As 2011 draws to a close and the long anticipated 2012 is on the horizon, we stand on the fulcrum between the old and the new. From this vantage point, we have a unique perspective from which to view our progress on our path.
These "threshold" times - such as the ends and beginnings of years, phases of the moon, planetary aspects, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. - are highly charged with energy that can be applied toward gaining a clear perspective on our progress so far, helping us make decisions as to how to proceed from here.
Some turn to the metaphysical for guidance, such as doing a Tarot reading or charting planetary aspects or throwing the runes or I Ching or numerology. These tools present guidance in the form of being a "mirror" for one's subconscious mind - showing us the nature of the energies that are surrounding us, giving us a wider perspective on our lives - from which we can make more informed decisions about the next steps on our path. They help us to find the direction of the "flow"...especially powerfully in this dark time of year, when we turn inward (after all the holiday partying, of course) and reunite conciously with our inner/higher selves...
Blessings to all in this upcoming new year - may we find the guidance we need to be what we need to be and do what we need to do - and enjoy every minute of it!
Maybe now we'll find out what all the hoopla was about, eh? :)
