Scorpio Season lasts from October 23 to November 21, thus including Halloween, a day steeped in tradition, stemming from pagan origins and going back to ancient times.
Samhain - A Liminal Time Of Life and Light
Having its origins in the Gaelic festival Samhain, Halloween is a day believed to be one that allows for an easier connection between the physical world and the spiritual world and is often associated with death and the afterlife. Samhain also marks the beginning of Winter as it is about halfway between the autumn equinox and winter solstice.
This is a time of year where one can especially acknowledge and give reverence to death and birth using nature as a helpful guide to better understand this all present cycle of life.
Such seemingly heavy matters can feel unsettling in their dark facade, so it’s a good reminder to purposefully stay grounded and root down into one’s unchanging inner being as well as pay special attention to themes of release and unraveling, especially when it comes to inner processing.
Scorpio Season - Watery Depths Meet Steady Transformation
Scorpio season, which is one of the 12 astrological seasons that happen each year, definitely has its own unique characteristics that it ushers in at this time of year. Scorpio is also associated with the planet Pluto which is the planet of death and rebirth, correlating further with the themes in the Samhain celebrations. Pluto also influences our destinies, giving us our biggest desires in life, while simultaneously reminding us just how short our existence actually is. A good motivation to make something memorable during the precious time we are here on this planet. Being a water element and fixed cardinal sign Scorpio embodies the unique combination of all that is mysterious, intuitive, deep and sensitive along with practicality, consistency and stability.
We invite you to embrace this time of ever approaching darkness to reach into your own power, sensuality and intuitive nature.
