EGYPT——Aptly and synchronistically, during the time the Sun has been in Aquarius, the revolutionary energies of “power to the people” have reigned. 19 days ago no one would ever have imagined what has happened. One of the oldest civilizations known to humans has thrown out a dictator, who held power reminiscent of Pharaohs from many centuries past. Millions of Egyptian citizens have been protesting against Mubarak and the government and for the rights of a free people of Egypt. The essence of Aquarius is individual human rights and freedom, as part of a diversified unity in community. In an Aquarian Age, the power and responsibility for the world is in the hands of the people, and people must be allowed to be self-determining.
The USA, with its natal Moon in Aquarius, helped create the mold for what is happening in Egypt and what will spread all over the globe. Back during the American Revolution, our American ancestors led us to move beyond the power of Kings and Queens and to the power of a free people. The same thing happened in France a few years later.
Now , as we are on the cusp of an Aquarian Age, Aquarian energies of liberation are on the rise. As we told you in previous writings, 2010 was about feeling the changes without the changes truly manifesting yet. 2011 is about accelerated waves of change into the Aquarian Age.
Even though over 300 people died and many more were seriously wounded, the Egyptian Revolution has so far happened rather peacefully. Hopefully this tone will continue, but we can only hope this is so. Remember that the Egyptian military has taken control of Egypt now, so there may be firm resistance against many of the ideals of this youth based Egyptian revolution. There is bound to be conflicts between the old guard and the new waves of change. Nevertheless, there is ultimately no stopping the beat of transformational change.
So hold on tight. The ride will get more intense later in the year. This is only the beginning of vast transformational change. There is even more powerful transformational change ahead.
We told you prior to the eclipses in December and early January, especially because of the Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice, that Big Events would happen during the winter season of 2011. This revolution in Egypt is the magnitude of big event we anticipated.
The astrological symbols for more dramatic change are many. Jupiter in early Aries triggered the cardinal t-square from last summer. This happened during the Egyptian uprising. Uranus in Aries, starting in mid March, and lasting all year 2011, will also trigger the cardinal t-square.
And in June and July this summer, there will be 3 eclipses in a row, the last being a Solar Eclipse Grand Cross, again in relatively early cardinal signs. The message remains new seasons of change, as cardinal signs are the first signs of seasons: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
If you have your Sun, or any other planets from your natal chart, in early to mid degrees of cardianl signs, you especially will be going though big changes.
You may feel very motivated to free your self of situations and people who keep you held back, who make you feel you cannot be true to your authentic self. Often one needs to consider practical matters before leaping out from bad situations. But the pressure to get out may get to be too much. If that happens your faith will be tested.
The people in Egypt put their lives on the line for their freedom. Your ancestors in America put their lives on the line for freedom from the controls of the King of England. No one has the right to own your heart and mind and soul- no boss, no spouse, no partner, no parent, no landlord.
Yes it is true that sometimes one must suck it up and stay in chains. But there comes a time when you know “it is time”! And when that happens you know you must go in order to keep your soul and/or sanity.
And yes here in America, so many of us think we are free, and in comparison to many other places on the globe, in many ways of course we are.
But it is also true that so many of our citizens are sheeple who have been programmed to think and act in certain ways. They stay in slumber while our country has been taken over by big government and big corporations and big military. The people here may believe that our country is “of the people, by the people and for the people”, but the reality is otherwise. Sold out representatives toe the party line, do not think for themselves, similar to their constituents. They are in allegiance to what President Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial Complex. It is the modern version of an Empire. As Eisenhhower said, the Complex will threaten our individual rights and freedoms unless we wake up.
So, will this revolutionary energy also affect the USA? Yes, but how it happens seems still in doubt. This year 2011 will show us how, as this is a year of big revolutionary and evolutionary winds of change.
At the least the world around us will change so much as to challenge us to make big changes also. The Middle East has begun to transform in a big way, and this transformation will greatly affect Israel and the USA. If they do not become more humble and open to working with Arab and Muslim peoples, they will go through much pain and suffering.
We are entering a multi-polar world structure, no longer one dominated by a Superpower or superpowers. It is time to begin to respect all peoples all over the world as equals in a widely diverse community. Iran is the country most hated now by the USA and Israel. They are the evil enemy now.
We must quickly change our paradigm and viewpoint and accept this changing world. All peoples must be accepted and respected and listened to. If we do not change rather quickly, we can expect many painful lessons.
The highlight of this week ahead is Friday, when there is a full moon in Aquarius/Leo and later that day the Sun moves into Pisces. Climax and some resolution between opposites is sought. Aquarius is the power of the individual and group and Leo is the power of the personality. Watch for the clash between the two to play out later this week.
Sun in Pisces brings in the last monh of winter. It is time to surrender to your inner world, to the unseen spiritual world. As you get in touch with these deeper realities, feel more, increase your sensitivity to others. Pisces wants more empathy and that can only happen if you get the spotlight off your self, and instead tune into what someone else is saying or going through. Your relationships will improve as a result. So will your soul.
See you next week,
