Raven Solstice Shrine
The Gothic Arch challenge for the next couple of weeks is to create a shrine. I've done just that in honor of raven and Winter Solstice and all things glittery and full of light. I once lived in the Arctic where there is more darkness than light this time of year and the sun doesn't crest the horizon. I still live in the north, though my little corner of Alaska isn't that far north. However, I walk to school in the dark, return home in the dark, and it really isn't until the weekend that I can truly soak up daylight. So yes, Solstice is celebrated in my home and so are ravens. :) If you can't read the text on the inside of my shrine, it reads, "Child of my dream, like shooting stars, light of my life." And on the other side, "Stars in the magic skies." I've included also the nub of a white chakra candle which is that of unfolding energies. And yes, this is all bundled up in a little Altoids tin. Enjoy the season!
