Last evening our coven got together for a Samhain dumb supper and ritual. Since the veil between the physical and astral planes is very thin right now, it is an excellent time for spirit contact and divination.

We set up our ancestor altar, filled our plates as well as an offering plate for the ancestors, listened to a short invocation and began to eat in silence. After we finished our supper and began speaking again, all present seemed to agree that the entire circle area was filled with spirit. Some got messages from loved ones, and we shared stories about those we were honoring on our altar. This was an emotional time as we felt our loved ones in spirit draw near.


We moved to the grass area of the circle where our ritual altar was set up, called the quarters and then started the evening divination for the coming year using each of the five elements. Since Samhain is considered to be the Witches’ New Year, we were asking for messages about the year ahead. 

For the east/air we used smoke to scry for messages about what new energies may be entering our lives this year. This smokey scrying tool was set up near our east quarter.


In our fiery southern quarter a candle flame was used to scry for messages about where our passions will lie in the year ahead.


In the watery western quarter a cauldron of water was a scrying tool to find out about what would be leaving our lives in the coming year.


In the earthy northern quarter a crystal ball was placed to gaze into for a sense of where we would find our grounding and stability this year.


And, finally, in the center, a blanket was placed with tarot and oracle cards to contact the Lord and Lady in the ether for any special insights or areas to focus on in the year to come. 


After our ritual was closed we went indoors and shared all the many insights we had gained through our divination. The growing season is coming to a close for many of us and it is time to turn inward. With all the parties and revelry associated with Halloween, it was nice to set aside this time to grow quiet and listen. 

May you receive helpful and bounteous messages from beyond the veil this Samhain to encourage you along your path.

Blessings,

Lady Sarina
