A New Day Is Dawning


Though I have never been sure what ‘crystal blue persuasion’ means I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it in 1969. It still holds up as one of my all-time favorites. In 1969 I was fourteen years old, growing up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, dreaming of living in California, away from the long, bitter-cold winters and the people who really didn’t understand me. By the fall of 1974 I was living in Northern California. It turned out most of the people I’ve met here don’t understand me either, but the sun does shine most of the time… And, over time, I connected with an ever-evolving, core group of people who are kindred spirits; sweet friends with whom I can always converse in the language of consciousness and celebrate life’s magic and mysteries.

Today, January 1st, we arrive at the gateway to this brand new year, the year that holds tremendous promise for birthing a new day for anyone ready to embrace the tranformative waves of change. Astrologically speaking, we have been in a bit of an energetic portal with Mercury turning retrograde in early December in Capricorn, traveling back through the late degrees of Sagittarius and now having resumed forward movement will offer us one more chance to tie up the loose ends we may have missed, finally tell the truth about something we couldn’t admit to until now or correct something that has never felt right. On December 20th/21st we had the Gemini Lunar Eclipse at the very last (known as the critical) degree of Gemini, further amplifying the need and desire to say what is on our minds and in our hearts. January 4th is the first new moon of the year–this one is the Capricorn Solar Eclipse. Capricorn is the sign of manifestation, discipline and giving structure and order to our lives. The energy mounts as we approach an eclipse and only after the fact that we begin to realize what it has all been about. We are starting this year in an energetic atmosphere that is swirling, surging and capable of shaking out anything that is no longer relevant to our lives. Speaking our truth and letting go allows life to flow in ways we could never have seen when we were shut down and holding on.

May 2011 be filled with words that are music to your ears, sights that make your heart sing, people that speak your language and time for enjoying every lovely moment!

Love,
Jodi

  1. Feeling the new day definitely! And seems the more we connect with ourselves, the fears and blocks to expressing our truths just fall away. 🙂 *shakin’ away*.
    Thanks Jodi.
