Samhain Blessing

     Greetings this Samhain, marking the end of the year,

As we remember the departed souls we hold dear.

The end of one cycle, the beginning of the next,

May all your days forward, be abundantly blessed!

Samhain (Sow-een) is an ancient tradition symbolising the final harvest, where animals who could not be wintered were slaughtered and a feast set for the final spoils before the hardship of Winter. Typically celebrated sunset to sunset (31st October - 1st November).


Signifies the coming of Winter and the darker months and the closing of the life circle - death. Ancient Pagan traditions did not fear death but celebrated it s a means for new life to be born. It is a time of year, whether you have pagan belief; for example Wicca, or just plain ‘ol witches feel the shift. You don’t need to have a religious connotation to celebrate Samhain, use the energies abound to set intentions, honour the lost, work on yourself.
