December 21st is the Winter Solstice, we experience the shortest amount of daylight and the longest night. Many cultures celebrate and create rituals to honor the Sun. Solstice literally means the sun is standing still…..this is a traditional time for renewal. It was believed in Pagan times as a rebirth, where the Moon gave birth to the Sun. During the solstice we can meditate on our highs & lows of the past year and envision new growth. Where can we have more compassion going forward? Where did we need to step into our power and trust the process? Where did we make changes? When we tune into Capricorn energy at the beginning of each year, we have the opportunity to take responsibility for what we want. Capricorn in it’s best light is disciplined, practical and uses resources wisely. We can use these themes when we set our intention for a new year .
Candle Ritual for the Winter Solstice
Take some time to yourself or ask some close friends to join you for a candle ceremony. Light a white or golden candle on a round platter or in a large glass bowl with water. You can add to your candle ceremony by putting meaningful offerings around it such as: crystals, scented herbs, ribbons that honor a loved one, a tarot/oracle card you choose for the ceremony. Take some time to reflect or meditate and ask the universe for the highest good on your journey this year. After you set your intention, simply blow out the candle or let it burn out.
WISHING YOU A WARM WINTER SOLSTICE ☮
The fluid Cancer moon washes its emotions through a powerful and beautiful opposition today if you choose to look at the reality of your loved ones emotions. Compassion, understanding and honesty can release the power of past karma with others. Capricorn Courage to feel the Cancer moon’s instinctual need to care. ✨
Venus is the planet of love, affection, attraction and connection. She also rules money and our attitude and relationship with it. During this week Venus transits Saturn and Pluto. Not the most joyous spot for her to visit in the heavens …..nevertheless we can be conscious of this position and take that into consideration with relationship and finances. When Venus conjoins Saturn, there can be a cooling down of affection and expression. Not to worry or take defensively, this is a short transit bringing a more sober and serious attitude. A good time for helping or taking care of shared responsibilities. Saturn also likes to give reality checks and could ask us to pump the brakes on spending during this time.
Venus separates from the Saturnian influence and applies to Pluto on Dec.12th. Pluto intensifies anything that it touches, as Venus just cooled off with Saturn, she now may become extremely focused on a relationship . This day can bring an intensity or misunderstanding in relationships as Pluto is known for it’s transformative properties. Keep a cool head and remember to be patient with yourself and loved ones. Jealousy or defensiveness can be a byproduct of Pluto. Again this transit is short lived.
In the middle of the week we experience a Full Moon in Gemini, also traditionally known as the “Cold Moon” or the “Long Nights Moon”. The air element of the Gemini moon tends to be more outgoing and social, your mind is full of details. Despite the undertone of all the conservatism in the air, this is a good night/day to enjoy company and conversations with friends. Full moons tend to exaggerate or strengthen the mood, perfect for a holiday party or a quick visit. There is plenty going on to debate or discuss on this busy day.
Dec. 12 Jupiter in Capricorn communicates with Uranus in Taurus through a earthy trine aspect helping us avoid getting in a rut with other rigid transits operating at the same time. Jupiter seeks opportunity while Uranus seeks freedom …finding a practical way to work things out differently. Find an outlet to bring more energy to those mundane tasks , could be worth your while. Becoming more conscious of these energies can help navigate these restless urges.
Dec. 13/14 Friday/Saturday A compassionate grand water trine forms. Use this harmonious day to slow down and connect with those closest to us. A healing balm for the past week, we can feel more supportive, accessible and considerate of others. Tap into the focus of Mars in Scorpio paired with the higher expression of love through Neptune in Pisces and the concern of the Moon in Cancer.
The Capricorn influence during December and January is strong so here are some keywords to contemplate…Responsibility, reliability, caution, boundaries, destiny, duty, reasonable, witty, dry humor, frankness, maturity, practicality, determination and reserve. Capricorn archetype is the Father, ruled by Saturn the planet of time. We can use this energy to move forward with discipline, if we decide to listen to our inner task master. This is a time to do the things we really don’t want to do , but need to do. Be patient and take one step at a time and gradually you will get things done in Capricorn style.
12/02/19 Jupiter has started its year long cycle through the sign of Capricorn. A major energy shift from the 2019 experience of Jupiter in it’s home sign of Sagittarius….Spontaneous, enthusiastic, generous, and faith that the universe will provide. The focus was on personal development , spiritual expansion ,creative freedom and casting a big net for the blessings that Jupiter can provide. Saying YES! was a big part of 2019 and depending where it highlighted your personal chart ,you can look back and see the progress you made or the big changes that created more freedom. Jupiter can exaggerate or magnify the areas you focused this energy on . A little overwhelming at times by broadening our scope at a rapid pace , this abundance brought new knowledge and increased cultural and spiritual awareness ……with Jupiter entering the conservative earth sign of Capricorn we could feel like its the end of a vacation where the reality of going back to work sets in and the mood changes. Moderation in this Jupiter cycle will be a benefit to balance the abundance of Sagittarius . We now can plan and organize our creations that came to us , we are slowing down the pace to prioritize the important details. Capricorn energy wants to manage the new growth and make some responsible decisions .2020 our Jupiterian blessings may come in the form of determined and practical steps toward our success, where we ground our projects and dreams with a solid effort. Being rewarded for hard work is as sweet as it gets. Capricorn brings reality and Jupiter offers opportunity …. “Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work – and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.”Lucille Ball
I’ve dedicated myself to monthly horoscopes which is a new practice for me, I’m ready for the focus in the new decade ahead.Sometimes you need to just start from where you are and have faith that the process will teach you along the way.

Under construction is the first thing that jumps to mind when I think of Capricorn.Good thing we love to build! As this is my personal sign, I can attest to the amount of building going on since 2008 when Pluto moved into Capricorn .Pluto reconstructs anything that isn’t working for your higher good, it can be destructive but when the dust settles a new world can be created in a form that better suits your life.Saturn entered this arena in Dec.2017 to examine and test the new building project for its stability.Overall we have been asked to mature and step towards the responsibilities before us.January brings the powerful conjunction between Pluto & Saturn this concentrates our focus on construction or destruction enabling us to evolve and move forward..
