Merry meet all,
I attended a Druid ritual for Mabon on the weekend. I enjoyed the ritual. The weather was cooperative.
Now is the time for dusting off our cauldrons, and collecting as many candles, incense and charcoal discs as you can. The Witches’ most magical and powerful time of year is almost here. October is my fave time of year. I pretend its October every day of the year but when October arrives, I feel the most alive. I don’t think I am the only one here.
I anticipate the release of One Night in Salem, the poetry anthology publication of my horror poem, Samhain rituals, colorful autumn leaves, herb harvest and many more things to look forward to. I plan to bake halloween cookies, mm coffin cookies anyone? watch horror movies, perform an ancestral supper and a solitary rit, and try to connect with my ancestors and spirits this October. I’ll bake barnbrack bread, pumpkin bread, brew pumpkin soup, roast seeds and conjure potions. I also like to do a horror novel trivia, and I should try writing more horror poetry. Maybe tell ghost stories around a campfire.
October is a month to live for. I don’t know of any other more magickal month of the year. I hope you all savor the month of October as passionately as I do.
Blessings, Spiderwitch )O(
