|Keeping Faith. (@ home, 6/10)|
We have entered the shortest, yet perhaps the most energetically jam-packed, of the three phases of the Time of Transition. From 12/12 to 12/21, we are in the "final countdown" to our journey over the center of the galaxy, and the start of the Great Mother of all Cosmic Downloads.
The opening of the 12/12 energy gate synchronizes nicely with the energies of the New Moon; this is a Power*full time to set intention and pray over your intention until the Solstice, which will unfold with the first quarter moon's energy. Between now and the end of the year, in fact, this is an excellent time to release the old and select the new that you wish to receive; this dreaming/wishing arc will culminate at the full moon on the 28th, just in time to ring out the old muggle year and ring in the new! It would be a very good idea to envision those New Year's Revolutions now, because you are completely and totally supported energetically to bring your YES'es into reality!
On the flip side of this procession...Deep Stuff is coming up and is going to come up in this double handful of days. Do not be surprised if you are also feeling what Sarah Ban Breathnach so eloquently calls Divine Discontent right now: basically, if you feel like your life and everything in it doesn't fit, no longer fits, and is completely useless and restrictive - resulting in a major case of the Grumpy Crankies - it's okay! Every single structure in the old paradigm is being dismantled right now...some things are flying apart with alarming rapidity, while others are slowly dissolving at the seams. The old paradigm was not constructed in a day, and even with the shifting taking place in the timescape, it's not going to be revamped in a day, either. This is a chance to invoke Extreme Self Care - lots of hot baths (or showers) by candlelight, curling up with a journal and/or a good book by the fire, indulging in a bit of comfort food, especially if it involves chocolate.
If something is really sticking out at you and annoying you, if there's a part of your life that's really Not Working At All, note it. Between now and the Solstice, this is a chance to give anything not serving your Highest and Best the boot once and for all; after the Solstice, the slate will be clean for many shiny new miracles to enter your life.
There are some people who are not discontent in the least, and are really believing that this is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Congratulations - you've done the Hard Work already and are holding space for the rest of us to muddle through. Enjoy the spirit of the season and share, share, share the happy holly jolly! Magick and miracles are contagious, and most all of us will catch it sooner or later. :-)
I shall return just after the Solstice with Information about what happens next. In the meantime, enjoy the ride! even if you have to smile through clenched teeth!
