October 2018 Tarotscope
We have quite a feast for the senses this month. Not only are we busy emotionally, our mental wellbeing is put to the test as well. The first week sees you resolving and making decisions concerning your financial health. There is no room for emotion only clear judgment to implement positive changes. The results will speak for themselves and much sooner than you think as well. By the second week, you will feel like you are back in the driving seat and raring to make some important decisions concerning your wealth. Although confidence will be in full bloom in the third week, it might be wise to take things easy as well. You could be faced with money challenges again if you don’t pace yourself. It’s hard to hold the rein on things when you are on an adrenaline high. So take time to reflect and analyse your processes by the end of the month. It would be helpful to slow down to appreciate your achievements. We all need a balance in our lives so bask in the peace, calm and love that will surround you and be grateful for being you.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It’s an excellent month for finances and career. If you have been in debt, you are about to have that weight lifted off. This could be in the form of a mortgage or a loan that you took out to help family. Career plans and growth are also underway this October. You gain some inspiration for your ‘next phase’ in life through travel or a new hobby or by going back to school. Change in the material sense is definitely round the corner for Libra this month. Pay attention to any dreams, places or people that you might feel drawn to. They might just be your clues to the ‘next phase’ of your life.
Year Ahead (October 2018 – September 2019)
It might feel like a soul-searching year or you can also say a year where you find your feet on the ground. Place importance on beginning the year with letting go of any expectations that you may have surrounding work, business and relationships. The more you expect the longer the wait will be and can only lead to negative emotions. So let’s begin on a more positive note this year. Do your very best with no expectations whatsoever and when good news does comes by, fill your heart with gratitude. This in turn will make you a far more generous and relaxed person. Trust in divine timing and all will happen when it’s appropriate. The second quarter seems like an abundant month for couples who are seeking to get in the family way or finding true love while on your travels for some. For others, abundant may come in the form of discovering your true passion and the growth opportunities it brings. It is going to be quite an exciting second quarter. Having big dreams is all good and well, it might be easier to break things down so you don’t feel like you are working hard and never seeing the end of it. Manage your expectations in the third quarter well. You will be nearing a comfortable place with your finances. Relationships take centre stage as we enter the final quarter. Walk away from aggressive and tense situations. Approach matters with a third party perspective and compassion, don’t forget to add a little light-heartedness too.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s going to be a very productive month where a lot can be achieved – only if you get down to it! You have all the ingredients and tools to make the month a success. Once you finally get to it, expect to move full steam ahead. The natural leader in you is eager to begin organising things. The thirst to accomplish is great this month. You will be in a happy place once your project is complete or set in motion. This month will be reminiscent of a time where you got up to smell the coffee and received handsome returns.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Work on a plan to eradicate your discontent this month. Heed your intuition and allow your heart guide you. If it’s a flower arranging or a writing class that has been beckoning you, avoid making any more excuses why you should not pursue it. You need an avenue to unleash your creativity. This new found passion could have monetary returns if you are good enough at it. Beware however of building sandcastles in the air. Let’s try to find what excites you first to give you that added spring in your step this month!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Change is imminent – the need to feel emotionally satisfied with what you do will outweigh the material satisfaction it brings you. You are exploring opportunities this month. It won’t matter to you how raw or clumsy your plans for change may be as things have come to a boiling point and you can’t stay where you are anymore. You crave challenge and treading the unknown becomes more inviting than the riches and abundance you have accumulated. It could not be a better time to pursue new skills, study or even travel. Embrace change with trust and fearlessness this October.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You have emerged from difficult times and are now in a place of love, peace and calm. In order to have reached this space, you have had to make some difficult sacrifices. It was important that you took the step in order to achieve this balance in your life. Expect to be of service to others now that you are in a better place. There might be a need to assist someone in their finances or business plans. However, discern your input very carefully and ensure that monies will be returned to you.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
The long-term plans that you have been working on reach a completion. Be prepared to have a spanner in the works just before you near the end. Despite feeling like you have everything that you need to see things to completion, the universe will have other plans for you. You could be thrown completely off course and have to start all over. When and if this happens, take this opportunity to question yourself why are you pursuing this, and how will this benefit you in the long-term. Your planning will need to include possibilities as well as obstacles well ahead into the future.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Make right what doesn’t feel right. There is no need to feel sorry for yourself. Instead use the power of your very rational mind to find a solution out of your dissatisfaction. You do eventually discover the path and achieve calm, happiness and love in your state of being this month. It might also be a good time to address the balance you have currently. A review of how you spend your time will definitely be in order for you to get yourself on the right path again.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Tension, conflict or struggle could prove to be a hurdle when trying to achieve financial comforts this month. Whilst in the process, an important question to ask yourself – is it going to be worth souring relationships just to get what you want. A review of your personal interests and sacrificing relationships will be crucial at mid-month to be clear if this is indeed the path you wish to take. Be fair in your dealings. Cutting corners to achieve your goals via perfidious way won’t sit very well with others.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The month ahead seems to be plagued by worry and fear. But do bear in mind that what stays in your mind may not necessarily manifest physically. It might be helpful to remind yourself of this so you don’t fall into a downward spiral of getting overwhelmed by your worries and losing your focus. The worry surrounds the structure and stability in your life. This includes your ability to provide for your family, maintaining your home or competition at work. To help yourself get through the month, step out of your victim mentality. It would help to stop and pause to give yourself some air to clear your head before your carry on again.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
It could turn out to be a chaotic month depending on how you choose to look at things. Competition is rife and to stay on top some sacrifices will have to be made. These sacrifices may not be welcomed by all around you so expect conflict and resistance to the changes you will try to implement. While their moaning may seem like a tantrum to you they are actually feeling a physical threat to their comfort and security. Approach the situation with compassion and empathy and you should be able to put things right with everyone and have your way at the same time.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
This might be the month where your self-confidence reaches its peak. But for the ever temperamental Aquarius you can’t help but to doubt your capabilities. It has been an impressive year for you and your achievements so don’t forget to give yourself a good pat on the back. Self-doubt will be an inevitable part of you but remember to smell the roses every now and again. It is also important to have a balanced approach to life. So if it has been all work and no play. Make time to indulge in a hobby, spend time in nature, visit the spa or just take a holiday!
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are about to experience the opposite of stability and structure this month. Everything has always gone to plan and you have done everything the ‘right’ way. But why is there still a feeling of dissatisfaction? Finances are in the best place that it can ever be but things have become too perfect and monotonous. Shaking off past beliefs and ideals and embracing chaos may be the answer if you are looking for a change and wanting to experience how things feel like on the ‘other side’. The solution to this feeling of dis-ease with the flow of life may just be to go with it’s flow. Hold on as it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
