Winter Solstice - Delving into the Dark, and Welcoming the Sun
So we've made it around the Sun, one more time. The longest night of the year comes next week-- Winter Solstice is Tuesday, the 21st, with the Sun going into Capricorn at 3:38 PM, Pacific Time.
This is one of the eight turning points of the pagan year. The last was Samhain, more commonly known as Halloween. At that time, the old year dies... the earth lies almost at rest around us for six weeks. Now, at Winter Solstice, it is reborn.
