Winter Solstice and New Moon in Capricorn – December 21, 2014

Winter Solstice: December 21, 2014, 6:03 pm EST (Summer Solstice in Southern Hemisphere)

NEW MOON in Capricorn: December 21 2014, 8:36 pm, EST

The Capricorn New Moon (the Sun and Moon at 0° Capricorn) brings a shift from the visionary energies of Sagittarius to the practical “can do” energies of Capricorn. It’s time to put our visions into action.

This is a very special occasion – when the New Moon follows Winter Solstice within less than 3 hours. Winter Solstice is the time of the profound turning – from experiencing the longest night of the year – to moving slowly toward the light. During Solstice the Sun seems to stand still – and many ceremonies were created in ancient times, to pray for the Sun’s return.

The New Moon sets the tone for the next 28 day cycle. Capricorn brings seriousness and a sense of purpose. It’s important to remember to balance outward activities with the “opposite” energies of Cancer and take time to nurture ourselves, our families, friends and others.

The last week of December is a good time for contemplation and for re-evaluation. What have we learned this past year? Where are our current struggles? What strengths can we draw upon? What are we ready to ready let go of? How do we prepare for the New Year? What positive outcomes can we imagine for ourselves and for the world in the coming months?

Another milestone at this same time is that the Planet Uranus which has been moving retrograde, turns direct on December 21. This Planet is still making a stressful angle with Pluto, bringing unexpected changes, breakdowns of systems, uprisings around the world and also new creative initiatives. As Uranus now moves forward, it will complete its cycle with Pluto by the end of March 2015. Hopefully there will be less turmoil and smoother transitions during this time of purification and transformation.

May this coming year bring you good health, joy and a sense of greater purpose.
