Salango-Trinidad: Terrible Solstice

I READ this article last night, that December 21, the day of the Solstice, is going to be a terrible day. Some astrologers say it’s going to be the ‘most awful day’ day this 2017.

The sun moves into Capricorn, causing the alignment of the sun and Saturn. The last time it happened was 350 years ago. This, coupled with Mercury in retrograde turning direct has something to do with the chaotic energies.

The article goes on to say that travel is going to be disrupted, expect to be stuck in airports, bus stations, etc, etc. Also, expect delays in communication, malfunctioning equipment, meltdowns perhaps, and chaos.

So, today, of all days, don’t do anything major, like buy something pricey, start a business, sign a contract, get engaged, get married, move house, because, anything you start today, you’d need to have to fix later.

This is still sound advice, Mercury in retrograde ends on December 23rd.

While reading the article, I imagined freak weather, maybe even terrorist activity, perhaps North Korea sending out another missile. I thought of planes malfunctioning in mid-flight, and I felt a tiny twinge of alarm.
We have a flight today, from Sapporo to Osaka.

But rather than panic and worry about the alignment of stars and constellations, we chose to move quicker to make room for unforeseen events, if ever.

By 7:20 this morning, all bags were packed. By 8:20 am, we were checked out of the hotel and heading for the airport bus station.

So far, the major delay we’ve experienced was a bit of confusion when we checked in our bags.

With just 5 more minutes to boarding, the lady in charge said we should pay for additional 2 bags because we couldn’t hand carry them. She took out her measuring tape, checked their dimensions. Then she had us bring down all our bags and packages to be weighed.

We just took out the packages from inside the oversized bags, and it was okay. We still ended up first to board.

Right now, it’s 12:18, we’re on the plane, and there is turbulence. The plane is shaking.

I take a deep breath, and lift my anxiety to Archangel Michael. There is this prayer that was given to us by the late Tess Tumang. She advised us to pray this whenever we travel.

We’ve chosen to invoke Archangel Michael when we’re worried as well.

I remember two of our dear friends’ experience when they were bound for Tuguegarao. Allow me to copy paste verbatim, with names edited out
“Maam Tess, I need to share our experience with (__) this morning. We were on board the 10 am flight going home. At about 15 miles approaching Tugue, t’was zero visibility and the pilot announced that we were not given clearance to land and that he would try to land the plane once cleared.

The flight going to Isabela was cancelled and so were the previous flights yesterday because of bad weather.

Anyways, getting back to my story. We started our orasyon, invoked the help of St Michael, plus our crystals. After 30 min of circling tugue, with several attempts to land, we finally touched down. Halleluyah.

And while we were waiting for our bags at the luggage area, (__) and I had a chitchat. She said that when she was meditating, she imagined St Michael carrying ang guiding our plane to safety. And mine was, I imagined St Michael seated on top of the plane watching over the cloud. Lol.

Amazing di ba Maam? St Michael never fails.”

Yes, to both. St. Michael never fails. And it’s amazing.

Sometimes, our clients call to say they’ve dreamt of disasters happening, or have visions of accidents.

We always tell them to send light to the situation, and to pray the St Michael prayer, substituting ‘we’ for ‘they’.

Right now, I’m praying to Archangel Michael for all of our friends and their families, and for everyone who will be reading this, to be protected from this Solstice’s planetary effects.

December 21 in the US is technically December 22 for most of Asia. So tomorrow (today) is the terrible day.

I’m thinking, if you’re reading this article, it means we’ve surviving the worst day this year, and this is because we’ve been protected by Archangel Michael.

See us at #29 Sari-sari Section, Baguio City Market, for the St. Michael Prayer. We are open Mondays to Saturdays from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
