Looking Back to Look Ahead

On this auspicious day, Mars and Venus cross from Capricorn into Aquarius, conjuncting at the same degree as the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction on Winter Solstice 2020. I know many people feel uncertain about the road ahead. Given cyclical time, sometimes a peek at the past allows a glimpse of the future.

No matter where you are or where you’ve been, you can choose where to focus your energy. I’m always struck by how different people’s experiences are even when these individuals share a location, certain natal aspects, or life experiences. We are much more than what happens to us. We also happen to the life around us.

Can you find the beauty in stark scenery?

Can you embody hints of Spring before Winter melts away?

Can you look with curiosity at the road ahead?

Thanks to David for yesterday’s photos. Wishing everyone the gift of presence as we move through multiple realities and chaotic nodes.

  2. Speaking of multiple realities, many years ago I was introduced to the idea of the spiral being a basic mode of life. It was from a handbook on macrobiotics, by one of the modern “founders” of that movement. The basic concept is that we don’t cycle at all, we actually spiral, implying a 3rd dimension—as well as an expansion that is always occurring. From this, I intuited that from the 2D perspective we are cycling past the same points of reference but from 3D and above we are actually growing into a 3rd dimension as well, so we’re not actually repeating old stuff (although if we’re not done with an issue it will seem to be very similar!). In a spiral, the line (i.e., us) keeps passing the same 2D points on the graph, but it is actually in a higher and larger position (either on the z axis, or also just expanding on the 2D graph surface as well, so in both 2D and 3D dimensions a spiral is expanding). Hope that was picturable.
