Happy Yuletide ~ Winter Solstice and Capricorn New Moon!
New Moon in Capricorn/Winter Solstice December 21st: (4:03pm PST)
Happy Yuletide! The Winter Solstice, or Yule, is a time of ritual and celebration, a time to honor the passing of seasons, from the blustery, changing winds of autumn into the sleepy dreams of winter.
The Winter Solstice is the shortest day and the longest night. A time where the sun (the symbolic male) is at it’s weakest, and gives its power to the mysteries of the moon (divine feminine). Then, the Sun’s light begins to grow again, reaching its full strength at the Summer Solstice. A process symbolizing the spiritual self as it goes from inner darkness and reflection into light and new beginnings.
This is a time of symbolic death and rebirth, endings, completion and transformation. The tradition-loving New Moon in Capricorn, adds a sense of reverence and gravitas to this event, reminding us of our limited time on the planet, that life itself is ephemeral. This is a time to celebrate each and every moment. To give a big hug to those nearest and dearest. To let go of the past and prepare for the future and new beginnings. 2015 is just around the corner!
Wishing you much light and joy, and that St. Nick put’s some goodies in your stocking!
