December 21 Solstice Birthday Horoscope

People Born On December 21: Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius

DECEMBER 21 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a courageous sport. The Sagittarius born today is curious about most things but particularly those things that are not conventional. You have an active imagination, and you’re extremely resourceful. On the other hand, you can be slow to make a move. You will think twice before taking the initiative.

Some decisions should receive more consideration than others, and you are a patient person. It serves us best when we don’t rush into things and read the fine print. You’re realistic when it comes to important contract matters and of the heart.

 

As the December 21st zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you are a cheerful individual. Some people think you were born under a lucky star. If you could bestow all of your friends one wish, you would wish them peace at heart and of mind. That’s where you get your joy – in helping others. You are constantly thinking of your friends and ways to enhance relationships. The December 21 birthday personality not only tells their friends and family that they care, but they show them as well.

If today is your birthday, you can be pig-headed when you want to be! Yes indeed, unmovable is an understatement. Moreover, you cannot follow a rule book if you wrote it yourself. You are defiantly a hard-working person but occasionally you get carried away. These December 21st zodiac birthday people tend to be obsessive. This could involve your work as well as your personal life.

As far as your finances go, you seem to be happy with the balance at the end of the month. Characteristically, you connect with your projects to make them your own and the outcomes have been successful. Usually, this Sagittarius birthday person likes being useful. He or she will generally exceed the expectations of others.

Money seems to come effortlessly to you, but we know that’s not necessarily true. You have a knack for juggling investments and you feel the sensible thing to do is to save it. It’s better to spend a set amount wisely and in moderation than to be soon parted from it.

The December 21 horoscope predicts that underneath all of that coolness is a big heart. Your friends say that you are extremely liberal and passionate. As their friend, you have been trustworthy and unswerving. Once you make a friend, it becomes a lasting relationship. You probably haven’t had too many romantic relationships because of this.

The December 21 birthday love compatibility report shows that the highlight of a partnership is companionship for you. Nothing gives you more pleasure than to enjoy a concert in the park with your lover, your best friend. For this relationship, you will make the needed compromise to make the other person happy. Additionally, you need someone with an active imagination to keep things popping in the bedroom.

Your friends who you grew up with have a tremendous impact on who you are today. It could be that your childhood was unforgettably good or bad. Its lasting impressions could be holding you back or altering your life in some way. The December 21st astrology predicts that your emotional health could affect your physical being. Negative forces have a way of getting into the body and posing as an illness.

Getting you on the treadmill can take an act of Congress. But once you start to reap the benefits from exercising, you will go to the gym willingly then. All you needed was a little motivation. But be careful, you don’t want to overdo it. Too much of anything is not good for you including exercise. The future of person who born on 21 December will be promising and rewarding.

The December 21 zodiac shows that you are patient and kind individuals. You have a way of making success look easy, but you work hard to achieve the status you have. Sagittarians born today love the sound of live music and want to share the good times with someone special.

As a rule, you break or at least bend them backward. Placing restrictions on a December 21 birthday personality is a risky business. You should look back at your childhood to find any clues that will give answers to why you have problems with authority or rules.

A Yule Drink and Litha Cake Combined Them for Brunch Solstice Feast – Flashback to 2012

I know I have been doing separate posts for Yule and Litha things but when I came across these two recipes, in Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook 2012, one for each season of the year the two hemispheres are going into, they sounded yummy to me to have together. I apologize in advance for not calculating from American measurements to other parts of Mother Earth. I just found this website https://www.europeancuisines.com/ while it says European Cuisines it covers other countries as well.

(SIDE NOTE if you do not have a Sun shaped disc to pour the batter in use cookie cutters for whatever shapes remind you of the Sun or use a knife to cut out a shape. Even a young maybe 3 or older this totally up to the child’s caregivers can cut out a design. Than either eat the scraps from the cut outs or put them outside for the wildlife in your area to celebrate the Solstice with your family. This is a good day to have breakfast for dinner/supper/tea or use as treated after your families Solstice ritual)

“Sun God Supreme

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 Tablespoons of melted butter or oil

1 egg

3/4 cup yogurt

Garnish with 3 cups cubed fruit, all colors

Sift dry ingredients together. Then separately whisk wet ingredients together. Combined wet and dry ingredients, mixing for no more then 20 strokes, one for each day in June (or December) until the Solstice. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes     while you prepare the fruit, set the table, and heat the frying pan lightly coated with oil or butter on a medium heat. (SIDE NOTE AGAIN Depending on the ages of the people attending your celebration feast designated cutting the fruit, setting and clearing the table, and doing dishes along with wiping the table and kitchen surfaces. If you allow a child of 3 to cut up their pancake with a plastic knife this can also be used to slice bananas or other soft fruit. This is a family celebration so let the family help with the work and as your homes Priestess you can relax and enjoy the feast and time together with a lot less stress) 

Pour batter into sun-shaped discs (or pour batter from a measuring cup with a lip to get lovely round pancakes.) cook until bubbles that have formed in the batter burst and make little dry craters. Flip one and briefly cook the other side. Serve on brighly colored plates surrounded by fruit of all colors, which represent the abundant growth and glory of the Earth Goddess. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup and enjoy.

Pancakes combine the traditional foods of Litha — butter, milk, cakes, and honey — represent the Sun God at the height of his reign.

Magical Mulled Cider

(SIDE NOTE This cider contains no alcohol so the whole family can enjoy it. If you want to spike it for the adults I have used dark rum measured to the adult who is drinking it taste. It is also good cooled to room temperature but I did not like the taste will chilled in the refrigerator)

1 quart (or 1 liter) apple cider

6 orange, sliced to look like the sun

12 whole cloves

1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

6 cinnamon sticks

Honey to taste

Toast the return of the Sun God, and the holy rebirth, with this warming drink when you gather with friends and family on the longest night of the year, Best made over an open fire, but easily concocted on a stove indoors will warm the hearth, heart, and home. Sip this and know anything is possible.

In a large pot combine apple cider which represents the Sun God, cloves, nutmeg, and ground cinnamon. Simmer for at least half an hour to make your house smell wonderfully festive, or longer for a stronger mulled taste. This simmering symbolically brings the God and Goddess together. and adds a little “spice” to the mix. Pour into a mug, carefully an orange slice into each cup. Add cinnamon stick and serve. Makes 6 servings.

S. H. Count Down to Litha – Flashback to 2002

Litha

Litha or the Summer Solstice sabbat celebrates the Sun at the peak of its power. The Sun and solstice are about male energy; and because of fixed water power dominates on December 21, Mars triumphant will lend its energy to “increasing” projects and any magic begun at this time, such as money or prosperity spells. The Sun is waxing, the Moon is waxing, Mars is potent, and the day belongs to a smiling Venus, This is a wonderful holiday for lovers and their fertility.

Begin your ritual at dawn. Use Sunflowers to represent the Sun King but for Aphrodite decorate your altar with red roses, rose water, strawberries, and other aphrodisiacs. Burn dry clippings from your rose bushes for the cauldron fire. Spread rose butter on toast for cakes and ale, and sprinkle with fresh rose petals or rose scented sugar. To make rose butter, take a stick of butter and completely surround it in a small container with a cup of organic, fresh rose petals (SIDE NOTE – DO NOT EAT ROSES unless you use roses from your own garden or someone’s garden you know that does not use any kind of pesticides. DO NOT purchase from any kind of store because chance are they have gotten pesticides in them as they grew. ingesting any kind of pesticides is taking poison into your body and may cause a mild to server stomach problems or damage to other organs in your body.). Let the flowers marry overnight; discard petals and repeat.

N. H. Count Down to Yule – Flashback 2002

YULE

(SIDE NOTE – the position of the Moon, Sun, Mars, and Venus are not where they might be in 2019 as this was written in 2002.)

Yule brings the longest night of the year and the rebirth of the Sun King. The energies of this Sabbat are very strong and very fertile in water and earth on December 21. Mars and Venus are united in Scorpio, and the Moon waxes full in her own sign, but then moves void-of-course. Celebrate the night before on Venus’s day and enjoy all the pleasures of the flesh. Use a table-top balsam as your altar, and festoon it with all glittery symbols of the elements and Lord and Lady. Anoint bayberry candles and burn them for propensity and growth in the coming year. Make a sumptuous fest of comforting and magical foods. Smudge your altar with dried arbor vitae to waft your desires to the Goddess. Indulge your senses with the sights and smells of the season. Carve Sun symbols on last year’s Yule log and burn it with chanting (bring back the light!).

Invite friends and family to the feasting to reveal the universality of your craft and the playful side of your spirituality. Reclaim the ancient pagan customs of the season.

Today I pick a song whose melody is from my first winter school program where the teacher for some odd reason gave me a short solo. I hope this song or the melody will bring you fond memories from past winters or give you a new memory to think back on,

S. H. A Yule Story for Children ~ The Tiniest Fairy ~ Plus a Coloring Page of the Tiniest Fairy

r CTT4 Coloring Babay Fairy.jpg

Alicia was a small and tiny earthen spirit with sparkling blue eyes and a pinched up nose; even in the fairy world, where all things are small, she was the smallest of them all.

Her home was deep inside the strong and twisting roots of a big Oak. It was safe and none of the winter cold snows could find their way in.

She loved playing around her cozy and warm home with her mom and dad. They would play hide and seek and she could easily hide in the corners or under the furniture. They would read books by the firelight and sing songs that only the fairies knew.

Alicia was frightened of the other earthen creatures, as well as of what might be outside her cozy home under the big Oak. She had never been out before and saw no reason to go into the “outside.”

When company came over Alicia would not come out of her tiny seedpod bed. When the Bunny family who lived next door came to visit, she was frightened that being so small, one of the many bunny babies might accidentally hop on her. She would only peek over the beds edge with her tiny pinched nose when the Gloends, a family of glowworms came to visit, because she wanted to see where the warm yellow glow was coming from.

At dinner one evening, Alicia’s mom and dad told her that soon winter’s hold would be ending. That frightened Alicia since she only knew the winter and could not imagine what might happen if it was to end.

They explained to her that in the entire magickal world, it was her magick that would call in the changing of seasons and the turning of the great wheel. On the eve of the next night Alicia, her mom and her dad would go on a journey into the forest. Here, there would be a great gathering and all the mystical creatures of Earth would see her gift of magick.

But Alicia shivered with fear — what was this wheel and how can she stop this magick and changing? She liked things just as they were and didn’t want anything to change at all. She didn’t want to go to a gathering where so many would be. She didn’t know what this gift was that she was to give. What if she got lost and no one could find her? Or maybe the others would see her. Maybe they would not like her or make fun of her or laugh at her being so small.

Her greatest fear was that maybe she had no magick. She had not seen it. She couldn’t fly like her mom and dad; she kept falling on her elbows. She couldn’t make things like flowers or snowflakes like her mom and dad; all she ended up with some ice that melted. She couldn’t even make light with her wand. How would her parents feel when they found out, what would she do?

Even as frightened as Alicia was of going into the “outside, ” she was more frightened of what others might think of her. She didn’t want to disappoint her mom and dad, so she decided it would be best if she hid. She would go into the “outside;” no one would look for her there. She would not go very far. Just far enough away where she could hide until the gathering was over, and then the change would not happen.

Alicia’s mom was roasting acorns for the great gathering’s feast and her dad was busy polishing up his ice wand. Alicia knew no one would see her leave, or think she would go into the “outside” alone, since she never had before.

With her wand in a small bag tied to her waist, Alicia carefully opened the door of her house and stepped into the “outside.” She closed the door quickly and quietly so her mom and dad would not hear it creak. Then, she turned to see what was here in this “outdoors.” It was white everywhere. She walked along for a little while when all of a sudden “crunch” she sunk into the snow up to her wing tips. It took a bit of work but she wriggled her way up and out of the snow. Now she was really cold and she could see it was getting darker. The bright bluish color of the sky was now turning a purple hue with streaks of red and yellow.

She wasn’t sure, but if night was coming she had to hide quickly. If she could fly just to the edge of the forest she would find a place to stay until the gathering was over and then she could go home again. Then it would be safe because nothing would change. That is what she wanted.

Alicia was frighten and getting colder, but she had made up her mind. She had to do this, or everything she knew was going to change forever. She shook herself off and looked toward the forest edge. With all her will and might she jumped up and began flying forward. Then back a little, then up, then down, then around in some circles and then slower and then faster and then it happened. Bang! She flew right into a tree branch hanging low weighted heavy by the snow.

Alicia did not know what exactly had happened as she rubbed her head, but when she rose up again out of the snow it had gotten very dark. She could see tiny lights twinkling above her now. She looked around trying to figure out what direction to go. By now the gathering must be over and she could go home. Everything would stay the same. But which way was home?

Alicia couldn’t see where to go, so she didn’t want to try to fly. What if she hit another tree, it was dark now and she couldn’t make anything out, plus her head still hurt from before. She had to be very careful deciding what way to go now.

All of a sudden, she heard someone calling her. “Alicia, Alicia.” She felt her body begin to shake so hard that the tiny ice cycles that had formed on the tips of her wings, tinkled like little bells. As she turned around to look behind her, she saw a woman lying on a big pile of fur blankets. She was not a fairy, but she was beautiful, dressed in a green, red and white gown. Hundreds of earthen creatures stood all around her, many Alicia had never seen before, but none were scared or frightened at all. Although Alicia didn’t understand it, she wasn’t frightened either.

There seemed to peace about this woman, it was something calming. “Alicia, I have been waiting for you. I need your help.” the Lady said.
“Waiting for me?” Alicia asked.
“Yes, Alicia, ” she said. “Its dark now and we need your light to light the way, so that we can see what lies before us.”
“My light?” Alicia asked, remembering she had not been able to make her wand light before.
“It’s your magick Alicia, your magick that will call the light from within me.” the Lady said.
Alicia slowly began to walk toward the woman. That’s when she saw that this quiet lady was going to have a baby, and she was going to have it any moment.

All the fears and worries Alicia carried with her were beginning to melt away, just like the ice on her wing tips. As she looked into the meadow green eyes of this lady she wanted more than anything else in her small life to make a light for her.

Alicia, still trembling, took her wand from its little bag, and raised it up. With every magickal hope she had ever had, she put her energy into lighting her wand.

The lady smiled gently at her and in that instance there was a great flash of light, which came from the tip of that tiny wand. It was a brilliant luminous light, which filled every corner of the night.

As Alicia held her wand high she looked over to see that now the lady was holding in her arms a baby; a wonderful little baby boy. Suddenly, she understood it all, everything her mom and dad had been telling her.

This was the magick; this was her special gift. Alicia, the tiniest of all fairies, she was the one who carried the spark, the spark which released the light of the world and the turning of the wheel of life.

In her tiny being she had carried that magick, the magick to unlock the power of love and understanding for the world to share. Standing in that brilliant light, Alicia understood who the Lady was and the importance of this baby. She was a part of the rebirth of the Light. This baby was the Light again reborn of the Goddess. The beautiful Lady was the Goddess of life, and Alicia was that spark of magick which survives all time and through which we find boundless possibilities.

Soon the edge of the forest was filled with earthen creatures and spirits from all over the mystical world. Alicia’s mom and dad watched their fairy child as she beamed with joy. The Lady holding her baby boy blessed all those who shared in this time of magick as the feast was served and great happiness was shared by all.

Alicia didn’t even notice that she was floating on the air. She was no longer weighted down by all her silly worries or fears. She knew that even though she was tiny she had the power to light the world. Now she understood, magick is all around you if you only believe, and trust in yourself.

So each year as you light a candle to call the light, remember the tiniest fairy, for it only takes one tiny spark to give light unto the whole world.

Blessed be our Lady the Mother of Light.

The 14th Day Before Yule – Halcyon Days begin


Yule Comments & Graphics

The 14th Day Before Yule – Halcyon Days begin

 

Halcyon Days begin – The Halcyon Days are the seven days before and the seven days after (or some say the seven days surrounding) the winter solstice, when the weather is supposed to be calm and storms never occur. The name comes from Greek myth, reported by both Ovid and Hyginus.

Alcyone was the daughter of Aeolus, and married Ceyx, son of Eosphorus, the Morning Star. They were very happy together but made the mistake of blasphemously calling each other Zeus and Hera. Not surprisingly, this made Zeus very angry and he threw a thunderbolt at Ceyx’s ship, as he was sailing to consult an oracle.  Ceyx appeared to Alcyone as a ghost, and in grief, she threw herself into the sea.  Out of compassion, the gods changed them into halcyon birds (kingfishers). During the Halcyon Days, Alcyone the kingfisher lays her eggs, and her father, the god of winds, ensures that they are safe. The Mediterranean is typically calm around the time of the winter solstice. The dried body of a kingfisher was used as a talisman against lightning.

Ember Days (moveable) -The Wednesday, Friday and Saturday after December 13th are Ember Days, when Catholics say special prayers for the clergy.

Rural Dionysion – The ancient Greeks celebrated this holiday around the time of the full moon in the month of Poseidon. Plutarch complained that the rustic festival he remembered from his youth, featuring a jar of wine, a vine, a goat, a basket of raisins and a depiction of a phallus had been replaced with an elaborate procession featuring gold vessels, decorated horses and people wearing costumes and masks. This was a time for revelry including bawdy songs and raucous game.
