Moving into eclipse #2 this week: a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius on Wednesday June 15 at 4:14 PM Eastern Daylight Time. This Full Moon Eclipse will not be visible in the USA, because it occurs during daylight hours here. In much of the rest of the world it will be visible.
This eclipse is not only total but also will last longer than the usual lunar eclipse, so it will likely be quite powerful. Since the yang signs Gemini and Sagittarius are involved, much active energy will want to be released. Self expression and communication are in the spotlight of experience surrounding the June 15 date.
It is time to let go of your guarded protection and open up more, to free your mind and spirit, to express more freely from your authenticity. Conversations with others will open up into most lively interchanges.
In another way this combination of Gemini and Sagittarius energies will help you to find solution and understsanding, but perhaps only after you have downloaded into your mind much information and many possibilities. You will be brought more to finding meaning and purpose, perhaps after much questioning and confusion.
This lively Full Moon Eclipse this coming week will help to break you out of any funks or depressions, and break you out of the stuck boxes in your mind and life. This is a time of new beginnings or at least getting ready for new beginnings. Remember that this eclipse season of spring/summer 2011 is meant to push us forward into a New Season or Era of our lives here on Earth.
We are meant to move through this transition looking at life through new eyes, eyes that have awakened to greater clarity. We are moving out of old patterns that have kept us stuck, yet protected from our deeper soul’s truth. We have all too often been on auto-drive, zoning out in our habits and addictions.
Now life seeks to break down these “protections” and help us to more deeply connect with our authentic self and authentic life. Sometimes we think we are centered and aligned, but we are in reality operating in cruise control. These eclipses can awaken us from our slumber and bring us back to our souls and spirit.
Remember these “wake-up calls” can shake up our lives, as we realize we have been artificial in our relationships and relating, or getting stale in our careers and personal lives.
In the greater world, we have been cruising along hiding our eyes from some other realities. The economy is truly broken, running on bailouts to banks and corporations, flooding the financial system with money that brings more and more debt. In reality the economy is in grave trouble, and the stock market has gone down for 6 weeks in a row. The dollar is in trouble, unemployment and underemployment continue to be big problems; housing is not improving; food and gas prices have been going up.
Remember, the old world and age are held up by a Military Economic structure. This structure is cracking apart. The USA military was revealed to have been carrying on a covert bombing campaign in Yemen, trying to kill “terrorists” there. In the process they have created much “collateral damage”, which we all know means killing civilians and destroying their homes and infrastructure. We are also bombing and killing people in Afghanistan, Libya and Pakistan. We continue to occupy Iraq. What do all the countries have in common? They are Muslim countries.
Our occupation and bombing of these countries is bringing more hatred to America and western countries. Our biased attitudes toward Israel against the Palestinaians and other Arab and Muslim peoples is bringing even more animosity. This is all part of the eventual breakdown of the Economic/Military Empire which rules our world.
As this breaks down, our old security structure will transform into one more aligned with the Aquarian Age we are on the cusp of. There will be more equality in the world, more liberation for peoples all over the world who are controlled by an unfair economic system, and a military system that protects the interests of the privileged and wealthy.
Expect this eclipse season to show more and more cracks in the old system, in the old economy. The Military Complex will also be more threatened soon also.
Look for the Middle East to explode even more. There are revolutions erupting in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Bahrain, and Yemen. More people there will want to be liberated. These revolutions are drastically changing the face of the Middle East and threaten the hold of America and Western Civilization over the oil interests, resources, and global dominance there. Israel is feeling very threatened also as a result, though they possess the only nuclear weapons in that territory.
Look for them to attack Iran or to be drawn into some other wars in the region soon. The New Age of Aquarius will rise from the ashes of the Middle East, from a transformation of the region holding the religions that grew to dominance during the Pisces Age. Renewed spirituality, a spiritual renaissance has been growing for 25 years now, and will blossom more and more as our world transforms into an Aquarian Age.
There is no reason to panic or be afraid during this shift of Ages. All we each need to concentrate on is our connections, to our souls and authentic self, to the Universe, to one another, to Love and Truth. You will be guided to be where you need to be and when.
At each of these big movements of the Universal wheels, when big planetary aspects occur like this eclipse season, we are pushed out of the old world and how it has programmed us, and are more embraced by the loving arms of the Universe, which assists us in our evolutionary process into new consciousness aligned with a New Season of life on Earth we are all entering together.
Remember that the most powerful of the three eclipses will happen on July 1, a Solar Eclipse New Moon Cardinal Grand Cross. But first we encounter a very liberating Full Moon Total Eclipse this Wednesday.
And remember that Jupiter has gone from Aries to Taurus this past week, and will stay there for about a year. It is time to take what you have been inspired by and intitiated in the past year and make it more manifest this year ahead. It is time to get more into the “body”, into the physical, into practical application of what has been recently activated.
I hope you let go to the ride of these eclipses. Remember that “every day and in every way you are getting better and better” and so is our world at the deepest and highest of levels.
