    After all the hard work in the garden a good witch needs to have some fun too!

    Interesting variety of comments. Halloween here was kids in costumes and parents, mostly scary costumes, walking around to “get something”. I missed very, very much Yellow Springs’ bonfires in the neighborhoods, where we would gather and share food, sit and talk into the dark, not far from the Glen, much more connected to community and the land (and called a friend there, who promised to visit a bonfire for me!) I think the evil starts coming in when people are disconnected from the land and its sovereignty, as Blackie’s post suggests. I don’t think there’s anything evil about remembering that life ends in death, or in remembering one’s loved ones on this one night of the year, or even with sharing food and gathering, although candy might not be the best to share!

  8. Thanks to everyone for the comments. Cindy, I just had a chance to read Doreen’s link, and, well, um, personally, I don’t consider paganism and witchcraft necessarily a bad thing. It depends on how you’re doing it, but originally, pagan just meant from the fields, as heathen meant from the heath. Anyone who’s convinced that Christianity holds the keys to the world ought to read John Lamb Lash’s “Not in His Image.”

    Our celebration was with self-identified pagans or pagan friendly people interested in gathering for a time of honoring the change of seasons, which includes death. Our group is full of gardeners, who recognize the cycle of life intimately in our dealings with the land — as did our Ancestors. We have a resident poet who writes a poem or prayer for each turn of the Wheel, and we always have a huge vegan feast after we gather. Last night, I had each person bring a memento of a loved one and/or Ancestors to place on an altar, and we each spent a few moments telling a story about them, speaking their name and remembering them. We had a “dumb supper” with a place setting in honor of the dead, the contents of which I composted this afternoon. Death and life are completely intertwined. The reason our culture is so ridiculously imbalanced is because people do not know how to look death in the face anymore, and so it grows and grows and grows into a full on culture of death and destruction, because the culture knows not how to deal with its Shadows.

    RE: witchcraft — it’s stepping into your own sovereign ability to shift energies and align with Nature. If even a tiny fraction more of society reclaimed this right, childhood sexual abuse, rape and the war economy would grind to a screeching halt, because people would fear the instant karma that accompanies such things when people are standing in their own power. Witches get a bad name, because a small group of “elites” perverted the Goddess culture, turned it into a sick patriarchal control secret boys’ club that celebrates and fixates on abuse and destruction, rather than on life. Original pagan teachings revere death more like compost — that which goes back into the Earth to regenerate the land.

    I don’t actually celebrate Halloween. I celebrate Samhain and proudly so. I just wished everyone a Happy Halloween because not everyone knows what Samhain is. πŸ™‚

    Many blessings and thanks to all for the comments.

  9. Hi Doreen, just checked out the link. Please see my comment to Cindy. Not all pagans or witches are Satanists. In fact, very, very few are. If you’ve not read John Lamb Lash’s “Not in His Image,” I definitely recommend it, along with Monica Sjoo and Barbara Mor’s “Great Cosmic Mother.” It has taken centuries to divorce people so far from the land and from the Mother Goddess energies that these things are now demonized as the male “diety” thought form invented by Christians and known as “Satan.” It’s the psyop of all psyops how the Luce Sophia (the organic light of Wisdom) was completely bastardized and turned into a patriarchal Luciferianism focused on destruction, decay and transhumanism. The synthetic instead of the organic. True paganism honors the Mother in all Her organic forms as Nature births and rebirths in all Her beauty and abundance. Seriously, if you’ve not read those two books, they’ll blow your mind. πŸ™‚

    Very cute Laura! I was a wizard. Great minds think alike. 😊 I celebrate Samhain too. Everything bad about paganism was invented by the church, to scare people from even looking at it. Just like Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel were created to scare people from leaving towns, cities and villages. Pagans were out there and we wouldn’t want you to know the truth. Besides people are easier controlled in towns and cities.

  11. So true, James. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Agenda 21 mega-cities anyone? How about demonizing anyone who loves Nature or calling organic food lovers “eco-terrorists”? Sheesh. My friend, Tim, just sent this link: http://endofcapitalism.com/2009/11/05/who-were-the-witches-patriarchal-terror-and-the-creation-of-capitalism/ Reading that, one sees some parallels to today, including why it’s worthy of people like George Soros to bankroll the Muslim invasion of Europe. Divine Feminine the key to overturning the patriarchal mess destroying the world? What better way to subvert that than bring in millions of young men trained in Sharia Law in which women are good for raping and not much else? Apparently, the King of Saud’s going to bankroll another $32 million towards bringing Sharia Law to the US. Time for the witches and wizards to draw increasingly wider sacred circles! The Great She is rising. She (hopefully) learned Her lesson from the Middle Ages and won’t be stopped this time.

    You called it correctly in regard to Doreen’s link to “Fellowship of the Minds.” The author is a “consider the source” type of writer. And the “:Fellowship” is A-OK with you only if you agree with them. If you disagree and share another viewpoint, you get hunted down– literally, the woman who runs it will track you by your ISP or domain, and publish your personal information for the world to see. I get a creepy feeling to the extreme from her sycophants.

    On another note, my mom reminded me that one year I dressed up as a wizard, long before Harry Potter. Apparently I borrowed her burgundy bathrobe (which was much too long) and she made a conical hat from cardboard and put glitter and stars on it. I have no memory of this… πŸ™‚ But I guess somehow I knew, even early on.

  13. Oh, that’s super creepy about the woman tracking your ISP or domain. Glad I didn’t link directly from my comment bump up. John Calvin would be so proud!

    That sounds like a fun little wizard’s outfit!
