Did I find a reliable source? It said its Celtic. It also appears to b Wiccan. Which path should I research? The Celtic part or the Wiccan part?
Sounds interesting though. I don't celebrate any holidays but my baby's birthday. Other people put decorations up in my house lol
Here is some information i have collected over the years, sorry that i don't have the exact source as i have sooooooooooo much info saved "This is a good time
for us to look at wrapping up the old and preparing for the new in our lives.
Think about the things you did in the last twelve months. Have you left
anything unresolved? If so, now is the time to wrap things up. Once you’ve
gotten all that unfinished stuff cleared away, and out of your life, then you
can begin looking towards the next year.
October is the time
for inner cleansing. Meditate on the laws of Karma and thoughts of
reincarnation. This is the time of letting go, justice, balance, and inner
Ancestors: For some of us, Samhain is when we honor our ancestors who came
before us. This is the perfect night to celebrate their memory, if we’re fortunate,
they will return to communicate with us from beyond the veil, and offer advice,
protection and guidance for the upcoming year.
The Craft feel that on this night the separation between the physical
and spiritual realities is thin. Witches
remember their ancestors and all those who have gone before.
Samhain is also a time of reflection, of looking back
over the last year, of coming to terms with the one phenomenon of life over which
we have no control – death.
By observing the Sabbats
(Samhain), Witches attune themselves to the Earth and to the deities. They reaffirm their Earth roots. Performing rituals on the nights of the Full
Moon also strengthens their connections with the Goddess in particular. It is the wise Witch who celebrates on the
Sabbats and Esbats, for these are times of real as well as symbolic power. Honouring them in some fashion is an integral
part of Witchcraft."
i'm not wiccan but i identify as a 'witch'....which is a term that i feel has been given a bad wrap
you say you're a 'witch' or into 'witchcraft' and people automatically think you're worshipping the devil or crafting spells to kill people
EVERYTHING i do is positive...EVERY SINGLE THING, i do not work in 'black magic', but i do believe in 'magic' another term that gets a bad wrap
my definition of a witch is a woman who can 'bend or change' meaning, i have the power within myself to bring about that which i desire...i see no harm in that...
i have never and would never try to harm someone else...
Oops i went off on a tangent, sorry
