Faery Qween

Samhain is known as a "mystical
& enchanted night,
when magic can be done to benefit
our personal lives as well as our planet."
Samhain helps keep beings
"steadfast" in their "understanding
that human life parallels
the changing of the seasons."
It is also the "time to project for
beneficial change on the Earth.

This is one of the most important,
though least understood,
of the Celtic festivals.
Unlike the standard modern adaption
of "halloween" or " All Hallows' Eve,
the true holiday of Samhain
has nothing to do with "evil" practices
or ghoulish costumes, etc."
In ancient Celtic times , everybody practiced & embraced natural "magic" & "women's intuition"
EVERBODY lived a "magical-life",
which was & still is a living religion & a way of life.

Fae ....made up of a race of gifted beings.
"All Celts" are said "to have Faery blood, even to this day."
(and there are also other cultures who are familiar with the Fae,
elfen, merfolk or nature elemental spirits, by various names.)

By the Celts & their descendants,
"Faeries" are often said,
to "dwell in the Faery mounds or hilltops,
& often encountered at sacred junctures,
usually magical places on Earth
that are actually between worlds."
original artist named Shroud_faerygirl-image
" Samhain above all, is a time to build on your imagination.

" Let yourself feel the very core of your beings ,
"what it is to wonder."
Let everything you take part in on Samhain
appeal to "a sense of mystery & magic "

More About The Celtic Samhain :
"To the ancient Celts, this great holiday divided the year into two seasons, Winter & Summer."
"Samhain is the day on which the Celtic New Year & Winter begin together, so it is a time of beginnings & endings."

Wheel of The Year Wreath

"On Samhain the veil between the worlds of spirit & matter is lifted & the living & the dead are more likely to exchange psychic information."
It is also an excellent time for meditation or divination.

First they came for the women & I didn't speak up because I was not a "feminist".....
Then they came for the teenagers, & I didn't speak up because I was not a "teenager"...
Then they came for the children of the Goddess,
& I did not speak because I was for the patriarchal men & a male god..
Then they came for all the children,
& I did not speak up because I was a grown man...
Then they came for The Friends of The Fae & wildlife loving "tree-huggers",
& I did not speak up because I knew them not,
( I was a "grown-up" who had lost my inner child.....)
Then they came for me, and by that time noone was left to speak up.
