Shifting winds this week, with many notable planetary movements.
As the week begins, Mercury is still retrograde, and the Moon is in its darkening phase.
On Tuesday the 19th energies and people intensify, as Mars moves out of “together” and balanced Libra and into instinctual and powerful Scorpio.
Then on Wednesday the 20th, there is some mental relief as Mercury finally goes back Direct!
And the light begins to show itself through the cracks in our fears, as the Sun moves into expansive and uplifting Sagittarius.
The next week on the 26th, there is the light of inspiration pouring in with the New Moon in Sagittarius a day before other-worldly Neptune shifts back to Direct.
Around that time, the first breezes of a new Eclipse Season blow into our collective consciousness and our lives.
The actual first eclipse this “season” is on Christmas Day December 25, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.
As we have alerted everyone, this should be a very powerful and important Eclipse Season for personal and global life.
The changes internally and externally are to transform us to be more aligned with the energies and meaning of the new paradigm from the Age of Aquarius.
Impeachment events; an economy in the danger zone of a dream-world bubble; war cries from the Middle East; and increased enemy making of China and Russia; our world is on the precipice of enormous transformational changes.
The old Paradigm is so obviously in decay. Its fuel is fear, greed, power abuses and separateness.
The old Paradigm is run with materialism as its guiding star, not truly believing that all the dots in the Universe are connected by higher meaning and love.
Eventually any who give up the notion that we can live in a world guided by the stars of Truth and Love, will go from skepticism to cynicism as time goes by.
And that cynicism breeds corruption, power abuses, greed, and hatreds, as the lights dim before totally going out.
And when grave life difficulties begin to take over, as they are now in the greater world and many personal lives, many people have breaking points into hopelessness and despair.
They stop believing in the god(s) they used to believe in, feel abandoned by them, and fall into the trap of being a hateful and non-trusting self identified victim.
For many this is their “dark night of the soul”. For others, hope, trust, and faith just permanently leave.
Our whole world is entering such a Soul and Spiritual challenge.
The old paradigm, governed by materialism, is in its death throes. As it dies, so do hopes for great wealth and privilege. And for many this ends up in cynicism, because the rewards for playing by the old paradigm’s rules no longer bring the promised rewards.
People losing jobs or relationships can bring many to mental hopelessness.
This is when transformation shows up. Some believe in its promises and change their lives accordingly. Others eventually give up as they cannot give up the old dreams of what was promised as a better life.
The new world promises deeper connections, greater authenticity, a meaningful life, a sense of purpose, Love, community, inner peace, real Truth, connection to soul and spirit, self love, healing, a knowing that All is connected on this sacred Earth that resides in this wondrous and magic filled Universe.
What is here now and coming soon will challenge our human family to evolve faster and further than it has previously in our current lifetime.
This week Mars goes into Scorpio on Tuesday the 19th. This stokes our instinctual desire nature into more passion. It motivates us to go deeper and see truth we may have previously avoided. It opens us to share our secrets or secret desires. It takes us off the fence of indecision, especially so after Mercury goes back Direct later this week.
Mars in Scorpio will also push some to give up peace efforts and instead to go full force. This means more chance for war for those leaders still controlled by the old paradigm.
Mars stays in Scorpio until January 3 2020 when it goes into Sagittarius.
Mercury goes Direct on Wednesday November 20 at 2:12 PM EDT. There should be a sense of relief as issues begin to clarify and direction begins to show itself. But full clarity may not appear for a week to 10 days after.
And on Friday November 22, the Sun moves out of the depths of Pluto-guided Scorpio and into the heights of Jupiter-guided Sagittarius.
Energies seek to rise upwards in your body too, into heart, throat, third eye. and crown chakras.
New inspiration seeks expression; answers appear where only questions used to be; higher meaning is sought; adventures become more attractive; intuition gets stronger; the glass of life begins feeling more half full again.
Be careful, however, not to leap before you look. Sometimes, after feeling kinda depressed, we can get carried away by renewed feelings of hope.
Remember that even though Mercury has gone back Direct, the Moon is in its last quarter phase getting darker and darker until the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 26.
And the Sun is showing less light as it moves closer and closer to Winter Solstice on December 21, just 4 days before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.
So the increasing darkness, even as the Sun goes into Sagittarius, should make us somewhat cautious still. At this time of year there is both a feeling of joy and upliftment (Sagittarius and holidays) and darkening feelings connected to Winter Solstice.
The coming eclipses and planetary movements promise important shifts of energy patterns, and a releasing of stuck and blocked energies. Endings could be quite dramatic, even as the seeds of a soon to to be flying Phoenix are planted.
There may be a tarot Tower Card on the world’s horizon, bringing down structures that represent the old world paradigm.
