Rockwell Kent Moonlight, Winter c. 1940

We’ve made it to the Winter Solstice! Here we are in the wheel of the year and the upward spin begins after today.

To celebrate, you could listen to this 1978 album (which includes a reading of Susan Cooper’s “The Shortest Day”). You could do some of the rituals suggested here. As that post says:

The Winter Solstice is a portal. It is a yes/and. It is saying goodbye to the year. We process the hard, hard lessons we learned. We welcome in light, spirits, and all forms of kinship so that we may stay safe, in service, and attuned to gratitude. After Solstice, we welcome in the New Year.

What do you want to come forth out of the unknown?
