Tarot Scope for the Week Ahead: October 9th to October 15th, 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 week number 41: October 9th to October 15th, 2023.

Card of the week: The Eight of Pentacles

We are working so hard right now. Like, this is kinda amazing? I love to see this on a collective level!

Eights are usually very much to do with the commitment to our motivation, to do things quickly and move swiftly in the direction that we want to. We’ve made the decision, we’ve been working hard, and now we are starting to plan to reap our individual and collective harvests.

This week, the Eight of Pentacles shows us that our dedication and hard work is paying off. We are making progress towards our goals and seeing tangible results from our efforts. This may manifest in various areas of our lives, such as career, finances, or personal growth. For me, I’d say that this is working out in terms of being “out there” for personal interactions – something my hermit-mode finds uncomfortable yet so necessary to my own development!

However, this card also does remind us to stay focused and committed to our tasks. As much as we love to go pumpkin picking right now, what if we just continued to let them grow a little longer? What if we spent a bit more time in the garden and getting our hands dirty? The Eight of Pentacles reminds us that success and growth requires consistent effort and dedication – it’s not always about a quick finish.

But don’t worry, this card also brings a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. We love seeing the fruits of our labor, and it feels good. Take some time to celebrate your progress and give yourself credit for all that you have accomplished so far my lovely!

I would recommend checking out Alison for courses (free or budget!!) that provide tangible diplomas and accreditations that will help you on your way – just sign up for free here and take a look at what they have to offer you; they even have a resume builder, which is really bloody helpful!
  • Photography idea: Capture images that depict craftsmanship, or intricate details from a workshop, or simply the beauty that can be found in the dedication to your work.
