What’s New?

New to Where Faeries Live: taper candles! You’ve been asking for them for years and we finally found a supplier of high quality candles from Denmark. Smokeless, dripless, and coloured all the way through (not just dipped like some other candles), the coloured candles are seven inches long. The gold and silver candles are 10 inches long. Perfect for making spell candles or rituals that call for something a little larger than a 4 inch ritual candle.

Spirit Lantern Learning Circle

Samhain, for the Gaelic for “Summer’s End” is the third and final harvest and is generally held to be the Pagan New Year Festival.  It is a festival with many traditions associated with it, not the least of which being communication with the dead and divination of the future.  It is a time when the past and the future come together in the present and the veil between this world and the next is the thinnest, allowing the spirits of the departed to either return for a day and a night of revelry with their survivors or for the survivors to engage in psychopomp work (ushering their dead onward).  It is a time that reminds us that we are not eternal in this incarnation but that what comes afterwards is not to be feared, rather celebrated.  Please join us this night as we honor those who have gone before us and seek to divine a message of hope for those yet to come.

Date: Sunday, October 30th
Time: doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the rite begins promptly at 7:30 p.m.
Location: The Unitarian Church on 108th avenue and 119th street

This workshop is for the person who is interested or intrigued by Tarot, but lacks knowledge or skill with it. This course will take the participant through the history and origins of the tarot, how Hollywood has added mystery and mystique to tarot. Next, we will look at the variety of decks out there, and discuss other card divination systems out there.

Finally, we will get to know one another, and learn to do practice reading for each other in the class, and talk about how to read for others, ways to word interpretations for others, and the ethics of reading.
Participants will need a tarot deck and a notebook. Handouts will be provided. An opportunity to participate in a private elist to ask questions during the class, and online chat schedule will be available.

The Hunters Moon is the full moon of October. This is another symbolic moon name that’s obvious. This time represents the onset of prime hunting season.
