Color of the day: Crimson
Incense of the day: Myrrh
Mercury in retrograde motion brings the chance for poor communication. What if this year you choose to bring your practice inward? Interact with no one, no front porch lights, no treats for the neighborhood children. Plan a Halloween movie retreat in your own home. A few musts: candles or incense, cleansing of body and viewing space, and comfortable seating. Enjoy your favorite seasonal celebration foods and beverages, healthy or not. Dress up or down. How about mulled wine, finger foods, and a pumpkin dessert? Then dive into one or more of the non-horror films of the season. A few examples: Hocus Pocus or Bedknobs and Broomsticks or maybe even It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown or Practical Magic. Hollywood provides numerous choices. Bell Book and Candle, anyone? Settle in for a film fest and scoff at the inconsistencies.
