Today finds me feeling blah blah still but I'm making cake with the offspring in honour of the sun's birthday. #raisingawitchling
And I'm feeling the season this year.
The light returns--in comparsion to where I was and how I was feeling this time, last year, yeah I feel it in my bones this year and I'm grateful that over these months, with intention so much has healed.
Happy Winter Solstice!
“Something in us needs to know that at the end of the longest night, there will be light.
In connecting with the natural world in a way that honors the sacred immanent in all things, we establish a resonance with the seasons. Ritual helps to shift our consciousness to reflect the outer world inside our inner landscape: the sun stands still within us, and time changes. After the longest night, we sing up the dawn. There is a rejoicing that, even in the darkest time, the sun is not vanquished. Sol Invictus — the Unconquered Sun — is seen once again, staining the horizon with the promise of hope and brilliance.”
