Samhain's Magic Circle T-shirt, unisex
This variant is currently sold out
Wheels and magic circles have been used by magical practitioners dating back to ancient cultures. The wheel acts as a graphical microcosm of the universe itself and represents the sorceress’s relation to her surroundings and available energies. Samhain’s Magic Circle embodies the origins, traditions, lore, and symbols pertaining to the fire festival of Samhain (sow-inn), celebrated around this time of year (October 31st) to mark the harvest and dying of the earth as the winter months set in.
Samhain, meaning “summer’s end” in Gaelic, is an ancient Celtic fire festival that is often referred to as the Pagan New Year, for it marks the start of the Autumn and Winter months known as the “dark” half of the year. As a way of closing out the year and starting fresh, Samhain is a time of reflection on events throughout the past year as well as remembering ancestors and communing with the spirit world. Many of the traditions and lore of Halloween stem from Samhain; however, they are two separate holidays. Halloween is a non-secular, modernized celebration of mischief and horror whereas Samhain is a spiritual celebration focused on ancestor worship and ensuring protection of the hearth and home throughout the winter. Although different, many of the Halloween traditions we practice today have their roots in the pagan festival of Samhain.
Samhain's Magic Circle is original artwork drawn by Adrienne Rozzi. Printed with white ink on black unisex t-shirts made in the USA. 100% ring-spun combed cotton.
