This week’s astrological happenings won’t be ones that you want to miss.
Pluto’s seemingly unending retrograde will finally come to a close on the 10th, and Mars will enter passionate and intense Scorpio on the 12th. Finally, the Solar eclipse in Libra will take place on the 14th.
With so many events looming on the horizon, you would think that it might be almost impossible to even prepare. Thankfully, we always have the trusty Tarot to show us the light and lead the way ahead.
You know what the stars and planets have in store for the world. Now, let’s see what this week has in store for you.
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for October 9 – 15, 2023
8 of Swords (Reversed)
Aries is saying “no” to being held back.
With the 8 of Swords reversed, you’re pushing away from everything that’s holding you down and restraining you.
Mental blockages and habitual self-sabotage may be themes that come up more frequently this week, but only so that you can identify these issues and make a plan to release them.
And with a Solar eclipse on the way, this is definitely the week to make those big changes.
The Sun (Reversed)
Although last week it was missing from your life, it popped up just the week before. Now, it’s here reversed as if to indicate that you may have had that light and joy but are discovering it to be missing again.
You may feel more disconnected from yourself, unsure of your own hopes, and questioning your self-worth.
But the light of The Sun hasn’t faded truly — after all, after it sets, it always rises again.
3 of Wands
Horizons are expanding for Gemini.
You’ve put in the initial planning and are sitting on so much passion, drive, and ambition for the future. The 3 of Wands is a positive omen for those ambitions, and it asks you to keep your spirits high and optimistic.
This card is also a great indicator for any travel plans and entrepreneurial pursuits in particular.
How will you seize this momentum and open yourself up to even more?
3 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Cancer may not be connecting with others as easily this week.
Although last week was a positive one for love and exchanging affections, the 3 of Pentacles reversed forecasts cloudy energy in actually solidifying anything real.
In other words, your heart may still be wanting to make connections. But negotiating what actual commitments should look like, how time and space should be invested, and so forth… It’s all still working itself out.
Don’t rush to agree to any commitments just to avoid conflict. If necessary, take some time apart from loved ones to let the fog pass, then return to the important conversations later.
King of Cups (Reversed)
Leo is facing the exact same energy as last week.
That’s right — Leos faced the King of Cups reversed just last week, which brought anxiety, feeling more out of control, and internal fog and confusion.
While you’re still powering through this rut of stagnancy and emotional frustration, you may wonder if this period is destined to go on forever.
However, just like last week, you’re being asked to trust yourself (and the Universe) that you’ll make it out just fine.
10 of Pentacles
Virgo, you have a bountiful abundance on the table this week.
Actually, the 10 of Pentacles is a positive omen for finances and the home in a way that isn’t really out of left field either.
It hints that you may have been working on something for a while and are just now starting to have a clear sense of stability and vision for the future.
Even if you don’t have everything figured out, you’re on the way to feeling secure with what you have despite that.
2 of Swords (Reversed)
Libra, this week is about letting go of illusions and indecision.
Although the 2 of Swords can cloud your vision and make you second guess your next steps, the reversal of this card highlights a desire to proceed even with uncertainties.
You may not have all of the answers, but right now, it is about accepting the present even without them.
Take some deep breaths, seek stillness and inner peace, and take the next steps bravely into the unknown… without the desire to know.
3 of Swords
Scorpio is feeling a certain sting this week.
The 3 of Swords forecasts heartbreak, disappointment, and sadness. It’s not a very exciting card to receive, but emotionally attuned Scorpio is well-equipped to handle whatever feelings are thrown their way.
However, you’re also known to stew in your emotions on occasion. It’s important to feel what you need to feel, but this card asks you to move on and bounce back from it, too.
The road to healing begins with acknowledging what needs to be healed. But then you also have to be willing to walk forward away from it too.
9 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Sagittarius isn’t getting the abundance and rewards that they’ve been wanting.
In fact, the 9 of Pentacles reversed hints that you may be experiencing burnout in general, desperately needing some quality “me time” but not having the resources or circumstances to properly experience it.
You may be tempted to just “power through” and hope that something gets better on its own, as Sagittarius is known for their eternal optimism.
However, you may have to be willing to carve out space for yourself intentionally and reward yourself if the world won’t do it for you. Don’t wait for others to recognize your worth.
8 of Pentacles
Capricorn, as usual, is working away.
You’re already known for your steadfast, hardworking spirit. The 8 of Pentacles is just telling us something we already know! This week, you’re devoting your time and energy devotedly to existing plans and work.
This is a great week to focus on career, hobbies, and skills. It’s not the time for impulse buys or rash decisions, however.
Keep steady and stay true to your current path.
Knight of Wands (Reversed)
Aquarius may feel reckless and more impulsive this week than usual.
With the Knight of Wands reversed your energetic tank is more scattered and uncertain overall.
Some Aquarians may feel too high energy, more inclined to impulse and random action. Others may feel depleted entirely, thus prompted to act just as impulsively to make up for the feeling of stagnancy.
No matter how this uncomfortable energy manifests for you, remember that patience and restraint are key for this week.
King of Wands
Pisces, get ready to get into action!
The King of Wands is quite the card to receive, singing high praise for your confidence, leadership capabilities, and ability to express yourself bravely and loudly.
This week, you may be feeling yourself more than usual. And if you aren’t, the King of Wands certainly is asking you to try.
What will you use this powerful energy for? Think of a few goals you’d like to accomplish, and then trust yourself enough to actually go for them this week.
