New Moon in Scorpio and Samhain

New Moon in Scorpio and Samhain

New Moon in Scorpio

The moon is new in Scorpio on October 26 (10:38 pm). The screw turns another rotation down the thread, reiterating a theme that occurred in early August. A break in the pattern or a change in rhythm is indicated by this new moon. Rebel archetypes don’t care to follow standard traditions with Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Libra.

Venus embodies the attraction principal, but when she’s in Scorpio it goes deeper than surface beauty and social niceties. A curious magnetism gravitating toward mystery depicts Venus in Scorpio, such as a ghost wife or zombie bride! Mars is the fighter and warrior archetype. When he’s in Libra, he isn’t hotly direct and forceful but instead dispassionately responsive. A transformative edge runs beneath the undercurrents of this new moon, as relationship dynamics come up to the surface for review.

The mood is highly celebratory October 31, yet hibernation mode begins shortly after! Samhain and Halloween mark Mercury beginning it’s retrograde in Scorpio (10:42 am) that lasts until November 20. As per usual this time of year, the veil between worlds becomes thin and gets even thinner yet when Mercury appears to rewind. Introspection leads to reflections that reveal buried treasures. Occult mysteries become glamorized! Spectres might pay a visit, what is it they have to say?

To tap into the power of transformation flowing through the air, light some of Shoyeido’s Diamond incense. This incense is designed to help you tap into your personal power to shine as bright and endure as long as a diamond. To help hear some of the messages coming through, add Eye of Horus’ Meditation Oil to your routine. This oil is designed to help you concentrate, focus, and find your spiritual center, opening you up to what the universe is trying to tell you. Finally, to break through the patterns and establish something new, light Coventry Creations’ Outta My Way candle. Part of the Wicked Witch Mojo line, this candle is meant to help you clear away the old and bring in the new.

Moon in Aries, Sun in Libra: Fairness and Justice

Moon in Aries, Sun in Libra: Fairness and Justice

Full Moon in Aries

The moon is full in Aries October 13 (4:07 pm)! A hot-temper seeks balance coolly with the sun in Libra. Icy politeness and diplomacy mitigate tough situations. Transformation is hinted at, but does an explosive power struggle become a part of the equation? Out of the blue dynamics are called to attention as a rebellious and daring edge reflects the need to break out of patterns in terms relationships, values and money. Residual twists and turns echo after what was started on the new moon September 28. Pros and cons are weighed, as feelings of discomfort arise at the threat of change. A purging of old baggage is apt.

The motivation to get up and go is fierce, trailblazing unmapped terrain! And yet taking time and following rules keeps this vim and vigor in check. Horses forget they are bound by reins, but the reins tighten as they forge ahead. How can structure and discipline be useful at this time?

Looking at what is unfair or out of balance motivates toward action, evening out the scales of justice. Deep intuitions point toward a vision. Optimism softens the hard edges in visioning what could be better.

To encourage yourself to keep balance during this time, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Amethyst incense. This smooth, silky blend of sandalwood, cinnamon, and saussurea is designed to bring balance and inspire insight. To increase your ability to concentrate and apply discipline to your energy, add some of Eye of Horus’ Focus Aid oil to your routine. This pure essential oil blend is ideal for work, study, or any project that requires your sharpest attention. To invoke the spirit of fairness, burn one of Coventry Creations’ Truth and Justice candles. With notes of frankincense, sandalwood, and myrrh, it’s reminiscent of temple incense and designed to call upon the spirit of universal balance and justice.

New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

The new moon is in Libra on September 28 (1:26 pm) following the Fall Equinox on September 23 (2:50 am).

Night and day are of equal length on the Fall Equinox as the sun enters Libra and emphasizes equality, fairness and justice. Libra is represented by the scales. What is out of balance and needs evening out? The goodies of the fall harvest are being collected and stored to give sustenance through the coming winter. A bittersweet sadness adds a touch of gray to the darkening skies as the spoils of the autumn are relished over October.

It’s time to start projects that can be completed over the long winter months. What are new ventures that can be delved into which take time, effort and dedication over a long period? In what context can teamwork be a helpful ingredient? The dreaming wheels are turning, showing visions of what salve needs to be placed on what wound. Make a fix-it plan based on where it hurts.

Yearnings to connect romantically and socially are stirred. A hard look at love could reveal the root of loneliness or isolation. Issues or blockages in relationships also make themselves known so they may be addressed. Relationships could take on a serious or committed tone, and some might be due for an ending. A surprise detour is in the mix.

To help bring some balance into your life and space, light one of Coventry Creation’s Inner Balance candles. This combination of cedar, sage, and jasmine is designed to help balance out chaotic energies and works best during the new or full moon. For some assistance in sparking those projects of yours, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Inspiration incense. With a sweet scent dominated by sandalwood notes, this incense is designed to gently encourage your creative spirit. Finally, for help in reconnecting with the spirit of love and letting it into your life, use some of the Eye of Horus’ Love Oil or Love Spray. This blend of essential oils was created to help you connect with love energies and allow those energies to surround and inspire you.
