The Veil is Thinning…

Samhain is only two weeks away. The days are shortening and the nights becoming longer…

Fairy Witchcraft honors deities connected to the good neighbors. This includes the liminal Gods, the Lady of the Greenwood, the Lord of the Wildwood, The Hunter, and the Queen of Wind.

My faery craft authority, Morgan Daimler, explains:

“The Lady of the Greenwood and the Lord of the Wildwood rule during the light half of the year, from Beltane until Samhain, and are also honored on the full moon. The Hunter and the Queen of the Wind rule the dark half of the year, from Samhain until Beltane, and are honored on the dark moon.”

Fairy Witchcraft: Old Ways for a New Day – Morgan Daimler

October 31st begins the dark half of the year. This is when The Hunter and the Queen of the Wind begin their reign. The liminal deities live between our world and what we call “Fairy.”

I will honor their reign by acknowledging their presence in the natural world. I know many of us are feeling the veil thin.

The Faery Star

The synchronicity of the number three is everywhere, lately. The number three has always been important in my life journey. The number three signifies good fortune. Each of my children was born with a three in the date, or a number that added up to the number three. In Buddhism, we have the three jewels: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.

The number three signifies the passage of time:

Past, Present, Future

Birth, Life, Death

Beginning, Middle, End

Three is the number of the Divine

Three is the number of Magic

So, as the days shorten and the nights lengthen until we reach Samhain, I will listen for the voices of the Hunter and the Queen of the Wind in my dreams. I’ll look for meaning in the synchronicities and search for omens. On Samhain, I’ll leave an offering to these liminal gods, pray to them, and be open to their blessings and guidance.
