As I write this week’s forecast/blog we are experiencing a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra. It is the second of two eclipses in a row that began on Spring Equinox when there was a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces.
I wrote back in March 2014 that we were entering a most important 18 month period of time, after which we would be in a greatly changed world on the way to a New Age of Aquarius.
We now have six months to go, which will be met at approximately the time of the next Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on September 27, in Libra Aries.
I also have been relating through my writing of how important the Middle East is concerning the changes of Ages, as it is where the first civilizations and organized religions were birthed.
And this spring, in between the two eclipses there were very important developments in the Middle East: Militarist Bibi Netanyahu was re-elected Prime Minister of Israel, and the formation of a nuclear deal was drawn up with Iran. Additionally ISIS of Iraq/Syria ignited an attack on Tunisia, and Yemen broke out in civil war.
Imagine my surprise this week when I read that Christian ministers and Jewish rabbis have been predicting that the 18 month period between April 2014 and late September 2015 was related to prophecies of end times occurring in the Middle East, after which a messiah would appear.
As I write this during Easter weekend, when Christ was said to have been crucified and then resurrected, there is this 3rd of 4 so-called Blood Moons, which are Total Lunar Eclipses. The first was in April 2014 when the Cardinal Grand Cross was also appearing. The last will be on September 27 this year.
These prophecies say the end times would happen when there were 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row, with no partial Lunar Eclipses in between, that would coincide with Jewish holidays.
All four of these so called Blood Moons occur on either Passover, which is happening now, or Sukkot as it will be on September 27 at the last of the 4 Blood Moons in a row.
So some Christian and Jewish ministers or scholars say end times and messiahs are approaching, with the Middle East and Israel the focal points.
I say something different about this same time period- that we are speeding up the process of transition between a Pisces Age, which started around the birth of Christ, to an Age of Aquarius, which happens in the 2020’s.
I do not believe in end times but in the changing of Ages; and I do not believe in Messiahs, but I do give credence to the need to turn to Christ-like consciousness on a mass scale in order to transform us beyond the hate filled wars that are knocking at our collective doors, especially in the Middle East.
So now as we experience the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra, it is important for each of us to find more peace in our hearts and to find a consciousness that does not place any as better than any others.
The Age of Aquarius demands a world of equality and one of Diversity within Unity. So acceptance of the differences and values between cultures, ways of life, sexual orientations, races, and religions is essential.
Many in the world now, those with continued consciousness in the old age, are setting up hatreds and battles between peoples. Battles between Muslims and Judeo/Christians; Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims; Westerners and Asian peoples; Russians and Westerners; Israelis and Palestinians; Conservatives and Liberals, etc are getting fiercer.
But many others, including a growing number of young people, are developing or have attained a consciousness of inclusiveness and inner peace.
It is a good time, as events on a personal level and a collective level are erupting in our lives, to let go of beliefs, jobs and relationships that keep us locked up in old consciousness.
It is also a good time to work out with others relationship patterns that keep you stuck in the past, keep you stuck in beliefs of loser/winner; superior/inferior; perpetrator/victim; privileged/underprivileged; or wealthy/poor.
This coming week, after the Total Lunar Eclipse on April 4, Jupiter goes Direct on Wednesday April 8.
Jupiter Direct in Leo this week will bring potential inspiration in creative endeavors, hearts that want to burst open with self expression, and desires to work with issues of self worth and self esteem.
It may also bring out the big-ego people, both in personal lives and on the world stage. So watch for those who get filled with themselves and their need to be better than others.
From now until the 18th of April at the Aries New Moon, we will be processing all that has happened from mid March until that New Moon in Aries.
Much has been shaken up, much is stirring in new ways on a very deep level inside; so we will each need some alone time and some time in meditation or contemplation to get our bearings and get centered and directed.
And then after that New Moon in Aries there will be new starts and beginnings, a fast forward movement for many.
Events that are connected to the important planetary happenings since mid march will begin after that Aries New Moon.
There was an exact Uranus/Pluto square on March 16, the last of seven in a row; a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces that occurred on the Spring Equinox; and a Total Lunar Eclipse Cardinal T-Square on April 4 that included Uranus and Pluto.
That is a lot of powerful change moving through our consciousness and lives. There is a lot of light and truth wanting to awaken us to new ways.
As this light and truth moves through our collective veins of consciousness, it often hits blockages that cause crises.
These crises are catalysts for transformation out of old patterns, behaviors, and beliefs. They help us release the outworn and connect with our deeper soul.
The connection to deeper soul and our authenticity helps us to surrender and awaken to the waves of light and truth coursing through.
We at the same time connect with the Universe and others who are becoming part of the global movement to a new world and age.
Life on Earth is not ending for our human family and there is no one coming to save us. But as an Age of Aquarius requires, we individuals will take responsibility for our human journey and will help to heal our traumas and disconnections from each other.
In the process we will help to heal our Earth and environment and get our world and human family aligned with the consciousness and ways of an Age of Aquarius.
The process may get ugly sometimes, but we humans are a hearty lot. We have survived through the evolutionary process many death defying crises. And now we are ready to mutate again so we will be aligned with the New Age.
Love and Truth are the way forward, as nothing else can light our path during the coming storms.
