Solstice Eclipse: 21-12-2010

Tonight is too special not to share… A total eclipse on Yule? It won’t happen again for another four centuries. And the night couldn’t be more beautiful. It’s crisp and cold and there’s the lightest whisper of snow falling. It truly is a gift. I needed to be refreshed and refilled, and magick is thick in the air tonight. It very surely is a blessed Yule.




Photos from the total eclipse here just couldn’t be captured. Too much haze in the air, and the moon was just far too dim. Amazing to have been there for it though. It’s an experience I hold with a spirit of gratitude. Looking forward to greeting the sun. Blessed Yule!
