December is shaping up to be a key point in our process of
ascension and our ability to manifest .  December
holds links to the of the 3:3:3 Stargate of March 2010.  In
March we reached a turning point in our journey of healing where it
became essential that we construct the concept of Unity Consciousness
into something real and solid within our experience.

In March it
became crucial to actively begin balancing your hearts and minds, your
physical life with your Spiritual life, and to bring this balance into
your reality.  The energies supported you in freeing yourself from fear
and doubt expanding you into deeper realms of compassion and love, and
thus developing Unity Consciousness within.

In December the
3:3:3 Stargate will again be activated igniting those areas within
yourself and your life, where you lack unity, compassion and love.  The
energy will be released in such a way that the thinking and behaviour
of everyone upon the planet will be significantly altered.  You will be
compelled to break out of old attitudes and habits.  Difficult
situations may unexpectedly shift into crises and fragile circumstances
may simply detonate and new crises arise demanding urgent attention. 
These rapidly unfolding events and situations will force tough
decisions and the determination to move through uncertainly and delays
must come from deep within you.

For all its transformative and
destructive power, the energy of December will be profoundly Spiritual
and psychological.  We will be directly confronted with our limitations
and our failures.  Our illusions will collide with harsh realities,
motivating us to powerfully change.  The energies will not allow us to
return comfortably to our old ways.  This will bring a desire to gain a
much deeper understanding of our situations and experiences and a
strong determination to make profound and lasting changes.

Personally,
for me, the understandings and realisations of this year have been
like a breath of fresh air.  For many years (lifetimes) the concept of
self-love has eluded me.  What does it actually mean to love yourself? 
How do you go about loving yourself?  I have understood the concept on
an intellectual level, but have had trouble actualising this within
myself.  This year, with the help and support of the energies, I got
it!  I was gifted with the capacity to feel compassion for myself. 
Compassion for the person I have become, compassion for the child that I
was.  I was able to see and understand the reasoning behind the often
‘crap’ choices I have made and felt compassion for the woman that made
those choices.  It has been a truly profound realisation for me that
self-love comes only when we are able to feel compassion for ourselves.

As
we move those these times and the new and increasingly difficult
planetary combinations of energy, frustrations will rise and emotional
turbulence will intensify.  For us to cope with these powerful energies
it is vital that we awaken compassion and love.  We are all moving
through our individual processes and it is essential that we realise the
benefits of being gentle and kind to ourselves and others.  I
encourage you all to take to heart the wisdom of the ‘Four Agreements’
by Don Miguel Ruiz.  They are:

1.      Be Impeccable with your word

2.      Don’t take anything personally

3.      Don’t make assumptions

4.      Always do your best

December 5th, 2010

The
New Moon in December will be in the astrological sign of Sagittarius. 
In Sagittarius the Moon is visionary, optimistic and expansive.  It
seeks to satisfy the thirst for knowledge and truth, blending the heart
and Soul with reality.  This New Moon does promise a lovely joyful
energy.  It seems like a very long time since we have encountered an
energy that will encourage us to relax and celebrate instead of
undergoing another challenging lesson.

New Moons signify rebirth,
new beginning and the start of a new cycle.  During this cycle our
will be highlighted aiding us in transforming our
thinking.  A focused and penetrating mind gifts you with the ability to
shift through the haze of denial and cut through the fog of confusion
enabling you to joyfully delve into the deeper parts of yourself. 
Moving into these deeper aspects brings to your awareness hidden
motivations and desires revealing that which is consciously or
unconsciously driving you forward.

Meditation and any Spiritual
practice is about quietening the logical mind so that intuition can
flow through.  This New Moon is reminding you about the importance of
these practices and the need to observe your life, questioning where
you are going and why you are going there.  Use the knowledge you gain
towards something productive.  Without deflating the enthusiasm and
spontaneity of this New Moon direct its excitement into setting goals
and choosing your direction over the coming months.

Mercury
retrogrades, again, from December 10th to 30th bringing communication
break downs, causing delays.  Expect resolution and closure to be pushed
into the indeterminate future.

Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse

The
Full Moon in December holds a total eclipse occurring at the time of
the Summer / Winter Solstice on the 21st December 2010.  This alignment
gives special significance to the Full Moon and indicates that its
effects will be far greater than those of an average eclipse.  The
eclipse becomes even more significant and powerful due to its location
near the .  The Galactic Centre is of our Sun. 
It is a spectacular source of energy, motivation and purpose.  It is
also the source of most of the gravitational energy in our Galaxy.

The
Lunar Eclipse occurring so close to the Galactic Centre magnifies and
adds power and focus to the energies already being manifested.  The
power beaming in from the Galactic Centre via our Sun will open our
hearts, minds and bodies in ways that will assist us in aligning with
the flow of energy, supporting our ability to fulfil the original intent
for our lives.

The original intent for our lives is not
characterised by the beliefs and principles of society, but rather by
the inherent knowing of our Spirit.  Your original intent may e to
simply embody love and compassion and or to channel the accelerating
light codes of energy within the world.

The themes of compassion
and truth seem to be very much our focus.  This Lunar Eclipse will
bring an extraordinary opportunity for us to bring about new ways of
being with regards to those with whom we share the Earth Mother.  We
are called to keep our mind on the Oneness of all beings and to act in a
higher more authentic way.  As 2010 draws to a close this is an
opportune time for us to focus on the Spirit of Oneness and to bring to
the world a Spirit of living truthful compassion for all beings.
