O Winter! bar thine adamantine doors:
The north is thine; there hast thou built thy dark
Deep-founded habitation. Shake not thy roofs,
Nor bend thy pillars with thine iron car.’
He hears me not, but o’er the yawning deep
Rides heavy; his storms are unchain’d, sheathèd
In ribbèd steel; I dare not lift mine eyes,
For he hath rear’d his sceptre o’er the world.
Lo! now the direful monster, whose 1000 skin clings
To his strong bones, strides o’er the groaning rocks:
He withers all in silence, and in his hand
Unclothes the earth, and freezes up frail life.
He takes his seat upon the cliffs,–the mariner
Cries in vain. Poor little wretch, that deal’st
With storms!–till heaven smiles, and the monster
Is driv’n yelling to his caves beneath mount Hecla. ~~WILLIAM BLAKE
Solstice comes from the Latin words, sol, meaning sun, and sistere, meaning to stand still. And time STANDS STILL as karma takes center stage. The whole vibe I feel is so KARMIC, it is like a million deja-vus happening together! Do you feel it? This is no ordinary night. This is special…so very, very special! Light those CANDLES. Use the aroma diffuser with a blend of cinnamon and spices and watch what happens.
This is the LONGEST NIGHT of the year and it gives us a chance to really peer into the darkness within and without. Firstly we have to understand, that DARKNESS is not evil. DARKNESS just IS.
Even though, the concept of DARKNESS has been perverted in the world, it is imperative to remember that even the Bible, a product of Monotheism and divorced from the Eastern POV of WHOLISTIC understanding of DUALITY, stated that “darkness surrounds the pavilion” of God, ”
HPB writes of Darkness “in the sense of the Unmanifested and the Unknown as the opposite pole to manifestation, and that which falls under the possibility of speculation. … it is not Darkness as absence of Light, but as one incomprehensible primordial Principle, which, being Absoluteness itself, has for our intellectual perceptions neither form, colour, substantiality, nor anything that could be expressed by words.”
During the SOLSTICE, we can meditate on this DARK, UNMANIFESTED PRINCIPLE which is not manifested, but everything you see in the world emanates from that SOURCE CODE!
SATURN has now moved into his own sign of CAPRICORN and this is a homecoming like none other and VENUS joins him there on Christmas day. SATURN is ready to be the Santa and give us the presents. Finally it is time. It is time to understand where we stand in or own lives and how the world perceives us.
SATURN, also known as the GRIM REAPER is now ready to elucidate that after all when everything finishes, what remains are MEMORIES. Have you made memories with someone during the Saturn in SAG transit. Even if the memories are excruciatingly painful, let them BE. Memories need acknowledgement and integration and that takes spiritual practice. But it can be done.
It was in my SOLAR FIFTH house and I finally decided to jump into Lifecoaching/astro/tarot and look where I am. SATURN in the fifth also gave me my baby. Now it is my 6th house of health, so I have to now claim authorship for my own health and day-to-day routines.Stoic SATURN will make me restructure everything.
There is a SQUARE formation between the AQUARIUS MOON, which is ruled by Saturn who has just made his transit into CAP and fiery, passionate MARS, the ruler of SCORPIO and ARIES.
Thankfully, the AQUARIUS MOON is known to be detached and level headed, so the passionate outburst that may be created by MARS, the planet of war, might be dealt with objective,analytical understanding.
This can be regarding many themes like finances or love, death, accident or wild sex; it all depends on your natal placements of course. But this volatile MARTIAN/MALE ENERGY is now vibing and contacting our EMOTIONAL SELF which is the MOON. The SQUARE is a standoff where the planetary energies are at cross purposes.
This SOLSTICE is special. Listen to what Tara Greene has to say.
This extremely RARE event can spell “DOUBLE TROUBLE.” It’s only happened three times in the past 1000 years with Sun conjunct Saturn at December Solstice in 1664 1458 and 1105- the closest union-2 degrees apart.
What happened in 1664? Jupiter’s great red spot was discovered. Expect big new astronomy discoveries. In 1664 the ENGLISH gained the small city of New Amsterdam and renamed it New York.
In 1105 The Crusades battles over who owned JERUSALEM were happening in 1105 during the last Saturn Sun conjunction at Winter Solstice! 1012 years ago. Still fighting. ~~
Maybe it now finally time to end fighting! 2020 will be EPIC! The SATURN/PLUTO CONJUNCTION will restructure everything we know. Cannot wait seriously!
The loneliness of being human may get to you today, but use this as a creative gestation period. Tonight is very fertile as MARS who rules over our desires, now in SCORPIO, along with JUPITER conjuncts each other. Both in SCORPIO, the sign of depth and sexuality. Expect to want to hold someone, kiss deeply and really connect with another person. Connect mind, body, soul. Mars in Scorpio is not interested in superficial sex. It wants a crazy, passionate depth. It might scare some people, but today is not a day to let your fears crowd these emotions.
JUPITER SQUARES the SOUTH NODE in AQUARIUS, where La Luna is also placed right now. South Node is KARMIC, it is about past lives. It might be a theme of LETTING GO. It might be a theme of CONNECTION, but with KETU, there is always dissolution. Keep that in mind.
The North Node in LEO is also involved and this involves working through the EGO barriers we have created for ourselves. Are we prisoners of our own ego? Are we caught up in our own drama? If you have been exploited, then it might be corrected in 2018. The Solstice holds a promise.
MERC RX is now almost about to move direct. It is on 13 degrees of Sag. 13 being a feminine number, berated and maligned by patriarchy. Honor the Goddess and realign with the FEMININE within.
MERC RX is SQUARE NEPTUNE, the higher OCTAVE of VENUS. Neptune is at 11 of Pisces which is the ultimate mystical sign. This SQUARE energy is bringing some confrontation between what we perceive of the world and what constitutes reality. What is reality? What do you perceive? What do you feel? Just make sure you are not deluded or resorting to substances.
VENUS is OUT OF BOUNDS which means there could be hidden facets to love and finances. She is at 25 of Sag and on Dec 23 she will cross the Galactic Center or the COSMIC YONI from where she will now receive messages. The GC has been super active. Read my last posts for more clarity.
CHIRON and VENUS are SQUARING it off too, up in the skies. What can bring healing to your love life? What can make you more financially stable? Are finances draining your capacity to function as a creative human being? Explore this Chirotic wound and bring healing to the Venusian themes in life.
Lilith CONJUNCTS Saturn soon in CAPRICORN and this is a day to watch for, the 26th Dec. Watch for raw, untamed feminine power that may lash out or be expressed with beauty organically. There could be literal rapes as well where men in power are concerned, but this time Lilith will bring them down. Jupiter in Scop is expanding these themes and Pluto, the GREAT DESTROYER is already saying hello to the new comers in Capricorn. Hello, there, let the purge begin!
