year ending musings

an interesting solstice/eclipse/full moon. a meditation was set up, to start off a years' worth of dedicated workings for next year---my 50th on this plane.  a bit of mercury retrograde got the setup off to a jumpy start.  candles tipping, animals interrupting, youngest grandchild fussing with a cold, knees sore, extremely difficult to sit still (hello, ADD).  but candles were sit & lit, a friendly aura beamed out from the presence invited & addressed.  the color red was needed & welcomed.  45 minutes flew by! today i will sit, light, & finish.  given my ADD i find that multiple days are needed to truly cast free the energy i wish to spread.  the feast day of st. nicholas is 5 december, but, as i'm still in america, solstice eve feels as good, if not better, to address Him.  Dame Fortuna didn't mind.  i have started baking cookies for yuletide yesterday.  i'm not one to start holiday baking for the home until solstice time.  this is the time of year i begin to turn in to the hearth.  from all souls day until solstice the holidays turn out, now it's time for the home to prepare for the year to come.  i am so looking forward to my 50th year, making changes & dreams come fly true.  i hope that all who read this find that their yule is bright with flame & warm with joy. :)


  1. May it be a great year for you! Nice to see that you are also writing a blog. It makes sense that Mercury was retrograde in that transportation here has been a DISASTER for the past few weeks. No trains, delayed buses, grounded planes, the works.

  2. hi! & welcome. i hope transportation is settling down for you. the first new moon of the year saw me drawing up a goals list for 2011, but not doing much about it (yet :)
