In October 2016 a new inspirational idea is emerging from within you. But do you have the faith and trust in the Universe to support your new idea as it grows?
When it comes to taking action this month, it's the perfect time for volunteering and being of service to others who need your help. Go out and do good in the world!
Watch the Tarot card forecast to discover what's coming up in October 2016 and how to make the most of the month ahead.
Hi, I'm Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the monthly Tarot forecast for October, 2016.
Okay, so I’ve drawn our three cards for this month and I have:
- For our Blessings, the Ace of Wands reversed;
- For our Challenges, the Star reversed; and
- For our Action this month, the Six of Pentacles
So let’s get into it.
Our Blessings – the Ace of Wands reversed – I really like to see reversed cards as internalised energy – something that’s happening within us. So in this case the Ace of Wands is all about the seed of an idea; something new is starting to emerge, and it’s emerging within you. Now you might not be ready to express that to the world around you, but you can definitely feel it inside of you where you’re going: Wow! There’s this possibility here. I don’t know what it is yet; I can’t give it shape and form, but I can feel it inside of me, and it’s growing and growing.
But of course when it’s something that you just don’t know – “I don’t know quite what it is, so I’m not ready to tell others about it” – that’s what you might be feeling, and that’s why we see this in the reversed position.
So that’s your Blessing this month – feeling a new seed of an idea beginning to emerge within you.
Now it’s so important, in order for that seed to really blossom, to really connect in with your intuition, and really feel into that idea; because at such an early stage of the conception of the idea, it would be easy to push that aside and go, “Well, I don’t need to worry about that now. I’ve got so many other things to do.”
But you want to really give it that space so that it can start to grow, and you never know what might emerge from that new idea.
Okay, let’s have a look at our Challenges and we have the Star card reversed.
Now the Star upright is often about faith; hope; knowing the Universe has your back. But often when I see this card in the reversed position, I see it as a sign of lack of hope and a loss of faith that everything will be okay.
And so the Challenge this month might be that you may have encountered some sort of bad luck that has left you feeling like: Oh my goodness, am I really able to get things moving in the way that I want them to? Or am I just in this really bad position where I’m experiencing a lot of bad luck? Has the Universe really got my back?
And so I really feel like this month your trust in the Universe is going to be tested. And you’ve got to understand that in life we go through ups and downs. And even in those times when we’re going through the rough patches, it’s all happening for a reason. And if we can take just a moment to step back and go:
Okay, yes, this is not feeling so great, but why do I think this is happening? What is this teaching me? How is this leading me to the next amazing breakthrough that’s happening in my life.
And remember you’ve got that amazing breakthrough. It’s sitting there with the Ace of Wands reversed. It’s inside of you, but the Universe is saying, “How much do you trust me? Because if you can trust me completely, I’m going to give it to you. You can have exactly what you dream of. But if you start to doubt that trust, you are going to get in your way.”
So that’s really interesting – don’t get in your own way……trust, trust trust!
Okay, so what’s the Action that you can take to make this month an awesome month?
Well, I’ve got the Six of Pentacles.
And I really love this card because it’s all about giving – giving to those people who really need your help. You might do something as simple as volunteering at the local Community House; or helping older people – being friends for older people.
Whatever it might be think about: How can you volunteer some of your time and energy to help others in need?
You might also find that giving energy comes through in other ways. Maybe there’s someone in your workplace who needs a helping hand with a difficult task, and you are happy to go above and beyond to help them.
Maybe this is about spending more time with your children, and helping them with some projects.
Really just think about: How can I give value to somebody else who really needs it, and who values what I have to offer them?
So there you have it. We’ve got an interesting month ahead. We’ve got a really cool idea that is starting to evolve from within, but you’re going to need to trust in the Universe that everything’s happening in its due course. And, really, if you are experiencing any sort of Challenges at the moment, it’s because the Universe is testing your resolve and your resolution: How much do you really want this?
And finally, perhaps as a bit of a distraction, or maybe it’s already intertwined in to what you’re thinking, the Six of Pentacles is about volunteering or giving help to people who need it – being of service to others.
I hope that’s been helpful. I hope you have an awesome month ahead, and I can’t wait to connect with you again in our next monthly Tarot forecast.
