It's October! Don’t you love this time of year? Things seem to slow down a bit. There doesn’t seem to be the hustle and bustle that accompanies summer. The summer festivals are now a memory and everywhere I go I see fall harvest or Halloween decorations. The air is cool and crisp, the wind rustles through the trees. Pumpkins appear at grocery stores and on porches. I light more scented candles (they’re all over the house.) I hear squirrels throw acorns on my roof; they hit the roof and roll to the ground. (I don’t know whether they have been rejected or they are to be gathered later.) My gardens are being put to rest in anticipation of winter. I have the urge to bake, and my home begins to smell of cinnamon, pumpkin, chi tea and cloves. What about you? Is autumn your favorite season? Do you get excited about Samhain or Halloween? Perhaps you celebrate Dia de los Muertos. Tell me about your favorite season and your seasonal traditions. What does this season mean to you? This season also means family too me. My immediate family is small, just my husband, myself and our son. But I count many more in my “chosen family.” So this is the time when I create protection products. You’ll find everything from “Protection from Negative Energy” dressed candles to Florida Water. There is of course “Dragon’s Blood Salts” and “Protection Powder.” If you are new to conjure/hoodoo I hope you are able to attend my classes in person, but if not, please take the time to look at the blog, you might find the information you are looking for there. If not please feel free to e-mail me. Happy Fall y’all.
