The Death card reminds us that all good things must come to an end, and October is the last month of Tarotscopes on this blog! But don’t worry, the Tarotscopes aren’t going away, just moving to my author blog (managing two blogs got too complicated).
I’m drawing one card for each sign from the Tarot’s Major Arcana and the second from its elemental suit. E.g. since Libra is an air sign, one card is drawn from the Major Arcana and one from the Tarot’s air suit, swords, for Libra. (Standard disclaimer: Tarotscopes are for entertainment purposes only). And in honor of the season, our gif theme is Hocus Pocus.
Libra, September 23 – October 22: Page of Swords and The Chariot. Your brain is in overdrive, but think (or feel) carefully. Are you being driven by conscious or subconscious desires? Neither is inherently good or bad, but it’s important to figure out where these thoughts are coming from. The best outcome places your higher self in the driver’s seat.
Scorpio, October 23 – November 21: Nine of Cups and Temperance. Are the holiday parties starting already? You’ll be tempted to extremes this month. They look like so much fun. But Temperance suggests while you should most definitely enjoy the well-deserved goodies, don’t go overboard.
Sagittarius, November 22 – December 21: Queen of Wands and The High Priestess. The outgoing feminine energy of the queen unites with the mysterious, wise, and secretive priestess for some serious inner witchery this month. This dynamic combination calls for you take your inner knowing and apply it in the world – lovingly.
Capricorn, December 22 – January 19: Ace of Pentacles and Strength. This Ace represents potential on the physical realm – health and wealth, house and home. But it’s potential. You need to actualize it. The Strength card counsels love. We all have beasts inside of us, and some of us our better at taming them than others. Be patient towards those who’s beasts are running amuck, and learn to love your own. Ultimately, fighting the beast never leads to a good outcome.
Aquarius, January 20 – February 18: Nine of Swords and The Magician. Things may seem stressful, but appearances aren’t everything (especially since what we experience is mostly in our heads). Here’s the thing, Aquarius, The Magician is YOU. You create your own reality, and you have the power to change your thoughts and actions and make it awesome.
Pisces, February 19 – March 20: Ten of Cups and Justice. This month you’re going to get what’s coming to you Pisces, and that means good stuff. And if, as you were reading this, you felt a tremor of anxiety, cut it out! Trust in the happy ending, and know there’s more adventure around the corner.
Aries, March 21 – April 19: Eight of Wands and Judgment. Do it. Do it now. NOW!!! You’re either being called to act and to move swiftly, or you’re being called to act, and things are going to move fast whether you like it or not. Judgment is a call from your inner (and outer) angels, so listen carefully to them so the river doesn’t sweep you somewhere you may not like.
Taurus, April 20 – May 20: Two of Pentacles and the Hierophant. This month promises to be a juggling act. To manage it successfully, pace yourself and ask for some damn help. What you’re doing now is laying the groundwork for some important moves forward in your life. So take it seriously, and do it right.
Gemini, May 21 – June 20: Two of Swords and The Emperor. It’s decision time, Gemini. And The Emperor suggests you choose the hard-headed, logical path. Not sure what that is? Then look to process. (I know, flighty Gemini, process ain’t terribly exciting), but if you want to move forward swiftly (and I know you do, because you’re impatient), you’ll need a plan and a map.
Cancer, June 21 – July 22: Ace of Cups and the Wheel of Fortune. The Ace of Cups is the figurative Holy Grail. Your fortunes are rising, Cancer. Enjoy them deeply and ethically, but don’t get carried away. The wheel is constantly turning.
Leo, July 23 – August 22: Two of Wands and The Hanged Man. A choice lies before you, but don’t let yourself get hung up in analysis paralysis. And know that doing nothing is a choice as well. If that’s your choice, then fine, but make it a choice, not something that just “happens” because you couldn’t make up your mind.
Virgo, August 23 – September 22: Queen of Pentacles and Death. This Queen is a nurturer, and she’s being called upon to nurture an ending. Everything comes to a conclusion, but too often we turn our faces from it and let it just happen. Bringing things to a positive close requires attention, grace, and love. Are you willing?
