A New Era

on December 23, 2012

So….here we are! December 21st came and went and we survived and there wasn’t any devastation, except for some pretty bad weather conditions that has left many travelers stranded. Pretty standard for this time of year, though the storms were more severe than usual.

Many are probably now asking, “what was all the hoopla about?” What’s up with this whole Mayan Calendar talk? The Mayan Calendar was probably the most efficient and accurate calendar devised. How? Their proficiency in astronomy is one reason. Help from the “beyond?” Maybe. There are so many reasons why that to be able to say with accuracy, I would defer to the experts!

Right…..the hoopla! Every so many thousands of years — and again, some say an era of humanity lasts 5,000 years, some say less, some say more. Astronomers and astrologers alike have differing theories depending on who you’re reading — the World exits and enters a new Age, a step in another direction collectively. Generally, it is when there is a conjunction with the Galactic Center. In this case, it is the Winter Solstice. If one looks back at history, one sees how we have evolved (or de-evolved depending on your outlook of things).

And so the Mayans had a very good method in predicting when we as a World would go through a shift in consciousness collectively where we take a step forward. This just happened to be the last exit-entrance they were able to record for whatever reason.

And that’s it! As the Looney Tunes used to end their shows with….”That’s All Folks.” But not really….

Whenever something changes, there is a death and then a rebirth, as we have learned from our friend Scorpio. To have construction, there has to be destruction. But then our friend Sagittarius comes in and gives us the optimism of rebirth, of transmigration. Capricorn follows with the work, perseverance, and success of reconstruction.

We are going to feel some discomfort before we move ahead. There is a strong Uranus-Pluto square happening which brings a very powerful, almost explosive type of energy. Sudden changes happening with a strong force. It can leave us feeling shocked, a bit disoriented. This can be true both on a personal level and collectively.

We are entering or are in or have been in the Age of Aquarius. What does that mean? It is when the vernal equinox moves from one constellation into another. So in this case, it would be Pisces to Aquarius. Again, there is controversy as to when this actually is to occur or if it already has occurred.

According to the International Astronomical Union, they put it at the years 2600. Astrologers disagree because of the varying degrees of each constellation. But even astrologers are not in complete agreement as to when it is to occur or if it has. There are some who believe that the Age of Aquarius occurred during the era of the hippies since it is associated with harmony, trust, goodwill, unity, understanding, change. And there are those who believe that the end of the Mayan Calendar (December 21st) is when we entered the Age of Aquarius.

Regardless, my personal opinion is that the characteristics of the Age of Aquarius are present and the shift, the changes are occurring. You see worldwide how people are starting to let their voices be heard that things are not working under the influence of the Piscean Age, that there needs to be change. People are awakening to the realization that there needs to be more unity on a conscious level collectively and recognize who we truly are as beings.

“Be the change you want to see in the World,“ wonderful words by Mahatma Gandhi, should be our motto during this time of change. How we live and share our daily personal lives is how we can contribute to effectuating change. What we project onto the World is what the World becomes.

This says a lot about us today and our society. When we look to the senseless acts of violence such as the terrible shooting of those wonderful little angels, we can begin to ask ourselves what are we as humans collectively projecting that is creating this energy. Why are we obsessed with violence in the media and entertainment? Why are people feeling that they need to gain some sense of recognition, even via negative means? What do we need to change?

So let it start with you! Make a commitment to your practice of yoga and meditation. Set intentions of goodwill towards the World. Expand your awareness from self to the world.

So with that, I send my fondest wishes for a very Joyous Christmas. This is the time of blessings, abundance, love….all the things that the Universe loves to give! (Jupiter and Sag!)

And I wish you a New Year of awareness, a new Era for you full of new discoveries and healing!

With Love, Debbie
