About our Celebration of the Winter Solstice & Grand Conjunction
Join ESC on Monday, December 21, 2020 from 7:00-8:00pm as we celebrate Winter Solstice and the Grand Conjunction! Lori Barresi will describe what exactly this massive cosmic event is and how it will impact our lives, followed by a guided meditation & ritual celebrating this new era.
The Winter Solstice
The winter solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year, when the Sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky. Since prehistory, the winter solstice has been seen as a significant time of year in many cultures, marked by festivals and rituals. It is the symbolic death and rebirth of the Sun. Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun's strength builds, and days grow longer. It can be a time to rest and reflect. This date is also the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, a time of going within. It's the fruitful darkness and silence out of which our soul's yearnings and new inspirations can eventually emerge.

The Grand Conjunction
The Grand Conjunction is an astrological event that happens every 20 years or so, where the planets Jupiter and Saturn meet at the same degree of the zodiac. Whenever Jupiter and Saturn change signs, the entire look and feel of life changes, too. The Grand Conjunction sets the tone for the arts, music, theatre, literature, entertainment, designer fashion, food, music, mathematics, science, politics, and the government agenda. In other words, everything!
But THIS Grand Conjunction is a once-in-two-centuries event!
For the last 200 years, the Grand Conjunction has almost always occurred in earth signs, but now both Jupiter and Saturn will align in the air sign of Aquarius on December 21. Furthermore, for the next 60 years, Jupiter and Saturn will only meet in air signs in their coming Grand Conjunctions—Aquarius now, Libra in 2040, and Gemini in 2060. Astrologers call this change to a new element the "Grand Mutation". (For more information: www.astrologyzone.com)
Some see this as the possible real transition into the "Age of Aquarius" that has been foretold for years, or at least when many Age of Aquarius themes will unfold.
GRAND MUTATION Significance
On December 21, both Jupiter and Saturn will come together at zero degrees of Aquarius, which is a highly charged point of any zodiac sign. Zero degrees represents infinite potential and possibilities. It represents a time where all things are possible and a new foundation is opening.
The Grand Mutation: Transition from Earth Signs to Air Sign Aquarius
It is interesting to note that both Jupiter and Saturn will come together at zero degrees of Aquarius, which is a highly charged point of any zodiac sign. Zero degrees represents infinite potential and possibilities. It represents a time where all things are possible and a new foundation is opening. On this day, it will feel like Earth is moving through a portal of energy where it will be rebirthed and hold millions of new possibilities for all of us.
During the past 200 years, the earth signs that Jupiter and Saturn met in have shaped and defined the world we currently live in. Earth energy is very tangible. It is all about building things, creating foundations, using the resources of the Earth, and focusing on material possessions. Under this earth energy we have achieved a lot, but the time has come for a shift back into balance. We need to move away from material possessions, from robbing the Earth of its resources, and away from creating the tangible to creating the intangible.
And that is where the air energy of Aquarius comes into play. Aquarius energy is revolutionary, high-tech, and all about creating things that work through waves, signals, and beams. Rather than wanting to create something tangible, Aquarius energy is all about the digital world: And we already have seen this become a large, new part of our reality, with the pandemic forcing people to use the Internet to connect.
Along with the world becoming more digital, we may also start to see a rise in community-based living. Rather than looking to big organizations or government, we may instead find the support we need from our own community members. Creating a sense of community may also feel more important or necessary.
Aquarius energy can also bring advancements to the medical world by encouraging alternative healing practices like sound healing, laser technology, and even more digitized healthcare services.
As the sign that rules over humanitarian efforts, with the two planets in Aquarius we may also see developments surrounding issues such as homelessness, world hunger, and equal rights.
Aquarius energy allows us to focus on what is good for the whole. Rather than focusing solely on our own needs and wants, we are able to see that we are all connected and that we all need to come together in order to create a better world.
