All Hallow's Eve
By Starr Ravenhawk
Sly does it. Tiptoe catspaws. Slide and creep.
But why? What for? How? Who? When! Where did it all begin?
'You don't know, do you?' asks Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud climbing out
under the pile of leaves under the Halloween Tree. 'You don't REALLY know!'
by Mike Nichols --Ray Bradbury
from 'The Halloween Tree'
Friday November 1st
IN THE GARDEN AT AVENUE C AND EAST 9TH STREET IN THE EAST VILLAGE
Samhain. All Hallows. All Hallow's Eve. Hallow E'en. Halloween. The most magical night of the year, Samhain is the best-loved Sabbat for many of us, sometimes called 'THE Great Sabbat.'
Exactly opposite Beltane on the wheel of the year, Halloween is Beltane's dark twin. A 'spirit night', as they say.
The dark half of the year commences on this night. The Witches' New Year's Eve, as well as the third and final harvest festival in the Wheel of the Year.
A night of power, when the veil that separates the worlds of the living from the Otherworld of the dead, becomes its thinnest. A night to remember deceased loved ones and honor ancestors.
Samhain is a night that exists outside of time and hence it may be used to view any other point in time.
Not only is Samhain the end of autumn; it is also, more importantly, the end of the old year and the beginning of the new. These two themes, celebrating the dead and divining the future, are inexorably intertwined in Samhain, as they are likely to be in any New Year's celebration.
Witches leave out a candle to guide loved ones home, a glass of wine to remind them that they are loved and remembered and a cake to remind them of the sweetness of life that we shared together. But this is not a sad time, for we have our loved ones back for a little and so love and laughter, song, dance and drama, are the order of the season, a time to celebrate.
All are welcome of whatever path you follow, to share together the power of The Goddess and God, if you are a newcomer, whether Pagan, Witch, Druid or Shaman or have as yet not found your path.
Bring with you pictures or such of your loved ones and come ready to do your Paper of Regrets, to place into the cauldron to be burnt, ready to start a new page in your book of life. For this is a time to ponder on and celebrate the Dark Mysteries of ourselves and nature, reflected in the wonderful salve of the Crone and the God of the Underworld.
Samhain is also known as Halloween, All Hallow's Eve, Hallowmas, Day of the Dead, Third Harvest, Hallowstide, and Celtic New Year.
Spell/ritual work: astral projection, past life recall, Dark Moon mysteries, mirror spells, scrying, protection, inner work, clearing obstacles, transition, culmination, transformation. Releasing bad habits and toxic relationships, illness, failure and poverty; everything you do not want to carry into the new year.
BRING HAND INSTRUMENTS -- drums, flutes, tambourines, claves, maracas, etc. AS IT IS A GREAT TIME FOR DANCING AND MERRIMENT.
Attire: suggested attire color white, black, yellow, orange (not required for attendance) .
A fee of $15.00 in person $16.00 via online payments is required. (please bring receipt of online payment) .
Payments online www.wftacademyofpaganstudies.webs.com under events, www.wiccanfamilytemple.com or at meetup: http://witches.meetup.com/1439/boards/. www.charmedbystarr.com.
