We have been in a heavy retrograde period since January 23 and it has impacted every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s a project, relationship, life decision, or outcome that was would not move, no matter how important it was or how hard we tried, this period has brought much of our lives to a standstill. Like a breath of fresh air, energy that has been stuck for weeks has begun to move again and now we can start taking action.
11-11-11 was a special day whose significance extends beyond its unique date. It was special because the entire world shared in the hope, blessings and meaning of this day. Around the world people shared conversations that focused on enlightenment, possibilities and potential. But the world didn't end (it wasn't supposed to) and we continue with our life journey. Now that 11-11-11 has come and gone, we must focus on carrying the energy's momentum into the days following it.
Have you ever said that you would ‘never’ do something again, usually after going through a situation that didn’t have very good results? Maybe someone betrayed you and you said you would ‘never’ put yourself in that position again.
As I write this I cannot believe that it is already September and this year is nearly over. Some of us are looking with some degree of anxiety at next year, wondering what is going to happen in 2012. Is the earth going to end? Will all of our social and economic systems fail? Will we be annihilated through cataclysmic earth changes? Don't let the fear of what could happen be the dominant theme in your life for the next four months because we do have the ability to shift anything, including the potential for 2012. And in September we begin to step forward and integration is this month's theme.
The back and forth energies of October have thankfully ended and we are entering the relative calm of November, although two eclipses and several retrograde planets, including Mercury retrograde all month, will contribute to this slower movement. We will have to decide whether it feels stagnant or is a period of well deserved rest before we move into December and then into 2013.
I've been writing for some time that the transformation we have been going through for the past five years or more will soon be felt by everyone and that time is here. And others will experience this transformation through the filter of their fears and have to address their own energetic alignment and integrity. They will make choices that include us, or not....
The good news about this month is that it’s not October any more. With so much energetic activity, a Mercury retrograde, daily X class solar flares, multiple planets changing signs, and our need to de-clutter, clean, and clear our internal and external spaces, last month was busy.
Every new year begins with resolutions to be better, smarter, more successful and happier. And this generally lasts for a little while then we step into our old ways and the new year can become a repetition of the previous one. What happened? We set out with good intentions and yet nothing changed. There is a very subtle understanding that will help you create resolutions that you will be able to keep and see the results you want in your life, and it has to do with how you set your intention.
This month marks the autumnal equinox, which happens on September 22, a time when we once again have an opportunity to balance the energies in and around us. Right after the equinox is a full moon at the Aries point, which is 0 degrees of Aries. This is a powerful transformational force that will give strength to whatever intention you set for yourself. Use the period leading up to it, beginning now, to pay attention to what is coming up in your life to be balanced and then do the inner work that is revealed to you.
December will be another action packed month with lots of activity that moves us forward and takes us back, invites us to go within as well as expand outward, using what we have learned this year to create closure and clarity from the chaos.
