All Hallows Eve was originally a time to remember the dead particularly those sainted (known as 'Hallows'). Also believed by many to have its roots in the pagan tradition Samhain/Beltane which was a ritual time to light the fires, cleanse, protect and appease as the veils of the spirits were closest to the human world at this time of the year. Quite spookily timed this year we have a full moon bang on this spiritual night of nights. In fact the moon is in Bharani which has the deity Yama as its benefactor. Yama rules death and a Bharani moon is the doorway between different worlds. A symbol for this moon is a boat which transports us from one land to another.
So apart from delving into your cupboard for your Ouija board - which in your youthful naivety made you believe your aunt Hilda was trying to contact you to tell you you left the iron on...ooo scary - or dressing up like a corpse in need of a prophylactic - this moon represents a time for us to let go of what is haunting us. I use the word haunting in all its contexts - your past, your habits, your regrets, this year...Let that shit go and create/receive some new present trajectory. This moon is with Uranus so think outside of the box. Allow your quirkiest intuition to guide you into following your own path. The more unique and eccentric the better! Don't play safe!
This moon has the shakti to cleanse and remove impurities so even more so embrace the traditions of Samhain/Beltane - light a fire write all your grievances and throw it in, get out your sage and smoke out the dead energy - then get your death frock on and scare/dance your night away. Mercury and Mars currently in retrograde are still causing halts/frustrations in your energy and communication lines so use this night to let off some steam and howl at the moon. Go on...you know you want to.
