Salve Sua Estrela!

Dia 31 de Outubro é comemorado o tão famoso Halloween ou Dia das Bruxas.

A comemoração americana que foi ganhando espaço em vários lugares do mundo é um dos dias mais importantes para bruxos ao redor do universo. Isso porque nesta data é comemorado o festival de Samhain e para entender melhor, vamos voltar ao tempo onde iniciou-se este evento.

Origem do Halloween

A origem da festa do Halloween possui uma grande trajetória, ela surgiu com os celtas, povo que acreditava em diversos deuses relacionados com os animais e as forças da natureza.

Os celtas celebravam o festival de Samhain, o qual tinha a duração de 3 dias, com início no dia 31 de outubro. Nela, além de se comemorar o fim do verão, comemorava-se a passagem do ano celta, que tinha início no dia 1 de novembro.

Acreditava-se que nesse dia os mortos se levantavam e se apoderavam dos corpos dos vivos. Por esse motivo, eram usadas fantasias sombrias com o intuito principal de se defenderem desses maus espíritos.

Mais tarde, durante a Idade Média, a Igreja começou a condenar o evento, e daí surgiu o nome “Dia das Bruxas”.

Durante esse tempo, os curandeiros eram considerados bruxos e por se posicionarem contra os dogmas da Igreja, eles eram queimados na fogueira.

Assim, na tentativa de afastar o caráter pagão da festa, a igreja promoveu alterações no calendário, de modo que o Dia de Todos os Santos passou a ser comemorado no dia 1 de novembro, o que antes acontecia no dia 13 de maio.

Festival Samhain

Samhain (pronuncia-se Sou-ein), festejado em 31 de outubro no hemisfério Norte e em 1º de maio no hemisfério Sul, é o Ano-Novo dos Bruxos. Esse dia sagrado é conhecido por inúmeros nomes. Para muitos, talvez, o mais conhecido seja Halloween. Para os Bruxos é a festa na qual honram seus ancestrais e aqueles que já tenham partido para o Outro Mundo.

Essa é a noite em que o mundo material tem mais contato com o mundo espiritual e o contato com seus ancestrais tornam-se mais fácil. É também o momento tradicional para celebrar a última das colheitas e se preparar para o Verão.

Samhain é a noite em que o Velho Rei morre e a Deusa Anciã lamenta sua ausência nas próximas seis semanas. O Sol está em seu ponto mais baixo no horizonte, de acordo com as medições feitas através das antigas pedras da Britânia e da Irlanda, razão pela qual os Celtas escolheram esse Sabbat (dia de adoração a uma divindade), em vez de Yule (Solstício de Inverno), para representar o Ano-Novo. Para os Antigos Celtas, esse dia sagrado divide o ano em duas estações, Inverno e Verão. Samhain era o dia no qual começavam o Ano-Novo celta e o Inverno, por isso era um tempo ideal para términos e começos.

Samhain é um festival do fogo e é a entrada para a parte sombria e fria da Roda do Ano. É em Samhain que as fogueiras são acesas para que os espíritos do outro mundo possam encontrar os caminhos para partirem ao Outro Mundo.

Samhain é o tempo de lembrarmos com amor aqueles que partiram para o outro lado, por isso é chamado de a Festa Ancestral. Toda a família, ou grupo, se reúne para reverenciar os que já partiram. É muito comum nesse Sabbat se realizar uma ceia em silêncio, conectando-se com aqueles que já cruzaram os portais dos mundos. É tradicional também deixar um lugar à mesa para os ancestrais e lhes servir pratos como se eles estivessem presentes à ceia.

Para aqueles que não têm família para festejar e celebrar seus ancestrais, alimentos geralmente são deixados do lado de fora de casa, na porta de entrada, em homenagem aos familiares e amigos desencarnados.

É também tradicional deixar uma vela acesa na janela da casa para ajudar a guiar os espíritos ao longo de sua caminhada ao nosso mundo para que possam encontrar o caminho de volta.

Samhain é um dos quatro grandes Sabbats e muitas vezes é considerado o Grande Sabbat.

Por ser o maior de todos e o mais importante também, todos os Pagãos consideram Samhain como a noite mais mágica do ano. Muitas práticas adivinhatórias foram associadas a Samhain, as mais comuns eram aquelas que prenunciavam casamentos e fortunas para o próximo ano que estava se iniciando.

Uma das tradições mais comuns praticadas pelos povos antigos era a de colocar várias maçãs em um grande barril de água. Várias mulheres se reuniam em volta do barril, e a primeira que conseguisse pegar uma das maçãs seria a primeira a casar no próximo ano.

Na Escócia, colocavam-se pedras entre as cinzas da lareira, deixando-as “descansar” durante a noite. Se alguma pedra fosse descoberta durante a noite, representaria a morte iminente durante o próximo ano de um dos moradores da residência.

Sem sombra de dúvida a prática mais famosa do Samhain é o Jack O’Lantern (máscaras de abóboras), que sobrevive até hoje nas modernas celebrações do Halloween.

As máscaras eram utilizadas por pessoas que precisavam sair durante a noite de Samhain. As sombras provocadas pela face esculpida na abóbora tinham a virtude de afastar os maus espíritos e todos os seres do outro mundo que vinham para perturbar. Máscaras de abóboras também eram colocadas nas janelas e em frente à porta de entrada para proteger toda a casa.

O costume americano de se vestir com trajes típicos e sair pelas casas dizendo “Doces ou Travessuras”, nas noites de Halloween, é de origem céltica. Nos tempos antigos, o costume não era comum às crianças, mas sim aos adultos. Em tempos ancestrais, os vagantes iam cantando cânticos da época de casa em casa e eram presenteados com agrados pelo seus habitantes. O presente também era requerido pelos espíritos ancestrais nessa noite através de oferendas.

O Deus neste período é identificado com os animais que eram sacrificados para continuidade da vida.

Samhain é um tempo para a reflexão, no qual olhamos para o ano mágico que passou e estabelecemos as metas para nossa vida no ano que entra.

E essa é a verdadeira história do Halloween, a festa tão popular entre os jovens e que aterrorizam as noites do dia 31.

    Buying and Access. Of the different types of “uncertain sex” cannabis plants, plants with mixed-sex buds (especially hermies with bananas) are the least predictable and this can make them more likely to cause unwanted pollination. This is partially because bananas may be hidden in the buds, and they don’t have a pollen sac that needs to burst to pollinate buds – it will start pollinating almost immediately.

    LST is a beginner-friendly training technique. You’re essentially just bending and tying down stems during vegetative growth to manipulate plants into growing horizontally. LST can be combined with other techniques, such as ScrOG. It is often done together with topping to break apical dominance, but it can also be performed without topping on autoflowers. Between 2–4 plants trained with LST can effectively fill 1m².

    Most homes are equipped with a boiler room. The water boiler happens to be a very useful “gizmo” for drying buds as it provides for the necessary and consistent temperature to get the job done. And the fact that relative humidly is low always helps.
    The boiling point of isopropyl alcohol is 180.7В°F/82.6В°C and the boiling point of ethyl alcohol is 173.1В°F/78.4В°C. So a heat source that can provide a higher temperature than the boiling point of the solvent you have is needed.
