This month’s augury is coming into play a bit later than expected, as I’ve found myself with lots on my plate. So here, 11 days into October, is the omen.
Tangled hearts in riddled messages of crossed desires stay the course. October is an interesting month for matters near and dear. We find ourselves still persisting in untangling the depths of what we want, and where we want to apply our selves. (Isn’t this always the case?). This insistent doggedness in our attempts might prove quite the cross to bear, as some enigmas and depths are better left to their rhythms. In time perhaps what was undisclosed will be revealed. On the other hand, some aspects of these deep dives might prove fortuitous as we persist in our delving. The key here is to discern how to apply our efforts, to what degree and strength, and for how long, lest we get lost along the way bearing a heavier cross than intended. This month is shaping out to be one for orientating the self in relation to exertion and flow. What we need to let rest and what we need to inquire further into, this is especially the case with matters close to us, of the home and of the heart. Moreover, it is not just about letting rest or exerting over certain areas in our lives, but about situating ourselves vis à vis what we want to attend to, re-orienting our focus as well.
I would like to add that I have an unexpected trip coming up which will keep me away from home and busier than anticipated. Because of this, October might be quiet around here. I am moving the next installment of my Animating the Tarot Pips series for November. I also have a couple reviews in the works which will hopefully be shared toward the end of October beginning November. Lastly, I realize I’ve been doing my auguries for some time now, and for those of you that follow them, or those that are new in following, you might be wondering what I mean with them and who my intended audience is (the querent, in others words), perhaps even what are the dynamics in play when I’m slinging the cards for these auguries. As this is a question that was recently posed to me, I want to share my thoughts around this, and by extension divination. Why I do what I do, and where I’m coming from. This will be the topic of my next post.
Wishing everyone a sonorous October.
