Spring Eclipse Season is over. The Cardinal Grand Cross is passing. Mercury has now gone back direct. Clarity and Direction are forming.
We have moved into a new chapter or season of both our individual and collective lives. The Cancer lunar cycle we are moving through now suggests we gather with “family”, whatever that means for each of us; find ways to relax and nurture ourselves, as we take somewhat of a break from needing to push our selves or any agenda too much.
We are settling into our souls, reconnecting with our hearts, and finding our equilibrium. We are integrating all the changes of the last few months into our consciousness and making whole our inner family of various facets of our soul.
This process will generally continue till mid to late July. It is then we will begin to hear the clarion call to raise our flags of evolutionary progress and move forward.
On July 16 Jupiter leaves the womb of Cancer, where it has been contained for the last year, and begins to open up more to the creative heart light shining in Leo.
The message to get started again will get stronger after July 20, when Saturn the planetary hand of time goes back Direct again. And then on July 22 we leave our inner caves even more as the Sun moves into Leo.
And then on July 25 Mars finally leaves peace and pleasant loving Libra, after being there since December 2013, for the intensity and passion of Scorpio.
And on July 26 the Leo New Moon conjunct Jupiter will finish the job of launching us more fully forward into this new chapter of our soul’s journey.
This late July time period is a turning point forward after all the change and shakeup that began this last March 2014.
Many have had major breakdowns of their old lives since then. Others have had major breakthroughs and awakenings during that time. And some have had both breakdowns and breakthroughs.
Sometimes it seems everything will always stay the same, same-old forever. Then those old lives are shaken up in one way or another as we are ready to go to another level or to enter a new season of our lives.
We each do have much creative input into our lives, especially if we want to take our authentic talents and fill a need in our world. The Universe will support that intent. And during times of great shakeup, walls break down and doors open to bring us closer to our soul’s intentions.
This may not always happen in the way we planned, but it will happen.
This is why meditation or other spiritual practices are so important, as they keep us connected to our soul intention. When disconnected, we make choices that are against our soul’s intentions.
Othertimes we try to hold on too long to something or someone we need to let go of, against our soul’s intentions to move forward.
Othertimes the programming we received from our society and family or the traumas we experienced earlier in our lives control our soul intentions and make us fearful of life and its changes.
And each time now that we enter an Eclipse Season or another important planetary time period, we are shaken out of our stuck places and helped to move into our soul’s path and our evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius,
The greater world now is on the verge of great shakeup, a shakeup that intends to eventually open more doors into the New World and Age.
You can see the borders and boundaries of that Old World coming down. Keep in mind that the boundaries we have created for countries in our world have been contrived, and most have been set through wars and invasions, and through World Powers at the time setting the boundaries for their own interests.
This is especially true in the Middle East, where most of our religions and civilizations were started. Modern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, etc. were created in the 20th century and manipulated by colonial powers. Invasions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya were done to control those peoples’ fates in compliance with others’ needs.
And now as this group called ISIS is changing Middle East borders, as the USA borders are challenged by immigrants coming from Central America and Mexico; chaos is ensuing.
And borders will continue to be challenged, more and more so-called civil wars will break out, like in Ukraine.
At the same time forceful efforts to keep order will get more dominating. Chaos versus Order will be a prevailing theme now. Chaos seeks a break down of the old. Order seeks a preservation of the old.
In your own life, when things break down, your old order is breaking down, and your efforts to keep order are your understandable desires for security and stability.
How much needs to change and how much you can keep things the same is determined in the process between chaos and order.
Chaos brings creative change; Order seeks to keep stability. Neither is the good one or bad one. They work together during changing times.
The Old Rules, the old school ways are also being challenged now as we move more fully into our internet/computer age. New Rules are born, new ways of thinking and being are created.
Some of the old ways you will be relieved are leaving, hopefully desires for power and greed and violent ways. But some old ways you will not want to change, like human dignity, human caring and intimate contact between peoples.
Are we OK with new ways to have children, to clone or to use stem cells? And if so, can we keep connected to our Earth and her needs, to nature, to our bodies and souls and their needs?
Can we work with Climate Change in a way that is healing for nature and our environment? Can we learn to live in peace with one another, respecting the ways of those who are different from us.
How this Chaos versus Order transition time plays out is within our ability to vision and create. What are our priorities, and how much do we truly care about the future of the Earth, its creatures and our children and grandchildren?
Do we truly believe we can evolve in our consciousness and lives to meet the needs of the Age of Aquarius we are moving into?
The coming changes will be great. See them either in your own life or in the greater world as opportunities to evolve and make changes that will serve the best potential of our selves and the world.
This coming week we are moving up to a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn next Saturday July 13 at 7:25 AM EDT. Keep to your intentions for nurturance, inner integration, and family connections.
But the Moon is in Capricorn for that Full Moon, so begin also to get prepared for more outer manifestation then. But realize also that when you are ready to more fully leave your cave later this month, that you will want to keep intention for meditation, nurturing, and connection to “Feminine” values. If you go back to just being concerned with obligations and accomplishments and “doing all the time” instead of “just being”, then you will not have the proper foundation for this new chapter of your life.
This week the Sun is triggering the now passing Grand Cross from April as it makes aspect to Pluto and Uranus. Events will continue to be heated in the Middle East.
If you are still “holding on”, you will get a nudge to let go this week.
See you next week,
