A few days ago the earth experienced a rare astronomical configuration in which the winter solstice, full moon and lunar eclipse all occurred within hours of one another. This unfolded as the earth was moving through the galactic center, the long awaited position that is to take humankind to another level of consciousness.
This astrological alignment precipitated a flurry of blogging on the subject during which I came across the YouTube video of Vedic Astrologer Sam Geppi. The chief point Sam made was that this alignment is much more powerful than the alignment that is to occur on December 21, 2012. It’s to take us to our core.
Sam is not the first to make this point. Gregg Braden mentioned the same in our interview with him last year. It has also been noted that the Mayans themselves say that this window can be anywhere between 2010 and 2012.
Many astrologers have voiced the same theme – the time of revolution is upon us, but should be undertaken with compassion, not blame and anger. Meanwhile, the old paradigm finds itself in it’s death throws and, thus, fights back with a ferocity that gives the illusion of increased influence. The timing of all of this, unfortunately, is that the repercussions of the breakdown of systems trails behind the impetus for their destruction. While the energetic alignment has forced truth out of dark corners and people to stand up for what they believe in, we still have to play out the hand of the loss of the way of life we have known. The silver lining is that we will create something more beautiful from it’s ashes, a belief which I shared with my son, Stuart, recently.
Stuart was in his tiny, but sweet, apartment with two friends and two dogs, plus mama. The sun shone through his windowsill, dappled by the trees. Stuart and his friend Jeffrey were playing guitars in the few minutes before Stuart went of to one of his jobs. Stuart’s constant companion, Stephanie, was at the desk, writing. The dogs were tussling with one another and I watched on. There was happiness and contentment in this companionship, though there was hardly enough space to turn around.
After observing the joy they were creating I said that they should savor the moment as this may be some of the most beautiful times of their lives. Then, realizing I had put a limitation on the experience, I added “ Maybe not, actually. With the economy you guys are inheriting from my generation you may always have one another just to afford a roof over your heads! Good for you because you won’t experience the kind of loneliness and self centeredness our generation struggled with.” Stuart, Stephanie, Jeffrey, Zorro and Gigi had each other and their hearts were happy. Isn’t it the truth that, in the end, it all comes down to what we have with each other.
This isn’t just making lemonade out of lemons. I am suggesting that the repercussions of the breakdown of the old paradigm is forcing us to find our goodness, creativity, compassion and generosity. Thank God. Can’t wait. Let’s squeeze in together. I’ll bring the cake.
