The quarter points of the solar year, two solstices and two equinoxes, are the most powerful alchemical moments we have to align with Primordial (Source) energy and feed the Dragon.
These three-day-long Primordial portals (day before, day of, and day after), are, in fact, days outside of normal time. This meaning must not be under-estimated in its importance. The Universe uses these still-point moments to vacuum out as much sick and destructive (“evil”) energy it can and resets the Field, bringing life into greater harmony, and Us closer to the Source. Its action is like an immune system’s when it swallows germs and toxins (sick energy) and transforms them into positive energy.
How This Idea Is Often Mistaken
There is a great compulsion in normal astrology to look at planetary transits as having the power to change our world, but this is an externally-based, false belief for two reasons. First, all transits take place within duality, and so are subject to and part of the play of yin and yang, the passive and active forces of creation. As such, they do not change anything of themselves as much as they reflect changes which are possible due to the work we and Spirit have done internally with the third force – Neutral, Primordial Energy. (It is hard to understand from a 3d point of view, but the outside world is the result of the inside one, not the other way around. This is basic metaphysical science through the ages – “First in the mind, then in the body”.)
In other words, transits are not causal; their activity is the result and they are markers in time. The famously important Jupiter/Saturn conjunction on December 21st will be a meeting point of energies with potentials already having been created internally and destined to come into play at that time. The changes themselves are created from within, in the empty space, and are then out-pictured in time and space as experience. It is of greatest importance to understand this concept, because what we have been taught is that we are pawns of forces outside ourselves, when, in fact, we are generating those forces ourselves from inside and then react to them as if we are victims. The call of the New Age is to turn this concept of victim inside out and remember that we are the creators of what is happening here.
And that is the second reason: As creators in the field of life, we have the power to bring things into reality. But this is not done by moving the pieces around in the field of play. It is done through imagination, in the mind, then is made manifest in the outer. (Aligning with the Source within puts us in our Natural Mind and allows us to then know what to do in the outer, otherwise, we are moving from ego mind.) This is how the Universe creates. It creates from the inside out:
Yes, the universe is expanding. But the common sense idea that it is expanding into empty space is wrong; the universe is all there is, there is no space beyond it to expand into. If there were extra space, it would be, by definition, part of the universe. Instead, the universe expands by actually creating, out of nothing, new space between groups of galaxies. The universe is, therefore, getting bigger and the galaxies further apart.
– Edwin Hubble, astronomer
So, the Universe first makes space, then It puts stuff into it. This concept is awesome, because in essence, the Universe is making something out of nothing.
The cauldron space of imagination, with regard to the living solar year cycle, is the four quarters of solstices and equinoxes. They are the Universe’s mind-spaces thru which It imagines a world in harmony. It intrudes on our daily reality within duality at these times and gives us access to It directly, as the space of an equinox or solstice, empty and neutral, unconditioned and all-accepting like a Mother’s love that makes everything alright again, is the same space which we enter daily when we meditate. The Primordial Zone within us of the body’s central channel with its unconditioned energy, is the pure alchemical energy space, the only place in which the momentum of anything already created in reality that we do not want anymore can be neutralized in order to create anew, something else. It is the composting ground of the Infinite. All we have to do is sit down and stop.

Creating Reality Our Way
This is where most of us still get confused regarding “creating our reality.” The ego is always in reaction to something. It tends to want to control what’s going on and force it to change. This is futile and creates more problems than we had already. This is not the natural way to create. The Universe allows what is already there to be there, and imagines what it wants next. It takes its mental energy out of the old creation and puts it into the new one. In Ayn Rand’s stupendous novel The Fountainhead, hero and indomitable creator Howard Roark passes villain manipulator for the dark forces Ellsworth Toohey on the street. Toohey cannot stop himself from asking Roark what he thinks of him. Roark says simply, “But I don’t think of you.”
It is the space of the imagining, an inner womb, which has the power to create and literally to replace whatever has been there. The Universe offers us four times during the year to participate magnificently in this re-creative process, and the 21st, 22cd, and 23rd of September is our immediate portal of creativity. (Go here for your specific time zone: https://www.archaeoastronomy.com/2020.html )
For these three days we can be in the empty space of unconditional love with Universal Presence, co-creating our next reality in alignment with the Source. The Magic Key to this endeavor is Surrender of everything that is.
The Wuwei Of Changing The World
So if you want to see continued big change in the outer world, spend ample time sitting in stillness now, allowing whatever has been in your life, good and bad, and our group life as humanity, to simply be there, letting go of it, not fighting off new virus attacks or the next cabal attempt to blow something up or whatever worldly event someone has told you to prepare for and be afraid of, and simply love it to death by taking your focus off it and putting your creative attention on what you want instead. (“Energy follows attention,” so don’t dwell on what you don’t want.) Let the Universe do the work for you – Its guns are much bigger. Our responsibility is not to take responsibility but to give it – to the Universe. Daoism calls this state of allowing change to come through us wuwei, the state of non-resistance.
As we enter this window starting (in the USA) on Monday, the 21st, do your movement and meditation practices with intent to release into the Hands of the Universe all that’s going on on Earth right now. Let it siphon everything away in a huge, whirlpooling, vacuuming breath into Itself and let it all go. (Or imagine it composting directly in the planet, breaking down the old components into neutral elements that can be reshaped into something more beautiful.) Then imagine the world at peace, everyone taking a deep, deep breath, blowing out the tensions of a thousand years, and smiling (mask-free), saying, “Wow, thank God that’s over! What do we do now?”
What would it be like for humanity to wake up, smell the roses of life, and start to live in unity, peace, prosperity, freedom, and love? The fulfillment of the flower child dream of the 1960s…
When you ask yourself this question and you have any doubt about it being possible, or that it isn’t possible now, or that the bad people have to pay first for their crimes, take advantage of the opportunity to realize that that thought, if left unchecked, will contribute to a compromised version of your vision, and place the thought (which is a negative imagining) into the window of Primordial energy and let it go. Force yourself. Just do it. Refocus on peace, trust and happiness, and make a willful choice for it. The Universe will do the rest if we just maintain our willingness for our highest good. I like these two words for that:
There’s lots of space and light in them.
Between now and the end of the year we are going to be releasing millennia more of old paradigm thinking, energy patterns, confusion and pain that have been built into our human field. By the time we pass through the winter solstice this year, using the strategy outlined above, that Jupiter/Saturn conjunction scheduled for December 21st will be able to reflect a magnificent movement forward, as it is right upon the seed point for the entire new year cycle of 2021. Winter solstice is the conception point for the entire solar year. What can unfold in 2021 is directly related to how well we let the past go now, and again at winter solstice.
Don’t hold back when imagining. See it, feel it, the way you want it to be. Drop resistance, fear, the need to punish. Forgive, forget, move on.
Now is the time to gather our courage, mix it into our vision, and say YES to a new world.
