Welcome to 2012 and the first AstroTarotChannel of this long awaited year…
So are we likely to experience all or some of what the abounding prophecies say? Or is it just another year?
It is human nature to want to work it all out but it’s very freeing just to be in the simplicity of it all and the simplicity is that it’s just another day…
Saying that this AstroTarotChannel is about looking at the energies ahead for the month but I feel this is a perfect time to state my aim with this.
My aim is to help us reflect upon and tune into the subtle energies around us, in order to help us get the most out of what we are being presented with.
One thing I don’t want to do is feed the anxious attached part of ourselves that wants reassurance that everything is going to be fine.
Everything just is…
And that is probably the strongest message I have had from spirit about 2012.
Try bring that into 2012 “Everything just is” no more labels of good, bad, right, wrong, stress, time…. Doesn’t sound so easy now does it?!
Whenever I was stressed last year about good, bad, right, wrong, or the lack of time, the message I got was that this pain was all down to human labels and they would be peeled off this year.
So we will see, maybe they will, maybe they won’t – in the external world. But you can be the change you want to see right now. If this AstroTarotChannel reached the whole world and everyone took it on board what would happen? Would it be that we lived happily ever after? Would it be that anarchy reigned supreme? Are we all at a level of consciousness yet that can cope with that? My human-side goes into doubt. But still I hear the whisperings from spirit that it is important that we just focus on ourselves being the change we want to see and leaving the rest up to them.
Leave it up to them! Now that is hard isn’t it? The very thin line of personal responsibility and trust in the universe.
Regular readers will know that this blog has three parts to it:
1) Tarot (there is a link to the tarot reading video for the month)
2) An outline for the astrology for the month
3) Channelled messages
Sometimes tHe channelled messages are so subtle they blend into the astrology and tarot. But channelled messages around 2012 have been strong for me – if you want to know more you can get a free copy of my ebook at http://www.inititationworkshops.co.uk
Hence this blog starting with more channelling than usual.
So how have we entered 2012?
Well personally – it has been a bumpy entry after a very harmonious and beautiful Christmas.
I wonder how much of that has been my own manifestation. I love Christmas but very some reason I just can’t abide New Year. It’s a feeling of delayed bahumbug. I have always loved Christmas- yet the past few have been almost as challenging as the New Year.
Last New Year – I must say I still flipped a little but I was true to what I needed and actually incredibly happy to see the back of 2010.
As difficult as 2011 has been for many, personally it brought me much progress and I am aware I am sad to see what has felt like a relative break in clouds go (topped with all the anxiety about the unknown -lets face it none of us really know about 2012.) I was maybe particularly bahumbug last night. What followed was a situation that brought up so many old feelings of victimhood, trngressed boundaries and anger that I felt a relief from all christmas.
This was not something that just occourred inside of me,but which an
outside situation brought about within me. It was bumpy and testing, and I felt myself click straight back into the old ways.
So I enter the New Year with a black cloud over my head with bahumbug written all over it. Feeling like how can I write this? If it feels for me that if I say “happy new year” :-) I may vomit from the process. Not because of me tuning into the copious amounts of alcohol floating around in the ether that seems acceptable or even more strange- fun to consume. But because I am seeing everything as an is-ness.
The reality is that some of you, like me will have had a great Christmas, and be sad to see 2011 go, others will be the opposite or somewhere in between.
You see we are already getting caught in the labels of good and bad.
As I wright this on the first morning of Januar
y 2012 I see now that what happened has happened to show me that.
I feel very “real” right now, and what comes with that is a groundedness and a gentle strength which is very calming (despite the fact that I lost that for a little while last night). And despite that I feel the need to be Gizmo and give birth to helpful gremlins if I am to complete all I need to before the weekly Cornwall -London -Cornwall commute kicks back in on Thursday. I do feel I have a new level of awareness of treating myself lovingly, and that the reality is that I can only do what I can do and I may as well do it with love and not stress. I am not saying that it is no longer challenging. I am stating that I do feel a new layer of a more loving, accepting consciousness coming through. This is very empowering.
Now- am I alone in this feeling? The astrology and tarot for this month suggest not. If ever there was a good time for new years resolutions it is now! Stating the obvious! But this year seems to have more support for strengthened aims, goals, intentions and clarifications, so if you haven’t yet done this, maybe its time? This is due to the personal planets being gathered in Capricorn, Aquarius and Virgo. Take your time this month with your intentions. It’s important to get them right, more important than ever I am being told. I would have thought that it would be preferable to have them set before Mars turns retrograde in Virgo on 24th. Yet the whisperings from spirit remind me that forcing ourselves to live according to the stars defeats the whole point. If you don’t have your intentions set by then it doesn’t matter. In fact whether you do or don’t this Mars retrograde in Virgo will have us analysing and going back over our decisions and actions anyway. It is all part of the review. There is so much change this year, the important thing is to give thought to your intentions for consciousness sake at any one time, but remember that the change is fast and you will need to be ready to go with the flow of change. Your intentions for growth one day- could hold you back the next. So don’t forget to regularly review.
The full moon is in Cancer on 9th. A perfect time to tune into your inner feelings- but remember to do so with love in order to connect with the highest energy of Cancer, and not fall pray to feeling swapped by lower emotions.
Venus moves into Pisces on 14th, which can be similar. What with that and the full moon in Cancer, we see a more emotionally in touch time that may have been absent in the first week or so. But Venus can also be self -indulgent as can Pisces, watch for victim mentality and self destructive behaviour- particularly with Jupiter being in Taurus- Jupiter can also be self-indulgent as can Taurus – if your waistline expands as your diet resolution goes down the plan don’t blame yourself- or the stars! Just review it!
Saturn is nearing the end of its time in Libra- although it is a slow mover. So still we will be feeling the theme of “karmic justice” pervading through.
Uranus is direct in Aries and can give us that feeling of driving ahead with new visions and inspirations. Neptune is Aquarius can also be giving us some pretty high and lofty ideals- all well and good- as long as we don’t berate ourselves if we fall of the pedestal we put ourselves on.
Chiron is in Pisces, so again we may be seeing our karmic wound around victimhood, and boundaries and self-destructive behaviour come up for another layer of healing- Oh how much sense that makes to me!
Mercury speeds ahead- going from Sagittarius, through Capricorn and into Aquarius, good for getting ahead again.
Where as Pluto is of course still in Capricorn, doing its long-term work around transforming our physical existence – oh 2012!
So the main message here seems to be that of self love, patience, letting go of judgement and just keeping with the programme- whilst being ready to hand it in for another at any given moment!
And with that in mind, I do for real- feel like wishing you not a happy new year – but inner peace, harmony and joy through every day of your existence… no matter what may be…
