Between Death and Rebirth: Finding Your Worth
Tomorrow is true astrological Samhain, or the mid-point between Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice. It is the portal into the darkest weeks of the year.
Yet each year after Halloween, I watch as the darkness is quickly filled with lights, Christmas songs, and ads encouraging you to get on your Holiday shopping ASAP!
I watch as this liminal time of the unknown is quickly over-riden by a culture clinging to the light’s return at Winter Solstice/Christmas time, almost begging for it to come more quickly.
I recently watched a really cheeky IG reel talking about this phenomenon, referring to it as “Scorpio Erasure Season.” HA!! It’s so true! (As a Scorpio I very much loved this reel). Collectively we are *so* afraid of facing the darkness. We don’t want to face the painful or ugly things about life, especially how they manifest inside of us. We don’t want to swim in the unknown waters. We want direction, answers, and next steps. We want to cover any discomfort. We want LIGHT.
