October is a month to smash through some of the tired old patterns, inside and around you. When I say smash I really do mean that some of the things we’re dealing with this month are literally in need of some force and aggression for them to end.
One can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs. There can be joy in the chaos that might ensue and there can be a feeling of being mean to others when stating boundaries, going back on agreements or negotiating salaries but it's all for the better in the end.
I encourage you to pursue some clear yes's and no's this month. Go check out classes or spaces you’ve been thinking about joining. Follow up on ideas and keep in touch with people you meet. Talk to people who can help you with your ideas, audition a new coach or ask someone for a date. A little risk can bring a lot of rewards in October.
If you have a lot of ‘nice person’ programming in your head this is an excellent time to simply try speaking your mind without filtering the message through the ‘what will they think’ filter. Try stating your needs and wants as non-negotiables. What do you need to make the different areas of your life work better?
Do you need a specific amount of time in the morning before the rest of the house wakes up?
Do you need a long hug from your partner before sitting down and looking at your finances?
Do you need more physical activity to feel good and alive every day?
Do you need an earlier bedtime and to wind down with a book instead of a screen?
Do you need to prioritize more intimate moments with yourself?
Do you need a raise and/or more delegation in your workspace?
This also feels like a great month to focus on your physical health. Get a massage to work the anger out of your shoulders or dance out the anxiety in your legs. You could check up on your supplements and even upgrade your skincare.
There is a need for grounding within this month's energies especially if some of the old patterns bring up grief and heartache for you. One of the ideas that have shown up in some of my recent sessions and in the collective is a fundamental belief that we as individuals are broken and bad.
I meet clients who when we dig a little deeper have a deep anchor into this belief. That they are shattered at their core or deep down a bad person. Which is not, has never been and will never be the truth. But it can be a belief we pick up from religion, our early childhood, or dysfunctional relationships. I see it in very accomplished people when they keep trying to reveal their ‘ugly side’ to me because their mind tells them they are fooling everyone and don’t deserve all the good in life. This belief sometimes ties into the imposter syndrome and it's ust damn time we let it go.
You are whole. You are worthy. You are loved. The world is better with you in it even on your worst days. Alright, I’ll step off the soapbox if you’ll go smash through this or any other tired old beliefs in October.
The cards for October are from both Grandma Baby's Black Gold Lenormand: First Edition, and Tosha Silver's Wild Offering Oracle Deck. The deck uses different words throughout for the Divine so feel free to replace them with your own if the one on the card doesn't quite resonate.
Inquirer - This card is a prayer to remember that each of us came here with a purpose, or even several! Your participation in this moment is critical. You were designed to be here, now. It's time you get clear on the why. If you've been operating under the idea you only have one purpose, it's time to get clear on the others. Check-in with yourself and what direction/action you need to take. Call down the memory of your spiritual self.
Health - Allow me, Divine, to be tender and accepting of my body no matter what ailments I may have. May I always know it's doing the best that it can. Help me be a loving ally and friend to this sacred form.
Moon - The people who came before us and our ancestors dreamed of a free, joyous, wild, and just future. That future is not here fully and yet the dream needs to be dreamt and kept alive to draw it closer to us. Are you taking time to dream and escape reality into a world where all are free?
