With the passing of the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 15, we have seen the end of the storms of the eclipse season of spring/summer 2011. The greatest intensity of the eclipse storms began to subside a few days after the Cardinal Grand Cross Solar Eclipse New Moon on July 1. Some resolution was found near this Full Moon in Capricorn, which effectively has ended the eclipse season.
What has happend for many, especially those with natal planets falling within the eclipses’ planetary alignments, is that their old world was shaken up considerably; and for some it will never be the same again.
They received a real wake-up call, a transformation of beliefs and sense of reality. There was a release of old ways of thinking and of old patterns of behavior that have kept them stuck. Part of the waking up for some was dis-illusion of old cherished perceptions of self and others.
By letting go of the old perceptions and ideas of reality, there is a potential renewal, a rebirth. Now one can look at their life with new eyes, and see the old challenges in all new ways.
Many I know experienced relationship challenges during the eclipse season. They met someone new and hoped that person would be the one they have been searching for. Instead they found an old pattern of relationship disguised a a new face. In much more rapid fashion than usual, they were forced to face deep truths about themselves and their old patterns in relationship. Because of the intensity and transformational depth of the eclipse season, they reached deeper in their souls than usual. After much pain and soul searching, they released the relationship and with it released old patterns of thought and behavior that have limited their happiness in relationships.
Now they are ready to look at the hurts from past heart wounds and abuse that had caused the old self defeating patterns. And they are or will be more ready than ever to embrace new relationship patterns, and in some cases a knowledge they are fine being alone.
No matter what issues each of us faced during the eclipse season- work, home, family, etc., the intensity of the storms has subsided. But we are not done with the repercussions of the eclipses.
Soon we will move forward into this New Season of our lives. We will experience new events that are a result of the changes we made during the eclipse season.
These events will begin to emerge after the next New Moon, the one in Leo on July 30. Then in September and October, with the arrrival of Comet Elenin, and the ending of the Mayan Calendar on October 28 according to Mayan expert Carl Johan Calleman; we will experience new transformational experiences that continue to change our lives in even bigger ways.
In the greater world, we have spoken before how it is held up by global economy and global military. The global economy, held up historically through the strength of the USA and Europe, has been faltering greatly. In Europe,-Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Italy and Spain have weakening economies that could default on their loans and jeopadize world economic stability. Even more so, the USA is in a debt crisis that must be settled by early August or potentially the world economy will get much more chaotic.
And the global military, again mostly dominated by the USA and NATO, is running wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. There is potential for more Middle East War, even an attack on Iran late this summer or early autumn. The Palestinians are going to the UN in Septemer to ask for recognition of Palestine as a state. This action could cause many dominos in the Middle East and world to fall.
Remember that the Arab Spring, which has brought revolutionary change to countries in North Africa and the Middle East, is still brewing. This is causing transformation of power and allegiances all over the world. Israel is likely to act to show its power before too long, in order to shift the tides of change.
The Arab Spring revolutions and the Japanese nuclear disaster happened within the time of the last two eclipse seasons: the powerful one that began on the Winter Solstice with a Lunar Eclipse, and the one that happened this spring and early summer. They both have happened to shake up our world paradigm, to open the gates for a new Paradigm and Age
Big events will continue to erupt, as the floodgates have been opened by the last two eclipse seasons. An Aquarian Age of liberation, of self determination for all peoples and nations, of equality, of Diversity in Unity flows through the gates. It brings us back to our souls and hearts and free minds, to the twin pillars that run the Universe: Love and Truth. It will bring us to where we the people take the reins of the world and take responsibility for the health and well being of our human family and for the Earth and all her creatures. We return to our alignment to the Universe and its natural cycles and seasons, and to the connections, meaningfullness and sacredness of life.
Our changes are accelerating. Our ability to move more quickly through our issues is happening. It is important to be flexible now, to keep an open mind and heart, to be present and alert. The more awake you are, the better able you will be to make the shifts necessary. The more awake you are, the better able you will be to see the signs and symbols and synchronicities that light your path.
This coming week is slower in planetary alignments and we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse grand Cross New Moon on July 1. It is time for some healing and “come down” this week. On Friday July 22, however, the Sun moves into Leo. No matter what has been going on in your life, Leo is time to play, to enjoy summer, to be creative.
So make a commitment to your playful and creative self to endulge her and enjoy your life.
See you next week,
