We are on the cusp of the first of 3 eclipses, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini on June 1. Experiences are calling us to transform and change rather quickly now. People and/or situations seem to push us now to the edge of our issues. In an accelerated way, we can now move through old stuck places in our psyches and lives.
So many people now are already dancing in the eclipse rhythms. They are meeting new people who are dramatically shifting their lives, or losing or starting new adventures or jobs or home situations, going to new schools, falling fast in love. We are starting a New Season of our lives. The last of the three eclipses, on July 1, a Solar Eclipse New Moon Cardinal Grand Cross, truly symbolizes the movement into a new season.
Last summer we experienced a Grand Cross Lunar Eclipse and a Cardinal t-square of planets in the very early degrees of the cardinal signs Aries, Libra, and Capricorn. There is a cardinal t-square in the same signs now, and will graduate to a Grand Cross when the New Moon Eclipse falls in Cancer on July 1.
Cardinal signs are the first signs of new seasons in nature every year, and symbolically that major eclipse forming a cardinal grand cross symbolically shows us our human family is now moving into a major New Season, a new major passage and era of living on Earth. This all neatly synchronizes with the movement into a New Aquarian Age and a New World according to the Mayan Calendar.
The commonly held position of transition into the New World by the Mayan Calendar is December 21 2012. But Carl Calleman, a very respected Mayan researcher believes the old calendar ends on October 28, 2011. Interestingly, a recently discovered comet Elenin will make its closest contact with Earth on October 17 2011.
Comets have always been associated with major passages for humanity on Planet Earth, and its closeness to Earth around the time Carl Calleman believes is at the changing of Ages is interesting at least.
So while we realize how ridiculous it was for the preacher last week to predict Rapture on May 21 2011, it is important to note that many signs are pointing to great transformational change now. Expect this year to bring dramatic change to both our personal lives and to the greater world we all live in together.
Some are believing that a major UFO incident is on the way, and perhaps that will happen soon. Otheres are believing that at the turn of ages we all are gaining greater psychic abilities and that we will gain greater ability to communicate with one another telepathically.
No matter what exactly happens, we are truly going through a major passage together, entering a new era, a new paradigm and age.
And you in your personal life are doing the same thing. Old patterns and energies, old attitudes and beliefs are wanting to die now. There is more of a sense of urgency to do so. This is happening because the speed of evolution is spiking faster now, most especially during this current eclipse season, which is in effect now and will last into the summer.
If your heart has taken you to love someone or something now, it is for a reason, but maybe not the reason you want it to be. Live in the moment as much as possible with it, without going too far into the future. Be present for your issues, and for your inner voice to be heard. Do your best to not be swept up out of your authentic soul self. Do your best to recognize it when you are automatically reacting and overreacting in old ways, according to old patterns. These old ways keep you out of authentic ways of being and relating.
You may be pushed during this eclipse season out of your normal balance and habits. This is to give you the opportunity to recognize and then to release or transform those old beliefs and patterns that keep you and your life stuck. You are meant to instead connect to your deeper soul, to your free mind and heart, to your authentic self. Your return there will connect you to the Universe, will align you to your best self, will bring you the guidance you need now or at least to the people who can give you the needed guidance now.
For some this will be a painful process. For others this will be a big awakening and a fast move through your issues. For all this is an initiation into a new season and era for your life, which is connected to the evolution of our human family here on Earth.
The old ways are not working anymore. They are destroying our Earth, its creatures, the balance of Nature, our connections to our souls and to one another. We are ripe and ready for the changes now, and this is why we are experiencing these challenges, these breakdowns of old ways, these breakthoughs into the new.
Let your heart lead the way, but keep your head as its trusted consultant. Our hearts have been so wounded that they are prone to keep bringing us back to situations and people that remind us of our traumas and disappointments. So listen to your head’s version of events to make sure you are on the right track.
And watch for the signs that come from the Universe to light your way. But remember that signs and synchronicities do not tell us what to do. They tell us to pay special attention, and then to go through the process of finding out what the signs and synchronicities mean for us.
We are now in the Eclipse season, and the first one is this coming Wednesday June 1 at 5:03 PM Eastern Daylight time. It is at 11+ degrees of Gemini. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and as such a time of powerful new beginnings. It is especially a time of new beginnings around learning and education, around communication and relationship, around using your head, around receiving and delivering messages. Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini.
Later in the week, Neptune will go retrograde and bring us to a need to surrender more to our inner world, to the unseen world of soul and spirit. It may bring with it some spacy and confusing energies also.
