This last half of winter can be considered a calm before the storms of spring and summer. Events will heat up like the weather as the winter ends. But if you look close enough now, you will see hints of what may be coming our way.
The economy is approaching a turning point. Right now it is not free falling into deeper trouble nor is it getting any better. By late spring or early summer, events will show the way to more clarity about our collective economic direction.
Astrologically, there will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Grand Cross on June 26, a few days after the summer solstice ushers in a new season. That Grand Cross will be making hard aspects to the USA natal chart Venus and Jupiter in Cancer. Venus and Jupiter together in the USA chart signify its sense of well being. As a result, our sense of well being will be an issue that we will collectively be addressing this spring and summer. President Obama’s Venus in Cancer from his natal chart is also aspected by this Eclipse Grand Cross.
What will this economic turning point be like? What direction will it be going in? How about our country overall?
I know by the astrological aspects that there is a transformaton of our country’s systems and institutions underway and continung for several years. Powers that Be have been putting flimsy band aids on the economy, not going to the core of the problem and transforming the structure. The bailout and the printing of more money only temporarily stop the economic bleeding. The national debt is enormous, the dollar is in trouble. The economy will likely turn downward at the coming turning point, and will stay down until there is real deep change of the system.
Many senators and congressmen have been resigning from office lately as polls show Americans have little support of that branch of government. As crazy as many Tea Party people are, they nevertheless are reflective of a growing number of people disenchanted by our American government.
Another branch of the USA government, the Supreme Court made an unbelievably horrible decision lately when it decided that corporations could spend as much money as they please on elections. Both conservative and liberal citizens were outraged as such idiocy.
And of course George Bush severely damaged the reputation of our presidency and executive branch of government during his 8 years in offfice. President Obama has added decency and intelligence to that branch, but he has not shown much strength of leadership or being true to the principles he campaigned on.
This last week there was an event that adds exclamation point to the dissatisfaction for our system now. A man suicide crashed into an IRS building this week, in anger at that economic institution.
There seems to be revolutionary energy building in America as more and more people are disenchanted with the established world and their lives. This is part of the transformation of our country and its system and institutions that is happening and will continue to happen.
As we approach 2012 and also move more fully into an Aquarian Age, more and more great changes will occur. This last winter has certainly alerted us to the change of our weather patterns and climate. There were snowfalls in places like Rome, Italy and Florida and Texas USA that do not usually experience such things. Here in Maine we have had an unbelievably mild winter so far. What greater climate changes do we face ahead?
And in the Middle East war drums are pounding. World powers are looking to put Iran in its place and defang its growing military and nuclear abilities. Of course all the countries, including Israel, that want to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions, all have nuclear bombs themselves. And the Israel/Palestinian conflict, arguably the most important conflict in the world as it influences greatly the disdain of Muslim peoples for the western world and Israel, will be heating up this spring and summer. Also importantly, Iraq and Afghanistan still have wars going on there.
There is a power struggle for influence and oil in the Middle East and it may blow up soon into a more out of control regional conflict this spring and summer.
All this economic and military upheaval will shake up our world structures and put and end to old ways of being that are destroying our human family and Earth. The Old Paradigm we have been operating under for over 2000 years is coming to an end.
Old authorities can no longer be relied upon. New ways to see our human experience here on Earth will reveal them selves. Where did we come from? How did our world begin? Who are humans? Where did our gods and goddessses from ancient times come from? Some of our coming revelations will be as big as our shifting consciousness from a flat world to a round world. This blog will examine these questions as time goes on.
See you next week
