Winter Solstice 2015
"The beauty is that through disappointment you can gain clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality." - Conan O'Brien
This looks as if it is going to be a very up and down Winter Solstice, one minute joyful and the next chaotic. This is mirrored by the weather, world events and relationship dynamics. As it says above, clarity will come, and sometimes with surprising suggestions. Amidst this chaos we will be sowing seeds, so it is very important to take extra care and be grounded, as well as double checking the clarity. It is also highly recommended that you protect your energy well - this is about filters not an armour.
There will be an element of success tinged with scepticism about our personal growth during this period of learning. The focus should be on motivation as we will feel passionate about certain issues. The challenge will be to avoid being patronising, or trying to be convincing without true clarity. A bit like trying to sell ice cream to Eskimos!
Although you may feel inner confusion at the beginning of the Solstice, if you stay positive and avoid petty-mindedness in particular, there will be a sense of resolution and regeneration in the end. Forgiveness will also play a strong role at this time, using any practice that suits your individual preference.
It will be a rite of passage leading to expansion, and emotional balance. We are all moving forwards and walking our talk as far as our "true" values and beliefs are concerned. We are preparing for a completely new attitude towards achieving peace and resolving conflict, therefore we need to resolve our inner conflicts sooner rather than later.
This Solstice is about looking at our individual role within the collective. This is "the" opportunity to get our own house in order before this collective move forwards.
