The main message of the winter solstice is exploring the darkness and turning it into light. I have been to hell and back in the last week. I have been sick with RSV the past week and in isolation. I am still tired and coughing. However, the sun finally came out and I am going out to visit my sister and rose in Tracy. I am going to watch Srason 3 of Emily in Paris.
Ideas to celebrate winter solstice:
Put your crystals out in the sun to absorb the energy of this sacred day.
Empower Yule and Christmas cards with energy
Empower the gifts you give this season with love and happiness.
Build a Yule altar.
Recognize Yule is a time of closure, especially in relation to sun-driven activities in your life–groups and organizations, corporation. Gracefully let go of those things that are no longer needed. Add meditation and prayer tuned to the low ebb of solar energy, to include in your daily activities.
