Winter Solstice is upon us once again.During this longest night of the year, we get ample time to sit in the darkness of our shadow. The Crone archetype LOVES to bring us here, because in her many years she has developed the ability to see in the dark. She can see how the places that scare us, the places that we reject and run away from, are the very ones that offer us the most power and stability, once we honor them properly. We sit in this long, dark night with Crone beside us, letting her show us the way to our own wise, resilient, powerful selves. As the sun rises, we are reminded that the dark is not permanent, and it is now time for the sun to come closer to our true selves, one sunrise at a time.
