Today is astrological Samhain and boasts a New Moon in mystical Scorpio. What an auspicious event! What a power-filled day!

Samhain celebrates the parting of the veils and opportunity to reach into the world of the Ancestors as we seek their wisdom, blessings and more. Astrological Scorpio enables dipping into a watery well of mysticism, intuition and transformation. The New Moon provides a quickening that catalyzes all that stands as opportunity for rebirth, emergence from the source of its creation and seeding towards the future.

I love the dynamics of this New Moon/Samhain combo! And, I am choosing to dive deeply into those fixed dark waters of Scorpio. Scorpio is the only astrological sign that boasts three (3) levels of expression- the scorpion-the eagle and the Phoenix.

As the scorpion, the energy is covert and strikes out of nowhere with a certain amount of brooding and self-directed reflection. When this energy reveals itself, we stand back, silently observe and assess, taking it all in. We don the masks that are designed to provide the world with the image we wish to project and when the time is right we reach out spilling our emotive truths, often stinging as we move our course.

As the eagle, Scorpio’s energy approaches from the heights. Again, much surveying and observation, and just like the eagle, when the precise prey is detected, the energy swoops in, filling the vessel to the brim with waters that are purposeful and emotions that are pointed and directed.

And, finally as the Phoenix, the energy of water behaves as the quickening fires of a womb of transformative creation, that must first burn to purify, render down to ash before it can be made manifest once again and arises anew, similar , et dynamically transmuted.

These three visions align quite beautifully with the penultimate Goddess of Samhain, Hecate. SHE who dons the three faces of maiden, mother and crone-creatrix, bone mother and necromantor of the dead. Hecate is also a Goddess of the Moon and HER heart beats within the waters of Lady Moon’s faces.

Hecate’s Maiden hides her true face as she hones her skills and assesses how she will decide to move through her life. She holds her emotions close to heart and when betrayed or otherwise provoked, can lash out, stinging un-relentlessly, and just as the scorpion itself, is often oblivious to what its object of attention is.

Hecate’s Mother feeds and nurtures her children, the unloved-the unwanted and in keeping with a Mother’s love, provides ruthlessly and with precise intent what is needed for survival. The Eagle hunts because it must. The Eagle ascends into the skies to protect  and hold vantage point of dominant sight. And, Hecate the Mother exerts her care with the pointed talons that have been sharpened by life’s experience.

Hecate’s Crone calls to those who have passed beyond the veils. Hecate, the crone shares HER wisdom only with those who lay themselves bare and render themselves to ash, willingly awaiting her transformation and blessing. The Phoenix of Hecate’s underworld passes through the Gates of Death, to be born anew flaming and glorious in its Light.

Returning From the Veils

I call to the wisdom of this New Moon to begin the work of self. I will scry deeply into the waters that hold the waxing reflection of SHE who has welcomed my beloved ancestors; those whose blessings  I seek on this day of honoring those beyond the veils.

I have stepped through the gates and called out to those who have come before me and in the darkness I have felt the love and joy of communion. The mystery of these Veils holds the keys to all that I may bring into my life. I will forever feel the grace of my ancestors and know that they are guiding a newly honed will that has emerged from devotion and work towards rising strong and potent in the fullness of my light.

Tonight will begin a new journey of honoring myself as I shed what clings to me of death’s decay and rise transformed, wings beating fiercely with passion and new life. Tonight I return from the veils carrying the gifts of my ancestors as we blaze a path of new birth..
