As we enter the astrological New Year with Aries season, old paradigms are being torn down.
Have strength & know that this is a necessary shift to reframe our current collective consciousness & recalibrate perspective. In a time of great division, we are being asked to see just how connected we truly are. Trust the journey, this beginning will pave the way for an enlightened new world.
In Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk beautifully articulated the American cultural baseline that we are coming from:
We’re the middle children of history. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.
Welcome to the other side of this, the liminal “in-between” state of the unknown. These uncertain times will bear great transformation & bring forth unexpected heroes. See this challenge as an opportunity to redefine yourself, renew your purpose & find real enthusiasm to live.
How often have you thought, “I wish I could just press pause so that I could catch up?” That extra time is being given to you now. Sure, it may not be on your terms but nothing in life ever is. While it may be tempting to binge-watch all your streaming services into a place of numb dissidence, there is another way. Often we put off doing the internal work when we feel as though we are already running behind.
Now you are being called to really look within. See this as an opportunity to find gratitude for the things & people you expect to be there & take for granted. Self reflect & reevaluate your priorities & motivations. There is a much bigger lesson here and if enough people get it there will be a mass awakening. Ask what you can learn from this test & you will find a stronger more disciplined version of yourself on the other side.
Remember who you are, it is time to graduate.
