The Winter Solstice

“All thoughts begin in wonder.” Plato
In the chart for the Winter Solstice – said to foretell the energies of  the upcoming three months –  Pluto is conjunct Mercury and Pallas Athene and square Uranus.  Under this influence there is guidance available about how to implement change in your life by deepening or expanding the way you think. Pluto/Mercury aspects are powerful and can indicate resorting to compulsive thought patterns as a habit. But the key to unlocking the gifts of this aspect is to “get to the bottom of things” looking for the areas to where your thinking may have become too narrow, fragmented or limited.
Mercury in Capricorn is like the Emperor card in the Tarot deck. It speaks of maturity, organization, planning and good time management. The Emperor knows how to consolidate power. The next three months provide excellent timing to formulate and put into practice a pragmatic, well organized, long term strategy.
In the Solstice chart Jupiter makes beneficent aspects to the Moon, Mercury and Venus indicating a time that bodes well for increased wisdom, love and artistry. It bodes well to take a  more creative approach to  your projects and initiatives. Watch for intuitive guidance over the next three months that can come in unexpected flashes and provide significant breakthroughs.
We are living in times of great change and it is better to harness the transformative and evolutionary energies – personally and collectively – rather than put up resistance.
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.
