It is a good
time for scrying and divination
this time we honor the Spirit world, our Ancestors' Spirits, our deceased, and
our Spirit Guides.

Dancing 'round the flame of Summer's end-
sparks of golden yellow celebrate Samhain.
Twirling around tossing leaves in the air-
laughing and giggling while catching them in
The last harvest is in as turns the new year
while the chill of Yule draws ever so near.
The dead will join our festive feasts,
giving glimpses of our past, present and future
Come young maidens, mothers and crones-
Let the whispers of spirits rattle your bones.
Embrace the silence of the coming dark
and join the Sabbat's circle with open mind and
Samhain is known as
the witch's new year, and is considered the time when the veil between our world
and the spirit world is at its thinnest.
In the Norse pantheon, Samhain begins nine nights before October 31 and ends on
the ninth night after October 31. The veils are consistently transparent during
that time but reaches its peak at Samhain, October 31. Time of Samhain, a time
between the worlds,
a time unlike any other...Here we ask the Ancients for their blessings, here we
ask the Crone Goddess and Mother of all life for Her blessings.
Samhain is the time to work your magick relating to astral projection, past life
recall, dark moon mysteries, scrying, inner work, and transformation.
