Halloween at Midnight UT

astro_2gw_103_halloween.54100.51638

Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00 am on Halloween Night which is actually November 1st/ the Day of the Dead an ancient Festival in Mexico and for  witches, Wiccans, druids and neo-pagans it is the beginning of the spiritual New Year. It is the day when the veils between the living and the dead are thinnest and the best day to do divination work, to have seances to connect with the dead, to do scrying with a special bowl of water use crystals, runes, or tarot cards.

It is a celebration of the end of harvest and the beginning of the coldest half of the year. The name Samhain is pronounced saah-win or saa-wen. 

Astrologically 

the Moon enters Cancer early in the morning of the 31st. There is only one hard aspect  between the Moon and Saturn. A lovely trine from the Moon to Neptune means this Halloween will be excellent for visioning for oracles, divination, dreams connecting easily with the spiritual realms. Moon trines Sun in Scorpio in the early evening. 

If you are out late past midnight partying or scrying the Moon opposes PLUTO LORD OF THE DEAD at 1:53 am PDT/ 3:53 am EDT which is the absolute best time to connect with the other side. 

The secular Halloween in American is totally different than than the original pagan celebration. Although the use of imagery of cemeteries, ghosts and the popular icons of witches in pointed hats with their familiars black cats are used, secular Halloween is about dressing up in costumes, which has become a million dollar industry as adults have taken to celebrating this holiday more than children. Trick or Treating door to door and decorating houses with scary  stuff  and carving pumpkins, a symbol of a harvest fruit,  is also part of the celebration. 

Samhain is really a spiritual celebration of death as part of life. It is a day to honor your ancestors. In Mexico it is a happy celebration and everyone goes to the family cemetery to picnic beside ancestor’s graves to remember and honor them and keeping them in the family. Dinners always have empty place setting to honor the ancestors.  It is a great night to reflect. A bonfire is usually lit outdoors.

THE VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLDS IS THINNEST ON HALLOWEEN

Use Halloween as a time to invite and call upon the PSYCHOPOMPS, deities of the Underworld, of which Pluto reigns over.These deities also govern resurrection. Eating pomegranate the symbol of the dead is recommended. 

Call upon the CRONE GODDESS, Hekate, Kali,Persephone, 

Ereshkigal is the first lady of the underworld, one of the oldest myths that we know of connected to the descent of the of the Goddess Inanna. 

YAMA is the Hindu God of the dead.

Mictlantecuhtli and Mictecacihuatl are the chief God and Goddess of the Dead in Mexico. 

There are many Chinese Gods of the Dead and Ghost Kings. As well as Korean and Japanese.

Osiris in Ancient Egypt and Anubis are chief Gods of the Dead.

Odin, Hel and Freya are the Norse Gods and Goddesses.

Azreal is the Archangel of death in Islam. 

Also call upon the Horned God of Nature, Pan into your circle. This is a day to understand and honor the cycle of life, death and rebirth. If you have lost loved ones in the past year, seek comfort from speaking with them on this day. All of your ancestors who have passed on into the other worlds are more easily available and may come to you in your dreams as well. This is a sign that there is no death, only change of worlds.

Death and change, the only constants

My Mother in law, who is 88 years old is dying and I have been sending prayers constantly all day. Death always changes your consciousness about what you are doing with your life.I know she is ready to leave this planet and incarnation and to move on to a new dimension. As my husband left to travel to Ottawa where his mother is earlier today I said Don’t worry, she is fine. Your Dad, her sister brothers and parents are all waiting for her with open arms.  His sister called from Vancouver as she was also making preparations to fly to Ottawa to be at their mom’s side. She said I know my Mom is talking to me. She just told me that she is fine, that Daddy, her sister and brothers and mom and dad are all there waiting for her. I asked her when she received this telepathic message. She said around 10:15 am and I said that’s exactly when I told my husband the same words..

I’ll keep it very short. Scorpio Moon is the mood of death, rebirth, letting go, deep pain, grief, rebirth, transformation. We’ve been in Scorpio phase since Wed. Dec 17

Just before this month’s Scorpio dance through the depths of the underworld ends the Moon meets Saturn the Lord of Death and finality at 1:11 pm Dec 19 PST then the Moon goes void of course.

We are in the death throws of dealing with the constancy, the certainty of time and death that Saturn brings in Scorpio . These are the last days of that ornery critical 29th degree of Scorpio, the last of the last. Stephen Colbert has bid adieu to his character. Its been a hugely intense week. Yes it was only Monday that the 6th Uranus-Pluto square happened. Massacres, shootings, Sony hackings, Cuba renewed and more.

Remember this is a very HUGE transitional weekend and has been one of the most powerful weeks energetically all year.

Moon enters Sagittarius Friday at 1:55 pm PST and it is the perfect holiday moon with which to travel under.

There’s a VENUS PLUTO URANUS CARDINAL SQUARE WEEKEND on the 20th in the day

MARS also sextiles Uranus  to tickle your changeability fancy.

URANUS turns DIRECT Dec 21 on a New Moon and the Winter solstice December 21 aka YULE in pagan wiccan traditions. It is the day of the Longest night and the return of the Light. Stonehenge and other sacred sites are visited by thousands to mark this great turning point in the year.

We are scant days away from Saturn moving on from the 29th critical degree. It will feel very heavy and intense until December 23 @ 8:34 am PST/11:34 am EST when Saturn totally shifts our reality and moves into the honest optimistic humorous sign of SAGITTARIUS. 

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

sacred india Tarot Tara Greene

JUSTICE #8

Sacred India TAROT- Varuna 

Varuna is the Hindu God of the Law, keeper of order, oaths,and seasons. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

The Rigveda shows Varuna as  omniscient, catching liars in his snares. The stars are his thousand-eyed spies, watching every movement that humans make. He is the god of oceans and Guardian of the Directions.

MEDITATIONS

Find peace and harmony, justice and balance these days as the holiday season begins

Do not be judgemental, maintain a balanced outlook, everything in moderation.

Wishing you and yours a Joyous healthy Holiday.

Turn Turn Turn The Byrds 1965  

Saturnalia, Winter Solstice HOT SPOTS from Tara Greene

WINTER SOLSTICE is the shortest day of the year, the longest night. Called YULE in the Pagan circle of the year.

It’s CAPRICORN time. Ruled by Saturn, the planet/God of Time, testing, maturity, old age. The ancient Romans celebrated this tradition as the Saturnalia. A time of revelry, when slaves were free and became the  masters, everyone was celebrating the Return of the  Light, the King, in infant form. The Christians overlaid the story of Jesus onto the ancient worship. Everything we associate with Christmas are ancient pagan symbols -the holly, the mistletoe, the Yule loge, the tree. Paganism is the fastest growing “religion” in the U.K. and the U.S. Actually it is not an organized religion at all per se, it is a practice of spiritual immanence with Nature, the Goddess and the God, with All That Is. Paganism is  more of a group spirituality which can be practiced alone. It has nothing to do with devil worship. The popularity of Harry Potter has also certainly brought back its popularity. Pagans worship nature, Druids worshipped trees.

So it’s Capricorn time. The sun is on the Tropic of Capricorn 23.26 degrees South of the Equator.  The Tropic Of Capricorn has many countries world-wide which it runs through. Five in Africa, North of Alice Springs, Queensland, Australia,and four countries in Brasil.

All Capricorn’s, especially those Old Gruff Goats and Goatees born December 31st to January 5th this is a huge  year for you. Or anyone with Capricorn planets at 9-14 degrees. You know PLUTO is forcing the old you to die and be reborn, unless you are truly following your soul’s path. Then Pluto can bring power, rewards, riches. An entirely new you is being forged deep in the bowels of the earth. And if that’s not enough to change your soul totally. Then Uranus Mars and Jupiter get in on the act to revolutionize, ignite and expand your horizons respectively.

Where the PLanetary Lines fall on the Winter Solstice chart map in Astro Cartography is where the greatest tension will be for the next 3 months to a year. Especially where  Mars Uranus Jupiter and Pluto lines fall are the areas to watch.

Winter solstice world map Tara Greene

PLUTO runs right through Maputo South Africa,North through Zambia, Zaire,Chad, Western Libya,France,South West England, Ireland. PLUTO MARS and URANUS CONJUNCT exactly in the middle of CHAD AFRICA. TRIPLE HOT SPOT with Jupiter crossing north of the others in LIBYA.

Pluto conjuncts the Moon over ICELAND, right over the Northern most part of   Canada, including that north Pole passage and down through, North West Alberta and bisects British Columbia and goes out to the middle of the Pacific Ocean and South of New Zealand.

PLUTO is on the Mid Heaven and runs through Argentina, BOLIVIA, Venezuela, Western Puerto Rico, North to Boston and into Quebec and Labrador.

PLUTO conjuncts URANUS right on Tiera Del Fuego Argentina and again in Northern Russian down through Ulan Bator MONGOLIA.. Those are HOT SPOTS.

On the other side of the World Pluto is on the I.C. of Indonesia,BEIJING , into Mongolia and Russia.  If you are a Capricorn and living on these lines you will be transformed even more. Or got to these places if you are seeking Plutonic transformation.

URANUS and MARs actually cross paths directly over New York, near Washington , through the Caribbean, right over HAITI, Venezuela and Columbia. Also through Western Alaska, near Hawaii. They cross Pluto right at the Society Islands. On the Western side, Uranus and Mars cross paths  right through Stockholm, Sweden,Warsaw, Poland, Budapest Hungary, down through Belgrade Yugoslavia, South through Libya, Chad, directly South through Botswana, Africa. Mars and Uranus Ascend through JAVA and Indonesia. Uranus and Pluto cross over each other in Mongolia.

JUPITER is on the Mid Heaven through TAIWAN, MANILLA Philipines, Indonesia and Western Australia. Jupiter on the I.C. through Nova Scotia, South through Guyana, Paraguay, Argentina and the FALKLAND ISLANDS.

JUPITER ASCENDS through TASMANIA, SUDAN, crosses MARS & URANUS in LIBYA!!!!! VERY HOTTTT,

Jupiter Ascends through France, Britain, Ireland, Jupiter Descends through NOrthern CANADA, NOrth of HUDSON”S BAY,Northern Saskatchewan, right through the ALBERTA TAR SANDS, right through Mt. ST. HELEN’s And WASHINGTON STATE and Descends through the Pacific near the Society Islands and South of New Zealand.

The Winter Solstice is a very GALACTIC SOLSTICE or SOULSTITCH
