The Solstice is almost here and it’s time to gather in ritual and celebration.
From the 20-23rd we have the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.
❄️ Winter Solstice ❄️
𝘈𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘞𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘚𝘰𝘭𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘦, Yule, we reach the height of darkness. Marking the time at which we reach the longest night and the shortest day.
The waning of Father Sun stops as he reaches his lowest point in the sky and from now on, will steadily climb with each day growing in length.
We often hibernate when the weather is cold and miserable. Seeking comfort and warmth, slowing down and being less active and creative. Now comes the time to begin our energetic reawakening.
We celebrate the return of the Sun and take the time to choose our dreams and visions to grow alongside the growing light. We also look back at how we have journeyed through these introspective times since the cooling of the Earth. We acknowledge what we have completed and reflect upon the insight and understanding that was delivered to us as we slowed down to listen.
𝐃𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐅𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: This is a potent time to connect with your inner realms and sensuality. Dancing, moving meditation, touch and pleasure will keep your flame alight in these colder months. What does it feel like to go deeply within?

☀️ Summer Solstice ☀️
𝘚𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘞𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘚𝘰𝘭𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘦, we have watched the light linger a little longer each day, bringing with it more warmth and a stirring of life. Litha, the Summer Solstice, marks the time at which we reach the longest day and the shortest night. The time of year known as the tide of reaping.
We take this time to count our blessings, to show gratitude for what we have and share our abundance. Spend time in nature, absorbing Mama Earths magnificent gift of life sustaining elements.
At the Summer Solstice, we embrace the creativity and energy that the extended light has to offer us. Celebrations can be fun, a coming together of family and friends to enjoy food, with games and music to entertain and delight. Dress up and enjoy letting go, embracing play. Stay up all night and together watch the sun rise the next day.
𝐃𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐅𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: Your Creativity wants to be unleashed! How can you fully express yourself and shine your light in this world? How can you share your gifts with others?

“Round and Round,
The Earth is turning.
Always turning into Morning.
And from morning round again.
Round and Round,
The Earth is turning
Seasons, cycles, dying, birthing
Winter making way for Spring”
