Good day, soul friends! I can't believe October is almost gone! I absolutely love Halloween and Autumn. I hope your week has been easy, that this weekend was full of rest, and that you are ready to get back out there.
Today's guidance comes from the Extra Ordinary Oracle by Amanda & Natty and the Halloween Oracle by Stacey DeMarco.

Focus on the image and chose which cards you feel drawn to before scrolling down.
Did you choose your card, yet?
If you chose the set of Cards 1: The Veil - The Future
The ancient Celts used to call the time of the longest night of the year, Samhain (pronounced sow-en). They believed that there was a misty veil that separated the world of the dad and the living, but on two nights of the year - Samhain and Beltaine (the shortest night) that the veil would thin.
The fineness of the veil meant the ancestors were closer than ever and even the gods would be close. This would mean that communications from the dead were more likely to occur and that divination (where the Divine speaks through something) would be more effective.
So while using this oracle, as the veil lifts, know that the other worlds are close. Listen in particular to what messages may come forth around your future. Look at what you want to happen - plan, set intentions, think big!
Your baggage, check it! Shed any unnecessary weight. Now is the time to set down that which is too heavy to continue carrying. Unintentionally expecting others to help others carry the load - so be mindful of those who you ask to bear your burden. It must be a labor of love, but you need to do your part.
If you selected the set of Cards 2:
Skull Of Stars - Infinite Possibilities
This skull brings us back to the fact that we are all made of the stuff of stars, yet many of us think so small! We are each born with a blank canvas to paint upon and we are indeed an open sky of possibilities.
It is easy to feel small in a world that is so busy, impersonal a seemingly self-absorbed. We can, at times, feel lost and unclear about our direction and lose sight of our place in the cosmos. The Skull Of Stars reminds us that we are only limited by our own imagination and boundaries. If we can dream it, it is possible.
This card indicates that you need to think bigger and more broadly about your future and what you would like to achieve. Perhaps there are false beliefs, often old, that no longer serve you as your grow and change. Sometimes these beliefs may not even be yours - they may have been imparted to you by your parents or the wider community, yet feel rather in-congruent to you. You need to endeavor, with all of your heart and soul, to live the life you want and honor your own wishes and truth.
Reflecting. What are you projecting? Be your own receiving end. What do you want to see? Take the time to consider what is you want, and what action will be required to get there. What will the ramifications be?
If you picked the set of Cards 3:
The Underworld - "Where all things pause and begin again."
The idea of an "underworld", a whole realm that we go to after we die, is a concept that crosses a huge variety of cultures and eras. What is different is how those cultures treat this concept - whether the underworld is seen as a place of rest and rejuvenation or horror and punishment.
You are being asked to consider exactly what you have to do to transform your life into something you find easier or more authentic to you. This may involve changing course. It involve trials and tests. Keep moving. While things fall away and your life may appear bare for a time, this is temporary. Space is being made into which you can create the new.
Something locked, and then gaining entrance. Through the threshold. Taking ownership. Going about things the way; boldly through the front door and not quietly through the back. Discovering and then controlling.
Thank you for participating in my card drawing for today. I hope that you enjoyed it! Did the card(s) you felt drawn to give you some guidance to think about?
