Erica's Star Scopes of 2020

Welcome to Erica’s OCTOBER STAR SCOPES.  My StarScopes are an alchemy of astrological signs, tarot insight, and angelic guidance.  This month to honour the connection to nature and the changing of the seasons, I have used my animal tarot with extra guidance from my mermaid, unicorn,  fairy and dragon oracle decks.  The whole reading is over-lit by Archangel Raphael.

 I know opinions on this differ, but I always associate Raphael with the East and the winds and air.  Therefore, he is the perfect Archangel to guide Libra.  I have also called on the divine feminine powers of the goddess Lakshmi who connects us with our powers of prosperity and abundance.


October is ruled over by the angel Barbiel.  Barbiel reminds us of the generosity of nature and Divine magic.  As you sow, so shall you reap. As you reap, so shall you sow.  Live in harmony with the earth cycles.  Some fruits of our labours we enjoy immediately, others arrive at the optimum time.  This is also the month when we celebrate Samhain or All Hallow’s E’en. A night in the Celtic calendar when the harvest was finally gathered in and all else must be left in the fields for nature and foraging. Great communal fires were lit, there was feasting, and the bones thrown into the flames (hence the term bonfire). A flame from the fire was taken into each dwelling and lit to keep the fires burning through the winter months, honouring the Roman goddess Vesta and her Greek personification Hestia, the goddesses of hearth and home. Samhain marks the end of the Celtic Year. It is the night when the veil between the worlds thins so that departed loved ones can draw near. Candles are lit to guide them home. Jack ‘o lanterns are lit to divert spirits who are not invited into the home.  It is a night to reflect, to commune with the living and the departed and be grateful for all that was, is and will be.

CAPRICORN 22nd December-20th January

Earthy Capricorn, the fairies have sprung forth to celebrate with you. You can be the most serious of signs, so they want to you to bring some levity into your life.  Is there a reason to celebrate?  A birthday; an arrival; a success; the joy of being alive?  Whatever it is, however large or small, find a way to make the occasion and really put your heart and soul into it. They say you have a tendency to project worry into the future. Having concern for life is fine, they say, just don’t catastrophize. Hold the balance between enjoying life whenever and wherever you can, and sensible precautions. Of course, life has its downs, but you don’t have to stay down. If you keep looking down into the pit you’ll never look up to see the stars.


AQUARIUS 21st January-19th Feb

Aquarius, the water carrier, guess who you have attracted to this Starscope?  Yes, the merfolk.  You have the mermaid of hope with you. She is sitting, semi submerged looking rather melancholy. Neither in the water, nor out of it, she is feeling lost and perhaps thinking that life has lost its shine. If only she looked round she’d see the rainbow and the sun bursting in a fanfare of light through those dark clouds. Her message is to know that even when life is a challenge, nothing is constant but change, and things will change, and can change for the better if you can only hold onto hope and look around and change the perspective. Take charge of your thoughts and guide them to a happier point of view. Even a little tweak will start your journey into better times, and each time something good happens you’ll know you are heading in the right direction.


PISCES 20th February-20th March

Pisces, a water sign and deeply intuitive, you have the fairies with you for a play date. They want you to connect to your inner child and have some fun.  Be silly, dance in the street, kick up some leaves, whatever makes your smile, or better still, giggle. This has been a challenging year with so many shoulds, and shouldn’ts and ought tos and obligations. Responsibility is fine, just don’t lose the joy of life.Perhaps, one way of achieving this is to loosen your grip. Don’t try to control so hard, be more spontaneous. Being over cautious just in case something may happen is a state of mind that is likely to dampen any fun you may be having in the present. Let go and life a little more.


ARIES 21st March-20th April

The time is now, Aries, first sign of the zodiac, wayshower, head-butter of obstacles, you have a fifth dimensional golden Atlantean dragon at your side.  These dragons hold the memories and the keys and codes of the great Atlantean civilisation 1500 years ago.  When this dragon appears, it is your call to reclaim your mastery. This dragon will breath golden fire into your third eye if you ask for this clearance to happen. The time for procrastination is over. Prepare to stand in your power with the wisdom of the Atlantean masters. This wisdom may come to you as a knowing, or you may need to engage in study. Grasp every opportunity which comes your way to evolve even higher than you already are. Reach higher and higher and fall in love with the magnificence of spiritual and earthly life.

TAURUS 21st April-21st May

The unicorns have touched down in your earthly sign to show you that it is possible to have love and understanding, even with those who might seem like enemies or in direction opposition to you or your beliefs. Unicorns bring the energy and vibration of pure ninth dimensional love which can lift us up from earthly fear based conflict by taking us to a soul perspective where we are all trying to live as best we can according to where we are. If you can see someone and their opinions as just that, someone with opinions that they strongly believe, just as you hold onto yours this perspective can take you one step away from conflict. Put love at the heart of everything. It is the only eternal reality. The best way to deal with others’ opinions is to listen to them closely, rather than to criticise.  What exactly are they saying? How did they get to that conclusion? You may still not agree with them, but you will have learned something through your evaluations of their thought process.





GEMINI 22nd May-21st June

Gemini, this month you are away with the fairies. Quite literally, perhaps.  They invite you to go fairy spotting. Can you see them?  Well the phrase: “seeing is believing” is being turned on its head by them.  They say: “believing is seeing”.  Do you believe in fairies?  Say: I do, I do, I do and be prepared to see sparkles or flashes of light. That is their calling card.  As we approach the celebration of Samhain, the night when the veil thins, leave them a gift of chocolate or cake and make a wish. They also show the gift of a spider’s web.  Magical weaving.  Invite them kindly into parts of your home to shelter from the winter. Ask them to weave you a story of new beginnings, abundance and the gift of inspiration.  Working with the moon will be particularly powerful and useful for you this month. There is a super new moon in Libra on 16th and an auspicious full moon in Taurus on the night of Samhain.



CANCER 22nd June-23rd July

No surprise the mermaids have dropped in to talk to you. And their message is loud and clear, you need to concentrate on communication this month.  Don’t hold back from phoning someone, especially if you get an intuitive feeling or find yourself thinking about them.  If you have a difficult conversation ahead and are holding back, maybe it could be better communicated by writing, texting or emailing. That way you can think about what you want to say, choose your words carefully, kindly and firmly.  Say what you mean, and mean what you say. It is also a time to consider your finances. Things may have been tough, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Carefully examine your relationship with money.  How do you feel about it?  Do you resent its control over you? Or, could you become best friends?


LEO 24th July-23rd August

You have a dragon with you this month.  Surprise, surprise as you are a fire sign!  However, this is not a fire dragon.  This is a sensitive fifth dimensional dragon bathed in sunshine light who would like to guide your attention to mother earth and all her creatures.  If humans are having a hard time of it at the moment, then the animal kingdom is even more under stress. Fires, floods, factory farming, loss of habitat.  They need our help and Leos are great showmen and orators.  This dragon calls on you to use your voice and also your spending powers to buy with compassion and awareness. It is also a time to carefully evaluation relationships.  Be honest.  How do you feel when you are around some people? This is not about how they “make” you feel.  That is giving your power away.  Own it.  How do you feel? If you need to do something about how you relate to them, do it.



VIRGO 24th August-23rd September

Virgo, you are an earth sign with a touch of Mercury’s communication.  This combination has called the fairy of inspiration to you. As we approach Samhain the tinge of winter, use this time to go within. At dawn or dusk or in your dreams, the fairy of inspiration will drop seeds of ideas into your mind.  Store them well ready to germinate next Spring. Don’t be afraid to dream big. What would you wish for if the fairy of manifestation stood before you with her wand raised?  You may need to co-operate with others to make your dream a reality, and some research into facts and figures wouldn’t go amiss either. But you know that already, don’t you?  You of all signs like to have things organised.


LIBRA 24th September-23rd October

You have attracted the attention of the merfolk.  A beautiful mermaid rests on a stone out of the water, at peace with the world. A light house shines to illuminate her blessings. This birthday month is a time of repose, to reflect on all the blessings in life and the bridge serves as a place to look out into the oceanic world and consider what direction to take next.  Contentment is her watch word.  She knows that she will have to dive back into the ocean currents, but for now she is savouring every moment of her calm and contentment with no guilty feelings whatsoever. Reward yourself for being you.  You deserve contentment and know that you can balance life’s obligations and still take time for yourself to consider your next steps. Towards the end of the month as Samhain approaches make the effort to get together with friends to celebrate good company and the riches of friendships. Use the super new moon in your sign on 16th to good advantage.







SCORPIO 24th October-22nd November

The unicorns have stepped forward to greet you with their message for October. A sacred stone circle lies behind in the hills with a fire burning in the centre. In the dusky light a rainbow arcs.  Listen to the whispering of your dreams. In the power of Samhain the veil between the worlds thins. As the light fades, we take that light within us. Make plans for the future. You don’t have to take action, just little steps. Don’t allow the prospect of a distant horizon deter you or throw you into a state of procrastination. You know if you break this down into manageable stages that you can do this. Use the cloistering of the winter months to study, learn and prepare. Knowing you have done this work will give you the confidence to step out.






SAGITTARIUS 23rd November-21st December

As a fire sign, you have attracted a dragon to your side. And this dragon is the extremely high vibrational Source dragon. This dragon from the ninth dimension brings down the energy and vibration of the ultimate creator’s source at the twelfth dimension. Your dragon connects to you the ultimate still point of creation and the creator’s sound:  OM.  Find time this month to be still and open your heart to allow this dragon to instil in you the magic of the divine.  In these moments all will become clear and you will understand your place in life.  It is a time of truth and transformation. Do not be afraid to transform? Think of the butterfly.  Would you rather remain a caterpillar? Go within, grow your wings and prepare to inspire and uplift, just as a butterfly does.  Not everyone may understand your journey, but that is their problem, not yours.
