"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Winter Solstice 2015

   Welcome to the Sun moving into Capricorn at 11:49 pm tonight, or, the Winter Solstice. This is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. As the days progress slowly toward the cross-quarter point of Candlemas, or Groundhog Day, the Light also increases, until day and night are of equal length at the Vernal Equinox. I always feel better knowing the Light is coming back, but first, we have to address the Sun at 00 degrees of Capricorn.

   The Light of the World, The Christ, The Son/Sun in the Cardinal earth sign Capricorn  brings attention to the necessity and responsibility of practical matters, resources, business and taking care of the body. Capricorn has ruler-ship over form and function and thus begins a time of increased effort to build solid foundations in these earthly realms.

   Where does Capricorn fall in your birth chart? What do you need to do to achieve personal stability and security in the world? These are necessary questions to ask at the start of this month long passage of the Sun through Capricorn as it sets the stage for your success. Ask yourself what is your response-ability to those who rely on you, whether family, community or the bigger picture on the world stage.

    What you begin now and work hard on will grow and increase your well being in the world. Take care of business, watch the daylight gradually increase and remember, Light always triumphs over darkness. See the Light, Be the Light and Spread the Light~
