Happy Sun of the South also called December Solstice

22 Dec

When we decide to bring harmony into our lives, it is imperative that we acknowledge the importance of learning from nature. The idea of “As above, so below” is what we should keep in mind. Each nation has their own story of the sky. However the physical movements in Astronomy is what guides these fables and predictions. Today the planet has tilted away from the sun in the northern hemisphere, with a corresponding tilt towards the sun in the southern hemisphere. As the sun is now in favour of the south, they are having summer, as we are tilted away from the sun in the northern hemisphere, we are experiencing winter.

A Joyful Solstice Reflection

21 Dec

THE LONGEST NIGHT

The December solstice in the northern hemisphere alludes to Spiritual transformation and creativity both of which are internal processes, both of which take place in the darkness, in the depths of our being, called by many names and variously described at different levels as the soul, the spirit, the direct connection to the source of all things, our connectedness to nature, and the Collective unconscious as coined by Carl Jung.

The name itself is derived from the Latin ‘Sol’ meaning the sun and ‘sistere’ meaning to stand. The combined variations are ‘solstitium’ or solstice. The sun standing still is alluding to the fact that during the solstice transits, the sun will either reach its highest point in the sky and we experience the longest day or reach the lowest point in the sky and we experience the longest night. On both occasions during the days following the actual event of the tilt towards or away from the sun, the sun will appear to be standing still before it changes direction and takes us towards spring or autumn.

Spiritually the sun is said to die and is reborn again around 25th December. Numerous winter festivals are based on the movements of the celestial bodies in the heavens which are used to provide guidance on how humanity should live. This was the case in ancient Egypt which although contested, predates Christianity by thousands of years. The iconography, deities, and symbolism from around the world and in the major world religions, can be found in ancient Egypt: The birthplace of marking time and the first written calendar.

DR CHARLES S. FINCH III

Eminent scholar, author and African Indigenous Priest, Dr Charles S. Finch III reminds us to acknowledge the solstice transit and immerse ourselves in the energy of the full moon, which falls on the day after today’s auspicious event.

THE SUN AND THE MOON

Universally we have come to view this time of year as a time to celebrate life with family and friends. December is also a time to take stock and make plans for the coming year. Be reminded that the Sun and the Moon help us to mark time. For those who need help with time management and goal setting, preview a free taster online training here:https://wayt1.teachable.com/

Happy Sun of The Middle September 2018

23 Sep
It’s about that time again, the second sun of the middle for the year. As we know, this month marks a turning point towards winter (in the northern hemisphere) or summer (in the southern hemisphere). All the seasonal changes remind us to reflect on what has gone before, what we are doing now and what we can look forward to in the future. When we review and consolidate our knowledge and experiences, we are better able to make sense of our emotional connection to the past, the present and the future.
