Twelfth Night Cake

Twelfth Night marks the end of the Christmas season, historically it was an important part of the Christmas celebrations. For a more detailed look at this feast, its customs & traditions, see our post from last year.  https://sangrougeterreblanc.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/farewell-christmastide/ 

Casting our minds back to Advent when the Christmas season began, through our meditative work, we brought into our hearts & hearths the gifts/themes of Hope, Love, Joy & Peace. A thank you to those who accompanied us in our Advent work as we journeyed towards our individual Christmas hearths. We hope the work proved meaningful in your celebrations & we would like to share with you a photo of our Advent altar.

Midwinter Altar
For us the season was a time of reflection and rest, it was also a time for looking towards the New Year & what it may bring. The Epiphany gifts to the infant Jesus of Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh, signified his Kingship, Priesthood & Sacrifice. Take a moment to ponder on the gifts you received during your Midwinter repose.

Emerging from our Winter reflections came the theme of New Year resolutions, initiating in us thoughts about affirmation & resolution. Leading us to consider their parallels and relationship to magical acts, and indeed how we transform a seed thought into an outward manifestation in our lives.

Our next post will endeavour to explore this subject more fully.

Until then Blessed Be…… SRTB
