Wishing Everyone a Joyful Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice, Yule, Mid-Winter or Alban Arthan is the celebration of the rebirth of the sun after the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.  It is one of the eight solar festivals comprising the Wheel of the Year.  Nourished in the womb of the Goddess during the dark time of the year, the sun symbolises the God born anew.  Plants that remain evergreen such as fir trees, holly and mistletoe are used as decorations.  A good time to reflect on the past year and make plans for the new year.
Wishing everyone joy, peace, good health, prosperity in the new year! May all your dreams come true!

The Southern Hemisphere will be celebrating the Summer Solstice and looking forward to a fruitful harvest. Wishing you joy, peace, good health and prosperity in the new year! May all your dreams come true!

  1. Happy Solstice! Here comes the light🎇👏🏼! It’s raining here today so I don’t think the great conjunction will be visible here either~ such a bummer. At least we’ll be spinning towards brighter days now which always makes me feel relieved. I know you are good at embracing the winter months but the sun sets shortly after 4:PM right now and it’s just such a short day! May all your dreams come true for the New Year too!

  2. Noooo, that means days are getting shorter down this end of the earth …
    I quite like it when the sun sets after 9pm here in Tassie 😀
    I hope you had a good Christmas and may the new year get better for everyone!
