Scorpio season runs from October 22 to November 22 and is most notorious for housing the pagan festival of Samhain. Halloween then originates with Samhain, celebrated on November 1. The association with death comes from the fact that the night-time hours in the northern hemisphere begin to become more than the daylight hours at this time of the year.
Scorpio Season Meaning
The Sun gets lower in the sky day by day. The nights are drawing in. There will be a celebration of the harvest that will see us through the long, cold winter months. But if the harvest was bad, then you could starve to death. So this time of the year was very much about life and death. It’s no wonder the sign of Scorpio is associated then with sorcery, death and transformation. Most of what applies to this time of the year is already covered in The spiritual meaning of Halloween.
Scorpio Crystals & Colours
Crystals that resonate well with Scorpio energy will be stones that are associated with Scorpios ruling planet Mars but also element of water. So Scorpio crystals are Snakeskin Agate, Bloodstone, Garnet, Ruby, Aquamarine, Malachite, Tourmaline, Obsidian and Peridot.
Scorpio Mars energy is totally different than Aries Mars energy. The raw, wild side of Aries is refined in Scorpio, but it can be much more cunning. Mars is classed as a malefic planet, but with Scorpio you may not see that as any malignancy might be cloaked or disguised. The red colour associated with Mars is not a bright red. It is a cooler red, sometimes purple becoming richer and darker. So mahogany, burgundy, crimson and blood red are Scorpio’s colours. Black, dark blue and graphite grey are also given to Scorpio.
Scorpio Herbs & Flowers
Scorpio has a fermented and spicy energy so a blend that includes some of these aromas: allspice, ginger, myrrh, patchouli, clove and cumin would appeal to the Scorpio senses. Herbs, fruits and flowers of Scorpio would include the Pomegranate, Anemone, Ivy, Valerian, Basil, Blackberry, Heather, Lily and Geranium. The Scorpio flavoured gods and goddesses are all very obviously connected with the underworld. So we have the dark goddesses Ereshkigal, Hekate, Isis and Persephone. Gods are Anubis, Mars, Osiris, Set and Pluto.
