With the big day drawing near, of course, the 2012 meme is popping up everywhere. My take now is that each will experience/is experiencing their own apocalypse (or "unveiling"). I used to write a lot about the collective. Now I see that the real magic is in each individual's relationship to the living Earth and cosmos.
I read an article on Human Origins by Chris Bourne. In his bio, he wrote about being in a near-fatal car crash. "During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising (sic) that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose - to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves." The gist of his article is that there have been times when humanity was more awake and powerfully in synch with the planet and cosmos.
The mystery of human origins seems to hold clues for human potential, as free souls. And in this digging into this hidden history, as one piece of inspiration for the future, is a theme, in my view of the Uranus-Pluto square. This is one of the main aspects for this 2012 era, but it's really just getting cracking -- this waxing square is in effect to 2015.
I'm looking at this after reading an article by William Stickevers on The Meaning of the Mayan Calendar End Date Within the Context of Modern Astrology. On another of the 2012 aspects, the Yod between Saturn-Pluto and Jupiter, Stickevers writes, "This configuration also suggests that many of the intractable problems facing our civilization will reach crisis level, causing great suffering that will deepen humanity and make it question and be more open to a greater understanding of the higher laws of life and the universe."
The main symbolic image of 2012 is the galactic alignment -- with the winter solstice Sun at the crossroads of both the galactic plane and the ecliptic (the path of the Earth). This potentially opens us up to the timeless creative void, to recover our legacy with Earth, and go beyond the beliefs that keep us from breaking free. So I see it as a point of meditation for pure magic and "revealing aspects of the truth about ourselves to ourselves."
In the coming days, I'll be scouting out the most inspired information floating around, to keep you (and me) vibing on the highest possibilities. Thoughts?Getty Images
