This is a very important “turning point” week ahead. It is time for a New Chapter of our life stories to soon begin.
A powerful spring 2012 Eclipse Season with a Venus Passage is passing. The first eclipse was a New Moon Solar Eclipse on May 20. That began a lunar cycle, which included a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on June 4 and a Venus passage on June5/6, that ends on June 19 this week at 11:02 AM EDT with a New Moon in Gemini.
That Eclipse Season shook up our collective consciousness and lives, took us out of our usual balance, and left us in a new zone, one for many not totally defined yet.
But this coming week, we will know more, and ready or not begin the voyage forward into that new life chapter.
The New Moon in Gemini on June 19 is a stronger New Moon than the usual new moon because on that same day Mars comes full circle from its recent retrograde period. That is because on June 19 it finally goes back to the spot it began retrograde on January 24, 2012,at 23+ degrees of Virgo. Mars, the planet of action, force, and movement forward completes the cycle and has us all ready to begin anew.
Closely following the New Moon and Mars completion is the annual seasonal change of Summer Solstice on June 20 at 7:09 PM EDT.
On June 24 is the first of seven passes of revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto.
On June 25 is the hand of time Saturn going back Direct again, setting our stop watches to begin again.
And on June 27 Venus goes back Direct also, being retrograde since May 15. Relationships issues are ready to move forward again.
So the Eclipses and Venus Passage shook us up out of our old habits and status quo positions; this next 10 days or so we make transition toward the New Chapter in our life. Afterwards: All Systems are Go.
In the greater world we can see this shift as we look at the Greek election this weekend; the Egyptian Elections this weekend; the likely last step in the Iranian talks on June 19/20; and a Syrian crisis coming to a head.
The Greek elections will show us much about where the global economy is going, as Greek citizens’ votes will decide if the recent European bailouts will hold or not. Greece, of course is historically a very important country in western civilization roots. The European and Global Economies will be greatly affected.
The Egyptian elections will show us much about what really broke open with the Arab Spring in 2011 and how much influence Islamists will have in the Egyptian Government. The future of Israel hangs in the balance.
In Moscow will be the talks between Iran and World Powers trying to convince Iran to give up its Nuclear programs. If there is not much progress this time, war drums will certainly get very loud.
So the future direction of our World System is very much at a stake during this coming period. A New World Chapter is about to ensue. More clarity about the potential forms of world transformation into an Aquarian Age will show itself. How graceful and how painful the transition is in the balance.
Watch the news very closely during the next 10 days for other stories that will show us important movements in our human story on Earth as we move into an Aquarian Age. In coming weeks we will also look at the coming Presidential Election and the charts of the Presidential candidates.
And in your own life, what new chapter are you moving into? What have you been letting go? What chapter is now ending? Have there been recent deaths or departures of loved ones or pets? What period of your life did they represent?
What has been changing in your relationships recently? Are you ready to move out of old ways and patterns that are not right for you anymore? Will the relationship end or is it instead ready to transform? Is your relationship ready to move forward. Are you moving in together or getting married soon?
Are you ready for new education or schooling? Is your career and job life ready for a new chapter? Are you spiritually ready to progress to a new level? In some way each of us is now ready or getting ready to move forward into a New Chapter of our lives, and so is the World and Universe.
This coming chapter will be a most important and profound chapter, as soon our collective world will go through much change and transformation, much more than most are imagining. 2012 will be a very crucial year for beginning vast changes in our world and all our lives.
But it is only the beginning, not the end. The next several years, especially so with the Uranus square Pluto aspect of 2012-2015, will show us deep transformation of our world. Remember that the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in 1965-66 brought great revolutionary energies of the ’60s.
And in 2014 Uranus and Pluto square each other while in close aspect to the USA natal Sun at 13+ degrees of Cancer. The time leading up to this aspect and afterwards promise deep and vast change for us in the USA. Our very way of life and our place in the Global Community will be greatly transformed. This is a hugely important aspect for America, and as it impacts our Sun it promises to change our collective sense of identity and purpose.
We so need now to return to our founding principles of liberty, justice, fairness and equality, and self determination for all peoples. We will need to release our identity as Superpower and being better than other countries and peoples.
The Aquarian Age demands “all are created equal” with certain inalienable rights like “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. This precludes our desires to take over other countries and mold them into being how we want them to be, to serve our interests.
The balance of world power will change and soon.
In your own life, let go of that which keeps you programmed by society or family into being what you should be instead of actualizing your Authentic Soul Self, aligned with the Universe and its movement into an Aquarian Age.
The Universe will support these efforts, as long as they are accomplished in balance with your practical life demands. If you feel you are clear with a new purpose in your life, remember that the movement forward is a process of letting go of the past and moving forward to your new life. It does not happen all at once.
Always look for the signs and synchronicities and wait for the Universe to give you “Go” signals. It is not just about your personal will. You are in relationship with the Universe and need to know your steps are aligned.
This is an important transition time for all of us. Stay grounded and connected these next several days and be ready to move forward.
I will be in Glastonbury England for the next 8 days, celebrating this shift and the Summer Solstice with my life partner Deborah. Next week’s Perspectives from the Sky will be written there. I pray we stay on the left side of the road this coming week, lol.
