Yearly Natural Cycles of Prosperity: We have gotten away from these natural cycles because we have artificial light and heat. This has allowed us to be externally focused and externally productive during the time of year when Nature is telling us we need to focus inward, to plan and prepare, to dream the dreams that society is afraid of. The dreams that we all have of fulfilling Spirit’s purpose for our existence begin in the exploration of our heart’s desires, acted on by faith, nurtured by hope, and sustained in the expression of our passion. These things develop during this time of consolidation when we focus our attention inward.
The Beginning of the Creative Cycle: In December, at the Winter Solstice (northern hemisphere), the Sun reached the apex of its arc from north to south in our sky. Now the Sun is traveling north toward the equator. The time of lowest solar energy is here. Yes, the Sun’s activating radiation is beginning to increase, just barely, just enough to give promise of new life, but not sufficient to promote external productivity.
Successful Action for Creative Endeavors: All successful creative endeavors begin with planning, accumulating, and organizational preparation. Nature tells us that this is the time for such activities. Hold off on jumping into the whirlwind of activity of new external growth. Without a solid foundation of preparation the coming expansion phase of Spring and Summer can be limited by insufficient preparation now
