Elemental Correspondence Earth and Air, Fire and Water

Earth, fire, water and air. the four elements and how they are used for ritual.

Not all witches use elemental correspondences, and among those who do, there is a great deal of variation. The most common elements used in Wicca and witchcraft are earth, air, fire, and water. Spirit is often added to acknowledge the spiritual component of them all. You will have to experiment to find what works best for you.

When invoking the elements, they are often associated with the cardinal directions, often with Air in the East, Fire in the South, Water in the West, and Earth in the North. However, this is by no means the only possibility. The elements themselves may vary as well. For example, some Celtic traditions use earth, sky, and water, and others use the cosmological realms of Underworld, Earth and Sky.

Thus, the correspondences listed within this page provide only one possibility among many. The sources for these correspondences include Scott Cunningham, Silver Ravenwolf, Amber Wolfe, Yasmine Galenorn, and Branwen’s Book of Shadows which undoubtedly owes credit to dozens of unnamed sources. Books by these renowned authors can be purchased though out online shop for further study.

Daily Horoscope

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 1:30 PM EDT today (10:30 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Ex-partners and old friends are back in your world again. You might encounter these people in person or through social media. Perhaps, you are thinking about them or they appear in your dreams? Be patient with those who are closest to you at this time.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Allow extra time in your work or your job because Mercury retrograde might trip you up. This is why you are encountering silly errors, mixed-up communications, missed appointments and misplaced paperwork. Late deliveries and delays will also be par for the course. (Yikes!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Expect to hear from old flames either today or sometime in the next few weeks. (This might already have happened.) You might encounter these people in person or online or in your thoughts or dreams. Some kind of previous scenario with your kids might also reoccur.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today (or this week) you might be in contact with relatives you haven’t seen for a while. They might be visiting you. Family reunions might also be taking place because it’s old home week for many of you due to the influence of Mercury retrograde.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This current Mercury retrograde will wreak havoc with transportation plans for your sign. Be proactive about taking care of your car. Allow extra time when taking public transportation. Confused communications, missed appointments and misplaced items are classic now. Frustrating? Yes!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Financial transactions might be delayed now. Certainly, cheques in the mail will be late. This is because Mercury retrograde is taking place in your House of Money. Be smart and double check everything to do with cash flow and possessions to avoid errors and slipups.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have a lot of energy now because the Sun and fiery Mars are in your sign. However, Mercury retrograde is also taking place in Libra, which means people from your past are back in your world. In addition, it’s easy for you to forget things, misplace things, lose things and miss appointments. Courage!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Although Mercury retrograde is frustrating for most signs, it can be a useful thing for your sign because it will actually help you do research and discover the answers to old questions and solutions to old problems. Dig deep and study the past to learn what you can.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Expect to run into old friends now. You might also encounter members of groups, clubs and organizations from your past. This could give you an opportunity to clarify things and catch up on old history. It might be useful for you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Mercury retrograde is taking place at the top of your chart, which means you might be in touch with parents, bosses and teachers as well as authority figures from your past. This could be a learning experience for you. Or perhaps you want to avoid these people? Either way – it’s your choice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a wonderful day (and week) to finish important papers, manuscripts and studies. In fact, it will be easy to study the past or study history or do research based on information from the past. However, travel plans might be delayed or cancelled.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Disputes about shared property are possible at this time. However, Mercury retrograde will help you to clear up past issues and finish old work regarding wills, inheritances, estates, taxes, debt, insurance issues and anything to do with jointly-held property.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress, singer Jane Krakowski (1968) shares your birthday today. You are warm, caring and charming. You like to cooperate with people to get along.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS ON OCTOBER 11, then you are fun to be around as you are funny and make interesting conversations. You love sports or being physically active. Because of your positive and bubbling personality, people may find it hard to say “no” to you. The October 11th birthday zodiac sign is Libra – The Scales.

Additionally, you value your friendships, but you tend to exaggerate the truth a little or avoid certain questions especially when you are put on the spot. Mainly, it’s to protect someone’s feelings.

As a Libra birthday person, you are social and well-liked among your peers and business associates. However, it makes for awkward moments when you are surrounded by too many people.

The 11th October birthday personality finds it hard to make snap decisions or decisions of any kind. Putting pressure on this Libran to come up with an answer sometimes will find them making no decision at all. You are perhaps the most accommodating zodiac sign of them all. You tend to seek harmony and peace within your family and friends.

The October 11 birthday horoscope predicts that you are thoughtful people who can have a serious side to their playfulness. You don’t play when it comes to your work or when it comes to achieving your goals. You stay motivated and are often found helping someone on your way up.

The 11 October zodiac birthday person can’t stand to see anyone suffering or in pain. You will give people the shirt off your backs if it meant someone will be better of because of it. You are no stranger to sacrifice and giving. Your friends have great respect for you because of this.

Additionally, these October 11 birthday characteristics are useful when it comes to choosing a career. You are a natural caregiver and would do well in social services. Your talents are such that you’d make a remarkable teacher or therapist.

However, you like your freedom and would be a superior asset to anyone as an employee not restricted to a desk or common rules of confinement. For this reason, you may want to work for yourself. The October 11 birthday personality is highly creative and could make use of these skills.

The personal finances of someone who is born today are that you work for your money and may find it easy to save for the future. On the other hand, you may be a spender leaving very little for the retirement fund.

If today October 11 is your birthday, your bank account will usually fluctuate depending on what you want out of life at the moment. You have a tendency to like the finer things in life. The only way to have this is to buy it or spend money to enjoy a good quality of life. Mainly, your career choice is based on salary and benefits.

The 11 October birthday astrology analysis shows that you take good care of yourself. You balance work and home equally. Taking care to ensure you work out regularly and eat right, you feel better and have less stress because of it. You are typically stable minded and are affectionate, but you are logical and practical.

The October 11 birthday meanings also suggest that this Libra will likely recycle paper and plastic. The world outside can be an environmental challenge, but you do your part to reduce the toxins and poisons. Doing even a small part singularly could collectively be a huge contribution.

For you, drinking water will greatly increase your chances of staying hydrated and flushed. You need to protect your kidneys and urinary systems more than other zodiac signs.

All Signs

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” (Cicero said this 2000 years ago.) This is timely because it’s Thanksgiving in Canada! The perfect time to remind ourselves why we can be grateful. Let’s look at the cycles of lucky Jupiter, to identify the opportunities we have now and for the rest of the year. Jupiter takes 12 years to go through all the 12 signs, staying in each sign for a year. This year, Jupiter is in Aquarius (with the exception of May, June and July when it slipped into Pisces). Jupiter was last in Aquarius in 2009. The next time it will be in Aquarius is 2033. Jupiter represents expansion, wealth, wisdom and joy. (Some called Jupiter Jove, hence the word jovial.) So, what is your good fortune for this year? Read on MacDuff!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This year, Jupiter is in your House of Friendships, which is good news because Jupiter is constantly energizing and expanding your relations with friends as well as groups and organizations. This is why you are and will continue to be more active with friends. It’s also why you will benefit friends and they will benefit and help you. (Bonus!) Likewise, in your dealings with organizations, this year, you might take a leadership role or be more active in networking. Jupiter will also fill you with an urge to fulfill your dreams and goals. You might earn more money from a business or career. Oh yeah, we like Jupiter!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Once every 12 years, lucky Jupiter crosses the top of your chart, making you look successful in the eyes of others. This is happening this year! Generally, the reason for this is you are enjoying good fortune in your profession and career. Your social status and reputation are shining. You might get a promotion at work. Public recognition will earn you the respect of your peers. You might have a chance to change your field of work to medicine and healing, the law, higher education or travel. Exciting work-related travel will broaden your world. The key to success is to be honest and generous. Enjoy your dazzling limelight this year!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be grateful that you can expand your world through travel and chance to learn about different cultures and people with diverse backgrounds. You will learn about the power of advertising and marketing and the use of multimedia. Your work or your business might benefit through foreign interests and other cultures. Educational and travel opportunities will come your way. This year you are learning real and useful information. Writing will flow more easily and authors will get favourable feedback. You are blessed with a smorgasbord of new ideas, opportunities to travel and personal development through human potential movements. Ah yes, your cup is full.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This year Jupiter is making it easy for you to get help and assistance from others. For example, it’s a strong time to borrow money or get a loan or a mortgage because doors will open for you. You might get benefits through taxes, shared resources, inheritances and jointly-held property. These windfalls could lead to a new home or a new car – something that makes you happy. In turn, you will be in a better position to help loved ones. Because these benefits ease tension, and also because success is sexy, many of you will enjoy a more passionate sex life. (Wow.) Who knew?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This year, Jupiter is opposite your sign – something that happens only once every 12 years. This boosts your ability to make a great impression on your public this year. You will win their approval! You will also enjoy happier relations with spouses, partners and close friends. Financial benefits might come to you through partnerships. (Jupiter is wealth.) This is a classic time for a strong mutual support between you and a partner – hence, a strong mutual appreciation of each other. Good publicity and increased popularity are also likely. (Good year to sign contracts.) You will be grateful for the benefits of your close relationships and what a help they are to you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The benefits you’re receiving this year from Jupiter are practical and meaningful. For starters, this year you can improve your health. This could happen in a variety of ways but the end result will be a positive one. During this year, you can also improve your job. You can improve your existing job, or get a better job. Your nasty boss will be transferred to Timbuktu. Note: If you are unhappy in your job – be confident that you can get a better job because this is your best chance in over a decade to do so. For some, this might sound minor but it isn’t – you will receive rewarding enjoyment through pets this year. This can be precious and special. Use these blessings to your advantage!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This year Jupiter has a twofold influence that is slightly contradictory. It makes this year flow easily for you; and promote your health and feelings of well-being. It’s a good year for financial matters (Jupiter is wealth); and it promotes travel! However, this year, Jupiter is sitting in the most playful part of your chart, thereby encouraging your creative self-expression. That’s why you have the courage to be who you are without fear or apology. Relations with kids will be excellent and rewarding. It’s a fabulous year for a vacation. It’s a great year for romance. It’s also a year that is rich in opportunities for personal growth and increased wisdom. You really are a winner!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This year, Jupiter will give tremendous support and rewards to everything related to your home, family and personal life. You will find ways to make where you live more attractive. You might redecorate or renovate. Some of you will rent something different that is better or preferable. Others will buy something that you like better. Whatever the case, you will improve your living arrangement this year – no question. And you will be happier where you live! In the same way, relationships with family members will improve and everyone will be more generous to each other. You will welcome this chance to put down roots and feel a source of support and comfort in your life. Nicely done!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Lucky Jupiter is your ruler, which is why you’re an optimist. Because Jupiter rules foreign countries, you are also the traveller of the zodiac. The placement of Jupiter this year is critical because more than any other sign, you need physical activity (especially outdoors) and a positive attitude. These are survival issues for you. You can’t be cooped up! You can’t be discouraged! Fortunately, lucky Jupiter is going through the part of your house that affects your everyday activity and your daily outlook on life. This boots your positive thinking – every day! It increases your daily contacts with others. It brings travel opportunities and encourages you to make big plans! (Lucky you.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your relationship with Jupiter this year is most fortunate! Jupiter is the planet associated with wealth, expansion and increase; and this year, Jupiter is sitting in your House of Money! In the words of Eric Idle, “Say no more!” This is your year to get richer! You might get a raise. You might get a better paying job. You might inherit. Something will happen that makes you feel richer. (You might even buy something special that makes you feel richer.) Lady Luck is with you this year and abundance will rain on you! Of course, wealth is relative. Money and stuff are wealth. Spending less than you earn is wealth. Health is wealth. Time is wealth. A loving relationship is wealth. Wealth is having few wants.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This year, Jupiter is in your sign. The last time this happened was 2009; the next time it will occur will be 2033. This is a fortunate year for you because Jupiter is expanding your world and helping you to develop wisdom, courage and self-confidence. New ideas will abound! Your priorities will shift. This year is the beginning a new 12-year cycle of personal growth. (Time to let out another pleat in the shower curtain?) Seriously, this is major! People and resources will be attracted to you. Take advantage of this! It’s time to give up childish prejudices and get in touch with deeper dimensions and start to work toward being the best that you can be. Why be less? Count your blessings!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This year, lucky Jupiter is hiding in your chart to make its debut in your sign in 2022. It briefly visited Pisces in May, June and July this year but that was just a dress rehearsal. Jupiter is associated with expansion, wisdom, belief systems, higher education, publishing, jurisprudence and whatever it is that binds societies together. Meanwhile, the place where it is hiding in your chart is all about your subconscious and your spirituality. This year you are on a quest to discover what is meaningful in your life. You will receive recognition next year. This year is time to reflect. Act on your urge to help others by volunteering or helping daily contacts. Therapy and spiritual healing can be profound.

Birthday Horoscope

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope 

OCTOBER 9 birthday horoscope says that you are known as the peacemaker. Getting down to the truth of matters is a gift you were born with as a Libra. Generally, you are a good person with very likable qualities. You hate arguments and fights of any sort.

If today is your birthday, you are compassionate people who can be aggressive when need be. Usually, you are a creative person who is open-minded. As a negative, you can be a moody individual who is overbearing and forceful.

You like controversial topics as you are smart and can hold a conversation with almost anyone. You have this way with people, and you know how to articulate your thoughts and feelings.

When in a relationship, you hold your partner close and take care of those who take care of you. You are likely the one who takes care of everyone with a complaint. This quality makes the October 9th birthday personality a responsible Libra. Keeping things balanced is extremely important to you.

It is typical of this Libra birthday person to be indecisive. Trying to maintain accord and equal standing is an effort for someone born today. You take things lightly. If you don’t have to make a difficult decision, then you don’t. The October 9 birthday characteristics show that you can see both sides of an argument or a situation.

The October 9 horoscope predicts that you are someone who demands a lot from your friends. While you want someone who is beautiful on the outside, you need to have the same qualities in your lover’s attitude.

You want to have a relationship that is based on truth, loyalty, and security. You tend to be a spiritual person and look for that in a soul mate. Librans born on this day can be emotional people who are usually easily frustrated.

Helping others seem to be your forte, however, receiving help is not. The October 9 zodiac show that you are an independent person who can’t seem to open up to others as they do to you. No one expects you to be perfect but you, Libra. It’s okay to show your vulnerability.

If today October 9 is your birthday, you may have vivid memories of your childhood. Some of these memories may not be good ones, but you cherish those times as well. After all, without it, you would not be the person you are today. You, as a parent, will do well by your children. It is easy for you to empathize with them as you can put yourself in their shoes.

As far as your health is concerned, you have little interest in having a fit or tight body. More often than not, you dislike following a set schedule to work out but enjoy being on the walking trial or doing something less than intensely physical.

This can be good especially if you watch what you eat and drink plenty of water. Drinking water can extract toxins from your body and well as replenish minerals lost.

Let’s talk about your career. The October 9 birthday personality are often found in professions that deal with money management or the entertainment industry. You seem to have a knack for handling investments and returns although money is not especially important to you. For you, it’s a means of buying the necessities of life.

It could be of benefit to choosing this as a profession since you are dedicated to helping others anyway. Additionally, a position as a counselor for teens is an exceptional idea as well. You are a person who is protective of his or her freedom. You should think about this as you make your decision for a career. It may take you till mid-life to decide this, but it is well worth it if you could help young people.

The October 9 astrology forecasts that you are accommodating and concerned about keeping the peace. You will tend to dislike those who are conservative. You are, however, a master at dragging your feet. You have natural abilities that find you in social work. You don’t like to follow a work out routine as you value your freedom. However, you need to keep yearly appointments for your checkups.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today until 11 PM PDT. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Check banking details and anything to do with shared property and inheritances because something unexpected might impact these areas. When it comes to money, especially your relationship with other people’s wealth, it’s important to know what’s happening.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A partner or close friend might throw you a curveball this morning (or later today), so expect the unexpected, which of course, is impossible to do. If you are caught off guard, don’t just “react”. Give yourself a moment to process things before you respond.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A glitch might take place today related to your job or your health or your pet. This means you have to be aware and alert. It might be wise to give yourself extra time so that you have wiggle room to cope with the unexpected. (Could be a glitch with technology or a changed schedule.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Social plans might suddenly change today – be prepared for this. Likewise, this same unpredictable “influence” could create a lovers’ spat. (Patience is the key.) This is also a mildly accident-prone influence for your kids so be vigilant and keep your eyes open.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be patient with family members this morning to avoid an argument because something unexpected will impact your home routine. Small appliances might break down or a minor breakage could occur. Fortunately, it’s minor even though it might be frustrating. Stay chill.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign. However, you might also have some breakthrough ideas or epiphanies about something? Unexpected news, new faces, an unexpected short trip – it’s a stimulating day!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Keep an eye on your money and assets today. Ka-ching! For starters, you might find money; or you might lose money. Protect what you own against loss, theft or damage because something unexpected will impact your wealth – hopefully, in a minor way.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign sitting directly opposite unpredictable Uranus, which makes you impulsive and emotionally excitable. You will crave some stimulation today, which is why you’ll be tempted to stir the pot – just to see what happens! (You devil.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a restless day for you because the Moon is hiding in your chart and yet, it is stimulated by Uranus, which means you feel like you’re all dressed up with no place to go. Some secretive or hidden news might surprise you. Because you feel edgy, make an effort to be calm when talking to others.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A friend (perhaps a female) might say or do something that catches you off guard today. Or possibly, you will meet someone new who is avant-garde or unusual in some way. In either case, friends or members of groups will surprise you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Tread carefully when dealing with parents, bosses, teachers and the police today because you can’t predict what they might say or do. You might be caught off guard or busted! They might trigger feelings of rebellion within you. Stay calm and above all, remain polite. (Don’t escalate things.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel plans might be delayed or cancelled today. Or perhaps, you suddenly have to travel when you didn’t expect to do so? Likewise, school plans might change. Possibly, a professor or guru-figure in your life will surprise you in some way. The media might have unexpected news.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Martin Henderson (1974) shares your birthday today. You are solid, reliable and hard-working. You respect justice and fair play. You are also creative and imaginative; and you have an excellent sense of humour. This year exciting changes are taking place that will create more freedom for you. Be courageous about embracing change. Be open to exploring new directions as well as personal growth. Travel and expand your horizons!

Birthday Horoscope

OCTOBER 8 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Libra who is likely to be a social butterfly. Paying close attention to the little things, you make a good friend and lover. Professionally, this is an asset as well. You have a way with people and cannot be influenced by insincere words or actions. You love being around people who appreciate you.

If today is your birthday, you tend to be your boss. Ambitious and enterprising can be the words your friends use to describe this October 8th birthday personality. Mostly, you are a considerate and compassionate person who meets people easily. You love being out in a crowd enjoying your leisure time away from routine.

As a Libra born on this birthday, you take relationships seriously and feel the need to lend a hand to those less fortunate than you. You seem to find the time to help a lot of people as they come to you for comfort and support.

In short, this zodiac birthday person is naturally caring. People say that you are not critical of their shortcomings and this is what attracts them to you.

The October 8th horoscope predicts that normally you appreciate nature and want harmony in all things. You are a tolerant person with self-discipline. Those qualities identify you as being a unique Libra. As you set realistic goals for success, you are driven to achieve what most people only dream about.

However, these Libra birthday people tend to keep their dreams to themselves as they are private when it comes to emotions. This could be due to your insecurities and lack of trust. At some time in your life, you may find it necessary to open up to those who love you and have your best interest at heart. This could only help you in your journey to financial freedom.

If we talked about the health of the October 8 born, we’d say that you should learn how to deal with stress successfully. Being stressed out, you tend not to eat, and when you do, it’s very little of the wrong things. Other times, you are wolfing it down.

You could suffer from digestive issues as well and not even sleep well because of it. So many sleep aids are out there to help you relieve yourself of these problems. But it may be of benefit to try a natural remedy as opposed to over the counter medicine.

The October 8 astrology analysis predicts that you are likely to be in a profession related to things involving art. From time to time, you dabble in investments and find yourself in a prosperous situation because of it. Maybe this is a sign that you could be successful at banking or trading stock.

The October 8 zodiac person has a business mind as you are not afraid of a challenge or taking a risk. With your talents and interests, you would do well in some professions. Some of which could be in social work or law enforcement.

You could, also, be interested in the media or rather in the entertainment industry. There are a lot of Librans in the performing arts; you could be one of them. If you were to make it big, you’d still be a down-to-earth person who takes life a day at a time.

What your birthday October 8 says about you is that you have this attitude toward romance as well. You probably will marry your first love and stay with that person forever. If for some reason it doesn’t last, you may take your time in dating again. You are serious when it comes to love and to protect your heart.

As a parent, this October 8 birthday personality would prefer to have a large family. You would be a parent likely to be the provider and the glue that holds it all together. You are a fair person, and that quality really shows as you discipline your children. You are also affectionate and very understanding parents.

The October 8th horoscope shows that you have a creative side that can solve problems often, leaving people with a smile on their faces. You are just plain silly and funny. People love you because of this. It’s also hard to stay mad at you. You always end up pleasing everyone.

Besides, you are an attractive person who’s pleasant to be around and you have a mysterious side. Mostly though, people born on this birthday October 8, are practical and logical people who work hard to maintain relationships and friendships. Untypical of other Librans, you can make your own decisions.

The Origins of Halloween by Silver RavenWolf

Harvest Moon, velvet sky, pumpkins glowing, children laughing, costumes, candy, scary stories—just where did this autumn gaiety begin? Let’s look through those cobwebby corridors of time to unearth the exciting genealogy of the American Celebration we call Halloween!

Nothing is ever as simple as it seems—especially when dealing with history. Too often events and circumstances of our past were written or re-written by people who, for whatever reason, operated under an agenda, or simply wanted history to reflect how it should have been, rather than how it was. How, then, do we determine what is fact and what is fiction? In some cases, we can’t. In other situations, we dig.

The Celts

Many historians feel that the greatest strength in the Celtic people lies in their collective mythos. Wading through the romanticism to find unmodified information can prove a tricky endeavor. The earliest archaeological evidence we have of the Celts rest in France and Western Germany.  The Celtic people moved into Spain, Britain, and Switzerland between the fifth and first century BCE. They even ransacked Rome in 390 BCE.

The Celtic peoples celebrated four festivals called fire festivals–commonly know today as Samhain, Oimelc (Imbolc), Beltane, and Lughnasadh. Samhain (pronounced sow-in, sow rhymes with now) was the first and foremost a harvest festival relating to animal husbandry and preparations for the winter months. Fire is an element of cleaning, a vehicle of eradication, so it is not unlikely that fire would work itself into any type of religious celebration. Fire among the ancient peoples often represented an aspect of the divine.

What does the word Samhain mean? Well, we know what it doesn’t mean. There is no archeological or literary evidence of a Celtic god by the name of Samhain. This little slip of fact appears to have begum in the 1700s and continues in some misinformed publications today. The word Samhain actually means “summers end”.

So, where did this Lord of the Dead thing come in? Over time, Samhain took on a religious significance through ministrations of the Druids (the clergy of the Celt’s). Legends indicate that on Samhain all the hearth fires in Ireland were doused and then lit again from a central fire maintained by the Druids at Tlachtga. To the Celts, Samhain was a turning point from light into darkness, and it was thought that this break or fissure created easier access to their land of the dead, Tir nan Og.

The Druids

We need to know a little bit about the Druids to continue with our history of Halloween. The Druids were versed in all learning and were considered to have the gift of prophecy. They functioned as judge, ambassadors, healers, and religious leaders. The Druids first named the holiday Samhain.

 Feast of the Dead

As the Celtic religious system solidified so did the beliefs of the Celts concerning the dead—as has occurred in all religions, before and after the Celts. Since the turning points of the year were considered fissures in time and space, the Celts believe that the dead they loved so dearly could travel through time and space and return from Tir nan Og to visit them. The custom of leaving food at the table (the birth part of the treat part of trick-or-treat) was a gesture of welcome to the departed. From these visits came the belief that those who had gone beyond the land of the living could provide information on past or future events. This is how divination became associated with Samhain.

The Celts did not believe in devils or demons, but they did believe in the Fairy Folk, whom they thought inhabited the land of the dead (the land in-between). Fairies were thought to be resentful of humankind for taking over their land. Because time and space could be conquered on Samhain, fairies were said to roam countryside creating mischief and kidnapping a human or two now and then—just for fun, you understand.—except the humans never came back. Here then is the root of the scary stuff associated with Halloween. The mischief, of course, was caused by living humans, and accepted by the Celts as a psychological release before the onset of winter gloom—though I doubt they would explain it in those terms.

Is it odd, gross, or unusual that a group of people should set aside a day for the dead? Nope. Different cultures and religions have followed such a practice for centuries. Let’s get on our broom again and check out Rome and its contributions to Halloween.

Is it odd, gross, or unusual that a group of people should set aside a day for the dead? Nope. Different cultures and religions have followed such a practice for centuries. Let’s get on our broom again and check out Rome and its contributions to Halloween.

A Fly-BY of Ancient Rome

Rome had the habit of changing rulers as many times as you empty the lint trap in your dryer. Between 14 and 37 CE, Christianity had begun its rise in Rome. By 41 CE, Claudius had distinguished himself with the conquest of Britain. The Romans also had a harvest festival, so the Celts didn’t have much trouble blending the two holidays together after they came into contact with the Romans. It was around 314 CE when Constantine the Great declared the Roman Empire to be Christian, and the fate of Samhain and Druids was sealed.

 The Advent of Christianity

By the fourth and fifth centuries , Celtic Christianity had oozed into Ireland. St. Patrick has his hands full, and here is where the kettle starts to boil. At, first, the Pagans openly welcomed Christianity, but as Christianity filtered into the Celtic system, church officials had a few problems—mainly the Celtics didn’t want up their holidays or folk practices. The people were not willing to throw out traditions that were ingrained into their social structure. If you can’t get someone to completely change, what do you do? Compromise. And that’s exactly what happened. Samhain was changed to All Hollow’s Eve. To make the Pagan peoples adhere more closely to this new religion of Christianity, the clergy of the day taught the peasants that fairies were really demons and devils (remember, a concept totally unknown to Celtic belief or history) and their beloved dead were horrid ghosts and ghouls. The early Christian erroneously associated the Celtic land of the dead with the Christian concept of Hell.

To help the belief in Christianity along, Druids priestess were systematically murdered. Early Christians also taught the area peasants that their Lord of the Underworld was in fact Satan, which is ridiculous, as the two mythos don’t have anything in common. It appears that Christians misunderstood what the word Samhain meant: because the peasants use this celebration to honor the dead, Christians assumed that Samhain was the incorrect pronunciation of a Pagan deity in the Bible, recorded as Samuel, from the Semitic Sammael, meaning God of the under world.

The Witches

So far, we’ve talked about the land of the dead, how the early Christians managed to superimpose Satan onto Samhain, and how fairies got zapped into demons, but there has been no mention of Witches, commonly associated in our time with Halloween. Where did Witches come from?

During the Dark Ages, the Church sought to eradicate the Pagans and wise women from the countryside so that the church could amass both power and property. First, they had to devalue women because women kept the holy days, trained the children, and provided the cohesive socialization of the culture, thus women held the power to shape society. The church taught, among other things, that women had no souls. Once this teaching had occurred, it was only a small step to make them inhuman, and the Church was able to incite the superstitious populace.

The Celtic women were the strong hold of the family environment, and although the Celts accepted Christianity at first, they did not want to give up their family traditions or their lifestyle. The Church was not into free thinking—therefore anything that did not follow the church dictates was evil. Hence, the Witches (really the women) became evil. Since Samhain was a primary festival of the Celts and the Church had already determined that Samhain was evil, the association between Witches and Halloween was born.

All Saints’ Day / All Hallow’s EVE / Halloween

All Saints’ Day and All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) were first introduced in the seventh century CE. All Saints’ Day was originally celebrated in the spring. The date was changed to November 1 to supplant Pagan beliefs because those pesky Pagans just refused to cough up their original Samhain. The day was to honor God and all his saints, known and unknown. All Saints’ Day later became Hallowmass, a mass to honor the dead. The Eve of All Hallow’s Day, October 31, became All Hallow’s Eve, which evolved into the word Hallowe’en. Although the church wished this time to be one of somber prayer and quite custom, the Celtics continued their customary bonfires and fortune telling.

All Souls’ Day is a bit different. This festival falls on November 2, a day to offer prayers and alms to assist the souls of those departed that manage to get stuck in purgatory, an in-between place that is neither heaven nor hell. Over the succeeding centuries, Halloween, like Christmas, picked up various customs and discarded others, depending on the complex socialization of the times and religious dictates.

Halloween Comes to America

Our first inkling of Halloween coming to America revolves not around a specific set of people (many indicate the Irish) but with William Penn’s motley collection of refugees from Europe. In 1663, Penn wrote a promotional tract about the Americans. As a result, fifty ships dropped the anchors in the Delaware River. They discharged persecuted souls from England, Ireland, Wales, and the Rhineland (now Germany). Collectively, the Germans and Irish shared Celtic heritage. Therefore many of the folk customs resonated together—including Halloween.

From 1684 through 1930, Halloween was more a time for tricking rather than for treating. Many of the tricks the German and Irish communities became universal, such as overturning outhouses, dismantling a wagon and putting it back together on top of a house or barn, and tying cows to church bells. The tricks often served as social function, such as mildly chastising a neighbor who exhibited antisocial behavior.

By 1910, several American manufactures were making or importing party products just for the American holiday Halloween. From noisemakers to costumes, a new holiday meant new business and an opportunity to make money.

The drawback to the new holiday came in the form of the “declared” Mischief Night, Goblin Night, or Devil’s night on October 30. Minor offenses, such as trying several garbage cans together and hanging them from a light pole, soaping windows with lard, and later, bars of hand soap, abounded. As the pranks grew to vandalism shopkeepers would bribe youngsters to ward off destruction of their property.

In an effort to stop the criminal behavior, the Boy Scouts, in conjunction with local town councils, cities, boroughs, instituted the custom of Trick-or-Treat night to help keep youngsters from naughty practices. By the 1930s the custom of trick-or-treating was well entrenched in our American culture. Halloween, like Christmas, became a holiday for children, and parents strove to make the holiday as much fun as possible for the enjoyment of their youngsters.

During he 1950s. ’60s, and ’70s our American Halloween stayed primarily the same, but in the ’70s and ’80s, with a recession coupled by a candy scare, groups and organizations once again sought to find appropriate avenues to make Halloween safe for America’s children. Halloween practices extended through the entire month of October. Haunted houses, parties, hay rides, plays, story hours, and numerous other events were held throughout the month.

In the mid-to-late 1990s certain sects of the Protestant Christian church declared war on Halloween. using the same erroneous propaganda cultivated hundreds of years ago. Other groups size Halloween for their own political agendas—hosting haunted houses showing aborted babies, drug addicts, and other modern day violent situations. This did not go over well, as the holiday had become an event primarily for children, not adult political issues. Radical Christian groups said that the holiday was Satanic—which, as we’ve seen from our research, is a bizarre and fantastic claim, based on misinformation, politicking, personal agendas and fear. With America’s policy of separation of church and state the battle for destroying Halloween in the United States is an uphill battle.

The original Samhain marked the the close of the agriculture season and functional third harvest festival. In America, Halloween has become the first holiday in our end-of-year rush for partied gaiety. Our Halloween functions as the opening of the three-month-long celebratory fest that includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, and Chanukkah, and ends with the popular American New Year.

As our children crave pumpkins with delightful chatter, adults find solace in a night when they can be whatever they want to be. We have little doubt about the joy this holiday bring to the American people. I am sure we will forever love the haunted house, the harvest Moon, the thrills and chills of a well-wrought tale—and, of course, the deliciously scary things that go EEEEK! in the night.

 Harvest Moon, velvet sky, pumpkins glowing, children laughing, costumes, candy, scary stories—just where did this autumn gaiety begin? Let’s look through those cobwebby corridors of time to unearth the exciting genealogy of the American Celebration we call Halloween!
