Halloween!!

R.G. Emanuelle

Halloween is my favorite holiday. My weekly blog for Women & Words was fortuitously scheduled to go live on Halloween, so I did a Halloween blog. I give a little history of Halloween and offer my very own ghost story. A real one. If you’d like to check that out, it’s HERE.

One of my favorite things to do is watch classic horror movies. Movies like Dracula, Frankenstein,Forbidden Planet, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dementia 13, Night of the Living Dead, Halloween, The Exorcist, Psycho, the Hammer movies—such as Dracula: Prince of Darkness and Brides of Dracula and Curse of Frankenstein—and the giant creature movies, such as Them,Kingdom of the Spiders, Day of the Triffids, and Tarantula. I love them all, even when they’re bad. Especially if they’re bad. Which they mostly were.

And, despite my penchant for horror/gothic/paranormal themes, I will admit that Halloween…

Women and Words

It is the coolest thing that my blog this week falls on Halloween. Halloween—All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain, Season of the Witch, whatever you want to call it—is my absolute favorite holiday. Vampires, witches, ghosts, goblins, skeletons, scarecrows, mummies, monsters, pumpkins, costumes, jack-o-lanterns, autumn colors, candy, and pie. Can you ask for more from a holiday?

A Brief History of Halloween

Halloween began as a pagan holiday, a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest face02season and the beginning of winter, halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. It was believed to be a magical time, when spirits and fairies entered our world and the souls of the dead visited their homes. Bonfires were lit, offerings of food and drink were left for them, and people went door to door in costumes, reciting verses in exchange for food. This was known as “guising” and is thought to be…

Dwelling in the Dark: The Moon + Herbology

Worts + Cunning Apothecary

dwellinginthedark

As the dark continues to lengthen in the Northern Hemisphere and some of us prepare to celebrate the new year, I find myself firmly ensorcelled by the deep of night and like a night-blooming flower I open up and turn my face towards the Moon’s glow. I stand out in my garden under streetlight and close my eyes, floating my senses above the teeming senses, like a grey-winged moth, searching for the Moon above the purply dark of Los Angeles. I hunger, like so many wild ones, for the nectar of Moonbright.

What does the Moon matter to herbologists + plantfolk? 

The moon is a celestial vessel pouring out the energies of the sun, stars, and planets in our everyday (and everynight) lives as She moves through the sky. Our magickal ability to access, shape, and bend energy is defined by how we relate to the moon. Integrating herbs…

Anastasia Vitsky

Thank you to everyone who participated in Spank or Treat! We had a wonderful team of authors and ambassadors who brought you the fun, and we had a terrific group of commenters.
