‘Tis the season to be jolly.
I see this as a season for letting go of the past, and to looking forward to a new cycle.
A season for introspection, for releasing the old, and embracing the new. If this was a tarot card, it’d be the death card. 😉
A season to be spend with my loved ones, the ones that have been on my side through thick and thin, and love me unconditionally.
I have already said my goodbyes to past cycles I needed to close, I learnt from the experiences I lived, and I am looking forward to new experiences (I would prefer them to be pleasant ones, please).
I spent time with my Family, helped Mom with the preparation of our traditional foods.
I spent time with my Deities and offered them good wine.
Yes, I am a Pagan on the Druidry Path and I celebrate the Winter Solstice (Alban Arthan), the return of the light, the balance between light and dark.
But my Family is Catholic and I see no inconvenience in celebrating this Family season with my own Family.
Before I return to my Family, my Goddesses (yes, almost forgot to tell you! Besides the Great Queen, Epona also chose to be part of my life, and I am delighted to get to know her better) and Gods, I wish you peaceful times. May you always find balance in dark and light. And may this season be an enlightened one.
