This symbol is in the form of the infinity sign indicating a shift toward conscious integration of the energies of spirit/Sol and soul/Luna.


     [Let's get this out of the way right away.   For an explanation of the astrological "news' that has everyone wondering if they're not who they thought they were - and that 13th sign, go to the end of this article.]


     Every year at Winter Solstice, the world stops and holds its breath -" will Light and Life return for another year? We are blessed by having it so.   Each year the Sun returns and brings new life with it.   Ancient peoples and modern religions celebrate this return of the Sun with celebration and festivals.

One of those "sons' is called the Prince of Peace at this time of year.   He is called this at his birth on the Sun's return.   The Light of the World wants Peace to reign in this world of ours.   Those are our cosmic instructions.

     And so each year, in that moment of greatest darkness, we each secretly yearn for the new "light' to bring us a life of peace, a life of joy and a life of love.   Unfortunately, we've talked ourselves into believing that we can only find that peace in an "other' world - in another life.

     But two things happened during this Winter Solstice season that might have changed this old story. During the 12 Days of Christmas, January 4th represents the 10th sign of Capricorn, the one concerned with our social structures -" the structures that determine how we relate to each other.   January 4th was the day of the Capricorn Solar Eclipse as well as the last conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces.   Perhaps that day was the beginning of a new story. It was, after all, the cosmic New Year.

     The symbol for that solar eclipse/new Moon at 14*Capricorn is: An ancient bas-relief carved in granite remains a witness to a long-forgotten culture. The solar eclipse seeded this urge to re-discover the things that have lasting value.   The way these values or archetypes are re-discovered is through the doorway of the Collective Unconscious.  

     The story begins in Pisces, the sign of the Collective Unconscious, where the archetypal energies of life are stirring with new images and symbols, stories and songs. Pisces symbolizes the completion of the cycle of life, a return to the origins so rebirth can occur.   This past year its' waters were energized to birth new archetypal images, new constellations of life.   A few years ago when Jupiter passed over the Galactic Center (26*Sagittarius) with Pluto, I had a dream that I saw the Pleiades shining brightly in the daytime sky as another constellation disintegrated behind me.   A new story was being birthed into consciousness while the old one slipped away.

First, we need to understand the old story.   And then we need to discover our part in the new story that emerging.

     Jupiter and Uranus met up for their 3rd and final time at 28* Pisces: A fertile Garden under the full Moon reveals a variety of full-grown vegetables. This symbol shows us the power of growth that gives rise to abundance.   The image tells us that we have an abundance of archetypal energies available to work with and nourish us.   It is up to us to harvest these fruits by opening up to them consciously.
