Remember the Burning Times. Samhain isThe Witches New Year

These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lid opening soundtracks, the Monster Mash, etc etc. another commercial holiday. Children dressed in costumes go door to door with their pillowcases {environmentally friendly} asking Trick or Treat! The kiddies are given way too much sugar, and carefully pre-packaged non interfered with goods. Adults these days get into the Halloween theme by dressing up- straight guys love to be able to go out in drag on Halloween and generally party, funkily “spook-up” their environments and drink a lot. Lots of scary movies get shown.

But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallowed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year during the month when the Sun is in Scorpio, sign of Birth Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth. Wiccans honour this eve as the night when the veil between the two worlds is thinnest and much scrying, gazing into crystal balls and connecting with the spirits of the dead goes on as this night offers the easiest access.

The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared Night.

Read about the history of Samhain https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/samhain

I wish in the midst of your pumpkin carving and revelry that you take time out to honour this day as it was originally intended. Remember in the midst of all the superficial trappings of Halloween, the hundreds of thousands, some say up to 9,000,000 mainly women, children and men who were accused of being witches by the Catholic Church who were tortured and burned at the stake. Old women, crones, medicine women, herbalists, midwives, pagans,their families, the poor, all innocent people who lived in harmony with Nature, who Loved their Mother the Earth, who knew the Wise Women’s Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick, the dying, the mothers giving birth. It was a misogynist Nazi Christian tyranny that went on for over 300 years in Europe and to the New World where the last woman was burned at the stake at Salem. Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You didn’t have to be Jewish or Muslim you mainly just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church.

Witch Burning

I remember my own burning, the Inquisitors {one of whom turned out to be in this present life, my first husband, and a couple of Real Estate Agents, one Jewish, one Black} I relived this memory of my past life during a Holotropic Breathwork session. Many other women also relived the same experiences. It was horrible, my own two children were forced to stand and watch as their mother was tied to the stake and the fire lit. Of course I wasn’t meek or mild, I screamed and cursed them all for their inhumanity and ignorance, for their sadism and cruelty.

Those 100,000-200,000 to 9 million innocent souls who were terribly tortured and burned are back now on this earth.

Deep in the cells of your being in your cellular consciousness be you male or female at this time, you remember the Burning Times when you lived in total fear, when you hid you pagan religion, your ability to help, to heal, when tyranny was all around and anyone could accuse you of being a witch thereby ensuring your almost certain death. Watch The Burning Times a Canada Film Board movie which chronicles in detail this stain upon humanity.

Light a candle for those hundreds of thousands of souls who were innocent and remember what it was like. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your children or your dog or cat, a friend or even your landlord was surely enough one of those people.

It’s time to acknowledge the deep pain in the shadows of our unconscious. The only way to heal it is to acknowledge that shadow, let the tears flow, the grief, the agony. This brings it out of unconsciousness otherwise shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and ourselves, believing that we are not worthy, not lovable, deceitful, sinners, powerless. There is a collective shadow of women being afraid to hold their power and beauty.

As this is a New Year in the Ancient Count of Days Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love and Forgiveness. For the only way out is to forgive the accusers for their ignorance. This takes great strength and courage, for as you Forgive them you also forgive yourself and allow yourself to be free of the past.

They will have gotten their karmic comeuppance.

HALLOWEEN is SAMHAIN is the Pagan New year!

We are totally out of synch with solar/lunar natural cycle Westerners who denigrate the earth, the Feminine, the Goddess, and ourselves celebrate New Year’s on a totally artificial Gregorian calendar date 2 months later.  Why not get in synch now?

 The commercialized version of Halloween which has been handed down to us, does partake of some of the original mystery of this night filled with ghosts and spirits walking amongst the living.

October 31 is the night when the veil which divides the worlds of the living and the dead is the thinnest. Covens of pagans, who are ancient nature worshippers, labelled witches and persecuted by the Catholic Church for centuries, would gather to celebrate this sacred Night, the direction of the North West on the great round of the wheel of Life.

Plates of cakes and wine with candles lit are offered to your beloved ancestors, without whom your consciousness and body would not be here. Recalling your departed relatives with reverence is part of the sacredness of this day.

An altar is decorated with autumn leaves, the oranges and golds, the pumpkin, a fall vegetable, one of the last of the season, symbolizes the full round, ripe with abundant seeds of Life.  The harvest has been gathered, the fields are fallow. The King of the Waning Year has sailed over the sunless sea of the womb of the Mother, and alights on the Shining Isle, the luminous wolrd egg, becoming the seed of his own rebirth. The gates of life and death are opened! the new Sun child is conceived, the dead arise and walk, and to the living is revealed the Mystery, that there is no death, that life is everlasting, all endings are but new beginnings. We meet in time out of time, everywhere and nowhere, here and there, at once, to greet the Lord of Death, who is Lord of Life and the Triple Goddess who is the circle of Rebirth. – referenced to Starhawk.

It is the best night to scry gazing into crystals or water.

The popular children’s Halloween game of bobbing for apples comes down to us from the original ancient ceremonial use of the apple at the Halloween Sabbat ceremony. An apple is Goddesse’s sacred fruit of Life- remember the Garden of Eden? It is cut by a ritual sword or athame splitting it open to reveal it as the fruit of death as well. The 2 in One.  All apples are Goddess symbols, the shape of the fruits’ seeds is the 5 sided pentagram , the five fold star of rebirth, as Venus actually cycles in the pentagram shape over time. Upright pentagrams are symbols of Venus herself. The downturned ones are inverted used for black magic and negative.

Apples and eaten wine is drunk. Celebrations of rebirth, renewal, everlasting life is what Halloween is all about. At Midnight Nov 1st becomes the day of the Dead celebrated throughout Mexico, it is coincidentally also part of that ancient Halloween celebration. The spirits of the dead are able to intermingle with the living. Meals are shared with the departed ancestors and friends. In Mexico great family picnics occur in cemeteries. The dead are considered to be helpers and protectors of the living from the beyond always with us but closer this night.

Happy Samhain

remember this is the best night for scrying and psychic work and contacting spirits. Time to go within in the Northern Hemisphere.

September 29 VENUS IS IN SEXY OBSESSIVE SCORPIO at 21’22’ at 9:13 am PDT/ 12:13 pm EDT/ 4:13 pm GMT

Venus is human love. Neptune is a “higher octave” of love. Spiritual ephemeral timeless, karmic, imaginary, creative. Bring me your higher love like Stevie Winwood sings.

Venus in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces September 29 is a beautiful spiritual magical magic carpet ride. It can be deeply sexual or you can be flying around the universe. Your imagination power psychic energy and insights are off the charts today.

Beware of levitating and feeling ungrounded and emotionally overwhelmed. This aspect can also bring up deep shadow material you jay have been denying sexual or emotional abuse issues. Don’t numb the pain with drugs alcohol or denial. Venus in Scorpio gives you the strength to face the shadows and the torture and the pain and know you will rise resilient. That is true magic.

This is the 2nd Venus Neptune trine since June 21, 2021 when Venus was in the birth giving nurturing mother sign of Cancer. This trine has A very different flavour, it’s about cutting things off, death, letting go, letting what no longer serves your total spiritual health and welfare go. In the northern hemisphere I’m seeing my beautiful garden die off and I must let go. Venus in Scorpio is Persephone, Inanna, Queen of the shades, the shadows, the unconscious. Listen to Her experience and wisdom.

A great day to meditate be creative, visualize, speak to your departed loved ones, engage in tantric sexuality with someone you are committed to.

It’s a day to be with your emotions and water. Bathe or shower if you can’t get to a body of water. Remember being in the womb. Going into a flotation tank would be ideal. Send water blessings to the oceans rivers and all the whales dolphins and sea creatures.

Ask to unite with your soul mate if you are single. A good day to see yourself in a sacred marriage within so that it can manifest to you from without.

Practice automatic writing, get in touch with your spirit guides and ancestors.

Do something charitable, give to a food bank or send money to a child charity. Feel divine love in your heart and through your body.

Duchess Meghan, 40th Birthday, her year ahead

Meghan’s birthday is today August 4 as she hits the Big 40. you know what they say, life begins at 40. She has accomplished a lot already, especially in the past only 3 years and a bit since she married her Prince, Harry in front of billions of people. We all know her story. Let’s look at what her 40th year looks like in the stars.

Meghan Markle birth chart and 40th birthday astrology predictions

Her solar return the actual birthdate when the sun returns to your actual birth moment by decree was August 3rd.

Her Moon, representing her emotional security, her home, family, children, her mother, is at 21 ° Gemini in her 11th house opposite her natal Neptune in Sagittarius the sign of the teacher, communicating, inspiring, spiritual, imaginative, charitable, Neptune rules film and photography, in her 5th House of creativity, self-expression, fertility, will power, leadership. Meghan will definitely have a big creative year ahead. Non-profits, creative film projects spiritual work, and teaching is all part of this.

Mercury, planet of Comminications is also conjunct her Proud Leo sun. Further underscoring a big hearted, dramatic as always, generous, child centered, joyful year ahead

Venus conjunct her natal Venus in Virgo is also very positive. In her zone of perfectionism, hard work, hands on details and health oriented in her 3rd House of communications, siblings, short journeys, writing, and generating ideas she loves and with those she loves.

Mars is her inner and outer Masculine energy in Virgo at 3 Degrees Conjuncts Ceres the Great Mother in her 2 House of resources, values, assets. This can indicate a passion for motherhood, Firey perfection in mothering, also Prince Harry being a very hands on dad, especially with Archie, now a big brother and going through the Terrible Two’s. He may be angry about being overlooked for a younger baby. This can also be a strong bond with her mother Doria who is helping out more than is known in public. Meghan is a workaholic and she will try to do it all. this symbolizes getting pregnant very easily and my intuition feels that she and Harry will have a third child, She will also want to work on projects for mothers and children.

Jupiter, planet of truth, Justice, expansion, travel, higher learning, freedom, philosophy, humour, fertility, faith and luck is at the last degree of Aquarius In her 8th house of Inheritance, transformation, and death, Retrograde square her Uranus and Lilith in Scorpio and Chiron the Wounded Healer in late Taurus. This can indicate sudden chaotic turns of events in her life. She will still be reviled as a demoness by many. She is vulnerable to this hatred. She may act like it doesn’t bother her but it does. Shocking revelations may come out.

Saturn, planet of karma limitations, obstacles, testing, maturity and her father is at 10 degrees Aquarius in her 7th house of marriage and all others, opposite to her Sun with transiting Mercury there too. She will have a painfully face off with her dad. She may have to force him to stop commenting on the news. This also indicates her father could die. The high side of this could also be a karmic turning point and under unusual maybe outer pressure she will open up communications with her estranged father. This can be pressure in her marriage with Harry too. Restrictions from the outside world.

Uranus at 14 Taurus in her 10 H of worldly fame is square her Leo Sun and square to transiting Saturn. There will be chaos, unexpected drama and restriction. Powerful Leo royals will try to limit her power in the world in some way.

Neptune square Neptune is often a feeling lost year. But also A year Of projecting, creativity, dreamy, spirituality.

Pluto in Capricorn ♑️ is sitting right on her DC. In her 7th house opposite her AC. And square her natal Juno, Goddess of marriage and feminine genius in Libra ♎️ in her 4th House of home, roots, family. Motherhood. Meghan is seen as being a very powerful woman, mother, an 8 armed goddess.

Pluto can really bring immense soul wealth if she doesn’t buy into the corporate powers structure and get seduced by power,and it’s abuses, wealth and the material plane. Pluto usually brings destruction, demotion, and strips away anything that is not on your Soul’s path.

Chiron in Aries is exactly on her MC her point of world fame and recognition exactly square her natal Mars in Cancer in her 12H . This aspect can indicate vulnerability, depression, post-partum issues, and unresolved anger. Meghan can also use this aspect to help mothers, with depression, or those in a passive aggressive position to get help .

The North Node at 5 Gemini will contact Meghan’s natal part of Fortune at 1° Gemini in her 2st house of self identity before the end of the year. It shows great fortune with communications and partnerships.. And working in partnerships. We know Meghan is already working with David Furnish, Elton John’s husband to bring out an animated series empowering women.

Meghans year ahead Looks very powerful and positive but with some key once in a lifetime challenging transits.

Mars Retrograde conjunct Eris. Slow-release triggers

Golden_Apple_of_Discord_by_Jacob_Jordaens Public domain

Golden_Apple_of_Discord_by_Jacob_Jordaens/ Public domain 

Mars Retrograde conjuncts his mythological sister Eris, the Goddess of revenge, strife and disturbances October 3 at 10:51 pm PDT/ October 4th at 1:51 am EDT/ 5:51 am GMT. 

Mars the red warrior planet rules guns, the military, anger, competition defences, and masculine energy. Eris conjunct Mars is a slow-release anger trigger. 

“Happiness Is A Warm Gun” by The Beatles or The Across the Universe version is good too as exactly the theme song.

Eris is an awakener. She is an Amazon warrioress instigating disturbances, riots, protests for righteous injustice. We can see Eris at work in Black Lives Matter protests, and like the Yellow Jackets in France and the Hong Kong protests. Eris moves very, very slowly. It takes Eris 558 years to complete one orbit around the Sun. 

The dwarf planet has been in late degrees of Aries for years now and all the Cardinal Capricorn planets Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter have been in hard squares to her.

In myth, she was the uninvited guest to a  big wedding. She famously threw a golden apple inscribed “To the most beautiful of them all” at three Goddesses which eventually resulted in the Trojan War. In modern times Eris myth was incorporated into the Sleeping Beauty story. She became the uninvited fairy, who cursed Princess Aurora to sleep for 100 years until the prince came and woke her with a kiss.

All planets moving Retrograde are considered to be karmic In nature. Do be careful of being triggered with old jealousy, possessive and revenge issues all Scorpio signature dark unconscious energies. This can be coming at you from others as well as backlash from the collective unconscious too.

NOTE that PLUTO the planet which also governs SCORPIO in modern mythology turns DIRECT at 22 degrees CAPRICORN on the 4th at 6:32 am PDT/ 9:32 am EDT/ 1:32 am GMT. Planets are at their most powerful as they pivot changing direction from retrograde to Direct and vice-versa.

Look at where 24+ degrees ARIES is in your astrology chart to see how this double trouble disturbing energy will be affecting you personally. Also, look at 24+ CAPRICORN where Saturn Pluto and Jupiter are imposing reality on this anger. 24+ degrees LIBRA and CANCER are also being directly affected. 19-29 degrees of these Cardinal Signs are also included giving a wider scope. 

Use this energy signature and time to release old grudges, repressed anger and revenge emotional energies which are keeping you stuck and are holding you back from moving forwards freely.

Pussy powered Sextile magic

On the hi or low heeled day after the Women’s Marches world wide the skies deliver a-resounding cosmic Yes! 

The feminine compassionate spiritual cosmic womb/oceanic bliss source energy of PISCES is the temporary abode of the Moon.

A beautiful sextile and trine energy from the PISCES MOON  makes this a dreamy creative meditative energizing romantic idealistic day. Yoga will flow poetry will flow artists will be inspired. Its a good day for laying back and opening to the Bliss of the Universe.

Jupiter the Grand Master flash planet and Pluto Lord of the soul riches are in cahoots in a sweetly supportive sextile to each other with both at 19+ degrees of SCORPIO and CAPRICORN respectively. Both planets are in feminine signs of water and earth.

Check out if you have planets at 18-21 degrees of WATER- CANCER or EARTH- TAURUS or VIRGO to create a GRAND SEXTILE.

The moon creates a Sextile  with PLUTO and trines planets- Jupiter and  MARS in SCORPIO too for added oomph. 

Pisces Moon joins with Chiron before the trine to MARS indicating the wounds of the masculine and the compassion needed to truly heal this split between the masculine and the feminine in the outer world and within ourselves.

This is a beautiful beautiful sign of “as above so below.”

After 6000 years of indoctrination and brainwashing by the hierarchical patriarchy away from nature from the core of our experience of the Divine feminine, from trusting our instincts and the earth we need to heal that and adjust and reform every aspect of our broken imbalances culture, we need to reform or destroy all patriarchal religions, we need to radically change the way we value everything, the political system the banking and corporate systems, our work our broken families, our lives, our homes our communities our health system, education, child rearing, birthing practices, the way we eat, slept, share our nightly dreams. Live by the moon, make rituals, Dance, make love, and die.

We are in a reactionary time and the imbalances are just starting to be addressed. We must be careful how the foundation is built.

The PISCES MOON has me in its visionary magic as I envisioned this planetary combination creating a complete Grand Sextiles MERKABA then realized that the missing Earth and WATER elements weren’t really there. The Star of David originates in India. The Jews appropriated it as their own magical sigil. It’s a Merkaba is an interdimensional vehicle which really symbolizes sexual intercourse and the balance of male-female Power equally. It’s up to you to pull down the earthy TAURUS and VIRGO energies to create the truly Magic 6 pointed STAR.

We can create balance within ourselves and find the limitless joy of unconditional love in the union of the divine opposites which are in truth only One Love.
