Samhain – Flashback 200

“Samhain/Halloween

At this time of year, the Sun is in Scorpio, a sign often associated with death, finality, and endings. Every ending leads to rebirth the process that leads back Pluto, ruler of Scorpio. Although he’s known as the God of the Underworld. Pluto also represents regeneration, transformation, and reincarnation. He asks us to celebrate death instead of fearing it, to understand that death is only the step before birth, and to trust in the immortality of the life-force. Pay homage to this dark God by honoring the spirits of those who have crossed over during the year. They have completed an evolutionary lesson and are now preparing for their journey back to the world of the living, refreshed and renewed. The candles we place in our windows help to guide them home, and burying an apple, at the foot of a tree gives them nourishment for this next leg of their journey. On this sacred evening when the veils between worlds are at their thinnest, celebrate the “graduation” of the souls who have left us. Rejoice in their lives, instead of mourning their deaths.”
