Samhain is very close at hand and so is the season of darkness and death. The veil is at its thinnest and this is the last harvest of the year.

When The Wheel of the Year turns to Samhain, daylight has become much shorter and we spend more time shrouded in darkness. The cool wind nips and sings songs to us in the night from our ancestors and loved ones who have passed.

  2. Ancestors or loved ones you’ve lost that you’d like to honor
  3. Manifestation – What are some goals you have for the coming year? Take some time to meditate on this and then write about it
  4. What are you afraid of? (For real, I’m not talking spiders or small spaces) How is it holding you back from what you’d like to achieve? How will you overcome it?
  5. When do you celebrate Samhain (It’s typically celebrated at sundown on October 31st until sundown on November 1st or May 1st in the Southern Hemisphere)? However, some are very passionate about celebrating at the exact halfway point between the equinox and solstice and celebrate based on current astrological timing. Others prefer to celebrate on the full Moon closest to Samhain, but the choice is totally up to you!
  6. Tarot pulls or any divination work you’d like to do or have done (maybe you can ask for a message from an ancestor or loved one)
  7. Crystals you’re feeling drawn to right now or during Samhain
  8. What’s a new skill you want to learn? What are you willing to let go of to make this accomplishment come to life?

  11. What’s a new skill you want to learn? What are you willing to let go of to make this accomplishment come to life?

  25. What were some “seeds” that you planted this last Spring (Ostara) and Summer (Litha)? How did you help them to grow over that last few months? Are you able to reap the rewards of what you have sewn? What could you have done differently? How can you do better next year?
