The third and last eclipse of Spring Eclipse Season 2013, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, is passing now. The intensity of the eclipses is ready to subside soon, as we also enter the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on May 9.
Soon it will be time to survey the land of your life, so you can better take stock of where everything landed during this passing storm.
For some these last several weeks, since the New Moon in Aries on April 10, have been a whirlwind ride. Much has shifted and changed, so the next couple of weeks will be good for assessing where you are at now in your attitudes, beliefs, and expectations for your life.
Soon, around the New Moon in Gemini on June 8, it will be time to get on your horse and ride forward. Everything may not be totally known and clear yet, but the energies will take us forward, ready or not. That New Moon will put a bookend on Spring Eclipse Season 2013, but the repercussions of those eclipses will last for a long time. The transformational atmosphere has been radically shifted, which for many means their life has changed in a big way over the last couple of months.
But for now, resist the temptation of leaping to conclusions too fast. Let the next couple of weeks pass first before making any big judgments as to what happened and why.
Whenever there are quite intense planetary alignments, as there have been the last several weeks with the eclipses and Uranus square Pluto, it takes time to process and review before knowing the full impact of what has just happened.
Sometimes, however, the dye has been cast, direction for our life has been noted, and you are merely waiting for when the gun sounds to move fully forward.
In the greater world much has happened over the last several weeks. The Eclipse Season began with a roar, as there was a horrible bombing at the Boston Marathon. There have been other quite explosive events, like a fire and explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas, a collapsed factory in Bangladesh that killed over a thousand people, several volcano eruptions, and a huge and devastating tornado in Oklahoma.
There have been several scandals surrounding the Obama administration, an unbelievable new power given to Monsanto, and the Middle East being on the verge of World War.
Most concerning is what is happening in Syria. There are so many countries and peoples invested in how that turns out: USA, Israel, Lebanon,Russia, Iran, Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and others.
Muslims have become the new designated enemy throughout much of America and the Western World. And the Western World and America are now considered enemies to many of those Muslim peoples, especially so because of the perceived prejudice shown against Palestine and Muslim countries by America , and the favor shown toward Israel.
I watched the movie “42” recently and remembered how blacks were the hated enemies back when they were not allowed to even drink from the same water fountains as whites. Jews and Italians were enemies before that, gays have been hated by many forever but apparently now not as much, Russia was a big enemy during the Cold War. Then when their empire fell and they were no longer so feared, it did not take long before Muslims became enemy #1, especially so after 9-11.
Is this the normal way for humans to act, always needing an enemy or someone to hate? Sure has been for thousands of years. In my estimation, if we do not change this desire toward enemy creation, we will destroy our world. Weapons of Mass Destruction in a world where we are all so close now through mass transportation, communication, and commerce, spells disaster if we do not learn to accept one another as brothers and sisters on this planet.
The Aquarian Age is Diversity in Unity, and we will get there together, knowing we are all members of the same family. But know that the next few years will bring some very difficult challenges on our way to a better day.
Watch closely the next two New Moons on June 8 and July 8, and the time in between, for conflict to break out in the Middle East, especially so as that time period also includes powerful aspects to the USA and Israeli natal Mars placements- Mars the traditional god of war.
It is true that there are movements led by Secretary of State Kerry to build a peace conference for Syria and a new peace track for Israel/Palestine relations. This is a last ditch effort to avert a full blown war in the region. We can hope and pray that effort is a true effort to find peace, a peace made through respect and honoring of all parties concerned. No other kind of peace will last long.
In your personal life you are in the process of awakening to new ways, and of your path getting cleared of all the old programmed patterns, beliefs and attitudes that have kept you stuck in old ways.
You know that your consciousness is transforming, that any disillusions you have recently experienced are the Universe’s way of bringing you to Truth, which is necessary for living an authentic life.
You know that your heartbreaks are ultimately breakthroughs into deeper healing, and a grieving and releasing of old wounds, abuses, and ego dramas. Living from love, not fear is a natural result of releasing old toxic relationship patterns.
Many of those fear-based relationship patterns came from a lack of trust in others. As you release and heal, you will attract to your self healthier relationships, ones built from a platform of self love and self respect.
As you build that foundation, you are also seeing people and the world from a new lens, a lens that can visualize a better world, one built on Love and Truth and mutual respect.
As more and more people see from these new viewpoints, we collectively end an old world of fear, illusion, and mistrust.
We come together to build our Aquarian Age.
Much love to you all.
