It's been an interesting week. Several clients I have spoken with have shared similar feelings about the upcoming holidays- it seems surreal somehow. I've noticed it too. I've gone through the motions, tried to amp up to the excitement and joy that usually comes with it, but it feels far away. These past two months plagued with tense astrological transits have created a rather interesting time for us. I'd like to say that it's at least better since Mars finally went direct a week ago, but I supposed it does take it a while to get back to where it was before it appeared to travel backwards.
Wednesday the 21st is the Winter Solstice, signaling the coming of light. Meditation and inner reflection is a good plan for the day, along with lighting a candle and stating your intentions for the coming New Year. It is a time of spiritual renewal and inner clarity. Make your list for what you choose to create in 2006. Know that the longest night of the year is the perfect time for acknowledging transformation and committing to making those changes in the next several months.
The upcoming year brings energy of release and letting go to the forefront, especially layers of karmic burdens that we have carried with us into this now moment. I deal with past life information often with clients and it never ceases to surprise and amaze me the things we carry around with us. We think the past life experience remains unfinished and we look to find closure or resolution. While sometimes it is about acceptance, many times it is about recognizing the karmic pattern, identifying the past life experience in question and releasing it to the past.
2006 adds up to the #8. The number 8 signifies karma. We will be influenced to recognize, release and move on. I will be talking much more about karmic experiences after the holidays.
In the meantime, the now moment is saying it's late and time for me to go to bed....
