This week the planets combine in relatively mild ways.
In contrast, summer 2019 has been really intense, violent, with strong breezes of chaos swirling in.
For those not privy to the bigger picture, events in the world would strongly suggest coming attractions of Doom and Gloom.
For many the world events during summer 2019 have brought with them such feelings of Doom and Gloom: the Trump presidency and its seemingly destined trip through an impeachment investigation; serious stock market and economy downward plunges promising a big recession; rhetoric for war between India/Pakistan, Iran/USA, China/USA, and Russia/USA; many mass killings in the USA; culture war between the right and left looking like a potential Civil War on the way. In Portland Oregon today is a big confrontation between far right and far left groups. Israel is on the verge of major escalation with Palestine now.
And though Trump will not admit it, the danger of conflict between North Korea and the USA has grown this summer with NK blasting out many new rocket launches.
And more than anything else, the world’s leaders show us more and more how they are immature, self serving, unfair, corrupt; and feeling they are privileged and entitled.
The Epstein story, which ended his life this past week, has shown us that too many celebrities, wealthy people, and influential people in our world are without true moral fiber or concern for the most innocent of our human family, the children.
How can one, at this time, justify keeping the old paradigm and age alive?
It is time, as the heavens show us, to let go of that old age and paradigm in our minds, hearts, and consciousness.
We, as a collective, are in decay, as was Rome during the early portion of the now passing Age of Pisces.
As we decay, we need to come back to the lofty the ideals of “we the people”, freedom of the individual, “all people are created equal”, self determination for peoples; and a belief in a Diversity that can be naturally formed into a family of Unity for all.
Love and Truth are there always for us to embrace and live by. if we so choose and commit to.
The old programming from the decaying old age, shows us we live in a dog-eat-dog world that forces us to care only for us and ours.
Sure that may look to be true at times, but it is only true because we have bought into it, made it our reality.
This passing summer has blasted into our faces the cold reality of what we have allowed, what we have enabled.
We must take responsibility for our world, and truly believe in “we the people”.
Yes the old economy is dying. Yes the old power structures in the world are crumbling. And yes we will know what to do as things unfold.
Let love reign in your heart; let truth, “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” be the leader in your consciousness.
World events will continue to pour into our world as we move beyond Summer Eclipse Season 2019.
We now know we must deal with reality and the serious issues we have been shown need to be resolved.
Impeachment, the Economy, the growing Civil War, guns and gun control, frequent mass murders, Climate Change, etc. will continue to wake us up to what we need to do to evolve into the Age of Aquarius.
This week, as previously stated, is relatively mild planetarily speaking.
Since the Full Moon in Aquarius last week, we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Leo New Moon on July 31, a new moon day that included Mercury going back Direct.
Last week we reached climax from that lunar cycle at the Full Moon in Aquarius. Energies have been at their most intense surrounding the time of that Full Moon late on Thursday.
Now during the “comedown” we gather ourselves while doing some cleaning, clearing, and acceptance of current reality.
The move into Virgo energies will assist us in that process.
Mars leaves big hearted, often big ego Leo in order to enter the humble, efficient, reality facing energy of Virgo on Sunday August 18
Mars in Virgo can be very to the point direct, which can feel judgmental. When healthy, it expresses in a way that is quite constructive and fostering of being a master in one’s endeavors When more toxic and cynical, it expresses in ways that demean and humiliate others or more likely oneself.
You can use this Mars in Virgo to help you better discern what is wrong, what needs to be fixed, and how to fix it. What has happened this summer, and what can we do to make things better.
Mars in Virgo takes action to work and get things done. Negative Mars in Virgo is obsessive and won’t let anxiety go.
Venus enters Virgo on the 21st. Venus in Virgo attracts people and situations in a real and grounded manner. It prefers simplicity and being of service. It is humble, gentle, and sometimes self effacing.
Then on August 23 the Sun begins its annual journey through Virgo. That means it is time to go back to school; get more serious about work; fix what needs to be fixed; put everything in order; and simplify your life.
Venus conjuncts Mars in Virgo on Saturday the 24th, to show us that the yang and the yin, the male and the female, are in accordance with making a life simple, humble and gently real.
The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Friday the 23rd as the Sun goes into Virgo that day. That 4th quarter Moon is in Gemini, so the mind and nervous system may be in overdrive.
That means anxiety, mental obsession, and obsessiveness may seek an entry into your consciousness and mind for a few days. Keep a lid on it. Great countermeasures are meditation and Nature and Sky watching.
The world is turning into crisis mode, but you can stay trusting the process and the big picture no matter what. We are undoubtedly moving imminently into the Age of Aquarius.
The next few years are crisis years, years of intense transition from an old world to a new world.
Trump people wear MAGA hats expressing a desire to make America great again.
What is happening is an attempt by those people to make America what they believe it used to be.
You do know that cannot happen, don’t you?
The world of caucasian men running the world (not just this country) with the obedient women and children strapped to them in undying loyal support is in its death throes.
Minorities will be the majority in 20 years or so. Women are getting empowered and nothing will stop that. Globalism (bringing the world closer together) is inevitable.
Nationalism, any kind, will have a short life span. Capitalism in its current unfair state is in the process of being transformed. More “socialism” will be added to the economic mix, no matter what.
Wars to further one’s aspirations for resources, wealth, and dominance will not last much longer.
The only concern I have is in not knowing how dark and ugly it will get during the transition.
Like a Mother giving birth, it is unknown what the process will be like on the way to the birth. Some are easy births, some are unbelievably difficult.
We cannot control nature during its moments of crisis, like in birth and death.
But we can learn to have trust and faith in its wisdom and the higher meaning it always brings with it.
Yes, get ready for the ride to get much more bumpy soon.
But likely not this week so much.
Till next week,
