Obama’s presidency has brought with it hope in America and around the globe for a better world. And have no doubt that a better world is in the making as we slowly move more solidly into an Aquarian Age.
Perhaps the last several years have made many people think that we have been going backwards into more greed and more hatred for those who are different from us. Many people were getting more and more cynical about our world and about America. We seemed to be moving further and further away from our American principles and values.
Obama truly has givin people that hope he preaches about. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prized because of that hope, not on what he has accomplished.
And as Obama pushes us further forward into a world that learns to share the wealth of the Earth, pushes us further forward into a world of more equality between peoples, pushes us to learn to accept all peoples regardless of race, national origin, sexual preference, gender,, etc; he also pushes the buttons of people who do not want the world to change in those ways.
Perhaps we have forgotten about Martin Luther King Jr. or Bobby Kennedy or John Kennedy or even John Lennon?
They all were pushing us forward to those same values stated above, and they were all assassinated! Make no mistake about it. Obama’s life will be increasingly in danger as he pushes harder and harder for those dreams to come true.
Our Aquarian president Abraham Lincoln also pushed us forward by emancipating the slaves and holding firm with our American and Divine principle of all being created equal. And he also was assassinated!
Obama has been angering many progressives when he tries to make compromises or stays in wars or appears to be weak with his principles. But he may be wise to be moving slowly, so as to blunt the knives of anger from his detractors.
And of course our Military-Industrial system and empire are so tightly and securely bound that it is difficult to make real changes very fast.
But remember that the Universe is so much bigger than human foibles. Nature is more powerful than our will. We reside within the Universe, on the Earth. We are guests, not rulers of the world.
And the planetary cycles that turn the wheels of our Universal experience on planet Earth keep churning even as we make our own personal dramas so important.
And a big cycle, one that lasts 2150 years is coming to a close. The Pisces Age, begun maybe 100 or so years before the birth of Christ, is ending and the Aquarian Age is being birthed.
The Pisces Age of sacrificial saviors and organized religion is coming to a close. The Aquarian Age of personal responsibility for a healthy world community begins.
And how does President Obama fit into all this change? He appears to so many as another savior and if he is, he is our last.
It is so sad to think he will be assassinated. It is so sad to think he is a sacrifice for the Aquarian Age.
But as you listen to people like Limbaugh or Beck and realize how many thousands of people they speak to and represent, you realize what a large segment of our society is against and even hateful of our President Obama.
And there are among those hateful a large handful who are deranged in their rage. And perhaps one who lurks in the shadows of horrid fate.
2010 will bring much change and accelerate our movement forward into an Aquarian Age. But at the same time as we move more quickly into this New Age, horrible destruction will bring the ashes from which a phoenix will rise from, to birth our Aquarian Age.
We pray that this soul we call Obama will be a new archetype, one of the Aquarian Age, beyond the need for saviors anymore. Perhaps he is this new Aquarian soul who shows us we no longer need saviors to carry all the responsibility for us and die for us. Perhaps instead he will lead us to ourselves and the knowledge that “we are the ones we have been waiting for”- we the people.
Astrology Forecast for October 18-24
Our week begins with a New Moon in Libra on October 17/18. It is at 10:30 PM on the 17th on the west coast of the USA, but at 1:33 AM on the 18th on the east coast.
Libra shows us peace and grace and civility. It sometimes is so much so this way as to preclude our ability to be real.
So for now whatever is simmering under the surface in the underground of Scorpio emotions, will wait before it surfaces. The beauty of autumn leaves similarly temporarily hides the coming starkness of bare branches and darker and colder days ahead.
But for now enjoy the relative harmony of your experience as we experience this New Moon in Libra, the beginning of our new lunar month. Concentrate on your relationships and how to communicate with others in a way they can truly hear you. Be aware of their presence and of the importance of making your relationship work well for you both.
On Sunday the Moon goes into Scorpio for a couple days of deepening our awareness and our emotional expression.
The Moon is in uplifting Sagittarius on Wednesday and Thursday and it is a good time to find answers and meaning to what you have been questioning recently.
On Thursday the Sun moves out of Libra and goes into its annual journey through Scorpio. Mid way through this Sun in Scorpio things will intensify greatly in your personal world and in the greater world when Saturn makes its first of three passes in square to Pluto. This will be happen on November 15.
Scorpio deepens our experience and helps us to see inside the superficial outer layers of life. Scorpio also deepens our emotional state and helps us to release what needs to be released. If you know any Scorpios you know how intense they can be and how they seem to hold in so much. But it will come out in time, and the longer they wait to express it the better chance it will come out like a volcanic eruption.
See you next week,
