Happy Samhain-tide greetings to you all,
Last month was a doozy; my roommate and I lost her sweet doggie Tater, and it was devastating. The loss occurred the same day as my father's deathday anniversary, which is a strange synchronicity to be sure. That grief, coupled with painful anniversaries (9/11), catastrophic weather (see my YouTube video for a spontaneous ceremony to assist the Oceans), terrorist attacks, the crumbling political climate, a late-summer explosion of pollen, and the constant frenetic pressure from the Planets...just wow. According to some of my dear friends, the energy is continually ramping up: this may just be the New Normal in the physical realms!
We are approaching the Dark of the Year, which can bring a few different types of energies into one's life. Samhain is the Celtic New Year, through the purging of the previous one (note this holiday's occurrence at the end of Harvest Season). Some folks find this time of year difficult, due to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). increased responsibility within families (i.e., Holiday Season), large bills, etc. The biggest supports that can help folks through these stressors are Grounding & Centering (daily if you can do it, but definitely weekly if you can't find the time), sharing Spiritual Community (Witchvox can sometimes be helpful), and growing relationships in the Otherworlds (via classes and workshops). This is also a time for Shadow Work and self-healing, as well as refocusing on your personal goals.
As always, for those that are interested in mentoring, divination, house clearings, and/or personal healing appointments, I have numerous open days during the week, and some weekend slots still open; I'd love to work with you to create a personal and individual ceremony!
I am looking forward to working with everyone this month, and I'm excited to help folks grow their relationships with their Helping Spirits. Have a great few weeks, and see ya'll soon!
