Positively Revolting on 12/17/10
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.
In this time, all posibilities exist as we dive deep into the void to find our visions, and make them manifest. In this longest night, we can access our subconscious selves, our dreams, and we can face our shadow selves. In these things lay our personal power.
Your shadow self is not your enemy, the more you understand it, the more you know which parts serve you, and which parts you should cull. And as the days lengthen, and the sun returns, so too can our visions take shape. Your thoughts are seeds to cultivate in the weeks ahead. Plant them well.
To celebrate the Solstice, Ani and Lyn combine their skills to bring you mini astro-tarot readings. Call the studio line at 503-231-8187.
And a good Solstice to all.
