Happy Winter Solstice?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, December 21, 2017

Someone recently wrote, “Happy Winter Solstice!”

Winter Solstice occurs every December 21st, and is also known as Yule, Midwinter, the Shortest Day, and Longest Night of the year, and occurs this year (2017) at 11:28 AM ET (10:28 AM CST) Thursday.

I’m not so sure it’s a “happy” event, per se, in as much as it is the deepest, darkest, night of the year.

“Saturn in Capricorn is a very useful placement, denoting one tough individual, but on a macro level, it doesn’t promise much in the way of fruitful change.”

However… that being “said,” it ~does~ mark the end of one timeframe, and establishes a point of a “new beginning.” And that is cause for hope, or rejoicing.

Noiseweek magazine had this to say about it: “If you don’t have access to a Yule log but are still interested in protecting yourself during the solstice, approximate the ritual with a candle (preferably marked with runes) and allow yourself some low-key, restorative indulgences, like working from home, moisturizing, eating some citrus, journaling or hibernating as best you can.”

Perhaps just staying inside, nekkid, and drinking spirituous libations all day will suffice, eh?😂🤔😜😳🤣😎

One astrologer, Neil Spencer, who writes for The (London) Observer, says this year’s solstice is particularly foreboding because of planetary alignment which hasn’t occurred since 1664 – the sun will pass in front of the constellation Capricorn hours after Saturn does also, which will cause both planets to line up for the first time time since 1664 – and for that reason, he says, folks ought practice double caution about starting new endeavors on that day.

Which is a good thing… if one is prone to being nekkid inside and drinking, anyway.🤣🤪
