Whether or not you believe in the stars, horoscopes or astrology, monthly forecasts usually resonate in some way. Our regular star-sign forecasts by Sharan (tarotbysharan.com) are actually based on tarot, so they’re a little bit different. We’ve been a fan of Sharan for years, so, if you’re in need of a little guidance, she might just be the card for you!
LIBRA (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
Sometimes when you hit a brick wall and feel unsure about which direction to take, the best thing to do is to revisit the drawing board. Use your unbiased logic and ask yourself if your aspirations are grounded, whether your expectations are set too high, if you lack the capability and expertise to get to the next level, or if you need training or the help of someone else who has experience in the field. You do all that it takes to achieve success this month, be it correcting your approach or educating yourself on what you feel you lack; you leave no stone unturned to get on track with life again.
SCORPIO (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
Trust your instincts as you navigate the month ahead. The focus is on the home and family. Growing your pot to take care of your family takes centre stage. Strategy is important this October. Avoid trying to reach the unreachable; work within your means. It’s fine to dream and have ambitions but it won’t be right to expect to achieve them overnight. That’s where strategy and intuition will come in. Feel your way through the month, and you will be led to success in your time.
SAGITTARIUS (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
This month, you’re forced to face your emotions. You have been treading along in life without thinking twice. You haven’t mustered the energy to face the cause of your unhappiness. Things as you know them will come to a sudden end, forcing you to feel what you have been avoiding for a long time. Research what brings you joy and work on pursuing that. This is a second chance to feel happy in your life and to grant your own wishes.
CAPRICORN (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
You finally find the strength to get over an emotional issue that you have harboured ill feelings over this month. It’s been hard work but you are tired of wallowing, and you realise that moving forward is the healthier option. Seeking support from a professional body or just someone you can open up to will be helpful in the healing process. Give yourself a pat on the back for taking the first step towards your healing process.
AQUARIUS (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
You’ve had a difficult last few months. So take this month to recuperate and regain your energy before you embark on your new project. You’re brimming with ideas and enthusiasm about a new project that brings opportunities for growth and expansion. Try not to get ahead of yourself but pace yourself instead. Use logic and emotional maturity to work through things this month. Also, avoid putting all your eggs in one basket; instead, allow yourself space to be flexible with your options.
PISCES (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
There is a sense of completion this month. A dream that you have envisioned turns into reality. Something that you’ve been passionate and unsure about before has manifested. There have been times of self-doubt but you have stabbed your way in the dark with sheer determination and found your way to achieving your dream. You may say it’s luck but it can also be the strength of your optimistic mind and determination that sees your efforts bear fruit.
ARIES (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
You realise there is no better authority for yourself than your own self! So take charge of things and begin a plan of embarking on a new journey. Enough faffing around and thinking about doing things. Work out your options and just go for it. It’s an exciting month, because for a change you are in the driver’s seat and directing your path ahead.
TAURUS (20 Apr – 20 May)
As an ever-practical Taurus, you’re about to do something out of the box this month: allow your emotions to guide your decision making. It’s going to be a very refreshing change. The month is focused on building abundance and you will be doing it in the most creative way possible. It’s a good time to experiment with methods or combine different methods to reach your desired result. It’s all about trying different ways of doing things this month.
GEMINI (21 May – 20 Jun)
It’s decision-making time this October. It’s not going to be your usual logical decision-making either, but will instead require a combination of your intuition and logic. You are on a path of self-discovery and growth. Pursue what you’re passionate about and doors will just open. It’s not just a money-making opportunity that you’re seeking; it’s more of an opportunity where you find yourself bursting with happiness – and, as a bonus, something that allows you to grow emotionally and spiritually too.
CANCER (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
You have made a decision to strip yourself of self-limiting beliefs and embrace abundance. Your attitude has shifted from one of not deserving to fully deserving of the goodness that life has to offer. Your emotions are well balanced and you aren’t going to let things that don’t work out in your favour get you down. You have endured a fair bit of hardship to get to where you are, so be nice to yourself and treat yourself where you can.
LEO (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
Unfortunately, it’s not one of the best months emotionally for Leo. You may experience a sudden end to something – and not an end you were expecting at all. It may not be easy to accept this, and it may leave you feeling victimised. It’s a big struggle to get over it because there is an element of you feeling like you’ve been treated unjustly. Defend your reaction if you must. It will be helpful to avoid being extreme with your actions; instead, be patient and practice moderation when moving forward. This experience will give you the gift of valuable wisdom.
VIRGO (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
It’s a month of reviewing your business and working relationships. Pause before you make any career- or businessrelated decisions this October. Take into consideration that you are in a Mercury Retrograde month, so it may be a wise idea to put all business plans on hold while you work out what the best way forward is. For example, do you need to be in partnership? Are you feeling stifled, or would you much prefer to spread your own wings and go with your own ideas instead of feeling obliged to please your other business half? Think through your options with patience and emotional maturity. You’ll find that you can actually do this on your own!
