The Veil is Transparent – and an Illusion… Cosmic Blessings for Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, and All Souls Day!

Uuuuhhh, very SCORPIOnic times (SUN, MERCURY, and JUPITER – for one more week)….!

Oct 29 / 30 will be super watery:
With early / mid
 Water Trines between the SUN in SCO & MOON in CAN & NEPTUNE in PI, and an end-of Water Trine with MERCURY / JUPITER in SCO, and CHIRON in PI….
Feeling and revealing what’s otherwise hidden, and in the Dark… magical mystery immersion…
Letting ourselves GO into the unknowable…

The Veil is transparent, and the cosmic Web connects us in the ONE on Oct 30 evening the MOON enters LEO for a Halloween full of Fun, Magic, Mystery, and creative Imagination.


Happy Halloween, on Oct 31!

Impermanent Pumpkin Art, as seen in 2009(!) at the former yearly Fernwood Pumpkin Yard!  It was one of the last years of its ‘incarnation’, at the carving house community that used to produce prolific perishable pumpkin art. Spirit prevails, even though forms – like pumpkins disintegrate… 


We’re now approaching in the Zodiac cycle of the SUN the Heart of the SCORPION the center of the Fall Season and Celtic festival of Samhain.

Which was traditionally celebrated on Oct 31 when the ‘Summer’ and harvest time ended. On Nov 1 began a new Celtic calendar year. 
With large fires, the Celtic people thanked the SUN God for the good harvest, and expelled the evil spirits who wandered around that night.

On Oct 31 also those who died in the past year were commemorated. Many believed that the dead returned to their old homes in the night to find warmth and friendship. The lit pumpkins at the door steps or in the windows symbolize skulls with the eternal light of the soul in it. The spirits who had not walked home into the light, wandering at night, scared people, and played tricks on them.

Nov 1 was eventually declared by the Church the Day of All Saints (holy ones), and Nov 2 All Souls Day.

‘All Hallows Evening’ or simply ‘Hallows E’en’ became later Halloween.

Samhain Blessings!

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with Halloween / SAMHAIN, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lughnassadh / Lammas, Mabon / Fall Equinox

Even though, mid SCORPIO / central Fall is traditionally celebrated with Halloween / Samhain on Oct 31, the exact centre (15°) of SCO is not on Oct 31 but round Nov 7.

This year, we’ll have a mid-SCORPIO NEW MOON on Nov 7!
Very potent times with strongly concentrated energies that can bring out extremes and big contrasts… – which are guide posts to transformation.

Stay tuned for the NEW MOON ASTRO~NEWS!
And don’t get attached – or I shall say, check out where you do get attached, acknowledge it (don’t leave it ‘in the dark’) – so that it can change…


Feliz Dias de los Muertos Oct 31 – Nov 2!

Blessings for All Saints Day on Nov 1, and All Souls Day on Nov 2!

Mexican Dia de los Muertos Calavera Altar (picture from Wiki Commons)

In Catholic Bavaria where I come from, my biological ancestors are from and my family lives, on All Saints Day (Nov 1), families visit the graves of their ancestors, after a mass, similarly to Dia de los Muertos in Mexico yet more solemnly.

A time of bringing fresh flowers, love, prayers and candles to the resting place of their bones, and to honour the undying soul.
Maybe a time to let go, to forgive, and know, Love is all that matters.

Halloween pumpkins with candles inside originally represented skulls with the eternal light of the undying soul ‘inside’. Through dying and transforming appearances, Light prevails.

The carved face or feature is the ‘façade’ and appearance, and the candle light is Spirit ‘behind’ and ‘inside’ it..

Perhaps a different way of looking at ‘carved pumpkins’ or of carving one…. And a different way of looking at ANY appearances…

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.
