Happy Halloween, everybody! First off, I'd like to thank some wonderful clients who have come to the Inner Makeup Studio the past few days, from distant places such as Hunan, Brooklyn, and England. It's amazing how many people, places, and things converge upon this small city. And thanks to our die-hard Inner Makeup devotee, Lynn, for attending our weekly Inner Makeup gathering Sunday morning.
But now to Halloween, All Hallow's Eve. What is sacred about this night? As we've shifted into Scorpio, the days are longer, the night is greater, and our deepest, darkest impulses emerge to the fore, perhaps having been rejected by ourselves and others, banished to forbidden places. Halloween is a chance for those ghouls to surface, but beware of the deal you make with the devil, if you are to entertain these ghosts. Decadence comes at a cost, and Scorpio knows this the best, ruling the underworld and death, all too ready to play the undertaker. So have fun, express yourself, revel in your garish expressions of creativity, but do ask, is there another way to channel this energy? Can these impulses, exciting as they are, be harnessed and used transformationally for brighter days? This is the question Scorpio, and Halloween, asks, and since we synchronistically are ensconced in the new moon phase, what do we wish for as we move forward, as the new moon is a new start. But since Scorpio is the great regulatory grim reaper of the zodiac, we may instead ask what needs to go, rather than what our souls ecstatically and aggressively want. Happy Halloween!
