With 2016 coming to a close I thought it would be interesting to look at what the energies of 2016 were all about 🙂
Because 2016 reduces to 9 (the last number in the cycle) and because the tone Cosmic is 13 which is also the last tone in the mayan cycle – 2016 was all about endings! Finishing up. Clearing out. Healing. Old things that needed to been seen, being stirred up again in order to be cleared. Yes!
Looking at the western astrological chart for just after midnight on January 1, 2016 one can see that there are just a few energies at play to our essential Structure (Sun in Capricorn) this next year. Although last year was more intense in the death/rebirth, breakdown/breakthrough, healing and transformation area (Pluto was in closer square aspect to the Sun last year, just 3 degrees on NYE – now it’s a 5 degree square from the 10 degree Capricorn Sun) AND in the “I-want-to-be-FREE-do-to-what-I-want-to-do!” area (last year Uranus was in a 2 degree square to the Sun, this year it’s a 6 degree square to the Sun) these energies are still with us in 2016. Especially for anyone with the Sun or personal planets in the signs of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra. Last year the Sun was in a more distant sextile aspect to Neptune with a 5 degree orb – but this year this sextile aspect is closer: just 3 degrees. So that’s a sweet, subtle shift, I’d say. We are still in the process of transforming the structures that are no longer working in our lives, still doing some deep healing on many levels, via Pluto and still in the process of breaking free from any structures that restrict our unique genius selves via Uranus 🙂 Uranus always urges us to change the situation so that we can feel more free, more ourselves, more like our True Selves.
This Pluto and Uranus energy dovetails nicely with Red Cosmic Skywalker energy since Skywalker always urges us to loosen our moorings! To have courage! To shift your points of reference! To be an Explorer of New Directions! Perhaps you discovered new healing modalities that helped you to clear? Perhaps you saw yourself and your journey in a new light that allowed you to easily release the old hurt and pain?
Aside: Oh, I see that: “Red Skywalker is a time/space traveller who can jump dimensions to assist you in realizing Paradise on Earth.” …which reminds me that I had a time-travelling dream yesterday! It was very real and the second part involved a very gentleman-ly young man, bathed in the glow of candlelight (there was no electricity in the 1700s!) swinging on a swing with me from the rafters of my atelier attic space and it was pretty heavenly… 🙂 Felt like Paradise on Earth, yes! Chuckle.
Now let’s take a look at Neptune: With Neptune sextiling the Sun we have access to PARADISE, guidance from our higher selves and guides, having that ‘plugged in’ feeling, intuition, compassion, acceptance, music, poetry, reverie… I see this part of Red Skywalker being activated through Neptune:
“Red Skywalker is unlimited in form but often chooses the form of the angelic messenger.
A person who embodies cosmic wisdom may be known as a sky-walker, sage or bodhisattva. When others see such light in human form, they feel the vibration of heaven. This vibration may be embodied by you or experienced with a guru, master, an energy such as Red Skywalker, or in a ‘chance’ encounter with an extraordinary person.
An encounter with the energy of Red Skywalker can spark a deep yearning within you for reunion with the Source. Yet from this place of love and compassion, you also have a desire (embodied in physical form) to serve the light. This is the place in you that has the courage to fully express unconditional love, the depths of your being. Red Skywalker asks you to live the new myth by bringing this heaven (or Paradise, if you prefer that word) to Earth in your daily life. As this reality is lived, it touches and awakens the same truth in others.
Red Skywalker represents balance in your life – not static balance, but a dynamic equilibrium that includes both your present expression and your starseeded self. In Red Skywalker’s star-glyph you see that the pillars of heaven don’t appear to touch the Earth. You are the element that appears to be missing in the star-glyph. You are the one whose expression of the light assists in drawing the pillars of heaven to Earth.
Joining these pillars in yourself can be viewed as reuniting your male and female aspects. Together, in balance, we create the pillars of the etheric temples of heaven on Earth.
The natural state of every system moves toward balance that is fluid and free, as in dance. That balance is experienced differently by each person, but it often brings a sense of steadiness or centeredness even in the midst of movement and change. When you are dancing, you can use your very state of imbalance to create the fluidity of the dance.”

Now let’s look at the numerology of 2016. Most people say “Twenty Sixteen” so if we break it down that way we have 20 and 16 to work with.
The energy of 20 reduces to a 2. The way I’ve been taught to read it is that you take the Zero (one’s connection with one’s Divine Self and with all things: animals, trees, rocks, wind, sun, ocean, humans…) and put it through the energy of the Two (relationship, duality, polarity) in order to get to the Two (relationship, balance, integration of the male/female yin/yang, being able to see the ‘others’ perspective). So it’s learning to Relate via a highly compassionate vibration that we have here in 20.
The energy of 16 reduces to a 7. Take the Six energy (one’s sense of Beauty, Love, Home) and put it through the 1 (your Individual, independent Self) to get to Seven: acknowledging your powerful, mystical self…manifesting your mystical power…and also taking time to rest in nature, in the quiet, meditative…yet powerful…because all your bodies (etheric, phsysical, emotional) are all in alignment…
Then you take the 2 + the 7 to get 9 for the year which is interesting because it’s a completion year. Wrapping things up. Also, feeling satisfied with where you are and being in a stable enough position that you can shine the light of your knowledge and experience in supporting and encouraging others. A kind of take-it-easy year….not much to DO…but a great year to BE.
I feel that the 9 energy dovetails well with the Cosmic energy of the year, too. Cosmic energy is Tone 13 in the dreamspell calendar and 13 is the very last tone before it starts a new cycle with 1. So 13, too, is a completion, finishing up year. The difference between these two energies is subtle. Cosmic energy is just a little more dynamic. It is still a great year to just BE because, the way I see it, Cosmic energy is like you’re being swept away by a great river…sometimes there are rapids, sometimes there are back-eddies, sometimes it’s smooth sailing and sometimes you fly off a waterfall…no doing is required…what is required is to just set your intention and then go with the flow…it’s a dance and you’re flowing towards Change! In fact, the Cosmic tone puts out the call for radical change that will truly begin to take shape in 2017.
By the time 2017 rolls around, with year 1 (Magnetic), you’ll be starting a brand new cycle, refreshed and ready for action.
“Keywords for Cosmic Tone 13: Wild card, unseen forces, unexpected change, open system, touch of destiny, interdimensional shift.
Thirteen is the ray of universal movement, the foundation of self within the foundation of Essence Self combined with the rhythm of the trinity. The Cosmic Tone of 13 touches you with the hand of unseen forces and radical change. It will catalyze into movement whatever resists change or is unexamined or stationary. You are being touched by fate, moved through identifications of self into open consciousness.
Olin, the Mayan goddess of movement, asks you to surrender to the perfection of the larger pattern of your Essence Self. From the perspective of surrender and trust, what movement is being called for? Pay attention to synchronicities and seeming coincidences that jump into your awareness. Thirteen provides the possibility of a radical “frequency shift,” offering you limitless new openings. Become a skywalker. Be open and flexible, allowing changing reference points to become dynamic allies. Open to the workings of destiny offered by universal movement.”

Ahhhh I just realized that Red Skywalker is the thirteenth daykeeper, too, so the Tone (13, Cosmic) and the Daykeeper (Red Skywalker) are in perfect synchronicity!! How wonderful! It’s like the ultimate Skywalker/Cosmic year with both energies being so in sync! 🙂 Change and New Directions and Being the Light are afoot!
Sooooo enjoy this year…loosen your moorings and let what needs to be released just slough away easily as you ride your sparklingly alive, vital river towards that something new that awaits you…!
The last time we experienced a Cosmic year was in 2003 (when it was Yellow Star). Which means that 2004 was a Magnetic (Tone 1) year that started a brand new cycle for our structures. Hmmmm! Interestingly it was in November, 2004 that I planned my first two months in Mexico (for January/February 2005)….that sure was a big structural change for me as I ended up living in Mexico!
I know that there are a ton of cycles to follow: moon cycles, solar return birthday cycles, mayan dreamspell galactic birthday cycles…and now we have this rather arbitrary January 1st general New Year cycle to follow, too. Each cycle has their purpose, as I see it. The January 1st “New Year” cycle’s purpose, to me, rules the Saturnian structures of our lives since the Sun is in Capricorn (and rules Saturn) so that is the area we can place our intentions for the biggest effect: our physical body, job, relationships, home – all those physical structures in our lives.
