Give me ALL the Fall! Crisp air, pumpkins, hot chocolate, Halloween (Samhain), colorfully crunchy leaves, sweaters, silky scarves, and the season of gratitude - these are all reasons I LOVE Autumn! Can't you feel the magick in the air? As the leaves change and fall, I offer you these Tarotscopes for the warm and inviting months ahead. So curl up by the fire with your pumpkin spice latte and enjoy!

What's the vibe surrounding your sign this Fall? Make sure to read the Tarotscope for your Moon and Rising Signs in addition to your Sun sign to get a more complete picture of the energy you may be working with this Autumn! For the Tarotscopes this season, I will be using the Tarot Apokalypsis (Lo Scarabeo) and as a BONUS treat (because this is my favorite season) I have decided to add an additional oracle card for each sign from The Halloween Oracle (Blue Angel Publishing). YAY!

Aries | 4 of Cups + Invisibility

Authenticity...

aries-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Have you become bored Aries? Are you struggling to find your way to stand out in a crowd? The best way to do that is to be authentic. Just be you! Don't worry about being seen by others this season. Find security in yourself. Are you doing something because you feel obligated but not because your heart and soul is in it? What do you truly want to do? When we do things out of a sense of obligation, we can lose steam easily. Focus on bringing more authentic expression to your life. Your life can't possibly be boring when you focus on expressing how you feel in all the true colors of who you are instead of repressing it.

 

Taurus | 7 of Pentacles + Jack O'Lantern

Protection...

taurus-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

You reap what you sow Taurus. It is time to evaluate past actions and whether they have bared fruit. Is there anything worth saving? Anything worth building on? Don't compare your progress to others - your harvest is your own. Protect your assets and investments this month. Also know that you are loved and protected. Don't allow worries, fears, doubts, or thoughts of not being good enough to creep in. Work with black tourmaline, obsidian, or black kyanite for an extra boost of protective energy when you feel that you need it this season.

 

Gemini | 6 of Swords Reversed + Joy

Rejoicing in the present...

gemini-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

This Fall, there seems to be a knowledge of the need to move on but you may outwardly be standing still Gemini. The transition is happening within. Instead of worrying about if you are in the right place or moving towards the future, focus on living in the present. By living in the present this season, it will help you to re-evaluate what is of importance in your life. Take time to breathe. By taking a step back and focusing on joy, you may find the answer that you have been looking for.

 

Cancer | The Empress + Skull of Darkness

Blind spots...

cancer-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Send love to yourself this Autumn, Cancer! Send love to others as well. This season is a time of nurturance. It is also a season to see where you may be missing some loving thoughts and actions in your life. Are you receiving the love that you wish to receive? Are you giving the love you wish to give? And in all that giving and receiving of love, make sure to dole out some of that to yourself as well. Spoon it in with daily affirmations and replacing lower vibrational thoughts with higher ones. Where would you like more love, tenderness, and guidance in your life? How can you give that to yourself?

 

Leo | Justice + Skull of Flowers

Creating through the ashes...

leo-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Justice comes to play for you this season Leo. Whether things work out the way you expect them to or not, be mindful that you can overcome. You can rebuild. New things are waiting to be planted now that lady justice has leveled her scales. The playing field is even now - even if you have to start from scratch. This energy is prime for rebirth and renewal. Like the scorched earth of the forest after a fire, new life will eventually sprout.

 

Virgo | 8 of Wands + Graveyard

Unnecessary fear...

virgo-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Go! Onward, Virgo! Leap forward, take the step. All the 'what-ifs', and 'I don't knows' are unnecessary fears. Energy and time will be moving quickly for you this Autumn. Don't waste it feeding and feeling trepidation. Things may be whirling around you so much and happening so quickly that your head is spinning. It may cause you to want to stay in place, frozen in fear. Learn to work with this energy to your advantage. You can get a lot accomplished this season if you stay organized, focused, and believe in yourself.

 

Libra | Queen of Wands + Trick or Treat

Mischief and play...

libra-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Don't be afraid to let your hair down and have a little fun this Autumn, Libra! It's okay to have a little fun, but remember your responsibilities. Otherwise, the treat might turn into a trick! It's like going out on Halloween night, making sure your costume is top notch, strutting your stuff from house to house to ensure you get the most candy, and then going home and binging on it. Don't do it! It may be fun now, but you'll be sick in the morning. Try to keep your impulses in check. Everything in moderation. You don't want overindulgence to steal your shine this season.

 

Scorpio | 2 of Cups Reversed + Skull of Light

Illumination...

scorpio-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

It looks like we may be shining a light on our relationship dynamics this season Scorpio. What is just not working in your relationships? Is there a communication issue? Is one of you more emotional or 'in tune' while the other is more logical and out of touch with their feelings? This Autumn will be a time of trying to balance relationships - especially those of great importance to us. There will also be realizations this season as to whether things may be reconcilable or not. This may be a sensitive time for you, so make sure to take good care of yourself. Focus on what is for the best and highest good of all involved.

 

Sagittarius | The Wheel Reversed + Eternal Love

Love is love is love and it transcends physical death...

sagittarius-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

As the wheel of the year turns again, the seasons change, the leaves fall away. This Fall will have a huge focus on love - love lost, love found, love that has changed shape. As the veil thins, you may be more aware of your loved ones in spirit surrounding and extending their love to you. Know that all things have a cycle. Things may be last for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Energy never dies, it is simply transformed. Give thanks and gratitude this Autumn for the loving presences in your life - your parents, children, spouse, friends, fur babies, loved ones in spirit, even the woman who always smiles and waves when you pass her on the street.

 

Capricorn | 6 of Pentacles + Barmbrack

Sweetness and synergy...

capricorn-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Weigh your options carefully Capricorn. Allow for an even exchange of energy to take place. You are creating the alchemy of your life. Your life is a recipe! Would you like to add more love? How about more honesty? Do you feel called to be more generous? You are the chef! How can you work with others more this Fall? How can you share your resources and bring more positivity to those around you? Open up more space for giving and sharing in your life this Autumn. You could even volunteer in a food drive or donate your time to a homeless shelter! Doing these things make you feel good and they also help to balance energy.

 

Aquarius | The Tower + Zombie

Control...

aquarius-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Release the need for control this season Aquarius. That may feel hard to do right now, especially if you feel that things are out of control or crumbling around you. Don't allow situations that are out of your control to change who you are and make you feel like less of yourself! Sometimes when we feel that we can't get bearings on a situation, it is easier to shut down or find an escape than to accept the situation for what it is. We can't micromanage everything. Occasionally, the Universe likes to shake us up to wake us up! To teach us how to be more in the flow. This Autumn, be more accepting of change and less rigid.

 

Pisces | Death + Forgiveness

Reducing burden...

pisces-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

It seems like there will be some healing energy surrounding you this Autumn, Pisces. Transforming and changing the way you look at others, situations from the past, and your roles in them. Stripping away what is no longer you. In finding forgiveness for ourself and for others, we free ourselves from carrying the burdens of guilt, grief, anger, resentment, ego, fear, and so much more. These things only weigh us down on our journey. When we find forgiveness, true forgiveness, we can finally release and begin to heal more deeply than ever before.

Dead leaves | Transformation

- What needs to Fall away? What do you need to crunch underfoot?

My Card: Release

I am currently in the process of releasing lots of things from the past and the present. As I release these things, I need to truly let them go and not keep thinking about them. This feels like I need to just keep moving forward and not look behind me.

Bonfire | Warm + Toasty

- Where will things be heating up for you this Autumn?

My Card: Opportunity Beckons

Yay! Looks like some new opportunities may be coming up this Fall! This feels like a reminder to keep fueling my fire and passion. Doors will be opening on the other side of the release. I can't walk through them if I'm looking back at what I've already let go of.

Pumpkin Pie | Savor This

- Where is the sweetness?

My Card: Choose Your Battles

I have been definitely learning how to choose my battles wisely lately! It is just not worth the time or energy to feed into another's negativity. This resonates with me as a message of protection as the Wheel of the Year turns yet again. It is also a reminder to not let ego control my words or actions when my pride may be hurt.

Horror Film | Fear + Anxiety

- Where are you afraid? What are you hiding from?

My Card: Feeling Alone

*Sigh

. Yes, Universe, I know this is something that always comes up for me. This is definitely a fear of mine and one I have been working through for many years. I guess this Autumn will be no different lol. Progress has been made, but there is always work to do.

Hot Cocoa | Comfort

- Where can you bring more comfort to yourself?

My Card: Seek

I love this card! It totally feels like sitting in quiet meditation, chatting with my spirit guides, and conversing with the birds. Feeling Mother Nature's energy and seeking peace inside of it! This Fall may be a time of learning and seeking out new information.

Horn of Plenty | Gratitude

 - Where should you be more thankful? How can you focus more on gratitude?

My Card: Embrace

I need to embrace situations for what they are - both the good and the bad. To honor the balance in all things. This is a reminder to embrace others and love them as I wish to be embraced and loved. To connect with the collective and the collective unconscious. This also encourages me to send healing to others/the world as a show of gratitude for the blessings I have in my life.
