We have passed through the gate of a New Moon in Leo from August 2. On August 18 that New Moon from August 2 will become Full- A Full Moon in Aquarius.
That will be an important Full Moon, as it begins a new Eclipse Season. That Full Moon in Aquarius blows in the first winds of change connected to the issues that will dominate our consciousness during this new Eclipse Season.
The first Eclipse will be on September 1. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.
The second and last Eclipse for this Eclipse Season will be on September 16. It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.
So we can expect another round of important and intense world events soon again. There will likely be a continuation of issues around police treatment of African Americans, and anger toward the police.
There will also likely be a continuation of terrorist events.
And of course the Presidential election process will intensify, though it seems hard to imagine it getting any more intense.
There will also likely be new world events that continue to shake up our reality and consciousness and help us to more greatly transform into the Age of Aquarius.
The economy and stock market could be vulnerable for change, especially so if interest rates are increased in September by the Federal Reserve. The really volatile Middle East could also be ripe for new eruptions. Also North Korea and China are getting more and more angry with neighboring countries, as well as western governments- especially the USA.
Turkey and Russia and their roles in Syria could also be in the spotlight. And of course events will likely erupt that will be complete surprises.
Just know that Eclipse Seasons accelerate the process of change and transformation in the world and in your personal life.
We have entered a big new chapter or season of our lives. The transition time has been from Spring 2014 to now. Look back at your life prior to Spring of 2014 and look at it now.
Look at the world prior to Spring 2014 and look at it now.
Islamic State was unheard of and Ferguson had not happened yet, whch triggered all the racial tensions. Russia had not invaded Ukraine and upset its relationship with the western world and Nato.
So now we are in an important new chapter of our collective and individual lives, a new chapter on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.
What still needs to transform in your life to make you aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius and also aligned with your own authentic higher self and its natural soul journey?
What is not aligned in your life now? Are your relationships healthy? Are your family connections other than dysfunctional? Are you in a career or job that is satisfying and aligned with your true self or are you there just to surive financially?
Do you have love in your life or are your relaionships just relationships out of habit?
Are you still controlled by old belief systems, and patterns of behavior that keep you stuck?
Do you feel like your life is a rerun every day, with “Groundhog Day” repeats?
Do you put up with relationship patterns that are so dysfunctional that they are not heart or feeling connected anymore? Do you just go through the motions without real connection?
Well, it is possible that the approaching Eclipse Season will break down some of these old ways and provide you with breakthroughs into new mindsets and ways.
In fact Eclipse Seasons usually do have breakdowns and breakthroughs, some small and sometimes rather large life changing ones.
Before we hit into Eclipse Season, however, we find ourselves in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Leo on August 2. That Moon continues to wax and grow until the Full Moon in Pisces on August 18, at which time it begins its waning half of the cycle.
This Leo New Moon lunar cycle wants us to get more into our hearts and creative expression. It beckons us to trust more and live from our spontaneous hearts and not so much from our calculating heads.
Have Leo fun this remaining summer, while it still lasts here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth.
The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1 will herald the call to get more into work and to create more order in our lives. But that’s almost a month away.
There are only minor aspects this week, until Saturday when Saturn goes from Retrograde to Direct.
Saturn is gravity, but also the Hand Of Time. So the clock of the Universe begins to tick again on Saturday.
You may feel or see events that seem rather fated around that date. Saturn gives a sense of greater definiton, of rules and regulations that need to be followed. It can make us also feel more secure, stable and grounded if not trapped and controlled.
Try to get a sense at around the Saturn turning of what new resolutions, intentions and commitments you want to make for your self and your life.
The Universal Hand of Time lets you know that time is limited and that you cannot keep putting off or procrastinating that which is important to you and your soul’s growth.
Till next week,
