That’s it Stargazers, we are officially in the middle of Spooky Season. October conjures up images of pumpkins, spices, soups, skeletons — all kinds of things that go bump in the night. It’s only fitting that the nights are getting longer, allowing us a little more time to gaze up at the stars and ponder our place amongst all things. Maybe that’s not so spooky, but, hey, October contains multitudes.

This month, we have a new moon in Libra on October 6. Venus enters Sagittarius on October 7 (maybe a good time to use some airline miles or take a short trip out of town). October 20 there is a full moon in Aries, and on October 23 we enter Scorpio season. This is a great month to discover new things and conquer old fears!
