We are now in the last quarter moon phase of the lunar cycle that began on May 9. That lunar cycle began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus. Following that was the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, which was the last eclipse of 3, of the 2013 Spring Eclipse Season that began in early April.
Spring Eclipse Season 2013 effectively ends at the New Moon in Gemini on June 8 this coming week. At the same time the Eclipse Season ends, there is a New Moon, so we begin a new cycle.
This new cycle will be quite powerful, I believe, as it will trigger events connected to the passing Eclipse Season. What happens around this New Moon in Gemini, and lasting until the next New Moon on July 8, which is in Cancer- is important.
That is because a new chapter in our lives begins, a new chapter that results largely from what got shaken up during the passing Eclipse Season.
Many people experienced breakdowns and/or breakthroughs in their relationships, careers, families, or mental outlooks or beliefs. As things shifted out of the old predictable behaviors and mindsets, new ways of thinking and being have been sought and taken up in some cases.
Many are still “picking up the pieces” and/or looking over the changed landscape of their lives. Take a look at your life and/or your attitudes now in comparison to what it was in March or early April.
For many much has shifted and changed. There may be a new way now of seeing your self, seeing others, or seeing your life. It may be time to make a more firm commitment to something or someone, or on the contrary a need to release and let go of that which no longer is right for you.
Whatever has been shifting and changing will be ready to break loose after this New Moon in Gemini. Things will open up more and events that are a direct result of the shifts during this Eclipse Season will begin to show.
It will be time to move forward into this new chapter of life, and the events that manifest will show us the way forward. That which has kept on hold will shake loose and in some cases will open Pandora’s Box of possibilities.
What is important now is to set priorities and make intention. Then after that let the Universe show you the way, as it brings you some results from what transpired during the Eclipse Season.
Since as this next New Moon is in Gemini, there may be a lot of new ideas and possibilities, opening up of minds, new interests, and a need to make communication a top priority. The Gemini New Moon on June 8 also brings more activity, and with all this activity and ideas and fast moving minds and talking, there can be a tendency toward being more scattered and anxious.
So do your best to stay grounded and centered and focused on the task at hand. In fact finding focus may be very important as we approach and go through the New Moon in Gemini, especially so because Neptune will be strongly emphasized around the New Moon.
Mystical inner directed Neptune changes directions and squares Mars the day before the New Moon, on June 7. So some will be overwhelmed by the influx of a confusing array of possibilities. Others, who let go and surrender, may find more magic and spiritual connection at that time.
In the greater world the New Moon in Gemini is poised to begin a time period of powerful world events. These world events will be the result of what has been revealed and developing during the Eclipse Season.
We have been reminded again of just how much our climate has been changing with more and more unusual and dramatic weather events, as has been shown during the Eclipse Season with the devastating tornadoes. Climate change is real. You can debate how much we humans are contributing to the change, but it is obvious something big is shifting.
And there is no debate how much our corporate and government power structures are dominating our lives. As an example Monsanto is answering to no one in regards to how their products are making our world more toxic. Big Government also is intruding more and more into our lives and our freedoms, lying to us, covering up the truth, and making corruption a normal way of doing business.
And perhaps most dangerous of all is the mess happening in the Middle East, right now surrounding the war in Syria. This war threatens to become a wider regional war, and even a world war. The self serving attitudes of all concerned precludes finding true peace and resolution. So many countries are swarming Syria, waiting for personal spoils and more power and control of the region.
Resentments are deep, desires to listen to the needs of others almost non existent. This Middle East region, where many of the world’s major religions and civilizations began, is a reflection of the dying old world. Religions and cultures are separate and in conflict, not seeing what connects us all, not knowing we are all members of the same Human Family on Earth.
Each out for itself, not trusting others, not truly trusting the Universe (God) as a place of connection and Unity. Self fulfilling prophecy is playing out, greater war is on the horizon. That toxic cell in our collective human body, so well represented in the Middle East, must be eradicated like a cancer, as new healthy cells are ready to be born. Do your best not to invest your energy and emotion into who “wins and loses” in Syria and the Middle East. It is old attitudes and belief systems that need to be defeated and released. If you attach you will be engulfed with those same emotions of fear, hatred and revenge. Let it go and stay on your spiritual path.
Keep in mind that the world economy is also in need of transforming into one built with the foundation of sharing the Earth’s bounty. Greed and dog eat dog competition are destroying so many of this world’s residents. New ways must be found for our children and children’s children. They will as we enter the Age of Aquarius.
So these next two lunar cycles, which will last from June 8 to August 6, will flesh out much of what this next chapter in our personal and collective lives will be like. We will know more clearly what direction we are moving in and what are our new priorities.
No matter how it may look at times in the greater world, there is a powerful movement toward this New Age. Look closely at your children to see the evolution of our species. Give them structure, love, and guidance, but resist teaching them to be just like you or how you judge they should be.
Remember how your parents did that to you? You may think it is different the way you do that to them because your values and enlightenment is superior to your parents. Nature, the Universe is evolving consciousness with each new generation. They have in their hearts and DNA a script that is more aligned to the future than you.
This does not mean to be permissive and overly lenient with them. They need discipline and rules and boundaries and a sense of civility and being relational. But they do not need to be judged, dominated, and programmed. They have much to teach us if we listen. They are the Aquarian Age, knowing in their souls of equality, Love and Truth, and Diversity in Unity.
They carry a mold of how humans can be respectful and caring of one another, honoring of individuality and authenticity. If we do not try to make them just like us, or to fit into some family tradition or role, or to be some American robot who is fueled more by patriotism than universal connection, then they will better lead our world into the Age of Aquarius.
