This is the last full week before the first of two strong eclipses in March.
That will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8. The waters of soul will be triggered to the max at this eclipse, and many are already feeling the deep emotions associated with it already.
The spilling out of feelings and emotions may be quite powerful for some of you. On a deeper level this is about releasing the past and for some the “ghosts” and “demons” from their past.
There is such a new world that has been opening for all of us collectively and for each of us individually. We cannot truly embrace this new phase of life if we are holding on too tightly to personal baggage from the past.
And some of that baggage is tied into personal traumas or emotional wounds that are may not be easy to access, let alone release.
Some of us are in need of some deep soul work so our traumas will not be triggered in such a debilitating manner.
As we enter new relationships, old wounds and traumas may limit our ability to trust and be vulnerable.
As we enter new jobs or careers our past hurts can have us feeling a lack of true confidence that we will do a good job or be truly appreciated by others.
Our moving to a new home or community can bring back traumas from our childhood that have us feeling we will not fit in or be accepted for who we are.
And make no mistake about it, this is huge portal that is opening now, a new portal filled with new experiences, new energies, more magic, a new paradigm for living, etc.
And this portal brings us a big step forward toward the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, which by my calculation will be sometime in the early ’20s.
Look at the state of the American world now, as can be seen in the political fighting between presidential candidates. If you watched the Republican debate last week, you know how ugly and childish it was.
On the surface it makes one doubt we are entering any better world.
But on looking beneath the surface you can see that the old status quo is breaking down, and that is a prerequisite for a new paradigm and age to be built.
The old two party system is corrupt, run by billionaires and mega-corporations and other special interests. We the people have lost our voice.
Yet now with a few of the new candidates, people are coming out in droves because they see the opportunity for “we the people” to take back our power.
Perhaps people are not seeing clearly the character of the candidates who give them hope, but nevertheless people are awakening and it will not be easy to put that genie back in bottle again, so to speak.
Be prepared as other huge events will come our way soon, events that may be quite ugly on the surface, but will help break down the stuck structures and habits from the old world.
And in your personal life it is the same way. Sometimes we can stay in old ways, and even want to stay in stable situations that have lost their spirit and soul. It gets so “comfortable” we do not want to disrupt our lives.
But on a deeper level our spirits and souls are dying and require change and transformation. We would not leave familiar habits without “kicking and screaming” to stay put.
But the waves from this portal will shake us up out of complacency. March will bring emotional shakeups and force the need for deeper processing. April will bring more action, more manifestation, more motivation to move forward in your life.
This week, on Tuesday we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on February 8 at the New Moon in Aquarius.
This last quarter brings us to greater completion, resolution and closure of some issues. There will be some cleaning up to do, some sweeping away of the past, getting prepared for new beginnings at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8.
In the middle of this week, there may be some relationship challenges to deal with as Venus makes aspect to the Uranus/Jupiter quincunx aspect now in the sky and exact on March 6, my birthday.
Uranus is in Aries and Jupiter in Virgo, so there is a mismatch (quincunx) between those two energies. Uranus seeks to awaken, make breakthroughs and generally to motivate us to move forward with our lives.
Jupiter in Virgo seeks to help us to put our affairs in order, to clean up and perfect.
And Venus is caught in the middle of all this, which means our relationships may be challenged by our desires for change and liberation as well as needs to make perfect and create order.
And all the while this week, the oceanic waves of change pushing at the Eclipse Portal will get stronger and stronger.
If you look out onto the global scene, you will see more chaos but also attempts at order in Syria, Libya, and Iraq. You will see more portents of greater troubles in Israel/Palestine; more irrationality with North Korea, more signs of economic dangers, and more fear from Republican leaders that they are losing control or their party with the winning by Donald Trump.
Waves of change are ready to pour through the Eclipse Portal, shaking up our world at its foundation.
Keep your self centered with a perspective of the bigger picture: The Age of Aquarius needs the breakdown of old structures of our dysfunctional and toxic world in order to download new energies and light aligned with this New World.
