Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Moving Into Samhain

Only those who truly love and who are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell in your own enchantment.
– Ben Okri, Nigerian poet and novelist

For weeks now, I have been feeling the big shifting of energy that signals Samhain.  This year, it feels more potent than most other years. I am knowing it in my body, my blood; it comes to me in my dreams.

Is this time also unfolding in profound ways in your life?

Thus, as I mentioned the other day, I am pausing on our Prayer Bead journey, to observe and celebrate this most hallowed turning of the Wheel of the Year. The veils between the realms are opening wide. There are important endings rolling into place.  But what is new is still shrouded in mystery beyond the threshold.

I invite you into a sacred conversation about what matters to you at this time.  The letting go, the transitioning, the receptivity of what will yet be.

Here are a few words that resonate for me… What are your thoughts?

I regret living in a world where sorcerers and soothsayers must live in hiding, and where in any case there are so few genuine soothsayers . . .

As far as I’m concerned, I find it astounding that fortune-tellers, tarot-readers, wizards, sorcerers, necromancers and other Reincarnated Ones have for so long been relegated to the role of mere characters in fables and novels, and that, through one of the most superficial aspects of modern thinking, naivete is defined as having faith in charlatans.

I believe whole-heartedly in charlatans, bonesetters, visionaries, sorcerers and chiromancers, because all these things have being; because, for me, there are no limits, no fixed form to appearances.
~Antonin Artaud, poet and playwright, 1927

    oak leaves spiral down, like snowflakes, no two alike. they open up spaces in the trees, the sky, and i look through them and see farther than before. the gifts of fall; the slow spiral, the opening spaces.

    A beautiful piece Beth. Samhain is a wonderful time of year where things are happening. Just as I put it out there last Samhain. I can only wonder where I will be next year. Maybe not wonder. This is a time to project the future. I know where I will be.
