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.
