Role of Server
The Server is a solid, inspirational role in the Michael Teaching, whose primary focus is to serve. In a Server year, you may find yourself wanting to be of service to others, the earth or your favorite passion. Server energy is resourceful and willing to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. Because it is ordinal, you may find yourself humbly taking on tasks behind the scenes without need for recognition. This is a good year to reflect upon how your conduct impacts others and the earth. Headline in local Walnut Creek, California, newspaper: Join Celebration of Historic Inauguration and Get Involved in ‘Day of Service.’
Secondary Role of Sage
With Sage energy, everybody and their cousin will want to get their opinions heard this year. America shifted from 7th young to 1st mature, which will produce a lot of fear in the younger souls. Be prepared for lots of complaining, arguing and verbal attacks
We are in the midst of
a powerful transformation, which creates a high level of fear.
This fear will be the driving force behind peoples’ need to complain and argue about what to do with resources power.
Goal of Submission
This is also called Devotion, because it is the need to be devoted to something -- a cause, mission, situation, calling -- to feel satisfied. You may feel the need to dedicate or devote yourself to your marriage, ending world hunger, helping homeless in your community, getting healthy or paying off your debts. Princess Diana had the Goal of Devotion, which was reflected in her genuine desire to help HIV patients and end the use of land mines. Whatever you feel driven to do, take action. This is not the time to procrastinate.
Attitude of Spiritualist
Visionary and open to possibilities, this attitude can help you to see new avenues and paths to your life choices. Because it supports a strong connection to spirituality or religion, it assists one to be able to connect to Source and transcend the physical illusion. Spiritualist attitude is uplifting and creates hope. Spiritualist slides to Stoic in the Michael Teaching. If you aren’t anchored in spirit and a vision for yourself this year, you may slide to the negative pole of Stoic, which is resignation, and generally numb out. What is your vision in 2009?
Mode of Perseverance
This mode matches the energy of the Ox Year in Chinese Astrology. The ox just walks along at a plodding pace, one hoof at a time, until the job gets done. And that’s how we get through the year, with persistence and self-discipline, plodding along, until we achieve what we desire. Perseverance slides to Aggression, so at the beginning of 2009 we will see aggressive behavior, but by the Spring Equinox we definitely settle in to persevering.
Chief Feature of Martyrdom
Be prepared for people feeling sorry for themselves and claiming someone or something else is responsible for their hardships. The martyred individual is one who claims their situation is beyond their control and that they have no responsibility for their current problems. Blagojevich and Palin are demonstrating martyrdom, claiming
unfair treatment without taking any responsibility for their own behavior. Be on the lookout for corporations asking for handouts because, after all, it wasn’t their fault they are in dire straits currently. Individuals who feel wronged by another may seek retribution.
Intellectual Center / Moving Part
The Michael Teaching describes the intellectual center, moving part, as a year where we take action on our thoughts. Make a list of what needs to get done and then take action. The challenge is to follow through and complete what needs to be done without getting caught up in a nervous frenzy of ideas. Use the mode of perseverance to help you with completion.
Frequency of 75 initially, then lowering to 35
Frequency is measured from 0-100, and defines how fast a pace the energy moves. (100 being extremely fast paced) In the beginning of 2009, the pace surges to 75, but by the Spring Equinox the pace slows down to 35. For those high frequency individuals, the low pace may feel uncomfortable, as things may not being going fast enough for you. Wear some amethyst gemstones, as they will connect you to spirit, allowing you to let go of impatience.
