Halloween, or Samhain as it originally was called, is associated today, in the 21st century, with parties, costumes, trick-or-treating, haunted houses and horror films. Yet this ancient fall festival has strong spiritual and symbolic traditions that reflect the importance of this time. Known as the true end of summer, Halloween was a time of mystery, portents and divination.
For those searching for a new romance, Halloween may well be a time to look beyond the veil of the physical realm to see what can be learned from realm of spirits and psychic energy.
If you are dating more than one person (or interested in more than person although not yet involved), you may want to try this old Scottish practice to help you focus your future in love and relationships.
Take hazelnuts and put the initials of your love interests on them. If you have access to a working fireplace, light a fire and throw the labeled nuts in. When the fire dies down, check to see which nut (or nuts) has survived the flames. Those that have not burned symbolize the seed of an enduring romance. If all have burned, then none of the potential partners are worthy of your heart. When more than one remains, you know that, at the very least, they both have possibilities for a long term romance.
Another ritual from the British Isles involves taking apple peels and throwing it over your shoulder. If the peels appear to form letters, these are thought to be the initials of a future lover or partner.
There is an echo of ancient Rome in the use of apples since Pomona was the Roman goddess of fruit trees and orchards whose role was to protect and encourage the fruits of the earth. In fact, the French word for apple is “pomme”. Clearly, the fruits of a new romance would be within the purview of this ancient nature spirit.
Another divination practice involves standing in front of a mirror in a dark room (preferably a bedroom) at midnight on Halloween. Holding a candle, look into your reflection and allow your mind and heart to open to the universe. At the point where you feel suspended between worlds (and, yes, you will experience that sensation if you allow yourself the freedom to do so) send forth the thought: “Show me my lover”. It is said that the face of the person you will be with will appear just over your shoulder.
Seeking the guidance of a psychic reader or metaphysical adviser is also an option and consulting a practitioner, especially on Halloween can help you understand and interpret some of the “messages” you have received. Know that seeking advice from the universe during this season is a practice followed through the ages and that the answers to your questions are there for the knowing. You have but to ask them.
