The winter solstice carries deep meaning in all earth based spirituality. It is a celebration of the return of the light, but, at the same time, the darkness around the winter solstice naturally brings an energy of stillness and introspection, urging us to turn inward away from the world. The winter solstice holds the tension of both life and death, and is associated with rebirth; the dying old the old and the making way for the new. With 2017 being a year of beginnings, we have all been reborn in some way, making the winter solstice an important time to pause our busy life and honor and embrace where we are at this moment. In the quiet, we are more aware of our dreams and visions, and create a space for answers to come to us.
This year, the sun in Capricorn will be accompanied by the heavens strict teacher, Saturn, for the first time in (give or take) 30 years, emphasizing the energy of transitions and new beginnings that surrounds us at this time. Rigorous Saturn teaches us boundaries and responsibility and hand us the hard work and life lessons that helps us to attain a much deeper understanding of ourselves gives our soul a quantum leap of growth.
For all who have natal planets or important astrological points in Sagittarius, these past three years with the strict teacher transiting Sagittarius, some potent life lessons may have been given, and you may be happy to see Saturn leave for the next three decades. For all of you with important aspects in Capricorn; you’re up for a ride the next couple of years, hold on!
No matter where you find yourself at the longest night of the year, take this time to do some personal inventory. Knowing our true self makes the ride some much smoother. What in you, is dying? What in you, is being born? Change only hurt when we fight it, so breathe in the courage to step forward in your life with curiosity and an open heart, rather than resistance. Surrender the past, let go of all that no longer serves, and embrace the current season of your life.
YogAstrology®; New Year, New You, is a 2h vinyasa based class where the principles of astrology and the energies of the season is connected to the divinity that is your body.
The darkness of the winter months are the best time for introspection, and there is no better time than the end of a year to tune in and do our personal inventory. What works, and what doesn’t? What has the time come to let go of and what is your heart ready to pursue in the coming year? Through movement, flow, meditation and journaling we will find the answers to these questions, and the practice will leave you feeling revigorated and ready to move into the new year with a clean inner space and clear intentions.
