Mercury is Direct again as we settle down into the beginning of Autumn 2016. Be present now for how your thinking and feelings have been shifting.
The fog is lifting. As it lifts, the Libra frequencies of Autumn bring consciousness to greater awareness of others, more empathy and sensitivity to what others are experiencing.
No matter how much we may try to deny it, relationships have such a great influence on how we feel about ourselves and life.
We may try to shut others out, but unless we live alone and never go outside our home, we will encounter and be influenced by others.
Too bad early education does not have classes on how to be in relationships, or how to be a parent, or how to be in a healthy marriage, etc.
We have developed so much on the material plane, travelled to the Moon, created amazing technology, created flying machines, cures for deadly diseases, and mass communication.
But we do not really know how to get along with one another, how to respect others’ lifestyles and religions and cultures and sexual orientations.
In America now there is a very angry culture war going on that is represented by the Presidential election.
Trump supporters are passionate about the more conservative values he represents for them, and they demonize Clinton and her supporters. Clinton supporters are passionate about the more liberal values she represents for them and they demonize Trump and his supporters. There is little attempt on either side to truly empathize with the other side.
“We are different yet we respect each other’s view” is rarely heard these days..
On one level there is a splitting that is happening at a very core level . But at the same time there is a stong force of Unification growing in each one of us.
We are in the bigger picture- long term- moving toward knowing we are all different, a truly diverse human family, but all One.
And you cannot truly believe in diversity, BTW, if you do not see conservative southerners as part of that diversity- or you cannot see Muslims or North Koreans as part of that diversity, for instance.
Look at the sky and see the perfectly round Moon and Sun. Pick up a Yin/Yang symbol and see dark and light joined in circular oneness. See an astrological circular mandala and view all the signs, planets, and houses joined together as one.
How and why have we split apart so drastically? Our split is why we have those so rich and those so desperately poor; why we have perpetrators and victims; why we demonize those we do not agree with.
I believe in the greater world we are now in for an even greater splitting apart before we can come together as one in an Age of Aquarius.
It is almost impossible to talk rationally with many people now about the Election. There is so much hatred coming from so many people.
It is best for those who want to be a part of the new world to get outside the box of the duality in more ways than one.
If you want to have new world consciousness you are wanting to see life as like a Yin/Yang symbol, dark and light, male and female, yin and yang different but together in Oneness.
You cannot change what is coming to us except to get your consciousness vibrating at the frequency of Diversity in Unity, with love and truth at the core of your soul.
This week, as we begin our Autumn journey, with Mercury Direct and the Eclipses in our rear view mirrors, we will experience Pluto changing directions and a New Moon in Libra.
On Monday September 26, Pluto the ruler of Scorpio and the mythical Guardian of the Underworld will go from Retrograde to Direct.
Pluto is a transformational planet that is quite intense and potentially explosive. As it moves from Retrograde to Direct, its intense energy permeates our collective and individual souls.
It is meaningful that the first Presidential debate is happening as Pluto goes direct.
Expect a most powerful debate, one that will somehow transform the conflict between Clinton and Trump and the people who follow them.
In your personal life you may well experience an increase of passion and intensity in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.
You may also have arguments or inner conflicts that bring you a transformation of a relationship or of your own beliefs or consciousness.
Other powerful world events may be showing themselves in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.
On Friday September 30 there will be a New Moon in Libra at 8:11 PM. Jupiter will be conjunct the New Moon while Mars and Pluto square it in Capricorn.
There will be a lot of energy in this lunation, one that will involve relationship in one form or another.
Libra, being relationship oriented, seeks the bringing of people together to relate with one another. Jupiter conjunct this New Moon serves to inspire such a connection. But Mars and Pluto in Capricorn may put a damper on such a union with doses of practical reality
This New Moon in Libra also brings more beauty to our lives, like the soon to fall leaves of multi colors.
Be aware now of what is fair and just and what constitutes a win/win for both parties. Libra wants grace and peace, harmony and ease.
Some conflicts in the world now will seek peaceful resolution. It may signify a temporary break in the conflict or perhaps even a more permanent settlement.
This New Moon in Libra moves us forward out of Eclipse Season.
I will miss the Forecast for next Saturday the 1st of October, but will resume again on Saturday October 8. I will be visiting the Southwest in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.
The week I will be absent is a mild week astrologially.
However from Wednesday the 5th through Friday the 7th there are some minor planetary rumblings.
Mars will square both Jupiter and Pluto while Venus sextiles Pluto. These aspects should amp up the energy field and tempt people to be more impulsive.
Counteracting that impulsiveness and volatility is Mercury leaving Virgo to enter Libra for around a month. This transition happens on Friday October 7
Mercury in Libra is mentally very balanced and peaceful and a mediator and diplomat in disagreements.
Till we meet again on October 8.
