Choose Your Reality in 2012

by Mark Dodich


There is an abundance of hype about 2012 and the end of the Mayan Calendar. Opinions range from earthquakes dropping California into the ocean to mass ascension into advanced dimensions. Still others suggest that 2012 is another Y2K non-event.

The truth of the matter is that we each choose our own reality, and 2012 energies push you to make a choice about the next step in your life. And you will be pushed!

Explosive Uranus inserts itself more deeply into impatient Aries; but in 2012, there is an added death & rebirth factor that continues through 2015. You saw the early impact last year through earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand. It went on to detonate political change in the Mediterranean, the Tea Party, Oppose Wall Street movements, and the debt crisis.

Regardless of your belief about the New Year, it is clearly evident that old methods and paradigms of thinking no longer work. It isn’t so much what you actually do in 2012, but it is critically important to decide on the attitude and beliefs by which you will live your life during these shifting energies.

If you choose a fear-based perspective, there will be no shortage of outer world events to support your view. Earthquakes and climate-related catastrophes continue as revolutionary Uranus and destructive Pluto bounce off each other. The birth charts of Japan and New Zealand continue to be activated; Syria and Cuba are ready for transformation.

But, do you really want to live in a fear-based reality? The positive approach to Uranus and Pluto is to awaken to the fact that the old way doesn’t work anymore. It is wise to take the “let go and let God” approach as you move into new frequencies.

Watch Israel and Palestine in the spring as expansive Jupiter in Taurus adds harmony to the natal charts of their countries. Both have fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) in their charts, which can be stubborn and hard-headed. Countries and people born under these rigid signs are helped (or shall we call it “kicked in the butt?”) in making necessary changes.

Yes, you will need to invest some time and money in opening to new ideas, technologies and methods of living your life. Universal Law demands that you pay your dues to move into new energetic frequencies.

Before you complain about the cost or learning curve of a new piece of technology, starting your own business, or opening/changing your relationship status, consider the cost of not changing. If you agree that you chose to be incarnated on earth during this great time of planetary evolution, then you must bite the bullet and step into the incoming vibration.

Fortunately, the shifting energy this year is not all associated with head-banging Uranus and destructive Pluto. Visionary Neptune moves into compassionate Pisces on February 3rd. It would be wise to make friends with this softer, feminine tone because it will be with you until 2025.

Neptune and Pisces sneaks up on you like the fog quietly blowing onshore at the beach. As you watch the blaring Uranus and Pluto headlines on page one of the newspaper, remember to turn in a few pages to see Neptune in Pisces quietly showing people helping each other to live a more gentle and compassionate life.

Intuition, meditation and spiritual healing will get more attention in the changing world. Compassion for starving people in the Sudan and other places receive assistance in spite of challenging economics.

In the world, you will increasingly see overabundance or drought issues with water.

The plight of poisoned fish and ocean issues such as drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean and desalination will be in the news. New drugs (both good and bad) and advances in television & film technology are coming.

Hidden secrets come to light. This can include spies, archaeology finds that contradict current beliefs (especially religious) and tragedies such as the Penn State child abuse discovery or mass murders in African countries.

The early months of 2012 ask you to look at the reality you want to create, and then make choices in your daily life that reflect the beliefs by which you choose to live.

Begin 2012 by cleansing you body, mind, emotions and spirit- and that includes your overflowing closets. Ambitious Mars is retrograde in purifying Virgo from January 23rd to April 13th. Prepare future projects in a behind-the-scenes way during this time period. You will be called upon to act upon your renewed vision after April.
