Interesting. I was just exploring the feminine and masculine archetypes and how they relate to our personal integrity and then I saw this article. If it's been feeling a bit intense lately, remember it is 2011 - the cusp of 2012. And it is a BIG year for many of us. All of us.

I did an amazing (and unexpected) ritual yesterday with the shedding of my old skin. I think this is happening in just about every paradigm on the planet right now and it is important to realize that we are in good stead and hands.


On the 9th March 2011 we will begin an intense 234 days of transformation and integration leading to a new level of consciousness, according to Mayan Calendar authority Carl Calleman.

The bulk of this article describes the various planetary influences (that began yesterday, Mar 9) that are carrying us through some major collective steps (though the focus is on our individual paths in an amped-up way) and perhaps initiations. In any case, they are things that seem to be common experiences for many of us right now and they may have been feeling extra intense. These include focuses that many of us have been speaking of such as: truly disentangling from family patterning and claiming our inner authority, embracing ourselves as individuals, not letting too much humbleness act as a block to standing fully in our power, and entering into a new and unknown paradigm and leaping into it. Can feel rather wobbly right about now! If you are feeling these things as I have been experiencing just about ALL of them from the article, lol, the message of the day is to slow it down, relax, ride the wave, and trust the process. Love your design!!

I am also personally finding that synchronicities especially in shared information are quite profound at this time.

"Remain true to yourself as well as to the beauty revealed. Retain your personal integrity even in the moment where you are most fully immersed."

Here is the article:
(rather lengthy but worth the time when you can)


The Ninth Wave


On the 9th March 2011 we will begin an intense 234 days of transformation and integration leading to a new level of consciousness, according to Mayan Calendar authority Carl Calleman.  Calleman describes the shift as the Ninth Step in Consciousness – the Universal Underworld, the last step before the completion of the current period of human evolution.  The original step – Cellular Underworld – began over 1 billion years ago.

According to Calleman the next 234 days will consist of periods of intensity lasting 9 days followed by a descending intensity for the next 18 days when we are able to integrate the higher energies. The Ninth Wave is about creating harmony from what has evolved previously, to let go of old personal agenda’s and begin manifesting unity consciousness with all that is. This represents a choice between truth and tradition.

9th March 2011 ~ (set for noon Hawaii ~ see note below)


We have been uncovering a hidden aspect of self over the past 18 months, removing blocks and obstructions from the emotional, mental and cellular layers.  This ninth wave represents the beginning of a new journey, the release of something that has not been present in your life before.  Expect to discover surprising new things about yourself.  Recognise that we are brand new here, we don’t know our way.  We must be humble and allow ourselves time to learn who we are and how we can be.

The key features of this chart are
  • moving away from helping others and becoming more aligned with imagining our own best life
  • becoming aware of the way we have internalised the ancient feminine/masculine roles
  • and how we extrapolate them out into our relationships
  • maturing into becoming our own authority
  • learning to operate alone and without support or approval from others
  • opening up to authentic and intimate encounters with others in all circumstances
  • letting go of sensitivity to critisism and rejection
  • releasing our need for external status of jobs, trophy partners, etc


Life or Death

The activations are for a Body connection to Soul (Spleen to Ji), in a channel that gives us a profound opportunity to align our behaviour with our instinctive selves (57-10).  This is the “anti-zombie channel” – it has the capacity to inform our cells with spiritual light rather than adrenal based pressure to do, to replace the death energy in our cells with life energy.

The current activations to the Spleen and Solar Plexus Centres release unconscious material stowed deep within our cells, making peace between our civilized and wild selves and releasing dammed up vital energy.  They release our instinctual nature from it’s pallid prison of false morality, our emotional energy from rigid convention, and our mental awareness from slavery into creative play.

Saturn in the Spleen Centre has been busy presenting us with difficult situations that have forced us to release old subconscious material down to the cellular level.  This has created a false perception of a lack of wellbeing, as we reversed out of old patterns of ill health.  Not that we haven’t suffered the symptoms, but the cause has not been illness in the conventional sense, but a vibration of illness giving us the chance to see and clear it from our lives.  That process is likely to continue till September 2011, but the intensity will lessen.

The Sun is in the Solar Plexus Centre, in Gate 22, showing us the beauty of a gentle submission to the time it takes to see the bigger picture.  Rushing ahead keeps us trapped in fear and survival.  Withdrawing and withholding prevents us from our abundance. This from Hilary Barrett’s I Ching:

Remain true to yourself as well as to the beauty revealed.  Retain your personal integrity even in the moment where you are most fully immersed, having plunged deeply and swiftly into the water of experience.  Don’t drown in your imaginings, stay aware of what you are accepting into yourself and why.  You can swim with the river’s current without dissolving into it.

This aligns so clearly with the fire and water elements that we have received in the last Full Moon and New Moon.  Our own flame continues to shine brightly, even in deep water.  We maintain the individual flame of our soul light while joining into universal consciousness.  In fact, universal consciousness cannot evolve if we allow our Self to drown in it.

One of the most significant ideas upon us now is to understand HOW we can flow and maintain our individuality.  Isn’t it an either/or situation?  Doesn’t it go like this:  “We can be individuals, or we can be part of the collective”.  We tend to see it that way because of our conditioning – our fear of rejection.  Our fear that we are not special enough to be included, not good enough to be invited in, not creative enough to contribute something worthwhile and not lovable enough to attract companions.   This pandemic of fear had become our reality, bleeding into our relationships and institutions, breeding issues of hierarchy and control.   But now, we’ve stepped out of the game, and the game is breaking down.

I recently listened to an interview with a man who was wounded in the first of the demonstrations in Libya.  A family man, he heard about the demonstration in the morning and knew he had to be there.  Even though he realised his life would be at risk, he couldn’t say no to this rare chance to claim freedom from tyranny for his children.   In some way, we are all facing that same choice.

We are going through a difficult initiation of realising we are alone.  We have only ourselves to rely on.  And yet, the more deeply we delve into the pain of this realisation, the more fully we can share ourselves with others and they with us.  Facing all those fears of non-inclusion, we realise we are free to be ourselves.  And even more, we are free to love, to dance, to create and to support and encourage each other to do the same.

The Libyans know this.  The want to keep foreign interference out of the current unrest, because they know that it would create complex new relationships that will bind up any new government.  On a personal level it’s similar – we can support each other without the kind of helping that is basically interference.

The Earth is in Gate 47 – Oppression and Exhaustion – in the Ajna Centre. When we give our minds control, everyone loses the plot.   Left in charge but with no access to true awareness, the mind is like a frightened and lost child.  It’s only ally is the shallow ego self, a shell of bombast or a ghost hiding away from the world (probably a combination of both), leading us into oppression and exhaustion.  In line 3, the Earth explains that we have been reaching for things that are toxic to us.  But now we are transitioning to a time when our mind can go back to it’s creative playfulness, giving over to our true authority – emotional and  physical knowing.

One of the most profound shifts we are experiencing is a true relationship between all three areas of awareness – our mental, emotional and instinctive awareness.  This completely removes inner conflict because every aspect of ourselves gets a say in our lives in each moment.

With Chiron conjunct Snow White in the Gate of Abundance (55.2), we are waking up from a deep sleep to find a crisis has developed.  Where is the Prince?  The Earth in Gate 47 says that the real partnership we seek is hidden within us.  There’s no saviour here but you.  And even though you might feel like you’ve lost your way, the truth is that there is something inside you that knows.  And it’s this part of you that is coming back to life.  Again, here is the idea that we have to take the risk to be alone, to face aloneness, to go on alone and without support.  This is a paradox, because with Sappho also in Gate 55.2, we are assured of friendly companions.  They are our abundance just now.  But they will only reveal ourselves once we have taken the risk and leapt into the unknown.

The Moon is in the Yin/Yin hexagram representing the Earth, The Receptive (2).  Dark, fomenting, a container from which the chaos gives birth to form, the Moon in this gate asks you to trust your inner knowing over anything outside yourself.   The subconscious self can know things that the rational mind and the light of day do not understand.  The Moon in this gate also suggests the need to wait for the light of clear day to show us the way rather than tripping over our compulsive drive for security and safety that comes from living in the lunar half light.

Subtle signs show the way and when you apply sensitivity you can see the patterns of what is coming.  Your steps are so important, tiny changes now determine the pathways of the future.

Mercury is conjunct Uranus in the Gate of Innocence (25).  Orpheus, Apollo and Hera is in the adjoining Gate of Shock (51).   There is a teasing out of the self in relationship, as we disentangle ourselves from family dynamics (Apollo) and the power struggles of roles and ownership (Hera).  Orpheus wants to look to the other as a way of saving himself, but we’ve been down that road for so long we’ve lost ourselves.   If ever the saying was true it’s now – the one about letting go of what you love and if it comes back to you it is yours.   Each one of us is striving, even driven, to be as truly and passionately ourselves as we can possibly be and in some ways there feels like a need to ditch the other as too much ballast.  And at the same time to cling as tightly as we can out of fear of aloneness.

But that’s the old view of what’s going on.  In the new reality we are fellow travellers and the isolation we may experience reveals itself as an illusion.  The more we love ourselves, the more love there is.  The defined Ji Centre makes loving each other a natural way of life.

We are awakening and coming back to ourselves, drawing closer to a greater spirit of togetherness.  To do so we need to continue to release all the cellular aspects that still hold onto the old notion of romantic love and family, financial status, career ladders, academic authority, parental authority and any other type of externalised authority or role.  (Venus in 19.2 and Pluto in 58.4, and Thereus conjunct Achilles in 16).  This could create great anxiety and/or depression.  Look for the old belief, the old story and allow your breath to carry it out of your system.  If you feel the need to control or judge, remind yourself that everything is just how it needs to be, even if it looks like it could endanger you in some way.  The danger is likely to be old shame, old guilt, old fear.  No longer present.

When Mercury and Uranus meet we can expect flashes of intuitive knowing, as the personal mind opens up to universal inspiration.  This process will release us from the need to identify with or claim importance from a label or role.

Mars is in the Crown Chakra, is at the completion of the Hexagram cycle in Gate 63 and poised to begin anew.  As our warrior self makes attempts to conquer this new world we can often feel foolish, humble, confused.  This is a sign that we’ve tried to push forward too quickly and slipped back into old ways.  The major task of Mars is to ensure that all aspects of our self are protected and provided for.  He doesn’t need to be concerned with what others are doing.

Jupiter in the Heart Centre, in the Gate of Biting Through meets the asteroid Diana in Gate 45.  Do you feel hunted, as if your wild self is trapped in trying to make ends meet? Make enough money to survive?  Keep up with the Jones?  Jupiter and Diana are letting us know to look within for our resources.  Jupiter will show us where we have tended to take our gifts too lightly, where we have resisted opportunity, and where we have been reckless with treasure we should have valued more.  We need to stop trying to get others to take responsibility for our abundance and begin to develop our own creative powers.  Between 9th and 12th March we get a free pass, so keep your eyes open, and be ready to leap at any opportunity presented, even though it may not seem perfect.

It’s likely we may also experience an increase in interference in our lives.  But in this new Jupiter cycle we can see the real cause of the interference, rather than a narrowly focused annoyance at the symptoms.  We are looking from a broader perspective and so our response creates great change.

Saturn has been a profound activator since it joined Haumea in the Gate of Intuitive Clarity (57) in early December 2010.  They meet the North Node in Gate 10, connecting the Spleen Centre to the Ji Centre – body connecting to soul.  A humble and gentle approach to life allows us to penetrate deeply, and to receive as much as possible from each experience.  There is a combination here of moving patiently forward, only taking action in the direction of your dreams when the time is right.  The day to day grind that makes up the working world for most people is completely unnecessary.

On the other hand, if we are too humble we get thrown off course.  Busy-ness with no real purpose is the result.   When it is time to act, we should act.  Note that both Haumea and Saturn both carry the potential for volcanic response, to blow off the old subconscious material and create ‘new land’ for ourselves.

One of the negative aspects of Saturn is loneliness, and the connection with Haumea has brought up the loss of family for many.  I am using the word family in a broad sense.  Saturn and Haumea have made it very clear to us that we need community to prosper.

Pluto is in the Gate of Joy, simply making sure that we can see where we are giving away our authority over our own lives and allowing ourselves to be pressured away from our natural joyful experience of life.  How can you fully enjoy the moment?  What more can you bring to your experience and expression of now?


This is a summary of the major planets and other significant influences for the Human Design Transit chart for 9th March 2011.   Over the next few days and weeks we are set to experience a wave of spiritual initiations as we launch into the Ninth Wave of Universal Consciousness.  I will post a video showing the first set of those waves tomorrow.

** I’ve used noon in Hawaii for the chart, based on advice from Calleman (via Alecia R.)

I wanted to add that whatever our first or second or third impressions are during this time, what is more important methinks is to return to the simpler truth, which no one here needs reminding of, but that is that we are One planet, One world, and now more than ever is that becoming evident (we hope) to those who have not yet realized. What we do over 'there' affects us over 'here' and vice versa, and we are all in this together.

I also came across these words from Thich Nhat Hahn and wanted to share:


Thich Nhat Hanh: Message to Friends in Japan
Dear friends in Japan,   As we contemplate the great number of people who have died in this tragedy, we may feel very strongly that we ourselves, in some part or manner, also have died.   The pain of one part of humankind is the pain of the whole of human...kind. And the human species and the planet Earth are one body. What happens to one part of the body happens to the whole body.   An event such as this reminds us of the impermanent nature of our lives. It helps us remember that what's most important is to love each other, to be there for each other, and to treasure each moment we have that we are alive. This is the best that we can do for those who have died: we can live in such a way that they continue, beautifully, in us.   Here in France and at our practice centers all over the world, our brothers and sisters will continue to chant for you, sending you the energy of peace, healing and protection. Our prayers are with you.   Thich Nhat Hanh

I have to add Panagiotis, that there was a big collective movement that began just around 2000 where so very many people I know and including myself began a really really difficult period of huge crisis and intensive change, healing, transformation. Somewhere in the forums there was a post about it. I can try to find it. But no, we're not alone. We are not alone in this. I mean, like this is saying, and I only repeat it b/c it is very accurate for me personally, there has been a tremendous focus on strengthening as individuals right now. Individually. so it can really feel as if we've been alone. And indeed, we have been, in the sense that no one was going to bail us out or sometimes even help us through our crisis, we had to forge and kick and keep on and find the strength within, and even if we felt we couldn't find it, we did it, I mean hey, we're still here. and so it really has been and is still in great way about doing this ourselves, and really claiming our inner power and selves and strength, development and inner authority. Not easy stuff. But necessary to develop to the level that we can and need to be.


In any case, there is big stuff going on. Now this morning Japan, the Tsunami. Unbelievalbe. I thought of VV here right away. And again, the tendencies (prophecies) about our time, coming to pass. My hubby said this morning "you can't mess with Mother Nature." and heartbreak for so many many people. And that this author (of this article here) called this period of great transformation, which is influened astrologically, and began just 2 days ago, which astro influences report lasting just over 200 days here, is called The Ninth Wave. And the photo of the big wave here. Reminds me of prior to 911 a small but poignant spiritual magazine in santa fe had on the front page a tarot report, the Tower card, and a huge pic of it on the cover, accompanied by an article saying "the tower is coming down. wallstreet, greed, etc etc" and then came 911 just 2 weeks later. Anyway, I'm all over the place. But...

I also feel a sense of calm. Not for the people who are suffering, etc., they all all have my prayers and of course, it still all moves me and brings tears, truly. But at the same time, I feel a sense of calmness and peace. that the old mistakes and paradigm and era are coming to pass. And that a new and better order will come of it all. That's just what I feel. I feel like even 2 years ago, I was still feeling the darker destruction of it all, through 2009, then it started to shift. Something shifted. Still felt heavy, but not as heavy. And increasingly shifted through this year, when the real tipping point was felt. For me. whereas it really feels like light collectivity has increased and did hit the tipping point, relatively recently, and that means and feels so so so good. And so much better. That we can and indeed now are holding a greater collective consciousness space and positivity around  well, both our own personal processes and also with what is even happening today. That what we are seeing with the quakes and waves and earth changes, is part of a process of Gaia rebalancing and releasing anger, yes, and stress, so much stress put upon her by man, and being put upon, and dishonored, and her natural miraculous balance obliterated, etc, and now like a pregant new mother, really going through the process of the re-birth; and the healing and re-ordering for Planet Earth herself. as well as for us humans. and planet earth will always be ok. she'll still be here even if humans are not. and she will cleanse and re-order herself. now for the animals, will they come back? don't know, but Earth will be ok. But the real question --

will humans as a whole finally get it? we have yet to see. And it still seems mind-boggling that after all of this, and with what we are seeing today, that so many still do not. I mean, MINDboggling.  But there is a collective majoirty, however slight, that does, and that is  tremendously exciting. to be a part of. and I think will help it all to continue to change for the better. But none of us  really knows. So we hope and feel what we feel and individually we stay and grow stronger, like the article here says we are doing. The focus really is on us as individuals. And if we do that, then, then we will have a chance collectively. And I think that's why it's been so hard, and so challenging, for so many of us. Developing our own inner strength and fortitude has been that important for/on the planet. And for ourselves for that matter.


Anyway again, like VV says, none of us really knows how or what things will actually transpire. But we are watching it unfold today. continuing to unfold. and we can feel the truth in both the reaction to man's mistakes and greed and ego structure, and also in the collective consciousness and light we are now experiencing as well for change and the promise of the new technology and the new "we are one planet" collective beauty so many of us so strongly feel today. it's fantastic. and overall, I do see the challenges/crisis but also followed by an amazingly beautiful vision of new world possibility. That's what I see. And even through this great earth erruption today, and all the saddness I feel that comes with it, I also feel a greater light space (for lack of another way to say it) around it all. That all in all, things will get better again. and even better than before. And things are in order, and because of all the awareness of it all, it is still held in a new light. and will be ok. Not for the people who are losing family, etc. And need to and can still hold and help one another. Dear god, I hope we at least do that. So it's hard to say some of it when so many people are suffering. But I feel both. I really do.


And yes, it is reflected and felt in our personal paths too. Like P is alluding, it all comes down to waking up. To just plain waking up humanity. Really. And IS everyone going to feel it? I think probably not. But everyone will be affected by it. and still, most I think already are. the majority anyways. Sheesh, how can anyone remain asleep during all this, it seems beyond comprehension. But old egoic structures are strong and deep. and stubborn. so some will STILL not see it.

But it will be ok. B/c their ways of doing things will not be able to sustain itself - from dictatorships, to other corruptions of power (and I think that corporate greed will be one of the last things, if ever, to change, I mean there is real problematic ego there), but even with that, supply (what's left of earth's resources and where) as well as demand (for green technology and power sources) may well knock them out of power anyways. As the greater majority will be demanding and buying the greener ways. Demand for conscious governing, technology, etc etc will be too great. They will fall away. Though they'll pop up with their greed in some of the new areas too I'm sure. well, it's hard to say. We can feel the tendencies, again, but none of us really knows. it could still go either way. But I'm voting for the latter.


But in any case, I am finding this article more than interesting today in light of the news from the pacific, and overall, I feel that we are held in something greater, a space that is good, really good, and peaceful amid the crisis. So that's my ramble for today. with many thoughts and prayers to the people (and animals) and friends there. will be going out all day and onwards.


and ps. I thought of VV here right away this a.m. when I heard the reports re Japan. And then I thought of the photo of the Wave here. Hmm. We are getting the message.


Prayers to our friends in the Pacific.

Comment by Panagiotis on March 11, 2011 at 4:25am
I've been wondering how many have been experiencing all these things. I used to think i was alone but i do feel reassured now that i know it's not only me. It's one thing to experience profound changes and quite another to balance it all carefully with with stubborn old ways daily living routines, so we dont stumble and fall. Any change brings about new challenges. My question is, Will everyone experience ( or eventually experience ) the new level of consciousness?
Comment by Alexa on March 10, 2011 at 9:07pm
hi VV. thanks for sharing and I loved the way you wrapped it up as well. often a practice. and yeah, there have been so many tendencies and atrocities on our planet. They have driven me nuts as well. Maybe this will be a real opportunity to turn some of it around. we can try and do it, it's time.  I feel like maybe we have already cancelled up some of the old predicted directions/stuff based on current combined awareness. In any case, all those things you mentioned, I appreciate them too. thanks for sharing. xx is an online global community creating personal freedom and conscious wellbeing for ourselves and our world



 May we be at peace
May our hearts stay open
May we remember the light of our own true nature
May we and all beings be completely healed
