The end of another year!
As we write this we are at the beginning of December and contemplating the fast approaching end of yet another amazing year and the fact that, impossible as it might seem, we are now just one month away from the beginning of 2012! We have needed several reality checks over this past year but this one is definitely one of the biggest yet.
The energetic patterning that was set in place during November, particularly at the 11 11 11, has created a powerful wave that will take us forward this month and on into 2012. There is a new strength and purpose within this patterning that feels unlike anything we have previously experienced and it seems set to bring forward change on all levels and with increasing intensity as we go forward into the coming year. Change is of course not a new theme for any of us, however with an assortment of planetary alignments supporting change on a grand scale this month it is certainly something we can expect to see more of.
During December we come under the prevailing planetary influence of the constellation of Sagittarius, which brings forward the energetic qualities of clear vision, clarity, focus and purpose. Esoterically, Sagittarius rules the higher mind and the intuition as well as inspiring wisdom and truthfulness. As we enter December we are one week into a three-week period of retrograde Mercury, and in between the partial new moon solar eclipse of November 25 and the full moon lunar eclipse of December 10th. 2011 has been an unusual year in many ways, so it will probably come as no surprise to discover that the unusually high number of eclipses that we have experienced this year are an occurrence that will take place only six times throughout the whole of the 21st century.
Eclipses tend to change the way that we perceived things and there is no doubt that this is exactly what we are being requested to do this month, both at an individual and collective level. The illuminating influence of Sagittarian energies will be encouraging us to re evaluate our beliefs and ensure that they are motivationally aligned with the wisdom of our higher truth. Mercury retrograde will further encourage us with this endeavour as it supports introspection, review and reassessment of all kinds. As Mercury turns direct shortly after the full moon lunar eclipse on December 10th be prepared to move forward and take action based on the reorientation and insight that you have gained during this period of review. In the clarity and focus of Sagittarian energy it is likely that it will become extremely clear what needs to be done next whether this is at a personal or collective level.
Endings and Beginnings
Reflecting on all this made us recognise that the moment in time that we are all now experiencing is indeed that time which we have all worked towards for many lifetimes and that we are so very fortunate to have the opportunity to be here making our contribution to the unfolding of the new Earth. There is no doubt that the gift of new Life that we all received at 11 11 11 is there for the taking if we choose to receive it fully into our hearts and minds and allow it to wash away what does not resonate with our highest truth. However, herein lies the challenge for all of us. Since we have free will we must individually and collectively make the choice of how we will respond to the choice we are now offered. New Life means exactly that, a new beginning, however we cannot move forward into the new, carrying ‘baggage’ that relates to the old energy that we have walked in for many lifetimes. In the penetrating focus of Sagittarian energy this month it is likely that we will see with great clarity what changes we need to make in order to align more fully with this great gift of new beginnings. This is not an energy that will encourage or support resistance so whatever comes up for you remember to detach and observe, so that you can chose to make change with grace and ease.
