Samhain, October 31, 2011
 
October 31st – November 5th
Queen of Cups
You are full of love and maternal instinct. You lead the way toward healing, connection with others and emotional happiness.
 
November 6th – November 12th
Four of Pentacles
You have the capacity to plan your finances wisely, or to build to ensure a strong foundation, but guard against a tendency toward avaricious greediness, if you have a foundation of loss or insecurity.
 
November 13th – November 19th
The World
You know you are complete, and you feel deep satisfaction and fulfillment. After such good work, it’s time to celebrate!
 
November 20th – November 26th
The Hermit
Turn inward, away from the distraction of the outer world, and seek guidance from a place of solitude. Don’t be tempted to make important pragmatic decisions, as now is the time to withdraw from the distractions of everyday life.
 
November 27th – December 3rd
Two of Pentacles
You may feel the need to seek balance in your life, but the best results may come from trust and playfulness, rather than caution and deliberation. Juggling may be a joy for you, rather than a burden.
 
December 4th – December 10th
The High Priestess
Tap into the power of reflection and depth, and rely on your dreams and your inner wisdom as the gateway to an initiation into higher consciousness.
 
December 11th – December 17th
Seven of Wands
Someone may challenge your leadership or engage you in a struggle, but you will find it exhilarating, as it will strengthen your abilities and your character.
 
December 18th – Yule, December 22nd, 2011
Rebirth
Though you have entered the darkness and sipped from the cup of silence, now you hear the call to awaken, and are re-born. You have chosen vibrant life!

The Bardic Soul, Poetry and Song for the Spirit

The Bardic Soul:
Poetry and Song for the Spirit

Death

by HP Kerritwyn

Cold, stark, stiff, shivering,
I lie down on the ice-frosted grass
Under Her Dark Moon,
Spreading myself out upon Her deep night,
Pulsing now with beginning Desire

My body starts to hum
As my energy flows out,
Deep and warm and dark as blood,
And my Spirit flows
Into finger and toes
And outward, below and above

Shining and Shimmering
and Enticing
I invite Her to fill me, to be
In Me and With Me
And to work Through Me,
As I approach Death

Death surges within,
And I feel Her burst of Clarity, Honest and Power
Surge through my Spirit
As I weave the strands of Forgiveness,
Healing and New Beginnings
Into Rebirth

Dazzled with Her terrible Beauty,
I merge with Her visions
And suspend all sense of Time
As I fuse with Her gifts and blessings
And then, after an unknown time,
Rise up from Death,
Reborn.

HP Kerritwyn was raised Irish Catholic and searched for years for a faith path in which she could feel at home, free of the misogynistic sexism and patriarchy of her original faith trad. She found Celtic Wicca in September of 1997, joined a local coven for a while, and, in June of 1999, joined the White Moon School, which had just then been started by our founder, Luna Blanca.

Kerritwyn was elevated to an HP in the Order in December of 2000, legally ordained in 2003 after the OWM was formally incorporated as a 501 c 3 nonprofit religious corporation, and offers OWM teachings to women in The Sacred Three Goddess School, and to male-to-female transgendered seekers in the Order of the Rainbow Moon.

In mundane life, Kerritwyn is a practicing attorney, and she is married to a biologically male transgendered partner. They live happily on 22 acres in southcentral PA. She was elected by her sister HPs on July 23, 2009 to be the President of the Board of Directors and the Spiritual Head of the Order of the White Moon.
