The Sun officially enters Capricorn on December 21, 2020 at 5:01 am ET for the Winter Solstice.
The Winter Solstice marks the point where we descend to the depths of darkness of the winter season and emerge renewed with the light getting stronger, reminding us of the phoenix rising from the ashes also symbolized by Pluto in Capricorn now.
The Sun descends into the darkness with the shortest day of the year and as he rises with the days getting longer from here on, it is a symbol of a new birth and rebirth, with the promise of new light and hope for the future.
This is a great time to focus on positive thinking, especially with Mercury in Capricorn in close orb to the Sun after they recently conjunct in Sagittarius.
Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign that is concerned with initiating and establishing goals worth reaching, being productive to achieve and climb that mountain toward your success, manifesting real world results, being a leader, and leaving a legacy.
Capricorn, being an earth sign, is highly materialistic which coincides with the shopping and gift giving season for the holidays. Having material wealth and demonstrating value and status is an important quality for Capricorn.
The Sun represents the masculine, father and authority figures in our lives and in Capricorn, reminds us to be responsible for how we are utilizing our time. When we are actively pursuing our best efforts and have the discipline to make progress in our goals we build self-confidence and self empowerment. Saturn rules Capricorn reminding us that we reap what we sow.
Just recently, Saturn entered Aquarius on December 17, 2020.
The Sun in Capricorn Winter Solstice provides us with an all new beginning that is marked by the start of fresh ambitions and a drive towards manifesting great success.
When this time of year arrives, we’re all thinking more about what we’ve accomplished so far and preparing for the new year ahead. This is a great time to consider your professional direction in your career and to reflect and shine a spotlight on new ways to transform your life.
Writing down what worked and what didn’t, and brainstorming ideas on how to make changes and new plans for the coming year ahead are recommended. Creating structure that is smart and organized will help you flourish.
This is a time to feel grounded in who we are so we can plant seeds designed to grow in abundance. As a karmic, transformative time we can see the summit and we are ready to climb the mountain with anticipation of great rewards at the summit.
Careers that are suited to Capricorn symbolically are all those that require structure and form such as management and planning, architecture, engineering, housing development, and earth oriented careers like farming and gardening. Top level structure, organization, rules and authoritative control as exemplified by politicians, business leaders, bankers and careers in finance and economics are all indicated of course. Legacy, status and fame are also indicated as top of the line goals with Capricorn.
With Pluto are in Capricorn along with the Sun now, we can expect more focus on the political and business establishments to get more light shined on them over the next month.
Capricorn being a politically oriented, authoritarian sign, we can expect to see a noticeable uptick of politicians saying just about anything to make themselves look good and their opponents look bad as they seek to maintain control.
The light of the Sun symbolizes the truth, but since politics has bias, ego and occult (hidden) elements built right in with opposing partisan sides of issues, especially noted with Pluto in Capricorn, finding the whole truth requires lot of light shined on all perspectives. Politics and business is often like a giant game of chess, where people don’t get to the top of the pyramid by being a sweet, nice, pushover. They get there by playing the game, involving a whole lot of strategic, self-serving maneuvers to win and attain their goals.
Pluto in Capricorn reveals corruption and reminds us that people play dirty and a whole lot of dirt is dug up in the process, and with the Sun here lots could come out into the light to bring awareness and clarity.
Significant revelations are sure to come to light regarding authority figures and their big power games.
Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, represents the elderly, old age, and structures developed over long periods in history. We can expect those in power positions that uphold the long established positions of authority to be in a significant period of transformation with Pluto in Capricorn.
With Saturn in Aquarius now it is social responsibility and establishing the future that is in focus.
The Sun in Capricorn encourages us all to access tried and tested wisdom to make strong decisions as we head forward into the future.
The Sun is in Capricorn until January 19, 2021.
Watch these mountain goats climbing around on Mount St. Helens. I just found this channel recently and they have a number of short videos of nature scenes accompanied by relaxing, feel good music. Check them out for a pick-me up reminder of the beauty in the world.
