Merry Meet & Welcome To The Craft of the Wise

Greetings in the tenth month of October in the year of our Goddess 2010.

October is the tenth month of the year, it’s name derived from the Latin word meaning, “eight,” as it was the eighth month of the Roman calendar. Its astrological sign is Libra, the scales (September 23 – October 23), a cardinal air sign ruled by Venus. In October we enter the glorious late afternoons of the year. Bittersweet berries turn brilliant orange, and the woodland blazes with vibrant ciders reminiscent of a Persian carpets. As October passes the door to the otherworld opens wider. We become more receptive to spiritual energies and feel drawn to bond with our ancestors. The main holiday of October and one of the most magickal nights of the year; is, Samhain, or Halloween. This is a traditional time to honor our ancestors. Many seasonal decorations can help do this. The jack-o’-lantern illuminates a path so the spirits of our ancestors can find their way. Apples are used to feed the dead, so leave an apple next your door or on a plate as your table. The name of October ‘s Full Moon, the Blood Moon, come from this urge to connect with ancestors. When the Blood Moon, come from this urge to connect with ancestors. When the Blood Moon rises, it smolders like an ember in the autumn sky. She is a beacon for spiritual energy. Thank her by leaving an apple beneath a tree, or by burning some dried, wormwood in a dish and meditating on your deceased loved ones.
