The mystical art video Capricorn: A Meditation for the Solstice has just been released, in time for the 2012 Solstice on December 21.
This 10.5-minute HD video offers a peaceful, uplifting mix of spoken word narration with music, photography, painting, and motion graphics.
SOLSTICE BRINGS NEW SEASON, OPPORTUNITIES
This year, 2012, the Sun leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn on Friday, December 21, at 5:13 a.m. CST (11:13 a.m. GMT). This shift brings the Solstice, a new season (winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern), and new opportunities to build an improved and abundant future on a firm foundation.
ABOUT THE VIDEO
Capricorn: A Meditation for the Solstice explores the Solstice's spiritual significance as well as the significant opportunities available to everyone when the Sun enters Capricorn each year. The video's narration also provides background on the astrological sign Capricorn and shares insights about this sign's symbol, the goat, and other images associated with it.
The narration closes with an inspiring meditation to help viewers understand Capricorn's lofty potential so they can aspire to expressing this cardinal earth sign's best qualities.
To complement the narration, the video presents serene nature photography supporting the piece's winter theme. It also presents several colorful, original watercolors and oil paintings that help tell the Capricorn Solstice story as well as special motion graphics designed to convey astrological and mystical concepts. To ensure viewers enjoy these images fully, the video was created in full high definition (1920 X 1080) resolution.
The video also features musical variations based on the hymn tune Cranham by Gustav Holst (popularly known as "Midwinter," as it was written specifically for the Christina Rossetti poem of that name). This tune can be heard during the video's opening in a solo piano version; a full orchestration with strings, choir, and bells appears during the video's final segments.
Combined with the text narration, these artistic elements offer a complete experience that appeals to the senses as well as the emotions, mind, and spirit. In this way, the video speaks not only to the intellect but to the soul, allowing its mystical message to reach the higher self and convey what words alone cannot.
MAKING THE MOST OF THE SOLSTICE
Take a few minutes now to enjoy this peaceful, uplifting video. Let yourself be inspired, especially by its closing meditation and music. Afterward, allow yourself a few moments to note what new inspirations have arisen in you.
In addition, plan ahead for the Solstice on December 21. Set aside time to enjoy the Capricorn: A Meditation for the Solstice video that day and to reflect on its themes. Also, consider how you would like to mark this occasion in order to make it meaningful for yourself and your family, perhaps by planning a walk in nature, going outside at night to gaze at the stars, or enjoying a special meal with friends.
Whatever your plans, may this video enhance your 2012 Solstice experience, and may the day bring new light to all planes of your existence!
