General: Experiencing, Stress, and The Burden
It's so easy to stress yourself out with everything that is going on in our lives, and it's fitting that the stress card pops up for the month that begins with Mercury retrograde, a typically stressful time. But often, the stresses that we have are self-created by our unrealistic expectations and perfectionism. We demand absolute perfection in ourselves, our partner, our children and families, our coworkers and bosses, our work performance and results. Everywhere we look, we want things to be perfect, but it's not going to happen, and this month, we need to work on releasing these unrealistic expectations. When you find yourself gravitating toward a "should" attitude, focus your mind elsewhere. The Experiencing card urges us to shut up and shut out our demanding world and minds so we can listen and the subtle messages all around us, in our bodies, in nature, and in the Universe. We miss these messages by focusing on what should be rather than what is.
Aries: Turning In
Sometimes, your biggest enemy is your mind. It twists and turns and messes you up in big ways before you even realize it, and it gets worked up over the smallest of things. Try to find some distance from your mind this month. As you gain a healthy distance, you begin to realize how ludicrous your mind is sometimes, and how much you've been bent out of shape over nothing. Laugh it off and maintain the objectivity that you gain.
There is so much in life that is truly amazing and inspiring and wonderful. Have you been missing that? Have you been wrapped up in so much else that you've missed the wonder of the world? You can work on that this month, and learn that by appreciating the wonder in the world because of all that you've learned through experience, you regain a sweet quality to yourself that you and others appreciate, and you find more joy everywhere you look.
If you keep telling yourself that now isn't the right time, you psych yourself out of doing it, and you're the thing in your way. You create your own insecurity and doubt without any help from others. Stop thinking about it. You've done enough thinking. Now, you need to start acting. The only way to eliminate the doubt is to stop making excuses and creating blocks. You can accomplish so much more than you think is possible when you get out of your own way.
You feel less afraid this month about exposing yourself to the world. You're willing to open up and let yourself be seen. You accept yourself for who you are, and through your acceptance of self and willingness to be open, you allow yourself to heal from old wounds and things that have held you back. As you heal, you learn how to heal others as well, spreading your healing energy, and helping the world and everyone in it.
The more you hurt yourself for nit living up to unrealistic expectations, the worse things become. You can work on letting go of these expectations this month, and you can help yourself when you do. Accept yourself as you are, flaws and all, and you free yourself to find your happiness and achieve what you want to achieve. Punishing yourself gets you nowhere, but letting go and accepting can get you far.
You've been working hard for what you want, putting in the extra hours and working yourself ragged, especially lately. You got to where you wanted to go, and actually finished something that you set out to do. Now, you look forward toward what you want to begin, but press pause right now. Enjoy this time where you're not pushing yourself, and let life be. You'll be back to working hard again in no time, so give yourself this moment.
Things have been difficult for you for the last few months, so come October, try to integrate your entire being. This helps you to feel whom, aligned, and balanced, ready to get life back on the right track. This can be a great month for you to turn things around, slowly but surely, and put together the building blocks of abundance. You can help others to create abundance in their lives as well.
Scorpio: Letting Go
Whenever something is coming to an end, there can be a sense of sadness about no longer having this in your life, even if it's a good thing that it's over. You can experience a little sadness now over something you finished or are finishing, but that's okay. Acknowledge and accept what you're feeling, and then let it go. Great new adventures and possibilities await you, and you have so much to look forward to still.
Sometimes we feel like if we're not in complete control, everything will fall apart. We want everything to be perfect, and we go overboard with trying to make that happen. If you find yourself doing that in October, stop yourself quickly. Let things happen in their own time and way, and while that may mean it won't go perfectly, that doesn't mean it won't work the way that it should. Let go and have some faith.
You do the right thing as much as you can. You're the sign of maturity, responsibility, and you're hard working, focused, and disciplined. Doing the right thing pays off, and it will if you continue to do it. There are opportunities all around you because of it, and more opportunities come your way going forward. Keep doing the right thing in October, and stay on track.
You may be tempted to hold in what you're feeling right now, bottling it up and bottling it up, but eventually, you will explode. Try to avoid that in October by giving yourself an outlet for your emotions. They can be a good thing when they have a proper outlet, and they don't have to feel so terrible. They only do because you try to avoid feeling them, but if you let yourself feel them trough a healthy outlet when they come to you, they won't feel so bad.
Pisces: Clinging to the Past
The more we focus on the past, the more life passes us by and we miss out on awesome things in the present. Try to live in the moment more in October, and worry less about the past. The past is over now, and you worry for nothing. As long as you learned the lessons that you needed to learn, you don't have to focus on it anymore. Live in the now, dream about the future, and move on.
