Dec 21 2008 Winter Solstice

Sun entered Capricorn early this morning, right around Winter Solstice. Plenty of history, lots of imitators...this is one of two stillpoints. In the Northern Hemisphere, if one is sufficiently tuned to the rhythms of nature, one can feel this stillpoint, somewhat like the point between breaths, only on a much longer timescale. Moon will be sextile Mars, exact at 7:21 am PST, then square Jupiter, exact at 8:57 am PST, when she goes Moon Void of Course till 3:36 pm PST. Then, Moon will be sextile Sun, exact at 4:39 pm PST and sextile Pluto, exact at 5:21 pm PST. Good morning for action, with a magnanamous touch. The Moon Void of Course through mid-day makes it a perfect time to reflect on the stillness of the Winter Solstice. Then, a good evening for depth and passion.

Today's Birthcard is the Ten of Hearts, a Jupiter implementation of a Mars core, with a Jack of Clubs inside and a Five of Spades outside. Charlie "Bird" Parker, Jane Fonda, Harpo Marx, J. K. Rowling, and Phil Donahue are various examples of expression of this Card.
