10:21 am - Beginning again
I have never really thought of Samonios as the beginning of a new year. Sure, we like to talk about it that way here in Paganism, and occasionally, you'll see "new years resolutions" float around various Pagan lists or LJs, but I've always seen these as just generally being silly ways of being rather. . . "in your face" about Paganism—as if we're obligated to do something just because we think we ought to advertise our faith.

But today, on November 1, 2006, I feel that sort of change. I look at my life and see the new beginnings before me.

I don't think that I was expecting that. These feelings are odd to me.

As I work and re-work the next update for Chronarchy.Com (coming soon, this website not yet rated), I find myself concentrating on the words on the index page, the page that will tell people what I've been up to, what I'm doing, and where I'm going. Several radical changes have been made to that page over the past three weeks, and it's still not right.

I think that I'll keep working for a bit longer.

The omens from 3CG's Samhain rite were these:

Dagaz: a new day.

Kenaz: the torches in the hall.

Isa: continue, keep working, watch for danger, don't stagnate.

These posts will eventually decryptify, I promise. I just. . . need to make sense in my head before I can make sense in cyberspace.

Even before I was Pagan, it always seemed odd to me that the New Year didn't start in the Fall. January 1st always struck me as an artificial New Year's Day. The Jewish New Year starts in the Fall, near the Equinox, but since I wasn't raised Jewish, I recognize Samhain as the start of my New Year.

Good luck in reconfiguring your life. It's always an...entertaining...process.
