PINNACLE PEAK SOLSTICE HIKE
Well, for this year’s solstice, Elizabeth and I did a more modest hike – up and down the Pinnacle Peak trail in Scottsdale. The weather was perfect and the mountain was teeming with hikers. There were even some people rapelling the nearly vertical cliffs at the very top of Pinnacle Peak.
Solstice: Celestial New Year
As a shaman, I have come to realize that the December solstice is actually the Celestial New Year. Jan 1 by the Gregorian calendar, and Jan 13 by the Julian one, are merely man-created new year’s.
Back home, this is what yours truly looked like at the exact December 2014 Solstice Moment, i.e., the Celestial New Year 4,500,000, 2015. 🙂
So Happy Solstice and a Happy Celestial New Year everyone!
