As the 4th month, April affords us the energies of a new foundation upon which to build new, more sustainable structures for a brand-new world. Yet we know that sometimes a building has to be demolished before a new foundation can be secured in order to build something more solid and stable. We began that process last year, and there is still much work to be done.
The energies of ‘4’ bring stability and order, such as the 4 elements that make up physicality (fire, air, water, earth), and the 4 sacred directions that orient us in space. In Cosmic Consciousness, the 4 etheric bodies (spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical) form the essential components of our existence (see the Lower Body System in the CC Corner). The '4' represents the building of new structures, and the presence of doors opening (and closing) everywhere. To build these new structures, the foundation must be balanced and even. Just as the 4 corners of the square form the base of a pyramid upon which the triangular energies of manifestation rests, the creative manifestations of the ‘3’ ground and stabilize with each decision and action resulting from the gathering of our intuitive ‘4’ energies.
As the 3rd month in this ‘5’ year of new life force, March holds the space of expansion, abundance, self-expression, inspiration, joy, mastery, and creativity. The active initiating force from the “1” combines with the receptive, germinating energies of the “2,” resulting in the “3” vibration of physical manifestation.
The ‘3’ represents the energies of the triad, the Trinity, a sacred triangle (trine) where all parts work together harmoniously, creating a portal that brings forth manifestation of desires by allowing the descent of Spirit into the mental plane. There, Source-based faith in action (Pisces) becomes consciously directed intention (Aries). The triangle is the ancient symbol for the element of FIRE. We talk about the creative fire within, that when expressed outwards, spreads warmth, light, and inspiration. Aries, the Divine Spark of Creation, is a Fire sign.
In Cosmic Consciousness, Aries represents the 3 o’clock hour, where we enter the mental etheric body and experience its power. It is the sign of Conscious Discipline, the place in our energy field where we bring in Love purposefully and diligently to activate the higher mind, which is Christ Consciousness. This activation requires focusing golden Light on the heart chakra, elevating its vibration into the higher mind, aligning it with Love, and opening a gateway for the divine spark of something new to manifest.
Welcome to February, the 2nd month of an already tumultuous year. February carries the frequency of the ‘2,’ bringing us the feminine energies of compassion, balance, service, diplomacy, receptivity, adaptability, courage, and unconditional love, all the elements of Pisces and some Aquarius too. It resonates with partnerships and relationships of all kinds, including those we have with all parts of our Selves. It can reveal polarities that separate us, or offer ways to build bridges across those differences through awareness, intuition, higher perspective, and heartfelt Love.
The ‘2’ represents duality, polarity, reflection, and balance. Duality is the perception of otherness through which the One can understand itSelf. It is what results when Source energies descend into the 3rd dimension. Duality provides contrast and differentiation; there is no Light without darkness, up without down, and so on. Electricity is the positive Male (yang) principle, and magnetic attraction is the negative Female (yin) principle. Both are necessary for creation. Balance between masculine and feminine energies produces ascension, which brings us back to Source, the Oneness behind everything.
