Occupy Wall Street is growing by leaps and bounds and today October 15 is a day when this movement is spreading to many cities all over the world. I understand that Rome and Melbourne Australia are experiencing the biggest protests so far today.
This is part of the grand movement into an Aquarian Age, as we have been letting you know for some time now. We have also alerted you all that the two biggest events that will shake us out of an old age and paradigm is the fall of the global economy and explosive upheavals in the Middle East.
The Aquarian Age is about equality, no more privilege and no more greater rights to the few.
The cusp of the Aquarian Age was being approached back in the 18th century, around the time when Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius) was discovered in 1781. At that time swirling around our collective human consciousness were two revolutions, the American and French Revolutions. Both of these revolutions were in line with what is the meaning of Uranus and Aquarius.
The people then were sick and tired of the privileged aristocracy and royalty governing and controlling their lives and taking all the riches. America started the revolutionary war against England and brought down that empire in order to be in charge of and responsibe for their own lives.
In their constitution and bill of rights they spoke of all people being created equal, with god given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This equality and liberty are such Aquarian principles, and the United States, born on July 4 1776 has in its natal chart that day its Moon in Aquarius. These Aquarian values, as stated, are the inner lunar values of that revolutionary country.
Now as we enter more closely the portals of the Aquarian Age, the movement toward world wide liberty and equality gets stronger and stronger. Self determination for all peoples and nations is getting stronger and stronger also.
Bankers and corporatations, wealthy and privileged peoples are the new royalty. And the people of this world are fed up with so few owning so much of the resources and wealth and power of this world.
We are all playing a game that is rewarding so few people of the world. We are playing Monopoly for real in the world. It is about owning all the houses and property while others go bankrupt and poor. Perhaps we should buy up all the Monopoly games in the world and burn them all in protest.
That is not a game people want to play anymore, as too many are losing and the game is not serving the majority of people in the world. This is the old paradigm and age- survival of the fittest- dog eat dog mentality. It is time for it to go.
And it is time for the hate filled “eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth” mentality to end also. This mentality is at the root of the conflict in the Middle East between the Israelis and Palestinians. It is a part of the Old Testament which is run by a god of judgment and vengeance. This is also part of an old age that is ready to burn.
And people are ready to move beyond this war like mentality through civil disobedience to change the world instead of violence. But first the Middle East is on the verge of blowing up. This explosion will show people around the world that the old ways of hate and violence must end.
It is no mere coincidence that in this part of the world the major religions have such strong roots. These old religions have lost much of their original spiritual connection and instead in all too many cases are a part of this old paradigm of winning and at war for one’s god, and proving one’s god and religion are superior to someone else’s god and religion. How spiritual is that?
It is time for this old way to end and it will end in the Middle East with war there. The Powers that Were are beginning to beat war drums against Iran. That horrible war will be a major turning point away from the Old Paradigm and Age.
Remember that the old world is currently run by a Military/Economic Empire and that world structure must be transformed for us to move into the Aquarian Age.
The economic half of that world structure has been coming down with the world wide recession since 2007, the European economic crisis as seen in Greece and Ireland, and now the Occupy Wall Street movement that is going global.
The military half of that world domination has been threatened in the Arab Spring, and the coming explosions in the Middle East will be the beginning of the downfall of the old Military control of the people.
Power is coming to the people of the world who will build strong local communities in connection with other local communities all over the world. This will be a world community connected in web like fashion like the internet. Together this new way of being on the Earth will heal our Earth and human family and begin new ways of living on this Earth- in cooperation and connection.
By December 2020 when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, after many years of Uranus square Pluto, we will have arrived in the new land of Aquarius.
Uranus conjunct Pluto occured in 1965-66 and brought in the ’60s revolution. And as Uranus squares Pluto in 2012-2016, the first major aspect between them since the ’60s explodes into our lives. The Military Economic domination of the rights of peoples of the world will be ending, in not always graceful ways.
We are so fortunate to be alive now at such an important turning point in the human evolutionary voyage. We can expect many surprises also over the next several years, including a better understanding of life all around this Universe, not just here on Earth. We will make more visible and intimate contact with that life.
This coming week October 16-22 we are in waning half of the lunar cycle begun on the New Moon in Libra on September 27. The next New Moon is on October 26 in Scorpio. The Sun moves into Scorpio on October 23. We are feeling the days get shorter and shorter and the cold air coming in more and more. Allow your consciousness to go deeper into your feelings and soul.
Carl Calleman says the Mayan Calendar ends on October 28 this year. He says we are moving more strongly into Unity Consciouness now. Comet Elenin is at its closest point to the Earth this week, but it has been getting weaker in strength according to reports. Let’s look more closely at the next two weeks to see how events synchronize with the calendar ending and movement of the comet.
It does not look so far as if it will be as dramatic as some have predicted. The reverend who predicted the end of the world Rapture in May of this year, a Mr. Camping, now says this rapture will occur before the end of October.
Remember that the planets will keep moving and the Sun will keep shining and the world will not be ending. But the world as we know it is more and more rapidly transforming into a new Aquarian Age.
