After the Shift: What Next? A Forecast for 2013
John Wessels and Beth Owl’s Daughter
January 3, 2013
What will the world be like, now that December 21, 2012, has come and gone? Join us for this presentation of two
fascinating views on the year ahead.
John Wessels, MBA, MDiv, PhD, will begin the evening with his astrological forecast. There are two key transits—Uranus’ and Pluto’s cardinal square transit and Neptune’s transit in Pisces (its natural home)—ushering in the momentous end of one epoch in human history and the birthing of a new one. This shift coincides with the termination of the Mayan Long Count Calendar, the precession of the equinoxes, and the end of a 25,700-year cycle to begin a new one.
Next year and beyond, many people will undergo rebirth—an awakening or ascension, gradually or swiftly—to a higher spiritual state. John will talk about how we can best position ourselves for the unfolding ascension process; the transits as they relate to the United States, based on our founding chart; salient events that may unfold in the US and globally; the unconscious shadow side of coming transition; and 2013’s Mercury retrograde periods.
Beth Owl’s Daughter will show us the tarot pattern shaping the coming year. We face challenging geopolitical issues, socioeconomic questions, and pivotal changes not yet known. As we move into a complex and precipitous future, how is the tarot a guide for making life-affirming choices?
Beth explains how the numerology of dates parallels the tarot: The year 2013 reduces to the number 6, which corresponds to the archetypal energy of The Lovers card. What wisdom does the energy signature of The Lovers offer? And how might it affect us in our everyday lives? In what ways might the coming year be reminiscent of 2004, our previous Lovers Year—and how might it differ? To help us know how to be of service as we give birth to our vision for a more creative, collaborative, balanced future, Beth will lead some brief exercises to perceive and integrate the power of The Lovers card, and will pull clarifying cards to help us work with this energy in the coming year.
