How curious it is that true Brilliance can only be seen glimmering in the Darkness, and true Stillness found amidst Chaos. The dualities of Life never cease to amaze me.

This soon-to-be Solstice Sun has been simmering underneath my skin. Reminding me, that like the Moon, cycles wax and wane. After the dip into the Darkness, there is always the elevation into the Light.
Although on different timelines, frequencies and planes, we all have our own cycles. To be able to listen deeply and tune into them, is to truly know oneself.
After what has felt like forever in the Dark, my own cycle is moving me into the Light. I’ve finally made available once again some of my past mini zines as well as my newest illustrated mini zine “Scattered Teeth Like Breadcrumbs”. You can find them in my Perilsoftheliving Etsy shop.
Many Solstice Blessings!
May the Light shine brightly in your Heart,
through all your cycles and seasons.
After every Dark Season, there is always the return of the Light…
I’m sharing my New Moon – New Year Tarot reading over on my dear friend Kate Bartolotta’s website. She created an incredible offering to help open ourselves up to this time of possibility. I hope that in sharing this New Moon – New Year reading, that you can find some inspiration for the letting go of the no longer to be carried and the holding on of what really grips your heart.
May the sweet promise of renewal bring you healing, comfort and your heart’s desire.
Gather your candles,
and bring your own Light to the Darkness.
Sit with your Holy Ghosts,
the shadows of your heartbreak and disappointment.
Past elements that linger,
to remind you of the work you still must do.
Greet them like the old friends they are.
Thank them for their part in your own transformation.
Then release them into the Flames.

In nature’s beauty I walk and find my way.

Jai Ganesha! Many blessings and more blessings!

“Silence and Winter has led me to that otherness.
So let this Winter of listening be enough,
For the new life I must call my own.”
~ David Whyte
Surrender to your Silence
Surrender to the Silence of this sleeping land
Surrender to the Silence of this season
This is the time for Listening.
The Winter Solstice is a time to celebrate the growth done in Darkness and the slow magic of the Light in it’s own time. Once again the wheel turns towards the waxing journey of the Light, but this is not done quickly. Slowly we listen, slowly we awaken. The dance of light and shadows continues on. But here on this day, we are assured that the Light will always return.
