Winter Solstice ~ The Real Force Awakens
By Molly McCord, 12/18/2015
~ THE REAL FORCE AWAKENS ~
The sun (sol) hits a stoppage point (stitium) - "solstice" - twice a year as it reaches the furthest points north or south of the equator. We know the bi-annual solstice days as the periods when seasons change and our days increase, or diminish, in light, depending on your hemisphere.
The winter solstice begins the change from dark back to light over the next 6 months. There is an invitation to integrate what you've learned since the summer solstice in June, and apply it to your next round of growth. The real force within you awakens at this time as you are wiser and stronger than before. The young Jedi is now an expert and a guide. The saga of soul growth continues on a new adventure with new peeps, new lessons, and crazy-wild terrain to explore. What was hidden within you now has the potential to be activated in the light. (Full disclaimer: Disney is not profiting off of this post in any way. :)
As the winter solstice approaches on Monday, Dec 21 (summer solstice in the southern hemi), we are urged to turn our attention away from the outer world of hustle and bustle, and remember that we need periods of rest and reflection, including Netflix-binging on the couch.
Time to put away the credit cards, set down the mobile devices, and remember that we are bigger than this moment of busy-ness.
(Exception: This advice does not apply to husbands, boyfriends, or partners who still need to get their Christmas shopping done. :) }
Astrologically, the Sun moves from extrovert, popular, entertaining Sagittarius to pensive, serious, committed Capricorn on the solstice. We shift from the FUN to the MEANING of this time of year. Notice how the energy changes from feeling OMG-crazy to let's-get-serious about what matters and how much we need to spend? That's a gift of the solstice.
We also turn our attention to how far we have come in only 12 months and reflect back on what we've experienced and achieved.
How would you sum up 2015 for yourself?
The solstice invites contemplation and peace. You've done enough. You've done your best. You did all you could. You were perfect and wonderful and lovely, even when it was messy and scary and hard. You only have control over so much, so let yourself off the hook for the rest. Give yourself peace in the stillness. Find the lesson, the growth, the bigger picture - and breathe.
Recommendation: Peace is best served with chocolate and red wine.
Thankfully, that darn rascal Saturn is now in Sagittarius and no longer in Scorpio, so we really, truly have support to build a foundation for our next vision. What do you want to create in 2016 that supports your belief in yourself and your next round of dreams? That's a big question, and it will take work, but continue to believe in yourself. Be ready to get to work and follow your inspirations for the next call of your soul - the cosmos says it's time!
Other things to consider:
~ Stay flexible. More than ever, we have to be able to go with the flow and allow change to occur that is ultimately in the best interest for All. It will continue to look different, so don't get locked in to one expectation or a particular outcome.
~ Do it your way. Not what other people expect, or based on any limitations you've put on yourself previously, or what others are doing.
~ Be willing to be a NEW version of yourself. No need to hold on to what has expired or what no longer represents who you are because that may be just a bit too small now. Honor your own growth and changes - all of it.
~ The past 3 years have been tough on many levels. Now that time is over and it's time to move forward. Don't replay or rehash what's done and complete, silly!
~ Apply what you've learned. We were meant to be pushed and challenged over the past 3 years in order to now apply our knowledge and use it. You'll want to make new choices - so allow yourself to do that.
~ Wear your Star Wars costume all year long. (I just get a kick out of adults who dress up to go to the movies. How can you see through that mask?!)
This weekend will feel busy-busy with parties and shopping and lots of last-minute errands, but it will feel more grounded starting on Monday as the Sun enters Capricorn and the Moon is in Taurus. The Full Moon on Christmas day highlights family dynamics and where you feel safe in the world. May Santa grant your every wish this year - we all deserve it!
Related to these energies, I'll be talking about how 2016 begins with the Astrology and Energies of January 2016 this weekend. Yes, the radio show is back after my maternity leave, and we'll be diving into what the New Year brings as it kicks off with Mercury retrograde, Jupiter retrograde, and a New Moon in Cappy.
*The energy of 2016 is very different than the past 3 years have been! You'll feel it, too.*

How to Energetically Respond to Global Violence and Terrorism
The world's energy is a reflection of mass consciousness, and as more people raise their consciousness, we shift our collective experiences and energy together. But that road is bumpy, messy, and challenging because the whole spectrum of energies is at play on the planet, from deep fear to deep love.
We've seen a lot of violence on the global stage lately, and as people with an interest in the spiritual perspective, we know our energy can positively affect the whole.
What can you do to support global peace and allow the best possible growth to occur in the world?
I'll share some insights and suggestions that are realistic and focused on the realities of what we're going through as a human family.
Join me here on Saturday!
Cheers and holiday spirits, ya'll!
