The power of transformation grows stronger as we get closer the USA Presidential Election
As of today as I write this forecast on October 8, the outward signs all point to a Clinton victory on November 9. Donald Trump got caught several years ago by a hot mic that recorded him making very disrespectful remarks about women.
Though he has suffered many such turning points in this election process, this one seems to be even worse, especially coming at this time so close to Election Day.
But there is still a full month and 2 debates to go before the Election.
As we wrote back about a year ago, Trump will win if there is some event just prior to the Election that threatens USA security- like a terrorist attack or market crash.
Additionally some huge negative revelation about Hilary Clinton by Wikileaks could have the same effect.
I truly believe there will be more twists and turns prior to Election Day, so no “counting chickens before they are hatched”.
This Election is a huge turning point for America and all the world. President Obama will be seen as having had a big effect on our country and world, especially so in having the USA be a more equal member of the global community.
But transformation can be a journey of to and fro, in that sometimes there is a powerful feeling of new birth followed by a backtrack to old ways that cannot fully die before being starkly experienced again.
Will we go back toward more dysfunctional and toxic energies before we can embrace the new ways and new consciousness of the Age of Aquarius?
Sometimes a President leads us into a chapter of our lives that takes us backwards and forwards in transformation at the same time.
Nixon represented an America stuck in the past with corruption, bigotry, power abuse, and a desire to keep privilege in the same hands as before.
But that chapter of life that he represented also brought with it great transformational leaps forward as revolutionary energies brought a new world of greater equality for women, blacks, and others.
Nixon resigned from office and the war in Viet Nam ended.
So no matter who wins the Presidential Election this November, the powerful waves of Transformation will bring a tsunami of change.
No one person nor what they represent is bigger than the cycles of the Universe and Nature.
This does not mean it makes no difference who wins or that your vote does not count.
Who becomes president will affect the tone and quality of our human experience
Will transformation happen more gracefully or will it bring us more conflict and difficulty?
Right now we are entering the second quarter Moon of the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon on September 30.
The next New Moon will be on October 30 in Scorpio. That New Moon will begin the lunar cycle that will carry us through the Election.
On Election Day November 8 we will have just entered the second quarter Moon just as we are doing now. The second quarter Moon now is in Capricorn and on November 7 it will be in Aquarius.
Second quarter moons challenge the theme created at the new moon, yet they also rev up our life engines another notch- waxing more on the way to the Full Moon- the climax and major turning point of the lunar cycle.
This month’s 2nd quarter Moon in Capricorn on Sunday October 9 challenges the balance and charm of Libra with energies of grounding gravity and seriousness.
On November 7, a day before the Election, the passionate instincts of Scorpio will be challenged by the more dispassionate detached intellect of Aquarius: Passion or social consciousness?
This week, after the second quarter Moon in Capricorn, we move toward the Full Moon in Aries on October 16.
So this week you can move more forward with the waxing lunar energies. You will have more energy to get things done and be more active.
But where are you in your soul’s transformational journey, as the greater world is going through such major change?
Transformation seeks to bring us to greater authenticity and being true to our soul’s wishes.
But each of us has been conditioned and programmed to be a certain way and to live “normal” lives as society sees it.
But when we wake up with spiritual emergence, we learn we are unfulfilled by what we are doing and what we have chosen.
This can be a most liberating and at the same time most painful turning point in our lives.
We begin to see a new life more aligned with our true self and deeper needs, but we can also see that the process of transformation will require us to let go of security systems we have been accustomed to.
Our changing beliefs and transforming energy fields may then give us the feeling we are not as connected to people we love, or jobs that have given us security, or homes that have given us comfort.
A part of us may want to run away and start anew, while another part of us may want to cling even tighter to what we have known.
Always remember that a greater force is guiding the way and ultimately brings your soul’s true needs to your life.
It may not feel that way at first, as our ego is stubborn about what it wants for us. But our deeper soul and the soul of the Universe knows what we need to move through karma, or to evolve, or to satisfy our purposes for our lifetime.
Society tells us to get a good paying job, to raise a family, to prepare for retirement, and to wait until you die. Add some parties, some TV, and some vacations and what else is there?
But our deeper souls want love and truth, a life that is meaningful, self actualization, a sense of purpose, contribution, and connection; and a sense we are continually growing and evolving.
Our life is a sacred soul journey, not a random happening with no real meaning.
Know that this next month on the way to an election, with the major events we are likely to experience between now and then, is leading us through to the next chapter of life in America and on Earth.
And it is leading us ever closer to the Age of Aquarius.
Til next week,
