In March a Major Portal will open the floodgates of accelerated transformational changes for both our global and personal lives.
Two important Eclipses will burst forward then: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in water sign Pisces, and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra
Of course those waters flowing through the new Portal will seek to break down any blockages in systems, souls, and bodies; so these healing waters of revolution and evolution can live more fully in us.
So we have about a month before this transformational energy comes rushing through.
This Monday February 8 brings us an important new beginning with a New Moon in Aquarius.
In many ways sensitive people will begin to experience the Eclipse Season after this New Moon in Aquarius.
Floods of soulful energies will pour through our world beginning at the Solar Eclipse in water sign Pisces.
Water Bearer Aquarius, an air sign, carries streams of change that will open into an ocean of change at the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Neptune is the “ruler” of Pisces and of course Neptune is the God of the Oceans.
The New Moon this week in Aquarius is at 9:39 AM EST. It brings the beginning waves of the Eclipse Season.
So an important lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Aquarius this week. It carries the energies and issues that will burst forth in March, dramatically changing our lives both personally and globally.
Then April will continue the onslaught of transformational energies, as the Uranus/Pluto square (still in effect), will be triggered as Mars changes directions and Mercury goes Retrograde again.
So at this New Moon in Aquarius, allow the new energies to seep in slowly before their Grand opening in March and April.
This New Moon in Aquarius gets us more attuned with our need to be very distinct individualized persons, being authentic and not molding ourselves according to societal or family dictates.
At the same time as we get in touch with that which makes us unique and different, aligned with the sign Aquarius we ironically seek socially conscious groups that we can somehow fit into.
Often I write about Diversity within Unity being the callling card of the Age of Aquarius.
Aquarius is about being your unique self with unique function in the community, equal in value to all others, all in unity.
This New Moon in Aquarius is a good time to really get in touch with what you believe in idealistically and politically.
The elections for President should be about who answers your calls for the type of world you believe in, not who is the lesser of evils.
If people keep voting for lesser of two evils, we will always have an “evil” world, so to speak.
This time there are candidates outside the usual boxes, as the world is moving into a New Age. Vote your heart and conscience, not according to some political “wisdom”.
The Iowa caucus showed favorites doing well, and Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus while Sanders and Clinton were pretty much even.
Astrologically speaking, I do not see Cruz winning. Rubio, Trump, Bush, and Sanders look the best astrologically to me.
Though my astrological formula has done well in the past, keep in mind that we all vote and nothing is written in stone.
But for Cruz or someone else who does not fit into, by formula, what is coming into our country and world does not make sense to me.
The New Moon in Aquarius brings with it on February 8- a Chinese New Year of the Monkey. The monkey is considered a mentally agile symbol and great gains technologically make sense as a result this, as well as new ideas and inventions this coming year.
This year already has shown us that the recent transformational energies are now taking hold and becoming more real.
Yes the Presidential campaigns are showing us how the electorate wants change away from same-old doing business as usual.
The USA has been having its very central core broken down over the last couple of years as Uranus and Pluto have been making aspect to its Sun in Cancer.
The presidential elections show how the USA no longer knows who it is as its identity has been changing. President Barack Hussein Obama has brought a whole new kind of president, outside the usual box of white anglo saxon protestant male.
And our detente with Cuba and Iran has changed our relationship to the world. And our not blindly following Israel’s needs has also changed our relationship to them and the Muslim world.
The Middle East is so important to the world’s transformation into a New Age.
The Middle East is where most of our major religions and civilizations were born. It is where the transition between ages is brewing, where a New World will erupt from.
Will we in the USA continue the path President Obama represents and elect someone who continues to be on that track?
Or will we elect someone who sees America as better than the rest, and hates Muslims or others who they feel threaten the American way of life.
Will we bring in a president who will represent Diversity in Unity, equality for all; or will we need to go back two dangerous steps before we go three steps forward later?
The presidential choices are more clear now than since the ’60s and ’70s. Each of us must now reach for our “better angels” inside us. Revenge, fear and hatred will take us into a dark tunnel of pain. Love combined with Truth will take us to the best places, places aligned with the best of the Age of Aquarius.
