Gibbous Moon in Aries.
The Sun enters Scorpio.
The Sun leaves behind diplomatic and harmonious Libra to enter the deep, mystical and emotional waters of Scorpio where it will remain until November 22nd. When the Sun which represents our ego swims in the darkness of Scorpio, inner and outer transformation is now highlighted for us. Power, liberation and our need to create emotional and powerful connections with others is our motivation this month. We seek experiences that engage and strengthen our intimacy and seek hidden truths. Scorpio governs matters to do with life, death, transformation as Scorpio is associated with the rising phoenix, sexuality, intimacy, relationships, destruction, renewal and regeneration.
With the Sun now entering Scorpio our eyes are more open to realms of the mystic. The veil between the worlds is lifted only enough for us to encounter the spirit realm and all things ghostly. Halloween’s history originates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived over 2,000 years ago celebrated their new year on November 1. Its symbolic nature is one of marking the end of summer and the embarking of a cold, dark winter which mean,t unfortunately for a lot of people, it was a time of year that was often associated with death. The Celt tradition also talks about the last day of October, the night before their new year, in which the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred or as I mention the veil was lifted. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. Allowing us to see beyond the boundaries we generally assume are firmly in place. So keep your eyes open as you never know you may encounter small ghouls on our doorstep seeking treats to keep evil away!Happy Halloween!
