AFRICAN WINTER SOLSTICE:
Celebrating the African Goddess Mawu for Winter Solstice
Mawu is a West African Creation Goddess.
She sees into our souls with the Moon as Her eyes. As we sink into deep reflection at the close of the calendar year, Mawu gives us safe space and draws the shades of night to allow us quiet womb time.
Under Her canopy, we can take a much-needed respite. Each day, Mawu writes the destinies of humanity and passes them to Her son, Legba, to deliver. Look and listen for Her messages.
Take the information that She provides and prepare to seed your field anew at the Winter Solstice, just as Mawu set down the first seeds of creation. Her messages come from a myriad of sources: nature, the Sky (Her home), through strangers (it just might be Legba himself), and in dreams.
The winter solstice, hiemal solstice or hibernal solstice, also known as midwinter, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere (Northern and Southern). For that hemisphere, the winter solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year, when the Sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky.
Since prehistory, the winter solstice has been seen as a significant time of year in many cultures, and has been marked by festivals and rituals. It marked the symbolic death and rebirth of the Sun.
