Magick Snippet: Born on Samhain
In Scotland, a child born on the night of Samhain was considered to be gifted with “an dà shealladh” (the Two Sights), which is more commonly known today as “second sight” or the ability of clairvoyance. At Samhain however, it was common for many people to practice the art of divination, females in particular would seek to identify future husbands, and determine if marriage would succeed or fail.

Pagan Library: poetry
Dangling ’round the overshadowed neck
Of the cryptic sky,
Upon a sidereal chain of stars,
A memory, cumbersome as stone,
Burdens my mind and pulls me down,
Enshrouded in a pearl halo of light

STOP THE BATTLES
“When you fight something, you’re tied to it forever. As long as you’re fighting it, you’re giving it power.”
— Anthony de Mello
What are you fighting?
Resistance always brings pain. Examine your struggle. What does your personality want from the situation? What does your soul want? What can you learn from this?
Always strive to mend separation and achieve unity. Always choose love over fear. If you can embrace whatever you are struggling against, the struggle will disappear.
“What you resist persists. And only what you look at, and own, can disappear. You make it disappear by simply changing your mind about it.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

“What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”
-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
The earth is our home. Home sweet home! We need to give it love, to give it attention. When our house gets run down we fix it up, do some spring cleaning, add a fresh coat of paint. The earth needs the same kind of care. Keeping our waters clean, and our skies clear – all of that is our responsibility. We can start right where we are.
