The Thinning of the Veil at Samhain

Although Samhain has now officially passed (although it does remain as the Irish Gaelic name for the month of November), I still receive questions about Samhain, when it should be celebrated, what it means from an energetic/intuitive perspective, and how to celebrate it.

Releasing with Fire in the Blackberry Moon

There are so many names for the Full Moon in August ranging from the names of First Nations people — Fruit Moon (Cherokee) and Sturgeon Moon (Algonquian) — to those of England (the Grain Moon and the Corn Moon), and the Lightning Moon as named by some Neopagans.
