The buzz of intensity from April’s most powerful planetary movements may have lessened now, but please keep in mind that the Grand Cross, though weakened, is still intact this coming week.
We may feel like dusting ourselves off from the storm debris of April and moving on, but the aftermath and aftershocks are now a reality.
We have, however, crossed the bridge between chapters of our life, and we are on the other side- in our personal new worlds.
Whatever events will occur over the next several weeks will have a reference point to the shakeups of March and April 2014. They will be the result of what shifted during that time period.
Many people have been experiencing rather dramatic breakdowns of what was not working anymore, and/or breakthroughs out of stuck places and into new zones of consciousness, reality or behavior.
For some of you the changes may have been more subtle, but nevertheless your reality has been shifting in some way or other.
Collectively our human family has really been evolving at a core level the last couple of months, and the United States just began this last month what will be a very powerful transformation.
The energetic motivations to leave our status quo “normal” default internal positions have been most powerful. We are being pushed into new consciousness and new lives so that we can move in alignment with a human evolutionary leap needed now.
The force of light from an Age of Aquarius is strong and it is wanting to move through each of our consciousness’s and lives. Any blocks our consciousness or lives seek to maintain because of understandable needs to feel the security of familiarity, cannot last.
So of course there are breakdowns of that which cannot move forward as it is. But for some who were ready the breakthroughs have been fast and powerful and sometimes even feeling quite magical.
The Universe is blowing its winds at your back if you are ready for change. Issues that have previously seemed stuck beyond repair have recently found new pathways of resolution or liberation.
If instead you are still trying to fix your problems with the same old tried but not true efforts, the level of frustration and failure can become overwhelming.
There are solutions, but you must be willing to go outside your usual maze of patterns that keep your consciousness in a box.
Open up and trust your heart to lead the way. It may bring you more chaos and energies you find it difficult to control, but it will bring you to realignment with the Universe and your authentic soul Self. And you will feel more alive again.
There is still time now, before Mars goes Direct on May 19, to take care of your self and to get in touch with what you truly want and desire for your self. In relationships the balance between your needs and desires and what your partner or friend may want or desire can be found before Mars goes back Direct. Mars retrograde for a couple more weeks can also give you a reality check on your personal will and how that affects others. And of course yours or others’ anger issues can also be looked at more deeply during the Mars Retrograde period.
After May 19 there should be a feeling of being more ready to move forward in new ways, new ways that are aligned with this new chapter in your life.
In the greater world, the conflict in Ukraine; the “peace” process between Israel and Palestine; the conflict in Syria, and the meetings being held with Iran over its nuclear issues were all stirred up during the Eclipse Season. Issues with North Korea and conflicts between China and Japan/South Korea/Phillipines over territory were also exacerbated this last month.
Racial issues were also stirred up more with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and with Clive Bundy, while anti government issues were stirred up over grazing land for that same Clive Bundy in Nevada.
And very importantly, Benghazi has moved back front and center in the news as a previously unknown email was revealed. That email suggests that the government was lying about the terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans in order to win the presidential election in 2012.
That revelation could move all the way into desires for impeachment of the president.
Keep in mind that what ever was shaken up during the Eclipse/Grand Cross season has more importance than it may look like on the surface right now.
For instance the situation in Ukraine is much more than just a conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Much of the world has a stake in how this turns out, similar to what has been happening in Syria.
But unlike Syria, there is an overt battle of wills going on between Russia and the United States that has the potential (especially so because of the planetary energies synchronizing with this conflict) to blow up into a world war.
Drastic events in personal lives have been happening in order to break out of personal paradigms, beliefs or habits that have been blocking the now very powerful frequencies of new consciousness of a new age.
And the greater world will also need more drastic events to unfold in order for us to have open doors into collective new consciousness for evolution into a new age.
These earth shaking and human changing events will soon become much stronger, and will stay strong at least over the next 18 months or so.
For the immediate week ahead, however, we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on April 29. Change is still blowing in.
But at the same time it is very important now to take care of your self, nurture and heal your self, keep your self grounded and sane.
The changes are inevitable, but how you handle them is under your control. If you add to your stress with blame and judgment, beating up your self or others, you are missing the opportunities now to open to healing and solution, to breakthroughs and new pathways. It is healthy to take responsibility for what one may have done wrong, and to learn from one’s mistakes. But it is counterproductive and unhealthy to beat up your self or others for things not turning out how you wanted them to be.
Personal growth and evolution are dependent on each of us knowing we are on a human path that requires us to be learning as we go, not being perfect at any point along the way.
