New Moon in Capricorn ♑

 

 

On Christmas Eve there is a New Moon in Capricorn ♑ (at 1:06p EST). The New Moon is the phase of the cycle when a seed is sown. And during this time of year, around the Winter Solstice, it is the deepest, darkest, and most fertile time within. One might find oneself designing new aspirations and visualizing new beginnings.

Winter Solstice

 

 

Today is the Winter Solstice when the Sun descends to its lowest position in the sky of the whole year, into Capricorn.

I am going to try to allow more stillness into my experience over these 3 special days.
