As an Astrologer I can’t let 12/21/12 go by without comment.
- First of all I am so glad I am not struggling through Mexico City traffic to help save the world. But I am glad some folks are. Who will ever know, whether or not, maybe we are still here going about our daily life because of the many prayers and meditations taking place around the world today. I thank them.
- Next and more importantly, I hope that this focus on this Winter Solstice for the whole world will have attuned we humans beings more closely to the cycles of nature, the stars, and themselves. Frustration, anger grow exponentially when we are out of sync with the seasons of the year and the seasons of our own life cycles.
- As a planet we have had a shared experience that wasn’t a disaster. So far it is 2pm pst. We all as a generation of people will probably have good stories about what we did or didn’t do on 12/21/12.
So as we move into what comes next pay attention to your heart while you set an intention for transformation of….fill in the blank.
The Sun is Conjunct the Galactic center
Here is planetary wisdom from of my teachers Stephanie@ecoastrology.com
December 12: Alignment of 12-12-12
December 13: New Moon 12:42 AM PST (22º Sagittarius); Uranus turns direct (5º Aries)
December 18: Sun conjunct Galactic Center (27º Sagittarius) and opposite Ceres (27º Gemini)
December 21: Solstice 3:12 AM PST; end of Mayan Long Count Calendar, end of 26,000 year cycle
December 11, 2012
This is a very intense week, and a very, very special time. The next new moon, this month, and this year mark a momentous turning point, the end of a 26,000-year cycle, known by many names: the Great Awakening, the Ascension, the Mayan End Times, the Hopi Fifth World, Christogenesis, Timewave Zero, and others. The number 12 symbolizes completion — the union of heaven and earth, sacred and secular. December 12, 2012 and December 21, 2012, the dates most often given for this evolutionary passage, do not mark the end of the world, but rather the initiation of a global shift, from living in duality and materialism to realizing our unity and divinity. The dates 12-12 and 12-21 mark the peak of two immense cosmic waves, which have been building for a long time, and whose wake will continue through the end of this year and beyond.
There is nothing to fear. Relax. Rest. Release. Receive. Remember.
Gifts From Nature
I went to the I Ching to discern what I should be focusing on for my Solstice Blog for you. I first got Connecting then that became Turning Point. Here is what it said.
Nature moves in a continuously unfolding cycle of seasons and there is no point at which its motion entirely stops. Nevertheless, we can sense a kind of pause that happens on the cusps of these cyclical changes. At the Winter solstice the period of rest and darkness reaches its zenith and the season of activity and light begin to return and the whole of nature holds its breath for a moment. A subtle shift takes place. TAO Oracle Ma Deva Pad
The gift we can look forward to is that “Still Point” 0 Capricorn which will occur at 9;30 pm PST December 21. No matter where you are or what your doing it will happen. Give yourself the gift of attending to that moment of shift however you please; anything from a rousing Welcome Yule to a silent prayer for peace or both. Participate in the tilt!
In early Roman times Solstice was celebrated as Saturnalia when Jupiter freed Saturn from his chains and wild partying followed and the roll of servant and lords were reversed. To me it seems as thought the laws of gravity are repealed for just a moment. After all Saturn is the ruler of all structures from our walls of our homes to our bones. What if they were unbound would we fall fall down or fly like angels of birds or Santa in his sleight? See where all these myths might come from. Something to think about but no to hard. Remember angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.

Christmas Eve is a New Moon a great time for setting intention regarding creating healthy future structure in your life.
Finally a Quick Look into The New Year
The Sun and Moon are squared in the chart for New Year’s Day which is quite interesting, because it often indicates what is coming the year to come, the much–storied and magically invoked year of 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar and the beginning of a new phase in the affairs of planet earth, at least by some accounts. Indeed this is a potent year that is a–dawning, as we can judge also by the culmination of the Uranus–Pluto square that would represent the quarter phase of that planetary relationship – birthed in the sixties and with many past revolutionary cycles to the list of its historical appearances, including the time of the French Revolution, when these planets were opposed. And indeed a new revolution for our times has been brewing lately, one that has been getting more and more intense as the years leading up to 2012 have rolled by. Henry Seltzer astrologer
