Halloween in a Blink!

By Melanie Harris
Halloween, also known as Samhain (pronounced sow-en), or All Hallows Eve, is an optimal night for Tarot reading and other divination.  October 31st marked the end of the growing season and the eve of the New Year in Celtic culture, and many modern-day witches celebrate the holiday as a sacred night.  It is widely believed that the gate between the living and the dead is open on Halloween, and rituals to honor the dead and communicate with spirits are commonly practiced at this time.  Halloween is also a great time for reflection, giving thanks for your blessings and looking ahead to a brighter future.  It is a night to gather energy to keep your heart fires burning throughout winter's chill, so be sure to charge yourself up with a big dose of Halloween fun!  This special Halloween edition is filled with ideas and information to help make your holiday a real treat.  Enjoy!
