Winter Solstice Blessings

winter solstice1

In the midst of the holiday chaos, the winter solstice brings a moment of complete silence.  December 21, 2015, (23:03 UT) marks the solstice—Winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Winter solstice occurs for the Northern Hemisphere in December and for the Southern Hemisphere in June.

The winter solstice is a time of reflection, during the darkest and longest night of the year. A time to spend with family and friends. A time to imagine what the coming year will bring. As an expression in nature, the Winter Solstice is the time to reflect on the power of our spiritual beliefs and the belief in the power of ourselves!

The winter solstice, the rebirth of the Sun, is an important turning point, as it marks the shortest day. Yule is deeply rooted in the cycle of the year, it is the seed time of year, the longest night and the shortest day, where the Goddess once again becomes the Great Mother and gives birth to the new Sun King.

The Scandinavian and Germanic people of northern Europe celebrated a twelve-day “midwinter” (winter solstice) holiday called Yule  Many modern Christmas traditions, such as the Christmas tree, the Christmas wreath, the Yule log, and others, are direct descendents of Yule customs.

Herbs: Holly, mistletoe, pine cones, pine needles, oak leaves, Yule log ashes, fir, birch, hazel bark, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, wintergreen

Colors: Red, green, white, gold, silver

Here Are Some Wonderful Suggestions to Start Winter Solstice Traditions

Feed the Wildlife – String cereal onto thread and drape it across the bare branches of trees for the wildlife to share… some apples too, hung on a thread. This is a wonderful gift to the creatures that share our world in the night, the longest night of the year.

Eat by Candlelight -Welcome the return of the sun by eating in only candlelight and firelight… thank the sun for all of its strength and energy, and for bringing light into our lives.

Release The Old You can use this ceremony to release any old thoughts, patterns or unwanted energy from 2015. Just write down whatever comes, draw a picture. Sometimes words are not needed.

Welcome The New -.One of the most important things that you can do is write out your hopes and dreams for 2016 on slips of paper, then light them on fire by candles or fireplace and watch as the paper transforms to smoke… carrying your intentions out to the universe. Your energy and intention is not unnoticed.

The History of the Winter Solstice and Stonehengestonehenge-solstic_3145362k

Stonehenge is carefully aligned on a sight-line that points to the winter solstice sunset. It is thought that the Winter Solstice was actually more important to the people who constructed Stonehenge than the Summer Solstice. The winter solstice was immensely important because the people were economically dependent on monitoring the progress of the seasons. Starvation was common during the first months of the winter, January to April (northern hemisphere) or July to October (southern hemisphere), also known as “the famine months”. In temperate climates, the midwinter festival was the last feast celebration, before deep winter began. Most cattle were slaughtered so they would not have to be fed during the winter, so it was almost the only time of year when a plentiful supply of fresh meat was available and the majority of wine and beer was finally fermented

The Winter Solstice is the most important day of the year at Stonehenge and a truly magical time to be there. For many the impulse to arrive at Stonehenge in time for the Solstice is a little like all those people drawn to the strange rock in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It’s akin to a spiritual experience for those that attend.

Please light a candle (white, gold, or silver) and spend at least 5 minutes in mindful mediation.

Make sure you take time to enjoy this sacred day in some special way.

New Moon December 11, 2015

New Moon2 is a time to embrace change and uncover truth.

It’s hard to believe that this is our last New Moon of the year, and it’s in the wonderful sign of Sagittarius. This year has just flown by.  Sagittarius influence gives our spirit a lot of color and dimension. So, maybe that gives you some idea of how this New Moon might feel!

I’ve got suggestions for how to use this New Moon to your advantage. Let’s go!

This is the Moon of Rest and Beginnings. This New Moon is especially powerful because it falls on the same day as the Winter Solstice. This is a good time to say goodbye to the old and embrace something new. It’s a time to be more creative in your life. Be open to the creativity and allow all the inspiration into your life that this special time brings.

Allow new ideas to take growth. This New Moon is about planting the seeds of what you want to see manifest in your life in the coming New Year.  Write out your intentions for this new cycle. Make a ceremony of some sort. It can be as simple as watching the sunset and sending out your intentions. Lighting a candle. Making a special meal. Embrace the new!  Do something that shows the reverence you have for the Divine Spirit.

This is a wonderful opportunity to let go of all disappointments, regrets, and dissatisfaction from the past year. These energies keep you from moving forward in your life. It’s time to transition into the new you!

The New Moon brings the energy to lead ourselves into better situations and conditions over the next lunar month.

This is a soothing time of rest and planning for new beginnings; New Year, new growth; love, the beginning of or renewing of; bringing things in; regeneration; give thanks. This is a time of new beginnings and new undertakings. It can be a starting point for kicking that bad habit, or simply beginning a project. Put ideas in motion, become engaged, and make long term relationship plans. This is a time of spontaneous and instinctual action. This is a time when efforts will grow visible. Transitions may seem to be accepted more calmly than other phases. This is a good time for hair cuts to promote growth, medical treatments or getting your money’s worth from that facial!

Set new goals and review the old ones to let go of.  Using a Burning Bowl Ceremony can be helpful to releasing the past.  This is a time of change. So do it now!

Rare Lunar Eclipse

LUNAR ECLIPSE: For the first time in many years, northern winter is beginning with a total lunar eclipse. On Dec. 21, 2010, the date of the northern winter solstice, the full Moon will pass through Earth’s shadow, turning the lunar orb a delightful shade of coppery-red. Sky watchers in North America are favored with an overhead view as the eclipse unfolds on Tuesday morning between 02:41 am and 03:53 am EST.

The lunar eclipse of Dec. 21st falls on the same date as the northern winter solstice. Is this rare? It is indeed, according to Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory, who inspected a list of eclipses going back 2000 years. “Since Year 1, I can only find one previous instance of an eclipse matching the same calendar date as the solstice, and that is Dec. 21, 1638,” says Chester. “Fortunately we won’t have to wait 372 years for the next one…that will be on Dec. 21, 2094.”
