Happy Libra season! Every month I pick a tarot deck out of my collection and pick 12 cards from that correlate to each sign of the zodiac. This is #crushascope for October 2017 pulled with the Rider-Waite Tarot deck.       


You may be feeling blocked or rather suffocated by the ideas others are trying to enforce on you. This month will be a test of diplomacy and resourcefulness. How can you get what you want without rocking the boat and keeping the peace? Use your words. Speak up this month if you feel you’re being back into a corner but remember to keep your cool so you keep the upper hand. Feel free to explore solutions using your own tarot deck or via meditation.


Don’t deny your emotional side this month. Being a robot or trying to act overly happy will not work in your favor. You’ll be trying to prove a point by showing how strong you are in front of others. This may not work in your favor because you need vulnerability now more than ever. The support of people who love you is there. Put your pride to the side and don’t be afraid to show how you feel.


It’s a good month to create a solid routine that will assist you in achieving your goals. You may feel like you a hit a wall but it’s really an opportunity for you to see things outside of the box. Perhaps you need to re-visit, change, or add to your routine. It could also help to change things up and look or new spaces for work. You will have support from the loved ones in your home.


You will find October to be a month where you are cutting bad things and people out of your life in order to have peace. You have been struggling to express your feelings too and need to let people go who no longer have a positive impact on your life. You have a lot on your mind and a lot you need to get done. Make sure you are surrounded by the right people in the right places.


You’re feeling generous or will be on the opposite side and receive help from someone who loves you. Depending on which part of the spectrum you’re on, it will work in your favor. You’re meant to collaborate and enjoy the company of others. You’ll receive support and think of new interesting things to work on. Your opinion will be valued highly.


Things change for the better. You had been dealing with some hardship that wasn’t allowing you move forward. You have managed how to deal with things and people that have brought you negativity quite well. The good news is the shift is here. Expect for a new opportunity to appear out of nowhere or to hear of news that will work in your favor somehow. Things will be coming up Milhouse for you this fall so expect greatness.


You’re looking to make new connections this month. Your focus will be looking for new people to connect with. Things feel a bit stale and you want to collaborate with with people who share the same vision as you.


This will be a quite a romantic and harmonious month for you Taurus. Enjoy the time spent with you partner and loved ones. Go out and be social. Work will take a backseat because you are meant to relax and have a good time. Use this time to also create a fun costume for Halloween. If dressing up isn’t for you it might be a great idea to throw a party or potluck dinner this month. The big picture here is to enjoy the company of others.


This month, a wrong is made right. You will hear about karmic retribution. Perhaps, someone did you wrong or you were blamed for something that wasn’t your fault. Disengage from the drama if you haven’t already. October will also bring you extra luck in the love department as things can get more serious and finalized between you and your sweetheart. Sit down with a bucket of popcorn and watch everything unfold in your favor.     


Lay low this month. You may find yourself being bored with any opportunities that come your way. This is a good month to revisit old projects or focus on you for a change. People may disappoint you but you need to remember that you come first. It is okay to get some alone time in as you are extra sensitive and may need some time and space to gather your thoughts and get inspired. Journaling or doodling on the daily will help you get through this time too.   


This is a productive month to move forward with projects and plans. You have the tools you need and the connections too. Act now and set dates for the goals you want to set. Take control of your destiny and make sure you know what you are about to embark on with these new ideas. You will set the tone for your collaborations. Work on casting fear aside and bringing more proactive energy into your plans.


Be cautious to not overindulge in any of your vices. You also may come under fire with loved ones with some miscommunication. It may feel as though Mercury is in retrograde but it isn’t. Do your best to keep the peace and talk things out calmly. I cannot stress enough how important it is to also break bad habits or perhaps talk to someone who can help you break them. This will a month of strength and self-discovery. Conquer your inner demons so you can conquer the world.
