As we continue to venture towards the longest night of the year we may experience dark illusions and meet strange creatures. One of these is the lady, who materialised, seemingly from nowhere, one recent evening and insisted in reading the Tarot for me. When we were finished she vanished into thin air before my eyes.
The period from the end of October to the winter solstice is a wonderfully mystical time when all sorts of mysterious things can happen. My vision of Samhain is a goddess dancing around the fire, conjuring up the unseen forces that inhabit this dark time of the year, when the boundaries between reality and mythology disappear.
