Samhain

 

Probably the most famous of all Sabbats – Samhain – October 31.  Most commonly known as Halloween, this festival is a celebration of the third and final harvest and is a time to remember and commune with our ancestors.  It is also a time to celebrate the eternal cycle of reincarnation.  This is when the veil between the two worlds is at its thinnest; a time when we can reflect upon past deeds and to gain advice from the other side of the veil.  It is a time for divination.

The colours of this Sabbat are black and orange and your altar should be decorated in these colours.  I use a black velvet cloth and adorn my altar with black and orange candles and sprigs of Rosemary and Thyme as these are herbs of remembrance.  For a bit of fun I sprinkle some foil confetti in the shapes of pumpkins and bats over my altar too!  I carve a small pumpkin lantern for my altar and a large one which is placed in the window.  A good incense to use for this night is Patchouli or cinnamon or use one which increases psychic awareness.

You have an abundance of choice for your Samhain feast: traditionally I celebrate with a casserole, jacket potatoes and parkin and roasted chestnuts.  My altar also reflects this with pomegranates, apples, chestnuts, which are later taken outdoors and given as offerings.  

This is a good night for getting together with friends and family and having a go at tarot or some other divination.  I always advise not to take this too seriously; however, the results can be uncanny!  Your ritual (whether it is with a large group or a solitary rite) should include some time for reflection and giving thanks and remembering those who have passed before us.  I include photos of loved ones on my altar.  Never attempt to call back any spirits – however, is they wish to join you for your celebration they will let you know.  

This is also a good time for banishing magic to be done – that is, banishing negative energies, or negative habits, remember our intentions to harm none, so no attempt on banishing directed at people, animals etc. should be done!
