Tonight is Samhain - Halloween. In many cultures it is a time to honor the dead. I spent the weekend attending the Land of Enchantment Tarot Symposium. We did many spreads around the Death card. We built an altar to honor our loved ones who have passed on. I placed two of my paintings on the altar, one of my mother and one of my grandparents. When it is said that the veil between the worlds is thinnest at this time. I understand it to mean that we can communicate with our ancestors.
