Ancient Origins of Halloween:
Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.
This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
Spiritual research has revealed that Halloween is a festival that can create negative energies, generated by entities and people who delve into spiritual practices without understanding what they are dealing with, hence inviting negative energies and spirits into there live, whose objective is to generate and spread their black negative energy in society. Once the “veil” has been pierced and a portal opened it is extremely difficult, sometimes impossible to close.
It’s important to note that once the “veil” to the other side is lifted you may not like what you find or expect to find that is why it’s important to stay away from “playing” with Ouija boards, spell casting, ghost hunting, pendulums,, anything of a psychic or paranormal nature,
Once the “door” is open “anything” or anyone can enter and it could be very difficult if not impossible to get whatever comes in to leave. Also take into consideration that any spell that is cast or affirmed towards another person wit intent WILL return BACK to the person who invoked it, ten fold or more.
Increased ghost activity and nightmares during Halloween:
In places where Halloween is celebrated, the activity of ghosts increases by 30%. Due to the increased activity of ghosts and the negative vibrations created by the various costumes and decorations, negative energy in the environment goes up considerably on the evening/night of 31st October, i.e. the time Halloween is celebrated. This is a the heightened effect of negative energies continues for 4 weeks after Halloween. The effect then slowly subsides over a 6 month period.
Even during natural events such as eclipses, full moon and new moon there is an increased activity of ghosts. However this is due to natural phenomena. In the case of Halloween, the increase in the activity of ghosts is purely man made.
Spiritual protection is imperative during Halloween and the month following, in order to prevent any type of “attachment” or possession by Earthbound entities or dark forces. Sage is one of the most commonly used forms of protection, however in extreme cases, it provides little in terms of a spiritual shield. It’s similar to wearing a sweater in sub-zero temperatures. The best tools for iron-cad protection are the colors silver and violet. Silver is the shield and violet is the highest vibration in the color spectrum that turns the negative into the positive. In addition to this Cinnamon incense should be used (earthbound don’t like the smell) and frankincense/myrrh to raise the energy for positive spirits to come in. As an extra precaution, the 23rd psalm and the prayer card for Archangel Michael will seal the deal/ These ARE the strongest protection tools around today, if you want to stay free of negative attacks.
Halloween can be fun but to delve into the “other side” or invoking an entity comes with a price that many don’t realize until it is too late. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
In Scorpio Jupiter highlights, secret enemies, transformation, regeneration, the past, the occult, all things hidden sex,, past lives, joint financial partnerships, legacies, surgery, cruelty, research, reproductive organs, tyrants, Washington D.C., the color red, to name just a few things. Therefore, Jupiter in this sign will magnify all of the above and also the characteristics of the house in which it resides, based on an individuals Solar and Natal chart.

BEYOND THE DEATH EXPERIENCE
Scorpio rules the afterlife, past lives an reincarnation therefore interest in these topics will be highlighted more than usual during the Jupiter in Scorpio transit. Interest in the paranormal, the esoteric realm, on a much deeper lvl than ghost hunting and stereotypes presented in horror movies, will step into the forefront. Reading the book Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr Brian Weiss (himself a Scorpio) will help to gain greater understanding of this subject. The eternal questions, “who am I? “, Why is my life like this?”, “Why is this happening?”, will seem to be an important issue on the mind of many. Research (Scorpio) and understanding into the fact that are our bodies our physical bodies are finite, but atoms and energy never die, that the Soul continues beyond the death (Scorpio) experience, may well provide tangible proof and evidence, during this twelve month cycle.
Some people may even decide to explore out-of-body experiences, delving into other realms and dimensions to see what they discover and how it impacts their everyday existence. This cycle is also perfect for a retreat, to rejuvenate and regenerate overall well-being from inside out.
It is important to remember that Scorpio is the Sign of the Scorpion and Phoenix, that was consumed by the fire of the Sun and arose again from its own ashes. One of the most negative side of Scorpio is that of self-destruction and destruction without hindsight, its “sting” lethal to anyone to anyone who”crosses” its path the wrong way. Scorpio’s can harbor lingering resentment for indefinite periods of time and wait for the right moment to strike. An evolved Scorpio will rise above this tendency and become extremely spiritually aware and help others to turn their lives around.
During the Jupiter in Scorpio transit, the choices available are clear. Rise to the heights of success and positive demonstration of power, or self-destruction in a self-imposed pile of disaster, then having to rebuild from scratch. People with their Rising Sign, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Scorpio will feel this transit the most. Pluto an Mars are the ruling planets of Scorpio.
This, for sure will be one of the most eventful and interesting transits out of all the signs Jupiter has been in so far, not only on a personal level but a universal level too. Jupiter was in Scorpio in 2007, so look back and remember what occurred during this time.
Jupiter rules the truth and in Scorpio may well expose some dark, hidden deeply disturbing secrets, connected to financial dealings, sex and power, on a personal and universal level.
Therefore, it is wise to take note, that this is a cycle in which people will try to f..ck up your life or you’ll try to f..ck up theirs first! The next twelve months will definitely be the year of Money, Sex, Power, What’s Your Karma?” So, watch you back!
