Moon in Aquarius - The Moon in Aquarius connects us to our community, reminds us that we are in this together. It asks us to make sure we walk our talk and integrate our philosophy with our politics. We abstract, communicate and work the crowd, but may be less intimate. The Moon in Aquarius expands our circles and offers the magic of collaboration: spirit and politics weave together. We can get farsighted now and need to stay aware of others' feelings. Let go of assumptions and find new, unusual allies. This is a transit dealing with facts, organizing, political issues, desire to save the world through social action, connecting with others in social situations, scientific pursuits, detachment and the need to come and go without restriction.
Aquarius Moon's monthly transit is a dramatic mood change. Where Capricorn values tradition and caution, Aquarius indicates anything new, innovative, different or unconventional. Extremes of behavior occur during this moon, especially extremes of optimism and pessimism. We may feel the need to be friendly and social but don't want to be too personal or go too deep. Aquarius Moon can bring us the feelings of wanting to be detached or rational rather than emotional, and will change only if it's logical to do so. Moon in Aquarius is the best time to work magick involving science, freedom, creative expression, problem-solving, extrasensory abilities, friendship, and the breaking of bad habits or unhealthy addictions. Healing rituals for ailments of the calves, ankles, or blood are also done this time, Those born under an Aquarius Moon sign are far sighted with a gentle stubbornness; they understand group dynamics and may be more aware in family, tribe, community than they are in their most intimate relations.

Yes, this is actually Samhain Day - yesterday was the celebration of Samhain Eve. As the last of the Autumn leaves were falling and the harvest gathered in the people would prepare for the storms of Winter. At this time the land starts to become bare of the colors of life. In your garden you need to be clearing away dead leaves, and cutting back plants for Winter. Protect or bring in delicate plants before the real chill sets in, and remove any remaining fruit before the first storms. Houseplants should not be too close to windows as at this time of the year they can easily chill. Consider feeding birds and wildlife, so long as you are sure you will continue to do so throughout the coming winter.
Wrap up warmly and take yourself out into the woods to notice the changes around you. Take some dried fruit and a little cider or wine as an offering. Seek out the oldest tree you can find (almost certainly the one with the widest trunk) and make your offering to the land. Then sit beneath it with your back to the trunk for a while. Close your eyes and visualize all the seasonal changes of Spring, Summer and Autumn which have led to this point. Then recall all the things in your life which have likewise started, grown and come to fruition this year. In your mind see the Goddess as the Wise One and the God as Hunter walking through the woods, and thank them for all that has come to you. When you are ready, open your eyes and seek out a token of the season to take home with you.
