The intensity of change continues to increase. Here on the east coast of the USA we experienced an earthquake a few days ago, which is very unusual here, and following close behind a huge hurricane is now coming up the coast.
Washington DC, the center of government in the USA was close to the epicenter of the earthquake. Now New York, our biggest city and the home of Wall Street, the economic center, is about to get deluged by this storm.
The east coast of the USA is where the Sun rises and the day begins here in America. This coast is where the new enters our shores, and where the pilgrims entered this land and began the European experience of the New Land and eventual country. This coast is where the 9-11 attack was thrust upon us, in New York and Washington DC, great symbols of our country. This attack began a new era in America, a time of the War on Terror, and Homeland Security. Many would argue this began a fear and security obsession time period in America.
These current weather events are symbols of new storms of great change that are ready to enter our home country USA. Let us hope this time period will shift us more positively into progress into new and better ways to live and think.
The USA economy, which is the engine that ignites the world economy, has been getting shaky and more change is the way. Our world wide economy is on the verge of great transformation. Disparity between rich and poor is ripe to transform into an eventually more equitable system.
Revolutionary energies, begun early this year 2011 in North African countries, will spread over more of the globe, including the USA.
The glue that has held the old paradigm for how we live and think and organize our lives is coming apart. New energies, which bring new ideas and possibilities are waiting to flood our minds and hearts and lives, so we can create a new paradigm for living on the Earth.
In an Aquarian Age, we know more that we are all ONE, all is connected in our human family, all over the Earth and all over the Universe. We get even more in touch with our individuality, our individual authenticity, but learn to connect in community, with tolerance and respect for other peoples and creatures.
This consciousness, of individual difference in connected Unity with everything, is the foundation for our new paradigm for living on Earth.
The old survival of the fittest mentality, which has turned us against one another, transforms into a knowing that survival now is dependent on cooperation and unity.
If you want to know how to be part of this New Aquarian Age, it is imperative to heal the old wounds and attitudes and beliefs that keep you in fear; and with lack of trust; and separate from others in your consciousness.
As you heal and transform, you open your mind and heart, and let in new light and energy that propels you forward in your evolution into Aquarian Age consciousness.
Challenging events will continue to flood into our world so we can humbled into knowing we are all ONE, not just unified here as Americans, but knowing we are all one family all over the world.
The Comet Elenin is a symbol of the speeding up of change this late summer and autumn. As change speeds up you will be helped to release that which impedes your personal evolution.
Remember you are letting go of old programming by our old world that has taught you to fear and to dishonor your soul, free mind and heart. It has taught you to not trust life and the Universe, to not trust your fellow human, to not trust the natural cycles and symbols and synchronicities shown all the time by the Universe and Nature.
We are ready to move with this new change. Do not let the media bring you into too much fear mode. Of course use caution and stay alert, but do not buy into the paradigm that does not recognize the sacred meaning of all events. Remember that all the dots in our world are connected and all happens meaningfully.
Mercury went direct Friday night August 26 and there is New Moon in Virgo this Sunday August 28. The airwaves are clearing up and you can begin to contemplate more seriously where you are going and what you want to do. Issues will get more clear over the next few days and decisions will seem easier to make. Perhaps you will better understand now why it is good to wait before jumping to conclusions during Mercury Retrograde.
This New Moon in Virgo will add to the energies of moving forward, but with Virgo the forward movement is to better order your life. Your logical linear mind will begin to work better now, but be careful with Virgo energies. They can get you to being overly obsessive and perfectionistic. It is best with a Virgo New Moon to fix what needs to be fixed or repaired this coming month ahead and to “get down to business”. The New Moon in Virgo is at 11:04 pm Sunday night, so we are in dark moon mode until Monday night as the moon shows a crescent, signaling new beginnings. During dark moon it is a good time to make intention and prayer for the month ahead.
On Tuesday August 30, Jupiter turns from Direct to Retrograde. When a planet changes directions its energes permeate our life more intensely. Jupiter is about expansion and upliftment. So you may feel more inspiration to get moving. along with the New Moon.
There is much spirit and magic coming our way through all the storms and crises. Keep your mind, body and spirit healthy now. That will help you stay centered and connected to your authentic self and the Universe.
