The Winter Solstice, being the darkest day of winter, and then the birth of a new year, was once a major celebration. Of course in the northern hemisphere this has been hijacked by Christmas and the now New Year, latter in January. Yet for our part of the world what does Winter Solstice in our June mean for you?
The natural event of the Winter Solstice, comes and goes only once, each year, and yet, while the masses are hypnotised and distracted by the worldly commercial events, most people have little or no idea it even exists!
Today only a handful of conscious beings are aware of the significance of this natural phenomenon. The Solstice is a time of reversal, with an effect on our physiology, with a turn around from inner reflection to an outer expression.
The Saturnalia festival has an astronomical character, referring to the completion of the sun’s yearly course, and the commencement of a new cycle, with the sun overcoming winter, and with the transition to spring when life is renewed or reborn.
