Epochal Changes in 2012: The Great Exhale

Epochal Changes in 2012: The Great Exhale

Our Global Chrysalis quickens with transformative change as new worlds are birthing around and inside of us.

Our collective story is reflected in the sign energies for each of the astrological Ages, which last about 2,150 years. Choices we Earthlings make, conscious and unconscious, during this shift in worldview will contribute to the unfolding documentaries of time for generations to come. We are living during the transition from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius—the position of the rising equinoxal Sun moves backward through the 12 signs of the Zodiac, completing a Great Cycle of all 12 ages in about 26,000 years. We are the light bearers of the emerging Aquarian Age, illuminating the future with our creative innovations and wild revolutions. When we join together as seers to share dreams for humanity, we invite a feast of revelation to come through each of us. As we confront the dysfunctional behaviors of our species, we release ourselves from entanglements of the past.

December 21, 2012, commemorates the completion of a 5,125 year cycle in the Mayan Long Count calendar. Some suggest Mayan cosmology correlates this date with an alignment of our Sun to the womb/center of the Milky Way galaxy, which occurs every 13,000 years. 1980–2016 are alignment zone years that may increase the potential for collective awakenings. Look for interpenetrating dimensions of reality to play on our psyches. The Sun symbolizes consciousness, and Venus symbolizes love and values. Let the current high point in the Sunspot cycle, and the rare Venus transit visible in front of the Sun’s disk on June 6th, enlighten our evolutionary path with conscious compassion.

Each completion of these spiraling cycles is like a Great Collective Exhale, purifying excesses and waste while intensifying our sense of destiny. Let us bring heart awareness to the pause before the Great Inhale of the next cycle. With humility and grace, set intentions for a civilization of love. Breathe. Be.
