The Birth of The Sun

Today is the eve of the Winter Solstice.  Tonight is especially auspicious because as of the Witching Hour, the Moon will be full, a total lunar eclipse will be in progress, and Winter will come in it's full being in the Northern hemisphere of our blessed Earth.

I'm giddy with excitement.  I can feel the surge and anticipation as the Great Mother is in labor, preparing to give life and rebirth to the Sun.  And for the third year in a row I will be joining with others to drum up the Sun at beautiful, magickal, majestic, Red Rocks Park.

I can feel the night and darkness coming, the womb of creation preparing itself for its glorious moment of birth.  I am grateful for my intune-ness with the cycles of the Earth and the Mysteries of the Universe.  I am grateful I have found my path as a Pagan and Witch, and that I have such a wonderful community with which to celebrate these special days.

It nice to know we start the season.  First comes the Solstice then Christmas.  I have the giddyness of a little kid, and the understanding of a Pagan.  Finally things make sense to me that I had questioned for so long.  Why the tree, why evergreen, why lights?  I have the blessing to have walked different religious paths as a Christian, and then a Muslim, before finally arriving here.  Today I am grateful for the path of Seeker, which I walked for so long.  Now I am at peace, joyful and serene.

Blessed Be.
