Early today we passed through a New Moon in Taurus. Mars went Direct over a week ago, but had been moving very slowly forward. It is now near normal speed, and with the New Moon beginning a new lunar cycle, we are ready to engage life more fully.
And some may even feel as if the Eclipse Season has begun. For them the winds of change are already blowing in.
Gemini and Sagittarius are the approaching signs of the Eclipse Season, so mental, communicative, and spirited channels will want to open up. Though Taurus energies aim to keep us grounded for now, the vast possibilities that Gemini and Sagittarius represent are bulging at the seams, getting ready to explode into our lives, consciousness, and world.
Do you already know what action and events are coming into your life in May, June, and July? It is likely even more important and life altering than you know.
Are you still waiting to know? Are you still searching for clarity and direction? That is OK, as it has not been that long yet since Mars has gone direct. Some may not know yet what they really want or what they want to do or where they want to go. Some may not know until after Mars has reached the same place that it went retrograde, 23 degrees of Virgo. It will get back to that place on June 19, just after the eclipses and just before the Summer Solstice and powerful Uranus square Pluto aspect.
The most valuable stance to take now is one of flexibility and trust. Try not to control too much or to believe you know all the answers. Life is going to open up in a big way soon, and if we can each be open to the possibilities, not the eventual outcome, we will be in the best place inside ourselves.
This is because much will be shifting and shaking up, as we are moving into a highly transformational period of our collective lives.
Leaders of the world are and will be trying hard to keep the status quo, to keep stability, to keep us believing that the old paradigm of predictable results will be maintained. Remember that the greater world’s god is the economy. Keeping it stable and predictable is what keeps the world as we know it now intact. That is one reason why so-called rogue nations like North Korea and Iran cannot be tolerated, why Iraq and Saddam Hussein could not be tolerated.
It is because they represent forces that will not be controlled by the current powers of the world, and their “instability,” rebellion, and unpredictablity are seen as threatening to the staus quo of the world and its economy.
And of course oil, which is from fossils of our past sunk deep into the Earth, is a prime resource that is tied into the global economy and chances for global war. And Iran is now in the crosshairs of the current powers of the world, as it controls much oil and can potentially control the passage of much oil supply through the Straits of Hormuz, adjacent to its borders.
This fossil fuel is so tied to our human past, and to the old paradigm of survival of the fittest that our creature natures resonate to. But our divine nature resonates better to unity and cooperation.
So now the solution is found in a merging of the two faces of humanity: creature and divine. That integration gives us our next step in evolution.
Our survival creature nature knows its survival now is dependent on its ability to find unity as one family together all over the Earth. The weapons of mass destruction we have built, in combination with a continued sense of separation from our fellow human being, Earth and other creatures, guarantees an eventual bad ending to our existence on Earth. The fossils from the extinct creatures of Earth remind us that we must change our ways and evolve.
And evolution now is the combining of our divine knowing of Unity with our creature instinct of survival urgency.
We must band together all over the Earth as one unified family in order to survive now. The Aquarian Age we are on the cusp of is about Diversity in Unity, so an acceptance and sense of Unity of all God’s and Goddesss’ creatures, races, genders, creeds and sexual orientations will show us the way.
And the challenges coming our way will help us to let go of the old beliefs, paradigm, and age. Some of what is coming will not be pretty and in fact could be quite chaotic and destructive; but it is what will be necessary to break open and break down the walls of Rome, which suffocate the free wills, minds, souls and hearts of life.
So use the coming eclipses to break down the walls in your life and heart that keep you from your authentic self, and keep you from connecting with the fresh spiritual air of the Universe and its signs, symbols, synchronicities and connections.
The coming times will be the best of times and the worst of times all at the same time. We open more to all it is to be human, both dark and light.
It is NOT our natural plight to fight the dark forces and kill the enemy. It is our natural movement now, in conjunction with our evolution into an Aquarian Age to be whole and integrated, dark and light, yin and yang, male and female, all together as one.
The “enemies” are inside us, they are our shadows, shadows that seek to be known and seen, healed and transformed, integrated into the Oneness of each of us, each of us who is a micro cell in the macro Universe: I AM ALL.
