“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” Oprah Winfrey
Sun enters Capricorn (4:48 pm) – This ingress also marks the Winter Solstice point in the Northern Hemisphere – the shortest day of the year with the longest night of the year. After this date, there will be a ‘return of the light’ as the days will grow longer, the nights shorter, the Sun symbolically marking a rebirth from death or darkness. Likewise, it can be a time when we may become clearer or more illuminated with respect to what we would like to birth or manifest in the new year, as well as what we may need to release.
Saturn-ruled Capricorn, represented by the mountain goat, symbolizes the slow but steady ascent to the top. The Sun in Capricorn teaches us the power of patience, focus, self-discipline, and experience.
Interestingly enough, shortly after the Sun enters Capricorn today it will also form a square to expansive Jupiter, newly installed in the irrepressible sign of Aries the Ram (7:50 pm); this pairing between the two largest bodies in our solar system could be a bit tricky for us to navigate as Jupiter tends to implore us to ‘go big’ or pull out all the stops, while the Sun in cautious Cappie is an advocate for more restraint.
While it may be very possible for us to reach new heights now, there is also the possibility that we find that there is a hefty price for us to pay later if we try to do too much or overburden our resources. Kind of like the proverbial scenario of overeating at the buffet bar only to discover afterwards that we no longer can fit into our britches. Jupiter can be the planet of luck and prosperity, but it also can be the cosmic indicator of excess. The prudent Sun in Capricorn suggests – when in doubt – ‘going small’ or moderating our impulses may be the wisest strategy that saves the day for us and allows us to shine our light ‘in all its glory’ over the long-term.

On This Day in History – Apollo 8 went into space: the 1st manned Moon voyage launched with astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and William Anders.
Astrologically, on that day, Jupiter and Uranus were closely conjunct (less than one degree apart) in the sign of Libra, with Libra’s ruler, Venus, deposited in innovative Aquarius. Jupiter represents long distance travel and Uranus governs technology and aviation (and also rules Aquarius). Often when these two are paired we experience sudden opportunities and a broadening of our horizons. This aspect is also associated with elements of genius. Also, consciousness downloads.
“And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you – all of you on the good Earth.” — Frank Borman
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
