Every year we celebrate the Winter Solstice as the day that awakens the light. December 21 is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun moves into Capricorn, which begins the winter season and often cold weather for us in New Jersey.
This year we have a special planetary alignment at the Winter Solstice that affects everyone worldwide. The Planets Saturn and Jupiter are joined at zero degrees Aquarius.
When these two planets meet in the sky every twenty years, they begin a new phase for the world to experience. This is another placement that augurs the age of Aquarius by this combination at zero degrees on the day of Winter Solstice.
A theme for Aquarius is all for one and one for all. Both a personal and collective focus at the same time. Aquarius awakens us to collective responsibility as our true selves. For this to occur this year on the Solstice portends, a big shift point and change coming.
As we gather on the Winter Solstice, it is good to explore a grander purpose for all of us to be self-sustaining and productive. Discovering who we are and what our place is, on the whole, is an important theme to explore. Living our true self with clarity and peace serves all.
Aquarius is represented by the planet Uranus which is known for lightning bolt change. What changes do we need to make to improve society now? What is our part in this change?
Looking at Saturn and Jupiter joining in inspiring a new era, we might wonder what will occur? Saturn is the structure, and Jupiter is the expander joined in Aquarius offers opportunities to work together. The adventure continues as we have found that half of our world sees everything very differently, and at this juncture, many do not want to work together.
On the Solstice, join with your family, gather on Zoom with a spiritual community, or alone, meditate, pray, celebrate, and set your intentions for the New Season, Year, and twenty-year cycle opening. Reach for the stars, the highest truth, and love, and let’s say a collective prayer for this next cycle to advance the best change for all.
