Life in the Fast Lane
Now it’s time to get down to business, to take a look at the year ahead, and welcome the Winter Solstice. I’d like to offer two key phrases for this solstice: Instant Karma and Speedy Delivery.
Pay attention to what you see, feel, and hear because it’s a direct reflection of the energies you are putting out into the world.
Since 2012, Uranus and Pluto have been interacting in a way that has brought us all to a point of awakening. Life is full on, arrayed in Technicolor, and you don’t have to wait long to determine if you’re on the right track. This can be uncomfortable, even painful, but if you utilize it correctly, it’s also a quick and easy way to determine if you’re in accordance with Universal flow.
Sun and Moon in Capricorn
Another aspect of Speedy Delivery is that as the Sun enters Capricorn in the afternoon on Sunday it’s quickly followed by the New Moon in early evening. Think of this as a cosmic exclamation point – an invitation to settle down and apply your best awareness and intentions to the life you want to create for the year ahead.
The Tree of Life: Trunk, Roots and Branches
Like a wise and ancient tree that you know will be there tomorrow, Capricorn invites you to get grounded, keep it real, and then reach for the stars. As a cardinal earth sign, Capricorn sends his roots deep into the earth, standing grounded and strong. But do not abandon your dreams. You can choose to grow strong and send out your branches of self-expression.
Capricorn is about taking care of practical matters, yet the true gift is transmutation of the earthly life and developing your fragrant blossoms of soul growth.
Shine Your Light
December is a month of extremes. Depending on whether you’re in the Northern of Southern hemispheres; you face the shortest or longest days of the year; a season that reveals the depth of darkness which must reveal the brightest Light. Every astrological sign has a dark side as well as a way to shine, and the shadows of Capricorn are related to the planet Saturn, the planet that teaches your purpose in life.
With the support of Saturn, and to shine the Light of this solstice you can transmute:
Duty into Divine Work
Fear into Strength
Restriction into Discipline
Obligation into Compassion
Suffering into Understanding
Get ready because the Uranus/Pluto square in March 2015 is fueled by Mars in Aries which conjuncts Uranus on March 11th. This will surely light a match to situations that are tenuous.
What to do? Make time for yourself, eat to live, take time in nature, breathe, and make a choice about your life.
With Jupiter now retrograde in Leo until April, it’s time to cherish the things that money cannot buy! Get in touch with your emotions behind money, and reach out and study the currency of love. Jupiter retrograde in Leo is delivering some interesting benefits such as a roll back to 2003 oil pricing – the years when Jupiter was previously in Leo.
What’s Going On – Activation Zone
Saturday, the 20th closes out the year with another memorable day as Venus and Mars activate Uranus and Pluto. Venus conjunct Pluto is an aspect of passion; take it as a reminder to connect with your true desires and then contemplate that what you want can be yours. Saturn leaves Scorpio on the 23rd, initiating a wave of relief for all of us. Although Saturn does return to the late degrees of Scorpio by June, his spell of intensity is broken. The Universe is inviting us all to step up, to give and to be the best version of ourselves that is possible. It’s time.
If life seems hard, allow it to soften you inside.
Happy Solstice! Wishing you the Light of abundance, prosperity, joy, and total fulfillment.
