On January 11th, 2013, at 2:44 PM US Eastern Time, the Moon is New in the 22nd degree of the sign of Capricorn. This is the first New Moon since the Solstice, and at that time, the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Pluto, Juno and Venus are all in Capricorn – quite the interesting energy package, especially when looked at in the post 12.21.12 context.
There was a way we were going to be, after the big event – each of us had a vision of what it would be like and I’m sure you put a lot of intentional force into that moment. And it has turned out that the holidays happened just about the way they used to, that the New Year came and that a lot of what you thought would or could change pretty much stayed the same.
To me, that is excellent! Because the way I see it, what we’re doing is finding ourselves here in the Earth plane, and in the Earth plane, things like a species-wide evolution of consciousness don’t usually happen all-at-once.
In my life, there is an interactive relationship that I have with something I call the Creator – could be Shiva, could be Wakantanka, could be God, could be the Field (I’m not caught up in figuring out the “right” way to know it) – and in that relationship is a sense that what I want, I get to work for. I can ask for whatever I want, but I have to offer my willingness to work for it.
Now that you’re going to be here for awhile…
Without laboring too much on the causes, I want to look at the effect of this “shift” we have been experiencing. In the simplest terms I have come up with, what is happening is that the boundaries separating our hearts are dissolving. Each of us has different experiences of this – for some people it is terrifying and their reaction is to fight back against it. For some of us, as we learn to express ourselves, it isolates us from our family of origin because they don’t understand. It is changing our lives and the world around us, for sure.
We’re at this point between epochs, between ages. We’re undergoing a huge evolutionary leap. And change never seems to happen from a place of comfort. Hence, for most of us, these have been very tensional times. We can’t take any baggage to where we’re going.
On the night of December 12th and the morning of December 13th, the next passage in the long song, the song of Love, begins. May you recognize your part in singing this song.
Every year, the last New Moon before the Solstice sets the tone for the start of our next lap around the Sun. In so saying, especially this year, I am opening a giant can of mental worms. Because this year more than ever before, “calendar consciousness” is at a peak. In order that I may speak clearly on the relative importance of specific days, please allow me to quote Wikipedia here: “A calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial, or administrative purposes…. A calendar is also a physical device (often paper). This is the most common usage of the word.”
In our eternal attempt to make sense of life, for as long as we’ve physically marked the passage of time, we have universally attempted to “organize” the cycles of nature. With more or less success, clarity or confusion. One cannot overstate the impact of this human desire, for it shows as clearly as any other thing the human impulse to unite with the Universal Mind. Simply saying that historically brilliant people have forever applied themselves singularly and with great fervor to this impulse cannot do justice to this deepest of passionate commitments.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them–that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” —Lao Tzu
The bow of the archer is pulled taut; the arrow is ready to fly. The natural inclination is to let go. Who can hold the 55 pounds of pressure required to pull a bow for long? First you begin to shake a little, then a lot. The aim is unsteady. The perfect moment has passed and the muscles of your hand and arm constrict. Now is the time! It is the moment in which we fully embrace our great potential.
As it is a lunar eclipse, and the Moon will lie in the Earth’s penumbral shadow for several hours(the lighter of the Earth’s shadows), all of the subconscious energy of our evolutionary intent is focused upon reaching our conscious, the Sun. The entire affect of this event will materialize slowly over many months as it represents the evolution of very ancient patterns of behavior that may include processes related to the reptilian complex, the paleomammalian complex and the neomammalian complex within the brain. The latter is the more recent area of development unique to mammals that includes language, abstraction, planning and perception. The oldest area within the brain, the Reptilian complex may be undergoing significant evolutionary change that has to do with instinctive behaviors=aggression, dominance, territoriality and ritualistic displays. (not that this hasn’t been going on for centuries but is being accelerated at this time)
