Halloween Year Ahead Spread
On This Day
It was believed spirits roamed the earth and played tricks on this night. Treats were given to appease mischievous sprites, and hollowed jack-o’-lanterns were illuminated to scare malicious spirits away. This paved the way for modern practices.
For many, tonight is the most delicious night of the year. Tarot card readers, witches, spooks, spirits, and all manner of supernatural creatures party today. The veil between living and dead is thinnest, it is the most auspicious night for divination, chocolate and candy are doled out to offset tricks, and everyone gets a chance to pretend they are someone or something else.
