Cosmic Calendar

Month of December, 2012


    Last  month of the last year of a 26,000 year cycle, within which is also the culmination of a 5,125 year cycle coinciding with the dominance/submission, patriarchal system of social organization for humans on planet Earth. So many layers of endings are in the works it feels, and indeed in reality is energetically, vortices within vortices as the old spins out and the new world we're in the midst of creating spirals in. So of course this month has great significance, along with the "end of time date" last October 28 which was also important in this turning of the ages and our evolutionary path. 26,000 years is the time when the precession of the equinoxes completes a full cycle through all the signs of the zodiac. "A slow westward shift of the equinoxes along the plane of the ecliptic, resulting from precession of the earth's axis of rotation, and causing the equinoxes to occur earlier each sidereal year. The precession of the equinoxes at a rate of 50.27 seconds of an arc a year; a complete precession requires 25,800 years."( We come now to a different orientation with our galaxy, one where awakening to our place within the larger entity exponentially expands human consciousness, where we're aware of being part of a multi-verse of worlds within worlds within worlds. How this will affect our immediate experience is certainly a mystery still, but clearly includes much higher cognitive abilities, among many other probable major changes in our bodies as DNA codes have been going through transformation as well. Does this not all make more sense in light of the intensity of our experience over the last few years, as well as the quite distinctive speed up in how we perceive time? The Mayans, along with many other indigenous cultures, were tuning in to the larger natural cycles of the cosmos and how they manifest on our little jewel of a planet. PS to those worried about the coming of Nibiru and the purported reptilian race that's bound to take over our planet; it ain't going to happen! That is unless there are enough of those believers who focus on this scenario long enough to bring it about, and then I'm sure that would become an alternate reality those folks could inhabit, separate from the rest of the planet's rebirth and renewal.

    The artificial separation from Nature, Divine Feminine-Divine Masculine in balance, is in large part responsible for this kind of fearful scenario. This separation is dissolving as we speak, a far more productive and sweet place to focus consciousness in present time in order to be aligned with, and nurturing, the shift into oneness with our Earth Mother/Gaia/biosphere who gives us life. Unity consciousness is the place to be rather than entertaining cataclysmic, pole-shifting visions that keep people from moving with the evolutionary flow. To be fully human we must not only claim our far ancestral roots (some from cultures much more advanced spiritually, socially, economically, environmentally and architecturally than ours) but open heart and mind to the next evolutionary level. Between now and 2015 will be the most challenging part of this Great Turning as Pluto and Uranus perfect more world-changing squares; shaking out the toxic, dysfunctional, insanity-driven aspects of our current structure while opening up more and more space for a multitude of astonishing innovations.

    Meanwhile this month Saturn and Pluto travel in auspicious mutual reception (meaning each inhabits the other's sign) as well as a mutually supportive sextile aspect generating plenty of simpatico interactions to work together smoothly and effectively. Pluto digs in deep to expose all destructive practices, rotten structures and toxic traditions while discovering hidden resources to manifest a new, workable structure. Saturn adds its stamina, self-discipline and dedication to what's most authentically needed for the transformation to succeed, also assuring required resources. On the 12th Venus joins the North Node for guidance and support from the female perspective into a more humane future where human values, not the worship of money and technology, are supreme. This is a particularly auspicious aspect indicating nature-based values. Divine Feminine rises not as a superior alternative to Divine Masculine but as a necessary balancing of what has become devastatingly unbalanced. We barely know what Divine Masculine looks and feels like from our cultural images, but we surely know it instinctively wherever it presents itself. Goddess in all her forms and qualities emerge into yet another level of mass awareness. Female power is about transformation, a perfect description of Venus-North Node in Scorpio, so clearly illustrated by the magnificent Eve Ensler and her cohorts around the globe, in the movement they're promoting; "One Billion Rising". One billion women on the planet are being raped and victims of other kinds of violence, not the least of which is devastating poverty, while "One Billion Women Dancing is a Revolution". And it's on. A Yod aspect today involving Jupiter as the "finger of god" is expanding on themes of diversity and sharing through networks from that perspective, inviting and  valuing all input. Pluto and Saturn form the rest of the Yod in their transformative dance of evolution/revolution.

    On the 13th New Moon perfects at 22 degrees Sagittarius for the last sacred marriage of this 26,000 year cycle between Sun and Moon and with the powerful, light disseminating Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn Yod continuing to influence our collective path forward, while impacting each of us individually according to where this pattern plays out in each person's chart. This beginning point occurs along with the massive ending unfolding, and the choices we make now have vast importance as to how the next cycle begins for planet Earth. Sun-Moon trine Eris, the Goddess of Discord, who can be unmerciful if we continue to place ourselves where we don't belong. The message right now is to find where we do belong and commit ourselves to being the most authentic version of who we are possible. Eris also highlights the need for fair mediation where there is conflict. Our search for meaning has never been more necessary as the Sagittarius lunation inspires the courage to enter new, unexplored territory in our personal and communal experience. Mercury trine Uranus sparks brilliance and the willingness to experiment with new ideas and ways of expressing, new social organization. Chiron in visionary Pisces works closely with "real world" Saturn and Pluto to manifest what we focus on, while helping us with the discipline to stay on track. Choose your dreams well at this initiating moment as the vision we all carry now is what will come to be. Sabian Symbol for 22 Sagittarius: " A Chinese laundry. Making use of one's special racial-cultural background in order to survive and prosper in an alien environment." (Rudyhar) This image also makes reference to working within current limitations in order to eventually go beyond them. Certainly all possibilities are wide open now, all we need to do is stay in the moment and be willing to entertain them.

    From the 17th 'til the 19th the Sun is at Galactic Center, that dark rift of the GC covering a vast area in the Milky Way. This is a time when creation/destruction is more intensified as GC represents the process of death and rebirth, being the creation point our galaxy spun out from. A highly creative 3 days amidst the potency of the 12th, 13th and 21st of this month. Winter Solstice arrives on the 21st with Sun conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This is not a one point in time event that will change everything in a flash, this being such a vast cycle we're working with. It's taken centuries to get here and will take probably centuries to unfold. But this is a potent turning in the process, one where, again, our intention is quite powerful. The Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn Yod is even tighter impacting the season ahead with great potential, and necessity, for further major re-construction of our current reality.  This is not an option it's a given, so we'd best be willing participants rather than dragged along for what would surely be a pretty bumpy ride. Don't fall for the vague and fear-producing predictions that act as a distraction and energy drain in such an important time for human consciousness. If what we're focusing on brings up fear and uncertainty to distraction, then we need to shift focus to what we want to nurture and grow. Otherwise we're wasting our creative energy and actually adding to negative outcomes, and are missing the increased access to higher dimensions available to all.

    Cancer Full Moon on the 28th at 8 degrees illuminates the new path of mutual caring and nurturing and how to build a solid foundation for ourselves based on these values. Sun-Pluto-Juno opposing Moon and all squaring Uranus form a T-Square aspect emphasizing the need for new models of partnership and cooperation to implement the kind of social change we need. Transformation through the power of the feminine is reiterated here with the capacity to birth something new and beneficial to all. "A group of rabbits dressed in human clothes walk as if on parade. The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth." (Sabian Symbol for 8 Cancer, Rudyhar) Acting "as if" we are the creative, limitless beings we actually are at core is a profound practice for now. This is another lunar event to make sacred space for in our lives, to withdraw more form the cacophony of the outer insanity and be as still and quiet as we can be in our own beings. In this way we instinctively know who we are and where we need to go next.
