Solstice Energy and ‘Keeping the Peace’ at the Holidays

During Anne’s segment, she’ll talk with Frank about the astrology of the Solstice and what it means for us all. “Many cultures enjoy major holidays around the time of the Solstice,” Anne explained. “In astrology, the Winter Solstice arrives on the day the Sun changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn, so we all feel an energy shift from Sagittarian fire, passion, and optimism to Capricornian seriousness, practicality, and ambition.”

Frank and Anne also will discuss the longtime association of the Solstice with light as well as peace. “With all the extra tasks and activities that fill our lives in December, many people find the holidays stressful at times. Simply being aware of the special energies available at this deeply meaningful time of year can help us all relax and “keep the peace” in our homes, in ourselves, and with others—no matter how stressful life may become,” Anne added.
