HALLOWS EVE / SAMHAIN (October 31st)
Feast of the Dead, All Souls Night, Feast of Apples, Festival of Remembrance, New Year....
Samhain is one of the major festivals of the Wheel of the Year, and possibly the most important festival of all. All the harvest is complete, its the end of the cycle of birth and growth, it is the point of death. The seeds of the harvest have fallen deep into the dark earth, they are unseen, dormant, and thus apparently lifeless. The Sun King is sacrificed back to the land and the crone grieves for him until his rebirth at Yule. This is the time of the descent into darkness, to form new ideas and overcome all fears.
This is a truly magickal time and candles are particularly important now. The ritual of a Candle Ceremony is performed for the ancestors. The candle is orange for the vitality of life within death. The scent is full bodied identical to rich spicy cinnamon beautiful and warming. A full-moon charged Orange Calcite crystal is place in the candle to build up your physical, emotional, and mental balance. Use this candle in magick to give thanks to your ancestors or to just infuse your space with this warm fragrance.

Do not leave a burning candle unattended. Do not burn for longer than 4 hours. Do not let the candle burn to the bottom of the container. Trim the wick before re lighting.
