HAPPY HALLOWEEN / Samhain / (Beltane)
The time rapidly approaches for Samhain in the Northern hemisphere and Beltane in the Southern world, mirror images and two halves of the same whole.
At Samhain, the beginning of the old winter, by single soft amethyst candlelight into which we drop grains of sage, we break with echoes from the past that hold us back, drawing from Beltane, the start of the ancient summer, whether our own or across the world, creative impetus, germinating stars of our future growth and dreams. At Beltane likewise whether pulsating beneath our feet, a twenty four hour plane ride or eye blink away in cyber space, we risk all for happiness and fulfillment, leap over twin fires or light our two red candles and make them sparkle with salt to welcome future generations; drawing on the visions of the Samhain fireside of the ancestors who assure us we carry within us their hopes and their wisdom to our children’s children’s children, whether our own or those we influence. The faults and failings are buried with the dying year.
We create from what has been lost and let go what stands in the way of claiming or reclaiming our power. Though death is ever-present in the world we need not cower in the shadows but rejoice in every day we are granted, a blessing and a bonus; as we look up at the fires of the ancestors in the stars we know that those hundreds of years hence will still wish upon the stars and rejoice at the seasons turning.
Samhain’s Jack o’ lantern whom the loveliest of
Morrigu Fate sisters three times in his life asked to go with her across
the river of death to immortality, was too afraid; so he walks between
worlds with his small light, recalled as the Samhain pumpkin. But six
months later he is reborn as the wild Beltane Jack ‘o’ Green, who seizes
life, free as the burgeoning woodland greenery and crowns the maiden
goddess with wildflowers. Both Jacks are one, are within us and the
choice is not always easy, but we make decisions based on the resources
and the knowledge we have at the time and so we should never regret the
past but use it to weave the glorious garland of the future. If we plant
and reap in their own seasons and do not seek to change what is
inevitability, then we will live authentically, beautifully and
eternally in the winds, the waters, in our words, our kindnesses, in
those we try to influence for the better, in our recalled idiosyncrasies
and unique foot and blueprint and the newly blossoming flowers of summer
and the falling leaves of the winter days..
