 Things That Go Bump in the Night  

      As you may know, the movement of the sun as well as the other planets through the zodiac or the sky is called a transit. The moon moves or transits through a zodiacal sign every 2 1/2 days. The sun moves or transits through a zodiacal sign every 30 days. And all of the other planets transit through the zodiac at different rates of speed. It is the transits of the sun and moon through the different signs that make us temporarily irritable, want to rework the budget, get and stay organized or take up a new hobby.

     Last month, starting September 24th, the sun began to move through or transit the sign of Libra.It remains in Libra until October 23rd. The Libran influence is the light and airy energy we feel as we stroll through the falling leaves, write a long over-due letter, and treat ourselves to a day of wardrobe shopping. And it is the Libran energy that creates the desire to host a Halloween costume party because Librans love to socialize.

     The closer the days come to the end of October, the more Scorpio energy we experience. The sun's movement through Scorpio is from October 24th through November 22nd. The Scorpio energy we experience can be thanked for all of the mystery that accompanies Halloween or All Hallow's Eve. And we can also thank the Scorpio energy for spicing this holiday with spooks and ghouls and "things that go bump in the night."
