The Winter Solstice is here having come in just after 6 AM EST yesterday on Dec 21. This is the Birth of the Sun (not Son) when the days start to get longer and we move forward to begin new ideas, new projects, and experience the birth of the coming year. It’s cold here but as the days get longer we know the warmth of Mother Earth will return. Of course, before we do any spell work, we always take into consideration when Mercury is retrograde. You don’t need an ephemeris anymore, you can look it up quickly on any laptop of cell! We wish all of our friends a Joyous Yuletide season and send blessings for a prosperous holiday season. May you all have the Blessings of the Goddess and God and may you never hunger or thirst.
