How has September treated you? September’s message in the Nine of Wands hit me pretty hard that month. The phrase that kept coming up for me was “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle” – myself included. If anything, September’s message was that of resilience and courage. Where did you find your resilience and courage? How will that transition us into October?
October is here with soft, intuitive compassion through the Queen of Cups. She is strong in her emotions and deeply tuned in to her own sense of inner knowing. From September’s journeying, how can you translate what you’ve learned into more compassion for yourself? I feel as though the messages during the Equinox were pretty strongly pushed towards healing yourself so that you can shine brighter for others and the Queen of Cups is that gentle reminder to keep going on your healing journey.
Emotionally, how are you feeling? I’m definitely feeling those water ripples in the bottom right of the card but I’m also feeling the gentleness of the Queen’s hand dipping into the water as well. I like to imagine myself scooping up some of the Universal knowledge in that starry water, absorbing it, and taking it all in.
There is such a sweet gentleness in this card that I think we should all enjoy this month. As the veil thins and as we still navigate the emotional ripples of that gorgeous Eclipse, we must treat ourselves with love and compassion. It also means we should trust our intuitive feelings a bit more. That’s So Retrograde did a great episode (as always!) which featured The Spiritual Owl talking about trusting your intuition and LOA. It’s worth the listen, if you need a friendly reminder! I know I do sometimes. Lindsay Mack’s Tarot for the Wild Soul Monthly Medicine for October is AMAZING! Give that a listen too! That one hit me particularly hard for many reasons partly because October is my birth month and there’s a lot of stuff swirling around.
I’m thinking I should set up a recommended listening / reading list for the month, maybe? We’ll see… 🙂
How is your year going so far? I’d love to know!
