A NEW CYCLE

“We have learned so much . . . there still remains much to learn. We are not going in circles; we are going upwards. The path is a spiral.” Herman Hesse, Siddhartha

           In mid-March we began a new cycle when we entered Aries at the spring equinox. The zodiacal calendar is a progression, both on a personal level and on a higher, greater purpose level. As we grow our selves, so we also attempt to grow humanity. The progression around the zodiac explains the growth.

Aries – Here I AM! Bursting onto the earthly plane, still with the remembrance of where we came from.

Taurus – I can touch, eat, throw things! Learning the right use of personal resources.

Gemini – there’s two of us in the room; I must learn to communicate and share my toys!

Cancer –I recognize that I am part of a whole family in which negotiation and respect must be learned; the Family of Man.

Leo – playing, showing off and falling in love for the first time; ultimately, unconditional love.

Virgo – the first recognition that this “other” part of me is Divine and the urgent need to nurture it.

Libra – the recognition that an Other is as important as I am; the Sacred Marriage with the Highest Partner.

Scorpio –I get tested as to my commitment to that Other and to the Journey.

Sagittarius – I and my partner are One and now it is about learning focus, direction and discipline; the Path has so many distractions.

Capricorn – The ambition to climb to the peak of the mountain, fall at the feet of the Master. Aquarius – after seeing the big picture, receiving enlightenment I need to share it with others, with All.

Finally, Pisces when I realize this one lifetime is such a tiny drop in the bucket. It’s time to recapitulate, go deep inside, into the Mystery to prepare for the next cycle. We can do better, always.

 Everyone: Not a single retrograde in the sky.
