Pagan Library: Halloween Chant
This chant can be outdoors around a bonfire or inside around an extra large altar candle.
Fire red, summer’s dead,
Yet shall it return.
Clear and bright in the night,
Burn, fire, burn!
Dance the ring, luck to bring,
When the year’s aturning.
Chant the rhyme at Hallowstime,
When the fire’s burning.

Historic Mysteries: Stingy Jack and the History of the Jack-o’-Lantern
by Les Hewitt
The traditions of Halloween originate from a blend of Samhain, the Celtic celebration marking the end of the summer harvest, and Christian traditions honoring saints and martyrs. Trick-or-Treating and scary costumes are just two ancient traditions that have survived. Today, one of our most beloved Halloween customs is pumpkin carving. This too has been around for many centuries, except that in Ireland, they used turnips and rutabagas

DO YOU OWN YOUR LIFE?
“The meaning of life is to give life meaning.”
— Ken Hudgins
When we own our lives, we accept what we’ve inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also claim our right to create new conditions if we’re not happy with what’s come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. Weacknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.
Do you feel that you own your life at the moment?
“I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I’ve written for myself… and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.”
— Shirley MacLaine
“Life is too short to be little.”
— Benjamin Disraeli
“Every man dies, but not every man lives….”
— Garth Brooks

“I want to do it because I want to do it.”
Sometimes motivation cannot be explained. It simply is. Maybe it’s how we are guided in our spiritual growth. We each have our own road to travel, and we’re making decisions which way to turn all the time. We’re motivated to keep going, to see what is around that next corner.

Daily Tarot: The Magician
It may be hard to be serious and stick to those dull but crucial tasks that keep the day running smoothly. Be systematic, cheerful, and don’t let it show if you feel undervalued or underappreciated. Save your sharp wit and cleverness for another time and place. Time spent with younger people or children can lift your spirits and keep things in perspective for you.
