Astrid didn’t need a costume, as she embodied the perfect Halloween bunny last night with her mysterious dark brindled coat of shape-shifting markings, silver toes, belly, and tail, and a Crescent Moon eye. I took this photo of her last night right after the sun set and my auto flash went off, which not only captured two giant orbs around her body, but caught the light just right creating a red and gold Moon in her eye. I’m guessing that Cosmo and my other bunny loves wanted to make an appearance. Astrid was definitely in a calm zone, not wanting me to leave her and kept nosing my leg to get my attention and transfer energy. She was definitely comforting me with my Cosmo thoughts.
I’d just finished my first run-through of reading my book from start to end, since completing it, which included a first round of simple edits and cutting my superfluous writing down 23 pages so far. That felt perfect to complete on this special day, which had so many connections to Cosmo and much more. I still have more rounds of editing to go – it’s quite a process – perhaps completing by end of year (my goal) before it will be in a form for feedback from others.
For now, I remain the only person who has read any of it and that feels perfect in remaining true to my voice.
This is something my bunny loves have taught me the importance of…remembering my song and singing it.
It was a quiet day and evening, which felt perfect for honoring my sweet Cosmo, tuning in with my bunny loves, and for focusing on the other joy of my heart – my book.
Even the sky reflected this calm and mystery in a perfect Samhain sunset of orange and black clarity.
I snapped this photo before the one of Astrid.
The veils were definitely thin and the love was definitely strong.

Wishing everyone a mystical, magical and revealing Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve, Samhain, as the Celtic neopagans and Wiccans know this Gaelic festival to be, or whatever resonates most with you.
Having this day follow the very powerful Taurus Full Moon, indeed lends to the energy of transformative endings, seeing more deeply to the core, understanding the product of your inner harvest, and reaching through the veils to the heart of your values and beliefs to create the new.
For a few fun, brief insights about some of the most popular Halloween symbols perhaps you’ll enjoy Avia Venefica’s “Meaning of Halloween Symbols” from her awesome site that shares a plethora of symbolic meanings: www.whats-your-sign.com .
I happened upon photos of my dearly departed Nestor from her last Halloween on this Earth and being that she is so literally and symbolically magical (you can read about hare/rabbit symbolism here: Hare Symbolism for the New Earth – Birthing the Cosmic Egg) and always helped me to look beyond the veil, I felt to share one here.
Enjoy the magical alchemy of this now experience.
Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,
All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon’s silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play.
