I am leaving Italy today and feeling very fulfilled from this 17 day trip to Europe. As this voyage happened during Autumn Eclipse Season, with Mercury Retrograde, there has been a significant shift in consciousness and a re-connection with my ancestral lineage in Italy. Since the transformation of our global family will include big shifts in the power dynamics of the world, Western Civilization is feeling it’s effects.
Seeing the ancient buildings and long-time local traditions has brought a new awareness to my consciousness, as my American consciousness only knows 238 years of existence. Seeing alleys in Italy that have been used since before Christ helps me to know that people’s in the world value their heritage and take pride in their past and so love their land and culture.
The coming changes will not be easy. Many European countries are dealing with immigration from Africa and the Middle East, and trying to fit these very different cultures into their very ingrained traditional ways. And China, Russia, India, Brazil and other countries are getting stronger and stronger. And new global boundaries are being redrawn in the Middle East and elsewhere to shift our world into a New Age.
These lands I have been visiting are so beautiful and filled with such rich culture, and the future will have them learning to balance that rich culture with the tides of change into an Age of Aquarius. And those tides are increasing their strength now during the Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.
This last week the markets have been showing weakness, and this is only the beginning of the transformation of our global economy. Here in Europe, and I know elsewhere, many local economies are very dependent on tourism, as so much money is spent in stores and restaurants by tourists. It feels much like consumption by gluttony at times and shopping seems to be a very high priority for travelers.
As the markets dim and travelers’fear of terrorism and Ebola rises, money will stop flowing from tourism and local life in many communities will change dramatically.
We must all prepare our selves for radical change that will reconnect us to soulful human values.
All the personal and world events that have been swirling through our lives since the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year are setting the tables for more and greater transformation for our world and personal lives.
We have entered an important new chapter in our lives now, on the way to an Age of Aquarius. This Autumn Eclipse Season will be followed by a Spring Eclipse Season 2015.
These two seasons will bring big shifts to our world, and most especially to the child of Europe, America.
That is because the USA natal chart from July 4 1776 is being powerfully affected by these recent Eclipse Season.
While many are complaining about the lack of power shown by the USA in world events now, in the bigger picture the USA is beginning to join the world community in a whole new way, as more of an equal in a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.
We are now smack dab in the middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, between two eclipses and moving into the second half of this current Mercury Retrograde cycle.
On Wednesday the 15th this coming week, there will be a 4th quarter moon phase beginning with the Moon in Cancer.
It is time that day to get into one’s inner cave and to process the last few weeks. We are preparing for a strong Eclipse on October 23, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in passionate and intense Scorpio.
It will be time for new beginnings, and the inner depths of our collective beings will be ignited and brought more to the surface. Secrets, previously restrained emotions and memories will seek to be expressed and seen.
It will be time to speak one’s truth and let the process play itself out after that. Mercury will stay Retrograde till the 25th, so till then let your mind and soul process the recent shifts before coming to conclusions or making big decisions.
Next week when I am back we will look more deeply at Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and it’s influence on our lives.
