Witches New Year, Halloween Blue Moon, Lilith and Circe

Full Blue Halloween Moon astrology by Tara Greene
Full Blue Halloween Moon astrology

I have always identified with being a witch, very much so. I was teased and called a witch since I was a kid because of my unruly coarse black hair and intense energy. Numerologically I am a number 11/2. A High Priestess and remember past lives serving in Ancient Temples. I felt connected to Circe the Sorceress since I was a teenager. Going to Stonehenge, Greece and Ephesus, Turkey when I was 17 brought many past life memories back into my consciousness as a High Priestess. I remember being burned at the stake in a past life through intuition and past life regressions. I used to work with a small coven of women in the 1980s but have been a solitary coven of and I also do ceremonies with my husband. I was initiated as a Green Witch by Susun Weed at her Wise Woman Center in Woodstock in 1987. I have always known that women have magical power because they can give birth and bleed and are tuned into the cosmos, and are always straddling the worlds. I’ve always felt connected to the cosmos and Nature and participating in the ancient turning of the circle of the years. I feel connected to the Darkness, and Scorpio death-rebirth and transformation.

Halloween is Pagans/Witches New Year called SAMHAIN     October 31st is when the Veil between the worlds is the thinnest it’s the best night in the year to scry, gaze into your crystal ball and connect with the spirits of your Ancestors.  
 It is the Noche of Día de los Muertos the Day of the dead in Mexico.

These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of junk candy scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lids, etc etc. another commercialized holiday. The kiddies are given way too much sugar. The guys love to dress in drag, it is the modern version of the SATURNALIA. But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallow’ed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year when the Sun is in Scorpio, the sign of Birth, Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth. The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do a Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared/Scary Night. 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 Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick and dying, the mothers giving birth. It was misogynist fascist 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, Mass.   Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You only had to be a woman who owned land, who had some power and status and if you were old you were worthless. It was a land grab by the Catholic Church. You simply just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church. The genderside continues daily on this planet.

  I remember my own burning, I relived this memory of my past life during a HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK session. 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 own 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, your compassion. 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, nay millions of souls whose lives were taken by a cruel arrogant Church, hypocritical to the nth degree. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your BBF, your boss or colleagues 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 that shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and self, 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.” This was originally written in 2012.

You can see how far women’s awareness has shifted because now being a WITCH and the #MeToo movement and being further into the 1,000-year long reign of the 2000s initiated by the High Priestess in the Tarot #2 is burgeoning along. There may be the first Woman Vice President in U.S. History elected in a few days.  

As this is a New Year in the Ancient Pagan turning of the great circle of the year
Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love.


on the rare BLUE MOON put your crystals out under the FULL MOON light to be cleansed for a new year.

HALLOWEEN 2020 is a RARE BLUE Full MOON and under Covid-19 most people will not be trick or treating as usual. Which in this instance is a good thing. 2020 has turned everyone back into themselves to examine what is really valuable to them.

Lilith the Dark Goddess and CIRCE the Sorceress are conjunct the Moon at 1and 2 degrees Taurus.
Lilith and Circe are conjunct the MOON and URANUS an electrifying combo

MOON LILLITH, CIRCE brings up all the dark Feminine energy to Halloween especially as she is opposite the SCORPIO SUN which Lilith is associated with.

The dream of the rebirth of the FEMININE is here.

LILITH the demonized empowered Goddess of equality will rise and will be invisible but conjunct the Full Moon on HALLOWE’EN EVE and whisper in your soul and make the Divine Feminine, come alive and be heard. So sit in ceremony and scry on the night when the veils between the worlds is thinnest. Lilith will also come into your dreams. LILITH is KALI/DURGA and her wrath is nothing compared to any Hurricane.

HAPPY SAFE Hallow’ed Eve and I’ll see you as I fly on my broom

blessings, TARA

The veils between the worlds open.

Halloween, known as Samhain is the ancient pagan New Year. This is the night when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. Traditionally this is the night when you honor your departed ancestors, with ceremony, candles and prayers. It is the day to hold a seance. Set up an altar to honor those you loved and who loved you. Your physical DNA and the emotional and physical traits and talents of your ancestors actually lives in you.

Samhain rituals, wicca, pagan, Tara Greene

SAMHAIN SHAMANIC RITUALS

Bring out your crystals and special blackened water bowls to scry with.  Go visit your dead ancestors at cemeteries. If you have lost loved ones in the past year, ask these spirits to comfort, guide and support you. This would be the best day to tune into David Bowie, or Prince, two of the most beloved musicians who passed on in 2016. I will be channeling both of them tonight and will report afterward.

It’s also good to take a nature walk. Samhain rituals include bonfires, dancing, feasting and building altars to honor the ancestors. Some pagans bake special loaves of bread and leave offerings to the spirits outside their homes. 

In some Wiccan traditions, the Goddess has become the Crone.

samhain crone, Halloween, tara Greene

She is the Old One,  the wise woman who we turn to for wisdom from experience. Her counterpart is The God,the Horned One, the great antlered stag, the very masculine, sexually potent God of the Hunt. We honor the two at this time.

Bring in symbols of the God, antlers, acorns, pine cones, phallic symbols and symbols of the Goddess, red flowers, cups, and pomegranates.  If your tradition honors a specific pair of male and female deities, feel free to substitute their names in this ritual wherever it says God or Goddess.

Horned God, Halloween wicca, Tara Greene

Horned God, the Goddess’s Consort

Cast a circle to mark a sacred space. Before starting the ceremony, place three sheaves of corn or wheat around the ritual space. Place a statue or other images of the God and Goddess at the center of your altar. Around the statues, place five candles, red and black for the darker aspect of the Goddess, and green and brown to symbolize the wild male God and nature, and white for the central hearth and home and the New Year.

Near the center of the altar  put a plate of dark bread, for each person present, and cup of wine or cider.  The youngest person present acts as the Handmaiden, and the oldest as the High Priest (HP) or High Priestess.  If you’re performing this rite on your own, act both parts.  The H.Ps. lights the red and black candles, and says:

“We light the candles  in honor of the Goddess.
She is Maiden Mother and Crone.”

Next, the H.P. lights the brown and green candles, saying:

“We light the candles in honor of the masculine God.
He is wild and fertile and tonight we honor him as the Horned God.”

The Handmaiden takes the bread and walks the circle, offering each person a piece.  The H.P. says

“May the blessings of the Goddess be upon you.” The cup of wine or cider is passed around, and each person sips from the cup. As they do, the H.P. says:May the blessings of the God be upon you.”

The Handmaiden then lights the fifth candle, for the hearth, saying:

“This candle is lit in honor of hearth and home.
The mother and father, the Goddess and the God
watch over us tonight as we honor them.”

The High Priestess says

“We light the candles for the most powerful Goddess
and her mighty horned consort, the God,
and for the safety of hearth and home.
On this, night of Samhain, the Goddess is a wise Crone,
and the God is a wild stag, and we honor and celebrate their Union.”

The H.P. states

“This is the time between the worlds, a time of life and death.
This is a night unlike any other night.
Ancient ones, we ask for your blessings.
Goddess, great Crone, mother of all life,
we thank you for your wisdom.
Horned One, master of the wild hunt, keeper of the forest,
we thank you for all that you provide.”

Everyone can give thanks in their own way. Place offerings to them on the altar.

Once all the offerings have been made, and thanks given, consider the gifts that the gods have given you over the past year, and show your gratitude. Meditate on the new beginnings of Samhain. State new intentions for the New Year.

As this is also a New Moon in Scorpio the energy is stronger than normal on this day. 

The Scorpio Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn trines Chiron in Pisces inconjuncts Uranus in Aries and sextiles Mars in Capricorn. 

Scorpio is ruled by both Mars and Pluto as co-rulers so there easy access to this Moon deepens our ease of access to the Depth, the Underworld, Pluto’s realm, the realm of the Dead. This is the fertile land of the ghosts, ancestors, and our spirit guides. 

The inconjunct of Scorpio Moon to Uranus  brings in an element of surprise and chaos. Ride the electric current of Uranus energy to the farthest out unbeknownst worlds. This is inventive, pioneering, brave new horizons. 

The MOON is VOID of COURSE at 7:44 pm PDT/10:44 pm EDT/ Nov. 1st @ 2:44 a.m.

November 1st is the Day of the Dead in Mexico 

SUN trines NEPTUNE in PISCES  in the wee hours. I would stay up late Halloween night to really tap into this energy as it is super powerful and may blow your mind. Stay in the void the place of total creativity and potential.

I will be doing ceremony ritual and meditating, remembering my mother and father and ther ancestors. Sending you many blessings for the New Year.

Samhain by Lisa Thiel

Scorpio throwdown this week, love and danger

Mercury enters Scorpio Oct 24  -November 12.

The messenger trickster joins the sun, it’s obsessive thinking, messaging, sexting, sending “the looks that could kill” at your enemy. 

Alchemy Mercury astrology Tara Greene

Our brains, our thinking our minds are hardwired into FIXED mode. We are into sex, power, money, death, wealth. The big essentials. Please pay attention to the criminal behavior of the North Dakota Police to indigenous peoples peacefully protesting the DAP. They are pepper spraying, beating and arresting hundreds. The DAP is illegal and against EPA laws. The company and the N. Dakota government are colluding.

We are heading into the U.S. presidential election final leg there is only 15 days to go. This is a very very intense, SCORPIO’s- middle name week to add to it all.

Oct 24

The Moon is in LEO on MONDAY morning entering VIRGO in the evening to bring us some groundedness. 

Oct 25 VENUS in SAGITTARIUS SQUARE NEPTUNE @ 9+ degees

Venus trine neptune

this is a BEAUTIFUL but also hard SPIRITUAL LA LA LAND aspect. The dreamy over the rainbow, feet off the ground, stars in your eyes energy.

This energy is extremely good for artists, doing all kinds of creative work, and visualizations, especially near water and combining the fire element. Do be very careful not to be too spaced out as is the nature of this aspect. The challenge is to tell the truth, be honest and create intimacy, not fantasy projections

And do be especially careful about doing any kind of medication, drugs, alcohol and no mixing that stuff either. WOMEN be on high alert for date rape under this aspect. The Moon will be in Virgo opposite Neptune which helps you to stay grounded and foccussed.

Oct 27

Moon enters LIBRA where you are supposed to be all nice. 

SUN and MERCURY CONJUNCT on the 27th @ 4+ degrees SCORPIO

If you haven’t heard a shitload of insults from Donald Trump boy he will pile them higher than the Tower of Babel. 

Donald Trump/Babel, tara Greene

VENUS in SAG squares the NORTH NODE of the MOON @ 11+ degrees VIRGO

this is a very karmic aspect and deals with choices. I will write more later.

OCT. 28 

Moon inconjuncts NEPTUNE in PISCES to make for some difficult dreams

conjuncts JUPITER sextiles VENUS and SATURN  and squares

which is a very nice wonderful romantic dates and dinner night for serious elegance

Mars square Uranus Napoleon Brousseau Tara Greene

Water color by Napoleon Brousseau

another cosmically shaky day. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. Volcanoes, earthquakes, explosions, terrorist attacks, crazy drivers, wars starting, explosions.  Maybe an even bigger CRAZY INTERNET HACK or sunspot CME, Cardinal cross energy. This is heavy.

Oct 29 

VENUS conjuncts SATURN @ 14+ degrees on GREAT ATTRACTOR

WOW! Love and karmic truth coming from the greatest attraction center we know of in the universe. SPEAK Your truth, use the laws of attraction. focus on your highest greatest expansive energy. I will write in more depth about this one.

NEW MOON is @ 10:38 am PDT/ 1:38 pm EDT/ 5:38 pm GMT

SCORPIO NEW MOON at 7+ degrees SCORPIO
