About the 24
Just past the top of the cycle, today’s perspective is holding, sophisticated and earthy. Believe me, it is grown-up here! Note, below in the keywords, that 24 is associated with 12:00, the last of the three earth months. There is a fear of falling, like around 4:00-5:00, but less threatening, too, as it grows into itself. I suppose at this point, there is a realization of being young/old and all the things that can be done with this knowledge. Implied in much of the 24 symbols is the idea of structure within freedom and vice versus.The foundational consciousness of 24 is very aware of the apparent chaos and order of the physical world and when tapped into this energy, uses its free will to effect concrete manifestation. The main challenge that this perspective deals with how it gets bound up with the expression of the month in which it is palced. For example, because 5:00 is a mental month, we might expect to see communication being held back or re-expressed as flow instead. There many forms of communication and the children demonstrate this. We know now that 5:00 is two – or more – at once – twins – and unpredictable unless you understand that all these different perspectives exist. Wholeness is found today by being conscious of, and true to, societal values, working hard and grounding in a stable and reliable system that respects all members of society and their requests, as well as honoring the boundaries of the communication. People want to see “responsible” today. Also, remember that judgment (finding proper balance in a too broad way, applying your perspective to others) is a tendency this late in the cycle, and is best
carefully exercised.
