This week we move through the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on October 19 at the New Moon in Libra.
Last quarter moon phases are times of coming down, releasing, letting go, and gathering ourselves for the next new moon, in this case on Saturday November 18 at 6:42 AM EST.
As the Moon wanes, it slowly loses its light as it comes closer and closer to that new moon in darkness.
Along with the days getting darker and colder, the mood may get darker too this week. Staying aware of that fact can help not letting oneself to be engulfed by fear or gloominess. Feel your natural feelings, but do not allow them to dominate you.
Add also the fact that the Sun is continuing in Scorpio, and so it is natural now to feel the yin side of life, to know what is real, to feel more deeply, to appreciate the hurt people go through sometimes.
So much has changed over the last year. We are in a new reality since the presidential election last year. And much has also shifted since Eclipse Season, which was highlighted by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo in August.
You can use this last quarter lunar cycle to get your bearings, to ground and center yourself, to allow yourself to feel whatever your feelings are naturally feeling, as long as you do not drown in them.
How has your own life changed over the last year? Have you experienced much change and transformation since then? What more changes do you anticipate? Do you need to speak up about something, as so many are doing now in the world.
And this need will only grow at and after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18.
While we watch the Trump dramas and the volatility of world relations now, sometimes teetering on dangerous; we are also experiencing great transformation beyond old toxic ways.
Power abusers and sexual predators are being called out as we are all being made aware how prevalent such abuse has been and is still. And now the world will change as a result of the increased awareness and stigma of being an abuser.
We are becoming more and more able to change this world into one more aligned with the higher values of the Age of Aquarius.
And part of that change is knowing that No one is inherently better than anyone else, and deserving more privilege and selfish gain.
Age of Aquarius is about equality and diversity within unity. There is no royalty, no superior/inferior, no privilege for being born in a certain family or culture.
And no has the right, no matter what position in life they hold, to abuse their power in order to take from others what they do not want to willingly give.
This challenging the power order and hierarchy will continue and will get more intense.
Much of the volatility in our world will soon become explosions that will eventually clear the air of arrogance, and domination over others.
In the game created in the old paradigm, there are some who have privilege and power and deserve more. In the old paradigm in America, celebrity and wealth and privilege make one better, with more power and deserving of more than others.
Only in that kind of paradigm can someone like Trump become president. Only in that kind of paradigm can slavery and sex trafficking be reality.
Trump and people like Cosby, Weinstein, and Spacey are given this power and privilege in the old paradigm. And they are all now staring us in our faces because the Universe is showing us in stark terms the kind of world we are in, and one we need to change.
And some of you are thinking that this is the way it has always been and will always be. And I tell you I know a place, a dimension, a reality where that does not exist.
And that dimension with its energy and consciousness is wanting to materialize in the Age of Aquarius.
Its light is trying to pour into our consciousness, which is why each of us is challenged to break down the blockages and release old traumas and programming so this light can come in without impediment.
And we are sitting in a time when it feels painful when we are controlled more by the old world, and lighter as we awaken and heal within the new world.
And we will naturally go back and forth until we arrive on the other side of the bridge of transformation.
It is like the breakup of an old dysfunctional relationship. There is fear of loss, deep sense of insecurity, guilt, blame, anger, and concern that no better relationship will ever come to such a failure. That is the pull of your old world.
But there is also a sense of hope for a better life, a sense of liberation, and an opening of one’s heart again.
And that new life, truly a new life, is only possible if old belief systems, old programming, and old mental tapes are released and transformed at a deep level so new light, love, and truth can pour in. And with it healthier relationships.
Often times however, the process is ugly at first, explosive and filled with rage and fear.
But that is necessary sometimes as discomfort, chaos, and unsettled emotions push us to awaken to the truth and make the changes necessary.
And the system of our old Establishment will continue to be challenged more and more by world events and human rebellion. And as it breaks down, we each need to release old beliefs and security systems in our minds in order to transform our lives and transform the culture and world into the new Paradigm and Age.
This week experience the darkening Moon and mood, then get ready for a powerful New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. Then on the 19th Mars will make an explosive square to Pluto.
This is a turning point time period, a time to stoke up again the powers of deep transformation.
Let your self be more empowered and speak your truth. No one can put themselves up as better than you, and tell you what to be or do.
But you enable them if you do not speak up or tell someone who can help, as silence tells abusers or bully people that they can continue their dominance and abuse.
In time the whole idea of perpetrator and victim, predator and prey within the human condition will be diminished and greatly released. You are not a predator or victim, not a predator or prey, and that old way of believing enables bullies and sexual predators to continue to exist.
Without a victim there is no perpetrator. So identifying with being a victim keeps you locked up and chained in an old reality.
Yes you may have been victimized but you are not a victim.
