Today, at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Uranus Direct, we shift our gears and open up to more fully embrace the changes. Mercury Goes Direct this week Tuesday to also help us to move forward.
The last few weeks we have been experiencing the Eclipse Season while Mercury has been retrograde. It is good to keep in mind that we are also experiencing the days getting darker and darker on the way to a Winter Solstice on December 21/22.
It has been a very intense period, when we have been shaken out of our usual comfort zones, and challenged to let go and trust the process of nature and the Universe.
It is so easy in the modern world to go on cruise control with our lives, to live in habits, and to ignore the fact that there is deep mystery of life that has much influence over us.
At these times of great planetary shifting, we are made to be aware of the fact that there are powerful forces of the Universe influencing our consciousness and lives.
Life is not meant to be just a casual journey through material experience. We have souls and those souls are connected to the Great Mystery.
We come here to Earth for a reason, not just to have the American dream of material comfort.
Our souls reveal to us that there is Oneness, that all is connected, that we are connected to one another, to nature, and to the Universe.
Our material bodies, which do separate us one from another, have a tendency in our current human paradigm, to assist us in ignoring the fact we have souls.
We are taught only to trust and believe in that which we can see and touch. The inner spiritual dimension is not truly honored and is considered by many to be “wu-wu” or foolish and to be ridiculed. We are taught to approach all our issues or challenges in linear, “scientific” terms only.
If we have an illness, we see it in very linear terms, trying to fix it like fixing a car.
But our souls teach us wholeness and oneness, that our spirits, minds, soulls and bodies are connected, and that they are constantly interacting with one another.
To try to fix what is wrong with your body without healing your soul or soothing your mind or looking for the messages from nature and the Universe does not truly heal the situation. Instead it makes you reliant on mainstream thought and medicine from the old world we are leavng behind.
Religion from the old world does talk of souls, but mainly in the context of being moral or good so you can go to heaven not hell.
Soul in the new world is not about judgement, but about connection to the Universe and its principles, messages, cycles, and energies.
As you move through these challenging times now, concentrate on releasing your grip to the old world and its fear, guilt, rules, and judgements that imprison your soul in its programming.
Open instead to your inner wisdom, to the guidance of the Universe as seen through signs and symbols and sychronicities.
All that is happening to you is meant to assist your soul’s journey to more light and truth and love. Pain is in ratio to how much you resist the movement forward into a new world.
So now at the turning of the wheels of the Universe during this eclipse season, let go of the false security of an old world that is dying, an old paradigm for living on the Earth that is dying. Open to the beauty that is You in your Authentic Self, connected to all other authentic selves- on the way to an Aquarian Age.
You can see all the freedom and liberation movements happening all over the world, including now here in the United States with OWS and in Russia the last few days also.
There is no stopping this movement forward into an Aquarian Age. It is as destined as the changing of seasons in the year. This a seasonal change of the Universe, from a Pisces Age begun over 2000 years ago to the cusp of an Aquarian Age we are now on.
Yes there will be much chaos and trouble in the greater world coming, but do your best to not hook into the dramas of fear, hatred, demonizing of enemies, and general mistrust of others and the world. There will be explosive changes coming our way in 2012, but we each need to remind ourselves we have been born at this time for a reason.
Ask your self why you are here now at such an important time on the Earth. What is your role? It can simply mean you are here to raise conscious children for a new world, or to spead more postive and loving energy to others. It can mean that you, as you evolve and transform your life into the Aquarian Age, are becoming a cell in the body of the collective of souls who are creating this new world.
This coming week, we begin to slowly move out of the Eclipse season, as we passed the last eclipse today December 10. And finally Mercury goes direct this Tuesday evening. Clarity gets stronger, the confusion lifts, the strange zone many of us have been in begins to pass.
But it will not be time to spread your wings and fly as we are moving into darker and darker days leading up to the Winter Solstice on December 22 at 12:30 AM on the east coast. It is at 9:30 PM on the west coast of the USA.
At this time of year, as the darkness settles in, we appreciate the blessings and people we do have in our lives, and we reach out our hearts to those who are suffering, alone, or are losing hope. We know they are a part of each one of us, as each of us has felt despair or pain.
Yet as we leave the eclipses and Mercury Rerograde behind, the intensity subsides and we begin to settle into and integrate the changes that have come our way.
We are in the holiday season now, and many people are able to still appreciate the deeper meaning of this season, beyond the commercial rate race.
See you next week,
