Astrology - Risa D'Angeles

Esoteric astrology as news for the week of Dec. 21 through Dec. 27:

Winter solstice. Return of the light. Return of the sun. End of darkness. Our hearts, our inner sun, vivifying, coming alive again. Solstice (Yule) is Friday (a complex day) when the sun enters Capricorn and a three-day pause begins. The sun is quiet and still (sol = sun, stice = still) for three days. And then at midnight, Christmas morning, the midnight sun begins to move northward. And the new light, the holy child (the soul) within our hearts and minds and in that little stable in Bethlehem., the holy child is born. We are “anointed with light” — the soul’s light. 
So many events this week. Such a complex day is the Solstice – Capricorn sun, Gemini moon, Venus-Neptune, Mercury-Jupiter (an auspicious time). And Saturday morning a full moon, the last of the year, the Capricorn solar festival at 0.49 degrees. Monday is Christmas Eve with Leo moon (sign of the gift of each of us). Tuesday is Christmas day. Wednesday, the 12 Days of Christmas begin, leading to Epiphany. 
The Christmas narrative is familiar. We all know the story. Mother and father, innocent child, shepherds, a bright star (Sirius), and animals all around. No room at the inn, the stable, the manger with hay, angels singing. At this solstice Christmas new light time, let us restore Christmas to its spiritual purpose and its distant origins, to its beauty, light and magic, with sacred rituals, prayers and invocations. And let’s join the angels saying, “Merry Christmas, everyone. Peace on Earth, goodwill to all.” Love, Risa
