Happy Samhain! For witches, Halloween is not just a joyous, tricksy day but a hallowed one—literally. This is the first day of a blessed new year, a time when the darkness glows with our biggest, most beautiful selves. Tonight the veil is lifted, and divination is not only possible but probable. It is also, not to put too fine a point on it, a powerful day in terms of divine female energy. So it’s no coincidence that the Trussian oligarchy is finally being dragged into the light this week. Cockocracy has no shot when all the lady magic emerges in full force. Our big, no-bullshit Hera-Sophia-Athena-Oshun-Yemaya-Mary light is poised to outshine everything that needs to return to the shadows. Eat some pumpkin, dance with the moon, and remember: For as long as they’ve tried to demonize sister outsiders, we’ve only grown more radiant.
