So, I'm saying- The NEW MOON on October 8th brings, as all New Moon cycles are said to do, an energy of a fresh start. This, coupled with the start of a 9 Night (10 day) festival to honor a Goddess/Energy of clearing out the B.S., which then leads on to 2 Holy Days (Samhain/Halloween, El Dia de Los Muertos) that celebrate the Death of the old and the Rebirth of the new, and another festival to celebrate the Light (Diwali, November 7, 2018 - Diwali, or Deepavali, is the Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance". Wikipedia).
And these days of October lead to Thanksgiving in the United States, which leads to all of the celebrations of the Return of the Light in December.
