I have always identified with being a witch, very much so. I was teased and called a witch since I was a kid because of my unruly coarse black hair and intense energy. Numerologically I am a number 11/2. A High Priestess and remember past lives serving in Ancient Temples. I felt connected to Circe the Sorceress since I was a teenager. Going to Stonehenge, Greece and Ephesus, Turkey when I was 17 brought many past life memories back into my consciousness as a High Priestess. I remember being burned at the stake in a past life through intuition and past life regressions. I used to work with a small coven of women in the 1980s but have been a solitary coven of and I also do ceremonies with my husband. I was initiated as a Green Witch by Susun Weed at her Wise Woman Center in Woodstock in 1987. I have always known that women have magical power because they can give birth and bleed and are tuned into the cosmos, and are always straddling the worlds. I’ve always felt connected to the cosmos and Nature and participating in the ancient turning of the circle of the years. I feel connected to the Darkness, and Scorpio death-rebirth and transformation.
|Halloween is Pagans/Witches New Year called SAMHAIN October 31st is when the Veil between the worlds 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.
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, the 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 a Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared/Scary Night. 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 misogynist fascist 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 only had to be a woman who owned land, who had some power and status and if you were old you were worthless. It was a land grab by the Catholic Church. You simply 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 BBF, your boss or colleagues 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.” This was originally written in 2012.
You can see how far women’s awareness has shifted because now being a WITCH and the #MeToo movement and being further into the 1,000-year long reign of the 2000s initiated by the High Priestess in the Tarot #2 is burgeoning along. There may be the first Woman Vice President in U.S. History elected in a few days.
As this is a New Year in the Ancient Pagan turning of the great circle of the year
Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love.
on the rare BLUE MOON put your crystals out under the FULL MOON light to be cleansed for a new year.
HALLOWEEN 2020 is a RARE BLUE Full MOON and under Covid-19 most people will not be trick or treating as usual. Which in this instance is a good thing. 2020 has turned everyone back into themselves to examine what is really valuable to them.
Lilith the Dark Goddess and CIRCE the Sorceress are conjunct the Moon at 1and 2 degrees Taurus.
MOON LILLITH, CIRCE brings up all the dark Feminine energy to Halloween especially as she is opposite the SCORPIO SUN which Lilith is associated with.
The dream of the rebirth of the FEMININE is here.
LILITH the demonized empowered Goddess of equality will rise and will be invisible but conjunct the Full Moon on HALLOWE’EN EVE and whisper in your soul and make the Divine Feminine, come alive and be heard. So sit in ceremony and scry on the night when the veils between the worlds is thinnest. Lilith will also come into your dreams. LILITH is KALI/DURGA and her wrath is nothing compared to any Hurricane.
HAPPY SAFE Hallow’ed Eve and I’ll see you as I fly on my broom
