Winter Solstice 2018

Winter Solstice 2018 - Grounding

"Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working."

— Pablo Picasso

The general optimism of the Sun's transit through Sagittarius is enhanced this week by an inspiring and creative Venus-Neptune trine. Nonetheless, we may find ourselves hesitant to continue to work towards deeper connections with others. The strong desire for independence and autonomy is at odds with the importance of continuing to reach out and make broader, collaborative connections. Venus leaves the shadow of the retrograde process that began all the way back in September — which has guided us to revise and rebuild the framework of our connections with others. As our confidence ebbs and flows, the need to find a supportive environment is highlighted and is likely to have us occasionally opening up the doors and windows to our internal Creative Workshop. The Sun's trine to Uranus is certainly likely to keep us stirred up and possibly somewhat on edge but by the end of the week, we reach a powerfully grounding Full Moon (December 22nd 9:48 AM PST 0° Capricorn/Cancer) on the cusps of Cancer and Capricorn, which occurs just after the Winter Solstice on Friday. We are encouraged to stop chasing rainbows and settle down enough to make tangible progress while still maintaining a balance with creative and spiritual pursuits. The cusp influence of the Full Moon point to the importance of maintaining balance — honoring our creative processes without ignoring the need for material accomplishments.

Isolation is likely to create an internal loop of fatalism on Sunday if we don't open up and make connections with others by openly sharing the building creative inspiration and also listening to the inspiration and insights of others. An endless string of distractions may send us off the rails on Monday. Inspiration isn't enough to keep us satisfied on Tuesday. There are strong demands to quit dreaming about our ideas and actually put them to work. Confidence is unsteady on Wednesday even though inhibitions fall away and we find more room for creative exploration. We begin to feel the powerful grounding effect of the coming Winter Solstice on Thursday. It is important to balance material and spiritual pursuits. Despite the helpful grounding of the Winter Solstice and coming Full Moon, impatience may keep us stirred up on Friday. Saturday morning's Full Moon marks a notable shift towards tangible accomplishments. Nonetheless, we may begin to feel that our opportunities are slipping away. However, we should not give up on what we already have — replace fear with gratitude.
