Hello Dear! As we start October so much tragedy has affected us and those we love. Hurricanes, shootings, exceedingly poor governmental response. It's hard to take in the magnitude and implications of these events.
Where can you find balance amongst the tragedy? Be involved and active, call your representatives, volunteer your time. And also, balance that with the care that is necessary for yourself, your loved ones, your family. This is just as crucial. Find the place where you are not denying your pain, but neither are you wallowing, mired in thick, sticky mud.

You'll find your card revealed, with my interpretation at the close of this newsletter.
Pause and breathe. Have you chosen your card for the October forecast? Do so now, before scrolling any further.
All 3 cards will provide insight for the month. The card you chose will be especially potent.
Card 1: Justice
In your personal life, where can you bring about more fairness and equality? Have your relationships been out of balance? This can go either way; perhaps you were giving too much or perhaps you were taking too much. Either way, this is a time to right the scales. Are you overworking and neglecting those you love? When your personal life is well managed you are able to show up in your public life in a more authentic and balanced way. You may well have important work to do in this world in service of Justice. Bringing important ideas, perspective and actions to create a more equal and just world is exceedingly important. Find the the point of balance in your own life, too. Take good care of yourself in order to give more freely.
Card 2: Two of Pentacles
Balance your money. This card asks that you do not spend unwisely and keep a close eye on your bank account. Where can you cut unnecessary spending? You are generous, yes, but remember that there are other ways to give than financially. It will not do to give money and resources that you dearly need. Be careful how you spend. Consider how you might bring in more money flow without exhausting yourself. Overgiving is not sustainable and won't help you be present and ultimately, unselfishly generous, in the world. Balance, balance, balance. Be fair to yourself.
Card 3: The Magician
Baby, you've got all the skills, resources and tools you need to create the future you want. That whole "Be the change you want to see in the world." could be your motto this month. You have the power to decide what you will do with these skills, whether to use them for good... or not. I recommend that you make sure your actions are in alignment with who you are, at your core, because it feels that actions you take now will have long-ranging implications. Are you shying away from your innate power? Consider why you do this, if so. How might you bring your unique skillset into the world in a bigger, more magically powerful way? How can you affect positive change in yourself, your community, the world overall?
