“Access The Ancestors”

The veil between the worlds is thinning as we head towards the midpoint between Autumn and the Winter Solstice. Called Samhain in the Celtic tradition, you may know this energy as All Hallows Eve, Halloween, Day of The Dead (Dia De Los Muertos), All Soul’s Day or All Saint’s Day. Recognized in many wisdom traditions, this time of year is when the Spirit World is more present and available for us to work with. The Super Libra New Moon on Oct 16 opens the portal to the Ancestors and The Spirt World, and holds that energy through the Scorpio Full Moon on Oct 31.
This Super New Moon is closer to the Earth and has a greater physical pull on the ocean waters, the tectonic plates, and the atmosphere. This pull is also felt physically and energetically in our own inner being. The moon connects to our inner waters, intuition and emotions, so this will be a magnetic moon. The sign of Libra is about Relationship and Balance. The Libra New Moon will also be squaring Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter, while opposing Mars, Black Moon Lilith, and Eris (the Goddess of Discord). This is an intense “T-Square” between the personal self, The Karmic Wave of 2020, and Warrior/Kali energy. Be aware as we move through this Super Dark Moon energy to seek balance and work with the Ancestors- they are willing and waiting if you call them in. The shadow side of Libra energy is Controlling and Co-Dependent.
On Oct 18, the Sun squares Saturn, and Mars squares Jupiter. The Sun and Mars are personal energies and share much in common- The Persona, Desire, and Initiative. Saturn can be Karma, Delays, and Rules. Jupiter is Trust, Faith and Beliefs. This can be a day where we feel tested in what we seek, and tested in our Trust. Stay to your center. Pray. Mediate. Call on the Ancestors. This same day Venus will oppose Neptune. Our sense of Self-Worth is opposite the Cosmic Ocean of Spirit. On one side, it could be tuning into our spiritual path with the prayer, mediation, and self-awareness, on the other side it may feel like isolation, loneliness, and swirling in the shadows. Reach out for help if you need it. Seek guidance from the ancestors or reach out to a trusted friend.
There is reprieve in the spiritual weather from Oct 19-21 when Venus trines Jupiter & Pluto. Again, Venus is our Self-Worth, Love and Self-Care. Jupiter is Truth and Trust. Pluto is the Soul. This is a time to seek wholeness as an expression of Self-Love, meaning you acknowledge both the light and shadow side of yourself and you take care of your shadow, your wounds, and your fears without denying them. It is deep self-care to hold your dark-side with Love.
On Oct 19 Mercury will also oppose Uranus. Both energies are Wild-Cards, the Heyoka or the Coyote. Mercury is the Mind and Uranus is the “Great Awakener.” Uranus seeks to bring us into our highest potential, however it does not care if that is done by Revelation or Trauma- both will get you there. This is great time to mediate, pray and access the ancestors to help you.
And now, Scorpio season begins with the Sun going into the sign on Oct 22. Scorpio is Death, Decay, Intensity, Rebirth and Transformation. Just look at nature this time of year- the leaves are falling back to the earth and the death cycle is in full swing. This energy is further intensified by Mercury Retrograde in the same sign (Oct 13-Nov 3). Scorpio energy is about returning to the Earth, the Emotions, The Intuition, and the Ancestors in the Spirit World.
One has many ancestral lineages- our Physical Family Lines (Parents, Grandparents, etc) Spiritual Ancestors (Teachers of Great Love like Buddha, Jesus, or Quan Yin) Animal Totems (Animal Spirits), Elemental Ancestors (Earth, Water, Air, Fire, Crystals), Plants, and Star Beings.
Begin to make alters this time of year, do ceremony, pray, and speak with your lineages. The veil is thin and the portal is open to the spirit world. Oct 23 is the Aquarius Half Moon will be the mid-point of the lunar cycle. Venus will trine Saturn on Oct 24, brining a karmic boost to our Self-Care and Self-Worth.
On Oct 25 the Sun will conjunct Mercury in Scorpio. Mercury is the mind and the Sun is our Heart. This is mind arriving in the heart, or Heart based Consciousness. Allow the mind to observe at this time and allow it to be guided by the heart, the ancestors, the wind in the trees and the fires of ceremony.
Finally, Mercury and Venus enter Libra on Oct 27. Mercury is retrograding back into this sign and Venus comes Home. Venus loves Libra, giving a boost to relationships and balance- but be aware of control and codependence issues. This will bring us to our Scorpio Full Moon on Oct 31, illuminating the portal of All Hallows Eve, Samhain and Day of the Dead. Continue to work with the ancestors and access their wisdom, love and healing. Walk as if you you have 3,000 ancestors supporting you- because you do.
