Want to know what's in store for your star sign for October 2022? It's all in the cards...

ARIES

(Strength, Ten of Coins, Six of Cups)

This October you are going to make real headway on working on your material realm and getting control of the aspects of it - work, home, money. It might well start financially but this will blossom into a broader feeling of being in control and knowing how you can marshal your resources to survive and thrive.

Strength and the Ten of Coins combine to provide this bedrock and purpose to your life this month. Invest in managing your finances well, look to your home administration, protect your ~nest~.

The Six of Cups asks you to look to your family, ancestors, childhood, and youth to rekindle some habits or ideas or practices which used to help in saving money, cutting corners, building up wealth, making home feel safe and protected. Maybe family members can offer support or good advice. Maybe there are tricks and tips you've deployed in the past that could work well again now.

TAURUS

(Nine of Swords, Nine of Coins, Queen of Cups)

You feel emotional and stirred up about your long-term future. The Nines of Swords and Coins combine to put you in the dangerous spot of catastrophising about what might lie ahead, and also not sharing your doubts or fears so they grow bigger and darker in the shadow of your mind.

Taurus, stop this. The Queen of Cups puts an arm around you because it IS all going to be okay. Whatever you’re worrying about, you have overblown it and things have just gotten out of proportion. Find a trusted person to talk to this October. Spill the beans, pour your heart out, release this poison. Things are not half as bad as you fear. Whatever issues there are, you can easily face them.

GEMINI

(The High Priestess, The Hanged Man, Five of Wands)

The Hanged Man reveals you have hit a roadblock, felt thwarted or frustrated, and events have slowed to a halt. Momentum is important to you, Gem, and you always want to be pacing ahead, moving things on, creating new ideas and actions. Just chill. It can’t always be like that, you know. The High Priestess asks you to use this little hiatus to look at things from other angles, other perspectives, other people’s point of view.

The Five of Wands hints there is a conflict you’ve glossed over that actually holds the key to you making progress again. Zoom in on the real tension, tackle it at root cause level, and move ahead once more.

CANCER

(The Fool, Seven of Wands, Knight of Cups)

New beginnings are on the cards this October, Cancer, with the tarot’s patron saint of clean slates and fresh starts: The Fool. Do what suits you, do what inspires you, do what makes you feel alert and alive (even if others disapprove). No one has to live your life but you. So be in control.

The Seven of Wands shows you might have competition or rivalry around this new beginning. Others want what you have. Don’t let that put you off because you deserve this break. Rivalry is actually a compliment and it shows you’ve chosen something worthwhile to pursue.

The Knight of Cups hints this could be linked to romance, friendship or some kind of holiday, event, trip or wonderful adventure. Maybe you’re running off to Bali to become a yoga instructor (aren’t they all…) or starting a new relationship. Whatever this is… stand your ground, make it happen, and revel in the inspiring energy of starting afresh.

LEO

(Seven of Swords, The Emperor, Four of Coins)

It’s happening again. The Seven of Swords and Four of Coins combine to make you finally notice a crappy behaviour from someone in your circle (could be friend, family or work) which actually isn’t okay. They’ve gotten away with it so far, but you have spotted the pattern now, and you’re ready to oust it. Good for you, Leo. You are a natural force for truth and justice, you protect other people innately, and you don’t want this bad habit cropping up ever again. Say something. Do something. Speak up.

The Emperor reveals it could be based on a power struggle, an imbalance in a relationship, a person who is overbearing or even bullying. Do what you can to identify this and remove it from your life, and those you love.

VIRGO

(The Devil, King of Wands, Ace of Coins)

You are such a self disciplined person (usually…) but this October has you feeling sorely tempted to do something rather rash, rather risky, and maybe rather wonderful. As long as you’re willing to own the consequences then, to heck with it, you should follow your instincts!

The Devil is this path of least resistance. Sometimes The Devil is negative but sometimes he is a positive force. We are all free to do what we please, as long as we take responsibility for it. The King of Wands sees this temptation feeling exciting, inspiring, enlivening and empowering. You want to do this!

The Ace of Coins offers a small mitigating piece of advice: pace it. This doesn’t have to happen overnight, straightaway or right now. You can plan it out, create a more risk-aware strategy. You can, in short, have your cake AND eat it if you space this all out a bit.

LIBRA

(Six of Wands, Page of Wands, Three of Cups)

Make an effort to spice up your social life a bit this October, Libra! The Six of Wands reminds you to focus on the people, places and activities which already bring you joy - if it ain’t broke, then no need to fix it, right?

The Page of Wands asks you to add in a few ~wild cards~ too. Experiment. Go someplace new and interesting, connect with people you might not normally hang around with, join a group you pick at random, pop in and sign up for something you wouldn’t normally consider. Aim to have tried at least three new things by month end. The Three of Cups shows it’s time to revel, celebrate, live well, mingle and enjoy this wonderful world you’re living in.

SCORPIO

(The Hermit, The Magician, Temperance)

A trio of major arcana cards for you this October, Scorpio, so expect a magical, powerful, game-changing (in a good way) month ahead! The Hermit and The Magician ask you to get down to business, putting away distractions, on something creative which you are desperate to produce. A book, a pitch, a DIY project, a makeover, a course, a creation of some wondrous kind! Get serious, get real, and make a plan you can stick to.

Temperance shows that things will change as a result of pursuing this creative goal. Your outlook will shift, your habits and behaviours will adapt, and your sense of self esteem, identity and pride will blossom. You are ready to create something special. You just need to prioritise the time and energy to do it and get it done!

SAGITTARIUS

(Seven of Coins, The Star, Eight of Cups)

A knockback has gotten you thinking... The Eight of Cups sees you facing up to a disappointment you’ve endured recently, seeing it for what it is, and actually wondering if it might have been a blessing in disguise. Let me tell you: it was! The Seven of Coins urges you to find the silver lining here and act on it. This ~thing~ wasn’t right for you because something bigger and better is. Find what that is and set off in its direction this October.

The Star is a wish fulfilment card. What you aim for next WILL happen. Make an overt and direct wish and let the Universe get behind you. Whatever was lost will be replaced by something way better.



CAPRICORN

(Knight of Swords, Page of Cups, Ace of Swords)

Tact and diplomacy are called for this October because you need to get something off your chest, with the brutally honest Ace of Swords, in a way that will land and resonate (vs challenge and put off) someone who is already a bit sensitive (the Page of Cups). You probably wish you didn’t have to have this conversation and have probably been avoiding it.

The Knight of Swords urges you to press ahead, however, because this isn’t going to resolve itself and the tension or issues will only keep on mounting up. Rehearse your points, think about possible comebacks and prepare ready answers. Pick a good time to talk. Be kind, be compassionate, listen carefully. Every story has two sides. You probably don’t know the real drivers or issues going on for this person. Find out, but make sure you land what you need to say too.

AQUARIUS

(Ace of Wands, Five of Coins, Knight of Coins)

Once bitten twice shy. It’s easy to get defensive, cautious, and even stubbornly over-protective of yourself after a blow or setback. The Five and Knight of Coins have you licking your wounds, dwelling on the hurt you endured, overthinking whether it might happen again and how to avoid it. Live and learn by all means, but don’t stop living! Caution is wise, but inertia or total shutdown is not.

The Ace of Wands asks you to turn the page, start anew, rebuild, and re-enter the stage with optimism and enthusiasm. All was not lost. There’s still a long, happy life ahead of you- get busy living it well!

PISCES

(The Sun, Four of Cups, Eight of Wands)

Talking to new people will herald an amazing opportunity or reward that you simply must not miss out on, Pisces! Expand your network with the chatty Eight of Wands. Push past shyness and just introduce yourself. The Four of Cups reveals you need a little injection of fresh energy and inspiration and that meeting new people is the fastest route to success.

The Sun is the tarot’s most positive card and promises success, love, joy, prosperity and opportunity ahead if you can summon your confidence and reach out, get in touch, ask the question, be positive and proactive. It’s ALL there to play for.
