Now is the height of autumn...such a short season but so impossibly beautiful. The leaves which adorn the trees near my home are brilliant...bright hues of gold orange and red. The wind blows hard in from the sea and the days are dark and oh so cold...nature preparing for the long great sleep. The first magick that I ever worked was natural magick...an endless source of inspiration.
I will build an altar to the dead...honoring my grandparents, a dear friend I lost as a child, and my mother in law (whom I never had the privledge to meet here on earth).
I will go to the market and hunt out the delicacies of the season...chestnuts, sugar pumpkins, swedish apples, root vegetables, dark leafy greens...and cook up a large feast for myself and the ones i love, making sure to set a plate outside my door for wandering spirits.
Of course I will carve a jack-o-lantern...
And make merry with my friends...
The rest is solemn and secret...
I also celebrate Hallowmas on November 1. This is a day of quiet rememberance.
Make a place in your heart for the dead, and offer to them your love.
