I’ve been looking at the chart for the new Solar Year this morning! I’ve been in awe of what I see as elemental beauty and magic coming this year! The elements around us are stirring with aliveness and magic. They are here to ally with us and we with them. The elements are our key and will be on center stage. The Earth, her and our air, water, trees, rocks and all creatures great and small. Earth signs are working their magic on us and through us this year ahead!
The New Solar Year ahead; (we call it 2016): is rooted in a Grand Trine in Earth, with Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo, calling us into our greatness, our expanded selves and our further walking into our destinies and callings, expanding, expanding, opening to grace, abundance and magic in practical, earth-rooted, yet-magical-ways. The magic will be in the ground, under our feet and coming through us into form.
HAPPY NEW SOLAR YEAR!!!
This year: 2016 (number turning still to come) : is grounded in Earth. With a Grand Trine in Earth, Elemental Magic is at a peak this year. We can get more accomplished by merging with elemental energies and asking for their assistance, than spiritual paths that take us away from the earth. This year, there is a call to bring our spiritual path, down to the earth. Into the dirt, rocks and water here. There is spiritual presence down in the earth, as well as in the heavens! And the more we bring our spirit into the rocks, plants, trees and animals right around us, the more we will feel the animated interconnected magic of the elemental earth that is rising this year! This year: grounding spirit into rock, and Heaven into Earth! (more on this new year coming)! (longer article forthcoming).
Its a year for Spirit in the Dirt!
It is also time for “grass-roots revolutions,” that are not corporate, and not planned, but grow like grass. Lighting up green and healthy and spreading quickly.
I am reminded of the work of Machaelle Small Wright: working with elemental spirits on a deep intimate level to achieve anything. She has something called a “soil-less garden,” which involves working with elemental spirits on projects that are not in real dirt, but still in form. (its a way of working with the elementals of dirt and rock, on projects that are more like websites and social movements, or businesses). This is one example of how to bring the “dirt,” and elemental energy–into all of our life this year. As I refer to her, she is also in the dirt.
Here is commentary from Machaelle on how change can happen in our current downward-falling-sustainability-situation (mostly seemingly from the impact of the Industrial Revolution). I believe as she does, that it is our responsibility to turn the (very earthly based) Industrial mess here around! I believe we are equipped to do this now:
from her blog ~
“Yes, the fallout of the Industrial Revolution and poor decisions on the part of industry and governments play a role in this. However, I believe they are responsible for only 50% of the problem. We individuals are responsible for the other 50%. All the issues resulting from that which shall not be named boil down to one thing: What scientific and industrial developments do we want to include in our lives and how much do we want to use them? Industry and governments may look big and out of control but, in actuality, we individuals are the ones who are in control. You know how to change an industry’s crappy, problem-producing product? Stop buying it. If a company’s sales suddenly drop, you will be shocked at how fast that company will change the product in order to regain those lost sales. “ –Machaelle Small Wright
This is the year we all “stop buying their products” and the crappy bad products of the destructive industrial revolution can fall away for healthier more sustainable options for all of us and the earth under our feet.
MOON SQUARE NEPTUNE this morning at [9:55 am pst/ 10:55 am mst/ 11:55 am cst/ 12:55 pm est] can feel like an industrial mess inside. We may feel the accidental spills, and overflows, or lack of something to meet something. Although it is exciting to have a new Solar year, as we do: we may not feel so good. For a unique reason for each of us, we may feel challenged emotionally. We may feel “the weight of the world,” upon our shoulders, or the industrial revolution in our bellies.
From this authentic place of feeling, we move the world. From our angst, turned to activism, our fear, transformed to action, our lack and our loss, turned to tenderness. We can sit in presence, sit with the rocks and trees, elementals and spiritual elements surrounding us, and move into grace. We can merge with elemental intent and grow ourselves from here. We all know where we need to grow. From this place of deep feeling, we have so much power to grow, as the new solar light enters, lifting us now day by day, with a little more of its new kind of light and new consciousness.
MOON OPPOSITE SATURN at [2:45 pm pst/ 3:45 pm mst/ 4:45 pm cst/ 5:45 pm est] is a parental moment. We can parent ourselves, our children, our animals, our forests, and we can parent the world around us, as it presents itself before us. We–who love, we who care, are the “parents of this world.” May we take responsibility with elemental support, connection and sustenance.
Today challenges us in our own unique way–to grow. May we grow into the radiant lights of wisdom that can grow a thousand gardens in one. Each thought, each gesture, each word, each prayer. We can grow into the world of balance and beauty from this place. May we grow together in wisdom from here.
