Blessed Solstice! Here, where I live in the Northern Hemisphere, this day will be a tiny bit longer than yesterday, this night will be a tiny bit shorter than last night. For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere it will be just the opposite. I am glad it is a gradual shift, I am glad I still have more long sacred and dark nights of quiet introspection and regeneration before the lengthening days become obvious, although I can already feel the shift in my body. But, I am glad that Winter is not yet over, just as those of you in the South may be glad Summer is still with you for a while more. This dance The Earth does, turning each half of Her body toward the Sun then away, reminds me that all things have their seasons, all seasons have their gifts. So to my friends in the Southern Hemisphere, blessings to you in the return of the sacred dark as it slowly lengthens toward Winter's rest and cozy cheer. To my friends here in the North, blessings on us in the return of the blessed light as it slowly lengthens toward Summer's wild work and abundance.
