After the grounding and earthy energy of Virgo Season  we found ourselves within the turbulent effects of Mercury Retrograde which will begin to shift on Oct 1.  Welcome to Libra season 2022  which brings with it the balance of light and dark which accumulate during the liminal event of the Fall equinox 2022. How will you integrate and balance all of these conflicting energies as you move into the month of October? 


A tarotscope is simply a tarot reading with a card pulled for each astrological star sign. It’s a bit like a horoscope but with tarot thrown in the mix. I will be pulling one tarot card from the legendary Rider-Waite deck for each and every one of you lovely zodiacal beings. This beautiful and concise deck has 78 cards, made up of minor and major arcana. Each card has a different meaning when it's upside down, or reversed as we say in tarot.

Here is your tarotscope for your star sign for October 2022!

Read on for your star sign’s forecast.

Tarot card:  Reversed Judgement

Message:  Stop being so hard on yourself!

Dear Aries, your inner critic could have a tendency to be in full force this month. Catch yourself when you are finding yourself stuck in a loop of negative self-talk. If goals that you were working towards didn’t pan out quite the way you desired, take it as an opportunity to be compassionate towards yourself and avoid being harsh on yourself. 

Mantra: ‘I am enough’


Tarot card:  Knight of Swords

Message: Take action

Get moving Taurus! Your tarotscope in October 2022 is all about taking action. When the Knight of Swords appears, it is literally a green light from the universe. If you’ve been hesitant about moving forward with a specific decision, this is a prompt to go for it. Trust that the universe has your back, get onto your horse, and charge ahead. 

Mantra: ‘I am taking action’


Tarot card:  Six of Pentacles

Message: Be generous 

Flowy Gemini, the wonderful energy of generosity is around you for the month of October. When you give, you receive in return..This feedback loop of energy will bring a positive shift into your life as you realise how effective this law of magick is. Engage in small acts of kindness and watch the universe respond. Be mindful to lean into this energetic exchange with the goodness of your heart and not to show off as it taints the energy! 

Mantra: ‘I am giving’ 


Tarot card: Ten of Swords

Message: End of a chapter 

It's all about the end of a chapter for you this month lovely Cancerian. Do not be alarmed though, the end of a chapter can be a very healing time that brings closure and helps your soul evolve with the valuable lessons learned. Allow for extra self-care and compassion this month as the chapter closes and look to the horizon as the light of the golden dawn is breaking. 

Mantra:  ‘I am closing this chapter’ 


Tarot card: The World

Message: Time for integration 

As we draw closer to the end of the year, The World card invites you to integrate your experiences over four key astrological seasons. Reflect back and make note of everything that you have accomplished during Scorpio season 2021, Aquarius season 2022, Taurus season 2022 and Leo season 2022. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back! This integration is important as you step out into 2023 as it will set you up for new projects. 

Mantra: ‘I am accomplished’ 


Tarot card: Nine of Cups

Message: Gratitude

What a lucky month for you lovely Virgo! You may find that something that you’ve been wishing for manifests this month. Count your blessings. They abound. If you are wanting to shift a low seasonal mood, practice gratitude every morning when you wake up. Name one thing that you feel grateful for, send out love, and feel the energy shift! 

Mantra: ‘I am grateful’ 


Tarot card: Reversed Queen of Swords

Message:  Be mindful of your moods 

Peacekeeping Libra, your emotional well-being is coming into focus this month. If you are feeling extra moody be mindful to not lash out at those around you. It will only create regret. Spend some time leaning into your self-care if you are feeling emotionally triggered or irritable. Try a soothing bath with rose petals (a Libra flower!) with a guided meditation to help restore emotional balance. 

Mantra: ‘I am emotionally balanced’


Tarot card: The Emperor

Message: Create structure

The demands of the month of October are going to require some organized structure for you dear Scorpio. If chaos is the energy that you are navigating, then it’s time to reign it in and assemble it in a working and structured order. Take this as a challenge to not get overwhelmed by the workload and the dramas. Take a deep breath in, get strategic and take charge of your life. Your future self will thank you for this! 

Mantra: ‘I am structured’


Tarot card:  Five of Wands

Message: Disagreements 

There’s nothing wrong with a bit of sparring but when disagreements reach levels of bedlam then it’s time to take a step back and reevaluate. Also, if you find yourself locking horns with others over creative differences perhaps try to really listen to their point of view. We can all learn from others' ideas. The best way forward is to try to recalibrate because too many chefs in the kitchen can create disarray. 

Mantra:  ‘I let go of conflict’ 


Tarot card:  Four of Swords

Message: Rest and respite 

Hard-working Cappy, it’s time to take a break this month. Rest and recuperation are very important to physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Limit your social events and spend more time at home relaxing, reading books, and listening to podcasts. Take up meditation or get into journaling. The key is to pull away from the external world and go inwards.

Mantra: ‘ I am taking a break’.


Tarot card:  Wheel of Fortune

Message:  A Turning Point 

Dear Aquarius, you’ve got quite a bit of luck on your side this month. The Wheel of Fortune brings with it a turning point in your life. The end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Doors are opening for you and synchronicities are abundant. Enjoy the chance meetings and lucky breaks that it brings! 

Mantra: ‘ I embrace this turning point’ 


Tarot card: The Hanged Man

Message: Surrender 

Lovely Pisces, the Hanged Man is inviting you to surrender. Are there things in your life that you are tightly gripping and controlling? It’s time to let go and trust the universe to do its work. There is an energy of pause this month too. A chance to stop and reflect. What is working for you and what is not. In these moments of pause is where you will receive insights. 

Mantra: ‘I let go’
