A New Light is Dawning


The Winter Solstice is an opportunity to focus on our long-term goals, stoke our hearth fires, and put some love into the big plans that matter. Light a candle in the darkness and tune your heart with the Light that guides all souls. This rebirth of the Sun king is a charged window to receive clarity about your priorities, and to commit anew to accomplishing your “missions” on this mortal adventure.

2016 has been a bit of a challenging year for many. A square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces sparked a rise in nationalistic crackpotness and xenophobia around the world, and also brought some revelations about this dark age of dis-information and denial that we seem to be in.

2017 promises to be a bit more exciting and progressive (but probably not any easier). Jupiter in Libra is opposing Uranus and Eris in Aries and squaring Pluto in Capricorn. The flames of revolutionary fire are being fanned as the embodiment of Mammon himself ascends to the office of President. Some shtuff is going to hit some fans this year, and the only guarantee is that it’s going to be weird, and it’s going to move fast. Certain aspects of our collective future aren’t looking so bright, and the big question on many lips is: How are we going to find the power of the people?

The gathering of many nations to protect our waters at Standing Rock, and the greed-sponsored military apparatus opposing this movement is an important symbol for this coming year. The Indigenous Soul of humanity is reawakening in many hearts now. Listen for the call, and do not hesitate. The time for conscientious and effective solidarity in action has arrived (Note: This YEAR- maybe not right this minute- see below).

Mercury just went retrograde in Capricorn… conjunct with Pluto, lord of the underworld. This period (retrograde 12/19 – 1/8) is inviting us to question our definitions of power and control, and to revisit some times in the past when we misused our power (or had our power taken away inappropriately by another). See what old ghosts arise (or maybe send you Facebook friend requests) and “sit down for tea” with them in your journal. Watch the power struggles that arise this holiday season, and know there’s a deeper teaching hidden in these debacles.

How can you more fully step into integrity in your life? What unforgivable violations need to be forgiven for you to find more of your strength? What hidden regrets about not owning your power once upon a time are keeping you from participating and sharing your gifts now? This is a period of reflection that will include some big aha’s about long-standing patterns that limit your effectiveness.

Don’t get too hung up on the old wounds you notice now. Release all the regrets you can as you honor your past, and prepare the altar of your heart to receive more of the “new” light of transformational revolution that is dawning.

May the Light of Divine Guidance illuminate your path,


Saleem Adam Wolter
