Tarot Scope for the Week Ahead: September 25th to October 1st 2023

Published on October 16, 2023

Every week, I pull a card for the community and offer my thoughts on what the Tarot is predicting for us this week. Additionally, I recommend some cute things to do this week which are inspired by whichever card I pull!

This is my free tarot reading for the week number 39: September 25th to October 1st 2023

Card of the week: The Upright Death Card

As the season turns, and the wheel too, we begin a new form of transformation in our lives. Maybe last few week’s Swords energy is still carrying over to help us with reaping the rewards of risks worth taking regardless of conflict? Maybe the Death card is a literal death – you’ve finished a project, you’ve left a partner, or you’re letting go of what doesn’t serve you any more.

What this means for the collective this week, is generally a soothing calm, and not a terrifying halt – a pause and time for reflection, a necessary death of the old to create space for something new.

This week is about shedding what doesn’t serve us any more and not looking back. Patterns and mindsets we don’t consciously subscribe too anymore… we’re getting unsubscribed. If we take this card as an invitation to turn over a new leaf, then we are able to move into our future with confidence that whatever comes – we come prepared. This week may even be a dark one babe, but let us be thankful for the light of clarity and understanding this card brings.

Let us move forward with courage, trusting that what comes next will be full of growth, expansion and purpose – if we are brave enough to take it on.

Sometimes it’s necessary to let go so you can make way for something better.
