Earth in Balance

Where do we go from here?

As the sun slips below the horizon these nights, I notice the change of seasons with the turning of the Earth. Another cycle is coming to an end.

The Equinox approaches, a point of balance in the solar year when day and night are of equal length. The waxing Moon dances with Venus in the western sky.

The Evening Star will disappear soon, to travel through the underworld of deep transformation as she prepares for her next journey. Cycles within cycles, all is change.

At sunset I contemplate the enormity of the challenges we face. What are we harvesting, individually and as a people, from the tremendous opportunity we've had this year to redirect? Have we seized the chance to change, to craft a new way of being, to initiate a new sequence for the times ahead, beyond 2012?

As an astrologer, I know this opportunity won't come along again. We have two years to turn things around on planet Earth. And within that two years, this is the time to commit to making it happen.

What's It All About?

The way the planets align form special portals for the transmission of specific cosmic frequencies. In 2010, the planets have lined up with points in deep space that have sent our earthly reality into a tailspin. The Grand Cardinal Cross formed by planets in our solar system aligns with the center of our galaxy and the center of the supergalactic cluster that includes the Milky Way. With this Grand Cross, the Universe has engineered an unavoidable wake-up call. We're supposed to be paying attention.

Ways these energies might play out in our lives include sudden illness, accidents, career changes, relocation, and the loss of loved ones, relationships or your home. Depression is common. Many are diving headlong into addictions. At the same time, many are reporting sublime spiritual experiences, accelerated healing, an abundance of new opportunities, magic and synchronicity. Through crisis and triumph, we perceive the hand of the Divine at play in our everyday lives.

Prophets and sages, elders and rishis, yogis and shamans throughout the ages have known this day would come. The world is turning inside out as the rate of change accelerates on planet Earth. This truth has been prophesied since ancient times, encoded in the Mayan calendar and facilitated by the divine intelligence of the cosmos.

We can choose to align with the galactic forces and collaborate with the Universe in shaping the way things go from here. Or we can resist and try to hold on as the creative-destructive energies wrench the past from our grip.

Equinox-Full Moon Portal

We have another supreme opportunity to attune to these universal forces next week.

In a display of cosmic synchronicity, the solar and lunar cycles dovetail this year as the Harvest Full Moon coincides with the Libra Equinox. Within hours on September 22-23, the Sun and Moon align with Jupiter and Uranus first, then cross into Libra and Aries to form a portal with the Supergalatic Center. Pluto and the lunar nodes complete the cross in Capricorn-Cancer and echo the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on June 26 this year. Cosmic energies stream to Earth to support our evolution.

This rare sequence is an extended moment of balance, a point of initiation. The effects of prayer, meditation and ritual go quantum as the planets align. The Galactic Initiation Portal occurs overnight September 22/23 and culminates as the Moon crests to full in the wee hours of Thursday morning.

As the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico and natural disasters around the world have shown us repeatedly, our world is out of balance. The time for change is now.

Don't miss this opportunity to align with the cosmos and decide to make a difference, to step forward as an empowered co-creator living your purpose at this critical time. The details of what that might look like don't matter. The focus right now is the commitment. The way and the how will be shown.

The Equinox-Full Moon portal next week is about taking action and making the changes that will carry us into a higher vibration. As Earth's future hangs in the balance, change isn't a choice anymore. Our survival depends on it.

Autumn Equinox-Harvest Moon Teleconference

On Monday, September 20, we'll preview the Equinox-Harvest Moon alignment and share ideas for actualizing the potential of this portal through intent, prayer, ritual and meditation. Join others from around the world as we celebrate the change of seasons and attune to the planetary energies at this special time.

We'll also give the celestial forecast for the next several months, including the hotspots to watch for, what to expect and how to attune to the energies. Highlights include:

Autumn Equinox (Spring in the Southern Hemisphere)
The Galactic Cross
New and Full Moons
Venus in the Underworld
Samhain/Beltane Gateway
Planetary Retrogrades
December-January Eclipse Preview

The event will be recorded, so you don't need to be live on the call to participate. When you register, you'll also receive a copy of my 2010-2012 Astro Preview as a study guide.

Shift 2010

Since November last year, we've been exploring the meaning and opportunity in the extraordinary planetary configurations of 2010. Here are links to some of the articles. I encourage you to research the interpretations of others, too, who have keyed in on the importance and potential of 2010.

It is such a privilege to be here, now, in this magical twilight between world ages. As I stand each night in the glow of the Sun setting silently over the Pacific, I pray that we will awaken to this opportunity of a lifetime, that we won't miss this chance to change, to evolve, to embrace love and choose life.

Cosmic Time

In my book, Cosmic Time, we explore the 2012 cycle shift and what it means for us in our day-to-day lives. How do we make our way through the tremendous changes we encounter every day? Where is all this change leading? The book focuses on personal and planetary transformation within a cosmic context. The content is relevant and timely.
