Cosmic Weather Report:
SPECIAL THREE-PART NEW YEAR REPORT
2012: Flight of the Dragon
January 2012, Putney Vermont
January 23 begins the Year of the Dragon, which supersedes all other animal years in scope
and vision, because dragons fly highest, and are the only magical animal of the twelve.
John Lennon, born in a Dragon year, sought a vision that could change history. It wasn't
enough for him to simply produce the best rock band ever - the Dragon in him led him to wield that fame into a platform to end War and create a better future. In June, 1967, faced with creating a song for the first live satellite broadcast around the world, he delivered the message All You Need is Love to 350 million viewers. As the Dragon takes flight this year, each of us is summoned to follow his lead and rise above the mediocrity and complacency of our own lives, and glimpse a magical future beyond.
Since 1967, Summer of Love, and, twenty years later, 1987, the start of the Harmonic Convergence, no year of the last fifty has captured collective imagination prior to its arrival so much as 2012. The significance of this year was first heralded in August of 1987, when Jose Arguelles and other visionaries detected something unique about it.
In 1987, during the post-1960s Reaganistic backlash that set in, it was felt by many that the Revolution had gone belly-up, and was in dire need of resuscitation. The Harmonic Convergence was introduced as a powerful long-term cosmic realignment to bring world culture back into accord with inner truth.
Although mass media misinterpreted the event to begin and end in the Summer of '87, the visionary literature of the time portrayed those days as the beginning of a fifty-year cultural reorientation, a cosmic chiropractic adjustment to snap the main frame of world consciousness back in place, and bring humanity into accord with higher dimensions.
August of '87 was envisioned as the opening sequence of a half-century long Evolutionary Act split into two quarter-century Scenes, with 2012 being the all-important pivot point. Scene One: The Exposure, taking place between 1987 and 2012, was to inform humanity how far off-track we had strayed. True to this prophecy, in recent years it's become more and more evident that our culture has gone off the rails and is drastically in need of something more than quick fixes and cosmetic solutions, but a sweeping realignment that crosses political and international borders, a rethinking of the whole purpose of humanity.
Scene Two: The Reawakening, from 2012 to 2037, was intended to steer us back on track, by awakening more and more people to the fact that each of us has far more power to turn the
world around than we previously believed, and far more celestial assistance.
The Harmonic Convergence was ignited by a rare five-way conjunction of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars in a tight corner of Leo known as the Galactic Corridor. The most
cosmic aspect of the Convergence presented our Milky Way galaxy as one chakra (energy wheel) in the vast body of a Mega-Organism whose chakras are whole galaxies. Leo rules the heart, and our galaxy was envisioned as the Heart Chakra, or feeling center, of this massive organism. Not just Earth, but the whole galaxy, was visualized to be coming into alignment over a fifty-year period, as each of us comes back into alignment with ourselves. This vision reinforced the idea of the 2,000-year Age of Pisces ending, and the beginning of the Aquarian Age, which awakens the higher truth slumbering in mass consciousness.
Opposites Attract: Leo & Aquarius
Leo is the Sign of the Self, which is the opposite and all-important Shadow side of Aquarius. If the Age of Aquarius heralds the oneness of us all, Leo champions the truth of
our individuality. Both are needed more than ever at this pivot point of the ages. Poised on the verge of Aquarius, we can't merge into oneness until dealing with Self. You can't
graduate beyond individuality until you find out who you are. Until you claim your own unique creative genius, you can't transcend your selfhood because you don't know what it is
It's in the hearts of you and I that the Revolution of our time begins. It's your heart that strives to awaken you to both the great distortions and truths of our time. The greatest distortions of our time are that love can't happen, goons rule the world, and the future is bleak. The secret truth of our time is that a world-changing spirit force sleeps in the soul of every man, woman and child. Once this force awakens en masse nothing can stop it.
A Revolution in Consciousness
The Sixties began a Revolution in Consciousness, but it's up to you and me to pick up the torch and invent green paths through the End Time of a dysfunctional civilization. We men
must open our hearts, and dismantle the Propaganda Machine of false leaders that ruin the world. We must stand up to corrupt power and expose the fact the emperor has no clothes. We must commit ourselves to seek new forms of power, both inner and outer. Women must gain the courage to follow the truth of their creative dreams through the coming years of rebuilding the world from the ground up, as inventors, pioneers and bridge builders, as leaders to blaze trails from the old that's dying to the new that's busy being born.
The world-changing vision we're in need of now must come from many parts of the globe, young and old, rich and poor.
Music, art, poetry, film, dance and writing, as they have done at every major turning point in world civilization, will play a crucial role in blazing trails out of the old into the new. The internet is the supreme mouthpiece of our age, with the power to radiate news of the new everywhere instantly. The stage is set for the greatest turnaround the world has seen - if you can turn around your own doubt and skepticism, and become willing to believe.
It won't be easy. In 2012 and coming years as old thought forms die and obsolete structures crumble, many people are going to freak out. Outbreaks of panic and pandemonium will ripple through the shared psychic space. But we have many allies. As the old crumbles, new leaders will arise from the ranks of young and old to ensure that our children inherit a living green Earth, rather than a pile of rubble. In this all-important Year of the Dragon, it's time to move on from the dawning of the Age of Aquarius into the actual age itself, where the awareness of our commonality trumps the deadly obsolete knowledge of our differences.

PRINT THESE AND STICK THEM ON YOUR REFRIGERATOR, TO REFER TO THROUGH THE YEAR.
On January 23 we enter the Year of the Dragon, who flies higher than all other Oriental Animal years, and sees more. By daring yourself to believe in the highest dream you can dream, you can fly with the Dragon. The following predictions apply mostly to people born in each Sign, but since we all contain all twelve signs in some unique distribution, more than one of the descriptions may apply to you.
ARIES (And to the Ram in each of us) You're being made over from the ground up. With Uranus, Planet of Revolution, surging through your home turf, the ground shakes beneath your feet. Earthquakes and lightning jackhammer whatever part of your security system got hooked in karmic ruts. Sarcasm and denial point to your key life lesson: if somebody really is in your way as much as you like to protest they are - they're an exact reflection of who you used to be in some past life you have yet to resolve.
TAURUS (And to the Bull within) Jupiter thrusts open the curtains of your Innocence and Experience, summoning you to an epic, once-in-a-lifetime Feast of the Senses, where love proves as rich and fulfilling as you suspected it was when you were a child and didn't know any better.
GEMINI (And to the Twins in each of us)
Open your Heart.
Open your Mind.
Follow that all the way.
CANCER (And to the Crab in us all) Deep in the set-apart tide pool where your personality-self keeps everyone off the scent of your true nature, you commune with powers that glide your ride through the wild tides of our time. Remind us of the simple clear ways to revere existence that you have come to know so well.
LEO (And to the Lion within)
The Lion of your Soul, flung down long-lost back roads of existence, outwardly wandering unrecognized through the centuries like Aragorn, while inwardly remaining steadfast and true - Step up to claim your right to preside over the royal occasion of your own Becoming.
VIRGO (And to the Virgin in everyone) Contemplate: How will you find again in Earth what you once knew in Spirit?
LIBRA (And to the Balance in each of us) Everything changes when you let yourself be as magically alive as you truly are, without either pressing the issue, or holding anything back.
SCORPIO (And to the Scorpion in all) Down lost and twisting corridors of the soul, the Dark Queen's come-hither gesture beckons to you from her hiding place, where she telepathically whispers that there is only love and love and more love, and everything pretending to be something other than love, which ultimately breaks down to the same thing, if you track it deeply enough through each convoluted winding to its lair.
SAGITTARIUS (And to the Archer in everyone) Ride through the year like a great spiritual outlaw, stealing boredom and complacency from the world, and replacing it with your gargantuan appetite for life.
CAPRICORN (And to the SeaGoat in all) Ancient stargazers gave you a mer-tail to warn human Ego it can only rise as high in world affairs as we become willing to sink into the darkness of our disowned shadow self, and there switch on the light of self-mastery. Capricorn is the World Dragon itself, who bursts into flame this year with an Earth Magic that can rebuild the world from the roots. Be the magical mystical leader of us all.
AQUARIUS (And to the Water Bearer in each of us, whose time has finally begun)
Plunge headfirst into the churning Void without worrying who's gonna catch you. The most outlandish part of you isn't only your resistance to being normal, but your spark of genius, once your paradigm shifts.
PISCES (And to the Fish in us all, who's being relieved of two thousand years of karma)
Deep healing, reckoning with the worst we have wrought through the ages.
Sweet pulsating awareness of the best we are capable of.
Past surrenders to future.
