November wind has a sound different from any other. It is easy to imagine the cave of the winds in some mythical Northland where the winds are born and the gods send them out to conquer the quiet air. ~ Gladys Taber
These past few days, I have been savoring the cooler weather, the gorgeous diversity of pumpkins and gourds, and the subtle changes in tone to the trees. The honks of the geese center me right into full Autumn and I can easily say that this is my favorite season.
Samhain and Day of the Dead celebrations roll right into November. The veils are thin. Our Ancestors and Beloved Dead are around us and all time seems to be held in sway to the liminality of the worlds right now. Soon the clamor and sparkle of the holidays will take over and, and before you know it, 2020 will be here. I am already compiling the Holiday Goddess Gift Guide to be ready in the beginning of November.
MotherHouse and Mystery School of the Goddess are busy! Don’t miss our free online Samhain meditation on Wednesday, October 30 and watch for new courses are being added weekly on Mystery School.
THANK YOU. THANK YOU for being part of the community here at MotherHouse and for engaging through the wonderful events and classes on Mystery School of the Goddess. I really appreciate each and every one of you!
Blessings and love to you all for your November!
