So, before examining other key standout factors and their contributing themes for the Winter Solstice chart of 2022, this first consideration includes the fact that the Moon’s position at the exact moment when the Sun enters Capricorn is in Sagittarius 21 degrees and 9 minutes behind the Sun, otherwise understood as a Waning Moon in the Balsamic Phase (revealing the image of a sliver less than half the size of the Moon in its Crescent Phase).
Generally, this Moon phase is indicative of themes basically descriptive of ‘letting go of the past and commitment to the future’.
More specifically, this exact degree of the Moon Phase indicates that many people are both taking full advantage of the lifted travel restrictions while many others, feeling disillusioned due to betrayals by people, authorities and institutions they once trusted feel angry and confused about where and how they fit in, and are turning to spirituality, forging new ideals and looking to new leaders in which to place their support.
This will give rise to both more authoritarianism but also to reformists and revolutionaries determined to take matters into their own hands, for better or worse, who will aspire to rouse followers to their cause leading to social divisions which will become evident early in the year. Of course, there will also be many who turn to research and study to gain knowledge and understanding from sources that they would not otherwise, both for the sake of deeper understanding of current realities and to deepen their sense of security by increased exposure to higher, spiritual truths.
