October Cerridwen’s Grove – The Cailleach
The Celtic Wheel of the Year ends and begins on Samhain. This is a time to return to the womb of the Cailleach, she who holds the medicine of deep winter and guards the road to the realm of the ancestors.
This October we are blessed with two full moons. The first will be on October 1st, and the second will be on October 31st, the very day of Samhain itself. Our Cerridwen’s Grove Circle will be held in the energy of the first moon of the month.
This ritual will honor the Cailleach, the Great Hag, and Crone, and will carry us safely through Samhain and into the crooked hands of winter.
During our ritual, we will honor the Cailleach with a tea blended especially in her honor from the Witchwood Teahouse. We will practice the ancient art of scrying, and you will receive a bath soak created by The Rebel Herbalist that you can use at home, turning your bathtub into a scrying surface and portal for divination. The ritual is complete with a magically charged and enchanted candle designed to help us connect with our ancestors, created by Wild Moon
