It's The First Day Of Winter & There's So Much In Store For Your Zodiac Sign

by Valerie Mesa

Winter has arrived, and it doesn't whether you believe in the symbolism behind the four seasons, or simply prefer going with the flow. Change is the only thing that's constant, and your winter solstice 2020 horoscope is foreshadowing an era of progression and revolution. Though we all know that Rome wasn't built in a day, it doesn't hurt to hope for the best. In the meantime, and in honor of the first day of winter, let's take a closer look at this year's winter solstice.

Given that the winter solstice marks the day with the least amount of daylight and longest period of darkness in the Northern Hemisphere, do you believe you're prepared to journey through this incredibly grim and bitterly cold season? Sounds dramatic, but in all honesty, there's a whole lot more to the winter solstice than you think. A heavenly portal leading you toward a brand new cycle, the ancients used to prepare for this time of year for months at a time. This was the only way they'd prepare for the harsh weather ahead.

This year's winter solstice occurs on Monday, Dec. 21, 2020 at 5:02 a.m. EST. What's even more serendipitous about this day is, Jupiter and Saturn will meet in the rebellious sign of Aquarius for The Great Conjunction for the first time in over 600 years. More than often referred to as the "Age of Aquarius," this celestial occurrence marks the beginning of social and political change. It foreshadows the emerging of a newborn civilization and the rise of visionaries, mystics, and prophets.

So in addition to opening your heart and mind to the lessons brought to you by Capricorn season, this is an opportunity for you to step into the future with hope, spirit, and humanitarian ideals. Here's what this very important day has in store for you zodiac sign:
