October’s Monthly Insight
By Kimberly Hastings October 1, 2020
The month of October comes from the Latin, Octo, meaning eight, as there were originally only 10 months on the Roman calendar. The Anglo-Saxons called this month Wintirfyllith, meaning “Winter Fullness.” The major holiday this month is Halloween, which originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain. This was a time were people would light bonfires and wear costumes in order to keep ghosts at bay. It has evolved into a day for carving pumpkins and trick-or-treating. Halloween is also known as All Hallows Eve, the evening before All Saint’s Day.
Libra rules October until the 21st until Scorpio takes over on October 22nd. Libra, being the Balance Scales, brings calm and rational energy, especially when dealing with difficult situations. Scorpio, on the other hand, will encourage us to express our feelings freely. October’s birth flower is the Calendula, a flower that is not only beautiful but useful for easing upset stomachs and skin irritations. This month’s birthstones are the tourmaline and opal. In addition to being a wonderful protection stone, tourmaline promoted self-confidence and attracts compassion and tolerance. Opal is great to stimulate creativity and helps you to express yourself.
Spiritual Uplifts’ Magical Moon for October
Lynn Pritchard October 1, 2020
This year October’s full moon is called the “Hunter’s Moon.” This was named many moons ago because it was a time where everything was cleared from the trees, making it easier for hunters to see their prey.
Samhain is a pagan religious festival originating from an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition. In modern times, Samhain (a Gaelic word pronounced “sow-win”) is usually celebrated from October 31 to November 1 to welcome in the harvest and usher in “the dark half of the year.” Celebrants believe that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world break down during Samhain, allowing more interaction between humans and denizens of the Otherworld. You can do you ritual on the full moon or Halloween

Use an orange or black altar cloth, orange, and black candles, and decorate the altar with apples, pomegranates, chrysanthemums, and marigolds. You can add pictures of decease relatives or ancestors that you would like to contact. Burn Samhain incense. Use small jack-o’-lanterns to mark the quarters, placing an Element appropriate colored candle in each pumpkin. Cast the circle creating a safe place. Call the four archangels in each corner: south, north, east, west. Go to the western Quarter and make an Invoking pentagram with the athamé to open the gate. Then evoke the Dead by saying:

October 2020 is a five Universal Month, the number of transitions and movement. This month do not be surprised to find yourself feeling restless and seeking changes in your life. With 2020 being a 4 Universal Year, you may be feeling overworked and looking to shake things up. Should you have the urge to make drastic changes, I urge you to first take a step back and reflect on what you have accomplished so far. If you made a vision board this year, take a moment to review. You will be amazed at all you have accomplished, keeping you motivated, and moving forward.
However, we must keep in mind that change is not always a negative experience. We will not be able to evolve into our best selves if we do not embrace growth. Sometimes we need a major change to move forward in our lives. Also, a change can help breathe new energy into a situation. For example, we can become bored if we perform the same exercise routine every time we hit the gym. Taking a new class such as cycle or Zumba can help reinvigorate you and keep you on track with your goals.
