Today the Sun discharges the degree where Chiron, the archetypal energy of wounding, healing, and teaching, was discovered.  With this today, we have "two's" of all kinds, including two themes:

1 - LINKING, CONNECTING, COLLABORATING of two things - two worlds, two realms, two hearts, two tries, two people, two choices, two minds, two ideas, two teachings, two anything.  The "inner" and the "outer" come together.  "As above, so below."  "Heaven and Earth."  A link up with our higher consciousness allows us to reach another level.  Working with others to achieve a mutual goal is highly supported today.  (Sun at "the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow," Venus at "two cobblers working at a table," and Mercury at "a man successfully expresses himself in two realms at once.")

2- CREATIVITY TO IGNITE THE IMAGINATION (and thus expanding the imagination to regain an opportunity/forward Second Renaissance).

Before expounding on this theme, it has become clear to me on this eighth day of the New Year, that we may want to clear the table of what we think we know.  Inherently, this year's energetic of "through imagination, a lost opportunity is regained" implies brand new -- as in not thought of before.  We carry wisdom gained from the past with us, but the more we can put aside what we are "sure" of or what we thought was a certainty, the better position we are in to fully engage this energy.

This means we clear our minds (or "clear the decks" using the naval imagery so popular in this month's energetics) as much as possible.  I suggest this includes even our core notions of physics and the mechanics of the universe.  I say this, wise owls, because we are going to question the fabric of existence this year.  Several weeks ago I said the way the world was and looks to us would be very different by the end of this astrological year.  To prepare, we need to clear space in our minds to be able to process what we learn.  We aim to get to the place where NOTHING surprises us -- nothing.

And so, when we clear our preconceptions, perceptions, and predilections, we create space for creativity and imagination to inspire us.  We gain whatever we need: solutions, strength, ingenuity, options, guidance, direction, a plan, a missing piece, simplicity, hope, peace.

We may not have any idea of exactly what we need right now to actualize our lives and the world we want, hence the reason to be open-minded.

Chiron is King today, and Chiron is directly associated with the "inner child."  Childlike energy repeats within two of the energetics today, so we may want to approach things from the attitude of "what would be more fun or simpler?" (Earth at "a youth holding a lighted candle in devotional ritual" and the Moon conjunct the North Node early today at "children on a swing in a huge oak tree.")

Chiron's energy brings up old traumas to be healed so that a new and wiser experience of life can occur.  Chiron is a great catalyst.  He was the Teacher of Teachers, and we learn much from what has been painful.  Keep this in mind today if sadness catches hold for you.  It's 3 Water in the Mayan Sacred Calendar, and Water days can be the most emotional.  If this becomes challenging, try practicing the skill of clearing the field today, seeing that the past is the past and has only brought us to the opportunity for a new way today.  Link to a better way -- one that is part of a better world.  Add in your highest and best frequency.

Let's work hard today to link up, interconnect, collaborate and CREATE today!

True Alignments: collaboration, the gestalt, respect, on the spiritual path and open to being taught, sharing responsibility, successful communications and expressions, open-minded, keeping it simple, promises or vows

Catalysts for Change:  taking all the credit for the group's work, schisms, lunacy/losing the mind, causing disruption, attention-seeking behavior, "throwing someone under the bus" (especially at work), lack of proper reverence or respect, avoiding work, feelings hopelessness or meaninglessness (engage your inner child to counter this - what did you like to do as a child or what did you wish you could do?), committing to things that are dissatisfying (change it)
