Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere presents us with a beautiful time to reflect and pause, before we move forward again from darkness to light.

For everyone living East of U.S. Central Time the solstice actually occurs on December 22. On the East Coast the time will be just after midnight, at 12:31 am.
Technically this solstice event occurs on December 22 at 5:31 am Universal Time.

A 22 Universal Day is a very fitting ending to 2011 as both numbers reduce to 4. By activating two ‘master' numbers – 11 and 22 – this event forecasts a time of
great significance.

In fact, the solstice date 12.22.2011 adds up to 11 as well.

Amazingly the number 11 is activated AGAIN next year on 12.21.2012, the date of the 2012 Winter Solstice and the end of the Mayan Baktun calendar.

Yes, we are entering an extraordinary time of Double New Beginnings and Endings… where everything we thought was so, may in fact not be… where our beliefs will reawaken, relationships renewed and our educational systems realigned.

Endings are signified during any big transition. In this case the Universal Time of the Winter Solstice is 5:31 am, which adds up to 9, the number of culmination and endings.

At the same time, Double new beginnings remind us to pay close attention to who we are and what we are here to do.

Of course, all signs for renewal extend to astrology as well.

Throughout 2012 I will be bringing you updates on major Astro-Numerology formulas as they occur.

Today's Winter Solstice Astrology Chart has the Sun conjunct Pluto. Pluto is the planet of complete inner and outer transformation, death and rebirth.

With a Scorpio Ascendant and Scorpio Moon conjunct the Ascendant at the exact time of the Winter Solstice, the theme of transformation is tripled and the emotional
release point magnified. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and so this planet's presence is incredibly amplified over the next year.

The moon's presence on the Ascendant brings deep feelings, moods, instincts, sensitivity and a feminine
balance to the equation.

Happily, the largest planet Jupiter aligns harmoniously with the Sun and Pluto. Jupiter brings boundless joy and expansion to the equation. And with Jupiter in Taurus the opportunity to ground and manifest your happiness by transforming from the inside out is greatly enhanced.

What an extraordinary moment we have arrived at! We are at the precipice of 2012…

No wonder so many people are asking “how do I want to live my life?”

This is the perfect time to investigate how you really FEEL — about your work, about your past, current and new relationships and about your surroundings.

Allow yourself to BE who you are and you will receive your answers shortly.

Change is good… it never moves you backwards, only forwards. Change is spiritual evolution.

Spirit evolves through change.

So trust in the process. No matter how transformation appears in your life, welcome the energy. The significance of the change will always reveal itself to be beneficial.

Love and Blessings,
Tania Gabrielle
