The Night of the Mothers – Solstice Eve


I am quite poorly at the moment with a very nasty virus that is doing the rounds here. It has left me coughing and totally wiped out, so much so that I have had to cancel the Solstice Gathering with friends that had been planned for tomorrow. This is very sad as its the first time we would have been able to gather for Winter Solstice for some years due to work commitments and the first time my stone circle would have been used for a group celebration but it is sensible, there will be other times.

As I am really not up to concentrating to write anything at length at the moment, or not anything that makes much sense anyway, I thought it was perhaps worth revisiting two posts from previous years that relate to today, the eve of solstice, things that you might not find unless you delve back through the archives.

In the first post I talk about discovering  Modranicht or Night of the Mothers which can be seen as the beginning of the Solstice festivities

And in the second Elen Sentier, talks about her own experience of honouring the feminine on the eve of Solstice 

Whatever and however you are celebrating at this time of the year may I wish you all Solstice Blessings and Seasons Greetings. Here’s to a healthy, happy, peaceful and abundant 2017.
