The other day I received the nicest gift from a friend--The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid. If you have been following my blog then you know this was the perfect gift for me. This deck is based on the mythology of one of my favorite places, the Isle of Avalon or Glastonbury in the UK. As I became acquainted with the deck, I immediately felt the powerful insightfulness of the oracles-Goddesses/priestesses. I thought about the triple event happening today, December 21, 2010: the winter solstice, the full moon/total eclipse and 3:3:3 numerical blueprint of the day.
Intuitively, I received the following message after doing a five card spread. Humanity needs to pay special attention to the subtle energies of the day because they are precursors of what to expect but on a much grander scale on December 21, 2012. Change is coming and as co-creators of this world we have a stake in how this transformation will take place. There are many dire predictions about this day, but it will not be the end of the world. We will experience even more of the Great Shift that has already started and will cross over all cultures and social-economic systems of the universe.
The Spirit of Maat Magazine did a survey, asking its readers to share with them how they are responding to the energies of the Great Shift. The response was phenomenal. Read them at http://spiritofmaat.com/dec10/index.htm
On December 21, 2010 we have a full moon symbolizing the Goddess energy of illusion and intuitive and the winter solstice, a time of rebirth. Winter solstice or mid-winter day for the northern hemisphere occurs every year on December 21, when the sun is at its lowest and weakest point. It is the shortest day of the year. Ancient civilizations, which were connected with the cycles of nature, revered and celebrated the day because it meant the coming of the light. December 21 represented a pivot point from which the sun grew stronger and brighter promising warmth for the land. The concept of the birth of the sun is a pagan holiday that many religions have adapted to their faiths.

The day also offers us a chance to awaken from programs of thoughts and feelings that keep us locked into illusions to be reborn into a world of light. To accept this energy and prepare ourselves for the coming of the light we have to go within. I suggest you set aside a time for meditation at 12 noon or 12 midnight for 12 to 21 minutes. You don’t have to do anything elaborate, just be in a space of quietness, receptivity, and belief. That’s all it takes. You’ll be connecting with many people around the globe awakening to higher consciousness. Then you might want to write your own letter on how you are responding to the Great Shift. Save it and look at it again on 12.21.2012.
