This weekend, on December 21st, marks the occurrence of the Winter Solstice. In the Northern hemisphere, it will be be the longest night of the year with an early sunset and late dawn the following morning. The solstice marks the first day of winter and a time to celebrate the shift in the heavens and the seasons. Mystic Mamma has some excellent solstice ritual ideas here. (We quite love the Fire Releasing Ceremony and practice this ritual on our Wild Precious Life Retreats.) The winter solstice, as she points out, is a time to connect with and stoke our internal fire! Blaze on! And know that although the solstice means the first day of winter, every day that follows will bring more and more light until the Summer Solstice in June.
Happy celebrating! xox
