For some in Japan and especially Chile, it must have felt like the end of the world with the Earthquakes there this week. And of course very recently the people of Haiti experienced a most devastating Earthquake. Our world is shaking at its foundation. We are in the throes of immense transformation over the next several years, and 2010 is a year when the shape of that transformation will reveal itself.
There are so many powerful astrological aspects this year, as there is a restructuring of our planet, our human family and its paradigm for living. The old ways, the corrupt institutions, the old forms that no longer hold the spirit, the heart and soul of humanity need to be transformed.
When there is an idea, an inspiration, a value or principle that a people believe in; they build communities, governments, clubs, and institutions to hold it. These built structures are for the purpose of instituting, of making permanent these grand ideas and principles. The USA was built on grand ideas, values and principles inherent in the Declaration of Independence, the constitution, the bill of rights. It built a government and institutions to hold these principles of freedom, equality, justice and fairness.
But when governments and institutions become corrupt and slowly let go of the values at their foundation, they begin to decay. And before too long they are dying and are ready for transformation. The old forms must die so new forms can be built again on grand values and inspirations.
We have Aquarian Age values burting into our world. As they burst into our world, the old and corrupt are blown away to make room. Events that occur this year will be reflective of this transformational process into a New Paradigm and Age.
Are we not ready to live in this diverse Earth community in Oneness, with respect and tolerance for those in differing cultures? Are we not ready to stop dominating “weaker” peoples and cultures in order to control them and their resources? Are we not ready to honor our souls and spiritual selves without the control by religions that have lost the spirit they were founded on? Are we not ready to honor our Earth and its environment, and stop using and abusing it and its creatures? Can we now build a world founded on love and truth instead of fear and lies? Are we ready to heal our human family and transform our dysfunctional ways?
We are in the process of being tested, and the tests will get more powerful and challenging this year. If we choose Life and Health, Love and Truth, we will see more and more magic, more synchronicities, more miracles, even through all the disasters and challenges. We will experience love and affection coming back to us, greater desires to be healthy and happy.
This spring will especially bring us more challenges with our economy and with political challenges between countries and peoples. The Middle East is especially susceptible to drums of war this spring and summer. More natural calamities will continue as well as the strange climate changes that especially occurred this past winter. Snow fell in Rome and Florida and southern California and Texas. Here in Maine February has seen mostly temperatures in the ’40s with very little snow.
Expect the unexpected, remember our paradigm is shifting. Once people believed the Sun revolved around the Earth and the Earth was flat. How we view our world and our Universe will change appreciably over the next several years.
Astrology Forecast for February 28-March 6
Our new week begins with a Full Moon on Sunday at 11:38 AM in the eastern time zone of the USA. This Full Moon has the Sun in Pisces and the Moon in Virgo. Pisces represents the inner spiritual dimension while Virgo represents the outer material dimension. Both signs are yin or “negative” in their charge. They both represent service. Pisces prompts us to surrender our ego and its control, while Virgo prompts us to perfect and purify our egos. Together they help us to be more humble and grateful, knowing how difficult life can be at times. Use this full moon to simplify your life, to be more connected to your better values.
Mars has been retrograde since the middle of December in 2009. While it is retrograde we are going through a process that helps us to know better what we really want and where we need to go and direct our lives. During this retrograde time we can get taken off our usual track so we can look differently at our lives. As the picture of our life changes, we are forced to reevaluate our life. Then we can get more in touch with what we REALLY want and where we want to go in our lives.
Mars soon goes back direct- on March 10. After that life picks up steam of movement forward. Soon afterward, on March 20 there is the new beginning of Spring Equinox, Aries time of year. It will be a Spring to be long remembered.
Talk to you again next week,
