Month, Day 20XX 
Diane's new pictureOnce you become aware, you cannot be unaware. Or, to put it another way, once you wake up spiritually, you cannot go back to sleep.  I had a teacher tell us once that it is the responsibility of those who wake up to assist the rest of the world to awaken.  I was intimidated by his statement - I couldn't imagine how I could possibly have the audacity to think that I could assist anyone else in the amazing process of opening to their very personal spiritual nature. What a job!

I have since begun to understand that I don't have to DO anything and neither do you!  It is in the way we carry ourselves through self honesty, integrity and inner truth that shows others what it is like to awaken.  It is through the example of our lives that carries out into the world and helps to affect change in others.

This is a great time to re-read The Four Agreements by Dom Miguel Ruiz. I believe that, if enough of us live by these very simple tenets. it will have a very profound effect on the rest of the world and none of us will ever fall asleep again!

Agreement One: Be Impeccable with your Word
Agreement Two: Don't Take Anything Personally
Agreement Three:  Don't Make Assumptions
Agreement Four: Always Do Your Best

Marene's Graphic  
The View From Here
By Marene Martensen

Our new year begins with a strong reminder that views, opinions and ways of doing things are often in conflict with positive progress and the good of the whole.  However, the gift of 2012 has been the awareness that conflict resolution is not always about winning and losing or one solution being right.  It can often include the introduction of new ideas, information, alternatives and possibilities.

Here's how it works:  Saturn, the planet of laws, rules, control and the status quo, is in Scorpio, the sign of intensity, investigation and closely held secrets.  Pluto, the planet of power, intensity and secrets, is in Capricorn, the sign of laws, rules, control and the status quo.  Sounds like I'm repeating myself, doesn't it?  This is known as a reciprocal placement.  They are both in the sign that the other one rules.  They are both "in each other's signs".   This makes their energies highly compatible and very strong.  That sounds good and it can be when restraint is exercised and balance is an objective.  Unfortunately neither of these planets is known for balance; and Pluto and Scorpio are not about restraint.  The application of these principles for most of us as individuals is in our quest for security.  More power and control can give us a sense of safety and well being.  But when our need for security slowly begins to demand all of our energy and attention; it's out of balance.

There are two planets whose placement and personalities fly in the face of power, control and secrecy.  Uranus, the planet of revolutionary change, in Aries, the sign of leadership and action; and Jupiter, the planet of expansion and generosity, in Gemini, the sign of information and communication.  Uranus has been in a difficult relationship to Pluto for a few years and will continue for a few more (through 2015).  Most astrologers feel that this conflictive relationship is representative of the ongoing economic crisis.  It is also about the fact that great change comes about slowly and not without a struggle; although breakthroughs do happen from time to time and ought to be celebrated!
That brings us to Jupiter, whose optimism is in a completely incompatible relationship to both Saturn and Pluto, but out there in Gemini as a resource for us to recognize and hopefully utilize for the next six months.  And since this strange configuration was in full force at the Winter Solstice (and the end of the Mayan Calendar), it's possible that we can and should employ the energies of Jupiter in Gemini at every opportunity.

The way this might function in everyday life is as a constant but gentle reminder to:
Emerge from the status quo and whatever circumstances claim too much of our time and energy.
Return to the present moment when we find ourselves lost in the future or the past.
Be open to alternatives, options and possibilities.
Be open to others.  Converse, sort it out, become a good listener.
Be open to the unknown.

If we cultivate these positive characteristics for the next few months it should promote balance, growth  and progress.........     and get us through the rest of the year.
