SUNRISE - A NEW DAY DAWNING
Mark Adamus, Artist
October 2011 is a Number Five month in a Number Four Universal Year. We also have the Number Ten (the number symbol for October) in play. Ten represents in Tarot the Wheel of Fortune and often indicates a change for the better. In summary – and I hope this is encouraging news for all of you – we can interpret the Number Five energies of October as initiating a change in the structure of our lives. Some of you whom I know personally will utter a sigh of relief and state: “Thank Goodness!” If you are seeking positive change, October --- and the coming year – offer the opportunity to transition to brighter horizons.
A reminder that I offer every time we encounter October in our year is that October is considered “preview month”, so pay attention to events that occur for you and also universally, as they will hold indicators of how the energies of 2012 will play out.
Five brings change and reform from the status quo, sometimes in the guise of chaos and drama. If you are able to accept events that occur without judging them negatively, you are in a stronger position to be in the flow of energies that carry you through a portal to new careers, relationships, and lifestyles that connect you more deeply to rewards and fulfillment that are aligned with your authentic self.
Some helpful guidelines to keep in mind for this month:
-----Stay alert – to events in your life and your world.
-----Be flexible as circumstances dictate and evolve.
-----Try new ways of doing things.
-----Reach out and network with people who offer diversity in their beliefs and culture.
-----Listen to the stirrings of your heart. Envision the changes you are called to make.
More about the energies of 2012 will be forthcoming as we approach the new year. We may, however, see important changes and shifts globally as we transit the last ten days of October. Carl Calleman, a highly regarded expert on the Mayan calendar, has stated that October 28, 2011 marks the end of the Mayan calendar and thus the end of a 26,000 year cycle.
The term “it’s always darkest before the dawn” comes to mind, so if any of you are struggling, remember this month offers the light of a new day, and a new era begins for us all. Take out your paints or your crayons and begin designing the canvas of your life as you would like it to be. The wind is at your back – and the force is with you!
