Solstice plus Eclipse bigger deal to Moonbats than the "C" word
Oh, what an exciting week this is! Because we're almost to (forgive the expression) Christmas, you say? Bah! Humbug! Don't say the "C" word! No, the big deal in DUmmieland this week is the Winter Solstice! PLUS a lunar eclipse on top of it! MUCH bigger deal than the birth of the Savior of the world!
This is further proof of my long-held thesis that the primary factor motivating the DUmmies is their burning HATRED of Christianity! So anything that is seen as an ALTERNATIVE to Christianity is widely hailed. Thus the celebration of the Winter Solstice, as a paean to paganism. Why, did you know that DUmmieland even has forums dedicated to an Ancient Wisdom and Pagan Spirituality Group and an Astrology, Spirituality & Alternative Healing Group? And they think *Christianity* is goofy??
'Tis the season to be looney! We'll be sampling from many threads, too many to link to individually. The DUmmie Druid droppings are in Retro-Religion Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who believes in keeping both the "Christ" and the "Mass" in "Christmas," is in the [brackets]:
Happy Solstice Everyone!
[Heaven to DUmmie: Orbits cannot bless you. The One who set the planets in orbit can.]
The power of the 12/21 Lunar eclipse will be released on Xmas Day
[The power of Xmas Day is in the "X," which is the Greek "Ch," and that stands for "Chri"--whoops, almost said the unmentionable word!]
As the powerful Lunar Eclipse of 12/21 Solstice happens at 29 Gemini, it will launch its potential to be realized as the Sun moves forward and releases its energy on Christmas Day because the Sun will then be 1 degree (in trigger position) from transiting Pluto, at 4 and 5 Capricorn respectively.
[I think Pluto is about to align with Uranus.]
eek! I have an appointment on the 21st at a mental health clinic to be evaluated. . . I will take this as a good omen. . . .
[I'll evaluate you for no charge: If you think the position of Pluto means anything, you're NUTS!]
So, the eclipse's energies are to be released on probably the most stressful days of dysfunctional family gatherings... and I am scheduled to be at my MIL's who (she and her dh) are militant R's of the tea party persuasion. . . . My dh is on a short fuse as he is not feeling well, over-tired from working nights and is a Union Man. My 18 y/o son is proud to be a member of the National Socialist Party. I think I'm just going to drink a lot of alcohol, laugh insensibly at everything no matter how inappropriate, allow my MIL to insult me and call me a drunk like my father and pass out early.

Did you know that the Winter solstice and lunar eclipse coincide for the first time in 456 yrs. . . ?
Great, I missed it last time.
[Hee! Hee! Good one!]
The monks of old China would fast for three days on plum wine taking a small drink every four hours with a large glass of water. . . . During the time of the solstice the monks would tap on refectory tables in the dining hall non-stop for 72 hours. . . . The fast and the tapping puts you in a mild trance and often you’ll see celestial visions. . . .
You might consider tapping with your friends. . . . tap between three and four a.m. . . . the black fractal tubes that are sent out by people’s darkness are fairly dormant.
[OK, will do! I'm going to call all my friends and tell them to TAP at 3:00 a.m.! Tap for world peace! Let's overpower those black fractal tubes!]
Winter Solstice + Lunar Eclipse
[A Perfect Storm of Stupidity!]
I just wanted to wish all my Pagan friends here a blessed Solstice...
[And all you Christians? Well, you wouldn't be on DU anyways!]
Mother Earth, cradle us to your breast and sustain us. . . . Father Sky, watch over our safety and guide us to act honorably.
[Uncle Wind, blow on us and clear our driveways.]
So burn the log and watch the shadows on our longest night. . . .
[Cousin Log, DIE in the flames of Brother Fire!]
Solstice is the true Reason for the Season.
["For behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day a Season, which is Winter." Mmmm, kinda loses something. . . .]
I'm a Bi...both Pagan n Heathen.....
[The worst of both worlds!]
I generally don't use totems (unless you consider a fire a totem) or dance unless there's a really good drummer, but I do lie naked on the ground to gather the energies I perceive. . . .
[And to sleep off the drunk.]
Please, no spoilers about the solstice eclipse
[SPOILER ALERT: Sun setting early, turning mostly dark toward evening. The moon will go away for a while. Then it will come back. Sun will rise in the east in the morning.]
Solstice eclipse? Thanks a lot, you f***ing blabbermouth.
[Dang! You spoiled the big surprise!]
hooray night are gonna get shorter thank Gaia
[Gaia rest ye merry pagans. . .]
I believe in signs.
[Look for the sign that says "MENTAL HOSPITAL, STRAIGHT AHEAD."]
I believe this total lunar eclipse is a sign. To interpret the sign is for someone more intelligent than I.
[Which would be, well, just about anybody!]
Summer is on the way!
By a few seconds a day of extra light. Whoopie-f***ing-doo.
[The Grinch who stole Solstice.]
Gerbils also get the winter blues
[benburch checks in. . . .]
I've already had two major self-realizations since the eclipse. Amazing! They were both heavy.
[1) The moon came back again. 2) I'm still a DUmmie.]
