This Might Hurt Tarot

Spread + Weekly Reading for Oct 7-13

It’s October break for my kiddo, so I have a lot of time this week to write and focus on getting some sewing done. This will hopefully mean a shop update will happen sometime this week, finally! I’m trying out a new spread for my weekly reading this week, it’s kind of a mash up of other weekly spreads, but just more focused on what I want to look at most. I’m also switching the focus to these being more personal for me, but if you resonate with this reading as well, that’s awesome!! Please let me know in the comments what hit the spot for you, I’d love to hear!

Lately I’ve been loving the Fox Universe Tarot + This Might Hurt Tarot paired up, so I’m using both in this reading! There’s a spread illustration at the bottom of this post - feel free to share!

Psst… You can still pre-order This Might Hurt Tarot - ships out October/November! Check it out HERE


Self-Care Focus

Deck: Mystic Mondays

SHAME

I so badly wanted to shuffle this card back in the deck since I didn’t think it involved me, whatsoever… but really, I do indeed feel a big sense of shame and regret for just simply being myself on most days. I’m constantly trying to push myself back into a box and fill my head with nonsense, and I really need to change this language with myself. I should not feel any shame or self-hate for simply being myself, plain and simple.

Overall Energy

THE HIEROPHANT

I rarely pull the Hierophant for myself in readings, so it’s always interesting to see when it does show up. I’m the student this week! The Hierophant is here to notion me to stay focused on a path of learning and stick to the rules… for the record, I hate rules. I can change or break them later, but this week I need to stay focused with a more structured curve. I’m for sure one to do my own thing and go off the beaten path, but lately I have indeed been craving some structure - especially when it comes to my own personal path. This should be an interesting energy this week!

This could also be saying that I shouldn’t hack my Tamagotchi this week and play by the rules, haha!

CHALLENGE I MAY FACE

THE CHARIOT

The Chariot is usually my go-to card when I need to push myself! It looks like it’s here this week to do just that! The Chariot is that friend whose always looking out for you and knows what’s best for you when you don’t, so it pushes you to step out of your comfort zone… even when you don’t want to do the things that you know you should be doing. So ya, the Chariot’s here this week to remind me to keep pushing myself a little bit further each time I feel resistance and know deep down that I got this! Don’t let intimidation be the reason I hold myself back.

Last week’s unfinished business

9 OF SWORDS + TIME MANAGEMENT

I so wish I knew what I did last week or how I was thinking, it’s all a total blank to me if I’m being honest. So when I pulled the 9 of Swords in this reading, I decided to pull a card from my oracle to give me a little insight as to what this was all about - Time Management, bingo! I’m horrible with managing my time and doing things more efficiently, it always ends with me freaking out and scrambling last minute. This week I’m being told to really stick with a better plan and get my shit together to save me the headache that I caused last week… and the week before, and so on! This is actually a perfect week to do just that since my daughter’s off school all week, so getting my planner prepped and creating a better aligned routine is key if I want to free up any unnecessary stress!

Hello, October!

Wow, it feels like I was just talking about September, and here I am talking about October… last month flew by quick! I have so much going on this month and I’m excited for it all but also worry I may have bitten off more than I can chew… but only time will tell! I aim to keep the momentum going though.

I’m wrapping up a 10 day tarot challenge that I joined last month, it’s hosted by one of my favorite tarot peep’s, Thomas of Hermits Mirror. This is actually the first tarot challenge that I will have done fully (meaning, actually finish it), I usually throw in the towel after a few days but I’m determined! I’m having so much fun that I started the October Tarot challenge hosted by Lionharts on Instagram yesterday! I’m excited and set on seeing this one through to the end.

This month I’ll be getting super cozy with the This Might Hurt tarot by Isabella Rotman! I’m using it for the October tarot challenge and alongside the book Pathworking the Tarot by Leeza Robertson! I was sent an early copy to review and share, yes please! This deck is still up for pre-order and ships out in October-November! I’m working on a full review of this deck for the Indie Deck Review and a little post here on the blog with my own personal thoughts. I’m also using this deck for this months tarotscopes! Woohoo!!

Moons

This month we have a Full Moon in Aries on October 13th at 2:08pm PST (5:08 pm EST) and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th at 8:39 pm PST (11:39 pm EST). At the end of the month we have Samhain/Halloween! Yay!!

Ok, let’s dive into some tarotscopes, shall we?

DECKS: Moon Oracle + Spirit Speak

ARIES // The Wheel of Fortune
October is blowing in some fresh energy and switching gears this month for you! Are you ready? If you have been waiting for some things to shift, it’s finally here so hold on and enjoy the ride!

TAURUS // 7 of Wands
You are asked to bring forth your boundaries and strength as you move through October, don’t let your guard down and stay alert. The 7 of Wands is all about protecting what’s most important to you so keep your energy protected.

GEMINI // 4 of Pentacles
This would be a great time to save your resources and do a little tight spending, save it for something you truly want or need - don’t just give it out freely. Sometimes reaching for our wallet or credit cards comes out of habit, what happens if you resist these urges to spend, spend, spend?

CANCER // Ace of Cups
October is all about connecting with new people and forming fresh relationships - whether it’s in the form of friends, dating or partners. Pay close attention to your heart this month and see where it lead you!

LEO // 8 of Swords
If you’re feeling cut off and restricted, it may be a good idea to examine your current situation. Who has the keys to your cage? Often times you will find that you hold those keys! It may be a great time to start exploring your options and reasons for why you feel so stuck in place.

VIRGO // Temperance
Moderation is key… how about two cups of coffee instead of four? Is that message just for me? Ok… Don’t fret on making things perfect, it’s ok if things get a bit messy this month. The main focus is to keep consistency flowing and keep harmony moving.

LIBRA // 3 of Swords
Pain won’t heal in a day, take your time and process through what needs to be processed. If you are not faced with any heartbreak this month, reach out to those who may be. Take your time this month processing any hurt or ill feelings, this is not a race.

SCORPIO // Page of Coins
Whatever your focus is set on, it’s time to start exploring it! Whether it’s a new craft or area of study, this is a great time to dive deep and learn a new skill. You never know what you will fall in love with until you try it out and see if it works for you. If there is a class you have been wanting to sign up for, the Page of Coins says lets do it!

SAGITTARIUS // The Hanged Man
If you’re finding yourself stuck in the same routine or pattern, it’s time to flip things over and get a better view. Perspectives change everything with how we look at situations or problems we face. This is a month of patience and letting things stew over a bit.

CAPRICORN // Strength
A gentle touch and confidence is what is being asked for you to bring forth this month. It’s time to pull yourself together and breath. Take a long, deep breath and say “I am strong and I am confident” - this is easier said that done, so be patient with yourself and above all, resist the urge to push things into place.

AQUARIUS // 5 of Coins
If you have a savings account or resources available to you, it may be time to tap that well. It’s there for a reason, right? There is no shame in admitting you need a little help or boost, so reach out if you need to! If you want to do it alone, see what is already available to you and get crafty AF!

PISCES // The Empress
Pour your love and attention into what you want to grow or create. Whether it’s a book you want to write, a project you want to try, or even a little extra self love for yourself - do it! Breathe life into whatever you are passionate about, including yourself!
