Deep Magic for the Darkest Part of the Year
Ask someone to think about what the most magical season of the year is and the answer will probably be Autumn…it is after all considered the Season of the Witch! Maybe they’ll say Spring time with Beltane/Walpurgis Nacht in mind. The truth is that every season has its own magic of course, but there is one season that has stood as as exceptionally magic since time out of mind.
It is the season where we all leave offerings our for faeries and magical creatures (what did YOU think Santa and his Reindeer were?), the season when ghosts are known to walk among the living…and sometimes warm their stony hearts, the season of omens, oracles, and miracles a plenty.
Many of us don’t realize how many magical traditions are braided throughout the Winter Season – from this being the only time when it is allowed to tell Trickster Coyote tales in the Southwest ro this being the period Omen Days…those magical days that allow us to peer into the coming year…and wit so much in between. Winter is often seen as busy, overwhelming and then dark and depressing.
In this day long workshop I’ll introduce you to various Winter magic traditions and practices including magical practices for Solstice, Christmas, Omen Days, and Holy Helpers that are especially resonant during this time of the year.
