We are in for an interesting time ahead and I really wanted to do some research with my favourite skywatchers to help you make the most of the coming period.
To begin with, there’s been lots of what are loosely called Ascension symptoms. If you’ve been wiped out with fatigue, know you are not alone. Cleansing illnesses – stomach wogs and flus have been giving people an opportunity to cleanse and the dream time has been very busy, making people tired when they wake up. There’s also been more physical challenges like bumps, lumps and cell changes. Many of these can be dissolved through simple and heart felt forgiveness.
We are also seeing many more animals leaving us for many reasons – suddenly, sadly, opening hearts with grief and loss, and leaving a trail of lessons from words which should not have been spoken, angers which could have been better directed, and other human guilts making the humans strive to be better. And others have just left because it was their time and they are sensing the pull to the Summer Land or across the Rainbow Bridge, with the increasing intensity of the 2012 Phenomenon. Please know the animals don’t want you to feel guilty or feel bad or grieve. They want you to honour their lives with celebration and the most important thing you can do is raise your vibration. Keep your heart open. Shine. This is what they want for you.
It’s not easy when their beauty winks out, leaving us berefit. Alone. Wondering. But this, then, becomes a practise in surrender, non-attachment and loving deeply and fully in every sense of that word.
We are now under the influence of Mercury retrograde, intensifying the Christmas madness and communication. So if you feel yourself getting frazzled, please take a breath and go outside and ground in nature. As Anne Hassett says our film This Sacred Earth – “Go hug a tree!” This really kicks in on December 10, but we feel its influence now.
Then we have the 12:12 gateway on December 12th — another opportunity for growth and light downloads making way for the full moon in Gemini/Lunar eclipse on December 21 and the Solstice on December 22.
Introspection is called for. So it is a time for completion of the old and celebration of the new. Get yourself to a sacred site or portal or place in the garden or on the beach or in the bush – somewhere where you can access the hands of the Mother and let them embrace you.
Eric says that the influence means that everything has the potential to be doubly stressy – so do what you can to be calm, de-stress, be aware of the chaos of swirling energies. Soluntra says the same.
At the same time the influence is on us to really step into our authentic life. To stop “resisting living” and to design a life for the future.
I really feel that one strongly, and have been wrestling with it for some time. I know what I want, but things have been in the way. Now new influences have come in to really help and I am getting very clear and wildly creative. It’s no co-incidence that we are re-designing my website right now. After much thought I’ve decided what I want is to create a portal for the new world, this new time, and my speciality is my innate gift with animals, nature and the Otherworld. My new website will be a legacy, a trail for others to follow who want to have extraordinary relationships with animals, and to heal them and keep them healthy in this new time. We want to create a place for all of you to come and “meet” each other and talk animals and spirituality all you want. As the times continue on toward 2012, we all need our tribes and community. We need connection with like minded souls.
And I really want my wild elf self to break free and give you all a good laugh to help you raise your vibration – because this is a key to getting where we are going.
The good news, according to Eric, is that there are “two conjunctions that are opening the way to a new world.” He say that, “One is Chiron conjunct Neptune, which is about clarifying your vision for your life. The other is Jupitor conjunct Uranus, which is about feeding that vision with new ideas and information.”
So he encourages us to “consciously ride this once-in-a-lifetime astrology to a truly creative destination.”
At the same time, we are seeing the rise of the deep feminine in 2011, the end of the dark masculine archetype, and the opportunity to come into a beautiful balance with the union of masculine and feminine within us.
Soluntra says: “Be the anchor you truly are and hold the higher frequencies as we move beyond the illusion. .. this eclipse is a powerful doorway of healing and unification and journeying through the Galactic centre and experiencing the new creation. The Galactic Centre is accessed through the stillness within where all is manifest, the crossover point within and without.”
She says the energies will be intense, so again, grounding in nature is a good idea. Take care of yourselves!
So from this intense time of inner work, reach out with joy and celebration at the solstice! This is an important time for nature-based spirituality and here in Australia, we’ll be enjoying the longest day of the year. Party!
The time between eclipses will be edgy, so really be kind to yourself until January 4, when we have another eclipse. Then you can get back to normal (just kidding – being kind to yourself needs to become a habit!). But the good news is that for the first time in several decades, there are no retrograde planets from December 29. So we will have a lovely break on one level.
Be mindful of how the changes affect you, and know that they do, and that this is all part of the 2012 Phenomenon. Be aware that it’s time to master stillness and your emotional state, deal with stress and use the influences to best advantage rather than floundering in a sea of chaos.
Interesting is this concept of creating for yourselves the destiny of your dreams. Think about that this season. What makes you truly happy? I know I have said this over and over again, but now is truly the time to step into who you are becoming and being all you can be. If you are resonating at a high level, thinking creatively outside the box, then you can create a lifestyle that feeds your upward frequency and this in turn helps you manifest. You need peace, joy and love. What makes you feel nurtured and fed?
I think about it in terms of what fills me with passion? What makes my heart pound? What does my soul yearn for? What inspires me? But also what is easy, fun and ticks all the boxes of my personal set of needs? For me family, nature, animals and self-expression are the four big ones, and I’m having fun really getting boldly creative as to how that works for us all. So get going, be creative, get out of your mind and into your heart.
Have a very happy solstice, a productive Full Moon Eclipse, and a quiet, stress-free Christmas!
