How could the energy and wisdom of Yule support our personal growth and evolution?
With the dying of the Light of the old Sun, part of our own Light is also ready to die.
As Above So Below.
This is a time for letting go of all that holds us back. Can we identify those parts of ourselves, our goals, and our path that need to be released with the dying Sun? Consider the habits, fears, beliefs, relationships, addictions, and worn out stories that need to die, if we are to move forward into the more empowered, authentic Life that we can feel calling us? Write them down, and burn them in your vigil candle on the Solstice evening itself, if you’re going to hold vigil. If not, just burn them! NOW, in the Dark Moon phase, is your chance to let it all go!
Alternatively, it may simply be that we need to choose where to more selectively focus our attention and energy. Saturn reminds us (yes, Saturn’s still very busy in the skies above) that we can do, be, and have anything if we’re prepared to work for it … but we can’t have it all. Not simultaneously, anyway. In order to reach the summit of our chosen path, we need to be willing to let other paths go so that we can focus our time and resources. In other words, what are you prepared to give up, in order to get where you want to go?
Finally, there may be areas of life that we thought had ‘died’. All may have seemed bleak, hopeless, and lifeless, and perhaps we’d given up on it. And yet, Yule reminds us that just when we thought all was lost, something shifts and we realise it’s not too late. In fact, we’ve still got time! All is well. We can still embrace the path or the opportunity we thought we’d lost. The newborn Sun is coming!
As we prepare to midwife the rebirth of the Sun and its new Light, what new aspect of our own Light are we ready to bring into the world? The recent Gemini New Moon has probably got our minds teeming with new ideas and new possibilities! While we wait in this Dark Moon phase, we can allow ourselves to dream into our new future. We can plant these seeds in the rich, loamy, dark soil, and await the coming of the new Light!
What are we now strong enough and brave enough to start sharing with the world around us? Where are we ready to shine?? As they say, “Where you wish to be acknowledged, allow yourself to be seen.” Shine, beautiful people!
And so it is.
