The Making of Circe's Wand






Circe was an ancient Greek Goddess of Magic.

You can visit Circe's Island   HERE

The base of the wand is an Ash branch, covered with metallic fabrics and threads
and pointed with a clear quartz crystal.

Happiness Altar







This is my Samhain Happiness Altar .

The painting behind is "I am the Weaver of Dreams,she said" .






The crystals are beaming out happiness !








Silver bird candle bought in a local Mexican shop .

The pink hydrangea is the last from my garden .
















Samhain marks the halfway point between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice.

In past times, in Celtic lands, it was known as the Festival of Fairies and Feast of the Dead.

In old Irish Samhain means  "summer's end"  -  time to stock up
and retreat indoors for the cold dark winter months .
