Halloween’s origin is based from the Celtic festival of Samhain. Samhain marks the end of harvest and the beginning of winter. The Celts believe that Samhain is a time when the boundaries between worlds can be crossed. A time when the Aos Si (fairies) and the dead can come to visit our world. The spirits are offered food and drink to honor them and hopefully in return they will help people get through the winter. So the Celts, especially their children, would disguise themselves to mix in with the fairy folk that roamed the earth during this day long festival.
This tradition is very useful for all of us, not only to honor the dead and nature spirits, but to investigate ourselves. The aspects that we don’t let society see or that we wished that we could try on just for a night. So I have added some ideas/personas for you to try out on Halloween based on your tarot card. Even if you don’t get dressed up, pretend to be that person for just an hour and see how that character could expand your own.
P.S. Remember, when signs have * it’s a big week for you.

And if you didn’t do last week’s check in, spend the first half of the week catching up. Because the Star is challenge you to now walk forward into your future with more energy and a new sense of hope. Halloween Costume/Past Life- Astronomer or Alien
