At 11.11 am (GMT) on the 21st December, the Sun moved (astrologically) into the zodiac sign of Capricorn. This marked the Winter (in the northern hemisphere) Solstice – the time when the sun seems to ‘stand still’ at its turning point; from now on, the days will become longer.

Kronos, of course, was the father of the Greek gods, and was also known as the ‘father of time’, giving us the word ‘chronology’. In the Roman pantheon, he was known as Saturn – the planet that rules the sign of Capricorn!
Over the next few weeks, as we move through Capricorn, I’ll explore the cards in the tarot that are associated with this sign... Watch this space!
The image comes from my AstroArt series, inspired by walking the Glastonbury Landscape Zodiac, part of the Alchemical Journey (www.alchemicaljourney.co.uk). ‘Capricorn’ is a collage: watercolour on paper, and origami paper. Prints of the cards can be bought on Folksy (folksy.com/shops/AlisonCoals) or by contacting me (see my Readings page for contact details).
