Greetings, and happy new year to all! We have some exciting formations this week that begin the official start of 2010. The first thing to note is that Mercury, purveyor of messages and communication, begins its direct motion on January 15th. I think we can all breath a sigh of relief! I am feeling the collective as it begins to make forward motions in life, as if the pathways are suddenly clear from traffic and delays. Wonderful!
We also have an eclipse on that same day, a Solar eclipse in the sign of Capricorn, coinciding with the New Moon. The day or so prior may be felt as 'the dark night of the soul' and is very useful for self reflection and prayer. When I say prayer, I do not mean throwing out our wishes to the Universe, as if begging for something we need. I mean prayer more aligned to receiving information about what will help us grow and heal, and about how we can help contribute to the healing of the earth. Trust that if you remain in this energy, what 'you' need will naturally come along.
In general this year, I am feeling opportunities for a lot of togetherness, for sharing, for connecting more with our neighbors and blooming where we are planeted. I feel Saturn transiting through Libra as being helpful in this cycle. Because of what has happened with the economy, people have been forced to self-reflect, to ask for help, and those who see others suffering are naturally reaching out to see what they can to do help. I firmly believe that we belong to each other; any programs that reflect this motto will get the green light, as we come to know each other in different ways and let down the veils of separation.
Best wishes for a wonderous 2010. May your lives be blessed with nurturing friendships, a creative aliveness in yoru daily life, and all that your hearts desire. Namaste.
