Ancestor Season, Part 2: Spirits Of The Land

October is also a good time to connect with the Spirits of the Land, since these entities are also part of your spiritual family. If you want to make offerings, do your research so they are not toxic to the local fauna, and do not leave any traces of your rituals.

Things like chocolate can kill many animals, not to mention candle wax, chalk, and other magical products. Offerings like bread/cakes, cheese/milk, honey, birdseed, nuts, and fruits or vegetables are always safe options.

Something that everyone can do when visiting Nature, and that the Spirits of the place will definitely appreciate, is that you clean the area where you are working/celebrating – and I mean cleaning trash that you didn’t leave there. The Spirits are watching, the Spirits notice, and the Spirits will (sometimes) return the favour.

Depending on where you live in the world, you can do some very special wildharvesting this month – if it’s too late for fruits or herbs, think woods for carving charms or dolls, water from wells and streams, or even a beautiful rock. Remember to be extremely respectful, ask for permission, and always give as much as you take.

I do not want to end this article without saying what I think is the most important piece of advice I can give:

Never forget that the place is not yours; you are of the place.

You are not there to be heard; you are there to listen, to watch, and to learn.

Spirits don’t owe you a single thing; be a humble friend if you want to truly see what is there to see.
