Natural world » WINTER SOLSTICE 2O1O


This year there was a full moon at the solstice on December 21st.   In the previous months a lot of things had happened including a burglary and a bad attack of dysentery which made me feel very low and which I struggled to overcome.  As a result of this I looked for ways to take better care of myself and this included doing early morning yoga as well as trying to shift my attitudes about control and involvement.

Slowly I started to improve and by this point was beginning to feel better although I was shocked at how much the illness had taken out of me.

In the evening of the solstice I went to sit under the full moon in the stone circle and felt the year slowly turning as the end of one cycle merged with the start of another.
