The longest night of the year is approaching, along with the tension between the planets Saturn and Uranus. Are you ready for the big changes they will bring?
December 21, 2022 marks the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. Known as the winter solstice, this is the time when darkness gives way to light.
Many cultures celebrate this day with their own unique winter solstice traditions. It happens at basically the same time every year, but depending on what’s going on with the planets, it can bring a very different set of circumstances.
According to astrologers, this year we are looking at the relationship between Saturn and Uranus. This is the one that will have the biggest impact on the zodiac signs this year. When two planets form a square to each other, they are in conflict.
Saturn rules structure and authority. Uranus rules surprises and the search for unfettered freedom. The struggle between authority and freedom, structure and the breaking of structure, will reach a climax during the winter solstice of 2022.
Some aspects of your life could change fundamentally, and each zodiac sign will have to decide how to deal with it. It can be painful for some, but also an opportunity for growth.
Special winter solstice horoscope for all signs
The winter solstice will finally be a time when you will have to reconsider the traditional approach to situations. Are you used to being the leader? The one who always makes the decisions? Now, it’s time to think about how well this has worked for you so far. Do you force others with your way of thinking? Are you running out? These are questions you will have to ask yourself.
Uranus is in Taurus now, so this solstice will affect you a lot. Although this can be a little disturbing, the sun will actually be in a very favorable position in relation to your sign. So, although there will be destabilizing aspects, the sun will also give you an opportunity to recover. This is a good time to reflect and see things more clearly. Accept reality as it is, not as you would like it to be.
It is a truly liberating moment. Now is the time to live! Free yourself and relax. Your life looks different than it did a year ago, but realize that’s not a bad thing. Stay anchored to the present as much as possible. It would be good for you, on the day of the Winter Solstice, on December 21, to write a list of things you are grateful for.
In this period of change, it is understandable that you will want to seek comfort in familiar people and things. The solstice, under the context of the square between Saturn and Uranus, will bring certain signs designed to open your mind to accept that good things can come from unlikely sources. Even if you don’t have your things and people around at a certain moment, a stranger will do you a favor. You will realize that you are safe and protected, no matter where you go.
The Saturn-Uranus square pushes all zodiac signs to rethink the way they normally lead their lives. For you, a question will come: how can you shine in circumstances that are not YOUR choice? During this winter solstice, you may be put in an uncomfortable situation. The question becomes: how can you turn an uncomfortable situation into one that allows you to shine? You will definitely be at the height!
A special winter solstice horoscope brings good energy for Virgo. This time, you will have a double dose of luck, because the sun is in a favorable position for you. Take advantage of this opportunity while you have it. Do things the way you like. Make your voice heard! If you’ve thought about asking for a salary increase, do it! If you were too emotional to tell someone you love them, now is the time!
The Sun will square Libra during the winter solstice of 2022. This can cause tension and challenges. It’s time to remember that the world is not just black and white. Look for the shades around you. Trust your experience! It is possible that others intervene during this period to change the way you think or change. You must not allow this!
The people or things that usually played an important role in your life may no longer be visible on the horizon. And, to top it off, you might actually find it a relief. This can feel like a moment of coming home to yourself. You will come to remember who you really are. Losing something will pave the way for a better opportunity.
For Sagittarius, the winter solstice will be a moment of decisive action. If you’ve been wanting something for a long time, the wait is over. Now is the time when you can do things for yourself that others have not done. Put your foot in the door and do everything you have refused until now, because the stars are favorable for you, from December 21 until the end of the year.
The winter solstice on December 21, 2022 brings a powerful moment of enlightenment. Basically, what needs to change for you is your perspective. You may have had a few hiccups this year, but now is the time to look at life completely differently. Your outlook should cheer up. Being optimistic isn’t always easy, but it’s time for a glass-half-full approach. Be the positive force you want to have in your life
The austere Saturn and the rebellious Uranus make you feel somehow between a rock and a hard place. Figure out what in your life works for you and what doesn’t. Then decide to build a new way forward. Make the difference between the limits that support you and those that enclose you. Your mind is the one that will decide what mentality you will keep for the new year!
For Pisces, this is a period of preparation, opening up to new possibilities and not getting too rooted in old vices or old patterns. It would be good to decide once and for all (and honestly) what you really want. Start thinking about the big questions, like what is really important to you, what are your goals and where do you want to be in the next few years.
