October Monthly Tarot Forecast

 

Current Overview of the Month

 
 
Justice Reversed
 
Well, we just got the same card as last month for the Overview. That's certainly against the odds isn't it? Two months in a row, the same card out of 156 options. Hhmm. We have also officially entered Libra season, as associated with this card. It could indicate that the month may be challenging regarding keeping things balanced. We might still be working on fairness and partnership, especially with a FULL MOON in Aries on Oct.5th basically shouting "Me! Me! Me!". Keep at it.
 
When the Justice card comes up reversed, I always get the sense that Justice will not be served. It's never really an indication of whether or not things will go our way, it's more a feeling that they won't, when they should, or they will, when we know inside, they really shouldn't. Be careful where you find yourself on this issue.
 
We can feel that things have turned out unfairly or that we were cheated in some way. But this card can also indicate when things are out of balance. We have a lot going on and are having a hard time getting it all done, or all worked out. It's also representative of the air sign, Libra, and since we are now well into Libra season, it could simply be letting us know we have some challenges. There are a few powerful astrology aspects going on this month.

 
 

Challenges or Obstacles this Month

 
 

Ten of Swords
 
I think in many ways, we are going to feel like it's over before we even get started, like we're cooked. Time to give up, surrender, throw in the towel! Why bother anyway! As this card shows, we are definitely dealing with rock bottom on some things. But of course coming out of this Pluto transit, we know there are things that we are being forced to let go of and deal with, if we didn't work on it during the retrograde process. Pluto brings purging. And while it can be ever-so-painful in the moment, it is cathartic, cleansing and purifying as well. Truly transformative. So think about what you need to acknowledge as truly over and purge from your life.

 
 

Action and Advice to Heed This Month

 
 

Eight of Cups Reversed
 
This tells us that we still have options left. That it is not time to walk away completely. There may be things that you need to address, redo or re-structure, but in the reversed Eight of Cups, the message is that it is not time to give up and walk away. There is still work to do. I personally find this card to have an element of Hope to it. It tells us that our situation still has life left in it. Your next task is to determine what it is you TRULY want so that you can hone in on that. Once you know, you may then decide to move on after all, if it's not what you currently have. But until you know, you don't really know where you are going anyway. Don't decide or judge options by your rational mind. You are being called to use your heart and go with your gut.

 
 

Recap

 
 

Final note….I think we are going to feel like we are getting screwed over and our goose is cooked. We could possibly feel dejected and beaten. But we are not. Stay the course. Time to drop the dead weight and focus on what we really truly want. Go get 'em!

      S02 Ep044 Make Your Most Powerful Magic Yet With The Magician

      The magician is aaaaaallllll about making magic. I mean it's in the name right? Now why is he related to this time of year? I have said many times, there are cycles to everything in nature, including us, because of course, we are nature. In nature, we have times of contraction and times of expansion. We see this is our natural world in our earth based nature rhythms too. So that brings us to...Read More »

      S02 Ep043 Capricorn Season, Pentacles and a LAST CALL for those New Year’s Resolutions

      Winter truly is a time of pulling inward. It's a period of contraction. Winter is where we create the space for the amazing seeds we are soon going to plant. This is our period of DEEP REST. I find Capricorn season to represent the true stillness, contraction, and deep rest that winter brings. And knowing these things can help us plan out our time, our projects, and allow us to give ourselves permission to rest. Rest is...Read More »

Join me in this week’s episode to learn how to take advantage of this very auspicious energy right now, including our Sagittarius new moon falling on the 12/12 portal, at which time we also entered the 3rd decan of Sagg, a day before Mercury Retrograde begins- whew!...Read More »

      S02 Ep040 Rituals for Halloween (and beyond!) for Tarot Readers

      Halloween and rituals go hand in hand. Although we have turned Halloween into a night of spooky fun, complete with costumes and candy for children, it is really a special night to honor those who are no longer with us, and based on the much older pagan sabbat of Samhain. It's a great time to communicate with those who have passed over, or any of our spirit guides, as the veil is much thinner not only during Scorpio season in...Read More »

      S02 Ep039 The Death Card: Death and Rebirth- Letting Go During Scorpio Season

      Death, rebirth and letting go, these are the themes that let us know that Scorpio season has arrived!​ This is the time of year that we are prime to look into the deepest darkest corners and excavate the things that are no longer serving us. The things that are holding us back. Things that have long outlived their usefulness. Some of these things go all the way back to our childhood,​ and some are just outdated and outworn patterns of...Read More »
