The Spirit of Solstice

It seems like just yesterday I was wishing everyone a happy summer solstice, on this blog anyway. We have been neglecting our posting, but we haven’t been idle. We have two students and a few celebrants who have been visiting on the Sabbats lately. It’s been a blessing and a challenge with the time management, to be sure. Jack and I are learning a lot about creating sacred space in our home and sharing that with others.

Our fall project was to remove the TV and the computer from our main floor, very distracting technical artifacts! Instead we’ve finally found room for our dining room table, and lacking an actual fireplace in our home, we have created a candleplace instead. The candles themselves are on order from Eye of Horus, when it is complete and the candles are lit we will definitely post a picture. I am assured it will be in time for Yule! In preparation, I am learning a new song for the season, and I nearly have it completely memorized. I encourage you to do the same, for it is a lovely offering from the Wyrd Sisters:

A fire is burning
the long night draws near
all who need comfort
are welcome by here
we’ll dance ‘neath the stars
and toast the past year
for the Spirit of Solstice
is still living here

Merry Winter Solstice, Yule, Christmas, Festivus, Hanukkah, or whatever you celebrate this time of year. I will be spending time with family, friends, coven, clan and tradition!
