Winter Solstice 2021 occurs at 2:02 am December 21, 2020, just eight hours before the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. Here in the Northern Hemisphere we experience the longest night of the year. In ceremonies around the world we release this year’s burdens and peel away the dead skins. We die to the past, ready to ignite the fresh flame of the New Year to come.


I know, it’s been so long and hard. None of us have ever had a year like this. The tradition of coming together for the darkest nights of the year has been foiled by social distancing and smashed travel plans. Winter Solstice 2021 will be fundamentally different from any other.

And yet, we need each other. We need community.


Have you been itching to burst out of your skin? On December 17, 2020, the Stern Taskmaster Saturn moved into the humanitarian sign of Aquarius. For the next two plus years our focus shifts from how structures are built to how communities thrive! Some of us have literally been crawling out of our skins as this powerful change ripples through us. 


Yes, if you are sensitive, or you have aspects in your personal chart (like ME) that are affected by this change, you are buzzing. This is big.


Really big. Like, change the world big. It’s so exciting! But first, we purge the pains of 2020 in the darkness of the Solstice. So we stay present with the jaggedy, restless vibrations that precede a radical paradigm shift.
