We got to go back to colorado for samhain and celebrate with my dear tuatha. I sadly didn’t get any pictures of the circle or the ceromony this year but it went very well.
surrounded by our closests friends and the clear colorado night, the moon and our ancestors gazed upon us. Thrice we circles the fire pit decorated with leaves and blue corn meal in designs to hurry the dear spirits to join us. The women lit the fire with passion and encouraged it into life, into the new year. We each placed offerings of nuts, bread and fruit into the flames and called out our dear ones names in our hearts or outloud. The circle was opened and all our honored dead, guiding spirits and dear people were invited to join our celebration. We broke with a cheer and a handful of dragon’s blood all thrown in at once.
Good food and good stories were shared thru the night and sweet friendships’ fire was stoked.
It was a lovely night and a lovely visit with the new years promise to persue fairy seership in my heart and to listen to my intuition more.
One can never take the joys my dear tuatha brings me and even hundreds of miles away they illuminate the things in myself that I have forgotten. It is my new years persuit to not ignore myself and my self-knowledge so much.
