Winter Solstice is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere (11:20pm EST). A stationing of the Sun on its ecliptic at its furthest southern point (23° South). This is rebirth, renewal, and reawakening. This is the time to prepare for the coming year by organizing our intentions and resolutions. A time to recognize the fears, the pains, the losses, the outmoded ways of our past, allowing them to die that we may be reborn. That we may rise up out of the sea, work tirelessly to engage our mobility, and find ourselves, through diligent determination, commitment, and loyalty to our dreams, on top of the mountain we set out to summit. This is the journey of the sea goat, the archetype of Capricorn. It is the quintessential mythology describing life from its earliest lifeforms to its highest consciousness and self-awareness. This is our journey of healing and awakening. Winter Solstice asks that we resolve our shortcomings, forgive ourselves and each other, and welcome our Sun in its cycle of returning. This is the true new year. The ending of all that must fade away and the birth of all that we intend to bring to fruition. Encapsulate the essence of your soul’s intentions and set out on your ascent to the summit of your dreams.
Wishing you all health, prosperity, wisdom, and discipline on your journey ahead.
Mars in Scorpio sextile Saturn in Capricorn starts our day today. These planets are in their home signs (Mars traditionally), helping them both work together to bring us further personal growth. The recognitions we’ve been having over the past week or so are begging us to take action and stay committed to the changes and rebuilding process we’ve embarked upon. We are in the midst of a deep psychological rebirth that can only come to fruition through determination and loyalty to our intentions. As Moon enters Libra this morning, we begin to weigh the value of the relationships we’ve been witnessing and more clearly understanding over the past few weeks. The grounding reality check going on has been an opportunity to lay a foundation under these relationships and build up and out into vastly more expansive horizons. Venus will enter Aquarius very early tomorrow morning, helping us raise the bar on our relationships and instill a higher purpose and calling to the value of them. Perhaps we will begin to recognize how we can apply that value to our community and tribal network. What essential contributions can our most sacred relationships bring to enhance the community and circle of friends we cherish? It is time to work together to elevate our local vibrations. Gather those you love this Solstice weekend and forge a unique future of communal engagement. The changes coming are going to begin there.
Venus and Pluto join together today. Witnessing our interactions and experiences we share with one another from a higher perspective helps us better understand the truths and roots inherent in our actions. The value of the deep connections we share, and how well those connections are evolving and growing, is the prominent theme of today. This year-long cycle beginning is one of rebirth and regeneration in our relationships. Invisible transformative forces are swarming between us, conjuring up our limitations, endings, and deaths, as well as our commitments, deep memories, and certainly our sexuality and passions. With Moon at home in Cancer joining its North Node this morning, how we personalize and process all these feelings of insecurity and trauma helps us along in compassionately entering into a new chapter with one another. And Mars in Scorpio trining Neptune in Pisces brings ample opportunity to find emotional healing and growth deep within our own personal process and transformation. It is an important day for tuning into our emotional healing and committing to a more valuable relationship with each other. Reflection always brings rewards, as long as the intent involves our future.
This is the assimilation of all knowledge gained from our past. The rising of truths from the depths of our unconsciousness hold keys to understanding how we’ve fallen short in our lives. Fear can betray the values inherent in our processing this. Only when we trust the journey we’ve navigated has brought us to this day for good reason can we forgive ourselves and find faith in the process unfolding ahead of us.
Take what you’ve learned and don’t waste that knowledge. Assimilate it by applying it to all the unknowns in your life. The Great Mystery reveals itself in subtle nuances if we expand the vessel in which we absorb the truth. That vessel is our consciousness.
The light all around us is not only within the source, it is in the air that we breathe, the invisible space between the provider and recipient. And once that light is assimilated, it can be a reflective source of more light to others.
Whether you’ve heard about the Saturn Pluto conjunction on Jan 12, 2020 or you haven’t, it doesn’t matter. There has been an ominous sense of doom pervading and growing in our lives for quite some time. There is death, loss, and a foreboding anxiety about what may be lost next. Depending upon where this is happening in you natal chart paints the picture of how and what kind of dread you’ve been experiencing. And it’s not just happening to you. It’s happening to everyone everywhere, and it’s happening on the geo-political and socio-economic stage. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn take NO prisoners. Trust me. We have 38 days to look up from the trenches we’ve dug for ourselves and build whatever it takes to emerge into a magic we so desperately want and need. It won’t happen without commitment.
