Thoughts and attitudes join us in combination with The Hearthfire. We’re reminded us to join in and celebrate, which can help address thoughts towards others.
Quite often of late, we’ve had the Tarot and the Camelot Oracle say, give, give, give. This week, with Pelles, we’ve been reminded to replenish our thoughts, our inner-selves and it seems that not only does The Wildwood agree, but it’s even saying: don’t do this alone!
The nights are drawing in, the air is cooler, the leaves are falling from the trees and the rain comes pounding down (down one of my chimney’s, as it happens!) and so having fnu on our own isn’t so appealing. However, light a fire, throw in some good company, food, drink and you’ve a party in the making!
However, it isn’t always adults that you have to have fun with! What of the children? We’re entering “that time of year” where serious pagans and witches think about those that have passed, how thin the veil between our worlds is. Children have no such bothers or concerns. They’re interested in their sweets, toffee apples, dressing up and having fun and whilst I dislike children coming to the door and asking for sweets etc. (especially if they’re nothing to do with us, I think it’s begging) I do think it’s fun to teach them in a fun way what this time of year is really about.
For me, it’s about saying good bye and giving thanks to the ancestors that have gone before. It’s about paying it forward for the coming lunar year and bringing smiles to the faces of the smaller people, making them use their thoughts. There will be time enough to weep when their grand-parents pass on, but for now, lets sing and dance and have some fun! Let us make the good times and the happy memorie, for we never know when our time is up.Decks used are the Wildwood Tarot by John Matthews and the delectible Mark Ryan, with the Deck of 1000 Spreads by Tierney Saddler.
