The winds of the coming Eclipse Season pick up their force this week. In the middle of the upcoming week, Neptune changes directions and there is a Full Moon in Taurus. These planetary events open the windows of the eclipse season, so you can begin to feel these winds of change.
Eclipses bring increased intensity into our psyches and lives. They take us off our contented plateaus of existence, and help us to make needed changes. The first eclipse will be on November 24/25 at 2+ degrees of Sagittarius. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon. The second one is on December 10, and is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini. The Eclipse season will last approximately until around the Winter Solstice.
The Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus this week is the last major lunation before that first eclipse. It is two weeks prior to the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, which happens Thanksgiving night here in America.
So the themes of the Eclipse Season in your life should begin to appear soon, if they have not already begun. And the themes for the Eclipse Season in the greater world will begin to show us events after the Full Moon in Taurus this week.
Some of those greater world themes are already showing up. The Powers that Were of our old world are beginning to beat the drums of war against Iran. As we have mentioned before, the shake up of the Middle East is an ignition of the fires of transformation that will clear the way into an Aquarian Age.
The Middle East is a center of the old religions, Christianity, Islam, Judaism. Part of the movement into an Aquarian Age is a Spiritual Renaissance, a transformation of these old religions, which have clogged arteries of spirituality. There is a war of cultures between Islam and Judeo/Christian that threatens all of our existences. Here in the Middle East is where healing is desperately needed.
As with much healing, a catharsis is needed first, one that brings all the tensions and issues to the surface before the healing.
This week there is the Haji, what is considered a sacred pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Millions will make this pilgramage. It ends around the time of the Full Moon. Watch for potential powerful events to happen there.
We desperately need Unity between the cultures of Islam and Judeo/Christian. Israel and the United States are planning a military attack on Iran. They may decide to do this during the Eclipse Season. All of us around the western world now need more than ever to release our prejudging of this Islamic culture.
The Powers that Were in our western world are going to amp up the demonizing of Iran, just as we demonized Iraq and Saddam Hussein, and Libya and Moammar Ghadafi. This demonizing is for the purpose of getting us to hate and wanting to destroy these other peoples.
We are moving into an Aquarian Age of Diversity in Unity, when all are accepted in their individual authenticity, in wholeness with our human community. Move your consciousness, during this Eclipse Season, into Unity Consciousness, away from the fear mongering of our prevailing main culture and its lamestream media.
Think for your self, open to the truth in your heart and mind, beyond the programming of culture. No country is directly threatening us now, and if Iran develops a nuclear weapon it will be like an ant compared to American and Israeli weapons of mass destruction.
Peace in our world is directly influenced by peace in our hearts. Peace and brotherhood and sisterhood are needed more than ever.
The revolutions will not stop now, as people all over the world are sick and tired of being controlled by Mega Corporations and corrupt governments. We are ready to leave behind the inane paradigm of the conservative versus liberal conflict.
Finding the truth is easier if you do not wear a uniform of liberal or conservative. Truth is that conservative opinion is correct that too much government is destroying us all. Truth is that liberal opinion is correct that the wealthy and big corporate interests are destroying us all.
It is time for a new world, beyond the conservative and liberal, beyond the democrat and republican, beyond capitalist versus socialist.
We now need a world that does not care about who is right, and winning for your team or party. Our world needs power to the people of this world, power to people who care about our planet and human family, power to doing what is best for us all, not just what is best for our team of people.
We need people who will get real about the dangers that face us, like weapons of mass destruction and climate change, and finding new energy sources, etc. The childish tit-for-tat must end or we will. The current and approaching events will help us to blow open the pathways into healing, transformation and sane solutions to our challenges.
Use this eclipse season to look in the mirror of your personal life and soul, so you can see what needs to be changed. If you want to liberate your self from the chains that hold you back from leading a more authentic life, aligned with your true self and the Universe and the needs of our human community here on Earth; then it is important to be awake and alert to the signs of change for your life.
The Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus is on Thursday November 10 at 3:16 PM EST. Neptune goes direct on Wednesday November 9. These aspects, especially so as they open the Eclipse season, will bring us a big energetic shift.
Emotional intensity should be increasing. Issues that come up may be disorienting and confusing. Neptune suggests that it is best to let go and let the Universe, to go with the flow and not try too hard at anything.
Conflicts can occur at this Taurus Full Moon that are based on tugs of war or power struggles. Decisions on what to hold onto and what to release may also come up for you now. Do your best to get in touch with what you need to keep and what is ready to go.
Look for signs and synchronicities now that will show you what is to be experienced during this eclipse season. If you are a Taurus or Scorpio by Sun sign, you will experience this full moon most intensely, especially if you are born around this time.
For all of us intensities will increase after this Full Moon, as we get closer to that first eclipse on November 24/25.
Remember, all of us, all over the world are one big family, whether our consciousness can see this or not. We are all connected by our common humanity, and let us hope we do not need our conflicts to get to the insane edge in order to get it.
