Today is the Winter Solstice. The Sun moves to 0° Capricorn at 10:27 a.m. CST
There's an interesting pattern for this Winter Solstice. Astrologer Lynn Staudacher pointed out that Saturn is also at 0° Capricorn on this auspicious day. She noted that this pattern hasn't occurred since December 1664. Her thought was that it indicates "a time of hard work, perseverance, heavy responsibility with the potential for great payback and reward."
I'd like to add that positive key words for Saturn are discipline and focus. It's a potent time to decide on one important goal for the next ninety days. Choose that as the foundation of your personal, spiritual or business-related work.
But wait, there's more …
Tomorrow Mercury goes direct at 13° Sagittarius square Neptune in 12° Pisces:
Don't make promises - There are unseen circumstances or data that's not yet know which will impact your fulfillment or those promises. The power (or weakness) of the aspect is the openness of mind to suggestion. Use this aspect's potential to repeat positive affirmations or mantras that match your Solstice goals.
And with Mercury direct, projects that have been blocked over the past 3 weeks will start (slowly) to move forward.
