Thousands of rituals and spells have been composed for Samhain. On this night when the boundaries of life and death are blurred we honor our ancestors, and we remember others who have passed over that we never knew. What has been part of our past shapes our future. This Samhain we might also want to look forward. Someday we will be the past that helped shape someone else's future. Janus was the two-faced Roman god for whom January is named. One face looks to the past, the other to the future. Turn to face the west, the land of the dead and the deities, saying:

Janus, who looks into the night toward the place where spirits seek light,
bless all souls who come now as they hear it, and dance in the circle of spirit.

Turn to face the east, the point of the rising Sun, away from death and into the promise of a new day, saying:

Janus, who into the day at dawn's first glow and Sun's first ray, bless this circle without hesitation, and fear not the past nor times not yet here.
