To mark the start of October, one of our psychics has chosen a different tarot card for each star sign to represent how this spooky month could unfold. What does your Halloween tarot have in store for you?
Aries: Ten of Wands
Uh oh. You’re in hot water this month, Aries. You’re likely to spend much of October feeling overwhelmed and smothered by responsibilities you had no idea would emerge.
Whatever you do, don’t bite off more than you can chew this month. Relieve the burden by refusing to take on more than you can handle. Don’t be afraid to say ‘no’ to people who ask too much of you. They may respond in a negative way, but it’s crucial that you look after number one if you’re going to survive this month unscathed!
Taurus: The Hierophant
Don’t let nerves or a lack of confidence prevent you from enjoying the Halloween party of a lifetime, Taurus. Play your cards right in the first week of the month and there’s a strong chance you’ll be invited to a do by someone you consider charming, popular and influential. Your desperation to impress could see you acting like someone else. ‘Be yourself’ seems like odd advice on Halloween, considering you’re likely to be dressed as a zombie, witch or psychopath, but don’t be afraid to let your true personality shine through your costume. Your quirky sense of humour and goofy side is sure to help you win over new friends.
The Death card is probably the last one you want to uncover, particularly at such a spooky time of year, but you may be relieved to hear that it’s just as much about beginnings as it is about endings.
This month, be sure to wave goodbye to the people, situations and habits that are weighing you down. Stop making time for toxic people and behaviours, and instead, make room for the things that make you really happy. This October is all about reinventing yourself and starting anew, leaving behind those who have tried to drag you down.
Cancer: Five of Pentacles
You may feel a little lonely this October, but the power is in your hands to free yourself from isolation. Loneliness can sometimes cause a snowball effect, forcing us to cut ourselves off from the outside world and retreat into a pit of despair. If you don’t have any close friends or relatives you can turn to, take up a new hobby or start befriending people online. By identifying your interests and surrounding yourself with like-minded people, you’ll be amazed how much your mood shifts.
Leo: Five of Cups
Someone you trust tremendously may let you down this month, Leo. Although their betrayal will hurt, remember that nothing anyone ever does is because of you. This person may have had the very best intentions but nobody’s perfect and sometimes our faults have upsetting consequences for those around us.
Try not to wallow for too long. You’re a strong character with so much going for you and it won’t be long before you begin to see the sun shine through the clouds. If you’ve been thinking of embracing your spiritual side, there’s no time like the present. From making the most of your intuition and chakras to surrounding yourself with crystals and herbs, there are plenty of tools designed to help you achieve peace.
Virgo: Ten of Swords
The emergence of the Ten of Swords often indicates failure, defeat and disaster. If you have big plans for October, this may be the last thing you want to hear, but it’s important to remember that when we fail, we learn and grow.
You may struggle to achieve your dreams this month, Virgo, but that doesn’t mean you won’t make some progression. One thing’s for sure, this month is sure to be filled with valuable lessons that will help you achieve powerful and life-changing outcomes in the future.
Libra: Hanged Man (reversed)
When reversed, The Hanged Man represents a period where you may feel like you’re making unnecessary sacrifices without getting the results that you wish for in return. Perhaps you’re settling for less in your relationship only to feel unappreciated, or maybe you’re giving your all in work only to be overlooked by your boss. This could be a tough month, Libra, but persevere if you can and try to put your goals at the forefront of your mind. If you’re guilty of people-pleasing behaviour, put yourself first and let other people find their own way.
Scorpio: Six of Cups
This October you’re likely to uncover a deep, dark secret that you’ll probably wish you were completely ignorant to. Avoid going snooping unnecessarily. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss!
As tempted as you may be to confide in someone else and share the burden, think twice about spilling the beans. If the gossip is as juicy as we think it will be, the person you tell may struggle to keep a secret too. After all, if you can’t keep schtum, why do you expect them too?
Although it’s wise to keep your cards close to your chest, there’s no reason why you can’t have a little fun with this. This month could be one long Sherlock Holmes-inspired adventure.
Sagittarius: The Fool
Someone you know is acting a fool and demonstrating disruptive and damaging behaviour. Although you may feel tempted to fly off the handle and express your anger, take a deep breath and keep your distance. If you’re able to spend time apart from this person, this way be a wise move for everyone involved.
Avoid being rude to the person in question at all costs. Confronting them in a hostile way could cause even more turbulence while cursing you with a Halloween nightmare that’ll haunt you for years to come.
Capricorn: Nine of Swords
Conquer your fears this October, Capricorn. As tempted as you may feel to hide under the duvet away from things that go bump in the night, this won’t do you any good in the long term. Whether you’re scared of clowns, spiders or confrontation, stare these phobias dead in the face and tell them you’re not going to be spooked anymore. You may need some help from trusted friends. You may need to cut people off in the process. Team up with an Aries and a Gemini. They’re on similar paths and with each other’s support and guidance, you’ll have a wicked Halloween overflowing with personal triumphs.
Aquarius: Hermit (reversed)
The Hermit reversed could suggest that it’s time to embrace your spiritual self and experiment with your intuition. It’s time to dig deep into your inner being and uncover your true purpose in life. Perhaps you’ve spent so much time thinking about what you should do in life that you’ve failed to identify what you want to do.
If you’ve been thinking of decorating your home for Halloween, do so tactfully. Ditch the tacky supermarket decorations and instead transform your home with candles, crystals, incense, crystal balls and dim lighting.
Pisces: The Devil
You’re likely to spend much of October feeling trapped and restricted. No matter what you do, seemingly-impossible hurdles pop up left, right and centre. The universe is testing you, Pisces. It wants to see if you’ll give up at the first sign of trouble. Thankfully, you’re a passionate, determined and audacious sign who has an admirable attitude to adventure and risk. You’re a force to be reckoned with and you will not be stopped!
