This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides, taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.
Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.
Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.
For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.
This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.
That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.
Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.
So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life. Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism. And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.
Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.
In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.
We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.
Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.
The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.
But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.
Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.
Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.
But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power, and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.
The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.
There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.
We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living. There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.
Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.
Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.
Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all. He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.
On a deeper level those days are done. Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.
We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.
Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?
If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.
As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.
We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth. And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.
And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society, helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.
We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.
And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.
Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.
Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.
After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.
Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality. There is more emphasis on relationships and love.
Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just. Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.
Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.
Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.
In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year. Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.
Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.
Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.
Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls, relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.
As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take. We will know from our passions what we want to do next.
In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.
But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo). And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).
Till next week,
BTW- the world will not be ending or destroyed on September 23 as many are proclaiming. How many times have we heard that the world is ending?
I will be leading a class on Transforming Consciousness into the Golden Age of Aquarius on September 23 at noon- 6 PM Pacific Coast Time in Sedona Arizona. Astrology and your own chart will be a big part of the process.
This Autumn I will present that class as a webinar webinar for people most anywhere on the Earth. Contact me at email@example.com for more info and to sign up. The webinar will not be on September 23 as I previously stated. It will be in late October or early November. I will need your birth date, birth time, and birth place for registration.
I do deep transformational counseling and spiritual guidance to assist people to break out of old consciousness and ways, and stay on their higher path during these challenging times. Of course I use astrology as my lense for insight and perspective, for understanding your true soul identity and its journey this lifetime. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me at 207-653-7717 for more info or to set up a session.
Please take a look at the new video I made about Eclipse Season. There will be a follow up video soon.
Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created a few months ago- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ
If you need any help with your relationship now, I do couple’s counseling. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go? I use the astrological model to compare charts to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at email@example.com if interested.
And if you would like a personal reading/consultation, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
