What is the biggest observable life transformation apparent for humans in October?
ANSWER: Wheel of Fortune reversed
Wheel of Fortune reversed turns up to verify what once yielded energetic dominance is now obsolete, or at the very least, won’t hold for much longer.
Another point of clarity in October is that it’s important for power to be in the right hands and situations run by the right people, or in a more esoteric sense, entities, forces and energies.
A part of the Major Arcana soul-driven portion of the tarot deck, Wheel of Fortune has many profound implications, especially regarding fate and destiny. In its reversal position, a word of caution emerges, reminding humans fortunes are lost if they’re mishandled or squandered away.
A huge transition has been taking place over the better part of the last year or so, while Jupiter has been transiting through the zodiac sign Scorpio since October 10, 2017, with major “death” cycles occurring, literally or figuratively; some modus operandi, lifestyle, or the like has perished in this time period. October provides a bit of a respite as this cycle of transformation continues, in that this month it’s all about settling into the New Present.
Every single being truly did sign up to live life on Earth for specific purposes, with ample opportunities to fulfill a course of learning or soul goal. Now, in October, one of the most important things to do is to focus on élan vital, the vital force of creation, and how it has been applied or manifested in your life as an individual.
A main danger in October is to get stuck in a rut, attempting to ignore divine transmutation in favor of remaining in a safe place. It’s way less safe to not answer the higher call. Don’t be fooled by the illusion of safety in the weeks ahead if alterations on life path are necessary to realize a soul’s purpose.
Be alert to topics of financial transformations of the highest order, expansion versus consumption - what has increased and decreased sheds light on transposition, shifts and transference of power.
Finally, a natural flow exists with Wheel of Fortune; you can think of the card as a rolling wheel. Which direction is it traveling in and what force is driving the wheel? Determine the cause of propulsion and whether or not it is steering toward soul fulfillment.

October presents a time period for reflection and planning in relation to Jupiter transits.
The planet entered star sign Scorpio on October 10, 2017 and Jupiter transits into Sagittarius on November 8, 2018, to remain in that position until December 2, 2019.
Jupiter in Scorpio amplified the energy of the sign, which is extremely deep and plutonic, engendering extreme metamorphosis that is most often confronting. What major shifts happened in your life from October 2017 to now? Settle into your new world, because Jupiter in Sagittarius will be a very different experience.
During the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit, the momentum shifts into fast progression, instead of the stop and go or straight up pause patterns taking hold since October, 2017. The reflection is over from November, with questing, adventures and applied philosophy blazing through the days.
Uranus, another fire planet that’ll be in and out of station into a new sign, Taurus, dipping from Aries to Taurus until early 2019, is heavily influential, so there’s just a whole lot of dynamic change and entries into fresh life eras going on.
KEY OCTOBER THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Nine of Wands: Ram, weariness and battle fatigue are issues of focus. The extent of damage caused by wear and tear is very apparent with the Nine of Wands prominent. Evaluate what needs to change to combat exhaustion and infuse life with more energy. There may very well be goals that are worth the toll of energetic depletion, but not every single effort is. Try to find balance in rest and focus on wrapping up certain life elements that continue to drain your vital force.
Taurus - Sevens of Rings reversed: Bull, get the fine print sorted in contractual obligations. Seven of Rings reversed turns attention to shared goals, those reached between yourself and a body of people, such as an organization or a team, as well as one-on-one partnerships. Review contracts, accumulate what’s necessary before embarking on a joint project, get things materially sorted. Shared expenses are obviously part of the dynamic in October. Anything material or financial has implications for far into the future, decades, retirement plans and the like. Evaluating the potential gain or loss is the best course of action to take on in the weeks ahead - how much will appreciate or depreciate through time in an investment made now?
Gemini - The Empress: Gemini, lessons in bountiful groundedness continue. The Empress is ruled by Venus, a planet magnetizing through the force of attraction. Listen close, this is attraction versus manifestation, receiving versus cooking something up. Gemini, you’re getting lessons about this in real time and the way it is translating into real life may be surprising. For example, life may have suddenly become so enjoyable, it’s like, is this really happening? You’re not having to try so hard. This has been an ongoing theme for several months, so it may be beneficial to read through the forecasts published on this website since July, for even more insight. This idea of Earth and natural replenishment, how Nature takes care of itself, is astoundingly real and may be a staggering reality for Geminis. If you’ve ever been stifled by financial worry, this is a whole new era, with many Twins entering into a very fortunate economic period. The most important element of all this is the calm knowledge of being provided for, being receptive to bounty.
Cancer - Temperance reversed: Crab, you really have no idea how much life is going to take off for you once Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8. You may have suffered a lot more than others in the past year, because the very core of your imagination was hit, creating a whole new reference point for the dreams and visions that keep you alive and define your purpose in this world. A lot had to die to remove any baggage for this upcoming Jupiter in Sagittarius transit, that takes place from November 8, 2018 until December 2, 2019. A test of faith has occurred and this issue of trust in a higher power is amplified in October. This doesn’t necessarily need to be a bad thing and can be extremely vivifying actually, but it’s ultimately about navigating through life using true divine knowledge as a compass, moving from the heart, the inner voice, the highest self that is never, ever inaccurate. Act on that without doubt from here on out.
Leo - The Star: Lion, heal. The Star card turns up to encourage wellness in the month of October. If you’ve been putting off going to the doctor, this is a great time to schedule that appointment. Medical health isn’t the only priority, as spiritual and emotional vigor are also at the top of the list. Sooth, pamper and nurture your spiritual path, your soul in the weeks ahead. Also, think about who you can connect with, on the spirit planes or in our physical dimensions, to help you feel whole, as if you’re part of an important group. Nurturing yourself first sponsors this fulfilled connection that in turn reignites a nourishing, soulful connection to the wider universe.
Virgo - The Moon reversed: Virgin, the depths have returned. The Moon reversed turns up to signify that October is a month of deep introspection. Ocean floor deep, the soul of the universe, the type of inexplicable, profound and magnificent power that courses through everything. Tap into this for maximum benefit. The Moon reversed may not be pleasant, because the climate is unclear and reality seems to undulate like the dark night of the ocean, reflecting something so arcane it cannot be explained through rational means. Don’t try to mentally process the force, flow with it, let the current move you and the obstacles will be floated through - instituting intellect may cause an overwhelming sensation of drowning.
Libra - Knight of Wands: Scales, your life force is fire right now. Knight of Wands shows up to encourage you to go after whatever motivates the core of your soul. A court card personality, Knight of Wands has fire, swagger, pizazz, luster, glowing confidence. You possess all of these dazzling qualities in October, so introduce yourself to movers and shakers, get out there in the world and rely on your own personal force of vision to make things happen. The Knight of Wands can be overly enthusiastic at times, but so what? Enthusiasm is not a great danger for you, you’ve got what it takes and it’s time to just go out and get it.
Scorpio - Six of Swords: Scorpion, a major psychological chapter has closed and it’s time to move on. Six of Swords shows up to confirm the perspective has wholly shifted and a new phase of thinking is ready to be applied. September may have presented more questions than answers with fogginess around certain pertinent issues, but the answers have now arrived and so has clarity. The complex mental battle has been won. What thoughts and ideas are arising in this new era of lucidity? Observe.
Sagittarius - Seven of Wands: Centaur, step into the ring. Seven of Wands turns up to encourage you to suit up with boxing gloves - you’re in for fierce competition. In October, you’ll be fighting and winning, confronting and conquering obstacles. This is contentious, but not necessarily in an awful way. October can be really fun because it’s exhilarating to truly go after something you’re really passionate about and overcome all hindrances to accomplishing the goal. It’s rad, enjoy, but try to find a way to balance these energies, because it can feel as if you’re stepping into battle all the time, the pressure to perform is immense.
Capricorn - Five of Wands reversed: Goat, something is festering beneath the surface. Five of Wands reversed turns up to elucidate a fear of reprisal or discomfort over an impending conflict. There may be smiles on the face, but underneath the visage, nervous trepidation or straight up terror brews. If there has been trouble at home, it is time to plumb the depths to be on the path to resolution. This is not an easy conflict to address and may take some time. If there is a possibility of having an autoimmune disorder or some type of nervous condition, such as stress or anxiety, check into it now and figure out ways to remedy severe strain that can cause health issues. Overall, anything that you want to avert or that you simply never want to experience again, especially if it’s domestic, may blow up. If anything gets incendiary, it’s OK, you can handle it. Remember, this ends up for the highest good. In the meantime, figure out the cause of this dreadfulness and deal with it the best you can.
Aquarius - Seven of Cups: Aquarian, what are you doing? Seven of Cups turns up to verify this may not be an easy question to answer in the weeks ahead. The person influenced by Seven of Cups energy is in a state of imaginative or spiritual inquiry. Use the weeks ahead to dream up, map-out or enter a vision board phase, where creative ideas flow to you. Be aware, procrastination may rear its ugly head, so try to produce what you can instead of wasting the fertile grounds of imagination before you in October by doing absolutely nothing. Laze about, yes, but at least write this stuff down in a notebook for later.
Pisces - Eight of Wands: School of Fish, a quest for purpose ignites. Eight of Wands encourages Pisceans to aim at a passionate target, to start shooting for a soul-enriching bullseye. Whether it’s as simple as declaring New Years resolutions for yourself or as complex as overhauling an entire career or lifestyle, Eight of Wands wants somewhere to go and the mind is moving at a fast pace to march forth toward the goal with a sense of purpose, striding towards destiny with resolute faith. Find what fires your soul and go for it.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
Deduce the source of momentum. Work from what is truly right for you. Even the most authentic among us can move forward in life based on precepts or ideologies that aren’t serving the highest good. October is all about identifying the preternatural forces, energies or entities that are really advancing movement.
Settle in. This has been a long transition, perhaps even as far back as 2010, when Uranus moved into Aries, and now life presents a very new dawn. Take some time out to be with the shifts and find your place in the New Present.
Evaluate what has happened personally in this last Jupiter in Scorpio transit, which kicked off on October 10, 2017 and ends next month, on November 8, 2018. Consider what has expanded, decreased, died, or become obsolete in this time period.
Free will is up for debate. Predestiny becomes a major topic, so does control over choice, who gets to make the decisions.
Trust divine forces that are greater than you and work through you as a vessel. Self-inquiry is great, but the onus isn’t on the individual. There are forces, energies and entities out there meant to help you achieve whatever it is you signed up for, connect with and rely on them. Also, look at public figures through this context; what entities or forces are driving them?
Look beneath the veil. Just want to reiterate there are so many different spirits, energies and forces on Earth influencing human affairs; it’s more important than ever to be cognizant of and responsible for these preternatural powers.
This is a great time for energy healing work and interdimensional healing that involves the transference or exchange of energy.
On both a personal and societal level, disappointment in waste can arise, with extra scrutiny on putting trust or energy into stupid, enervating tasks. There may be regret over the realization of tremendous investment in something whack.
Another large-scale issue has to do with matters of mass squandering or great gain. Major expenses, checks and balances and the impact of putting energy into certain financial or cultural paradigms is again up for consideration.
Consider: what has expanded and what’s decreased? Evaluate this for more clues and elucidation into destiny.
It can go either way. Power is up for grabs; make sure the forces or entities you want in control are steering the wheel.
