It has been unusually difficult lately making any decisions. Not completely sure why. Perhaps it is because of the sense of big changes coming our way. We know that the way our lives look now, before the shifting tides, is much different than how they will soon look. So how can we know what to do, especially as we do not know exactly what is going to happen.
The 33 miners in Chile were rescued from deep within a mine this past week. That was such a wonderful thing to hear about. Their ability to survive the ordeal, the rescue by their community, the well wishes from people all over the world, was great to see.
I noticed in the news today, only a few days after the rescue, that 4 miners are trapped in Equador, and that an explosion in a Chinese Coal mine just killed 21 miners, while 16 more are trapped there. What is the message? What are the signs telling us?
Deep withing the bowels of the Earth, in the Plutonian underground of Dante’s Inferno, there are transformational energies brewing. Pluto’s kind of transformation is like the journey of the bird phoenix. It rises from the ashes of despair into powerful and inspirational rebirth. We are approaching Pluto’s favorite time of year, when the Sun moves into Scorpio, this year on Saturday October 23- next Saturday.
Here in the Northern Hemisphere Scorpio time of year shows us trees going bare, colder and darker days, and Samhain/Halloween, when the veils between the worlds is thinnest. With such dramatic underground activity this year, with only Mars and retrograde Venus now being in Scorpio, we can likely expect some powerful stirrings to occur this late October through November.
Of course the elections will be on November 2, in early Sun in Scorpio time, just after Samhain. Mars will still be in Scorpio and Venus still in retrograde in Scorpio. Will Tea Party candidates erupt more forcefully, through victory, into our political landscape? What kind of culture shock will this bring to our American lives and the world?
Even if they win big, the Tea Party is only a blip on the screen of history. It is fossils of old times trying to resurrect the past. It will not last long as an Aquarian Age is inexorably moving into our human consciousness and world. The Tea Party is about people who do not want the old world to end. Many want the Reagan years to never end, and are sincerely believing they will lose their freedom to a world of socialism.
Last week I wrote about a big event(s) coming our way from late October to Mid November or from December 5 to January 18, 2011.
A big red flag can be seen in the Middle East now. The peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have apparently failed. Iran and Israel are obviously building up mutual animosity toward one another, that feels like immanent war approaching. Turkey and Lebanon are getting closer to Iran. China is getting closer to Iran. The whole arab and Muslim nation are losing hope that Israel truly wants to end the occupation of Palestinians. Most do not believe the USA can be a fair broker of peace as it has Israel as its strong ally.
Many in the USA, including Bill O’Reilly of Fox news, who represents many people in the USA, believe that Muslims attacked the USA and do not deserve to put up a mosque near the site of the 9-11 attacks. They truly see Islam as their enemy, not just some radical people who were also Muslim. Grave lack of trust is coming from Judeo-Christian cultures against Muslim cultures- especially from Israel and America, but also many in Europe. Lack of trust from Muslim cultures against Judeo-Christian cultures is also prevalent. This portends major conflict for the near future, as things seem to be coming to a boiling point.
Another interesting development is the more mainstream spotlight on UFOs. Recently many from the USA airforce stated they saw UFOs hovering near a nuclear weapons depot and soon therafter nuclear weapons were disabled. This week in New York City hundreds of people stopped and stared at objects in the sky that have not been identified by any authorities.
Back some years ago, when I hosted a radio talk show in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I interviewed John Mack, professor and psychiatrist at Harvard University and a Pulitzer prize writer. He had written a book, “Passport to the Cosmos”, based on his studies and interviews of people who claimed to have been abducted by aliens.
He expected to find out that the people were mentally unbalanced, his being a psychiatrist, of course. Instead he found the people quite credible. And he also found that they all had some similar experiences, though from very different cultures, and had not talked to one another. One such similarity is that they found out from their abductors that they believed we humans were destroying ourselves and the Earth, and they wanted to help.
Were the UFOs encountered by the USA airforce wanting to dismantle our nuclear weapons because they know where we are headed with them? Are we on the verge of some dangerous conflicts that need intervention from more evolved beings? Is this possible?
Well perhaps this is all rather dramatic of me. Perhaps the big events coming our way soon will be something with the economy or something else we cannot envision yet.
Yet the astrologcal aspects from this summer were quite rare and promise new seasons of our human lives here on Earth. And soon there will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on the winter solstice, touching off and triggering many of the aspects of the Summer of 2010.
And right after that, there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon at 13+ degrees of Capricorn, directly and closely opposite the USA natal Sun at 13+ degrees of Cancer.
Timing of events is always challenging, and perhaps the big events will happen later in the year of 2011 than I have predicted, but they are coming soon.
And all of you who have been working on your selves, transforming your consciousness and lives in anticipation of a New World being born, will be brought forward into greater transformation and healing, into more healthy and connected lives, more community, a greater sense of purpose, more soul and spirit in your life, more magic and synchronicity, deeper connection to your authentic self, the Universe and each other.
Of course Venus is still retrograde in Scorpio, and relationships and heart issues are in the spotlight. This is not only romantic relationships, but also friendships and family bonds and work relationships. Let the past in- through people showing up in your life in person, or through dreams and memories. Retrograde periods often take us back, so we can better understand and give perspective to our current lives and relationships. You have a good opportunity, during Venus Retrograde, to transform and improve your current relationships, to end bad ones, to meet new people who will assist your journey.
This week leads up to our second Aries Full Moon in a row, this one on Friday October 22 at 9:37 PM EDT. Relationship issues are again emphasized, but your need to assert your self or your independence can be a big part of the dialogue now.
The Sun goes into Scorpio on Saturday October 23 at 8:35 AM EDT. It is time to go deeper into your mind and emotions, to see the core of truth, not to live in dream world about reality. As emotions get stronger it is important to not keep them locked up inside, but instead to express them. Just remember that if you have been holding back these feelings for a long time, they could come on explosively, so be careful.
Talk to you next week. I have put off the next radio show but will let you know a week before it broadcasts.
