2011 Winter Solstice: December 22, 2011
by BARBARA HAND CLOW (HAND CLOW 2012.COM)
The Winter Solstice has arrived north of the Equator, a time of deep contemplation and mystical immersion following nine months of setting goals and then creating them in your world. [And for those of you living south of the Equator, it is the Summer Solstice, a time of expressing fully the goals set three months ago at your Spring Equinox.] Now it is time to consider the meaning of your work in the greater world and in the universe.
The Mayan Calendar culminated October 28, 2011, so this is the first Winter Solstice after the completion of our long evolutionary journey into Oneness; surely, this tipping point is very significant.
Many of you are also aware that many people are instead focusing on December 21, 2012, the academic date (G.M.T. Correlation) for the end date of the Calendar.
Some of those working with 2012 as the end date for the Calendar believe this date is the big alignment-the Winter Solstice Sun with the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius.
However, this alignment actually attained its closest point in 1998, so the 2012 Winter Solstice is not a big deal, since each Winter Solstice from around 1973 through 2023 is involved.
