Welcome back to Capricorn time

So, last night was the Winter Solstice; the longest night of the year (in the Northern hemisphere) and the shortest day.  It is also the official end of Fall and the beginning of winter.  The Sun migrated into Capricorn something like 6 hours ago (according to the Tropical Zodiac, and from a geocentric perspective), so we are now officially back on earth time.  Home again, home again, jiggity-jig.

If you prefer the real skymap, we are entering Sagittarius time.  That would still work fine for me, because the real skymap makes me a Leo.  I am still entering my home element, no matter what.  You see, it's the angle, even more than the sign or the element.  I rejected that theory for a long time, but not now.

'Tis the season why all those Christmas bundles of joy for every Virgo boy are being born.  Virgo and Capricorn are a notorious match-up; perhaps even the most notorious of all synastry match-ups.  Do yourself a favor and google search "Capricorn Virgo Synastry" or "Virgo Capricorn Synastry".  You'll get about 10,000 pages celebrating these two as one of the best matches possible.

My cousin Justin would agree.  He happens to be a Capricorn guy married to a Virgo girl.  I think it has been 12 or 13 years already...

This doesn't naturally imply that all Capricorns are good for all Virgos, or vise-versa.  This would make us all perpetually confused, and we would probably kill each other.  This would subvert the key bedrock-partnership upon which human society is based.  However, you can rest assured that there is more than one ideal Capricorn partner for each Virgo, and vise-versa.

Just make sure no evil scorpions get in the way...

In any case, I thought I would share one of my favorite pieces of Astrological art with you.  This little piece by Kagaya depicts Capricorn and Virgo going out for a little swim in the ocean together.  It's extremely girly in nature, but it is nice to know that there are female romantics out there with some 3d modeling and rendering skills.  This is a lovely piece of work.
