This is such a time of uncertainty now. It is difficult for many to feel OK inside, as stress tries to creep in and take over.
If you are paying attention, you can see how many issues out in the world are being taken “to the edge”: Israel/Gaza; Israel/Iran; North Korea again; Venezuela; trade wars with China and the economy; Syria/Israel.
The current US presidential administration feels very chaotic and unpredictable, but what is much worse is that it answers to no one, certainly not the people. Congress and the executive branch of the USA are at war with one another. Impeachment is a real possibility.
So called liberal and conservative USA cultures are at war with one another, not truly recognizing that both are American and world citizens of the same human family. These splits into enemy camps takes us into very potentially disastrous situations.
When you look at TV shows and movies, most are about disasters and horror and are very dark and filled with gore and death. Even the wildly popular Game of Thrones has so much death and destruction and darkness in it.
There is no way a culture that sees and acts out so much separation and enmity between peoples based on religion, race, nationality, sexual orientation, etc. can last long. And with nuclear weapons so available now, as well as other weapons of mass destruction, we are headed for disaster if nothing changes soon.
And can you believe how many school shootings there are now? The old world is certainly in decay, as was Rome around the time of Christ. Ages changed from Age of Aries to Age of Pisces around that time of the Roman Empire decay.
And now we are again in crisis and decay, as Ages shift from the Pisces Age to the Age of Aquarius.
Yes most people recognize that Climate Change is real and must be reversed soon if we are to survive as a human family. But on a deeper level the real problem is about our beliefs, our stories, our priorities, our values, our paradigm for living as humans on Planet Earth and in the Universe.
The old ways and paradigm must come to an end, and for so many people there is nothing they can imagine to replace it. For them the old world must be brought back somehow. Hence MAGA.
Going back to the ’50s in America, so much seemed so innocent, until you looked under the rug to find abuse of African Americans, LGBTQ peoples, women, and anyone else who did not fit into that paradigm.
The Old America is run now by billionaires, mega corporations, and neocons who bully other countries and push for war against countries that have many rich resources and relatively weak militaries.
And neo-liberals have now also formed and they also want regime change of these other countries by force. America was not invited into Syria or Venezuela, nor was it invited into Iraq or Libya, two other countries we attacked, destabilized, and destroyed.
Civilian populace was innocent, yet so many were killed by USA and western nation bombings.
And remember none of those countries attacked the USA nor threatened to do so.
We need our energies focused now not on what happened before, or on these atrocities, but instead on how we can turn things around toward Love and Truth for a new age.
People all too often now seem to care more about material needs than soul needs and heart and soul connections.
We cannot continue, as so many are doing, to just go about our lives like robots. We have given so much of our attention to our phones and devices, to our TV and movies. We are certainly not as connected to our hearts and to one another now.
Game of Thrones has its dark and long Winter Time and its zombie-like inhabitants who just keep coming to bring on death for others.
Metaphorically speaking we are turning into the walking dead. We go through the motions of being vital and alive, but so many and so often we are just walking dead, unconsciously moving toward our destruction.
But it is not hopeless. We can still turn things around by cleaning out the old paradigm and the traumas we have experienced from it.
So many are now open to the Connections, to all the dots in the Universe being connected. As we learn to stay longer and longer in the connections, we experience many synchronicities and are shown signs and symbols that show us our way.
More and more we see all in a meaningful light, everything happening for a reason. Love grows stronger and stronger in our hearts and souls and bodies; Truth gets stronger and stronger in our minds, souls and bodies.
Fear and ego need to take a back seat in the drive down through our Soul Path. Spirit brings us more into light. And overall we move on our path toward more integration, as we accept our dark and light, male and female, yang and yin opposites held in union not in war with one another.
These unions indelibly show that opposites can be joined together as ONE.
This is within the new paradigm that shows us unity of opposites and becomes Diversity Within Unity, the calling card of the Age of Aquarius.
Would it not be great when Conservative and Progressive are understood as opposites that can form a relationship with one another. It is a relationship that honors the values and integrity of each, while also recognizing what unites them. Love of the country, love of the human community, love of the Earth and Sky realms are what will take us forward together.
But truth is also important, so recognizing the grave challenges that are moving into our world now is important too.
This week we are in the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle, and waxing toward a Scorpio Full Moon on Saturday the 18th.
The solid calm of the Taurus Sun will be challenged by the intensely primal passions of a Scorpio Moon.
So be awake to the shifting of energies on Thursday the 16th when the Moon moves out of pleasant Libra and into intensified Scorpio, getting us ready for the Full Moon in Scorpio.
The Full Moon in Scorpio is on Saturday May 18 at 5:11 PM EDT. Venus in Taurus is conjunct Uranus in Taurus also that day, so relationships will be in the spotlight. Important now to balance stable and secure needs with feelings of change and transformation.
This Scorpio Full Moon is an annual affair that is also called the Wesak Full Moon. It is said that Buddha was born at a Wesak Full Moon. Buddhists also believe that Buddha was enlightened and died on that same Full Moon in other years
The Wesak Full Moon is considered by many to be the most powerful of the year. Meditate on that Full Moon and see what you experience.
On Wednesday May 15, just a few days before the Wesak Full Moon, Venus goes into Taurus and Mars into Cancer.
There are desires that day to find comfort and care, home and safety. Allow yourself that indulgence so you can afterwards find more energy and focus for living.
Summer Eclipse Season is about a month away from the first winds of change to be felt.
