There is only one birth - and this birth takes place in the being and in the ground and core of the soul. . . Not only is the Son of the heavenly Creator born in this darkness - but you too are born there as a child of the same heavenly Creator and none other.   And the Creator extends this same power to you out of the divine maternity bed located in the Godhead to eternally give birth. . . .The fruitful person gives birth out of the very same foundation from which the Creator begets the eternal Word.   It is from this core that one becomes fruitfully pregnant.     Meister Eckhart

        Each year the Sun cycles down to the Tropic of Capricorn, leaving the northern hemisphere in the cold and the dark.   Then, it reaches the point in its journey south when it pauses and stands still.   As if by magic, it reverses itself and begins to journey back north.   But those of us back north must take it on faith that the light and warmth will return.   We have to wait.  

        The Winter Solstice marks a season of grace, faith, hope and also testing.   The Baby of Light has been reborn, but first we give birth to the Light within our own hearts as we await its outer manifestation in the Spring.   We have to give birth spiritually at Winter Solstice, deep within our own inner darkness.   Who we are determines what we give birth to.   In the midst of the hounds of winter, we labor to give birth to the divine Child of Light within.   As Meister Eckhart says, the divine power of creation is also in each of us.

        Like the medieval tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, this labor is a test of and testament to our values and beliefs about Life. This is the time to look at Life and Death and celebrate them both.   This season, especially the 12 Days of Christmas which begin at sunset on December 25th and end at sunset on January 6th, (see my dream blog for a ritual for the 12 Days of Christmas) is a time when "spectres and spirits walk abroad' and interact with our world.   We get to see if we really laid our fears and trouble to rest, or if those dark emotions are lurking "in the halls and in the bowers' to haunt our days and nights.   While this season is a time of rejoicing and celebration, it is also a testing time, when we have to make a conscious decision to embrace the Light again as we begin another year of life on Earth. It's traditionally a time of divination, as we try to foresee what the new year will bring us.

        While many people are looking forward to Winter Solstice 2012, it might be wise to contemplate the meaning of this Winter Solstice, which once again has potent planets marking the Cardinal Axis - similar to what happened at last summer's June 26th eclipse at 5* Cancer/Capricorn.   Perhaps some issues you had this summer will come up again to be reviewed and released.

This Winter Solstice is marked by a total lunar eclipse, with the Moon close to the South Node of the Moon in Cancer while the Sun stands not only with the Capricorn North Node but also Mercury, Pallas and Pluto.   These energies will come into play when the Moon is eclipsed, creating new psychological patterns that will help us meet new challenges.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
