October 2017 Tarot Forecast
The saying ‘If at first you don’t succeed then try, try and try again.’ will hold true this month. Don’t be deterred if you seem to fall flat with your big plans. Things do turn around by the second week. New ideas come around and this time you make a dash for things. It does feel that although monetary gain is the initial fundamental reason for your plans be it a new career or business venture, it soon dawns on you that emotional and spiritual fulfilment play an equally important role as well. It’s going to be quite challenging to be able to achieve this balance. It will be a long journey ahead which will leave you feeling weary and wanting to give up. But the key is to remain detached at all times and to accept disappointments as part of this learning journey.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Things come full circle in all areas of your life. Family life seems to be the best it has ever been. You have come a long way facing lots of setbacks and challenges to get to where you are now. So take this time to spend quality time with your loved ones as much as you can. Everything is falling into place after a long wait and relationships in your life have reached an idyllic state. It is a month where all your efforts are finally paying off and you seem to have come to the end of a difficult cycle. The good thing now is you are ready to begin a new chapter in your life.
Year Ahead (October 2017 -September 2018)
It looks like a year of moving ahead and opportunities. Financial worries have been a concern in the past year but you are extremely focused and determined to make sure you put an end to things. You aren’t going to get things sorted overnight so bear in mind that patience and moderation is important. Take small steps and don’t get yourself twisted in a knot because you aren’t seeing results soon enough. You’ve got a year ahead and it looks like things will be unfolding in stages. The second quarter brings good news for the singles. There is a chance of a soulmate meeting or even a proposal. The connection is going to be a karmic one. So expect things to be extremely intense. It’s meant to be and your instincts will just draw you to this person. If a relationship isn’t what you are looking for then you will be meeting someone possibly a business partner that shares your vision or just a friend that you end up having a deep connection with. In any case, the meeting is meant to be and destined. There are past connections attached. By the second half of the year, you will be rather pleased with yourself when you feel you are definitely on to something. The foundation feels solid and you are raring with enthusiasm to make your plans and ideas come alive. It’s a challenge as you need to keep yourself constantly grounded and maintain that energy. Self-doubt will certainly creep in but it’s up to you to keep them out of your mind. Hard work does pay off eventually by the last quarter. Your plans are moving though not at the speed at which you expect it to. But things are happening nevertheless. You may be required to manage your expectations from time to time. So take things as they come and deal with them slowly.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s going to be a keep calm and carry on month ahead where learning a couple of lessons take centrestage. Firstly, the need to be balanced and centred plays a very crucial role when it comes to dealing with people. Conflict is inevitable but they key lies in how the situation is dealt with. You will need to prioritise what is important to you this October, relationships or fighting for what you believe in. The second lesson lies in your ability to leave no stone unturned when it comes to solving issues or getting to the bottom of a situation. Grasping what you are meant to master this month will lead to a positive ending.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
This isn’t the month to try out untested methods when it comes to achieving security, abundance, ambitions or even gaining the trust and confidence from your family or your superiors. It’s best to stick to the status quo and adhere to all rules and regulations, albeit long-winded, but it will deliver the results. Trying to go against this will no doubt leave you in despair. So think carefully before you decide on taking any shortcuts this month.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
You are at a time in your life where your self-confidence is soaring and you never felt more assured of yourself and your abilities. With that in mind, there is also a sense of unfulfillment as you gain awareness that you aren’t really giving your all when it comes to what you are doing. Perhaps it’s time to relook at your skills or look for a change in your career path. It’s a perfect month to reflect on your journey and where your destination should be. It is probably time to get into something that you love to do rather than getting into something as a means to an end.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It is time to mature that thought or idea into a journey this October. While being an action oriented month do expect some bumps in the road which will slow things down. Dilemmas will be rife so be sure to think them through carefully. If you haven’t got enough information at hand to make a decision then hold on till you do. Be emotionally mature with your decision making. Never allow your over enthusiasm to overlook the flaws in your elaborate tapestry. Be precise and meticulous in your journey if you wish to see yourself expanding.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Things revolve around the home this month. You set an ambition to achieve a balance in providing for your family financially as well as emotionally. It’s going to be a tall order to create harmony and stability in all areas within your family. This includes both your partner and children. You do get successful at maintaining this. Being mentally clear of your most important objective will play an essential role this October.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
There is a craving of wanting to go back to a time which is familiar and felt happier. This could be a time in your recent past or a time from your childhood. Things aren’t going particularly well for you this month so some form of escapism will be welcome respite. Allow your intuition and dreams to guide you through your situation. Shifting your perspective might just be the key to getting you out of your circumstance. You are nearly at the end of things. Just persevere a little more. Change your viewpoint and you will probably be directed to a solution.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A month full of changes and new beginnings await. The changes may not materialise physically as yet. But it will require a lot of focus, determination and confidence to pull yourself through this emotionally and mentally trying time. It’s time to acknowledge and let go of what was lost in your past and to start looking ahead of what you still have and make the best of what is left. The first thing to begin with, would be your mindset. Begin to remove the mental limitations that you have put on yourself. Get rid of the veil that you have had all this time and start to view things from a viewpoint of the glass being half full rather than half empty.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You are in search of more spiritually or emotionally fulfilling opportunities in your life this October. You find yourself drifting away from materialism and towards doing something that adds meaning to your existence. In the hope that this will give you more time to spend with your loved ones. You decide not to be a slave to money. The concept of working as a means to an end feels dated and not in line with your beliefs anymore. Seek and you shall receive as the saying goes. All there is left to do is to look at how to make this change. A balance between materialism and emotional fulfillment will be achieved this month.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You do whatever it takes this month to overcome struggle and tension that you have been experiencing for a while. The goal is to achieve financial stability and to reinstate the trustworthiness that you stand for. Your suggestions and ideas may have been viewed as selfish in the eyes of others. It may be an unsuitable time to convince people around you that your intentions are quite the opposite. There is a sense of insecurity hovering over people around you. It’s crucial to be aware of this and get the opinions of everyone around you to make them feel that their views are just as important as yours. As soon as you do this, sentiments will take a turn for the better.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It is time to clear away the old limiting factors that may have been self-imposed to make way for a big change or transformation. Time to get rid of the old unmotivated and discontent you to make way for a confident, self-sufficient, self-motivated and independent you. You don’t have to be bound by your circumstances. Change them to suit you. Pursue your ideas and goals relentlessly. The key is not to let the spark die out. You have to keep the energy going in pursuit of what you feel will bring contentment and satisfaction back into your life again.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Don’t let the eagerness and desire of fulfillment of goals make you a ruthless person this month. Your high levels of optimism and energy provide the drive to go get what you are after. However, compassion and a sense of responsibility towards others must not be ignored. Keeping everyone around you engaged and sharing your creative ideas sets the tone for a more harmonious working environment. Disappointment in people will be inevitable as you can’t always keep everyone happy. There will always be a black sheep to deal with but you will be able to move past this by keeping both emotion and intellect in balance when approaching the matter.
