Solstice Blessings to all!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the winter solstice marks the beginning of the winter. It is the shortest day of the year, featuring the least amount of daylight between sunrise and sunset.

The Sun just moved into the sign of Capricorn (the Goatfish). Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth sign ruled by Saturn. The Romans celebrated the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn as Saturnalia, a festival which welcomed back the return of the Sun’s power after the shortest day of the year.

The Sun will remain here until January 19th when it moves into Aquarius. While in Capricorn some of its major astrological aspects will include a conjunction to Pluto on January 7th, a square to Uranus in Aries on January 10th and a square to Jupiter on January 11th.
