Before I learned about the value of circles, and cycles, I looked at life and Astrology from a linear perspective. In 1992 I was introduced to cycles, and Medicine Wheels by Master Astrologer Robert “Buz” Meyers.
Ezekiel = Wheels within wheels; When the living creatures went, the wheels went; when the living creatures lifted off, the wheels lifted off. Wherever the spirit went, they went, the wheels sticking right with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When the creatures went, the wheels went; when the creatures stopped, the wheels stopped; when the creatures lifted off, the wheels lifted off, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
In Astrology we see the Sun/Moon as the major bodies moving in cyclical relationship (wheel) with each other as they move from New Moon to New Moon. Dane Rudhyar, in 1967 introduced the “Lunation Cycle” with eight phases instead of the four quarters most people are familiar. Working with phases allows one to see life as an evolutionary, constantly developing process. Once a person takes note of this process through awareness they begin to automatically connect with the natural rhythm of energy that flows in the universe.
When you experience life’s natural rhythm you can become more attuned to daily life. This awakens one to their unconscious responses to life when one realizes they can make preferred responses that lead to breakthroughs which improve the quality of life. “On Time” means to use the present moment to become aware of how we use our energy and how we are connected to the Divine Plan.
We know that at certain ages we received programming from parents, events and others which remain in our bodies. Looking at life from a cyclical way helps us identify the programming was imprinted. Awareness of these programs will help us recognize old patterns of response which can be re-defined.
All people have a masculine/feminine side, bodies, which respond to life very differently regardless of gender. Each Phase in the cycle has a masculine or feminine identity that connects to its opposite. So each cycle allows us to work from these bodies to find a balance in our lives.
Healing comes from aligning your physical self with your high self. This choice makes us completely conscious as we connect with the natural flow of energy with all living organisms on the planet. We then live in complete “harmony” with inner and outer life. You are healed when you become conscious to the adjustments needed to your reality and make them. You become your true authentic self as you raise your vibrations and that of the living universe.
