Ophiuchus and the Grand Cycle: Chaos and Convergence on Planet Earth

Great change is taking place on our planet as we witness chaos, revolutions, and technological breakthroughs. We are living in a time like no other. Some would have us believe we are living in a time of doom, but we have moved beyond this potential into a more powerful timeline that is moving humanity forward rapidly into the light. Literally.

Our solar system orbits the great central sun at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. This orbit brings us through the photon belt of the Pleiades every 25,920 years. In 1962 astronomers discovered that Earth would be entering this photon belt stream in 2012. This cycle is nestled within more coinciding cycles and culminate together into a Grand Cycle. We are at a highly significant point, a 206-million-year cycle that is referred to as Harmonic Convergence. The Ancient Mayans knew that 2012 was a point beyond which there were no prophecies. Stories of Armageddon, the apocalypse, and other well-known prophecies of doom were schedule to occur leading up to 2012, the year of our likely demise.

But here we are, alive and well on planet Earth and raring to go. Humanity is indeed at a point of ascension, a point in which we are growing into something more, we are coming home to who we really are. We lift the veil of illusion to find our true God Selves in our unity. The Sun entered Ophiuchus on November 30 and will remain in front of Ophiuchus until December 18. This “recently discovered” sign of the zodiac represents the awakening of humanity.

Ophiuchus is the Serpent Bearer and is a large constellation straddling the celestial equator. It is opposite of Orion (the Gate of Man) and is depicted as a man grasping a serpent.  It is the only constellation of human form which aligns directly with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, a representation of humanity’s highest potential as spiritual and physical beings. Many people across the globe are awakening, and becoming enlightened in many forms of spiritual learning.

Ophiuchus

Ophiuchus is the controversial 13th sign of the Zodiac and ranges from November 29 through December 17. Those of this sign are said to be seekers of wisdom and knowledge and that they are good at healing and architecture. This sign is associated with Imhotep who lived in the 27th Century BC in Ancient Egypt, also known as Aesculapius by the Ancient Greeks. Imhotep, “the one who comes in peace”; was an Egyptian chancellor to the pharaoh Djoser, probable architect of the step pyramid, and high priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis.

There is a connection with Ophiuchus and the thirteenth invisible strand of DNA. Humans have twelve visible strands and the thirteenth one is a form of consciousness that we will experience when Orion and Ophiuchus reunite in harmony, removing the veil and coming together in perfect balance. This will be the highest evolution of the universe.

Ophiuchus has no opposite polarity and is associated with the Awakening and Ascension of the human race. At the end of time, Mayans said that man would awaken the serpent (also known as Quetzalcoatl to the Aztecs) to save the world from cataclysmic destruction and carry the nine races of man forward. Many indigenous people also have prophecies that are similar. For example, the native American Anishnabe prophesied the seven fires and the seventh fire is the time when all of humanity unites together in unity.

The evolution of consciousness on Earth is happening now. Many have changed their ways, conducting their own research and soul searching. You are invited to join this wave of people who are finding independent and critical thinking to be life changing. Humanity is bringing the dark to the light and no longer standing for corruption, illness, lies and darkness.

Ophiuchus has transcended the wheel of twelve zodiacs and represents the foundation of humanity moving into the future. Reuniting with our higher selves is at the core of the Mayan 2012 phenomenon, the Satya Yuga, the Hopi Fifth World, the Anishnabe Seven Fires, and the Age of Aquarius. Humanity is seeking out change and embracing transformative healing within global society.

Ophiuchus is the healer, ushering in the grand time of change, inviting every single one of us to review, heal, and connect. We are truly entering a time like no other. When we look at the grand cycles of the galaxy, we can see the merging of science and the esoteric.

I invite you to think about how this present cycle through the constellation of Ophiuchus mirrors situations in your personal life as well as in our global life. Where do you see yourself transcending old patterns and wanting to move forward? What feels old and like it needs to be left behind? What do you want to replace that with? How do you see this on a larger global scale? In what ways can humanity heal that which the light has revealed?

This is an exciting time, a culmination of cycles and the awakening of human kind. Our current position among the stars is magnificently significant. Ophiuchus sits opposite of Orion, the Gate of Man. Humanity has been behind a veil for thousands of years, and now as we come back into alignment with Ophiuchus, the Gate of Man will be opened, and we will reunite with our ancient wisdom and the knowledge that together, we are one.

Thinking Like a Mountain: Connecting to Gridwork

When I was nineteen years old I found a book called “Thinking Like a Mountain” and I truly loved that book. The internet had not quite arrived, so my options were different back then. My choices included brick-and-mortar bookstores, local and university libraries, esoteric shops, the occasional magazine from a far-away health food store, and specialty publications. This dictated my course of research and the level of access I had to new ideas and information.

Finding a gem of a book like “Thinking Like a Mountain” felt significant, relevant, and it was a relief because it offered me a connection in a world that was radically disconnected from its roots. I embodied the wisdom and joy of nature often, so I could easily put myself into the perspective of a lush mountain, a wise old tree, or a gliding snowy owl.

I connected with the land often. In my early twenties I would head out to my secret hiding space at the base of a gnarled old tree at the bank of a fast-moving river, intending to clear my energies and set aside sacred space, offering my positive intent to the universe in ceremony. I didn’t have a name for it, but it felt like it was in alignment with who I was. Little did I know I was doing gridwork.

The advent of the internet has allowed my obsession with research to become far reaching, highly fine-tuned, and liberating. One thing always leads to another and this is the absolute beauty of evolution. My life evolved through a variety of periods, leading to a large variety of interests including ancient history, pre-history, esoteric knowledge, ancient wisdom, astronomy, astrology, physics, geometry, metaphysics, quantum physics, mythology, traditional arts, writing, art, music, animal sciences, geology, geography, gardening, and meteorology, to name a few.

When I was a young child, I connected to animals, not only in physical reality, but also in dreams and daydreams. I thought everyone could see my canine and woodland friends that were with me often. We especially loved exploring and playing outside together, talking to the trees and dancing in the rain, enjoying the rich scent of earth and the incredible joy found running through a field of wild and magical dandelions. As I began to grow up, I was told I had a good imagination and that no one else could see my friends. Slowly they disappeared as new activities and demands replaced them in “the real world”.

As I grew older I found deep connections to nature and the elemental world through other means. Whether digging into the fertile earth with my bare hands to tend a garden, gazing at twinkling stars, admiring glittery quartz in the sunshine, or flying on the back of jubilant horse across a shimmering green field in summer, I have always felt a deep reverence and love for nature.

Gaia and all her celestial companions have accompanied me in my dreams and visions, allowing me to visit and interact with numerous earthy landscapes and galactic locales. Some very spiritually significant experiences took place in dreams around the time of my early twenties, such as a dream in which I was in the wilderness in the Rocky Mountains at the banks of a flowing river. It was a glorious place, my canine companion at my side, calling in the wild animals. They arrived in pairs; fish, birds, bear, hawks, owls, caribou, elk, coyote, fox, eagles, crows, deer, moose, wolves, otters, beaver, skunk, horses, wild cats, and creatures of all types gathered around me, peaceful and in the spirit of full, loving cooperation to work together for a better world. Again, I had no idea I was doing grid work.

Life rolls forward, a dance of synchronicity, forever bringing me ever closer to that which lies deep within my heart. My love of sweet mother earth, my passion for ancient wisdom, and my love of science and metaphysics has moved me down a beautiful path which has culminated in my recognition that I have been doing gridwork all my life, and in past lives. My connection to energy, place, and intent have played a strong roll in my life.

Thinking Like a Mountain

About a year ago I came across an online video of a joyful woman, her eyes bright and full of life. She was smiling and laughing the most genuine laugh as she told us about her rich and meaningful experiences among the trees and mountains. She was traveling and talking about working with the energies of the earth. I was instantly riveted to this beautiful, easy, natural expression of service. I had met Katie IndiCrow.

A few months later I decided to take a beginning Gridwork class with Katie through IndiCrow Energetics. I learned a new language that helped me to describe how I had been interacting with energy and nature all those years. I developed innovative knowledge and techniques, finding a whole new level of connection as well as a new community to share with.

After the class ended I was thinking about taking the advanced gridwork class that Katie offered. I checked in with my higher self and immediately received an immediate and resounding “Yes! Do it!” It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was already an energy worker and Reiki Master but adding the advanced Gridwork to my skill set brought me to an entirely new level of awareness and ability. I am so grateful to have this connection.

This book that I am sharing here is called Connecting In: Powering Up Ourselves and the Grids! and it’s written by my teacher and friend, Katie IndiCrow. It explains the ancient craft of gridwork and how we can learn to align, connect, and power up the energetic network that supports earth and our existence. Through this process we assist in the process of embodying love and affecting the energetic connections, working towards a cooperative state of love, compassion, and gratitude.

Through the act of intentionally raising the vibration and reconnecting to the grids, we are assisting in supporting change and the transition of earth through ascension. Together we work in teams, utilizing our collective wisdom, skills, and positive intent.

Katie IndiCrow states “The idea of managing the earth’s energy system and coming together in ceremony or around alignments is something that many people remember. The feeling they get the first time they act as an ascension anchor is familiar, loving, and close! This is because there have been times in our history where gathering at various sites and nodal points and/or coming together in collective action has been key to our survival.”

As a gridworker, I have grown a great deal, expanding into a more empowered version of my self. Through this daily practice I connect with life energy and I embody love and compassion. There are still life challenges, of course, but overall life has become “way nicer and more friendly” as Katie might say.

I invite you to connect to the energy of nature and feel how you connect with it. Katie is an advanced Gridwork teacher and has many valuable offerings. I also teach workshops and classes about aspects that are a part of gridwork.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions, or want to learn more. I am so excited to hear about how you connected to what I have written here and how it relates to your own experiences.

In love and light,

Sonya
