What is the greatest spiritual threat humans face in the month of October?
ANSWER: Four of Pentacles reversed
Four of Pentacles reversed confirms a mass psychological awareness will be taking hold as the source of societal maladies becomes more obvious than ever.
Malignant viruses of the mind and soul are now beyond pervasive, but citizens of society who are free from illness are conscious enough to treat the sick, so the contagion is contained, it’s not spreading, which is good news.
However, Four of Pentacles reversed suggests a difficult extraction, like pulling out an impacted tooth with pliers or something; it’s hard work requiring a steady hand and skill. There are so many pathways to disease existing in the core of social functions. All kinds of communities are contaminated, adding an additional layer of complexity to this arduous healing process and making the reversal appearance of Four of Pentacles even more poignant in its connection to Three of Pentacles, the card that appears before it in the tarot deck. Three of Pentacles was the tarot card pulled for the month of September, a timespan in which it was of utmost importance to engender and support the healthy functioning of community by combining strengths for the benefit of all. Please read the September forecast here for further insights.
Now, in October, issues of legacy and posterity become more important. It’s clear now, especially if born and raised in a consumer based society like America, that materialism, greed, depravity, disconnection from roots, a lack of respect for nature and the Earth and other false foundations based in pseudo realities fostered by the ego have been the status quo for far too long. We are not founded on healthy principles; our society is diseased.
It’s not all a Sh*t Show though; whole communities are likely to shift long-held perspectives or stances, shocking the ‘woke’ among us. Groups who have been staunch in clinging to the persistence of disease will begin to move toward the direction of healing, literally startling the crap out of the conscious masses.
Psychology is transforming and values are changing. Continue to apply the lessons of Three of Pentacles by supporting the healthy growth and functioning of community and watch fresh, salubrious seeds sprout.

KEY OCTOBER THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Six of Hazards: Ram, this month presents a lesson in balanced giving and sharing. Debt, be it personal or financial, has obvious ramifications in October. Decisions are much more weighted in upcoming weeks as a result of this energy exchange, so it’s important to not be foolhardy in the evaluation of issues such as promises, contracts or partnerships. Feel free to walk away from imbalanced agreements. The Six of Hazards supports getting the house in order. Expect to receive gifts relative to the quality of what is being put out; escaping unscathed with half-assed work isn’t going to be effective in upcoming weeks. Ram, if disciplined with these matters, bounty is yours; success is likely to amplify beyond belief. The weekend of October 7-8 highlights the importance of mutual exchange in a big way. Band together around a positive central goal or commitment rather than desperate codependence.
Taurus - Eight of Cups reversed: Bull, emotional depletion has taken hold following the swift and intense progress of recent months. Although a feeling of flat out BLAH is prevalent, it is important to stay abreast of developments even despite low energy levels. The key to making your way through this month for the highest benefit of all is to ensure you’re getting proper rest. Recuperation intervals are absolutely necessary. And, bear in mind, even if power naps have become a legitimate part of the daily calendar, you’re still likely to be a little more snoozy than normal and although getting sick sucks, attracting the common cold or some other type of bug may just happen whether you like it or not. The greatest visualization for this energy is a Bull that’s napping in a meadow. It’s not time to charge forward with all your strength, it’s time to rebuild robustness. Eight of Cups reversed indicates emotional pressure and some type of personal rebirth on the horizon. Sleep off the growing pains. Obviously, life just won’t suddenly stop and allow you to nap all day. It’s OK to be sleepwalking through important tasks for now. Adopt a chiller, less stressed out kind of pace. Frantic mania won’t help anyway, so you might as well just relax on through the obligations versus trying to headbutt to reach an end goal.
Gemini - Nine of Hazards reversed: Twin, if facing a less than ideal work situation, rest assured, the ideal is on its way. Most of the conflict is in the mind. Pursuits are on pause to help facilitate a beneficial reevaluation of goals. Do you even remember what happened in September? That month just straight up disappeared. Everything went by so fast because you’ve been hot on the move for a minute. Who are you and what do you want? Even the most conscious and self-aware Gemini needs to ask these questions again in October. Nine of Hazards reversed suggests a deep psychological probing of inner motivations is necessary before launching the next step. Taking the time to rehash and reconsider also offers up a wonderful opportunity to witness how much you’ve matured. Your maturation progress is off the charts, but do you realize how you’ve grown? This is like asking a child to pinpoint exactly how many inches taller she’s become in the last six months. No one really notices that much growth consciously, until looking back and being like, ‘Wow, I can reach the kitchen counter now and grab these cookies without having to step up on this stool.’ The growth just happens and then you’re like, ‘WHOA’. Allow yourself to be in awe of all that just happened and to enjoy your well-earned mastery. To the overachievers among us: you’ve built something awesome, so observe how it works for a while before augmenting any further.
Cancer - Nine of Cups: Crab, a tremendous shift is looming toward maximum emotional fulfillment. Planet Jupiter transits into Scorpio on October 10, 2017, transforming the everyday goal into contentment expansion, and this energy will be in place until November 8, 2018. The past year or so has been deeply foundational, with the focus on cementing, concreting and solidifying infrastructure. Relationships have also been in the spotlight, making engagement with others more profound than usual, with great leaps and bounds in interrelating having taken place. Marriage engagements or other monumental commitments, moving in larger social circles, socializing more than ever, adopting a pet or expanding the family are just a few of the possible expressions of the old energy. And from October 10, the focus will be more on you and your own needs. Although the rest of the world may occur as if it’s sprinting toward advancement, leaving you walking down an alternative path, following the crowd or being motivated to action by the stimuli of others is not a good modus operandi this month. Nine of Cups confirms the promised maximum emotional fulfillment during the Jupiter in Scorpio transit is accomplished through doing what you truly want to do instead of adopting the desires of others. Agree to only those obligations that feel good and are fully authentic. It’s better to keep people clued up on exactly what these personal wishes are too by straight up saying yes or no to whatever is before you without entertaining second thoughts. By concentrating on granting your own wishes, you are aiding the birth and development of gratification and reward for years into the future. Everyone benefits from the unabashed expression of your personal truths. Start taking creativity, hobbies and your dream life even more seriously - with a clear ear to the hummings of providence, a balanced, healthy heart and soul, and a little more work and effort, it is very likely wishes and aspirations will actually become reality. This may not be anything new; you’ve probably been working on this pursuit for a long time. Be careful what you wish for? Maybe in some circumstances, but living your dream is awesome, so, congratulations.
Leo - The Moon reversed: Lion, the new life cycle launched by the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017 is really digging in its grip on reality. The Moon reversed suggests a complete transformation is occurring from the inside out. It could literally feel like you’ve been sucked into a vortex of change and stuff is transforming before your eyes on a straight up wizardly magic tip. Please don’t be consumed by depression over what is lost. The forces of providence are literally not allowing things from the past to continue as they are. A sense of hopeless can emerge with so much transmutation happening, causing worry, woe and sadness to flood the body. This is natural. Cry, do what you gotta do, but know any type of difficulty is transitory; no pain will last forever. Also, keep in mind, there’s so much going on, trying to keep everything in order may simply be impossible. It’s almost like life entropy is going down in the Leo neighborhood right now. Do only what you can do, that’s the best approach in October. The best you can is awesome, no worries if things don’t fully function or get out of whack somehow, oh well, chalk it up to the universe. The future is now; allow it to unfold. Feel free to laugh at yourself and how wild all this sh*t is.
Virgo - Five of Cups reversed: Virgin, it’s looking good. Everything is in order. So, what’s the problem? Five of Cups reversed suggests there’s this feeling that more needs to be done; something is missing in the equation. Sustaining the good life far into the future is a really huge goal. Setting a good example may suddenly become an all-consuming quest in October. That’s awesome! The universe approves of a steadfast commitment to sustainable progress. Many Virgins may find themselves investing in stocks, real estate, retirement funds, bonds, or any type of asset that appreciates in value over time. But the motivation isn’t financial; it’s personal. Money is just a symptom of a real desire to bond and connect on a deep level with beings you love. Isolation is not an option. The true value of relating and making a long-term difference in someone’s life, whether it’s a friend, family member, stranger, or even a pet, is the resonant motivation behind everything you do in October. By working in service of the happiness and love of others, you’re becoming the prime example of what it means to have your sh*t together.
Libra - Judgement reversed: Libran, you’re coming up on that huge emotional decision. It’s just around the corner and you can feel it. Please read the Leo section of the September horoscope here for more insight into what is happening for you. Straight up–there is some stuff you just need to keep close to your chest this month. These emotional insights are for your eyes only. It’s hard to tell a person, ‘Hey, I’m not feeling you anymore’. It’s difficult to even come to terms with these kind of emotive and relational realities within yourself, let alone attempt to explain this to the person(s) in question. Don’t tell everybody your business right now, the world doesn’t need to know. In October, it’s OK to not have a final decision in place. Make your move in November; continue to analyze and strategize until then. During this period of reflection, seeking the advice of qualified practitioners or helpers of any kind who work in complete confidence would reap great benefits. If you seek insight only from other highly ethical people, there’s no doubt the decision you come to when November rolls around will be made with supreme confidence.
Scorpio - Justice reversed: Scorpion, relationships are lingering in the psyche. Please read the Aquarius section of the September horoscope here for more insight into what is happening with you and/or a significant other (whether or not you’re still talking). The fact is, however frustrating, there is no overnight resolution to this; it will take time. The best use of this energy is to seek truth in reflection. What really went down? Observe each occurrence with no emotional attachment and experience enlightenment around this. Something wasn’t meant to be or some lesson was meant to be learned, what was it, really? Compatibility flaws are front and center, positioned in the perfect space for contemplation. The problem is, Scorpios leave a little bit of their soul with those they truly bond with. It’s hard to say goodbye; these individuals are a part of you. So, there’s this eternal longing that sucks and is itching to be relieved by being in contact. In many ways, solitariness is a foreign reality to the Scorpio, because you folk fuse. Arachnid of Love, you’re working on it, this is no easy task, big ups to taking this on. The ultimate goal here is to learn how to not give too much of yourself to those who are not worthy or willing to receive you. Although this lesson might take forever to be incorporated into the core essence of who you are, it’ll happen eventually, keep at it.
Sagittarius - Page of Hazards: Centaur, there is so much to learn right now. Give your pledge to becoming the best student ever and reaching the top of the class. Many of you are entering a new chapter of wealth and abundance, and you need to become a master of knowledge around issues of prosperity. Page of Hazards is a student of business, medicine, anything physical, so he could be a natural scientist as well, but whatever the topic of study, the goal here is to know what the f**k you’re talking about. This should be fun, not some onerous task of doom. Bear in mind–this is only the beginning. You’ve got a huge course ahead, so you might as well enjoy it and not be pressured to become an expert overnight, that’ll just kill the joy of learning and it’s not possible anyway, so let it go. Some Centaurs might be straight up stepping into an entirely new occupation, residence, or some real life sh*t you can see, touch and feel that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before, which, for many Sagittarians, is saying a LOT. What’s fascinating about this new learning track is that upon reflection, you may come to find this path has been building beneath your awareness for years. It may be interesting to ruminate on how you’ve been unwittingly preparing for this throughout your life.
Capricorn - Five of Wands reversed: Goat, STOP. Five of Wands reversed suggests you’re headed into contentious territory. An urge to b*tch-slap or straight up cuss out an individual can be so strong, it just might happen, but with this warning, hopefully you can control yourself before the sensation overwhelms. You’re working hard and have been doing so for an extremely long period of time. With all the adrenaline that’s been pumping while undertaking this tremendous effort, at this point, it’s easy to explode. If you’ve got the choice, please find a less inflamed way to blow off steam, such as going for a run, attending a dance class or having insanely vigorous sex or something. If you pop off and your lid blows, oh well, you might just have to suffer the ramifications, apologize and move on. Anger and upset is part of reality; at least you’re authentic and whole enough to openly defend yourself or express feelings about what is really pissing you off. You’re a total Boss and sometimes powerful people have to drop niceties to get sh*t done. This is not an excuse for crappy behavior or being a complete asshole. The forecast acknowledges the pressure you’re under and asks you to embrace anger as a learning tool to cultivate growth.
Aquarius - Queen of Wands reversed: Water Bearer, social interactions in October are still strained. You’ve been dealing with relationship issues for a while and the fact that charm doesn’t win over easily can just absolutely suck right now. The atmosphere feels more like exercising rules of engagement with certain significant others than hobnobbing and laughing like a Dandy over a joke at a festive gathering. It’s just no fun, so don’t go there with the person(s) you’re having problems with. Put your energy into people who are receptive to having a good time. It’s not worth pushing the subject with the individual who just cannot currently handle you, because, according to Queen of Wands reversed, there can be some hidden, vicious pain corrupting the situation. Instead, focus on creative pursuits or projects dear to your heart. Put every ounce of energy into launching a considerable interest into the stratosphere. Be mature later; have fun now. The time will come when this relationship issue can successfully be resolved, but it’s not in October, so kick it. You’ve got free reign to act like a teenager and party it up, take in a cool series of art shows, go to the cinema, experience theater, or some other type of rad cultural pursuit while you wait. However, if you’ve been doing this forever, raving on a wild flex with zero emotional availability, flip the script; of course you’re pissing people off. In this case, exercise emotive maturity for once. Ultimately, the lesson is to exhibit authenticity when relating to others. Be real.
Pisces - Strength: Fish, you’re killing it. Strength confirms your position on the top of the world. The inner work you’ve been performing over the past few months has panned out to such great success. A round of applause is due to you, actually, a standing ovation. *clap clap clap clap clap*, you deserve it and you’re awesome. Everything is in perfect order; it’s so wonderful to witness contentment taking hold like this after facing all those challenges. However, the work isn’t over. There’s still stuff from the past to strip away to cultivate the ground for even more renewal. But, the flipside to these remaining efforts is the fact that many of these opportunities are likely to just come to you. You don’t have to seek what is necessary to find when your inner glow attracts favorable circumstance like a magnet. There’s literally nothing obstructing your advancement right now. Leave all drama, trauma, fears and unhealthy habits firmly in the past. Continue to move forward with complete confidence, faith, and purity of mind and heart.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Male disease predominates. Men are wonderful and so is masculinity, period, end of story. But when Four of Pentacles shows up in the reversed position, issues affecting males, such as prostate illness, anything penis related or even strange more archaic maladies like syphilis may be part of the conversation in a more noticeable way than usual in October. Also, psychological problems stemming from pestilential machismo, such as sexual dysfunction, harassment, all kinds of masculine toxicities like this, are going to dominate the airwaves. Destructive phallic symbols, such as bombs and guns, are also prominent issues.
- Garden. Literally. Plant a tree and grow some stuff in the ground; the energy of October supports soil fertilization.
- Continue to renovate. Keep fixing stuff up. Of course this may be out of necessity, not everyone is actually looking for a fixer-upper kind of project, but in any case, great progress will be made on rehabilitation pursuits between December 21, 2017 and January 18, 2018.
- Foundations will fall. Expect the ground to be swept from under your feet abruptly. Things are changing and seismic transformation is likely to shake up reality with the force of an earthquake. Try to go with the flow.
