Merry Samhain & Happy Halloween

Today is a day to let the child inside come out to play. Nothing wrong with having fun and letting yourself play a little.

Halloween has become a secular holiday for Trick or Treat and nothing else. It’s not a Pagan holiday and it’s no longer a Christian holiday. So let the children play and have some unencumbered fun!

Once the children have had their fill at play, you can focus on the spiritual aspects of the day. For Pagans that means honoring Samhain.

Whither you use the Gaelic pronunciation “Sow-en”, “Sow-ween”, Sah-ween” or the Americanized version “Sam-hain” (yes that is an acceptable pronunciation), it’s still the biggest holiday on the Pagan Calendar. We honor the Celtic New Year with ritual and reverence to honor the spirits of the past and the doorway that has been opened for this one night to communicate with those we’ve lost.

From everyone here at Spring’s Haven, we wish you a very Happy Halloween, a Merry Samhain and a Happy New Year!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Cups

Knave Of Cups
Bring out the kid in yourself and enjoy the day. There’s no reason to be stressed, nothing has to be perfect! Don’t force the issue and allow anger ruin the fun for everyone. Go with the flow and take things as they come in the spirit of the season. Have a Spooktacular Day & Night!!

Additional Insight:

Today is both one of fun and of reverence, but you can have both if you simply allow the child inside come out to play.

For pagans it’s a day to honor the old year, those we’ve lost and can communicate with from spirit. But it’s also a day to honor the children and allow them to enjoy the secular holiday of Trick or Treat. You really can do both!

Don’t allow frustrations to get in the way. If things aren’t working out the way you intended, then alter your intentions. Go with the flow. Let the energy of the day lead you where it may. You just might find out that you’re being taken to a place you need to be for the fun and excitement.

If you fight against the flow and try to force things in the hole you want them to be in, you will do nothing but add to your anxiety and create confrontation within yourself and with those around you. Take a moment to try to accomplish what you want. But if you can’t get it done right away, ask the Divine in your life what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The key is to relax and listen.

This is the one day above all others that Spirit will clearly speak with you. So take time to honor that presence and listen! You might be surprised by what you hear!

May you all have a fantastic Spooktacular Halloween and a wonderful and Merry Samhain!
