The buildup of intensity from the eclipses has subsided. But the eclipse season continues through this month; and because of the profound importance of this eclipse season, events connected to it will continue for several months hence.
Some of you have experienced truly life altering events over the last few months. Others have had their lives shaken up, and changes will come as a result later. Others had the winds blow their lives around a bit, which has mainly shifted their attitudes, beliefs and old patterns of behavior. Some of you have endured and resisted the tides of change, and are hoping everything can now go back to “normal”.
This last eclipse, the Cardinal Grand Cross Solar Eclipse New Moon, was a powerful symbol for our entrance into a new season of our human lives here on Earth. This is the second year in a row that we have had a Grand Cross Eclipse. Last summer was a Grand Cross Lunar Eclipse. Trust me, these Grand Cross Eclipses are very rare, and having them two years in a row shows us powerful symbols of the immense changes we are riding through.
This New Season of our lives here on Earth will become more and more apparent in the greater world soon. I am sure many of you see it already, but it is not apparent to all because the Powers that Be of our Old World Paradigm are bailing water from the Titanic and using bandages to plug the holes on the sides of the ship.
The Old World economy is sinking fast. The smoke and mirror campaign of hiding the holes on the sides of our economic ship is beginning to fail. It is becoming more and more apparent that the sinking is fast approaching. As there is an election for president in 2012, there will be greater attempts to cover up the reality of the sinking ship. But I would be surprised if the sinking ship stays afloat through the coming winter. Late summer, autumn and winter should bring more icebergs cracking open the economic boat.
Remember that our old world structure is held together by the twin pillars of global economy and global military. So these will be the issues of coming crises, economic restructuring and power restructuring. These twin pillars of the dying old world get strengthened by peoples’ fear and hatred.
The twin pillars of the New World and Age are Truth and Love, which are the twin pillars of the Universe. Put your trust in them now.
Trust in our selves, trust in the “better angels” in humanity, trust in Nature, trust in the Universe will help us to leave this old world and build a new world together. That trust and the love that keeps trust strong is already fueling our entry into a new personal season in our individual lives, and a new season on the way to an Aquarian Age.
The passing eclipse season spiked our speed forward into this New Age. Old ways that keep you stuck in the Old World paradigm have been breaking down, so that new light and energy can come through. This new light and energy show us what to do and when. Nothing can stop this energy, and nothing can eventually stand in its way.
So trust Nature and the Universe to be stronger than the the twin pillars of economy and military and old rules. What is and will be happening is part of the clearing. You don’t have to figure it all out now. Life unfolds and reveals what you need when you need it. Your trusting does not mean being passive however.
As you see changing winds moving into your life, move with them. Look for signs and symbols that show you the way. You see them better when your heart and mind are open and trusting in the Universe and your self. When you are enveloped in fear the signs and symbols morph into negative tones, and you may then move in a direction that is harmful to you.
Tonight, Saturday July 9, Uranus changes direction from Direct to Retrograde. Whenever a planet changes directions, to either retrograde or direct, its meaning and energy permeate our lives and psyche. Uranus is about liberation, getting outside the boxes of our stuck reality. Uranus makes our minds more inventive, and sometimes brings surprises into our lives. Uranus is a wake-up call that helps us shift our perceptions. Use this energy over the next few days to break out of your stuck places and patterns. Begin or continue to liberate your self from situations and people that keep you from living the authentic life you desire. Use this Uranus shift to help you to break your mind open to new levels of awareness, to new ways to look at your life and the world around you.
In the greater world, Uranus often brings more chaos and brings the energy for revolution, for liberation and great changes.
One big world shift is the movement to liberate the Palestinians. This will continue to get stronger. During the eclipse season a Freedom Flotilla was organized into many ships carrying peace activists from different parts of the world. These ships and activists planned to break an unjust blockade that Israel has over the Gaza strip and the Palestinians that occupy it. The Old World Powers that Be from America, Greece, Israel and other western countires colluded together to stop the Flotilla from leaving their ports in Greece and Turkey. Greek authorities made up reasons to keep the ships from sailing.
The liberation of the Palestinians from the apartheid conditions in the Middle East will accelerate. In September the Palestinians are expected to declare they want to be an independent state of the world to the UN. It will not pass as the USA will stop it from passing. In the past the USA has always sided with Israel, which has been the biggest impediment to a peace agreeement and freedom for the Palestinian people. But nothing wil stop the eventual freedom of te Palestinian people and their right to self determination and a nation of their own.
Earthquakes also seem to occur with more frequency in the 3-4 days surrounding a Uranus shift.
Also this coming week brings a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on Friday July 15 at 2:40 AM EDT. It will be on July 14 on the west coast of the USA. This is the first “normal” new or full moon since the May 17 Full Moon in Scorpio. It is “normal” since it not an eclipse this time. This Capricorn Full Moon puts a book end on the eclipse season. More events that are an outgrowth of the eclipse season will continue to happen in the world for a few more months however.
But this Full Moon in Capricorn should bring some sense of climax or resolution or finality to some recent issues or events in your life. It should bring some limits to emotional issues and dramas that have recently arisen. There could be a better relationship and balance between domestic, family issues and work, outer world issues. Use this Full Moon to bring back more “normality”, sanity, and safety to your life.
Take care and talk to you next week,
