We have a lot more to go before Spring Eclipse Season 2013 is over. There is a third eclipse on May 24/25, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius. There also is another exact pass of powerful and transformational Uranus square Pluto on May 20.
Many personal lives during this Eclipse Season have become very unsettled. People have seen big red flags go up over various issues in their lives. Some have experienced threats to their usual ways of doing things, new doubts or breakdowns in their relationships, challenges over their security, jobs, or careers.
Some are seeing new possibilities now, breakthroughs out of old stuck places have given new hope.
So many know they are in transition in their lives, ending an old chapter, and moving into a new phase of life.
If something is not right in your life, if it is not aligned with the evolving YOU on your soul path, then it is ripe to be released. Can you hold onto that which is not aligned for you? Sometimes yes, but perhaps that means you will not progress and evolve as you would like. Security or change? Which way to turn?
If what you are hanging onto for security no longer has any spirit or life in it anymore, then you know what price you have to pay to hold on. Your soul will continue to die, your light will get more dim.
On the other hand, if the change will bring you to complete chaos in your life, with no practical way forward, then how can you go forward?
Perhaps the situation or relationship does not have to be let go. Instead maybe old beliefs or dysfunctional patterns of behavior or communication can be transformed, so there is a rebirth and a relighting of the flame of spirit.
But if there is a need to truly let go of the relationship or job or home, then the best scenario, one that is usually what happens when change is right, is that you let go of that which has lost its light for you; and you make strong intention to the Universe and your self to make new possibilities work for you.
If what you are choosing is right for your evolving soul, then soon you will find the Universe and your own ingenuity bringing you the practical solutions you require. Maybe the new situation will not have everything you want, but will have enough of what you desire for you to take the leap of faith.
As you make your personal life changes during this Spring Eclipse Season, you are aligned with what is happening in the “heavens” too as the planetary aspects show us accelerating change. Of course the greater world is also in the process of big change.
As you watch our dysfunctional government, as you watch our lives get more and more controlled by big money interests, as you watch people commit abusive and violent acts on one another, as you see different religions and countries and peoples filled with such venom for one another, as you witness more and more people escaping into their own personal bubbles of drugs or alcohol or electronics, etc.; the proof that our world is ripe for powerful transformation is all around us.
The Eclipse Season began at the New Moon in Aries on April 10. 5 days later there was the Boston Marathon bombing. On April 25, on the first actual eclipse, the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, it was announced that there was proof that Syria had used chemical weapons. That was important as President Obama had previously stated that if Syria used chemical weapons it would be a “game-changer”, meaning the USA would then need to get more deeply involved in the crisis.
That has not happened yet; but then last week, just 4 days before the next eclipse, a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus, Israel most dangerously dropped bombs just outside Damascus Syria, invading that sovereign country for what it determined were for its security needs.
This country of Syria has become a crucible for the future state of the Middle East and the world. The planetary aspects from now till mid July promise powerful events surrounding Syria, events which could destabilize the Middle East region and the world. Transiting Jupiter conjuncts the natal USA Mars in late May and is followed by transiting Mars conjunct that same spot in the zodiac, at the USA Mars of 21 degrees of Gemini, at the end of June. The USA becoming involved in some kind of a military adventure or action is likely soon.
The Military/Economic Empire that dominates this world is in a quandary about Syria. A full blown war will destabilize the world, and cause havoc to the world economy, something they would hate to happen. But they also see an opportunity to gain control of a crucial spot of the world. If they gained control of Syria, then they would have a stronger foothold in the much coveted Middle East, and they would weaken the strength of Iran, seen as a threat to the Military/Economic Empire.
But Syria is a really complicated problem, as the so-called rebel faction fighting the government of Syria is made up to a large degree by AlQueda and other fundamentalist Muslim forces. This is a complicated civil war going on in Syria.
And countries Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Iran, Lebanon and others have stakes in the outcome of this conflict. So any match lit there could bring great fires of conflict, which would disrupt the global economy and oil markets. Pandora’s box would open and nothing would be easily solved.
So world powers do not know what to do. If Israel bombs Syria one more time, however, then for sure Syria will retaliate. Many other possibilities could also bring conflict. A major world conference to solve this Syrian problem is also in the works.
The transformation of the Middle East is inevitable as part of the changing power structure of our world. It is where most of our world’s major religions were born and where many of our first civilizations were created. What happens there will clear out much of the negatively violent old paradigm rules for living on the Earth. That paradigm includes much fear and mistrust for another; intolerance for those who are different or believe differently; a sense that some people or races or religions are superior to others.
For us to create a world of equality, of fairness and caring, one whose foundations are built on Love and Truth, we need to clear out and release the old world’s dysfunctions and toxicity.
So you can expect over the next few years and especially over the next year or two, much turmoil and chaos in the greater world. For the Military/Economic structure of our world to transform so all the peoples of this world are served, not just those with money and privilege; you can imagine how much disruption of the status quo must happen.
But this also means that people are waking up all over the world. And it will take “we the people” of this world to truly heal the world and transform it. And we do that by healing and transforming our own self first. As you honor your authentic self and then naturally honor everyone else’s authentic self, you are by the law of attraction helping to build our Aquarian Age, an age of Love and Truth, an age of Diversity in Unity, an age whose time has come, and will arrive more fully in 2020-21.
As the old world burns out, we are each an integral part of a new creation on this Earth, and Age of Aquarius. We are each cleaning out our old programming, our wounds and toxins. We are opening to the collective Soul Source, to our own individual light, to the Love and Truth that keeps the wheels of the Universe turning. There is no stopping this train of evolution.
Keep your seat belt on this Eclipse Season and ride the changes with trust and faith.
