The week before Halloween 2022 will be one of the busiest from an astrological point of view for the number of relevant planetary events that will happen soon and whose energies will unleash the mysticism of the season of witches and ghosts.

October 31 concentrates a very powerful energy, not only because the portal between the world of the living and the dead is connected, but also because it is located exactly at the midpoint between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice.

The pagan festival of the Celts Samhain, which gave rise to Halloween, celebrated this moment between autumn and winter as “the death of the old year”, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is why it began to be associated with cemeteries and spirits.

But beyond the mysterious magic that accompanies the celebration of Halloween, there are the planetary events that add a spooky, yet spectacular touch to Halloween. Next, we tell you what is the astrological climate that awaits us prior to the most terrifying holiday of the year.

Solar Eclipse in Scorpio

On October 25, a new portal opens once the partial solar eclipse occurs in Scorpio, the most mysterious sign of the zodiac. According to Bustle, it will be a time of deep introspection and self-discovery.

Eclipses in astrology signify great changes and bring us rapidly closer to our destiny, which, on paper, can be terrifying because it indicates that we will be facing the unknown.

Jupiter will return to Pisces

On October 28, Jupiter, the planet of abundance and the one that expands everything it touches, will enter Pisces within its retrograde cycle. This sign is the most spiritual and ethereal of the zodiac, so it will throw a more mystical air to the night of witches. It will signify a period of spiritual growth.

Mercury will enter Scorpio

On October 29, Mercury, the planet in charge of communication, will enter the mystical and reserved sign of Scorpio, ruler of rebirth and the most attached to the occult. Before this transit, our thoughts will be more curious to find out what lies beyond what our eyes can see and our minds guess. It will be a good time to find out dark secrets.

Mars retrograde

The day before Halloween will begin the retrograde of Mars, the planet of war, action and passions. It can manifest itself with lack of motivation or resistance and will make it difficult for us to move towards our goals which certainly sounds creepy.
