Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year and marks the beginning of longer days. This time is about letting in the light. This kit includes some items to help you shed the old and let in the new. There is no right way to engage with this box. Ritual is personal and doesn't need to follow any rules. If you are someone (like me!) who likes suggestions/directions, here are a few to get you started; Light your candle (do not burn unattended), burn your herb bundle and run yourself a bath or foot bath using the included bath salts. Place your crystal on your altar (where you can also place your candle). The Tarot card included in this box was hand picked just for you. I recommend you spend some time with it, looking at all the items and details in the image. What is it bringing up for you? What symbolism are you finding and how does it relate to this time for you? If you want to learn more about your card I recommend littleredtarot.com or biddytarot.com as great resources. I've included an intention card that you can write your solstice wishes on. This card can be sent to a friend if you want to share your good intentions, burned if you are letting something go, placed on your altar or even tucked away to look at throughout the year as a reminder. Again, this is a personal box of items just for you and there is no wrong way to engage with it. I'm so excited for you!
The Mini Solstice Magic Box Contains:
Burning Herb Bundle
This bundle can be burned for dreaming
and divination for protection and boundaries. Yarrow encourages good
boundaries and making sure we don't give too much of ourselves.
Mugwort is a dreaming herb. This is a great time to use these plants
since solstice is a great time for letting in the light and dreaming
up what we want for the year to come.
Quartz is used to amplify or disperse energy. This crystal can be used to amplify other crystal energy, your intentions, or whatever medicines you are working with. Please it on your altar, carry it with you or use it however you feel works.
