Tarotscopes – October 2017
Queen of Cups reversed + The Fool
Do you have a difficulty trusting what you feel and sense?
Do you tell yourself it’s nonsense or foolish, that you must be imagining things?
It’s time to trust your intuition and your feelings more often, especially during this month.
Allow yourself to become more connected with your feelings when it comes to places, people and situations.
Go with your gut reaction as it will be more true and honest to you. Otherwise you may feel you could regret something if you ignore your initial feelings.
Your intuition will guide you to take the right steps and chances, so trust how you feel.
6 of Wands reversed + King of Wands reversed
You may feel you aren’t getting the praise or recognition that you feel you deserve for your work and efforts.
In fact, you may feel that people may point out every minor mistake you make even if they are minor errors that rarely happen.
“When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.” – quote from the TV show Futurama.
Try to keep your composure as it may be too easy to get upset and point out how other people have made other mistakes (but seem to go unchecked, are not reprimanded or unnoticed.)
It won’t be easy to take the criticism and feel unrecognized, but it might just mean that more work, effort and energy will have to be put into future tasks and projects to get praise and rewards.
The High Priest + The Lovers
This month may focus around marriage, common-law or relationships that are deeply committed.
This could also suggest that there may be weddings or legal union ceremonies to celebrate commitments and love.
Relationships may be harmonious and unified during this month that could involve perhaps anniversaries, renewal of vows or other ceremonies or occasions.
This month could also suggest (if not in a relationship perhaps) that traditional teachings, pursuing education in a subject that you love or even merging or studying two different subjects at once.
This could be for example pursuing a degree at university with a major and minor that are vastly different or learning two subjects that are unique opposite or different.
Go after what you love, perhaps exploring a more traditional manner and method.
5 of Cups + 8 of Cups
There may be a disappointing event in which you may eventually feel that you have to move on from.
This could be the end of a relationship or something aspired to which didn’t work out the way as hoped for.
There may be sadness in having to decide to move on from something or leave something behind, but you may realise it wasn’t meant to be.
This could also suggest moving away and leaving people behind which could also be a sad moment, but something that may need to be done.
The 8 of Cups not only leaves something behind, but goes in search of something else.
Goodbyes are always the hardest, but often are necessary.
Queen of Swords reversed + 10 of Cups
Sometimes the Queen of Swords has to be the “bitch” or “the mean one”, but it’s only because she has to be the one to make the tough choices and decision to get stuff done.
You may have to be strict at home or work, which your words or decisions may not be favourable, but will likely be the right thing to do.
This could mean saying “no” to the kids, spouse/partner, boss, co-worker, etc., because you feel it’s the right thing to do for you at this time.
You’ll also be the one to keep on top of schedules, appointments, meetings, etc. and keeping everything in order on the home front and on the job.
Sometimes you have to be the strict one to keep everything working and running smoothly, to be on time and organized.
Just keep in mind to not be too hard on yourself and on others in the process.
2 of Cups reversed + The Empress reversed
There may be stress in a relationship, possibly dealing with a mother-figure or step-mother figure.
This could even perhaps be if you are the mother or step-mother and having difficulties with something in a relationship.
There could be difficulties seeing eye-to-eye with someone that you are close with, possibly within the family dynamic, possibly even a partner.
You may feel blocked in some way and feel at a loss.
You may want to “mother” someone or take on the role, yet this could turn the other way, and leave you feeling cold and distant.
A lot of your focus and attention may be on your partner’s concern or the concerns of someone close to you, which may leave you feeling is if you’re not getting anything in return.
Try to take time to care for yourself. It’s OK if you need time for yourself.
3 of Swords + 10 of Wands reversed
There may be heavy burdens and even disappointment this month. You may have to decide how much you can take and what you have to put aside.
Something may be too much to handle at this time.
There could be news or information that comes your way which may add extra responsibilities or burdens.
It may hit a painful spot or pull at the heartstrings, but again, you’ll have to decide what to hold onto and what to let go of; otherwise it may only cause more pain and add weight on your shoulders.
Remember you don’t have to do this alone.
Rely on someone close to you who can help take on some of the responsibilities or burdens that may be weighing you down.
4 of Cups + 5 of Pentacles
There may be a rough patch to go through this month in terms of work, money and family. However, you may start to feel indifferent to it all.
Try not to become to detached from your situation(s) that you become lethargic or apathetic.
You may feel “what’s the point?” during this time, but try not to get further into despair or feeling like everything is getting worse.
Try to find ways to bounce back to avoid seeing only the negative side.
Your initial reaction to hard times may be to withdraw and pull away from other people and responsibilities. It’s OK to take time to yourself and be in the moment, but try not to dwell there for too long.
The longer you remain detached and distant, the harder it can be to climb back out.
Feel all the feels (or lack of them), but try to do something that makes you happy.
Death + Temperance reversed
This marks a change and transformation in your life. There’s a need to get rid of the old ways or whatever is not working for you and look to try something new.
However, to do so, you may feel there’s resistance within you and the changes that are happening may cause frustrations and may upset you.
Try to balance the different elements and parts of yourself as there may be an imbalance in your life.
There may be a certain area of your life that is overactive and other aspects that are neglected.
There’s changes that are happening that may shift to try to bring balance and tranquility back into your life.
Try not to become overly frustrated with the changes that are happening and allow transformation to happen.
Endings may be occurring, but in its wake will bring new beginnings.
King of Cups + Knight of Swords
You may feel in charge of your feelings and emotions one minute then the next, ready to tell everyone how you really feel.
However, using the energy of the Knight of Swords, you can likely articulate very well how you feel and express yourself thoroughly through words and writing.
You’ll be able to add depth to your communication and your feelings of empathy will run deep, even if you don’t quite let others know it.
You may feel very deeply about others and what’s happening, but you won’t be overrun with emotions, rather you’ll feel ready to take action about it. Feelings will fuel action.
Communication and writing skills will be excellent this month as ideas and thoughts will come quickly, while deep feelings and understanding of human emotion will fuel creative expression.
5 of Wands + Page of Wands reversed
This month, there may be a few projects on the go which may require multi-tasking. However, you may feel as though you’re jumping from one to the other, uncertain if any of them will be completed on time or at all.
Be careful not to take on more than you can handle this month.
If working with other people, there may be minor conflicts, scheduling difficulties or simply everyone isn’t on the same page.
Energy may be scattered, but you may have the fire to get down to work.
Caution should be made that you don’t fizzle out or lose interest before the project deadlines.
Try to limit your projects to only a few or only take on what you know you can handle and what you know you can do well.
If you feel a certain task or project won’t be worth your time or energy or may cause more grief than reward, it may be best to decline and move on to the next.
6 of Cups + 7 of Pentacles
You may be waiting on something or someone from the past or even the recent past during this month.
This could be waiting on an investment or money from a relative or sibling that you hope may come through.
As the days get close to Samhain / Halloween, you may begin to reflect on the past 12 months and review your growth as we get closer to the end of the calendar year. This could suggest taking a break to reflect and bring up memories.
This could suggest a review, assessment of the past, which could be job performance, wealth investments or planning future investments based on past returns and history.
If you’ve done some work earlier this year, you may be waiting to see a return or reward for it or waiting to hear about it soon. Something may soon pay off, which you may possibly receive payment for work done in the past or money owed.
