A Guide to Winter: A Season of Reflection and Rejuvenation

This is the season of introspection, tranquility, reflection, restoration, and rejuvenation.

Season Energetics: Season of Water

The winter months, with their cold and quiet atmosphere, provide us with the perfect environment to embrace rest and reflection. As the earth lies dormant, under the surface, we are given a unique opportunity to explore the depths of our thoughts and emotions. This period of solitude allows us to tap into our intuition and gain valuable insights about ourselves and the world around us.

The calming energy of winter creates the necessary space for inner reflection. It is a time to pause, slow down, and reconnect with our inner selves. In this stillness, we can let our thoughts and emotions flow freely, without the distractions of the outside world. It is during these moments of stillness, softness, and slowness that new inspirations often surface.

Enjoy the spaciousness of the season and use it as a container to safely hold dreams and aspirations. Allow yourself to dream big and set audacious goals in alignment with your values. As the days gradually become brighter and longer, let the right plans bubble up in preparation for springtime. Just as nature slowly awakens from its slumber, savor the gradual progress towards more light, attention, and action.

Take this precious winter as an opportunity to recharge, reflect, and rejuvenate. Create kinship with solitude and allow yourself to be fully present in the stillness of the season. Use this time to nurture your inner self, explore your passions, and find the buoyancy that will carry you toward brighter days.

“Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.” ―Hans Margolius

Winter Blues: Being peacefully adrift

Our Winter Market aims to redefine the concept of "winter blues." While the color blue is often associated with sadness, it also represents serenity, stability, inspiration, wisdom, honesty, and insights. This season, let's reclaim the notion of winter blues and view it as something restorative, uplifting, refreshing, and calm.

At our Winter Market, you can shop for journals and decks, potions, and bath soaks—items that help you embrace the stillness of the season and find comfort in connecting with and returning to yourself.

Shop Winter Blues for handpicked finds for this reflective and restorative season.
