2012: I remember back in August 1987 when I was first made aware of the Mayan Calendar and Jose Arguelles and the end date of 2012. It was the time of the Harmonic Convergence. I was living in the San Francisco area, practicing as a professional astrologer and counselor, and often reflecting on the coming Aquarian Age.
So of course I made the correllation between the Mayan calendar and its ending of an old world in December 2012, and the transition between a Pisces Age and an Aquarian Age.
I was also aware at the time of Biblical predictions from Revelations of the end of the world and the Christ and the anti-Christ.
And 10 years later, while living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I was educated in Hopi prophecy, which predicted a fast approaching end of an old age and the beginning of a New Age of respect for the Earth and unity between peoples of different races and ethnicities. But this unity would come only after many natural disasters and world war.
It was apparent and still is, that there must be something really big happening in our world at this time, as so many different sources and cultures all believed we were entering a powerful and profound time on the Earth, when the world as we knew it was going to transform into a whole new world and age.
So ever since those New Age awakening years of mine, I have concentrated much of my work to this transition time here on the Earth, this time of changing our consciousness and lives in attunement with the approaching Aquarian Age.
And over the last few years, more and more people are becoming aware that the old paradigm for living on the Earth, one which believes in a survival of the fittest, dog eat dog mentality, is destroying our human family and our Earth and its creatures. Many have been changing their consciousness and lives in alignment with the Universe, as it opens up the gates to a New World and Age. They are finding the connections, not the separations anymore. They know their soul, mind, heart and body are all working together. They know all of humanity is of One Family. They know our Earth is our sacred home, and needs to be loved and cared for as all homes need to be.
Those on the path into a New World consciousness also know that those who hold power in the old world will not let go without help from the changes that come from nature and the Universe. These great changes shake up our old reality, help us release the fears and toxins, and open us up to healthier ways of being and living.
Many have us were severely challenged in 2011, especially around the Eclipse seasons in June/July and November/December. Many of our worst fears and old patterns came up to haunt us. We needed to recommit to our journey into a New World consciousness of meaning, wholeness, connectedness, and love. We have needed to more fully know that we are going through our challenges in order to be cleansed of old toxic programming, so we may more fully embrace that we are each on a sacred soul journey that is helping us to evolve our consciousness in alignment with the Aquarian Age we moving into.
Many of us have struggled in 2011 to let go of fear and doom thinking, let go of our old tapes inside our heads that wants us to believe we live in a world that does not support us and is not safe or loving. We are letting go of the notion that life is not a good place to be, that it will always give us suffering and pain.
Some have endured bodily challenges that have frightened them. Keep in mind that our bodies are also being shifted in order to be better prepared for the shift of ages. We are being taken out of old habits that keep our bodies toxic and heavy. The challenges in our bodies are meant to help us change our ways to more healthy ones and to change the vibrations in our souls and bodies. It is best not to go into fear and doom thinking that mainstream medicine encourages. Some bodily disturbances now will stay only temporarily, so do not hang onto them with your fear.
Expect 2012 to bring more challenges and changes, as we move more fully forward into an Aquarian Age. There will many surprises that shake up the status quo of the greater world in 2012. War with Iran will create a Middle East war that will threaten world war. The economy in Europe will further deflate, which will affect all of the world, especially western civilization. Climate Change will continue to bring weird weather patterns and natural disasters. And it is quite possible that extraterrestrial life will make stronger appearances that cannot be denied.
Many believe that alien life is wanting to help us to awaken to the crisis that our human family and Earth are going though, so we can be more proactive in creating a healthier world aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius.
2012 will be a ferocious year of change, and astrologically speaking the signpost for this transformational change will be Uranus square Pluto, which makes its first pass in June 2012, during an eclipse season. Expect spring and summer 2012 to shift us all in big ways. When Uranus and Pluto made their last major connection in 1965-66, it brought in the ’60s revolution.
It is best now to get into healthy habits that will support your commitment to keep a meaningful and wholistic consciousness. Meditation, healthy eating, communing with like minded people, going to healers and counselors, etc will give you a strong foundation that will weather the coming storms.
This is real! Our world as we know it is ending. A New World is being born. The Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street are the beginning shoots of growth into liberation from the old world and its controls over our hearts and souls. Be a part of the new and you will find your authentic self and a renewed sense of purpose. The old messages that there is something wrong with you will be more fully released. You were made just right and all you need to do is let your self blossom into Self actualization.
The week ahead, January 1 2012 to January 7 2012, is a waxing moon phase moving toward a Full Moon on January 9.
We have passed the darkest day of the year at the Winter Solstice, and moved past the Capricorn New Moon last week. And though we are now moving toward more light every day, there still is a lot of darkness. So do not beat your self up if you are sometimes feeling down now.
With the Sun still in Capricorn, it is a good time not so much to act, but to make long term plans. And then after making those plans, one can begin to implement the plan through discipline and organization. Through making these commitments, which can be aligned with New Year’s resolutions, one can better handle the nagging feeling that one is not doing what needs to be done. Capricorn time of year is a good time to put one’s life in order.
Wishing you a very satisfying and meaningful New Year 2012!
