Another crucial moment is upon us! On Tuesday, December 21st at 7:59 a.m. Pacific Time, the Sun will enter the Cardinal, Earth sign of Capricorn. This moment in time marks the arrival of the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year.
The Winter Solstice brings a time of rest and reflection. It is a moment in time in which the Universe asks us to review what we’ve learned so far and reflect on what we’ve done this past year. This sacred event asks us to find beauty in the shadows as the first step on our journey towards the light.
As we dance in this sacred space between light and dark, we welcome not only a new season, and almost a new year; we also welcome a new energetic imprint that will prevail until the exact moment that the new season arrives. In this case, the astrological chart of the Winter Solstice will prevail until March 20th of 2022, which is when the Spring Equinox arrives.
When casting the astrological chart of the Winter Solstice, we notice the Sun, freshly in Capricorn, receiving a harmonious sextile from Jupiter. This is a beautiful omen not only to begin the new season, but also to welcome the beginning of a brand-new year! Since this is one of the most positive aspects in astrology, it allows us to adopt a mindset of optimism and positive thinking that eventually leads to good fortune. Capricorn is an Earth sign of ambition and mastery, and Jupiter’s involvement here magnifies our deep need to succeed.
At the exact moment the Sun enters Capricorn, the Moon will be in nourishing Cancer. Since the Moon is the ruler of our emotions, this means that we will be somewhat guarded and very focused on home and family life. Since Cancer is a very instinctual placement for the Moon, the need for self-care, peace and quiet will be needed as a way to connect with our intuition.
Lastly, since the Moon will also be sitting exactly across from Venus retrograde and Pluto, most of our energy for the season ahead will be focused on relationships. (Which btw, it’s another overall theme for 2022) For the next three months, we can expect our need for love and affection to deepen. However, on-the-surface connections will just not cut it. We will crave the type of relationships that are deep and powerful—even if also intense at times.
