The winter of 2010/2011 is almost over. It has brought with it such a powerful season of change and transformation.
The Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice of 2010 gave us a signature of great transformation for the winter season. We let you know that that winter solstice signature foretold that the winter season ahead would bring big events that would greatly change our lives on this Earth.
The powerful revolutionary movements in the Middle East and the huge earthquake-tsunami in Japan have fullfilled that forecast.
Our lives are shifting in big ways. In literal fact, Japan has moved 8 feet and the Earth has appreciably moved on its axis. And of course more to the point, our human consciousness and lives are rapidly changing in alignment with the Universe’s accelerated transformation into an Aquarian Age.
And we will not get time to rest from the rapid changes. The spring and summer of 2011 promise more great changes, changes as great as the ones we have experienced in the winter of 2010/2011.
The summer of 2010 started our most recent bout of transformation with the Grand Cross Lunar Eclipse on July 26 and the cardinal t-square in late July/August. We let you know prior to this winter that 2010’s aspects were meant to take us out of our comfort zones and shake up our status quo lives, but would not push us fully yet into new phases of our lives.
2011 will do just that. And in spring and summer 2011 we face a Universal rhythym that will widely open doors into new realms of experience.
Those of you who were alive to experience the ’60s and 70’s remember how fast change swirled around us. The closed stability of the ’50s broke open and broke down and huge waves of change burst into our lives. A horrible war raged and people took to the streets enraged at the corruption and hypocricy of our leaders and the lack of fairness in the world. There was such progress as human rights opened up for women, blacks, and others. An unjust war was ended and a criminal USA president resigned from office. Fashions and hair styles changes drastically, a whole new culture and way of thinking and living was born. People woke up and acted to change the world.
And now in Egypt and Libya and Tunisia and other parts of the world, another new awakening is beginning. Old corrupt unjust ways are breaking down again. People are beginning to rise up again. Just treatment for our gay brothers and sisters has been opening up and will accelerate more and more. Marriage rights are on the horizon.
Of course you can see that there is a huge backlash to the opening of great transformational change in our human community on the Earth. People who want to keep the status quo are getting more ferocious to hold the line and keep the doors of change closed. The leaders and militaries in the Middle East are trying to keep everything just as it used to be.
The resistance seems as strong as the power of change. Conservative movements in the USA are speaking louder and louder. In Wisconsin and other states there are attempts by state and local governments to take away the rights of workers and unions. Power to the people seems to be eroding.
And make no mistake about it the damns of resistance to change in this world will continue to build strength. But the tsunami tides of change cannot ultimately be stopped. The power of nature has been witnessed in Japan. The power of the cycles of change in the Universe cannot be stopped by any government or military.
And on the day of the huge earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Uranus was finishing up its 7 year stay in oceanic Pisces- and later that day entered spring-time Aries, where it will be for the next 7 years. And soon that same Uranus will square Pluto, making their first major aspect to one another since their conjunction in 1965-66, the aspect that brought on the ’60s revolution.
Uranus in Aries will be almost exactly square Pluto, within a most powerful aspect, on July 1 this summer. There will then be a Solar Eclipse New Moon Cardinal Grand Cross in Cancer that day. The Sun, Moon, Uranus, Pluto, and Saturn will be parts of that grand cross. It will be more powerful than the Grand Cross of 2010 as all planets in the cross this time will be in cardinal signs. We will be forcefully entering a grand new season of our lives here on planet Earth.
It may seem that Grand Cross formations that are part of eclipses are common, as two summers in a row we are experiencing these formations. But trust me they are very rare. And having a lunar eclipse on a winter solstice, as we did winter solstice of 2010, is also very rare. And also uncommon is the fact that this spring, before the Solar Eclipse Grand Cross, there will be two more eclipses. We will be having three in a row- one on June 1, another on June 15, and the third one on July 1. All these rare astrological occurrences, happening one after another, in the context of the changing of ages, is why we are experiencing such monumental transformation.
Put on your seat belts. The ride of great changes has only just begun.
Spring and summer of 2011 bring much more. There will be more great changes coming from nature’s power, more drastic change in the Middle East, greater changes here at home in the USA, and changes in our personal lives.
It is most important now in your personal life to be flexible and open to change. Stay connected to your center, to your “voice” inside. Watch for signs ans symbols that are guideposts on your soul’s path. Look for synchronicities that are the Universe’s way of getting your attention so you will wake up and question and investigate new possiblities. Do not hold on too tight to anything. Let go of possessions, beliefs, old patterns and attitudes that have outworn their time. They may be helping you feel more secure, but they are holding you back. Let them go.
Let go also of old judgments that keep you separate and at a distance from the unity consciousness you desire. Remember that all is connected to the whole. Even the conservative attitudes that feel so restrictive to you are part of the whole. They slow down the progress, but hold back the chaos as well. They cannot hold back the tide of change for long- they are not to feared or hated.
Tonight we turn the clocks ahead in America, bringing the feeling of more light in our lives. Spring is less than two weeks away. It begins on March 20 at 7:21 PM EDT. It begins another season of great transformational change.
Don’t be afraid of the change, as horrible as it appears sometimes, like in the earthquake. Remember, if you stay centered and aligned, you will be in the right place at the right time to fullfill your personal destiny, the reason you incarnated.
See you next week,
