Tarot cards for Aries in October: Seven of Wands, Five of Swords, Eight of Coins

Meaning: Be a hero this Halloween.

Halloween season may bring you a challenging quest to tackle, a conflict to rise above and conquer, a competition which you can win, a test of your valour.

The Seven of Wands and Five of Swords shows there is rivalry, jealousy and competition around you and your position. Others want what you have, and are prepared to make a nuisance of themselves in order to unsettle or dislodge you. Fools! They have under-estimated your courage and resilience.

The Eight of Coins sees you digging in, working hard, keeping your own counsel, and not giving up on your quest. Courage and determination will see them off, win the prize, and confirm your victor status. Be the hero this Halloween and show them who you really are.

Time to escape (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Taurus in October: Six of Swords, Two of Wands, Nine of Coins

Meaning: Escape.

You’ve been undecided about whether to stay in or leave a situation. The Two of Wands has had to umming and aahing for weeks over this, and you’re none the wiser now.

The Six of Swords and Nine of Coins combine to reveal you should make your escape now. You are ready – readier than you think. And the Nine of Coins further reinforces this is the best decision in the long run.

Do a future you a favour and make a choice to move from your current difficult circumstances. Leave them behind. None of this is sustainable or positive. Put it all in your rearview mirror.

Break out of the rut (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Gemini in October: Four of Coins, King of Coins, Judgment

Meaning: Rescue yourself from the quicksand.

Same behaviour = same results. We all know this, and yet we somehow expect things to turn out different in our own lives without an actual conscious shift from us. The Four of Coins reveals you’ve gotten into a rut somehow.

Don’t let the quicksand take you under this Halloween, Gemini! The King of Coins reveals this repetitive nightmare occurs either around your home, work, money or health. You’ve just gotten stuck in a moment, in a rut, in a routine that does not serve you well.

Judgment brings you a wake-up call. A moment of clarity when you see this situation as it is, and resolve to make those actual conscious shifts to end it once and for all. The scales fall from your eyes, and you see clearly how you can change. Different behaviour = different results.

Halloween can be romantic too (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Cancer in October: Knight of Wands, Three of Coins, King of Cups

Meaning: Love fortunes

You have admirers and future suitors who are appreciating you from afar and may make their move this spooky season. Love thrives around Halloween, the Victorians elevated this season as a time to make love spells, potions and fortunes.

The Three of Coins reveals the hidden admirers, and the Knight of Wands and King of Cups show that this person could be a life-long, happy-ever-after person in your love life. And if you’re already attached then it might point to a new, deep friendship emerging in your world instead.

Look for Water and Fire signs (Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Leo, Aries, Sagittarius) and expect to feel an immediate soul mate connection with them – like a past life vibe.

Tarot cards for Leo in October: The Lovers, Two of Coins, Six of Cup

Meaning: Priorities.

Playing the field is a state of affairs that comes naturally to you because you have major FOMO. The Two of Coins sees you entering a whirlwind of activity and social entertainment. You are in demand and determined not to pass by any opportunity to be seen.

The Lovers and Six of Cups reveal there will be a price to pay here, and it’s the potential of damaging relationships because you’re seen as being non-committal or too distracted by other people or events.

Now that you’ve had this heads up, make sure you know where your priorities lie, before the busy days begin, and make sure you stay true to that as your calendar fills up. Don’t annoy the trusted old for the shiny new.

Time to look inward (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Virgo in October: Nine of Swords, Two of Swords, Ace of Swords

Meaning: Facing fears.

Some people think that Virgos are a complex mixture of both hating themselves whilst at the same time thinking they’re better than everyone else. Harsh words, but maybe there’s a grain of truth there. A trio of swords cards this October sure hints you’ll be doing some powerful self-analysis.

The Ace, Two and Nine of Swords combine to compel you to speak up and express your greatest fears and hidden truths. Halloween is a time of scares, but ghosts and ghouls are nothing compared to the private fears your brain makes you replay over and over… ENOUGH!

Exorcise your demons, Virgo, and spill the tea on all of your worries with a trusted confidant, or even a journal. This will lead to a lightening of the load, a clearing of the air, and a brightening of your mood. In such a better headspace, you can go on to make important decisions that fix the (very few) real fears you have to face.

Keep your friends close (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Libra in October: Eight of Wands, The Devil, Knight of Coins

Meaning: Play safe.

Something wicked this way comes, Libra, with The Devil card this Halloween. Could it actually be your own inner devil? Maybe…

The Eight of Wands and Knight of Coins show that you will be tempted to say more than you should this month, to go out and mingle more with people that maybe you’re not entirely 100% safe with too. I don’t mean at risk of something dangerous, but just that they are perhaps not as discreet as you, or that they don’t have your best interests at heart.

Resist the urge to people-please, Libra. It’s your one flaw, and it gets you into hot water. Just be you. Don’t flatter or cajole. Don’t hang out with those you don’t trust. Don’t pursue temptations you know come with a price later. Heed your instincts, be guarded when in doubt, stick close to those you already love and like.

Something lovely this way comes (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Scorpio in October: The Star, Page of Wands, Five of Cups

Meaning: Silver lining.

Turn a frown upside down, Scorpio. It’s a strange saying, isn’t it, but the gist is that something you thought was negative is going to turn out to have a big silver lining, and you need to be on alert ready to spot it.

The Five of Cups shows that you’ve endured a setback or loss recently, and still feel sad about it. The Page of Wands has you, in your usual style, pushing past it and looking ahead and trying new things to replace the gap or kickstart your plans again. Good for you.

The Star reveals that a major silver lining to your loss will emerge. And you must see it. This gap in your life is about to be filled by something magical, positive, loving and real. Something that renews your appreciation for yourself and your life. Prepare to be amazed.

Sagittarius, take the wheel (Picture: Getty/

Tarot cards for Sagittarius in October: The Emperor, The Wheel of Fortune, Queen of Coins

Meaning: Master of destiny

Powerful forces emerge in your world this month, Sagittarius, with The Emperor and The Wheel of Fortune. I feel like you’re transforming into a strong and purposeful master of your own destiny, and major changes are going to be set in motion this month. You’re taking the wheel.

The Queen of Coins reveals this surge of power and control comes in the areas of your life that are material- health, work, money and home. You are feeling like you have a plan now, a vision, of where you’re headed and you can see the steps you need to take. You’re taking ownership of your life and your destiny. It feels empowering.

One major change, instigated by you, will set the wheels in motion this October. Take a deep breath, and make a bold leap. It’s going to be great.

Pay attention to your closest relationship (Picture: Getty Images/iStockphoto)

Tarot cards for Capricorn in October: Two of Cups, Queen of Wands, Knight of Sword

Meaning: Power struggle

Relationships take work and attention – you know this as truth because you know everything in life requires work and attention, and you’re good at both.

The Two of Cups sees your focus falling onto your closest relationship this month. Could be romantic, family or friendship (but romance tops the list). The Queen of Wands and Knight of Swords reveal that a power dynamic has de-stabilised and both of you are vying for control or dominance in a way that has become a bit stressful.

Find the catalyst and root cause that disturbed your vibe together. Look back at when things started to get tetchy, or what it is you feel in conflict about, where do the arguments start. Try and reposition this as you team up to fight for the relationship and tackle the issue, vs fighting each other. Share what you think. Ask how they feel. Open up the dialogue. You can resolve this.

Play fair (Picture: Getty Images/iStockphoto)

Tarot cards for Aquarius in October: Justice, Four of Wands, Five of Coin

Meaning: Fairness.

Do the right thing even when no one’s looking, or seems bothered, and you’ll reap rewards down the line, Aquarius.

The Five of Coins sees you ruminating over an injustice done to you in the past, and it has the potential to distort your natural good sense of fairness. Don’t let it. I urge you to play fairly yourself because Justice reveals this past event will soon be rectified, and you’ll be vindicated. Don’t damage your conscience, or anyone else, by trying to get payback or acting in a way that isn’t entirely ethical. There is no justification, and you’ll only hurt yourself.

The Four of Wands reveals that acting with integrity now will reap rewards for you down the line. Even though you think no one is watching, karma is. She sees all. And she’s taking notes. So, play fair even when life isn’t.

Tarot cards for Pisces for October: Page of Coins, Ace of Coins, Three of Swords

Meaning: Review the past.

I want you to think of yourself as a student of your own life this month, Pisces, an academic in the topic of YOU.

The Page and Ace of Coins reveal that you’ve got a backlog of events to reviews which can all yield useful, interesting and future-facing insights and life lessons. This Halloween, let yourself be ~haunted~ by ghosts of your past! The Three of Swords points you in the direction of betrayals, wounds and painful splits. Go back now, with objective hindsight, and look again at what happened.

This is NOT about wallowing in misery. For starters, these events are old news and don’t hurt as they once did. Secondly, you have the opportunity to glean such useful insight from looking again. Ask what you did, what you missed, what you’ve learnt, and how you can apply this in the future.
