Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air,
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life’s worth living when we say, October!”
– Joseph Pullman Porter
Merry Meet my friends! Happy October!!! October..what a beautiful Month..my favorite..as those of you who know me..know 🙂 October..the Season of the Witch!!
It was a wonderful Mabon at my house and the Harvest Moon has been Full, and bright and big and filled with energy and magick! Tonight is the first night I haven’t been able to see Her…it has been raining gently for a few hours now. A lovely Autumn rain!
I’m sitting in my favorite chair..a glass of Witch’s Brew spiced wine in my hand, a fire in the fireplace, listening to music and relaxing. I am in Bliss with the fact that my favorite time of year is here…Autumn…in all her splendor.
October…immediately brings to mind woodsmoke and fires, crisp air nights and blue sky days, mums, pumpkins and the last of our garden’s bounty, sweaters, colorful leaves falling in brisk, cool air. Birds flocking and critters gathering, apple pickin and eatin and bakin, warm spiced cider, raking and burning leaves, black cats and ghostie spirits and trick or treats. Halloween parties, Ancestor altars, and Dumb Suppers. I could go on and on with the things that bring me great Joy this time of year!
My Witchy friends are all happy right along with me.…planning for the Witch’s greatest night of the Year….Samhain! Our New Year!! A Most glorious, wondrous, magickal, mysterious Night! I can’t wait!!!
I look forward to sharing this wonderful Season with you all!
“Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!”
– Humbert Wolfe
Blessings for a beautiful Fall!!!
Love and Light, Autumn

such a lovely post, it is my favourite time of the year too and very magical for me personally as it is when I first realised that I was indeed pagan and commited myself to telling people. Hugs Sara
