The Journey to Your Calling and Your Happiness

(approx. 5-minute read) –

This is the third part in exploring the Time between Time, aka: the 12 days between the moon year (354 days) and the sun year (365 days). They are the connection to the cycles of our personal development and our progress in life.

This time we’re talking about our relationships, our ‘rebirth’, the understanding of our destiny, and the themes for July, August and September 2020.
(Tip: If you’re just joining you might want to give the first two posts a quick read:
Your Ego and the Month of January and Your Passage from February to June 2020.)

Are you ready for the next three days?

Everything we covered so far had to do with our inside journey. From hereon on we’ll step outside our ‘comfort zone’: connecting with others, open our hearts and minds to the unknown and our subconscious, and journeying into the higher realms of philosophy and understanding.

What you’ll need

  • White Sage Smudge
  • Paper and Pen or Notebook
  • Your Natal Birth Chart (if available)
  • Tarot Cards (or Oracle deck)
  • About an hour worth of your time to invest in your Self and your goals

What you’ll do

Prepare your daily ritual by setting up your space as described in Your Ego and the Month of January and Your Passage from February to June 2020.  
Update your notes and swap the questions in the Consciousness Exercise with the ones below according to focus and month.

Ready? Let’s continue!

Day 7: Dec 31 | Night 7: Dec 31-Jan 01
Relationships, Commitment, Contracts and the month of July 2020
Connect to and feel the energy of “I BALANCE”. 

  • Think about your ability to connect with others, your urge to mix and socialize, your capacity for intimacy, your sense of ‘give and take’. What do you seek in others to fulfill yourself? 
    The point in this area is not only your relationships with others but also how you balance your value and your time with and within the relationships. Are you too involved or are you too distanced? Do you have a solid understanding of ‘what is enough’ for your needs and for your freedom? 
    Do you feel your connections are supportive of your desired goals and lifestyle?
  • Connect with the Energy of your Heart Chakra and sink into the energy of balance and value. How does it feel?
  • Ask your Self “What is the quality and the reality of my relationships?” and complete this sentence “Because of what I represent my relationships are…” the first word or sequence of words that comes to mind.
  • Astrological Birth Chart: Review the data in the 7th house. Compare it to what you just noted in the exercise. What does your birth chart show in this house? (Sign on cusp, Planets in signs). How does this house feel to you? What information are you picking up?
  • Draw your Tarot cards for the universal influence, the challenge and the gift for the month

Day 8: Jan 01 | Night 8: Jan 01-Jan 02
Primal Realizations, Regeneration, Reign and the month of August 2020
Connect to and feel the energy of “I DESIRE”. 

This is the area where we come to realize which thinking and behavior has been manipulated onto us by others and we’re merely a representation of those who taught us their believes and manners. This is the area in which we can experience a rebirth in that we allow ourselves a journey into the unknown of our own desires and discover our own path. This is the area in which we take the reign and go for what is genuinely ours. 

  • Think about your abstract dreams and desires and what you need to unlearn in order to open the doors to what you yet have to authentically experience.
    In which areas in your life do you want to experience a rebirth—letting go of limiting believes and behavior patterns?
  • Connect with the Energy of your Sacral Chakra and sink into the energy of letting go, rebirth, the numinous and the unknown. How does it feel?
  • Ask your Self “What did I not yet accomplish and what am I longing for?” and complete this sentence “Because of what I value, I desire …” the first word or sequence of words that comes to mind.
  • Astrological Birth Chart: Review the data in the 8th house. Compare it to what you just noted in the exercise. What does your birth chart show in this house? (Sign on cusp, Planets in signs). How does this house feel to you? What information are you picking up?
  • Draw your Tarot cards for the universal influence, the challenge and the gift for the month

Day 9: Jan 02 | Night 9: Jan 02-Jan 03
Authentic Thinking, Philosophy, Travel and the month of September 2020
Connect to and feel the energy of “I SEE”. 

With the new awareness due to our ‘rebirth’, after freeing ourselves from presuppositions, we now go on our journeys to discover and learn all that which allows us to establish our goals, our authority, our calling. The journey is not necessarily that of physical travel, but the travel into exploring the areas of our destiny. From hereon on we are connected to our goals, we learn with passion, and everything we encounter is philosophical by default due to our genuine interest and determination to succeed.

  • Think about your aspirations, the things you believe to be true, your idealism, your dreams.
    What is your desired area of expertise? In which topic would you like to journey into and become an expert? What is of your highest interest?
  • Connect with the Energy of your Third Eye Chakra and sink into the energy of your intuition, your inner wisdom. How does it feel?
  • Ask your Self “What do I truly care for, what do I stand for?” and complete this sentence “Because of my what I learn and study, I specialize in …” the first word or sequence of words that comes to mind.
  • Astrological Birth Chart: Review the data in the 9th house. Compare it to what you just noted in the exercise. What does your birth chart show in this house? (Sign on cusp, Planets in signs). How does this house feel to you? What information are you picking up?
  • Draw your Tarot cards for the universal influence, the challenge and the gift for the month

Tomorrow we’re heading into the last quarter and therefore the last three days of the 12 days of ‘Time between Time’. And at this point I want to congratulate you for being consistent and courageous in the exploration of your Self. Facing and embracing what is deep in our subconscious is hard because we often are too fearful to look at our Self closely in the mirror. But if we want to grow and experience progress, if we want to live our calling and our happiness, we must search deep. Because no-one besides our Self knows what we truly desire.

“It is always our own self that we find at the end of the journey. The sooner we face that self, the better.”

~Ella Maillart
