The Winter Solstice, also known as Yule, marks the moment the sun shines at its most southern point and the official time of the Winter season. It is the longest night and the shortest day of the year, immediately followed by the start of the increase in the hours of daylight until the Summer Solstice.
Some people feel they experience dark moods and it might be linked to the darkness in the sky, the limited amount of sun and light we get during the autumn and winter months. Hope is on its way: The Winter Solstice represents the rebirth of the sun and time to celebrate the coming of light.
It is time to assess the past year. Let go of what you no longer need to worry about, and think of where you would love to be, and what you would love to achieve. It is time to prepare the ground for planting the seeds which will blossom in the Spring.
Focus on bringing light and warmth into the darkness and cold of Winter. The Yule season is full of magic and hope, it is about renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings. Start to change your life for the better, set new goals, have fun with your loved ones, and find inner peace.
Warm wishes always,
