Witches New Year Glass Vigil Candle . Samhain, Halloween, Ancestral Workings, New Beginnings
Exactly opposite Beltane on the Wheel of the Year, Samhain is Beltane’s dark twin. On October 31st, the veil between the worlds is now at its thinnest. It is at this time that we divine answers, making contact with our ancestral spirits, embracing our heritage in celebration with those who have crossed over into the spirit world.
Samhain, pronounced “sow-en”, is the Witches New Year, and is the most magical and important night of the year. A celebration of death, it is also a time of endings, reflection of mortality, and releasing that which no longer serves in the mundane world. As well, a time of new beginnings, setting our intentions and focusing on a refreshed and renewed destiny.
An old ancient rite tells of writing a message to our departed loved ones on a piece of paper and casting it into the cauldron's fire. As the paper burns, your message is released and will be acknowledged by the recipient. You can also write your intentions for change and renewal in this same fashion.
