Some fireball flashed in the sky across most of the East Coast USA on Friday, seen from New England to Florida. This was the same day forceful god of war Mars was conjunct “awakener” Uranus in fiery Aries This ball of fire was seen as big as a Full Moon, and most believe it was a meteor. But no one knows for sure.
We have made the case on previous entries of Perspectives from the Sky that what happens on the East Coast USA, where the Sun comes up for the country, coinciding with an important planetary event, symbolizes something powerful is coming for the USA as a whole.
Last year at the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus, which opened up the Autumn Eclipse Season, Hurricane Sandy destroyed much of the East Coast around New York and New Jersey, and ultimately had a huge influence on the USA Presidential Election. Prior to that storm Governor Romney was ostensibly leading President Obama. After that storm, Governor Christie of New Jersey was quite happy with President Obama’s help for New Jersey, and showed it in a big way. President Obama won reelection and many pundits believe that the storm was the turning point.
6 weeks later, after two powerful Eclipses, there was a New Moon in Sagittarius that finished up the Autumn Eclipse Season. Then at Sandy Hook School in Newtown Connecticut, there was a most horrible massacre of children. For some strange reason the name Sandy was prominent at each tragedy. This school massacre showed us potential results of the American culture of violence, and brought on the mission to limit guns in our American society.
Now, about a month before the first of 3 eclipses of Eclipse Spring Season 2013, an omen has flashed across the Easter skies of the USA. This spring, along with the powerful eclipses, both Mars and Jupiter will make conjunction with the natal USA Mars, a significator of conflict, police, military, violence, and sometimes war.
With the Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries aspect at the same time as the fireball in the sky, this could be a sign that this spring will bring powerful events to our country, with the strong possibility of new conflict involving the USA.
Syria, North Korea, and Iran are hotspots now, and the empire may be looking to put a forceful stop to any threats to its dominance in the world. These countries have been demonized by government and media to the American public. This sets us up for rabid patriotism. Like Iraq and Viet Nam, we can be herded like sheep off to war again.
If a major conflict does not happen this spring, events will nevertheless likely show us it is coming very soon.
Hopefully whatever happens will begin to wake people up all over the world. It is time we stop unjust wars that can destroy so much of humanity, especially as our human family possesses so many nuclear weapons. It is time we make peace and love the pillars that hold our world and humanity.
It is time we develop institutions, and economic systems that do not reward the greedy, corrupt, or aggressive; but instead are conducive for fairness, equality, truth, compassion, and love. These are not Pollyanna dreams, as the cynical leaders of the world will make you believe.
These are values of the Greater Universe, a Universe that is sacredly meaningful and provides what is needed when it is needed to everyone so aligned and connected.
We as a human family have generally left alignment with that Universe, and then blame it (God) for our horrors. We have been given the ability to create and choose, and what happens to us is the result of what we have sown. This is karma.
Now, as we are in transition between ages, as old ways are falling apart and breaking down, new light is wanting to shine for breakthroughs into new ways.
We are moving into a time of renewed creativity, new choices. There is indeed an Aquarian Age bursting open, but we are the chefs of its manifestation, we are the ones we are waiting for to create this world anew.
The Spring Eclipse Season will open around the New Moon in Aries on April 10, but the fireball of Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries is the herald of this Season. It has alerted us to the fires of new powerful energies on the way.
In your personal life, do not get too complacent or comfortable. Same-old, same-old will not hold for long. It does not have to be something huge to change your life this Eclipse Season, but at least it is time to let go of old attitudes and beliefs that keep you chained to the conditioning of the Old Age. Its fears and its skepticism of our living in a meaningful and sacred world should not infect your mind, heart and soul anymore.
Open more fully to knowing that we live in a world where all is connected, not separate. There is a wholeness that encompasses dark and light, male and female, yin and yang. We are one naturally, and only our attitudes are what separate us one from another. Yes, we are different, individualized and diverse, but held in the embrace of a unified Universe.
This week March 24-30 brings a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on Wednesday March 27. Attached to this Full Moon are Pluto, Uranus, Venus, Jupiter, and Mars, which make aspect to one another on March 26-28.
So this Full Moon, though not as powerful as an eclipse, will be important and shake things up a bit. It may take you off your normal balance and pull you in different directions. Knowing what to do, or what to decide may be difficult, yet the process you go through will help you to see outside the box with greater insight and perspective.
The Full Moon is at 5:27 AM EDT. Some themes will be “conflict or peace”; thinking of myself or others; listening or defending my self; impulsiveness or thinking things through.
After this Full Moon, we will be in the waning Moon phase, waiting for new activity at the New Moon in Aries, a lunation that will give a spark into the Spring Eclipse Season.
