October is the 10th month of the year. When referring to tarot numerology, the number 10 means beginnings and endings. October is a transitional month when Summer is officially over and Fall is just beginning. For this tarot card reading, I focused on what we should embrace, accept, and let go of during the month of October. Continue reading below to find out the predictions for the month ahead.
Before every tarot card reading I like to burn sage to clear any negative energies and to have the intention of a positive reading. I then shuffle the cards so the deck is fresh, spread them out evenly in front of me, and meditate for a few minutes before pulling the cards. This ritual really helps put me in the right state of mind for each reading and allows me to feel connected to the cards on another level.
Sometimes before even pulling the cards, I can feel a strong gravitation towards one area of the spread, as if the cards are telling me to pull from this specific area. I always pull cards with my non-dominant hand because it allows for me to trust my intuition. I was very excited and intrigued with the cards I pulled for the month of October. It felt very relatable and I knew the universe was watching over me as I pulled these specific cards.

Do not bottle up your emotions, but learn to express them in order to let go.
Letting go of this pain you are suffering from will then allow you to find your strength and clarity to move forward and rise above this situation.
