Meanwhile, Down South…

Yesterday I posted on the impending Northern Hemisphere Sabbath of Summer’s Waning or Dimming. But of course, this also means that what approaches in the Southern Hemisphere is Brightening, the holiday marking the point at which winter is technically over and the days have noticeably lengthened from their shortest phase at the solstice.

Brightening is a hopeful holiday, a time to make plans for achievement of the coming year’s goals. I wrote in more detail about it here.

So to Southern Atheopagans, I wish you the new hope of the strengthening Sun, audacity and aspiration in your new plans, and the tenacity to get through this last little bit of cold before the spring finally arrives. Happy Brightening!
