– December 22, 2023 (03:27 GMT)
The Solar enters Capricorn within the early hours of December twenty second. This heralds the Solstice, the change in season when the Solar ‘stands nonetheless’ within the sky, the literal that means of sol-stice (Solar – stands nonetheless).
The Solstice is among the 4 markers of the zodiac, once we attain the shortest day and longest evening or longest day and shortest evening, relying the place you reside. Right here within the UK, the times will quickly be rising longer and the nights shorter.
Certainly one of my favorite quotes in regards to the Solstice states, “one thing in us must know that on the finish of the longest evening there can be mild”. This appears particularly poignant at the moment of yr.
The Solstice heralds a starting because it welcomes in a brand new season. Make sure that to honour the Solstice and light-weight a hearth or burn candles. This custom is in honour of the warmth and heat of the Solar which brings us vitality, power and life. Honour the Solstice by meditation, journalling or finishing the yr that’s gone.
The Solar in Capricorn makes us consider work, obligation and duty. But, Capricorn is the shaman with hidden depths, who finds fulfilment and that means by being alone, not lonely. You may need to stride up a mountain this week, take your self off someplace quiet or sit in silence.
The Solstice this yr feels particular. It is because, on the day of the Solstice, we attain the half-way level of the present Mercury retrograde part, which is when the Solar is strictly conjunct Mercury, the planet which guidelines communication and the thoughts. Plus, they meet at a potent diploma 0° Capricorn.
The Solar/Mercury conjunction is the change-over time when Mercury strikes from setting behind the Solar within the west to rise earlier than the Solar within the east. It modifications from being a night star to a morning star.
Presently Mercury is trying backwards which might be linked to insights from the previous. Throughout retrograde phases there may be extra deal with the unconscious and it’s a fertile time of studying and analysis.
Successfully, that is Mercury’s hidden part when Mercury is mid-way by its retrograde part. What’s being introduced forth in your life? What messages are you receiving?
Make the time to hearken to your internal voice through the Solstice, particularly near the Solar/Mercury conjunction. Look out for synchronicities and nudges from the universe and hearken to your desires.
When a planet is inside 17′ arc of the Solar, that is referred to as ‘cazimi’ in astrology.
