Happy Winter Solstice!

tumblr_mfdsk8F4IZ1qej6jto1_400Instead of this being the “last day of the world”, I knew I could count on the Winter Solstice for a reason to celebrate the season! After today, the days become gradually longer as the sun grows stronger in the sky; today is a celebration of rebirth.

Freya, the Great Mother Goddess, the rule of Life and Death. Without death there is no life.

As Norse goddess Freya spins the Great Wheel (the Jul, meaning Yule), once again the sun is reborn. The Christmas wreath symbolizes the “Wheel of Fate” and reminds us of the cycle of the seasons and the continuity of life.
