Tonight I begin my celebration of Samhain at midnight.
At 12 o'clock,
I will light a candle to honor The Goddess.
My altar will be dressed with offerings of
Pomegranate, Apples, Honey.
Each of which I will taste.
I will sit in quiet meditation
and remember my loved ones
who have passed over.
I will honor the Dark,
The coming of Winter soon to be.
I will Honor The Goddess
In her aspect as Dark Mother.
For me, She is Hecate.
For others She is Inanna, Cerridwen
Kali, Demeter, Morrigan
We each honor Her our own way.
For My family
Tomorrow's celebration will begin with Dinner.
A place will be set for those who have passed.
A meal will be set out for Her creatures that
reside in the woods.
Following the meal,
My guests will have an opportunity
to honor their ancestors.
We will finish the evening with Candle magick
and Readings for the coming year.
However you celebrate,
Whomever you Honor,
May The coming of the Winter months
Go gently By.
May The Coming Year be filled with promise
and May you always Honor Her.
