This week we move through the 2nd and last eclipse of Winter Eclipse Season 2018: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.
This Eclipse Season will last into March, but there are no more eclipses beyond the one this coming week.
It has already been a most eventful Eclipse Season, mostly because of the severe downfall of the Stock Market. We have been predicting that this would happen this year and likely in this Eclipse Season: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyIVxnMPGzI&feature=youtu.be
This will be the first blow to the stock market this year, and the beginning of the transformation of the USA and world economy. The economy is part of the Military/Economic Complex that will be greatly transformed over the next few years as we transition into the Age of Aquarius.
As we move through the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius this Eclipse Season, the stock market will remain a huge concern. Keep in mind that there will still be attempts to go back to the Bull Market mania, but those attempts will be short-lived. We may ultimately be looking at something resembling the 1929 crash that brought on the financial challenges of the 1930s.
With Impeachment calls also getting louder this Eclipse Season, and counter attacks rising out of the FBI memo; we can expect the culture wars to exacerbate more and more.
There is not much connection between our political parties anymore, and this is reflective of the conflict going on between two very polarized cultures in the USA.
The Charlottesville uprising during last summer’s Eclipse Season was the first obvious sign of civil war since the Trump election.
Now as economic challenges intensify and impeachment cries get louder, civil war intensifies in the USA.
The Trump presidency will be in more and more trouble. And so we need to be awake to the possibility of distraction created with war: “Wag the Dog” diversions in North Korea and Syria would be more likely.
Trump has his natal Mars triggered by the Aquarius Solar Eclipse this week just as it was at the Solar Eclipse in Leo last summer. Does that mean he will be fighting for his political life with cries for his removal as President, and/or that he will be instigating conflicts as he did with North Korea last summer?
Know for sure that his natal Mars in Leo will be touched off in some big way. Already he is said to be calling for a huge military parade in D.C. to show off USA might.
Israel and Netanyahu are again having their natal Mars affected too by this Solar Eclipse. War clouds will be forming over Israel, Lebanon, and Syria. And Iran and North Korea are in the cross-hairs of the USA military. If they do not bow to demands they will be severely attacked one way or another.
And this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius will be on Thursday February 15 at 4:05 PM EST. It will be closely conjunct the USA natal Moon in Aquarius from its birth on July 4 1776. The Chinese Year of the Dog also begins after this Solar Eclipse.
Group creation, gatherings, group missions, and activism are aligned with this Solar Eclipse. People connecting with the USA Moon in Aquarius values of free speech, democracy, equality, and diversity are the most positive outcomes, but for all not just Americans.
Social consciousness is being raised at the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon, but one person’s social conscience may be totally different from another’s social conscience.
For instance you may feel having an abortion is a woman’s right and no one should be pontificating to her about what she should do with her own body and pregnancy. To another person killing a fetus is murder and that is their social conscience.
I have noticed during this Eclipse Season that people are being “taken to the edge” so they can be made aware that something needs to change.
Often we are able to just go along with how things have been for a long time, coasting in same-old, same-old habits that have become “comfortable”.
But now we are being taken off balance in order to address deep seated problems inside ourselves, in our health, in our jobs, in our relationships.
We can no longer “push under the rug” issues that we do no want to deal with. It is time to act and make changes.
In many of these cases we are being pushed further forward into a New Chapter of our lives, and any blockages to that passage forward will give resistance to the process.
That resistance needs to be looked at and worked with, just as a blockage in one’s body and chakra system needs help to be released and transformed.
For some this Eclipse Season will be more graceful as they are ready for the changes. Their challenge will be more about adjusting to the changes.
Many are in transition from their old normal toward a new normal in the New Chapter. But for now they are in limbo, as the old normal is gone and the new normal has not been fully manifested yet.
That is not an easy place to be in. It takes patience and faith to be able to sit in that space without too much stress. You may want to push the river of the Universe to go faster. That will not work. Or you may get overwhelmed with fear, depression, anxiety, or panic. That will be relieved if you believe more strongly that all is happening for a reason and will turn out OK.
So now during this week of the Solar Eclipse, energies intensify and may feel as if they will erupt.
You are being taken off balance so you can be “on your toes” for change.
Most affected by this Solar Eclipse are Aquarians, especially those born February 10-18. Leos also are more affected, especially those born August 15-23.
Scorpio and Taurus also affected, especially those born in the late degrees of those signs.
And of course all those born with other planets in those signs and degrees will also be affected.
Those who were most affected during last summer’s Solar Eclipse in Leo will be aligned for this eclipse also.
Please do not see this as negative or painful as most people affected will not feel that.
Many will feel liberated, awakened, and more open to the winds of change. They are seeing more truths and feeling more love. And those working through the blocks will also soon feel those same things.
Look at the winds of change bringing events into our world, events that are needed to transform our world more in line with the Age of Aquarius. There are clues everywhere during Eclipse Season to what is coming our way soon.
It is more important than ever not to let fear overtake you now. Do whatever it takes to be centered and grounded, yet still open and awake.
We were all born so we can be alive during this huge changing of Ages. We have been here before and are needed again to honor Love and Truth during these tumultuous times.
Till next week,
A podcast will be broadcast soon, and then hopefully a radio show podcast sometime later.
