Midwinter. Yule. The ancient origin of many well-loved traditions we still celebrate as part of Christmas. Winter Solstice marks the longest night, a time of faith, and the time of the turning of the Wheel of the Year, as we once again anticipate welcoming back the light. Anciently Midwinter fires were lit and in Celtic lands, the Yule log brought in with ceremony. Winter Solstice is a season of deep magic and faith, a potent time for release, renewal and rebirth.
In the mythic cycle of the Goddess, this is the season of the hag, she who releases herself to rebirth. Far different than the hectic busy-ness of Christmas, Midwinter is a season of quiet, reflection, taking stock and deep listening to our own inner wisdom. It is time of potent dreaming and genesis time of feeling into what we want to create in the coming new year.
We are celebrating Winter Solstice a bit early this year, in consideration of the actual date being on the last weekend before Christmas. The actual date for Winter Solstice 2019 is December 21, 2019 at 11.19 PM EST. The energies begin to come in 2 days before, so we will welcome the transition into the Solstice window. Join us as we take time to reflect, acknowledge our gifts and what we have created this year, and release to make room to seed our heart's Desires for the new year to come.
