Happy Winter Solstice & Goodbye Mayan Calendar

There was a flash mob in Denver today, dancing to the song… “It’s the End of the World as We Know It”.  What a brilliant song for today.  In the wake of much concern about the Mayan Calendar declaring that it’s all over for us, I was glad to hear that most people over the last few months just recognized that we are in transition, and the world goes on with a new world order.

I’m sure the Mayan guy worked hard to complete the job, but at some point, he probably went out for a coffee break and got diverted and perhaps forgot to write “ETC…” at the end of the 2012 year.  Or could it be the Mayans were spiritual and knew our current society would be ready to launch into a new experience, and beyond 2012 their vision of structure would no longer work for us.  The trick?  This was a piece of information for us to figure out… and recognize the respect the Mayan’s must have had for us, knowing that we would have the wisdom to create our own future from this point forward.

I talked about life with a friend into the early hours of the morning, and if it wasn’t for the need for sleep we would have talked right through the exact time the Sun moved into the constellation of Capricorn at 6:12am EST today, 12-21-12.  What cool numbers!  Together we therapitized each other and spent hours sharing our life’s lessons, so we could honor the Solstice by declaring how we would move forward in life with conscious growth toward our most precious desires.  This was a busy day in the world.  Many Solstice celebrations are still ringing.  Dances of universal peace, drumming, chanting and yoga so many different options of joy.

The Winter Solstice marks the time of year when the Sun moves into the last quadrant of the zodiac.  If you can imagine the astrological wheel, this quadrant exist between 12 o’clock and 9 o’clock, (The wheel is read counter-clockwise).  The sign of Capricorn rules the 10th house, which is the piece of the pie from 12 o’clock to 11 o’clock.  For us in the Northern Hemisphere, this is our winter.  Today, the darkest day of the year, I have to say that I’m glad not to be up in Alaska where they have very little light.  From here, the light will grow.  From here, our conscious will grow.

It’s interesting that at such a quiet time of hibernation, the Sun moves into a sign which is quite a worker bee.  We have two different energies happening.  It’s time to go inward and honor the quiet of the season, and yet it’s time to build our foundation for our next year.  Perhaps the best way to begin our foundation for the next cycle is to rest well, reflect on our lives, give our bodies good quality of food and to be responsible to the dreams that we want to manifest on this planet.  It’s one thing to dream, it’s another to plant the dream into solid ground.  This is what Capricorn can do for us now.  It is the sign that can give roots to our desires.  Stay conscious in your body, and don’t be afraid to make changes that can result in having your dreams come true.  As the Mayans predicted, it’s our turn to fully embrace the creation of our own future.
