The winter solstice occurs at 11:49 p.m. on December 21 and is the longest night of the year in which the transition from autumn to winter takes place.

The period in which darkness prevails, the days are quite short and the nights long, this is the time of isolation.

In an esoteric sense, this time symbolizes the "darkness of the soul."

A time when we should turn our attention to our inner world and indulge in deep reflection.

This month it will be easier for us to listen to the wise voice of our own intuition.

The winter solstice coincides with the passage of the Sun into the earth sign Capricorn.

As this sign is ruled by Saturn, the pagan festival known as Saturnalia was celebrated in his honor in ancient times.

The lowering of the temperature and the season of infections favors the weakening of immunity and the development of diseases.

During this time, the level of the body's general immunity decreases, which increases the risk of flu, colds and other infectious diseases.

Some people may even develop seasonal depression.

Seasonal changes affect the human body.

The symptoms of the winter solstice are most often felt for about a week, but in some cases they can last up to 2-3 weeks: decrease in motivation, mood swings, feeling sick, trouble sleeping, hormonal problems, headaches.

To prepare for the day of the winter solstice, it is good to plan the whole day.

It is recommended that the most strenuous activities be carried out until the afternoon hours.

On the day of the winter solstice, it is good to spend the whole day outdoors.

For people who prefer or have to spend this time at home, it is recommended to use essential oils and prepare a mini spa or aromatherapy - thanks to this, the drop in mood will be less.

The decline in mood in general during the winter period is due to the lack of vitamin D, the source of which is sunlight.

Because of this, people who are deficient are more prone to depression, not just seasonal.

During the autumn-winter period, it is good to supply the body with vitamins A, D and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

The energy of the winter solstice is also enhanced by the approaching new moon.

These phenomena will awaken our souls and encourage us to give new purpose and direction to our lives.

Jupiter, currently moving into Aries and where it will remain for most of 2023, supports ambitious goals.
