Winter Solstice 2012

“You are not the oil, you are not the air – merely the point of combustion, the flash point where the light is born.” Dag Hammarskjold

The Sun enters Capricorn Friday December 21 marking the time of the Winter Solstice. For centuries people have gathered around the fire at this time to call back the light.

Calling back the light is a good symbol for our times.

Many astrologers believe the Winter Solstice this year marks the beginning of a new age – the Age of Aquarius- in which the m.o. on the earth plane will start to evolve away from from fear and greed into love. Energetically we are all part of this change or the resistance to it.

In the chart for the Solstice the Sun is conjunct Juno the asteroid of commitment and Pluto the asteroid of transformation and change. It bodes well as intentions and commitments are set for the upcoming year to keep our aspirations high for the evolution of the earth in a more holistic, healthy direction.
