Holiday greetings dear readers!
Man, there are some cosmic titans influencing us right now. Have you had an unusually stressful, clunky or perfectly-in-flow week? Depending on your birth chart, there are some playful and powerful planetary movements happening.
Did I mention it’s also the winter solstice?
For those of you with the winter blues, this is when the hours of daylight, ever so slightly, begin to expand again.
Did I also mention that Monday, December 21st, will be the FIRST time since the year 1226 that Saturn and Jupiter (the biggest planets in our solar system) will orbit so close to one another? Like, super close.
So what does this all mean?
A planetary conjunction of such magnitude on the winter solstice certainly has some big energetic implications. Oh yeah, it’s also the first day of winter!
If you’re looking for a beautiful way to usher in this time, here is a great resource with some ideas for ceremony. Ceremony is one of my absolute favorite ways to work with big energy and can serve as a touchstone when things feel a little crazy.
On simpler terms, you can view this time as a true rebirth. If you’re dedicated to this concept, it requires some deep reflection on what’s come to pass, releasing patterns that aren’t serving you, and thinking more specifically (avoid broad generalizations) about what you’d really love to see in your life.
You have so much to be thankful for, too.
So, the cards.
A dear sister-friend recently gifted a brilliant and fun oracle deck for my birthday (there’s that 12/26 number again!) and I’d love to use it today.
There’s a lot going on right now, so I’d like very much to keep things light, and usher in the rest of 2020 with some playful energy. Enter: The Music Oracle.
This is a playful deck with simple messages.
If it calls to you, dig into some articles that explain the history and current happenings in our cosmos, and our calendar year. The egg nog and lights version of our year is quite new, and not terribly connected to its original meaning.
Enjoy these messages and have a beautiful holiday season, however you’re choosing to show up.
