Winter has finally hit, with a snow storm a couple days ago and a deep freeze on the way. We are in the deep of Winter.
The Moon is waning now and moving down into its last Quarter phase, getting us prepared for a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.
That will be a turning point day as Mars also goes Retrograde that day and the Chinese New Year of the Dragon begins.
But this week is low energy, winding down, making completions, cleaning up, preparing. After the 23rd you can rev up your life engines again.
In the greater world a perfect storm is in the early stages of formation. This perfect storm is the explosion that will shake up the Old World paradigm and reality.
Those of us on a spiritual soul journey into a new paradigm, a New Earth, an Aquarian Age, have been getting rewired into a new consciousness aligned with this World.
We have been facing spiritual crises that are meant to help us release the programming of the society of that Old World paradigm. We have faced deep fears, let go of old beliefs and attitudes, endured physical health challenges, as we are being prepared for the storm ahead.
Each of us must be mentally and spiritually ready for the challenges ahead. The Old World is about to bring us events that will tend to evoke great fear.
The deep personal challenges we have each faced let us know that transformation into Unity consciousness is not an easy process. There are shadows and demons of separation consciousness to be faced and released on the path into Aquarian Age consciousness.
Many people are going to freak out because of the storms that are coming. The messages from the old world will be of fear, and hatred of those who are different. They will tend to motivate you into a survival of the fittest mentality. They will stoke you into nationalism and patriotism that will separate you from your fellow Earth citizen. Enemies will be created by media and government, lies will be told to get you to choose sides.
But you have been cleansing, healing, and transforming your consciousness and life over the years. You know we are all One, that we have been getting prepared to create a New Earth, an Aquarian Age.
There is a war coming that is part of this perfect storm. The Powers of the Old World are getting ready for a showdown with Iran. War preparations are already beginning. A False Flag incident is possible soon, one that is staged to look like a Pearl Harbor. Or perhaps more simply Israel will attack Iran.
This showdown with Iran has the potential to begin the dominoes falling into a war that will encompass much of the world.
The European economic crisis, which will become an American economic crisis, will form at a similar time period to the war cries with Iran, to help form this perfect storm.
Some people believe we can stop this all from happening with our prayers and positive visualizations. Perhaps Divine Intervention can be evoked to help us move into an Aquarian Age in a more graceful manner.
But it is also quite possible, as many prophecies have foretold, that these events are meant to be in order to bring about the transformation into a New World and New Earth.
But keep in mind that we are all on this Earth at just the right time. We are meant to be here now. We have incarnated at this time to be of assistance to our world in crisis. The inner work and healing we have gone through over the years is in preparation for this crisis.
Many of you reading this will be leading the way into new consciousness and helping to create this New World.
The timing of this is difficult to ascertain. The eclipse season this Spring 2012 is a likely time for the storm, but I believe the early dark winds of this storm will blow in sooner than that. Watch for signs of the brewing storm near the coming New Moon in Aquarius as Mars goes Retrograde on January 23. During the Mars Retrograde period there will likely be second thoughts on engaging in war, even as preparations are being made. Keep in mind that Mars is the archetypal god of war, and while it is retrograde we reflect on Mars issues.
Mars will go back direct on April 14. Mercury will also be retrograde from March 12- April 4, so much contemplation and reflection will be in order then. Then sometime afterwards it is time to act and move forward. Perhaps minds will be changed.
In May and June there are two powerful Eclipses. In June is the first pass of the revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto. This is the time period most likely when the Perfect Storm occurs, if it indeed will happen. The timing is not cut in stone. Events will happen surrounding the May/June planetary intensities, but exact dates are almost impossible to ascertain.
There is nothing to worry and fret about, as all will unfold just as it meant to unfold. You have been preparing, whether you are conscious of that fact or not. The shifts you have been experiencing are part of the process to put you just where you need to be.
We all know that life is not just about raising families, buying a home, making money, and consuming and buying. Life is a meaningful and sacred soul journey. We are here on Earth as spiritual beings, reincarnating in order to return to our soul home of Unity consciousness.
No, all humans will not be entering Aquarian Age consciousness during this time of intense transition, but enough will to be able to create our new world.
This week, January 15-21, there is a waning last quarter Moon beginning early Monday morning. Then on Thursday there is a serious feeling in the air as the Sun squares Saturn. And on Friday the Sun moves into Aquarius, three days before the Moon joins the Sun in Aquarius to form a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.
Aquarius time of year is a time for concentration on social networking, group activity, and social consciousness. It is also a time to break out of limiting boxes of consciousness, and to see things in inventive and creative ways. Aquarius tends toward distinct individuality, even if others may see it as weird and strange. Aquarius is about rebellion against how one is supposed to be, and it is anti ego. Aquarius hates tyranny and appreciates equality and freedom. Aquarius walks the thin line between genius and crazy and loves to travel the network of mind and intellect.
