This is a Saturday July 2 UPDATE on the Solar Eclipse:
Much of the increasing pressure and intensity should be subsiding now or soon. This does not mean that this eclipse season is done. The releasing of energy stage has now begun, as the intensifying of energy stage is lessening. And events that are a result of the eclipses will roll out over the next couple months. This eclipse is a New Moon, so it is a new dawn today.
The eclipses took us out of our same-old, same-old status quo postures, and shook up our usual balance. For many there has been crisis to deal with, and soon there will be a clearing of the dust after the storm. What was damaged in our psyches and lives? What breakthroughs occurred in our psyches, belief systems and lives? What new events or people came into our lives? What have we let go of? What have we been forced to change, what do we choose to change?
It is now time to get more clarity, to look for direction, to gain deeper insight into the recent shifts in your life. What has come into your life recently is very meaningful because of the profound planetary aspects synchronizing wih these events. There is much to learn about your self and life now.
Perhaps you have woken up to a new reality, have let go of illusions that keep you separated from your authentic self and a more authentic life. You are getting to know your true self better, and letting go of your little ego’s need to dominate the natural movement of your self and life.
During this Cancer lunar cycle work on your inner values and inner reality, your beliefs, your inner needs. Do not push your self forward before you are ready. Take the time to evaluate and reflect.
In the greater world, we learned during the eclipse season that our economy is teetering. The crisis in Greece has temporarily subsided, as the eclipses are passing; but that crisis, as well as the greater economic crisis has only been put on hold. Soon it will spiral downward again. The old world’s hold on the wheels of the Universe is always only temporary, as Nature is stronger than man’s will. We can only be kept alive on support systems for so long, not forever.
And the same is true in the Middle East. The flotillas to Gaza have been temporarily stopped. These boats are meant to shine a light on the illegal and abusive treatment of Palestinains by the Israelis. The Israelis have bought out the Greek government, which has stopped the travel of the ships from their ports for no apparent reason. Greece is certainly in the spotlight now- for the economy and for the Middle East crisis. It is meaningful that Greece was the seed of western civilization, of Europe and America, as western civilization is on the verge of enormous transformation, into eventual equality with the other members of the world community aligned with an Aquarian Age.
And now the fires of New Mexico seem to be safe from the nuclear dangers of Los Alamos. But the warnings of our karma from what happened there are alive and well. We need to really take a deeper look at what we have built in this world with all the weapons of mass destruction. It is homicidal and suicidal. We must collectively find a way to end their existence before they end ours.
Important events in the world will soon be released that are connected to the pressures that built up during the eclipses. We will stay tuned.
This Friday July 1 at 4:54 AM EDT there is a very powerful New Moon in Cancer. It is many times stronger than the usual annual Cancer New Moon because it is also a Solar Eclipse. And it is many times more powerful than the usual Solar Eclipse Cancer New Moon because it also forms a Grand Cross with Pluto in Capricorn opposite the Cancer New Moon, and Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Libra square the New Moon. And since all these planets are in Cardinal signs (which is the first month of every season), there is a strong wave of energy taking us all into a New Season of our lives as humans here on Earth.
This strong new wave of energy will break down anything in its way, so many people are now having experiences of breakdowns in various parts of their lives. These strong frequencies of change, healing, and transformation are also bringing some breakthroughs into new horizons in their lives.
For many there is first much intensity and challenges. This eclipse is a Grand Cross and so it is pulling in 4 directions at the same time. Something has to break or give way. Something has to blow open, to explode. We have been in the energy field of this eclipse all week long and the intensity is building.
If you feel frustrations now that build to a very intense degree, keep in mind it is connected to this eclipse. The storm will pass, so do not let your self get too overwhelmed or angy or hurt or anxious or depressed.
Stay centered as much as possible, and do not let fear take over. Go through the process without coming to conclusions in your mind. Wait for the intensity to subside first so you can see with clear eyes later. For some the intensity will break before the actual eclipse, but for most it will intensify all the way up to Friday and for a some days more. The results and breakthroughs may take months to unfold.
Remember it is time to ultimately move forward in a big way. This eclipse is not the end of the big planetary events. And remember we are also ending a big time cycle according to the Mayan Calendar. Most say this will happen in December of 2012. But Carl Calleman, a very respected Mayan expert, says October 28 2011. And that date coordinates well with the anticipated close encounter with comet Elenin in October of 2011. Comets are messengers of the Universe and harbingers of great change.
So big shakeups and change will not end after the eclipse season.
Expect the world economy to transform greatly during this year. Expect there to be explosive change in the Middle East. Expect the natural disasters to continue.
And is not noteworthy that recent disasters have put the spotlight on nuclear energy? There was the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, which caused much damage to the nuclear reactor there and there is still much danger from nuclear radioactivity. And Japan is where the USA dropped the nuclear bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in August 1945.
And now the fires are burning close to Los Alamos, a nuclear facilty in New Mexico that builds nuclear weapons. And Los Alamos is where the bombs that killed over 300,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were built. in 1945
And in Nebraska, just outside Omaha, flood waters are surrounding a nuclear plant there, another potential danger.
What is the Universe telling us? What do we need to do about nuclear energy and nuclear bombs that can destroy us all?
What the Universe telling us last year, during another eclipse season, when the oil rig exploded near New Orleans and destroyed so much wild life in the Ocean? Was it telling us to take a deeper look at our energy consumption of oil? Was it a wake up call to be more safe or to go faster to provide energy alternatives?
And in your personal life as things break down, what is the message from the Universe?
Is it to reealuate your health issues, to look closer at your relationships, to reexamine your work and career, to think of changing your home. Is it to change your belief systems and your attitudes?
Whatever is being transformed, it is time to open up to a new cycle of your life, a movement toward personal evolution in alignment with our collective evolution into an Aquarian Age.
As the challenges move into your personal life, avoid feeling doom and gloom or personal failure or blaming of others. Do your best to not let fear take over your mind and emotional state.
Remember all happens for a reason, everything is part of a bigger picture, a picture that is not always so easy to determine at first.
Aries, Libra, Capricorn, and especially Cancers are the most affected by this eclipse, especially if you born in very late June or early July; or also if you are born in late September or early October; or if you are born in late December or early January; or if you are born in late March or early April. And if you have any planets in the range of 2-12 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn you will be motivated to enter a world of changing seasons of your life.
This is a time in personal lives and in the greater world for more turmoil than usual. But these challenges could be the impetus for many to break out of lives stuck and patterns that frustrate your need for growth. It is time, even if it may not feel like it now, to grow and progress spiritually. Life is not just about material concerns.
We are souls incarnated into bodies, and are meant to learn, to experience, to evolve. We have incarnated at a time very important to the evolution of humanity on planet Earth. We are changing ages from a Pisces Age to an Aquarian Age. Consciousness is changing for each of us to be in alignment with this shift. Let go of seeing your life as you have been programmed to see it from the Powers that Be of an old and dying Age.
Let go of the beliefs and attitudes that hold you back from living from your authentic self and living a more purposeful life.
This may be a difficult time for many now as we go through a most intense part of the eclipse season with the Cardinal Grand Cross Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer now.
The World as you know it is leaving. A new and better Aquarian Age is developing. The transition may feel like labor pains for some, but the birth is on the way for our world and for you too.
