December 19,20, 21 2016-The Days of Darkness


The Winter Solstice is a time when the veil is thin much like Halloween, and its a time when I am visited by loved ones who passed over-sometimes they move things around to let me know that they are ‘around’ and other times they speak with a megaphone type message. Its always a very interesting time of year and I welcome their messages and visitations.

The three days of darkness because the Sun in the Northern Hemisphere stands still on the equator for three days and unfortunately many people cross over to the other side during this opening portal as the Sun rest in Sagittarius (the opening of the Central Milky Way portal) before moving onto Capricorn.

Also, Saturn rules the sky in the Southwest and rises before the Sun, and Saturn is the festive celebration of Saturnalia which begins December 17 through December 24.

The Winter Solstice is often the darkest day of the year or night-December 21, 2016 10:44 UTC but a time when messages are received. Generally, I light a candle with safety measures in mind for three days to help the guides and spirits on their way and in gratitude.
