Yup, this is truly my favorite time of the year and I’ve been enjoying it thoroughly. Wishing you and yours a most wickedly awesome Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve and Samhain!
On this Hallows’ eve
The tricksters are out to play.
Light your candles and
Dance with the shadows!
The Halloween Tarot made it’s appearance…
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
~ William Shakespeare
“How else could it have occurred to man to divide the cosmos, on the analogy of day and night, summer and winter, into a bright day-world and a dark night-world peopled with fabulous monsters, unless he had the prototype of such a division in himself, in the polarity between the conscious and the invisible and unknowable unconscious?” ~ Carl Jung
“Tom Skelton shivered. Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows’ Eve. Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet. Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades. From kitchen windows drifted two pumpkin smells: gourds being cut, pies being baked.” ~ Ray Bradbury, The Halloween Tree
