What About These Veils?

Introductory Thoughts Specific to 2020:

Over the past several years the Veils have been thinning earlier than would normally have been. Many things have played into this shifting and in particular in this year of the COVID Pandemic, indeed the Veils have been opening steadily for some time. I cannot speak to how others sense this transition, so I will only share what I experience.

I begin to notice the thinning as the air seems to become denser and more “etherically” charged. I tend to feel it more palpably outside because there is generally more spaciousness when you are out in the open, but that density also crowds into my personal space as well. Often I will catch the glimpse of a shape or form in my peripheral vision, and when looking in that direction nothing concrete is there. This year, that density has been at…

The Witch's Year Tarot Spread

The Witch’s Year Tarot Spread

Today’s post is an excerpt from one I crafted on my blog at Pagan Square.I’ve routinely been asked to repeat it, so here we go. Enjoy….

The season is upon us and the Witch’s New Year is soon at hand. I have gotten in the habit of doing a Tarot Reading at Samhain, aligned with the Sabbats throughout that upcoming year as well as one at the start of the calendar year, aligned astrologically (sharing that nearer to Yule). 

The intention and flavor of many of the celebrations surrounding the Sabbats is one of a continued theme or thread of connection of one to the other creating a whole that can be used for magick, growth and deeper insights. Regardless of the theme you follow, that of the god and goddess, the cycles of the seasons, the flow of solar energy, or other-this tarot…

The Sacred Literary

When I was asked to review these two books I thought, how timely! One of our daughters is expecting her first child in December. And, with that excitement comes the memories of my own pregnancies and the five (including twins) beautiful children that we were blessed with. I wish there had been titles like these when I was pregnant. So, I will most definitely be sharing these with my daughter.

The (basic) Astrology of Samhain

The astrological imprint of Samhain is one of an energy of mystery, intuitive gifts, secrets, passion and more. The solar month of Scorpio holds the space for the parting of the veils and the celebration of Samhain on either date, October 31st or November 6-7th. Scorpio is a Water sign of the Fixed modality, and is also the only astrological sign that has three (3) levels of experience available to it. All of these attributes very juicy for the hallows of Samhain.

The traditional assignation of the Scorpion to Scorpio as its image is only one of the three forms this sign may take. The other two are that of the Eagle and the Phoenix; giving scorpio layers of dimensional energy that serve this time of interaction with the layers of the veiled worlds and our own. Additionally, Scorpio is of the Water element with…

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Image: Wendy Andrews

This time of the year, more than any other, is steeped in celebration of the occult. Occult in this sense meaning that which is hidden – although I would add, in plain sight. Spirits, witches, supernatural creatures and being mindful of the convergence of the ancestor’s realm and the living come to life in a tableau that is magickal, mundane and commercial. The penultimate day is October 31st. and the celebration of Halloween, or Samhain as it is commonly known as a spiritual observance.

The name Samhain (pronounced: SAH-win/SOW-in/SAH-wen) is derived from a Gaelic celebration that marked the final harvest. The celebration heralded Winter and the imminent darkness and often lack of stores if the harvest had not been as productive as possible. Death could potentially be waiting for those who found difficulty in surviving the harsh winter. Many who follow the Wheel of the Year use…

Temple of the Cosmic Spheres

September 17.2020

About the Ritual:

The Moon waxes New in Astrological Libra, flowing from the grace of Virgo’s detail. This ritual will call to the intention of Virgo’s Sun and Libra’s New Moon as the measure of detail required to achieve change. Libra’s balance and intention will flow as the gift of Ma’at -order and creation – becomes the recipient and harmonious energy carried forward. The Equinox and station of the Sun in Libra follow a few days later and the work of this New Moon will ensure an equinox of power.
