The rate of transformational change will accelerate soon. We are creating new ways of being with one another on the Earth.
Much of what we have come to rely on in the world will begin to shatter. It actually already has been shattering.
We were lead to believe for many years that the value of our homes would only go up. We were lead to believe that our 401 Ks would only go up. We were lead to believe that the economy was rock solid and would always stay that way.
We were lead to believe that if we went to war it would be for good reason, that our sons and daughters who die in war would only die for with sacred meaning.
And now we see our homes depreciating in value, our 401 Ks have lost money, our jobs are not secure. Over the last 20 years or so we have come to believe that whatever we need materially we can have. If we don’t have the money on hand we can borrow it. Now it is getting more and more difficult to borrow.
The Iraq war was fought from lies, and many people have died as a result. Our lives were not threatened by Iraqis. We invaded and took over a country for no morally justified reason. People in Iraq not only died horrible deaths, but lost their homes and lives. For what reason? So we can live better here in America and the western world?
And in Afghanistan, we invaded another country so we could pay back the the 9-11 attackers. We never found them. And why must so many innocent Afghani’s die and have their home life ravaged now 8 years later?
Well Afghanistan has destroyed empires every time they have invaded there. Britain and the Soviet Union are two recent examples of powerful empires brought to their knees in Afghanistan.
And the USA has begun its downfall. The Bush administration showed us how decayed we have become. The Obama administration does often remind us of what the best in America can be, but he cannot stop our slide downward. What is happening to us is bigger than what any one man or presidential administration can stop.
Soon we will know the economic recovery is not real. We have to fundamentally change our economy and our lifestyles. The bailout and attempts at recovery seek to bring us back to what we were. That will not happen.
What we transform into I do not know, but I do know we must get back to simple basics, to compassion for those who cannot thrive or even survive in a dog eat dog world. We must learn to take care of those who do not have much money, and we must find a way to stop unbridled wealth and greed. We must value and find a way to pay those who provide human services as much as those who know how to sell and make money.
Soon we will have our military stretch beyond just Iraq and Afghanistan. New fires of conflict will erupt in the Middle East that threaten our military might in the world. We in the western world must learn to be more humble and see ourselves more as equals with other peoples.
It has been ingrained in us that we are the best in the world, above all the rest, the great superpower. America is our country, its people our family who we should be proud of in many ways. We have freedoms unheard of in so many places around the world. We are a fine example of a melting pot of peoples and religions. We even elected President a mixed race man.
But are we, in the eyes of the Universe, any better or with more deserved privilege that any one else?
We have been here before! Great empires have risen and fallen. Their own decay has been a result of their fallen values and principles, their corrupt ways. Rome, the first empire of the Pisces Age, rose rapidly and fell in decay.
America is the last of the Pisces Age empires, and is our transition into an Aquarian Age. We don’t need another Empire.
Aquarius is about equality, liberty, and the God given right to individual pursuit of happiness. It is part of our American heritage, something to be proud of. But these values and principles apply to all peoples, not just us.
I believe we will rise again, not as a superpower, but as an equal member of the world community. I hope it does not take too long for us to get there.
So be ready for big change in 2010. It will be a year when all of us are tested. It will not always be easy, and we will need to work in our consciousness so we do not let fear get the best of us.
Do we continue to hang on to old ways that no longer serve our souls’ evolutionary movement?
Or do we let go and embrace our journey into an Aquarian Age?
There is no stopping this train of progress and evolution. The recent setback of gay rights in Maine was only temporary.
Nothing can stop the movement to greater diversity and equality. It is written in the stars!!
Astrology Forecast for November 8-14
The first pass of Saturn square Pluto is approaching, and happens on November 15. The recent mass murders at Fort Hood and in Orlando Florida symbolize the kind of energies Saturn/Pluto can bring.
At Fort Hood, in the processing center for those coming and going from Iraq, a man of Middle Eastern descent went on a rampage of killing. The symbolism is powerful. America needs to leave Iraq and other countries we have invaded and taken over. Saturn/Pluto brings ruthless energies, and demand our attention.
They bring with them a process of transformation from old ways and forms, to new ways and forms. Our American military institution needs major transformation. We can no longer keep our soldiers stationed in places all over the world. We can adequately protect our citizens from our home territory. We have more weapons of mass destruction than any country in the world, and have used them.
Iran is the country now in the crosshairs of America, Israel and the western world. They do not play by our rules. They are on notice now, and will be attacked before the summer of 2010.
This attack will bring chaos to the Middle East and open up greater war in the world.
In our personal lives Saturn/Pluto will not be so dramatic for most of us. There is a need, however, to let go of parts of our lives that are toxic. Those parts of our lives will be revealed to us during this Saturn/Pluto transit, which will last through next summer. Issues will be brought to the surface.
If there are toxic patterns in your relationship, for instance, they will seem more unbearable during Saturn/Pluto and perhaps will reach a crisis stage. This will demand your attention, so you can work to transform your relationship.
This week begins on Sunday with the Moon in Leo. This is your best day to play and have fun this week. Emotional issues could erupt, however in the evening as the Moon conjuncts Mars.
On Monday the intensity could get more dramatic at the last quarter Moon in Leo squaring the Sun in Scorpio.
Time to get more efficient and work-oriented on Tuesday as the Moon goes into Virgo. It will stay in Virgo all day Wednesday also.
Moon in Libra conjunct Saturn and square Pluto brings dark clouds of change blowing in.
Events and energies intensify greatly as the Moon goes into Scorpio on Saturday, just a day before Saturn squares Pluto. There is feeling of heaviness and gravity, and world events will likely be intense and grim.
Remember we are ultimately cleaning out old ways of being, to clear the decks for an Aquarian Age. Keep focused on the world we are creating together, keep your mind, body, spirit, and soul as healthy as possible. Keep your self spiritually connected and aligned. You will be where you need to be, doing what you need to do.
See you next week,
