It's close on Beltane on this side of the equator, but I can feel the Samhain energies flowing almost as strongly.
The veil between this world and some of the others seems to get thinner twice a year- at Beltane and Samhain. If it were not so, something odd would be going on in the vicinity of the Earth.
The difference between the two -the start of the winter season and the start of the summer-is a difference in the second differential. Up north, they are descending, while here we're ascending the year wheel.The first differential is the same.
Thus the energies feel pretty similar.
I wonder, perhaps, at our season of celebrating life and sex, if spirits of our ancestors don't take advantage of this time to select appropriate parents for their next incarnation?
