I received this email today from a reader:
I wonder if you have any comments to make, astrologically speaking, on the date just passed of 28th October 2011, which some eminent people like Carl Calleman, Barbara Hand Clow and various others of the same calibre have been saying that this date is the real (or spirit of) end of the Mayan Calendar, according to their calculations.
This will be followed on 11.11.11. by the portals opening and a majestic yet gentle energy bringing love to this planet Earth/Gaia for all of us to experience in varying degrees depending on how subtely aware we are individually.
Do you see a specific alignment on that date, and will you be mentioning it in the journal for the 7th of November?
Thank you for your questions!
Astrologically speaking, the most important influences right now are the upcoming eclipses, as well as the building Pluto-Uranus square. Even though the square is not exact until next summer, Pluto's impact has shown to start building in effect as soon as the planet turns direct and starts moving toward the aspect in question. Pluto went direct on September 16.
The Pluto-Uranus square is a very big part of the transitional times we are experiencing. It is in effect now through 2016, and it will be exact seven times between 2012 and 2015.
On November 11 (the day after Mars enters Virgo and two days after Neptune goes Direct), the only exact astrological aspect of import is Pluto quintile Saturn. And yes, I will talk about that in next week's Journal -- but, by itself, this aspect is not the life-changing type of influence that one would expect to see for a date that has received so much attention and anticipation. Still, I think it bears exploring, so I will do so and see what unfolds for the Journal.
That being said, it is very clear to me personally that something is "up" energetically. In my experience, it started about 10 days ago, on October 21-22. My meditations have been very different, and there's a strong sense of a spiral movement. This has continued throughout the day sometimes, so that there is often a vague sense of vertigo. I've explained it to friends as feeling like centrifugal force -- like the feeling we had as children when we grabbed both of our best friend's hands and then both of us leaned back, spinning in a circle.
I asked my energy practitioner about the dizziness yesterday. Her sense was that it was the effect of the heightened energies running into blockages in our physical/emotional bodies, and moving through. So a positive in that regard.
There has been a great deal of anticipation about the date 11-11-11, and my feeling is that there is a joint agreement between humanity and our cosmic partners to take advantage of this anticipation. If so many people are expecting and hoping for a leap in consciousness, and our other-dimensional support team is also on board -- the results could be quite exciting! Even if there are not huge astrological aspects exact on that day...
Even when we consider numerology, this upcoming date does not have the huge impact we would expect. The numbers of the date are actually 11-11-4 (the numbers of the year 2011 add up to 4, not 11). The actual 11-11-11 date numerologically was November 11, 2009.
Again -- that being said, I also know something important does seem to be occurring. I'm guessing, though, that it's only one step in our "ascension" process, not a final leap that deposits us at an endpoint. Because, truth be told, there are no endpoints!
