Revolution of the Heart

I’m not an Age of Aquarius person. I am not Atlantis and Light. I view myself as rather earthy and more concerned with cabbages than chakras. Yet even I feel something in the air. Protests, revolts and unrest fill the news. Everything feels antsy. As one friend told me, they honestly feel like Phil Collin’s “In the Air Tonight” fits the current atmosphere.

It’s not just Egypt and Libya, or Wisconsin and Ohio. It’s in our very hearts. That Imbolc tide, pushing hidden things forth through earth heavy and compacted with rain and snow, is strong. It causes plants to bloom on the barest scrap of earth in rocky windy terrain. Things are hatching within us, sharp green shoots reaching like daggers toward the sun. This isn’t a comfortable time of year. It isn’t meant to be. It’s fraught with the perilous anticipation of Hope and Life.

So many of my friends are feeling like they are at a crossroads in their life right now. They are searching their hearts, examining their priorities and moving forward with greater purpose. I can’t pretend I’m not there myself. I’m trying to identify the areas of my life that aren’t working and figure out a way to push into spring with new vitality. It’s hard work. It’s the kind of gardening where you water your seeds with sweat and tears.

Yet, the massive unrest in the world feels like more than just Imbolc’s stirrings. Maybe it’s the stirrings of an Age. Of a Greater Wheel of the Eons turning in sync with the Wheel of the Year. I’m not certain. But I can feel it everywhere I go, and see it in every face I meet. It’s like cosmic birth pangs ringing gong-like through the atmosphere. It’s disturbing and inspiring at the same time. I’m both excited and terrified to see what it will bring forth. I’m watching and waiting and listening. Like Mr. Collins, I can feel it in the air…

    I’m also not very new agey myself, but I must admit that it all feels very “2012 Transition” to me.

    lol… Star. We’ve been using Lena Stevens as a nice guidepost for our monthly situation for a long time. Her monthly post at thepowerpath has been amazingly accurate in the past… and she DEFINITELY called this one too.

    From what has gone on recently in the post-PantheaCon period in many pagan circles, I can say that things are shifting and are about to be born…whether it has larger effects than just on our own communities remains to be seen. But, other, larger communities all over the place are certainly moving in ways at present that they have not previously. Who knows what’s in store next? Not even many of the gods, I suspect…

    “I’m not an Age of Aquarius person.”
    Good thing! :) You’d have to be alive at least another 150 years!

    From the standpoint of archetypal astrology though, we’re got a nice line-up of planets in the very independent sign of Aries. By April, the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus will all be there. Uranus, the planet most associated with revolution, entered Aries last year and will stay there for another 8 years. Jupiter will stick around until summer, symbolizing a desire for freedom and justice, and with Mars, a desire to fight for it.

    If one can imagine the solar system as a giant clock, one could say the time for revolutions is here. For all the hype 2012 gets, there’s a lot more going on astrologically this year than next! LOL

      Well, maybe it’s the other side of our ‘normalcy bias’ to really expect the turning of the Ages to be sudden and precisely-timed… at some unspecified time… these things are never that tidy.

      If the Age turned in a day, it wouldn’t take an Age. ;)

    Maybe the earthquakes and tidal waves that are being put forth about 2012 are not external but actually internal.
