Pagan Love And The Golden Ratio

Some of my readers seem to think that I’m some flaky, hippy-dippy, crystal-gazing, bong-hitting, artist type who has no grasp on reality or the effects of poverty (though my family of four lives on less than $20K per year -- so technically we ARE poor) so let’s go ahead and reinforce this stereotype and get a little metaphysical in celebration of the Day of the Dead …

Samhain (Halloween) is the Druidh New Year. The Gaelighe (Celt is actually a Greek word), a Gaia-centric people followed a lunar calendar. Prior to the heliocentric Julian Calendar and the Gregorian Calendar, Samhain was celebrated on the first full moon in the sign of Scorpio. This is a time that traditionally marks the death of the Oak God and His symbolic return to womb of the Earth Mother until spring. On Samhain, it’s said, the Western Gate of Heaven is opened, and the veil between the Otherworld and the Middle World is at its most transparent. It is a time to mourn and rejoice for lost loved ones, to lament the loss of the warmth and fertility of Summer, a celebration of the last harvests before Winter, and an invitation to the dark aspects of the Mother with an understanding that all things must pass and that the barrenness and cold will yield again in Spring. Death is essential to life. So it goes.

This has been a year filled to the brim with the themes of death and regeneration. Full Story
