For those who live in the Northern hemisphere, the winter solstice might be the longest night and shortest day of the year, and to those who live in the southern hemisphere, it is that day of the year when the daylight outstays.
However, it also signifies that December days are ending, it is the last few days of the Calendar, but most importantly it is the sign of change, a beginning of brand new 365 days. This astronomical phenomenon is caused by Earth’s motion on the tilted axis, and by its orbital motion around the Sun.
There’s a saying that “ no matter which place you reside on Earth – no matter when the solstice occurs to you – it’s your cue to embrace seasonal change. And there are many things to look forward to and celebrate. The Winter solstice has a greater impact on your astrological predictions of the coming year. Let us figure out which signs are going to experience its effect the most:
Winter Solstice is the time when Saturn squares Uranus. Usually, when two signs square one another, it is a sign of conflict, but in the case of Aries in Winter Solstice, the Sun squares Aries and makes a major impact on the lives of Aries natives. It is a sign for Arians to be self-reflexive, and it is challenging for them.
It suggests Aries let go of their self-control a bit and move on. Another impact that the winter solstice brings forth is the presence of the comet named Chiron. Chiron is known as the “wounded healer”. It is an asteroid related to the karmic actions and memories of past life.
This bull sign will be greatly impacted by the Winter solstice. It is evident that the position of the sun is responsible for this natural phenomenon, and hence, the Sun is at an auspicious position following Taurus. It strengthens their intuitions and gives clarity to their thoughts. It then reflects their actions more clearly and offers them time to think.
Generally, Taurus are seekers of stability, the presence of Winter Solstice might seem unsettling and risky to them at first, but you will get used to it. It also suggests the defragmentation of old thoughts, devices, and beliefs.
Cancerians are the seekers of familiarity and homeliness in every situation. When winter solstice strikes the Cancer native, they usually find it challenging. It is because Capricorn is a polar opposite sign to them, and Winter solstice is the season of Capricorn’s.
It asks one to stop holding onto people, places, memories that you have already been over with. Cancerians are emotional as a sign, and this emotionally inclined sign is ruled by the moon. The moon, in turn, seems to be in transition during the Winter solstice, and the native gets influenced into love and romance. However, winter solstice gives them adequate time to think and rethink their relationships before relying on them completely.
Just like the sign Aries, the Sun is likely to square the Libra too. As a result, the Libra native might have to face a lot of trouble with their family and relatives. It will cause tension and put an end to the happy temperament of the year-end until the sign restores its balance in life. It suggests big changes like moving out, breaking ties, and many conflicting things.
It might force you to rethink your similarities with your sibling and ask you to restore the disrupted relations. It is a time to reimagine your life and have a fresh start. All these changes might disrupt harmony and disturb the momentum of your life, which you deeply care for.
The Winter Solstice marks the ending of an astrological year and suggests the beginning of the Capricorn season, and since Capricorn is a sign representing hard work, devotion, and discipline, it is the time of your luck to be back on track. If you are a Capricorn native or have some Capricorn placements in your chart, then you will experience a great impact due to this phenomenon.
It happens because Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Winter Solstice activates the tension between Saturn and Uranus the most. It is your time to celebrate, and the only hurdle in your way is your perspective, which needs to change as soon as possible. It asks you to manifest positivity to receive greater returns from life.
