As we move into mid-December we move toward a big transition.  The Sun moves into the gandanta or transition point between Scorpio and Sagittarius Dec. 13-19th. It is an emotionally charged place of stuck energies that want to transform and can sometimes feel a bit rough.  

The Sun actually moves into  Sagittarius on Dec. 16th but it stays in early degrees called the karmic knot or gandanta until Dec 19th when difficult energies and karmic lessons involving leadership, fatherhood, and deep soul lessons arise.

 In astronomy, this is also an area called the Galactic Center which is the center of the Milky Way galaxy and is located in Mula Nakshatra (Sagittarius 0-13.20).  The world is also moving toward the Winter solstice into Wednesday,  Dec. 21st when the end of the darkness of the year is ending.   Things may feel other-worldly this week as we move into the center of the universe at warp speed.  Pre-holiday depression can pop up with the long nights and the winter storms.  We will write about combating depression next week. 

Cultures around the world have celebrated the winter solstice with music and meditation and rest.  The solstice is a time to rest and honor the changing electromagnetic energies and re-balancings of the planet. There is a kick of extra energy around the solstice and sometimes we think we can run that extra mile in the marathon or run to those last 2-3 stores.   Plan this year.   Do not overdo it even if you are feeling pushed as this can lead to sickness and spoil the upcoming Christmas holiday and rebirth that comes with Christmas. Take time for extra meditation around the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Galactic Center, which is the center of the Milky Way is located at 3-4 degrees Sagittarius and is a powerful point that the Sun will hit on Dec. 19-20th.  For those of you not familiar with the galactic center, it is the heart of the Sun and the source of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy. In 1932, Karl Jansky, a Bell Telephone Laboratories engineer, was searching for the source of static affecting overseas telephone lines. To find the source he built the first 95-foot movable radio- telescope to detect it. Part of the static turned out to be created by the center of our Galaxy at 3 degrees of Sagittarius.  In the late 1960s, astronomers finally honed in on the GC (Galactic Center) with radio and infrared instruments. They were astounded by the immense energies to be found there. A huge Black Hole is thought to be at the center, about the size of a large star, but containing the mass of four million suns. The staggering amount of material being drawn into the black hole radiates energy at many frequencies.

Lynn Koiner describing the energy of the Galactic Center says that it is the: “sensitive and intuitive ray energy – it is sensitive to sound, color and vibration. It is not exactly sensitive like Neptune because the Galactic Center has a Uranus “feel” to it. When you experience a “hard” Uranus transit, it over-stimulates the nadis and the nervous system so that you feel like your fingers are stuck in an electrical outlet.”

On the level of pure physics, there are a lot of extra electromagnetic energies that will hit your system this week and it may seem like something out of a science fiction movie as you move into hyper-drive so make sure that you take it easy, kick your feet up, take a warm bath, meditate and relax.  The world will seem like it is changing in a big way this week.

Prepare for a new rebirth within yourself as the light of the Christ child is ready to awaken within you by Christmas and begin a new season and a new year. Happy holidays. Plan ahead. Take it easy and enjoy this special time.
