I saw an advertisement for personal loans in the local paper that read “Whatever you want, get there more quickly.”  It could be the anti-catch phrase for 10.10.10, which would read more like “Whatever you want, get there at exactly the right time and with complete authenticity, integrity and ease.”

I use the Human Design System, a synthesis of the I Ching, the Kaballah, the Chakras and Astrology to map our evolutionary shifts. It gives me a very powerful and precise view of the influences that are shifting and changing within each moment. The transits for 10.10.10 tell us to stop trying, and start living.

Look around you and see what an illusion we have been fed about what we lack in our lives.  The very same illusion that keeps us trying .. and trying .. and trying, until we simply exhausted from the effort and find we have little to show for it anyway.   All that is about to change.

There is something being birthed on our planet.  And there is something dying.  On 10.10.10, there is support for gentle action free of doubt in the direction of the new world we are creating.  We are learning to ride the waves of change, and use them to propel us gracefully forward rather than press us back.

What’s being birthed is our ability to contain our energy within us until the perfect time, and then to act in alignment with our own dreams and visions.  As I write this article, in August 2010,  newly discovered Dwarf Planet Haumea is having a powerful influence, and on 10.10.10 she makes her presence felt even more strongly, because she is conjunct the Sun.  Haumea is the Creator Goddess of Hawaii, and one of her messages is the return of the earth mother as initial creatrix, the feminine energy that brought all matter out of the void.  She represents the authentic feminine energy, untainted by the toxic aspects of patriarchy.

Haumea is holding a space for the birth of a new young masculine energy rising up from the heart of the earth.  He would rather run naked through the forest than put on a suit, he is wild and free and protective of all the earth’s resources and her people.  On 10.10.10 we’ll meet Shamanic Nature God Pan, who steps forward as a new leader, gathering us to a powerful togetherness. The masculine Pan energy is still young on 10.10.10.  He has an instinctive understanding that his strength must align with the earth in order for everyone to prosper, but he will take some time to discover his strength, and how to apply it well.

To add potency to the message of Pan and Haumea, Mars will be in a position of primal power that knows how to work with, rather than against, time. He uses his newly found power to create order and bring peace to the world through an integration rather than separation of elements – human, environmental and commercial.

The Moon and Mars will both pass over an initiating point on 10.10.10 and this indicates the beginning of a new cycle of emotional development for men. There is a stripping away of the falsehood of God The Father as creator, where mother is given the role of passive virgin, and a rising up of the true creative potential of the masculine as it works in synergy with the newly emerging power of the feminine.

What’s dying?  The old worn out and exhausted way of pushing forward relentlessly seeking more growth.  This way of living has become unsustainable because we now feel it’s lack of authenticity so strongly in our day to day lives. This is the old rigid and hierarchical patriarchal energy that acts only to further it’s own interests.  Trying to keep working for the man is simply too exhausting, and one by one we are surrendering to the inevitable  …  it’s not the way forward.

There are dimensional time shifts happening between now and 2012 and when we stay trapped in mechanical time we find time is moving faster and faster, and we with it.  As someone said to me today “I don’t seem to be in charge of my own life anymore.” Tuning in to our own natural rhythm helps shift energy out of the idea of a mechanical universe which is based on outdated scientific ideas from the 17th and 18th century. We are becoming quantum humans and that means we are flow, we are connection. Time is relative, a personally experienced phenomenon rather than something imposed on us.

What’s also dying are all the aspects of ourselves that still doubt we can survive without that old patriarch.  All the tender young inner aspects of self that want to please, placate or pander to bosses, banks, government agencies, teachers, parents and any other authority figures in our lives are frightened by the shift, but prepared to take small steps towards a more mature and independent way of life.  The idea that these ‘authorities’ will protect us and provide for us is being put to rest.  It’s not about rebelling against them, but understanding that our nourishment now lies elsewhere and all that remains is for us to unplug from the energetic hold those ‘authorities’ have may still have in our lives.

Pan and Haumea bring a juicy, sensual and abundant energy that is regenerating us at the physical and soul levels, It’s an earth based abundance and it feels unfamiliar, scary, but at the same time tantalising and irresistible.  Our challenge is to receive what they are offering us, to let go of our attachment to beliefs of unworthiness, struggle and pain.

On 10.10.10 the Sun shines a light that allows us to be fully present in the moment, connected with our cellular or body consciousness, and able to clearly see anything that is limiting us.  It represents the return of a penetrating clarity of judgment that thwarts all hidden motives, uncovers and breaks up intrigues.  This ripples out from a personal knowing, to our relationships and on into our culture.  When this place within us is activated, as it is on 10.10.10, we see things that were previously hidden from us, especially when the Sun is shining his light there!

Our physical bodies are engaged in releasing old worn out DNA patterning that has kept us tied up in ancestral drama and karmic connections. Saturn is shifting our allegiance from worldly “Kings and Lords” to our own souls.   Unattached to our status in the old sense, and claiming our own inner authority, we find a responsibility to our own soul journey brings us most success.  And not just on the spiritual plane, this success is a material one as well.  This includes peeling away the layers of addiction to the glamour of “idle pleasures, amusements and indulgences”.   We learn that true joy is calm, peaceful and needs no hype.

Our social structure is leaving our simplest and most basic needs unsatisfied and causing our bodies and emotions to be unhealthy.   Food that doesn’t nourish us, work that isn’t playfully creative, homes that cost the earth, are made with toxic materials and keep us busy doing housework’ rather than providing us with shelter and sustenance. We are being called to look deep within ourselves for brand new ways of living, being, doing.

We are discovering something within us that is vitally alive, a literally inexhaustible wealth. Energies within us that have been demonised, isolated and cut off are returning to consciousness.

The Goddess Nike conjunct Mercury is letting us know that when we ‘just do it’, without checking in with our intuition and emotional responses we are probably getting it horribly wrong.  If we don’t experience an easy and natural enthusiasm to act, to move, to engage, then the time isn’t right.  Life is not about a stress-fuelled constant growth or movement in one direction only.  It’s a dance with the natural cycles that encompass light and dark, breathing in and breathing out, sprouting, growing, blooming and bearing fruit, pruning and reshaping. We find an equilibrium through creating a life that has no excess and no insufficiency.  We don’t need to lose our heads and be swept up by unfavourable conditions or circumstances which up till  now we felt were beyond our control. We maintain our inner light so strongly that any darkness in our lives perishes because there is nothing left for it to feed on.

Between now and 10.10.10 we are on a pathway of finding our own authentic responses to life.  Inspiration (mind), intuition (body) and emotions – all of these inform us so strongly that we are able to fully embody our spirit, grounded and connected.  Our bodies are coming to life.  Our emotions are informing us rather than overwhelming us.  We have created a sense of inner freedom so that consciously tuning into our intuition no longer threatens our survival by pitting us against ‘the system’ but calls us to the joyful adventure of more life and more love.

It’s important to let go of our addiction to excessive movement and growth, to breathe in the nourishment that life offers in the simplicity and purpose of each moment.  If we are anxious to advance ourselves, the active masculine principle will operate without being properly informed.   Getting the balance right is what stabilises us and allows us to contain and express our essence in the world without confusion or interference.

Although it might appear that we are in a phase of massive destruction, we are actually shifting into our co-creative roles.  Going within becomes a creative rather than destructive experience, because ‘within’ is now filling with light and love and joy.  It’s that light, love and joy that guides us surely on our own unique pathway.  We breathe easy and connect without fear from that place, no longer needing to guard ourselves because we have our own inner wisdom fully operational – our inspiration, our intuition and our emotions.  This is a powerful multi-awareness that is master of time and space.  It knows where, it knows when, it knows how and it knows who.

Business ~ But Not As Usual

Athena’s lost mother, Metis Goddess of Wisdom, will be conjunct the Moon on 10.10.10.  Also joining them is Pax – a version of Athena who’s head was on all Roman coins.  This suggests a return to more lunar or feminine aspects of wealth creation, where we find our financial security in connecting with our feminine wisdom.  Remember the earth based Pan?  He now holds power over money, the gate that indicates who controls the resources. He is the planetary protector of our earthly resources.

We are able to accumulate great strength and wealth and further our achievements in an unprecedented alignment with our authenticity.  In the past, when we have moved forward too quickly it’s as if we were looking for something in the wrong place, as if we’d turned up to catch the 4pm train at 2.30pm and couldn’t understand why it wasn’t waiting for us at the station.  We have felt inadequate, humiliated even, as our efforts hve failed again and again, and we pushed forward ahead of our natural strength and lost touch with our natural abundance and ease. We can now make progress by letting go of false self confidence and manufactured enthusiasm, caused by believing we succeed by having to push out beyond our own power.

The Moons Nodes suggest that on 10.10.10 we may feel like hanging back too far, as if to balance having pushed too far ahead of ourselves for so long.  It’s as if we don’t quite know how to use our new found connection and power.  We still doubt ourselves.  We can get caught up in feeling angry about the past. This is a trap that binds up our body and keeps us in the old energy.  Our natural impulse on 10.10.10 is to express our joy in living, in being in a physical body, in connecting with others deeply, intuitively, divinely.  The circuitry of the transits suggest that we will have a strong sense of what is possible for us in the future, an intuitive knowing of which possibilities will work out for us.

Business becomes a sharing of joy and love that co-creates prosperity rather than a way to make money.

Magdalena and Toro bring immense power on 10.10.10 although if we try to throw our weight around we’ll land back on our butts.  Like the famous Tao yin/yang symbol, feminine intuition and masculine action must tumble one over the other, creating the wheel of life in a partnership of mutual trust, equality and respect.


10.10.10 brings a new energy to relationships, a new way to move through conflict that looks at the big picture view and so eschews selfish and individual motives. We see our relationships as a co-creative dance rather than a way to have our needs met. This is not about compromising ourselves, quite the opposite. It’s about dissolving conflict by finding a more expansive, warm, loving and intimate connection with each other based on mutual understanding.

Lilith and Vesta are bringing us the intuitive guidance to find values that support our sacred truth. Venus and new dwarf planet Quaoar allow us to clear old family patterns that perhaps we haven’t even been aware of till now, but that have nonetheless intruded on our intimate relationships. This is a new type of dance that requires us to take a step towards the other only when the time is right, and then to wait for their response. In this way we co-create self respect and self worth independent of the approval of our significant other.

Mars and Eros come together, teaching us the language of erotic love and vivid life. On 10.10.10 men will be looking for something new in their relationships, but some still don’t really understand where to look. Zeus, the mythological philanderer, is taking some time to delve deeply into his pattern of behaviour and may decide to take some time out to get his act together. Yet another new dwarf planet, Makemake, has been working for 3 years now to help us find new gentler and more celebratory ways to come together. Makemake is totally in favour of a free female expression of sexuality and eroticism, and has no connections with the old ideas of ownership and control. His effect on our masculine energy is simply one of immense enjoyment of being alive and free of oppression.

The old cultural construct of relationship is dissolving from our DNA so that it’s not even a twinkle in our eye anymore. We are rediscovering our equality, rejoicing in our ability to give and receive without limit, leveraging the power of two or more. In this way we free up more than our emotions and sexual energy. We break through ego barriers that have kept us isolated and shut down, we revitalize ourselves at the very core of our being.


The new dwarf planets currently being activated are named not for the old gods of Greece and Rome, but are Creator Gods and Goddesses of the Pacific. They are acting as a bridge for us to move from seeing change as potentially destructive and painful to understanding that it’s about dancing with universal creation. Haumea is Creator Goddess of Hawaii, Makemake is Creator God of Rapa Nui also known as Easter Island, and Quaoar is Creator God of the Tongva tribe, the original inhabitants of the Los Angeles Basin, sometimes called the San Gabrielino Native Americans.

Each one of them represents a return to dance as a method of creation, dancing life into being, dancing with life to create life.   Each one of them represents a life more free, more joyful and more juicy than what we have become accustomed to in the past. Each time we choose to dance with these energies we strengthen the bridge for all humanity to shift from destruction to creation.
