Sun Enters Capricorn: The Return of Structure

Every year at the Winter Solstice, we’re invited back into the strong embrace of Capricorn -- the sign of structure, stability and security. When the Sun returns to this Saturn-ruled sign on December 21, the calendar also invites most of us back into the embrace of family life.

It's time to slow down and reconnect to the people we love. That’s why the holidays are such an important time to take stock of our lives and our relationships. This sturdy sign is about tradition and taking pleasure in the rituals that guide our lives.

Capricorn is an Earth sign, one that knows how to get things done in the most practical, efficient way. That’s quite different from the previous sign, Sagittarius, which can make the first three weeks of December feel like a wild free-for-all.

By the time we get closer to Christmas, we’re more than ready to put down the eggnog and get off the party circuit. It’s time to take a breath, feel the ground under your feet and put on your coziest pajamas. There is a stillness in the air, and it’s worth taking notice of. Try not to rush around too much, even if you have last-minute shopping to do.

The one caution at this time of year is not to be too hard on yourself. Sometimes Capricorn energies can trigger old, negative mental tapes -- the kind that your family members may have inadvertently imprinted you with. And when you do take the time to reconnect with them, all that harshness can return again.

As is the spirit of the holidays, forgiveness is the very best cure when fear creeps into your mind. Capricorn can give you the courage to do the most challenging thing of all: forgive yourself first.
