This little gem arrived yesterday from Tim with a note, “Well, better late than never.” I found his New Year’s piece in perfect timing for two reasons. First, David and I had visited his mom yesterday, and she mentioned having had to wait until tomorrow for something “scheduled” in early January: “Well, I wasn’t sure if 2015 hadn’t started yet .” I had a flash at that moment thinking, “You know, she’s more right than she realizes!” Then, David and I headed over to what had been scheduled as a Valentine’s Day concert on Saturday but postponed (due to a blizzard warning) until last evening. One of our incredibly talented friends in Goshen rang in the day after Valentine’s Day with a bunch of love songs and a recap of showboat tune history and Valentine’s Day history. We loved her singing, but I also noticed while looking around at the room that almost everyone with whom we rang in the New Year just happened to be there, too. It was like New Year’s Eve, take two. I returned home to Tim’s New Year’s message, so please make of all that whatever you will. 🙂 Here it is:
2015: A Call to Choice
Perhaps this can serve as a sign of the times: In previous years, the New Year’s article came out on January 1st, but this year it had to wait till mid February. Not that there is any pressure on any of us. After all, this is merely a quantum leap in evolution that we are co-creating.
We have reached the splitting of the worlds, the separation of the wheat from the chaff, selecting the red pill or the blue pill, or whatever analogy might express what Proterrian calls The Choice Point of Eternity.
Saturn in Scorpio
Some people might read the above subheading and say, “Wait a minute. Saturn finally left Scorpio on December 23rd, and that’s why we felt a global sigh of relief at the end of 2014.” True, but (emphasis on “but”) Saturn will only advance to 4 degrees of Sagittarius before going retrograde on March 14th, whereupon it will return for an encore performance in Scorpio beginning June 15th. Saturn will go back into direct motion on August 2nd, and cross into Sagittarius (for keeps this time – promise!) on September 18th.
During those three months, Saturn will give us the opportunity to tie up loose ends from the previous two years. Eleventh hour confessions, anyone? Last call. Saturn in Scorpio has been supporting us in unearthing subconscious gunk, and most folks don’t find much fun in such processes. Here we can turn to the wise words of Hagrid in the second Harry Potter book, “Well, better out than in.”
Saturn in Scorpio also helps unearth a lot that had been concealed from us, and which we would love to realize; about ourselves, our planet, our galaxy, our history, etc.
Uranus Square Pluto
The seventh and final exact square between the planets of evolution and revolution will occur on March 16th, and once again people might think it’s all over. But Uranus and Pluto will barely be more than a degree and a half apart in December, carrying the game on into 2016. In fact, until Uranus gets back up to speed after its 2015 retrograde, the two planets will inch their way even closer to each other in January 2016. Afterward, their world-changing influence will remain in play much farther down the road.
But this dash of reality is not intended to put a damper on the upswing of energies available for 2015. Overall, most of us will be more satisfied with our opportunities and blessings this year.
2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8
A major theme for the year involves allowing our creative power to express. As expressions of the Infinite Itself, we have unlimited abilities for co-creating the long-awaited New Earth – literally and physically. And that will only mark the starting point of an eternal adventure – a multidimensional and intergalactic mission, should you choose to accept it.
The eighth card of the tarot deck is called Strength. Its message includes exercising our internal gumption to simply be ourselves and step forth in our full power as creators. In most tarot decks, the Strength card pictures a woman petting a lion, reminding of us of the underlying theme of the entire Harry Potter series: Love is the greatest power.
We live at choice in each moment, and at the most basic level we choose between love and fear. Sometimes it requires lion-like courage for us to opt for true, unconditional Divine Love.
20 + 15 = 35
Card 35 is the Nine of Wands, which shows a man standing with eight wands firmly planted behind him, and a ninth wand in hand if needed. Preferably, he won’t need to use it. He lives prepared for any and all exigencies, walking softly and carrying a big stick.
Some artists depict him a little battered, but Robin Wood brings out his strength in her tarot deck, even though she does put a bandage on his head. As Friedrich Nietzsche said, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” After all we have endured in the Matrix, are we strong enough yet?
An animal that epitomizes the 35 is the skunk. This unassuming creature is really quite friendly, but if you threaten it…well, you know the story.
35 also encourages conservation of energy. Especially for those with the tendency to gallop off madly in all directions at the slightest provocation, it might help to consider three keywords from the Tao:
Simplicity, Observation, Action
A few friends who are devoted to Qi Gong have shared stories about the lineage holder of their system from China. They say he embodies these principles.
Simplicity: he never clutters his mind with anything that is not essential, which leaves him clearer for more astute observation. Those who have had the opportunity to spend time with him, say that he often appears to be doing absolutely nothing. But that man misses absolutely nothing. When his observation shows him there is something to be done – boom – he’s on it and it’s done. Then he goes back to being simple and observant.
Prioritizing our lives will help us navigate the waters of 2015, while Neptune and Chiron in Pisces continue inspiring us to genuinely spiritualize life on Earth. After all, Life on Earth is Spirit. Everything that exists is an expression of The Infinite. Albert Einstein said, “Physicality is an illusion of perception.” David Icke says, “Infinite love is the only truth. Everything else is illusion.”
2015 is recommending that we step forth into our power to choose our own illusions. Granted, we are awakening to find ourselves foundering in an ocean of externally imposed illusions that have been deeply ingrained in us as “reality”. We are unlearning eons’ worth of lies, deceptions and conditioning.
Which illusions would you love to transcend? Which illusions would you love to enhance? What kinds of illusions would you love to co-create with your friends?
That choice rests with you alone.
The Choice Point of Eternity
Several years ago, Proterrian said that we were approaching the time to “let go of all external points of reference”, because all our external points of reference had been rooted in the old fear-based Matrix. If we truly have the courage to stand strong as Creators, then we will operate from one point of reference, which can be found in the heart. From there, we can co-create new external points of reference with our love-based friends. The time is now.
Within the context of our current experience, each of us will choose how to interact with the external world. The Infinite imposes no rules. Yes: what you resist, persists. Yes: if you fight it, you feed it. But such basic principles do not suggest that we become doormats, punching bags or any other form of victim. The strong man in the Nine of Wands does carry the Big Stick for a reason.
The game that is playing out on Planet Earth looms as a threat to the entire biosphere. It’s rather dramatic, because humans have been addicted to drama back into the mists of time. The endgame strategies are yours to choose: the end of life, or Eternal Life. And yes, it’s a game.
