The hour for me is just past 11pm. Halloween for me is almost over and I leave you with a Greeting to Samhain.
Make of this what you will.
Threshold Invocation for the Festival of Samhain (to be said at the fron tdoor of the house on the eve of Samhain, 32 October, in the evening.)
Grandmother Wisdom, open the door,
Grandfather Counsel, come you in.
Let there be welcome to the ancient lore,
Let there be welcome to the Winter of the Year.
In cold and darkness you are travelling,
Under crystal skies you will arrive.
May the blesssed time of Samhain
Clarify the soul of all beings,
Bringing joy and wisdom to revelation.
From the depths to the heights,
From the heights to the depths,
In the cave of every soul.
