Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
A cat drinking milk. It’s time to nourish yourself. By taking care of yourself first, it’s easier to feel safe in a relationship. When you feel safe, you can be strong, but also open. Give yourself lots of empathy. Spend quality time with yourself. Ask yourself what you really need and how you really feel, so that you can truly open up your heart in relationship with others. Only you have the power to convince yourself that you are safe to create intimacy in a relationship with another person.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising 
Picking your way along a rocky mountain path. You are negotiating your way. You need to keep your mind on the details. If you try to look too far ahead, you might miss a step and fumble. But at the same time, you must remain hopeful and balanced. You are on the right path. You are exactly where you need to be. Just stay present in the moment and take care of the business at hand.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising 
A clear pond, the water is so still that you can see your reflection. Look at your reflection in the watery mirror. You are unique. Your individuality is perfect. But this isn’t just a regular mirror, it’s a pond— a symbol of the creative and intuitive water element. This symbol means that you must trust yourself as a unique individual and you must trust your creative expression. You must let your creativity and intuition lead right now. Express yourself and enjoy yourself. That action will help you choose your next steps.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Two snakes wrapped around Hermes’ staff— the caduceus. You are being invited to find the stability between two opposites— the physical and the spiritual worlds. This may be a time of emotional healing and stabilizing. You must be willing to go deeper into emotional analysis than is usually comfortable or expected. Find way to integrate your expectations for yourself in the physical (professional) world with your emotional needs. Maybe this means you embark on a deep investigation of your emotional health with a therapist or trusted friend, or maybe it means you begin a meditation practice. Look for balance within.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising 
Petals showering down from the branches of a flowering tree. A gust of wind releases fragrant and beautiful flower petals. It’s time to bring in more air element, so that you can have brilliant new experiences. In astrology, the air element represents mental and social connections. Open up to new learning and new social groups. Get out and circulate. Talk about your ideas. Become curious about other people’s stories. Tell your own stories in a new way. Make new connections so that you can experience fresh beauty in the world.

Aries :: Aries Rising
A leopard behind a rock. Waiting silently. Ready to pounce. Even if you are the hunter and not the hunted, there is always a risk. If the leopard wins, new resources have been won. But if the leopard misses, she is potentially exposed to unseen danger and hunger. This is an interesting symbol to interpret because it’s about taking some risks to increase your stability. Usually risk and stability don’t show up in the same sentence. But this time they do. What do you need to risk so that your stability is enhanced? It may be that the risk is emotional.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Looking out at the landscape. Fields and hills stretch far into the distance. This is your time to get centered in who you are and what you need. Do away with self-doubt. Really. There’s no reason for it. You don’t need to fear. You are capable of doing everything you want to do. Maybe the last 6 months have taught you that. You can trust that the choices which have got you here were sound. Orient yourself in a moment of confidence and then look ahead to define your vision for the future.

Lined notebook paper. Get serious and start taking notes. It may be time to stretch your mind through writing, reading, learning, or some kind of academic study. You have a manifesto to create.

Libra :: Libra Rising
A doe blends into the forest. Have you been keeping yourself camouflaged? Have you been hiding out? Hiding some part of yourself from the world? It’s time to step out into a new leadership role. Notice where you’ve been trying to blend in. It may be that the emotional cost of being seen feels high. But what’s the emotional cost of hiding? The truth about life is that it’s a series of transitions. From birth, to maturity, to death. You are always in a state of transformation. You have to stop hiding so that your transformation can be witnessed by others.

Libra :: Libra Rising
Seated in meditation. The hardest thing to do right now is to be patient. But that is what you must do. You must be patient in your relationships. Be patient in your vision of yourself and who you are becoming. Incubate a feeling of serenity in your heart. This is important because you are in a moment primed for heartfelt explosions or ultimatums. An outburst might be cathartic, but it won’t help you align with your underlying goals. Let the feelings flow but practice patience in your reactions.

A dancing flame. Let a smile play around the corner of your lips. You get to be here. You get to experience this body, this time, this incarnation.

Nothing ever has to be more complicated than this key phrase, “I am.” Of course, it often is more complicated than that because life is designed to be a maze of experience, learning and creative challenge. But for today, find vibrant satisfaction in the idea that you are here and that is good.

Elephants walking in a line. Like a scene from the movie Fantasia, a kaleidoscope of symbols spiral and then morph into new shapes.

Buckle up, divination divas. As we prepare to take on the dark side of the year, let these tarot cards for October 2017 help you face your fears and break on through, says Melinda Lee Holm.

As Fall brings a shift in the light, we are crossing through the veil into the collective and individual subconscious for some major breakthroughs.

October offers the opportunity to treat the dive into the dark side like a gift, as we expand our understanding, birth our passion projects, face our deepest fears, and learn to be better partners.

The energy this month is tailor-made to get you out of your comfort zone and into the fast lane. Buckle up!

:: 10/9 Indigenous People’s —9 of Pentacles :: 

Many cities across the U.S. have transformed what was formerly Columbus Day into Indigenous People’s Day, and this shift is the result of decades of work to raise awareness of and appreciation for the history and experience of the indigenous people in the land we now call home.

The 9 of Pentacles helps deepen our awareness of this experience. This card represents an accomplishment in the Earthly world, a recognition of the fruits of our labor, and an understanding of how we have been transformed by our experiences. But with this knowledge comes an awareness that what we have learned demands that we learn even more. We are driven to push ahead towards an ever more profound understanding of our world and ourselves.

Calling in the 9 of Pentacles: 

  • Use tea tree oil on your body or in your home – it clears confusion, in addition to being a great antiseptic
  • Read a work of non-fiction
  • Dress foods with mustard – mustard seed promotes the courage and perseverance needed to learn and integrate challenging information
  • Keep African violets in your home to attract grounded wisdom

:: 10/10 Jupiter Enters Scorpio—Queen of Cups :: 

As Jupiter begins its transit through Scorpio, we’re in for 13 months of majorly deep dives into the desires we wish to expand. This is BIG DEAL energy for pushing hard to get passion projects up and running. The trick is, with the potential sting of Scorpio’s tail, we have to be sure that what we pursue is truly in alignment with our hearts.

The Queen of Cups has a masterful devotion to her passion. She knows her emotional self completely and is comfortable with all aspects of her emotional field. This makes her able to skillfully identify what is in perfect alignment with her heart and leaves her free to dive completely into that project and care for it as she would a child.

Choose wisely and give of yourself completely. This is a potent time.

Calling in the Queen of Cups: 

  • Drink linden tea to fearlessly open the heart and follow its lead
  • Wear or carry Ruby to inspire passionate devotion to a goal or project
  • Eat legumes – plant the seeds of success in yourself via proverbial “magic beans”
  • Dress with intention – as the saying goes, fake it til you make it

>>>

:: 10/13 Friday the 13th—The Moon :: 

Getting a Friday the 13th in October is truly a gift for fans of the spooky and macabre. Long considered an unlucky day in the U.S., it is embraced and celebrated by those with a flair for the dark side. Today, take a cue from the goths and learn to love what scares you.

The Moon card is a great ally for stepping out of the day to day and into the murky darkness of the subconscious. This card is all about major growth through facing fears, and trusting our intuition and instincts to lead us safely through the wild unknown. It’s time to be brave and embrace the monster in the closet once and for all.

Calling in The Moon: 

  • Cook with Cumin to exorcise any superstitions holding you back
  • Watch a scary movie
  • Eat pomegranate seeds – they were Persephone’s key to thriving in the Underworld
  • Wear or carry Moonstone

>>>

:: 10/22 Mars Enters Libra—8 of Swords :: 

Mars, planet of action, drive, and desire, enters the sign of partnership on the 22nd and stays until December 9th, putting a focus on harmony in all our relations with others. But with Mars’ fierce determination, there is a danger of becoming so fixated on harmony that we’re willing to bend the truth to get it. 

Avoid sacrificing clarity for comfort with the 8 of Swords. This card brings a lesson in cutting out the chatter and getting grounded in what truly matters. This chatter can come from the opinions of others, societal norms, and internalized rules about how we should or should not think, feel, and behave. Get grounded, get clear, and be true to yourself in order to keep your relationships strong.

Calling in the 8 of Swords: 

  • Wear or carry Fluorite to maintain clarity in your intentions
  • Season food or drinks with lime juice – lime promotes fidelity and peace
  • Write ‘morning pages’ daily (3 handwritten stream-of-consciousness pages) to clear the internal chatter before you start your days
  • Burn myrrh resin or incense to create a peaceful atmosphere
