Happy Rapture Day! Not sure exactly what to do, but I guess doing this blog will be OK, unless I say the wrong thing, which this being Judgment Day and all could get me in really big trouble.
And I know the fundamentalist god will strike me down for this, but I say F’ that old world god, and I judge him to be too judgmental and know he will be dying along with the Old Age and good riddance.
It is appropriate, that as we have entered the Eclipse season of spring/summer 2011, that there is a Rapture/Judgment Day warning. As nothing happens we wave goodbye to another dyfunctional and toxic piece of the Old Age paradigm. That old god, who quite closely resembles Saturn, the god of the patriarchial laws and rules, no longer can run our world as it moves quite rapidly into a new Aquarian Age.
That Saturnian god is the god of the old religions, not a god of compassion and love, but a god of guilt and rules and regulations. No wonder there are so many atheists now, as they have become atheists because they reject the spiritually void god that was presented to them in their formative years.
But many of you who read this blog have successfully transformed beyond that old god, and as you found a way around his wall of control, you then found the fresh air of true spirituality, of connection to Universal love and truth, free minds, hearts and souls.
And for those of you who found this path, it is now time to get on the fast track. Time is accelerating it seems, and changes are wanting to happen faster. Breakthroughs happen faster now in this eclipse season, which we are already in, even though the first official eclipse will happen on June 1, a Solar Eclipse New Moon at 11+ degrees of Gemini. It is really time now to trust your Authentic Self and the Universe, to move forward into a new season of your life. You are being renewed during this eclipse season.
But watch the Middle East now, especially Israel and Palestine, as this center of old world religions begins to burn. Those of you who have been healing and transforming out of old world programming know that there is a way to always make things work, to find solution, to find open doors, to make relationship and meaningful connection.
But not there in Israel and much of the Middle East. People do not budge, do not make relationship. They worship their old world god who will have nothing to do with any one else’s god. They hate one another and seek revenge. How spiritual is that?
So the revolutions in Egypt and other parts of North Africa, the Middle East and Arab world, are setting the table for the explosions in Israel and Palestine. These people and their holy books and gods have predicted apocalypse, and they are moving toward their self-fulfilling prophecy. It is the climax of the end of the old age.
Those who have transformed beyond this insanity will be living totally different lives. Stay on your path, watch the signs and synchronicties that light your way. You will be guided if you keep your inner eyes and ears open. You will meet the right people and be in the right places. Love and Truth are your Gods, light and dark, yin and yang, all connected as ONE.
The last quarter moon, which precedes the coming Solar Eclipse on June 1, is this Tuesday May 24. This last quarter moon is in Pisces. There may be some good byes and grief in this last quarter, as the next three major lunations are all eclipses and life will then move faster forward. Let go of the past now, even if it is painful. Always when the new seasons of a life begin, there is sadness of days gone by, of how it used to be.
As the Moon goes into Aries on Friday May 27 we begin to take action, on the way to the June 1 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini.
Gemini brings a faster mind and more rapid communication and a more active nervous system. It is ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the gods. So stay alert more than usual for the signs and symbols delivered by the Universe. The Sun has moved into Gemini today (Saturday) and will be joined exactly by the Moon on June 1, which forms the New Moon then.
After that New Moon Eclipse Gemini energies will get extremely strong. There may be a tendency to get scattered with these energies, so work to stay grounded and centered around the 1st of June and throughout the eclipse period, which will be felt through July at least. The greatest intensity, however, will be from May 27 through July 15.
If you have planets around 11 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces you will be most affected.
The second eclipse, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is on June 15 at 24 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have planets close to 24 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces you will be most affected.
The last eclipse is at 9 degrees of Cancer. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon formed into a Grand Cross of cardinal signs with Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus. It is enormously powerful, and affects people with planets from 2-12 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn most especially.
There will likely be very big world events that shake up our greater world during this eclipse season.
In your personal life, there will be changes that shake up your status quo, but they are changes your soul is ready for. Do your best to recognize that which is ripe to be let go of, and that which is ready to be embraced.
Next week’s forecast will be for the week of the first eclipse on June, so stay tuned.
