Halloween is Pagans/WiTCHES New Year called SAMHAIN
October 31st is when the Veil between the world’s is the thinnest
it’s the best night in the year to scry, gaze into your crystal ball and connect with the spirits of your Ancestors.
It is the noche of Día de los Muertos the Day of the Dead in Mexico.
Remember the Burning Times by Tara Greene copyright 2012-infinity
These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of junk candy scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lids, etc etc. another commercialized holiday. The kiddies are given way too much sugar. The guys love to dress in drag, it is the modern version of the SATURNALIA.
But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallow’ed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year when the Sun is in Scorpio, sign of Birth, Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth.
The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared Night.
I wish in the midst of your pumpkin carving and revelry that you take time out to honour this day as it was originally intended. Remember in the midst of all the superficial trappings of Halloween, the hundreds of thousands, some say up to 9,000,000 mainly women, children and men who were accused of being witches by the Catholic Church who were tortured and burned at the stake. Old women, crones, medicine women, herbalists, midwives, pagans, their families, the poor, all innocent people who lived in harmony with Nature, who Loved their Mother the Earth, who knew the Wise Women Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick and dying, the mothers giving birth. It was a mysogynist Nazi Christian tyranny that went on for over 300 years in Europe and to the New World where the last woman was burned at the stake at Salem, Mass.
Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You didn’t have to be Jewish or Muslim you mainly just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church. The genderside continues daily on this planet.
I remember my own burning, I relived this memory of my past life during a Holotropic Breathwork session. Those 100,000-200,000 to 9 million innocent souls who were terribly tortured and burned are back now on this earth.Deep in the cells of your own being, in your cellular consciousness be you male or female at this time, you remember the Burning Times, when you lived in total fear, when you hid you pagan religion, your ability to help, to heal, your compassion. When tyranny was all around and anyone could accuse you of being a witch thereby ensuring your almost certain death. Watch The Burning Times a Canada Film Board movie which chronicles in detail this stain upon humanity.
Light a candle for those hundreds of thousands,nay millions of souls whose lives were taken by a cruel arrogant Church,hypocritical to the nth degree. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your children or your dog or cat, a friend or even your landlord was surely enough one of those people.
It’s time to acknowledge the deep pain in the shadows of our unconscious. The only way to heal it is to acknowledge that shadow, let the tears flow, the grief, the agony. This brings it out of unconsciousness otherwise that shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and self, believing that we are not worthy, not lovable, deceitful, sinners,powerless. There is a collective shadow of women being afraid to hold their power and beauty.
As this is a New Year in the Ancient Count of Days, Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love and Forgiveness. For the only way out is to forgive the accusers for their ignorance. This takes great strength and courage, for as you Forgive them you also forgive yourself and allow yourself to be free of the past.
Chiron the wounded healer comes to mind here.

This HAlloween 2012 is under a just past Full Gemini MOON
so will be a very busy bustling Halloween. At 8:33 pm Los Angeles time the Moon at 4 degrees gemini conjuncts LILLITH, the dark feminine Rejected powerful original woman before EVE.
MOON LILLITH brings up all the dark Feminine energy to Halloween especially as it is opposite Mercury- TRUTH in Sagittarius and in sqaure to both CHIRON the Wounded Healer, and Neptune spirituality and Forgivenss, imagination and dreaming.
The dream of the rebirth of the FEMININE is here. PLease vote OBAMA, he is not the greatest choice but the ONLY choice in order for 51% of the population to be FREE.
She will arise on HALLOWE’ED EVE and whisper in your soul and make the Divine Feminine the PSYCHE come alive and be heard.
She is KALI/DURGA and her wrath is nothing compared to Hurricane Sandy which I believe is part of her emanation/menstruation.
HAPPY SAFE Hallow’ed Eve and I’ll see you as I fly on my broom
