I know I don't need to tell you that a week from today is Christmas Eve---a very happy time of year for so many people. And yet, for many others, who have suffered deep loss or who are facing very large challenges during these says, the Holiday Season can be a very difficult time...and understandably so. For some people, everything that was important to them has been taken away...
There is so much happening this week that we may feel rushed, tired, overwhelmed and frazzled. In addition to the holiday season, which some people view with mixed feelings because they must spend time with those that they manage to avoid for the rest of the year. For others it is a happy time that allows them to spend time with those they love. For everyone this is the end of a rather challenging year and the beginning of a new journey. This week we have Christmas, the Solstice, Mercury is still retrograde and a powerful full moon.
With the solstice on December 21st and the lunar eclipse that precedes it, you may feel that a crossroad has been activated in your lives. Read more here. The opportunity to work with this energy will remain especially potent until the solar eclipse on January 4th, 2011. But it can be engaged at anytime you feel ready. This influence will carry you into the first half of 2011. Work with it, and rejoice in it. It’s a significant energy of final endings and new beginnings.
You’d have to be almost living under a rock not to be aware of the once-in-400-years event taking place right now around the world as we experience a total lunar eclipse on the solstice. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of collective energy surrounding this event that is available to you now.
It is a most blessed time to speak with you. Many of you are celebrating your traditions which create a great heart opening for you. You celebrate the occasion of the birth of Christ and you find at this time, it is a most wondrous event which brings you together with your birth families. It brings you together with others. It brings you into your heart and into a place of nonjudgment, of kindness, of love, of acceptance of others. It brings you into compassion, a willingness to understand and forgive others. It is a most wondrous time for individual growth and a most wondrous time for the growth of humanity.
I am hearing many comment that they're having a particularly difficult time at the moment, or, their friends are experiencing difficulties and restrictions that are troubling them. It's certainly not an easy time. I imagine that, as with all times, it's a very meaningful one. Smack on Christmas, it's not an easy time to have Mercury retrograde. Add to that the fact that it went retrograde (I often call it 'wretchrograde') smack on Pluto, Mars and the Moon's North Node (a karmic point of destiny), and we have a potent stew of ambitions, anger, aggression, desires, frustrations, disappointments and passions, etc. Life is certainly not easy for many, and this line up is bound to be pushing some buttons.
Note from Selacia: "This December message from The Council of 12 comes just ahead of the 12/21 solstice on the full moon when we also have an eclipse. That particular combination is unusual, not happening since 1378. In their message, The Council provides a process that you can do now ahead of the solstice -- or even later on -- to catalyze positive changes in your life. The Council's message addresses many reader concerns and questions about this cycle we are now ending.
December is shaping up to be a key point in our process of ascension and our ability to manifest Unity Consciousness. December holds links to the energy of the 3:3:3 Stargate of March 2010. In March we reached a turning point in our journey of healing where it became essential that we construct the concept of Unity Consciousness into something real and solid within our experience.
