We are in a new lunar cycle, which was created at the Libra New Moon on October 4. This lunar cycle will lead into the Full Moon in Aries on October 18.
That Full Moon will be much stronger than the usual Full Moon, as it is also a Lunar Eclipse. That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra/Aries is to be the first of two eclipses this Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.
This Eclipse Season also includes a Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio; an exact square of revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto; Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio; and the likely appearance of Comet Ison.
Starting now and moving through an even more powerful Spring of 2014, we are in a most important approximately 9 month gestation period for the United States and the world.
America’s superpower status is in the process of breaking down. This Empire is on its last legs, as we move beyond Empires and into an Aquarian Age of equality, power to the people, and Diversity in Unity.
Since the Military/Economic power structure is the engine powering this Empire, it is that which is breaking down and being transformed now.
It is part of this transformation that brings us into more dialogue with other nations instead of going to war, as is happening with Syria and Iran. Most would say this a good part of the process, a making relationship with other peoples instead of domination and violent conflict. But know there are elements in this world that desire to reignite domination and war back into our lives during this transitional time.
Our economic structure is also breaking down. You can see that as you watch our mostly dysfunctional two party government system make a mess of its budget, its debt, and its economic health.
The Government is shut down or slimmed down or whatever. There is a worse crisis looming, however, with the need to raise the debt ceiling, an issue that needs to be resolved around the time of the first eclipse on October 18.
There are some planetary full circles occurring this autumn in conjunction with the eclipses- full circles connected to the Stock Market collapse in October 1929.
Uranus, which has an 84 year cycle, is back to where it was when the market crashed back in 1929. This is the first time since 1929 that Uranus has been in Aries. Additionally there was a Scorpio Solar Eclipse just days after that market crash in 1929, and there will be another one on November 3 this year. There have been only three other Scorpio Solar Eclipses since that one in 1929.
And Neptune is exactly opposite to where it was in 1929: It was in Virgo then, it is in Pisces now. And both in 1929 and now it is making an aspect to the USA natal Venus, a planet that gives indication of economic health and welfare. Neptune tends to dissolve that which it aspects.
We may not be looking at anything as dramatic as a stock market crash, but we can expect an strong economic downturn at least.
And then in April of 2014 there will be Grand Cross of planets in cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, which will include the next exact square of Uranus and Pluto within it. And most significantly, the USA natal Sun at 13 degrees of Cancer will be exactly in the cross hairs of that Grand Cross. The United States will change greatly over the next 6-9 months. And to make everything even more powerfully important, there will be two eclipses that month of April also. Those eclipses will be the next Eclipse Season after this one we are now in this autumn.
Very meaningful world events will be playing out within the next several months and beyond, events that will shake up and transform the old world paradigm we have been saluting to for centuries.
And in America, we need to clean up our mess and return to the values and principles for which we stand. The Democratic and Republican parties are failing and new parties are needed to inspire our people again. The Libertarian and Green parties now claim our more pure values and hopefully will gain in popularity over the next several years.
We can also expect more movements toward anarchy at the same time, a desire to break down institutions that no longer serve our world, including religions that have largely lost the original values from which they were founded.
The first truly global Empire Rome was begun at the beginning of the Pisces Age over 2000 years ago. And the seeds of the first global religions were also planted then as the Christ was born at the beginning of that age.
Now in the transition between ages, as we move more strongly into the Age of Aquarius, there is a transformation of our global village happening, one assisted by the equality and decentralization of the Internet and its social networks. And there is a Spiritual Renaissance happening also, as humans are learning to connect with spirit and soul without the need for huge institutional Religions of control.
We are each a part of a great global shift into an Aquarian Age. What you do in your own consciousness and life contributes to the health of our nation and world as we evolve into this new age.
For each of us there is a need to release old programming from society and families that tends to keep us in our fears and our controlling egos, There is need to clean up our individual chakra systems of toxins, stuck energies and patterns, so we can be receptive to new light and energy seeking to enter our bodies and souls.
This will bring to us new consciousness that is aligned with the Universe in its voyage to an Age of Aquarius here on Planet Earth.
For now, we have just entered with baby steps into the Autumn Eclipse Season 2013. Energies will progressively intensify as we approach the first eclipse on October 18.
The Libra New Moon shows each of us our need to connect with others, and to see the connections we all have with one another and with everything in the world and Universe. You may feel alone sometimes, but if you open your heart wider you will know you are always loved.
