    Arrow What should I do for halloween?

    Okay so I'm a little confuzzled, should I do something for lady Demeter to help try and ease her sadness because of persephone's return to the underworld, do something for Hades and Persephone, or try to find a nice little ritual for all the gods?

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    The answer depends on tradition (not pantheon). Wiccans working with the Hellenic pantheon have one answer (which works for them and is fine for them as long as they don't start a history debate), various breeds of eclectic have a plethora of answers and various breeds of Hellenic recon have various answers. The recon answers are likely based on what is known about old Hellenic feast days and religious rites. If you like history homework then taking a page from recons can be rewarding and we have a few people roaming around with adequate knowledge to point you in a direction. Just understand that Reconstructionism even to a basic level involves a significant degree of homework.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    As a recon, I won't be doing anything. Despite the best (?} efforts of the supermarkets, it's still not a London thing. You could treat it as a civic festival, like Thanksgiving, or as some-one else's party that everyone gatecrashes, like Christmas. Otherwise, just follow your instinct: if you're an eclectic, it's a case of your religion, your rules!

    Communing with the spirits is a very common theme at this time of year. It seems to spread beyond nationality, pantheon, and religion.
    Couple that with the dark moon on the 30th and new moon on the 31st and is will make for a wonderful time of quiet communion.
    Celebrate the lives of those passed and their spiritual presence today.

    I'd forgotten the Moon! Since Monday is the last day of the lunar month, on Sunday night I'll have a little festival for Hekate.
