The Solar enters Saturn-ruled Capricorn at 10:27 pm EST. We arrive at one other Winter Solstice (within the Northern Hemisphere) – the longest evening. The darkest level of the yr is ripe with chance (as are all Solstices and Equinoxes) as a result of this is likely one of the Cardinal turning factors. There is a particular shift from one state to a different as we cross over into longer days.
Capricorn is about crystallization, historical past and the dividing line between previous and future. Traditions tackle added emphasis as does the attention of mortality. What’s actual (what you have dedicated to, the principles you could observe) can weigh closely – you might really feel trapped or supported. Earlier than the sunshine will increase, you need to use the darkness and stillness to look at which traditions you need to hold/rejoice and which of them you need to jettison. After all, some guidelines are non-negotiable so this strategy of examination may also be about how you’ll work inside limits as you progress ahead.
Endings are additionally a Capricorn theme so the longest evening is a wonderful time to say goodbye (completely) to previous commitments.
Within the Southern Hemisphere now we have the Summer time Solstice (longest day) which happens on Dec twenty second. For a short second, time stands nonetheless and also you’re flooded with mild (quite than darkness). Capricorn themes are totally illuminated by the Solar at peak energy. A brand new chapter begins as you step into longer nights.
Simply earlier than the Solar enters Capricorn there’s a Waxing Trine between the Aries Moon and Sagittarius Solar (29 deg). Here’s a burst of momentum (fuelled by the urgency of ultimate levels) that carries you into the longest evening by way of a stream of braveness, initiative and independence. The Solar opposes Vesta Rx (newly returned to Gemini) and spotlights a key message/alternative/duality that calls for your consideration. An ending or end result includes pressure between a much bigger goal “on the market” vs what grabs your focus proper right here.
All this may inform the ending and new starting of the Solstice.
Additionally as we speak, Mercury Rx in Capricorn makes a sextile to Saturn in Pisces (2 deg) for quiet, sober conversations/realizations. This facet occurred beforehand on Dec 2nd so that you’re returning to this (or receiving a message from the previous).
Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus Rx in Taurus (19 deg) and makes a sextile to Juno in Virgo (20 deg), suggesting a radical ending or 180 deg flip in a relationship, monetary or vanity matter. Appropriately for this boundary-crossing time, Venus/Uranus can free you as management is yanked away. Too, there will be shocking revelations about what you really need and love as one thing deeper is uncovered. Uranus gives readability via detachment, so what you thought you possessed will be taken away. However Venus’ sextile to Juno whispers that this will open up a relationship contract- new particulars and options emerge. Maybe you conform to let go. No matter occurs, it is not the time to insist on management or possession.
