October’s Monthly Insight
By Taylor V. October 1, 2021
Halloween has always been a holiday filled with mystery, magic and superstition. It began as a Celtic end-of-summer festival during which people felt especially close to deceased relatives and friends. Over 2,000 years ago the Celtics celebrated their New Year on November 1st. They chose this date because November signified the end of the summer harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, (a time of year that was often associated with human suffering.) Many Celtics believed that the night before, referred to as All Hallows Eve, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred, and the ghosts of those who have passed could return to Earth. This was known as the festival of Samhain, where many individuals would light bonfires and dress in costumes to ward off spirits. The American Halloween tradition of trick-or-treating most likely dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England, and the tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots.
The Cosmos and Marigold flowers are typically associated with the month of October. Marigolds symbolize the sunrays or light paths that guide the dearly departed. Cosmos symbolize order, peace, and serenity. The birthstones for October are Opal and Tourmaline. Both stones offer a spectrum of different shades. The name “opal” originates from the Greek word opallios, which means “to see a change in color,” whereas the name “tourmaline” comes from the Sinhalese words tura mali, which translates to “stone of mixed colors.”

Use white sage to cleanse you area. Place an orange or black altar cloth, orange and black candles, and decorate the altar with apples, pomegranates, grapples, chrysanthemums, and marigolds. (whichever is available to you.) Place a heart shaped crystal and rose quartz crystal that has not been use on the altar to hold your spell. Burn Samhain incense. Use small jack-o’-lanterns to mark the quarters, placing an Element appropriate colored candle in each pumpkin. Add pictures of decease loves and ancestors to your altar. Cast the circle creating a safe place. Call the four archangels in each in each corner. Make sure you have a Journal ready. (I use the same journal every year to compare notes) Next do the Samhain blessing. Hold your crystal in your hand as your ancestors come in. Once the ritual is done, close your circle thank them for coming and use cedar sage to cleanse your space.
Use herbs or oils
2 1/4 parts rosemary
1 part frankincense
1 part cinnamon
1 part dragon’s blood
½ part sage
Pinch of sea salt.
Ancestors hear my voice, know my heart, I think of you at the season’s start, Descendant from your honorable tree,
I am a proud member of your human family, Come to me from beyond the veil, Share the wisdom that you entail,
Please bestow your gentle blessing, And accept these humble offering.

October 2021 is a 6 Universal Month, the number of responsibility and family. The 6 is truly a nurturing number, as it brings balance, forgiveness, and harmony.
Last month was a big month for change, movement and breaking out of our comfort zones. This month, we will be settling back into our stable routine, but perhaps bringing some of the changes we implement in September and making them a habit.
The focus will be on what matters most to you and taking steps to achieve your happiness. Under the energy of the 6, helping others and giving back may be what is important to you at this time. If this is the case, remember that you can nurture and assist, but cannot make someone grow or change. Do not get weighed down with the problems of others, as it will only hinder your progress. Should you feel bogged down, remember that 6 is the number for home and security, so treat your home as your sanctuary to recharge.
Monthly Horoscope-October 2021
Aries: This is a social time. Focus your attention on important relationships.
Taurus: Take an accounting of how much effort you are giving others. Make your health the priority.
Gemini: Time to embrace your creative side. Your playfulness will attract others to you.
Cancer: Focus on maintaining a strong family relationship to build a secure foundation.
Leo: Evaluate what is important to you and vocalize it, especially when it comes to your personal life.
Virgo: Financial matters are your focus but think things through. This is not the time to “make a quick buck.”
Libra: Embrace your independence and focus on yourself. It will benefit you long-term.
Scorpio: Listen to your intuition before making any major moves.
Sagittarius: New beginnings, whether personal or professional, will flourish this month.
Capricorn: One-on-one relationships bring stability, whether personal or professional.
Aquarius: Embracing new experiences and knowledge will benefit your career and personal life.
Pisces: Recognizing what makes you feel secure and safe will bring you peace.
