Hello Solstice! Happy Birthday Capricorn!
* Astrology * sun enters Capricorn Saturday, December 21, 2019 at 10:19 PM CST
Things are getting heavy with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction imminent but the solstice (and the new moon solar eclipse on Christmas Day) is a moment of cosmic support and serendipity during an otherwise trying time.
Capricorn is a cardinal sign which means we often feel motivated to set goals and start something new. That’s one reason new year's resolutions are so popular and fitting this time of year. Many people have some time off work and can pause and reflect about what is truly important. Setting priorities is another wonderful Capricorn tendency.
The coming month is going to be a tough one (anyone feelings impending doom or anxiety?) but at this moment, with the sun approaching Jupiter in the sign of Capricorn we can be grateful that we are blessed with everything we need at this moment in time.
As the darkness reaches its maximum point (the winter solstice) and we experience the darkest night of the year, we can go within and see how we are doing on the inside. Are we full of darkest or is our inner fire burning bright and illuminating the darkness like the holiday lights do on our homes and in our neighborhoods? As we pass through the portal from darkness into a time when light increases its symbolic of how we commit to increasing our our inner light, through self work, intentions, goals and resolutions.
Even though we have been hearing all year about how hard this coming January will be we are being given a moment of reprieve and a boost of positive energy during this year’s solstice. Embrace it. Allow it to sustain you during the difficult times ahead. We have the strength and wherewithal to get through this and come out the other side more powerful and more peaceful than ever before. In this moment we can locate the guiding light in the darkness, and if we commit to following what lights us up, we will find the source of light within. And that light can sustain us and see us through.
Through the Gateway
Into the Underworld
Full Moon in Gemini
The energy right now is so intense. And depending on how it is hitting your chart you are either in the greatest struggle of you life or thinking it's time to party like it's 1999.
The Gemini Full Moon can be cavalier and not take what;s going on as seriously as things deserve. On the other hand, with Venus besieged by Saturn and Pluto who are drawing ever closer to their conjunction next month, setting the tone of this generation, we feel darkness like never before. We are desperate to save the love of our life but we aren't sure if it's even possible.
This is where the brashness and audacity of this Gemini full moon comes in to save the day. We CAN do the IMPOSSIBLE! And it's hardly even a big deal.
If you are wavering between despair and mania know that you aren't alone. Ask the angels for help and prepare to pass through the cosmic gateway into the shadow. You might have to give up everything to survive but it's worth it to save your Love.
Jupiter enters Capricorn today and it's a blessing in the midst of the Saturn-Pluto storm that has been plaguing us. We have had to simplify and prioritize our lives, sometimes harshly, but with the addition of Jupiter we can begin building again. There is something architectural about this energy so make sure you are building something with a solid foundation that can truly last, otherwise it will get washed away by the storm.
Jupiter remains in Capricorn until December 2020. It will be my Jupiter return, always a good time! How will Jupiter in Capricorn affect you? What are you planning to build upon over the next year?
