thoughts on election eve

i don't think it's any accident that we will elect our next president essentially during samhain. i don't think it's any accident senator obama's grandmother chose to cross before the election. season of the hag, season of transcendence and transformation, of rebirth, and the seeds of new life... the stars themselves line up for change. the old mindsets must pass away, because the world is turning into another sort of place, kicking and screaming, perhaps, but a world where community and cooperation will be valued over competition and greed.

i hope in this election those of us with the ability to peer fearlessly into the darkest night and see dawn's first glimmer will trump those who can only gaze fruitlessly into the past. i hope those of us who have Faith will prove that there are more of us than there are of those who only have fear.

i hope that as wednesday dawns - my grammy's birthday, in fact (and guy fawkes day, too, that rollicking old anarchist who tried to blow up Parliament) - it really WILL be, as in the words of ronald reagan, Morning in america.

so im not going to say go out and vote tomorrow. im going to tell you to go out and vote for obama. if you plan on voting for mccain, do yourself the favor, save the strain on your heart and stay home in your rocking chair.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

You gave me a real LOL on that last paragraph!

Humanling says merely by looking at the photographs of the candidates or upon hearing their names, that Obama is going to win.

I know there's always a first time but .... she's uncannily right most of the time and has been since she was wee. She's a Capricorn with a Virgo Moon and Leo rise....there's no telling her 2 + 2 doesn't equal 9 because she'll argue it and rewrite the universe so that it fits.

So Obama is in. =)

I too feel that the passing of Obama's grandmother, Toot, at this time was not a coincidence. I pray for their family as well as for the Democrats winning the election, preferably in a landslide.

From your lips to the ears of my and my husbands crazy family. May the sisters-in-love unite as we are all voting for Obama.

amen sista! I have been thinking about the timing of this election, where the Universe is right now, and the shift I can feel in our body. All of us witches should have planned a Universal raising of power at the same time today!! Blessed Be! And Power to the People!
