The peak of the Sun’s summer journey is to reach the lofty mountain top
while the peak of its winter journey is to enter an underwater egg.
These ‘peaks’ of the Sun are its solstices, standing at approximately
21st June and 20th December each year. They are the Sun’s highest
degrees of Declination North and South (24th degrees) and are
represented by the Jacks of Diamonds and Clubs in our system.
The shamanic imagery obtained for these two solstice degrees differs in
both cases in that one is very short (just one sentence) and the other
is very long (several paragraphs). The short one is the winter solstice,
the Jack of Clubs, equivalent to the point of conception or the egg into
which the Sun has entered. The actual imagery describes “a golden mitre
with an orb spinning in space”. It continues: “the background is pure
white and nothing else exists.. .“, which does indeed describe the
feeling of being inside a cosmic egg. There is nothing to do but just to
Be. All time and space is in microcosm, “a sense of infinity and
perpetual motion” pervades. The Sun’s passive midwinter goal has been
reached. It is a time of peace and joy. A ‘halcyon’ period.
Although the moment of solstice is the absolute peak, the Sun resides in
this degree (24th South) for a period of approximately 22 days from 11th
December –2nd January annually, and, just as in the winter
solstice, it is an unbroken run - the only degree symbols in the
half-year that are not met twice on the journey. In the Winter Solstice,
the run of days on either side were once called the Halcyon Days, after
the belief that the beautiful Halcyon bird was nesting on the sea. The
term was later adopted to mean any period of blessedness and joy, but
its relevance to the Sun and the Egg and the Water fits in with our own
imagery well. ‘Halcyon’ means “conceived at sea.
In a general sense all North Declination degrees, all Hearts and
Diamonds, are ‘Eagle’ degrees. Each step in the Sun’s summer journey is
taken with a more outgoing dynamic-with obvious effects on its immediate
surroundings and the people encountered. Even though some of its images
are quieter or describe brief periods of waiting, it is all part of the
Sun’s active phase. By comparison the South Declination degrees, the
Spades and Clubs, are the ‘Fish’ degrees. They describe incoming
movements in the more passive journey of the winter sun that will
experience its effects inwardly. Although some of these have active
images they are still experienced as growth through allowing and
accepting rather than forcing.
