We are smack dab in the middle of Winter Eclipse Season 2018. Last week was the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo. The week after this one, on February 15, is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.
We are always taken out of the same-old, same-old patterns of thought, emotions, or behavior patterns during Eclipse Seasons, and this one is no different.
As we are taken out of our normal patterns, we are on our toes and ready to meet the challenges and changes.
In the greater world the stock market downfall began last week. This will continue. Now it is possible and even likely that there will be gasps of manic energy reviving the stock climb, but it will be short lived as the overall direction is downward now, as we have stated before.
Before the end of the year, the value of stocks will be much less and the true condition of the economy will be more evident. This is the beginning of the transformation of the Military/Economic Complex that runs the USA and much of the world.
This transformation will accelerate from 2018-2022, as at the same time the Age of Aquarius will be having its buds pushing through the branches of our world.
The Aquarius emphasis of the Eclipse Season will get even stronger as we move through the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon on February 15.
That means that collective community efforts will get more powerful, and the push by Inspector Mueller to investigate the Trump administration will get more powerful too. Notions of impeachment will become more than just notions.
The distraction of the FBI Memo will not stop the impeachment train from chugging forward.
So there are two collective efforts now, one more pushed by Democrats toward possible impeachment, and one more pushed by Republicans toward discrediting Clinton, Obama and Democrats for being in collusion with the FBI against Trump.
This is an extension of the culture wars that became more evident during the last Eclipse Season with Charlottesville.
And speaking of the connections between last eclipse season and this one, the North Korea issue is still red hot even though North and South Korea are having a peaceful get together at the Winter Olympics.
In my estimation the Trump administration is planning a hit on North Korea this year if North Korea does not promise to begin dismantling their nuclear program. And it is not likely that North Korea will do so.
And keep an eye on the Middle East this Eclipse Season also, as the Trump decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not felt the full vehemence against that decision yet.
The Me-Too movement, getting further mileage with the convictions against Larry Nasser for sexually abusing so many young girls, is not done yet by a long shot.
Any group missions you have now, or socially conscious groups you plan on joining forces with, will have the winds of the Universe blowing at your back for forward movement.
Sometimes during these Eclipse Seasons events happen that seem to be taking one backward and into negative places.
From a bigger picture this is necessary in the process of transformation, as more purging is needed of old attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being from the past.
One’s demons or ghosts from the past often need to be seen in the light of day in order to integrate those shadow parts of self in a more constructively holistic manner. Demons locked in closets are ultimately much more dangerous.
But if you keep seeing your life from “glass half-full” viewpoints, you will see the synchronicities, feel the magic, and know the Universe is talking to you.
When you recognize the Universe is speaking to you with its signs, symbols, and guide posts; you will then be more able to act in accordance with the Universe, using your intentions to co-create your life.
This is why it is important to not be controlled by the programmed world paradigm. That programming tends to keep us locked in fear, not truly able to recognize the Universe/the Gods/God/Goddess/spirit/soul/spirit guides/angels (or whatever your belief system calls it) talking to you to help you on your path.
You are never alone, though sometimes it feels one has been abandoned by the God-force. That is when we have dark nights of the soul that make us feel so alone without meaning.
We live in a meaningful Universe, helping us to evolve and contribute to the world and human family on our sacred Earth.
If you see through the eyes of the old paradigm, you see everything that happens as random, run by good or bad luck. And you will hear in the background of your mind mental tapes of “Us versus Them”, good guys versus bad guys, male against female, dark versus light, Judeo/Christian versus Muslim, hetero versus homo, etc.
Yes we have opposites but they are connected at a deep level and though they may butt heads sometimes, they are together as One.
Nothing can truly unglue the circle of wholeness, except us in our own minds and hearts. The Moon stays round, the Sun shines, Earth keeps alive no matter what we think or do.
But we can self destruct and eliminate ourselves. And that happens if we hate ourselves or others.
We are complicated as humans, not good or bad, just what we are. We can make the best of what we are and what we have been given; or we can judge and separate our selves as good or evil. That battle will destroy us as we will hate a part of ourselves that we judge as bad or good.
And do you not think it is revealing that every side thinks it is the good ones and those they oppose are the bad or evil ones. North Korea and Iran demonize us and we demonize them. Is one right and the other wrong? Or are both victims of an old paradigm that separates by demonization, and then seeks to destroy the “bad guys”.
Once Germany and Japan were the evil ones and now they are good because they are on our side now.
Lets wake up now and know we are all one, with many different faces: Equal in the eyes of the Universe- creating Diversity Within Unity. Age of Aquarius.
Till next week and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius
