A reading from Caitlin & John Matthews’ Arthurian Tarot (cut deck once into centre of pile, right and left hands)
Re-reading some old writings in 2005 about 2012 and the ending of the Mayan calendar, I found a forgotten practical insight: to realign each day my “human terrestrial axis” imaginatively to the galactic core.
The actual picture we were given was: in December 2012 the configuration of planets interacting with stellar influences might pull our planet into a more upright position relatively. Indeed the astrology during that time was quite loaded, an “eggs in one basket” situation with the Moon moving through those energy fields. This could indicate a symbolic or gradual polar-axis alignment with galactic centre – perceived not geo-physically but as an evolving consciousness.
To uplift and straighten my spine with polar axis is a quiet conscious work. The same force of Nature in ages past raised early homo sapiens to stand and walk upright. I have to keep reminding myself, as I keep forgetting … the “Schumann resonance” – Gaia’s slow pulse or wavelength; to lean with the mast of the Grail ship.
The idea of Earth’s polar axis tilting physically was – as I thought at the time – a naive and literal interpretation of the transcendent view which is: Gaia’s subtle body moves into an altered resonance with her cosmic environment. In physical terms, this takes place in waves over a geological period of generations.

“The slow change of the angle of the axis of the earth with respect to the centre of the galaxy will bring no ill effects. As far as Mother Nature goes, it is business as usual. The sun continues to shine, the earth continues to spin, and the four seasons continue to transform from one into another. … Once a year the earth orbits into the special position that creates the galactic alignment, and once every 26,000 years this happens at virtually the same moment as the winter solstice.”

The above is extracted from http://www.mysticmamma.com/solstice-12-21-12-end-restart-of-mayan-calendar-galactic-alignment/ – which contains an article by Thomas Razzeto in 2008. Because of the time lapse since then, I slightly abridged it.
He continues by describing as a “sacred tree” the sunrise procession of planets on 2012 solstice through the ecliptic path which crosses the Milky Way’s dark centre. At solstice noon the sun transited the core point – as I understand it, a subtle but powerful event through all the planes. “The Mayan sacred tree is an astronomical reference to the cross made by galactic equator and the ecliptic path of the Sun as seen from Earth, near the centre of the galaxy. The sacred tree is part of the fixed background of the stars. Its shape and location with respect to the other stars never changes.
“We should consider the location of the centre of the galaxy as the Mayan womb of creation. On this day at this time, it is at the bottom acting as the source, the root system of the sacred tree. So everything comes from source into our world of duality. What a beautiful metaphor! This makes much more sense than the false yet often repeated statement that the sun would be on top of the centre of the galaxy on this special day.
“When we look at the configuration at midday – the moment of the Sun’s greatest strength – we have the sacred tree being exhibited in an extremely interesting way. When we consider the Sun’s presence in the middle of the dark rift while it is also in the middle of those four planets (Venus, Mercury, Pluto, Mars), I think we have found something that is quite remarkable. … We have the opportunity to align our thoughts and vibrations with others who wish the same for our planet.” (Copyright Thomas Razzeto 2008).
This is a process to feel or empathise intuitively, rather than try to analyse. Light is born through darkness. Time dissolves into cyclic presence. As the 2012 concentric continues to realign our axial relationship, I think we should listen more to this tender point in ourselves each winter and each summer, and keep still. It may be that more terrestrial tremors develop at solstices where there is increased sensitivity to magnetic realignment. We may watch and see and be shown. In the sacramental consciousness, no humanity or atom of nature is separate.
Initially the impact is subjective: an addictive acceleration – an interactive and reactive technology overload. Terrestrial beings who will not or cannot harmonise with the holistic shift, are flung onto the illumined stage periphery; they may live violently, acting out the drama we desire to watch and to entertain ourselves with; or they may suffer the pressure and upheaval. Precisely the same rattling disturbs my lower mind.
The lower frequency (individual and collective) in disarray and discord shows in high-relief, man’s inhumanity to man and to the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms.
I am organically interwoven with this as a Sun-Moon Capricorn/Cancer with five planets in earth signs. Through frequent fatigue and my lower mind’s dismal chatter, I am yet aware during the years since 2012 of a progressive widening of the gap between my view of things and the mainstream worldview. The distorted media version is here today and gone tomorrow; keeping my ear to the ground, I pick up only what is needful, to be informed.

It was said in the earlier days, ”In the rollercoaster through the Photon Belt, those who evolve will tend to detach and stand aside from those who regress or exploit others at any level.” We observe the polarisation in the politics, in land management and in business. The new and slowly growing holistic principle is profoundly philanthropic; the grass-roots flourish through my own extended family. Only connect …
At the same time I ask myself where and how do I engage with the regressive element and the agony of its victims and the homeless, as I am challenged with it daily? It is like two sides of a widening crevasse or bergschrund dividing the mountain from the glacier; that great split is bridged for we are One. The delineation and its depth are clear.
Master R said in 1947 … “Ours is no work of other worlds and planes. Here on this weeping, suffering earth, is where the Shrine of Love must be built, and built with action, not alone with words … The can opener of the intellect is too dull to probe the secrets of the Heart of Life. Knowledge goes deeper than statement. Love, and you shall know … Thy pain is my pain, thy sorrows pierce my heart. I stand not aloof.”

The real meaning of “Ascension” and the grounded Book of Revelation is – a daily grind!
Ascension is not “ascent” so much as discovering the path along the mountain. Ascension draws the Light deep into the ground. I take responsibility for the illumining and clearing of my shadow and of ancient habits. My tiny spine is Gaia’s – the invisibly vast polar axis with Her magnetic fields and shields and Aurora. This perception throws up and out the baggage on the beach. Many of us must embrace and clarify big relationship Karmas and their wounds as a whole at this point in time. I evolve not through denial but through forgiving. It is no use to pass the buck! It is no use to paste it onto a mythical “Them” out there, or “They” in all our discontented issues and habits of speech. The Change in humankind begins nowhere else but here: in myself and in yourself. There is no time like the present connectivity. There is no time but the present.
My father once visited a Buddhist Rishi who replied, “The past is gone. The future hasn’t happened yet. The present is Now. Don’t waste it!”
Ascension is your and my compass: compassion.

A hidden quantum of lighthouse-keepers in the Change reaches critical mass. There is no single event; there is a decade, a generation, a lifetime’s curve of changes in attitude to our environment. The atrocities I see and am distressed by only emphasise the bigger picture of the Change at all levels, throughout the human gene pool.

Uranus entered Taurus last week; he will traverse this threshold back and forth for a year or two, before proceeding into the springtide deep within Earth’s flowering. Though there will continue to be battles with land grabbers, we are likely to witness an “unexpected” collective turning point as the Gaia awareness gains environmental strength; a hands-on questioning of our use of fuel and food and its waste. The brakes were on for decades – the juggernaut against the brake, an immense friction of scorched tyres – but from about here the whole thing begins to slow down. Slow down! Personal and collective history demonstrate that we human beings individual and collective do not change and grow until it is unendurable for us not to.
What is the Gaia consciousness? For me, my spine, my core, is Earth’s: and Earth’s alignment with the Solar system’s flower of orbits and magnetic fields, and with the galaxy and other stellar systems.
We humans are in no atom separate from nature, the soil, bird, beast, insect and rock forms. We humans are in no atom separate from Earth’s internal dark magma – our unconscious – which bursts like a phoenix into fire and light the instant it encounters air … the song of the breath. We humans are in no atom separate from our roads and our heavy buildings and our parasitic tourism and our blinkers.
Biro-amour drawing for David by Tony Wigg. The Greek lettering is ‘Phallos’ whose root ‘Shines’: the verb moves but does not name or fix the light. In the magma sphere within earth’s mantle, there is no air for light to exist. The analogy is with the subconscious ignition of creative imagery. Darkness holds the Shining within itself.
We humans along with all organisms are her breath, her pulse. Wherever possible, if your life is inextricably busy, accelerated or pressured, pause for just a moment: slow down to reflect a detail or be silent. Creatures in the woodland stop their foraging, to look around … until the active fountain rises again within them. Be refreshed.
These brief openings will grow in due course, and join up like the blue sky through clouds. Join hands with all of us who try to do this as and when we can. In the inevitable flowering of Logres, find and cherish the Grail vessel in a hillside brook, and dip to drink. Although poisonous and persuasive, the economic and military juggernaut fights for existence as it dies. So called world leaders and magnates are puppets. They do me a favour: they show me my hard drive. Where am I greedy? Where do I want more and more? It is actually a dream. It is hard to wake up; but glimpses come like shafts of sunlight through nature’s canopy.
KEEP SEEING AND KEEP GOING AND KEEP PRACTICING.
