Mars went back direct over two weeks ago, and the New Moon in Taurus was last week. Many people are now beginning to feel the first winds of change for the Eclipse Season. Energies will liven up more as we move deeper into the Eclipse Season.
The first eclipse is on May 20. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini. The second eclipse in on June 4. It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius. Energies will be moving rapidly through our minds, hearts and spirits. These energies and the events that come with them are taking us out of the same-old, same-old patterns of our consciousness and life.
Our hearts and minds will be opened up more so new information, ideas, and inspirations can come through to us. These new energies that want to pour through may meet up against some blocks in our psyches, minds, and hearts. Old patterns that have become rooted in our lives may fight to stay around longer.
Yet the energies of the Eclipse Season, which also include Venus Retrograde and Uranus Square Pluto, will be strong enough in many cases to break down the old structures that no longer serve us. These breakdowns will then often coincide with breakthroughs into new passages in our lives.
Some of the shifts in your life are already seen, as you have plans and events already set up for the eclipse period, which will last into July. Though the events may already be planned and set up, the importance of these events may not already be known.
The reason that these plans may be important is because of when they are happening: during the eclipse season. Many things that will happen then will be part of the process of letting go and releasing the past, and opening up to new horizons.
So a class you may be attending, or a wedding you may be going to, or a vacation you have planned may be more memorable than you know, may bring up issues for you, may help you to better witness a pattern that is no good for you anymore.
Remember that Venus will be retrograde during the Eclipse season, as it goes retrograde on May 15 and stays that way until June 27 when it goes back direct again.
So relationship issues will be especially prominent during that time, and relationships from your past will tend to revisit your consciousness. This may happen in the form of dreams, nostalgic memories, or actual physical reunions with people. This will happen so you can better view where you have come from in relationships. These relationships may be friendships, relatives, or romantic relationships.
Old patterns of relating that do not honor your authentic self or your true relationship needs will reveal themselves so you can transform them. Some relationships will end during this eclipse period, some new ones will be found, and dysfunctionall relationship patterns can begin to change.
Keep in mind that transformation will be especially strong, the winds of the Universe will be at your back. So efforts you put out for transformative change will be more fruitful than usual.
And this very much includes a shifting of thinking and consciousness, and perspective on your life and life in general. Gemini and Sagittarius energies are especially strong as the eclipses are in these signs. Venus goes retrograde in Gemini and Jupiter goes into Gemini for a year beginning on June 11.
New ideas and new perspectives and new inspirations will be easier to access. Communication issues will also be in the spotlight of our lives, as will new learnings and education.
In the greater world, important events will be swirling though our lives. On May 23, just a few days after the first eclipse and between the two eclipses, the next meeting with Iran will occur. Planetary movements and Iranian issues have really synchronized lately.
On the day Mars went retrograde, Europe put sanctions on Iran. On the day Mars went back direct ruling nations of the world met with Iran to try to stop them from enriching Uranium and potentially building a nuclear bomb. And on May 23 there is an expectation that true change will happen and Iran will be cooperating with these nations.
If there is not sufficient indication that Iran is cooperating, then war is inevitable and imminent. If there is some important agreement, then we can expect conflict to at least be put off for some time.
The economy will be showing us more obvious signs of what direction it is moving in during the eclipse period. Keep in mind that before too long, the military/economic structure that holds the old paradigm together needs to break down so we can create a more equitable and fair world, so Love and Truth can become pillars of our new Earth community.
The chinks in the armor of the Empire will get stronger and stronger in the form of breakdowns in the global economy and military controls of our world structure.
In 2014 especially the USA will be in great crisis and will need to return to its founding principles in order to survive. This return to principles of equality and liberation must extend now to the Empire’s control of our lives through mega corporations and the governments and government officials that have been bought out.
The Age of Aquarius is about power to the people of the world to run their own world. It is about honoring Diversity in Unity, honoring the freedom for each person, nation or entity to be self determining. It is liberation for our human hearts, souls, and minds, and a healing of the separations that limit our ability to be a world community bound together as one.
The changes coming our way will help each of us to liberate our selves from controls of our hearts, minds, souls and lives from the programming by our society and families that keep the old paradigm of an old age alive and in control.
I look forward to experiencing this eclipse season with you,
