A Thought for Today

What is the Reason for Rain on Samhain?

[Revisions made September 25,2021 so a couple of dates might be wrong. The dates for my father’s and mother’s births and deaths are correct]

I have often wonder why it almost always rains and is cold on Samhain. Where I live, in the central United States, it usually nice the day before and the day after but rarely the day of.

This morning my Guides gave me an answer to this question that seems so right I have no idea why I never thought of it. It rains on Samhain because the veil between our world and the Summerlands is very thin allowing what the Spirits of our family and friends are feeling about residing in the Summerlands to come into our world and our feelings to go easier into their world. It also makes it easier to converse with them in many different ways (coming soon a post explaining this more)

Just as we weep for loved ones lost because we miss the person they were in this lifetime they weep because they miss us also so. The rain we experience is in reality their tears. The cold is because they do not need heat to keep a incarnated body warm like we do in this world.

When honoring your ancestors this Samhain remember to take into account their feelings and try to explain yours to them. Communication is not just important when we some someone face to face it is important when dealing with those who have crossed over too.  Do not think the dialogue has to stop when Samhain is over, it may not be as easy to hear them but if they have something you really need to hear you will. Talk to them, ask them questions, tell them things. Just because they no longer have a physical body does not mean they are not interested in things going on in your life.

When helping those who passed away this past year cross into the Summerlands remind them of the happiness, rest, joy and love they will feel there instead of the cold uncertainty of roaming this world with no physical body. If you feel they are hanging on to something in this world or have unfinished business they want to take care before moving across the veil ask how you can help them let go or finish the unfinished business. It is important for us all to cross into the Summerlands after our physical bodies will no longer support life in this world, so we can rejuvenate and be reborn into our next life time.

Talking with my mom today and helping her to finish something she left undone (this I will not share as it was very personal between the two of us) after dreaming about her the other night (October 2015) for the first time since she passed (Born December 12, 1934 Died August 24, 2015) brought a calm to me I have not felt since the day before she passed. I knew the moment my mom passed as I felt a pull on both my heart and root charkas the two most connected thigs in our human body that connect us our to our parents and our children. She is happy and excited to be fully reunited with my dad, he refused rebirth until she and he could have some time together alone and with my eight siblings, who all passed away shortly before or after birth, in the Summerlands They both told me today that they will wait for me to join them in the future when it is my time to return to the Summerlands before they consider another lifetime in this world. Which made me feel very loved and special. It also makes me cry happy/sad tears every time I think about the sacrifice they choose to make for me. You see my dad (Born March 25, 1934) crossed over the veil exactly one month before my twelfth birthday on April 1, 1970. (Please NO April Fool’s jokes. Thank you)

I am sorry if this post seems to ramble some but I was typing as it came to me and had a couple of interruptions for trick-or-treater, all the kids in the neighborhood love to come to the Witch’s house because she gives out good treat if they do not trick her.

[Some of this paragraph maybe early while some of it could be what  you needed to read today] May your Samhain be blessed,. May your time with your ancestors be joyful. My your New Year be filled with everything you need, a warm home, loving family and friends, enough food to keep hunger at bay, clothing to keep you comfortable and even bring you a way to get a couple of things you just want.

Tarot

From Tarotx.net – Daily Tarot

Today’s tarot card come from the Rider Waite Tarot Deck.

Death – A Major Arcana

Work: In a Tarot spread, Death often represents an important end to lead to great changes. Usually, the things you need to let go of are your beliefs and limitations. You may hate your job or be under pressure, but you do not want to quit because your income is stable. But eventually, you will be forced to sign the resignation form. Of course, this will lead you to “better things”, but why don’t you choose to leave yourself? You will be able to get good benefits from this.

Sentiments: If you are clinging to an unhappy relationship just because you do not want to lose the feeling of being familiar or you hate to be alone, then it is time to think about everything. You and your lover need a frank conversation. If things do not change, it is time to end. You are brave enough to leave the safety circle and find a much better relationship. But first, you have to face the problem and try to solve it. Do not bang your head against the wall for too long

Finance: You may have to sacrifice a bit to face the upcoming financial difficulties. Do not hesitate to ask for help if necessary. In addition, do not endure everything by yourself. If your money decreases dramatically, do not avoid that. You should identify the problems correctly and then resolve them slowly. Finally, you will gain more financial experience thanks to this lesson.

Health: Stress control is a way to maintain good health during this period. Let’s solve all physical problems and do not avoid them. You should get enough rest and do not poison yourself with alcohol. If you need to relax, you should pay attention to both the physical and mental aspects.

Grouse

“Express yourself through rhythm and movement by drumming and dancing.”

Your first experience of life in a physical body was rhythm and movement: the vibrations of your mother’s heartbeat and her voice, the pulsing of her breathing, and the fluid movement of the placental sea the enveloped you. You would flow with the harmony — or disharmony — of her moods and movements. If you’ve ever tried drumming (or any percussion), dancing or the two together, you they touch something very deep  and ancient in us — something tribal, a deep chord of being where spirit and body coincide.

Rhythm and movement draw out sensual expression and merge with the sensuous world around you. By allowing yourself to surrender to the pulse of whatever rhythm is guiding you, you connect more completely to your body. When you engage in some form of rhythmic dance on a regular basis, you’ll feel more relaxed and in the flow of life. Doing so can re-create and tap into the sensations you felt in the womb, revisiting that place of no thought, where movement moves you effortlessly. So cut loose and enjoy yourself! You have nothing lose but everything to gain.

Hagl/Haal

Sound: “h”
Stands for: Hailstone
Casting meaning: Like a hailstone, the rune Hagl/Haal represents restrictions and restraints. But like a hailstone melting, Hagl/Haal allows for the transformation form something so restricting to something more fluid and easy going.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – More information about Duir

Duir

Gifts, doorways, standing on the shoulders of giants, luck

Tree: Oak (Quercus spp.)

Letter: D

There isn’t a bad side to Duir, even when ill-dignified. Maybe it is because the mighty Oak is king of all trees and therefore king of the Ogham. Drawing Duir means that you will receive, are receiving, or have received a gift. The gift can come in unexpected forms — it could be as simple as a thought or it may be, in rarest of cases, an actual physical gift. Understanding Duir does take the prerequisite ability to appreciate gifts. The modern world is cursed with entire classes of people who take luxuries for granted and for whom gratitude is an untenable concept. Those people cannot be helped by any force other than glacial procession of time and the unimaginable powers that shape it.

Duir’s influence is like a good father or wise old grandpa: generous, kind, wise, full of knowledge and happy to share it, protective, and nurturing. He is a living library. He acts as a guide, creator, and ruler.

Questions when you draw Duir:…

Numerology

From WorldNumerology.com

Twenty

Overly sensitive, intuitive, and vulnerable to criticism. It has emotional problems and can be unstable. It can show weakness and cowardice in the face of challenges but is also highly resilient and a survivor.

I Ching

From IChing.Online.net – From more information about Hexagram 28

Hexagram Twenty-Eight – 28

Ta Kuo / Critical Mass

The Flood rises above the tallest Tree:
Amidst a rising tide of human folly, the Superior Person retires to higher ground, renouncing his world without looking back.

Any direction is better than where you now stand.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Several high-priority concerns demand immediate attention.
All are crucial.
None will be denied.
Yet some demand the denial of others.
Like two atoms seeking to occupy the same space, these irresistible forces and immovable objects threaten to ignite a cataclysm that could irreversibly alter your world.
This is no time for fatal heroics.
You are at Ground Point Zero.
Remove yourself from this situation without delay.
Find sanctuary.
Later you may deal with these concerns on your own terms, from a position of strength.

 

Saturday Witchcraft/Magickal Corrspondences

Witchcraft/Magickal

From WitchSwap.com

Saturday

is associated with Saturn (imagine that!), the planet that rules over responsibility, self-discipline, limitations and boundaries. Zodiac signs include Aquarius as well as Capricorn and Libra (due to the planetary correlation to Saturn). Elements corresponding to Saturday are Earth and Water. Saturn is the Roman God who is known for liberation and dissolution. Because of this, spells having to do with break ups (yeah, controversial and this isn’t’ an endorsement, either, just to be clear), ending a relationship or a partnership of any kind, business, personal, etc. as well as banishment, justice, swift karma and protection spells will all be favorable if performed on a Saturday. Gods/Goddesses: Saturn. Colors: Black and purple. **a black candle is great to use to banish negativity or to reverse a situation, it is not only used in baneful spells**. Angel: Barachiel
