Walking Between the Worlds

We're approaching one of the most magical times of the year, when the veils between worlds are, as Allison Rae says, "whisper thin." Secularly known as Hallowe'en, in Earth-based traditions this turning of the wheel is called Samhain (pronounced 'sow-in' or 'sow-een'), a powerful time to manifest intent.

Allison writes, "This year the Halloween season begins with the New Moon in Scorpio on October 28 and extends through Halloween on October 31 to 'true' Samhain on November 7. All Saint's Day is November 1 and Dia de las Muertas (All Soul's Day) is November 2. The alignments create a bubbling cauldron of possibilities fueled by Scorpio's promise of transcendence.

"Death signals an ending and a new beginning, an opportunity to create from the Void. Tap into the creative force of the Universe . . . Divinity . . . Essence. Light a candle and invite those who are at peace across the veil to energize your prayers and intentions for creating a new reality during this sacred gateway alignment."

Crows, one of my animal totems, have been cawing to me daily this week, imparting the liminal message to release all fear and allow the currents of change to sweep me joyfully into the next adventure.

Wherever you are poised in your own unfolding ... dare to approach the threshold ... and step beyond it.
