We are now in the middle of a twilight zone, begun November 24/25, when Mercury went retrograde and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius occurred. On December 10 there will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, and on December 13 Mercury goes back direct.
This time period, from November 24-December 13 is the time we stay in this twilight zone. The haze should begin to clear after that. Then as we pass through the Winter Solstice on December 21 and a New Moon in Capricorn on December 24, we should be on the other side of the insecurity.
Sorting through information to find solution and answers can be difficult now. The approaching Lunar Eclipse is in information and communication carrying Gemini. Messenger of the Gods Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini. It is now in often confusing retrograde. So this is why information and communication issues are up in our face, and why there is fogginess about it all.
Sagittarius, where the Solar Eclipse occurred and where the Sun opposes the Moon for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini, is about finding understanding, answers, and solutions.
But the natural way of sorting through information to find solutions is confused by Mercury Retrograde, and the issues are intensified because we are in an Eclipse Season. Eclipse times also tend to cause breakdowns and possible breakthroughs also.
So all is a mess now for many people and worse a nightmare for some.
It is best now to not jump to any conclusions too fast. Using information in a strictly left brain logical way is not best now either. One is best combining one’s linear mind with more right brain intuitive thought also. Keep a spiritual perspective and do not get too caught up in negative thinking, which is often masked as “getting real”. Realistic means looking for your truth, not what is conventionally true. Old ways of thinking often come up during Merccury Retrograde.
Remember that we are being moved by Universal cycles into new consciousness and lives, and OLD RULES do not apply anymore.
That does not mean you use non conventional or spiritual thinking as an excuse to avoid truth and escape reality. It means you will not allow your self to deny what you KNOW inside your self to be true. Of course now it may be difficult to know this truth, but keep firm about not allowing negative fear based thinking to rule you.
Your free mind and heart must be trusted more and more now as we move out of an old paradigm and age. It is true it is not always good to move too fast, as you can get overwhelmed and feel quite insecure. But these powerful aspects challenge us to see the light of truth, not the doom of truth.
The Universe brings us situations that assist us to move in more healthy and whole directions, but the process is not always easy.
These times of challenging planetary waves are meant to help us to let go of the old ways and patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. They are meant to help us to trust ourselves and our Universe more, and to come into our authentic selves and a more meaningful and purposeful life.
Let go of the negative programming that has kept you in fear of living your life alive and satisfied. During these eclipse seasons the challenges to stay on our path sometimes get strong, but we are getting these challenges in order to firm our resolve. The residuals you hold of negative thinking can be let go of now, so also let go of giving your power away to friends or partners or authority figures or conventional wisdom.
Instead search your heart and soul and mind for what is true. And in that process you trust your own inner wisdom and empower yourself.
This does not mean you have to go it alone. You can listen to people whose wisdom resonates with your sense of truth, whose wisdom you can sense is for the purpose of truly supporting you and your journey.
Family and old friends often try to keep a person in old boxes and want to see them in a familiar light. This does not mean they are bad people. It only means they have insecurities of their own which preclude their ability to be clear and healthy and to truly see YOU.
You do not necessarily need to let them go, but you will not be able to change them either. The important issue to examine is if you can be with them and still be in your truth and power.
If not you will need to consider seeing them less often, or at the least keeping the conversation on safe ground.
So this week we are moving toward the Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini next Saturday December 10 at 9:36 AM EST. On that same day Uranus will permeating the frequencies of our psyches as it goes direct that same day.
There is great opportunity as we approach next weekend for breakthroughs, for new inventive and original ways of seeing and thinking. Keep an open mind and heart so the Universe can provide you with the viewpoint you need.
In the greater world, events tend to bring many people into fear. The Powers that Were still carry much weight in our world. But they are slowly losing their firm grip over people’s minds, hearts, and lives.
As we each claim our inherent right to freedom and self determination, we make clear intention to join with others who know the Earth and world belong to “God’s children”, all of us, not to those who are greedy and power hungry.
It has been told that Christ said that the meek shall inherit the Earth. Meek does not mean week and powerless. It means that we do not seek to dominate and control. We seek instead to connect and make relationship, to heal and transform the human community on Earth to be one of love and compassion and service.
It is the foundation we need to usher in the Aquarian Age.
