Plant Your Seeds Now! Grow with the expanding light of day as we move towards the sun! In the Southern hemisphere we just passed the Winter solstice, which means the darkest day of the year is behind us. The solstice is a tiny moment of peace & balance before movement starts in the opposite direction, the contraction of energy has ceased and we are slowly kicking into a more active expansive gear as we head back towards the sun. In the lead up to the Winter Solstice the light of day, literally daily time span that the sun shines down and showers us with light, our complete energy source is contracting. This time of contraction is.
