When I studied music at school we did a classical piece by Grieg called In The Hall Of The Mountain King.  I always loved the name …  I could almost feel the damp stone beneath my feet, smell the cold air, quiver as I stood before the Mountain King pleading my case.

Right now we have a transit that calls us to state our case clearly, to stand for what we believe in.  Not just in our own minds, or even in our own homes.  We are being called to have the courage to step out from all our old comfort zones and say this is who I am and this is what I stand for.

Whether we’re at a pre-school meeting, in a group meditation or in the hall of the mountain king, it doesn’t matter.  We have something that we stand for in this life.  And it’s time to claim it for our own.  When we get it, life becomes much simpler and more obvious.

We don’t have to rush out and change the world, that comes later.  The crucial step now is to own it.



If you’re interested in the Human Design, I’m talking about the nodal activations to Gate 23 and 43.  The nodes shift on the 8th March (into North – Gate 1 and South – Gate 2).   Gate 43 is about what you stand for, how you define yourself, what belongs in your realm and what can you safely let pass you by?

Make a decision and tell it, even in the king’s chamber
With truth, call out, there is danger,
Notify your own city,
Fruitless to take up arms,
Fruitful to have a direction to go. 


The current Heart Centre activations give us the courage to step out of old family patterning, and line our own personal will with divine will.  We are laying foundations for the future we are beginning to consciously create.
