Samhain is a time of mystery. As we enter the darkest time of the year, we are called to turn inward and explore our own mystery. In our rituals, we invoke Goddesses of the underworld – Hecate, Ereshkigal, Hel, and Persephone. It is the time of year when the veil thins. This allows us to connect with those who have come before us — our ancestors. Samhain is also a time of play and prophecy. We dress up, don masks, and bring our hidden faces out to play. We consult oracles to see what is ahead in the months to come.
We sing their songs and make offerings to the dead. We ask for their guidance in the coming year. That’s why I’ve created this playlist of Samhain music. What better way to practice our favorite Pagan celebration!
This playlist draws from all these aspects of Samhain. There is Samhain music on this playlist that is atmospheric and mysterious. Other Halloween songs are lively and playful, and a few more are sacred and magical. I hope you find it inspiring and that it helps set the mood for whatever aspect of Samhain you celebrate.
