The eclipse season is up and running now, as we are past the first eclipse and this Monday May 28 we will be half way to the second one, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on June 4.
Each time we move through powerful planetary movements, as we are now in the late spring 2012; another big chink is made in the armor of the Old Paradigm’s world.
Events bring to the surface issues that need to be addressed, issues that reflect our collective need to transform toxic patterns and beliefs that do not serve us anymore.
In the greater world, Iran is being singled out as a threat to the Old Paradigm’s control. There was a meeting on May 23 this past week to resolve the outstanding Iranian nuclear issues, with no sign of a breakthrough. There is a new meeting scheduled for June 18-19. Remenber that eclipse seasons usually give us breakdowns or breakthroughs, so soon we will know which way that goes. World oil prices, the global economy, and geopolitical military issues are at stake.
In the global economy, news out this past week shows potential big trouble in Greece with its continuation in the European Union. If they leave, that will greatly affect the global economy.
In Egypt, which was a powerful player in the Arab Spring liberation movement in 2011, they had their first real democratic presidential election ever this past week. Results are still not final, but it looks as if one of the Old Guard’s leaders will be in a runoff election on June 16-17 with the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate. Egypt and much of the world will be greatly affected by the results. If the Old Guard Leader wins, revolution will break out again in Egypt. If the Muslim Brotherhood candidate wins, an Islamic world domination of the Middle East will occur, which will move Egypt away from the western world powers’ control. Israel will be greatly affected also.
So that Perfect Storm we suggested would build in the Eclipse Season is truly building. How strong it gets remains to be seen.
We wrote to you also in earlier posts that June 19 to June 28 would be the time frame for the end of the Eclipse Season and the beginning of a new chapter in all of our lives would follow that time period.
I believe then we will have much better knowledge of Iran, the global economy, the Middle East, and the big shift of our world from an old Pisces Age and Paradigm to a New Aquarian Age Paradigm.
In your own life whatever has been shaking up and getting your notice, will continue to develop and want to work itself out soon.
Next week will be the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius and some form or feeling of revelation or culmination will unfold. Recent information or messages or signs will be challenged to find resolution or meaning or inspiration. Spirits will be raised higher, seeking new projects or adventures to be starting soon.
But first, this coming week we meet the half way point between the two eclipses, a beginning second quarter Moon in Virgo this Monday May 28. With the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Virgo, energies will centered in our minds and nervous systems. There will be a tendency to want to “figure it all out” and some will need to resist the pull into obsessive compulsive thinking and high anxiety.
Do your best to “let it go” and be patient. Overall we need to trust more and more the process, and not jump to conclusions too fast.
Many people may be feeling quite differently in their bodies now in thisw eclipse season, but resist the temptation to pathologize and find something wrong with your self. Sometimes these new energies are trying to move through us and they find resistance in our bodies. Later these energies will pass and so will whatever bodily ailment that has developed. These are times to release, not hold.
So let go and release what needs to be released, so new and healthier states and patterns can be formed.
Remember also that Venus will remain retrograde until June 27, so relationships issues are in the spotlight, relationships of all types, not only romantic ones.
People from the past and issues and patterns from the past may return. Do not let your self believe that all your progress was in vain. Sometimes we need to revisit old ways and people to compare and to further release where we have been in previous cycles and seasons of our lives.
You are best not to return to the old relationship or old ways that you used to relate. There is a need to trust the Universe, life and your self, to bring to you what is best for you and your soul. It is not always the script we have convinced ourselves is best for us. It is not usually the script our family or society has programmed us to believe is best for us.
The nuclear family dominance is fading from our lives and for many is already in the rear view mirror. New families and communities are and will be forming, ones that are not based solely on blood relations and simple biology. Bio-genetics, stem cell research, many new ways to give birth, gay and lesbian families, adoptions, and safer birth controls are revolutionizing our world.
Great thrusts forward in technology and social networking are transforming our world community and are so in line and aligned with Aquarian principles.
One of our most pressing needs now is to integrate this technological revolution that has been tranforming our human community for over 20 years now, with healing our Earth and environment, and staying present, aware and grounded in our human psyches, emotions, and relationships.
We need also to learn more about how to use alternative energy, work better with climate change, connect more compassionately and tolerantly with those who are different and have different lifestyles than us.
We have so much to do to transform our world to be aligned with the Aquarian Age energies and patterns that are straining to find doors and windows to move through into our consciousness and lives.
Use this eclipse season to transform your own life more aligned with the New Paradigm that is forming. Release your old mental tapes, heal the blocks and wounds to your heart, and come more deeply into your soul. Let your free mind awaken, liberate your spirit, and trust the waves of change to bring you to a more authentic and healthy life. You are here for a reason on this Earth, living a life of meaning and purpose, connected to the Universe and your human community.
