Halloween Eve Scorpio New Moon!
“It is said that All Hallow’s Eve is when the veil between the worlds is thin. Whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright.” Erin Morgenstern
Sunday’s new moon falls the day before Halloween, in mysterious Scorpio--the sign representing death and rebirth--adding an otherworldly element, a woo-woo vibe. Scorpio is often associated with the Occult, perhaps conjuring images of witches, warlocks and dark magic…perfect for Halloweenie, but in truth, the word “Occult” is defined as “mystery” or “the unknown”.
Halloween is a time where the veil between worlds/dimensions is thin. To our Celtic ancestors, it was called Samhain, and considered the beginning of the Spiritual New Year. This Scorpio New Moon, combined with Halloween is an invitation to look within and journey into the mysterious and perhaps unknown parts of your being. Quiet and reflective activities are encouraged, and well as meditation and ritual. Taking time to commune, is in a sense, a celebration of the darkness--the mystery within.
Although Scorpio energy can be intense, this new moon aligns with some very harmonious planetary aspects, illuminating the more uplifting, transformative elements of the sign. New moons always represent a time of release, with the energies especially fruitful for letting go of the past, whether it's people, things or ways of being. Today and tomorrow's energies are powerfully transformative, so don't hesitate to work with them, and clear the away for the New Year!
