It's the most auspiciously supernatural time of the year, but sometimes I'm haunted by the ghosts of Samhains past, reminding me of times of being spiritually unmoored and vulnerable to energetic predation. My thoughts turn to being in all kinds of ritual circles when living in San Francisco, many anchored in the all-you-can-eat new age buffet with the main event the annual Spiral Dance.
The Spiral Dance was culturally lifted from a European tradition whose remnant can still be seen in the Chain Dance of the Faroe Islands. Also, here's an image from the Netherlands circa 1939 of what's called the Serpent-Labyrinth dance.
While not a tradition that lines up with Samhain in the Faroe Islands, the tradition shows what likely used to be widespread in Europe and involved the whole community. Just imagine the energetic power, the currents moving through as ballads are sung that tell the story of the folk.
Super and Natural
For those that love the time of the thinning veil and all things mysterious, this upcoming Taurus Full Moon looks set to deliver. Smack dab on the 31st, it's beckoning those of us that want to find something authentic beyond all the election triggering and doom and gloom of the mainstream death cult. The fork in the road or bifurcation is real - some seem to be succumbing to the delusion while others are seeking to live outside it. The choice is between the natural and the artificial, as it has been for some time. The other choice seems to be between some sense of health and chronic dis-ease.
What's notable is that the scrambler or genius-striking planet Uranus will be aligned with the Moon and that means directly opposite the Scorpio Sun. In my dreams, people spontaneously shake off the artificial rules being imposed from the top-down and realize the urgent need to authentically re-root in nature and its cycles. For each person, it could be taking steps to create natural abundance or realizing there's a path of freedom (also a Uranian theme) beyond some kind of hold on the psyche (Scorpio).
I also think some might see the image in the mirror change with Mercury in Libra (still retrograde). It seems like a fine time to clear the air in a relationship and change together. Or the events of the past could be seen in a new light, which helps with the letting go which happens this time of year to make room for the new.
I had made a recording for this post, but realize Spreaker charges for more storage, so I will take that as a sign to take a breather from making audios. Thank you to those that listened, and I wish you a wonderful Halloween / Samhain.
Build Back Better with Nature
Finding comfort in being true to what feels natural.
Venus in all-natural Virgo will feel the LOVE when meeting up with the three biggies in Capricorn (Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn) this week. What's favored: the true meaning of what's essential, patient attention as a show of care, thoughtful gestures, earthiness, commonsense, awareness of commonsense, artisan goods and crafts, homemade gifts, nuances and subtleties, purging what's toxic.
Deep honesty and truth emerges.
Mercury Rx in Scorpio will be opposite Uranus in Taurus, and then on Saturday exact to the Sun, making this a week for news or realizations that really set things in motion. It could be revelations that unravel something or expose what's really going on. More may surface from the tech-entrainment trance.
The Plunge in the Dark
The Sun in Libra is making a square to Saturn today (the 18th), before going into Scorpio on the 22nd for more spiraling inward and cozy nesting in the darkening time of the year. I reckon this Sun-Saturn angle could bring out edginess in relationships, an awkwardness due to changing conditions....some of this could be growing pains, part of a maturation process. What I like about this time of year is the promise of real to-the-roots change that comes from going within, in anticipation of emerging again in the spring.
I saw this gem - "don't worry about the election, save your soul..." and it reminded me to stay alert to what's happening beyond the political theatre. For those who can handle some advanced truthtelling, I recommend listening to Mike and Tabitha's new show Expedition Esoterica in which they conclude that the plandemic of 2020 is a false flag for transhumanism.
I woke up mulling this over, fitting for the astrology of now - Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio today with its themes of possession, enslavement, trauma, hypnotic suggestion, rituals of control, etc. It's daunting to realize how much of our "culture" has been one of programming and numbing our senses. And that though much of the steering was leading to this dystopian turning point. we've already been living under an artificial or alien influence. It's a challenge to deprogram and detox, but this is the mercurial season for it.
In an on-the-nose example, all the pics in this post are from the plandemic pre-programming from the 2012 Olympics in London.
IRL Next Big Thing?
It's important to find a way to fall in love with real life again. I've noticed this for years, how real life becomes dull and the vivid color and entrainment of the virtual is an escape from it. There's even a physical aspect to entrainment to TV and the current technologies that's altered our brains, engendered passivity. Some may have to literally fight to stay human (such as not having their genetics altered), while others may not even know there is a threat.
Mercury's retrograde in Scorpio can be a time for getting to the source of trauma, but also to look at ways we may be programmed at the subliminal level. I know I've realized programs that I was indoctrinated into and been amazed at how I didn't know what I didn't know. The stakes are becoming higher now, as it appears those in control are going for a new stage of enslavement.
The knowledge of how the mind is controlled is power, however. It leads us to making better choices and not living in a state of induced trauma. This affects our relationships, of course, and how we engage with the wider world, too.
The general trend across many generations has been toward dehumanization, treating children in school settings like animals or biocomputers to be programmed to serve the powers' agenda. This has struck at the heart of European civilization since it goes against the idea of each of us being ensouled and capable of excellence. The challenge is one of healing from this demoralization and remembering who we truly are.

Mercury Rx - Oct 13 to Nov 3
I like the mood-setting possibilities of this Mercury retro, starting this week on October 13 in deep-water Scorpio. The truth about a situation could be dark, but lead to objective clarity when Mercury retros into airy Libra toward the end of the month.
I made this recording on the retrograde, with some thoughts on the "virus" as a psychic attack on the public and mind control in general. The stars seem aligned for more to be set free by realizing the way our society is manipulated for the agendas of others. Having a clear picture of what's really happening helps each of us make the best decisions for our future, beyond choices made out of fear. This is along that theme of 'coming to your senses" that culminates with the Full Moon in Taurus on Samhain (Oct 31).
It reminds me of this quote: "Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one." Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Charles Mackay.
In the recording, I read a bit from Dion Fortune's Psychic Self-Defense....she writes among other things that a vegetarian diet leads to hypersensitivity in the European and isn't good for those under psychic attack. She recommends plenty of sunlight to strengthen the aura, along with "games, physical training, massage, anything that improves the bodily condition..."
The changes this year affect most of us, and some of us may be doing battle in some way. It could be fighting authority or it may be something within, like wrestling with your own confidence to deal with all that's happening, restrictions, upheaval, etc.
With Mars still retrograde in Aries (to November 13), it's a good time to root out habits of passivity. One way that's a part of our culture is how we chill and absorb others' vision of the future through movies or TV shows, so many of them dystopian. Another is going along with the hive mind on social media without using our reasoning minds. This is a time (Libra season) when visions of alternative way could come into view, in an inverted world, the flip side could be the right side.
As things heat up into fall and winter, it's wise to think strategically about battles. Here's a quote that has the Aries imperative of being singular and potent playing against a force that's likely bigger than you (represented by the planets in Capricorn). Again, it could be fighting 'the Man' or it could be a showdown with your own ability to take yourself seriously, be the authority or author of your life.
Know Yourself, Know Your Enemy
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu
All the cardinal (initiating) energies will be engaged since a Cancer Moon takes us into Saturday, making everyone more sensitive and perhaps looking for a safe harbor in all the chaos. Mars Rx forms a grand cross with the Sun Libra, Moon Cancer, and the formidable planets in Capricorn, so for some, this might feel like a hanged-man kind of weekend....the timing of events may seem beyond our control. Mars makes things seem urgent and pressing, so even if the timing isn't right to act, there may be a way to prepare for what you sense might lie ahead...
