The Dark half of the year
Suits me just fine.
Winter time. The Dream Time.
Worms and calligraphy.
A quiet turning under,
A rich velvet basket,
Stars and fog tucked around
The Dark, my love, is a
Pocket for Change-lings.

Merry Solstice Greetings Diva !
We have become used to taking heed of GrandMother Moon's changing faces for our own healing and happiness. When She iz New we know to plant our dearest intentions in her dark womb for ripening. Her First Quarter light tells us look for and begin tending above ground, those heart-seeds we've planted. The celebration of light when She's Full calls us dance & sing in gratitude for the clear signs of nearing harvest. And Her Last Quarter re*minds us to take time while enjoying the fruition of our Desires, to prepare the seeds for new dreams.
GrandMother Moon doesn't feed us with Her cipher of receptivity and new birth all by Herself. Great Feminine Power must always be adoringly supported. This day we know as Winter Solstice celebrates the renewal of Divine Masculine adoration and support represented by GrandFather Sun becoming "New" again. Spend the next three days offering Him your biggest Desires...the ones you don't mind cooking slowly. Dance these into your harvest celebrations of the Last Quarter light of Extending The Circle Moon. Make fires and sing your visions for a well supported and richly loved new year!
What new fruits have you blessed with during this Moon? Which of your big vision seeds will you surrender to GrandFather Sun for ripening throughout the new solar year?
