Samhain [sow’-en] is celebrated on October 31st. Other names are Halloween, Hallows and All Hallows Eve. The celebration relates the roles of Death in the cycle of Life. In ancient cultures this was the day to close loose ends, put things to rest, finish the gathering of crops, and prepare for the winter. The main aspect of this sabbat is to honor those who have died. The potential of working with Spirits is quite connective now. The veil between Life and Death are at its thinnest point this time. We are at the closest to the Spirits which can be the best time to work with divinatory tools. This is one of the highest and most magical times and also considered the New Year.
