|So here we are, we’ve made it to the week of this historical planetary event! In the spirit of the Aquarian theme of collaboration, I thought I’d team up with my friend Kiki Dombrowski to add a little extra to this week’s special horoscopes. There is so much info out there about the astronomy and astrology of it. I hope you’ll take the time to look up and bask in the light of this amazing conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on Monday the 21st. Yes, Jupiter and Saturn meet up every 20 years, yes we have a solstice every year, yes Jupiter and Saturn move through Aquarius every 12 and 29 ½ years respectively. But to have this powerful conjunction happen right on the solstice, after such an extraordinary year is something else!
And the added bonus is that it’s the end of a 200 year cycle where we move from earth to air energy!! It really does represent a time for revolutionary change. We’ve seen it all year as Saturn bopped in and out of Aquarius from March to July. The difference is this time it’s going to stay in this sign until 2023. Expect the unexpected as Aquarius’ ruling planet is the great awakener, Uranus. I created a video to help you understand what this will feel like, what the theme will be for each of the signs for the next few years (don’t forget to listen to your rising sign too!). In it, I explain what the 200 year cycle is all about and more. It’s here: www.astrogirl12.com
But what will this week bring and what can you do? Definitely take this time to write out your own declaration of independence! What are you going to create to help you free up your time and talents to be expressed. What do you want to see happen in your life and what first steps can you take to harness the power you have to allow all the good you deserve to rush into your life? Where can you take positive, powerful steps to free yourself from your own limitations? Putting all of this in writing will help you tap into the flow of this electrical charge and zap you out of unhealthy habits.
Kiki www.kikidombrowski.com has some lovely ideas for tapping into this powerful solstice. Here’s what she has to say about it in general, then read each sign for a special message:
The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year, and while that means we experience the longest winter’s night, the day celebrates hope as light fills us with hope and days grow longer as the seasons progress. This is an excellent time of the year to remain comfortable and rested in your home, cozy with friends and loved ones, surrounded by images of growth and rebirth (such as hearth fires and evergreens). Magically it is a time to conjure peace, healing, forgiveness, and new beginnings — how truly appropriate with the powerful shift Jupiter and Saturn are making into Aquarius.”
Big loves to all of you -have a very Merry Christmas!
Aries (March 21-April 20) You face a turning point at work when a power play throws you for a loop. Step back briefly and keep your perspective on it. It may be time to move on and this was just the push you needed to do it. But if you’re not ready to pack your desk up, you’ll have to get pretty creative to get this to work in your favor. Kiki adds: anoint a piece of jade crystal with a drop of patchouli oil. In your mind’s eye envision yourself at your dream job feeling comfortable, understood, and successful. As a fun exercise, write a recommendation letter to yourself as a way to see all that you have achieved in your career so far.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) A major decision requires input from family and a lot of research so let others help. You’ve been on the fence and while you know you’re going to make a big move or take the next step in your career, there are still a lot of details to attend to. So rally the troops, get all the info and look forward to 2021 being a very, very exciting time. Kiki adds: Give yourself the gift of a spiritually themed datebook/journal. Take time this week to write out goals, wishes, and intentions for the upcoming year. Make logistical plans and hold yourself to deadlines — see if you can sync those up to astrologically powerful days and full moons.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) The holidays bring an opportunity to talk about “the elephant in the room” with in laws or a close friend. Once you realize what this person’s true motive is for behaving as they do, it will be much easier to extend the olive branch and you’ll never worry about it again. Enjoy as much socializing as you can do safely. There are loads of people who will want to spend time with you this week. Kiki adds: spend time (safely) with loved ones this holiday season, giving each other the opportunity to talk about what they are thankful for in 2020 and hopeful for in 2021. After a long day of socializing with others, take a Epsom salt bath with cedarwood and rosemary essential oils.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you’re in a new relationship, this could be a big turning point so really check in to see if this is a person you want to spend more time with. They may be hinting about forming a deeper bond or even a life partnership! Your need for freedom may override any gestures of love whether single or attached so if you’re not ready for commitment, be honest. Finances are a sticking point with partners. By week’s end you’ll have that piece sorted out though. Kiki adds: there are many books available that list hundreds of intimate and fun questions to ask your partner to deepen your connection. This is a great stocking stuffer idea for you, Cancer. The Druids believed mistletoe was a sacred herb with protective and healing powers – hang a piece in your house to bring those magical vibes into your life.
Leo (July 23-August 22) If you don’t need to be on call for work, let it go. Your expertise is needed at the office, but don’t let it interrupt special time with family and friends if you don’t have to. Single Leos may find the love of your life in your circle of friends. You never saw it coming, but it’s so obvious now. Bring out that Leo playfulness in all you do — whether single or partnered — and enjoy the wonder of the holiday from a child’s perspective. Kiki adds: think about something you like to do in your house. Maybe it’s baking holiday cookies, decorating for the winter solstice, making DIY gifts, or curling up under three layers of fuzzy blankets and napping. I challenge you to turn off your phone and computer and tend to those soul-nourishing activities.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) With the Sun and Uranus complimenting your sign (all in trine), you’ll be ready to start a new exercise or healthy eating plan as soon as the holidays are over! All the energy is in your favor now to make this work. Even if you’re a super healthy person, you may find something way less restrictive feeling so you can enjoy treating your body with the utmost respect. Unexpected vents at work won’t shake you, just let things play out before trying to “fix” anything. Kiki adds: Sip on a mocktail of ginger ale, cranberry juice, and orange juice as you browse for healthy recipes that can start creating after the holidays are over. At the solstice perform yogic sun salutations to welcome the healing warmth of the sun in your life.
Libra (September 23-October 22) Your calm approach to the holiday crazies helps you keep others from coming unhinged. You’re creatively on fire now with new approaches to old problems and ideas for a bright future. Finances are a bit tricky so keep your budget with gifts, etc. If you have a talent, make as much as you can — personally crafted gifts hold so much more meaning. Not artistic? You’ll still be able to find super unique gifts for everyone on your list. Kiki adds: This year see if you can find a holiday ornament that best represents the personality of the person receiving it. Better yet, add a personalized holiday card and a photo of the two of you to make an extra personal connection.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Face it, this Christmas is going to be different no matter what. Scorpios love to keep strong traditions alive and prefer to stay close to family/close ties this time of year so the changes necessary to celebrate in 2020 may be stressful to some Scorpios. But it’s all different now with virtual connections being the way we do things now. So just let it go and do the best you can to stay connected with your loved ones. Don’t think of it as tossing away your old traditions, look forward to returning to them next year. Kiki adds: this is a great time to schedule a watch party with friends and family to watch your most beloved holiday movies together. Or, have a virtual karaoke session and sing carols together (cue Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas.”)
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Hey big spender! It’s ok. Yes, I’m telling Sag it’s okay to bust the budget a bit. Not toooo much though! Your usual Jupiter luck comes just in time for the holidays as you nail some awesome sales or find a local store that becomes your one-stop-shop. You’re full of out of this world ideas and looking forward to taking a class or moving up in your job. The coming year brings a ton of learning and even teaching. Plenty to celebrate now — some Sag’s may even be courting a new love interest — so don’t hold back. Kiki adds: while we cannot all be attending the sunrise of the Winter Solstice at sacred sites around the world, the sky offers a magical glimpse into the universe. Take the opportunity to head out in nature and admire the stars along with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, this wintery week.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) The Sun in your sign shines a light on your appearance and you may just decide to take on a new look for the holidays! Something that reflects the more eclectic side of your personality. Yes, Caps do have an inner weirdo. Do something that shows the world you’re a force to be reckoned with. After the last few years of heavy Saturnian energy weighing you down, it’s time to let loose! Keep the conversations light and festive. You deserve it. Kiki adds: honor your inner quirky side to allow for the mood to remain pleasant and easy. This may mean wearing an ugly Christmas sweater (extra points if you have a matching one for your pet), decorating a ginger bread house, or reading a book that makes you laugh.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) It’s been a long time coming, but this is going to be your year Aquarius. You’ll feel the shift most of all. If you’ve been skirting around the edges of responsibility (or the opposite — staying in situations that are too oppressive), you’ll buckle down now and finally make a decision to lock into a direction that makes sense in every aspect of your life. I believe they call that surrendering to win — when you finally give in to what you know is best for you even if it means making a dramatic change. You’ll see. Kiki adds: one of the greatest themes of the Winter Solstice is the theme of rebirth. This time of year is an excellent time to make an assessment of what a “new you” would look like, feel like, and be doing. If you’re an extra dramatic Aquarius, act the new you out — believe it and make it so.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Keep your energy bubble strong around you as you finish up shopping and preparations for the holiday. You’ll be having a lot of those moments of clarity as you navigate through family dynamics. You’ll have an opportunity to provide some much needed assistance to an older woman who has a hard time asking for help. This will make your heart soar and keep you in the spirt of the season. Kiki adds: you may be familiar with Frankincense and Myrrh as being gifts alongside gold given to Christ at his birth. You can honor the protective, healing, and purifying powers of Frankincense and Myrrh by burning the resins as an incense
