Winter officially begins on Thursday December 21, 2017. The
winter solstice represents the birth of the sun - both universally and
personally. The rising sun on the winter solstice, out of the darkest
day of the year, echoes the birth of light from the dark void on the
first day of creation.
The ancient Egyptians understood this connection between creation and
the winter solstice as they aligned the Karnac Temple Complex to the
rising sun of the winter solstice. This complex was never completed, as
successive Pharaohs kept making additions to it as a living example of
the process of creation. These additions were built according to the
famous Fibonocci sequence (mathematical sequence) found in growth and
expansion of life.
The birth of the sun as the light of the first day also represents the
birth of our own spiritual light. The physical sun brings light to the
world, the spiritual sun gives spiritual life to the individual.

day of the winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, meaning we
experience the least amount of sun light. It is also a time the sun
reaches its southernmost point in the sky .

albeit the earth still does retain some of its heat from summer and
There is an interesting alignment on December 21st in terms of Saturn
and the sun. The sun is going to move into the astrological sign of
Capricorn, and as a result, the sun and Saturn will line up. The last
time the sun and Saturn aligned was in 1664.
What it Means:
Saturn is a planet that depicts the qualities of personal awareness and
experience. It represents the finite limit to our own perceptions,
capabilities and life. Since Saturn is slow moving, taking 29 to 30
years to orbit the sun, it is associated with old age, low energy, and
overall lack of ability to move forward.
Saturn has natural rulership over places and conditions that are cold,
dark and oppressive. Hard physical labor is the cornerstone to this
planet's energy. With that being said, try not to start anything new on
Thursday, as it will take you three times as long to complete the task.
You may feel tired, limited and constrained from this alignment.
The Element of Water Peaking Through the Rat Branch:
Water has a tendency to move fast or be still. Active or yang water
pushes forward relentlessly and fearsome to reckon with. Gentle water,
on the other hand, is like the dew that nurtures and seeps into the soil
of the earth.
Communicating and advancing your ideas by influencing others is a
powerful sign water is in motion. Other people's mind becomes the vessel
to help carry creative ideas into positive action. Tune in, as this
water energy has a way to accurately gauge future potentials.
Persistence is the cornerstone behind reaching your intended goals this
month by propelling instead of compelling others into motion.
The Rat branch falls on the 24 mountain template North second mountain
with peak of the winter solstice. It is the self-proclaimed acquisitor.
It is a yang stem or male energy that is resourceful and practical.
Taking a forthright and inquisitive approach to matters for the rest of
this month, into early January, is the best way to act on this energy,
especially when it comes to your career and life goals.
Taking time to cherish friends and family is also inherent to the Rat's
personality. That should be easy since we are in the holiday season of
light and joy. Just be careful of gossip and criticism, as the Rat loves
to engage in this type of behavior.
