Samhain

Pronounced ‘sow-en’ and called Halloween today, it is the ending of the Celtic year.  The Celtic New Year actually begins at sunset on October 31.  This ritual is known as Ancestor Night or Feast of the Dead because the veil between the worlds is thinnest on this night; it was and is considered an excellent time for divinations.  Feasts are made in remembrance of dead ancestors and as an affirmation of continuing life.  This is a time for settling problems, throwing out old ideas and influences.

This is either celebrated October 31, or the first Full Moon in Scorpio.
