Ready to play detective? The Ace of Swords and Moon cards reveal that there’s a great mystery to be solved in your life. And you need to dig, research, observe closely and ask questions. Don’t take things at face value this October, go looking for answers and insights at a deeper level. Seek truth, and your way will be illuminated. The Two of Wands shows this is going to lead you to a crossroads, and, armed with the right information, you can make a game-changing decision!

TAURUS

(Seven of Cups, Nine of Cups, The High Priestess)

You’re a practical ~doer~, and you don’t normally have much time for flights of fancy. But it’s your imagination that proves to be the place to be this October, Taurus! The Seven of Cups shows your creativity is surging and bubbling this Halloween. The High Priestess puts your intuition and psychic hunches on point, and asks you to spend time meditating, daydreaming, ruminating, and reflecting. The Nine of Cups means all of this is leading you towards a new ambition or goal, it comes from within. Tune in to your subconscious for a shiny epiphany.

GEMINI

(Queen of Wands, Six of Cups, Knight of Cups)

A childhood or teenage passion is waiting in the wings for you to invite it back into your life, Gemini! You, of all the signs, are the most closely linked to your inner child and youthful self, so you’ll know what this is already, no doubt. The Six and Knight of Cups hint at an old friend, or romance, or creative pursuit that brought you great joy. It can all be reignited! The Queen of Wands asks you to take a leap, a risk, and make a move. Nothing to lose, everything to gain. Reconnect.

CANCER

(The Tower, Four of Coins, Nine of Coins)

There’s a little red flag here, Cancer, in the shape of The Tower. Something you’re ignoring is likely to blow up and demand your attention, maybe in an unexpected or negative way. Don’t suppress this issue or try to slide on by. The Four and Nine of Coins reveal it’s about a change to your material world (home, work, money, health) that is necessary for your future prosperity and wellbeing, but that you have ignored and not actioned. NOW is the time. No more delays. Proactively do a ~future you~ a big favour!

LEO

(Seven of Swords, Five of Swords, Seven of Coins)

Some relationships just aren’t meant to last forever, they serve a purpose and have a reason to exist… and then they don’t. Recognise one such connection in your world, and let it go. The Seven and Five of Swords show that this person isn’t really good for you any more, they don’t have your best interests at heart and there could be stress and strife ahead if you don’t withdraw. The Seven of Coins shows it’s been a long time coming, and you know it deep down. Just let it go. This is just the natural dynamic taking its course.

VIRGO

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

You’re giving real priority and even business-like focus to your creative hobbies and pursuits. You are, at last, taking these fine skills of yours seriously, and finding time and energy to devote to them properly. The Queen and Knight of Swords gift you with ambition and determination. You understand that you’re good at this ~thing~, and that, with time and practice, you could make more of it. The Page of Cups reveals that it’s all still enjoyable fun. Spending more time on it won’t make it boring or routine. Throw yourself into your creative pastimes, Virgo.

LIBRA

(Ace of Coins, The Sun, Five of Wands)

All good things come to those with patience and determination, Libra. Nothing good comes too easily. The Sun promises you a glowing, magical prize at the end of the rainbow, but the Ace of Coins shows that is at least a year away and the Five of Wands reveals there are obstacles to be overcome first. That’s okay. You knew this wouldn’t be easy. The good news is that every step taken towards your dream will make it bigger and real-er, and you’ll feel more energised the closer you get. Take a deep breath and set off on this yellow brick road- it’s all going to be worth it. Don’t give up.

SCORPIO

(Knight of Wands, Four of Cups, Ace of Cups)

You’re missing out on the love of a lifetime, Scorpio, because you just won’t take notice of what is RIGHT under your own nose! The Four of Cups shows you’re seeking excitement and passion anywhere but close to home, and you’re therefore missing out on a gem right in your own backyard. The Knight of Wands shows this person is more exciting, dynamic and adventurous than you credit them as being, and if only you’d look their way properly, you might see the potential. The Ace of Cups hints things will change this month. You will notice them at last, and this love will (re)ignite!

SAGITTARIUS

(Judgment, The Empress, Two of Swords)

Let love and hope lead you, Sagittarius. The Two of Swords and Judgment show that you’re facing an important and life-changing decision. It means leaving something behind, one way or another, and that makes you hesitate. There is no turning back once this choice is made. Don’t worry. The Empress brings you promise of a bright future and asks that you focus on what (or who) you love, and what you feel has most hope for the future. Don’t be led by fear or caution. Be brave. Be optimistic. Let your passions help guide you to the right pathway from here.

CAPRICORN

(Three of Wands, The Hermit, Six of Swords)

Discipline is the key theme for you this month, Cap. The Hermit asks you to take yourself, and whatever you’re up to, seriously. And that includes fun! When you’re meant to be relaxing and enjoying yourself- make sure that you are. Stop hedging your bets and taking work calls when you shouldn’t or thinking about chores when you’re meant to be goofing about. The Six of Swords requests that you practice ~compartmentalising~ your life. Be 100% present in whatever task you’re involved with. The Three of Wands shows this will help you relax and enjoy life more. You won’t feel you’re shirking or slacking, and you’ll get the full benefit of whatever activity you’re doing.

AQUARIUS

(Justice, The Devil, Two of Cups)

You know you shouldn’t do it… but it’s hard to resist! You’re heading for ‘Temptation Island’ this Halloween, Aquarius, with the powerful forces of Justice and The Devil pulling you in different directions. Whose voice will sway you: your inner angel or devil? I can’t answer that, only time will tell. The Two of Cups shows this is related to close relationships, maybe romantic or maybe friendships or family. You’re about to do something you oughtn’t. Can you hold back and let this tempting offer pass by? You decide.

PISCES

(The Chariot, The Emperor, The Fool)

Three incredibly powerful major arcana cards, Pisces, with The Fool (new beginnings), The Chariot (journeys), and The Emperor (taking charge of a situation and your destiny). So, I feel like you’re going to be on the move, in a big way! If you were thinking of travelling, moving home or work, or changing location- then this is a great month to make a start on those plans, if not actually just up sticks and do it! Something is compelling you to take control of your ~place~ in this world. Something powerful is stirring you to make a big change in where you live, work or play. A new beginning is coming. Fresh landscape = fresh opportunity. Head out and broaden your horizons.
