Astrology of Now: Solstice
“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”
— CS Lewis
The Sun, our own mighty star, enters the Cardinal sign of the Goat-Fish tomorrow just before 4.30pm GMT on December 21, and so we enter deep winter.
This is the Solstice — the longest night and shortest days. And this one is special because the old teacher, Saturn, has returned to his home sign for the first time since 1991, and he greets the Sun at 0° Capricorn. As I mentioned in my previous post, this has not happened since 1664, so this Solstice holds a great deal of power.
In some ways, this moment holds the DNA for what will unfold over the coming two years as Saturn travels through Capricorn, so take a moment to think about what that might mean for you.
What solid, long-lasting thing do you want to lay the foundations for? A new country, a marriage, a business? What do you want to parent or stabilise? Even if you have no idea (yet) of how you want to work with this new, powerful energy, make a commitment to commitment at this Solstice, a commitment to integrity. That is the key to Saturn in Capricorn.
(I have to thank my dear friend Anne Whitaker for helping me understand that clearly.)
May the power be with you!
