The name November means “ninth month” as it was the Ninth month of the ancient Roman calendar. It is the 11th month of the Julian and Gregorian calendars.


In witchcraft, November is a time of reflection, gratitude, and honoring the ancestors. As the last month of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, witches focus on connecting with their roots and the wisdom of those who came before them.

November is associated with the festival of Samhain’s continuation, where the veil between the worlds is thinnest, allowing for easier communication with spirits and ancestors.

Witches may engage in rituals and ceremonies to honor and remember their ancestors, express gratitude for the abundance of the harvest season, and prepare for the quiet introspection of winter.

They may also work with symbols such as candles, leaves, and images of departed loved ones, and may participate in divination practices to gain guidance and insight from the spirit world.

Magickal Practices in November

November is a month of honoring the dead, ancestral connection, and spiritual growth in witchcraft, marked by the festivals of Samhain and Day of the Dead.

It’s a time to honor ancestors, remember loved ones who have passed, and deepen connections with the spirit world.

We often engage in rituals, spells, and meditations that reflect the themes of remembrance, honoring the dead, and spiritual growth, aligning themselves with the cycles of life and death and the mysteries of the spirit realm.

Ancestor AltarsWitches often create ancestor altars during November, adorned with photos, mementos, and offerings to honor deceased loved ones. Altars serve as focal points for rituals, meditation, and communication with ancestors.
DivinationNovember is a potent time for divination, especially related to connecting with ancestors and gaining insights from the spirit world. Witches may use tarot cards, scrying mirrors, pendulums, or other divination tools to seek guidance and wisdom.
Spirit CommunicationWith the veil between worlds thin during November, witches may engage in spirit communication practices such as meditation, trance work, or séances to connect with ancestors and spirits. These practices facilitate guidance, healing, and messages from the other side.
