The shortest day of the year marks the rebirth of the Sun, it marks a new beginning.
Winter solstice 2019 at 22 December 5:19am CET.
The end of a cycle is here. On the 22nd of December the winter solstice takes place, the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year. Solstice literally translates into ‘sun standing still’ and describes the moment when the sun reaches its southernmost point from earth’s equator.
This marks a period to pause, to stand still and to turn inward. It’s a time to slow down and to reflect on this past year. Reflect, write and set intentions. Find out what you want 2020 to bring you. What do you want? Why do you want that? And what do you need to do to align yourself to make that happen? What do you choose to leave behind that is no longer serving you? What do you choose to bring with you?
It is also a month to celebrate. To celebrate the end of a cycle and the start of new beginnings. It is a time to honour and to spend with our loved ones. A period of the year to stay inside, to gather around the fireplace, to take a warm bath and drink hot ginger tea.
We collected some of our favourite Winter Solstice rituals for you, that can support you to transition into the new year.
Celebrate the longest hours of darkness and the rebirth of the sun. This auspicious day is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection. What can YOU gain from this period of darkness?
“You are what your deepest desire is.
As your desire is, so is your intention.
As your intention is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
~ The Upanishads
