the natural world is in decline. The sun fades as darkness
overcomes the light. The harvest is over, leaving dead
stalks in the fields. Burrowing animals have gone underground.
The birds and insects have taken to wing and abandoned
us to the growing chill.
People traditionally have turned their
thoughts to death in October as they honor the ancestors
who have walked the earth before us.
This is a good time to burn Patchouli
Root (HERBS) to focus your attention on your roots
and ground us for the coming cold. It is also an excellent
time to burn Candles
(CANDLES and BURNERS) of any type in order to focus on
the light within the darkness. It is better to light one
candle than to curse the dark!
Since so many people dread the dark
season, it is good to protect yourself against low feelings
and depression. Keep a Rose
of Jericho (HERBS), some Black
Salt (CLEANSING) or Magic
Eggs (CHARMS) in your home or office to ward off a
dark, negativity of mind. Or use any of the Protection Charms on the CHARMS PAGE to keep you safe from the
imagined boogey men who dwell in the dark.
(GODDESS) the Egyptian nocturnal black cat goddess is
the perfect companion in the season of low light. And
(The Miraculous One), (GODDESS) with her hands of generative
light, will help you through till spring.
Use the dark and quiet to your advantage
and dive into that tunnel that leads you to your Self.
