Celebrating change, working with a thin veil for communication with the dead, and working with the death energy isn’t limited to the end of October. No, the veil is actually at its thinnest point the second week of November.
As I explained in an article on my personal site a few years back:
“Saturn in Scorpio (October 23- November 22) is the right combination that causes thinning of the veil to begin with, and October 31 is kind of right in there. But that’s the key phrase right there. Saturn (planet ruling Death) in Scorpio (the most psychic of the sun signs). Genuine Saturn in Scorpio cycles happen about every 28-30 years and last for about 2-2.5 years. Sure, you’ll get Saturn influence in Scorpio every year, but it’s nothing like a true Saturn in Scorpio transit. (Which we had from 2012-2015 – hence the huge spike in the interest in necromancy during those years if you recall.)
So while the veil may always thin a little bit around October 31, it actually peaks around the second week of November and is really only at its thinnest point every 28-30 years. Expect the next cycle in 2042 or thereabouts.”
Rite to Eurynomous is done between October 26-November 2 by most Daemonolatry sects each year to mark the beginning of the season of the Death Daemonic.
During this ritual (and this season in general) ancestors are honored, life milestones are celebrated, and necromantic magick is practiced.
Where can you get more information?
You can find a general Rite to Eurynomous in Modern Demonolatry, available for free on this website.
You can check out the book Honoring Death to learn more about the Death Daemonic.
If you are into necromantic magick, you can check out Keys of Ocat: A Grimoire of Daemonolatry Nygromancye
What are some traditional practices?
For those who are sensitive to spirits of the dead, and who need to keep their personal space spirit free, wear a piece of magnetite blessed by Ba’alberith.
If you whisper the name of your dearly departed into the November wind, they will come to you in a dream.
Keep the seal of Eurynomous under your bed between late October to mid November to speak with the dead in your dreams.
Hang an equal armed cross made of animal bones (chicken bones are fine) outside your front door to ward spirits from your home.
Paint pumpkins and other squash with the sigils of the Death Daemonic to welcome their season. These can later be prepared and consumed to draw in those strong Daemonic forces to help your family weather all the changes of the coming year.
