To mark the start of October, one of our psychics has chosen a different tarot card for each star sign to represent how the month could unfold. We believe Tarotscopes are a simple way to create a life of peace, meaning and prosperity, plus it’s an opportunity for people to learn more about the definitions of tarot decks. Below are all of the cards that are chosen for the month of October 2016.
*All cards pictured in this blog post are from the famous Rider-Waite Tarot Card deck.*
ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Keywords: Joy, inner peace,
Have the last few weeks felt like one long emotional rollercoaster? If so, you’ll be glad to hear that it’s almost time for you to get off. The appearance of the Ace of Cups suggests that joy and inner peace lies ahead. Whether you’ve been struggling to get over a break up or you’ve been having problems at work, look out for the sun’s appearance through the clouds.
If you’ve made a sacrifice or two recently, you may start to see the pay off in the coming weeks. Avoid dwelling on the past or looking for revenge, instead focus on the present and use your positivity and hope to propel you into a brighter future.
TAURUS (APRIL 20TH- MAY 20TH)
Keywords: Naivety, foolishness, adventure
You’re on a promising path, Taurus, but you may find yourself doing some impractical or reckless things along the way. Although it’s important to let your personality shine through, the last thing you want is to come across as foolish, ignorant or naive.
Avoid playing down your achievements in October. You’re an extremely intelligent soul but you sometimes let your sense of humour and eagerness to please overshadow your wisdom and abilities.
GEMINI (MAY 21ST- JUNE 20TH)
Keywords: Power, skill, talent
Use your hidden talents to your advantage, Gemini. By putting your knowledge to the test and exercising your skills, you’ll impress those who matter while moving that little bit closer towards your ultimate life goals. Don’t waste too much time trying to please everyone. Remember: those who mind, don’t matter and those who matter, don’t mind.
Don’t let a sceptical colleague or negative friend discourage you from reaching for your dreams. Some people are quick to say you won’t succeed but in reality, they just tried and failed themselves!
CANCER (JUNE 21ST- JULY 22ND)
Keywords: Power, clarity, success
Could it be that the only thing standing in between you and your goals is your own procrastination and self doubt? If you like to make excuses and predict how things might go wrong before you’ve even tried, it’s time to put this awful habit to rest.
By focussing on your goals and blocking out distractions, you may get to where you want to be. You never know, you may even reach your destination far quicker than you ever imagined.
Keep an eye out for a ‘Eureka’ moment where everything seems to fall into place.
LEO (JULY 23RD- AUGUST 22ND)
Keywords: Teamwork, conformity, following, tradition
Don’t let someone else’s beliefs dictate what you do, Leo. Listening to others and taking their knowledge on board can be a really valuable learning experience but it’s important to know your own mind too. Be brave and in the words of Fleetwood Mac, ‘go your own way.’
As October progresses, you may grow tired of the usual crowd and long to meet some fresh faces and make new friends. On your quest for new friendships, don’t completely abandon those who’ve stood by you for years, even if you have been getting on each others’ nerves recently. A temporary break from each other may be just the thing you need to clear your mind and strengthen your friendships.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23RD- SEPTEMBER 22ND)
Keywords: Abundance, glory, respect
Don’t forget where you came from, Virgo. If you recently achieved a goal or you’ve been receiving applause from those around you, you may be tempted to bask in your glory. Although it’s important to take credit for your work and accept compliments graciously, don’t let it go straight to your head.
Think back to your humble beginnings and surround yourself with the people you’ve known for years rather than focussing on those who are simply drawn to the glamour and glory of your current self.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23RD- OCTOBER 22ND)
Keywords: Efficiency, routine, responsibility
If you find yourself with new and unexpected responsibilities, try to see these as a positive thing rather than a burden. This can be your chance to try new things and demonstrate your ability to be flexible and open to change.
These new responsibilities may make it difficult for you to continue your old routine as usual but by being organised and cutting out the time saps that don’t matter, you can make this transition fairly easily.
If you’ve been contemplating a temporary social media ban, now could be the perfect time to break away from your phone screen. By freeing up time here and there, you can meet and exceed expectations.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23RD- NOVEMBER 21ST)
Keywords: Success, accomplishment, completion
You often struggle to achieve fulfilment, Scorpio, because you’re always looking for the next best thing. Rather than celebrating your achievements, you’re quick to focus on the things you have yet to accomplish. Take a step back and take note of what you do have.
The appearance of The World card suggests you’ve completed a grand project and you’re reaping the benefits from your hard work. There’s just one problem – you won’t acknowledge your own success. Open a bottle of wine and write a list of all you’ve accomplished in the last 6 months. You’ve done well and deserve to take a break before moving onto the next challenge.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22ND- DECEMBER 21ST)
Keywords: Happiness, satisfaction, glory
The Nine of Cups suggests all your wishes may soon become true, regardless of whether you deserve them or not. This news may tempt you to sit back and wait for glory to come your way, but if you work at it and strive to do a good job, the benefits will increase ten-fold.
Ask yourself one question: Do you want your success to be at the expense of those around you? If not, work hard and help your friends, colleagues and loved ones to be the best they can be too.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22ND- JANUARY 19TH)
Keywords: Loneliness, solitude, reflection
The appearance of The Hermit can mean a wide number of things for you and your future. It could be a sign that you’re feeling lonely, even if you’re surrounded by people. Coupled up Capricorns should take a moment to assess whether their relationships are bringing joy and contentedness into their lives or not. If you’re happy with your partner, keep nurturing your relationship so your special bond can continue. If your relationship makes you feel more alone than you look to outsiders, it may be time for a change.
If you’re single, don’t assume that a relationship will rectify any loneliness you possess. Sometimes, we need to strengthen relationships with friends and family members rather than searching high and low for romantic love.
The Hermit could indicate that a period of self love may be required. If you suffer from low self esteem and you lack confidence, it’s vital that you address these issues if you want to achieve happiness and satisfaction.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20TH- FEBRUARY 18TH)
Keywords: Burden, responsibility, hard work
What’s on your mind, Aquarius? If you feel like there’s an unbearable weight on your shoulders, the Ten of Wands suggests you may need support. You’re a determined soul who doesn’t like asking for help but your pride could be what’s getting in your way and making you feel down.
Avoid biting off more than you can chew and don’t agree to take on more work when deep down you know you’ll struggle. Focus on quality rather than quantity and push your dreams of becoming a Jack of all Trades to one side.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Keywords: Unhappiness, despair, anxiety
Are you feeling haunted by your past, Pisces? If so, it’s time to let these troubles go. This may sound easier said than done but the sooner you learn to appreciate and nurture the present rather than regretting and dwelling on the past, the sooner you’ll achieve a feeling of peace.
If you’ve been having nightmares, it may be time to seek the help of spiritual tools. From hanging a dreamcatcher above your bed to making the most of healing crystals, there are so many ways to nip bad vibes in the bud while introducing more positive energies. If you haven’t already, give meditation a go. You might feel a little silly at first but you’ll soon be amazed at how much peace it gives you.
