Last Supermoon of the Year TONIGHT October 26th, 2015

A Supermoon is when the Moon is cloest to the Earth. While  four to six of these happen every year only a few coincide with a Full Moon. This makes our Lovely Lady’s power more accessible and stronger for those of us here on Earth. If you can do a ritual outside tonight I suggest you do. I unfortunately, have to work so won’t be able to take advantage of it.

Samhain – Flashback 2011

“Every Samhain marks the passage of the year, and those who parted ways during the journey of that year. While popularly we do enjoy the frivolity of the ghosts and goblins, the silly costumes, and the sugar highs, the underpinnings of this holiday are quite serious. While Christians have All Soul’s Day on November 2, to Wiccans, October 31 is the day you just might hear and see the souls in their march to lands hidden beyond the knowledge of the lving. This is the time to clean the graves of your ancestors, and to make right any debts you may still owe. If you have access go to a river or creek and recite the names of your beloved dead, starting with the people who have passed most recently. As you speak, throw a leaf, flower, or branch in the water to represent their boat as they travel down the river of souls. When you finish, watch your vessels float away and listen carefully for what the dead may have to say to you. This is a time to make peace and to forget old wrongs – the sins have died with the person, leaving you behind to make you own world right. When you return home, sit down for a quite meal with those you love most.”

Beltane – Flashback 2011

“Finally, the last of the snow has cleared, you’ve got some good weather to put your plant sprouts in the ground, and the extra sunlight has got you feeling good.

It’s time to celebrate. Not only have you survived winter, you have many months of warm weather, green growth, and sensual pleasure to enjoy. Make the most of it by having a bonfire and inviting your honey or someone you are interested in romantically. With the crackling fire and the first stirrings of summer breezes, see what stirs inside you and do what comes naturally. If it’s a party for two, have a little-unscented massage oil nearby. If it’s a larger party, use this time to tell stories and insprie each other to begin new projects in the coming season. If you don’t have a lover or prospective interest, this is also a time to bring out a creative project – have your favorite art-making tools on hand to create as you sit fireside. To help passion along, add a few chips of cedar wood and sandalwood to the flames. Inhale the heady scent, and pour a little honey into the flames as well – ask for the season ahead to be filled with sweetness and passion, and then pursue some passion of your own.’
