As we just passed through a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13, Eclipse Season Autumn 2012 has ended.
This Eclipse Season began two weeks prior to the first actual eclipse, on a Full Moon October 29. With that Full Moon came Hurricane Sandy, which was a devastating storm for the east coast USA.
The Eclipse Season ended at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 13, and the next day there was a most horrible tragedy again on the east coast USA, in Connecticut. Strangely this tragedy occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Full Circle was from East Coast Sandy Hurricane to East Coast Sandy Hook school.
As we wrote at the Hurricane, storms moving into the section of America where the Sun first rises every day, the east coast, symbolically shows us what is expected to be moving into our country. The east coast is also where Europeans first built settlements in their New World colonizing.
The USA’s transformation is a large part of the transformation of our Earth human community, as we transition from a dying Pisces Age to a developing Aquarian Age.
The Pisces Age began over 2000 years ago, around the time when Christ was born into a world largely dominated by the Roman Empire. Now as we transition into an Aquarian Age, the last Empire, the Superpower USA Empire is dying. It is dying at a time when a Christ consciousness is wanting to open in the hearts of humanity.
That Christ consciousness knows we are all brothers and sisters in our hearts and souls. We are all in this human experience together, all in the same family, with compassion for all our members, especially those who are least understood.
It is so easy to make tragedies defined by notions of good and evil, about bad people and good people. And of course many are doing that with the School Tragedy in Connecticut, making Adam Lanza into a devil. But tragedies happen for reasons that are difficult to fully understand. There is mystery to the workings of nature, but also to the greater Universe or God. Who was the evil demon who brought death and destruction from Storm Sandy?
When nature creates the tragedy, we do not look for someone to demonize. We accept it is as just nature’s way. When a human is horribly involved and perpetrating the tragedy, we desperately look for quick answers so we can feel in control to fix the problem so it will not happen again.
There are no quick fixes, but we can learn some lessons from these tragedies. This time with the horror at Sandy Hook School, we are reminded of how our children are losing their innocence, and so are we adults.
There can be nothing worse to face than the loss of our children, a parent’s worst nightmare. And there is also loss of innocence for the surviving children and for children all over the country and world who find out about this tragedy. There was a murder at an Oregon Mall the day before also. So can we not feel totally safe at school or a mall anymore?
Where can children feel safe now, as their innocence is robbed from them. But our decaying American society has already been taking away that childhood innocence. Kids are now exposed to sex and drugs and drinking even before they are teens. And there are many permissive parents who do not see anything wrong with that.
When kids are exposed to so much, when so young, what is there to experience later? What are they being taught to value?
Why are they brought up to believe it is Ok to live in a world that has weapons of mass destruction, and that their country the USA used them and killed over 300,000 people in Japan in World War II?
Why is it ok to bomb countries and invade those countries and yet those countries never attacked us? Why is it OK that our world is so dominated by buying stuff, by making money. Why do we live in a world that gives privilege to people who make more money or have more power?
Why are we so separated by family and country and religion? Why do we hate people who are not just like us?
What kind of values are we giving our children, and why do we deprive them of their innocence?
And this man Adam Lanza was a child too, only 20 years old. He is a product of our world.
We have entered a most intense and difficult phase of our transition between ages, as we leave the Eclipse Season and move closer to the end of the Mayan calendar.
We must each make a stand, make a strong intention and commitment to the values of a new Aquarian Age. The old age will not end on December 21, 2012. A glorious New Age will not fully begin then either.
But we can each use that moment to visualize the kind of world we see coming in the Aquarian Age. We can commit to bringing better values to our world and to our children. Those new values will be our new world, a world of social consciousness, of equality amongst all peoples, of liberation from unjust and corrupt governments and rulers. We can quit giving our power away to corporations, by not making money and material possessions such a high priority in our world. We can quit making our military such an important player in our collective lives, as that gives a high priority to might.
Militaries should only be for protecting our borders and people from invasion, not policing the world and giving us advantage over others. We can begin to make a higher priority to our understanding others better, and making relationship and peace with them. We can teach our children they live in a world that is good, with love, truth, and fairness our highest priorities.
In the Old World , which is dying, we have decaying values, and these decaying values are what create our tragedies, natural or man made, as nature is a part of us.
When someone asks you how there can be God when such horrible situations happen like in Connecticut, let them know this: God (the Universe) is us, as we have been created in its image. We started with a beautiful “park”, our Earth, and we have been destroying it as well as our human family. We have let the higher values of this Universe, like Love and Truth, become low priorities in our world.
We are responsible for our world in an Aquarian Age, yes we the people are responsible. And as we become more and more responsible, we quit giving our power away to Governments and Corporations, to presidents and dictators and kings and queens, celebrities, and saviors. When we take all these powers off the pedestals, where we both idolize and blame them; we then create a world we can be proud of.
This is our world, and the Universe will support our co-creation of the Aquarian Age. Our children and our children’s children will be the beneficiaries of what we are learning to create.
As we await the ending of the Mayan calendar at the Winter Solstice this coming Friday December 21 at 6:11 AM EST there are less minutes of light every day tell then. The Winter Solstice is the darkest day of the year, but then afterward new light is born, and there is more and more light everyday until the Summer Solstice. At this major turning point, we turn toward the light. On that day, which is also the end of the Mayan Calendar, may we concentrate our energies on the enlightened values we want for all the generations to come.
