Known for its spooky, scary-faced pumpkins, goofy costumes, and endless amounts of candy, it’s no doubt has this holiday has come to be one of the most fun, versatile and creative of them all for people of all ages. However, Halloween wasn’t always that way. In fact, many of the traditions of Halloween today are believed to be derived from an old Celtic holiday known as Samhain. And while these two events are commonly referred to as the same celebration, Halloween and Samhain are actually not the same and are considered to be miles apart in their traditions and practices.

In this article, we’re going to go over everything having to do with Samhain and Halloween. We’re going to cover their correspondences, history, origin, and key differences to give you better insight into these beautiful October celebrations and how you can honor them each in their own way.

As we welcome in the first official month of flannels, hot cocoa, and cool autumn nights, we also make way for a creative and transformative month of new beginnings as we begin to slow down and settle into a calmer period in our lives. With that said, this month, we’ll kick off October in the sign of the social and charming Libra. With this focused and determined air sign guiding the way through the month, it’s going to turn our attention towards creating balance in our lives. Because of this, Libra’s independent energy will have us majorly examining our boundaries in order to find our place of perfect stability, especially in our relationships. This, alongside the planet of love, Venus, transitioning into Sagittarius within the first week of the month, will encourage us to open up more to others and develop deeper romantic connections, which will linger as one of the biggest themes this month.
Aside from this, while October is overall expected to bring a more laid-back energy than the past couple of months we’ve had, all signs are still going to experience some challenges as we work through Mercury retrograde yet again, as it is notorious for stirring up delays and miscommunication. However, contrary to popular belief, Mercury’s influence isn’t all bad. In fact, because of Mercury retrograde, we will also get a chance to re-examine things from our past this month and finally cut cords to them to find our true happiness. This, above all else, will be a huge period of rebirth and renewal for many of the signs and will help them to truly call back their divine power. Following this, we will then hit the Scorpio season on the 23rd of this month, where this energy is bound to take even more of a mischievous and self-righteous turn, so get ready for some major personal power to take the spotlight towards the end of the month.
Above all else, this will be a powerful month for learning patience, finding closure from the past, and moving forward once and for all. But to give you some insight into what you can expect to feel personally, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout the month of October and how you can truly make the most of it.

It’s yet again the transformative, emotional, and highly energetic time of the year, where we welcome in the notorious Mercury retrograde. Despite the fact that Mercury retrograde is an occurrence that happens multiple times each year, it never seems to fail to stir up the same old feelings of needing to bunker down and lie low for a few weeks. This is because, unlike planetary retrogrades, Mercury’s reversed influence can make our lives do a complete 180-degree turn, which can cause some difficulties in our communication, career development, and relationships.
However, while Mercury retrograde tends to get a bad rep for its ability to completely change our lives, it can also be an excellent time to complete tasks, work on creative projects, as well as do some inner workings. With that said, today, we’re going to talk all about Mercury retrograde, what it is, and what you should and should not do during it.

As we transition out of the warm nights of August, we steadily begin making our way through the abundant month of September, welcoming with it the many transitional properties of the autumn season. However, September isn’t just a welcoming period for the autumn itself, but for the second of the three harvest festivals of the Wheel of the Year, known as Mabon. Mabon, also known as the autumn equinox, is the sabbat that marks the time of which day and night are equal, when we gather our crops once more and enjoy the last bit of warmth before the cooler months take over. On a deeper level, Mabon also has many powerful energetic transitions taking place, which can push us to seek change, deeper spiritual connections, and inner wisdom as we approach one of the most symbolic days of the year.
With so much going on energetically, it can be hard to know the best ways to celebrate the energy of the season and fully welcome it into your space. So to help you out, in this article, we're going to go over everything having to do with the divine autumnal sabbat of Mabon.

As we welcome in the cooling harvest month of September, we make way for a transformative period of energetic change as we work to create better balance in our lives. We kick off this autumn month in the sign of the practical and goal-oriented Virgo, shifting our focus towards progression on our goals. This will provide the signs with some initial direction and clarity, which will help us to start the month feeling positive and rejuvenated. However, Mercury, the planet of communication and knowledge, will also be lurking in the background this month as it prepares to go retrograde for the third and final time this year, pushing us to do some inner reflection as we begin to work through stirred emotions. This could also bring about mental fog, miscommunication, and misunderstandings with partners, coworkers, and loved ones, so be prepared for some potential rough patches throughout the month.
Towards the end of September, on the 23rd, we will then shift into the partnership-focused Zodiac sign of the Libra, which will turn our attention towards family, friends, and community as we continue to grow and strengthen relationships as well as our own independence. We will also reach the Autumn Equinox the day before this, on September 22nd, which is considered to be a truly divine time of balance, inner reflection, growth, and gratitude as we prepare for yet another change of season into a calmer, more stagnant time of the year. This is also the time of which the veil between our world and the spirit world is growing increasingly thin, upping our intuitive abilities and connection to the other side. For this reason, be prepared for some deeper spiritual movements to occur this day, as it is an incredibly significant time of year for magical workings.

The crisp fall days of flannels, warm apple cider, and cozy nights by the fire are finally upon us once again as we steadily make our way into autumn. Autumn is a beautiful and abundant time of reaping what we have sown with bountiful celebration as we shift our focus into slowing down during the colder half of the year. Spiritually, it is a powerful time of self-reflection, letting go, and transition as the veil between worlds grows thin, making our magic stronger than ever. Because of this, doing what we can to welcome in and honor this energy is essential to honor it and truly make the most of it, as well as enhance our spells and rituals. And what better way to do that than with setting up our own autumn altar?
So for today, we wanted to go over one of our favorite ways to decorate your own altar to welcome in autumn, as well as a few product recommendations to help you do just that. So, without further ado, here’s our quick guide to setting up an autumn altar to truly make the most of the powerful energy of the season.

As we welcome in the warm month of August, we kick off the birthday season of the mighty lion sign, Leo, preparing us for an inspired, confident, and roaring month of creativity and opportunity. Be prepared for some major inspiration in your creative endeavors, as well as a boost in your personal power, as these are what this glamorous fire sign is all about. But, aside from the influence of the daring Leo, we will also be welcoming in some other rambunctious energy this month with the retrograde of 4 planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus), which is likely to leave the energy in the air a little chaotic and unpredictable. We may find ourselves in a bit of a mental fog as we revisit energies, problems, and people of the past and must tread very carefully through each of them.
Aside from this, August will also be bringing the Lionsgate Portal, which will be coinciding with the new moon on August 8th. This is a powerful day of cosmic opportunity that only comes once a year as we connect with higher frequencies and move into alignment with our divine selves. It is also a very lucky day for manifestation and abundance work, so get ready for some karmic energy to take place. The month will then end in the earth sign of the humble Virgo and welcome in a full moon in Aquarius, bringing individualism, community, and a final close to certain doors in our life. This is not a time to act rashly.
Overall, August is expected to be a highly energetic month full of opportunities for new creative outlets and a better alignment with our divine selves overall. But to give you a deeper look into what you can expect personally, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect to feel throughout the powerful month of August and how you can truly make the most of it. Let’s get started.

As we transition out of the blazing heat of July, we begin to slowly shift into the cooler days of the harvest season. With the coming of August, we enter the first of the three harvest festivals known as Lughnasadh. Lughnasadh (also known as the Lammas or the grain harvest) is one of the eight sabbats of the Wheel of the Year that marks the start of the harvest season. This is the time of which we begin to reap the rewards of the labor we’ve put in the last few months and give thanks to the earth for its abundant harvest. However, Lughnasadh also means we begin preparation for the cooler months of the second half of the year and begin to shift our focus towards the act of slowing down. Therefore, this is a very significant time of mental and physical change for everyone. And today, we’re going to talk all about it.
In this article, we're going to go over everything having to do with Lughnasadh. From its history to its correspondences, traditions, and a few ways you can celebrate it today, let’s dive in and get started with everything you need to know about this merry sabbat.

The moon is considered to be one of the most divine sources of healing energy when it comes to spiritual practices. Connecting directly with our soul energy, ritual practices have been based around lunar cycles for centuries. From dances in the woods on the full moon to powerful intention-setting rituals on new moons, the moon guides us to journey within ourselves to set our inner magic free. But if dancing naked in the forest isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there are plenty of other ways to harness the moon’s energy in a modern sense, and one of the most popular ways to do that is through moon water.
Moon water is one of the most simple and common practices to perform to collect the moon’s energy and can be done in just a few minutes by anyone with access to water and a container. Here's a simple beginner's guide to making moon water at home and how you can use it in your daily spiritual practices.

As we shift out of the month of May and into the abundant month of June, we get ready to welcome in the energy of the warm, passionate, and high-spirited sabbat of Litha. Litha (also known as the Midsummer Festival) is an event that occurs every summer solstice and celebrates the peak of summer. This is a time of honoring the sun and the abundant fertility of the earth as nature is thriving, the flowers are in full bloom, and the light within us is beaming. However, this is also the time that marks our transition into shorter days in the second half of the year. Therefore, this sabbat is full of many unique traditions with a variety of different energy associations.
In this article, we're going to go over all things having to do with Litha. We’re going to cover its history, correspondences, traditions, and a few ways you can celebrate it in our modern world. So if you’re ready to welcome in the joyous energies of the season, let’s dive in and get started.
