Spring Equinox 2021
Today is the first day of Spring, March 20, ’21. Nature points to the notion that it is a new beginning. The feeling is one of youth, enthusiasm, a desire to act.
Let’s all make a great new start today.
Winter Solstice 2020
Winter begins today, the 21st of Dec. Today, the shortest day of the year means that light is diminished. This is why we have celebrations of light to make up for this at this time of year. Earth life for us is always a combo of celestial influences and our own behavior. So here is an example of us both at work. As the Sun goes into Winter sign, Capricorn, the Moon moves into Spring sign, Aries. Maybe a little more life will come into our Winter. On this same day, Jupiter comes to Saturn in a very close conjunction. This is like good coming to difficulty.
Fall Equinox 2020
Fall begins on the Sept. 22nd. The nights become longer and the days shorter. Darkness wins. As the Sun moves into cardinal sign, Libra it starts to relate tensely with other cardinal bodies, like Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars. To get some good out of this, we should be positive in thought, word, and deed. This can bring a happy Fall.
Summer Solstice 2020
This year the Sun enters Cancer on the 20th and is followed by a new moon solar eclipse on the 21st. This is all about feeling, home, family, country and a new start. This is also the longest day of the year and we celebrate the light conquering the darkness. Let’s find something special to do that gives us a spiritual lift this weekend.
Spring Equinox 2020
Late on the 19th of March, we celebrate the first day of glorious spring. Let’s use this energy to maintain an active and healthy life style. Here is an opportunity to mimic nature and achieve a youthful attitude. Let’s forge ahead with positive activity and make a special new start on the 24th with the new moon.
Winter Solstice 2019,
Today we note the solstice, the day of the year when there is the least light. The symbolism of this is that goodness and happiness need a little help. This is what light festivals are all about. This day happens when the Sun goes to Capricorn; the sign of looking up, and of setting and achieving goals. So, let’s look up to wonderful things and people, set reasonable goals, and promote and share happiness.
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwansaa, and Happy Yule!
Fall Equinox ’19
Today is one of our important markers that happen throughout the year. It is the Fall Equinox, the day when day and night are the same number or hours, or equal. We take meaning from these markers and say that dark and light are equal. A great many paired opposites could be said to be equal at this time. The Sun enters Libra at this time, and the meaning of the day is like the meaning of the sign. In Libra we have the scales which compare things and note equity or the lack of it. Libra is a legal sign and both Libra and the legal world want fairness and equity. Let’s honor fairness and justice.
Summer Solstice ’19
The Sun goes into the sign, Cancer on June 21st. This marks the longest day of the year. The period of light is longer than the period of dark. We celebrate this.
Spring Equinox ’19
Today is the first day of spring. This is the start of the astrological year. It is nice to find some new activity to begin that relates to life and happiness and honors the qualities of spring.
We have many new starts during the year. We have Jan. 1st, the beginning of the year. The Sun is in the goal sign, Capricorn, thus, the resolutions. Then we have our birthdays, which are a new personal start for ourselves. Each month, the Moon returns to it’s sign in our birth chart. This is a new start in our every day lives. When Mercury returns to the same place as in the birth chart, we have a new start in our mental lives. All of the planets make these returns to birth chart position except for Pluto and Neptune which move too slowly for us to live to see it. When Venus returns, we have a new start in our social and love lives. For Mars we have a new start in action. A new exercise program is a great thing to do. For Jupiter we might rethink our philosophy. For Saturn, a new long term goal is appropriate. And for Uranus, which does this at age 84, seek a new interest. These are things we can look at and act on when we know where the planets are in our charts.
