Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the crisp cool nights, fuzzy sweaters, hot cups of teas and cuddle time with my pets. October is especially exciting as it’s when we celebrate Samhain, more commonly known and understood as Halloween.
It also marks the busiest time of year for small business owners as we prepare for the holidays. I’m already in burnout mode and it’s not a good look. I need to seriously step up my self-care.
That is why I’ve created an October self-care calendar. I’ll be sharing what I’m doing each day on Instagram in hopes that it encourages you to do the same. Business owner or not, I find we all could use some extra intention around self-love right now. As spiritual humans we need to make sure our cup is full before we can go out and do good in the world.
We wrap this month up with a killer workshop on Friday, October 29 with Madam Adam. It’s focus? Self-care of course. He’ll be teaching us all about the Empress and how to embody her wisdom to nurture and soothe our souls. Sign-up here!
Much love and extra TLC being sent your way.
Libra October Tarotscope
(Sep 23-Oct 22) – The Fool
The innocence of the Fool always reminds of a three-year-old. It’s honestly my favorite age. It’s when kids learn about jokes and also start to establish their independence. Their favorite question: “Why?!” You gotta admit, when they ask “why” about certain things and you try to answer you sometimes stop and are like “yeah, this is ridiculous. Why do we do this?!” Bring that inner child with you everywhere this month. Get curious. Get questioning. Nothing is ever as it seems. We are constantly reinventing ourselves, our identity and the reality which surrounds us. It’s easy to get lost in the emotional constructs and restrictions that our society has so firmly agreed upon. We’re taught a lot of “you can’t do that” or “you’re too old” or “no one will ever take you seriously.” Use these false beliefs as your rock fuel to propel you forward into the fourth dimension of existence where anything, absolutely anything, is possible. You have so many delightful things to offer the world and unfortunately we all get stunted so easily. I wish the opposite was true. But instead of holding our breath until that day comes, please take anything said with a grain of salt. Embrace that all knowing inner kid with all that you got and start making waves. You’ll be glad you did
Scorpio October Tarotscope
(Oct 23-Nov 22) – High Priestess
Watery Scorpio, you love to go deep and this month you’re given the opportunity to bring this skill to your spiritual studies. The High Priestess holds the keys to the Akashic Records. She knows all the secrets of the universe. She’ll happily whisper them in your ear, only if she feels you’re prepared to use the knowledge for good. Will you heed her call? Answer her requests? She might throw some small tests at you before she’s willing to show you more. These often show up in a place we like to call our intuition. Has yours been ignored? The High Priestess doesn’t appreciate it when you don’t listen to your Highest Self. I mean it is, after all, the place within which she resides. This omnipresent Goddess only wants what’s best for your greatest good. This month make sure you’re taking extra time to honor her and connect with her wishes. This can be done most easily through meditation and prayer. I like to keep it simple most days. You can wake up and say “Please” as in “please show me the way” and you can retire each evening with “Thank you” as in “thank you for your guidance”. Little ways to honor this grand dame of infinite knowledge goes a long way. I can’t wait to see what secrets she’ll reveal to you in the coming days.
Sagittarius October Tarotscope
(Nov 23-Dec 20) – Three of Cups
Sagittarius, one of the reasons I love you is your free spirit. However, when does that alone time officially become isolation? This month you are encouraged to make camaraderie, community and companionship your goals. We often think we can do it better by ourselves, but nothing could be further from the truth. The patriarchy is a living, breathing example of the divine masculine out of balance. Competition is a false belief based upon fear. We’re all playing for the same team and we get so much further when we prioritize collaboration over solidarity. Take some time to think about a way you could go out of your way to show support for someone in your field. Better yet, find something fun to do together that will benefit you both.
Capricorn October Tarotscope
(Dec 22 – Jan 20) – Knight of Cups
The love train has arrived and it’s pulling into your station Capricorn. Knights have so much powerful energy and are always on the move. When the Knight of Cups rides into town he’s always got extra love to spread around as he canters off with his trusty steed. What will you do to spread the love? Have you been a bit self-involved lately? (I mean, haven’t we all?) Now is the time to reach out to those you love, maybe even those you don’t love, to do mental health checks. See how you can help. Invite an old friend over for dinner and make them some delicious comfort food. Buy a silly greeting card at the pharmacy and send it to someone you don’t know that well just to let them know you’re thinking about them. And most importantly, get to know your love language and the love language of those you hold dear. Do you value acts of service? Gifts? Quality time? Affection? Affirmations? All of the above? Usually we have one that means the most to us. Start to recognize what you need to fill your cup and how you can best fill others’.
Aquarius October Tarotscope
(Jan 21-Feb 19) – Nine of Cups
This Nine of Cups is giving me disco dancing vibes for some reason. Probably because that energy is electric. It makes me want to boogie! The Nine of Cups is always a welcomed card in a tarot reading. It indicates a period of emotional contentment often brought on by gifts from the universe. What good fortune will the cosmos bring your way this month? Often it isn’t splashy as our Guides like to keep things on the down low. However, if you look a little bit more closely you’ll see all these tiny miracles around you each and every day this month. Small offerings from the Gods to make sure that you know they are there supporting you every step of the way. What will you do with this sense of spiritual enlightenment and overall good vibes? Will you bring in others to join the party? Try to move immediately in action? Or will you do your best to drop into the moment? I suggest the latter. The Nine of Cups is always a lovely space to be and nothing, absolutely nothing, is permanent. Enjoy the now and soak in all those powerful energetic rays.
Pisces September Tarotscope
(Feb 20-Mar 20) – Two of Cups
Love is in the air Pisces and it’s feeling quite romantic. The two of cups is a time when we’ve truly learned how to love ourselves so deeply that our cup runneth over. We start to explore the duality of relationships. What it means to love and be loved. Crafted from the same source, we are all simply mirrors. Falling in love is falling in love with our reflection. Someone who reflects back all the best parts of ourselves. And while you might not be in a romantic relationship at this moment, it’s still an important concept to contemplate as you engage with other citizens of the world. What are others reflecting back to you? Is there a lot of chaotic drama that swirls around you? Is that a reflection of your energy or theirs? Is there peace and serenity? How are you greeted? How do you greet others? Next time you sit down with someone imagine they are YOU, simply in a different form. How would you talk to yourself? How DO you talk to yourself? And is that reflected in real time?
Aries October Tarotscope
(Mar 21-Apr 19) – Eight of Wands
The time is NOW. The Eight of Wands is always about forward momentum, action and change. Are you ready to embrace all the delightful shifts that come your way this month? You get to choose how the experience feels. There seems to be a general consensus that change is difficult, but I would like to challenge that assumption. What if change was always exciting? Helpful? Productive? Fun? Change is here to shake things up and help us learn and grow. Could you imagine a world where nothing changed? Imagine how bored you’d be! Start dropping into how you are assessing and speaking about various situations. When something unexpected happens this month I suggest the first thing out of your mouth is “Oh, isn’t that interesting?” Maybe even write the phrase down on a sticky note and put it near your computer. That way when things totally don’t go your way you can simply giggle as you speak the affirmation out loud. Sometimes the universe needs to shake things up to get your attention. Get curious and get wild. There is always something fascinating right around the corner.

Taurus October Tarotscope
(Apr 20 – May 20) — Nine of Pentacles
In case you didn’t get the memo, imposter syndrome is so last year. This is a time in life where modesty is not the frontrunner. No, not even the humble brag will do. This month I want you to embrace who you are in all your glory. The nine of pentacles is here to offer safety, stability and good fortune. Don’t you dare try to shoo away your accomplishments with a “Oh, I didn’t do much” or “Oh thanks, wouldn’t be here without you.” Instead a simple thank you will do when someone tries to complement your many achievements. Embrace this feeling of safety and security in the material world and see how deeply rooted you are in the garden of infinite abundance. Mother Nature rules the suit of Pentacles and she always provides. We’re the ones who create lack when our brains move into fear or self-doubt. Start trusting the Universe has your back and it always will. It’s a good vibe to get into this month. I’m excited for you.
Gemini October Tarotscope
(May 21-June 20) — Ten of Swords
The bad news is that I pulled the ten of swords for you this month. The good news is that you get to choose how to respond to this energy. The ten of swords is the card of melodrama and anguish, however more often than not it belongs to those around you. It’s not your predicament to figure out. This month be careful with your energy and be mindful of whom you surround yourself with. As an empath, be sure to practice daily ground cord meditations and set some serious boundaries. Did you know that the word “No” all by itself is a complete sentence? Feel free to extricate yourself from situations that make you uncomfortable. Being polite is so yesteryear. And here’s the thing with boundaries for people who don’t have any: it’s going to create conflict. People might throw a tantrum or two when you start marking the line, but don’t let it deter you. Pretend they are an emotional infant who is just having a big cry. A toddler might not like to sit in a car seat, but we set the boundary that they have to sit in one if they’d like to ride in the car…even if it means listening to them scream. So buckle up and do your best to smile. This too shall pass and you’ll be better for it.
Cancer October Tarotscope
(Jun 22-July 23) – Strength
Courage is never about the absence of fear. It’s about feeling the fear and doing it anyway. That is your vibe this month Cancer. Welcome the fear in and greet it with a hello. Hell, even ask it what it wants. But when the time is right, kindly remind it to leave and move right along. You have very important things to do in this world. Fear is simply us playing Goddess. I mean we’re trying to predict the future and we’ve given it a very negative slant. If you’re going to pick up a story, pick up a good one! And if you’re about to embark on something risky or dive deep into the unseen, just remind yourself of how you’ve gotten here. All these years you’ve been showing up, doing the next right thing, telling the fear to scram and doing what you love anyway. And so far, it’s been working out. Use that reference point to remind yourself of what a badass you are. You’re stronger than you think you are and you can handle anything. The Guides are unbelievably proud of you and how you show up in the world. Trust that is always the message of the Strength card. They want you to know, “Keep going.”
Leo October Tarotscope
(Jul 24 – Aug 23) – The Lovers
Ever wonder if the Big Bang was simply a giant heartbreak? Maybe at one point everything was one and the same and there was some type of disagreement…then BOOM. Duality was created. Light versus dark, clarity versus deception, reality versus illusion. The Lovers encourage us to embrace this state of existence rather than try to resist it. You might absolutely hate something and try to run away from it. What if you stopped and examined it a bit further this time? The Lovers usually references romantic love as in the duality of a passionate relationship we get to test these dual concepts all the time. There is always opposition between parties no matter how healthy and happy the couple. The deepening exists in how the conflict is addressed. Can you honor and experience both perspectives at the same time?

Virgo October Tarotscope
(Aug 24-Sep 22) – Page of Pentacles
It’s all about that money mindset for you this month, sweet Virgo. The page of any of the suits is always the eager apprentice ready to embark on a profound understanding of the suit’s essence. The pentacles rule the element of earth and therefore anything we hold dear in this three-dimensional reality that is considered material. It’s associated with career, resources and finances. The Page of Pentacles is ready to learn new ways of interacting with the energy of money. This October I encourage you to build a money altar as a way of getting to know money on a whole new level. Create a sacred space, thank the universe for all your blessings and find a gorgeous small receptible. Put dollars, coins and other other items you associate with abundance in the bin. Perhaps you even want to pull the Page of Pentacles from one of your tarot decks and place him here as well. Light a candle. Set an intention. Honor the flow. Welcome it in. Give thanks to all the wonderful things it’s given you so far. And just in these tiny actions you’ll open the door to a whole new experience with the energetics of money. It’ll be magical to witness how you shift and grow in this space.
