“If we live for those things that are material and transitory, we will see them destroyed by moss and rust, as all material things are eventually overcome. Therefore the only recourse is to live for the Soul, which is not affected by either moss or rust.”
Where is happiness found? Is it found in a tree, in our possessions, in how much we own, in prestige and title... or do we depend on others for our happiness? It we do, we may find ourselves disappointed at some point. With Venus still in concrete Capricorn until Tuesday, we’re going to be served a heavy helping of reality check.
If you put all of your hopes and wishes on another person, that only places a tremendous burden on them, but does not realistically face the truth that all relationships eventually part. Even if you don’t separate willingly, people pass away or move on or away to another level of experience. And if you put all your joy in things... in stuff that is subject to decay and rust... they may bring a momentary sense of indulgence, even support and familiarity... but if you were to lose those things, would you lose your joy?
Joy is not in things; it is in us.
Renunciation is actually a form of self-reliance. It’s a change of perspective about what is truly important in your life. Is it money? Prestige? Things? Or is there a joy that transcends all of these material pleasures?
There are shifts taking place. If you look over the past year, you can see where you have dared to walk on a less familiar path, to explore new possibilities. Some have been forced on to a new path, others have chosen to do so. And the more possibilities we’ve explored, the more we stepped off of our familiar path, the more we have allowed creativity and innovation to grow. Changes can be scary, but they also provide fertile soil for new seeds to sprout.
Allow your heart to open to the inevitability of change. To be fascinated by revelation and the growth that it brings. The Capricorn Solstice represents a time when there is a surge of spiritual and ethical force. It is a time of planting seeds.. and giving substance to resolutions. And as you stand on the brink between that which was, and that which is to come, the Capricorn Solstice stands as our opportunity to pause and look within. Into our own still spiritual center. Discover the joy within.
The Real Christmas means something to the Real Man, and it applies to the whole of man’s nature. Let us take advantage of the resurgence of spiritual, mental, and moral force that comes with the Christmas time. It is the feeling and the thought in our hearts which reach people and stir their hearts to a better feeling, a wider and stronger action, for all our hearts are based in the same One Life.
For the week of Dec. 16th thru December 23rd, read your Rising Sign as well, if you know it:
If you can’t have what you want right now, or be with the person you want to be with, or you feel limited due to obligations or responsibility... look within. Sometimes it’s necessary to part ways in order to embrace your future, freed and unburdened by the past or cloying burdens. Seek freedom. Seek joy. And embrace that which is uniquely and indefatigably you. That which you will never be bored with. Let the rest of the world adjust. Something to take note of: Time Magazine named “The Protestor” the Person of the Year for 2011. Let’s make the 2012 Person of the Year, Aries.
With your ruler, Venus, in mutual reception to (in each other’s signs), and square to Saturn, there is a certain amount of respect, and sense of responsibility that these support. It’s an objective brush with reality, with a large dose of obligation. There can also be an element of sadness, and perhaps regret for the past that is being left behind. Do not give in to despair, however, because the perspective is going to change suddenly as Venus changes signs this week. You’re in the midst of melancholy and nostalgia, and then you’re thrust out on to the dance floor in the midst of this huge unexpected party, with lots of new acquaintances, and probably way too much to eat. There is sadness in parting, but there is also joy in greeting. Feel the joy, and relish the good things that you have in your life today.
Thank goodness Mercury is now Direct again! Now you can finally make plans.. especially as you know where everyone stands. This is a time when you are able to look at life with a calm detachment. As a result, you are in a better position to be able to help others, and to know what is the best course of action... You have been prepared for this moment, now it’s just a matter of application. After the madness of the last few weeks, seek serenity: roll out the yoga mat, create moments of peace and acceptance. The tools are now there for you to create something wonderful.
You know what needs to be done, you can see things more clearly, because you are not being dictated by your emotions. You can see practical solutions, and are given tools that you can work with. Use them. Then be willing to embrace the joy of the holiday season. Sudden and unexpected events should not be feared. They are helping to get you out of a rut. And can indeed by the fulfillment of a dearly held hope and wish. The Solstice is reigniting Uranus in the sign you associate with career and reputation. Uranus’ job is to weed out the undergrowth that prevents you from thriving. There are changes afoot.
You know what you have to do, and you’re going to get it done as you wind down to the Solstice next week. The Solstice is a time when the Sun, your ruler, appears to stance still. In the Northern hemisphere it marks the shortest, darkest, day of the year, and much of its symbolism is associated with the Northern yearning for the return of the Light, the Sun. Bonfires were lit to welcome back the light, and festivals performed in the name of the Sun Gods. The one thing this Solstice is remarkable for, North or South, is the exceptional quality of Hope.
Thank goodness Mercury has finally stationed Direct again! In the light of that, there are some changes afoot, but at least you know where everyone is going to be over the holidays. The Solstice, by its very nature, is a time for Virgo to find their inner joy. This is a joy that you find in loyalty, familiarity, dependability and reliance. But it’s even more poignant this year because of Jupiter’s station in Taurus on the 25th. You will be buoyed on the Jovian wings of the mighty planet. As a result this is a good time to go on vacation, or just relax, unwind and find your joy. Without stress! Give yourself permission to relax.
Normally this is a time of inner joy, family support and finding repose at home. But a sense of responsibility and obligation has seemed to overshadow your ability to find your customary happiness. Not to mention this sense of being left out in the cold. Remember when you do a service to do it without the expectation of rewards or accolades... but simply because it is the right thing to do. But temporary hurts or regrets swiftly give way to joy this week after your ruler, Venus, enters Aquarius on Tuesday. With much fanfare and celebration, I might add. Put on your best dancing shoes and allow your heart to sing.
If you start out the week feeling despondent or down in the dumps, be prepared to realize that this will not last for long. The Solstice is a marker for sowing resolutions, planting seeds, and discriminating between those things that are transitory and those that are truly lasting and important to you. Your whole outlook is changing in some remarkable way, and with that comes the realization of so many future possibilities.
Normally optimistic and forward-looking Sagittarius, has been feeling like they are juggling all sorts of fears and trepidations, both imagined and real. But it’s true what they say about Sagittarius... they are truly charmed and able to negotiate even the most difficult of circumstances. Things may not work out exactly as you wanted, but they’re a good deal better than they could have been. And, as your ruler, Jupiter, is stationing Direct on the 25th, it’s only going to be getting better and better. There is much to celebrate.
Capricorn prides itself in pragmatism and thrift. But sometimes you just need to let go and let God. Your ruler Saturn almost (but not quite) meets Neptune this Winter, and this week the Sun carries the light between them as we embrace the Solstice. In so doing, there is an opportunity to acknowledge the value and beauty of renunciation. Renunciation is not just about giving up chocolate for Lent... it’s about a change of perception.. it’s also about giving up the need for control, or putting too much emphasis on the results and expectations from what you do, rather than finding joy in the action itself. Surrender to the divine.
We all have a Path. But sometimes we only see the part directly in front of our feet, and cannot see the vistas that await. This Solstice reminds us how swiftly and suddenly life can change. And it can indeed feel disorienting at first. But the Capricorn Solstice is a time for Aquarius to realize that there is a higher purpose afoot, and that often what we think we want and desire, may not be the best thing for us. But because we cannot see the big picture, and those rolling vistas around the corner, we fail to see the joy that the future can hold for us. It can be tremendously freeing. When meeting with resistance, allow yourself to relinquish personal control to the Divine.
In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna asks: I wish to know the nature of renunciation and sacrifice, and the difference between the two. Through the renunciation of, or giving up of things, we eventually come to realize that which is sacred. To sacrifice (give over to the divine) for a higher ideal, is to make something sacred. In the conflict between the ideal and reality, there are junctures when these two are occasionally able to make a conciliation, where Saturn (reality) discovers grace, and Neptune (idealism) is given the tools to make your dreams a closer reality. From inspiration to implementation, it’s slowly beginning to all come together this week. Celebrate by allowing yourself to kick back and just experience the joy of a job well done.

June is named after the Roman Mother Goddess, Juno, the Queen of Heaven and the consort of Jupiter, the Father God. In Anglo-Saxon, June was known as Aerra Litha, meaning before Litha, or Midsummer; in Welsh, Mehefin, or Midsummer; and in Gaelic; the young month, An t’Og mhios. ~ Diana Ferguson (The Magickal Year)
This ancient religious monument, constructed of great megalithic stones and lintels, known as Stonehenge, was much more than a temple, it was an astronomical calculator. Like great giants entwined in a circular dance, much like the planets around the Sun, it became evident that these stones had been perfectly aligned for specific moments in time, for instance to capture the Sun’s rays at the Summer Solstice. At Midsummer the Sun rises directly behind the Hele Stone... casting a line of darkness, reaching its shadowy arm right through the center of the standing stones.
This week we celebrate the Summer Solstice here in the North, which coincides with Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. June 21st is the longest day of the year in the North, where long Summer evenings creep into the night hours. It is the high noon of the year, where the Sun celebrates its magnificence in all its glory. It is also one of the 4 corners of the year, one of the cardinal points, when the Sun enters the Cardinal sign of Cancer, implying a new season, a new thrust of energy and light. But even as this is a celebration of light, it also marks the time of year when the days will gradually decrease in light. At this time of the year, the Sun appears to stand still, hesitating on the brink, before it descends again to the South. And so the Sun God has reached his prime.
Litha, the Summer Solstice, was celebrated in ancient times with fire and drums and celebration, and as late as the 18th century bonfires would be lit on all the hilltops in the countryside of England. And so with marigolds intertwined, and dedicated to the sun gods, we dance and pay homage to the Lord of Light this week.
Be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Be open to change this weekend... things may not proceed as planned, so allow yourself to be flexible and roll with the punches. You will have more than your share of distractions. But as a result, this is probably not the best week to make major decisions if it can be at all helped. This weekend you’ll be inclined to be hasty and impulsive, at best scattered... as for the rest of the week, well, think of it as a fugue of distraction. Since you won’t know where you are any way, immerse yourself in pleasant moments of mystification, such as one experiences when going to the movies, attending a concert, a Buddhist retreat, or an escape to the shore.
There is something to be said for familiarity. You know where everything is. You know what to expect from others, and they of you. There is security and stability in the mundane routines of everyday life. Jupiter is now well ensconced in your sign. And as the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer this week, he casts an approving glance in your direction. Good luck comes through those in your everyday life... perhaps some good news, good tidings, or coming to learn something that you didn’t know before. This is a good time to make a plan, because you are positive, allowing you to open your gaze on farther horizons.
When Gemini is happy, we are all happy, chortling in their joyous laughter and charm. When Gemini is off-kilter, they’re a bundle of frayed nerves rattling around in a can. You’ll be feeling both extremes this week. And so will we. On the one hand, with Venus in your own sign of Gemini, you’re feeling like all is right with the world. But then with your ruler Mercury, freshly immersed in the waters of Cancer, you’re also feeling, at least at first, like you’re running around trying to arrange and rearrange things, which gets gradually confounded and befuddled by your own fears and worries, as you face, what appear to you, to be road blocks. You want to make things happen. Mars is entering your sign.. and you want to be pro-active. But sometimes it’s best to just let things be. At least for now. There is a certain wisdom in knowing that which is worth the effort, the battles that are worth struggling to win, and to recognize when you’re just shoveling snow in a snow storm.
You are entering your season, as the inner planets gradually make their annual pilgrimage to Cancer. At this time of year, you are more likely than usual to speak out and let people know just exactly what you think.. just be prepared to find that others will not necessarily agree with your point of view this weekend, drawing you into un-winnable power struggles. This is not a week for trying to force others to your point of view... rather it is a time to come to terms with your inner spiritual nature that feels compassion and understanding for all (even your adversaries). This can be realized through one of those spiritual moments that awakens the heart, and allows it to grow 3 sizes too big... so allow yourself moments to step back and truly contemplate. And then be willing to agree to disagree.
If you want true peace, happiness and joy, you need to realize that happiness and satisfaction come from within you and stop searching so fanatically outside. You can never find real happiness out there. Who has? ~ Lama Thubten Yeshe
The Sun follows Mercury into the silent retreat of your 12th sign Cancer. And as the Sun does so it sends secret, subliminal messages to Neptune, doing its own retreat in the sign of Pisces. This is one of those times, such as when you see a magnificent sunrise, or are transfixed by the beauty of a field of flowers, or are uplifted through a sense of charity. Those are the moments that transcend the physical, that makes one feel as if there is more to this world than random carbon molecules thrown into the soup pot. These are moments that literally make you feel like you are soaring. Feel the joy that is within. Celebrate the Light.
Things start out this week on a pleasant note... just be willing to change plans mid-stream, and jump over hurdles over the weekend. Power struggles with children, or issues over money could throw a strain on things, finding you obsessed and unwilling to let go. Let it go. You’re going to have enough problems just trying to ward off past mistakes and misdemeanors, that come to haunt you like last week’s tuna casserole fermenting on the back shelf. If you need to confess to get it off your chest, so do it, but chances are you’re no more guilty than the rest of us. So cease dwelling on what you should or should not have done or said. It probably wouldn’t make a bit of difference any way.
In the process of discovering who you are, and what you want to do, there are going to be some things that seem to reconfirm that you are on the right path, maybe even be illuminating and promising... but then there will be other things that seem to be standing in the way of your truly being able to be yourself. But even conflict helps to define who you are, what you like, and what you know you really want to do. As the Sun enters the Cancer this week, you could very well find yourself basking in the limelight. And filled with a sense of joy by week’s end... perhaps a celebration is in order. But then who needs an excuse? Feel the joy.
It feels like someone is throwing down the gauntlet, and forcing you to have to defend yourself, what you believe in, what you believe to be right. It’s very likely that this battle has less to do with whether someone is right or wrong... it’s more about power and control. This same energy can be used this weekend to solve a problem or a mystery, or figure out how to decode or encode or program something... it’s that kind of technical, and strategic sleuthing that can be useful at times. This is even more so since your ruler, Mars, is entering Gemini this week, inspiring you to want to solve even the most frustrating of dilemmas... however at some point you will have to admit, that some problems can’t be so easily unraveled, especially when dealing with sneaky or dishonest individuals who try to undermine you. Light and clarity disarms the darkness.
Good news comes on this week.. perhaps concerning work, or maybe something to do with your health... something that fills you with not only joy, but a sense of anticipation and promise. Try to make your daily routine more enjoyable in some way, allow some of that joy to visit you in your work environment. Spread some of that good cheer around that you’ve been harvesting, you’ll find that it can be infectious. And also see if you can channel some of that positive attitude into a plan for the future, for it seems that you can see for miles this week.
Sometimes more can be accomplished by working with others, or taking on a partner who will help to share some of the responsibilities. The only problem with this is then you have to actually share and/or delegate the responsibilities, and that requires not doing everything yourself. True, it is often so much harder having to teach or explain to other people how to do something, than it is to just do it yourself. Understood. Nonetheless, if you can get past the whole communication issues... this might be worth considering.
With Venus trine your ruler Saturn this weekend, relationships with loved ones are strengthened.. leaning towards achieving and supporting stability within your life. These are the people that help you to understand yourself, more fully, with greater clarity. Then there are those conversations early this week with others, that leave you feeling frustrated and be-gloomed.... lest you say the wrong thing.. you are inclined to just keep your thoughts to yourself. This is particularly true in work environments where some people seem to think they know everything already.
Pisces is still basking in the trail of fairy dust and soft light meditations left in the wake of the Jupiter/Neptune sextile that is now separating. First Mercury and then the Sun will carry the light from Neptune to Jupiter this week, spreading good tidings, granting wishes and filling your life with wonder and joy. This will be helpful, for this could prove to be an otherwise draining week, as there seems to be a bit of commotion that needs tending to in the home and family arena. Your service and good deeds and intentions are really what makes the difference.. so remember this to avoid over-extending yourself beyond what you are physically capable of handling. You can only do so much.

Total Lunar Eclipse Tuesday, December 21st - the Winter Solstice
This is its work upon the things ye see,
The unseen things are more; men’s hearts and minds,
The thoughts of peoples and their ways and wills,
Those, too, the great Law binds.
Such is the Law which moves to righteousness,
Which none at last can turn aside or stay;
The heart of it is Love, the end of it Is Peace and Consummation sweet. Obey!
~Edwin Arnold “The Light of Asia“
We all carry wounds within. Some wounds we are quite aware of. Others we try to ignore, or do not face, for fear of having to acknowledge what we believe to be some dreaded, shameful truth. Truths that might not have any bearing whatsoever on the life we now have. Outmoded truths.
But until we let go of those wounds they will continue to manifest as fears, doubts, and inappropriate behaviors that prevent us from taking control of our own lives.
Some of these wounds may be recently inflicted. But most likely, even if they are, they are layered upon other layers of previous, similar wounds. Sometimes you do need to debride a wound. Remove the dead, damaged, infected parts, the parts that prevent it from healing, and then allow the air and the light and your own body’s natural capacity for rehabilitation, to do its good work.... healing from the inside out.
I came into this life with a wound. It was not anything that could be seen. But I remembered it well from the life just previous. Some would say I was delusional, or at least over-imaginative, but for me it was indelibly printed on my psyche as a reality. My memory was of being a child, who wore a distinct disfigurement, so dramatic that people were frightened when they saw me. Children would taunt me and would not play with me. I feared going out in public. The loneliness, shame and fear I carried, was not resolved and remained as a burden I carried into this life as well.
I had a doll in my early childhood in this life. Her name was Sniffles. She cried and peed when you fed her a bottle. My younger sister practiced cutting her hair and eyelashes, leaving her quite bald on one side of her head. Another time, I left her too close to the radiator and her hand melted off. I fed her milk in her bottle, but her primitive worm-like digestive system proved to be lactose intolerant, and she would never pee again, and retained a somewhat rancid smell. I loved that doll in all her guises, with or without hair, whether her eyes would open and shut any more, whether she could pee any more. She was my favorite doll. I bandaged her arm, and made her into a super hero who could fly and had wonderful super powers. I made her a cape. She defied her wounds. And then one day I just outgrew her. And I didn’t need her any more.
I was born with South Node in Cancer riding high in my chart. Which is where it is now, once again with this South Node Lunar Eclipse on the day of the Solstice. The day of Light Returning. There comes a time when we have outgrown old wounds, when they are no longer relevant. When we need to face those bullies that we allowed to continue to taunt us. Several things can happen in the process when we do this. We can become the bully and abuser ourselves. Or we can flaunt our wounds like a badge of honor, and carry around the dead corpse of a wound that once was. Or we can look and see what needs to be debrided, and thrown out, in order to allow the wounds to heal. Release the outmoded fear, the anger, the doubts, whatever we may be ashamed about. And move on.
Perhaps you’ve talked yourself into a corner. Perhaps you even lied, or misrepresented yourself... it was a matter of survival. Or so you thought. And now you fear that it is coming back to bite you in the butt. You’ve been living the lie for so long, that you even began to believe it. But now you are in the public eye. And it’s kind of scary. It is time for Aries to grow up and act like the one that we all look up to for guidance. To be a leader in the community. To be professional. But in order to do this, you have to release your own self-doubts imposed on you in the dim recesses of your early life. And be the leader in your field that you were always meant to be. Not the fantasy. The real deal. Let go of what you did or did not say or do. Believe in yourself. It’s what you’re doing now that counts.
Your wounds are in your own self-worth. The spectre of poverty looms over you like a ghost of Christmas Present, sheltering starving children beneath his cloak. The children are called Ignorance and Want. The ghost tells us “Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy...” the boy is Ignorance. You are much, much more valuable than your present circumstances, would lead you to believe. It is time to broaden your horizons as well as your potential. And stop limiting yourself with thinking about what you can not do, and open your eyes to the limitless possibilities unfolding before you.
Your ruler, Mercury, has moved back into Sagittarius again, and you’re inclined to look at the big picture and your future. What you learn could have you so excited you’re willing to sign away your first-born without a second thought. Don’t make any definite decisions or binding agreements yet! Do be prepared to change your mind many times before you get to that point...there could be some changes in the financial picture. In the mean time, in order to make a wise and practical investment, you have to release yourself of some preconceived notions about commitment vs. freedom, and fears about ownership. Then you can take the next big step.
You’ve grown so accustomed to playing the role of the wounded victim that you fail to see just how powerful you really can be. You are being given the opportunity to leave your enemies behind, but it’s hard when one injustice seems to pile on top of all the other accumulated injustices. So in your imagination you plot your secret revenge. But they will no longer be able to taunt you from where you are going to soon be. But you need to get there first. That means releasing the past, with all of its wounds, going back lifetimes ago. That means letting go of resentments, and anger, and self-protection... Because you have some serious work to do in the outside world taking care of, and fighting for others. But you have to let go of that whole victim idea first.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is, exactly who are you trying to impress? Do you really need to go along with the maddening crowd any more? Before anyone or any group tries to lead you down the garden path of shame yet again, remember where that landed you in the past. There are things that people do in the company of others that they would never do on their own. And some of those things are really deleterious to your health and well-being. Creating a healthy routine, and establishing a well-balanced diet may not be all that glamorous, and there are so many distractions this time of year, that you doubt if it’s even possible... but this is precisely where your energy needs to be focused, above and beyond any New Year’s Resolutions that fall flat by February. Who cares what anyone else thinks? In fact you could be at the vanguard of a whole new healthy trend.
What sacrifices have you had to make for career, recognition, status and glory, only to see it given away to someone else? What image or goal do you now need to release, in order to be able to move on? You find yourself preoccupied with circumstances and situations outside of yourself.. you are compelled to want to remedy the wrongs in the world, to show people the error of their ideas. This could find you thrusting your foot in your mouth in a few more family type holiday occasions this week...as your ruler Mercury comes back to the sign of Sagittarius. And it reminds you of a few things that you forgot to say before. However, where you are needing to look forward to, while you let go of previous ideas you held about status and reputation... is more about creative self-expression and finding your true voice. You have something to say, you just have to believe that you have a right to say it.
One thing you need to let go of is the idea that in order to be appreciated, you need to have some sort of credentials, some sort of worldly experience, something really wise to say. So long as you think this, you will think that you don’t have enough education, that you are of the wrong faith, that you are of the wrong caste, some how, you were born in the wrong place at the wrong time. You don’t need to get a diploma, or 5 degrees, or huge audiences and a title. You don’t need to travel the world to find your truth. It’s much closer than you think. It’s in your home and by building strong family bonds that you will find your greatest power, your greatest authenticity, and stability. Your capacity to heal yourself and be reborn. You don’t need to prove anything to anyone else. Who cares what anyone else is doing? You are the real thing. Believe it.
Scorpio knows all about wounds. Through loss, death, despair, and remorse, they carry their guilt and shame and grief like an albatross about their necks. But by sharing those wounds, by speaking about subjects that others dare not even utter in dark rooms, you not only heal yourself, but have this amazing capacity to heal others as well. It would do you well not to get caught up in the idea of whether what you say is ‘appropriate’ or not. We would all do well to hang on your every word... there is pregnant meaning in each phrase.
Mercury has come back to your sign, but don’t expect to get things all sorted out quite yet... there are still a few more surprises and changes in schedule yet to come. Just when you thought you had one problem straightened out, here comes another. What you need to let go of, is the feeling of being so let down, used, and perhaps even deceived, by others. In order to move forward, and be a responsible and successful person in society, you need to let go of the repeating tapes about how other people have screwed you. In order to keep yourself from being taken advantage of by others, you need to make your world, yourself, safer. This is what your focus needs to be on... rebuilding your world financially, emotionally and psychically on a much stronger, safer and more stable foundation than it was before.
Some how you are holding on to this wound of being insignificant, someone who is weak and inconsequential. Ineffective. Maybe even invisible. The humble servant. The housewife in the kitchen. Coming from humble, blue-collar, backwater beginnings. Karma is giving you a swift kick in the pants these days in the personal reassessment department. Capricorn strives for respect. Position. With position comes a certain amount of responsibility. And integrity. You need to remake your self-image. But that doesn’t happen by beating others over the head. What you don’t want to do is take on the role of the beggar on horseback. If you want others to appreciate you, you first need to believe that you should be appreciated. You need to believe in yourself. You need to show others what you can do. If you act with dignity, the rest follows.
Perhaps you didn’t take your responsibilities seriously enough. Perhaps you were too busy playing or evading, or looking for ways to be free. Not have to conform. Not have to punch in the proverbial time clock. You can’t keep running away. Sooner or later life is going to catch up to you. Along with the bill collectors at the door. No one is going to serve you, or take care of you. Not with your history. The only one who can really take care of you is yourself. What you need to do is come face to face with your past, throw out all the psychic baggage that has been building up there, tossing the clutter out the door, and rebuild your emotional and psychological framework on a firmer and more stable foundation. It’s called getting real.
Something has reached a crescendo in the home and family as you arrive at the Solstice. You have reached a point of inevitability, and you can’t help but feel a little excited. However, it would not be wise to commit to anything at this time, at least not right away, and it is likely that circumstances will arise leading you to change your mind more than once before the month is through... but you can’t help but be just a little excited and enthusiastic. With all the commitments of the week, and continual changes in plans, it’s all you can do to keep up with the itinerary, and stay on point, though. One thing becomes evident. In order to see your hopes and dreams become a more realistic probability you’re going to have to let something go. Something that you’ve been attached to, but no longer need.
