October 2020 Monthly Tarot Card Predictions | Katrina James
Date Published: October 9, 2020
Tarot Deck used: Radiant Wise Spirit Tarot|Lo Scarabeo
- 9 of Wands,
- The Emperor
- 10 of Cups
- The TOWER
When the 9 of Wands flew out of the deck while shuffling, I felt it had an obvious need to be heard. Therefore, I sense much fear and anxiety from you in the month of October, Aries. This could stem from a past situation where you were hurt, betrayed, possibly even physically attacked. The point is, you were hurt, so this anxiety should not be considered merely as some kind of irrational paranoia. This hypervigilance you are experiencing is for good reason. It also feels like you may be venturing out into the world, starting fresh, and possibly keeping only yourself as company.
Moving forward, we see your card, The Emperor, representing yourself and the authority and control you have over your current life. It seems that you have recently taken a stance and shifted your attitude to, “Me first!” On your mind, most certainly, is the happiness you are trying to find. Hate to be the one to break this to ya, but…The Tower underneath it all is in your reading as a final message–something needs to fall apart, and expects you to rebuild it. Fresh start, transformations, letting go, feeling your feelings, and processing as the walls which hold up your metaphorical house come crumbling down to nothing more than a pile of dust.
It’s time to kiss the old you–and your way of living and seeing the world– goodbye, Aries. Very exciting and eventful times are coming your way!
TIP: If you choose to resist these changes brought on by The Tower, you can expect this month to be much harder to handle than necessary.
- 9 of Cups
- Knight of Wands
- Ace of Swords
Taurus, greed will be your downfall. It is like you want what you can’t have, you want to have your cake and eat it too, you want something so bad up until the point that you get it, then you’re already over and done with it. What you wished for may very well be yours and play out in your life this month. Careful though, remember all the pros AND cons associated with this wish of yours. Is it worth ALL it has to offer? That’s a question only you can answer, Taurus.
Moving forward, I see that you are having difficulty staying committed to your endeavors, plans, relationships, etc. You are passionate one day, and gone the next, onto the next exciting thing. You cannot live like this forever, it hurts people and makes you look flaky and unreliable. Not to mention–fake! Communication shows a strong influence for you this month, so use it wisely. Communicate your plans and perspectives and explain why you no longer wish to be a part of certain things you were once committed to. You will definitely have the opportunity to speak your word on these issues.
Like Aries, a transformation is in store for you. Almost like a death, a drastic change is just on the horizon, and you’d be wise to flow with it. It is likely you will feel this change occurring, it will not be gradual or vague.
TIP: Be true to yourself while staying true to the consideration of the feelings of those around you. It will save you the grief, later.
- 6 of Swords
- The Lovers
- Queen of Wands
- 7 of Swords
If this is not a love situation being expressed in your cards, then it may represent conflicting ideas which you are being called upon to decide between. There are two sides to everything–your perspective, the perspective of those involved, and the objective perspective. This month has got you thinking much about the right move. What does that look like for you, Gem? Are you considering your own needs as we go through the month of October? Maybe you should start.
You may be choosing to leave something, or someone, behind this month. And that is not an easy thing for you. You are saddened by this because at one time or another, it really meant a lot to you. You enjoyed yourself in the company of this person, or while participating in this “thing”…nevertheless, all good things must come to an end, though it looks as if you are struggling to face this dilemma. Underneath it all, the 7 of Swords, the little trickster of the Tarot! What are you struggling to face head on, Gemini? Being independent and having the freedom to go your own way, doing what you want comes with a price: You go it all alone.
I sense that you are wanting to escape responsibilities, or you are just tired of being involved in a situation which makes you feel held back and restricted. So, you flee–you go your own way in hopes to feel that freedom of living by your own rules again. The 7 of Swords adds a touch of sneakiness to this equation.
TIP: In the avoidance of others’ feelings, you may be hurting people more by leaving without closure. Try to face this conflict instead of running. When it’s all said and done, you will have already dealt with all those messy emotions.
- The Wheel of Fortune
- The TOWER
- The Moon
Wow, Cancer! All Major Arcana for you this month! Very powerful energies are coming together here to create a very emotionally heavy month for you. Nothing you can’t handle, though!
Up first, we have the Wheel of Fortune, blessing you with luck and a good omen to everything you do. Hey, that is starting off much better than the other signs so far, so cheer up! The TOWER is here to show that, basically, you are going through a major transformation of mind, body, and soul. It is likely you have felt this transformation coming on for a while now, this is not meant to be a shock to you. This has been a long time coming, so you can rest easy knowing that this is for your highest good. You see, there is no avoiding, brushing under the rug, or pushing aside the forces of The Tower. These changes will occur and the more fluid and flexible you are, the easier it will be for you. Karma may be at play here in some way. The Justice card gives us the feeling of balance being restored, either after creating a storm in your own life as well as in the lives of others, or due to a much needed cleansing of the person you used to be. The things you used to stand for and live by are no longer working for your highest purpose. Let live and let die!
Expect there to be some confusion associated with the happenings of this month. As I am explaining to you now, things will not seem so clear when you are in the midst of it. Try to just go with it, and know it will all be over with soon enough. What is meant to be, is meant to be, and all in support of your highest destiny in this lifetime.
TIP: Try not to take things personal. This is meant to relieve you of all past limitations and reward you by sending you off in a new direction. How refreshing!
- 7 of Swords
- The Hanged Man
- 10 of Wands
- The Hermit
You are being called on to reflect upon the recent events in your life, Leo. How are you doing? How are the people surrounding you doing? Have you been fair, trustworthy, reliable? All of these issues come up because the Hermit is present in your cards this month. The Hermit wants for you to check in with yourself from time to time, so that you are keeping up to date with your inner purpose, dreams, goals, etc.
I feel you have been distracted, and possibly, you may have swerved off the path for a while, but it is time to get back to business. The reason you are experiencing the energy of the 7 of Swords in October could be of your own doing. If you are not careful, or more considerate, you may lose all morals and become a complete con. I want to stress to you that this kind of behavior is going to lead you nowhere you wish to be. Believe it or not, you are actually being held back by this energy. If it is those around you bringing this energy into your vicinity, then you need to listen to what your gut tells you, and start cutting off some of the toxic ties you are keeping in your company.
Overall, this is so much harder for you than is necessary. Start releasing yourself from these unhealthy vibes by spending some time away from many others. Now is an opportune time to create your own harmony by simply sitting with yourself, feeling your feelings, and recharging your plans for when you set out once again into the world.
TIP: Being alone will be better for you this month. If you can’t be alone for very long, at least do yourself a favor and only spend time with those you truly trust.
- 2 of Pentacles
- 5 of Cups
- The Chariot
- The Wheel of Fortune
- 9 of Swords
This month we can see there is an energy of indecision and uncertain which things to let go of, so that other things may come in. The only way to create a new, brighter future is to separate from your past and allow other things to present themselves in your life. Dear Virgo, something has you feeling down this October. In a way, it resembles a nagging type of sadness, one that hits you when you least expect it, and just ruins your whole mood. Do not allow this to stop you from persevering in your goals.
Your critical mind is at it again, looks like you are disappointed with something. Try to look at the positive side of things. What are you so happy to have in your life now? Which things or people do you enjoy so much that you would not want to live without? Ask yourself these questions, it can help put a new perspective on your current life. The Chariot is here showing that moving forward and on is the key this month, so do not slow down your pace. You are about to embark on wonderful things, thanks to the Wheel of Fortune in the fourth position!
This month may have it’s ups and downs, but try to remember that everyone goes through it from time to time. Your focus needs to be on taking action and making decisions that have needed to be made for some time now.
TIP: Remember: You will not always go down the right path or win. You may fail, and you may wish you made a different turn back at the last stoplight. That’s okay, you will make it through, just like before. These failures are not for no reason. Make an executive decision, and be sure that you will be fine.

This is one of your months, Libra! How ironic is it that we can even feel a sense of power within the energy of your cards. I feel you are going to stand in your power and authority this month, and you may even be taking action in a major way. Usually, you are all about keeping the peace and creating harmony in your interactions, but you possess a superiority at this time that is unmatched. Others around you may even feel a bit intimidated by you, at least they won’t want to be in your way.
The forces of the suit of swords are dominating your aura, and due to this we can expect some hardships and challenges within the mind. An event from the recent past is springing up again, and you are taking it hard. This event hurt you, and it is also possible that the pain of this hurt has affected not only yourself, but your loved ones. The 10 of Swords denotes an unexpected betrayal so harsh that it may have felt as if those involved had died–in other words, a soul crushing experience.
Nevertheless, you grew from it, and now things in your life have changed, some for the better, some for the worse. That being said, I think you are finally ready to embark on a new adventure, even if that means going it alone this time around. You struggle to release the past and for that very reason, you may feel the urge to physically separate yourself from it, in order to move on.
TIP: Do what you must do for yourself. You can never go wrong when you are doing what you feel needs to be done for your highest good and purpose.

We can take note of the obvious aggressiveness in your energy this month, and those around you are likely to pick up on it. You have this sense of urgency in your self expression and in all that you do. People better just stay out of the way. If anyone has anything to say about your endeavors, objectives, goals, plans, or whereabouts–they better just keep it to themsleves.
You are overly defensive over a love situation. Or, this Ace of Cups, if not a love matter, could very well be representative of something you have an abundance of love for. Something you care for deeply like nothing else. Well, maybe not nothing else, but this is something that has had your heart strings pulling for real! Being a Scorpio, that isn’t so hard to believe that you could be intensely passionate about something/someone.
That being said, you must control your passions this October. Not only are you unwilling to get a second opinion or hear what anyone has to say about it; You run the risk of taking a premature action associated with all of these feelings firing up inside of you. Nothing needs to be done now. At this time, the cards show that waiting it out, giving it time, would be better. Let’s see if it plays out the way you had hoped, hopefully it does. Until then, why not relax a bit and enjoy these feeligns whiel they last. Not to say they will be gone tomorrow, but you just never know. Allow the universe to show you whether or not this passion of yours is really all its cracked up to be.
TIP: Consistency is key here. If you notice unpleasant changes, do not ignore them. You do not need to agree or allow uncomfortable energies in an attempt to feed an ideal. It will not magically become everything you want if you are going against what you need.

- Wheel of Fortune
If you are a male Sagittarian, do not feel that the significance of Queens in your cards to mean you are lacking in manliness. Rather, the Queens, as well as Kings, represent strong and powerful energy in the tarot. Sound like lacking in manliness? I think not.
This October will have you focused on your stability– which may or may not include your job, money, possessions, and things that can help you feel secure. You should see opportunities to increase your wealth, unless you decide not to try or put effort into the world of opportunities. Look around you and go for the ideas that attract you! Usually, Sagittarians thrive in new situations, so you shouldn’t have difficulty or too a nervous of energy preventing you.
Without your participation in taking responsibility,, you should not expect the forces of the Wheel of Fortune to work as well for you. That being said, it is still the Wheel of Fortune, so you will most likely see this luck shining in areas that will help you craft your ideas and organize your priorities. Not to mention, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, meaning you are already a lucky sign! The Wheel of Fortune at the bottom of the deck indicates that underlying your state of affairs will be a gentle hand of luck, guiding you along the way.
TIP: The Wheel of Fortune provides luck, but only if you work for it. Lucky happenings feel so much better when you actually deserve it. Your hard work will not go unrewarded.
- The Sun
- Knight of Wands
- 5 of Cups
- 10 of Cups
The light of the Sun shines on you as you realize that you are not as committed to something/someone as you had previously been. There is an urgency to break free and away from things which require your authority. You may have felt it was right one day, and now your excitement for it has started to fade. These things happen, but you feel bad about it, disappointed in yourself for not showing up and following through.
In contrast, some of you may feel that this person or situation is to blame for your sudden disengagement. You may feel that the situation or person has changed in such a way that you can see it much differently now than you had before. The objectives are different, and they no longer match with yours. You may be focusing more on the negative than the positive, as every situation and interaction has its downsides. Your overall goal is to find and create happiness in your life, and you want to include your loved ones in this. The dullness or lacking that you feel is normal, so try not to talk yourself into a worse situation than is at hand.
TIP: Remain positive in thought and start to acknowledge the things and relationships you are happy to have in your life. This should help you see things in a whole new light.

The sorrows you feel have yet to be resolved because you have yet to take action, Aquarius. There is some heavy energy surrounding you and killing your vibe and this month will call upon you to create a plan. I feel that this has been a long time coming for you, and since you have been trying your hardest to avoid these feelings, they remain.
That’s right, they’re back. And they are going to keep circulating back around if you choose to push them out of your consciousness. The problem is, they hibernate into your subconscious mind and there they cause you the added stress which weighs you down, unexplained.
This decision, or decisions–which require your personal effort this month–could have to due with a love relationship. You have more power than you think in this situation, so do not let your dialogue become one of a self-defeating nature. You are good enough and you deserve to be happy, in your relationships and in all areas of your life. You give what you get, and if not, you make a change. It’s all up to you. Like I said before, it’s been a long time coming, Aquarius. Time to use that forward thinking of yours.
TIP: Your own awareness of your current circumstances will be difficult to brush under the rug this time around, so take this opportunity to make a change. Whether big or small, take a step forward and rest easy knowing that you are on your way to a better life. It starts with you.
- The Lovers
- The World
- 3 of Pentacles
The cards can be interpreted in many different ways, as you know, and your cards are no exception. The first way which immediately strikes me is that you could be involved in a relationship with two separate people. Libra and Gemini, to be specific, if we wanted to go there. And for some of you, I’m sure that will resonate and you will feel freaked out with the accuracy of the cards-and if that is you, please send me a message. …Some of you Pisceans will likely not resonate with that interpretation, so allow me to move on to the next.
The second story I felt when reading your cards is a situation dealing with fairness, possibly even karma. A romantic relationship is likely to beat the core of the reading here, either way you look at it. It seems as though, time and time again, you are experiencing the same kind of interactions with people, and especially in relationships. The reason the world keeps spinning and season keep coming and you keep ending up at the same plkace is because you are meant to learn from these situations and people. You need to take a closer looka t the biggeer pictre of your situation and conjnections with those around you. Whether the experience is negative or positive, you are meant to view it with a set of wise eyes. This is the way to growth.
Working together with other and collaborating, the sharing of ideas and leaning on one another for growth in your perception of the world around and the projects at hand is key this month. It’s possible that you will learn most by being in the company of others at this time, so it is important that you do not isolate.
TIP: As a Pisces, your alone time is extremely important to you and required for your sense of well-being; Try to focus on outside energies and get out of your head, ask others what they think about things. This will aid you in your own understanding of this, sometimes chaotic and world.
