The Winter Solstice will occur on December 21, 2021, at 3:59 p.m. Universal Time, or 4:59 p.m. Paris time. Astrologically, the Solstice corresponds to the entry of the Sun into Capricorn. The natal chart drawn for the event sets the tone for the period leading up to the Spring Equinox on March 20, 2022. The major aspect is the Moon/Pluto opposition which augurs profound transformations on an individual basis, as well as in a more general way.
When the Sun arrives in Capricorn, it will join Mercury, Venus and Pluto also in this sign. There is a lot of Earth in this sky, including of course Uranus in Taurus, which has a hard time asserting its values of freedom and independence. The Earth element often dominates at this time of the year, but the difference will be significant since Saturn in Aquarius will clash with Uranus for the third and last time in 2021. This will put nerves on edge, as everyone would like to think about the end of the year celebrations, filling Santa’s bag, kissing in the New Year, with a serene, festive and convivial spirit. The Moon in Cancer will be in full agreement with this program of being cocooned by your loved ones and bringing them the same love in return.
The Mercury/Uranus trine will have the art of intervening wisely by showing a pragmatic spirit to resolve changes, to calm disputes, to calm excessive reactions. He will certainly have a lot of work to do in the face of stubbornness and sometimes radical decisions, but he will not give up. Mars in Sagittarius, with his usual ardor, will give good advice. In order for this advice to be heard, you may have to agree to put it into practice. This will not be easy under his opposition to the North Node in Gemini, the sign that transmits information.
A touch of madness, a desire to enjoy yourself, to take advantage of the time that passes before it passes us by, the Venus/Pluto conjunction will be passionate, bewitching and exciting. Hearts will come together, curling up against each other to comfort each other by making plans for the future, punctuated by passionate kisses. This need to unite deeply with the person dear to one’s heart, to share moments of complicity with loved ones, to connect with the vibrations of cooperation, to unite all together in a world of peace will take on its full meaning when Jupiter enters Pisces on December 29, 2021.
