Oh! The Weather Outside!
Fall Changes

Outside the air is crisp and cool and tastes of nostalgic aromas. Bright neon summer colors are being replaced with burnt oranges, deep reds, and golden yellows. It's finally here! October is one of my favorite times of the year. It is a special "in-between" time, when the Earth is getting ready for the Dark Time - Winter. Each day that passes brings us closer and closer to the Otherworld, or the Spirit World. We are starting to become more receptive to the energies around us. Our metabolisms are starting to slow down and our minds are beginning to shift from active, projective states to calm more receptive states.


It's Only Skin Deep!

October's New Moon is the ideal time to pamper yourself. Take a day, afternoon, or even an hour or two just for yourself. Don't feel guilty! Life will keep on going even if you sit a while for a pedicure. And afterwards, the people in your life will be glad that you are no longer freaking out over the proper way to fold the dish towels! So do it! Exfoliate, condition, and massage yourself. Then, after you are feeling all cozy and gorgeous, find a quiet area, sit in front of a mirror, and light a link candle. Meditate on your face (pretty toes, super soft hair...well, you get it). Recognize your beauty - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Then visualize a pretty pink light shining down on you from above. Allow this light to fill your aura, enter your body through every tight little pore, filling you up to your very soul. Come back to yourself and allow any excess energy filter back to the earth by placing your palms on the ground. This pink light is now a part of you. Call on it whenever you are feeling down, exhausted, or just need a little pick-me-up.


By the Light...
Blood Moon

The Full Moon in October is called the Blood Moon. A smoldering fire high in the Autumn sky, the Blood Moon acts as a beacon for spiritual energy. Utilize this energy by reflecting on this past year. Think about all that you have accomplished as well as the goals still yet to be met. This is a season of letting go. Light a black candle and think about all of the disappointments, regrets, and negativity from this past year. Then light a white candle and let all those nasties drain right out of you - let them go. You no longer need them - and you are going to need room for all of the wonderful things waiting for you in the upcoming year. Another great October spell is to take the pumpkin seeds left over from your Jack-o-lantern, name each one for something (or someone) you no longer want or need in your life. Then toss each seed, one by one, into a fire.


Trick or Treat

Samhain, or Halloween as it is called today, is the Main holiday in October. It's the Witches' New Year - the most mystical and magickal time of the year. It is the time when we celebrate family and loved ones by honoring those who have crossed over. Celebrate all month long by decorating your home or office with symbols of change, such as pumpkins, gourds, dried cornstalks, and hay bails. Involve your kids (if you have them) in this special sabbat by letting them create Jack-o-lanterns. Fun and easy to make, Jack-o-lanterns will, at the same time, scare away any negative energy and light the way for positive energy and spirits, and help them find their way home to their families for this one night. Leave apples near your front door or use them as a centerpiece for your dinning table. These apples are said to "feed" those who have passed on. Some cultures will hold a Dumb Supper, where family gets together for a meal and sets places at the table for certain ancestors. Another great activity for Samhain is divination. Any kind will do - rune stones, tarot cards, pendulums. And don't forget to have a Samhain Circle, or seance, where we try to contact the dead to gain comfort and wisdom.
