As the great wheel turns day after day, month after month, year after year we tune into the rhythm of the constantly moving planets, the signs and symbols reflected in our heavens.
It was at the end of 2006 that a few C*I*A Agents of change began writing about this turning mandala, with the idea of emphasising important turning points in the year that would work towards setting our collective intentions with emerging astrological signifiers.
10 years on we find ourselves at another meaningful Solstice, the time in the year when the Sun stands still at the peak of its northern journey, reaching 23° northern declination over the tropic of Cancer. It is this apparent standstill of the Sun, the 3 days of stillness before the Sun moves south again that has been celebrated for millennia. As astrologers we call this, the Cancer Ingress, as the Sun now is in the sign of Cancer, one of the four cardinal points in the zodiac, with Aries, Libra(Equinox Points) and Capricorn opposite. This moment, the Cancer Ingress (as all other astrological moments) happen at the same point in time all over the world and is therefore a great and potent time to align our thoughts and collective intentions. It is at this time of the year that the dark slowly begins to return to the north and the light slowly begins to return to the south, we celebrate this shift in the Sun’s journey as our guiding light and universal symbol of consciousness, purity and direction.
