Merry Samhain evening my friends! It’s here….the night Witches wait for all year long…The most magickal, spell-binding, veil-walking night of the Year….Samhain!
The weather here fits the night! Gloomy, drizzly, windy and cold! A perfect night for a fire, lit candles, warm food on the stove or in the oven, and a nice glass of belly warming wine..or two. I’ve had the feeling for a while….you know what feeling I’m talking about. Some say “like someone is walking on my grave.” That tingly, sure feeling you get..that knowing that someone is with you…not of this world. Tonight, the veil opens all the way. To allow our ancestors to be with us….to converse, teach, guide and to just share love with us. All we have to do is quiet ourselves, breathe…..and listen!
A place will be set at my dinner table for any guest from the other side who cares to join us. I have smudged the house, swept out the old and negative and left room for the positive for the New Year. I feel content and Blessed and ready for all the exciting things coming my way for my family, friends and I. I hope you all feel the same!
So raise a glass on this night of Samhain, the Witch’s New Year….this magickal night of Nights and send Thanks and Love to the Goddess for the blessings of the past and the blessings yet to come. Have a very Blessed Night!
Samhain is here, cold is the earth,
as we celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth.
Tonight we speak to those through the veil,
the lines between worlds are thin and frail.
Ghosts and spirits in the night,
magical beings rising in flight,
owls hooting up in a moonlit tree,
I don’t fear you and you don’t fear me.
As the sun goes down, far to the west,
my ancestors watch over me as I rest.
They keep me safe and without fear,
on the night of Samhain, the Witch’s New Year.
