1st February 2011
My overall take on 2011 is that we are in training. For what? I believe we are in training to become Co-Creators. I know that’s a bit of a buzz word, but it’s part of my reality, rather than just some lovely esoteric idea I might enjoy dreaming about. And I believe it’s a very important concept that will be much more a part of the collective consciousness by the end of this year.
Specifically what I see in the transits for 2011 is a series of ongoing opportunities for us to choose to step out of any of the roles we may have cast ourselves in and to grasp the opportunity in each moment to sparkle with life.
No more dwelling in the land of hurt, powerlessness, resentment and all those other delicious forms of victim mentality that have been our playground for so long. We’ve certainly enjoyed them in our own sweet way, but now we get to learn a new game. And it asks us this question repeatedly – How will you perceive this moment differently if you know you truly are master of your own life and destiny?
One of the most significant indicators for this question comes from Jupiter and Uranus moving through the channel of initiation that links the Heart Centre to the Ji Centre. This channel is a profound Aries initiating energy that has us applying our willpower (Heart Centre) to the calling of our soul (Ji Centre).
This is an individual energy with the courage to be part of the collective, maintaining it’s own boundaries of self in the process.
The Heart Centre end of the channel – Gate 51 – is the hexagram of Shock. It flows on from hexagram 50, which signifies a new beginning. The double thunder of hexagram 51 shakes everything up, overthrows the old and throws open the gate to the new.
The Ji Centre end of the channel – Gate 25 – the the hexagram of Innocence. It is about the purity of self that flows from disentangling from the pathways of others and focusing on our own way. Trying to engage with the pathways of others simply creates (and is caused by) illusion. This gate holds the profound truth of synchronicity and it’s potential for perfect manifestation when we come from that core purity within us.
Like a Shazam!! moment, the result of the two gates forming this channel can be a feeling of shock, both physical and emotional. The purpose of this energy is to propel us out of the victim position of ‘how could this happen to me’ type shock and into an exploration of our power as creators. What is the germ of creation in this moment for me? Why have I created this experience for myself?
We move from shock to initation, and from there into greater levels of wisdom. Life becomes simultaneoulsy simpler and more profound.
The next three months and beyond will be a delicate dance between the two – choosing our unique pathway, recuperating and taking advantage of the Gate 51 doorway as it opens and closes with the transits.
Jupiter and Uranus will both be in Gate 25 from 8th to 12th February 2011. During this time there is an asteroid called Hephaistos transiting in Gate 51. Hephaistos (already working with Jupiter now in Gate 25) is giving us the faith to heal any shock that has disabled our will, rendering us unable to express our individuality in alignment with our soul. It operates specifically in regard to abandonment by our mothers and old armour we have carried on our hearts to protect us from the pain of this wound.
Uranus will be in Gate 25 – from 8th February 2011 to 13th March 2012. Jupiter moves into the adjoining Gate 51 on 2nd April 2011 till 24th April. During the time we have some very interesting transits by the Sun and Mars, adding to the courage to be an individual idea, this will be a period when it will feel as if the door is being flung open and then suddenly closed again. Uranus won’t begin it’s own long term transit in Gate 51 until 2015.
It’s of interest that both Pluto and Ceres, transiting together almost exclusively in the Root Centre since 27th December 2010 till tomorrow, and the asteroid Hephaistos, have an effect on our legs, representing our mobility and ability to move in the direction of our own joy and nourishment. The Root Centre rules the legs and Hephaistos can represent lameness.
It’s also significant that Ceres is exactly conjunct the Sun in Gate 19 today. This is a gate that has us rejecting others – getting in first so that they don’t get the chance to reject us. We’re often in deep denial of this process and it can be hard to spot. Ceres of course represents the specific type of nurturing we required as children and how it’s lack can make us a bit … well, just a touch neurotic. Gate 19 certainly has it’s neurotic side with it’s need for security and it’s tendency to extreme emotional sensitivity to rejection.
The up side is that it also has a unique sensitivity to delving into our emotional and material needs and how to meet them in conjunction with the rest of the community we call family.
We’ve got a New Moon coming up tomorrow, as the Sun finally moves out of the Root Centre and into the Ji Centre – Gate 13.
