The exact moment of the Winter Solstice in th Northern hemisphere is at 5:03PM CST today.
Today is the shortest day of the year - and the longest night.
Welcome, Winter Solstice 2014! Where the sun seems to stop in place, and is at it's lowest point of the year at the 270° point on the wheel of the zodiac.
Today is also known as the Yule or Julblot - the Winter Rite. It is a time when pagans would sing in sorrow and joy for the "death" of the Sun but with hope for it's subsequent rising again.
After tonight, the sun will begin its way towards 0° , reached at the Spring Equinox. The days continue to become longer until the Summer Solstice in the latter part of July.
The Sun enters the zodiac sign of Capricorn as it officially rings in the winter season in North of the equator.
There is a lot happening this season, which I will update you on in a later post. Or you can hear my predictions, live, in-person.
Until then, Welcome to the New Season!
