The Cards and the Stars: Monthly Horoscope, October 2018

General Overview, All Signs

The Page of Swords card may indicate that you are very eager to execute an idea that you have been having or a project that you cooked up just recently. You are quite passionate about it and you cannot wait to share the progress with others. Compared to your passionate heart, time seems to be standing still. It is time to be talkative. When this card appears, it signifies communication and sharing of ideas. Whether it is someone else’s ideas or yours, it is time to open up and talk about them as long as it is a constructive.

The Three of Wands is about embracing change and adopting a longer-term view. It indicates you are in a position of strength as you control what happens around you. Thus, this is a card of vision and foresight and looking for greater possibilities. You are being encouraged to become a visionary and to dream beyond your current limitations. Now is the time to accept your vision and be confident that you will achieve it. Move fearlessly into new areas. Given the expanse of the water in the card, the Three of Wands often depicts travel. This card encourages you to think big in terms of where you want to travel to and what you will discover along the way. This card sees you traveling over water to a far-away country (including imagination), where you will then have the opportunity to fully develop yourself and learn many new things.

Negatively, the Magician card could be predicting the appearance of a conman or someone being duplicitous to you. In early readings, this card could also presage illness. Exercise caution right now, schedule an annual check-up if you haven’t had one this year, eat and sleep as healthfully as you can, and if someone says something to you that doesn’t carry the ring of truth, don’t ignore your inner voice.

On the positive side, however, your creative and intellectual gifts are at a high for the foreseeable future. You have willpower and determination to achieve the outcomes you’re seeking. Work and business may be your strong suits in October.

By Astrological Sign

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Coming to terms with yourself is a constantly changing activity, but this month it could be even more important.You will be feeling primal urges and possibly some strong cravings. One side of you may demand that you work while the other side wants to have fun. Your will can’t be exercised by forcing it; using the will is a subtle act of the utmost finesse. Watch out that you do not set yourself up for a fall when a bit of logic could make things work out smoothly. Things are changing. While this can be traumatic for some, these changes are positive and needed. Keep your perspective and renegotiate where needed. Happiness may be right under your nose. Tarot card: The Sun. Spirit Animal: Tiger. Aura: Emerald. Lucky Numbers: 3, 12, 16, 25, 38, 42.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):  Life should simplify for you a bit, Scorpio, roughly around the thirteenth of the month. The waning moon will bring memories of powerful love: those that have been, those that may be. Remember to stay connected to good memories of stable friendships and family relationships: these will keep you grounded. You may find yourself feeling stymied and impatient. Perk up, breathe through these moments, and remember to have fun, even if you’re not feeling like it. Some solitude may bring you peace of mind. Tarot card: The World. Spirit Animal: Woodpecker. Aura: Dusky Rose. Lucky Numbers: 6, 7, 9, 25, 52, 64.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):  Inside each and every one of us, there’s a “dark passenger” who’s willing to do absolutely anything to get what they want. It’s not an attractive trait, but it’s there. Your job this month is to resist the worst in yourself and in others, as well. October would be a fruitful time to strategize creative changes you’d like to make at home or work. On physical and metaphysical journeys alike, enjoy the small things and ask a friend to join you. You may find that you are holding on to things, people, money, or situations far more than you should for your own well-being and piece of mind. It’s time to relax and to remember that you cannot control what others choose to do. Tarot card: Three of Pentacles. Spirit Animal: Cricket. Aura: Russet. Lucky Numbers: 5, 6, 14, 49, 55, 64.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): You can feel as if you’re turning a corner this month. Even so, it’s in your best interests to keep some of your new ideas under wraps for a while longer (after the 10th makes more sense). Your energies this month are electric. You can feel very positive about the work you do, services you provide, or your self-care and health programs. You benefit from a window into the past to recognize what worked —and what didn’t— as well as a keen sense of upcoming trends and excitement for what’s ahead of you. Until the new moon, you’re in a good position to restore balance to your daily life and relationships therein. There can be more pleasure or social opportunities through health pursuits, work or daily routines. Tarot card: Six of Wands. Spirit Animal: Fox. Aura: Aubergine. Lucky Numbers: 8, 11, 32, 37, 49, 54.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Emotions are a funny thing: they can aid us, acting like “antennae” when we’re uncertain about the outcome of a situation (in the intellectual sense), and end up guiding us toward the most positive outcome. On the other hand, they can sway us, that is, if we let our hearts rule our minds when we really know they shouldn’t. Listen to the voice of your “antennae” and you’ll be fine, especially through the end of October. Now is a good time to try everything, even those things you think you won’t like. And take time to allow your smile and wisdom to light up the way forward for others. Tarot card: Five of Pentacles. Spirit Animal: Squirrel. Aura: Amber. Lucky Numbers: 6, 19, 20, 29, 41, 55.

Pisces (February 19  – March 20): This month is a great time to venture into typically tricky territory in a relationship, for coming to agreements regarding money and sharing the workload, for gaining support, and for better understanding and enjoying the deeper side of interactions. This can also be a time for thoroughly enjoying an exciting, consuming project. Planetary alignments stimulate your senses. You may want to do something on a whim and your ideas can be particularly unusual. Your mind is going to unexpected places now, and this can be a fun exercise. However, watch that you don’t jump to conclusions or speak too soon, as you may change your mind completely down the line. Tarot card of the month: Eight of Cups. Spirit Animal: Deer. Aura: Lagoon. Lucky Numbers: 5, 16, 17, 26, 33, 40.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Now is a good time to ask yourself what you could learn or create to better yourself or your circumstances. If you are already engaged in the pursuit of new learning, be encouraged that your efforts will eventually be rewarded. While it is important to get the details right, be aware of any tendency towards perfectionism where you may lose sight of the bigger picture. In general, take time this month to work on your stewardship: of yourself, your energies, and the resources around all of us. At work, please try this month to be prepared for scrutiny at all times: you’ll be relieved that you were. Tarot card: Page of Swords. Spirit Animal: Llama. Aura: Scarlet. Lucky Numbers: 1, 10, 11, 25, 26, 39.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Oh, Taurus, what have you been up to? If you’ve been slacking your responsibilities, mildly dissembling, or hiding some secrets, it’s quite possible that these things will be catching up with you this month. It’s going to feel a little tense and awkward when it happens, but know that at the end of it, you’ll have more freedom and flexibility and a clearer, healthier air surrounding you. On the bright side, this month brings creative inspiration to you and those around you will be in the mood to be carried away with your originality, wit, and general good humor. Watch out for a tendency to get melancholy as this year closes: all things have a season, after all. Renewed hope follows acceptance of universal truths.  Tarot card: Queen of Cups. Spirit Animal: Koala. Aura: Buttercream. Lucky Numbers: 2, 20, 29, 30, 44, 46.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): There may be a likely disappointment this month but do not be discouraged; allow yourself to feel the pain that may come and then move on. This will not be the end of the world. This is not a time to “go it alone.” Envy or jealousy may be an issue right now. You can benefit from fellowship right now to either improve your health or your spirituality. Open up your heart— it can always be closed again. Tarot card: Nine of Swords. Spirit Animal: Chipmunk. Aura: Goldenrod. Lucky Numbers: 3, 7, 19, 30, 40, 47.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Planetary alignments this month stimulate your senses. You may want to do something on a whim and your ideas can be particularly unusual. Your mind is going to unexpected places now, and this can be a fun exercise. However, watch that you don’t jump to conclusions or speak too soon this month, as you may change your mind completely down the line. If a friend or loved one grows aloof near the end of the month, just know that they are giving you the space you need to breathe and grow. The only outcome you need fear is if you ignore your own instincts. Tarot Card: Four of Cups. Spirit Animal: Jerboa. Aura: Periwinkle. Lucky Numbers: 1, 12, 13, 28, 33, 54.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): This month, you may feel a little confused and perhaps apprehensive because you sense or know that there is someone or something you need to give up to be able to move on. This self-sacrifice isn’t always clear: perhaps you need to try and look at things from a different perspective. After the seventh, life will go up a gear or two and events will accelerate you forward. Direct more of your energy outward so you may begin to manifest the ideas you store up inside. Be receptive to new ideas from all fronts right now. Ideas and solutions can be found everywhere. Tarot card: Judgement. Spirit Animal: Dolphin. Aura: Sienna. Lucky Numbers: 2, 7, 12, 31, 48, 56.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): You will easily get many opportunities to complete your unfinished work on time. Other problems which may crop up will get resolved quickly this month so do not bother yourself about them. Try to make the most of this month because whatever you will do will be successful as well as fruitful. You may soon be looking for good advice from someone dear to you. You are feeling very adventurous and are determined to make your own way. You are going to conquer all obstacles in your path by sheer determination and the force of your will.ᅠ Tarot card: Ten of Wands. Spirit Animal: Cicada. Aura: Chartreuse. Lucky Numbers: 2, 14, 28, 36, 44, 51.
