one way to translate the word “apocalypse” is “the end of time.” another way is, “the lifting of the veil.” consider these two together, and you might arrive to - “time is the veil.”
i do think of this period of time we’re in as apocalyptic. but i don’t think of it as the end of the world. i think of it as the end of time.
when i say “the end of time,” i’m not thinking of everything stopping. i’m thinking of the end of the illusion of time.
when i say the end of the illusion of time, i mean the release of an over emphasis of kronos, and an embracing of kairos. these are 2 words in the greek language for time. kronos = chronological time, like what we think of when we speak of time in the english language. time the way that saturn dictates it. the gregorian calendar: minutes, days, weeks, years, measures kronos time.
kairos = the quality of time. how time feels. time if say, neptune, or maybe the moon dictated it. we don’t have a word for kairos in english. so we tend not to value it, or even consider it’s existence.
tuning into kairos can mean tuning into astrological rhythms - following the lunar cycle, sun seasons, transits, etc. - but it can also mean simply living in the moment. pausing to notice how you feel, & responding to that noticing. tuning into kairos can mean tuning into your natural rhythms. (macro/micro - your natural rhythms and astrological rhythms are not separate)
anyways, i’m always thinking about this. and a conversation with my dear friend @theenergeticbody this morning reminded me that these ideas which have become cemented in my brain are not in everyone’s sphere of awareness, so i felt like sharing them.
tuning into kairos has been life changing for me. my workshop with @innersensehealingarts next saturday on *embracing lunar rhythms* will touch on some of the tools i’ve used to do so. join me if you’re curious. :)
a part of my 2H saturn return has actually been about grappling with time. time is a resource, and therefore a 2H topic. i actually learned about the concept of kairos for the first time on the day of my EXACT saturn return w/ JP at @pdxastro. astrology is the realest.
