It has been quite an intense Eclipse Season for many. We are in transition between chapters of our lives. We are releasing and perhaps grieving where we have been and who has been with us from the now passing chapter of our lives.
The Lunar Eclipse last week was quite powerful and an important turning point for many.
The old can no longer be easily held onto anymore. We are being strongly motivated to let go, and if we are capable of letting go with love, that is usually the healthiest way to go.
But truth is also important now, and holding oneself and others accountable is part of that truth.
The next chapter of our lives will be long term better if we leave the old chapter in the “right way”. Perhaps we have regrets, but they are not good to hold onto. We can learn from them and find meaning from them, but beating ourselves and others up is out of alignment and does not help our new journey forward.
From now until April 7, at the New Moon in Aries, we are processing all we have recently gone through on the physical plane, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
We are prepping and preparing on all levels for the strong movement forward after the 7th of April.
So April 7 is a good marking point, if you need one, for new beginnings of all sorts.
If your 3-D life does not have any obvious new chapters, then go deeper inside to see what is changing.
Are you leaving behind old patterns and habits, old attitudes and beliefs? Are you coming back to your true values and authenticity? Are you rewiring your self or your life rom the inside?
Do get in touch with the changes now, as this is an important time period on our transformational journey, a time when we are evolving and progressing, whether we consciously know it or not.
In the Greater World there is great change happening between chapters and between ages.
Many signs are pointing to a long term war with the Islamic State, a war that is bound to trigger other conflictual relationships between world countries, cultures and egos. The suicide bombing in Brussels at the eclipse this week was telling.
Is this what we want or what we need?
There is an economy that looks OK on the outside, but in many peoples’ real lives it is not OK. How will the transformation of our world economy play out?
The USA presidential election is showing, through what the candidates represent, very different ideas of how to guide our lives going forward into a new chapter and soon new age.
Do we need to revisit old, outworn, unhealthy, destructive, dominating, greedy ways of living on this planet together?
What will it take for the vast majority of this world’s human population to get the fact that all humans are part of the same family with similar needs and hopes?
Will it take a huge wakeup call that happens by taking everything to the edge of despair first? Or can we wake up in ways that will not destroy so many lives first.
Often I picture aliens coming down to our planet, scaring us, and motivating us to come together as one family in contrast to the Visitors. I find that a better option than doing the world war and breakdown of our economy again.
Many from a now dying generation experienced a World War and a Depression in their youths.
Another more recent generation, now entering old age, experienced revolutionary times of great change, with much war and violence being a motivation for wanting to change the world.
But now the change at our doorsteps is more important than ever, as we are further along the road to an Age of Aquarius.
As such we so need beliefs and paradigms for each or us and collectively to deeply transform.
We can no longer just accept the idea that those with different orientations of all kinds are our enemy or someone not to be trusted.
We can no longer just accept the paradigm that evolution requires a dog-eat-dog mentality to survive.
We can no longer accept that our lives are filled with random events not connected with any meaning.
In fact we can no longer accept the belief that we are all separate with little or no threads of connection between us.
And we can no longer accept that truth is a matter of how you spin things. Truth should not be just in the hands of those in power and control. Truth should not be in the hands of those “in authority”.
Truth is there for us all to witness, filtered through our own minds and hearts, not programmed into us by an unhealthy society.
So now this week, as we begin to “come down” from the disruptions of the eclipses, it is time to begin to bring more sanity and groundedness into your consciousness and lives.
Saturn, which just shot out its gravitational energies to us through its change to retrograde last week, can now provide us with said grounding and organizational skills and discipline.
We can now take back some control of our lives, or better yet take full accountabilty and responsibilty for our own lives and choices.
So this week we begin the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.
There is a lot to to process and a lot to do while looking forward to new beginnings after the 7th of April.
Also this week, Mercury will be busy with aspects to expansive and transformational planets.
Mercury makes aspect to Jupiter on the 29th, Pluto on the 30th, and onjuncts Uranus on the 31st.
Mercury, the messenger of the gods, will be trying to deliver information from the heavens to each of us for our own lives and for the lives of us as a collective.
It will be a great week for meditation or spiritual practice.
Mercury is also about communication, and how you convey your message to others is important. If you allow your mind to go deeper, you will get the help you need in how to communicate effectively.
