CYCLES OF THE HEAVENS
JANUARY - CAPRICORN
As the nights lengthen and the dark reaches its culmination, the Sun passes through the gateway of the Winter Solstice and, on 21st December, enters the sign of the Sea-Goat. This is a place of inner and outer transition. Here, as the hinge of the year swings, we cross the nadir of the deep mid-winter and begin the ascent into the new year’s light. The mythic tone of the year shifts here from mutable fire to cardinal earth as the vision-quest of Sagittarius gives way to the embodiment and practical ambition of Capricorn. Entry into this sign brings us into the realm of matter, where the soul embraces the tangibility of the material dimension of life and delights in matter and form. Ruled by Saturn, this sign displays an innate understanding of the natural constraint imposed by living within the dense and immovable element of earth and the discipline required to flourish in this medium. Here we become grounded and anchored in the material world as we become aware of the requirement to inhabit our bodies and the earth around us. Capricorn confers an appreciation of the slow processes of growth and manifestation, and the principles by which forms – whether small projects or great corporations - come into being. This cardinal earth sign expresses a keen determination to work with these processes to create and build tangible structures in the world. Attuned to the processes of manifestation which bring forth first green shoots and then the proliferation of summer vegetation from the bare soil of winter, so too in this sign, do we discover how to plant seeds in the ground of our own lives and to diligently, patiently and persistently tend the experiences, projects and enterprises which, in due course, develop and grow.
