Powerful and gusty winds are gathering now, so to speak. We are getting ourselves ready for the upcoming stormy eclipses. There are 3 of them this summer .
The first one is this week on Thursday July 12 at 10:48 PM EDT. It is a partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. At the same time, Guardian of the Underworld Pluto will be making an almost exact opposition to that eclipsed New Moon. The New Moon is at 20+ degrees of Cancer, while Pluto will be at 20+ degrees of Capricorn that day: a potential perfect storm.
The sign Cancer is an archetypal Mother, of the Divine Feminine, It can be very nurturing and protective, with desire to take care of others. It must, however, make sure not to hover over with over-protectiveness.
By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful force penetrating deeply into the core of something or someone, and making things passionate and Real. It must make sure to not be “too real” or destructive. But it does need to be destructive enough to put to rest a dying Chapter of life; and that makes room for a Phoenix to rise up with new life.
So this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer this week is like a strongly protected cocoon or womb. And Pluto in Capricorn is like a ruthless energy that wants to destroy the protective shell that has held back spirit, life and passion.
It is soon time to begin the process of leaving the Garden of protection, to cut the umbilic cord, to rise up with the dawning.
Pluto sitting opposite this Solar Eclipse in Cancer will provide a reality check for our individual lives, our families, and certainly the United States.
That which is outliving its intended life span, whether that is a soul, an object, and most importantly a passing chapter of one’s life, will be challenged to let go and allow the death which precedes the birth.
If a couple has finished raising their child, who is now ready to embark on their life journey, they now are in a transition between two Chapters of their lives.
And so it is best if they look to see if there is a new “contract” to create a continued life together- or not.
In the greater world, we are experiencing a death of the old America, contrary to the MAGA culture that believes we will return to a time that has passed us by quite naturally.
That death is not going to be any easy one, as some of the “guardians” of the old world will lie, cheat, and steal in order to keep the old country and world paradigm alive and with continued privilege.
No matter how we view the people from the MAGA world, we need to listen, not dismiss and feel hatred for.
We do not need to build a world that will then abuse power the same way. it has been. White men, corporate ways, etc. are not the enemy.
The “enemy” is the part inside each of us that unfairly judges others, who are different than us, and seeks to make some people better or worse than others.
So now, early this week we are in the waning part of the lunar cycle. It is a time to let go of what we need to let go.
Last quarter Moons, especially when close to the New Moon, are perfect times to release and let go. What are you ready to shed in your life, what has outlived its purpose?
While still in the last quarter Moon phase, Jupiter changes from Retrograde to Direct Tuesday July 10.
You should get an energetic boost from this, even before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 12th.
Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand into more passion and intensity, igniting one’s deeper soul and instincts. Just be careful not to set yourself up for any abuses again or to be abusive yourself.
Scorpio is power, and Jupiter in Scorpio can certainly help one to be more empowered and passionately assertive.
That Jupiter movement to Direct will expand Jupiter’s influence, yet the main course is still the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.
Be careful to make boundaries around your emotions, not to lose your center and integrity.
The culture wars have been heating up, and will certainly boil over during Eclipse Season.
When you look at the people in leadership roles in our country and world it looks pretty bad.
I know it feels frightening sometimes to contemplate the old world and its economy crashing and burning. Would you choose instead keeping this world Trump wants to build?
What if crash and burn is the only way we can rid ourselves of selfish ego driven leaders and soul dead institutions and people, and can transform our human condition, our environment, and our way of treating one another, would you want it that way?
We are looking potentially at a great amount of chaos if all falls down. And if it doesn’t, the tyrant loving president of the USA may build a walled-in America that would be really difficult to transform. And it would become a military/corporate world even worse than the current military/corporate world.
We are at a major American and world crossroads. One way or another we are on the precipice of major American and world transformation.
Israel, Palestine, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Syria are lands that are in danger and in flux. So much is coming to a head now in these places.
The economy, with over priced bubble homes, poor health care programs, school debt that is really depressing for many, and rampant greed, needs huge change.
And much will shake up during Summer Eclipse Season.
Keep up the meditation so you can stay connected and centered during this Eclipse Season.
Have you noticed how veils are being lifted in consciousness, and how visitors, apparently from other dimensions, are sneaking into meditation more and more?
We are not merely witnessing the Fall of the Empire. We can also open our hearts and minds to other realities, realities aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into together.
If we do not let fear, hatred, cynicism, and politics keep us down, we allow ourselves to open doors and windows into new consciousness and new possibilities.
Be discerning who you spend your time with. Do they really see you and appreciate you? Do they suck your life spirit like a vampire? Do they constantly pull on you to give them what they want from you? Do they make fun of your spirituality?
It is important we each protect ourselves from toxic energy.
Take the ride of this Summer Eclipse Season 2018. Keep yourself centered inside and open to what your soul and the Universe wants to show you.
Till next week,
