a full moon in lunar eclipse

Welcome to the shortest day of the year…we’ve gone down deep now seeing the darkest place but also the spark of new light. The Winter Solstice is a magical day / night and I am celebrating it. I am not sure if everyone knows that along with it being the Solstice, there was a full moon and a lunar eclipse early this morning. (This confluence has not happened on the Winter Solstice since 1638!) This is one powerful day and night; I love it. Although I missed getting up to see the eclipse, with its orange-crimson hue but I am still sending my blessings out. Today, even as I’ll be at the studio working, I will be wearing little dabs of Twelfth Night, which I always associate with the darkness of the Winter Solstice even though its name actually refers to the Christian celebration of Epiphany. Twelfth Night is one of my first Holiday scents, launched in 2001, and is still one of my favorites. It’s a scent that I turn to every year about this time. The juniper, oakmoss, patchouli and incense have a lot of power and they speak to me of the solemnity I feel in the deepest dark of the forest. This is the Solstice.

I am wishing everyone new light, inspiration and upward movement… and all the joys of the Season.
