When Your Halloween Is Genuinely Weird

Filed in Astro-Passages

Some Halloweens have no particularly magical significance. They pass by in a blur of sugar, costumes, and pumpkins. And if it is haunting you’re after, try the Moon-Pluto Lunar Portal every month.

Like most Pagan festivals, it is seasonal and agricultural in tone. Halloween was held traditionally in the Northern Hemisphere as an acknowledgment of the coming dark in a climate where Winter could wipe you out. It honored the dead but also included rituals to scare off any potential such threat.

So Halloween can seem arbitrary, a decadent binge-out and vague nod to the generations who lived through eras where any Pagan celebration was a crime.

However, what if Halloween was genuinely weird? This year it is.

The Horoscopes are going to be talking more about this over the coming weeks but basically: The Sun will be at 8° Scorpio which is the Halloween/Samhain degree. It’s always there.

But Venus and Uranus will be in exact opposition at Zero Taurus and Zero Scorpio, with the Moon’s Nodes squaring Venus and Uranus from Zero Leo and Zero Aquarius. It’s unusual. I can’t find a previous time it occurred. The Venus-Uranus part of this happened first around September 12 and repeats in December. No way will relationship stasis hold.

Uranus square the Nodes is a gigantic catalytic vortex vibe. It is in effect from now until December 31, but exact on Halloween. It’s rad for relationships, new friends, regeneration and original business concepts. It’s geopolitically wired: note the incoming Uranus in Taurus themes already – food security, trade wars, bees, honey, nationalism versus globalism.

On a personal level, it could manifest as sudden love developments, inventions, and clarity re where or how you want to base yourself. Think also grassroots feminist-witch revival.  It’s the weirdest Halloween vibe in memory and it’s all happening across the Zero Degrees Axis.

Thoughts?

I am freaking out about what this means as this Plutonic week has seen me fighting with my new flatmate of 3 wks to stop using fragrant washing powder as it has triggered my asthma to the point of inflammation in the lungs and hypersensitive to everything chemical – ciggies, any kind of motorised fumes, even just normal disinfectants which i was fine before. Had to go to doctor to get meds for it. Have had to give notice on the flatmate today. Will have to follow up with application to Civil tribunal to evict him. And that’s where Halloween… Read more »

My sun is 0 Leo (in the first)!

Born with North Node in (late) Aqua, so have been processing the interesting vibes of having the reversed Nodes for the past however long.

What to expect?!

Had a very powerful magical healing dream last night. Mystic I think those snakes on your head came to help me. I was on a busy Melbourne street crying and babbling loudly and incoherently. Full on emotional distress a business woman, strong with a short blonde bob came up to me and said she will take me to her healer. She got lost in the crowd, it didn’t matter, I was being pulled to the healer. And there he was a small Asian man. Then I saw the business woman but she had black hair this time. She nodded to… Read more »

I think healing dreams like this are sometimes classified as “numinous dreams”

Sounds very wonderful. Here’s to being wild and free.

I googled NUMINOUS DREAMS, there is a wealth of information there connected to Carl Jung, spirituality, healing etc. I suggest ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEIR DREAMS to have a look. Very intelligent and relevant writing.

Wow-super powerful symbols there! In many traditions initiation involves being devoured/dismembered and put together again as the “new you”. And we all know how wide spread snake symbolism is ( writing g this I think of Pluto as raw power – destructive but also the basis of new life with extra omph like volcaic activty devastating a landscape but laying the foundation for new ultra fertile soil. The dream sounds like a major transformation of energy patterns that have been engraved on your b.eing whether this life or over many… plutonic indeed!

My mind is quiet at the moment, just want to chill, not think.

Again thank you, after processing the recent big healing I googled snakes and spirituality. The 2 things that jumped to my attention were the medical symbol. You know the one a snake/snakes around a pole. That’s what it felt like when the snakes were going through me. But the connection for me was clearing abuse (verbal and slightly physical) by an acupuncturist, yes I was just a client getting treatment from him and it happened on the clinic table. Oh yes buyer beware even with alternative medicine. I think this healing was to also restore my faith in acupuncture as… Read more »

No wonder I took so well to Merlin the series on TV at the beginning of my Neptune transit 4 year ago.

And how I totally understood the misrepresentation and vindication of Morgana and her sisterhood.

Duplicity on TV : who would have thought ! ?

I’m constantly surprised and delighted by the synchronicity I find on this site. Minutes before I logged on, I was recalling one of my numinous dreams.
Snakes are not only about healing but also wisdom (and fertility/creativity).
In one of my ‘special’ dreams I was visited by the Goddess in bat form – and if anyone has any info relating to her manifestations in this form, I’d love to hear.

Wish Upon a Star
Wish Upon a Star

I did a google search for you and according to Celtic lore bats are connected to Witches !?!

In Greek Mythology the Goddess Hecate( and her many variations) can shapeshift into a bat.

Leutogi is also a Polynesian Goddess who protects bats..

Camazotz means death bat in Mayan Mythology. It is a bat Goddess?

There are probably more if you keep searching.

Any one know any others?

Maybe investigate local lore in your country / region too. It could be a message from close to home? I.e. the particular, rather than the general.

The precursor to this dream was watching Mel Gibson in Braveheart for the first time with a few glasses of wine.

I was feeling his passion and strength vicariously. I loved his unswaying, pure focus.

He was willing to die on his feet, not live on his knees.

I could also hear the song ” I am Sailing” in my head so I watched Rod Stewart singing it in his Sailor’s suit on you tube.

Oh music and film: their subliminal power.

They both filled me with Joy !

feeling a bit wistful and autumnal. been taking a dance improvisation class and there is a lot of talk about staying with the tension because that’s where it gets interesting. attempting to exist more in my body instead of fleeing.

this feels like a month where it will be a challenge to just sit with what comes up.

Halloween’s not really my thing but that new moon on Tuesday will be, as it’s conjunct my IC Pluto. If that’s not at least some kind d of symbolic rebirth then hey, although I am wondering what I can use to snap me out of my inertia this time around. It’s like I’m riding (autocorrect said rising) my way out of this with a donkey and a cart, tho donkeys and the hoofed quadrupeds got us to the start of the industrial revolution so we’re cool.

Ahh I hear this, but it sounds like you are finding and feeling your own way through. “let trees and flowers and moss grow in the worn track you just left behind” – this! Benign neglect as you go click your little lambie feet along new pastures. Have fun, Pi.. We all deserve a little bit of that!

Yes I’m not quite sure what I’m doing, but it’s all I know to do. I’ve made a liar out of myself with the triple Libra too, but that was by accident not design..

I’m a Sun/Rising Libra; my planet Venus is retrograding (into Libra at some point, apparently). I’m also a Moon Aquarius, and 1) its ruler Uranus is doing this delightfully spooky thing now with the retrograding Venus, 2) Mars has been retrograding around Aquarius forverer; my natal Mars is conjunct my Sun in 12th house, for bonus points of all that. Moreover, I am in the first third of my first Saturn return (turning 29 next week; natal Saturn in Capricorn, for chrissake). 2018 should be THE YEAR for me. Nearly-suicidal crisis was somehow averted in May-June… so far so good!… Read more »

My natal moon is at 27 Cancer, which I just realized will be involved in (dragged kicking into) this grand cross via the North Node at 0 Leo. Things could get really interesting… good thing it’s a work night and I’m sure I’ll just stay home with the lights out and watch Rocky Horror Picture Show for the millionth time, lol.

Okay so I am not terribly au fait with progressions (apart from when my progressed moon was in Pisces and I LZed out to the maxx, ugh) but had a look now and it seems I’m having a progressed Saturn return – to the exact degree, as close as 18 mins even (ie my progressed Saturn is at the same place as my natal Saturn). Is this a real slow-moving, near permanent thing? Or is this an actual transit that I would notice and feel? My natal Saturn sets off a doozy of a T-square in my natal chart so… Read more »

Oh this is one hell of an interesting cross.
Zero degrees Venus and Uranus will be in 2nd and 8th house (by 1 degree, otherwise they’d be in 3rd and 9th).
Zero degrees NN and SN will in my 11th and 5th respectively.
Sun at 8° Scorpio is sextile to my Ascendant to the degree.
Relationship stasis has been my prison for the last 4 years.
I’ll stay open to “No way will relationship stasis hold” affirmation.

It’s also smack bang on my ascendant 8 degrees Scorpio. I had an overwhelmingly intense love vibe around September 12 with a energy practitioner I see regularly. Nothing is happening between us and I don’t think ever will but the intensity when we were in each other’s presence was OTT that week, but now it’s faded out. It was like soulmate love vibe rather than a lust vibe. I did do our composite chart on Astro.com. Pluto conjunct ascendant and Sun and mercury in the 7th house and Moon Venus and Mars in the 8th house. I wonder if this… Read more »
