Solstice Wisdom

Ken Kalb, author of Lightshift 2000 and an insightful astrologer, reminds us that tomorrow, as the sun stands still on the shortest day and longest night of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere), it's a potent moment to pause in our frenzied activity and stand in the stillness of our souls. In Winter Solstice - The Pause That Refreshes he writes,

"Winter Solstice is a time to practice the lesson of Sagitarius; to pull the bow string back to its maximum point – sighting the bullseye before releasing your flaming arrow. It is the point between inhale and exhale. This breathless moment of stillpoint on the cusp between dark and light is an opportunity to distill the essence of any dissonant energies and components we wish to release, and embrace those aspects, refreshed and renewed for the new cycle. This is a golden opportunity for us to become aware and explore the deep messages lingering amidst the darkness, awakening with new direction, intention and foresight. The greatest gift we can give and receive is to simply breathe deeply and rhythmically the essence of our inner light on this holyday. It's the pause that refreshes."
