Solstice blessings and Christmas wishes to all.
This month we all need to trust in our ability to weather the continuing rough times as best we can; being authentic and focusing on making conscious life decisions are vitally important now. Astrologers had long predicted that 2020 would be one of the most challenging years ever and we have certainly had a roller coaster of a year that has left us reflecting and wondering how the New Year 2021 will unfold. December’s pivotal new moon is also a total solar eclipse and falls in Sagittarius on the 14th. This is a key moment in time, as the main themes of this lunar cycle highlight finding truth in communication, politics and media. Two major planetary shifts this month are Saturn and Jupiter arriving in Aquarius, their conjunction usually signals old ways of life dying off while new ways are taking root. On a positive note, this could be seen as a bridge for better times in 2021. On Monday the 21st the Sun moves into Capricorn and we celebrate the winter solstice, this is the shortest day of the year and from now on the days will slowly get longer as we move towards the light. The full moon arrives in Cancer on the 30th, offering an excellent opportunity for heightening intuition, focussing on inner work and setting intention for 2021.
