The night is a gentle fog falling around me, enveloping me, wrapping me in velvet darkness. A cool, inky feeling has settled upon me. My soul is coming out in layers and colors, symbolic gestures that have come before in some ancient life. The autumn is alive and well… the reining queen of the harvest has come to claim her glory.
This is the time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. Our ancestors are among us, cloaked and smiling. Bright shinning stars are lighting up the in-between. Trust your feelings, the shivers, the inspirations, and the insights that have been gifted to you in crystal perfect. This is the time of remembrance. This is the time of parting.
Hold your fears in your hand like little pebbles. Name them, breathe life into them, and then cast them into the fire. Let the cleansing light renew you; relieve you of your worries and concerns. The leaves fall knowing that they will be reborn in the spring. Trust in the process of nature.
I’ve begun pulling cards to tell stories. There are messages in pictures and images. The Universe is speaking to us… imparting wisdom if you hush for a second and bend your ear to listen.
I pulled three cards from the whimsical, Halloween Tarot:
The King of Bats (Swords)
The King of Imps (Wands)
The Four of Pumpkins (coins).
A curious mix of characters have come out to play; the stately kings sitting on their thrones and the benevolent pumpkin creature working diligently in his garden.
The King of Bats
The King of Bats is a reminder to let your thoughts be clear, and in doing so cast away doubt and worry. Your thoughts are powerful charms warding and drawing things to you. Learn to be conscious of what you’re thinking.
The King of Imps
The King of Imps urges get out of your head; channel your thoughts into action. Release the old and begin sewing the new. You have pure energy and potential waiting to be utilized. All you want is within your grasp if you push forward.
The Four of Pumpkins
The Four of Pumpkins whispers…what you begin to sew will bloom and grow into something beautiful and spectacular. You may not see it now, but it will come! Your thoughts are seeds waiting for life, all you need to is meet the Universe half way by pushing your dreams.
Now light a candle to honor your ancestors. Call on the ones you love, and your Spirit Circle to guide, and guard you through the cold, and dark times of Winter.
