Normally, you’re supposed to magickally clean things out at Samhain, so you’re ready to plant in the spring. Instead, we’re having spring and summer cleaning here – really, it’s likely to be all year cleaning, which makes some sense, given the instability we’ve had the last 2 years with my son’s medical condition. Things have built up, and we need to figure out what’s working and what’s not so that we can move forward.
This year, we’ve sold off the remnants of our Pagan wholesaling business. I’ve shut down one ill-timed writing project. I’m closing up my baby sign language classes. I’ve shut down a number of websites, left a lot of groups and message boards, and spent a lot of time conserving energy.
At the same time, I’ve been planting a few new seeds, in corners of my life, to see what takes root and what doesn’t. Things that make me happy and things for my family are at the top of the priority list. We’re hoping for some great strides on the medical front over the next year, and we will see where that leaves us.
So, with that, Happy Solstice, one and all – I hope that this next turn of the wheel brings you everything you desire.
