. I’ve also often felt my Ascendant (with the triple conjunction and the large part of my chart residing b/w 25-29) impacts me as much as my Sun sign. So I am curious to learn a school that uses both.
    Ex. the 12 Jan 2020 Saturn Pluto conjunction was a very potent one for me, but about my brother and our relationship entirely (Libra ascendant).
    Given my admiration for your gift, I would be appreciated if you could suggest these books. (P.S I am a good reader but have difficulty trying to listen to podcasts/ watch videos.)
    Wishing you joy and peace and company in lockdown times. Regards

    • Thanks very much for your kind comments. Okay, so you are off to a good start with Pamela and Arthur’s cards and you have some good spreads there to work with, thanks to Liz Dean. You need a simple book of astrology to help with your Tarot. What you need is a way to decode astrology symbols. The signs and the planets. (Pamela put them into her cards). Buy Parker’s Astrology (DK) by Derek and Julia Parker. It is magnificent. Just work with that and the cards, testing yourself, until you get the hang of it. You won’t need anything else. Use the guidebooks that come with your membership here, too.

    • Sure. Your Tarot card for September is the Three of Cups. A celebration with friends is more than it appears. You all have rich resources – money, possessions, plans, objects to work with and store for the future. In fact what you all have around you is just waiting to be used for tomorrow and could be the start of something big. You are all quite different people but your charts agree with each other. Good chemistry. Happy times. This is really like Bananarama or the Go-Go’s, the Supremes or the Slits having a champagne moment or a beer moment, then realising that they have more songs in the vault.

  9. Oops forgot to mention that sun is 14°20′ Sagittarius, rising is 18°26′ Gemini, and moon is 19°45′ Sagittarius. Hoping to leave the past behind in love and career and venture forth into new adventures??!?

  10. Dear Jessica,
    Can you draw a card for me? Thank you very much! Will there be light out of this tunnel of darkness 2020… Around my home in USA are woods and in the woods a lot of deer and owls and a lots of colibri (hummingbird) on my balcony playing in my flowers So I Thank God Holly Mighty for the woods as I walk the trail stating this month..

    Thank You Jessica

    • Walking is a wonderful thing. Did you know that grounding/earthing/feet on the grass is proven to help with mental and physical health? It’s very interesting. Take your shoes off next time or just lie on the ground. There is a film on YouTube called ‘Kiss the Ground’ with over one million views. It’s called ‘The Earthing Movie’ and is fascinating. Your Tarot card for September is hidden in my other reply to you, on The Full Corn Moon in Pisces feature. Thank you.

    • Sure. Your Tarot card for September is the Ace of Cups. This is a splendid new beginning, rather like something or someone being Christened, or conceived. It is emotionally fulfilling for you, solid gold, precious and should be trusted and taken. In other words, it’s just a vision or possibility until you make it real, but if you are determined, you will bring this event, situation, person or group into your life. There is a hint of 2021 growth involving a group, circle, community, team, club or association in the background. That would grow and grow like Topsy for you. Think about it.

  11. Hullo Jessica,
    Please draw a card for me for the month if September. I used to read tarot cards easily now I’ve lost my touch. Thank you and keep up the good work. Blessed be. Ms H

    • Your Tarot card for September shows the examination of an idea – a high-potential good idea – but a reluctance or inability to do anything practical about it. This may be you, or a person who matters in your life. The admiration of something so promising is quite understandable, but success is not only inspiration but perspiration, and nothing that really works in this world happens because of procrastination. Move this thing. Put it with people, and in a place, where you know it can thrive (as much as you know anything can thrive!) If this is not you, then someone needs encouragement and help. Out of the goodness of your heart, or perhaps because you would benefit from his/her success long-term.
