Happy Winter Solstice~

Winter Solstice Blessings to you all~  Welcome back sun, welcome back light.  Giving thanks for the darkness, for our journeys that went in and down, for the learning and the wisdom gleaned in these dark months. Let us sing and dance and celebrate the turning of the wheel, another cycle ending whilst another is beginning.  Let us ask ourselves...What are we leaving behind? What are we moving toward? What have we uncovered in the darkness?  Where are we heading, as the sun illumines the path before us, and we can see the beauty of this life all around...

This morning the world is covered in a soft snowy blanket of whiteness, the house is warm and cozy, still filled with the warmth of the smiling friends who gathered together with us last night to celebrate the return of the sun, to share food, and stories, and laughter. Gus and are heading to the woods to walk amongst the whiteness and the trees.  

To the Sun then, happy birthday sun!  I welcome back your returning strength, and as you are reborn, so are we.  Let us bring the wisdom of our inner journeys into the outer world and as the light comes back, let the fiery warmth fuel the positive changes and creations we are manifesting.

Blessed Be.
