We have just passed through the New Moon on the weekend, a time of darkness in the lunar cycle where we are asked to enter the depths of the unconscious and beyond into the realms of the intuitive. Here we enter the space of all that is as yet unformed or unrealized, in other words, our potentials and possibilities, but also our unresolved, fragmented and separated shadow aspects. This lunar cycle feels to be focused on moving into harmonious wholeness and this can only be done by confronting what is out of balance within us and within our external lives. The shadow territory of the personal unconscious can be frightening as this is the place where we keep our nightmares, but also our most powerful dreams. The energy at this time is asking us all to bravely enter our personal inner space, into the unknown and rejected aspects of Self, for it is here that we access the fertile ground of our greatest dreams and inspirations, the creative power of our deepest feelings and intuitive abilities.
This, of course, is the preparation for the changes we face as a collective in our world today and very much a part of the shift in consciousness for 2012. It is our intuition and feelings that will guide us best in a world that is changing and it is our creative inspirations that will bring forth the solutions needed for not only our personal lives but for positive world change. The journey is first within as we recover our wholeness and creative essence, our Soul Paths and our true heritage as Divine Co-Creators. When we are able to face and embrace our shadows, we reclaim our wholeness and can stand centered in our true personal power and inner authority. This is the only true stability and security that we ever have and it is time for us to realize that we are our own greatest resource – all is within us and the outer material resources are merely our tools. It is up to us what we will do with these material tools, how we will put them to use and what we will create with them – but ultimately it is we who choose and it is time for us to take responsibility for our inherent creative abilities.
Today is the second Pluto-Uranus Square, a series of seven such Squares that will continue through to 2015. Author, Arielle Guttman, refers to the Pluto-Uranus Squares as the ‘drumbeats of change’ and indeed, their effect is to shake things up, breaking down old negative patterns and structures in our lives and the collective, and bringing to awareness what needs to change. These alignments bring up the hidden, shadow aspects too and reveal what is corrupt, fragmented and detrimental, as well as revealing imbalances, emotional attachments, dependencies and fears. Leading up to the Equinox on the 22nd, the energies are challenging and volatile as we face up to ourselves and the realities of the world we live in. It can be brutal as we confront truth and the energies may feel harsh this week, however, this is a necessary time of realizing what needs to change, what needs to brought into balance and what needs to be released.
We are now in the final months of 2012 and things are moving very quickly as we shift into a new consciousness. We cannot go forwards while we are still immersed in the imbalances of the past or fearful of a future we cannot yet see. It is time now, in this present moment, to take responsibility for our lives, our thoughts, our actions, our feelings, and to come into balance. It is time to release the past and all that binds us to old energy and an old consciousness. It is time to heal, to embrace wholeness and go forwards into empowered, loving Co-Creation. The time is now!
