Are you tuned into the natural cycles of the year?
Why would you want to connect with Summer and Winter Solstices and the Spring and Fall Equinoxes? They tell us of the cycles that are occurring around us whether we are connected to these cycles or not. Last week was a perfect after Summer Solstices time the male Solstices. It is a time where things shift. The maximum of the sun influence, the fire, the growth and with that growth that the sun causes we must remember that too much sun burns causes death or cells and more. We all want life but not death yet we saw allot of high profile deaths. This brings us to look at legacy and what we leave behind and what leaves us behind. We forget that birth and death are inextricably linked. Look at your business when one thing takes off you know you need to look for the aspect or product or person that will fall behind or fail, death. It's projection ecstasy of the light energy and watching it's opposite death and seeing where that is occurring.
Fall Equinox is about harvest. It is the time for bringing in of the last crops in many places, the gratitude for the bounty that has been given the balance of equal sun and moon energy, equal male and female energy. Time to party because a cycle is complete and contemplate the next cycle, which is more restive in agriculture societies. Here we need to see what is allowing us to reap profits and what is not and make decisions about what stays and what needs to go. What needs to fall away?
This time is the beginning of going within for the vision time, which is at its height on Winter Solstices. This is the female Solstices, which has the most moon energy, and gives us the unveiling of the mysteries. We often lose this one totally to holiday madness. We party and get frustrated with families or flee to avoid it all. Truly it is about bringing the seers together so you can divine what is needed for the next cycle of your life, business, and relationships. Now we squander this sacred time. It is license to eat too much, too many sweets, which is the female sweetness aspect and drink too much to lose ourselves because the longing is really to dive in deeply. So we do a fake dive in with drugs and drink. Go fishing in your own ponds and see what is not known that needs to be brought into the known. After Winter Solstices we often feel depleted because of too much output and too little input. We didn't go within, we try to set a new course for our lives, and businesses and we call it making New Year's resolutions. They often don't succeed because we haven't really vetted these ideas deeply and we don't set the support tools in place to succeed. Support is innately feminine.
This moves into the Spring Equinox, which is all about planting. The planting of seeds both physical and within your business and relationships. What do you want to sprout in the next phase? This is the time to till the soil of your business dig up the old and ad fertilizer. The organic kind of course so it won't come back to bite you later on. This is a time to be more conscious of what you are planting in your own back yard (business and personal relationships) and what you are planting with your words, thoughts and money (energy) in the larger arena. For what is planted will come up or may die but it is seeking life. Make sure it is something you want to live on after you. Spring Equinox is also the balance of Sun and Moon. Fall is harvest and digging up and spring is planting nourishing the vision time. The spring comes from the visions of the winter mysteries being unveiled and the fall comes from the fire of the sun bringing everything into the light of day. Moon is a mantle a cover, darkness more concealment and the Sun is everything will be brought forth, judges, projected, pushed into center stage. Very different cycles.
If you gear your business to make use for these cycles you will be most happy because you will use the energy that is available and it will make things easier. When you go against the flow of the cycles you can force it but it is the swimming upstream deal and if you are not a salmon then get into the groove of what is and use these energies.
Remember that the Sun light brings it's opposite loss of light, which we call death. The Moon attracts the unseen to be unveiled and often what we want to keep veiled loses its mask and come into the open naked. Look at the news at these times. Reflect back upon your own life, secrets come out into the open during the holiday times. Make your own mental notes of what you remember here within your own life.
Mark these cycles on your calendars. Schedule events that will support these aspects of you life. Make decisions so you can utilize the energies of these days and oh yes meditate more during these times. These are great times to go on a spiritual retreat to recharge you and to create a separation of what is for what is to come. Great planning times. Great times to take a break and be with that which matters to you.
