Happy Samhain, Happy Halloween, Happy All Hallow's Eve!

  • If you catch a falling leaf on Samhain before it touches the ground it will bring you good luck and health for the coming winter.
  • On the morning of November 1st a silver coin was thrown through the front door of the house. The coin had to remain where it had fallen in order to bring financial luck.
  • An old belief is that by peeling an apple on Hallowe'en and keeping the peel in one piece, then throwing it over your shoulder you will discover the initials of a future lover.
  • By candlelight go alone to a mirror and eat an apple before it, whilst combing your hair. Your future love will be seen in the glass over your shoulder. If you will die without being married, a skull will appear in the mirror.
  • To ward off evil on Halloween you should walk around your home three times clockwise and three times counterclockwise.
  • To see a spider on Halloween means it is a relative returning from the dead to check on you.
  • If a bat flies around your house on Halloween it is a death omen.
  • Single girls should scatter hempseed in a field on Halloween night and they will dream of their future husband.
  • Light a candle to remember your departed loved ones on Halloween night. If the flame of a candle goes out on Halloween then you are in the company of a ghost. When the candle flame flickers on Halloween night it is being touched by the spirits of dead ancestors.
  • Lock your cats up on Halloween as an elf could travel on your cats back into your home and create havoc.
  • Ring a bell (not a doorbell) which would ward off evil spirits for the entire year.
  • If you see an Owl diving then he/she is coming to take your soul away.
  • To see a black cat on Halloween is very good luck for the next year. To see a white cat on Halloween is very bad luck for the next year.

  • **~°~** Use the magic of this time to say goodbye to a bad habit or addication, an old relationship (!!!!!) or anything else negative in your life - Samhain is the night to leave it all behind. **~°~**
