The solstice on December 21 signifies a period of time when the Sun reaches a standstill, activating a wise silence, as we are invited to listen to our own internal worlds with greater clarity.
Your soul knows this silence at a very deep level of your being. An infinite well of stillness that is a portal to your own peace frequency.
Twice a year, we are gifted with an opportunity to practice stillness and check in with our full energy frequency: heart, mind, body and soul.
Simply placing your hand on your heart, closing your eyes, and hearing your own breathing for one minute allows you to truly listen to the state of your being in this moment.
In Western astrology, the Capricorn Solstice is when we enter into the last quarter of the zodiac wheel with a focus on responsibility, maturity, and an ongoing commitment to your soul's mastery.
As the Sun reaches 0 degrees Capricorn, it makes a motivating square to Jupiter that returns to 0 degrees Aries and re-activates what may have been a false start earlier this year.
But look at how you have grown and fine-tuned even more because the Universe gave you an opportunity to check in with what you really want that honors your truth, needs, and sense of self.
Jupiter in Aries has been traveling behind Chiron in Aries in 2022, revealing the wisdom and growth in your personal deeper healing themes.
Capricorn and Aries are leadership energies with very different styles, yet a common desire to begin what you feel called to follow. There may be a rising pressure to 'just do it' or 'start it anyways' or 'now is the time' to go for it. A beautiful push from the Universe to break out of your own limitations and believe that you are supported in unseen ways.
Jupiter in Aries will take the risk, while the planets in Capricorn will assess the potential outcomes and results. Fire and earth together can be a powerful force of inspired action and tangible results that lead to a new season of growth in your life.
- A Zero point of pure potential is powerfully activated at this solstice, signaling that the Universe is opening up new pathways, doorways, and opportunities to move into over the next 3 months until the Aries Equinox.
- An empowering new self-belief is expanding. Burn down the old and open up to the new perspectives that remind you of your infinite creation abilities.
- The resurgence of a desired goal may become clearer and brighter. Maybe you gave up on something, but the Universe did not. Dream bigger, push yourself out of your head, and trust your gut more. If you're receiving a message to try something new, it's because the Universe already has the next steps lined up.
- Burdens, challenges, responsibilities, and difficulties are part of the human experience. Your soul knew this before you incarnated. Opportunities to develop more fortitude and strength reveal Universal support, especially as you stay the course.
- Strengthen your light with renewed self-acceptance, which creates ripple effects throughout the whole cosmic grid. You're doing the best you can; simply continuing to show up in your authentic energy counts more than you can see or know.
- Breathe new air into your backbone. Stretch your vertebrae. Expand what has been cramped, limited, or too tight in your body. Your cells will feel even more alive with this intentional practice.
- Identify what can be realistically completed from now until March 21. Catch up, clean up, level up, boss up, glow up.
- Focus on renewed commitments to yourself; whatever that means to you. Shake off whatever perceived to "fail" this year. Let yourself off the hook for what you didn't know previously. Allow yourself a new beginning because you are worth it. The dream is worth it.
Life is short enough. Precious time is passing at an increasing speed. Tomorrow happens because you lived today.
To quote the incomparable Mary Oliver:
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
Sink into the peacefulness of your soul's trusting frequency.
All is well within this heartbeat of a moment.
Listening to your own stillness is a solstice gift that syncs you up even more with Universal forces.
