Welcome to the Witches Year & the seasonal celebration of Samhain in the South on 30th April / 1st May.   

Samhain is when the veils are the thinnest between the spirit & the physical realms.

Potent intentions are set at this time with intense dreaming for many, as it is a time of returning and remembering.

As we head into the winter cauldron, we light the ancestral fires to keep their memory burning bright.

Here in the Southern Hemisphere we celebrate the seasonal wheel the opposite to the Northern folk who traditionally celebrate Samahin - 31st Oct / 1st Nov.

It is interesting to note that the astrological mid-point when the sun is at 15deg Taurus this year 5th May. This seasonal marker of 15 degrees is directly in the middle of the equinox and solstice points.

As Witch & keeper of star lore, this delights me as it weaves together the solar & lunar themes.

Let us not forget that the ancestors govern  the seasonal gateway of Samhain. They may push and pull you, sometimes kicking & screaming, into the unknown darkness to release all that is stagnant, worn-out and tired in your life.

What does not truly inspire you, energise you or give you passion?

The objective is clear, direct, honest & sharp like a diamond. This season does not reflect the subjectivity and immaturity of the younger Self.

In the darkness of Samahin, an ancestor presents a seed-pod containing several seeds.  You have to choose which one you wish to plant.

Just spend a moment visualizing the planted seed in the moist, potent dark soil of regeneration.

The symbolic seed represents the gift of hope, renewal and resurrection.

Much love, Mikailah Star Witch x
