So, are we having fun yet?
I don't know about anyone else, but I thought the (lunar) month we just finished was most fascinating. The gist of my "adventure" was stepping into the Present Moment with the knowledge that I am leading the Priestess Life I had been desiring to live, Right Now. It doesn't look at all like I was expecting - but it is as deep and juicy and rich and vibrant as was promised! And it also puts my life into a lovely perspective...there is nothing "wrong" in how everything is unfolding, and all is indeed well, despite occasional thoughts and appearances to the contrary!
I mention this last bit of "Nothing's wrong, all's well," because in the next few months, many of us are going to be using that as our mantra for the near future. The "main event" for 2011 is about to unfold in the skies above us, just in time for the usual energy surge provided by the Equinox. The Grandfathers of Space and Time will be opening a gate on March 11th, and the Grandmothers will march through it to spread their message of Tough Love.
The "Grandfathers" I'm referring to are Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is the first of the so-called Sky Gods (yep, older than Yahweh, though not by much!), so we can call him the God of Space, as in "3-D space." Saturn, aka Kronos, is none other than Father Time, as in "Linear time." (We get the word chronology from Kronos, you see.) So as we are preparing to transcend conventional Space and Time, here are the Grandfathers opening the gate which will take us through to "the other side." I can see it's a gate because Uranus is going to be in the sign of Aries, and Saturn is in the sign of Libra - directly opposite each other in the heavens! Let us acknowledge them with gratitude as they take one final bow. The Collective Agreements of "space" and "time" have served us well; now we shall be making some new Agreements! :-)
Let me also take one moment to praise all aspects of Divinity that Saturn is standing in Libra while all of these changes are unfolding! Any other sign would have given us quite a wilder ride, as if this ride wasn't wild enough already; trust me on this! (Someday I'll discuss the "Saturn Return," and if you don't already know what that means, you'll have a very good grasp of things afterwards. Then you too might praise all aspects of Divinity that Saturn is located where he is!) ;-)
As for the Grandmothers, I invite you to sniff around a bit. Googling "13 Indigenous Grandmothers" or "Little Grandmother" would be a pair of excellent starting points. (Yes, I know there's some controversy, especially around Little Grandmother, right at the moment. Listen to her messages first, and see if they resonate within you...then choose whether or not you will "follow" her.) They, and several others, are the Voices of the Divine Feminine right now. They are conveying a message of Tough Love: in order for us to evolve, we need to face the "inconvenient truths" in our lives and make different choices. "Business as Usual" isn't going to cut it any longer. How we choose to act, and the actions we choose to take, are up to us, but living in a different way - a more sustainable way - is absolutely necessary and essential if we are to complete the Ascension process. This is evident in the news that's floating all around us: the Power-Over Dominators' paradigm is crumbling before our eyeballs, and not a moment too soon!
To sum up:
March 4th. New Moon. The energies that have been pooling together through January and February are beginning to move in earnest; we can now feel the Quickening pulse that went out at Imbolc!
March 11th. The Grandfathers open the gate. (Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra)
March 21st. Equinox. Power Boost!
With the opening of the gate by the Grandfathers, the next six months will feature significant and very visible activity. Soulquakes will increase in intensity, as the Mass Awakening unfolds across the world. This "first wave" will culminate just before the next Equinox...and guess when that is? Yup, 9/11/11! Needless to say, circle your calendars for some heavy-duty ceremony on that date! This has the potential to be the greatest of all Healingways!
The "second wave" will stretch from 9/11/11 to 11/11/11 - the entry into what I've been advised to call The Diamond Year, and the beginning of the Great Time of Transition that has been prophesied. The Numbers are coming together, and they're bringing massive energy with them! Are you feeling me? ;-)
For the next several months, if you start feeling at all spacey or overwhelmed, Hie Thee Into Nature! I cannot emphasize that point enough! Mother Earth will happily cradle you in Her arms as you get out into fresh air and sunshine and reconnect with the Authentic.
This reconnection will feel ridiculously easy, and there's an excellent reason for that: The "new" reality, the "true" reality, is the Natural World! The Collective Agreement we've come to call "civilization" is the illusion; that's why it seems to be (and IS) dissolving. Great Mama Gaia isn't going to explode, or dissolve, or anything like that. She is simply calling Her Children (that's humanity) back home, back to a simpler, Natural Way of Life. The significant question is, How many of us will actually hear and heed Her call? That is to be determined...and we've begun to find the answer.
Listen to your heart. Are you hearing the call to Come Home to Mother?
