The time period, between Oct. 31st and Nov. 2nd is one of the most widely celebrated ancient traditions honoring our ongoing connection to loved ones who have passed. Samhain heralds the thinning of the veil between the seen and unseen worlds; the Day of the Dead is a major festival in Mexico. Honoring our ancestors with love and gratitude has always been the theme of this time. Given all the precarious events, culminating in a contentious presidential election, just one day after the Day of the Dead, we need our beloved guides’ help more than ever.
This is the time of going within and diving deeper into your soul. The ancient wisdom is that we do not lose our connection with our loved ones who have crossed over. Everywhere, the understanding of this beloved connection is returning.
There is a full moon in Taurus on the night of October 31st and it is conjunct Uranus, planet of new ideas and revolutionary change. Those of you who are astrology buffs are aware that there are other major planetary configurations that have been going on all through this year. What they mean has been the subject of much conjecture from a host of astrologers.
Taita Juanito, Inga Shaman from Columbia has said:
“We are being guided as a single race back to the flow of creation. It is returning you, me, all of us back to Love.”
This is my prayer everyday, and so it is, so mote it be, aho.
Please take some time to connect with your ancestral lineage during this very powerful Samhain time.
Much Love, Linda
