The Sun enters Capricorn at 10:27 pm EST tonight. Happy solstice! How are you observing the shortest day and longest night? I am aware of how difficult it has been for me to find my own sense of "standing still" this week, this day.
I'm convinced that one of the reasons winter solstice rituals can feel so meaningful, even if you're just taking some time to slow down and reflect this time of year, is what happens in the days just before the solstice. The Sun, giver of life and center of our solar system, makes its annual alignment with the Galactic Center (GC): the core of our Milky Way Galaxy.
