WINTER SOLSTICE
DECEMBER 19 - 23
THE SEED STIRS IN THE EARTH

we have arrived at the longest night, when the power of the sun is at its lowest point. from this point onward the sun will experience a rebirth. each day will see more sunlight until Summer Solstice when solar influence is at its peak. the ancient people used this time of 'longest night' to focus on the power of darkness. not the negative image of darkness, but the richness of that unknown, dark, fertile, deep part in each of us where our intuitive, creative forces abide. it is time to transform any negative energy associated with ones 'shadow' into the energy of creation and psychic ability.

SPRING EQUINOX
MARCH 19 - 23
BUDS UNFOLD TO EARLY FLOWERS

we are at the point in the yearly cycle when balance exists between light and dark. it is a time to examine our own balance. as we move toward our outer nature -  the light - we honor our inner nature - the dark.

SUMMER SOLSTICE
JUNE 19 - 23
THE TREE BENDS WITH RIPENED FRUIT

the sun now exerts its maximum power as its rays strike us head on. the time of full outward physical manifestation is here. the powers of inner contemplation are at their lowest point, and everywhere are the energies of doing, of exerting the will. this was the ancient time of celebration, of outward joy in the fullness of life, the richness of our blessings.

AUTUMN EQUINOX
SEPTEMBER 19 - 23
THE HARVEST IS STORED

this is the point where there is balance between the energies of outward, physical manisfestation and inward, psychic creativity. this is the time of inner growth. during summer there was little time for the juices of completative creativity to bubble up from deep within. now is time to prepare for this to occur most fruitfully. when we surrender to our inner nature we can begin to hear the still voice within, and we can set our outer affairs in order to be ready when it calls.
