October 2018 Tarotscope
Welcome to October!
Here we are at the 10th month of the year. When we look at numerology, the 10 is usually an ending of a particular cycle or chapter. The 10s in the major arcana would be the Wheel of Fortune and the Sun (1+9).
So how does this work when there are still 2 months to go? Well I see it that we have all been working really hard this year. Maybe October is the final push and we can take things a bit easier, or even start new projects in November/December.
That Wheel of Fortune is there to remind us that life is cyclical. We just have to ride the waves and try to enjoy the journey. The Sun shows that there is potential for us to have a really great month. Sometimes we just need to cast off all the clutter and baggage that we gather and have a good time!
Have a look and see what’s in store for you this month.

March 21 – April 19
4 of Pentacles
You are stuck on the 4s my Aries friends. This is the third month in a row that you have had a 4 come up. Fours in tarot can be great as they are very stable and secure. However, it might be time for you to start thinking about moving on. What’s holding you back from moving to the 5? Are you getting too comfortable? Perhaps you are scared of change. The 4 of Pentacles show financial stability and security. This could be a good month for getting your finances in order. Perhaps you are setting yourself up for the holiday season (which can be very expensive). Security is wonderful but you just have to be careful that you are not shutting yourself off. Look at that pentacle right across the heart. Be sure to keep an open heart whilst getting your finances in order.
April 20 – May 20
8 of Swords (reversed)
This could well be the month when you start to feel change. All those obstacles and negative thoughts are going to drip away, one at a time. The path will become much clearer but you have to remember that you are the one who has the power to remove the blindfold. Don’t wait for a completely clear path or you will be waiting forever. Obstacles are challenging but they are also good for us. We learn from mistakes and they often guide us to the best outcome. Now that conditions are looking better I urge you to start moving forward. Cast off the doubts, build some internal courage and get ready to spread your wings!
May 21 – June 20
10 of Swords (reversed)
Did you enjoy your time in the sun last month? The great news is that you are still evolving and growing. We all know that change can be challenging and painful. Sometimes we need to just muster that courage to put and end to what is not serving us. Get rid of the toxic – relationships, patters, habits etc. You are making such great progress and the pain will ease. This reversed card will see the swords fall away one at a time. Yes, you may be left with scars and wounds but they will heal in time and they will remind us to never make the same mistakes again. It’s time for a new start. You have made the decision to move on. Just know that the healing process is underway and you will be back on your feet in no time at all.
June 21 – July 22
This is an interesting card. It’s not always about love (although it can be). This can also be a card about choices. We see Adam and Eve depicted. Are you going to give in to temptation and bite the apple? We are faced with temptations at every turn of life. What we need to remember is that we have a choice. No matter how strong that urge is, you still have a choice. This card is very similar to the Devil card which shows that there is a fine line between light and darkness. You may be faced by some tough choices this month but you are being watched over and if you find some faith you will make the right choice.
July 23 – August 22
King of Pentacles (reversed)
Get your finances in order! We were reminded to throw ourselves into a new project last month. Now it’s time to do the due diligence and ensure that we are following the rules. It’s fine to work things out along the way but burying your head in the sand is not the answer. Maybe you need to seek the help of a professional? Perhaps at work you are needing to find a mentor. There is a lot of knowledge around you. You may not be the smartest person in the room but you won’t go wrong if you know when to ask for help from people who are smarter than you. It’s not the most exciting but this it the time to channel your inner ‘boss’ and get down the business.
August 23 – September 22
There is a real theme of courage and inner-strength this month. Remember that being strong doesn’t mean being aggressive. You can win and succeed whilst remaining soft at the same time. You have the power to overcome that lion but you are not going to be able to do it through force. Sometimes getting to know your adversaries and making friends with them can get better results. There is a real feminine energy when it comes to the strength card. This is a great month to muster than inner-strength and go out there to achieve whatever you want. You are much stronger than you think and you could find that others underestimate you. It could be a really good month for you but don’t hold back.
September 23 – October 22
The Hanged Man
This is a great month to take some time out. You might need to take some time to see things from a different angle. There are times in life when we need to take action but there are times when we need to sit still. If we create the space, it’s amazing what can come to us. It’s no coincidence that the best ideas come to us when we are in the shower. It’s because there are no distractions and we finally have some silence that gives us the clarity we need. This would be a great month to do yoga, meditation, walks on the beach etc. Anything that brings peace. Don’t force anything this month. You will find that you still move forward but you will do it with much more ease. You don’t always have to be fighting to get ahead.
October 23 – November 21
The Magician (reversed)
You had the Ace of Swords last month, which was all about new ideas and beginnings. I feel like we have hit a bit of a bump in the road. Are you starting to doubt yourself? When I see the Magician reversed I feel that you have all the skills and tools to do really well. However, that element of doubt is holding you back. You sometimes have to really believe in yourself to get you over that hurdle. Focus on the goal. Really visualise yourself reaching the successful ending and go for it. We all suffer from this self-sabotage or self-limiting beliefs but the tarot is telling you that you are good enough. What’s the worst that can happen? If you flop at least you will have learned some valuable lessons and it means you are much more likely to succeed next time. Go for it!
November 22 – December 21
You are experiencing some serious growth at the moment. You had the 3 of Wands last month. The Empress is also a 3 and can represent growth. This is a more important lesson that last month as it’s part of the major arcana. This could be a great month for you. Conditions are looking great. Things are flowing and the Universe most definitely has your back. The biggest message here is the enjoy it. Knowing who you are is one of the greatest lessons in life. It looks like you are finally at peace with who you are and you are prepared to let the world know. I see a real rise in confidence in you this month. The amazing thing is that you will notice that everything starts to go your way once you surrender and tell yourself that you are good enough. Embrace this feminine energy and you will have a great month.
December 22 – January 19
6 of Pentacle (reversed)
You are coming from a good place and have good intentions, however, the execution needs work. Are you feeling very generous and really want to help others this month? You just have to be careful that you are in a position to help others before you jump in. This card can represent charity and kindness. When it’s reversed it can show others taking advantage. It can also be a sign that the balance is off and you are giving away too much. This isn’t always about money. It could be time, resources or it could be money. Go to that analogy of the airplane where you are reminded to help yourself before you help others. Keep your good intentions but just be mindful that the scales are not tipping too far in the wrong direction.
January 20 – February 18
5 of Wands
It’s time to get organised. Are there too many cooks? It looks like everybody has good intentions and they are coming from a place of passion. However, the lack of leadership is causing challenges, to say the least. A natural leader has to rise up and it could well be you. I also sometimes see this card as having too much clutter in your life. Take a minute to get yourself organise and plan. We have all been there where we want to do everything at once. It’s just not possible. Do one thing well at a time and soon you will be moving forward with ease. It’s a month for leadership and organisation.
February 19 – March 20
10 of Cups
How lovely to be a Pisces this month! Your month will be full of rainbows, family and happiness! It doesn’t get much better than the 10 of Cups, which is seen as the ‘happy ever after’ card. We have to be mindful that a 10 is the end of a cycle. Enjoy this moment of happiness and make the most of it. You also need to keep an eye on what’s next. You have reached a successful ending of this chapter and you want to build on this happiness. Don’t worry. Starting anew can be exciting and very rewarding. Conditions are looking excellent for you to have a really great month. You deserve it my Pisces friend! Enjoy. x
Have a great month. xox
