The Solstice Dance

Happy mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. This is a time to celebrate, appreciate and feel gratitude for the blessings in life. Let's count them! Fuel our goals, aspirations and desires by honoring the connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Make this whole week a an inner, and outer celebration.

Think of the Solstice Dance as a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings. With the New Moon, Mercury and Chiron closely connected to the o degree Cancer sun (the solstice point), our intentions can magnify. If you focus this energy, there's nothing that can not be accomplished.

Technical Notes

In Astrology, two major things happen at the solstice.

1) the Sun is crosses the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. What? The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

2) the sun crosses triggers the Draconic Nodes, releasing energy to move you along your path (especially if you know what that path is!).

If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts this week, up to and through the New Moon in Cancer, for maximum results.
