The Phoenix Re-Awakens - Part 1

The undercurrents of change are growing ever stronger these days. With Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Aries, Uranus in Aries and Saturn and Pluto both still retrograde, there is a sense of a huge global shift going on physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Who we are, what we are, where we are going etc are all under the spotlight now as we begin to realise that we are in fact the masters of our own destiny. Mercury retrograde is an ongoing reminder for each of us to be aware of the power of our thoughts as they create our reality.

Who we are is one of those age old questions that can become dizzyingly confusing when we sit down and think about it. In terms of geological time, we are but the blink of an eye; yet, in terms of the Universe, we are everything and everything is One. Perhaps there is no answer to the question, but it doesn’t stop us seeking it out!

There is a great deal of chaos around at the moment, a sense of movement and shifting perspectives. Freedom of thought, action and speech seem more important now, as does free expression. Underneath the chaos is a more serene and subtle flow of energy which is transforming and re-energising. It is as though through the chaos and the rubble, the phoenix is preparing to rise up from the ashes stronger, more vibrant and beautiful than ever before.

It can be hard to discern between personal inner shifts and collective ones on all levels. In some ways it feels as though the boundaries that naturally separate us that make us individuals is thinning out as we connect more and more with everyone and everything around us. In many ways we are becoming more awake and more aware of life.

Yet we need to stay focused in order to find true clarity and vision in life. For most of us, our own dreams and goals naturally complement the whole for they are altruistic and far-reaching. The more of us that can achieve these goals, the happier the world will become. At the same time, there is no reason why we cannot live in comfort, worry free, debt free with abundance freely flowing in our lives. This is what makes the world go around, and the more of us that can live this way, the stronger the human wave that will be sent around the world helping others to do the same.

Living simply and with more meaning are strong and important themes now. Letting go of the unnecessary trappings and materialism of the 21st century seems important, as we welcome a more holistic way of living, one that lives in harmony with the earth and the other beings that live here.
