This has been a difficult spring and summer for many people. Migraines are more active. Our body is really feeling the aches and pains from our youth. We are reliving some of our old issues that we thought we had released long ago. It seems like there are windows of relief, but overall, these times are tough on us. Add to this the amount of people crossing over at this time, and it can be quite frustrating and saddening.
First, let me say, the physical, emotional, and mental changes we are experiencing are happening with everyone, so we are not alone. I don’t know much about the planets. Even after hearing or reading about them, I easily forget what I read. Something resonates with me, I say, “Okay, that explains a lot,” and I let it go. But what I do remember is that the planets alignment is in conjunction with the Mayan calendar, which sees December 21, 2012 as a pivotal day for our world.
Some doomsdayers are predicting the end of the world, but most of us realize that is not what the calendar signifies. However, there is an end to the previous calendar cycle. This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae have been proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by mainstream scholarship.
When the planets align in certain formations, the change in the Earth’s energy is strong enough to affect us physically, mentally, and emotionally. Anyone who steps into a classroom or ER on a full moon knows exactly what I am saying. Our bodies are made up of around 60% water, so we are affected just as the tides are affected by the lunar moon along our coasts.
These are the major planets affecting us right now, with their dates of being active in our solar system:
- Mars – July 3 to August 21 (movement, energy, action, courage, fear, creativity)
- Pluto – November 2008 to March 2023 (regeneration, change, power, influence, government)
- Pluto Retrograde – April 10 to September 18 (recurrent patterns)
- Uranus – March 11, 2011 to May 15, 2018 (freedom, vision, insight, radical behavior)
- Venus – April 3 to August 7 (gossip)
- Neptune – February 3, 2012 to March 30, 2025 (mystical, intuitive, imagination, desire to leave)
- Mercury Retrograde – through August 7 (chaos, uncertainty)
With all of these planets interacting at the same time, we begin to understand why our bodies are being so affected. Indeed, these are very different planetary alignments than what our bodies and minds are used to. We are adjusting to them as quickly as they come and go.
If you journal, it is interesting to go back to some of these dates to see if there are any ah-ha moments. And it is also interesting to note that some of these planets are going to be with us for a long time. I am particularly interested in the planets Pluto and Neptune, which will be spending a lot of time with us. We can see governments from around the world struggling right now, and many of us are feeling some real intuitive awakenings. If I get his permission, I will share with you an experience my skeptical husband had this past weekend. Let’s just say, he isn’t very skeptical now. That is the affect of Neptune, and we are all in the same energy to become more aware, if we allow it to happen (or not, in his case).
More will be discussed in the coming days and weeks about this energy of the planets. Until then, wishing you JOY in your hearts!
