Hello, Scorpio season!
This transformative, powerful, and emotionally attuned zodiac season rolls in on the 23rd, kicking our week off. But we’re sure that this astrological event is one that most of us could have predicted.
So, what else then? Well, we’ll also be gifted the opportunity for financial and material breakthroughs in the form of the Lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 28th. Say goodbye to blocks and obstacles and hello to an honest check-in with what you really want.
In order to make the most of this energy, we’ve consulted the Tarot to see what it has to say about your week ahead.
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for October 23 – 29, 2023
Aries, this week has the potential to be a purely magical one.
After all, you have The Magician here to guide you. With its light guiding the way, you may feel more inspired, entrepreneurial, and ready for action right now.
The catch? The Magician isn’t… well, just about the magic. It’s focused on the person performing the magic for a reason! You need to be open to taking charge and actually seizing this go-getter spirit in order for it to mean anything significant.
What will you commit to creating this week?
Taurus, it’s time to find some balance and recalibrate.
This week’s astrological events may generally offer abundance and progress, but for Taurus, that’ll all likely start with some rethinking.
Justice demands that your thoughts and priorities are in order. You need to have a good grip on what’s really important and make way for those priorities tangibly in your schedules and routines.
Be honest and serious about what matters most right now, and let your mind (not impulse) lead you to clarity.
8 of Wands
Gemini is continuing their bright, progress-focused streak this week.
The 8 of Wands brings momentum and a speedy pace to everything it touches. If you aren’t paying attention, this week may zip by without you even getting a chance to process any of it.
Communication, travels, and making strong headway in creative projects and new ventures are all heightened and supported during this time.
Ride that wave, staying open-minded and self-motivated, and you’ll have a grand time, Gemini.
The Emperor (Reversed)
Cancer, now is not the time for rash or important decisions.
Although The Emperor reversed may make you antsy to call the shots and put you in conflict with other authority or leadership figures in your life, that doesn’t mean you should seize the throne in a dramatic fashion right now.
Alternatively, some Cancerians may see this energy reflect within their own insecurities, calling into question their own capabilities and self-confidence.
No matter how it ultimately manifests, this is your sign to slow down, listen to your own feelings, and let things settle before trying anything big.
Ace of Swords (Reversed)
Leo, it’s time to pummel through some blocks and barriers… even if they don’t seem to be very tangible.
The Ace of Swords is usually a great sign for fresh ideas and clean slates, opening up our minds to new possibilities.
But the reversal of this card may create blockages, suddenly making you feel like your vision is cloudy and complicating your ability to speak up and make decisions.
Finding an outlet that will help you find stillness (like journaling or meditation) may help you break through these blockages.
3 of Cups (Reversed)
Virgo, your relationships are coming to the forefront… and it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
The 3 of Cups reversed indicates that miscommunications are on the rise this week. It may be harder to feel seen and understood by loved ones, and making new connections (especially in group settings) will be especially difficult.
In times when no one is truly seeing one another’s heart clearly, it’s best to take some time away to cool down and let the dust settle. There is no need to force anything that isn’t there.
7 of Cups
Libra has some important decisions to make.
With a reputation for indecision, Libras are very ironically finding themselves in that exact predicament this week.
The 7 of Cups creates foggy energy in your heart and intuition, noting that there may be a variety of options and ideas on the table, but it’s seemingly impossible to know which ones to actually pursue.
Remember: sometimes, the “right choice” is just making a choice (rather than sitting in stagnancy and discomfort).
5 of Swords
Scorpio, just because the world is falling into chaos doesn’t mean that you have to, too.
The 5 of Swords raises a temptation of choosing foul play, conflict, and, to be frank, often quite toxic behavior.
You may have the opportunity to play dirty, gossip, or gain the upper hand this week through unsavory means… but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should take that opportunity.
Remember who you truly are in your heart, Scorpio.
Page of Wands
Sagittarius, it’s time to embrace your silly, youthful, and adventurous self.
This doesn’t mean you need to run entirely on impulse, but we do recommend loosening up and approaching life with a more open-minded, open-hearted approach right now.
It should be easy for someone as radiant and adaptable as Sagittarius — all you need to do is connect with a part of yourself that already exists!
10 of Cups (Reversed)
Capricorn is known to have high standards, sometimes holding themselves to truly unreachable expectations.
This week, the 10 of Cups reversed hints that you may be depriving yourself of contentment and joy by placing these kinds of expectations upon yourself.
Remember: the astrological events of this week spotlight productivity in abundance (through the Lunar eclipse) and receptivity to open-heartedness and emotional vulnerability (through Scorpio season)
Basically, we highly recommend using this period to reflect on what’s really going to make you happy.
2 of Swords (Reversed)
Aquarius is ready to face the music… no more hiding in the shadows.
The 2 of Swords reversed can feel a lot like ripping off an old bandaid. Anything you were blinding yourself to before now is more viewable, and you’re no longer willing to sit around ignoring any important truths.
Moving forward, you are choosing honesty and vulnerability, even if it means embracing a lot of unknowns in the process. You’re ready to be your true self.
Like a chrysalis into a butterfly, this is the first stage of a very important transition for Aquarius.
Page of Pentacles (Reversed)
Pisces, hold your horses. Burnout is inching closer and closer.
The Page of Pentacles reversed reflects a whole lot of enthusiasm and new ideas for work and career, but you may not have enough resources (whether time, experience, or tools) to get it all done right now.
Rather than rushing in fast and headfirst, this card is your signal to hold onto those ideas and ambitions without executing any grand plans just yet.
This week is the right week to let them sit and marinate.
