There are a lot of aspects this week along with the Winter Solstice, Venus changing signs from Capricorn to Aquarius and the eclipse happening the day after Christmas. When things get this complex, there is a great synthesis being called for. Be present to the things that are asking to be acknowledged in your consciousness. The lifting of the veil of denial and the great shift of the old hierarchy are in full swing. Perhaps we can remember the wisdom of the child, who knows how to surrender to the flow so much they find the joy of the freedom of almost being thrown out of the swing.
How we do integrity is deepening to a core level we may not yet understand. Trust. Trust that when we do the work to look at what scares us, the promise is absolute transformation. Transformation is inherent to the mind of the Divine, as it is ever present in all that we see around us. Becoming masters of this dimension includes allowing this truth to permeate us to our cores.
Mars sextile Saturn and then Pluto this weekend gives us stamina and courage to embrace this. Mercury square Neptune releases, if we choose, philosophy that is in contradiction to our deepest compassionate hearts. Seeing through others’ attempts to deceive us arises from a place of intuition. Sometimes being right is less important than being kind. Being the teacher means seeing ourselves in everyone around us and leading by example.
Venus enters Aquarius Thursday/Friday- with a sextile to Chiron and a square to Uranus. Venus in Aquarius wants to channel her own brilliance, to welcome in gracefully new and far out ideas. To share them in elevated conversations with friends. To confidently take her time alone to experience her own uniqueness. She may grace us with some healthy detachment from relationships that have felt very heavy or intense over the past two weeks. Let her celestial consciousness stream in. Keep your compassionate heart and observe what foundations are in need of shifting.
Wounds that have been long open regarding how we get to show up in the world may be cauterized this week by taking a more objective view that leads to understanding. Uranus offers an awakening to a new sense of self-worth that comes when we bravely choose to live in alignment with our values regardless of others’ opinions. When we take time to care for our bodies and personal needs, we are better able to show up for those we love.
Sun squares Chiron on the 23rd and trines Uranus on the 24th. Sometimes who we were- in the past or to other people, is not who we are becoming. Make room and embrace the confidence to rise into your higher self. We are collectively transforming the very core of our societal values and structures right now, any single person who stands for their personal truth with integrity is a beacon of light.
The total Solar Eclipse taking place the day after Christmas is ready to release the old guard. But this inherently means the new council is being called in. And this may mean we feel more inspired and required to be a part of the change we wish to see in the world. While seeming grand, this kind of transformation must begin at the core, and that is in the most personal of spaces- the home, hearth and belly. Follow what inspires you, what gives you a sense of hopefulness.
The North Node in cancer says- it may be the mothers and children, the people of the Earth who we turn to for meaning and value in our world right now. And their importance cannot be underestimated. It is the beliefs and behaviors we feed in our homes and families that form the roots of culture that rise to branch and becomes policy and council. It’s time to look at how when we transform our culture from the roots- the home and family, we transform the world. And what a better time to embrace this than during the holiday season.
