Autumn Equinox: What Happened?
September 23rd, 2019
There are nuances to energy shifts. Not everybody feels them in the same way Every major shift (such as solstices and equinoxes) resonates with one’s own particular state in one’s own particular journey. There is a purpose in each of them, however, that flows from one to the next, presenting in each a major theme of movement that is universal, regardless of how it is used.
This autumn equinox brought an especially strong “hit” of powerful energy in no uncertain terms. Even those who don’t pay any attention to equinoxes felt it, I’m sure– even if they didn’t recognize it. If not, that is unfortunate, because it is becoming more and more important to recognize “what hits you,” so to speak. If it is a surge of energy, it would be a very bad idea to try to hit it back, for example. (Nonetheless, we are seeing a lot of people doing that who subsequently appear to be deranged.)
In a nutshell, here is how the equinox “hit” me:
Whatever we desired/began/ were moving toward at the end of last year is/will be gelling over the coming months into a more solid manifestation.
How it gells may surprise you, because we have spent most of the year clearing trauma– in all of our lifetimes– and it’s been ROUGH. We’ve been going through loss, defeat, depression, even hopelessness. But the keywords are GOING THROUGH. Because we had to. In order to get to where we want to be. Comprendo?
It will be good to hang onto that awareness over the coming months, because the way you choose to see the future will unfold exactly as you see it in the NOW. To that end, there is a very powerful energetic tool in your power toolkit called OPTIMISM.
USE it! Continuously! OPTIMISM. Let it guide your actions and then… SURPRISE!!
“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so. If you assume there is no hope, you guarantee there will be no hope.”
