   We have the results of our on-line poll entitled
"How far out of the broomcloset are you?".

C e l e b r a t i o n s !

Oct. - Nov. We're in the middle of the fall season. Samhain is fast approaching with its creative/destructive energies. Samhain (more commonly known as Halloween) is the third and final harvest festival. November 1 is the beginning of the Celtic New Year and most pagans still celebrate it as the end and beginning of a new year. During this time the veil between worlds is at its thinnest.That's why Halloween is so well known for the faeries and other mystical creatures that roam about. This is a time for working to manifest our dreams; to destroy negative limitations and start anew. Divination and honoring the dead are also common practices this season. In the southern hemisphere,pagans are celebrating Beltane which is a fertility holiday.Witches dance to symbolically nourish plant life.Spring is at its peak. Union and love between the Goddess and God.The last stop on the road to summer.
