Winter Solstice: It’s cooler than Festivus.

Happy Winter Solstice from Body of Light!

Did you know?…

It’s no coincidence that many cultures have some sort of celebration, often incorporating nature and mythological figures, around this time of year — everything from Santa to the Oak King (see crazy photo to the right). Meaning and celebration of the passage of fall to winter, and the shortest and darkest day of the year, traditionally varies from culture to culture, but most recognize the concept of rebirth in some way. Today is the actual solstice for us here in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s the start of winter, when the earth slows down, takes a rest and prepares for Spring. This year it also happens to coincide with a rare lunar eclipse — making the energy around us strong and ready for change.

Around sunset, consider taking a moment to stop and show gratitude for the sun that offers us light, warmth, energy and abundance throughout the year, whether you can see it or not. Consciously bring yourself into the present, leaving the previous year’s emotions, relationships and traumas behind you. Celebrate all that you have right here and now. And begin setting your intentions for the coming year.
