TODAY!! One-day only event!
Hey! Are you tired of Guitar Center, Monster truck madness, and giant used-car tent extravaganzas having all the fun? Well we have a sale-a-bration for you!
(And it's today only)
As you may, or may not know, today is Samhain. The real Samhain. Trick or treat day was a week ago and I hope everyone got lots of candy, slutted it up (for those of you who are into that kind of debauchery), and watched scary movies. Now it's time to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
Samhain is 15 degrees Scorpio--the exact middle of Fall, or "the Fall of the Solar Year." This is when the veil between the living and the dead is said to be at its thinnest. Thus it is the perfect time to dig yourself a grave for old, nasty, worn-out, bad, unhappy habits, ex-friends, ex-'s of any kind really, old jobs, boring lives, and anything else you want to get rid of, bury, put to rest, and never hear from gain.
That's what you would say if you were using the infamous "Take this ____ and shove it!" spell. You can use any words you like, but today is a great day to burn a bridge or two. there are even songs about quitting, leaving, saying "Goodbye to You!" and whatnot to help strengthen your resolve and cement the last few nails in the coffin as you kick old garbage to the curb (for the trash man to come and haul it away).
I have done this before (several times actually) and it is a grand and glorious feeling to remove yourself from rubbish, and release yourself from restrictive bonds you have outgrown. "Just do it!" Get a small container (like a coffee can or something) and make it an impromptu trash can. Start gathering clutter (and actual trash! -- nothing like a banana peel and some coffee grounds to make your point) and things that represent your undesired nuisances and toss them in as well. Get a piece of paper and write down descriptions or draw pictures of anything you don't have a physical representation of.
You can do this is you are a witch, or christian, a buddhist, voodoo, hoodoo, or any other path of belief (sorry if I didn't include yours--my fingers are tired from all of this typing). Just get rid of unwantables today, and start your new life tomorrow! It's like a mini New-Years "rebirth" but you get a head start on everyone else. You also have the flow of the energy of the world around you to push you along downstream.
Of course you can also do this tomorrow if you miss your chance today--but instead of a 100% off sale-everything-must-go extravaganza, it will be more like a "50% off event!" DON'T put this off, or you will miss out!
