When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.Audre Lorde
At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and October’s card is MESSENGER OF AIR.
October is a month for developing clear future vision. You’ll be able to build on what you have already decided or created for yourself this year, aided by a deep knowing and intuition.
This is a month for believing in yourself and your dreams and investing energy in thinking about where you will take yourself and your dreams next. Signs and messages are all around you to light your way or to validate decisions and choices already made. It’s also a month where prayers will be answered and Divine Inspiration will visit you in unusual and wonderful ways.
There is a sense of ecstatic union with the Universe this month. You’ll find a deepening of emotional connection to loved ones, projects or to your spiritual journey. At the same time your emotions will be just under the surface, so expect to feel more easily affected by the pain of the world, or by cruelty and indifference in general. Try not to get caught up in that.
Keep living from your heart and honouring your own needs, even as you tend to those around you. Feed your emotions with nature, art, love and spiritual connection.
Old pains and fears will also bubble to the surface in October ready to be released. If something comes up for you that feels like work you’ve already done or healed know that you are not going back into old patterns but releasing these last lingering traces of old energies now that you are stronger. Meditation and quiet time is vital for self-management and growth this month. Use music as a tool to modulate your moods and support your continuing journey.
Best crystals this month? – Labradorite and Chrysocolla
Labradorite is a stone for deepening mystical connection, intuition and soul wisdom. It brings understanding and helps you to think deeply, boosting intellectual capacity.
Chrysocolla helps you to release negative energy and old patterns, bringing love, light and healing into your world. It is a gently positive and reassuring stone that promotes self care.

October gifts you focus, and helps you to begin that important process of consciously manifesting a more satisfying and meaningful life for yourself. Feel into your intuition this month, and trust it as an important guiding tool for your life. Let your intuition and Universal wisdom help to position you for a strong year in 2020.
