First of all, I’m trying out a new deck this week. It’s called the Golden Botticelli Tarot and although the images aren’t very traditional, I’m a sucker for art history inspired decks and I find this one particularly beautiful. However, the cards are gold plated, which is why a lot of the designs appear black. So I’m on the fence about if I want to use this as my fall deck or not. I’ll see how people respond to the deck online. As always, Magdalena Tarot does not claim the rights to any of these images. If you like it, let me know because I’m on the fence about changing decks. I like to switch up the decks I use for the forecast at least once a season.
It’s the 43rd week of the year and the card of the week is the 9 of Pentacles. The 9 of Pentacles traditionally features a beautiful young woman who is surrounded by the riches in life. She keeps a hawk who comes and goes at it pleases. The car represents freedom and abundance. Many of the aspects for this week involve choosing a direction that you want to go in. Now that Mercury Retrograde is over, you have the freedom to make bold moves forward as the restrictive energy that comes along with Mercury Retrograde lifts. The number of the week is 7, and you will also be given the insight to see what’s holding you back as well as access your progress.

Sunday 10/11/15 Wheel of Fortune
Moon Enters Libra 1:46 AM PST
The Moon and Sun are both in the balanced sign of Libra so you’ll enjoy a double shot of love and beauty today. Attractions will be high and it’s a great time for taking your chances and meeting new people. Hence, the Wheel of Fortune, a card of chance. Go into things with a good attitude and Fortuna will smile on you and the aspects for the day verify this. In Medieval times, the Wheel of Life was thought to rule the different stages of a human’s life. The Moon, the first stage, rules growth, and it’s interesting because the New Moon is tomorrow. Therefore this signals that this upcoming lunar cycle will provide much growth if you follow the stars accordingly. The early morning hours will bring increased sensitivity due to Moon sextile Saturn but this could help you collect your thoughts about the changes that happened during Mercury Retrogarde. Jupiter trine Pluto at 4:37 PM PST will motivate you to make positive changes and take control of your life. Sun opposition Uranus will further help you make decisions about the direction you want to go in. If your meet unexpected surprises, roll with it and let yourself experience any emotions that come to the surface. The number of the day is 2, a number of balance.
Mantra: I’m ready to take a chance on change.
Monday 10/12/15 Queen of Swords
Moon Void of Course 5:06 PM PST
New Moon 5:06 PM PST
The Queen of Swords is a pragmatic, critical individual who approaches everything with scrutiny. The Queen also happens to be ruled by Virgo, the sign the New Moon occurs in. However, the Moon immediately goes Void of Course until it enters Scorpio tomorrow. So don’t be surprise if you find your actions under the microscope. Moon square Pluto in the early morning hours will again bring up the question, “What do I want?” You may wake up feeling quite impulsive but be logical, like the Queen, and curb your impulses. The urge to be spointainious continues into the afternoon with Moon opposite Uranus. Again, it is not advisable to take any action because the Moon is void of Course and the aspects are rather volatile. You may feel on edge, but the feeling will only last for a couple of hours. By evening Moon conjunction Sun will bring the New Moon energy into focus and you’ll feel release through taking time to rest and recharge in order to prepare for the growth ahead. The number of the day is 3, assuring you that things are coming together, but you must be patient.
Mantra: A seed has been planted. I’m ready to watch it grow.
Tuesday 10/13/15 The Hierophant
Moon Enters Scorpio 2:38 PM PST
The Hierophant is a card of finding solace in traditional institutions whether it be a business related, academic or religious. This energy will make itself known when Mercury sextile Saturn occurs at 2:55 AM PST. The areas of your life that need stability will be illuminated and you will become aware of what corrections you need to make in order to bring your life into balance. If you feel confused, it’s best to seek advice from someone more experienced than you such as a professional advisor, therapist, teacher, religious leader or even a family member or good friend. And if the shoe is on the other foot, people who are confused may come to you seeking advice today. If this is the case, use your wisdom and follow your intuition to guide those who trust you. You may feel a little serious but lighten up because you’re on the right track. Ignore the temptation to isolate yourself because reaching out to someone for help is your best option to create forward movement. The number of the day is 4, the number of stability.
Mantra: Help is on the way!
Wednesday 10/14/15 10 of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course 5:58 PM PST
The 10 of Pentacles is a card of the optimal material achievement. It shows a grand mansion surrounded by gold coins. The aspects for the day are very favorable so all in all, it looks like a great day is ahead of us. Moon sextile Venus at 12:13 AM PST will bring feelings of happiness and harmony. If you’re awake in the wee hours of the morning, make sure to spend it doing something you love because it will bring much pleasure to you, especially in your home. Moon trine Neptune at 5:25 AM PST will leave you daydreaming into the workday. If you have any challenges to step up to, Moon sextile Mars will give you the confidence to dominate whatever stands in your way.

Mantra: My life is full of abudance.
Thursday 10/15/15 3 of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course
The Three of Pentacles traditionally features three men who are working on building a cathedral. It takes a lot of hard work to build something that massive, but with the right partnerships and right amount of dedication, you’ll find success. Moon is still void of course so it’s not wise to start anything new but it’s a good time to continue working on or finish projects you’ve already started. The only aspect for the day is Mars trine Neptune at 8:31 PM PST but this one is a doozy! You will be inspired to make plans that will reinvent your entire life. If you’ve been asking yourself, “What do I really want?” and “What do I need to do to achieve success?” the answers will be revealed to you. Let those answers come and don’t push them away, as radical as they may appear because Pluto is a planet that insights revolutions. If you feel in need of personal rebirth, this is the aspect that will show you the way. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory.
Mantra: What do we want? Change! When do we want it? Now!
Friday 10/16/15 Temperance
Moon Enters Sagittarius at 2:18 AM PST
Temperance is a card of patience and balance and patience. Traditionally, water and fire flow back and forth between the vessels in Archangel Michael’s hands, symbolizing how water and fire complement each other as opposites. There are several deceptive aspects today so by staying balanced, you’ll separate the truth from the lies. Moon conjunct Saturn at 7:06 AM PST may
bring painful feelings such as loneliness and guilt to the surface. You may be tempted to deny the true cause of those feelings but don’t give in to self-deception. Moon sextile Mercury at midday will bring you back into balance, however, and open up lines of communication. By late afternoon, Moon square Venus will bring love to the air but don’t smoother the people you care about. The illusions will creep in slowly after that thanks to Moon square Neptune and you could possibly be deceived by someone you care about deeply if you are not careful, alert and aware. This tendency only strengthens with Venus conjunct Neptune at 7:54 PM PST so if you’re out looking for love, it’s not a good time to bring anyone home unless you want a relationship that will be based in a not so pretty reality. The Moon is in energetic Sagittarius so you’ll have what it takes to get through the day. The number of the day is 7, a number that reminds you that you can’t always take what people tell you at face value.
Mantra: Don’t believe everything you hear.
Saturday 10/17/15 The Fool
Moon in Sagittarius
The Fool is a card that shows a man setting out on adventure. Traditionally, he looks like he’s about to leap off a cliff. He’s naive but eager to experience. He approaches everything with an open mind, as unwise as that may seem at times. The Moon is still Sagittarius, giving you the energy and gumption you need to jump right in and do whatever it is you need to do today, especially if it involves new beginnings. You may wake up feeling a little crabby because of Moon square Mars, but that will pass quickly thanks to the jolly energy of Moon square Jupiter. Moon trine Uranus in the early afternoon will leave you feeling ready for a weekend adventure. At 3:40 PM PST, Mars conjunct Jupiter will bring you the confidence you need to really go out there and take that chance. You may ask that person out on a date that you’ve been wanting to meet up with, go out to a social event and make new friends or do something athletic like go hiking. Whatever it is, luck will be smiling upon you. But this transit comes with a word of caution: risk taking is fine and good but be safe about what you do and remember, safety first. Gamboling and avoiding common sense safety practices is not advised. The number of the day is 8, reminding you that you will get out of the day what you put into it.
Mantra: Just do it.
