Not only was December 21st the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, but it was also a celestial phenomena in that we had a Super Moon.
Many of the ancient civilizations placed great stock in the workings of the cosmos. Egyptian pyramids, Mayan temples and, of course, Stonehenge, are all mystical sites in which elements are only touched by the sun on the solstices.
Whether or not you embrace the wisdom of the ancient civilizations or the ceremony of shamanism, the Winter Solstice is a momentous night. The longest night of the year, the darkest night of the soul. A year draws to a end, bringing closure to your experiences in the past year and an opportunity to reflect on your objectives and start on a new path.
New Year’s Day, how could it not represent the chance for a fresh start? You need a goal and a plan if you want the coming year to be different than the one you’ve just lived. If you loved the last year, embrace it with everything you’ve got.
Whether your 2019 is to be sunshine days or a journey to another place, I wish you health, happiness and achievement of your goals. Let’s raise a toast to love and connection, real communication and lots of laughs. Happy New Year.
