SH2-308: The Dolphin-Head Nebula

Image Credit & Copyright: Nik Szymanek

Explanation: Blown by fast winds from a hot, massive star, this cosmic bubble is huge. Cataloged as Sharpless 2-308 it lies some 5,000 light-years away toward the constellation of the Big Dog (Canis Major) and covers slightly more of the sky than a Full Moon. That corresponds to a diameter of 60 light-years at its estimated distance. The massive star that created the bubble, a Wolf-Rayet star, is the bright one near the center of the nebula. Wolf-Rayet stars have over 20 times the mass of the Sun and are thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova phase of massive star evolution. Fast winds from this Wolf-Rayet star create the bubble-shaped nebula as they sweep up slower moving material from an earlier phase of evolution. The windblown nebula has an age of about 70,000 years. Relatively faint emission captured by narrowband filters in the deep image is dominated by the glow of ionized oxygen atoms mapped to a blue hue. Presenting a mostly harmless outline, SH2-308 is also known as The Dolphin-head Nebula.

To me the represents the Sun God from Ancient Egypt RA ( also know as From Wikipedia List of Solar Deities) and the Moon Goddess Luna (also known as  From Wikipedia List of Lunar Deities)

Fall has definitely started here in Illinois. I checked the temperature to know how to dress to take our 3 fur kids out. The Weather Channel app on my cellphone says it’s 51⁰F but feels like 46⁰F. I’m going to need more the my thin hoodie this morning which is fine with me. I like the cooler temperatures, watching the last flowers of the year bloom, farmers gathering their crops, leaves changing and falling as Gaia/Mother Earth gets ready for her winter slumber. There’s nothing in nature that I like more than a good snowstorm preferably when all my loves ones are home safe and sound. To me one of the best things in my life is to curl up on our enclosed front porch in my warm winter fleece shirt and pants and wrapped in a comforter with my cup of 1/2 coffee, 1/2 hot chocolate and just let my mind go wherever it wants too. In the summer I like to sit outside on the front stoop with either a cold soda or water or iced coffee early in the morning as light eats away at the darkness or as the darkness eats away at the light. This year because of moving to farm country I got to enjoy a still small fawn come with its mother watching over it to nibble on the grass or the older bucks and does coming to graze along the tree line on the hill. Listening to the sounds of frogs and other wildlife that enjoy living in a swampy environment. Seeing a Fox looking for food. Again I let my mind go wherever it wants too. I did not realize for a long time that when I sit outside at dusk and dawn when it is warmer or inside all toasty warm when it is cooler that this is a form of meditation. For some people that cannot quite their thinking to do what most people refer to as meditation this is a good alternative. I have found this type of random letting my mind ramble that I am able to communicate with and get answers to questions I have asked my Spirit Guides sometimes months ago. It is also a time for me to reflect on how I might change things about myself or decide what I want to accomplish during the day. Another reason I like winter is most of the things that bother my allergies go dormant for a few months. The biggest negative for me with the change of the seasons is the temperature fluctuation bring about bad fibromyalgia flares and my joints hurt more but this is all part of my body dealing with getting older and helping me to remember I am it is not a child anymore. Although I love letting my inner child come out for a while every day through coloring, our writing a silly story, or doing arts and crafts, while watching cartoons and still getting a good laugh out of most of them. SHHHH… don’t tell on me but this winter I plan on getting my fiancée, Big Dawg (he got the name when he did canine law enforcement training in his younger years…shoulder shrug) into a snowball fight as this man really needs to find his inner child. He is a warm, loving, and consider man but really needs to lighten up a bit. Remember this info is just between us. He doesn’t even like to give out anything to child for trick or treating…yes this year that is changing and I am giving out cute Halloween themed pencils. No candy as there are a few people every year that have to many negative nasties around them and/or to much negative energy inside of them and the aura that try to hurt children by putting needles, pins, pieces of not edible things into candy or whatever kind of edible they are passing out to unsuspecting children. Ok here I’m going to gray magic but I would love to have just one of the people to forget that they have poisoned the candy they are handing out and eat one themselves. This is the one Shabbat that I do a Justice spell, I wrote a few years ago, not aimed at one specific person but at humanity as a whole through out the USA. What the intention of the spell is that the person get equal negative energy or negative whatever they have put out towards another person or persons. That they mean or bad person gets no more but no less than they put out or did to someone else. That spell will be going up today on witchesofthecraft.com What is your favorite season and why? Do you remember to embrace your inner child? If you do not please try it, it make living life as an adult so much more fun. If you allow your inner child out, how do you do it? I am really looking for more ways to let mine out. I am anxiously awaiting the first wet snow to fall to make a snowman and snow angels. A tidbit about my sister Lady Silver Sage likes the season of Fall or Autumn the best out of the four.

19 October Birthday Horoscope

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS  ON OCTOBER 19, you are a person who is flexible and open-minded. You have no trouble making friends as you are sensitive to others and their needs. However, being the friendly person that you are can sometimes be misunderstood and get you into some minor disagreements.

You’re impartial but have the ability to see both sides of a situation and are able to compromise. Often times, you are the center of attention. It’s a natural and magnetic October 19th birthday personality trait that you have. This can cause jealousy and envy among your peers.

If today is your birthday you like being around other people, however, you are secure being your own best friend. You seem to express yourself well or so say your business associates, family, and friends. They appreciate your energy, loyalty, and astuteness.

Additionally, the 19th October birthday horoscope foretells that you are dependable and practical. You can pick apart a situation and analyze it. This could come in handy for your profession.

Your career choice could be based on how you feel about performing certain tasks. If you feel good about helping someone, then maybe social work is a field suited to a October 19 Libra birth day person. You, in addition, could be good as a therapist or a minister.

Usually caring professions are sought after by those with your gifts of attracting people. More often than not, those people have problems. They come to you for advice anyway so you may as well get paid for it.

As an alternative profession, you enjoy politics and find that changing things for the better gives you great rewards at the end of the day. You seek, in your own way, to make things better for those less fortunate. The October 19 zodiac birthday individuals have a tendency to be dedicated to linking people with programs that may advance their lives.

In life, you may find that it has its share of ups and downs. You have found your own way of dealing with those little setbacks or stumbling blocks. The October 19 birthday astrology analysis shows that you probably have the wisdom to know that knowledge comes with trial and error. If you don’t learn from your mistakes, then you end up repeating them.

When it comes to risking your money, you learn fast. Nonetheless, sometimes in life, you may have to take a gamble in order to get ahead. With a Libra born today, you can rest assured that your money is safe.

But the October 19 birthday personality also take their health for granted. Being young and active this is not so bad as you tend to ward off diseases and minor illnesses without much effort. However, as you get on in age, this could become a problem. Age has a way of showing up in many places mainly around the stomach and hips. You could take better care of yourself by eating a healthier diet and taking walks at least 3 times a week.

The 19 October birthday meanings also show that you are well-liked. You are smart, sensitive and practical. As a friend, you are dedicated and loyal. Some people are envious of your attention-getting magnetic force.

As a young Libra, staying active was easy but not so much as you get older. However, you can maintain a fit lifestyle by walking at least a few times a week or biking. Since you prefer to be around people, take a friend. It will make the time go by much faster and it won’t seem like exercise. Professionally, you’d make a great therapist or politician as you find that helping people is highly rewarding.

All Signs

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” (Cicero said this 2000 years ago.) This is timely because it’s Thanksgiving in Canada! The perfect time to remind ourselves why we can be grateful. Let’s look at the cycles of lucky Jupiter, to identify the opportunities we have now and for the rest of the year. Jupiter takes 12 years to go through all the 12 signs, staying in each sign for a year. This year, Jupiter is in Aquarius (with the exception of May, June and July when it slipped into Pisces). Jupiter was last in Aquarius in 2009. The next time it will be in Aquarius is 2033. Jupiter represents expansion, wealth, wisdom and joy. (Some called Jupiter Jove, hence the word jovial.) So, what is your good fortune for this year? Read on MacDuff!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This year, Jupiter is in your House of Friendships, which is good news because Jupiter is constantly energizing and expanding your relations with friends as well as groups and organizations. This is why you are and will continue to be more active with friends. It’s also why you will benefit friends and they will benefit and help you. (Bonus!) Likewise, in your dealings with organizations, this year, you might take a leadership role or be more active in networking. Jupiter will also fill you with an urge to fulfill your dreams and goals. You might earn more money from a business or career. Oh yeah, we like Jupiter!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Once every 12 years, lucky Jupiter crosses the top of your chart, making you look successful in the eyes of others. This is happening this year! Generally, the reason for this is you are enjoying good fortune in your profession and career. Your social status and reputation are shining. You might get a promotion at work. Public recognition will earn you the respect of your peers. You might have a chance to change your field of work to medicine and healing, the law, higher education or travel. Exciting work-related travel will broaden your world. The key to success is to be honest and generous. Enjoy your dazzling limelight this year!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be grateful that you can expand your world through travel and chance to learn about different cultures and people with diverse backgrounds. You will learn about the power of advertising and marketing and the use of multimedia. Your work or your business might benefit through foreign interests and other cultures. Educational and travel opportunities will come your way. This year you are learning real and useful information. Writing will flow more easily and authors will get favourable feedback. You are blessed with a smorgasbord of new ideas, opportunities to travel and personal development through human potential movements. Ah yes, your cup is full.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This year Jupiter is making it easy for you to get help and assistance from others. For example, it’s a strong time to borrow money or get a loan or a mortgage because doors will open for you. You might get benefits through taxes, shared resources, inheritances and jointly-held property. These windfalls could lead to a new home or a new car – something that makes you happy. In turn, you will be in a better position to help loved ones. Because these benefits ease tension, and also because success is sexy, many of you will enjoy a more passionate sex life. (Wow.) Who knew?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This year, Jupiter is opposite your sign – something that happens only once every 12 years. This boosts your ability to make a great impression on your public this year. You will win their approval! You will also enjoy happier relations with spouses, partners and close friends. Financial benefits might come to you through partnerships. (Jupiter is wealth.) This is a classic time for a strong mutual support between you and a partner – hence, a strong mutual appreciation of each other. Good publicity and increased popularity are also likely. (Good year to sign contracts.) You will be grateful for the benefits of your close relationships and what a help they are to you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The benefits you’re receiving this year from Jupiter are practical and meaningful. For starters, this year you can improve your health. This could happen in a variety of ways but the end result will be a positive one. During this year, you can also improve your job. You can improve your existing job, or get a better job. Your nasty boss will be transferred to Timbuktu. Note: If you are unhappy in your job – be confident that you can get a better job because this is your best chance in over a decade to do so. For some, this might sound minor but it isn’t – you will receive rewarding enjoyment through pets this year. This can be precious and special. Use these blessings to your advantage!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This year Jupiter has a twofold influence that is slightly contradictory. It makes this year flow easily for you; and promote your health and feelings of well-being. It’s a good year for financial matters (Jupiter is wealth); and it promotes travel! However, this year, Jupiter is sitting in the most playful part of your chart, thereby encouraging your creative self-expression. That’s why you have the courage to be who you are without fear or apology. Relations with kids will be excellent and rewarding. It’s a fabulous year for a vacation. It’s a great year for romance. It’s also a year that is rich in opportunities for personal growth and increased wisdom. You really are a winner!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This year, Jupiter will give tremendous support and rewards to everything related to your home, family and personal life. You will find ways to make where you live more attractive. You might redecorate or renovate. Some of you will rent something different that is better or preferable. Others will buy something that you like better. Whatever the case, you will improve your living arrangement this year – no question. And you will be happier where you live! In the same way, relationships with family members will improve and everyone will be more generous to each other. You will welcome this chance to put down roots and feel a source of support and comfort in your life. Nicely done!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Lucky Jupiter is your ruler, which is why you’re an optimist. Because Jupiter rules foreign countries, you are also the traveller of the zodiac. The placement of Jupiter this year is critical because more than any other sign, you need physical activity (especially outdoors) and a positive attitude. These are survival issues for you. You can’t be cooped up! You can’t be discouraged! Fortunately, lucky Jupiter is going through the part of your house that affects your everyday activity and your daily outlook on life. This boots your positive thinking – every day! It increases your daily contacts with others. It brings travel opportunities and encourages you to make big plans! (Lucky you.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your relationship with Jupiter this year is most fortunate! Jupiter is the planet associated with wealth, expansion and increase; and this year, Jupiter is sitting in your House of Money! In the words of Eric Idle, “Say no more!” This is your year to get richer! You might get a raise. You might get a better paying job. You might inherit. Something will happen that makes you feel richer. (You might even buy something special that makes you feel richer.) Lady Luck is with you this year and abundance will rain on you! Of course, wealth is relative. Money and stuff are wealth. Spending less than you earn is wealth. Health is wealth. Time is wealth. A loving relationship is wealth. Wealth is having few wants.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This year, Jupiter is in your sign. The last time this happened was 2009; the next time it will occur will be 2033. This is a fortunate year for you because Jupiter is expanding your world and helping you to develop wisdom, courage and self-confidence. New ideas will abound! Your priorities will shift. This year is the beginning a new 12-year cycle of personal growth. (Time to let out another pleat in the shower curtain?) Seriously, this is major! People and resources will be attracted to you. Take advantage of this! It’s time to give up childish prejudices and get in touch with deeper dimensions and start to work toward being the best that you can be. Why be less? Count your blessings!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This year, lucky Jupiter is hiding in your chart to make its debut in your sign in 2022. It briefly visited Pisces in May, June and July this year but that was just a dress rehearsal. Jupiter is associated with expansion, wisdom, belief systems, higher education, publishing, jurisprudence and whatever it is that binds societies together. Meanwhile, the place where it is hiding in your chart is all about your subconscious and your spirituality. This year you are on a quest to discover what is meaningful in your life. You will receive recognition next year. This year is time to reflect. Act on your urge to help others by volunteering or helping daily contacts. Therapy and spiritual healing can be profound.

The Origins of Halloween by Silver RavenWolf

Harvest Moon, velvet sky, pumpkins glowing, children laughing, costumes, candy, scary stories—just where did this autumn gaiety begin? Let’s look through those cobwebby corridors of time to unearth the exciting genealogy of the American Celebration we call Halloween!

Nothing is ever as simple as it seems—especially when dealing with history. Too often events and circumstances of our past were written or re-written by people who, for whatever reason, operated under an agenda, or simply wanted history to reflect how it should have been, rather than how it was. How, then, do we determine what is fact and what is fiction? In some cases, we can’t. In other situations, we dig.

The Celts

Many historians feel that the greatest strength in the Celtic people lies in their collective mythos. Wading through the romanticism to find unmodified information can prove a tricky endeavor. The earliest archaeological evidence we have of the Celts rest in France and Western Germany.  The Celtic people moved into Spain, Britain, and Switzerland between the fifth and first century BCE. They even ransacked Rome in 390 BCE.

The Celtic peoples celebrated four festivals called fire festivals–commonly know today as Samhain, Oimelc (Imbolc), Beltane, and Lughnasadh. Samhain (pronounced sow-in, sow rhymes with now) was the first and foremost a harvest festival relating to animal husbandry and preparations for the winter months. Fire is an element of cleaning, a vehicle of eradication, so it is not unlikely that fire would work itself into any type of religious celebration. Fire among the ancient peoples often represented an aspect of the divine.

What does the word Samhain mean? Well, we know what it doesn’t mean. There is no archeological or literary evidence of a Celtic god by the name of Samhain. This little slip of fact appears to have begum in the 1700s and continues in some misinformed publications today. The word Samhain actually means “summers end”.

So, where did this Lord of the Dead thing come in? Over time, Samhain took on a religious significance through ministrations of the Druids (the clergy of the Celt’s). Legends indicate that on Samhain all the hearth fires in Ireland were doused and then lit again from a central fire maintained by the Druids at Tlachtga. To the Celts, Samhain was a turning point from light into darkness, and it was thought that this break or fissure created easier access to their land of the dead, Tir nan Og.

The Druids

We need to know a little bit about the Druids to continue with our history of Halloween. The Druids were versed in all learning and were considered to have the gift of prophecy. They functioned as judge, ambassadors, healers, and religious leaders. The Druids first named the holiday Samhain.

 Feast of the Dead

As the Celtic religious system solidified so did the beliefs of the Celts concerning the dead—as has occurred in all religions, before and after the Celts. Since the turning points of the year were considered fissures in time and space, the Celts believe that the dead they loved so dearly could travel through time and space and return from Tir nan Og to visit them. The custom of leaving food at the table (the birth part of the treat part of trick-or-treat) was a gesture of welcome to the departed. From these visits came the belief that those who had gone beyond the land of the living could provide information on past or future events. This is how divination became associated with Samhain.

The Celts did not believe in devils or demons, but they did believe in the Fairy Folk, whom they thought inhabited the land of the dead (the land in-between). Fairies were thought to be resentful of humankind for taking over their land. Because time and space could be conquered on Samhain, fairies were said to roam countryside creating mischief and kidnapping a human or two now and then—just for fun, you understand.—except the humans never came back. Here then is the root of the scary stuff associated with Halloween. The mischief, of course, was caused by living humans, and accepted by the Celts as a psychological release before the onset of winter gloom—though I doubt they would explain it in those terms.

Is it odd, gross, or unusual that a group of people should set aside a day for the dead? Nope. Different cultures and religions have followed such a practice for centuries. Let’s get on our broom again and check out Rome and its contributions to Halloween.

Is it odd, gross, or unusual that a group of people should set aside a day for the dead? Nope. Different cultures and religions have followed such a practice for centuries. Let’s get on our broom again and check out Rome and its contributions to Halloween.

A Fly-BY of Ancient Rome

Rome had the habit of changing rulers as many times as you empty the lint trap in your dryer. Between 14 and 37 CE, Christianity had begun its rise in Rome. By 41 CE, Claudius had distinguished himself with the conquest of Britain. The Romans also had a harvest festival, so the Celts didn’t have much trouble blending the two holidays together after they came into contact with the Romans. It was around 314 CE when Constantine the Great declared the Roman Empire to be Christian, and the fate of Samhain and Druids was sealed.

 The Advent of Christianity

By the fourth and fifth centuries , Celtic Christianity had oozed into Ireland. St. Patrick has his hands full, and here is where the kettle starts to boil. At, first, the Pagans openly welcomed Christianity, but as Christianity filtered into the Celtic system, church officials had a few problems—mainly the Celtics didn’t want up their holidays or folk practices. The people were not willing to throw out traditions that were ingrained into their social structure. If you can’t get someone to completely change, what do you do? Compromise. And that’s exactly what happened. Samhain was changed to All Hollow’s Eve. To make the Pagan peoples adhere more closely to this new religion of Christianity, the clergy of the day taught the peasants that fairies were really demons and devils (remember, a concept totally unknown to Celtic belief or history) and their beloved dead were horrid ghosts and ghouls. The early Christian erroneously associated the Celtic land of the dead with the Christian concept of Hell.

To help the belief in Christianity along, Druids priestess were systematically murdered. Early Christians also taught the area peasants that their Lord of the Underworld was in fact Satan, which is ridiculous, as the two mythos don’t have anything in common. It appears that Christians misunderstood what the word Samhain meant: because the peasants use this celebration to honor the dead, Christians assumed that Samhain was the incorrect pronunciation of a Pagan deity in the Bible, recorded as Samuel, from the Semitic Sammael, meaning God of the under world.

The Witches

So far, we’ve talked about the land of the dead, how the early Christians managed to superimpose Satan onto Samhain, and how fairies got zapped into demons, but there has been no mention of Witches, commonly associated in our time with Halloween. Where did Witches come from?

During the Dark Ages, the Church sought to eradicate the Pagans and wise women from the countryside so that the church could amass both power and property. First, they had to devalue women because women kept the holy days, trained the children, and provided the cohesive socialization of the culture, thus women held the power to shape society. The church taught, among other things, that women had no souls. Once this teaching had occurred, it was only a small step to make them inhuman, and the Church was able to incite the superstitious populace.

The Celtic women were the strong hold of the family environment, and although the Celts accepted Christianity at first, they did not want to give up their family traditions or their lifestyle. The Church was not into free thinking—therefore anything that did not follow the church dictates was evil. Hence, the Witches (really the women) became evil. Since Samhain was a primary festival of the Celts and the Church had already determined that Samhain was evil, the association between Witches and Halloween was born.

All Saints’ Day / All Hallow’s EVE / Halloween

All Saints’ Day and All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) were first introduced in the seventh century CE. All Saints’ Day was originally celebrated in the spring. The date was changed to November 1 to supplant Pagan beliefs because those pesky Pagans just refused to cough up their original Samhain. The day was to honor God and all his saints, known and unknown. All Saints’ Day later became Hallowmass, a mass to honor the dead. The Eve of All Hallow’s Day, October 31, became All Hallow’s Eve, which evolved into the word Hallowe’en. Although the church wished this time to be one of somber prayer and quite custom, the Celtics continued their customary bonfires and fortune telling.

All Souls’ Day is a bit different. This festival falls on November 2, a day to offer prayers and alms to assist the souls of those departed that manage to get stuck in purgatory, an in-between place that is neither heaven nor hell. Over the succeeding centuries, Halloween, like Christmas, picked up various customs and discarded others, depending on the complex socialization of the times and religious dictates.

Halloween Comes to America

Our first inkling of Halloween coming to America revolves not around a specific set of people (many indicate the Irish) but with William Penn’s motley collection of refugees from Europe. In 1663, Penn wrote a promotional tract about the Americans. As a result, fifty ships dropped the anchors in the Delaware River. They discharged persecuted souls from England, Ireland, Wales, and the Rhineland (now Germany). Collectively, the Germans and Irish shared Celtic heritage. Therefore many of the folk customs resonated together—including Halloween.

From 1684 through 1930, Halloween was more a time for tricking rather than for treating. Many of the tricks the German and Irish communities became universal, such as overturning outhouses, dismantling a wagon and putting it back together on top of a house or barn, and tying cows to church bells. The tricks often served as social function, such as mildly chastising a neighbor who exhibited antisocial behavior.

By 1910, several American manufactures were making or importing party products just for the American holiday Halloween. From noisemakers to costumes, a new holiday meant new business and an opportunity to make money.

The drawback to the new holiday came in the form of the “declared” Mischief Night, Goblin Night, or Devil’s night on October 30. Minor offenses, such as trying several garbage cans together and hanging them from a light pole, soaping windows with lard, and later, bars of hand soap, abounded. As the pranks grew to vandalism shopkeepers would bribe youngsters to ward off destruction of their property.

In an effort to stop the criminal behavior, the Boy Scouts, in conjunction with local town councils, cities, boroughs, instituted the custom of Trick-or-Treat night to help keep youngsters from naughty practices. By the 1930s the custom of trick-or-treating was well entrenched in our American culture. Halloween, like Christmas, became a holiday for children, and parents strove to make the holiday as much fun as possible for the enjoyment of their youngsters.

During he 1950s. ’60s, and ’70s our American Halloween stayed primarily the same, but in the ’70s and ’80s, with a recession coupled by a candy scare, groups and organizations once again sought to find appropriate avenues to make Halloween safe for America’s children. Halloween practices extended through the entire month of October. Haunted houses, parties, hay rides, plays, story hours, and numerous other events were held throughout the month.

In the mid-to-late 1990s certain sects of the Protestant Christian church declared war on Halloween. using the same erroneous propaganda cultivated hundreds of years ago. Other groups size Halloween for their own political agendas—hosting haunted houses showing aborted babies, drug addicts, and other modern day violent situations. This did not go over well, as the holiday had become an event primarily for children, not adult political issues. Radical Christian groups said that the holiday was Satanic—which, as we’ve seen from our research, is a bizarre and fantastic claim, based on misinformation, politicking, personal agendas and fear. With America’s policy of separation of church and state the battle for destroying Halloween in the United States is an uphill battle.

The original Samhain marked the the close of the agriculture season and functional third harvest festival. In America, Halloween has become the first holiday in our end-of-year rush for partied gaiety. Our Halloween functions as the opening of the three-month-long celebratory fest that includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, and Chanukkah, and ends with the popular American New Year.

As our children crave pumpkins with delightful chatter, adults find solace in a night when they can be whatever they want to be. We have little doubt about the joy this holiday bring to the American people. I am sure we will forever love the haunted house, the harvest Moon, the thrills and chills of a well-wrought tale—and, of course, the deliciously scary things that go EEEEK! in the night.

 Harvest Moon, velvet sky, pumpkins glowing, children laughing, costumes, candy, scary stories—just where did this autumn gaiety begin? Let’s look through those cobwebby corridors of time to unearth the exciting genealogy of the American Celebration we call Halloween!

Nothing is ever as simple as it seems—especially when dealing with history. Too often events and circumstances of our past were written or re-written by people who, for whatever reason, operated under an agenda, or simply wanted history to reflect how it should have been, rather than how it was. How, then, do we determine what is fact and what is fiction? In some cases, we can’t. In other situations, we dig.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have a lot of energy to work today. In fact, you’re so enthusiastic, you will probably start to delegate and give orders to others. Easy does it because they might resent this. Ideally, you will work best if you are on your own.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you need to be physically active, which is why physical, outdoor sports will appeal. If these activities are competitive – so much the better because you’re keen to win! This energy can also be channeled into working with kids. Romantically, you might initiate something exciting and different! Woot!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A parent or older family member might have something to say today. Of course, you have strong views as well. Use your skilful means to work in cooperation with others to make improvements at home. This can be done if you don’t try to run things. Easy does it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are super enthusiastic today, which is why you will easily inspire others to do your bidding. This is a great day for teachers, salespeople or anyone who wants to convince or persuade others to agree with their ideas. Spontaneous short trips will delight. You definitely have something to say!

You’re full of moneymaking ideas that you might want to initiate today. If these are new ideas, wait until Mercury retrograde is over. (Be smart.) Nevertheless, you can still generate enthusiasm and excitement for your plans. You’re ready to work hard to earn money today – and spend it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today Mars is lined up with the Sun in your sign, which makes you ready to tackle something new! You want to begin something. You are also ready to compete with anyone. You want the independence to do your own thing because you don’t want anyone bossing you around. Definitely!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Some behind-the-scenes ideas make you excited today. Quite likely, this excitement will be obvious if you’re talking to others. Nevertheless, with Venus in your sign, you will present yourself with diplomacy and charm, even though you’re on a mission!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Relations with friends and groups are upbeat and energetic today! In particular, you will love to be active in physical sports, especially in a competition. (You want to win!) This same high energy will be apparent in meetings with others. Take it easy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your ambition is aroused today, which means you intend to achieve something. It’s okay to go after what you want; but make sure you don’t alienate bosses and important people. You will need these people, so make the effort to give them respect. (Be smart.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects today because you might go overboard due to the fact that you’re super enthusiastic. Instead, channel this energy into making travel plans, or perhaps learning or studying something new. Your best option is outdoors physical activity! Being desk bound is not your best choice today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ll have no trouble defending your own best interests in discussions about inheritances, wills and shared property today. (That’s putting it mildly.) That’s because today you are gung-ho to make a statement, especially with partners and close friends. “Now hear this! Now hear this!”
