Saturn Retrograde February 2012. The Law is the Law
What’s the best thing about 2012? 2013. That’s because at last, we will actually know what 2012 has brought. Millions of people will start living their lives again instead of waiting around for some magic date to keep them from having to learn who they are.
For an astrologer, I’m not much given to making predictions, but I’ll make one now. What I’d like you to do is go outside and take a moment to tune into the smells, the sounds, the feeling of nature. My prediction is that a year from now, you’ll be able to go tune into much the same feeling. And two years from now, and for a long time to come.
The Millenialist aspect of the 2012 phenomena exists only in the human sphere. Nature herself – everything not “endowed” with human-style thinking – is not freaking out about the Mayan calendar.
This Millenialism is definitely not unique in our history, nor will it be the last time we figure out exactly when it’s all gonna change. But if you’re a tree or a bird, or whatever, there’s nothing more or less intense about today than yesterday or last year or 20 years ago.
I think there is a lot of evidence that we are going through a “shift,” but in my opinion what is going to change the most in my lifetime is our relationship with nature. For a couple hundred years, more or less, we’ve enjoyed a sense of “dominion” over nature – and look where it’s gotten us. Nature is, shall we say, reasserting itself. Maybe someday we’ll understand how Nature senses us. For now, I strongly encourage everyone to work on their sense of Nature.
A friend of mine said recently that he thought that all of this 2012 stuff was coming from a collective sense of guilt for what we’ve done to Nature and was an expression of a desire for redemption – just in a New Age, Jesus-light way that allowed for our dogmatic resistance to dogma.
Not to say that there’s no power in our imagination. In fact, to me the most interesting ideas coming out of this Mayan/Millenialist/Revivalist stew have to do with what we’re learning about the power of our beliefs and perceptions. Whether you’re listening to Abraham or on the cutting edge of biology, this Law of Attraction stuff seems to be where the “shift” is taking us.
The Law of Attraction is the kind of thing that when people learn about it they rush off and really go at it for a while. Kind of like a diet or something. It’s hard to stick with it. It IS a magic bullet, but it takes an enduring faith in The Universe, which turns out to be something like Jesus. And our minds are extremely resistant to faith – especially if it has to do with personal responsibility.
And ultimately, using the Law of Attraction has to do with taking responsibility – not just for what you want but also for what you’ve got. You kind of have to accept that you’ve attracted what you’ve got in order to let go of resistance to it which will just end up drawing more of it to you.
In other words, the Law is the Law, and we get what we ask for. So whatever you’ve got is what you asked for. And for most people, that is too much to accept and so they try to spin responsibility for what they’ve got on to other people – bad people, politicians, them, reptiles, etc….
For the Law of Attraction to work, it has to be the Law. You asked for it, you got it – and in general I would say that what you’ve got is karmic and it has to do with teaching you something and what you’re learning to do is ask for what you want. Otherwise, you end up spinning around in an eddy of what you want turning into not what you want because you can’t believe that you could possibly have wanted what you’ve got, so then you have to go learn it again.
The idea that in 2012 we are evolving into a state of Unitive Consciousness is the most exciting expression of the potential in the energy of this year. Yet it brings with it a need to accept that we also have a collective vibrational frequency. And very few of the people who are excited about Unitive Consciousness are thinking about the responsibility that comes with it. It’s hard enough to believe that what you’ve got is what you’ve been asking for without having to accept that what WE’VE got is what WE’VE been asking for.
Chem-trails, drones, NDAA, you name it. The way things are is exactly what we’ve been asking for. Otherwise, the Law would only kinda be the Law, which would mean that it’s not the kind of thing a person or collection of people can lean on.
But here’s the good news…. The Law is the Law, and Unitive Consciousness is real, and we are on the brink of becoming a happier, more loving, more connected species. All that’s needed is to accept where we are and start vibrating the feeling of the world we want to live in. Together.
All of the evidence says that the power of our collective vibrations can heal people, water, the air, and bring peace and harmony to the planet.
The astrological evidence says that we are on the cusp of a new Worldview. Throughout history are periods when humanity’s relationship with the Universe changes dramatically. The most recent of these periods was 500 years ago, during the Copernican Revolution. During that time the Earth went from flat to round, from the center of the Universe to a ball spinning through space around the Sun.
Although it is really difficult to do, I invite you to think of what it meant to fully undergo that change in awareness. Use your own power of empathy and imagination to really FEEL what it was like to grow up on an Earth that was flat and about which all the celestial bodies rotated. The popular argument against Copernicus was that anyone in their right mind could feel that the Earth wasn’t moving – and if it was, we’d all fly off of it. Although people experienced gravity every day, it was so taken for granted that it wasn’t recognized as a discrete energy. (Which is exactly the point I’m trying to make about the Law of Attraction).
A really interesting thing to do is to look at who was most resistant to that shift in awareness and think about why they were resistant. We were at that time the primary reason for all of creation, and it was very difficult to let go of that sense of self-importance (even if it came with a ton of guilt). The whole Monarchic/Church-centric political structure relied on a hierarchical order wherein divinity flowed down into the human sphere through special people. The idea was that certain people were endowed with an innate connection to the divine by birth and that through them we could try to ameliorate the sins of the flesh, etc…. The division between the secular and the laity, between nobility and peasantry was threatened by Copernicus.
Today, divine right is anyone’s to claim. But it’s interesting to see how many people are thinking of themselves as having more of it than others. Unitive Cosciousness for the few seems to be a widely accepted feature in this “Shift.” Which of course makes it no shift at all.
The notion that this “shift” is for the few is extremely archaic. It is the escape valve for those who cannot believe that in their purity they could have anything to do with the way things actually are. Have you ever been around one of those “My kids would never…” parents? Well, those of you out there who are part of the chosen few are emanating that same frequency. Quit it, will you?
Astrologically, the indications are that we humans are ripe for a major shift in how we see the world. The outer-planet alignments are very similar to how they were in that crucial 1450-1550 AD period in history. A person could describe the Copernican revolution as having split Science from Faith. I think the shift we are experiencing now has to do with reuniting Faith and Science, and that the Law of Attraction in combination with Unitive Consciousness is the cutting edge of what’s changing about how we see the Universe.
Oh yeah, and Saturn just went retrograde, and the (r)evolutionary pressures are starting to ramp back up. Over the next 10 months, we are going to see the wildest expressions of human experience imaginable. Aren’t we lucky to be here for the ride?
Nature just wants to be loved. She is like a beautiful woman who has a story, and some scars. Are you only seeing the scars? Or do you see the beauty as an expression of the whole story, richer for the struggle?
Love what you have, and you shall begin to have what you love. You have this world, and this time, and all of us. May you come into acceptance. The Law is the Law.
