Sitting here looking out my window as storm Nemo finishes up. Though I would certainly feel differently if we had lost our power or if I needed to drive somewhere today, this was not so bad. And we are just off the coast in southern Maine, where we caught the brunt of the storm.
I did have to push hard to get some clearing from the 4 foot high snow drift blocking out doorway, but within a few minutes shoveled out a path to get to our plowed driveway. And it took another 20 minutes to dig my car out, so it can used if we need it.
But my God all the media sensationalism and cries again of “Storm of the Century” and historical blizzard, etc. Don’t get me wrong, Storm Sandy was as bad as the hype. But so many other weather events and other world events are so overblown.
Can you imagine what our ancestors used to go through before all our conveniences were invented, like heated homes and electricity, and cell phones, and radios and TVs to tell us what is going on? And our ability now to be able to know what weather events are coming and to prepare for the storms is far advanced from times gone by.
But yet soon, I believe the world is truly going to get much crazier, and events will break out that will change drastically the way we live and how we see our world and lives.
America and western civilization are moving into a downfall, and we truly need to grow up and look at our world more seriously. We need to get into dialogue with one another, with thoughtfulness and true conscientiousness, so we can dig out of the sleepy ditch we have fallen into.
We are not looking at the real problems in our economy, and instead our political parties argue and name call, not trying to find true solutions to our problems.
Our old paradigm of separation drives us away from one another, breeds fear and hatred, and creates enemies. Since the beginning of the 20th century, we have developed mass transportation, world commerce, worldwide communication links, and world war to show us we are all together on this Earth.
Yet with all our technology and inventions and physical improvements, our abilities to connect with one another through heart and soul are sadly very lacking.
There is very good chance that another world war is on its way soon, likely starting up in the Middle East or around North Korea. The enemies that have been created, especially since the 9-11 disaster, are getting more dangerous. Remember George Bush’s axis of evil, with Iraq, Iran, and North Korea? Self fulfilling prophecy has ensued.
And since then we have done nothing to make relationship, based on mutual respect, with these peoples. We obliterated Iraq, though it was found later they were no real danger, and now Iran and North Korea are ripe for major conflict.
With all the weapons of mass destruction in our world, we need to make relationship with one another now and get rid of these weapons. Dominating peoples, which has been the way of the world forever, must end. We have taken that paradigm of survival of the fittest, “every man for himself”, dog eat dog, to its limit. With all of us so “close” to one another now, and with these WMDs, we are on the brink, and events will soon force us to make changes quickly.
There are many sane and wise and peaceful people in this world, but currently these people are not in power. That is because our “system” mainly rewards those who “fit in” to the old paradigm, and those “sheeple soldiers” perpetuate the old paradigm.
Big events are coming soon to break down the walls of that old paradigm, perhaps as soon as this spring, when the next Eclipse Season unfolds.
At first it will look as if the old paradigm and its destructive ways are more powerful than ever. But then, at the same time, new people will rise, those sane and peaceful people, to start us up in a New Age of hope and healing.
From the ashes will rise a new generation of leaders, male and female, from all races and creeds and orientations, to build a world aligned with Aquarian Age values.
We in America must return to our core values, values that used to be a beacon of light for the world. Freedom and Liberty, Equality, Self Determination, and Diversity in Unity are core American values, God given rights for all humanity, not just us.
We have been the mold,however, the example, the experiment in Aquarian Values; and our beginnings were when Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) was discovered- in 1781. Our natal Moon is in Aquarius.
And now as we move closer to the Grand Cross, with Uranus square Pluto, and Mars and Jupiter- making almost exact aspect to our natal Sun in Cancer in April 2014; we will transform or decay further like Rome.
We have a Spring 2013 and Autumn 2013 Eclipse Seasons to assist our collective healing and transformation. And Uranus square Pluto will be exact during each of those Eclipse Seasons.
These are important time periods coming up, with both personal and world events that will assist our process of change and growth.
Each of us will need to be flexible, open, and ready to shift our perceptions and belief systems, ready to let go of programming from our society and families, and open to new light and healthier energies and frequencies coming through our hearts and souls.
Sunday February 10 brings a New Moon in Aquarius at 2:20 AM. This coincides with the beginning of the Chinese New Year also, the year of the Snake.
This New Moon in Aquarius is a time to get in touch with your own principles and values and to open to people and groups that you resonate with, that share your values, that are your “birds of a feather” friends. It is a good time also to honor your unique individuality and genius, and to connect on the internet, with social media, or any networks of connection that you desire.
Soon, Mercury Retrograde will reappear, on February 23, and it will last until March 17. After that will come Spring Equinox on March 20 and soon after the Spring Eclipse Season will erupt into our consciousness and world.
So for now keep looking for the light, as we have passed Imbolc and no matter how rough the weather may seem, we are getting closer and closer to spring, only about 6 weeks away.
It is best to not let your self be too influenced by the media, which sensationalizes events, follows the mainstream paradigm, and avoids the deeper issues we all need to address.
Storm Nemo is blowing strong winds right outside my door now, but it will soon pass, and all goes back to “normal”. This has been a bit of excitement to many whose lives are like Groundhog Day, same-old, same-old endless patterns.
Soon world and personal events will thrust us out of that holding pattern, and bring us more fully into a New World. The Mayan Calendar ending was another over hyped event, but it shows us how much people truly want the world to change, how much people are tired of same-old, same-old boredom and dysfunctional patterns, and crave some real change, change that will transform all of our lives.
It will come.
See you next week for a shortened version of Perspectives from the Sky. Then there will be no Perspectives on February 23. And we will fully resume on March 2 again, as we get closer to the Spring Eclipse Season 2013.
See you next week,
