Hi! I'm Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the monthly Tarot forecast for October 2016.
Blessings: Ace of Wands, reversed
Our Blessings for this month is the Ace of Wands, reversed. I really like to see reversed cards as internalized 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, "Oh, there's this possibility here! I don't know what it is yet, I can't give it shape or 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 quite what it is, you're not quite ready to tell others about it. That's what you might be feeling. And that's why we see this in the reversed position. It's so important, in order for that seed to really blossom, to really connect with your intuition, and really feel into that idea.
Challenges: The Star, reversed
Okay, let's look at our Challenges. We have The Star card, reversed. The Star card upright is often about faith, hope, knowing that the universe has got your back. But often when I see this card in the reversed position, I see it as a sign of lack of hope and loss of faith that everything will be okay.
So the challenge this month might be that you've 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 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?"
Your trust in the universe is going to be tested. 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 take a step back and go, “Okay, yep, this is not feeling so great, but why is this happening? What is this teaching me? How is this leading me to the next amazing breakthrough in my life?”
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. Don't get in your own way -- trust, trust, trust.
Advice: Six of Pentacles
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.
Think about how you can really volunteer some of your time and energy to help others in need. You might 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?"
We've got an interesting month ahead. We've got a really great 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, finally, perhaps as a bit of a distraction (or maybe it's already intertwined into 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 you have an awesome month ahead, and I can't wait to connect with you again in our next monthly Tarot forecast.
