Forecast for Imbolc to Spring Equinox 2011: the SERPENT and the BELL

Happy New Year of Rabbit! The Chinese year of the Rabbit starts today, dear readers, and it's right on the heels of yesterday's Imbolc - also known as Candlemas and (of course) Ground Hog Day. So it's doubly auspicious to look now at the prevailing energy patterns I'm forecasting for this cross-quarter* period of Imbolc to Spring Equinox. And the guidance I get from my Star+Gate cards speaks of:

Where we are now, fellow-travelers, is the Bell: We express ourselves through attraction and attunement, as well by being alert. What are we heralding as this icy winter (in the northern hemisphere, at least ;) loosens its grip on the way to spring?

Coming up for us is the Egg, the expression of that potential which is developing with us. We sense its presence but it still lies enclosed, so even as we prepare for it, we keep in mind that it is fragile. Protect it until it is fully formed. The energy ahead of us is the Monk, the disciplined and meditative part of ourselves, who will guide us Inward to clarity and self-awareness. 

The Serpent helps us to resolve this pattern by reminding us to face our fears while confronting what we know deep within. Helping us navigate this sometimes-daunting path is the Earth: stay close to her, and keep yourself grounded!

Major themes for this forecast period involve satisfying our inner needs, feeling secure, and emotions in general. We will also focus on partnerships, agreements, and all the ways we combine energies. This is the time to get in touch with our personal boundaries, to exercise independent judgment, and to stay in harmony so we do not allow fear to put us out of balance. This forecast remains in effect until the Spring Equinox on March 20, when I'll be back with another cross-quarter forecast.

* What's a cross-quarter? It's about one-eighth of the year, using the archetypical calendar found in many traditional communities around the world. Quarter days are the celestial dividing points of the year: Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumn Equinox, Winter Solstice. Cross-quarter days are the midpoints between them: Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas, and All Hallows. These terms come from the Celtic/NeoPagan usage.
