This Solstice is coming in exactly conjunct Mercury which signifies that our thoughts and words will be of special import during this upcoming year. The energy supports an alignment between thoughts, word, heart and soul ie CLARITY. We would do well to make good use of this Ase' (spiritual energy).
As the shortest day of the year meaning the day with the least amount of light, we could say that this represents the "Womb of the Year". A time to go within, to slow down, to retreat, to sabbatical. It is my recommendation that we address any unfinished business, undelivered communications, unfullfilled obligations etc as going into the darkness with oneself will surely face us with the contents of the subconscious.
Lets clear the way for a beautiful journey into the Galactic Blackness of our own minds.
