Autumn 2020 Tarotscopes
“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love - that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. [Letter to Miss Lewis, Oct. 1, 1841]"
― George Eliot, George Eliot's Life, as Related in Her Letters and Journals-Volume 1
There is something wonderfully evocative about the autumn season.
I love to walk and I engage with my Earth and the environment in a very different way than in the other seasons. There is also something poignant too. I lose the leaves from my lovely tree that gave the birds security and some shade for me not to mention a banquet for a host of other creatures. I lose the flowers and the colours that assured me the summer was as glorious as it is meant to be. I lose the long evenings of light and warmth…yet, there is so much to look forward to.
Here are the Autumn Tarotscopes that give us a peek of what is trending in our lives right now.
ARIES. QUEEN OF PENTACLES.
You may find yourself thinking about getting your home ready for the winter months ahead. Perhaps you are considering a refurb or even a move. It is a good time to put home life at the top of the agenda. Take some time to be in nature and reap the benefits of the great outdoors; space and beauty will serve you well. Take care of your well-being, make it a priority. Make good your energy and personal resources. Kind but firm leadership in career matters will get the desired results.
TAURUS. THREE OF WANDS.
This is a great time for planning growth and expansion. It will start with you building on your skills and talents. Ask yourself what are your goals, where do you want to be? You may find encouragement and support, enjoy the good regards, you have earned them. Whatever you put into projects or enterprises you will receive in return. There could be opportunities for travel, this can be a mixture of pleasure and professional. A wonderful time to spread the good news about you, what you can do and what you hope to achieve!
GEMINI. FOUR OF SWORDS.
Time out! Have a rest and build up your stamina. Perhaps you are losing sleep or overthinking or even putting energy into things that will not lead anywhere, stop! Consider what you need to do for yourself. Peace is a priority, others can take a back seat especially if you have been pleasing people of late. Now is your turn. There could also be a period of initiation or becoming prepared for a new venture or path. Get everything together, apply logic to that which has to be done, it will be mental energy well spent.
CANCER. KING OF SWORDS.
It may be that you are having to face issues head on. It will not serve you to be emotional or in denial. Logic and analytical thinking will show you the way forward. Problems always have a solution but sometimes we have to put mental effort into finding the answers. Your leadership skills are being questioned, work for the greater good, you will be required to step up, believe in yourself and show your abilities in their best light. This is a profitable time for courses and study, expect good results from continued effort.
LEO. SEVEN OF PENTACLES.
A time of harvest. Perhaps you are reflecting on what you have received and achieved for your efforts and spent energy. This is about accumulation after speculation and there is no hurry to let go of what we have gained, materially, spiritually or emotionally. There is power in prudence.
If you feel that you don't have what you want or require more, there are further opportunities ahead but it will need continued hard work but generous rewards will come as a result of your labours.
VIRGO. TEN OF WANDS.
Don’t take your burdens into the winter! You have way too much on your plate and it is slowing you down. Stop and breathe! Have a look at what you are dealing with. It is essential that you prioritise what truly requires your attention and that can be people, situations or plans.
Only carry that which will serve you and bear fruit, everything else is just superfluous. Your creative abilities will be a source of pleasure and satisfaction. Ensure that you have the time and energy and space to accomplish long held desires that will better your circumstances.
LIBRA. TWO OF PENTACLES.
The juggling around of all your life stuff is not the same as being in balance. There is simply not enough time or money or energy. It seems you are making a little go a long way but that is ok for now but do watch the stress levels. There is a lot going on for you and it is entirely possible that you are attempting too much so slow down and stop watching all the plates spin in the air. Everything will work out, with or without you, get your glad rags on and have fun, it is the best solution to stressful situations!
If you have been thinking about developing your spiritual path or intuitive gifts then the autumn months will be the best time to do this. A guide or mentor will point you in the right direction. Explore your own thoughts and insights with regards to your spiritual view of the world, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. If you have been feeling a bit all over the place then adopting some good habits or ritual will get things back on an even keel. Expect some spiritual revelations in the coming weeks.
SAGITTARIUS. THE HIGH PRIESTESS.
Trust your inner voice, this is your spirit guiding you in the right direction. It is indicated that exploring your ideas around healing both yourself and others will be rewarding. You will be going deeper into your pathworking and as a result it will all be less of a mystery.
Things will come to the surface, be it around people or work that need to come out. Think before you respond. Secrets have their own time for revelation. Everything is exactly as it should be.
CAPRICORN. KNIGHT OF SWORDS.
Think before you act! There is a thin line between bravery and foolishness. Courage and confidence are the key to everything. Swift action is indicated so if you have kick-started some plans then you can expect immediate results. Make sure you have all the facts before casting judgement, it will backfire if you repeat hearsay. Exercise and activities will ensure good health in the winter months.
AQUARIUS. THE LOVERS.
If you have been seeking romance then a new love interest is imminent, if you are already spoken for your relationship will enjoy a honeymoon period. Take some time out to recognise the things you like about yourself, you have been way too hard in the past. Your creative flair, be it in business or as a hobby, will demand attention, go with the flow and see where it takes you.
Any recent mental turmoil will be resolved by positive thinking allowing you to feel so much better and ready for anything!
PISCES. FIVE OF SWORDS.
Pick your battles well, this is not a time for crusades either socially or personally. Watch and wait to see what happens before taking any action. Maybe you are feeling suppressed or intimidated, adopting a positive mental approach to yourself will resolve this. Time to raise your self-esteem.
You can vanquish the enemy within that deters you from success, self sabotage is not helpful.
Avoid fighting in an empty house, you are a spiritual warrior and can do much good now. Your light is your gift to the world.
