Winter Solstice

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.

A Sun-Neptune Poem

 

Karl_Wilhelm_Diefenbach_-_Frage_an_die_Sterne,_1901

The light of the Sun shimmers
on the surface of eternity

Bringing to life
countless soulful diamonds

Each one of them
with a unique sparkle

And for a moment
we believe in this design

and delineate the limits
of the boundless

So that we can celebrate
the formless and the eternal

It’s #tarotmonday!

The card I picked for this week is from the beautiful Motherpeace Tarot deck.

The Four of Wands: A time to pause for celebration after hard efforts.

The Four of Wands heralds celebration, good times, a happy and harmonious home environment and good news. In numerology, four symbolises stability and firm foundations, and in the case of the Four of Wands, heralds a period of happiness and stability.

This card indicates a sense of harmony and balance as well as completion, and thus symbolises a time of peace and joy in life that come as the result of often difficult and challenging effort.
The Four of Wands is one of the most positive cards in the Tarot deck and indicates general good fortune, satisfaction, and fulfilment.

The work can be put away for awhile, so that the biological and spiritual growth happening in your life can be acknowledged.
We can see a hummingbird flying overhead, blessing the girls with messages from the divine realms at this joyous celebration.
