If you have been waiting for things to shift, or for some clarity and direction, or for decisions to be made, or for things to open up, help is on the way.
We are now in the last week of Mercury retrograde, as Mercury will go direct on August 26. Two days later on August 28 there is New Moon in Virgo.
Before that, in the immediate week ahead, we are in the last quarter Moon- lasting until that New Moon in Virgo on August 28.
Last quarter moons are the last part of the waning Moon phase and are times to slow down and go inside and reflect. Mercury finishing up its retrograde time gives us the same theme of going inward to contemplate.
Do not “push the river” now, let it flow. Let go and let nature take its course. Wait for the air to clear and for openings to appear before you thrust forward with your plans. I know how easy it is to get anxious when we have to wait, but learning patience and trust helps our psychological and spiritual development, and lessens stress. Life is changing however, and the status quo cannot be held for long.
We are feeling differently inside. We know we are in the beginning stages of a vast transformation of our human lives here on planet Earth. And the changes you are going through in your consciousness and personal life are meant to put you in line with these bigger changes.
There is revolution swirling all around the Earth. People are getting tired of having their lives controlled by forces outside themselves. Big Corporations and Big Governments are not serving our human family. So many people are feeling like they want to be liberated. So many live their lives with no real of sense of purpose. It is because they have been programmed to give their loyalty to a state or job or family, and have lost their sense of their own individuality, their own free mind and heart and soul.
Do you believe your short time on this Earth is meant to be in service to the rich and privileged who act as if they own the Earth and the creatures who dwell upon it? Our ancestors and founders of America believed otherwise. They set up our country on the belief that all are created equal and endowed by the Universe with natural rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They believed the world belongs to “we the people”, not governments or corporations or privileged royalty.
Yet our country has left its principles and has become an empire, invading and colonizing other peoples and taking away their liberty and their god given right of self determination. It is run by mega corporations and dyfunctional government serving its own interests, far removed from the needs of the people.
And all over the world, not just here in America, wealthy and privileged run the every day lives of ordinary people, who slave to just make ends meet and do jobs not aligned with their true selves and true potential of contribution to our human community here on Earth.
So revolution is stirring, it has been sweeping lives in the Middle East and Northern Africa. It is beginning to happen in England and will before long envelope much of the world. The great transformation of our economic system is happening now as the markets all around the world are plunging. Great empires are falling.
The Soviet Union fell in the ’90s and its downfall was preceded by its failure in Afghanistan. The USA empire is now in its downfall, and the failure in Afghanistan is growing into reality. Empires have no role in an Aquarian Age, or do Big Corp or Big Government or privileged royalty. There is no more need for Romes on this Earth. The USA needs to return to its original values.
Many believe the cusp of the Aquarian Age was approached when Uranus was discovered in 1781. Synchronistically, two revolutions that demanded power to the people were erupting surrounding that time period: The American and French revolutions. Uranus is considered the ruling planet of Aquarius.
So you can see what the Aquarian Age will be like. It is to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people” all over the world, not just here in America. It is about equality and Diversity in Unity.
So now as life thrusts us into situations that shake up our lives, remember you are being helped to leave the situations and people in your life that keep you chained. You are being helped to find your free and authentic self and to connect with the greater Universe. Your connection with the Universe will serve to bring you to your true life and real purpose for living. It will help you to evolve your consciousness and life aligned with the Aquarian Age we are fast forward moving into.
This coming week we meet up with the Sun going into Virgo on Tuesday August 23 and then the Moon meeting up with the Sun in Virgo on August 28 to form a New Moon in Virgo. This means it is soon time to get down to business, to face reality, to get your life in order.
As Mercury goes direct this coming Friday August 26, clarity begins to form and then we feel a nudge forward at that Virgo New Moon.
Late September and October bring meaningful movements of Comet Elenin and October 28 is the end of the Mayan Calendar according to expert researcher Carl Calleman.
Therefore we can expect transformational energies to accelerate. We could be looking at big world change and world events before October 28. Especially look for continued shocks to the old economy, for more world revolutionary movements, for big changes in the Middle East, especially in Israel/Palestine.
This past week showed stock plunges all over the world, serious revolutionary movements in Libya and Syria, and conflict greatly intensifying between Israel and the Palestinians.
See you next week,
