21 December 2020 Winter/Summer Solstice and
the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn
Welcome weary traveller. On this eve before the Solstice you have come to the end of the long and winding road you have been walking on, with many twists and turns along the way. In front of you is a new path filled with hope and promise for A New World. But in front of you there is also a tall wall with a heavy door that blocks you from entering this new world. “Where is the key to unlock the door” you ask? Then you hear a voice saying “it is in your heart. All you have to do is shine your SPECIAL LIGHT and the door will swing wide open.”
And so you do. Not only does the door open wide but the wall dissolves. As you step onto the new path Grandfather Sun is setting in the southwest and the horizon is ablaze with red and gold. Above him are two Starry Ones so close together they look like one huge luminesce beacon of LIGHT. They speak to you. Saturn says “I am here to support you on your new journey to break through any obstacles you may encounter on the path. I give you the gift of courage and strength to be your authentic powerful self”. Then Jupiter says “my gift is to open the door to your spiritual self that you may experience growth and expansion of your new vision. You have much knowledge and wisdom to share with others just stepping onto their new path. You light the way”.
And above the Starry Ones is Sister Moon, golden in her Crescent Phase of growth, expansion, and creation. She says “Before you embark on your new journey it is time to complete and release old patterns and wounds that block you from being your magnificent self. It is Time for Renewal and remembering you are all children of The Universe. Creator and Great Mystery are always guiding you. Ask and it is given”.
In the Northern Hemisphere as the Sun enters Capricorn (5.02 am EST) Winter Solstice begins. We enter the North Direction of our Medicine Wheel, the place of stillness, solitude, and translating knowledge into wisdom. It is the home of the elder or Wisdom Keeper. The Guardian of the North is White Buffalo, prayer and gratitude for the abundance in our lives. Capricorn is the Earth Renewal Time. It is the time to strengthen our connection to our Soul’s Wisdom. Our Animal Totem guide is Snow Goose, following our dreams and visions to create the new. Today in the North Country where I live multitudes of Canadian Geese where flying overhead in a magnificent V formation calling me to follow my hopes, wishes, and new vision.
In the Southern Hemisphere this is your Summer Solstice (6.02 pm AWST Perth, Australia). You enter the South Direction of your Medicine Wheel, learning, expansion, and growth. It is the place of youth, learning to be guided by your intuitive knowing. The Guardian of the South is Coyote, curiosity, humour, and adaptability. For the Sun in Capricorn your Animal Totem guide is Flicker Woodpecker, who guides you through the transitions the spiritual path creates. Flicker’s drumming connect you with the heartbeat of the Earth Mother’s rhythms. The Totems are available to us all as they are reversed for the different Hemispheres. While the Sun visits Capricorn the Earth visits Cancer. Snow Goose and Flicker guide us all until Jan 19/20 of 2021.
Solstice means the Sun is “standing still”. For approximately four days he rises and sets at the same place on the horizon. It is a time for reflection and stillness. On this Solstice day the Moon is in Pisces, healing, forgiveness, completion, and release. Even though she is in her Crescent Phase of expansion she is “void of course” not talking to the other planets. The void period began with the Moon’s sextile to Pluto in Capricorn at 5.25 am EST. That is an opportunity for transformation personally and universally. The Moon will enter Aries at 5.32 pm EST offering us new inspired beginnings. What is interesting is the Jupiter/Saturn great conjunction at 00 degrees Aquarius (1.21 pm EST) happens during the Moon’s Void period. I believe it means “do not leap before looking”. Sit is silence and be open to receive guidance from Creator and Great Mystery for your new journey. When the moon enters Aries she is guided by the Animal Totem Falcon, clear inspired vision, and Red Tailed Hawk, spiritual messenger.
I have not said much about the meeting of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius. Because I do not know yet what to say. But I like their messages in our story. Aquarius is the sign of the scientist, the inventor, the innovator, and the world of the metaphysical. It is the sign of the collective consciousness and Cosmic Consciousness. Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius (rules and regulations) and Jupiter is the Soul Centered ruler of Aquarius (expansion of spiritual consciousness). This meeting has not happened in Aquarius for hundreds of years and some are calling it the New Renaissance or the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. The planet who guides them is Uranus in Taurus, expect the unexpected as the Earth Moves into her next phase of Evolution. In Aquarius their Animal Totem guide for the Northern Hemisphere is Otter, curiosity, companionship, and joyful sharing. For the Southern Hemisphere it is Salmon, courage and determination to create the new. Uranus in Taurus is guided by Beaver, clearing the old and building the new (Northern Hemisphere) and Snake, shedding the old and rebirth (Southern Hemisphere). The New Way is the message.
The Clan Mother who guides us all for the Sun in Capricorn is Talks With Relations. She is the Guardian of nature and all her kingdoms. She is the Mother of the Planetary Family and teaches us to enter the Sacred Space of others with respect. She teaches us to learn the truth. For the Jupiter/Saturn cycle in Aquarius (the next 20 years) our guide is Wisdom Keeper, the mother of remembering our ancestors. She is the guardian of friendship. Planetary Unity, and mutual understanding. She teaches us how to honour the truth. For Uranus in Taurus we are guided by Listening Woman, the guardian of the Stillness and Inner Knowing. She teaches us how to hear the truth. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams) The key phrase for Aquarius is “I Know”.
We will be back with more insights next week about the Cancer Full Moon, Jupiter and Saturn, and the gifts 2021 is offering us.
Namaste and blessings to all at this Sacred Time,
