In the Northern hemisphere, the Winter Solstice is the shortest day and longest night. I was recently asked, “Is there anything good about the Winter Solstice?” My answer was a resounding, “Yes!”
Although this is the shortest day of the year, this means there is the least amount of daylight. But, now, the days are getting longer. Each day the amount of daylight increases by about two minutes. The Winter Solstice is considered to astronomical New Year. Couple this with the fact that we have a New Moon in Capricorn on Friday, December 23rd and the energy right now is a great time to set your New Year’s Resolutions.
New Moons are always a great time to set goals and intentions. This New Moon is in the sign of Capricorn, which is ruled by the planet Saturn. Saturn is a very methodical, logical, and ritualistic. Thus making it a perfect time for you to be planning your resolutions as well as begin preparing your taxes. But I digress.
Happy Winter Solstice to my fellow Northern Hemisphere people. (In the Southern Hemisphere it’s the Summer Solstice)!
Thank you for taking the time to ready this. Happy Holidays to everyone regardless of the holiday you are celebrating!
