A warm welcome to all!
Thanks again to all of the very brave souls who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge- Freedom in Forgiveness
Last week involved surpassing the shadows to find the light within, so this week get ready for a relaxing break. It’s time to celebrate the season and bask in the soothing light of the sun!
The theme for this week’s challenge- inspired by the upcoming solstice and suggested by the bright @Kasandra- is…
The solstice is approaching!
For those in the Northern Hemisphere, it is time for Yule and the Winter Solstice- a light in the dark season that promises the return of the sun . Friends in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate Litha and the Summer Solstice- a time to bask in the glow of the sun at its strongest
Regardless of where you are in the world, the time of the solstice marks a very blessed period to cast magick that draws on the sun!
Are you ready to shine?
Because it’s… CHALLENGE TIME!

Glowing and golden, it chases the night
The rays of the sun- blinding and bright!
A scorching desert or a shimmer on dew-

Blessed be and Happy Solstice!
