Harmonic Solstice (December 21, 2011)

Harmonic Solstice Alignment (December 21, 2011)

Southern Solstice of 2011

There is a powerful and beautiful alignment accompanying this December’s Solstice.

The potency of the event is magnified in that the Sun, Moon, and all of the planets are involved in some significant manner.

This alignment includes a nearly exact opposition between Jupiter and Saturn — something that happens only briefly every 20 years. The Solstice Sun forms a highly harmonious angle with these two opposing planets — helping to ease their tension and pointing our attention toward insights that may be found in stillness and the balance of opposition.

Stillness of attention
Reveals unrecognized momentum
Finding our bearings
Circumstance turns
In fateful motion

What makes this alignment even more rare and significant, is the spacing of all the planets -- not only are they all arranged on one side of the sky, most are also positioned evenly about 30 degrees apart. This type of pattern is referred to as a harmonic -- it amplifies energy like a set of standing waves. This pattern indicates a strong synergy among the spheres -- some type of heavenly collaboration is at work with us for this solstice, and for the coming year.

Looking back at our most recent astronomical adventures, we can observe that the alignment of Venus, Spica and Comet Elenin coincide with the birth of a planetary movement (Occupy Wall Street). There is no doubt that we are currently moving through a period of profound transformation.

This solstice alignment points even more strongly toward the energetic dynamics of this transformation process. I created a youTube video discussing many of the most interesting aspects of this alignment. Please watch the video, share your comments, and encourage others to take a look.


Solstice blessings and gratitude.
