It is said that on Samhain the veil between the worlds has grown thin. The idea of a veil between worlds is actually misleading without understanding the context, as these worlds are not concretely separated. This boundary is referred to by many other names and images such as a hedge or a mist, which is used a lot in pagan and witchcraft traditions. The world of the living and the world of the spirits overlap but are hidden behind a metaphoric veil of perception, which keep in mind is only a sheer piece of fabric to begin with. During Samhain while in the sign of Scorpio (ruled by Pluto) the world of the spirits is the easiest to access, as that boundary of perceived separation isn’t as concrete. This makes this time of the year the easiest to experience and communicate with spirits.
