It is rather difficult to find clarity about life direction now, almost feeling at times like Mercury Retrgrade. We have been releasing and letting go of the past, trusting that the new world will be clearer as a result.
But for many now, they are caught in a tunnel between worlds, in a void waiting for direction.
Things are shaking up for sure, but where are we going? And if we do know where we are likely going, it still does not feel very settled and solid.
As we look at the greater world, we see similar confusion as to where we are going. Look at the campaign for President of the USA.
Donald Trump is so different than what anyone might have thought would be President.
But yet now he is is at the front of the line of candidates to be President.
According to my astrological formula for President, he is quite high in rating to win. To my calculation, if we are faced with overwhelming security issues this autumn, he will win. If the economy or terrorist issues are in dire straights for Americans, then he will win.
If however things stay as are now, there is a good chance still that Clinton or Sanders will win instead.
So does it feel almost fated that Trump will win? Does he represent the old America so much, at a time there is a collective need to hold back the tide of the Age of Aquarius?
In 20 years or less, it is calculated that minorities will be the majority in the United States. White people will be in the minority. Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and yes Muslims will together make up the majority in America.
And Trump people’s version of America is ending. Many hate the idea that old way will end. Old white men running the country was already threatened by Obama’s presidency. And many of these people liking Trump hated President Obama.
Diversity in Unity is coming, but there is a lot to work out first.
And Sanders represents a transformed economy, one more aligned with equality; and he represents an acceptance of the world of Diversity.
So does Clinton bring an acceptance of diversity, and she also represents another break from Old White men running the country. What many people wonder, however, is if she is beholden to that old world’s values in other starkly important ways.
And it is easy to move through transformational change on just the surface, not on a deeper level.
In your own life, if you are changing relationships; will that new relationship also bring a change in old unhealthy patterns. Or are you just changing the sheets in the same old bed of your life?
If you are changing jobs or changing where you live, is it because you need a job or home to reflect the changes you have made internally? That is positive transformaion.
Or is the job or home change just a way you can escape the deeper issues?
This is a time period, an Eclipse Season leading soon to an Age of Aquarius, where the winds of the Universe will assist deeper transformation. This deeper transformation will bring you closer to your authentic Soul Self, leading a more authentic life in service to a new age on Planet Earth.
And there is much more to experience during this Eclipse Season. I believe this one will last until just past the Full Moon on April 21.
There is still a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on March 23 to experience, one that will likely shake things up even more drastically than this last one in Pisces.
This one in Pisces has been emotionally intense and confusing for finding clarity and direction. It has also been difficult for some to focus this week. In part that is because of the nature of eclipses, and also because the often nebulous sign of Pisces is involved.
But it is also because we have been experiencing a mutable T-Square which includes: a Solar Eclipse in Pisces, Jupiter in Virgo, and Saturn in Sagittarius. We are being pulled in 3 different directions, so of ocurse not knowing which way to turn. And Neptune in Pisces is just out of orb from making a mutable Grand Cross, which would pull us in 4 different directions.
Nevertheless on April 7, at the New Moon in straight forward Aries, we will be sent forward- ready or not.
Our direction, both personally and globally will be pretty much laid out by then. We will know what is happening as long as we do not choose to put our heads in the sand to escape from seeing clearly.
So for now see it all as a process and let go of strong desires to get going forward in action.
I know it can be stress inducing to sit in the middle and not be moving forward. But you will know soon enough, so do your best to find some peace internally and focus on healing for a bit more time.
Next week there will be more energy for active pursuits, or at least a feeling like the tide has turned.
That is because very early on the 20th there is the Spring Equinox. At that time there is equality between dark and light, between yin and yang. But right afterwards the tide turns to light and yang, to movement forward.
Maybe you will only subtly feel that turn, maybe more so for some. But keep in mind that once the Moon catches up with the Sun in Aries, then it will be time to get going.
And whenever the Moon catches up to the Sun, a New Moon is created. And the one on April 7 will be in Aries, the sign of active fiery movement forward.
Before that we experience the Spring Equinox while immersed in Eclipse Season. Just before that, on Wednesday March 16, we experience the rather powerful aspect of Jupiter trine Pluto.
This will mainly be seen in the greater world through its events. Powerful and maybe even explosive events will happen surrounding that date. In your personal life, there may also be more intensity again, as this Jupiter trine Pluto aspect happens during Eclipse Season.
So keep your focus on the bigger picture and do your best to keep releasing beliefs and attitudes that no longer serve you or the world we live in.
And open your mind and heart to connect with resonant energies and people, even if on the surface they seem different or strange to you.
