Ooh, a proper five-weeks-till-the-Winter-Solstice reading!
The clocks have changed, the hours of darkness are already much longer and many of us may be feeling it now – the urge to cosy in, hibernate and rest. No wonder Endurance is at the centre here, keeping the fire going to retain heat and warmth. In the absence of the light, we need the reminder from the Sun of Life to keep it within our hearts: to nurture ourselves carefully over the coming winter, mentally and physically, until it returns. We need now to attend to those things we’ll require (the literal and metaphorical firewood, if you like) to get us past the solstice and emerging into the new year alert and ready like the Lynx.
So, if you don’t already know what you need to do and to provide for yourself over the coming weeks – spend some time thinking on it this week. Prepare to take gentle care of yourself during the long nights ahead.
Have a good week and stay safe x
