Samhain is Coming! Here are Resources to Get Your Sabbat in Gear!

Hey guys, the big one is coming up: Samhain. For many of us, it’s not just a sacred sabbat, but it’s also Halloween, which is a fun spooky celebration that overlaps. I know I get into both– just check out my YouTube decoration walkthrough from last year: Samhain/Halloween Decor & Altar!

So I thought I’d throw some of my resources up in one place for you!  But you gotta get ready! Hurry up, time’s a-wasting!

First off, if you’re new to Wicca and Paganism, be sure to take some time to learn exactly what Samhain isAnd you might want to learn about the tangled roots of Samhain and Halloween. You might also want to learn about some associations and correspondences for this holiday might be.

Crafts are a great way to get into the season, and if you’re setting up an altar you might want to make an easy memorial candle for your loved one! Or you can do some low-key activities to observe the sabbat without getting into elaborate rituals.

If you love your jack o’lanterns, make sure to check out my Pagan pumpkin stencils and then, check out more of my pumpkin patters with a Pagan theme.

If you really wanna get into the spirit, consider attending a festival, like this one I reviewed.

But if you’re doing the sabbat at home, that’s cool, too!  Don’t forget to plan your menu! This beef stew recipe is one I’ve been making for my family on Samhain night for over 20 years. It just wouldn’t feel the same without a big bubbling cauldron full on the stove. It’s like turkey at Thanksgiving for us.

If you’re just looking for something simple, try my apple bread or apple piesRemember, apples are seasonally appropriate, and are known as the food of the dead. This hot cocoa made with white chocolate and pumpkin is also the bomb.

If you’re trying to plan your spells, consider doing this Samhain spell to bring prosperity, or perhaps you would like to dissolve your links to an unpleasant past.  This pumpkin spell can help you call on your ancestors to lend you their wisdom.

Samhain 2016 in particular is going to be astrologically perfect for two things: making potions, which I also demonstrate on YouTubeAnother great activity for this year is scrying, and you can do that with your own easy homemade scrying mirror.

If you would like to take a little peek into my Samhains throughout the years, check out these excerpts from my Book of Shadows.

 

I hope that gives you a lot of great ideas for celebrating your sabbat! And if you like anything you find, please remember to share!

May you have a blessed Samhain!

Mac Moving On: Pre-House Hunting & Deadbeat Dad

Peeking at houses right now on the internet is both exciting and inspiring, but also a little saddening and frustrating. Occasionally I spot a little place that’s right up my alley– perfect location, perfect size, cute as a button with lots of potential.

Unfortunately, I have to get that down payment saved before I can even think of going for a mortgage and making an offer! That’s a bit frustrating.

I found this one little house (click to link) and thought, ‘Damn! What are the chances of that being available in January?” It’s right on target for what I hope to get. Cute little house would be perfect for us– perfect size, perfect location, right at my price range, even a fenced-in yard my Benny would love.

 

I’ve watched at least 3 little houses go by that might have been exactly what I needed but I’m stuck here in limbo saving up my down payment and waiting out my lease in Florida.

Unfortunately, my ex has become a deadbeat. He’s taken off numerous weeks of unpaid vacation to fly to Ireland and Indiana to meet women he ‘fell in love with’ on the Internet. I kept up with our bills, taxes, etc. so my credit wouldn’t be crap and he agreed he’d pay me back but he keeps putting his selfish whims first. With his world traveling and relationship drama he hasn’t been able to look for that second job, he got evicted, and his paycheck has apparently been crap.

I can fight it out in court and will win, I can cast all kinds of spells on him to do the honorable thing and pay his debts (considering it’s his children who are going to suffer if he doesn’t), etc. but I’m not likely to get much out of him before I move because he’s dug himself into such a hole.

I did throw him out when he reneged on his promises that he would get a second job and not take anymore time off or vacations to go seek romance until he paid me back some. I figured if he’s going to stiff me, he’s not going to get to keep taking advantage of my desire to do this amicably for another second. He’s on his own.

Even though it’s not going to help me get any of the money he owes me anytime soon, his being gone is like a weight lifted off my shoulders. It’s spiritually freeing to have him gone, I’ve been feeling so much better and much more at peace in the apartment.

Watching the man I once loved and respected turn into such a self-centered, narcissistic creep who doesn’t care who he hurts or who he uses has been extremely depressing and disappointing… not that I’d ever want him back again, but I did hope he’d at least stand up and be a man about things, not a leech and a rat.

Reminder: I’ve got a couple of cool workshops coming up this weekend and there are still some spaces left. More are coming by the end of the month, and I’ve got another video coming out that I’m excited to share.

I’ve got some mailbag posts I’m working on to release in the upcoming week, so check in.

Please also remember I’m on PATREON now, so if you wish to help me and my boys get our first house, a forever home, sponsor my work, even a $1 per month pledge, or a shout-out on your social media groups about my articles and videos, will be of tremendous help!
