Winter Solstice

In Archeptyes of Astrology, Ena Stanley writes about the significance of the Winter Solstice:

“Winter is the most obvious time of transition in our northern hemisphere. It is a time when life goes dormant, becomes introspective, and dies–or gives the impression of death. However, there is not a true death taking place, but rather there is much transpiring. The activity that is happening is the preparation for the ultimate harvest, which will take place the next autumn. This process is done in darkness, either the darkness from the waning Sun, or the darkness of decomposition. This can easily be metaphoric of the executive of the company or country, sitting long and often dark hours in the office, breaking down old ideas, pondering the possibilities of new life, and weighing what is productive and what must be completely discarded. To the observing eye, it appears nothing is happening; but the future of life itself is coming about.”
