A Summary of the Energies, and the Finger of God Configuration
We started December still under the influence of the Scorpio new Moon which brought to the surface the deeper feelings and fears that we needed to look at and release. We did well to remember that all of this was stirred up so that we could be more open to the transformational energies of greater awareness that are coming into our part of Creation at this time.
It is time for us to tune into deeper levels as we finish this Scorpio cycle.
New Moon on December 13th~ The focus of this new moon is on expansion, freedom and truth-seeking. It is a good time to seek new beginnings. It is a good time to ask to be shown what your special strengths are, what the gifts are that you have to give.
All planets in our solar system are in the night sky this month. Take the opportunity to look up. There’s a meteor shower that peaks mid-month as well (around December 13th). Also worth watching. It is the last shower of this Age, after all.
Full Moon on December 28th~ This full moon will be the most powerful of the year. The full Moon of November was exceedingly potent. It is as if the Moon herself is sending the message that the power of the feminine must be allowed to step forward once more and take her place at the side of the masculine if there is to be any hope for us to move into this new era of consciousness in a balanced way.
It is not difficult to count the ways in which the collective response to situations is male energy oriented. The results of a head-centered, fear-based, competitive, suspicious, divisive, and exclusionary approach can be seen everywhere. As Dr. Phil would say: “So how is that working for you?” My response would be: “Not so well, Dr. Phil.”
This world is in desperate need of a more heart-centered approach to the problems we face. We need cooperation instead of competition. And we need inclusion instead of separation. We need trust and compassion, not fear and suspicion. And every one of us, to a person, needs a sense of belonging.
December 21, 2012~The Finger of God…A relevant quote comes to mind here: “The moving finger writes, and, having writ, moves on: nor all your piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all your tears wash out a word of it.” ~Omar Khayym
The planetary configuration known as a Yod, or finger of God, is the pattern that will be in the heavens on the Solstice. The energy streaming from the Universe will be filtered through this pattern, so it is important we have some understanding of the energies that will be in play.
Yod is the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet.It has significant relevance to the name of God and God’s presence in our lives. The Yod configuration “points” to a specific task or mission.
Saturn in Scorpio, Uranus, and Pluto in Capricorn ‘point’ to Jupiter. Jupiter, ruler of religious systems, philosophy, and beliefs, is the focal point for this energy. The energies of Uranus and Pluto, especially combined, is all about radical change and transformation. It’s important to note that Uranus and Pluto will be traveling together for the next 4 to 5 years, so we can look forward to some changes that can likely be stressful if we’re not prepared.
To that end, now would be a good time to determine for yourself what your as yet unidentified necessity is. For example, is it community? Once you have identified your need, complete the process by also determining what you must give up, what new habits you must adopt, what actions you must take in order to get this need met. And then take the necessary steps to follow through.
Neptune is the planet of spirit, ascension, and sometimes confusion. It is time to make some conscious choices about our role in the process. What will we give our attention (and therefore our power) to? What is worth living for? What do we choose to be a part of?
The last piece of this astrological pie is the planet Venus. She’ll be standing in opposition to Jupiter, and therefore is a balancer (feminine energy again) to this pattern. To triumph in this situation we will collectively need love, tolerance, a broader perspective, and honest communication. Start practicing now.
We are a microcosm of the macrocosm. Individually we seek balance in our lives, especially now. Collectively we are being called to balance our existence. The planet is working towards balance, and many of the ‘unusual’ weather patterns and earth movements are how that is being achieved. The Universe (the macrocosm) is bringing itself into balance at this time as well. The result will be the same: Balance in All Things.
The only question left to be answered is how that result will be obtained.
One age ends, and another begins. It is the way of things. But, it doesn’t happen all at once. ~Derek Donais
