With a new foundation in place that leveraged all of 2015-16’s blossoming changes in a 5 Personal Year, the year ahead looks to be one that brings in more harmony that we all have learned to expect from the Stellar Slowhand guitar great.
It’s been a whirlwind of changes over the past year during 2015-16. Life promises to move forward in a continuous stream from what Clapton ultimately began at the beginning of his current 9 year span back in 2011, during his last 1 Personal Year, when a many new seeds where once again planted in his life.
Looking back into history a bit, like other 3 musicians such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, (03 October), 30/3 birthdate Clapton innately has followed his karmic path that deeply understands things in 3.
We have all obviously seen this be displayed as he has related his natural understanding of rhythm through music. Claiming his true Aries gift of leadership, he is recognized as one of the most influential guitarists of all time. He is the only 3 time inductee to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: as a solo artist, as well as with his bands The Yardbirds and Cream.
Equally like guitar great Stevie, Eric battled with drug and alcohol addictions. He has successfully overcome them.
As a 25/7 Personal Year of healing, inner work and solace was coming to a close in January 1982, in his 8 Personal Month of taking responsibility, he checked into rehab and faced his darkest fear of becoming sober. As 1982-83’s 8 Personal Year carried out, he learned from his experiences, and found stability once again. An 8 Year wishes to grant anyone rewards, and for Clapton that year, this was his very own life.
“In the lowest moments of my life, the only reason I didn’t commit suicide was that I knew I wouldn’t be able to drink any more if I was dead. It was the only thing I thought was worth living for, and the idea that people were about to try and remove me from alcohol was so terrible that I drank and drank and drank, and they had to practically carry me into the clinic.” ~Eric Clapton
1990-91 marked the next 25/7 Personal Year of healing, inner work and solace for Clapton, in where the world witnessed him go through very painful grievances from the tragic losses of Stevie Ray Vaughan (27 August 1990) and his son Conor (20 March 1991) during that year’s cycle.
“I almost subconsciously used music for myself as a healing agent, and lo and behold, it worked… I have got a great deal of happiness and a great deal of healing from music.” ~Eric Clapton, reflecting upon writing and healing through “Tears in Heaven.”
One has to absolutely commend Clapton for remaining strong and utilizing his courage, qualities his Aries Sun sign grants his free will to choose from. There is no question that a recovering addict’s toughest moments are when extreme life challenges cycle into their experiences. Congratulations Eric for staying true to what really matters: you. Many others in your field are not here with us today to be able to say the same thing.
Looking forward, it still remains a secret as to what anyone can expect as to who are the“superstar surprise special guests” at the upcoming 40th Anniversary celebration of The Last Waltz in New Orleans, 29 and 30 April. Fans can only hope he will be one of them.
In his now current 6 Personal Year of settling into a fresh cycle of peaceful feeling and finding a new balance, April marks his 1 Personal Month, and the 29th and 30th are 3 and 4 Personal Days for Clapton. The original concert date was only scheduled for the 30th, at the Saegner Theater’s address, 1111 Canal Street. See the pattern of the 1 & 4 here?
As the anticipated epic 40 year celebration of The Band’s The Last Waltz aligns upon these dates (equally under the cycle of reflection and going back to what already exists -which will be in play- called Mercury Retrograde), it surely would be a stellar opportunity for new beginnings on an old theme. Clapton is currently not touring, so everyone will just have to wait and see.
Once again, looking to a birth name, more evidence falls into place about how we can spell out the truth from how It’s All in the Name. We are so very happy you are still here with us Eric, to shine brightly in your 71st and new 6 Personal Year. May you always continue to change the world.
