By now you must be feeling the high energy vibrations of this special Winter Solstice as it approaches. Its monumental arrival this year will be on December 21st. We are not the only beings that will be feeling the energy – observe your critters closely! The animals in your life will be very aware of the great energy shifts created as the axis point of the northern hemisphere reaches the point in time in which it is the furthest from the sun. Some of the signs to look for that is evidence of the ways in which your beloved critters are marking this galactic and spiritual moment in time are:
More bouts of high energy , or “craziness”, than usual
Restlessness; wanting “out” more, or demanding more attention from you
Seem to be “listening” intently for, or to, something (dogs may woof at nothing)
Looking fixedly at something, indoors or outdoors, that you do not see
Unusual levels of aloofness (especially in our feline critters), or seeming “preoccupied”
Seem to be “waiting” for something; much the way they act when anticipating your arrival
Stepped up protective behavior
Let your pet know that you understand and are also aware of the coming event. Share your good energy by way of gentle touch, soft words, and even meditating close by your critter while they are at rest. Winter Solstice creates the opening of a portal that makes the birth of new ideas, ability, gifts, peace, harmony, great changes, wisdom, and positive energy in general possible at incredibly high speed and magnitude. This is a perfect time to consciously connect with the soul energy of your animals, (physical companions and spirit guides alike), to honor Gaia, yourself, and the life in which we are blessed to live by offering love, peace and healing on all realms. If you are concerned that your critter seems over anxious or unable to chill, offer treats infused with lavender as well as burning relaxing lavender incense at night. For yourself, keep a clear quartz crystal close to your upper Chakras daily. If possible, wear one around your neck. If you have a way to place clear crystal quartz safely around your pet’s neck, please do so.
This year, the winter Solstice is marked by planetary phenomena that has not happened in 556 years; a full eclipse of the moon! When this happens the moon will appear red, hence the name “Red Planetary Earth” on the Natural Time Calendar. On the 21st, Shamans, Healers, Medicine Women, and Intuitives all over this planet will be praying for Peace and a Healthy Earth – Please join the circle.
Here are some facts to consider:
This coming Solstice brings the exact, 2-year Synchronization with the Closing of the Mayan Grand Cycle on December 21, 2012 which is heralded as the return to Zero; Completing this World Age, and the 5,125 year cycle of recorded History… On the Natural Time Calendar, this day is “Red Planetary Earth,” and “1 Muluc” on the Traditional Count.

“As the Moon appears to darken, it will actually turn a deep shade of red. The entire event lasts three-and-a-half hours. Within that, the period of totality is 72 minutes. All the phases of a 28-day lunar cycle will be condensed into three-and-a-half hours. Beyond the Full Moon, 26,000 light years away, lies Galactic Center, the heart of the Milky Way. Gazing in this direction activates your cellular memory, awakening wisdom codes deep within your being”. ~ Allison Rae
