Just a quick hiya! to everyone out there. I have been so busy lately with my new job and adjusting to my longer commute and all that entails. However, I have a few posts patiently waiting in draft form, all for your reading pleasure.
In the meantime, a few thoughts: Did you know the Samhain, the cross-quarter holiday from which ( or witch) Halloween descended is meant to be celebrated at 15 degrees Scorpio? This means it really is the most liminal between November 6 – 7. Since my birthday is November 6, I find this somewhat ironic. This is because I am not really a fan of Halloween. As a kid, I enjoyed getting candy and going to Halloween parties, but trick or treating freaked me out a bit. I am not fond of masks and scary, bloody costumes or decorations. However, I recently visited a buddy of mine who creates an over-the-top Halloween display and it was incredible. Visiting with all of his cats was also a highlight. So you may ask yourself, what kind of Scorpio am I then? Well, that is a good question..
The suggestion that the veil is thinnest at mid-Scorpio makes perfect sense to me as the middle of a sign is where it is most powerful. I am fascinated with medium-ship and most occult practices, as many of you know, but not into blood, gore, spiders, bats, et al. I am writing about this now to let readers know there is still time to make connections with guides, loved ones, and any other spirits that dwell in other dimensions. We are still only a few degrees out of prime range, so if you want to do some inner journeying, go for it. I am not certain exactly why October 31st was chosen, but it may have to do with calendar system changes. I also read there could be a Pleiadian reference, which is very cool in my book. If you know the reason behind this date change, do tell!
It is winter here in Philadelphia, weatherwise, and I actually enjoyed putting on my winter jacket today for the first time this season. But then I thought about the gloves. I think I will seek out new gloves, or the very least, come to terms with the fact that I identified so strongly with an article of clothing that was not in my possession for very long. I am not certain at this point.
Before I go, allow me to give a shameless plug for my Sense-sational Challenge, which is in full swing. There still are slots available so if you are on the fence, please get off of it and sign up.
Plus, you get to display this groovy badge on your site. What more could you ask for?
Until the next time, go ahead and embrace the unseen and mysterious a bit longer before we move ahead to full tilt Turkeypolooza mode here in the States.
With Jupiter in Scorpio, we can go deeper into mystery and find more of what appears to be missing. It could be the resurfacing of joyful memories, a hidden talent, messages from the ethers, or a missing glove!
