WINTER SOLSTICE : THE RETURN OF THE LIGHT


Also known as the Winter Solstice, Yule is a holiday that celebrates the shortest day of the year and the sun’s waxing. The Winter Solstice is the most intense and challenging night of the year if you’re a farmer or live off the land. For three days the sun will stand still, on the lowest point, and then, three days later, the days will start to lengthen again.

The rebirth of the sun is special to those of us who are pagan - in the shortest day, the symbolic Oak King wins battle over the Holly King to rule the lighter half of the year. We know from this point, that the sun will gradually begin its return journey until it reaches its zenith for the summer solstice. It is also the day that the sun enters the astrological sign of Capricorn.



Symbolism of Yule:

Rebirth of the Sun, The longest night of the year, The Winter Solstice, Introspect, Planning for the Future. At this time, we respect the underworld, ward off spirits, and honour the rebirth of the sun god.


In our occidental religious background, Yule has been transformed into Christmas. To see the atmosphere of the moment, I have chosen the 24th December as part of the Yule and one minute before Christmas.

So let’s have a close look at the chart:



Following the words of Zven regarding the last FM, we realize that we have an amazing conjunction: Venus, planet of love, creativity and money flirts with Pluto, the god of the underworld...This is a beginning of a true story as we need to transform our relationship(s), our relation to money and why not discovering unexpected talents.

The situation regarding the fake vaccines and the so called pandemic must be seen with binoculars. This is the show of the flyers and we can only applause their sense of humour by manipulation mastery. Venus has turned Retrograde, inviting every woman to boost her feminine energy channeled by dreams. To examine her relation with the man and money and above all - to be aware of her Nagual part. But Venus is actually located in Capricorn - the sign of Mars, inviting every man to examine his relation to the woman, money and above all - to be aware of his tonal part. The body should react by putting somewhere the light in an area where the energy is blocked or locked. Pluto is the metamorphosis helper - always benevolent when there’s something to change. It will show you the gate asap.

I was searching for an expression to describe these astrological aspects but the Spirit

guided me to this landscape. (Pic taken form the Golden mount this morning 21st Dec

around 10.00am).


What we are facing at the moment is the entering into the eye of the storm.


Another very important aspect will be the move of the nodes, ready to escape from the mutable cross Gemini/Sagittarius/Virgo/Pisces under the supervision of the Mercurian and Jupiterian signs. We all know in the deep of our heart that the situation is complicated and dangerous. But spiritual warriors refuse to bend in front of the system makers, warriors refuse a submission to the laws of finance. The flyers well supported by their lads=medias, have succeeded in reversing the truth.

But their weapon, as we can associate media, and the sign Gemini welcoming the North Node, will be inefficient in the earth sign of Taurus. This brave animal ruled by Venus (oouuuppps what a coincidence) has no space for lies and manipulation and will welcome the North Node in January 2022. In the meantime, his opposite and complimentary fellow the deep Scorpio ruled by Mars and Pluto (oouuuppps what a coincidence) will welcome the South Node in January 2022. Time where hidden things will probably come to surface. The move from a mutable cross to a fixed cross will definitely shake the flyers, as surprisingly the North Node will be meeting Uranus. So are we ready for an inner revolution? Yes, we are. And it has already started.


Have a fantastic Yule or Christmas as you like ....and be ready for the new year!

May the Force be with you!
