The longest night of the year is happening right now along  with the dark of the new Capricorn moon; yet it is a turning point — one filled with exciting potential! As with all new moons, it is a time to set new intentions.  Tonight however, reflect not only what you want for the next month, but the whole coming year! For the New Moon takes place at 8:36 pm EST about two and half hours after the Winter Solstice.

Besides the Sun and Moon in Capricorn, the planet Venus, Mercury and the dwarf planet Pluto are all so in this structure loving earth sign. The challenge is not to get too bogged down in the material world.  Yes, do focus on your goals and map out a long term plan. If you are feeling stuck look to the power of love to transform what is not working in your life. I know that may sound  “airy fairy” to some, but Venus, the planet that represent love and is also known by many scholars as the Christmas star is in a very powerful position in the sky right now. So go into the stillness of this darkest night of the year, call on the power of the love and listen to what your heart has to say.

If you don’t believe your heart can speak to you, I urge you to look into HeartMath research later. For now I invite you to use the power of your imagination. First, reflect on what you desire for the coming year and imagine that from your heart, a beautiful golden light is growing within you. As you breath in and out, see this energy expanding throughout your body. Let it move through you gently hugging every part of you.  Feel the warmth of this glowing light in every cell of your body. I like to imagine all my cells doing a kind of happy dance! Once your feel filled up with love begin  to extend it beyond yourself — send it out to your family, friends, your community and the world. Know your love is being of service. It is healing and helping people, places and situations to be their best. When you feel complete with sending your heart energies outward, once again focus on your heart and breath your heart energies close to you, knowing your love is always available to you — to guide you to the highest outcomes. To me, this is what we are here to remember….even in the darkest of times, there is a shining light to be found in everyone and every situation! So I invite you to take time to connect with your own inner light (love) tonight. To help you reflect on this special winter’s night light, I bid you Winter Solstice blessings with this poem:

Winter’s Sun

by Azmat Naushad Asif

There is something about the winter’s sun,
That aspires hope after struggle
The wait for tomorrow after
long cold shivering nights;
is the optimism attached
to the winter’s sun.

There is something about the winter’s sun.
The Florescence of the beaming rays
the calmness of the flowing sunshine:
convinces me about the warmth,
of the winter’s sun

There is something about the winter’s sun.
The tender hugging of the sunbeams
on the exposed numb body:
confirms about the comfort provided
by the winter’s sun

There is something about the winter’s sun.
Those for whom is the winter’s suffering
the warmth of the sun is also for them.
Relieving them that, a part of the
sunshine belongs to them
Of the winter’s sun.
