Ghosts* Versus Demons – honestly, what is the difference? Multiple astrological factors make September a month of clearing so it IS worth considering.
Ghosts tend to hang around in your psyche, like chthonic echoes or the ethereal residue of previous loves, defeats and other intense at the time experiences. Generally, the stronger your Qi, the weaker they are. Ghosts like damp, hangovers and passive-aggression.
They can turn a healthy “lesson learned” style remorse into toxic regret. Sometimes they’re violet in mood, poignant and melancholy but fleeting.
Other times they hang around like a morose house guest, too unmotivated to even rattle anything but unwilling to leave. But up your Vibe and they can’t handle it. Like candida in a healthy gut.
Demons are different. They need to be actively rooted out, identified as in actually named – what the fuq are you and how did you get in? – confronted and ejected.
Demons often emerge only when you are operating at a higher level and killing it with the Awesome. Suddenly, voila there it is. Demons can even drive people, relentlessly. Unlike ghosts, they get stronger as you do. Demon Eradication often takes therapy or intense commitment.
In many myths involving them, the protagonist stops running, turns to face it and before beginning the process of elimination actually thanks the demon for what it did give, in among the rest of it. Sometimes – for example – a demon of rage can be the impetus to escape a terrible circumstance.
The finale of Saturn square Neptune is optimal for both ghost busting AND demon identification/clearing.
* By “ghosts” i am not referring to the apparitions or soul manifestations of people and animals who have passed. They are a whole separate deal.
