I haven't felt inspired to write about the Equinox until now, several hours after it was exact. The Spring Equinox/Autumn Equinox (Southern Hemisphere) is the beginning of The Astrological Calender, so Happy New Year!!!
Today feels very new to me. When something new arrives we react in different ways depending on our expectations and past experiences which have established how stuck or open to change we are in the moment of it's arrival.
There are as many ways to interpret a chart as there are astrologers, and my way is more energetic than intellectual. What I write here is my translation of the feelings and themes that are activated in me as I look into the chart...
The influx of challenges and change will continue, and it is my feeling that anything could happen, but we know that, it's 2012!!!
The Astrological New Year begins with a grounding force that inspires me to think that whatever we say or think will come to be in a more powerful way than before. We are laying down our own foundations, the training wheels are off, but not everybody is ready for the responsibility!
Although we have been told before that we create our reality and experience from our thoughts, now is a time when those who have doubted their power will very clearly see that this is so, and those who fear it, will have it magnified and reflected back to them in bigger and bigger ways.
Actually, everything is being magnified and reflected in big ways. The more loving and gentle we are with ourselves and the more we trust that a part of us knows exactly what we are doing, the more comfortable this year will be.
You may find yourself asking if your experiences of yourself and others are a reflection of you, or smoke and mirrors at play, but in time you will discover that it is all one. This may sound a bit cryptic but if you haven't already lived through experiences that involve lessons of oneness, you soon will.
It is my feeling that intuitive and psychic gifts will awaken in many more of us in many ways, and strengthen in those with awareness of them. This time could be confusing. There will be so much more information available to us on layers of our being that we may not have been aware of before, and if we don't have our mental and emotional filing system in order, everything could feel totally out of control in a way never before imagined. Listening to or making music, dancing, meditation and contemplation are ways to alleviate the confusion, but at the very least, make some time to be alone.
Movies or themes of our lives in all directions of time will play out in some way. These may come as thoughts, feelings, experiences, dreams, hallucinations, visions...your belief system will determine how it plays out for you. This is not to stir things up for the fun or hell of it, rather, it is an opportunity to heal the past and choose which path you most wish to follow from here and now.
Your belief systems are being challenged in order to create ones that serve you from now. To lay foundations not rooted in fear try and be the observer of any drama. The more you are amused by what you have created, the less likely you are to re-live the old and painful, and re-create it!
Many will experience the feeling that everything is for them. Some will feel unworthy, others will lap it up, but either way, it is all about you. Your story, your thoughts, your experiences, they are all about you. Don't worry about everyone else, as they are also experiencing themselves on centre stage, the star, the director, the writer, the chorus, the set creator, and the audience. "It's your party and you can cry if you want to," but laughing and playing is also an option, and woohooing yourself is an awesome and liberating thing to do. Whatever you choose, know that a part of you is enjoying the experience even if it doesn't feel that way.
For many of us this is like a walking on water time. We are moving into being all that we are now, and the impossible and hidden is becoming possible and visible. The hard work has paid off and the party really is in full swing. It is possible to have fun and be at peace with yourself while facing challenges, because we understand how we create stories, their purpose, and how to be the observer, the creator and the player without losing ourselves in any role. "Knowing thyself" has become reality, but this is only the beginning!
