Planting Seeds of Presence

Planting Seeds of Presence

December marks a time of change and transition. When we get to this time of year we are starting to wrap things up and prepare for the next year’s cycle. At this time the energy is internally focused and feels like a slow evolution happening on a deep cellular level. The month of December is a blend of receptivity and activity. Finding our presence within this context will be our strength and our challenge at this time.

 The end of the month is the solstice when the Sun moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn. This marks the changing of the seasons and the time of year when we retreat and take a step back to reflect and contemplate. At the same time, a major Jupiter transit is taking place that only happens once a year, a theme of spiritual openness and a deep assessment of personal beliefs and perceptions will start to take place now. Seeds that are planted during this time will grow into greater awareness, learning, and presence to your inner light and guidance as the year progresses.
