Autumnal Equinox 2011

“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.” Dr. Viktor Frankl

Stamina and staying calm are key factors at harvest time and this year is no exception. This is a time to specifically look at the harvest we have brought in, whether it is spiritually, emotionally, mentally or physically. After doing this, it is about making decisions around what we share, what we put aside to nourish us during the winter, what we give away. Within the giving away process there is also a message around deciding what we are willing to let go of that is no longer serving us or others. Then putting these decisions into action with a sense of quiet authority. Mid-equinox there is also an opportunity to look at our individual DNA and to gather that harvest too, honouring the lessons passed down by our ancestors and our cultures

It has been a while now that anything that needs to be dealt with can no longer be swept under the carpet. This equinox is about a thorough “autumn clean” in order for us to connect with our own specific vocation or purpose in life. The challenges this equinox will be around irritation at times possibly leading to serious conflict. There is a sense of rubbing against each other which can literally be manifested in bumping into each other, collisions, jostling, hurtful words/criticisms etc. How we respond to our perception will be crucial.

Our sense of purpose, manifesting through irritation, is like a pearl being created by grains of sand rubbing the inside of a shell. Harshness will simply fracture the shell. Working closely with each other will be like forming beautiful strings of natural pearls creating pathways of peace across the earth.

Issues in families will need to be resolved first. Indecisiveness may be misunderstood and taken for fear of confrontation as opposed to needing time to resolve moral dilemmas without judgement. As we work through this particularly around finances, death in all its forms and secrets around sexual issues and sexuality, significant change will come about. Again there is a strong message this equinox to nurture our “hearts” and become the change we truly want to be.....
