Halloween brainstorming
« on: October 11, 2017, 12:22:05 am »

This is my first post on the forums so far, its good to be here, recently ive been a little more active in the IRC and facebook, and now here!
Now down to business, Halloween is just three weeks away, which I believe is more than enough time to plan a large group working. Halloween is a perfect night for DKMU projects, the veil is thinnest, and best of all everyone thinks the veil is thinnest. Halloween this year is on a Tuesday, associated with Mars and the color scarlet which works out well for Ellis. I would like to see this go somewhere in the direction of infusing Ellis with all the spooky ghost stuff that normally goes on.
What do you all think?

Sounds interesting :) Welcome to the Forum!

You might find some inspiration in 2014's Halloween material https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=140.15

I personally am not a very calendarial person and don't really connect to "special dates" -- I try to make every "normal" day good and magickal :) So I'm not really the right person to answer here. However, the day before I plan to be in Munich and hopefully get us a tag or two there ;)

I might find some semi-hidden wooded spot close to the river and make a little ritual with some candles, charge some sigils that way. Maybe get a Black Robe, so that if anyone sees me it will be taken as fun? :) I begin to like where this is going. Basically Halloween as "Night of Public Magick".

Edit: On Facebook, Frater Alysyrose posted this Sigil:



He says: "Sigil for lifting the veil. Halloween 2017."

Edit2: Here's a link to a square version I created. That's easier to print on the public photo-printers we have in some shops: https://s1.postimg.org/1cencmam8v/Lift_The_Veil_Square.jpg

Edit3: Multiple coloured versions were created by the awesome folks :) You can find them in the Halloween-Thread if you're in the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/DomusKaoticaMarauderUnderground/permalink/1838190526210708/

Some ideas that my house has been considering:


1. Don black robes, go trick or treating to collect offerings and snacks
2. Paint squares of flat plywood to make sigil plates, like little mini altars that can be left around. We might hook them together to be like a convenient teleport grid for wandering spirits, with candy nearby for sustenance, and probably incorporate the LS.
3. Summon the ghosts of ancestral magicians and ask them for advice, omens, etc. One idea was to auto-write messages and then tie them to balloons and let them fly to reach their intended target. I kind of wanted to give them access to the internet somehow, but I don't know how I would do it, unless I could get in enough of a trance to let them speak through me onto here or one of the facebooks.


Moonlight, I can see what Roommates think of doing our summoning ritual in public. That seems to happen anyway... But these aren't hard plans yet.

Today I found a nice little spot for the ritual.  :) 
It in a small wooded part of a nearby park and some folks apparently wanted to build something there, so there are wooden (My english breaks down :D) stillages? palletes? [Those wooden things which fork-lifters lift with stuff on it :D] lying around, so I can build a makeshift table to put the candles and the photo on.

Obviously, the place needs some preparation :D :



Since tonight the veil is thinnest
We will make the Magick rise
Show the world variety's wonder
Make the truth clear to all eyes
