Last week we expressed to you we felt something big was coming. Well last week so much felt big: Israel attacked from Syria and retaliated; North Korea and South Korea in a dangerous war posture; but mostly the serious downturn of the stock market- down over 1000 points for the week, and with China’s market crashing the world economy is in a precarious position. I believe these big events are still not the biggest we will face. There is more to come.
You know this is only the very beginning of the Eclipse Season of late summer and early autumn 2015. As we let you know last week the New Moon in Leo on August 14 brought in the early winds of change from the Eclipse Season.
There is much more transformational change on the way this late summer and autumn. There is still Venus Retrograde until September 6.
The current crisis between North and South Korea is happening during Venus Retrograde. it is a relationship between two halves of the old whole of Korea. It is almost like they are twin flames.
North and South Korea split and went to war in the early 1950’s. That split and war was part of the cold war between the USA and Russia. Russia backed North Korea and the USA backed South Korea. At the end of the war a truce was made but not a peace settlement. Technically North and South Korea are at war. Their split is very much a result of interference from world powers.
This Venus Retrograde meeting, as the winds of the Eclipse Season begin to blow in, may be pushing the Koreas to a place where they will need to either move closer to peace now or a war. Eventually they may unite again.
If there is a war there it might mean that the powers of China, Russia, and the USA get involved. Let us hope not.
The problems with Israel and Syria now are reflective of issues with Iran as Iran is Syria’s sponsor and ally. You can see how what happens there will also be important for the whole world as some world countries like the USA have allegiance to Israel and others like Russia have allegiance to Iran and Syria.
The economy is very global now and interconnected as you can see how what has been happening in China (the world’s 2nd largest economy next to the USA) is affecting Wall Street and economies all over the world.
How this Eclipse Season plays out is very important to how the world will transform into the Age of Aquarius.
All each of us can do is to enter and stay in consciousness that is connected to love and truth, to healing our Earth, its creatures and the human family.
Each of us is not perfect and will make mistakes, but it is so important that we keep our intention strong to be in our Higher Self even if we leave it sometimes.
The collective situation is dependent on where each of us is in our consciousness. No one of us can save the world from what it will go through, but we can each do our part and to join with others who feel the same.
We must each stop ourselves from tendencies to get revenge or to let our rage lead the way. Yes we must let ourselves feel anger enough to stay stop or no, but we do not need to let ourselves be consumed by hatred or deep animosity that will lead to serious conflict.
This is a turning point for humanity and what each of us feels and does is very important now.
This week, as we have just passed through the beginning of the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began last week at the New Moon in Leo; we now are headed toward the Full Moon.
That Full Moon will be next Saturday the 29th of August. It will have the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces. It will be at 2:35 PM EDT and it will have Jupiter conjunct the Sun in Virgo and Neptune conjunct the Moon in Pisces.
This is normally a very gentle Full Moon, and with Neptune as part of its signature that should keep it is relatively gentle and speaks to more peaceful energies. Jupiter is much more spirited but in Virgo it does speak to violence.
The only wild card that day is that Mars will be quincuncx Pluto and that could represent some explosiveness. But it is not a major planetary configuration.
But the down and yin movement of Virgo and Pisces do speak to the possibility that markets will still be headed downward. If they do for some reason level off or move upward this week, then we can still expect more downward movement during the eclipses and Autumn season.
On Sunday the 23rd the Sun goes into Virgo for a month’s stay. Time to begin to be more humble, simple and real. Order is needed more now and hard work is aligned with the planets. Be careful not to get too skeptical or even cynical now. Moon in Sagittarius should help you stay positive for a couple of days.
Late Monday into early Thursday, as the Sun will be in Virgo and Moon in Capricorn, it is time sober up, get organized and down to work. Whatever has been boiling over will begin to settle in a bit into more reason.
Virgo is the last month of Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere and it represents the motivation to get ready for the autumn and a downturn of energies. Though you will see the kids go back to the Virgo regimentation of school and you may feel more motivated to fix things up, get maintenance, checkups or healings; remember there is still time to enjoy what is left of summer.
After the Full Moon next Saturday, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle. We will be getting ourselves ready for the intensity of the first eclipse: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13.
Venus Retrograde is also coming into its last phase. On September 6, it will go back Direct- still in Leo. That means that relationship issues will still be in the spotlight of our lives, but the focus will be on finding solution and getting to the heart of the matter.
Old relationships need to heal or people need to move on from each other and Liberate one another. Hanging on is to the detriment of free spirit. Anger keeps people connected in a very dysfunctional manner.
New relationships will need to begin to get more real. As we get closer to the end of the Venus Retrograde cycle, we will start to feel more of a need to define these new relationships. But do your best not to jump to any conclusions either way. Wait for the Venus Retrograde cycle to play its way out.
Some of these relationships that just started around the Venus Retrograde time period are likely past life connections, as Venus Retrograde often suggests past relationships connected to past relationship patterns.
We are being given the opportunity to reexamine our relationship patterns so we can heal and transform them. That will help us to have better relationships with our current partners or friends or to be more prepared for future relationships.
I know things have not been easy lately for so many of us. Our issues are being thrown into our faces. Please do your best to stay centered in the knowledge that all is happening for a reason and that love and truth govern our Universe.
Hate and revenge are the old world and the Old Testament, and keeping that paradigm as a guiding star keeps the old world alive. Hate and revenge hurt us more than they hurt others as our bodies and souls are stressed and decay with these toxic energies. Try to find and bring out the best in others no matter what. Or let them go completely if you cannot.
How we handle relationships tells us so much about the truth of who we are. Change your vibration and you will attract better people and situations into your life.
Till next week,
