Today we experience the Sun’s move into Earthly Capricorn and the Winter Solstice. In the Northern hemisphere, this day marks the longest night of the year. Following Winter Solstice, the sun is REBORN- growing again into the light of Spring and Summer.
During this time we are asked to let go of all those things that we no longer need to carry with us. This can mean thought patterns, relationships, emotions… for we too, are in a sense, reborn as well. This year has been one of transition- with one foot in the old, one foot in the new. This year’s Winter Solstice marks a definitive turning point, asking us to look into the future with new vision. We have all the wisdom and tools we need to manifest our truest purpose as we move into the Year of the Journey.
Consider rituals on this year’s winter solstice to cement the changes you have experienced of late. Write down on a piece of paper all the things you are leaving behind you; all those things that no longer serve your highest and best good. Write with with love in your heart and then throw them into a fire with a prayer of thanks and gratitude- for the lessons learned in letting go of these things have helped you advance to your present.
After you are done releasing, write again those things which you wish to see manifest in the coming year. Meditate on these desires with an open heart and with gratitude. Give thanks for these blessings which have not coming into into your life yet, and throw them into the fire with a prayer to your higher power.
This is a time for change. Energy portals have been open since 12/12; helping us release, raising our vibrations, sending messages of attunement for the coming year. Release into your highest self, let go of what no longer serves you and find peace knowing that your road is paved with universal intent.
