Happy Halloween, my lovelies!
Yesterday marked the New Moon in Scorpio. The Witch's New Year. A time to honor our ancestors and make offerings and lift the thinning veil between worlds. A time to meditate on the natural cycles of life and death as we step from the final glowing days of fall into the long night of winter. A time to get a little witchy and burn herbs and gather with our chosen ones.
To celebrate the darkness of the New Moon and the coming season, my creative partner and co-conspirator, Lindy McKay, and I hosted little gathering. We mixed herbs and sipped tea and read tarot. We spoke of the stars and our pasts and our presents and our futures. We swirled tea leaves and watched the black candles burn low. It was a magical space and time to connect with some of the women in my life I rarely see.
I think we, as a society, are really starved for these moments of communion and ritual. There are few things I love more than setting a beautiful space for people to gather. To slow down. To connect. All Hallows High Tea was the first in a series of seasonal pop-up events Lindy and I will be manifesting in the coming months to do just that. This new project is called The Secret Gathering. If you are interested in attending future gatherings, be sure to subscribe below. I'll make sure to let you know when the next event is brewing.
Have a lovely All Hallows Eve my witchy ones!
