Capricorn energy. Siberian Charcoal drawing by Napoleon Brousseau 

Capricorn energy starts December 21st @ 2:23 pm PST/ 5:23 pm EST/ 10:23 pm GMT as Sun enters Capricorn. The Sun sits directly over the Tropic of Capricorn on this day. This is what Tropical western astrology is all about.

Its Capricorn time/ The Devil #15 in the Tarot is here. Capricorn is Feminine earth. Ruled by the ringed planet Saturn. 

The Winter solstice/YULE to Pagans is the shortest day of light in the Northern Hemisphere and the longest day in the Southern Hemisphere where summer begins.

This important cardinal event marks the beginning of one of the 4 seasons a major Gateway in the year. Our ancestors celebrated the death and rebirth of the Light from before the beginning of recorded time.

December 21 is the longest night of 2018 this is the most feminine night. The dark is the realm of the Goddess. Spend December 21 communing with the Goddess with the void directly, with the wise Chrone, with the death bringer Goddesses. The goddess is eternal and her husband/ liver/son is reborn through her labor’s on this night. Christians Annexed these ancient pagan ways into the myth of Christmas. The birth of the Sun/son a pun and is what Jesus supposed birth is based on. Happy return of the light after the sun appear to standstill for 3-days on the solstice which is what the word means Celebrate the transition from the feminine to the masculine half of the year.

This year energy is very busy. Coming right after the SUN URANUS trine- bright chaos- the stock market in the US sunk in one of its biggest sell-off days since the depression.The Dow Jones index closed below 23,000 for the first time since October 2017. 

The SOLSTICE astrology chart can be used as forecast chart for the next 3 months until Spring 2019.

The Moon is in GEMINI all day indicating a rapidly changing dialogue and mutable energies. The Moon is very quick-witted and busy today.

Moon opposes Mercury and Jupiter in Sagittarius in the wee hours 

Feelings, thinking and inspiration are opposed. 

Moon inconjuncts both Saturn in Capricorn and Venus in Scorpio 

The Moon is always the mood of the people and this can indicate money woes and restrictions. Venus in Scorpio is finance and Saturn in Capricorn is seniors, senators and higher-ups in corporate and government.

Moon squares Neptune in PISCES

Mercantile markets will continue to fall because of oil prices. Gemini rules marketing and merchandise and Neptune rules oil and delusions and debt. Watch out.


This is an upbeat romantic idealistic energy at its best. Neptune ins the Higher Octave of Venus. It’s Very spiritual and compassionate. You can fall in love with love easily today. 

This is the best day of the year for Acting artists creative types to put their work out there under the Venus Neptune trine.

Venus in Scorpio is money, secret money, power money, death and rebirth, sex, power and secrets. Sexual predators will continue to be unveiled, also drug deals big Pharma and any big financial shenanigans being opened up.

Use this energy to do a lot of meditation, creative channeling and positive intentions setting for yourself and in 2019. Be careful of maintaining boundaries.


This is another super-powered aspect. ANTARES, the rival of Mars is also Angel URIEL the DIVINE PROTECTOR. Speak your truth, aim higher, fight for justice, make your words inspire others Teach what you know. This is the perfect balance to the High romance energy. Mercury leaves its retrograde shadow period today as well.

SUN enters CAPRICORN at times above and we are grounded at the foot of the mountain. Sure-footed, little kids, prancing.

Gemini moon incojuncts PLUTO in Capricorn in the latter part of the day

Political disagreements are big. People will bait and switch dont get dragged into it and ruin the holiday spirit.

Moon squares Mars in PISCES in PST/ DEC> 22 in EST and GMT

Your dreams may be action-packed under water. Aggressive drunks. Be careful of imbibing too much as Mars in Pisces just wants to ease the pain with addictions.

Full Moon at 0 Cancer Dec. 22 I’ll write about that soon. I am behind in my schedules.

Got to get all my 2019 predictions out and some writing deadlines.

blessings to you.
