Hurricane Wilma showed up and knocked out power and street
lights, blew down our trees, and generally made a big mess. We showed good
sense, called off the Ball, and did individual devotions on this our High Holy
Day. We will try again next year, and plan a special celebration for Yule.
We expect who knows how many people to attend our gala. There will be deejay music and dancing, readers, lights on our labyrinth, ongoing evening ceremonies. At Midnight we shall perform our solemn Samhain Celebration and after retelling the story of the Way of the Wizard.
Among us will be coven members, solitaries, the experienced, the seekers, and the curious. We expect respectful behavior from everyone.
The deejay music will be raucous and magickal. Our jewelry vendor will have pentacles. Our psychics readers will be busy.
As the evening progresses, we will hold an Attunement Ritual in the Memorial Garden. Later, it is rumored that we will do a hand fasting.
At 10:15 pm, we will perform a mini-Ritual for the season in a Druid tradition.
At midnight, we spin the Wheel of the Year. We retell the story of this season and of the Way of the Wizard. We stare into the Fire of Transformation. Perhaps we will be greeted by Spirit Dancers as we enter the Underworld and our Ritual Space. We will have drums and bonfires. We will light candles for our departed loved ones and reach out to them through sacred fire.
We will raffle some meaningful door prizes:
Yes, we encourage you to support of our local Metaphysical Shoppe's.
Cost of the Ball, $10 at the door. Kids Free with parents and, yes, they are parents' responsibility. Bring your favorite beverage. We have one food vendor, some readers, and more. Ritual garb and/or costumes are encouraged. NO PHOTOS AT RITUALS! Some of us are still closeted. Shhhhh!
