Hello Spellmaker readers!
Autumn is underway and portly orange pumpkins are turning up at every roadside farm stand and the trees are gilded in shades of rust, copper and crimson. As we welcome the darker half of the year we await the official start of fall . September 23rd
will be this year’s true equinox when daytime and nighttime hours are in total balance. Halloween is just around the corner and Fet Ghede, the traditiinal Voudou New Year beckons in all its spooky reverie.
In writing this article I struggled to find a topic that did not cover merely “balance” of dark and light.I wanted to muse on something grander,more magnificent.;it was then that I realized my perspective didn’t need to be larger…it needed to be smaller! In cooler weather we tend to create a cozy indoor space to escape the cold and dark..even outdoors we huddle around a bonfire to keep warm in the frosty fall air. We don more layers of clothing and pull our gloves shawls and coats out of storage so we can keep body heat close to our bodies as we venture out in the brisk breeze of the season.
We are closest I think, to nature in the fall, because we have a constant reminder outside that hard work results in a beautiful harvest, that we must let go of the old in order to make room for something new, and that even though death is part of life, having respect for what,or who has come before us helps keep us well rooted and carries on whispers of what was beautiful about those we have loved and lost.
Autumn is a great time to decide what goals and intentions you want to tend to in the coming year. If you feel unsure about how to make it happen try a cosmic voodoo destiny egg
! It is one of the most under utilized products in the Spellmaker arsenal…truly amazing. Even if you’re not sure what you want your destiny to be you you can use this as a powerful tool to ask. And if you do know what you want your destiny to be you can focus the energy of this kit on having opportunities and timing occur to help that intention manifest. I love that this kit can be used over and over and only gets stronger the more you use it! I also love that this particular egg kit seems to help things fall into place to help you…it reminds me that “magic takes the path of least resistance.” Indeed. It amazes me every time!
Also…Mambo Sam is now crafting custom made oils for your particular situation out of her Etsy Shop
! I don’t need any convincing of how fantastic Mambos spell oils are. I feel like the sky is the limit when an oil is made for your one of a kind needs and goals. I feel a destiny egg/custom oil combination brewing in my future…
Speaking of Mambo’s Etsy Goodies
she is also offering ancestor candles
there that are not available on the Spellmaker site and would be an amazing addition to your ancestor alter this Samhain and are created on the point of Maman Bridgitte and her husband,the incomparible Baron Samedi.
I wish you an Autumn filled with love and laughter in whatever way you choose to celebrate it! May your days be filled with inspiration and may your days to come surpass every expectation!
