Part One (Part Two – The Summer Solstice 2018 – coming soon…)
Astrologically the winter solstice in the northern hemispheres is the Sun moving from Sagittarius to Capricorn. Included is the winter solstice chart for Washington DC (see chart above).
This winter solstice is the epitome of the patriarchy both the higher vibrations of the patriarchy and the lowest vibrations.
Capricorn is an earth sign represented by a Mountain Goat, tenuous and tough and very grounded practical and dependable. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Many people who know a smattering about astrology get freaked when a Saturn transit occurs, but Saturn transits are about focus hard work, discipline, constraint and accomplishment.
There is likely to be a delusional and deceptive force at play in injected new life into patriarchal goals.
This winter solstice is the epitome of the patriarchy both the higher vibrations of the patriarchy and the lowest vibrations. Since I set the chart for Washington DC the solstice sun is set in an exalted place for patriarchal accomplishment geared to make money internationally and poised for truth. Saturn and Sun are conjunct meaning their energies are blended. Work and authority will drive the economy to new heights. The danger here is probably obvious – the GOP and Trump’s greed are established in a race to make the most money domestically and internationally. (Venus in Sagittarius – Venus representing money, Sagittarius’s – international focus on money and truth.) Watch for accidental leaks of truth saying during this time. Mercury will be retrograde at the solstice bring intensity to thinking, communication both verbal and written. There are likely to be mistakes. If the GOP Tax scam is passed before Friday at 8:50 pm EST while Mercury is retrograde then the flaws will become evident and possible help dismantle the law.
Transformational energies of networks and institutions are likely to be amplified.
The placement of Neptune – spirituality and cosmic consciousness may seem to magically fuel the American economy as defined by the Stock Market and international corporate investment (Sun Saturn), but through secret agendas and murky plots – i.e. cover-ups. There is likely to be a delusional and deceptive force at play in injected new life into patriarchal goals.
Uranus – revolution-evolution, trickster, disruptor energy blended with fighting for justice and/or the oppressed (asteroid Pallas Athena) is part of this winter solstice
High trickster energy may enter to disrupt and /or augment the greed and money making rush. There will probably be an emotional conflict of secretive actions versus doing the right thing for all. Transformational energies of networks and institutions are likely to be amplified.
On an individual basis beginning a new project may succeed based on hard work – so what else is new – and as long as that hard work is aligned with a spiritual “right path” then there is a greater chance of success.
The movement for truth and the transition team to takes us peacefully from patriarchy to the forming partnership paradigm can also be seen in the winter solstice chart. (Uranus – revolution-evolution, trickster, disruptor energy blended with fighting for justice and/or the oppressed is part of this winter solstice).
