Divination at Samhain

Finale of the Dark Season

Merry meet all,

Divination is perfect for Samhain. You can perform divination any time, but the time and the energy is ideal at Samhain. 

You can use scrying mirrors, apples, acorns, and pendulums for divination. A scrying mirror has a reflective surface. Again, read the books I recommended for more tips on divination. You gaze into the reflective surface and images may appear. Trust your first impressions. You might see fire, clouds, dark stones, and be ready to receive any messages. A scrying mirror is a mirror painted black. They are easy to make. Clean a mirror of dust and spray paint the mirror black. If you apply five coats of paint, the mirror should have a good surface for scrying. 

Peel an apple, and keep the peel in one long piece. When the peel comes, drop it on the floor. The letter it forms is the initial of your true love. Wait until midnight at Samhain, and slice an apple into nine pieces. Carry the apple pieces into a dark room with a mirror. At midnight, eat the apple slices while gazing into the mirror. When  you eat the ninth piece, an image of your lover should appear in the mirror. 

Fill a cauldron with water. Try using olive oil or another essential oil in the water. The drops that float can reveal something. Or light a candle and spill the drops of wax onto the water. See what shapes the wax forms. The shape can indicate something about a future lover. 

Tie a hazelnut onto a string and use it as a pendulum. Take two nuts, one for yourself and one for your lover, place them on a grate on your fire. If they roast quick, your relationship will end quick. If they burn well, you will have a long and healthy relationship. 

Tarot cards are perfect for divinations as well. Use whatever strikes your fancy. Good luck divining your futures!!

 

Blessed Be,

Moon energy

Merry Meet All,

Monday brings the energy of Gemini in today. Gemini is a playful sign. Gemini meets with the vibration of Ceres earlier today. Ceres has a mothering energy to it. The energy of Ceres fits well, since Monday is a moon-day. Monday is associated with the moon, peace, healing, and psychic awareness.

The colour correspondences are grey, lavender, white and silver. The moon is waxing towards Full Moon. This is the ideal time to draw things to you. Cast a circle tonight under the growing moon and consider what you hope to attract, whether that is a new job, a fertile garden, or romance. Mercury has gone direct, which should make correspondences with other people easier. This is a magically potent time. Take advantage of that. Also, think of what you can offer to the gods/ goddesses you worship or the deity you honour. They shine more favourably on you when you leave offerings.

Soon it will be time to invite the faeries to assist you in your garden. The earth is stirring. The light half of the year is here.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch )O(
