Today’s a big day in the northern hemisphere: the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and longest night.
In Feng Shui, Yin, the feminine, is at its peak and the wheel turns towards Yang as the days start to get longer. And of course it’s also the first day of Winter.
Water — cold, dark and deep — is Winter’s element. It’s time to hunker down and reflect, to connect with loved ones and feed your Fire in a myriad of ways, inside and out.Yesterday’s huge snowstorm created a lot of perfect winter images to savor during this most snug and secluded of seasons. I loved watching this man feed the geese in our local park — stirring up a spark of Fire on a freezing cold day.
After enjoying these scenes yesterday we looked forward to getting cozy with a hot drink!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy the winter?
