If you're reading this, that means you were guided here, and this message was made specifically for you! For this reading, I gathered my favorite crystals to help with clarity and brought in the feeling of autumn with my favorite pumpkin spice candle. I settled in with my deck, asked spirit for guidance, and tapped into the collective energy for a message. Using a basic 3 card spread, I was able to get a comprehensive look into the energies surrounding the month of October. Combining all of their meanings and using my intuition, I formed the following message to help guide you through the month.
October promises to be filled with an abundance of both emotional and material wealth. However, some might be easily distracted by drama and moodiness that threatens to keep spirits low. Read on to discover how to navigate the month of October so that you can make the most of the energy for the month.
The Queen of Pentacles
The Queen of Pentacles represents having your finances balanced and in order while still keeping things together at home. She is often seen as a mother figure but can be interpreted as any person who nurtures and cares for their family. The Queen has everything together. She’s an amazing parent and works hard but still finds time to love and care for her family. This card can represent someone who has accomplished their goals without sacrificing family time or emotional well-being.
This month, the focus is on balance. The Queen of Pentacles shows that it is possible to succeed financially while still caring for and nurturing your family. Think about how you can navigate all of your responsibilities while still making time for your loved ones. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work and making money. But don’t forget that it’s possible to do both. If you’ve been trying to strike a balance between work and your personal life, this is the month to do it!
Additionally, this card asks you to think about how you can share your abundance with others. The Queen loves to care for the people in her life. And when we share, we’re actually able to manifest more great things! So how can you nurture and share your wealth this month? It doesn’t have to be with money. You can also consider sharing your time, as the people who love you will simply enjoy being in your presence.
Sometimes the Queen can represent someone entering your life who provides you with some sort of guidance. This could be a teacher, counselor, or simply a good friend who gives you the perfect advice at just the right time. If you’re looking for love or a business partner, keep an eye out for someone with the qualities of the Queen of Pentacles coming into your life.
The King of Cups Reversed
Upright, The King of Cups represents being emotionally balanced, diplomatic, and secure. So, when the card is reversed, it’s a sign that you might be struggling with your feelings. This card appears when you’re more emotional and moodier than usual. It also means that you might give in to drama more easily. Being moody isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We all face ups and downs when it comes to our emotions. However, it’s important to know how to use it as a strength instead of letting it get the best of you. This card tells you to be mindful and aware of what is going on around you in terms of how you’re feeling and the situations in your day-to-day life that might be causing you to feel stuck or unhappy.
It’s easy to be hard on yourself when you’re feeling down. We often feel like we shouldn’t have “negative” feelings. This gives us the tendency to either explode or repress – both of which aren’t great for our mental health. Our emotions are what guides us through life. Instead of having a knee-jerk reaction to feeling upset, annoyed, or angry, allow yourself to go inward and actually feel what you’re feeling before you react. This will help you understand the core of how you’re feeling and help you find actual solutions instead of giving in to drama and causing an even bigger mess.
Those of you looking to call in a new partner should be wary of this energy especially. The reversed King of Cups can be a warning that you’re acting selfishly and not putting in enough effort to welcome someone new into your life. Take this as a sign to pay attention to how you’re treating others, especially if it’s a new love prospect.
On the bright side of this card, you’ll find the ability to more easily access your innermost feelings and find strength and more control over your emotions. This month would be a beautiful time for you to begin journaling or to pick up a self-help book to really help sort through things that might be holding you back from expressing yourself.
Ten of Pentacles
The Ten of Pentacles speaks to having an abundance of everything your heart desires. You have a sense of safety, comfort, and stability in your life. When the Ten of Pentacles appears, it’s a reminder that all the hard work you’ve done is starting to pay off. This is a card about security in all levels of life as it covers health, finances, family, career, and worldly possessions.
This card also echoes the Queen of Cups as it’s a reminder to spend some time focusing on family and loved ones this month. Abundance spans beyond material wealth. Remember that you have an abundance of love surrounding you, be that from a close friend, your partner, or even a pet! When you find gratitude for the things you already have, you open your heart to bring in even more amazing things.
Following the emotional reversed King of Cups, this card serves as a reminder to look around and root yourself in gratitude for all of the things that you have. When our emotions take over, it’s easy to get distracted by how we’re feeling and forget about the pure abundance surrounding us. Harness the energy of the Queen of Pentacles, whose grounded energy and confidence help her move through the ups and downs with ease and grace.
For those looking to advance in work or their businesses, this card signals that you’re supported in whatever you do, especially the things that bring you wealth. All the effort you’ve put in hasn’t gone unnoticed, and you’ll be rewarded for your hard work. Everything might fall into place; all you have to do is make the most of any opportunities that present themselves.
The month of October promises to be filled with an abundance of not only material wealth but of love, but only if you look for it. There might be moments where you get caught up in feeling overly emotional and moody. Remember that it’s important to express your feelings, but do not get caught up in wallowing in your bad mood. You’re surrounded by so many things to be grateful for, and being in this gratitude will help you manifest even more things to be grateful for!
