As the end of the calendar year approaches, many of us will be looking back at the many challenges and situations we have had to face in the previous twelve months. Times of joy, achievement and success, but also times of loss, pain and sorrow. For most of us it has been a huge struggle to make our commitments and provide for our families. On the World stage we find ourselves at the mercy of our Governments and of Nature, or so it would seem. Planet Earth is undergoing a profound transformation, and as we are her children, so are we. So, how best to manage the process of change, and can we use our own will and potentials to forge a better future for us and humanity? Thankfully, we are privy to many tools and advice on how to use them. Positivity is foremost in the kit, and I’m not talking about the blind unrealistic kind that is basically denial. Having a look at your reactions, standing back and being our own observer, noticing that we could perhaps have managed that a bit differently, being less critical. On the subject of criticism, also be kinder to yourself, on noticing your negativity, don’t give yourself a hard time, let it go. If you need to say sorry, do so sincerely, then get back on your bike and pedal on! On New years day we greet 2014 with the first New Moon of the year, and an active T square formation in powerful Cardinal signs, and Uranus will Square Pluto. Can we also use the power of our own astrology to navigate our way through the years events, can we ride the wave, as lovely Astrologer Lyn Birkbeck would say, or will we struggle and fall? In my opinion, its about how we react to any given situation, and employing as many help methods as we need to support our progress and infer meaning to our time as citizens of planet Earth. I send you all blessings and courage in this coming 2014, may it be an awakening and illuminating time for you, and may you thrive and prosper in all aspects of your life.
As the old saying goes, “Be humble, for you are made of the Earth, Be noble for you are made of the Stars”
