We have all weathered the intensity of the month of December with the Holiday dramas and emotional upheavals and now we move into the energy of 2018. Which numerologically is the number 11. The 11 is the number of transcendence. The number 11 is associated with Leonardo da Vinci and the expansion of minds that is clearly happening on so many levels.
“Waking up is hard to do!” That much must be very clear at this moment. All the bubbles have been popped and the shattered glass is strewn all over the floor making movement forward something to contemplate and carefully consider in this minefield of life.
The number 11 has the intention of uplifting the souls to a higher plane of conscious existence and clarity but it can also just as easily fall into the place of Negative Mind and the number 2 (because 1+1=2). That is what we all need to be careful of not co-creating at this time.
I think that last year was enough expansion of power and change for everyone. Now it is about what you are going to do about it? You can fall into the place of criticizing everyone and everything and allowing the negativity to overtake your mind and heart or you can use it as fuel to propel you up and out of this dense illusion and fabrication of those in power whose selfish, childish desires will do anything to get what they want including destroying this amazing and beautiful world the Divine has given us to play in and experience life.
You have a choice. You always have a choice. Growing up and maturing is about understanding the responsibility of that choice and recognizing when it is time to follow another path.
Passion and finding that connection that gives you energy and joy is going to be essential right now. And moving that type of energy in a healthy way is very important as Jupiter in Scorpio till November of next year is not done with shining a very bright light into those hidden places that you hoped no one would ever go. Secrets are going to be revealed more and more and Jupiter in Scorpio is just getting started. Expect many more surprises and the shattering of many careers. Don’t you become one of the victims. Own what is your shadow and learn to fully integrate it in a healthy and constructive fashion.
We are in the space of January and a natural place of New Beginnings. The cards also reflect that with so many Aces in this reading. If you have not yet noticed, your mind and how you think, see, and interact in the world has radically changed. You can no longer have those rose-colored glasses on and the harsh reality of this world is staring everyone in the face. There is great strength that happens when you are fully here and in the present moment, though it is not always a pleasant experience.
The energy right now is also very dark. We are in the darkest time of the year, January, a time of bitter cold, rigidity, and a time of going within. You have to find your own spark as others are no longer in a place to personally keep your fires going, ignite your spirit, or inspire you to move forward.
No one is going to hold your hand this year.
It is going to be all up to you.
Since that is the case, you can really mold and create a very new reality. But those building blocks are broken, as the old consistent buildings of your past self have fallen down and are in a million pieces. You have the material to rebuild but nothing can or will look the same … ever again.
If you have not told yourself that truth yet, then this year is going to be more difficult because without the acceptance of what is right here you cannot possibly be a force that can help manifest the new future.
Each of us is here at this time for a reason. Each of us have a gift to share and give. No, it may not be what your ego wanted to give but there is a need for something that you hold within and trying times cause those gifts to emerge from their long and deep slumber.
Right action is essential because justice is going to be handed out and it is not the type of justice that is in our legal system but a justice of a higher origin related to karma and the hard and firm hand that karma wields at such times. You don’t want to be on the wrong side of that sword.
Within you is a beast. A monstrous beast with power beyond what you have yet expressed in the world. That beast is coming out of the shadows and fully into the light. Embrace your dark shamanic ally in these times. You are being asked to recognize the magic that is held in your darkest self. It is time to find your strength as it reflects out into the world. It is time for your courage to take a risk and step out of the fear by moving through it. If you are afraid of the world you are afraid of your potential. Ego attempts to make you stay within the limitations that you have determined are comfortable and allow you to move smoothly through the world without ruffling any feathers.
But 2018, you are going to ruffle more feathers than you have ever before. In such an atmosphere fear loses its grip on your soul as you could finally care less about what others think related to your voice, choices, or actions.
You will find that those that stick around in your life are also those that choose fearlessness over acceptable social patterns of behavior.
“It is in the acts of social and conscious rebellion that we discover our purpose.”
Fire is coming and how it manifests depends upon how you choose to use it and respect it. If used wisely, it is the essential life-force energy that can change the world. Used unwisely it is equally destructive. Once again, the choice is yours.
You will notice the chains with which you have bound yourself. And how some of those chains are purely mental. The mind loves to tell you what to do. The mind loves to define who you are. But you are pure energy inhabiting a body and that energy can realign your physical body in a multitude of ways if you let it. But first you have to let go of the definition of self that is a yoke around your neck. Aren’t you sick and tired of carrying that sign telling everyone who you are? And isn’t that sign one that someone told you that you were instead of you knowing who you really are? Do you want to live your life expressing someone else’s projection of who you are? Are you sick and tired of others determining the forward progression of your life?
Then it is time. And you can now recognize that the restriction is not worth the “safety” that you thought you were getting in return. Besides that, safety is completely gone anyways. So, don’t hang onto something that is no longer there in the hope that it will magically return.
Choose Change or You are Choosing Death.
There is only change. When you refuse to adjust when all things are pointing in a new direction, the force of your resistance can drain the very life-force from you.
Is that what you want?
Of course not.
I know… the Universe has never put you in such a position or predicament. That is because what was, is now so toxic, that life can only exist when you let your entire old self go.
It is time. You are ready. (Whether you recognize it or not.)
Let the change be slow and conscious.
Let the conditioning melt away to reveal the truth.
Let the choices be life-affirming.
Let those whose fire of fear and hate that is intended to harm others be snuffed out with the compassionate understanding of your own soul.
