Christmas Day Rising

I’m not sure there is any significance, but I look forward to Christmas Day every year because the sun finally moves into my first house, beginning its year-long journey through my chart. When it gets out of my 12th house and all of the murky energy I feel with it, the world begins to seem a bit lighter.

The sun went into my first house today, December 25, 2010 at 11:33 PM MST. Whew!! Glad to see it. Glad to feel it.

I was already feeling some lighter energy because of getting past the Winter Solstice. Some years I feel like the new year begins at the Solstice, when the days begin to gather more sunlight. Other years, it definitely seems to be when the sun crosses my ascendant.

This past week, I have had a feeling of melancholy — a kind of empty sadness. I cannot point to anything that has changed in my life circumstances or changes in news, etc., as reasons for my somber mood.

A friend of mine who is a sensitive and conscious shaman suggested that many of us are “mourning for the world” because we are sensing big changes coming. I don’t think she was predicting devastation, but rather the fact that when we break-through into a new realm, we leave some of the “old” behind.

The sun will enter her first house on January 9, 2011 at 8:38 PM MST.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been aware of a “voice” (for want of a more accurate word) that keeps telling me my whole life is about to change. when I mentioned it to my son, he said he had been getting that message, as well.

The sun will enter his first house on January 19, 2011 at 8:50 AM MST.

As you can see, in addition to myself, many of the people I am close to have Capricorn Rising. One of them is New Year’s Eve Rising. The sun will enter her first house on December 31, 2010 at 7:07 AM MST.

Suffice it to say I feel big changes coming for myself and others. This year is a new beginning in a new paradigm. The year has begun. I hope your new year, whether you count it from January 1 or some other date, will bring many good changes for you.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
