Winter Solstice 2011 brings Sun Capricorn/Moon Scorpio

Having just published my column on Winter Solstice 2011, I thought you might wish to join me in a consideration of its Sun Capricorn/Moon Scorpio blend of energies.

View the horoscope and read a few details here; be advised that the Winter Solstice 2011 chart is set for the White House so my text relates most directly to DC politics and American issues.

With Capricorn ruled by restrictive, conservative Saturn, and the Moon’s sign Scorpio ruled by Mars and Pluto, it’s not the easiest Solstice chart I’ve ever written about but it’s the one we’ve got to usher us into the watershed year of 2012.

(My sincere hope–prayer–is that the ongoing Fukushima Meltdown will not be what makes 2012 so…special and volatile. Sadly, you should know that the current news from Japan is not good at all.)

Sun Cap/Moon Sco is an Earth-Water combo–in a word, mud. As such it is a practical and supportive blend so let’s cheer for that, shall we?

This blend gives Winter Season 2011/2012 an aura of resilience and ambition with undertones of Mars-Pluto-Saturn, not a pleasant trio of planetary energies especially when times are already tough. Washington DC’s favorite Saturnian word of 2011–austerity–comes easily to mind, and if you view the above-linked horoscope, you’ll find it awash with financial issues along with some military implications.

Now Sun Cap/Moon Sco indicates dedication, strength of character, and loyalty so we’ll see where these traits manifest as winter goes forth. This blend is also known for its common sense, something which would be very welcome in US politics about now, agreed?

And since this blend favors traditional values, perhaps we-the-people’s desire to retain America as America will continue to be included in our public dialogue, thanks in large part to the ongoing efforts of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Compassion and moral integrity are also welcomed facets of the Sun Cap/Moon Sco combo.

Weaknesses of the Sun Cap/Moon Sco combination include an over-emphasis on austerity measures, a too-serious attitude, and a tendency to remain blind to one’s own prejudices (a prevalent trait found in DC politics.) Actually, most people are blind to their own prejudices for if they were not, they might have to let go of them!

Well, Sun Cap/Moon Sco is a very determined and tenacious combination of energies and perhaps its “Images for Integration” may apply. See what you think–the first image reminds me of Pvt. Bradley Manning’s detention for his possible WikiLeaks involvement–and his hearing is set for December 16, 2011, a date you’ll find mentioned in the Winter Solstice 2011 post for its ‘government shutdown’ potential:

“A prisoner in solitary confinement undergoes a conversion and becomes an indefatigable worker for the transformation and betterment of mankind…A priest turns his home into a shelter for the sick and homeless.”

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Yes. The sick. The homeless. All over America, thanks to culpable politicians who serve as Big Banking handmaidens and paid-for shills–legislating against we-the-people who make up the 99%.

  1. Solar Eclipse in Dec: Intense affirmation to improving personal circumstances. Rich or poor, all may want to hunker down withdraw. A time when we could dig in and be a “me first” population. Whatever we have put into place for our security, (or haven’t) could color our opinions. Overall, the largest invested group wins.
    Or the group with the most pull wins.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
