Insight for October 2021
Hi there, hope you’re coping with the change of season, and are looking forward to much warmer days! I’d like to go straight into my insight for this month.
Most clients who consult with me do so for the purpose of having a tarot reading. This is wonderful for me as I love this ancient practise and I love sharing messages that I receive. The tarot deck is a wonderful tool when used correctly. The more one uses it, the more information flows through / is channelled, and the cards become merely the catalyst.
But I’m not here to explain to you how it all works as that is a mystery in itself. I sometimes feel that the angels remove the pictures from the cards and when they’re put right way up, the pictures miraculously appear and paint a story especially for the client. In all the years that I’ve been doing readings, not one reading has ever been the same. Thankfully.
What I’d like to expand on this month is the insight that the tarot reading gives a client. The tarot is not an exact science. It is a tool that is used to guide you (I’m going to use “you” now instead of “client” as it sounds so formal) to greater heights in life, to help you avoid anything that can be avoided, and to simply uplift your spirits. However, what follows for you after the reading does involve a certain amount of input from you.
The readings I love doing most of all, are the ones where I share the information as it comes through, sometimes stagnated or broken up due to how the story unfolds, not quite making sense until the end. In real life, that’s exactly how things are. Many things are going on all at once. Sometimes it has to do with us, other times it involves the people around us. So when I am doing a reading, it’s quite possible that your friends’ or family’s activities will surface and I’ll share the information. This is also a milestone in your reading where you’ll be able to gauge how far you’re progressing, or what to anticipate next.
There is no exact timing in a reading. Some readers share time as “6 days” “6 weeks” “6 months”. I prefer the approach where I’m sensing seasons (summer, spring, cold weather) or events (festive season, Easter, invite to an event – you know the drill). Sometimes the most bizarre pointers some up and I share them as I hear them, sense them, see them … It may not make sense at the time, but later things fall into place.
The great part of having a tarot reading is that it is a guidance tool. Let’s take an example: John wants to change his career and he pops along for some insight and asks the question, “Is it wise for me to change jobs and look for something new?” After taking down his date of birth, which allows me to determine which Court card he is in the reading, I can see what’s possibly down the line for dear John. I’ll give him feedback, and probably more insight than just a yes / no answer. I’ll also ask him if he’s put his CV out if I see there’s an opportunity looming. If he hasn’t put out his CV, I’ll encourage him to do so. We don’t want to waste an opportunity. I see positive change for him, and sometimes I’ll even share insights about the character who will interview him, or he’ll be working for ultimately.
We then move on with the reading and I share more insights with John, who goes away quite happy with the reading. He’s made countless notes throughout the session, which he’s quite entitled to do, but his handwriting isn’t that great. So … 6 months down the line, John contacts me and wants to know what I said after I told him that he’s going for several interviews for the same position. He now wants to know what percentage increase in his offer, as opposed to his miserable salary now. He also wants to know whether he’ll be promoted in the next year or so. And if this new position will allow him to buy a new home and possibly a new car.
I remember dear John as he’s a valued client and he’s humorous and wacky and is into trying new things in life … wadda wadda fishpaste...
The problem is, is that John anticipates that his reading carries on for the next 6 months, that he expects me to remember everything I said during his reading and is now acting insecurely.
John was the one who went to the interview/s. He had ample opportunity to ask questions about promotions and his future with the company. Instead, he decided that it’s best to lay this at my door instead and now wants instant attention. If he doesn’t get it, he spams me with Whatsapp messages and demands a response.
This is Not Good for me. And Not Good for John.
Take me out of the picture and John would have used his intuition, he would have used his common sense in the interview/s, and would have relied on his gut. Not All Jobs are for You even if you are Successful in Securing an Interview.
Out of empathy for John, I hastily look at the cards late one night after someone else’s session and give him some insight. He doesn’t like the answer, or likes the answer, but he never responds or says thank you. I don’t hear from John again until a year later when he’s about to immigrate with his new company based on the promotion that he received, and he asks me whether he should do so.
This is the life that a tarot reader often has with a client. It’s part of the process and there is no judgment. However, there is what you call energy draining. It’s based on fear and panic (and sometimes alcohol late at night).
I’m sharing this information with you and it’s based very generally on experiences over the years. What I’d like to encourage you to do, and not behave like John, after having a tarot reading is the following:
1. Don’t overthink your reading or look further into the reading by looking for things that aren’t there
2. Remain light-hearted about the forecast and don’t try to stick to timelines as per the milestones in your reading
3. Keep an open mind
4. Anticipate something great will happen to you at any moment of any day
5. Remain composed even if you feel that things are taking too long to reveal themselves
You’ll come to realise that in retrospect, your life has moved on, events have come about, you can change your mind, and that the most important person in your life is YOU.
It is not the tarot reader’s job to Tell You What To Do In Life. Your reading is a forecast of possible events because you are born with the ability to make choices. What the tarot reader picks up on are your dreams and your desires, your doubts, your fears, and these are inter-mingled with your forecast. If you are the biggest doubter in the world, no matter what anyone tells you, it won’t come to pass. You don’t believe in yourself and you don’t believe what anyone else tells you. The power of the mind is great.
As a tarot reader, I’d like to encourage you to see for yourself what a tarot reading is all about. It’s an encouragement of your potential, what is out there for You, what you can look forward to if you make the effort, or what you could avoid.
My job is not to tell you How to live your life; which person to Choose as a life partner; which Job to accept; How to leave your husband; Where to display your Art; What time of the day you’ll Meet The One; What Dress you should be wearing to impress someone; or whether you should have another Child. My job is to give you insights of possible events based on your desires and dreams, and to help you achieve those dreams by sharing pertinent information with you. Your job is to take the information, process the information, and follow through with the process. If you change your mind along the way, taking full accountability for your own life, bless you. Your dreams and desires will be achieved and your forecast will eventuate.
I’ve been told that I only share “good” things in my readings. Okay, here’s a thing. I’m not going to tell you that your car is going to be stolen. I’d rather say something like, “Watch where you park your vehicle as I’m seeing a possible theft.” It’s up to you to use your discernment where to park your car. You’ll already have the feeling in your gut that something isn’t right and you need to move your car. Listen to it. As I shared above: The Mind Is PowerFul.
Here’s another scenario: “I see the person you would be working for is difficult and pedantic and may make your life awkward.” If you like a challenging environment, the choice is yours. Accept the position.
Another: “I sense stress around you and tightness on your chest. Best you load up with Vit B or see your doctor about stress medication / relief.” You’ve received a possible verdict and it’s up to you to follow through. It’s not a good idea to wait until you’re having the heart attack before making some changes, and then blame it on the tarot reader because she didn’t see the heart attack.
Tarot reading is challenging and it can be draining at times, as well as so fulfilling and uplifting. I would like to bring it to your attention that channeling your guides and the angels is not an exact science. It’s a tool that can help you as you help yourself. The most wonderful thing is that your angels and guides want you to achieve in life. They want the best for you. And it doesn’t matter how you look at it, you still play a part in making choices in your own life that are best for you.
The tarot reader is the catalyst bringing you forecasts of your opportunities, what to look out for, go for, avoid … and at the end of the day, it’s still up to you. You were born with intuition and discernment. I’d like to encourage you to build this gift up within yourself.
On that note ... let me wish you a great October!
I will be attending this fayre on Saturday, 2 Oct.
Readings are R350 for 30 min.
Please pop along and spend some time with like-minded peeps!
Angel Reading for October 2021
with the Angel Therapy Oracle Cards
“Align your actions so that they match your values and inner knowingness of what is right for you.”
This card is a response to your questions or prayers about increasing your happiness and confidence. The angels answer is: Only conduct activities that you believe are right. This is based on no one else’s code of conduct but your own.
The angels say that engaging in behaviors that you feel guilty or ashamed about erode your self-esteem and self-confidence. Conversely, you can feel great about yourself by only doing that which you feel is right. Again, this is based on your own moral compass and no one else’s. The angels can help you change or heal any situation or relationship so that you are able to bring your entire life fully into alignment with your inner truth.
Lie down and meditate in the process normally thought of as ‘Daydreaming” – that is, allow your imagination to roam free. Instruct your mind, heart, and soul to show you a mental movie of you living your life as its healthiest and highest levels. Watch this movie, and notice how it makes you feel.
I ask that you help me arrange my life and daily activities so that I am fully immersed and engaged in actions that reflect my higher self. Please help me let go of any behaviors, habits or actions that have engendered guilt or shame in the past; and replace them with actions I feel good about.”
Law of Attraction:
This card signals that you’re experiencing shifts because of your spiritual path. The Universal Law of Attraction says that like attract like. So you’re attracted to people and situations that have similar intentions to your own.
For example, if your intentions are to be loving and to see the Divine within everyone, you’ll attract loving people and situations.
You’ll also repel people who have unloving focuses. This is why you may find your relationships and tastes changing.
You may avoid old friends who no longer fascinate you, or perhaps you now dread going to a job or club that you previously enjoyed.
Know that these experiences and feelings are a normal part of the spiritual path; you’re attracting wonderful, new relationships, situations, and jobs that mirror your spiritual focus.
Give any cares, questions, concerns, guilt, and so forth to the angels for healing and transmutation.
Quietly call upon Archangels Raguel (the relationship angel) and Chamuel (the angel who finds what you’re looking for) and say:
“Archangels Raguel and Chamuel, thank you for helping me stay true to myself as I experience this important change. I ask for your complete and thorough assistance in sorting through relationships, my career, and other life areas where I feel my tastes have changed. Guide me through these changes with grace, compassion, and integrity so that everyone involved is blessed.”
Acknowledging that you may have moved on from needing certain situations or people is a step in your journey of higher consciousness. Sometimes we cling on, out of obligation, fear of hurting the other person, or rocking the boat; to situations that are no longer healthy for us. Negative people have low vibrational energy and can affect your energy if you are not careful to shield yourself before spending time around them, or before going out in public generally, and also to clear yourself by cutting cords after.
Heal away addictions:
This card comes to you to validate what you already know: It’s time to let go of addictive behaviors, as they’re interfering with your health, happiness, and life purpose. The angels ask you to be very honest with yourself, and admit that these addictions are wasting your time, robbing you of energy and confidence, and blocking the answers to your prayers. Fortunately, the angels will support you through every step of healing away cravings and other addictive tendencies.
It begins with your making a clear decision to let the addiction (or addictions) go. Weight the pluses and minuses of the addictive behavior. Once you’re emotionally ready to release it, take the following action steps:
Go to a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Then say, silently or aloud:
“Archangel Raphael, I call upon you now.”
Think of what you’d like to release (it could include destructive patterns, compulsive behaviors, toxic relationships, and unhealthful cravings). Imagine these addictions (or a symbol of them) sitting on your lap or upper legs. You might see or feel the addictions; and you may also sense how they’re attached to your stomach area with tangled cords, webs, and roots.
Breathe deeply while saying:
“Archangel Raphael, I’m now ready to release these former addictions to you and Heaven. Please cut all of the roots, cords, and webs attached to these addictions; and lift them to the light for transmutation and healing.”
After Raphael carts away the addictions, he’ll fill you with his emerald green healing light to nurture, soothe, and fulfil you. You’ll notice a drastic reduction in addictive cravings. Repeat this process if needed until the addiction is completely cleared.
Intuitive Astrology Forecast
October is a big month with lots of cosmic shifts and changes. At the start of the month, we will have six planets in retrograde, but by the end we will have only two, signifying a change of pace and a shift in the expression of energy that we are working with.
When many planets retrograde at the same time, as they have been for the last few months, we are encouraged to slow down, reflect, and look back over the past before proceeding ahead.
As a planet shifts out of retrograde however, we get a build-up of forward-moving energy. Things can feel intense as we do away with the past and fully step into the new energies that are waiting for us.
October not only brings a line up of four planets stationing direct but we also experience the annual conjunction of the Sun and Mars.
Mars will travel along with the Sun for most of the month, shining down its high energy influence. Mars is considered the fearless warrior and its energy can bring momentum, motivation, and the desire to act.
As Mars is the planet of energy, we may have to watch our energy levels this month. We may find ourselves feeling burnt out and overwhelmed if we push too hard or use this Mars energy to do just a little too much.
Mars energy can sometimes trigger underlying anger, restlessness, and frustration, so that’s something else to keep in mind all through the month. Be sure you give yourself some healthy outlets if you find yourself starting to feel this way.
The Aries Full Moon on October 20, is also going to offer an intense stream of energy, as it activates a T-Square configuration between the Sun and Mars, the Moon, and the planet of death and rebirth, Pluto.
This is bound to be a highly transformative Full Moon and perhaps one that stirs a big wave of energy in our lives. It seems that things are intensifying and perhaps reaching a breaking point of some kind.
Even though this sounds a little overwhelming, October appears to be a time where we are forced to take action, step up, and make changes.
Think of this energy like the Universe giving you a little push, forcing you to act on something that has most likely needed your attention for some time.
October ends with Halloween, which gets its roots from the pagan festival of Samhain. This is a time where the veil between worlds is believed to be thin, and we can access higher realms with greater ease.
The Pleiades constellation, which is also synonymous with death and rebirth, is also high in the sky at this time of year, which is also said to signify and amplify these Samhain energies.
Let’s take a deeper look into the main cosmic events for October with your October 2021 Astrology Forecast-
October 6- Libra New Moon + Pluto Direct
We have a line up of four cosmic bodies in Libra at the time of this New Moon including the Sun, Moon, Mars, and Mercury. This cluster of planets is known as a stellium and activates strong Libra energy, allowing us to create balance and harmony in our lives with greater ease. We are supported to find the middle ground, especially if we are navigating any conflicts. In fact, due to some harmonious energy surrounding this New Moon, if you are dealing with a tense situation, you may find that everyone is more agreeable and willing to see eye to eye under this energy.
On this day, Pluto also shifts direct after being retrograde since April 27. This is the first in a line up of planets to shift direct over the coming weeks. Pluto Retrograde is a time to reflect on the rebirths in your life. What has been burned away so something new can sprout? You may find that any fertile soil in your life is now ripe and ready to grow. You can read more on this here.
October 7- Sun Conjunct Mars
As the Sun aligns with Mars we receive a boost of energy and motivation. This is a high-energy day where we may feel extra motivated and ready to tackle even the most challenging of projects. As Mars rules over our general energy levels, we may have to be mindful of burning ourselves out or taking on more than we can handle. Mars and the Sun will be in close alignment for most of the month, so even though the energies are strongest on this day, this is really something we are working with for the coming weeks. You can read more on this here.
October 9- Inferior Conjunction of Sun and Mercury Rx
This is an important part of the Mercury Retrograde cycle. At this time, the Sun and Mercury Retrograde align, and we may find ourselves getting some insights into the messages that Mercury has for us. As Mercury travels retrograde, it enters the underworld, delivering messages to us from hidden realms. Pay attention to any signs and clues that Mercury may drop on your path today. Also, this is a good reminder to check in with your intuition – if something feels off, listen.
October 10- Saturn Direct + 10/10 Numerology
Saturn stations direct today after being retrograde since May 23. This brings some more forward-moving energy in our cosmic skies. Saturn Retrograde is a time to revisit the lessons of the past to see what we are willing to stand for and where we may need to create some boundaries. Now that Saturn is Direct, we may find it easier to navigate these areas of our life. We may also find ourselves leveling up in regards to some of our soul lessons. You can read more on this here.
Today also unlocks the Numerology code of 1010, as it’s the 10th day of the 10th month. 1010 represents the power of creation, new beginnings, and infinite potential. It is also a time to focus on shifting out of duality and into a state of oneness. This requires us to let go of any beliefs of good vs. bad and instead approach everything from a place of neutrality. This allows us to keep an open, curious mind that is free from judgment. This energy reminds me of this poem from Rumi- “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” It implies that when we shift out of a black and white or judgemental mind, we can find a fullness to our life journey.
October 17- Jupiter Direct
Jupiter stations direct after being retrograde since June 20. Jupiter Retrograde is a time of expansion, wisdom, and growth. It can bring beliefs and attitudes up to the surface in order to challenge whether they still align with our highest truth. Think about what beliefs or attitudes you may have shed over the coming months, or pay attention to any outdated thoughts or inner dialogue that is no longer serving you. To guide you more in understanding the energies of Jupiter Retrograde, read your full forecast here.
October 17-19- Arcturus Gateway
The Sun aligns with the super star Arcturus, allowing high-frequency energy to beam down to the planet. Arcturus is a star associated with prosperity, abundance, and psychic energies. Arcturus is also believed to be home to an advanced alien race that leads with love and compassion. You can learn more about this magical gateway of energy here.
October 18- Mercury Direct
Mercury stations direct after being retrograde since September 26. Mercury is the planet of communication. When it is in retrograde, Mercury guides us to go within, connect with our subconscious, and source information from hidden realms. Once it turns direct however, we can source information from our external world with greater ease, allowing us to feel clearer and more certain. Keep in mind however, that Mercury will still be a little sluggish until November 2. This period between now and early November is known as the shadow period, and is a time of heightened awareness and intuition. Whatever messages Mercury has needed to unearth for you during its retrograde cycle will now be delivered to you, so pay attention.
October 20- Aries Full Moon + T-Square
Both Mars and Pluto are extremely active under this Full Moon, adding a layer of intensity. Both Mars and Pluto can stir any underlying volatility, bringing it to the surface for clearing and transformation. Pluto’s presence here can also indicate that we may be guided to rebirth an area of our lives in some way. Keep in mind that for a rebirth to occur, something has to be cleared first. The fiery energy of Aries, plus the activity from Mars and Pluto also indicates a strong motivation and desire to act. Be mindful of what is driving your motivation to act- is it love or fear? Mars is the fearless warrior and this is also embodied by Aries energy, so use the vibrations of this Full Moon to conquer your fears and to ride with love in the driver’s seat. While this is an intense Full Moon, it may also bring some closure and endings to situations that have needed your attention for a while.
October 22/23- Scorpio Season
Today, we leave the air sign of Libra and enter into the water sign of Scorpio. Scorpio Season is considered a point of rebirth on the zodiac wheel. We are shedding our skin and allowing ourselves to be reborn as we make our way through the final seasons of the astrological wheel.
October 31- Halloween/Cross-Quarter Day
Halloween gets its roots from the Pagan festival of Samhain, a time of honoring death, rebirth, and our loved ones passed. Samhain is also observed as a cross-quarter day, which is the midway point between the Equinox and the Solstice. You can read more on the spiritual significance of Halloween here.
October 31- Venus and Juno Conjunct in Sagittarius
Venus, the Goddess of Love, and Juno, the Goddess Asteroid of Marriage and Soulmates come into alignment at the end of the month. This is beautiful energy for all matters of the heart. We may feel a stronger desire to connect to those around us, or we may even notice our hearts opening to a greater love. Both Venus and Juno traveling together in our cosmic skies may also shine a spotlight on our relationships and a deeper truth that radiates from deep within our hearts. What is your heart’s desire? If you listen, especially in the coming days, you may just come to realize a higher truth.
