Energy flow through the calendar year:
The year starts a bit contracted (a continuation of the energy from the end of December) and then widens through mid-April with a strong activating flow that will support expansion, creative endeavors, and entrepreneurship.
May through June has more of a yin/yang energy. Lots of light, lots of shadow, and all with strong emotional underpinnings. July and August has more of the same but may also have more volatility as the tables begins to flip and these tables may be figurative or literal.
And then in September and October, everything S.L.O.W.S. down with a significant contracture. This one may feel like being in severe traffic construction gridlock and it may be helpful to get off the beaten path and take the scenic route. Or, put another way, we may be pushed to get out of our ruts!
In the final months the year, the energy begins to untangle and lighten like a slow long exhale. This period also contains threads of mental energy linked to contemplation and reflection upon our stories and beliefs.
There are several potential bubbles throughout 2023 (February, April, June, July, August, October). These include infrastructure systems, politics, financial markets, and changes in nature. Whether they heat up enough to ‘pop’, depends on how our individual and collective hearts approach our values.
Themes to watch for in 2023:
Transformation happening fast. It is not just that things are speeding up, things are speeding up exponentially. Change always feels a bit unsteady even when it is in areas we desire and/or coupled with creative endeavors and entrepreneurship. When expansions happens quickly, we feel like we’re in constant movement. Even for those who are grounded and centered, this is going to have an unsettled feeling until we adjust to the new energy levels and re-find our balance.
Create space for reflection, visioning, and planning. Remember, we don’t have to ride every wave.
Deconstruction & reconstruction. For those who wish to transform, there will be significant opportunities to jettison old templates both personally and within the collective. For those who wish the old ways to remain, things may get more frenetic as the competition and friction between old and new systems rises more to the surface.
There’s a growing forward-moving energy to ‘reconstruct’ but it cannot fully emerge or embed until there is enough deconstruction to create space for new roots and growth. This will bring emotions to the surface. For some it will be more soft and tender, for many it may feel more volatile, even revolutionary.
Intuition continues to expand. The grid of human interconnection strengthens with new openings of intuition and heart-based energy. Particularly this latter is spilling out into the galactic leylines and influencing our planet’s connections and emergence into the cosmic chessboard in a new way. More galactic portals and gates begin to emerge.
Internal landscape shifts and personal power. Our gifts that we’ve tended to hide in the shadows want to come forward as part of our personal power. Value systems, especially those related to our spiritual growth, will undergo deep review and scrutiny at the individual, community, and global level.
There’s strong reformation energy emerging but it is hitting a hierarchical gridlock. This reformation energy, which may easily turn into revolution energy, will likely persist into at least 2024. Will we choose to do things to that harmonize or de-harmonize ourself and others? As trite as it sometimes seems, it is essential to pay attention to the energy, words, and stories we put out into the world.
Into next year. 2023-2024 are significant shifting years for earth and humanity. These are a bridge into the second half of this decade which is a foundational gateway for the rest of the century.
