Happy Halloween, friends! Or for those of you who celebrate it, a very blessed and holy Samhain to you. May your ancestors be blessed, and may they light the way forward for you and all your family.
Today’s card is very apropos for this time of year: The Hermit is about going within, seeking the answers to your questions from within ourselves. I also read it to be about ancestors and the wheel of time passing, and as a reminder that if we are not old now, we will be before too long. It’s a reminder that we carry within us all we need, if we can just let some combination of faith and wisdom be our guide. And now, I’ve literally just found out that the mother of a friend of mine passed away into the next life early this morning, following in the footsteps of her ancestors before dawn and walking the path that we only walk once. So I’m going to cut this post short, and go pray for her and the family that she has left behind. May we all be blessed and held in eternal love, and may you all find what you are seeking. Be patient with yourselves, and remember that wisdom only comes through a lifetime of experience.
With all love, even in grief,
