Eclipse Season Winter 2020 can still be seen in our rear-view mirrors.
There is more to process through, and hopefully each of us finds the time to do so, with professional support, or close friends, or time for being alone with yourself to sort through and heal from.
The last couple of months brought up so much from deep within our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.
They have been “brought back up” into our awareness, because we need more clarity, direction, insight, and release of old patterns that do not serve us or our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.
Our collective human lives are really in crisis now, as we get more and more certain that our old paradigm is failing us, as we struggle to find our way forward.
Many struggle to be present, or even to just wanting to be present. Our phones, computers and other tech escapes have us living more and more in a virtual world bubble.
Many more young members of society awaken each morning as adults now. And as they look out at the world we live in, they are scared to death.
Mass murders at schools, workplaces, restaurants, night clubs and other frequented places, gives many people pause when thinking about going outside their homes for any reason.
Your work needs and your friendship needs can more and more often be “satisfied” from home or on a computer.
Sex lives are also more and more virtual, with internet porn, dating site hookups, and now human-like sex robots.
We do not even need to go out for groceries or restaurant food, which can be delivered to our door, along with everything else you want and need taken care of by Amazon.
And look at the world “out there”. Our American culture is split, as it once was at the Civil War.
Our economy is for show, not nearly as good as it is being sold to us.
And during this latest Eclipse Season, we were brought to the brink of war with Iran ( which could have triggered a World War); The Coronavirus outbreak of illness and death started in China; the almost war with Iran that could have led to World War III; and economy and stock market on the brink of severe downturn; and a presidential impeachment process that is about power and politics more than desires for truth, justice, fairness, and community.
Of course our world is at a crisis point at a Crossroads based on bringing back our values that are connected to “our better angels” as Abraham Lincoln alerted us to. OR NOT making those “better angel” values our highest priority. The impeachment process showed us, when a vote came for calling witnesses and documents, how winning politically is more important than our cherished values and ideals.
We are in deep trouble, and can no longer operate from a default pattern of energies, habits, and opinions that keep us stuck in the old world, paradigm and Age that do not work for us, or help provide us with Truth, Love and care for one another and our community.
This week, as we are in the beginning of the Lunar Cycle begun at the New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th, begin our week at Imbolc on the 2nd of February.
Imbolc has been considered a sacred day for hundreds of years, especially by those who find spiritual Oneness in Nature.
Imbolc, called Groundhog Day in our current pop culture, is the half way marker between Winter and Spring. It was considered as a Time of Initiation.
And Groundhog Day is seeing shadows that tell people if Spring is coming early in any given year.
Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on Monday February 3, shifting our mind into more imaginative and creative thinking and communicating.
Staunch adherents of “cause and effect” logic find Mercury in Pisces quite challenging, as it is into finding connections and right brain unity more than the bottom line of left brain thinking.
This week tops off with Venus entering battler Aries on Friday the 7th.
This is Venus’ best example of being empowered, self assertive, and true to Self.
Venus in Aries is independent and self confident. Closest Goddess to this Venus placement in Aries is Athena.
And to top off this week, we have a Full Moon in Leo on the 9th at 2:33 AM EST.
The Sun is in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo, which makes the Full Moon.
So Aquarius’ mind is quite different than Leo’s heart. At this Full Moon you may get a realization that trusting mind more than heart is not the right way to believe and lead one’s life.
Leo ideally is the open heart of a 3 year old whose heart is ready to take on all experiences. And she also appreciates all the attention she may be getting.
Aquarius knows the value of a clear mind that also possesses higher values. It operates from a web of thought patterns, similar to the Internet.
I did much study this week to be able to find who the next USA president will be.
I felt pretty sure when I predicted Obama would be the Democrat nominee and McCain the Republican nominee in 2008, then Obama the winner. I made prediction around this time of year I believe. Since I was able to predict so early in the process, using my own astro formulas, I believe those 2 were destined to win.
Then in 2016 I predicted early that Trump would be the nominee and eventual winner
This time it is not so easy, as 3 or 4 people do well in the formula.
Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and in a lesser way Bloomberg and Warren all meet the formula criteria. So does Trump fit the formula.
But Elizabeth Warren is also so connected to the Eclipses this year in June and November and most of all she is connected to the Jupiter conjunct Saturn aspect in December that is a symbol of the New Age of Aquarius beginning. Her natal Jupiter is at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius. The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction is exactly at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius
I predict Elizabeth Warren will win, But I do so with less confidence than in previous years.
In Addition to all this potential confusion, the Universe is throwing a big curve ball on Election Day this year because it has the same crazy planetary aspect it had on Election Day November 7, 2000.
Mercury that night in 2000 was shifting from Retrograde to Direct, and news anchors all kept going back and forth predicting Bush won, then Gore, then Bush, etc.
We did not know the winner until weeks later when the Supreme Court got involved. Bush won.
Very strangely, and perhaps most importantly, this Election Day on November 3 has the same planetary alignment as it did on Election Day in November 2000. Mercury goes from Retrograde to Direct that day.
Maybe no one will be the clear winner that night. Maybe Trump will not accept the apparent win by Biden or Bernie or Warren. Very Good chance one of those 2 alternatives or one we cannot see yet will play out. To be continued.
