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.

Notes on the Week Ahead

“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
This week has several interesting aspects. As the Sun moves up to square the Lunar Nodes the time is right for making an important decision. There is extra support from the universe in identifying and moving beyond habitual patterns  – of a karmic or ancestral nature – that can impede your efforts to move in a desired direction.
There is a high vibration of inspiration and energy that can be accessed this week. With the Nodes in Pisces and Virgo it bodes well to create a pragmatic path to ground the vision.
This time of year is akin to Persephone’s journey through the underworld – walking through the darkness. Carl Jung wrote that the yearning for light is the yearning for consciousness.  It bodes well to keep the inner fires burning brightly as we head towards the Return of the Light – the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere- on December 21.
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.
