The Year of Choice: Will You Take the Path of the Chicken or the Phoenix?

With the release and purification that took place in 2016, we cleared the decks of anything we don’t want, can’t take forward, or needed to surrender. We are all changed in some way as a result.

We now head into a new year that will start a brand new 9-year cycle in numerology. This new cycle will immediately take us an octave higher than just a few weeks ago. We must now choose what we really want and seed those desires for the next cycle.

Pluto in Capricorn – The End of an Era

This new 9-year cycle also happens to also mark the midpoint of Pluto in Capricorn astrology transit (death/rebirth of large government/institutions) that started in 2008 and completes in 2026. In 2008 we saw the beginning of this transit with the collapse of the banking industry. It was an opportunity for serious reform of our financial systems, but it was instead band-aided with a bailout.

The inevitable collapse of old ways of living, which is governments, authority, and patriarchal institutions that don’t evolve in accordance with Earth’s energies, will continue over the course of this transit. The instability following the presidential election is a sign of more to come.

As the old falls away, energy will continue to be proportionately available to create the New, which is personal power, community, and conscious corporations.

We’ve been primarily living in the third dimension where we’ve been governed through control and where belief systems have been based on what we’ve been told in black and white terms. Personal power and personal sovereignty are becoming the new government. With this comes personal choice and with that comes more personal responsibility. This is why the recent election has caused so many to wake up to their soul’s purpose.

Fourth Dimension as the New Normal

The Law of Attraction, which was once only consciously used by the rich (i.e. Napolean Hill’s Think and Grow Rich), is now the default way of living as we move more fully into the fourth dimension. Our life is not based upon what others tell us we should do, but instead upon personal desire. This is the bridge to the fifth dimension where intuition, compassion, and heart-based living are fully accessible.

With the unpredictability we experienced in 2016, it’s hard to believe that what we want matters, but it has never been more important. We must get in alignment with our desires - our soul’s path. This is what will lead us to a higher and better way of living. The 2017 (2+0+1+7=1) 1-year is the perfect opportunity to do just that.

A 1-Year of Individuation

A 1-year is about new beginnings, individuation, unity, moving forward, new ideas, innovation, and choice. It is only when we choose and commit to a path can the energy gather around it and gain momentum. But we must know what we want which comes only through the process of individuation.

This is one of my favorite quotes and sums up the energy for this 1-year:

“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” – John Anster

While individuation seems to imply life is all about “me, me, me” and putting one’s needs ahead of others, it’s actually right on course to serving a higher purpose through which consciousness can come forth and we all benefit.

This quote from Carl Jung says it perfectly, “Individuation does not shut one out from the world, but gathers the world to oneself.”

Individuation is the path to wholeness.

2017 Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster

In Chinese Astrology, 2017 is the Year of the Fire Rooster that officially begins on January 28th. Last year’s unpredictable Monkey is replaced with a slightly more reliable Rooster.

The Rooster fits well with a 1-year – they are both loud, precocious, proud, resilient, hard workers, leaders, independent, and confident. You can see how 2017 is a vibrational match to Trump – red comb over and all.

Like anything, there is a lower and higher path to this year’s energy of the Fire Rooster. The lower version is the Fire Chicken and the higher version is the Phoenix.

With the number “7” also being prominent in this year’s numerology, there is a spiritual aspect to this year where we all have the opportunity to rise from the ashes of this last year and transcend to our highest path.

This is where our personal choice lies this year:

Path of the Chicken                                                  Path of the Phoenix

Talk your walk                                                           Walk your talk

Act reactively                                                             Take intuitive steps

Judge others for taking action                                 Take inspired action

Complain about situations                                       See higher view of situations

Continuing old patterns                                           Transcending old patterns

Judge others for belief systems                               Love others regardless of beliefs

Follow the “should’s”                                                Follow your inner guidance


Chicken little or Phoenix rising? Rise with me and let’s make this the best year yet!
