We have reached the end of the agricultural cycle and begin the Celtic New Year. The veils between the worlds are lifted this evening, making it a good time to communicate with departed souls, the faerie realm and traveling to the underworld. On the physical plane clear your mind and walk a labyrinth, as you spiral out hold the intention of what you are birthing anew.
Check out the Labyrinth Society online for more info, resources and events relating to everything Labyrinthian.
Some essences to contemplate for a Samhain botanical perfume or an anointing oil: Sage, Artemisia and Apple Blossom concrete. Opoponax is appropriate due to its association with the planet of death and resurrection, Pluto. Other materials to consider in maceration or tinctured form are: Corn, Grain, Pumpkin, Turnip, Arborvitae, Hazel, Oak, and Acorn. Add a little Choya or Cade for the Sacred Bonfire.
