Dark night sky at SamhainThe Wheel of the Year turns, and we arrive at the end of October and Samhain (pronounced Sow-en).

Here we meet the Crone Goddess. Wise. Still. Deeply knowing for she has seen it all and more! We meet her in nature … and in ourselves.

Samhain marks the end of Summer and the beginning of Winter. A time to acknowledge that we have moved into the darkest phase of the year.  The daylight hours are fading. Trees are losing their leaves. Plants are dying back. Animals nest. All of nature is readying itself for deep rest, hibernation and renewal.

This is a sacred time of transformation. A time of connecting to our ancestors. A time of deeply letting go and just being. A time to look within and feel the wisdom of our intuition.

Welcome to the dark side!

And it’s a time which can feel challenging.

It can foster deep release as well as deep recognition of what is no longer working, useful or required within ourselves and our lives.  As we tend to deny the fact of death in our culture, this can manifest as resistance to surrendering to the deep letting go – the inner death of what is ready to go – that this energy offers us.

You may feel tired, emotional, confused, frustrated.

You may finally recognize what needs to go from your life – whether internally in terms of thoughts and beliefs, or externally in terms of possessions, relationships, or ways of being and doing.

You may feel an uneasy feeling of resistance.

You may feel a deep connection to your intuition and be guided actually to listen to  and act on the wise whispers of your soul…

However you feel, can you allow yourself to be with it? To let it unfold? To listen to the deeper messages?

Connect to the wisdom of the Crone Goddess of Samhain – She who is deeply wise, has seen it all and can hold it all.

Samhain Blessings of Wisdom and Transformation to you!
