What Have You Left Behind?

Today is the last post of this series, 30 Days of Samhain and with this ending comes the call to retrace our steps and see what we have left behind from when we started this countdown. Today the fires of Sagittarius course through the waters of our heart and emotions. This seems fitting given the tensions we have faced these past several months nationally and the reopening and new ways we are all learning to reconnect. We can use this expansion of energetic fire to move forward towards the light of Yule (Litha)/Winter Solstice and the potential to craft a stronger and more present way of Being in the world.

Throughout these days we have stood in the power of the Dark Goddess, and sought the comfort and wisdom of our beloved ancestors. Now, on this blessed day of astrological Samhain’s potency the wisdom of the cosmos awaits our calling. We, the seeds of cosmic light and our Ancestors, those who stand in the darkened light beyond the veils, weave our magic collaboratively and the wisdom we have retrieved in this awakening will seed the new paths we trod as we move towards the Solstice light.

Take time today to sit quietly and simply reflect on your journey. All that has brought you to this moment. Not just in these past 30 days, but in the course of a year, a lifetime. Think on your beloved ancestors and what part of them has inspired and contributed to who you are. Think on what lessons have been learned and what you have shared in reciprocity. Allow yourself to be open in receiving the visions and power of what will come to be if these gifts are used to their fullest.

And, think on what lay discarded on the paths behind you. What has served as compost for new growth and what has gratefully been given for transformation. This is the over-arching work of Samhain. Claiming what is yours, remembering what you laid down in offering and finding your way as you embark on a new journey. Be mindful that what you have left behind has not always been abandoned from a place of over burden, fear and sorrow. We must also allow ourselves to leave as the compost those pieces and spaces of ourselves that we have outgrown and are no longer in alignment with who we have become.

Today having come so far, and with this ending, I leave you in the care of Hecate, the Crone at the final crossroads. The Moon is waning towards fullness and in the with the energy of Sagittarius, the possibilities for our reach and connectivity is far and wide….

Hecate's Call: The Silence of the Crone

I wait for you at the
Dark waning of the Moon.

I wait for you at the
Newness of what can be.

I wait for you at the
Fullness of what unfolds.

At each turning I am
Always standing with you.

But for now.....

I wait at the crossroads
And, my silence reaches
Out to draw you back to me. 

I have called to you as
The Maiden who knows
The power of her desire.

I have held out loving arms
To enfold you as only a
Mother can do to comfort
The child that has strayed.

And, now I wait in the power
Of age and wisdom that
Has seen all and can see
The truth or dishonesty that
Spills forth from seeking lips.

I am cloaked in the darkness
But those who have the
Courage to come to me
See the truth of my hidden
Light that burns brightly
With the lantern of time’s
Ancient mystery.

This pathworking is the last of the three about the Triple Goddess Hecate and her gifts expressed through the face of Maiden, Mother and Crone. This is the final journey of the lunar cycle walking the paths with Hecate and seemed an appropriate ending to our 30 Day exploration of Samhain’s energy.

Final Thoughts:
I hope you have enjoyed these 30 Days and found some things of value for your practice. Aways be mindful that these Sabbats are not isolated events. Each flows one into the other and each becomes a stepping stone of revol(ve)utionary change if we hold their lessons near and dear to our hearts all throughout the year. As the veils close, may the blessings of this season and your ancestors be with you always. Many blessings on your path…. Robin

I hope you will join me in the countdown to the Winter Solstice beginning in December: 19-Days of Illuminated Darkness
