We just passed through the first of 3 eclipses this Eclipse Season: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius.
On Summer Solstice the 2nd eclipse happens: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. A Solar Eclipse on Summer Solstice is rare; yet in 2001 on Summer Solstice there was a Solar Eclipse in Cancer.
Late that summer the Twin Towers 9-11 event rocked the USA and world. I do not anticipate something exactly like that happening, but I do see a very powerful Summer Season for the USA and world.
And then comes the Autumn whose highlight is the Presidential Election. And that happens close to the next Eclipse Season in November/December this year.
Then at the end of December will be Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+degrees of Aquarius.
This I consider to be a major Gateway into the Age of Aquarius.
Jupiter and Saturn make conjunction with each other every 20 years. Jupiter and Saturn are planets that represent our society and culture. Jupiter is the rewards and Saturn is the consequences.
Jupiter is the good cop and Saturn the bad cop in keeping someone following the laws and rules of a society.
And that is fine in a healthy and fair society. But that is not true in this day and age in America.
That is why true Transformation is needed now, a pulling up at the roots a society that represents a Paradigm that is no longer in the best interests of the people who reside in this world. Why should there be a world that is so unequal? Why should some have wealth and privilege while others struggle to survive from day to day? Why should some races, cultures, genders or sexual orientations be considered inferior and not deserving of fair treatment and equality?
That is why Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are so important. They represent going beyond the culture and into the more divine realms where transformation into a New Age is processed.
Prior to the discovery of Uranus in 1781, then Neptune in 1846, then Pluto in 1930; Jupiter and Saturn were the furthest planets out that humans were aware of.
And synchronistically, Uranus (the ruling planet of Aquarius) was discovered in the midst of 2 important revolutions: American and French.
That Uranus discovery represents humanity being on the first increment of the cusp of an Aquarian Age.
Those revolutions brought the downfall of royalty in those countries as people awakened to the need for liberation and freedom. There also was the emergence of “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. Diversity of many different peoples into the unity of the USA was another important part of the revolution. These are all Aquarian Age principles that we are integrating into our consciousness and lives.
We have collectively moved far away from these principles in recent times, especially since the current USA administration took over the Presidency.
We are back to having someone who wants to be King as President. As we move into this Age of Aquarius, we are needing another revolution to break down authority that takes the power of the people away again.
The third eclipse this Eclipse Season will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn- on July 4, the day of the birth of the USA in 1776.
So the last two eclipses will meaningfully be on Summer Solstice and July 4. This is not random, it is meaningful. The Summer will be intense and transformational and the USA will be in the spotlight of the powerful changes this summer.
Remember also that Venus is Retrograde now (until June 25) and Mercury goes Retrograde on June 17, and lasts until July 12.
So there is a rewinding of events and memories from the past during the Retrogrades, especially relationship memories.
That means it is time to go back over patterns that need to be released and transformed. This is necessary during this Eclipse Season, when transformation into New Age consciousness is so needed.
We cannot keep relationships alive that keep authority figures dominating and abusing people. The military dominating and abusing minorities is happening in our world now, and creating protests and riots.
This is part of the Revolution into a new Paradigm and Age.
The Military/Industrial Complex runs the current Empire. It will be challenged more and more over the next few years, as Pluto in the USA natal chart 2nd House is aspected.
Pluto in the 2nd house represents the Empire, and so Military/Police and Stock Market/Economy will continue to be threatened, so we can emerge into a New Age and Paradigm.
The current administration will do whatever possible to keep the economy looking strong, as historically USA citizens have voted for who makes their pocketbooks/wallets fuller.
But no matter what happens prior to the election, the current administration will have the Federal Reserve flood the economy with paper money to make it look good.
And it is also quite possible that a “wag the dog” scenario will play out, as a war is instigated in order to have citizens rise up to patriotically support the President.
No matter what happens at the election this year, there is no doubt in my mind that Revolution will gain strength and Evolution of human consciousness will continue to grow.
This week will still have the waves of the Lunar Eclipse felt and experienced. We enter the waning half of the lunar cycle, getting ready for the power of the Solar Eclipse on Summer Solstice.
Mid-week the Sun squares Neptune and late week Mars conjuncts Neptune. So issues may be cloudy and unclear in our world and personal lives this week.
But also this week is a good time to connect spiritually, to witness the signs, symbols and synchronicities that help to show us the way.
These signs come from spirit, from soul, from the divine realms. They help guide us on our journey into the New World and a New Chapter of our lives.
Meditation helps us to make the connections, and see the signs. Following our dreams is especially important during these Neptune transits. Might be a good idea to keep a dream journal next to your bed this week, so you can better remember your dreams.
Dreams take us into other dimensions, dimensions that show us deeper truths and realities. They are connected to Soul. At the least they give us symbols that help us better understand our lives. They also help us to get in touch with our deeper desires and fears.
And at their best they help us to soul travel and to enter the future, which happens in the Now.
