Winter Solstice…… Spirits in the Heavens


The Winter Solstice has arrived.  Another year of changing seasons comes to an end. From today the days will be come longer and nights shorter….all be it gradual.  This year the Solstice is on the 22nd as part of its 4 year cycle.

But for many, over many millennia, the solstice has, and still does, hold both a magical and spiritual significance indeed a reverence for the ” Spirits in the Heavens “

Having experienced the Northern Lights earlier this year I tend to feel that I cannot just dismiss them as solar dust…they feel much more like moving spirits…well they certainly made an emotional impression on me

22nd December
