Happy Samhain, Sojourners!
Samhain (pronounced Sow-Wen) is the pagan holiday of high-autumn, that is most closely related to Halloween or Dia de los Muertos. It is at this time that we prepare for the coming rest of winter. We remember our beloved ancestors at a special feast, and release fears and attachments that are holding us back. This way we can keep evolving and improving ourselves. Check out this link more information.
The precise moment of Samhain, according to astrological timing, is when the sun reaches 15 degrees of Scorpio. This year, that date falls on Nov. 7th. However, modern pagans celebrate those energetic tides anywhere from Oct. 31 through the first weeks of November.
So that our staff may celebrate this holiest day of our year, the Sojourner will close at 2:00 tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018.) We hope you will understand!
We have much exciting new merchandise in the shop, including new leather journals and a restock of herbs, essential oils and natural soaps this week. Come see us soon!
