Sun in Scorpio

The Sun generally enters Scorpio on October 22 to 24 each year. See Table Below.

This begins a 30 day journey dedicated to the mysteries of death and rebirth. Death is a part of the natural cycle of life. In times past the death mysteries were honored and celebrated at this time of year.

Skeleton Woman or Lady Death reminds us of the importance of being willing to surrender and completely trust the death process as something magical and necessary for renewal and rebirth. It is the gift of the life/death/life process.
In the current time, fear of death dominates many people’s life experience.

Practices honoring the ancestors and those who have died were essential to ancient people who understood the importance of maintaining a healthy organic connection to the life/death/life cycle. They knew this was the time of year to honor the ancestors because in essence “What is remembered Lives!”

Many plants are dying now as their season is nearly complete and they are beginning to synthesize what is needed to create new seeds for the next cycle. This is a time of inner reflection and noticing what needs to die, what is ending, and what is beginning.

October 22
I read in Guy Ottewell’s Astronomical Calendar a good 12 years ago a reference to October 22 – citing the Annals of the Old Testament by Archbishop James Ussher (1650) referencing the Julian calendar being calculated to begin around 4004 BC and the creation of the world began at nightfall on October 22.

No additional information is given about why this date was chosen. I haven’t researched it further but would love to know if anyone knows why this date represents the beginning of a new age or new calendar depending on your point of view?
