Scorpio Season. Samhain, the Witches New Year. Strange brew.
Dark of the moon, Saturday the 26th. Saturn, Saturn everywhere. Banish. Burn. New Moon, Sunday, October 27th, 11:39 pm EST, in Scorpio. Veils are ripped off. See the harsh. Wrap it in love, wrap it in compassion, and let its colors be(come). STOP trying to change yourself. The question is NOT what is the spiritual action; the question is what is the humane action. Vulnerability is high right now, as is a tendency to overcomplicate pretty much anything. Over-complication is about self-protection. Get it? Your mantras for the week: I am not here to please you. And. I forgive myself everything.
Radical, revolutionary self-acceptance. Stop trying to fix the past, stop trying to change yourself. Take pleasure in your evil and your good; your nice and your not-so-nice. Each contains the other and you need all of it. Negative feelings do not create your reality. The next time someone tells me that negative feelings create my reality, I am going to hit them with a bat. And when they come to, I am going to say, you created that.
Of course we can impact our reality, but any kind of orthodoxy that is not mirrored, reflected, or supported by the workings of the eco-system on which our very lives depend, is not of, by, and for love. Lush-no-boundaries-love. We are all the same energy (love) in different form. There is form under the form and form under that, ad infinitum. I am the becoming, coming forth by day I become the night, I become the day, I am the becoming. Skip the dung ball (giggle). And if you don't know what that means read the Kheperi myth.
Mercury goes retrograde on Samhain (October 31). No better season than the time between now and winter solstice to review, to release, grieve, to mourn, to feel restless; to yearn beyond all reason — for what, you’re not sure. James Joyce wrote: "This race and this country and this life produced me. I shall express myself as I am."
Express yourself as you are.
Live loud, love fierce, and suffer no fools. Kat
