October 2018 Planning Spread

In this post, I’ll attempt to demystify October’s 3 card mini-spread from my Overview of 2018 spread. To recap, the three decks I used were The Enchanted Map, Triple Goddess Tarot, and Spirit Cats. I chose these 3 for their ability to give me concise info and for their ability to work together. The Enchanted Map card represents the theme of the month. The Triple Goddess card elaborates ways to achieve the theme. The Spirit Cats card gives me a guide card whose energy I can call upon when I need support.

Theme: #48 wishing well
How: wheel of fortune
Helper: mystery

Goals, and achieving them, are some of my favorite things to do. It’s one of my primary focuses around Inner Compass Tarot. October’s Wishing Well theme is all about understanding the fertile ground of goals and what ingredients it takes to achieve them. We can wish for whatever we want, but receiving those wishes takes a few ingredients. Some of it we put in and others come from fate, the universe, or whatever external forces you believe in. So, this month, while I’ll start planning for 2019, I’ll also let the Samhain energies to channel their ideas and thoughts into what my life should look like as well.

The Wheel of Fortune spins, spins, spins. So many lessons, so many ways life turns out. This card reminds me…  No matter how hard we push, things happen in their own time, in their own way. I see this card blending perfectly in with the Wishing Well theme. The universe is out there and I need to harness the energies it’s way, not force it into my own.

Esmerlda is this month’s spirit cat guide. She embodies mystery. If there’s something not known, she’ll run towards it. Mystery is never easy to guess. And I need to remember to enjoy those moments when they come. We’re only human, and there’s so much out there we do not know and maybe weren’t meant to know (waves at Cthulhu). So it’s time I make peace with this and allow the magic to spur new wishes in my life.
