Spirits, what do human beings need to know as 2017 comes to a close?
Strength needs a new collective definition.
Strength is not money or material possessions. It is also not being able to kick someone’s ass, dominate them and take their property. A powerful individual is not strong on his own. Nothing is strong if the core nexus is weak.
Cosmic forces are redefining what it means to be a strong human by stressing how to find strength in darkness.
In the November forecast, the Spirits made it clear that humanity has shifted into The Epoch of Earth Goddess, a new cosmic phase of life.
With this shift comes the feminine directive of strength, which differs from the standard modus operandi because it takes place in the dark.
The world is literally melting; it is hot and light pollution is making the planet more bright than ever. A lot of these environmental effects are manifestations of the masculine consciousness that has been dominant internationally for thousands of years. It has been go, go, go, build, build, build, conquer, conquer, conquer for what feels like forever. Rationalist thought, with clear directives has driven the way forward while intuition, feelings and spirituality have been written off as either an ignorant pursuit, a fun hobby or so completely illegitimate it doesn’t even need to be entertained as a thought.
But even in our modern times, with so many technological advancements, it is now more apparent than ever we need to work from a different set of parameters in order to ensure the survival of our species.
The Epoch of Earth Goddess is steered by the moon, not the sun. Navigating through the night relies on different senses, which is part of the reason why many people were having straight up meltdowns and crises of identity last month, because survival skills that worked for eons are just not as effective anymore.
Strength will not be redefined overnight, but one thing is clear: forging ahead and conquering on some yang sh*t will not help you anymore.
Start to slow down. Allow things to flow to you instead of putting focus and energy into generating outcomes through direct external action. That’s yang, we’re on the yin flex now.
In this new epoch, humans are guided by the lunar, by forces unseen, the darkness. Become comfortable with allowing providence to take the lead. Accept that cosmic forces are wiser than the human mind and tap into the power of the universe. Taking these steps will eventually lead to what it means to be strong in this new world.
Check out these dates for some SIGNIFICANT events to take place:
When the moon transits the Leo zodiac sign from December 6-8, ubiquitous strength is profound and palpable. The single most important day of the month is the 8th - this is when the Sagittarius Sun trine True Node in Leo partner with the Moon to signal the way forward. December 22nd is likely to be a little funky and awkward, like a bad growth spurt, and on the 24th Jupiter square North Node will apply pressure to really get somewhere with this. We'll all keep getting sucked into the future through the end of the month, but the revelations look to be more playful and creative on the 29th & 30th.
KEY DECEMBER THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Six of Swords reversed: Ram, conflict avoidance is no longer effective; the issue needs to be addressed. Six of Swords reversed indicates being unable to move on. Festering frustration is a symptom of this and if the issue is not dealt with directly, it can mutate into ugly manifestations in the future. But this situation is tricky because instead of coming to a clear resolution, the time calls for further reflection on what the real problem is before taking steps to resolve it. A lot of this will be internal work on your part; you’ll probably discover some action you’ve been taking has been contributing to the whackness. The good news about this is that inner work is likely to reap more results and you’ll probably be able to handle this just by looking inward. Beware of projecting outward in December; many of these external nuisances are probably bouncing from the inside, out.
Taurus - Nine of Cups reversed: Bull, are you overlooking something important? Nine of Cups reversed suggests serial pessimism has taken hold. Infecting good things with a glass half empty mentality may be great for worst case scenario preparation, but sometimes the negativity can get excessive. This month, it’s important to embrace the reality that all is well. Consider the idea that cynicism is a product of the human condition and not a direct reflection of providence. If the universe is infinite, is “no” the answer to everything from an inexhaustible omniscient source? Of course not, that makes no sense! It’s more likely to be yes, yes, yes because there are infinite solutions or patterns of growth involved. Anyway, it is not time for a cosmological debate, the whole purpose of bringing that up is to highlight the fact there are options outside of a rigid doom and gloom perspective surrounding any situation, so lighten up.
Gemini - Ten of Cups: Twins, relax, don’t push it. Ten of Cups represents a pleasurable time period driven by remarkable emotional balance. Evacuate from the site of the stress bomb and hook up a bath bomb; literally drench yourself in love and goodness in the weeks ahead and don’t feel guilty about that. Focusing on emotional nourishment heals the madness of the past couple of months by cultivating balance and allowing a powerful feeling current to flow with whatever occurs in the material realm. This type of internal equanimity creates space for aplomb in the face of all risks and challenges. You’re completing a certain phase of emotional ways of being right now, shedding a shell or old skin. By saying goodbye to that emotionally frenetic old you, you’re embracing the universe, thus, allowing forces greater than yourself to steer you in the right direction. The first step in accomplishing this is giving yourself the space to make feeling good your number one priority right now.
Cancer - Nine of Pentacles: Cancer, just kick it for a while and celebrate your blessings. Nine of Pentacles suggests it’s OK to be a little lazy when it comes to proactivity surrounding career matters this month. Why? Because an epoch of life in the way you earn a living is nearing completion, and you know it. This has been a long time coming and instead of striving for the next thing, it’s time to celebrate advancements and prepare for completion. Wrap it up and enjoy spoils right now before the end arrives soon. It’s around the corner. Also, if you’ve experienced any sort of whackness recently with finances or profession, don’t worry about it, things are looking up for you in 2018, so give yourself permission to chill on all that jazz in December.
Leo - Seven of Cups reversed: Lion, creative blocks are back again and that’s fine. Seven of Cups reversed suggests indecisiveness is present and when it becomes difficult to make a decision, of course it’s annoying. But wavering between choices doesn’t automatically imply something is wrong, it’s totally OK to think about it. Please don’t victimize yourself for not really being clear on where to go with this. Feel free to reach out to others for their opinions as a sort of creative roundup of ideas, the simple act of brainstorming, might actually turn out to be super fun. Although it may seem like something bad is happening, you’ll be relieved to know it will work out in a surprisingly awesome way in the end.
Virgo - Ace of Swords reversed: Virgin, quests for truth do not need to be overcomplicated, seek the obvious. Ace of Swords reversed suggests it is best to embrace a higher perspective in December instead of focusing a narrow gaze on what is not working. Look at the big picture, beyond mild inconveniences and impediments - what do you see there? Instead of a permanent restriction that will cause things to suck forever, this is a good temporary pause supporting growth through learning something new. Making a mistake is not tragic, especially when you’re launched into unprecedented realms and have to figure out what to do. Be patient and allow yourself to be new at something. It’s impossible to know everything about something you’re experiencing for the first time. Focus on presence and look at this as an adventurous quest for knowledge.
Libra - Ace of Rods reversed: Scales, a bright idea is formulating under wraps. Ace of Rods suggests it’s better to keep it undercover for now. This is a deep perception and has profound implications for transformation of the soul. Allow space for it to grow in the depths because this is not just some fleeting hollow fancy. In December, focus on practicing dynamic inner work. Fortunately, this type of spiritual self-development can be fun and doesn’t need to see you flogging yourself as part of a monastic atonement ritual in a cave. Whatever calls to you, whether it’s hella yoga or some other type of sacred medicine, is perfect, and if you prefer to do it with others, great, but just be sure to allow yourself to cultivate joy and other forms of joie de vivre while you embark on these pursuits.
Scorpio - Two of Cups reversed: Scorpion, love-longing has crept in again. It’s like, dang, what can I do to get over this yearning? Well, hearing self-love as the solution sucks, it’s so trite, but that’s what Two of Cups reversed indicates. Here’s the thing, whether single, dating, committed, whatever the love status is, Scorpios leave a little part of their soul with everyone they bond with, so it’s hard to overcome that sensation of losing something, no matter whether events have proven the other person in question is incompatible. And also, nothing was lost! How wonderful it is to experience love, even for a second - this is an absolute privilege of being a living human. So, in this context, there actually is nothing missing, and in fact, an infinite amount of profound beauty gained. Don’t slip back into emotional ignorance by longing for a “lost” connection that remains alive in the heart. It’s there already! Move on with compassion for each person in the equation, including yourself.
Sagittarius - Queen of Rods: Centaur, in December, you’re back in your element, BOOM! Finally. It was like WTF happened in November, going back to the Cosmic School of Hard Knocks. Queen of Rods turns up to confirm a new epoch of taking charge has arrived. It really is time to lead in the direction of manifesting desires. Get out there! The waiting game is over, although, it is important not to forget the character development and maturation of vision the agonizing period of patience cultivated as things move forward. Merge with desires on extraordinarily next levels, for sure, but beware of using primitive forces from the past as fuel for engagement.
Capricorn - Knight of Cups reversed: Goat, romance is here, whether the conscious mind wants to focus on love or not. Single, dating or committed, a latent desire to create fantasy-love lingers with such a powerful effect, it may feel as if it has transgressed into the realms of madness. A waiting game quality is also present with the appearance of Knight of Cups reversed. Making a move is complicated and it may be better to wait it out before expressing the type of amorous affection that is raging like a rapid underground river in the bowels. It’s cool, be patient with all of these passionate emotions that don’t make sense. Forward progress is not the goal - acknowledging these feelings and allowing them to be there is the primary objective.
Aquarius - Ten of Pentacles: Water Bearer, substantive abundance in the form of health, love and happiness for all is really what it’s all about. It’s really as simple as vibing high and sharing the wealth. Ten of Pentacles has reached a pinnacle of success, suggesting a leader at the top of the game, killing it in a way that creates a fulfilling sense of completion. In December, accept the radness of having achieved something you’ve worked really hard for. There’s no need to gloat, but what’s wrong with feeling good about it? Nothing, go for it, spread the love. If others aren’t on the level, f**k it, not your problem, maintain your appreciation and expression of greatness.
Pisces - High Priestess reversed: Fish, the urge to resist intuition is a real and present danger. High Priestess reversed shows up to acknowledge a strong atmosphere of second-guessing that is probably sparked in part by traversing foreign landscapes of emotions. There is a spiritual pull to this card - the universe has the power to string you along like some type of cosmic puppet sometimes, and in December, you might as well bow down and allow providence to magnetize your soul to its destiny. Who cares if you don’t know what happens? Enter the darkness and go with the flow. You don’t need a flashlight - when eyelids are closed profound colors and patterns emerge to light the way.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Celebrate strength and resilience. It’s easy to focus on what’s wrong, missing, or how much things are f**ked up, but how about surviving like a G? Isn’t accomplishing something of value in this world despite all struggles worthy of celebration? Of course it is! Acknowledge yourself and others for the courage they possess as a functional human being on earth in the face of so much scariness. Even the might dysfunctional folk are strong to be performing the best way they can amid the chaos of existence on earth. Honor that.
- Bow down to the strength of providence. Accept that you know nothing and will need to develop night vision in the darkness.
- Give, be of service, exercise humility and integrity of character. Dog eat dog is the quickest way to extinction in The Epoch of Earth Goddess.
- Take your time. A lot of this yin stuff, I mean this is massive reprogramming. Our entire society is based on getting out there and generating results, doing something. It makes no sense, even for the most spiritual westerner, to sit back and receive. Divine reception can also occur like a fantasy that is not powerful, when in fact, it is so mind-bogglingly strong no vocal utterance could even encapsulate a microscopic reflection of this power. This type of approach can be a real mind-f**k for even some of the most enlightened individuals, and that’s OK. Just be patient and allow this new modus operandi, this fresh definition of strength, this new toolset, to unfold on divine time.
