Samhain 2011

I know we're already turning the Wheel once more, but bear with me, lol! I just wanted to share our Samhain altars' photos, as always.

This Sabbath became particularly special to me after my dad died in 2001, and even more after my big sister Dedê died in 2008, just a few days away from this sacred day. So it's a day full of meaning and when I miss them most... I always place their photos on my altar, and also my grandparents', a loved couple I also miss... Thank the gods I have beautiful, fun memories about them all:


Lucas' altar is where we make our little ritual, where we thanked the Gods for another new year to live, and where we wrote and burned little notes on everything we wanted to get rid the upcoming months in his cauldron, with rosemary and mugwort (that's one of the parts Lucas loves most, lol!). Actually I wrote the bad things, since Lucas said he's quite happy with his life rightnow and couldn't think of anything bad to write down - my sweet little witch...:

He got too close to the camera when I was taking the photo, and I made it even closer, just because I love his "Japanese" eyes:


Of course, I made the traditional apple pie everybody loves and which is made full of the best intentions for the sabbath:


Summoning it up, it was a good night, celebrated on our quiet way, into our shared bedroom, certainly blessed by the Gods.

I hope you all had a lovely Beltane at the Northern Hemisphere! :)

Blessed Be! Nice to see Lucas's beautiful face again. Beltane on the east coast of the US was lovely. We're looking forward to some Christians being raptured up to their heaven on Saturday. Any of that going on in Brazil?

What a delicious looking pie, and I absolutely love the cinnamon (or graham crumb?) pentacle on it.

Blessings and love from our house to yours.

What a beautiful ritual. Simple and wonderful. Fully accessible to Lucas. That is perfect. Beltane was kinda cold where I am but I felt the summer sun coming. Perhaps we were experiencing the cooler weather headed to you down South for the Samhain season!
