Solstice. The word means Sol=Sun, stands still. The Sun appears to rise and set at the same location on the horizon for three days. It really should be spelled SOULSTICE. It is an ancient wiccan/ pagan/Germanic tradition called YULE. Al indigenous peoples celebrated in the participation of the turning of the wheel of time. It is the REBIRTH of the LIGHT, in the northern hemisphere. The Christian religion couldn’t eradicate the ancient practice, so they made this into the day of Jesus’s birth -Christmas. This time also marks the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia.
The two major solstices of the year are extremely powerful times to download new DNA encodings and contemplate new beginnings for the next 6 months. This is the real New Year to celebrate.
The second 2014 solstice IS LIKE- YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET
A POWER PACKED CARDINAL CRISIS ACTIVATED SOLSTICE
Its just a few days after the 6th exact Uranus Pluto square. We are already walking on broken glass and shattered dreams.
There is a NEW MOON to further hammer home the new beginnings motif.
The preview, the day before Solstice is a new nuance in the ongoing GRAND CARDINAL CROSSROADS saga.
VENUS, enters the CARDINAL CROSSROADS
VENUS, the beautiful planet of women, love, wealth, beauty, relationships and balance is in Capricorn at 14+ degrees and SQUARING URANUS which may be just as painful as it sounds. She is also conjunct to PLUTO at 12+ degrees of the practical sign of reality, wealth, power and corporate structures.
WOMEN will lead the revolution! They are ready to take back their power in the world and confront old PATRIARCHAL- Plutocratic platforms which rule every single aspect of our world- religion, culture, beauty and take them down to build a new world in the upcoming revolution.
WHAM BAM THANK YOU Ma’am.
Venus rules $$$$ Bling and PLuto is the SUPER BIG BUCKS, The Koch brothers, Federal reserve, etc. The two planets are opposite the U.S. Natal SUN and also square to its natal Saturn at 15 degrees of LIBRA- you know what that means-KARMA, laws, justice, balance. Venus rules Libra BTW. I would expect another major financial crisis to hit the fan or to start an avalanche.
Mars is also sextiling Uranus from Aquarius,they are in mutual reception. Mars is in Uranus’s home sign and Uranus is in Mars’s home sign. This further puts the speed to: LIQUEFY.
URANUS U-TURN @ 2:45 pm PST/5:45 pm EST
URANUS turns DIRECT in motion after being RETROGRADE since July 21. Planets are always at their most powerful as they station to change direction. Can you hear the screeching?
URANUS rules protests, liberation, revolution, freedom, chaos, Hi- tech inventions and there have been protests the likes of which we haven’t seen since the 60’s over Ferguson and the Staten Island killing of a black man negligently by police who weren’t indited for murder. The revolution is just going to get bigger with Uranus moving direct. I am so happy about this.
WINTER SOLSTICE is at 3:03 pm PST/ 6:03 pm EST/ 11:03 pm GMT
The Winter Solstice occurs during a Void of course Moon, since 4:35 am EST.
As with all Void Moons, it is a very spiritual time, a good time to do mundane things.
The Moon enters earthy, patient, practical, mature Capricorn at 5:25 pm PST/8:25 pm EST.
The NEW MOON occurs ten minutes later at 5:35 pm PST/8:35 pm EST/ December 22 at 1:35 am GMT at Zero degrees 6 minutes..
Of course all Aries, and Capricorns with planets at the middles degrees are getting personally affected by these energies. Also those born on the first few days of all of the Cardinal Signs- ARIES and LIBRA.
SCORPIO born at the very last days are also feeling much pressure as are all LATE FIXED SIGNS- TAURUS, LEO, AQUARIUS too.
GEMINI is getting quincunxed from early to mid degrees by the Capricorn energies.
LEO’s born August 13-17 are also feeling hard hit with Jupiter’s Retrograde as are AQUARIANS born Feb 13-17. Leo is also Qunicunx to Venus and Opposite Mars. You Lions may be feeling it financially, in the heart and of course the chaos.
SAGITTARIUS your time is coming up soon. Neptune is on your case anyway plus Chiron.
VIRGO – take a break for now. Can you? EARLY VIRGO get Saturn rapping your hard working knuckles soon.
THE NODES of the Moon are squaring Venus and Pluto and the South Node is conjunct Uranus.
Uranus/South Node to Venus, women and power, PLuto is a a huge green light signal to jettison the past. All the old scripts, the religious make belief stories about Eve, which define women as lesser than man, as his subordinate, chattel, just sexual orifices for male satisfaction, objects, feared and scorned will be shredded.
Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn is at the very last “critical degree” of Scorpio, also indicating an end to a sex and money cycle about misuse of power, secrets,control, manipulation, the psyche, the shadow. Saturn in Scorpio is dealing with all the sexual fear, and unconscious emotions which govern us until we become conscious which is Uranus’ role. The Uranus Pluto squares are to make us humans with real higher consciousness of ourselves each other and our world. We have been acting mainly unconsciously.
THE ASTRO-CARTOGRAPHY MAP of the world shows where the Solstice HOT SPOTS triggers are most powerful.
The “planets” and what they symbolize will show their powers on the spots they touch.
THE SUN and the Moon are North/South straight through South Africa on the West side going through Namibia,Central Africa, Niger and Western Libya near Tripoli. Continuing North through Venice Italy, near Zurich, Prague,and North through OSLO Norway. Nobel Peace prize ruckus anyone?
The Sun Descends through Fairbanks Alaska, right through the ALBERTA TAR SANDS and Fort McMurray. I predict there will be major protests here against the Tar Sands and with the Canadian government. This Continues near Edmonton Alberta,the Sun cuts a swathe south through America exiting at NEW ORLEANS. I feel there is a serious earth shake up coming to this entire Mississippi area. The Sun setting on the Tar sands indicates it is calling it quits time and moving to SOLAR power.
Sun descends through CANCUN Mexico, through ECUADOR, BOLIVIA and PARAGUAY the new conscious and politically aware,fastest growing economies in South America relatively and the Sun’s path travels near Montevideo and finally exits at Mar Del Plata in Argentina.

Travels North to Fort Good Hope up in the Far Northern Territories of Canada, Land which will be challenged as to ownership as the arctic ice melts. They travel through Finland, Belarus, Romania and Bulgaria.
PLUTO VENUS and the North Node cross at Bontang Malaysia.
Jupiter and Pluto cross near Yellowknife.Venus Mercury Mars the Moon and Pluto are all applying pressure to the oil and mineral rich territory of the northern parts of British Columbia. Saturn is sitting on VALDEZ ALASKA, OIL SPILL ANYONE?
