Samhain Southern Hemisphere style is confusing. Do you take the weather as your cue (Samhain is seasonally Winter) or go with it being a Scorpio time? Regardless of how you intend to celebrate/ignore so-called Halloween, in Pagan lore, it is Samhain, the festival of the dead. No candy, no costume, just an honoring of those who have left this dimension already. It seems a more fitting event to occur at the beginning of Winter – as it does in the Northern Hemisphere -but it is always at the 8th degree of Scorpio.
Samhain Southern Hemisphere Confusion? It’s the 8th Degree of Scorpio That Matters
Halloween/Samhain always evokes surrealism. The works of artists like Leonora Carrington, Leonor Fini and Remedios Varo blend the prosaic with the paranormal.
Samhain Southern Hemisphere Style Means Honoring The Dead
Even if you don’t want to, it is a day of the year when the veils between the dimensions are flimsy, and you sense them. A scent that evokes memory flow, Deja Vu, or a sudden sharp realization of how a particular person influenced your life. There is no heaven above and hell below. The Christians cribbed their idea of hell from their inquisition chambers. And heaven is all around us, concealed, as any quantum physicist or shaman could attest.
The Anima Mundi Is The World Soul
To artists like the surrealists above, other dimensions existed simultaneously with our mundane existence. Even mundane does not mean ‘dull’ as it is often suggested. It means worldly. As in anima mundi is the soul of the world.
Stolen Valour – the campaign against people who impersonate serving soldiers for sex, ego and veteran discounts – is so Saturn in Sagittarius. The vids online of these phony “heroes” being unmasked by veterans is underscored by the unbearable sadness of the Forever Law.
How low would you need to be to steal the ‘mana’ of soldiers without going through the actual military aspect of it? Not going to war is honorable. Being against it makes sense. But to pretend to be a veteran?
This gentleman is the total opposite of all that.
This is Master Sergeant Joshua L Wheeler, who, a few days ago, died in a bid to free 60+ hostages from ISIL. They were to be executed the next morning. Regardless of your thoughts on American foreign policy, this was a successful mission. Wheeler was a Cherokee Indian and a member of the elite Delta Force. I once read that the only American military unit to have a Wiccan priest was Delta Force.
From Indian Country Today:
Most recently, Wheeler had been assigned to Army Special Operations Command at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina—the Cherokee historical homelands. He divided his down time between North Carolina and Oklahoma.
Cherokee Principal Chief Bill John Baker, in his role as mourner-in-chief, released a statement reading in part:
Cherokee Warrior And Total Mars Person
Our hearts go out to the Wheeler family for their tragic loss. Master Sergeant Joshua Wheeler was a highly decorated member of the Delta Force unit whose mission in Iraq was freeing hostages held by ISIS. Like so many of our Cherokee warriors, Joshua died serving our great country and we are forever indebted to him for his bravery and willingness to accept the most dangerous missions… Joshua is a true American hero and we will always honor his life and sacrifices at the Cherokee Nation.
That the first American military casualty against ISIL is a native American seems poignant. He was a Scorpio with Mars Retrograde at the potent Zero degree of Cancer square Pluto in Libra and exact square Lilith in Aries. AKA a Mars Person.
